1999 Sighting Reports

Date: Monday, February 22, 1999.
Location: Between Elliot Lake and Blind River, Ontario.

JM was heading west towards Blind River when she spotted a bright, ball-shaped light in the sky. It suddenly blinked out and disappeared.

Date: Friday, February 26, 1999.
Location: Blind River, Ontario.

JM reported to me that on Friday night or early Saturday morning, at about 12:00 midnight, she and her daughter saw a pulsating red light some distance away. She was driving back to her home in Blind River, and in front of them in another car, was their neighbour, a carpenter. He apparently had a better view of the whole incident, and he later told her what he saw. He was also driving home, and as he got closer to Blind River, he noticed a red light. He thought maybe that it was a signal light or something. But when he got about 30 or 40 feet from some railroad tracks, he slammed the brakes. He watched as a red pulsating light hovered above the tracks, at an approximated height of five or six feet. The light then suddenly moved, heading into the woods. The man stepped on the gas and took off. When he later told JM what he had seen, he said he wasn't going to say anything about it. He estimated that the red light was about 30 inches in diameter, at a distance of 30 feet or so. That's how close he was to it.

One interesting bit of information that should be mentioned is the fact that the Eldorado Nuclear Plant is located a few miles away, to the south. It is a well-known fact that UFOs are often seen in close proximity to Nuclear Plants. We now have a possible explanation why there would be so many sightings in the Blind River area.

Location: Blind River, Ontario.

At about 2:00 a.m., JM woke up to go to the washroom. As she entered the bathroom, she heard a low hum, similar to an electrical sound, which she thought was coming from the fridge's motor. But when she walked out of the bathroom, she realized that the hum was coming from outside and was much louder. She put on her coat and ski-doo boots and went outside, just in time to see a large cigar-shaped object as it flew over her house from west to east. It consisted of a long solid light in the front, followed by a short light in the back, like an horizontal exclamation mark.

She observed it for about 10 - 15 seconds, then ran into the house to get her binoculars. When she came back out, the object was further away to the east, and the humming sound was fading. The witness said that the object was lower than a jet, but as high as a small plane. The sighting was over by 2:05 a.m. She said that if she hadn't woken up to go to the washroom, she would have missed the whole thing. She wanted to contact me at that time, but waited until 10:30 that morning, to talk to me.

The following reports were phoned in to me after my letter to the editor appeared in the Friday, March 19 issue of The Northern Life.

Date: Saturday, March 13, 1999 (reported on March 19, 1999).
Location: Garson, Ontario.

At around 1:05 a.m., a 63-year-old man (AP) saw a big round object move across the sky in a northwesterly direction. He said it blinked 4 times before disappearing and described it as being lime-green in colour, oval-shaped and as large as a garbage can cover held at a distance of 15 feet.

He mentioned that he used to reside in the town of Falconbridge where he and his neighbours had had several sightings, years ago.

Date: Wednesday, March 10, 1999 (reported on March 19, 1999).
Location: 10 minutes from Elliot Lake, Ontario.

At around 3:40 p.m., a man driving on highway 108 toward highway 17, reported that he saw a cone-shaped object moving across the sky from west to east. The front end of it was squared off. There was no vapour trail behind it and it was as white as a cloud. He watched it for a minute, lost sight of it, then saw it again for 3 more minutes before disappearing from view.

Date: Friday, March 12, 1999.
Location: Sudbury, Ontario.

A little after 10 p.m. that evening, a boy (JG) was trying to go to sleep when he looked out his window and saw a triangular object in the night sky. It had three coloured lights; one at each corner. One light was red and the other two were white. He also noticed a fourth light in the center of the craft; a smaller red light which was moving around in a circular motion. He said that the triangular craft was about as big as an aspirin held at arm's length. Then, after a second or 2, it flashed again. It kept doing this until it was out of site. At about the half way point, it stopped for about 30 seconds then went on again. The witness said it was too high to be a plane and jets can't stop and go like it did. It stopped again way off in the east and sped up and went south.

Date: Monday, March 15, 1999 (reported to me on March 20, 1999).
Location: 20 kilometres north of Elliot Lake, Ontario.

At around 3 p.m., SM saw what appeared to be a glare moving across the sky while out ice fishing on Dunlop Lake, near Elliot Lake. The witness who reported this incident said the object was a lot bigger than a plane and described it as 'a silver bullet-type thing.' He said it flew above the trees about 32 to 4 miles away, and then just disappeared. Both the top and lower halves were reflecting sunlight, he said, but the middle section was blurry.

Date: Monday, March 15 or Tuesday, March 16, 1999 (reported on March 20, 1999).
Location: Hanmer, Ontario.

At around 9 a.m., a Hanmer man driving on Regional road 80 near the Skead-Sudbury Airport turnoff, reported seeing a round silver ball very high in the eastern sky. The weather was clear, and there were no clouds, which made it difficult for him to estimate its height. It caught his attention when it suddenly moved to the south, then disappeared. A few seconds later, it reappeared and started moving to the north before vanishing again.

Date: Saturday, March 20, 1999.
Location: Elliot Lake, Ontario.

A man called to report a possible meteorite impact near Echo Bay, between Blind River and Sault Ste. Marie. JM related to me the account printed in the newspaper which says that attempts will be made to search the area once the ice has melted off the surface of the lake.

Date: Saturday, March 20, 1999 (reported on March 21, 1999).
Location: East of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

At around 3 a.m., two women driving back from Sault, Michigan saw what first looked like a bright star in the sky that suddenly came down at tremendous speed and flew past their car. The witness reporting the incident was in the passenger seat and said that as the large ball of light flew past the car, sparks were shooting off from end to end. She looked back through the rear window of the car to see the object as it stopped and hovered above the road. She wanted to go back, but she said that the driver of the car didn't want to stop because she was afraid she'd get abducted.

Date: August 1995 (reported on Monday, March 22, 1999).
Location: Sudbury, Ontario.

While walking through a playground near Ethelbert Street, a man (DG) and his buddy saw a football-shaped object hovering above the Pine Street Water Tower. The colour was described as being grey-bluish, but more grey, which blended well with the sky. The sighting occurred on a clear, hot day. Based on his estimate of the size of the object, the witness said that if it had been on the ground, it would have been large enough for people to walk inside.

Date: Wednesday, March 24, 1999 (reported on April 16, 1999).
Location: Blind River, Ontario.

I received a call from my contact in Blind River and she reported to me the following incident:

A woman from Algoma Mills (7 miles from Blind River) had a close encounter while driving towards Blind River, where she was going to pick up her daughter at the local Tim Horton's. The time was approximately 11:20 p.m. When she got within 2 mile from Blind River, she saw an object lifting off from behind some trees at an RV trailer lot, near the shores of Lake Huron. She described it as cigar-shaped and red and white in colour. When she saw it lift up above the tree-line, she pulled right over so that she could get out and watch. But when the object started coming over the highway, she decided to stay in the car. The object was 'as long as one tree-line to the other' (wider than the highway). She sat there and watched as it came right over her car which, at that point, began to vibrate. That's when she hit the gas, she said, because 'she just wanted to get out of there.' At that moment, that's when it (the object) took off in a split second. It went right over the hospital and flew away in a northerly direction. A woman who had reported other encounters before, went to check the site and found no physical trace of any kind.

Two nights prior, on Monday, March 22, in the early hours of the morning, she said she woke up and heard a loud hum in her house. She went running to her daughter's room, woke her up, and both were in a panic state. She said she kind of knew what it was, but didn't want to go outside and look. Then the hum went away.

Date: Thursday, April 15, 1999.
Location: Ironbridge, Ontario.

Two women going for a walk at about 10:00 p.m., reported they saw a bright, bright light in the bush and they didn't want to stay any longer. They got scared because it was 'too...too bright for a normal light.' They just took off out of there.

Ironbridge is located 12 miles west of Blind River.

Date: Saturday, April 17, 1999.
Location: Garson, Ontario.

Dowling resident (VH) and his wife were driving back from Garson when they spotted an object in the sky, moving in a north-northeasterly direction. The time was approximately 9 p.m. and the sky was a bit cloudy. At first, the woman thought it was the moon. But at the time, the moon was in the southern sky and had a thin crescent shape. The object was described as a last-quarter moon with the tips squared off, and yellow in colour. It was seen for about 12 - 30 seconds before it moved away from them.

Date: Tuesday, April 13, 1999 (E-mail received on April 23, 1999).
Location: Val Caron, Ontario.

On the evening of April 13th, a Sudbury resident (HW) who works for a maintenance company and a fellow worker saw a strange sight while on their way to Hanmer. The time was approximately 9:45 p.m. when they approached the top of the hill in Val Caron from which there is an excellent view of the valley. At that moment, they saw a blue, ball-shaped light with a flaming tail on it moving across the sky. At first, they thought it was a meteor, but the fire tail suddenly went out and the object flashed brightly three times before disappearing. The witness said that the 'object was going too fast to be a plane, and yet too slow to be a meteor or shooting star.' He also said that it left a trail of smoke behind, which meant that it was in the atmosphere. He said: 'It was very close to the ground, maybe a couple of hundred feet up. Three cars in front of us seen it also and slammed on the breaks.' They reported their sighting to the airport and a local radio station, but they hadn't seen or heard anything about it.

Date: Monday, June 8, 1998 (E-mail received on April 25, 1999).
Location: Approx. 50 miles north of Chapleau, Ontario.

Two men who went on a five-day fishing trip, witnessed two separate sightings while camping on the Missinabbi River. On the evening of June 8, at around 10 p.m., they saw what looked like a star in the southeastern sky. They watched as it came straight down and stopped for about 5 seconds, then took off at a 90 angle from the direction it came from, at a terrific speed. It was faster than a plane and was heading in an easterly direction. It was gone from sight within a couple of seconds.

Then, at approximately 10:20 p.m. that same night, they saw two lights moving in the northwestern sky, which looked like car headlights, 100 feet apart from each other. They were about a thousand feet up and traveled in a straight line towards the southern horizon. Their speed was the same as a bush plane. In both cases, there was no sound at all.

Date: Tuesday, April 13, 1999 (E-mail received on April 26, 1999).
Location: Sudbury, Ontario.

At around 5:50 a.m., a Sudbury resident (SD) was driving her husband (David) to work when she saw a fluorescent green object in the western sky which moved with great speed (about 1 - 2 seconds). At first, she thought it could have been a comet; it was round-shaped at the head with a short vapour trail. It was half the size of the moon and was traveling west to north, in the area of the sky above Memorial Hospital. She said 'it happened so quickly, but was so impressive.'

Date: February or March, 1994 (E-mail received on April 27, 1999).
Location: Near Dowling, Ontario.

A man (VT), his teenage daughter and a friend of hers were heading over to a rural route near Dowling to pick up a second friend. She pointed out to them a bright circular object which was stationary above the tree line to the west; she had been watching it for 20 minutes. The foursome drove to a stop sign near the girl's home, and watched the object for a couple of minutes, but there was no movement. They proceeded down the road to a third friend's home. The girls looked out the back window and saw the object following them. They continued on as the object passed very low overhead (100 feet). The object's body could not be seen, but it had a red light in the rear and on each side, green lights that flickered. They proceeded onto Hwy 144 with the object slightly in front of them. The driver turned off Hwy 144 onto another rural route, and went to a farm. The girls got out and went behind the barn where they watched the object as it headed for Chelmsford. Then the man proceeded back to Hwy 144 and headed towards Dowling. The object turned around and started following the vehicle on the passenger side. The driver decided to turn off Hwy 144 onto a rural route. The object also turned and followed parallel to his right. It was very low, maybe a couple hundred feet. The man turned onto another road and the object turned again and passed him.

It was dark out. He pulled to the side of the road, stopped, switched his lights and motor off, got out and listened, but no sound. The UFO was still visible. He proceeded to catch up to it. And as he turned onto another road, the object would turn and stayed slightly in front and to the right of the vehicle. It went around another two 90° turns, then flew parallel at speeds between 40 and 65 mph. There were no erratic movements. The driver drove into his driveway, got out and listened...still no noise. He said: 'It made a parallel left turn when I turned left into my driveway. I went into the house to get my son to look out the upstairs window, but he could not see it because of the trees. I caught a glimpse of it, and it had changed back to a bright light.'

The man remembers that at the time, UFO sightings were being reported in Michigan and one possible sighting in Sudbury.

Date: Thursday, May 20, 1999.
Location: Dowling, Ontario.

Dowling resident VH reported to me that at around 6:10 p.m., his wife was looking through the kitchen window to the north and saw a disk-shaped object, silver in colour, with the sun reflecting off its surface. It looked to be a little over halfway up in the sky, moving from west to east. It then went behind a cloud and disappeared. She kept looking, hoping to see it again but never did. Then, at around 6:30 p.m., her husband noticed something in the same part of the sky but further away. He described it as a round object, very dull in colour, again moving from west to east. The size looked to be about that of an old 5-cent piece (smaller than a dime) at arm's length. It also disappeared behind the clouds. He waited and watched for it, but never saw it again. The weather was clear, the sun was still out and the clouds were thin. He could clearly see it with the naked eye. 'It was no plane, no helicopter, no bird and no weather balloon,' he said. But he's not sure what it was.

Date: January 1998 (reported on Thursday, May 27, 1999).
Location: Lake Temagami, Ontario.

In early January of 1998, a man (PM) and his girlfriend were walking along the frozen ice on Lake Temagami near the shoreline of Bear Island. The time was about 12:30 a.m. when he saw a green glow about 50 metres wide above the tree line. At first, he ignored it, thinking his mind was playing tricks, then the light turned red for 3 seconds, then back to green. He writes: 'There are no traffic lights on Bear Island because it's too small to fit cars. My friend and I began to panic and turned to run home where we came from. I immediately called my dad, who is the reserve constable, to check out the light. He jumped on his ski-doo towards the glowing light and it disappeared into the horizon. Then the following day there were two air force jets from the North Bay airbase flying over the same area where the lights were. Is this a coincidence? My mother recalls she and a group of her friends saw something very similar as a teenager hovering above the ice near the same area.'

Date: Tuesday, June 15, 1999.
Location: Dowling, Ontario.

At around 11:20 p.m., Dowling resident VH was outside looking at the star-studded sky when, out of nowhere, appeared a strange light...'as you turn a light on,' he said. It was in the western part of the sky, about 3/4 of the way up from the horizon. Then, it got brighter and bigger and went out. Where the light disappeared, another light appeared, which was a lot smaller than a star. This second light went away slightly to the right at a 45 angle and vanished. The sighting lasted about 5 seconds.

Date: Sunday, June 27, 1999.
Location: Lively, Ontario.

A Lively resident (AB) reported that at around 12:20 a.m., he saw what he first thought was a star. But he soon realized that this steady white light was moving slowly. It then sped up at 45 angle and disappeared into the night sky. The sighting lasted 2 seconds.

Date: Early July 1999 (received anonymous call on July 10, 1999).
Location: River Valley, Ontario.

An elderly woman reported that at around 10:30 p.m., she saw a great big light travelling from the northwest and heading east. It was about the size of a plane, then it suddenly disappeared. Sighting took place during the same time period as the wind storm that damaged trees and property.

Date: Sunday, July 4, 1999 (reported on July 11, 1999).
Location: Providence Bay, Manitoulin Island, Ontario.

A woman (LH) reported that at around 9 p.m., while camping at Providence Bay, she and her family of four saw an unusual object in the sky. The family dog was the first to 'sense' something strange. They described it as a single white light which travalled straight across the horizon, from east to west. It then flared up twice and disappeared. There was no sound.

Date: Saturday, May 17, 1997 (written report received on Wednesday, July 7, 1999).
Location: Sudbury, Ontario.

'I saw this array move across the sky in a west-east direction at one in the morning, 17 May, 1997. The shapes were a dull orange colour and were visible for about ten minutes before fading gradually from view. All the while they maintained the triangular formation depicted above; although the loose conglomeration shown at bottom right wavered, it never veered from the general path. Before finally disappearing, the shapes seem to have changed direction for the pattern itself became distorted, as though it was slowly becoming inverted. I imagined this to mean the flight had angled upward from the original horizontal path.'

/s/ WG

Date: Summer 1998 (reported on Monday, July 12, 1999).
Location: Vermillion River, Chelmsford, Ontario.

While fishing at Vermillion River, a Sudbury resident (PM) saw an unusual light that came in from the west and headed south at a 20° angle as it disappeared behind the treetops. Then about 2 seconds later, he watched as the light came up from behind the treetops, heading in the same direction it originally came from, at an incredible speed. The time was approximately 10 p.m. and the night was clear. He said the light looked like a falling star. It never flashed and its colour was not the same as a star; it was yellowish-blue in colour. There was no sound.

Date: Tuesday, June 22, 1999 (reported on July 11, 1999).
Location: Sudbury, Ontario.

At approximately 11:45 p.m., a Sudbury resident noticed a reddish orange light travelling from south to north. He thought that it was probably a plane heading for the Sudbury airport even though it seemed to be pulsating instead of blinking. He was about to turn away when the light suddenly got brighter and another light lifted straight up from it, sat above it for a minute and then took off at high speed to the northwest. He went out for a better look with his binoculars, but the lights were gone.

He stayed outside for a few more minutes and was about to go back inside when he saw two reddish orange lights coming towards New Sudbury from the southwest. The lights were travelling side by side, with one slightly ahead of the other and passing under the clouds. 'They were much brighter than any other stars or planets and moving at a steady pace,' he said. 'I watched them with the binoculars but couldn't make out any kind of distinct shape about them. They then seemed to get brighter and a light would rise up from the front one about every 5 to 10 seconds and then bank around and head back towards downtown Sudbury. The back one also had lights rising from it, but at a much faster rate than the front one and these lights were much smaller and only red in colour.'

He said that the smaller lights were also banking around and heading towards downtown at a high rate of speed. The two main lights then started to curve slowly towards the northwest and seemed to just fade out. The sighting lasted for about 8 to 10 minutes. He never saw them again, even though he stayed out for another 30 minutes or so.

Date: Monday, July 12, 1999 (reported on July 15, 1999).
Location: South Bay, Manitoulin Island, Ontario.

A couple camping out at their camp on Manitoulin Island couldn't sleep because of the heat so they decided to lay down on the deck of their boat. As they watched the sky, they spotted a silver object as it came in from the west, stopped and reversed direction without turning around. The time was between 4 and 5 a.m.

Date: Wednesday, July 28, 1999.
Location: Blind River, Ontario.

I received a call from JM telling me of a First Nation elder from who reported to her that UFOs had landed in Hagersville, Ontario (near Kitchener). She also said that he had seen helicopters flying above the site, the following day. What was found was in fact two crop circle formations, of which the elder apparently took photographs of.

Date: Saturday, July 31, 1999.
Location: Blind River, Ontario.

I received another call from JM about the event and told her about the crop circle formations. She told me she would be given photographs of them by the elder who reported the incident to her. She also reported that a couple of people have had sightings of red lights flying around Blind River. On Monday, July 26, a man driving from Sudbury to Cutler (approx. 26 miles east of Blind River) saw a red light in the sky. He said it was going too slow for a falling star or a meteor and he said it went straight across the sky and was not falling. And on Tuesday night, July 27, at about 9:30 p.m., a man from Goulais Bay (near Blind River) who was outside sky-watching, had a similar sighting. He also said the light wasn't a falling star or a meteor, that it went straight across the sky, and didn't fall.

Date: Thursday, August 5, 1999 (E-mail received on August 13, 1999).
Location: Sudbury, Ontario.

On August 5, at around 4:30 a.m., a woman living in a basement apartment who woke up to go to the bathroom, looked out the window and saw a large bright round light coming up over the trees in her backyard. She was amazed at how big and brilliant it was. She went over to the window to get a better look and it seemed to come closer. Unsure as to what it was, she went to the bathroom. When she went back to the bedroom, she saw a brilliant glowing light coming through the blinds, shining directly on her bed...the entire length of it. She went back to the window and saw a beam of light leading up to a huge object. She couldn't tell how far away or how large it was except that it was very big and seemed to be hovering. At this point, she left the window and went to the living room where she spent the rest of the night on the couch. She said that although it took a while for her to fall asleep again, when she woke up, the sighting was still vivid to her. The witness wishes to remain anonymous, for fear of ridicule.

Date: Wednesday, August 18, 1999 (reported on August 23, 1999).
Location: Garson, Ontario.

A Garson resident (TW) reported that at about 11:43 a.m., he and four other witnesses saw a 'little cigar thing' as it crossed the sky and headed towards the INCO superstack. He said he was facing north when he spotted a very bright, white object as it came in from the east and moved very slowly towards the west. The day was clear and cloudless, with winds blowing from the northwest. He watched it for about 12 minutes until it disappeared in the smoke plume of the INCO superstack. He then turned around to talk to his two buddies and a couple of neighbours who were there with him and discussed what they had just seen. About three minutes later, they noticed another similar object in the eastern sky and watched as it followed the same path, moving very slowly across the sky towards the west. They watched this one for about ten to twelve minutes until it, too, disappeared. The main witness estimated that both UFOs were at an altitude of about 2,000 feet. He added that they (the cigar-shaped objects) were moving way too slow for an airplane and moving too fast to be balloons.

Date: Friday, August 13, 1999 (reported on August 23, 1999).
Location: Whitefish, Ontario.

At about 3:20 a.m., a Whitefish resident (WR) who was letting his dog out, happened to look west at a cluster of stars and all of a sudden, one of them turned very bright and large and moved 'about a couple of hundred feet' to the south, and got dim again. He went into the house to look for his binoculars and when he got back out, he couldn't find it again...it was lost in the stars. He said that it struck him odd that something like that would move. He stayed out for two hours because there were a lot of shooting stars, that night.

When asked if this was his first sighting, he said no. Ten years before, he was letting his dog out one night and as he looked east toward Sudbury, he saw what he thought was a falling star as it came down real fast. But just as fast as it came down, it went back up again!

Date: Unknown (reported on September 4, 1999).
Location: Copper Cliff, Ontario.

'My name is FL. It was either four or five years ago, I'd have to check back; we do keep records of when I was working. They had put me on a steady graveyard shift for the winter. And I was patrolling the tailings area and as I was coming back, I had just shut off a spotlight because I was checking a pipeline. And I just happen to glance up into the sky and I noticed a light, a bright light come basically straight down. I seen it go through the clouds; the clouds were sort of a wispy, reddish colour 'cause it was 4:10 in the morning. It went down...it went behind a light tower where the old Frood mine is, or Murray mine is…and went back down in behind the hills. And that's what I seen. There was no...no trail of any kind. No vapour trail. No light trail, no nothing. And that's what I saw. And I was really...shocked to see it. And I sat there for a minute or two, contemplating what I had seen. And then I took off for our...what we call hill station is where our Dry and everything is. I took off there in a big hurry in case that thing came back up again. So, that's basically my story. It's not a hell of a lot, but it's always been a mystery to me. And that's why I'm calling.'

FL then related how he saw the jets which were scrambled from Michigan during the Falconbridge UFO incident of November 1975:

'We didn't actually see anything, but we were working on the pipeline. And I guess North Bay had scrambled some jets and they were flying very low because it was overcast. And they were, I would say, maybe 300 feet off the ground, where we were and flew over very fast. And we heard later on that there was a UFO in the area. But because of the overcast, we couldn't see anything. But..other than the jets, which kind of got me excited about the idea. And that's all I have to say about that one.

Date: Saturday, August 21, 1999 (reported on September 4, 1999).
Location: Lively, Ontario.

At around 2 a.m., a man (TG) witnessed three lights in a perfect triangle travelling in a straight line through the haze of the Milky Way, from the southwest to the northeast. The lights did not flash like those of an aircraft. They seemed similar in speed, height and linear travel to satellites, which he has seen dozens of times, but never in formation or near other satellites.

Date: August 14, 1998 (reported on September 6, 1999).
Location: Walden, Ontario.

At around 6 p.m., a Walden resident was talking to a couple of neighbours and about 50 feet up above a house, she noticed a round, silver ball...a round shape about the size of a soccer ball. She said: 'What the hell is that?' As the other neighbours looked, it shrunk down to the size of a tennis ball. The object started floating through the air, moving away very slowly towards the east.

She also reported that she had seen something else in the same area that had lights…three lights: red, green and yellow. 'And it wasn't moving or anything, it was just sitting above a treetop,' she said. She said she couldn't see any shape or anything like that.

She also related a third sighting she had when she was 17, living in Ottawa. From her 17th floor balcony, she and a friend saw something similar to the three lights. She doesn't remember the colours, but the object was sitting there, then would move from left to right, then sit for a while again.

Date: Wednesday, September 8, 1999 (reported on September 10, 1999).

At around 12:30 a.m., a Wal-Mart night crew supervisor and a delivery truck driver saw a ball of light flying very low over the store. It was really bright, and was accompanied by the sound of rushing wind at it flew by.

Date: July 1968 and July 1999 (reported on September 11, 1999).
Location: Sudbury, Ontario.

I located a former Sudburian (SZ) now living in Calgary, who was an eyewitness to a sighting back in July 1968. He described how he and his friend were walking home and saw a light in the sky that was moving parallel to Howey Drive and would sometimes stop. He couldn't remember the date, but the article in the Sudbury Star is dated August 15, 1968.

He also reported that at about 1:20 a.m., one night this past July, while visiting his dad in Sudbury, saw a stationary white light that went up and around the Bell communication tower located above the old Prince Charles school. About 20 minutes later, it was gone.
