Australia’s largest mass UFO sighting occurred when more than 200 staff and students at a Melbourne school spotted three circular objects in the sky, which went on to land on the oval.
Government “men in suits” swiftly descended on Westall High School in Melbourne and forbade anyone from discussing the incident which nevertheless received extensive publicity.
In the decades since the 1966 sighting, many have suggested it was in fact a lost weather balloon from the secret joint US-Australian nuclear testing being conducted at Maralinga.
However, witnesses discredit the weather balloon theory and insist the UFOs were glowing, spinning and moving around of their own accord.
Westall High School student Joy Clarke stands on the spot where the UFO was spotted.
