Cattle React

     At 7:10 a.m., February 15, 1963, Charles Brew was milking his cows on his farm in Willow Grove, Australia, about 80 miles southeast of Melbourne, when he saw a UFO descend fast out of the east at about a 45-degree angle.  As the object got to within 75 feet—and about the same altitude—of this witness, it stopped and hovered.
     The UFO had a dome that appeared to be made of some kind of “glass material.”  At the top of the dome was a metallic-looking protrusion five or six feet long.  The gray middle section appeared metallic and the bottom was rotating in a counter-clockwise direction.  There were also “scoop-like protrusions around the side” which seemed to be making a “swishing noise.”  The object itself was “about 25 feet across” and nine feet high.
     The cattle in the area reacted.
     “They done everything bar turn somersaults…,”  Brew said in a tape-recorded interview with Peter Norris, President of the Victorian Flying Saucer Research Society.  “They certainly played up.”
     The UFO then “took off instantly … with a bang.”
     Brew reported that, as he was observing the dome, he got “an awful headache just behind the eyes.”  Medication had no effect, but the ailment wore off that night.
     Both the Australian Air Force and F. A. Berson, of the Division of Meteorological Physics of the official Commonweath Scientific and Industrial Research Organization investigated the report.  Rock samples were taken for analysis.
     “We are unable to come to any firm conclusion as to the nature of the object or manifestation reported,” Benson wrote the Australian UFO group.
