auto mechanic reported that he saw a very large object while
driving along Radar Road. He had two other men with him
in his pickup truck and they were heading back to the city.
All three witnesses were pretty shook up. He said that before
he had this sighting, he was a real skeptic. He also said
that there were a lot of other cars behind him, as well
as the oncoming traffic and they too, saw the object. He
later filled out a UFO report form and made sketches of
what he saw. It was a long, cylindrical object which he
estimated to be approximately 1000 feet long and about 40
feet in diameter, hovering over the power lines some 50
feet from the opposite side of the highway, and about 150
feet up in the air. His girlfriend said that he was as white
as a ghost when he got home for supper. The incident occurred
at about 6:30 - 7:00 p.m. that evening. After further investigation,
the actual size of the object turned out to be about 450

people ice-fishing on White Water Lake witnessed a white,
oblong object or light moving, then suddenly stop to finally
take off vertically. It was too high to be a helicopter
and no plane stops in mid-flight and hovers. I later spoke
to one of the witnesses and he told me that the sighting
occurred the day before the rockburst at Creighton Mine.
The night of the sighting, he got home around 11 p.m. and
told his parents he had seen a very rapid, circling light
up in the sky, which was brighter than a star. There were
two other boys with him who saw it also, but they didn't
think much of it at the time.
Friday, March 3, 1995.
Location: Beaver Lake, near Lively, Ontario.
called The Sudbury Star to tell a reporter friend of mine
about the recent sightings. In turn, he told me the following:
the day before (Thursday, March 2), he received an anonymous
call from someone claiming to have had a UFO sighting two
weeks earlier, over Ella Lake, near Beaver Lake, which is
located between Penage and Espanola. The witness looked
at an object with red and blue flashing lights, with his
binoculars. It was visible for approximately one half hour,
and then took off. This sighting occurred at 1 a.m.
Wednesday, March 8, 1995.
Location: Radar Road, near Skead, Ontario.
man called to report a sighting he had witnessed with his
wife and daughter, in late spring 1994. It occurred between
7 and 9 p.m. while he was driving on Radar Road, on the
other side of the radar base, near the airport turnoff.
They were followed by an object which he described as a
big ball of light about the size of a full moon. It would
sometimes follow them from behind; at times, it would fly
parallel to the car and would occasionally fly ahead of
the car, while dipping up and down below and above the tree-line.
Other drivers were stopped along the highway, and some were
standing outside their vehicles, looking at this object.
Thursday, March 23, 1995.
Location: Sudbury, Ontario.
received a call from MV, a guy I'd met at the Reference
Library the year before and who happened to be very skeptical
about UFOs, even after having seen the documentary UFOs
Are Real. He called to report that he had seen something
strange in broad daylight while walking downtown, at around
5:30 p.m. He immediately thought it was a weather balloon,
but after it suddenly disappeared, it was no longer visible
in the sky. He called the control tower at the airport and
they told him it probably was a balloon of some sort. But
we found out later that it couldn't have been a balloon
because it was too low in the sky (3500 feet), not 36,000
feet like it should've been.
that night, one of our UFO group members (J-P) had a sighting
while driving off Lasalle Blvd. onto Roy street. He looked
towards the west and saw a green-coloured object heading
down towards Frood Mine. It was like a glow-in-the-dark
green and it moved in a downward curve, from south to north.
few days following these sightings, I witnessed a dark green
military helicopter that flew over my house, heading towards
the airport. I called a colleague of mine and told him about
it. Having been an Air Cadet himself, he suggested that
I go to the airport and check it out. When I got there,
I was surprised to see a large C-130 Hercules transport
plane with Canadian markings that was parked in front of
the control tower. As I drove past the terminal, I noticed
that the helicopter was being refueled. As I drove down
the highway, I looked in my rear-view mirror and caught
a glimpse of it as it took off in a southerly direction.
have also been reports of F-18 Hornet jet fighters flying
around in this vicinity. I'm beginning to wonder why there
is so much military activity all of a sudden. The only military
installation in the area is the Falconbridge Radar Base,
and it's been closed since 1987. There is no logical explanation
why these aircrafts should be flying around here unless
they are keeping tabs on the UFOs that have been spotted
by numerous people, the past few weeks.
Wednesday, May 17, 1995.
Location: Gainford, Alberta.
received a daytime call from a friend of mine who told me
that two girlfriends of hers saw UFOs over Gainford, on
three separate occasions. The first sighting was of an object
seen 75 feet above a car driven by one of the ladies. The
second sighting was that of a bright oval-shaped object
with a green or blue light on one side and a red light on
the other, which was seen above some power lines. This took
place on two separate nights. On the second night, the witness
contacted another friend who confirmed the sighting. The
object was last seen departing from the power lines.

Location: New Sudbury Shopping Center.
friend of mine (MD) called me to report that on Thursday,
May 18, he and his girlfriend were at the midway. While
they were on one of the rides, she noticed a bright light,
low above the horizon. After looking at it for a while,
she said that it went out, all of a sudden. She never saw

Location: Ramsey Lake, Sudbury, Ontario.
was having a conversation with a man (MR) who told me that
about three weeks earlier, two friends of his were near
Lake Ramsey, looking up at the sky. They saw a cylindrical
object flying in a break in the clouds. There was absolutely
no sound and they estimated the object to be approximately
100 feet in diameter. They said it took off straight up
into outer space.
Wednesday, September 12, 1995.
Location: Richard Lake, Sudbury, Ontario.
received a call from a female resident (LH) who said that
for three nights in a row, she saw strange objects with
red and green lights, that were stationary in the wester
sky. She saw this from her residence near Richard Lake and
Pinegrove Golf Course. For the first night or so, there
was only one object. Then a second one appeared above or
below the first one, one slightly brighter than the other.
They would remain there for approximately 3 hours, at around
Wednesday, September 20, 1995.
Location: Lively, Ontario.
received a call from a real estate agent (LL) who told me
that she had driven out to Lively and saw an orange light
low in the sky, hovering between two trees. She looked down
to get something in the car, and when she looked up again,
the light was gone. Later, when she drove to Creighton,
she said she saw a fast-moving light that streaked across
the sky and made a complete stop over some trees, a great
distance away north of Creighton.
Creighton is the location of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory.
Thursday, November 23, 1995.
Location: Near Horseshoe Lake Road, Highway 69 South.
received a call from MD who said that he and his girlfriend
had witnessed a triangular-shaped object moving slowly from
a northeasterly direction heading towards the south. The
sighting occurred on Wednesday evening, between 6:55 and
7:00 p.m. At first, they could only see two lights moving
side by side. When they saw that the lights were heading
their way, the driver stopped on the side of the road, rolled
down his window, and looked up at the object as it passed
over the truck. His girlfriend did the same and noticed
that the object now had three lights, describing a triangle
floating below the cloud layer. The witnesses said it was
moving too slow to be a plane and the lights were not flashing;
they were on steady. I checked with the weather office and
I was told the clouds were at 10,000 feet - less than two
of witnesses withheld. For educational purposes only.
