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.
