March 10, 1993, Maslin Beach, Australia
Here is a historic sighting from 1993, and in it something unusual happens, he doesn’t talk about it until after the photos were made. This is not unusual because UFOs have mind manipulation devices that cause the eyewitness to feel calm during the event and also to not be concerned enough after the event to talk about it for at least several days.

The 1993 Maslin Beach photograph case
At the point when Eric Thomason in Maslin Beach, Australia, watched out over the sea, he saw — to his extraordinary amazement — a UFO ascended from the waves and began flying towards him. At the point when the object came closer, Eric took out his camera and began taking photos.
— «I could feel water dribbling from the craft», he tells UFO-Aktuellt.

The photos are very hair-raising, and there are truly only two options: either Eric Thomason’s photos are the most amazing up until now, or it’s only a basic trick.
Eric Thomason, 69, is a senior national living in Maslin Beach in southern Australia. Not a long way from his home is an old deserted mine, Maslin Old Quarry, where he now and again takes his puppy for a walk.
In March 1993, Eric chose to attempt to report the old mine utilizing his child’s camera, a Kodak S50 with a Fuji 100 ASA-film. Regardless of having never claimed his very own camera and having for all intents and purposes no encountering shooting, Eric set off with a specific end goal to attempt to catch the excellent shades of the open-give mine from a role as many edges as could be expected under the circumstances. Furthermore, s photograph challenge in the magazine «Southern Times-Messenger» about the best picture of a dawn over land additionally helped him in his choice. He thought he would have the capacity to catch the dawn on film from Ochre Point, a precipice 60 meters high from where hang-lightweight flyers used to take off — yet the sun was taken cover behind a thick layer of mists.
The Sun was Hidden
Wednesday, March 10, didn’t give off an impression of being vastly improved. It was a cool morning, just 14 degrees Celsius, and a resolved twist originated from the west. From the highest point of the green precipice, Eric was compelled to acknowledge that there would not have been a dawn that morning either. An industrious layer of mists shut out the sun, and the time was 06:00 AM when Eric rather swung to confront the sea toward the west.
— «It was then that I saw a development at first glance on the water, and something resembling the tower on a nuclear submarine rose, Eric tells UFO-Sweden. At the point when the question ascended from the water I could perceive how three legs were calling attention to from the body. I was likewise ready to perceive how it was turning, and how the three legs were pulled in.»
Prior to the legs being pulled in, Eric figured out how to take his first photo of the UFO, and he assesses the separated section to be around 400 meters away. It then occurred to him how uncovered his position was. Remaining on top of the Ochre Point with the sun directly behind him made him an easy target to spot for a the UFOs.
— «I had known about individuals being taken by UFOs, so I moved down a slant adjacent area. From that point I could perceive how the light-dark question came flying to some degree south of me, and stopped over the mine. At that exact second I spotted yet another object, north of the first. That is the point at which I snapped my second picture, yet since the light from the dawn was straight into my view- I moved a little to one side.»
While taking photos from his spot five meters underneath the highest point of the bluff, the smaller UFO moved towards the bigger one, stopped, and afterward proceeded upwards, into the bigger craft.
— «I could see three lights on the outside of the bigger question and how it shone around the opening. Not long after I’d taken the fourth and last photo the bigger question climbed straight up and vanished over me. At the point when that happened, I could feel dilute dribbling from the specialty on me.»
In a report frame to the Australian UFO-bunch Australian Flying Saucer Research Society, Eric gauges the span of the question be 40 meters, and the separation (when he first observed it ascend from the sea) to be 2 kilometers. While conversing with him on the telephone, Eric discloses to me how it never got nearer to him than 400 meters.
At the point when the occurrence was over, Eric returned home. Nonetheless, regardless of his astounding experience he chose to stay close-lipped regarding it, even to his better half. He initially needed to have the film created keeping in mind the end goal to see whether there in fact were any photos of it. Be that as it may, he was not in a rush. Before he turned in the film for improvement he made a point to go through the whole film. Also, not until May, 1994, when he had viewed a UFO appear on TV, did he present the photos.
— «At first he didn’t disclose to me anything since I wasn’t feeling great at the time, and later he trusted that the photos wouldn’t indicate anything», Mrs. Thomason says when UFO-Sweden converses with her. «In any case, after he had the film created he revealed them to me. I’m sure it’s a spaceship. Eric is not the lying sort, and I trust him.»
Still, there are a few subtle elements in his story that merit contemplating. Eric Thomason set his wake up timer to 05:45 keeping in mind the end goal to get the dawn, which occurred around 06:00. Amid these 15 minutes, Mr. Thomason had sufficient energy to get up, put on a few layers of warm dress, bring his camera, get the puppy at the back of the house, stroll to Ochre Point (which as indicated by Mrs. Thomason takes 5 minutes), climb the 60 meters tall bluff, sit tight for the fizzled dawn, and after that stroll on to another site close by with a specific end goal to watch out over the sea. At 06:00 sharp he took his first photo of the protest. The brilliant blue sky on the main photo proposes the pictures were taken later in the day.
In a letter, Eric portrays what happened when the photos came back from the photograph lab: «When the film had been created I saw yet another object on the main photo, which I hadn’t seen amid the episode itself. A dark spot out there, somewhere between the question and the edge of the photo, which may have been a plane a few kilometers away, or a littler UFO on its approach to meet with the bigger one.»
As indicated by Eric, the negatives were broke down by Kodak in Adelaide, however he doesn’t know anything about the outcomes.
— The negatives were sent in by Mark Tarrot, a UFOlogist. He realizes what the outcomes were.
The camera Eric utilized was a modest Kodak S50, obtained in a retail chain for 40 USD. The S50 utilizes ordinary 35 mm film, and has never been accessible on the Swedish market. Its concentration is set, and can’t be changed. There are, all in all, no catches to push aside from the shade discharge. Cameras of this sort are constantly determined to boundlessness, and have an expansive profundity of field. What’s more, here’s the place a vulnerability gets to be distinctly clear. On the off chance that you take a gander at the primary photo the protest, which as far as anyone knows is 400 meters away, is in center while the skyline is fluffy. Indeed, both the protest and the skyline ought to be in core interest.
That aside, the pictures concur with Eric’s story, and amid our whole discussion he answers every one of my inquiries right, notwithstanding when I attempt to trap him.
Mr. Thomason’s photos have brought on a great deal of consideration around the world, and have even wound up in an American UFO chronological registry.
— «There have been such a large number of individuals calling, that I’m presently beginning to become ill of it», Eric says while specifying how he is extremely basic to other UFO photos. «In any case, I’ve started searching for them in the nighttimes while out strolling the canine. I know there are UFOs from various planets in the universe. Yet, so far I’ve just observed shooting stars.»
At long last I ask Erik Thomason the most vital question of them all: Are the photos truly certified? Do they truly delineate the protest you said rose up out of the sea?
— «Yes, completely, he says quickly and includes, OK?»
