Willow Grove, Australia
February 15, 1963



Animal Behavior Feature:

Cattle (milk cows) reacted as a domed disc descended to a 75 foot altitude about 75 feet away from them where it hovered making a “swishing noise.”  The witness described the cattle as follows: “They done everything bar turn somersaults….,”  and added that “They certainly played up.”  (They were spooked—jw.)

Joan Woodward, Animal Behavior Specialist:
At 7:10 am, as Charles Brew was milking his cows, an object descended quickly at a 45 degree angle until positioned as described above.  Length of time of observation is not mentioned. After some period of time, the object took off with a bang.

The object was described as 25 feet across and 9 feet high, with a dome of a glass-like material with a 5-6 foot metallic-looking protrusion coming from it.  The middle section (below the dome) was a metallic-like gray, and the bottom was rotating counter-clockwise.  Scoop-like protrusions around the side seemed to be making the swishing sound.

Brew reported a bad headache that started when he was looking at the dome did not wear off until that night.

No EM effects were mentioned.
