Another UFO case from Australia with physical traces and a possible related death.
At about 8 pm, on April 4th, 1966, Ron Sullivan, a steel construction businessman from Maryborough, was travelling on a straight sealed section of
the Dunolly-St.Arnaud road, near Bourkes Flat, in central country Victoria. Ahead in a paddock off to his right, Sullivan observed an unusual light.
He first took it to be a tractor, engaged in night ploughing, but as he drew closer, Sullivan began to see a most unusual light display, located at
ground level. The following things happened quickly as he drew closer to the scene, and then passed it. Sullivan was paying attention to both the
light display in the paddock on his right and the road when he observed the following sequence of light display in the strange phenomenon in the
Here are a couple of sketches drawn up by Ron Sullivan
(Apologies for the size, it's all I could find so far)
Initially, as he approached Sullivan saw a white phosphorous type of light on the ground that appeared to be about 15 feet in diameter. "It
opened up and there was another white oval on top of it, about 30 feet (in height, coming down making the shape of a cone (with a) 15 feet bottom
diameter and 20 feet to diameter - and in that cone were tubes of coloured lights - all the lights as you see as you look through the spectrum ("all
the colours of the rainbow") ... red, blue, indigo and purple ... travelling up and down ... or they seem to be... from the small oval to the bigger
oval at the top. They were going up and down in shafts. Then gradually the top seemed to come to meet the bottom ... They seemed to close in ...
making a transition of one light oval -- similar to first view -- everything then just disappeared." The last thing Sullivan saw of the light display
was "just a spot on the ground -- a light spot, become smaller and smaller, to nothing." Meanwhile, as he was driving, he observed that his car
headlight beams suddenly appeared to be pointing in a direction off to the right in the direction of the strange light display and also seemed to be,
bending back on an axis with the object in the paddock. As he got closer, the angle of bending of his car's headlight beams became more acute. He
thought his car must have been heading off the road to the right, and immediately compensated by turning it to the left. He found he was now heading
directly towards a tree on the left hand side of the road. Sullivan turned the car to the right to regain the direction of travel along the straight
section of road, thoroughly confused and leaving behind the display in the paddock.
Quite an unusual experience, this is the first I've heard of head lights bending towards a UFO before, I'm not too what to make of it really.
What's got my interest peaked though, is that another driver on the same stretch of road, Gary Taylor, died two days later. Furthermore he hit the
same tree that Sullivan swerved to miss.
Could he have experienced the same phenomena as Ron?
Unfortunately that's one question we won't get an answer to.
The other thing of interest is the physical trace found after the event, a small depression about 70 yards directly across from the above mentioned
It was a little over 3 feet in diameter and only a few inches in depth. The depression was cleanly scooped out of the sandy soil with no apparent
debris around it. There were no human or animal tracks around the area.
Ron Examining the depression:
If anyone else has any more to add to this case, as there isn't a whole lot of information out there, it would be greatly appreciated!
