UFOlogist reports frequent sightings

Dear Editor:

Since March, I've received approximately eight unidentified flying object (UFO) reports, four of which were the direct result of projector-type lights being reflected off the clouds at Sudbury Downs where the new casino is located.

But the remaining four involve some pretty interesting observations:

May 6: Three Sudburians watched as a white light moved from north to south then south to north before disappearing.

The sighting lasted 90 minutes. One of the witnesses and a friend had seen two previous sightings during late February-early March in the Ramsey Lake area.

April 22 and May 7: A large triangular pattern of three bright lights moving across the sky in a wide curve is seen on two separate nights by members of the same family, while they were stargazing with the aid of a telescope.

June 27: An acting fire chief and a friend returning from camp near Mattawa witnessed an unusual object moving above the treeline, described as triangular in shape with a curved or boomerang-shaped rear.

All they saw was the underside of it where there was an array of eight coloured lights, four of which formed a diamond-shaped pattern near the front.

The object was moving in a south-north direction and there was absolutely no sound coming from it. The sighting lasted between 10 and 15 seconds. It was around 10:20 p.m. that night.

July 20: A Dowling resident reported that, at around 10:20 p.m., he saw a blue light that exploded within seconds of being seen. Half a second later, a large, bright ball of light appeared from nowhere and hung there for a few seconds before vanishing.

On a more serious note, it has become more apparent to me that, despite having a large number of acquaintances who are UFO eyewitnesses themselves, there are still a lot of people who don't know who I am, or how long I've been dealing with this subject.

Because of this, they are reluctant to report their sightings, perhaps thinking that I'm just some delusional person who just appeared out of nowhere overnight, doesn't know what he's talking about, and won't believe what they are reporting as UFOs.

Many Sudburians are apparently not aware that, since 1991, I've been interviewed 28 times by both local and provincial media, including MCTV Today and TVO, and I've made an appearance on the Camilla Scott Show.

I might also remind them that, since 1974,
I've witnessed 16 sightings of my own.

Nor are they aware that my name has been mentioned in American publications more than once, both in print and on the Internet.

I've also been interviewed on Strange Days...Indeed!, a two-hour UFO program which airs every Sunday, between 9 and 11 p.m. via the Internet and shortwave radio, and is hosted by two of my colleagues in Toronto.

I might also remind them that, since 1974, I've witnessed 16 sightings of my own, so I'm not as skeptical as some people may have pegged me to be.

I have been given the opportunity to co-host a live half-hour program on UFOs, which airs evey second Friday, between 9:30 and 10 a.m., on CKLU.

I suppose that I'm partly (if not entirely) responsible for the public's apparent lack of awareness about me or my research. But that's about to change.

I plan to give many more lectures on the subject, presenting information about UFOs and Flying Saucers that the public isn't aware of.

The cases mentioned earlier were discussed at my lecture at the Sudbury Public Library yesterday.

For more information about my lecture or newspaper research, or if you wish to report a sighting, phone me at 670-2759 or e-mail me at ufoman@ican.net.
