received the following reports as a result of my letter
which appeared in the March 19 issue of Northern Life.
They include a report which turned out to be a natural
the past two weeks, a Sudbury resident has seen what appeared
to him to be a UFO in the western sky, after 7:30 pm.
It is visible for about three quarters of an hour, then
drifts off to the west which seems to be at a very slow
rate of speed. He said it is very bright nd he can't tell
the shape of it.
called a friend of mine about it, we went out and shot
it on video, and within seconds it was determined that
what the witness had been looking at was the planet Jupiter,
which is very bright at this time of year. If you look
at a planet or a star long enough, it will move or shift
At around 3:40 pm, March 10, a man driving from Elliot
Lake on Highway 108 toward Highway 17, reported seeing
a cone-shaped object moving across the sky from west to
east. The front end of it was squared off. There was no
vapour trail behind it and it was as white as a cloud.
He watched it for a minute, lost sight of it, then saw
it again for three minutes before disappearing from view.
A little after 10 pm on March 12, a boy was trying to
go to sleep when he looked out his window and saw a triangular
object in the night sky. It had three coloured lights;
one at each corner. One light was red and the other two
were white. He also noticed a fourth light in the center
of the craft; a smaller red light which was moving around
in a circular motion. He said that the triangular craft
was about as big as an aspirin held at arm's length. The
witness said it was too high to be a plane and jets can't
stop and go like it did. It stopped again way off in the
east and sped up and went south.
A Garson resident reported that at around 1:05 am March
13, he saw a big, round object moving across the sky in
a northwesterly direction. He said it blinked four times
before disappearing and described it as being lime-green
in colour, oval-shaped and as large as a garbage can cover
held at a distance of 15 feet.
At around 3 am on March 20, two women driving back from
Sault, Michigan, saw what first looked like a bright star
in the sky, that suddenly came down at tremendous speed
and flew past their car. The witness reporting the incident
was in the passenger seat and said that as the large ball
of light flew past the car, sparks were shooting off from
end to end. She looked back through the rear window of
the car to see the object as it stopped and hovered above
the road. She wanted to go back, but the other woman driving
the car didn't want to stop because she was afraid she'd
