headed home by way of the Fraser Canyon. It was
a beautiful sunny afternoon and we were second in a convoy
of four cars heading south down the wide dusty road.
in the distance, I spotted what I took to be an airplane
flying towards us, off to the left, about 75 or 100 feet
above the telephone lines. As it got closer, I saw that
it wasn't a plane at all, but a disk-shaped craft. It
was copper in colour and had a ridged section coming down
below the main body. There was a soft red glow coming
from all around this section. I would estimate the diameter
to have been no more than 100 feet. I watched it come
up the road and past us and continue north until it was
out of sight. Not one of the four cars stopped.
and I continued in silence. We hadn't said one word to
each other. Finally, after who knows how long, I said,
"Did you see what I saw?" His only reply was
"Yep". I said, "Nobody's going to believe
us." He said, "Nope." We never discussed
it again. I haven't seen him in probably thirty years,
but he was badly injured when he hit a moose probably
20 years ago and his sister has told me since that he
probably doesn't even remember me anymore, let alone that
incident. I didn't tell anyone about this for a long time,
but one day, probably in 1986 or 87, I read a story in
the Vancouver Sun which was very similar to what I remember.
I wish I had saved it, or at least contacted the person
the story was about, but I didn't.
I know is that I saw a UFO of some sort, in broad daylight,
and so did a number of other people. It was a flying machine,
as plain to me as a Piper Cub would have been. I sure
wish I could see another one.
is a sketch which is to the best of my recollection. Of
course, we all know that time and age can change memories,
but this is pretty close, even though I'm not much of
an artist. The one thing I have revised about my story
is the diameter. It couldn't have been 100 ft. because
the distance above the ground was more than the diameter
of the craft. Therefore I would estimate it at between
50 and 60 feet. There really was nothing much else out
of the ordinary about the UFO, as compared to other pictures
I've seen, and I've questioned my memory many times because
of that. However, as many times as I doubt myself, in
my heart I know that this is what I saw. And what I saw
