Australia’s UFO Files – Your Need to Know

The next episode in our series is Australia’s UFO Files. The National Archives of Australia holds a number of records relating to UFOs, flying saucers and other unidentified aerial phenomena. The documents became available in August 2012 under Australia’s 30-year rule. This rule orders the release of government documents 30 years after they were created. Most of these records date from the 1950’s to the 70’s, when public interest in UFOs was high and many sightings were reported to Commonwealth authorities.

    Will the real Valentich radio transmission be released? That would be interesting. The voice in the re-enactment of the transmission sounds way too relaxed. He would have been freaking out surely.

    Not everyone would freak out. I wouldn’t. These visitors are not friendly at all.

    The Alien Negotiator

    Australians already know and the original audio was played by every radio and television station in the country immediately after the disappearance. So we don’t think much for your 30 year rule. There are so many sighting reports and video that these phenomenons makes them more like squatters than visitors. You really should do some cross referencing and research when releasing misinformation.

    MY wife and I witnessed a UFO on Thursday May 5th 2011 between Dalby & Roma Qld.
    The object was very visible but only for a few seconds due to trees on either side of the road. The sky was clear. The craft was a beautiful blue/green shiny colour, with a white vapor trail behind it. It had no wings or tail and was quite large, about the size of an airliner. it was not very high and not very far in front of us. It was slow and looked like it was descending to land. There was no sound coming from it. I have been asked, did you get a photo of it? Well we would have if we were expecting something strange to appear. Another lady also saw the craft. I didn’t think too much about UFO’s until then, but seeing is believing. I have visited just about very internet site since that day. We will never forget the experience!

    All governments, including ours (Australia) need to come clean about what they know not just for our sakes but their own as well, there is going to be an incident of some sort in the near future that won’t be easily brushed aside or ignored, on that day “the unbelievable will become undeniable”. One can almost imagine the responce from the authorities “Um, yeah….wow an actual alien, never seen one of those before….(talking on a mike) Delta team one, there is a fallen angel, commence operation public relations nightmare!!!
