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.
Going forward, if you post something that is not 100% your own writing or work you must use the QUOTE BOX TAG, post NO MORE THAN 15% of the original (or three paragraphs, whichever is least), and GIVE A LINK TO THE SOURCE MATERIAL. If the work you are posting is not on the internet, from a book for example, you MUST give a credit for that Book ( the title), its Author and Publisher.
"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."
"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.
Later it was revealed that the analyst was a NASA employee, and that his house and property were under government protection."
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.
Thanks MMN its appreciated
I find the report made by Major Colman Vonkeviczky project director of ICUFON an amazing analysis
”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/]
”This article, and movie strip, can be found in some magazines today discussing UFOs.”
”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".
”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.
”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.)”
What do you think of Cathie as an investigator, both in the specific instance of the Alberton case & more broadly?
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
