This is a case that interests me and hopefully interests the ATS team. Some other members have touched on this story in other threads but there is no actual thread on it as far as I can find.

The conspiracy surrounding this film footage/ sighting is amazing, right down to the film footage being damaged by a NASA analyst, court action to release the findings,

I was hoping the ATS team could help out with any other information/ links, analyses of the pictures taken from the film footage. I have tried for weeks but I keep getting either the same story or a 404 error message from other sites that no longer exsist



THE EVENTS:
On an evening in May or June 1967, Mr. and Mrs. Mathews has just returned to their home in Alberton, South Australia, and were preparing themselves to get to bed early, after watching some television for a while. At one time they went outdoors, during a commercial break on television, to get some fresh air.


www.ufologie.net...


Apparently, the analysis of these ten frames before it was lost was done using microscopic enlargement and it revealed "a circular craft free from protrusions." The interpretation was that the craft was motionless, facing the camera with an illuminated compartment window emanating a bluish light, and a series of dark portholes running around the entire illuminated circumference.


Here is another link that tells the story but with more information, I don't want to copy and paste it here because its from a book available for all to read ( not sure about copyright) worthy of a look

Book, here.


Hope you all enjoy, it is a fascinating encounter and if someone can fix the long links it would be appreciated, sorry new to this

Auswally.....

I'm glad you started this thread about this interesting case!


If give me a few minutes, I'll embed some of the still-frames for you.

ATS Team:

Here is a series of still-frames presented as part of the analysis:




"Apparently, the analysis of these ten frames before it was lost was done using microscopic enlargement and it revealed "a circular craft free from protrusions." The interpretation was that the craft was motionless, facing the camera with an illuminated compartment window emanating a bluish light, and a series of dark portholes running around the entire illuminated circumference."


Here is a magnified view of some of the damage sustained to the film during the analysis:



The discussion of the "damaged film" is relevant:


"A series of claims and denials regarding the film whereabouts caused months of delay. A court case ensued in October 1969 and it was revealed that the film had been damaged accidentally during processing, and the film strip was eventually returned in totally worthless condition, having sustained damage along its entire length.


This info is intriguing:


Later it was revealed that the analyst was a NASA employee, and that his house and property were under government protection."

Good stuff and a great thread. Maybe, then again maybe not... The next time someone asks the immortal question... "How come there's never any decent photo's footage of UFO's"? People can reply ,

"Cos every time we seem to find any and a government agency goes anywhere near it, the either lose it... asre the Scottish UFO and Harrier Jump jet photo/ Woomera cancelled Blue Streak test footage, or they screw the processing up... ala Rendlesham and this incident.

What happened in this instance isn't the only case i remember from the 50s and 70s. I'm still rooting through a few older books to dig out several more cases where people submitted, what they thought were perfectly good pictures to be told... "oh we lost the film".."oh there was a fault processing it" by the Government agency they handed it over to.

You might find some interesting material in this thread by the Great Karl 12.....

The Missing UFO Evidence Thread

If you material of interest, it might even be worth starting separate threads for interesting lost cases of UFO photos & videos.

Auswally.....

Here is a brief commentary stating the Alberton UFO is definitive proof that UFO’s are powered by ”Perpetual Motion Ionic Impulse Force”


”The re-cycling of the mercury vapors to keep the craft in a hover mode is about 3 cycles per second, and therefore is very difficult for the human eye to follow this process. The ABSOLUTE PROOF of all of the above is found a movie strip of a UFO hovering in our atmosphere while utilizing the Ion Impulse Force System.

This movie strip was shot with a camera at a speed of 18 frames per second that showed this process perfectly. This process of re-cycling the vapors are easily seen when the frames are analyzed in sequence, and lift can be measured on the craft from this clip, as the ions are deflected downward. Should anyone care to analyze this movie strip for himself, it is called "The Alberton Spacecraft", and was shot over Alberton, South Australia, in June of 1967, by Mr. James E. Mathews (a construction manager). From his account, he was testing his camera, and shot a small light in the sky. He thought nothing about it, and it was actually a year later that he developed the film when he noticed what it really was.”[i/]


The following comment notes an article, but it is not clear if it is the same article that appears to the only article, being the one which we can see repeated everywhere.


”This article, and movie strip, can be found in some magazines today discussing UFOs.”

Auswally.....

This site refers to the Alberton UFO in the context of ”UFO Magnocraft Propulsors”.

Here is the reference to the film:


”A single frame from a colour movie film of a UFO taken at night by Ellis E. Matthews above Alberton, South Australia, in 1967 - see the book by Bruce Cathie & P.N. Temm, "Harmonic 695" (Wellington, N.Z., 1971, ISBN 0 589 01054 9) page 134. It presents a stationary vehicle type K5 hovering in darkness in the "throbbing mode of operation".


Here is the description of the ”UFO Magnocraft Propulsors”:


”The film captured only a glow of air, ionized by the magnetic field from the vehicle's propulsors. In turn the main body of the UFO remained invisible in darkness. In the above photograph the colours of the glowing air provide perfect confirmation for the statements of the "Theory of the Magnocraft". The air at the single outlet from the main propulsor, whose axis is slanted from the centre of vehicle, glows a yellow-orange colour, whereas the ring of outlets from the side propulsors induces a blue-green glow. This means that the UFO's topside was oriented towards the photographer, so in the main propulsor a north (N) magnetic pole prevails, whereas in the side propulsors their south (S) poles are displayed - see also "Fig. #C3b" which describes colours of the air glow at outlets from Magnocrafts' propulsors.

Here is an interesting reference to the ”reversal” of the ”UFO Magnocraft Propulsors” required in the northern hemisphere as opposed to the southern hemisphere.


”Compare the colours from this frame of movie taken in the southern hemisphere of the Earth, with the colours in the photograph from part (a) of this illustration that was taken in the northern hemisphere of the Earth. (Notice that in the different hemispheres the polarity of the UFOs' magnetic propulsors must be reversed.)”

I read Cathie's "Harmonics" books years ago.

What do you think of Cathie's material?

What do you think of Cathie as an investigator, both in the specific instance of the Alberton case & more broadly?

Kind regards

Just an attempt at animation/stabilization of the available frames. Hard to tell exactly what order they go in, though. Also, it didn't seem right side up, so I flipped it over. Anyway...

Mate I keep an open mind always. I read about Cathie and the earth grid in Nexus years ago. think early 90's; I honestly have to say, well i keep an open mind, have to sit on the fence, its amazing thou how many ancient and important places around the world are on grid points,

You need to start another thread on that thou


Mr Mathews integrity has never been questioned and he has never made any attempt for commercial gain from his film or has sort no publicity what so ever.

From what I have read ( links above) they claim to have and Quote ( complete with a being who might be its pilot ), now I am a simple man but I see no pilot in those pics, I see strange lights but a pilot. Can anyone help out here, am i missing something

I think the photo you animated is actually of the porthole with the search light being manipulated by the "alien" who is dimly lit in the back round. And yes you do have it upside down.

If you follow the OP's link:

www.ufologie.net...

You will find what looks to be a photocopy of a contact sheet containing one large image of the craft and several close-ups of the port hole (the ones you animated). The port hole is at the bottom of the craft.

The image of the craft is above several of the port hole. The craft looks like two cereal bowls, face to face. There is a lighter coloured band where the rims of the bowls would be.

Or am I wrong about this. Here's the photo.

I think the suggestion is the large white circle is the “port hole” & the shadow in that "port hole" is the “alien”.

I have circled the head of the “alien”.
