Shane Ryan Research & Documentary
Shane Ryan is a researcher looking for eyewitnesses and anything else that might explain what everyone clearly saw on that Wednesday before Easter in April 1966.

Around 200 people, most of them young students at what was then Westall High School, were out for morning recess", says Shane. "Many saw the strange object descend behind pine trees in The Grange Reserve, and then later ascend and fly away at great speed.

The people who ran over to the reserve found a huge ring in the paddock where the object had been seen.

Some people reported five light aircraft following or chasing the object.

Westall 1966: a Suburban UFO Mystery

On Friday 4th June 2010 a TV documentary by Shane Ryan screened on SciFi channel (Pay TV) titled Westall 1966: a Suburban UFO Mystery.

A number of callers to Melbourne talk back radio stations have recounted stories of people there that day. Terri (woman) told Steve Vizard on MTR1377 that she was 11 at the time and had a clear memory of the day. She recounted her story of being one of the first on the scene but had not spoken of the incident in years because she didnt want people to think she was crazy. She also said that their headmaster had told all the students not to talk about the incident or they would get detention.

DVD: Westall 1966: a Suburban UFO Mystery

Forty-four years on, amateur sleuth Shane Ryan is stirring up the past. Motivated by a deep sense of injustice at how the students were treated, he’s tracking down former students and staff and searching for the authorities that presided over the day.

Westall 1966: a Suburban UFO Mystery is a documentary style film detailing Shane Ryan's investigation into the mystery. The film takes viewers on a journey into the collective memory of this extraordinary event that swept into the everyday lives of witnesses like a “bolt out of the blue”. Students, teachers and nearby workers all share, in startling detail, their recollections of the day’s events. Many of their stories are revealed here for the first time.

Unfolding like a classic detective story, the film is driven by the search of tireless investigator Shane Ryan, who has his own, very personal reasons for wanting to uncover the truth. It is both a riveting investigation into Australia’s own ‘Roswell’ and a powerful examination of belief, truth, imagination and memory.

SPOILER ALERT


If you wish to learn more about the events of the day plus some very good research then go ahead, buy the DVD and you will enjoy it. If you are seeking a definitive answer, a UFO answer then don't, because you will be disappointed.

While the DVD explains much of what happened on that fateful day, like most mysteries there is not a definitive answer but many theories and opinions.

UFO Park


Kingston Council will install a UFO-themed playground in Grange Reserve, featuring a 3.3 metre high spaceship big enough to hold seven children at a time. The silver spaceship, loosely inspired by the descriptions of witnesses back in 1966, will be trimmed with blue LED lighting.
