JP tells me he has a casual curiosity about such phenomena, and certainly couldn’t be described as a ‘UFO nut’. He wasn’t convinced either way, until now. The way the small object moved across the sky with “awesome speed” merged with the larger one, and vanished in an incredible vertical ascent left him awestruck.
“In all my years travelling with work, all the years of watching the day and night skies, walking back to my car I witnessed my first UFO experience, it happened in Korumburra.Wow!”
Perhaps it is not so surprising. The Strzlecki Ranges, just to the north, are filled with deep hidden valleys covered in tree ferns and tall mountain ash, amongst the green pastured hills on the edges of the Ranges are some very peculiar shaped mountains, long barrow shaped mounds and giant grass covered pyramids. The hillsides are dotted with black and white Friesian cows. As any survey of popular mythology will tell you, there seems to be a definite correlation between cows and aliens. And just to the south is Bass Strait, a zone notorious for UFO activity.
Those with an inflexible view will say there is a small airfield 50km away at Tooradin, and a Royal Air Force base at East Sale, 150km to the north east, and that the extraordinary motion of the object was perhaps a misperception, or an optical illusion. Not a UFO, but an ordinary aircraft. But then, just follow a line up a little to the right of the road in the photo. Undoctored, unphotoshopped, we have the picture to prove it.
