Location: Yukon Territory, Canada
sisters saw a giant cigar-shaped UFO. It had a row of
rectangular windows. Small lights were flying in and out
of the large object. The UFO appeared to descent or disappear
behind a mountain, or into the ground. Missing time occurred.
Depiction of the UFO viewed from Point "C" (Figs
6 and 7). Sue and Sarah attempted to
count the 12 to 13 smaller glowing ships swarming about
one end of the giant cigar at this
point. They appeared to be going in and out of the larger
Sue's drawing at left and Sarah's on right, depicting
the UFO disappearing act behind
Haystack Mountain, were made independently.

To the twins, the UFO appeared
to "go into the dirt".

and Sarah 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 (Point "A", Figures
6 and 7). It is above the treeline so the views are unobstructed.
As they were nearing the summit, suddenly over the ridge
to their left and ahead of them in the sky, they spotted
a 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 (Figures 8 and 9). Sue
looked at her watch, and recalls that the time read 1:50
a.m., however she also noted that her watch had stopped.
urgency to get home had been considerably reinforced and
they were only about 30 minutes away. They went over the
flat summit and followed the ridgeline to the west.
they arrived at point "B", they don't recall
seeing where the UFO was. Perhaps it was obscured by the
ridgeline to the south, perhaps it was behind them, or
perhaps they simply "don't remember".
do recall traveling down the Quartz Road to the south
to start their descent into the Indian River Valley (Point
C, Figures 6 and 7). They could see much more detail in
the craft now and it was almost directly ahead of them.
They noted a swarm of small "ships" buzzing
around what they gathered to be the front of the object
that were not there previously. The front, they assumed,
was the end slightly tilted towards the sky. These small
ships appeared as bright hazy lights, 12 to 13 in number
as they did attempt to count them, and they were going
in and out of the big cigar-shaped thing! (Figure 10).
Their thought was "we have to get home!".
Perhaps they could get Sue's son to verify the unbelievable
sight they were witnessing.
drove down the steep descent along Quartz Road into the
valley and lost sight of the objects behind a hill on
their left (east) side of Quartz Creek. When they got
to point "D", the Quartz Creek Valley opened
up and they saw the object again. The "little
ships" were gone, apparently they had "tucked
themselves away" but they couldn't believe how
close this thing appeared to be. It was ahead of them
and appeared to be suspended right over their gold claim
(Figure 11), only about 3 km away. They were not far from
home now (point "D") and were able to travel
more quickly along the flat bottom of Quartz Creek Road.
They passed a placer mining operation on their right with
the workers outside seeming oblivious to the UFO. They
thought about pulling in and alerting the work crew but
the draw to Sue's son was much greater.
reached point "E" and they were astounded to
see this thing start to go behind Haystack Mountain, which
was 12 km away from them on the other side of the Indian
River! (Figures 12 and 13) With the mountain in front
of it now, the realization of the enormity of the object
was almost unbelievable. Up to now, they thought it was
over the Indian River at the furthest but now they realized
it was much more distant. 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 any second now, 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.
they reached point "F", less than a minute from
their home at point "G" they were frustrated
to see the last remaining portion of the "mothership"
descend behind Haystack Mountain (Figure 14). "How
could this thing fit behind Haystack unless it went 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,
it is 3:30 in the morning!" he said. Apparently,
the sisters were missing 2 hours from their journey.
they slowly unloaded their vehicle, they continued to
watch Haystack Mountain for a good 20 minutes to half
an hour but saw nothing more unusual.
next day, they visited the placer operation that they
passed by during their UFO sighting and spoke with the
cook. She had not heard anybody in the camp speak about
seeing anything unusual at breakfast. Surely, the sisters
thought that it would have been the subject of a lively
discussion around the breakfast table. The cook was skeptical
of the sisters so immediately separated them and had them
each draw what they had seen. She was flabbergasted to
see that their drawings matched. Although these original
drawing are no longer available, this person was subsequently
interviewed and confirmed the fact that the drawings were
similar. The drawings were much the same as the ones depicted
in Figure 12 that were drawn on March 8, 2000.
