The Westall UFO Encounter is one of Australia's most infamous UFO sightings. It occurred on April 6th, 1966, in the suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria, where over 200 witnesses saw a UFO descend and land in a nearby field.
At around 11 a.m. on the day of the encounter, students and teachers from the Westall High School reported seeing a strange object in the sky. The object was described as a shiny silver or chrome-like, disc-shaped craft with a dome on top.
The UFO was seen to descend rapidly and silently, and land in a nearby paddock. Witnesses claimed that the craft remained stationary for a few minutes, before lifting off and disappearing at high speed.
Many of the witnesses, including students and teachers, reported feeling a sense of shock and disbelief at what they had seen. Several people rushed to the site where the object had landed, but found no trace of the craft or any evidence that it had ever been there.
The Westall UFO Encounter remains one of the most well-documented and compelling UFO sightings in Australian history. Despite numerous investigations, no definitive explanation for the sighting has ever been found.
Many theories have been put forward to explain the encounter, ranging from the mundane to the extraordinary. Some have suggested that the UFO was a secret experimental aircraft, while others have proposed that it was a genuine extraterrestrial craft.
Whatever the truth of the Westall UFO Encounter, it remains a fascinating and mysterious event that continues to capture the imagination of UFO enthusiasts and skeptics alike.
