UFO Factory



Matt calls this building a UFO Factory. It is actually a unique shearing shed.

" The Deeargee Wool Shed. It was built in 1869 to an octagonal design with a unique 3 tier roof with glass ventilators providing the perfect environment for shearing. It is the oldest and largest shed in Australia and is still in use today. It is a National Trust registered building."

HERE for the www that I found the info...

I took this pic 2 weeks ago. We have no sky for me to take a Sky Watch Friday photo, it has been wet and windy for most of the week.

Only 6 sleeps until our trip!!! NYC here we come!!! :)

Enjoy your weekend!

Thanks for sharing that. I'm fascinated by Australian culture. I think the whole scene is stunning. Happy SWF!

I think UFO factory fits it very well... it looks like something one would expect to find in Area 61 or Roswell :-)

A really nice shot..

Great shed, next time we're in the vicinity we'll have to take a look in. I really would like to see how it works and how many stands there are.
Nice shot, good sly and it does look UFO like or a ttomb of ancient times.
