At dawn, a farmer watched a disc-shaped UFO hover on its edge near Riverina, New South Wales . The object veered about in all directions in the sky for fifteen minutes, then shot straight up and away. Later that same day shortly after 6 p.m. in Bents Basin, New South Wales, Australia a three-meter tall (ten foot!) robot mysteriously vanished, while a 25-foot diameter disc hovered very low to the ground. The six witnesses reported having headaches as aftereffects of their encounter, and there were burn marks on one of their automobiles.
Six young people, who had driven to Bents Basin, found their car would not start; then they saw, on top of a hill 200 yards away, a disc shaped object resting on at least 3 legs. Its red luminescence pulsed in synchronism with a strong humming sound, and the observers experienced severe pulsating headaches. They got their car started, but before they had gone far their engine caught fire. Two of them set to walk out of the area for help, but came running back to report the approach of a huge human like "shadow." They hid in the grass a saw a "robot" 8-10 feet in height approach the car, gliding rather than walking. This "robot" looked glossy and had "a round, helmeted head, broad shoulders, and arms that came to pointed hands;" the legs were not seen. When it came near, this figure simply disappeared. 30 minutes later, when the terrified witnesses retreated from the area, the red glowing object was no longer there.
