Dear Westall friends,
The very successful British UFO magazine, UFO Matrix, has made the 1966 Westall Incident their feature (and cover) story for Issue 6, which is out now.
Issue 6 will feature part one of the Westall article, with part two to be published in Issue 7. Each article will be about seven pages long, and will include photos taken by me and by Carmel McAloon, the producer of Westall '66: A Suburban UFO Mystery, and other stills from that documentary.
Issue 6 came out in Britain on May 31. It will be available in Australia, and other countries, on June 30.
If you click on the link below it will take you to a sample abridged version of the current issue. (Please note that the cover art is not intended to represent the Westall incident, but is an artistic representation of UFOs more generally!)
The magazine is available through a range of newsagents in Australia - feel free to contact me if you want details of the newsagent closest to you so that you can go and purchase a copy when it is available. I believe most newsagents are able to order it if they don't currently stock it. The magazine is also available at Barnes & Noble and Borders bookstores in some countries (though probably not at Borders in Australia as they are about to close down — although previous issues may still be available for purchase there).
Subscriptions and single copies can also be purchased directly from the magazine — see their web site for details.
Publishing these articles on Westall in UFO Matrix will make the story better known to a wider — and international — audience. Hopefully it will encourage a larger number of people to look again (or the first time) at this incident, and perhaps it will help us all find a resolution to this ongoing 45 year-old Melbourne mystery.
With best wishes, from Canberra,
Shane L.J. Ryan
