This document initiates a thorough investigation into reports of UFO sightings in the Woomera Restricted Area (WPA), where more than 40 top-secret nuclear weapons tests codenamed vixen was conducted in 1959-63 under strict security conditions. It is located on 270,000 square kilometers of WPA land, which includes the Wewak area mentioned in the report and the nearby Taranaki, Maraling, and Emu ranges.

The rigor of the study was due to a number of reasons: control over unwanted public interest, national security, and curiosity on the part of scientists. Several dozen witnesses were questioned in connection with a series of reported sightings in Wewak, including Commonwealth Police, WRE officers, members of the Armed Forces, a "local patrol officer" and members of the public.

At the time of writing, tests were being conducted at facilities inside WPA, and WRE was also developing a space program at the Wumer missile range. From 1952 to 1963, the British Government, with the consent and support of Australia, conducted nuclear tests in three regions of Australia - on the Montebello Islands off the coast of Western Australia and on emu Field and Maralinga in South Australia.

UFO sightings became widespread during the Cold War (1945-1990) amid political and military tensions between the Soviet Union, the United States, and their allies. The UFO problem became widespread during the Cold War (1945-1990). The anxiety and paranoia caused by espionage, weapons testing, and satellites found expression in Hollywood science fiction films depicting humanity being attacked by enemy aliens who decided to disrupt the American way of life.

The scientific experts who consulted for these and other reports on Wewak sightings provided a range of explanations, from flying saucers and satellite cones to meteorites, the effects of static electricity on Wewak weather, and " reflections." Long-range car headlights in a low inversion layer.

UFO sightings became so common in the 1970s that the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), responsible for investigating such events, provided public members with a summary of official surveys and recent sightings, reporting UFO sightings.
