Witness: Mr. X name withheld
Number of witnesses present: 2
Sighting Duration: 20 seconds
Occupation: Security Guard
Observation: I was an security guard at Greenbank Army Training Area. This is an restricted area and I do not want my Name to be published with this article. I am one of two guards who has seen these advents on different nights. After doing a patrol at an 800mtr rifle range and leaving the site,the whole area lit up orange. I quickly reverse back so I could see down the range. I saw it at a distance of aprox 1km, it was 1cm height and which lasted about 20 seconds. Thats makes it 10 storeys high. It was an orange triangle above the treeline I look on the millary map for this area which is a restricted map. It did not allow anything that high to just disapear, a distance of 2 kms away had a deep gully that could be use to hide an object this height, the rifle range also has a very high dirt embankment at this end. Both of us also seen great explosion of light in the restrict area. The restrict area is inside the ring road that surrounds all of the different ranges. This area has been off limits since world war 2, when it was a American Army/Navy Quarters and storage area. This infomation is in the state archives. We were told never to go into this area as it has unexploded ordinates. As it is an restricted area it would be a good hidden spot for UFO activites. With the explosion of lights we saw, no sound, just rainbows of white and purple flashes, lasting some 10 seconds each.
Also not long before I left there, I had an encounter which I cannot find an answer to. I was doing a patrol about 2:30 am, I was checking one of the buildings in our patrol run. It has an rifle range next to it, it a building for reparing targets. Aprox 8 mtrs from the building is a small group of trees durning the day you can see thru them. These trees are between the building and the rifle range. We also have brumby's on site.
These horses were there grazing on the range. They were aprox 6 mtrs past the trees. As I started to climb the wooden stairs, a very LOUD roar sounded behind these trees, I was quite alarmed and looked around saw the horses with a frighten looks on there faces and running away, I did the same thing. Maybe a yowie, who knows. I left this job not long after.
My thought on this matter was, could it be aa watch dog for aliens. I live next to the GBTA, have not seen any unusal objects just unusal sounds coming from inside this area. I feel some what safe as there is a8' high fence between us. One more thing I say is that I did a google search for houses in my area, It also showed the map of GBTA. You could zoom down to the area were I think the UFO was hiding. (But the Zoom is restricted at a certain height above the ground) This is in the gully I saw a large head looking up from a hole in the ground. I guess it was some 2 mtrs round. I have told other people about this and they all have laught at me. Is here I am.
