Scales Bay/Streaky Bay, South Australia
AUFORN Sighting Form Report
Name: Noel aged 77
Other witness: Noel's wife - Melva
Suburb: 12 miles out of Streaky Bay on the
Calca Road (later at Scales Bay)
Time: Midnight Saturday
Date: 1956 or 1957
Sighting: Smallish red light
On this occasion, Noel and his wife were driving home to Scales Bay from Streaky Bay after a night out at the movies. Approx 12 miles out of Streaky Bay, Noel noticed what appeared to be a red tail light of a car in front of him. He thought this was odd because the road was fairly straight, there wasn't a side entry road and the light appeared out of "nowhere".
He decided to speed up to get a better look but as soon as he did this the light sped up at the same rate, so Noel eased back on the accelerator. When he slowed down the light slowed down, when he sped up the light sped up. It was as if the light was mimicking his movements.
At the Calca store, he turned on to a road leading to his homestead at Scales Bay. At this time no one else lived on this road except for Noel and Melva, but the light was still ahead of them, which he thought was very unusual at midnight in the middle of nowhere on a road where he was the only resident.
About ½ a mile along the Scales Bay road the red light took off at great speed out to sea.
I asked Noel why he had waited so long to report this sighting and he explained that he had heard Dominic MacNamara (AUFORN, AURA Adelaide) on ABC radio last weekend and this prompted him to call.
