In my up coming Science and the UFO controversy column for the Australian UFO magazine I've written a piece called "The Cosmic Tornados of OZ". Here is part of it as related to the fascinating 1963 experience of farmer Charles Brew near Willow Grove in Victoria.
The "Close Encounter" series will cover the story with their usual flare. It will be dramatic and it will get some sense of the original. Shane Ryan and I will be giving commentary on the show. Back in about 1980 I visited the Willow Grove property. Sadly Charles Brew had passed away by then. His family showed me the location. It wasn't quite like this. The UFO may have been that close, but there was a steep immediate drop off of the land with hills in the near background and the weather - clouds and rain much more closed in. Still, its only an attempt at dramatic recreation.
