The UFO Phenomenon

Man describes 'UFO air battle' encounter

What did Phil and his brother witness that night ? Image Credit: PD - Max Pixel
UFO witness Phil Tindale has described in detail an experience he'd had as a boy in South Australia.
The mysterious sighting, which took place at 9.30pm on February 7th, 1980, began when his brother Rob called out to draw his attention to something very strange in the sky near their home in Aldgate.

Looking towards the south-east of Adelaide, they saw a yellow object 'bobbing about' above the trees approximately 1km away, before a second object emitting a red light also appeared nearby.

For the next 15 minutes, the boys watched in amazement as the red object seemed to zoom towards the yellow object, then stop and reverse - as if attempting to provoke a reaction.

The two objects then began to zoom across the sky in a zig-zag pattern, as though engaged in a duel.

A third witness - 21-year-old farmhand Daryl Browne - claimed to have seen a yellow object 'shaped life a speedboat' actually crash into some trees near to where he was working.
The location perfectly matched where the two brothers had seen the objects in the sky.

"I have no doubt that we are being visited, both from my own experience and speaking with others," said Phil. "Many sightings do have earthly explanations."

"Unfortunately these reports often muddy the water and make it difficult for investigators to piece this puzzle together."

"I suppose that it is clear to me that this technology is well beyond our own capabilities."

"Even if skeptics are not satisfied, the experience demonstrated to me that something beyond our own intelligence is visiting Earth. The extraterrestrial hypothesis seems a very likely fit."

You can check out Phil's full story in the video below.

Hey there, old friend, Im glad you are still here. Doing really good, and I hope you are to. Nothing new here as you might have suspected, but I stop by every now and then if I have a couple of minutes... New faces but the same old UFO guessing game, hardcore believers and CGI bs. Still not even close to that final Exhibit A Im looking for.

thanks for locating that story.  It seems this AP wire is the only contemporary story out there.  It doesn't shed much light.  Seems within a day the UFO group was there trying to interview the "farm hand".  Unnamed Police wouldn't comment about the damage to the trees.  To me it appears to be a hoax that made it to the AP wire and the guy who claims he and his brother witnessed the lights fighting before the crash in the trees are using this old story to base their claim.  Seems we should find several people from Stirling that either remember the incident personally or people who rememb...

Yeah i could try to ring around and talk to the local paper to access their archives, locate some possible witnesses etc. Your assumption is likely correct, a hoax and some guy bases his story on that. But even if we did find witnesses and further stories it's not going to sway anyones opinion on the matter is it? What would anyone accomplish in doing that? We likely could find more stories on this incident but that'll just add more anecdotes that nobody cares about so I'm not going to bother...  I wish something compelling would come out of it but as history shows nothing will. Nothing s... [More]

You have a point, but what i cant be convinced of is a young man sees what he believes is alien craft crash into a tree and he doesnt check it out and grab a piece, we are likely talking something that would change the world as we know it, that is of course if something alien crashed in a tree. In the past i have let my OCD get carried away i have researched and investagated interesting cases of paranormal supernatural otherwordly and it sucks, 99% of the time i found bits and pieces that ruined the case for me, you know debunked it so to speak, many cases that sound really cool at first dont ...

I thought we had put the last nail in the coffin of this fairy tale a long time ago?
