Family observes glowing, disc-shaped UFO with light beam for 15 minutes

Date: June 25, 1973
Location: Dundurrabin, Australia

On about 25 June, members of the Dorrington family observed a large, disc-shaped UFO for about 15 minutes between 6.30 and 7.00 p.m. The whole of the object was surrounded by a green glow. There appeared to be a rotating, brilliant red light around the middle of the object. A V-shaped green 'solid' beam seemed to oscillate up and down. This sighting occurred during a flap in the area of two small timber towns, Tyringham and Dundurrabin.

One of the more frustrating aspects of researching the UFO phenomenon is its unpredictability. One of the mainstays of the scientific method is the repeatable experiment and observation. In the case of an unpredictable and elusive phenomenon, this is rather hard to organise. But occasionally, UFO phenomena do occur in specific localities for an extended period. These are referred to as localised 'flaps'.

In the middle of 1973, a remote locality between Armidale and Grafton, around two small timber towns called Tyringham and Dundurrabin, provided me with an opportunity for repeatable observations. It started with locals observing unusual light phenomena and other strange occurrences. Details about the situation came to my notice shortly after they began. I was fortunate that the strange activity persisted for months and knowledge of it remained largely limited to locals and researchers like myself.

On about 25 June, members of the Dorrington family, at Dundurrabin, observed a large, disc-shaped UFO for about 15 minutes between 6.30 and 7.00 p.m. It hovered over Boney Mountain. The whole of the object was surrounded by a green glow. There appeared to be a rotating, brilliant red light around the middle of the object. A V-shaped green 'solid' beam seemed to oscillate up and down, more than a dozen times, before retracting into the main object. It disappeared from view, after 15 minutes, by moving straight down behind the mountain. The size estimates pointed out to me on site suggested a very large object.
