Canadian Sighting
CE-3 landing witnessed by six, approached by two.

Seven or eight bright spherical objects were seen in the skies
between 8:30 PM and 9:30 PM Eastern time, near Montreal, Canada
during the summer of 1967. Six men had been swimming at a
public pool in the suburbs on the south shore of the St.
Lawrence River near the exit of the Champlain Bridge when they
spotted several objects streaking across the southern sky
almost in formation.

The objects suddenly separated and began moving in different
directions very rapidly (..."almost at the speed of light."),
changing course and making extreme maneuvers, stopping
instantly, then streaking off in another direction, stopping
and moving in apparently random patterns. They were different
colors, red, orange, yellow and green.

After ten to fifteen minutes, all but one vanished instantly
outward away from the earth. The single bright sphere began to
descend rapidly toward a clearing. It landed behind a stand of
trees near a new housing development.

Two of the men walked south along a service road to where it
intersected another service road leading west. They continued
down the westward road until they could enter the trees to
observe the object.

The object was a large, bright yellow sphere, approximately
twice the height of a telephone pole (40 to 50 feet), and
emitted a sound similar to that of a diesel train engine, but
alternating low and high pitch. Its shape and outline were
clearly defined and observable as a sphere with dark tinted
windows near the top third portion.

The men observed the object for approximately 20 minutes at a
distance of 75 feet, whereupon, the object lifted from the
earth and vanished rapidly upward and toward the west.

When they called a local radio station to ask if others had
reported the phenomena, they were thought to be playing a joke
so they gave up.

The object observed on the ground was described as having the
appearance of a yellow grapefruit twice the height of a
telephone pole illuminated from within by lights "as bright as
the sun."

It was a hot, dry, clear, calm night. Bright stars were
observed, against which the motion of these objects were
compared. The objects were seen to perform extreme maneuvers,
stopping, then rushing away in another direction. They did not
explode or break into pieces. None emitted smoke or exhaust
trails. They changed brightness, throbbing and pulsating
although none ever changed shape.

The object on the ground was observed in clear air by the
person who filed the report. It was a solid, three dimensional

No occupants were seen to exit the vehicle, although it was out
of sight from the time it landed until the men entered the
stand of trees. No open hatches or doors were reported. No
landing gear were reported. No burning or tingling was
reported. No landing prints were reported.

The objects were reported to be unlike any other object the
witness had ever seen.

Aircraft, whether fixed wing or rotary wing, display certain
flight characteristics identifying them as man-made objects
capable only of maneuvering within the Earth's atmosphere.

Landing lights, when seen from the front of the aircraft, can
be easily recognized as beams of light. If the aircraft passes
the observer, the forward shining beam of light can no longer
be seen.

Additionally, navigation lights required to be operating on
aircraft during night maneuvers are also clearly identifiable,
usually from a distance of 20 or more miles. Commercial and
private aircraft display the same kinds of lights as a matter
of law.

A red light appears on the port wing tip; a green light appears
on the starboard wing tip; a white light is displayed on the
top center fuselage or at the top of the vertical fin, and a
red rotating beacon is displayed under the fuselage. During
daylight and night flights a very bright white strobe light is
displayed under the fuselage.

Landing lights (one or more) may be located in the leading
edges of the wings, or just forward and integral with the
forward landing gear, or in the nose of the aircraft. Older
aircraft had landing lights that swung out of the wings in

Aircraft engines, whether reciprocating or jet, make known and
recognizable sounds. Rockets are extremely loud and emit great
volumes of exhaust gases. People who live in civilized
countries, unless they have been locked in closets all their
lives, can immediately recognize the sounds and flight
characteristics of aircraft built to function in our
atmosphere, even when such aircraft are observed at night.

No known aircraft is capable of the extreme maneuvers displayed
by UFOs such as those reported in midsummer of 1967 in
Montreal, Canada. No known aircraft, even to this day, can stop
in mid-flight, change directions, and speed away at thousands
of miles per hour or dart up and down, back and forth while
changing colors.

No aircraft known to any of the thousands of people who write
books and compile catalogs of every aircraft ever built on this
planet has been described as having the shape and flight
characteristics or the engine sounds of those reported by a
number of witnesses.

Yet, luminous spheres, large and small, have been seen
traversing the skies of every country on Earth and even landing
on occasion. It seems unlikely that any airforce on this planet
had a squadron of luminous spheres in their inventory in 1967
or we would have seen them by now. No one could keep them a
secret for 45 years unless they had a way to make you believe
you didn't see them.

Although the public was denied seeing the A-117 Stealth Fighter
until the Gulf War, most journalists and aircraft experts knew
of its existence. The SR-71 and YF-12A were common sights on
television and in magazines. The U-2 was public knowledge soon
after it was built.

As remarkable as these planes are, they were just preludes to
Aurora, CIA's newest spy plane. But even Aurora cannot perform
the extreme maneuvers displayed by UFOs. If the US Airforce had
sphere-shaped aircraft capable of performing the maneuvers and
speeds reported of these objects in 1967, they would have
become the ONLY type of aircraft used by all airforces in the
world! We would have seen them regularly in the skies for the
past 25 years. We might even have travelled from coast to coast
on a commercial model by now.

No company or agency on this planet will admit to manufacturing
them. But are there secret bases hangaring squadrons of
luminous spheres capable of near light speeds into deep space?

If we had one or two, we would never have developed the Space
Shuttle or sent primitive rockets to the moon or launched
probes from earth orbit to Venus and Mars. Scientists would
have jumped into the first available sphere and made the trip
personally, recorded spectacular events in their journals and
spent hours showing us pictures on television!

That means the true UFOs must be coming to this planet from
somewhere else, and if they are capable of moving at near light
speeds or tripping the stargates, that somewhere else might be
several galaxies removed from us.

Serious study must be made of the characteristics of the sphere
sighted in Canada in 1967. A sphere that is solid but appears
to be lighted from within might be radiating energy from a
source that could identify the kind of propulsion system used
by at least this type of UFO.

What would sound like the engine of a diesel train, alternating
high and low pitch*, and radiate such brilliance? What kind of
inertial system would allow such extreme maneuvers without
harming the occupants? If an object 40 or 50 feet in diameter
were surrounded by an anti mass field, how much power would be
needed to propel it away from the earth at thousands of miles
per second?

If you or anyone you know can support this sighting, or confirm
it, write and request an official report form.

* This sound has been reported by a number of people worldwide.
Residents of Taos, New Mexico have heard the "idling diesel"
for several years - underground!
