I think before too many people make the usual assumptions, a perusal of the links provided by the OP should be in order first.
This subject has been well discussed and dissected by many "experts and Authorities", with the general feeling that it is "An Anomaly".........
As stated, this person has recently died, almost 90yo, so it wasnt a childish prank of 20 years ago.
Apparently he was an ex WW2 pilot, tho he must have been young and toward the end of the event.
Apparently he was thoroughly sick and tired of people accusing him of a prank etc, that toward the later years, he never mentioned it......Doesnt
sound like a prankster to me.
Apparently these photos are from a few scratched an worn photos that someone else (not the photographer) had??? Im a little confused about that one,
but its in the link stories.
Apparently, he lent his original negatives to his now ex son in law, who was in the military at the time (????), and they were returned all scratched
and virtually unusable.........so the story goes.
As I said, I live in the same city, and Ive heard nothing of this till an ATS thread....of course no internet in the old days, and I didnt follow the
Why no other wittnesses??,,....Well Maslins is a sleepy little beach suburb, full of oldies and youngies, that I would think would have been in bed at
that time, or if it was a work day, on their merry way North to the city about 30 minutes away. Also the main road is a couple of miles from the beach
cliffs,so actually driving on the main road, you cannot see the beach at all, nor can you see the cliffs...tho there are a few sand quarrys around.
Anyone driving at 6.00am on that morning on the main road, probably wouldnt have seen anything, of course one of the reasons being that the Sun would
be blasting in their face from the east...so glare/reflections etc...we drive RHD here, same as the UK, opposite side to the US.
I forgot what season this was, but in our summer daylight saving, the sun rises at around 5.45-55am.
He did describe the object as taking off straight up and (into space) within 3 seconds or so.
As ex military/supposed pilot, he would have a natural interest in seeing an object like this...so that makes sense.
Could be a Probe....they dont all have to have occupants....we send probes, and even CRASH into other Worlds, without invitation...Perhaps it is a
remote fuel tanker drone to gather H2O for the mother ship in orbit, to feed the fission engines and life support systems.
Perhaps Earth is just a stop over/rest stop on the Galactic Magnetic highway????
This is NOT inconceivable..
Just because they are Non Earthians, doesnt mean they have to land here and abduct people, or meet the president etc....they may not even consider us,
as they havent disturbed us or contravened the "Prime Directive".,
They may/possibly have different concepts of Ownership....which is a modern Human greed concept.....ancient man tribes often didnt know the meaning of
ownership....what was there, was for everyone.
Do they need our permission to scoop some water out of the sea for fuel??? Of course not.
Do we ask the fishies if we can take them away from their families and homes, suffocate them, then eat them??
