Twin brothers have stood by their claims they witnessed two UFOs battling in the clear night sky over the Australian Outback nearly 40 years ago.  

Rob and Phil Tindale were just 10 years old when they say they saw two objects hovering in the skies outside their home in Sterling, Adelaide Hills in February 1980. 

A distinct ‘bright yellow object’ was spotted, which hovered about 50metres above ground level, before a second one appeared, emitting ‘a red light’, they said.  

The red object attempted to charge at the yellow UFO several times, before the ‘blow flies on steroids’ zoomed across the sky with ‘extreme speed’.   

The yellow UFO made an ’emergency crash landing’ into a tree, while the red object appeared to disappeared into the distance in a bizarre 15 minute account.

The brothers rushed to wake their parents in their room, who gave a lacklustre response and simply told the boys to go back to bed. 

But Phil and Rob’s grandmother the next day cut out an article in the local paper about a UFO crash in Stirling on the same night. 

The story titled ‘Aussie Sure UFO Damaged Trees’ was reported by Daryl Browne, who heard a tree ‘creaking and groaning’.

He walked towards the noise and shone his torch on an eight metre yellow craft likened to a speedboat, wedged between broken branches. 

Mr Browne called authorities but the yellow object managed to take flight before he he and detectives arrived at the scene. 

No traces of the UFO were left behind and the only evidence of the object could be seen through the damages inflicted on the trees. 

‘From the window we saw a bright yellow object slightly larger than the apparent size of Venus bobbing around just above the tree line at the end of the valley,’ Phil said. 

‘Shortly a second object appeared. It emitted a red light. It entered our view from above and approached the yellow object. 

‘The red object zoomed up to the yellow object, stopped and reversed, and then did it again as if to prompt a reaction. And it got one!’ 

Phil said the yellow object took off in close pursuit of the red opponent. 

‘They crossed the valley-head back and forth many times in a hectic paired chase,’ he said. 

‘Eventually the yellow one sped off at extraordinary speed to our right, and disappeared behind the hill. 

‘The red one had also gone. Neither myself, nor my brother were certain whether the red one had followed or simply left.’

Phil described his surroundings to have a few built houses and was sparsely treed, with clear night skies and no noise during the reported incident.  

‘On this night, there was no noise, no car engines, just silence,’ he said. 

‘Not that this was unusual, there were fewer people in the hills back then. But there was no engine noise from this bobbing light at the end of our valley.’ 

Two brothers say they’re SURE they witnessed two UFOs ‘battle’ in the skies in Sterling
