Westall 1966: Australia's Largest Mass UFO Sighting!

Many Australian's have never heard of it, but above a school in 1966, Westall, Australia encountered it's largest mass UFO sighting. The documentary (which we have written about previously, in 2009) is something all Australians should remember and watch. If any Aussie's have further information on this important event please respond to this post.
Photos taken of the event were confiscated from the school teacher by the Australian military!

At approximately 11.00 am on Wednesday, 6 April 1966, a class of students and a teacher from Westall High School (now Westall Secondary College) were just completing sports on the main oval when an object, described as being a grey saucer shaped craft with a slight purple hue and being about twice the size of a family car, was alleged to have been seen. Witness descriptions were mixed: Andrew Greenwood, a science teacher, told The Dandenong Journal at the time that he saw a silvery-green disc. 

According to witnesses the object was descending and then crossed and overflew the high school's south-west corner, going in a south-easterly direction, before disappearing from sight as it descended behind a stand of trees and into a paddock at The Grange in front of the Westall State School (primary students). After a short period (approximately 20 minutes) the object - with witnesses now numbering over 200 - then climbed at speed and departed towards the north-west. As the object gained altitude some accounts describe it as having been pursued from the scene by five unidentified aircraft which circled the object.

Excellent doc. Outrageous that the USAF and even Congress had a hand in the cover up of an Australian event, but hardly surprising. Thanks for showing it.

Thanks Matt for posting this! Living only 5 minutes away from this location, it is mind blowing that this happened in our own back yard here in Australia and is the first time I have heard of this story. This very much resemblance the OTC-X1 - but to think this was being trialed on Australian soil/air space is awesome! Keep up the great work!
