It's a digital world - Australian periodicals


I have written a few posts in recent times, about the need to digitise old Australian UAP periodicals; and the ability of blog readers to upload digital copies of old TUFOIC and UFOIC Newsletters. I am currently working on on making more Australian UAP periodicals available, stay tuned to this blog.

Long term blog readers, will also recall that I am a great believer in going back to original source material when reviewing cases. Old periodicals are an excellent source of such original material.

I have received a number of requests from both Australian and overseas researchers, to provide a list of the available digital Australian periodicals. Here it is.

If any blog readers have digital issues which are not listed, I would appreciate a scanned PDF copy being sent to me at keithbasterfield@yahoo.com.au. If you have hard copies of non listed issues, then please consider spending a little of your time digitising them, for the benefit of all of us.

  1. Sometime in the late or even mid 70's,There were multiple sightings of what can easily be called a fleet. This was on the front pages of the then Sun and the Mirror newspapers. I saw them along with my entire neighbourhood. We weren't alone it turned out. Hundreds reported the sightings. Cremorne ,Bondi, Parramatta, Inner West etc etc. I have tried to contact the archives of news stories. The thing is that those 2 papers also had pages more on the story. Even photos. I am hoping you may have more luck in getting the story. Please try. We watched what i have described to others , something like a ballet in the evening sky. No, they didn't just fly over. We watched in utter awe as some would fly one way , come back others would stay motionless , then just disappear, then come back , move up, down, sideways. It was truly spectacular.

  2. Hi princepesa, Thank you for your comment. I have sent a query off to two people who are members of UFO Research (NSW) to see if they can track the story down. If they find anything, I will post it here.
