PART 2 of 6
Another fairly typical (but silent) fireball event
occurred in October 1994 at the iron ore mining
town of Tom Price in the Pilbara region of W.A.
In mid October 1994 a family were having a patio
barbecue at about 8.30pm at night. They saw a very
large red-orange colored ball of fire moving at
very low altitude directly towards them at a steady
slow light aircraft speed (<100mph ?)and 300
meters altitude. It was bigger than the moon in
They rang the local police alerting them to a
possible aircraft on fire. The two police raced
outside to watch. By now many of the towns folk
(population some four thousand) were outside
watching the fireball. From front on it appeared to
be a fiery orange-yellow-white color - possibly
rectangular or spherical in cross section
(depending on observer), from the side it appeared
to be a spherical yellow-white light - pulsing up
and down in light intensity (as captured on
Our original barbecue observers, being some 200
meters directly below it by now, reported that it
was an intense spherical ball of orange-red fire
with the fire swirling in a spiral pattern and the
flames disappearing internally upwards into a
central black "hole" or void within the spherical
mass of flames.
The fireball had no tail and made no noise at all -
there was no ground seismic wave as experienced in
many other recent Australian fireball events. It
was described as a sort of "implosion ball of
flames" with all the fire or flames originating in
local space outside the fiery sphere-like form, the
flames being sucked into the center where they
disappeared - "like a moving plasma ball in a local
space-time warp around a central black hole" -
"Never ever seen anything like it before -
therefore difficult to describe accurately". Really
aware people these outback mining families - a
scientist could not have done better !!!
The fireball took about 5 minutes to cover the
distance from a line of hills west of Tom Price to
a line of hills to their east. At this point it
flashed a bright blue-white color that lit up the
area and it then took off at very high speed and
disappeared almost instantly moving very fast to
the east. Other observers simply believed that it
just disappeared with the intense blue-white light
flash/explosion - no explosive noise heard - just a
very bright light energy emission flash.
The observers turned around to look back to the
Immediately a second fireball appeared in the west
following the path of the first. This flew slightly
lower but at the same slow light aircraft speed
(i.e. about 100 mph) and similarly at constant low
altitude. Again it flew directly over the barbecue
observers and was identical in all respects to the
first. It disappeared similarly in a massive
blue-white flash of light energy moving at very
high velocity to the east.
This was followed by a third fireball following the
exact same low level (nearly in the tree tops),
exact same size, exact same slow flight speed,
exact same course, same flash of light followed by
it's disappearance at high speed to the east.
The time between each separate fireball "pulse"
appearing was almost identical and after one
disappeared to the east as you swung around to look
west another arrived - like clockwork.
There remains a difference of opinion between
observers as to exactly how many fireballs were
seen in the sequence that night. All observers
agree that two were seen, but several claim that
three were actually seen - but that strange
time/space/mind distortion effects were in
operation (emanating from the fireballs) such that
confusion reigned immediately during and after the
sightings which led to disagreement and argument
over the number of discrete fireball events.
These entire events -or parts thereof - were seen
by many of the inhabitants of Tom Price i.e.
probably over a thousand people. Many attempted to
take photos but all film rolls returned from Perth
showed good family snaps but only white blanks of
the fireballs. The films were developed by friends
and were not tampered with, suggesting that X-ray
or similar e/m radiation from the fireball fogged
the film by concentration through the camera lens
One video camera tape was taken but later
accidental over-recording led to only two minutes
of this incident remaining - taped as a pulsing
light or fireball, as seen from well south of the
fireball track - this has since been appropriated
by a NSW UFO researcher and has never since seen
the light of day.
All residents were shocked by what they observed,
eventually believing that someone deliberately
wanted them to see these fireballs as some sort of
test over an isolated outback town. They confirm
that there appeared to be no solid mass object when
seen close up, but from a distance many thought
they were seeing an aircraft on fire - the second
and third fireballs disabused them of this idea. No
one could align their sighting with anything within
their experiential memory. Some thought that "it
was like the end of the world".
The two police were taken the next day to a point
half way to the Paraburdoo town site (Residents
here also saw the fireballs to their north that
night) - located some 50km south of Tom Price. The
police were briefed by officials on what had
occurred and thereafter refused to discuss the
Being a small town with few inhabitants and pretty
lonely if the other residents cold shoulder you one
policeman later admitted that he would like to say
what it was all about but had been ordered to keep
his mouth shut and it was more than his job and
life were worth to say more.
The residents of Tom Price discussed these events
for days, but attempts to go public on Perth TV
were met with last minute cancellation amid
ridicule and loony epithets - after Channel 7
actually paid airfares for two resident
eye-witnesses to fly to Perth.
Many residents had noticed that the fireballs had
flown from the direction of the Exmouth Peninsular
US "Radio Communications" base. Many suspect that
there is a secret underground part to this base
which contains large peculiar aerial systems at
It was later found out that the Dampier power
station (150km north of Tom Price) went off line at
the time of the Tom Price fireballs due to a huge
overvoltage pulse on the transmission lines.
Residents of this district have commonly seen, or
even been followed by bright white lights whilst
traversing roads at night near the coast and the
Exmouth base area. These lights move at low or high
speed, at low or high altitude, and commonly alter
Very bright white glows have been observed at night
emanating from uninhabited bush land just to the
east of Tom Price. Fireballs have been reported on
several occasions in the period 1973 to 1994 as
flying from Exmouth towards the east and the Great
In this Tom Price fireball(s) incident we appear to
have a possible direct link to a US base. Thus it
is feasible that high powered E/M weapon systems
are being tested by the USA on Australian soil - or
possibly that foreign E/M systems, or off planet
alien ufo, interest in the Exmouth USA base is
being demonstrated by these sightings.
Regular passage of three such slow speed fireballs,
ultimately increasing rapidly to very high speed
fireballs, occurring exactly at equal timed
intervals, along the same very low altitude
trajectory and course, cannot involve any normal
meteor or bolide train event. These fireball events
do not appear to represent any known natural
phenomenon, and certainly appear to fit either the
alien "UFO", secret military space plane test, or
E/M weapons testing scenarios.
Eyewitness information about the insides of the
Exmouth Peninsular US "VLF Submarine Communication"
base proves to be extremely interesting.
The main Tx site consists of one central very high
aerial called "Tower Zero" placed upon a low hill
top and surrounded by 11 eqi-spaced smaller towers
(each about 1000 ft. high), each tower is connected
by aerial wire forming a series of three concentric
circular loops (in excess of 3km diameter).
Tower zero is encased in wood/asbestos sheeting to
form a very high enclosed oblong box, it has a two
man elevator running up the inside of the tower -
the top inner aerial shape is surrounded by a
larger enclosed box.
The aerial array utilized enormous quantities of
copper tube and wire "ground counterpoise" arrays
buried in the ground under the entire complex.
Access into the hill side tunnel opening takes one
into a large (at least three story) underground
section at the base of Tower Zero. Here is
something like the innards of a giant "transistor
radio" with a huge heavy duty copper wire coil some
50 feet high and 15 feet in diameter - all
supported on hard wood (Jarrah) frames fixed with
wooden (Jarrah) nuts and bolts !!! Sections are
lined with stainless steel sheeting. There may be
further and deeper sections under the copper coil
which were not seen by this witness.
There is a large power station (possibly running on
gas from bore holes into a nearby large natural gas
Although officially recently handed over by the US
Navy to Australian Navy control the base still has
many US "consultants" who live in the nearby town
of Exmouth. The Jarrah fittings and copper coil in
Tower Zero were installed in 1968, after the main
building contractor teams had left the
Supposedly this Exmouth Tx site is transmitting vlf
or elf E/M radio messages to submarines. However
this eyewitness description of the underground
wooden frame and giant coil is a dead give away. It
perfectly describes major elements of Tesla's Wardenclyffe, Long Island, and the earlier Colorado
Springs research versions, Magnifying Energy
Transmitters. The wooden construction is required
to handle very high voltages and very high
frequencies (possibly as high as microwave band
frequencies) by containing the induced coil
electrostatic wave from discharge to ground - it is
NOT needed to handle very low frequencies (vlf), or
extremely low frequencies (elf).
Tesla claimed in 1908 that he could hit any
antipodean planetary city with an enormous E/M
energy pulse delivered in micro seconds that would
"create an explosion equivalent to more than the
power of the extant World navy's combined
Dreadnought Battleship broadsides" (i.e. a huge
force similar to that of a nuclear explosion) from
just such a device.
Therefore it would appear that the US Exmouth Tx
site contains a "Tesla" or "scalar" E/M weapon
system - which has been active since about 1969
....... i.e. in time to conduct the 1970 and
younger tests that we see evidence of due east of
there in the Great Sandy Desert as many grid rows
of 10km spaced earthquakes - looking like a chess
board - each of 3 to 5 Richter power.
In 1965 this section of the Great Sandy Desert area
was (uniquely for Australia) covered by high
altitude U2 aerial photography - paid for by the US
government - why ???
In 1966 the French Oil company Aquitaine Oil (now
called ELF ! Aquitaine) took out a large oil
exploration permit in this most isolated and
difficult to access area of Australia. Canberra
even paid half the exploration costs to help
explore the hinterland - no other company known to
me got this type of deal - especially to explore an
area of poor conceptual potential in a poor
geological environment when many easier access and
far better geological environments with excellent
conceptual potential existed elsewhere in Australia
and were open for acquisition and exploration.
Aquitaine commenced exploration in 1967 and carried
out aeromagnetic, ground gravity, seismic
traverses, and ground VLF/ELF E/M studies (These
E/M techniques being quite rare and odd exploration
techniques for oil).
In 1968/9 Australian Army MP's with 4wd. jeeps were
airlifted in to the Great Sandy Desert to round up
a couple of hundred nomadic Aboriginal tribes
people and ship them out to Broome. This region was
declared "OFF LIMITS TO THE PUBLIC" and all access
tracks into the desert were guarded by military
Police. The published reason was the danger from a
series of test launches from Woomera in South
Australia over the Great Sandy Desert and Broome of
the British Blue Streak missiles, and of the
European four stage space rocket satellite
launching system - they even got this one into
orbit eventually in early 1970 and 1971. Thereafter
the British missile programme and the European
space effort were rather mysteriously and suddenly
In 1970 Aquitaine did no field work. In late March
1970 a series of concentrated 3.0-5.0 Richter
earthquakes commenced in the eastern Great Sandy
Desert (NB. none ever known previously since W.A.
seismometers were installed in 1900 - also NO
aboriginal racial memory of quakes in this region).
These quakes stopped in early October 1970 only to
recommence the following year again. Isolated
quakes have continued every year since 1970. The
late March to early October period each year is the
only viable field period in this region - due to
the extreme heat of +50 degrees Centigrade in the
months of November - February.
In 1972/3 Aquitaine drilled two deep stratigraphic
oil wells (both dry) and walked away from the
permit. Their annual exploration work reports
(1966-1973) should be on "open-file" at the Perth
WA Mines Dept. library - however they are listed as
confidential. No copies exist in Perth and they are
held under lock and key in Canberra at the AGSO (ex BMR) offices - this is unique in all my
In 1973 the BMR published a report about the
strange explosion of new earthquakes in the eastern
Great Sandy Desert - this contained incorrect quake
epicenter maps - apparently biased to NOT show the
strange regular positioning of these quakes along a
10km x 10km spaced grid over some 80km x 70 km area
- with a central 2km spaced series of quakes along
two lines forming an apparently central "aiming
The 1996 AGSO Mundaring Observatory epicenter data
demonstrates this regular quake epicenter pattern
very well. The accuracy of epicenter determination
is thought to be +/-10 km. Other Australian areas
of dense quake distribution show chaotic elliptical
area spreads - clustered statistically around
central points - not regular grid lines of quakes
marching through the desert. These quakes are not
due to seismic explosives - unless they used
several kilotons at each shot hole !!!
The Great Sandy Desert earthquakes are distributed
almost exactly due east of the Exmouth vlf Tx site,
and intriguingly are also located upon a magnetic
north pole great circle route from Exmouth's sister
transmitter complex located at Cutler, Maine, on
the north eastern seaboard of the USA near the
Thus if the several sightings concerning fireballs
emanating from Exmouth (reported during the period
1973 to 1994) to the east towards the Great Sandy
Desert are taken into account it would appear that
this area of Australia has been utilized for the
testing and eventual deployment of a diabolical E/M
weapons system of prodigious power.
Slugs of E/M energy could have been fired from
Exmouth and steered or explosively initiated from
Cutler, and/or other US global transmitter sites
onto the target test range within the Great Sandy
Desert to initiate major earthquakes in a region
previously and totally devoid of same.
On a globe one can see that the great circle
geographic polar route north from Exmouth passes
through the following locations Hong Kong, Thule
(US Air Base in Greenland), Cutler - Main = known
vlf Tx, Arecibo - Puerto Rico = known vlf Tx,
Tucuman - Argentina = known vlf Tx, Palmer and Amundsen-Scott US Antarctic bases, back to Exmouth
Tx in NW Australia. Such a series of Tx sites would
allow good coverage of the entire planet.
Interestingly the Puerto Rico site is a near exact
antipodean site for Exmouth, and both sites are
common UFO sighting areas - especially Arecibo -
which I suspect are mainly atmospheric Tesla light
energy emission "ufo's" created by the testing and
operations of both Tx E/M weapon sites pumping
scalar E/M waves through the planet's core.
There are many fascinating co-incidences in this
research. Take for instance the case of Harold E
Holt, Prime-minister of Australia from 26-01-1966
Holt disappeared whilst swimming one Sunday -
apparently after reporting to family and close
colleagues over the preceding days that he had
discovered something about the USA, and their
activities here in Australia, and their future
intentions, that deeply offended and worried him.
Intending to raise these issues in Cabinet,
followed by Parliament on the following Monday,
after his swim on the Sunday he was never seen
again. The body was never found. Imagine something
like that happening to Clinton, Reagan, Nixon, LBJ,
or say Margaret Thatcher, Harold Wilson, Harold
McMillan - don't you think demand for answers would
keep being heard in the Australian/World Press ???
Whereas in fact the case of Harold E. Holt is
rarely raised in the Press at all.
Rumors of either CIA assassination, shark attack,
heart attack, or best of all - removal by Chinese
submarine !!!, have surfaced at intervals over the
years. Recent rumor lines even suggest that Holt is
alive and well in China ..........
The Exmouth peninsular communications base is now
called the "Harold E. Holt" Naval Communication
Station ........... Obviously in honor of the man -
but why ???
One would think that our Australian Federal Police
or ASIO/ASIS could have solved the disappearance,
and/or possible murder, of an Australian
Prime-Minister in some 30 years - you do not have
to look too far for a connection and possible line
of inquiry ..........
It is quite feasible that Holt found out about the
true reasons behind the establishment of the US
Navy Exmouth Tx site and objected strongly to
Australian soil being utilized for such a
horrendous weapon system base. Was he silenced to
allow the US Navy controlled project to proceed ???
Was the base eventually named after Holt - (when
recently officially "taken over" from the US Navy
by the Royal Australian Navy) - as some sort of
perverse honor to the very man who died trying to
prevent it's installation on Australian soil ?
Then there is the case of the two young cattle
station hands who died under very mysterious
circumstances a few years ago in the Great Sandy
Desert - south of Halls Creek - on the very seismic
grid lines put in there in 1968 by Aquitaine Oil -
and within the center of the Great Sandy Desert
earthquake "test range"............
It would appear to be high time for Australians to
do something about this state of affairs - since we
appear to actually host a weapon system that has
probably led clandestinely to the death of not only
Australians - but quite probably many tens of
thousands of our fellow humans - in several
countries across the Globe.
It appears that this system was utilized to create
induced quakes in various parts of Russia, Japan,
China, Iran, and also allowed the delivery of
violent weather storms to North Korea that have
inflicted famine and near total decimation of 50%
of her agricultural land.
But all of that, the science of earthquake inducing
E/M weapons systems, and their recent deployment
and use on planet Earth must await the next
articles in this three part series.
