The Hopkinsville Kentucky Aliens

The Hopkinsville Kentucky Aliens

This article will be taking a look at the Hopkinsville Kentucky aliens case of 1955. What were the strange goblin creatures that appeared at the Sutton family farmhouse?


The Hopkinsville Goblin Case

On August the 14th, 1955, a local woman in Dogtown, Indiana, contacted the local press with a strange story.

She claimed that while on a swimming trip along the banks of the Ohio River, she and her friends had noticed a peculiar shiny object above them in the sky.

The Hopkinsville Goblin Case

Without warning, some sort of creature reached through the water and grabbed at one of the group – trying desperately to drag them under the water.

It’s arm, and hands, were fuzzy – as if covered in a type of fur material, it also had claws on the end of each finger.

Exactly one week later, a family gathering took place at a small farmhouse near Hopkinsville


The Hopkinsville KY UFO Incident

The gathering took place at the Sutton family’s farmhouse, and close friend Billy Ray Taylor was attending.

Taylor was outside getting water from the farm’s well when he noticed something large and bright, falling out of the sky. It seemed to land in a nearby field.

He went back in the house and told the gathering what he had just witnessed…but his claims were met with laughter.

Later that evening, the family gathering were shocked when the Sutton’s dog started barking uncontrollably. Billy Ray and Lucky Sutton decided to scan the area outside, to see what was concerning the animal so much.

Within minutes, the two men ran back in the house screaming and looking for the shotguns – they told the family to lock all the doors and stay away from the windows.

The Hopkinsville KY UFO Incident

The shocked family members asked what had happened, and the two young men told them that a number of strange creatures were in the nearby field.

Over the next few hours the family were terrorized by these creatures as they hung to the farmhouse walls, and peered at them through the windows.

The creatures were apparently short with pointed ears, claw-like hands and large round eyes. They wore strange metallic, silver-colored suits.


The Terrifying Hopkinsville Encounter

Many of the creatures were shot through the windows of the home, and at one point, Taylor went outside to shoot at more.

The Terrifying Hopkinsville Encounter

Whenever he hit one of the creatures, the bullet seemed to have little effect – the creature would simply float away further down the yard.

After a couple of minutes outside, one of the ‘goblins’ managed to grab Taylor’s head. He managed to get away, and retreated back to the safety of the house.


The Aftermath

The family eventually managed to get into two separate cars, and make a mad dash into the nearby town, where they went straight to the sheriff’s office.

The sheriff and a number of local and State law enforcement officers, visited the farmhouse soon afterwards.

The creatures were gone, but they found a lot of shotgun shells outside the farmhouse. The family members pleaded with the authorities to search the house – they were petrified and did not want to go back into the home.

The house was searched, and nothing was found.

Just before the search was concluded, the local media turned up and started taking accounts off the family members involved.

The authorities and the media left, a couple of hours later…but the family insisted that the ‘goblins’ reappeared later that night, and started terrorizing them once again!

This family had no reason to lie, and left the farmhouse and moved on within a matter of weeks after the incident.

What do you think?

A twisted hoax designed to get attention…or a terrifying alien encounter?

The Predictions of Edgar Cayce

The Predictions of Edgar Cayce

This article will be taking a look at the famous predictions of Edgar Cayce, also known as ‘The Sleeping Prophet’. Was Cayce really one of the most gifted seers to walk the Earth?

Let’s take a closer look…


Who is Edgar Cayce?

Edgar Cayce was born on a tobacco farming site near Hopkinsville, Kentucky in 1877. He was part of a typically middle-class country family who were well versed in the Bible, and attended church whenever they could.

During his youth, he was often regarded as a strange boy, he wouldn’t go anywhere without his bible, and would frequently complain about having strange visions.

His grandfather tragically died in a pond accident, yet Edgar would constantly insist that he had met up with him on multiple occasions after his death, on the family farm.

Who is Edgar Cayce?

Many of the locals thought that Edgar was somehow linked to the devil – but Cayce’s family completely loved him and fiercely protected the young boy.


The Sleeping Prophet

When Edgar got into his early twenties, he managed to get set up with a job as an insurance salesman…but unfortunately he lost it due to a terrible bout of laryngitis (he couldn’t speak!).

He then moved on to become a photographer, but the laryngitis condition worsened.

His family eventually sent him to a homeopathic physician and hypnotist, who suggested that Cayce should try to correct the condition by inducing himself in a self-hypnotic state.

On the 30th of March 1901, many witnesses watched as Edgar managed to put himself into self-hypnotic state, and diagnose his ailment and prescribe treatment for it.


The Man With the X-Ray Eyes

Word gets around – and things snowballed VERY quickly.

Before long people flocked from far and wide to meet up with the guy dubbed as ‘The Man With the X-Ray Eyes’.

He was very successful, even using a variety of medical terminology to describe what was occurring inside people’s bodies. But, when he was awake, he was pretty much an illiterate man with no medical knowledge…whatsoever!

The media caught onto the story, and a number of newspapers followed his exploits regularly publishing front page articles on his experiences.

The Edgar Cayce Readings

In his sessions, he was known to simply loosen his tie, then lie down on a couch with his arms folded. He would then flutter his eyelids – as if he was slipping into a deep trance. The patient would then ask him questions about their medical problem.

Before long the sessions seemed to be effecting Edgar’s health, and he began suffering with crippling headaches. He and his family decided to pack up and move to a town in Alabama, where he could attempt to leave his past behind.


The Edgar Cayce Readings

Unfortunately, Cayce could not escape his destiny…celebrities were now seeking his advice…

Rumors suggest that Thomas Edison and the U.S. President at the time managed to get appointments with The Man With the X-Ray Eyes. Apparently, big oil companies also got in on the act – trying to use Cayce’s powers to locate new sources of oil!

Cayce eventually hired a stenographer named Gladys Davis in 1923. Her task was to record every word he spoke when he was in his trance states.

During the 20’s and 30’s, Davis recorded astonishing and accurate predictions from Cayce…


The Predictions of Edgar Cayce

Cayce accurately foretold of the Great Depression and even managed to nail the events that led up to the Second World War. He knew the countries involved with the Nazis, and even knew the date that the war would end.

He predicted climate change, the problems with world’s environment would face, President Kennedy’s assassination in 1963…and even went back in time to provide information on ancient civilizations.

The Predictions of Edgar Cayce

Cayce also had a strong link to the subject of Atlantis – in sessions during the 20’s, he described a large continent that existed in the Atlantic ocean that was inhabited by an intelligent and wise group of people.

This civilization were well ahead of their time – creating flying machines and harnessing power from great crystals. But they somehow managed to piss off mother nature…and disappeared into the sea around 10,000 years ago.

The Hull House Devil Baby Story

The Hull House Devil Baby Story

In this article we will be taking a look at the Hull House devil baby story from 1913, when a Chicago address was swamped with locals demanding to catch a glimpse of a satanic child…


Where Was Hull House?

Hull House was built at 800 South Halstead Street, Chicago, in 1856 by Charles J. Hull (that’s where it get’s it’s name!). For a long time now it has been considered to be one of the most haunted properties in the Windy City.

Hull picked this particular neighborhood because it was fashionable for ‘well off’ Chicago families at the time, so it was perfect for his wife and children.

Where Was Hull House?

Unfortunately tragedy struck, and Hull’s wife died suddenly…and his children followed her shortly afterwards.

With his beloved family now gone, a broken Hull decided to leave the property and move to another part of Chicago.

Many locals believe that his wife’s spirit stayed behind to haunt her room at the address.

The Chicago Fire of 1871 ruined the neighborhood, but Hull House managed to survive the flames. It then became a run-of-the-mill home for the elderly, until 1889…


The Devil Baby of Hull House

In 1889, Jane Addams and Ellen Starr co-founded Hull House, a ‘settlement house’ that aimed to help immigrants become more socially acceptable.

The program at Hull House became a complete success, and Addams and Starr went on to open other properties in the city with the same immigrant aid setup.

In 1913, three Italian women burst through the doors of Hull House and demanded to be introduced to something called the ‘Devil Baby’.

The Devil Baby of Hull House

The workers on duty, and the people staying there, had no idea what they were talking about…

But they would not leave – they wanted to see this devil child!

They managed to get the three ladies to leave…but the neighborhood had caught on to the incident, and hundreds of people began turning up to see this so-called devil baby.

Things got out of hand pretty quickly, and before long people from outside of the Near West Chicago area were calling by, people from all over the country wanted to see this satanic child.

This whole, pretty mad episode, lasted for a total of six weeks.


The Devil Baby of Chicago

So who was the Devil Baby of Chicago?

Well, there are two main urban legends that link to this story…

The first involves a devoutly Catholic woman who hung a religious picture on one of the walls in her home. Her husband was apparently atheist, so he tore it down.

In a rage he stated that he would rather have the devil himself in residence rather than the picture on the wall.

About a year later, the woman gave birth to a devil child, and died with shock. The atheist husband then panicked, and left the child on the doorstep of Hull House.

The Devil Baby of Chicago

The second urban legend centers around a man who’s wife gave him six daughters – but he obviously wanted a son!

In a heated argument one night, he told his wife that he would rather raise the devil himself than have another female child.

Guess what happened when his wife fell pregnant about a week later…

Both these ‘myths’ are believed to have some sort of element of truth about them – apparently a strange child was raised inside Hull House at one point in time.

It was a peculiar looking child that was capable of the greatest of blasphemies – resulting in the main owners of the house getting it baptized…or exorcised.

Another myth points to this exorcism not going to plan, and the child spending the remainder of it’s life locked in the attic.


The Hull House Devil Baby Story

In modern times, numerous workers and renovators have reported hearing the ghostly cries of a child, coming from the attic area of the house.

What are your thoughts on the subject – do you believe there is some weight behind the Devil Baby story?

Or do you believe it is nothing more than a urban legend?

The Visions of Oakabella Homestead

The Visions of Oakabella Homestead

This article will be taking a look at the strange visions the current Oakabella Homestead owner had before she purchased her dream property…and the ghosts and spirits that still reside there…


Dreams Can Come True…

The current owner of the Oakabella Homestead had spent over forty years dreaming about a white house that sat in a hot and dusty area. These dreams were actually giving her a glimpse into the future – visions of a house she would own outside of Geraldton, Western Australia.

The decades of strange dreams took place when she was living in Canada, but in 1989, she decided to up roots and move on to Perth, Australia.

During the first few months of her new life in Perth, the dream became more vivid – much stronger and much more frequently.

Dreams Can Come True...

One day she decided to take a short road trip with one of her new Australian friends…and she was shocked to end up at the front door of the house she had been seeing in her dreams, for over four decades.


Oakabella Homestead History

The Homestead was first established by a James Drummond back in 1851…but it did not go down well with the local indigenous tribes.

The property ended up being built on one of their important religious sites –  and they were not going to sit back and let that happen, without a fight.

It wasn’t long before a full-on local war broke out between the natives and the pioneers. The indigenous population lost the fight, and also lost of large number of their tribesmen in the violence.

The Oakabella Homestead eventually went through several owners before William and Amy Jackson purchased the property in 1910. They opted to use the land for simple farming chores, and also bred horses for the British Army in India.

Oakabella Homestead History

History tells us that the Jackson family suffered from numerous child deaths over the decades, due to disease and freak accidents.

In 1973, George Jackson met an untimely end when he sat down to clean his gun…which went off accidentally, and killed him.

The property was eventually closed for refurbishment in 1995 and then opened again to the public in 1997, for tours. During the refurbishment, workers at the property found cat bones in the door and window frames.

These animal bones are apparently an old fashioned way of warding off demons and spirits.

The current owner of the Homestead has gone to great pains to keep the property as authentic as possible – numerous artifacts of 1800’s pioneering life are still on display there.

The Portal of Spirits


The Portal of Spirits

Many of the locals to the area believe that the Oakabella Homestead is a portal for the spirits – it is somewhere they can meet and appear to the living.

Numerous visitors have reported coming face to face with the ghostly figures of past owners, and children frequently claim to have met with the spirit of a little boy.

The current owners believe that the loudest, and most active spirit at the property, is that of George Jackson. They believe his ghost is behind the frequent banging sounds inside the Homestead’s walls.

The Yamaji people are the original owners of the Homestead’s land, and they point out that there were ancient spirits linked to the landscape, many centuries before the property was built. They also believe that these spirits have the power to influence your dreams…

The Fred Valentich Disappearance

The Fred Valentich Disappearance

This article will be taking a look at the mysterious Fred Valentich disappearance of 1978 – could it be attributed to a UFO that numerous people reported witnessing that evening?

Let’s take a closer look…


The Disappearance

At approximately 7 pm on October the 21st, 1978, a young pilot named Fred Valentich mysteriously disappeared.

Due to his body and aircraft never being found – the young man is presumed dead.

But…many ufologists believe that Valentich did not simply crash and die…but rather he was killed or abducted by a UFO…


Fred

Born on the 9th June, 1958, Frederick Valentich live with his family in Melbourne, Australia. He had always had an interest in planes and when he was old enough, he joined up with the youth Air Cadets.

He attempted to get into the Royal Australian Air Force on two separate occasions, but unfortunately he did not hold enough qualifications to pass the entry requirements.

Fred

Valentich then decided to aim all his efforts towards becoming a commercial airline pilot. He was issued his student pilot license and then private pilot license in 1977.

Valentich’s family also claimed that their son was a bit of a ufologist, and regularly studied reports of UFO’s he’d picked up from the Air Force.


The Flight

On the day of his disappearance, Valentich handed in a flight plan that suggested he was heading towards King Island in the south-eastern state of Australia.

This journey would have taken him through an area known as Bass Strait – well known for maritime disappearances and shipwrecks (it was a section of sea between Tasmania and the mainland).

He took off at 6:15 pm and at about 7 pm he radioed in to Melbourne air traffic control asking about any other aircraft in the area – he was told that he was the only flight in that specific area.

He then informed traffic control that he was looking straight at an extremely large aircraft that had four large landing lights. He also noted that this air vessel was traveling at fast speed and had passed about 1,000 feet above him.

The Flight

Valentich then went on to describe the strange vessel in more detail. He claimed that it seemed metallic and had a strange green light shining out of it…

Then he reported that it had vanished!

Moments later he radioed back in to air control claiming the vessel had reappeared and was hovering right next to him – it was definitely NOT an aircraft.

He then reported that he was experiencing engine problems with his plane…

Air control then heard about 20 seconds of a strange scraping or scratching sound before the communication fell silent.

Valentich’s plane never made it to King Island.

A search was put together that combed the Bass Strait for over a week…but they never managed to recover Valentich or his plane.


The Valentich UFO Link

Twenty minutes before Valentich reported engine trouble, a man near Cape Otway managed to capture an image of a fast moving flying object leaving the water in one of his photographs.

When Valentich’s mysterious disappearance became public knowledge, numerous people came forward claiming that they had seen extremely bright lights in the sky, around about the time the young pilot radioed in to air control.

The Valentich UFO Link

A handful of witnesses even claimed to have seen Valentich’s plane in a steep dive with a strange bright light following it.

Authorities managed to keep the young pilot’s description of the UFO under tabs until 1982, when it finally became public knowledge. Many UFOlogists believe that this initial secrecy points to an extraterrestrial cover up.

Could Dinosaurs Still Exist?

Do Dinosaurs Still Exist?

The blockbuster Hollywood movie Jurassic Park suggested that dinosaurs could live through our planet’s current conditions – many cryptozoologists even believe that certain dinosaur species survived the big bang.

Could dinosaurs still exist?

Let’s take a closer look…


The Mokèlé-Mbèmbé

Abbé Lievain Bonaventure was a French missionary who published works on his travels through the Congo River region in 1776.

Some of his writings told about a huge clawed monster footprint he had come across that was over three feet long.

It is thought that this is the earliest known reference to the western world of Mokèlé-Mbèmbé – a famous water beast that pops up in Congo folklore.

This beast tends to divide opinion – certain locals believe it is a real beast, of flesh and bone, whilst others believe it is a powerful spirit.

The Mokèlé-Mbèmbé

Over the last few decades, numerous cryptozoologists have taken an interest in this beast. After a lot of research, and interviews with the local tribe people – they believe that this creature is in fact a Sauropod dinosaur.

Numerous expeditions, dating back as far as over two centuries ago, have set out to try and capture the Mokèlé-Mbèmbé.

Over the last decade a number of television shows have filmed documentaries following attempted expeditions to find proof on the creature.

Unfortunately, none of them have been able to locate any concrete proof on the creature’s existence…but many of them have encountered large unexplained tracks near rivers.

Some expedition members have even reported hearing loud ‘demonic’ roars throughout the night.

Back in 1959, a group of missionaries stumbled across a tribe who told them that the Mokèlé-Mbèmbé had recently been captured and killed.

The tribesmen who slayed the beast, apparently devoured it’s meat and died shortly afterwards.

They believe that the creature’s meat still harnessed some of it’s amazing powers – and that’s what killed the men who consumed it.


Lake Tele

In 1988 a Japanese film crew captured some aerial footage over Lake Tele for a documentary…and it seemed to capture a beast that looked like the Mokèlé-Mbèmbé.

do some dinosaurs still exist

The footage shows some sort of object causing a disturbance and a noticeable wake in the water – it appears for about 15 seconds in total.

Numerous cryptozoologists believe that this could well be the fabled beast…whilst many skeptics point to the fact that it is probably some sort of elephant.


African Dinosaurs

Another breed of dinosaur, that natives believe still lives in Africa, is the Emela-ntouka species.

On top of this there are reports of the Ngoubou, which is said to have 6 horns on it’s head and the Nguma-monene – a dragon-like creature that also lives in the water.

In 1932 two photographs surfaced from the Congo that captured the beast known as Kasai Rex. This beast was apparently in the process of attacking, and killing a rhinoceros when the images were snapped.

do dinosaurs exist today

The photographs were eventually proven to be fakes, but there have been numerous other reports covering this Tyrannosaur over the years.

One of these reports claims that a man was killed when driving his jeep through the valley. Apparently Kasai Rex appeared from nowhere and snatched him right out of the jeep as it sped past!


Do Dinosaurs Still Exist?

These are just some of the modern-day dinosaur reports that are floating about – there are many, many more.

Australia has the Burrunjor, whilst Scotland has the world famous Nessie (The Loch Ness Monster)…

The Firefighter Handprint

The Firefighter Handprint

This article will be covering the mysterious firefighter handprint that was visible on a Chicago fire station’s window for two decades. Was this the ghostly residue of Francis Leavy – a firefighter who predicted his own death, when he was cleaning that very same window in 1924?

Let’s take a closer look…


The Prediction

Career firefighter Francis Leavy, was working through his daily chores at the Chicago Fire Department, when his colleagues noticed him suddenly go silent. When asked what was wrong, he responded that he had the strangest feeling that he was going to die that day.

When he experienced this feeling, he was in the process of washing one of the Fire Department’s windows.

It was April the 18th, 1924, when Leavy made this spooky statement…and several blocks away, a building known as ‘Curran’s Hall’ suddenly caught fire.

firefighters handprint

Leavy was one of the firefighters that responded to the building’s blaze at 7 pm that night. The fire proved to be a worthy adversary for the fire crew of the Chicago Fire Department.

After about 30 minutes of the firefight, the roof of the building collapsed, killing the firefighters inside, and many of the firefighters outside as well.

In all nine firefighters were killed in the collapse, among them, Francis Leavy. On top of this, one civilian died and twenty firefighters were seriously injured.

Career firefighter Francis Leavy


The Ghostly Firefighter Handprint

A couple of days after the tragic events at Curran’s Hall, firefighters at the Chicago Fire Department noticed a strange stain appear on a window pane, in the engine house.

Workers to the area began trying to remove the stain by washing it, then scratching at it…but nothing seemed to budge it!

As each day passed, the stain became clearer and clearer – it soon became obvious that it was the shape of a handprint.

Many of Leavy’s work colleagues were disturbed by this handprint as it was in the exact same spot where the fireman had experienced his premonition. The authorities in charge of the fire station decided it would be best to get rid of the handprint.

They hired professional window cleaners and chemical solvents, to even trying to scratch it off – nothing would remove the ghostly handprint.

The Ghost Handprint

Some of the firemen suggested getting rid of the pane of glass completely…but by this point, many of Leavy’s friends had changed their tune. They believed it was best to leave this paranormal event alone – don’t mess with what you don’t understand!

So, the handprint was left in place for many years, as a reminder of Francis Leavy – the firefighter who knew he was knocking on heaven’s door.

Unfortunately, in 1944, an idiot paperboy managed to throw a delivery straight through the window…destroying all traces of the fireman’s ghostly handprint.

The Curse of the Superman Actors

The Curse of the Superman Actors

This article will be looking at the Hollywood curse of the Superman actors, thought to have taken the lives of two leading men that played ‘The Man of Steel’…


The Detective Comics Hit

The Superman character is believed to have launched the superhero genre back in 1933. Created by two high school students, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the idea was eventually sold to Detective Comics in 1938.

The Man of Steel became an instant hit, and appeared in numerous comic book versions, radio and TV episodes, animated adventures and newspaper comic strips.

The character eventually got moved into the Hollywood big-time – having a list of feature films clinging onto his name and popular video game releases.

The Detective Comics Hit

But these Superman movies have slowly become associated with superstition and fear. In the darkest corners of Hollywood – rumors of a curse are whispered.

It is said that there is a powerful hex linked to the superhero character that attaches itself to the lives of any actors who have portrayed the hero on film or in television productions.

In fact, many agents complain that this curse has made it near enough impossible to find actors that will take the risk in playing the part…


Actors Who Played Superman Movies

The whole idea of the curse started off in 1951 with the film Superman and the Mole Men – the lead role was taken on by an actor named George Reeves, who went on to star in Adventures of Superman, a TV series.

Reeves was due to get married in 1959 but was found shot, in his home, days before.

Actors Who Played Superman Movies

The public thought it was an obvious, yet strange, suicide at first…until details emerged that the gun found at the scene did not contain ANY fingerprints from the famous Hollywood actor.

His death was eventually ruled as a suicide…but not many people believed this.

Christopher Reeve eventually took on the superhero role between 1977 to 1987. He ended up starring in four popular feature length movies.

Tragically, Reeve was thrown from his horse during a cross-country equestrian event in 1995, and ended up being paralyzed from the neck down.

Reeve went on to live a wheelchair-bound life for a decade after the accident…but eventually succumbed to heart failure due to the severity of his injuries.

Christopher Reeve as Superman

The curse is thought to be so powerful that it has even touched the cast around the main character of Superman.

There are examples of these side-characters developing severe mental issues, loss of career and in some extreme cases, loss of life.

Now it’s over to you – what are your thoughts on the curse of the Superman actors?

The Carmen Winstead Story

The Carmen Winstead Story

This article will be covering the tragic Carmen Winstead story and the paranormal chain letter incidents that followed the 17-year-old’s death.


The Carmen Winstead Death

Carmen Winstead was a run-of-the-mill Indiana teenager who was tragically killed when she was pushed into a sewer by five other students. The incident happened when her school was in the process of completing a fire drill.

Carmen had been having a few problems with a group of female students – she stood out as a little different therefore she was picked on occasionally…and that is exactly what happened when she was pushed down the sewer entrance.

It was supposed to be a joke – a way of embarrassing Carmen in front of the school…but she did not reemerge from the sewer.

The Carmen Winstead Death

The police were brought to the scene and they soon located and recovered her body in the sewer. Her neck had been completely broken, probably happening when her head hit the metal ladder on the way down.

The students at the school were questioned but none of them witnessed what the group of girls had done – these girls did not own up to their actions. Instead, they told the authorities that it was a clumsy accident – Carmen had simply fallen through the open sewer cover.


The Carmen Winstead Chain Letter

A couple of months after the tragedy, numerous students at Carmen’s school started receiving emails and messages on their myspace accounts titled ‘They Pushed Her’.

These messages contained the truth about what really happened on the day of the fire drill.

The messages did not contain specifics on who pushed Carmen into the sewer…but they did warn that the guilty party needed to come forward…otherwise there would be horrible consequences!

The Carmen Winstead Chain Letter

Most of the students thought that this message was nothing more than a sick joke…but five girls got REALLY worried.

They had a right to be worried – within several days of the message going viral, each of the girls was found killed and disfigured in the same sewer Carmen had died.

Many now believe that Carmen is a very real entity, that is hell-bent on informing the world about her murder. Not content with the deaths of the guilty party, she will visit anyone who does not believe the story and forward it on to others.


Is the Carmen Winstead Story True?

Well yes, these events apparently happened in 2006…but the ‘entity’ of Carmen Winstead is regarded as a bit of an urban legend.

Some skeptics claim that Carmen never really existed – that this story started as a hoax and went from there. Many believe this…but if they receive an email entitled ‘They Pushed Her’…they always forward it…just in case!

Others believe that these events DEFINITELY took place, but they were in another part of the world. As a side note – this subject is often researched through search engines from various parts of the Philippines.

What are your thoughts on the Carmen Winstead story?

Do you believe in the Carmen Winstead chain letter?

If you do not forward the letter with the words ‘They Pushed Her’ in the title…will the spirit of Carmen come after you?

The Westall High School UFO Incident

The Westall High School UFO Incident

This article will be covering the Westall high school UFO incident in Melbourne, Victoria, in 1966, when more than 200 students witnessed something strange in the skies above them…


The Westall UFO 1966

Mid-morning, on April the 6th, 1966, students of Westall Primary and Westall High School were busy at their work when the silence was broken by some sort of commotion outside the school buildings.

The students that were playing in the schoolyard were all looking up to the skies – tracking the progress of a strange flying object passing over the schools.

Westall UFO

The teachers noticed this disturbance, and one by one they joined the students out on the yard. Suddenly, the ‘craft’ descended behind a group of trees and seemed to land in an area known locally as ‘The Grange’.

The flying object was about the same size as a regular family car and it seemed to move silently – there was no sign of any engine noise. It was shaped like a saucer and it had a silver/blue/purple color to it’s body.

A young boy who’s parents owned some land in The Grange, was playing nearby and witnessed the saucer descend and touch down on the ground. He quickly went and got his father to the scene. The father examined the area where his son claimed the craft had landed, and found a circular pattern that had heat-damaged the grass somehow.

The Westall UFO 1966

Two girls from the nearby high school also managed to witness the saucer landing in The Grange. They apparently got within 6 meters of the strange object before feeling slightly ill. They returned to school and one of them starting vomiting violently – she was taken away by ambulance and was never seen again at the school.


The Westall UFO Incident

Many of the locals managed to witness the UFO taking off again. They claim that 5 military aircraft surrounded the saucer as it glided across the sky, circling it.

After the incident, the local military denied that these planes were present. The pilots never came forward and no official reports were penned by the army.

Within hours, the police and army officials had cordoned off the area in The Grange where the UFO had landed. They quickly got to work on the area and burned away the grass where the saucer had been seen landing.

The Westall UFO Incident

The two schools were obviously full of students that could not stop talking about the strange incident. The headmistress of the high school was taken aside by ‘men in suits’ and told she was not allowed to talk about what had happened to anybody. She was also told to address the students and make sure they kept their mouths shut!

The media did eventually manage to get hold of the story, and a TV news channel broadcast the story…but the footage has since gone missing. It simply vanished from the TV station’s archives and never returned…

Numerous explanations were put forward by the authorities – but nobody really bought them. First of all it was a weather balloon, then it was nylon target drogue…maybe it was a prototype aeroplane or a local military operation?

I doubt it…
