Mystery Lights Over Lake Erie - A Mystery from The Great Lakes Triangle
While taking his usual early morning walk along the shores on Lake Erie, Ontario, near Morgan's Point, business professional, Dirk Vander Ploeg eyes were drawn to the south-eastern skies, were two bright objects, one brighter than the other conducting maneuvers that could not have been terrestrial aircraft. Vander Ploeg immediately returned to his residence, found his camcorder, and returned to the shoreline, where the two unknown objects were videotaped maneuvering for approximately one hour. The objects appear on video to be a planetary alignment... that it, until the objects start moving in two opposite directions - then returning back to their original locations over the Lake to which Vander Ploeg's attention was originally attracted two. At approximately 11:00 a.m., Rob McConnell, the host of THE 'X' ZONE RADIO SHOW, and a personal friend of Vander Ploeg arrived and was shown the videotape. After viewing the footage, McConnell placed several calls to colleagues in Canada and the United States to see if there was any explanation for the strange maneuvers or if in fact, the objects were terrestrial... a rare planetary alignment or possibly extraterrestrial craft. Calls included Canada's crack Search and Rescue in Trenton, Ontario.... NORAD at Cheyenne Mountain... Air Traffic Control Centers in Canada and the United States. The reply from all sources - there were no calls of a UFO order... there were no unknown targets on radar screens... commercial or military. Peter Davenport of the National UFO Reporting Center in Washington was contacted. Davenport stated that an astronomer called into the center last evening at approximately 21:00 PST and reported a sighting but there could no no correlation with Vander Ploeg's sighting. The video footage of this sighting will be shown on CHTV and SPACE: The Imagination Station has been contacted as well. A UFO watch has been e\established for the early hours of Sunday, July 15, between the hours of 03:00 and 06:00 am Eastern.
