Ottawa Valley Late Summer 1967
I was about fifteen years old. August or September of 1967 behind the Monastary in Aylmer, Quebec with two friends, Chris and Bruce. We sighted a UFO directly above us. We sighted this simultaneously and shouted this out in perfect unison: ''Look, there's a flying saucer.'' This light was of an intensity much brighter than any 'one' of the surrounding stars. This night was a perfectly clear night, one could see every star. We were observing this wonderful sight when we caught sight of this bright light. This light zig zagged in a small area above us until it was directly and exactly above us, after which in a very short time, it's light diminished in intensity until we could not tell it apart from the other stars. Then again simultaneously we all directed our attention to.... straight ahead. Now we were sitting on a hill, not quite at the top, but high enough to be level with the top of a tree. This tree was on the edge of a corn field just across the gravel road that was at the bottom of this hill. Level with the top of this tree was a UFO enveloped in a mist. This horrified my older friends and they were down the hill within seconds. They moved so fast, I didn't even react until they were going over the fence, through the cornfields and towards home. I ran too, never did catch up with them that night. We always reminded one another of this afterwards. A few years after I left Aylmer Quebec, I heard Bruce had passed away. I have not seen Chris since about 1975.
Our thanks to Derek J. Chin and his son Matthew for sharing this experience with us.
