Animal Reaction Feature:
A Bull Terrier was riding in a car with a couple when an object dove toward the car. The witnesses stopped the car and got out as the object hovered above the highway.  The Bull Terrier, normally first out of the car when it stopped, remained crouched in the back seat with its hackles up and refused to move.

Two witnesses, Dr. Antonin Kukla, formerly a physician, and Mrs. Audrey Lawrence were driving about 7:40 p.m. when an object dived toward their headlights.  They stopped and turned off their headlights and ran to the side of the road.  The object stopped and hovered above the highway rocking gently.   Initially an orange color when first seen, it changed to a fluorescent green glow as it hovered. [The 1965 Archives referenced below indicate the object was green and then turned orange.]  Its shape was compared to a squashed football.  The object drifted west and eventually disappeared soundlessly.

No sound, no EM effects, and no physiological effects were reported.

There was a local independent report of a camp lit by a green glow as something passed over, but the time of that report is unknown.

Australian Encounter

During the first week of August, two residents of Nedlands, West Australia jumped from their car, fearing a UFO was above to hit it.  It was close to 8 p.m., and Dr. Antonin Kukla, formerly a physician in Europe, and Mrs. Audrey Lawrence were driving near Carnarvon when a flying object dived toward their headlights.

Dr. Kukla hurriedly stopped and switch off the lights.  As he and Mrs. Lawrence ran to the side of the road, the UFO stopped and hovered above the highway.

It was rocking gently, Dr. Kukla said later.  And its orange color as it dived had changed to a fluorescent green glow.

The doctors bull terrier, usually first out of the car when it stopped, was crouched in the back seat, hackles up.  It refused to budge.

Dr. Kukla said the object was shaped like a squashed football.

I had the fear that whatever it was, it was not man-made,he reported, after the UFO had left the scene.

The sighting appeared partly confirmed by resident Ron Butler, owner of nearby Mooka Station.  Butler said that his entire camp had been lit up by a greenish glow when somethingpassed over it, thought he co
