"BANJAWARN BANG" REVISITED
Part 1 of this "Bright Skies" series of articles described an
anomalous event-consisting of a bright, flat-trajectory fireball, a
huge flash of white light, a major explosion, a red flare rising
skywards to a great height, and a 3.6-3.9 Richter-scale earthquake - which occurred on the late evening of 28 May 1993 on or
close to Banjawarn sheep station (ranch) in the northeastern
Goldfields region of Western Australia.
The majority of eyewitness evidence placed the "ground zero" of the
1-2 kilotonne explosion on the northwestern edge of this Banjawarn
A large hemisphere (some two times as large as a half-setting Sun)
of opaque orange-red colour with a silver lining then rose from
ground level to bob around for two hours before turning off as if a
light switch had been thrown.
The Banjawarn sheep station soon became newsworthy due to its
purchase and occupation in 1993 by the Japanese sect, the Aum
Supreme Truth (Aum Shinrikyo), of Tokyo subway gas-attack fame. The
sect’s stated purpose at that time was "to conduct experiments there
[at Banjawarn] for the benefit of mankind". It was reported in the
media in 1995 that Aum sect members had experimented there with
sarin nerve gas on sheep-as a prelude to the Tokyo gas attack on 20
The Aum sect’s deputy leader, Kiyohide Hayakawa, visited
April 1993. Aided by Perth-based Japanese Mahikari sect agent,
Japanese-born Yasuko Shimada, he hired a light plane and flew with a
Perth real estate consultant (Japanese-Australian, Micky Webb) out
to the northeastern Goldfields to view several "for sale" sheep
Interestingly, in his pre-Aum days, Hayakawa had studied for his
Masters degree at Osaka University in "Greening Technology". His
thesis is marked highly confidential and is under top-secret wraps.
The University authorities originally stated that he studied
"Anti-Desertification" in the Climate Engineering department.
However, Japanese investigative journalist Yoichi Clark Shimatsu
(click left image)
has uncovered strong evidence that
department is a cover for secret Japanese electromagnetic (EM)
More recently, in response to Shimatsu’s published story concerning Hayakawa’s true area of study, Osaka University now insists that
Hayakawa studied "Landscape Engineering". The outcome of the
deployment of certain types of EM weapons is, if you like, a higher
order of "Landscape Engineering"!
These weapons systems appear to be candidates, amongst many other
examples, for the geophysical environmental warfare weapons
originally envisaged by Professor Gordon McDonald in Nigel Calder’s
1968 book, Unless Peace Comes.
Hayakawa left Osaka University and soon found his way into the
Unification Church-the Korean Moonies sect. The Reverend Moon was a
long-time friend of the recently deceased North Korean "Great
Leader", and is now known as an associate of George Bush in new
Moonies ventures in South America. After some years, Hayakawa became
a high-ranking member but broke with this sect under cloudy
circumstances in 1987. He left the Moonies (with their
permission?) - with US$20 million of their funds, the deeds to several
Tokyo buildings, and the rights to several Moonies businesses
joined the Aum sect.
According to an analyst for the Japanese Police, Hayakawa was under
surveillance at this time - believed to be a possible spy for the
North Korean military. He inadvertently led them straight to the
relatively unknown Aum sect.
Hayakawa apparently utilized these Moonies assets to buy his way
into the Aum sect - to whom he brought some 35 fellow Moonies. He rose
almost immediately to the position of deputy leader, running a
nearly separate organization surrounded by his ex-Moonies cadres, in
his so-called "Aum Construction Ministry". Hayakawa reportedly began
to use the multi-faceted Aum organization as a convenient cover for
a variety of drugs, arms and high-tech scientific equipment (of use
in weapons manufacture) dealings around the world. For instance,
during the Gulf War, Saddam Hussein was among his trading partners.
Hayakawa visited Russia 22 times, and North Korea 17 times since
1992. He traded with KGB official Vitaly Masenko - operating under
cover of the Ukraine Ministry of Industry and Trade.
previously worked closely with the Ukrainian chapter of the
Unification Church since at least the mid-1980s.
JAPANESE CULTS: COVERT POLITICAL SUPPORT
Yasuko Shimada, Hayakawa’s contact and helper in Western Australia,
also had an interesting career prior to her 1993 Banjawarn role,
according to author Garry Greenwood.
In his 1997 book, All The Emperor’s Men, Greenwood discusses his
experiences with the international Japanese cult Mahikari. He was a
devoted member of this "New Civilization" spiritual healing religion
for some 17 years and was their number-two spiritual
leader/executive in Australia for about 10 years.
Several years ago Greenwood left this sect upon discovering that its
founder, Lt Colonel Yoshikazu Okada (ex-Emperor’s bodyguard and
Imperial Guards), had been instrumental in planning the Japanese
Army’s infamous "Rape of Nanking" in China prior to World War II. He
also found out that at the higher Japanese Mahikari command levels
the cult was viewed as designed with just one purpose: to initiate
the placement of the current Emperor of Japan back to his "rightful"
position as Emperor of Planet Earth within our lifetime. Apparently
these people believe that in an earlier lifetime, many of thousands
of years ago, the present Japanese Emperor ruled this entire planet,
and it is now his ordained destiny to rule the Earth again.
Greenwood noted that Yasuko Shimada, Hayakawa’s 1993
was instrumental in establishing Mahikari in Australia in 1974. This
cult has only some 2,000 members here, but it concentrates on the
rich and powerful.
Jo Court, the wife of Western Australian Premier Richard Court, has
been a member for some 15 years, and she and her husband celebrated
his February 1993 election win all the next day at the Perth Mahikari temple, before leaving two weeks later on a holiday tour of
Japan, reportedly involving many meetings with powerful and
influential Mahikari-sponsored Japanese "businessmen".
It is interesting just how many events in this Banjawarn story
happened in sequence during early 1993.
In April 1993, yet another Japanese group arrived in WA. The
Japanese Environment Ministry approached the Western Australian
Government with a plan to undertake an "Anti-Desertification"
in the eastern Goldfields area of WA. This project went silent after
the Aum affair exploded into the world news, but after help by Richard Court and Deputy Premier Hendy Cowan it is now in full swing
around Kalgoorlie and Laverton. Japanese university post-graduate
students are tending electronic monitoring equipment installed all
over these areas of the eastern Goldfields - "in order to learn how to
green third-world deserts".
Joint research by Yoichi Shimatsu in Japan and Garry Greenwood has
uncovered a trail of connections between the covert Japanese
money-power supporters of both the Aum and Mahikari sects. These
included prominent LDP (Liberal Democratic Party) politicians such
as Shintaro Ishihara, co-author (with the late Sony chairman
Morita) of a book entitled The Japan That Can Say No. This 1989
book’s basic thesis suggested that Japan should ally with Russia,
and that by mating Japanese microchips to Russian super-weapons they
could put the finger up to the USA and jointly rule the world. It
appears to describe the plan that is currently being followed by a
covert money-power group that controls the Japanese Government.
Much evidence suggests that both the Japanese Aum and Mahikari sects
are offshoots of covert Japanese God-Emperor worship groups and
serve mainly as deniable political (and military technology) action
arms intended to aid their particular Japanese brand of world
It is unlikely that most international members are aware
of this or their dupe roles in this scenario. Jo Court was informed
of this Mahikari-Emperor scenario by her (now ex-) friend Garry
Greenwood, but she refused to believe it.
In April 1993
Hayakawa, aided by the Perth real estate consultant,
spent 12 days examining sheep station properties in the
(click right image) outback region of Western Australia.
Flying in to each station, Hayakawa strangely and openly asked to be
shown immediately the uranium prospects that were located there.
Hayakawa took small rock samples away for assay from each uranium
prospect that he was shown. He then requested a station 4WD vehicle
to "tour the station alone to view the property potential and make
up his mind re purchase".
According to information from the consultant, Hayakawa drove to
locations within the central areas of the properties, often over the
soil-covered granites. At first he attempted to drill two small
holes into the ground with a small portable rock-drill, but the
drill soon failed and he had to dig small holes by spade. He placed
an electrode into each ground-hole, connected the two electrodes to
a small electrical instrument about the size of a fax machine, and
proceeded to record some electrical or electromagnetic variable for
several hours at each site. He did not move the electrodes at all
during this process.
Back at the station quarters he would "number-crunch" this data all
night long on a powerful portable computer.
Hayakawa was rather touchy when the consultant asked him what these
procedures were all about, and he mumbled that it was necessary for
the Aum’s future experiments "for the benefit of mankind" to choose
the correct location. In fact, he carried out these ground
geophysical surveys without the knowledge of any of the station
owners, who thought he was merely sightseeing around their
properties in station 4WD vehicles.
As a geophysicist often involved in geophysical surveys of many
types for mineral exploration purposes, I could not immediately
understand or deduce what electrical system Hayakawa was utilizing
or for what purpose. Normal electrical and electromagnetic ground
surveys involve moving the sensors along lines over the prospective
ore-body location, not measuring some parameter for hours at one
static location, and they never involve number-crunching
measurements all night long.
Hayakawa repeated this procedure of uranium sampling, ground
geophysics and all-night number-crunching at each sheep station that
Eventually, after further aerial surveying of
decided that this station was ideal for Aum’s purposes. It appears
that he chose Banjawarn due to its isolation rather than its
contained uranium prospects which, if anything, were much smaller
and lower in grade than those located on the other stations he had
Banjawarn is arguably the most isolated sheep station in the eastern
Goldfields, and the area lying along its northern, northeastern and
eastern perimeter is even more isolated sand-dune/spinifex country
linked to the edge of the Gibson Desert. The entire area is almost
totally devoid of inhabitants.
Hayakawa attempted to purchase the station then and there in
mid-April 1993, showing the owner a briefcase full of Australian
paper money notes. The owner, being a prudent man and well aware of colour ink-jet printers, refused to deal in that manner and
requested a properly signed legal purchase document and the handover
of a reputable WA bank cheque.
Obviously Hayakawa was keen for the Aum to own the
right away, in mid-April 1993-which suggests he was operating to a
tight time schedule.
Hayakawa then immediately returned to Perth and left for Tokyo, but
in early May 1993 he traveled to the Soviet naval base at Cam Ranh
Bay in Vietnam - according to Japanese Police inspection of his travel
agent’s ticket stub lists.
Later in April 1993 two other Aum personnel arrived in Perth from
Tokyo, whereupon they utilized the services of a firm of solicitors
to establish a WA company and draw up a legal purchase document
which would be satisfactory to the owners of Banjawarn station.
These Aum representatives had a poor command of English and were
quite agitated at the slow and lengthy legal process necessary to
effect the purchase agreement-which again suggests a tight timetable
for their agenda.
This Banjawarn purchase agreement was signed on 23 April 1993.
Yasuko Shimada, being an Australian resident, was co-signatory on
the Banjawarn ownership papers in order to help the Aum get past
Australian land ownership regulations. Without her Mahikari help,
the Aum would have had severe problems gaining title to
and conducting experiments there "for the benefit of mankind".
I find it interesting that the Mahikari sect includes amongst its
members the wife of the Premier of Western Australia; the same
Premier who had an investigation conducted into the Aum sect’s
activities in connection with the "Banjawarn Bang". He was prompted
by my 1995 report to him regarding the early
fireball/explosion/quake data that suggested this event could have
been nuclear in nature and was certainly suspicious enough to
warrant a full scientific investigation.
Premier Court stated in a letter to me (dated 15 May 1996) that this
WA Police inquiry had established that the Banjawarn event was
natural in origin. Yet not one of the eyewitnesses (whose testimony
was detailed in my report) was ever approached by the WA Police (or
anyone else) during the alleged investigation. It appears there is
room here for some interesting scenarios and, at least, a few
important questions require answering.
The exchange of Aum’s bank cheque to the owner of Banjawarn took
place on 1 June 1993. Thus, actual ownership of Banjawarn station
was in the hands of the Aum sect via a front company only three days
after the fireball event of 28 May 1993, though this had been
guaranteed by signed agreement some 35 days before the Banjawarn
The WA Government’s Pastoral Board finally registered the official
change of ownership on 1 September 1993.
THE AUM THAT NEVER WAS
In mid-1995 the chief lawyer of the US Senate inquiry into the Aum
sect informed this author of the Aum’s great interest in Nikola
Tesla’s EM earthquake-inducing weapons technology. This suggested an
interesting line of research and posed the question of whether there
was a connection between the bizarre fireball events of the night of
28 May 1993 and the interest shown by Hayakawa and the Aum sect in
On 26 May 1993 a party of Australian and Japanese amateur
astronomers was touring the Goldfields en route from Leonora to
Meekatharra when they encountered several Japanese people camped in
the bush north of Leonora. The Japanese astronomers remarked to
their companions that these people were quite strange in their
demeanor and conversation, and they were seen to be very oddly
attired. It is quite possible they were Aum members, as the sect is
renowned in Japan for strange dress and behavior.
From where they were camped it was only about one hour by 4WD
vehicle on bush roads to the 28 May event’s ground-zero location
near or on Banjawarn station. These people were ideally placed to
cover the fireball events that occurred just two days later.
Japanese tourists are very rare in this region which is well off the
The Australian Federal Police informed me in April 1995 that
sect personnel, including their science minister Hideo Murai (a
nuclear physicist, regarded as "the most intelligent living
Japanese"), were at Banjawarn on 28 May 1993, having arrived in
Australia in mid-May.
(Interestingly, Murai also had a
background in EM technology. He had worked at Kobe Steel,
researching microwave and other EM ray/wave technology applications
for cold moulding of steel, having graduated as an astrophysicist
specializing in cosmic X-ray analysis. His Kobe Steel laboratory was
at the epicenter of the great 1995 Kobe earthquake.)
About one month later the Federal Police retracted this story,
stating that there was no evidence of any Aum members being at
Banjawarn (or in Australia) at the time of the
therefore the Aum could not have been involved in the event of 28
The amateur astronomers’ information suggests that the Federal
Police were at best mistaken. Unknown Aum members could easily have
arrived in eastern Australia posing as Japanese tourists and might
have been missed by Australian immigration authorities.
The Australian Federal Police also claimed later that ownership of
the Banjawarn station was only transferred to the
Aum sect as late
as September 1993, hence there was no possible tie-up with the
fireball events. Technically this is correct, since this was when
the WA Pastoral Board registered the change of ownership. However,
this claim is very misleading since the purchase agreement was
signed by both parties on 23 April 1993, and Aum handed over the
bank cheque on 1 June 1993.
At the time of the "fireball" event at 23.03 hours on Friday evening
28 May 1993, the Aum knew that Banjawarn was theirs by legally
enforceable right. They also knew there was rarely anyone in
residence at the station buildings during weekends from Friday to
Monday when, typically, the station owner and his wife would drive
100 km to the southwest to stay with relatives.
The party of strangely dressed Japanese persons (Aum?) could easily
have checked that all tracks in the event ground-zero were devoid of
personnel-if this was even considered necessary. They could
certainly have filmed the events of 28 May and/or carried out
monitoring of field scientific parameters.
In late September 1993
Shoko Asahara, the bearded guru-leader of
the Aum sect, arrived in Perth with deputy leader
Hayakawa and several
group members (including young teenage girls), carrying excess air
freight baggage reportedly costing some A$330,000.
This "baggage" included laboratory and "mining equipment" in the
cargo hold, as well as dangerous chemicals (hydrochloric acid)
concealed in toiletry containers and sake bottles in personal
luggage. Many of these items were confiscated by Australian Customs,
and two Aum members spent time in detention over their infringement
of air safety regulations.
The Aum entourage hired a couple of twin-engine planes to fly them
out to Banjawarn. They later utilized the planes for low-level
aerial race around the entire station area as well as examination
of areas outside the station to the east, south and north.
The Australian Federal Police alleges that the Aum sect
nerve gas on sheep at Banjawarn station during its September 1993
occupation. The evidence for this is slim and would probably fall
down if ever tested in court. Moreover, there is copious evidence
that sarin was not the gas used in the Tokyo subway gas attack.
Gas attacks on the Japanese railway system, and strange (possibly
terrorist-initiated) "accidents" in Japanese nuclear power plants,
have continued well after Asahara’s incarceration. There is some
evidence that points to North Korean terrorist activities being the
source of all of these incidents-including the original Tokyo subway
Today, Asahara is generally being vilified in the Japanese/world
media and is kept in a cold cell; but Hayakawa is hardly ever heard
of while under house arrest (where his ’warders’ call him "Sir"!).
It appears likely that the Aum was simply nominated as the source of
the gas attack to shut down a compromised intelligence asset and
hide the true state of affairs regarding North Korea.
NUCLEAR BOMB SCENARIO
The eyewitness observations of the Banjawarn explosion of
1993 resemble a description of a night-time nuclear blast.
Calculations utilizing the seismic signals received around WA
suggested that the energies involved in the explosion were at least
1-2 kilotonnes of TNT equivalent, i.e., similar to a small nuclear
bomb. Following mid-1995 press reports that linked the Aum to
attempts to procure nuclear weapons, I decided that this possibility
was serious enough to alert the US Senate inquiry and the Australian
However, a lack of radioactive dust particles in
Australian collectors for that month, as well as intelligence
information and other considerations, soon led me to discount the
nuclear bomb theory. However, the US Senate is still researching
During their brief one-month occupation of Banjawarn station in
1993, the Aum entourage established a field chemical laboratory in
one of the Banjawarn station houses. They also built a new graded
track down to the edge of the large salt lake south of the station
buildings, presumably to allow better access for uranium sampling.
There is solid evidence from Australian Federal Police sources that
the Aum re-sampled many uranium mineral shows in the district and
air-freighted a trunkload of local uranium ore back to Japan.
Samples of this ore left in the Banjawarn laboratory and found by
the Federal Police have been analyzed in the WA Government
Laboratory in Perth. These rocks contained such low levels of
uranium that the chemists and Police laughed at the Aum’s apparent
stupidity in attempting to use these ores for nuclear-bomb-making
purposes. There is no other evidence of any illegal uranium mining
or large-scale sampling by the Aum at or near Banjawarn.
Thus Hayakawa had undertaken geochemical sampling of the local
uranium shows before and after the 28 May ’93 Banjawarn fireball
event with its associated explosion, earthquake and two-hour
orange-red hemispherical structure.
Later news reports, sourced from an Aum detainee imprisoned in
Tokyo, suggested that Aum had attempted to extract fissionable
uranium from the Banjawarn ore.
This nuclear technology story fitted the earlier press releases of
US Senator Sam Nunn, who, as senior member of the US Senate inquiry
into the Aum sect and Weapons of Mass Destruction (Oct-Nov 1995),
had argued that there was evidence the Aum had attempted to acquire
nuclear weapons from their Russian contacts, and had also attempted
to develop their own nuclear weapons in Aum factories.
On the available evidence, Nunn was worried that the Aum may have
succeeded in either endeavour and had therefore acquired nuclear
weapons. His worry was justified, given media information suggesting
that Aum leader Asahara was not only predicting a future major
nuclear war between Japan and the USA, but was also plotting to
initiate such a war by detonating a clandestine nuclear weapon
within continental USA.
The ore available to the Aum at Banjawarn was very low grade, and,
in common with all uranium ore, consisted of 99.999% 238U with only
very minuscule amounts of 235U - the highly reactive, fissionable
bomb-making uranium isotope. Until the recent development of laser
extraction technology, it would take years to acquire useful amounts
of this isotope - using large centrifuge and gas extraction industrial
plants operating on huge amounts of ore with massive electrical
power requirements. It still takes large amounts of ore but can now
be achieved in months rather than years.
It was obviously impossible for the Aum to effect recovery of
sufficient 235U for a standard uranium nuclear bomb in their field
laboratory and with their limited mining actions at Banjawarn. But a
"dirty" bomb (238U-cased tactical or micro-nuke, as acquired from
Russia?) could possibly have been achieved by the Aum’s actions.
However, Hayakawa had expended a great deal of effort in his
geophysical all-night-long number-crunching surveys and in his
geochemical sampling of the local uranium shows. What was his
purpose, and was there a link with the events of 28 May 1993?
The possible links between the Aum sect and the Banjawarn events can
be summarized as:
Aum’s interest in the same piece of Planet Earth as the
strange "fireball" and its associated events, and at approximately
the same time;
(2) Hayakawa’s earlier "Landscape Engineering", i.e., EM weapons
studies at Osaka University, and Murai’s EM work at Kobe Steel;
(3) The US Senate inquiry chief lawyer’s comments re the
interest in Tesla’s earthquake-inducing EM weapons systems;
(4) The strange nature of the "fireball" events, as reported by
eyewitnesses, apparently not fitting a normal, natural meteorite
SOVIET/RUSSIAN-JAPANESE EM WEAPONS SCENARIO
Japanese seismologists’ first inkling of EM earthquake-inducing
weapons technology came at a joint meeting between them and Soviet
seismologists after the huge Armenian earthquake of 1988.
Strongly supportive evidence about these weapons came from a Moscow
source developed by Japanese investigative journalists. This person
was present during a conference in Moscow (January 1990) when a top
Japanese delegation, led by Foreign Minister Shintaro Abe, met with
USSR President Gorbachev and his aide, Politburo member Alexander Yakovlev. Their intent was to establish "bilateral cooperation".
At further meetings in January 1991, Gorbachev via Yakovlev offered
the Japanese the USSR’s super-secret intercontinental EM weapons
technology - capable of producing earthquakes - for US$900 million. This EM weapon system had been on active service in the USSR
Gorbachev also agreed with Japanese Diet member Toshio Yamaguchi to
the setting up of a joint Japan-Russia University in Moscow that
would be tasked with co-opting the brightest young nuclear physicist
minds of both countries to develop new second - and third - generation EM super-weapons by mating Japanese microchip and electronics
know-how to Russian first-generation weapons technology. Note the
scenario similarity to that of the book,
The Japan That Can Say No.
This university was soon formed, and under the cover of "Cultural
Studies" was administered by the Aum sect and one
became Yeltsin’s head of the Security Council - after the late 1991
coup that removed Gorbachev. The Aum cadres first arrived in Moscow
in late 1991. Under the support of Lobov, given many hours of free
time on Radio Moscow and access to the Russian Army, the Aum soon
had more Russian members (over 50,000) than Japanese (around
The Aum sect was utilized to effect many covert arms purchases in
Russia as cover for the Japanese Government. Yakovlev still managed
the Japanese/Aum relationship - but from behind Lobov, due to this
close association with the now-tainted Gorbachev. Both met Hayakawa
repeatedly over the next few years.
The asking price for this EM weapons technology exchange was US$900
million-but it was not destined for the USSR exchequer. The US
Senate inquiry into the Aum found evidence that very large sums of
money had indeed been transferred to Lobov’s Swiss bank account, but
did not know why! Several people ended up very dead in Russia whilst
attempting to research this scenario.
This intelligence raises the possibility that a test site would be
required for demonstrating the intercontinental range and
effectiveness of said EM weapon system to the purchaser. The weapon
would need to be ’fired’ from an existing KGB transmitter (Tx) site
somewhere inside Russia, and/or from a KGB-controlled naval vessel.
(Remember, Hayakawa visited the Russian Navy at Cam Ranh Bay soon
after his April 1993 visit to WA.)
Probably two or three actual
transmitters would be required to effect the fireball and associated
events. This test site could not be in highly populated Japan for
obvious reasons; nor could it be inside Russia’s borders, where the
Russians totally controlled the target site, since the purchaser
might suspect a sham-set up to extract their money.
Western Australia demonstrates a similar intercontinental test-range
distance from, say, the Siberian Kamchatka Peninsula, as that from
Japan to the eastern seaboard cities of the USA.
Kamchatka contains a huge, 30-km-diameter, circular EM weapons Tx
site - which the infamous flight KAL 007 was attempting to gain
intelligence on, before being shot down by Soviet forces on 31
Obviously one or several test-firing demonstrations of the EM weapon
system’s many capabilities would be in order before any US$900
million could be handed over for the weapon. What better way than to
purchase an isolated Australian outback station to act as the
independent Japanese target and test range? Practically no one lives
in this desert to notice the tests. If someone did, they would
dismiss them as natural meteorites. The biggest and most explosive
test, and the one involving major earthquake initiation, was best
conducted prior to the Aum’s official residency there.
US nuclear physicist and former US Army
Tom Bearden has
researched Soviet EM weapons systems for over 20 years. He has
documented many eyewitness accounts from around the world of "Tesla
fireballs" and large spherical or hemispherical orange-red "Tesla
shields". Bearden believes that the Banjawarn incident and
associated events fit perfectly to known Soviet/Russian EM weapons
A Tesla fireball is created by two or more transmitters broadcasting
Tesla rays to create a slug of very high ’infolded’ EM energy that
is moved across three-dimensional space by manipulation of the ray
parameters. When over or in the target, their contained EM energy is
released in microseconds to create nuclear bomb-sized explosions or
A Tesla shield consists of highly charged scalar EM field-generated
plasmas capable of blowing electrical circuits in missiles or
aircraft, thus downing them or removing their threat potential for
accurate weapons delivery. A Tesla shield is also believed to be
capable of engineering changes within the atomic nucleus such that
slow application of low-level EM energy transmutes the nuclear
isotopes within a warhead from, say, 235U to 238U; i.e., this
technology can ’dud’ nuclear warheads in their silos or in flight.
Alternatively, rapid application of high EM energy levels may cause
warheads to be prematurely detonated.
HAYAKAWA’S REAL PURPOSE AROUND BANJAWARN
So why was Hayakawa carrying out a race field geophysical survey on
the sheep stations around Banjawarn in April 1993? The following
scenario is considered plausible.
Hayakawa needed to know the local ’infolded’ EM (Tesla ray)
or magneto-telluric parameters. This data would allow for accurate
targeting of the Russian EM weapon, and for a study to detect
changes induced during and after the actual fireball-explosion-quake
weapon test. Obviously the Japanese powers wanted to know all they
could about the technology.
For test purposes Hayakawa also required knowledge of the U208/U205
ratio in the local uranium ore shows around the district. Repeating
these analyses during and after the tests would allow an assessment
of the nuclear warhead ’dudding’ ability of the Tesla rays within
the huge orange-red hemisphere that formed north of Banjawarn on the
night of 28 May ’93.
Thus, the simple Aum Banjawarn field laboratory could easily handle
analysis to determine the 238U/235U ratios of the local uranium ore
samples. Any changes in these ratios would demonstrate the Russian
claims about the transmutation of radioactive warhead material. Such
a scenario appears more plausible than the impossibility of the
attempting to extract 235U from the Banjawarn ores in the field
A second fireball was reportedly seen at Banjawarn that night, at
24.00 hours. It appeared to arc up from ground level, high over
Banjawarn, before crashing to Earth inside the orange-red hemisphere
Was this a small test missile, with electronic navigation
and a payload of uranium ore, designed to aid testing of this Tesla
shield’s ability to dud both electronic and radioactive nuclei?
AMERICAN EM WEAPONS TESTING SCENARIO
A third large fireball was seen over Banjawarn at 5.00 am by truck
drivers in May or June of ’93. It flew a nearly identical low-level
nap-of-the-Earth trajectory and track to the first fireball of 28
May ’93. It was similar in all respects, except we do not know if it
made a Diesel-engine roaring noise in flight. Another low-level,
large roaring fireball was observed by a dogger (dingo trapper)
flying this same track from Laverton to Banjawarn in about 1988-89.
Other "Tesla shield" structures consisting of orange-red hemispheres
and spheres were seen north of Banjawarn much earlier in the 1980s,
and in late 1988-89 and during 1992.
This data suggests either that a very strange natural Earth EM
system is operational in this region, or possibly that alien
activity has been ongoing in this area for some time. Or perhaps
group other than the Japanese Aum has been utilizing the area as its
EM testing ground for some years.
Certainly I and several witnesses experienced odd effects just west
of this area in 1988 whilst engaged in a gold exploration project.
Three HF radio systems, a computer and three 4WD vehicles all
suffered burnt-out electrical circuits at 11.00 am one morning. All
of these systems were isolated from each other and spread apart by
distances varying from 10 to 50 kilometers. At the time we joked
about nuclear EMP blasts and UFOs (none seen!).
This electronics burn-out incident now looks like a strike from an
OTHR EMP plasma wave system - such as is currently being deployed at
Laverton, WA, Alice Springs, NT, and
Longreach, Qld. Sold to the
public as simply "Over-the-Horizon Radar" (OTHR)
hertzian waves, these systems actually have other, hidden effects.
By utilizing pulsed radar beams of high power, they can create and
project a charged EM plasma via waveguide layers in the
This can be triggered to create severe Earth-dielectric induced
currents, causing electronic damage, human electrocution, and other
collateral damage upon targets located thousands of miles distant-a
modern on-off switch equivalent of a nuclear bomb EMP blast.
Over recent years the Laverton district has had a history of strange
electrical events involving the burn-out of power station
generators, overvoltage blow-out of power lines, interference on
microwave telephone links, and radio receivers picking up powerful,
sparking current-flow interference at specific times.
It is quite possible that Hayakawa and Aum were actually
eavesdropping on someone else’s EM weapons tests in this area. If
so, the best source candidate is the "ex-US base" at the
Peninsula VLF/HF microwave transmitter site, located in northwestern Australia. This is where so many reported fireball flights appear to
have originated. However, other fireballs have been seen to fly
towards this facility (due to Tx-reversed Tesla wave polarity?). The
Banjawarn "fireballs" also appear to have been on course for
This Exmouth site also contains a large "mushroom farm" (HAARP
clone) aerial system-believed to be a prototype experimental
OTHR plasma weapon. Presumably this system has been carrying out
propagation tests for several years across the outback to target
sites located on Australian soil.
Hayakawa would still have needed to check for the Exmouth Tx
ground-infolded Tesla ray-wave, and ordinary EM hertzian wave,
signal strengths - in order to deduce which was the best sheep station
area to purchase for eavesdropping on these presumably US-controlled
tests. The Aum would probably still have wished to test the nuclear
dudding ideas by sampling the local uranium ores in an attempt to
study the effects of the local Tesla shield developments.
On a related note, there is evidence that in April 1993 the Japanese
Mitsui Corporation sent a field crew into Australia to study "ground
truth" geology obtained by their high-definition Earth Resources
Satellite. (The images produced by this system appear to be of very
high military-intelligence-resolution definition, rather than
standard Earth resource exploration resolution.)
This Japanese team recruited the services of an Australian
prospector to help them survive in the outback-and obtain stereo
aerial photography over the Exmouth Tx site.
This request was queried by Canberra, but they allowed the sale of
these photos when he notified Canberra that they were for oil
The prospector noted the Japanese team’s interest not only in
outback geology but in the Exmouth, Laverton,
Alice Springs (Pine
Gap) and Longreach OTHR Tx sites (planned or constructed).
It would appear that certain powers in Japan viewed these locations
as dangerous and in need of urgent covert intelligence-gathering.
They were most likely alerted to these OTHR systems by the Russian
This intelligence and spying scenario probably also explains the
many lone Japanese motorcyclists who, from 1990 to the present, have
been mapping the entire system of WA/NT outback bush tracks at
1:50,000 scale on Mitsui Corporation satellite imagery (searching
for other hidden US-Australian defense bases?).
Similar reasoning could explain the strange Japanese "desert
greening" research being conducted in the eastern Goldfields. Could
this work be a cover for field instrumentation emplacement across
the region for observing the Laverton OTHR EM weapon system and any
Exmouth Tx field emissions?
Remember Hayakawa’s research at Osaka
University in "Greening Technology", i.e., EM weapons?
US SURPRISE AT "GROUND ZERO" CALCULATIONS
The US Senate inquiry under Senator Sam Nunn sent my early 1995 Banjawarn fireball incident report to the Incorporated Research
Institutions for Seismology (IRIS). IRIS is charged with developing
US seismological methods and technology to search for violations of
the United Nations nuclear test-ban treaty using chains of
seismograph receivers located around the world.
IRIS has published a preliminary report by Gregory van der Vink et.
al., suggesting that although this Banjawarn incident in many ways
resembles a clandestine test scenario, it was not caused by an
explosion (nuclear or otherwise) or a normal quake, but was probably
due to a three-meter iron-nickel meteorite impact.
Van der Vink has been interviewed by (Australian)
ABC radio and
continues to propagate the meteorite impact theory in spite of the
lack of any impact crater discovery, the peculiar evidence from
eyewitnesses on the nature of the fireball flight and its associated
events (e.g., the large orange-red hemisphere structure), and the
evidence of multiple fireball flights along the same track at Banjawarn
- each occurring on different dates/times and demonstrating
very odd, sentient, meteorite behavior.
Continuing its research, IRIS established the best possible fix on
the 28 May 1993 earthquake epicenter. This brilliant work was
achieved by studying the seismic energy paths from recent mine
blasts at the newly developed Bronzewing gold-mine (located some 50
kilometers west of Banjawarn).
IRIS recomputed the Banjawarn quake epicenter using new algorithms
deduced from this mine-blast wave-path research, coupled with input
from the seismographic record data provided by the chain of AGSO
(Australian Geological Survey Organisation) receivers.
AGSO data has always shown that the 3.6-3.9 Richter-scale quake
epicenter was south of Banjawarn - but with wildly varying results
from three different calculations, due to a lack of knowledge of the
regional seismic wave propagation. Earlier Leonora-Laverton mine
blasts demonstrated errors of ±100 kilometers in standard AGSO
algorithms and calculations.
IRIS proudly sent me a map detailing the small rectangular area
that, with 95 per cent confidence, contained the Banjawarn 28 May ’93 quake
epicenter. It exactly coincided with the plan outline of
the Laverton-Jindalee Rx (receiver) site.
IRIS was presumably operating on a "need to know" basis within US
Government circles and was unaware of the existence of this Laverton
OTHR Rx site.
In fact, I supplied IRIS with most of its detailed topographic maps
of this area, and I had not included information about the Laverton-Jindalee Rx site as it seemed irrelevant at the time.
This OTHR system consists of a Tx site located east of
White Cliffs, and an Rx site west of Laverton, close to the southern
boundary of Banjawarn station.
About five per cent of eyewitnesses to the "Banjawarn Bang"
suggested that this Rx site area, where the fireball exploded into a
huge red flare, was "ground zero".
Most other eyewitnesses placed "ground zero" much further north, so
I discounted these few isolated reports, but I searched this
location in mid-1995 from the air and on the ground - just in case.
The reason for this discrepancy between 95 per cent of eyewitness
evidence of the explosion site and the quake epicenter calculation
remains unexplained at this time. (The five per cent of eyewitnesses
who saw an explosive flare at the Rx site were present that night
with the many other witnesses who observed the explosion well north
of that location.)
At the time of the 28 May ’93 "Banjawarn Bang", the location was
virgin bush and just a planned rectangle noted on the local Mines
Department maps - to warn prospectors that no mines could be allowed
in this area due to future OTHR developments.
In mid-1995 whilst flying an aerial search for the Banjawarn
"meteorite crater", I flew over this site and later visited it on
the ground. Bulldozer clearing of bush scrub was in progress over an
area of a few square kilometers.
Unfortunately for IRIS, there was no meteor impact structure there;
nor has one been found anywhere else within 300 kilometers of
Banjawarn. The bulldozers were not filling in a crater, either!
However, one is left with the strong impression that this site is a
very bad place to install an OTHR military system, possibly due to
rare and highly accurate "meteorite impacts", rapidly evolving
exotic "natural" Earth EM events, strangely coincident
(in a region where no quake has ever been recorded since detectors
were first set up in 1900), or other alien phenomena.
Or perhaps someone else knows that it is not just a radar system but
also a projective plasma weapon system, and this someone sent one of
his own EM weapon blasts to hit the target fair and square at 23.03
hours on 28 May 1993 with a warning: "I can take out your proposed
weapons asset whenever I like."
Perhaps this same someone is responsible for the 1,000+ major
fireball events known to have occurred in Australia over the last
four years (right up to 24 June 1997)-100 of these involving huge
aerial explosions of nuclear-bomb-force levels, and 10 of these
involving huge aerial explosions coincident with medium-power
3.6-4.0 Richter-scale earthquakes (equivalent to 1-2 kilotonnes of
Who, or what, is that "someone"?
Whatever the source or cause, it is now obvious that these events
pose a severe and rapidly evolving threat to human life and
property. It is only a matter of time before a modern "fly-by-wire"
electronics-controlled airliner is brought down by a ray-wave field
coupling with onboard electronics.
Ground or air-burst explosions or induced earthquakes obviously
threaten many "ground zero" deaths if any of these events occur
within a built-up area.
Unfortunately, it appears we have to wait for a fireball event to
destroy Canberra before any government action will occur. We
probably won’t have to wait too long!
Part 4 of "Bright Skies" will cover the physics of
(weapons), ’natural’ Earth fireball events last century, possible
recent EM weapon strikes, a 1997 Australian fireballs update, and
the secret oligarchic power wars evolving around us.
