Australian "UFO communities" on Facebook

Hi all,

Each month, when compiling the monthly Australian national level sightings listings, I take a look at a number of Facebook (FB) pages on which appear details of either personal or third party observations.

This month, the number of such individual Australian "UFO communities" Facebook pages ( I am not including the FB pages of specific individuals who post about UFOs) hit at least 32 of which I am aware. Naturally, there may be other closed, or hidden sites. Having spent sometime taking a look at each site, I thought I'd share with blog readers, what I found. The list is not meant to be a complete listing of such sites.


A. FB pages associated with groups:

Some FB pages belong to well known Australian UFO groups. I will list their name; a well known individual associated with that group; the descriptor they place on the site, e.g. closed group etc; and the link.

  1. How bloody ridiculous! All these separate groups and individuals all working towards the one outcome. Crazy!!

  2. In 1979 near Moorine Rock in Western Australia, my wife (now ex) and I had a frightening experience that started with an observation of a "fireball" in the sky which descended into a nearby paddock, we observed that although it looked for all the world like fire it didn't set light to anything . This happened at approximately 2 to 2.30 am.
    We found no way of gaining access to where we could clearly see the object, and my wife became very agitated and insisted we leave. The frightening part was that we were tracked by a red light until well past Merredin when it stopped tracking and appeared as a red glow that totally filled the rear window, then disappeared.
    Shortly after thatI found I was too tired to drive further and pulled of the road where we both fell asleep. When we arrived at our destination near Perth,our teenage daughter greeted us with concern that it had taken us so long to drive from Kalgoorlie to Perth, as we were 2 hours overdue.I told her we had a sleep, but she insisted we had experienced 'lost time' a term I was not at that time familiar with.
    I have never before reported this to any body and am only doing so now because it keeps returning to my mind, just as clearly as though it happened yesterday and I thought puting it into words and sharing it might bring me some sort of closure.

  5. Last night, 20/08/15. time approx 6:45pm I noticed a red/orange light moving across the sky, from north to south, along the beach line in the Fingal Bay area, the light did not have the classic aircraft white strobe lights or fixed wing navigation lights, green would have been the light I would have seen from my position, nor was there any sound. The light had a shimmering effect, and "blinked out" once before re appearing, then "blinked out" not coming back on. From my position the light would have been about 15 degrees above the horizon in clear conditions. the moon was above me and over to my right rear side at the time. As a guess the distance would have been 3-5 kms away from my position. I was alone at the time.

  6. Rob... I was at Fingal Bay two weeks ago. On one night, about 7pm my family and I saw, on two separate occasions four orange lights. Three were in a triangular position and one at two o'clock. They lasted a minute or so. Very interesting/mysterious. So, I can relate to your sighting. Lorne, NSW.
