Subject: Australian UFO Hotline Followups #6280 & #6318


Three calls were made to follow-up on calls made to the hotline.
Unfortunately there was some delay in calling, as there was a
communication problem between Queensland and Jeff Faush=B9s
computer in South Australia. None of these calls yielded a
recent UFO sighting of interest for further pursuit. They are
summarized below:

1) Call 6280 SA? Phoned in on 25/08/07 at 8:54 pm by Graham
Pierce.

I called Mr. P on 9 October. (It turned out that he lives in
Lemming in Western Australia.) He told me that following his
original call to the hotline, he phoned a local TV station and
was told that several people had already called this sighting
in. The sightings were explained as a spotlight display being
given by a lighting company for a promotion. At the time the
weather conditions were cloudy and stormy, and there was some
lightning, which probably contributed to an eerie effect.

2) Call 6280 SA (same as ID above; should be checked)? Phoned in
on 28/08/07 at 10:10 pm by Bradley R.

I called Mr. R on 9 October. He informed me that he had taken
drugs prior to his hotline call, and he now believed that what
he saw was probably a hallucination. As he was at work at the
time of my call, he could not talk very long. I told him I would
call him back in a few days to check if there was anything
further he would like to discuss. I then spoke to him again on
14 October for a follow-up. He felt that what he had seen was
indeed a hallucination, and he did not want to pursue the matter
further.

3) Call 6318 SA. Phoned in on 19/09/07 at 9:16 pm, no name
given.

I called the gentleman who made the hotline call on 9 October.
The gentleman proved to be Jose Duran, who had gained notoriety
through a film he had taken of a UFO in 1979 with a Super 8
camera. As it turned out, Mr. Duran was still trying to =B3reach
someone with a lot of power in the UFO area to prove aliens
really exist.=B2 He seemed to feel that his 1979 film provides
substantial evidence =B3to prove that they were really here.=B2 He
expressed frustration that he was not able to get more attention
or reach someone with the power to take matters further. I gave
him Kevin Robb=B9s phone number with Cosmic Connection, and
encouraged Mr. Duran to contact Kevin. I mentioned the seminar
that Kevin is hosting this December, and thought that Mr. Duran
might obtain further contacts there, or perhaps even be able to
make a short presentation to the attendees.
