In January 1959, after 5:00 p.m., Peter, who was a former pilot, his wife, and daughter were walking along the beach at Port Gawler, South Australia, looking towards the sea when a silhouetted dome came up out of the water. They at first thought it must have been a submarine ‘nosing around’ as it was then the Cold War. It looked dark against the setting sun. It started to lift out of the water and was ‘absolutely spherical.’ Then there was a white propulsion of sorts, a curtain of white underneath it. There was only the sound of the ocean. The object shone like glass. When it moved towards them, there was nowhere to go. They were rooted to the spot. It felt like it had stopped and was observing them. It looked silver, like polished aluminium. It rose out of the sea at a considerable height. Then another came in from the south and they stopped next to each other. The second one moved south and the other accelerated at approx. 3000 miles per hour, at least.
