Group Description

This group is dedicated to those people who were involved in, or have an interest in, the April 6, 1966 flying saucer incident at Westall High School, in the Melbourne suburb of Clayton South, in Victoria, Australia.

On April 6, 1966, many students and some staff of Westall High School (now called Westall Secondary College), in Rosebank Avenue, Clayton South, witnessed a flying saucer fly over their school and then descend into a paddock near the school. The paddock was adjacent to a grove of pine trees, in an area known as The Grange (now a nature reserve). Soon after, around five light aircraft appeared, giving chase to the UFO as it rapidly ascended and moved off, never to be seen again. The provenance of the light aircraft was also never resolved.

Shortly afterwards, one to three circular patch(es) of grass were seen by many witnesses in the paddock. Later, uniformed men, thought to have been police and military personnel (airforce, according to some accounts), were seen attending the scene. After taking various measurements, some have reported that the paddock was then burnt or turned over by these uniformed men. Some witnesses reported being spoken to, or later visited by, these personnel. Some say that both students and staff were told not to discuss the incident, while some students reported being disciplined for speaking out. It has been estimated that about 200 people witnessed these events on that autumn day in Melbourne's (then) south-eastern fringe, including people at the adjacent Westall State School.

Many of the people involved in this incident are still alive, and some still live in the area. This group is dedicated to them as a place for them to share their experiences and to tell their stories. So, whatever role you played in this intriguing incident in Melbourne's history, or whatever interest you may have, please feel free to come forward and have your say. It was all a long time ago now - it is time for the truth to see the light of day!
