Go Back Report # 1252


July 8th 1947 Sydney NSW     
"Though last night was cloudy over Sydney, people were reporting early this morning that they had seen ‘flying saucers’ similar to those which have been reported all over the United States. Some were said to be shooting south at terrific speed, others curving gently about the sky, and at least one was claimed to have fallen into the harbour."
