Message: Please call back, I saw a UFO last Saturday night 17th
1 1999 would like to report it:

Report taken by Telephone: St George is approximately 780km
west of Brisbane, Bolloon 100km west of St George.

Joe Said: I was on night shift Saturday 17th driving a tractor
out in the cotton fields, I turned the tractor around to the
west, when I saw this bright yellow light, it was oblong shape,
size of a shirt button at arms length.

At first I thought it was plane with a bright light, so I kept
working not paying much attention to it for a further 5 minutes.
I turned the tractor around again and saw that this light was
still there.

I thought this is strange if it's a plane how come its still in
the same place. So I turned of the tractor to see if I could
hear any engine noise No sound hum, I climbed out of the cab to
get a better look, then the light moved at great speed to the
right and stopped, it did it a second time.

I thought wow that's no plane so I got back in the cab and lock
the doors. I sat there just watching it, the object started to
fad from a bright yellow to 2 bright bluish purple star objects
about a meter apart, it was as though they where not attached in
the middle because you could see between them, they both started
to move very quickly "then I lost them".

Q. How did you feel?

A. Bl****dy scared I never believed in UFOs before but now I
suppose I'll have to.

Joe said: I rang the St George police Monday morning and asked
if anyone else had reported seeing anything strange that night,
the policeman on duty said yes there had been quite a few
reports on Saturday night of lights in the sky. The police said
they where in liaison with the aviation authorities to find out
what it was, the police where of the opinion that it was a crop

Q. What do you think Joe,

A. Ha!! It was! No! Crop plane I have been working these fields
for many years and I know my planes, this thing had no sound and
traveled faster than any crop plane I've ever seen before. I'm
going to keep intouch with the police to see if they get anymore
information, will call you iif they do. (U/I)

Report form sent out.
