North York ON Approx. Summer 1978
I was around 12 years of age and old enough to know better (1978 approx). Living in a apartment complex on the corner of Don Mills and Van Horne Avenue in North York Ontario, myself and a bunch of kids had finished our dinner and as usual ran outside to enjoy the last few hours of the day we had.
This particular evening was warm, it was summer time, the sky was clear and the time was approximately 6:00 pm, remember the position of the sun.
I noticed something a object coming down from the sky, once myself and the other kids realized this was not a plane we gathered to a fence that was around the perimeter of the building so we could get closer.
The object in the sky came as low as the height of 3 apartment buildings (I remember studying the building while the craft was hoovering). Peering up at the object that was hoovering had pulsating lights around it. The object was saucer like in structure, and the bottom centre had a bit of a buldge. The metal was shiny and was purely metal from what I could see. Of course could not see the top of the craft, we were bascially not far from being underneath the craft. It hoovered for what seemed like eternity and though I don't know if time stopped because I ran to the intercom of the building, buzzed my parents who were entertaining friends and they couldn't make out what I was saying, also my parents balcony was on the other side of the apartment building. I then ran to the superintendents window and no one was home.
As I ran back to where the other kids were, the craft hoovered and moved sideways a few times. We ran across the street in order to get closer underneath the craft (crazy eh!), then all of the sudden the craft started to move a little more and lifted off straight out of the atmosphere with speed that was unbelievable.
I have to note further up the street is a heavy area of hydro transformers beside Seneca College.
I have always wondered if others saw the craft in this area and if there were any documentation of a craft hovering in the same area.
