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.
