Cosmic Phenomenon Seen at Timmins

TIMMINS - (CP) - Not to be outdone by the flights of fancy of flying saucer observers all over the world, a Timmins resident reported today he and his wife witnessed a strange cosmic phenomenon last night.

"We saw a ring in the sky, in the northern section at first," the resident said. "It was very clear and looked like a large smoke ring. It stayed together and appeared to be moving very fast. We could see it for a little more than five minutes. It held its circular shape until it disappeared."

NORTH BAY - (CP) - The necks of city residents craned skyward Sunday night, hoping for a recurrence of the mysterious blue lights reported over here, Friday night. Several persons reported seeing the light, and some said they were flying saucers.

Exploding Star Seen at Sudbury

SUDBURY - (CP) - A tale of an exploding star was told Saturday by C. Paquette of Sudbury, who works as a Canadian Pacific railway yardman of Cartier. He and two other workers in the Cartier yards saw the unusual sight at 2:04 a.m. Thursday.

"It was a slightly foggy night and we couldn't see the stars, but the moon was good and bright," Paquette said. "All of a sudden, there was a flash as bright as lightning that showed on the ground and then bright fragments flew out in all directions. It was just like a bursting sky-rocket."

To back up his story, Paquette has foreman Eddie Poirier and yardman Jack Blanchard, who were working in the Cartier yards at the time.

Green Fire-Ball Seen at Timmins

TIMMINS - (CP) - More than 50 persons today reported seeing an oval, greenish-white light speed southeasterly over the area shortly before midnight Friday night.

M. Woodley, airport mechanic at South Porcupine, said he was walking home from the show with his wife and two others when he saw "a bright clear green flame" about 20 feet long, leaving a trail of sparks for 25 to 50 feet. He estimated it was about 5,000 feet high and going about 1,000 miles an hour. It was visible for about a minute.

Gerald McDonald of Hollinger Mine was waiting for a bus at quitting time when he saw the round ball of light. It went over Timmins in a southeasterly direction and turned southward over Schumacher.

Lloyd St. Clement, a Timmins miner, said a group of 40 miners saw the phenomenon.

Flying Saucer Seen at Sudbury

SUDBURY - (CP) - Arthur Penny says he saw a flying saucer heading west over Sudbury about 3 p.m. Saturday.

"It looked like two pie-plates, one on top of the other," he told a reporter. "It was smooth and about the size of a small washtub."

Timmins "Raided" By Flying Saucers

TIMMINS - (CP) - Newspaper telephones buzzed Monday night as residents reported the third "raid" of flying saucers on the northern Ontario community since April 1.

Described as "the size of a house" and flying at about 700 feet, four Timmins residents reported the phenomena within an hour after it was seen at 9 p.m.

One of the witnesses said that the "saucer" first appeared on the sky alone, then darted away to return with another similar object.

Both appeared as blobs of light against the clouds. The "raid" lasted about 15 minutes.

April 7, scores of Timmins residents reported seeing a "ball of flame" which they thought was a saucer. About a week before that, four lumber workers saw what they said was a saucer flying in broad daylight north of the town.

NORTH BAY - (CP) - R.C.A.F. officials plan to investigate two reports of flying saucers in this area. The reports came from airmen stationed here.

WO. E. H. Rossell, a veteran airmen with 13 years in the service, and Flt. Sgt. Reg McRae, a visitor from Weston, said they spotted a "bright amber disk" in the sky over the airfield around 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

The two said the disk came from the southwest, moved across the airfield, stopped and then took off in the reverse direction. It climbed at an angle of 30 degrees at "terrific speed" and disappeared.

WO. W. J. Yeo, a master telecommunications superintendent, and Sgt. D. V. Crandell, an instrument technician, reported seeing a flying saucer the night of Jan. 1.

"The saucer appeared to be at great height, probably outside the earth=s hemisphere," they testified. "It appeared to be moving at supersonic speed."

The disk was described as reddish-orange in color, "similar to a rock burning."

An R.C.A.F. spokesman said yesterday there is no reason to doubt the validity of the reports since the men concerned are seasoned veterans familiar with convention aircraft.

"Bluish Flashes" Replace Espanola Flying Saucers

ESPANOLA - In the past several days, Espanola has experienced all sorts of odd weather - heavy winds, zero temperatures, rain and sleet, and the usual seasonal kick-ups.

Several Espanolians witnessed "bluish flashes" in the sky, Wednesday and Thursday nights.

The strange phenomenon could not be explained by the eyewitnesses.

One man reported what he saw occurred during a heavy snowfall.

He thought, at first, it might have been lightning, but there was not any sign of a storm other than snow falling. There was no repetition of the flash.

It was just about this time, last year, that a rainbow of colors was seen to flash across the sky. Only one woman reported seeing the oddity in town.

However, two men travelling by truck to Sudbury, saw the same object about the same time while travelling, and the lights spread the same rainbow colors ahead of the truck for considerable distance, before the sight finally vanished.

At that time, the driver of the truck said he travelled 80 miles an hour to keep up with the rainbow.

Flying saucers seemingly are now being replaced by rainbows at night in midwinter, and lightning without thunder.

The old sages shake their heads at all this crazy weather nonsense, and pray for the return of winters at 40 below and summers in the 80's.

Report Seeing Flying Saucer Near Timmins

TIMMINS (CP) - Appearance of a "flying saucer," similar in description to an object reported at North Bay Tuesday, was reported Monday night over the hydro-electric plant at Wawaitin Falls, 30 miles southeast of Timmins on the Mattagami river.

Claims Plane Scouted Object Like Saucer

NORTH BAY (CP) - A nearby West Ferris business man said he saw an RCAF plane make a scouting flight around a mysterious flying object, early Sunday.

Harold Pirie said he saw the object, emitting a white light much too bright to be a star, at about 2 a.m. Then, the plane came from the direction of the North Bay Air Base with its running lights flashing, made a complete circle around the stationary object, and headed back to its base.

Mr. Pirie said the object later sped off to the south, with a tremendous red exhaust, and disappeared.

Last week, three workmen at the RCAF Base said they watched a flying saucer hovering over the base for more than 10 minutes. A few nights later, six Hydro workers at Wawaitin falls, about 245 miles north of here, said they saw a saucer hovering above the forest for several minutes.

Mystery Object Sighted Cruising in Wawa Skies
Sault Star Bureau

JAMESTOWN (Wawa) - Several reports were received Tuesday morning of a strange object flying over this district.

First report came from a train crew in Hawk Junction, who said they spotted the object on their way from Hearst at about 6:30 a.m.

Later, several citizens reported a strange object travelling east over the town at about that same time.

All were most emphatic in denying that it could have been a plane. A silver ball, about three feet in diameter with a tail of about six feet was the general description given by all of them.

The train crew said there appeared to be fire or sparks coming from the front of the machine, but a local man expressed the opinion that this was the result of the moon, which was still shining, glinting on the silvery surface.

Several of the Wawa people who reported it were waiting for a bus to take them to work and said they had a good view of the object.

Apparently travelling very fast, the sphere gave the impression of being quite low when it went over Wawa but made no noise.

Alf Peat, a well-known resident and former head of the Northern Telephone office here, said he was seated at his window watching for the bus and the object gave the impression of passing right over the house. However, he said, the time of the morning and the lack of noise made it very difficult to say how high it was.

According to one observer, if these were visitors from outer space, we need never fear an invasion. Said he, "Anyone who got a good look at all this snow we've got here, would certainly never come back."

SAULT STE. MARIE - Officials at the United States Weather Bureau in the Michigan Sault, said the object could have been a weather balloon.

A spokesman said balloons are sent out from bases in the United States across various routes in Ontario. The Canadian Meteorological Service also sends out weather balloons.

He said the balloon would appear silvery when struck by sunlight. It would glide noiselessly in the wind.

The balloons radio back information including the temperature and moisture of air through which they pass, wind direction and wind velocity. Many are recovered.

Photos Taken Here
Weird Picture Sequence Revives Interest of Flying Saucer Ideas

I had a phone call from a woman a few weeks ago who said she had some pictures of a flying saucer, and would I like to come and see them.

Oh well, I thought. I may as well not say anything to upset her. Just be agreeable.

So we agreed that I would phone her when things were not too pressing and I would set a time to see her pictures of flying saucers.

A few days went by, and the thought kept recurring about those pictures. So many people have made so many claims in so many parts of North America about these things.

Most of them have been explained as natural occurrences, and the reason others have not been explained is that they are considered to be the result of someone's imagination or else incorrectly described.

Here is a list of some things people have seen and thought were flying saucers: newspapers carried aloft by a strong wind, airplane lights, a searchlight beam against the sky, weather balloons, crystals of ice in the sky refracting sunbeams or moonbeams, sudden small formations of vapor into cloud carried by the upper winds at high speed. Some people have even reported bright stars and planets as looking menacing.

And there are photos of "saucers" which have proved to be a reflection in the camera lens itself, producing a white blur on the film. Planes themselves will sometimes drop a bundle of flakey aluminum foil to obscure radar observation. It can produce the effect of a round silvery object.

But curiosity has a quiet, nagging tone to it and finally to get rid of it, I phoned the woman and said I could get over that evening.

I was agreeably surprised to find that she had a movie projector set up. So it was to be flying saucer in motion?

Yes, she said, it was.

Then she told me the history of the pictures.

It was last summer, June of 1960, and there were six jets flying in formation. They came across the sky flying from north to south, and leaving a pattern of white contrails in their wake against the blue sky.

This woman liked their appearance and ran into the house to get her movie camera.

When she came out again, she noticed a small silvery object to the north that moved swiftly toward the south.

"It was moving about ten times faster than the jets," she said. "Then it passed them and just seemed to disappear."

"Just about then, there was a noise like a plane breaking the sound barrier."

(Later that day, the local radio carried a story about the shock wave and said that Kincheloe U.S. Air Force Base denied it had been caused by their planes, although they admitted these were their planes in the air that day. An officer at Kincheloe also recently verified that statement.)

This woman then thought no more about the "silvery" object or the shock wave, and proceeded to photograph the white contrails in the sky.

She sent the film away and in due course, it was sent back and she ran off the film in her projector.

"I didn't know the proper authorities to take it to," she said, "but there is this flying saucer club in town and I told them about it."

"They told me not to tell anyone else and that they'd take care of it."

It seems the local club members took the film on tour through southern Ontario, showing it to other saucer fan clubs. But she said they didn't seem to have done anything about seeing any responsible officials.

"I thought they'd had it long enough and that maybe somebody at your paper would know the right people who should know about it."

I couldn't stand the suspense much longer so I asked her to show it to me.

On flashed the projector and the film began to feed through.

There were some visitors climbing out of a car and smiling. A saucy young teen-ager with honeyblonde hair stepped heavingly onto the scene. Then a fat dog came stumping along on arthritic joints. More pictures of visiting relatives.

Then bang, and you're looking up into a deep blue sky with contrail plumes draped across it in a criss-cross pattern. You wait and there are more trails and more blue sky.

Then hardly before you know it, it's flashed into the screen with rays dancing all over the place, turned, and gone again.

Time: about one and one-half seconds.

I don't believe in flying saucers, so I said, "Hmm. Can we see that again."

The film went into reverse, then forward.

There's the blonde, the dog, the visitors, and then the blue sky with jet trails. Again the flash, the swoop, and gone.

"Hmm. Would you mind very much if we saw it again?"

She complied, and said "I guess you'd like to see it again."

I said I would, if she didn't mind.

We must have run that through twenty-five times. I think I'd know those visitors and that dog anywhere.

It has moved to about a third of the way across the screen by this time. Then it scoots back toward the upper left of the screen, so that its "side" view is seen, and the rays are again visible.

The rays, it would seem (that is if the thing really were an object that worked) might be almost pushing the "saucer" along on its way.

Well, what do you do when you get hold of a flying saucer?

I called the chap who had formerly been the RCAF spotter in town. He said, after being shown some stills made from the movie film, that they certainly were clearer than anything he had seen, and the object (or whatever it was) had a far more definite outline than other pictures he had seen.

But, he said, the RCAF had just about officially declared flying saucers as non-existent so there was no use trying to get through to them on this business.

I enquired of an international weekly magazine if they were interested in the report. They answered: "Sorry, but I guess we just don't believe in flying saucers much."

So I phoned Kincheloe Air Force Base in Michigan and told the whole thing to one of the public relations officers.

He was also a skeptic, I am glad to say, but admitted it might be worth following up, if nothing else but to find out what caused this phenomenon.

So a full-dress meeting was arranged. The patient woman brought her film, and her projector over to Kincheloe, along with her husband.

They were met by the base commander, a representative from the Pentagon, and other top-brass on the base.

After the film had been shown, and then rerun, and rerun again, and again, the military was in a state of some excitement.

Even the most confirmed skeptic among the officers shook his head wonderingly and said, "I just don't know."

The film has been shipped off to Washington. The heroine of this tale was told to keep on the alert because they might want her at any time to go to Washington for questioning. That is, if the Canadian government doesn't step in first.

I've seen it, and it looks like what so many people would like to believe it really is.

But I still don't believe it. The only thing is, I get into these arguments with myself and ask, "Okay, then, what is it?"

Still No Proof
Algoma UFOs Not New
Film Showed One in '61

Eerie lights reported seen over Sault Ste. Marie, Tuesday, were not the first unidentified flying objects to appear over Algoma.

Nor were the Tuesday sightings among the most sensational reports.

That honor goes to a housewife in Hamilton Heights subdivision, in early 1961. She backed up her claim with a strip of 8 mm. movie film showing a silvery object zipping through the air.

The 12-second sequence was sent to Washington for study, and later returned to the woman by a Kincheloe USAF base officer.

The housewife recalled, Wednesday, that the officer told her Air Force officials believed it "might" have been a reflection or something on the lens.

"But," the housewife said, "he told me that no matter what they found, they would never reveal it to us because they could not afford to make anything like that public because it could cause mass panic."

The accompanying picture, taken from the 8 mm. film, shows the object against the sky with a vapor trail from a passing aircraft behind. The different positions of the object indicates its motion. Note the "rays" that appear to stream down from it.

The housewife said she had never seen anything like the object before, and has never seen anything like it since. "But I've always been certain it was something unusual."

Even more sensational, but with no proof, was a report last summer that two children and several adults saw a small round "object" land in a yard at Hilton Beach on St. Joseph Island.

The report said that two young children "spotted" the object and called neighbors. The alleged object was then reported to have lifted off and shot out of sight.

Lights, similar to that reported over the Sault, Tuesday, were supposed to have been seen for weeks, high above Gawas Bay, also on St. Joseph Island, last summer.

Reliable persons described seeing red and green and white glowing lights soaring over the area at high speeds, at intervals of from one to two hours. These sightings, apparently never reported to authorities, were alleged to have been regularly seen for several weeks.

Then there was the case of a mystery object over the Wawa area, back in 1959. A railway train crew at Hawk Junction, and at least one prominent Wawa resident, separately told of seeing a small silver ball flying swiftly overhead.

Later, an official at the U.S. Weather Bureau said the object was likely a weather balloon that had gotten away. "It would appear silvery when struck by sunlight," he said.

But the people in the Wawa area said they saw it at night.

WAWA - High school students, teachers, Algoma Ore Properties office employees and many other residents of this northern mining town were sky gazing Thursday morning.

An unidentified flying object hovered over Wawa Lake for about an hour. Police Chief Louis Berger said he saw it. Fire Chief Howard West described it as pale blue in appearance.

"It wasn't yellow like a star and it was much brighter," said Mr. West.

Most people think it was a weather balloon but it attracted a great deal of attention at 9 a.m.

Family At Blind River Describe UFO Sightings
Sault Star Bureau

BLIND RIVER - "I saw something, I don't know what it was, but I do know I saw it," Art Christmas said in summing up an UFO sighting early Thursday morning.

"It was there in the sky. I saw it too, but I don't believe it was beings from another planet. There has to be some other explanation" Mrs. Christmas told the Star.

Mrs. Christmas who was first to witness the phenomena said she wakened about 5 a.m. and saw what appeared to be a light in the dressing table mirror.

It puzzled her as the bedroom is located at the rear of the house and beyond their backyard, it's all bush, she said. Then realizing whatever it was, it had to be reflected through the window, she wakened her husband.

Taking up the story of their experience, Mr. Christmas stated, "When Connie awakened me, I guess I was still groggy with sleep and wondered why I was wakened to look at some silly light in a mirror; but woke up fast when I thought . . . there shouldn't be any such reflection, hopped out of bed, went to the window, and sure enough, there was this big light in the southeastern sky."

To prove they weren't "seeing things," he said he watched out the window while his wife continued viewing the mirror reflection. They took turns explaining to the other exactly what the light was doing to verify they were seeing the same thing, simultaneously.

Describing the object, they said it was a clear, steady light, about 14 inches in diameter at its largest and would diminish to about the size of the star Venus. It was approximately 45 degrees above the horizon, but they had no way of estimating its distance.

The light appeared to advance toward them and then recede. Each time the closest was located slightly northward as aligned with the crossbar in the window pane.

Like many other witnesses, the Christmas' admitted, while not afraid, they had the uncanny feeling as though they were being observed, even as they were watching whatever it was up there in the sky.

"I think any government, air force, scientist or official agency that has positive proof as to what these UFO's are, should release it immediately. Connie and I KNOW we saw something and I strongly feel if such knowledge is available, the public has the right to know." Mr. Christmas emphasized in deploring the present "hush-hush" concerning the phenomena.

It was the young couples' second UFO sighting. About two years ago, while residing in Sault Ste. Marie, they had watched as "something" traversed the sky, for several minutes.

Horses Go on Rampage too
Men Frightened by Mysterious Orange Light
Sault Star Correspondent

DAYTON - The topic of Unidentified Flying Objects is an intriguing and interesting one - whether or not you will admit you believe there are such things. Certainly we are hearing of more and more strange sightings - and from people we have always considered to be quite sensible.

Two incidents in nearby communities last week have stirred up some controversy.

Terry Goodmurphy, of North Livingstone, age 20 and his companion Steven Grexton, 19, are still excited about their weird experience. At around 9:30 one evening, they were driving in a westerly direction on Highway 17 East when they saw an orange glow in the sky as they were coming over the Maple Ridge hill. At first, they thought it to be a fire. When they noticed that it appeared to be moving, they stopped at Brownlee Road and watched for a short time. They decided to go a little further on down the highway. After travelling approximately three quarters of a mile, they again stopped "as the object was taking definite shape."

"We were near Leonard Trivers' field and there was no traffic then on the highway. The "thing" was about 100 feet in diameter, judging by the distance it was from us," Terry related. "It went down towards the highway, stopped for a while, then came straight up and began travelling towards us. It appeared to be 100 feet up."

Just about that time, the boys' hair began to stand up on end. In fact, they became so frightened that they backed the car down the highway.

"Let's hear your version of this story, Steven. You must have been doing the looking while Terry was doing the driving," the driver said.

"We both were looking - and we were both plenty scared" was the reply in unison.

The boys turned the car around at the Maple Ridge Store (which was closed) and headed east to a nearby restaurant. They were out of range of Maple Ridge by this time and the large orange-red half-moon shape could no longer be seen.

They notified the Ontario Provincial Police detachment at Thessalon but when the policeman came to Maple Ridge with a searchlight, there was no sign of the mysterious U.F.O. A smell of sulphur was said to be in the air.

The story sparked others who had seen unusual objects in the sky in the same area during the past three weeks (and even as early as last August) to come forth and say, "We hated to say anything about this before - because people think you've lost your marbles if you dare mention flying saucers of the like."

The other incident has given rise to speculation that the sighting of the glowing orange-red object seen by the two boys may be the indirect cause of the death of a standard-bred mare at the Lorne Wolgemuth farm at Sowerby.

The mare "Susie" was with another favorite riding horse "Fury" in the pasture field that evening. A low electric fence had kept the horses in their place all summer. When Fury came to the barn in the morning, a long cut was noticed on his neck. Susie was not to be seen. Her owners began searching and a few hours later, she was found lying dead with her throat and jugular vein cut. The electric fence was trailing on the ground and the wire broken about 100 feet away.

Trying to picture what had happened to frighten the horses so badly, the "eerie, moving, glowing object in the sky" seemed a plausible answer. Horses are genuinely fearful of fire - that is a well-known fact. If the object looked like a fireball to humans, doubtless it would appear the same to an animal. That same evening, a horse owned by R. Boyer in Thessalon "went wild."

As to the other stories - most spoke of objects with red, green or blue flashing lights travelling in an erratic manner "not like airplanes" - zooming up and down, back and forth, across the sky. Some were single sightings; others observed two and even three in the sky at once.

Do UFOs really exist? Where do they come from? Are they top-secret? These are questions being asked by those who are looking to scientists to provide the answers. On the other side are those who are saying "Show me! I'm from Missouri."

SAUCER OR HOAX - A group of Laurentian University students at Sudbury claim to have photographed a flying saucer. Examining the photo of the alleged UFO are Larry Coutts, Jim Calarco and Jim Lockett. Rumors throughout the university campus today seem to indicate it was all a hoax despite some vigorous denials. (CP Wirephoto)

Laurentian Students Spot Strange Light

SUDBURY (CP) - A disc-shaped white light was seen and photographed near Laurentian University, five students claimed Wednesday.

Jim Lockett; photo editor for the university year book, said he and four other students were setting up a camera Tuesday night for night pictures of the university for the student yearbook when the strange light appeared.

The other students, Jim Calarco, Larry Coutts, Stan Wallace and Dick Cybulski, verified Lockett=s story.

They were on the golf course adjoining the campus at about 7:15 p.m. when Calarco saw the light coming slowly from the west.

The boys said the object seemed to hover over Nepahwin Lake to the west of their position for about four minutes. Lockett said he had time to snap a dozen pictures.

"Then it went away quick," said Calarco. "It just got smaller and smaller."

The students said they "didn't hear a thing," describing the object as "just a white diffuse light disc-shaped and tapered at the top."

A spokesman at the Falconbridge radar station was asked if anything appeared on the radar screen at this time. He said it is a service policy not to give information on such sightings.

Fishermen report UFO at Timmins

TIMMINS, Ont. (CP) - Four Timmins residents reported seeing an unidentified flying object while on an ice-fishing trip to Scorch Lake, Ont., Sunday.

Terry McCormick, Leonard Simon, Ken MacNair and Con Pelletier said they saw a bright object in the sky, about three times the size of a star, travelling from west to east. They said it vanished after about one-and-a-half minutes.

Scorch Lake is 60 miles west of Timmins.

UFO sighted in North Bay

NORTH BAY, Ont. (CP) - An unexplained bright white light which has been sighted several times in the area during recent weeks was active again Thursday night, provincial police say. Police said they received reports late Thursday that an unidentified flying object was sighted over Lake Nipissing. Police, responding to the calls, said they saw the bright white light hovering over Iron Island about 20 miles west of the North Bay government dock. It remained stationary for about three hours, then disappeared.
