KNOWLES FAMILY ENCOUNTER
A mother and her three adult sons were driving from Melbourne to Perth in 1988 when they saw a glowing egg-shaped object in the middle of the road.
The family said they got out of the car to inspect the humming object and, terrified of what they saw, attempted to drive away at speeds of up to 200km/h.
However they said the UFO then chased the car and picked it up off the ground (artist’s impression on right).
While Faye and her sons Patrick, 24, Sean, 21, and Wayne, 18, were in the air they were speaking as if in slow motion.
Eventually, the terrified family escaped and arrived at a servo near the South Australia-West Australia border.
The car was covered in soot and had dents in the roof.
Faye Knowles and her sons Patrick, Sean and Wayne.
