was the last weekend in July, 1996 at approximately 11:55
pm. Sue and Sarah were on their way from Whitehorse to their
home in the gold fields southeast of Dawson City. They were
travelling on the Hunker Road driving up a steep hill towards
King Solomon Dome, a beautiful spot where one can see for
miles from the divide between the Klondike and Indian Rivers.
There, they spotted a very strange sight indeed. They could
not believe their eyes! Suspended in the sky was a giant
cigar-shaped something. It had a row of rectangular
windows and was sitting there motionless and at a slight
angle. Sue looked at her watch, and recalls that the time
read 1:50 am. However, she also noted that her watch had
stopped. After driving between hills and round curves in
the road, they could now see much more detail of the craft
which was almost directly ahead of them.
noted a swarm of small ships buzzing around
what they gathered to be the front of the object; these
ships had not been there previously. They assumed
the front was the end that slightly tilted towards the sky.
The smaller ships appeared as bright hazy lights, 12 to
13 in number as they made an attempt to count them. They
were going in and out of the big cigar-shaped thing! They
drove on down the steep descent along Quartz Road into the
valley before losing sight of the objects behind a hill
on the left-hand side. After regaining view of the object
again, the little ships were gone. Apparently,
they had tucked themselves away but they couldnt
believe how close this thing appeared to be.
passed a mining operation on their right-hand side where
the workers outside seemed oblivious to the UFO. They thought
about pulling in and alerting the work crew but the need
to return to Sues son was much greater. Astounded,
they watched this thing as it started to go behind Haystack
Mountain; this was 12 km away from them on the other side
of the Indian River! With the mountain partly in front of
the craft, they realized the enormity of the object was
totally unbelievable! This thing was huge! Its angle of
tilt had also increased as it continued to descend behind
Haystack Mountain. They were expecting it to shoot off into
the sky at any second, up and to the left, as they perceived
that to be the front of the craft. To their astonishment,
this thing continued to descend at the same angle behind
Haystack Mountain. How could this thing fit behind
Haystack unless it sunk into the dirt was their thought.
They came roaring into their driveway honking their horn.
Their son came running out, the sisters jumped out of the
car and tried to look for words to describe the awesome
event. They were beside themselves. Their son managed to
get in a few words in edge wise. Where have you been?
Its 3:30 in the morning! he said. Apparently,
the sisters were missing 2 hours from their journey.
