Date of Event: summer, 1972 or 1973
Location of Event: Ottawa, Canada
Message: A friend of mine and I went to Ottawa for a weekend of looking for Canadian girls. We ended up without any the first night, sleeping in my car on the side of the road. A Canadian trooper woke us up at 4 AM to check us out, then left. We sat in the car, eating some bread we had when we saw it. The terrain was flat with a distant mountain range. A slowly moving disc-shaped object was coming across a large field toward us.
It stopped and hovered around fifty feet above the highway and two hundred feet in front. The thing was probably 75 to 100 feet across, with moving lights around the perimeter, completely soundless. If only my camera had been along. It stayed in place for 5 to 10 minutes, then gradually moved away, diagonally upward toward the mountain range, then rapidly sped away and, when it was just a light in the sky, made a sharp 90 degree turn to the left and sped out of sight, completely soundless.
We just sat there, speechless the whole time. Later that morning around 6 AM when the radio stations began broadcasting, they were reporting hundreds of sightings down the whole Eastern seaboard from Canada down through Maine and New England. The official Air Force explanation reported later that day was “luminous gas from a factory”. I know what we saw that morning, and there is no doubt in my mind regarding these other reported sightings.
