could be better than to be visiting Canada, a beautiful
lake, night air, moonlit water? What a peaceful, relaxing
idea that is. Unfortunately for two people, all of these
nice things turned into a frightening experience, and
changed their lives forever. From the notes of researcher
Dr. Peter Millman comes this true story. At the time of
this story, Millman was working for the Nation Research
Council of Canada. He received the facts of the case from
the Department of National Defense.
two people, who gave their report to Canadian officials,
have asked to remain anonymous, for fear of ridicule.
It was on June 18, 1967 that their case begins. Taking
a nice, peaceful boat right down a northern Ontario lake,
Mr. and Mrs. G. were visiting friends, and began their
ride back to their cabin. As they are enjoying the moonlit
night, they were suddenly shocked to see a brilliant object
of unknown origin. This object was simply hovering about
50 feet above tree level, and approximately one-quarter
of a mile away from them. Slowing their boat down, they
make a turn to get a full view of this strange object.
As they sit in wonder, suddenly the object begins to pick
up speed, racing straight toward them! Regaining his composure,
Mr. G revs up his 75 horsepower motor, and gives it all
it's got, heading to the lake's shore.
distance between themselves and the object allows them
just enough time to arrive on the bank. They quickly exit
the boat. Looking back up into the sky, they see the object
has taken back its original position. After a few minutes
of time, Mr. and Mrs. G decide to try a return trip back
down the river to their neighbors' house. Shortly after
launching into the water, the object again makes a move
to descend upon the two terrified witnesses. Again outracing
the craft to the shore, the two ditch the boat, and run
to another house, loudly and excitedly rousing their acquaintances.
Their friends would later state that Mr. and Mrs. G were
honestly and profoundly frightened to death by what they
there were several more witnesses to this unusual, brilliant
object...just hovering above the trees that surrounded
the quiet waters of the lake. They watch the object for
another 10-15 minutes until finally, it races into the
night to the west-northwest. Knowing that they had seen
something quite extraordinary, they make a full report
of the incident. This unusual occurrence was meticulously
detailed by Canada's National Defense team. Other details
derived from a thorough questioning of the witnesses revealed
several important facts. The object, though it did not
show a light of any kind, caused the trees to move below
it, as it hovered. The craft was distinguishable from
the moon, as both objects could be clearly seen simultaneously.
The object was a traditional oval shape with a dome on
top, estimated at 25-30 feet across, and 10-15 feet tall.
the object rapidly streaked through the sky, no sound
was heard by the witnesses, nor other guests at cabins
in the vicinity. One guest did observe that at about the
time of the incident, he was listening to his radio, when
it suddenly went dead. Later in the evening, it was working
fine again. The investigative team discovered a number
of broken, wilted limbs directly below where the object
had hovered. An analysis was made in Winnipeg, and the
results of that examination was that no reasonable explanation
could be offered for the damage to the tree limbs. The
report also stated that the limbs showed signs of heat,
and the samples contained no diseases or insect infestation.
This is a classic case of an encounter of the second kind.
This case was very well documented, and the object was
listed as unexplained.
