UFO Era

Classic ufo files from the electronic boards of last millennium

I have found a site called UFO Era that I think many of you will be interested in.  It has archives of the older material which inspired this genre.  The site includes a section with John Lear's early material and much more of interest.  I'll quote from the site for a full description.

Do you remember the computer days of the 1980s and early 1990s? If you do you probably remember the Bulletin Boards and Usenet as the first form of online forums. Back then software was much simpler as computers had very limited processing capabilities. There was not much beyond text and simple graphics. The internet was a much "cleaner" place. There was little noise and spam as most people using computers came from educational institutions or were computer geeks. This meant higher quality information and much less information recycling.

This site is all about ufo related text files from those times. It is a collection of various BBS and Usenet posts on all kinds of topics. I hope you will find reading them as interesting as I did.

UFO Incident - Gosford, Australia - 1994



Quote
Published: 2:57 AM 1/7/2012

Gosford, Central Coast Australia, 1994

On early Christmas morning near the city of Gosford, Australia, the first sighting occurred. According to testimony from former Air Traffic Controller Lindsay Carter, it was a quiet morning as he headed north from Sydney.

Peering out his front windshield, Carter saw about a half-mile away, a silver, metallic object in the sky. The object was crossing from South to North.

Another eyewitness to the object was housewife June O'Hare, who saw the UFO move over the water. The object was surrounded by lights.

By New Year's Eve, numerous calls were made to local authorities reporting a UFO, according to Sgt. Bob Wenning. All of the callers reported a huge, ball-shaped object with bright lights on the bottom. Witnesses observed the UFO sucking up water from the lake.

Other witnesses claimed to have watched the unknown object move over the waters for as long as 15 minutes. They stated that they had never seen anything that looked like what they saw that day.

Eyewitness Margaret Howe watched the same object. She reported lights coming up out of the water, and the object moving over the water. She could hear the sound of rushing water as it was being sucked into the mysterious craft. After a moment or two, the UFO returned the object to the lake.

The "Weekly Sun" newspaper reported the incident. The article spawned numerous callers to phone the newspaper, saying that they too, had seen the UFO. The group of callers represented a vast cross section of the citizenry; lawyers, policemen, teachers, and more.

Some of the witnesses described several beams of light emitted from the craft's bottom to the water, with the surface of the water highly disturbed. Other callers reported being awakened by a loud sound, with their pets acting strangely. The police were baffled by the reports.

UFO researcher Moira McGhee launched an investigation with eyewitness reports, and calls to any and all possible launching sites for airplanes, helicopters, or any flying craft. These inquiries brought no evidence as to the origin of the UFO.

The appearance of a UFO moving over the waters near Gosford in 1994 has never been explained.

Yeah  Time to get back to work :D  Here is a video report on that one. Eye witnesses and animations... nicely done.  Hundreds of witnesses. This may need a thread on its own later

ETA Seems Karl12 has that in his latest Australian UFO thread....

I suggest muting the video.  The guy is a bit annoying in his comments after while.

However there are some very interesting clips.  If they are hoaxes, I will give them credit for being original!

The only people in the world, it seems, who believe in conspiracy theory, are those of us that have studied it.    Pat Shannon
