Summer 1972

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada; Summer, 1972

Name: Ron Freund, M.D.

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.

I then saw a man-like figure decending from the sky about 40-60ft in length.It was illuminating and was part solid and part liquid in appeared to be fuzzy in view around the edges. It then went behind a house up the street.

The very moment I lost sight of it I was again in the living room of the house again My friend and his family then drove by again.Time stopped awhile I sighted this and then time repeated itself with the same events but minus the ufo.

In 1992 I saw a book and seen similar sightins in the usa about the same time as mine. I was shocked. The only difference was how time appeared to stop during my sighting and I ended up back in my house not knowing how I got there. I have never reported this other than to my wife.I was 6 yrs old and now I am 43

Toronto, Ontario, Canada; Summer 1972

Name: Robert Turner

Date: 1972

Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Message: It was a large sphere, it made a perfect circle but was definately not a disk, it was spherical – sort of clear or translucent, somewhat silvery, but not metalic looking. It just hovered beyond a neighbours house and was quite low in the sky.

I could relate it to the house and the trees. It was hard to estimate the size but in relation to the house and trees it may have been about 30 feet in diameter but hard to tell how far away it was. It was probably larger as it was probably a little further away that it appeared.

It was a clear summer day with just a few cirus clouds. There was a noticable breeze coming from the north as large branches on a row of tall poplar trees were be bending and leaning slightly to the south. Despite the breeze, the object just remained stationary. This lasted for a few minutes, I alerted some neighbours who ran out to the street and also witnessed the object.

They do not like to talk about it. A friend of mine ran to his house and came out with a small telescope, It had a tiny tripod so I set it up in the middle of the street and lay flat on my stomach and was able to focus on the object. As soon as I got it in focus it quickly retreated – against the wind. – There was no sound, it just got smaller and smaller until it disappeared. It was gone in just a few seconds.

From a large stationary object to nothing in just a few seconds. During my short close up look, I did notice 3 lights on the object, they were near the perimeter of the object and relativly even spaced. If you drew a line connecting the lights it would have made a triangular shape.

It bothers me that the others choose to dismiss the event as it was like nothing I had ever seen before or since. I’ve browzed a few books on the subject but have not come across any drawings or descriptions that match. I haven’t actually looked very hard, but now that I have internet I will begin searching.

In a conversation with a hockey teammate a few years ago we ended up on the topic of UFO’s and when I described what I had seen, suprizingly he had seen just what I described, it was around the same time frame, similar time of day and about ten miles from my sighting – He saw it out over lake Ontario by Toronto’s waterfront. He was driving east on the Gardiner Expressway at the time. He was looking East and a little South at the time.
