Go Back Report # 509



June 1977 Oberon NSW

Three men illegally fishing in a boat, one night, were 3.2 km up river from the Oberon Dam near a peninsula called Crows Peak. A dark shape was initially seen on the shore. 5 minutes later, something started to come around the bend of the river. It turned out to be an indefinable shape some 3.6-4.6 m wide, with a blue glow, 3-4.6 m above the water surface. The phenomenon was silent. It crossed onto the peninsula and went out of sight. Next day all the grass and low hanging branches across the peninsular area where the phenomenon had passed appeared to have been "burnt" or browned off. Even weed under the water to a depth of 15-20 cm was also browned off.
