Sandy Creek UFO Sighting 1963
In 1963, a man from Willaston who was traveling on Lyndoch road between Gawler and Sandy Creek (heading towards Gawler) rounded a corner and came across a blood-red coloured object spanning the width of the road, he braked, and the vehicle pulled up within 3 metres of the mysterious object, which suddenly rose about 100 metres into the air, turned on its side and shot off into the night, leaving behind it a vapour trail.
The Willaston man got a very good look at the object and described it as being about 8 metres across, and four metres tall, with a concave top and flat bottom. It glowed blood-red when close to the ground, but changed colour, to a light red yellow as it flew up in the air, then took off west towards Two Wells.
The story was reported in The Advertiser Newspaper, as taking place, very close to the Sandy Creek Hotel, but no-one from the popular country pub came forward at the time that could confirm the incident.
