Mick Fleetwood lives on Maui.

On topic, I think he's an alien.

Back to UFOs...


If you insist, mate...

So here's The Stranglers' 1979 composition, 'Meninblack'... who "are here to destroy... we are here to employ..."





Still freaky s# after all this time.

Some great research there mate and (unless it's a mistake) looks like there may have also been another school case from Newcastle in the same month.

Although school UFO sightings have been reported quite a bit over the years (link) I did find this one sourced by Keith Basterfield pretty interesting as it was said to have happened in 1909.



Date: July 23, 1909

Location: Kelso, New Zealand

Time: 13:00

Summary: On July 23, a small group of schoolchildren and some residents reported that an airship came down and bobbed around in the sky over the school for a few minutes.

Cheers, Karl.


1977 certainly seemed an unusually busy UFO year for schoolkids Watching The Skies. And yet another cigar-shaped object in the Newcastle case, which was sighted the same week as Broad Haven.

(And I'm impressed by your current work digging up those older cases such as the 1909 'airship'-shaped school sighting in NZ, a description we can more or less chalk up as 'cigar-shaped', too.)

With that many cigars gliding above schools in the 70s, no wonder so many kids took up smoking.
