Westall UFO Incident: A Close Encounter of the Australian Kind | 154

Westall UFO Incident: A Close Encounter of the Australian Kind | 154

Elementary school is such a fun experience. How could you not love the art projects, lunchtime with your friends, recess, UFO sightings…. Well, that last one is specific to a small suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia (also colloquially known as Westall). The Westall UFO Incident took place on April 6th, 1966, when over 200 students and faculty in the area reportedly observed multiple UFOs defying physics and toying with other, more terrestrial aircraft. This was followed by the appearance of a mysterious military type unit with designs on covering the whole thing up. What really happened in Westall? Who were the mysterious men telling locals to keep their mouths shut? Do windsocks react with swamp-gas? We head back to the Land Down Under this week and investigate. Plus, British Announcer Guy is back and has a bone to pick with Conspiracy Bot (this might not end well), the fellas try to calm things down with a negotiation of sorts (also not likely to end well), and even Kyle gets involved (definitely will not end well). All of that and more on the podcast that knows for a fact there wasn’t a UFO seen over Australia…because Australia isn’t real – Hysteria 51.
