Go Back Report # 539


October 18th 1978        10:45 PM         Hardy's Bay on the Central Coast of N.S.W. along the Maitland Bay Wreck Road       

A man (name supplied) while traveling alone towards Hardy's Bay on the Central Coast of N.S.W. along the Maitland Bay Wreck Road, had a good view over the ocean towards North Head Sydney. He suddenly noticed a “bright green glow" emanating from below an escarpment1. The glow was lighting up the underside of the sea mist from the ocean.         

As he rounded a curve in the road, his vehicles engine began misfiring and the radio and lights failed. Another vehicle approaching him also had trouble with his headlights dimming and flickering. He tried to wave the approaching driver over, but on rounding the corner realized why the driver wanted to continue.    

Suddenly his engine stopped. Then a " huge bright silver object, tubular in shape with bright green glowing ends came up the escarpment. It was so large it filled the entire windscreen ", he reported.   

He also states that the whole inside of his car lit up green. There was a " pounding " noise in his ears, like stereo speakers turned up loud and they vibrate. He also felt as if he was being " forced " down into the seat of his car. The object passed over the top of his car and gained altitude at speed.       

He was then able to restart the engine and continue his journey home. When arriving home, he was greeted by his over excited wife, bursting with something to tell him. She had also witnessed the same object from her location.

Apparently over 200 people had phoned the local radio station from as far a way as Wyong and the Entrance to report this sighting at Maitland Bay. 

That same night a professional fisherman from Hardy's Bay was 20 Km out to sea off Maitland Wreck. At about 10:05 PM he said he heard a strange noise like “water boiling and hissing ". He then noticed a bright green light traveling under the water about 200 meters in front of his trawler, but lost sight of it through the sea mist. This sighting was three days prior to the mysterious disappearance of Mr. Frederick Valentik, and his plane, over Bass Straight.
