On The UFO Trail
By Paul Norman

The Whitman Blimp, stationed at Moorabbin Airport, for the
past three months has been the source of a number of false UFO
reports. The blimp which has been flying around Melbourne advertising
chocolates as well as taking passengers on flights, has quiet
motors not heard over a short distance and gives the impression
of a cigar shaped UFO.
The Russian space station MIR has also been sighted especially
when the shuttle was near the station and reported as two lights
remaining the same distance apart travelling at the same speed.
Many satellites are frequently reported as UFOs. The spy satellites
are often in polar orbit travelling south to north or north to
south. They are visible up to two hours after sunset as long
as the sun is not too far below the horizon for the light rays
to shine on the satellite. Readers who are interested can see
them on clear nights.
During the past three months interest was caused by fire balls
of which much is to be learned. There were also meteorites reported.
The most outstanding one believed to be a bolide that exploded
over Hamilton, Victoria. It was seen from Mount Gambier
South Australia to Hamilton where it exploded. I interviewed
ten witnesses at Hamilton some who heard the explosion and five
observers who saw the object. Two witnesses were observing the
object when it split into two chunks. One piece is believed to
have crashed in the Grampians. VUFORS has appealed through the
Hamilton Spectator for fragments if found.
When I first joined the fight to try and end public deception
with regard to cover-ups, I did not realise that the field of
Ufology was tainted with deception throughout the world. As an
example- Last year. VUFORS received a letter marked urgent. Inside
was information about an insurance policy against alien abduction
offering up to one million pounds Stirling if abducted.
VUFORS committee members, with years of experience in dealing
with frauds and manipulators had their laugh and laid the policy
offer aside. Unfortunately there are individuals who think that
people who believe in UFOs will believe anything. This was another
attempt to defraud the gullible out of money and was exposed.
All that glitters is not gold and researchers must not become
gullible but always be vigilant against manipulators.
Even Dr. John Mack, regarded by some as the foremost
expert in the abduction field was deceived by a woman who faked
a story and after being taken seriously admitted she was only
trying him out. After this revelation. Dr. Mack is on record
as saying that he accepted her story in good faith.
Wholly accepting everybody in good faith is not good enough.
Every object that flies through the sky is not a space ship and
every dream is not an abduction. If what some people who have
reported regarding abduction is true then the "ETs"
are deceptive and manipulative. Let us hope some good ones are
out there. One good rule to follow if the "contactee"
or "abductee" is untruthful regarding ordinary things,
forget the case when discussing out of this world experiences.
This is not intended for people who report sincere beliefs.
Other incidents concerning long streaks of light in the sky
have been reported to us and we are informed that the CSIRO
is using laser beams to check on the extent of damage to the
ozone layer from the greenhouse effect. It is becoming more difficult
to separate manmade activity from the unexplained reports, including
suspected mind control experiments.
Of prime interest to researchers around the world is the forthcoming
probe to Mars. Officials have agreed to give a little bit more
attention to the face and pyramids in the Cydonia region
of the planet. That decision has been brought about because of
the criticism from researchers like Richard Hoagland,
author of the book The Monuments of Mars, Professor-Stanley
McDaniel, Dr Mark Carlotte, author of The Martian Enigmas,
suggesting possible evidence of artificial structures on Mars.
Let us hope the findings will not remain behind the paper curtain
