- Date: Approx: August 29, 1966
- Time: Evening
- I received a telephone call from a man by the name of
Walter. He and his brother ended up having an unforgettable experience
- It was late August of 1966 and Walter said this is one
of those haunting things that comes up from ones memory from the distant
past. Walter said over the years he and his brother have had some discussion
over certain aspects of the event. He also noted that the brothers never
talked about the experience to anyone for about two or three years after
the event took place. They were quite reticent from openly speaking about
it. When the men finally did start talking about it their story came in
a fragmented way. Walter mentions that the differences in the brothers
story were not actually the event itself, but rather the time sequence.
After the two fellows really dove into what took place, Walter's brother
was convinced that they were coming to their summer residence and Walter
was convinced they were leaving to go home.
- Another important note to this is that they wondered
if the date of the sighting was correct, but after Walter started checking
around finally was able to make contact with the owner of the newspaper
for that time period and he was able to recall the event because there
were others who were witness to some unusual sightings on that same day.
Two reports were made and no explanation was found for what these witnesses
reported. Also folks had reported seeing strange sights in the sky north
of a small settlement along Highway 71 going from Corona to Fort Francis,
Ontario. The government dismissed the apparent phenomena as a large release
of incandescent swamp gas, the owner of the newspaper told Walter. Walter
of course thought this was pretty amazing swamp gas as it retained an ellipsoidal
shape and paced the two brothers vehicle for a long distance as they traveled
down the highway, plus it could ascend vertically at a tremendous rate
of speed. As Walter said, he had a hard time with the swamp gas explanation!
- Walter describes what exactly was witnessed:
- There is a tourist camp at Caliper Lake which is located
approximately seven to eight kilometers south from Nester Falls in northwestern
Ontario. Their vehicle had just passed south of Caliper Lake. In the back
seat of their car were the family pets they were taking back home. The
men had a large tabby cat by the name of Tiger, and a male bulldog by the
name of Eric and last but not least a nile monitor which was kept in a
box as the cat and the monitor didn't get along all that well. It is roughly
11:00 p.m. at night, the men heading south and they were passing Larson's
Camp and noticed the lights still on at the camp. There was no other traffic
on the highway at this time. Walter is in the passenger's seat and his
brother is driving. Walter dozed off briefly and was awakened by his brother
jabbing him telling him how bright it had become around the car. The witness
said there was an intense bright light which lit up the entire area. Walter
said it was so bright that they were able to see way off the road and into
the forest. Also he turned around to look out the back window of the vehicle
and it was lit up as well. As Walter is looking out the back, he can see
the cat is sitting up close to the window very agitated, the dog is on
the floor of the car moaning and the nile monitor has it's head out of
the box with it's tongue working rapidly. The cat not bothering with it
as it was hissing at something else.
- Walter turned to his brother and said something had to
be over top of the car. The speed at which they were traveling was about
60 miles an hour at that time. Also they had been listening to the radio
when it started to get alot of static. As the fellow told me, at that time
of night one would be able to pick up a number of radio stations as the
reception is much better than during the daytime hours. They instantly
tried other radio channels and all they heard from the different channels
was static. Both men looking at one another in amazement, with a bright
light sitting over top of them, the animals acting up in the car and now
losing reception on the radio, they wondered what was going on!
- Still traveling along the highway with an intense light
above them, they were coming to a second hill, when in front of their
vehicle, only about 200 to 400 meters away traveling over top the highway
was a huge ellipse of white light. This object in front of them was pacing
them and not far off the highway's surface. The men guessed the second
object was about 10 to 15 meters off the ground. It seemed that one object
was above them and one object was in front of them. Walter told me they
were more curious than anything and sped up to see if they were able to
catch up to the object in front of them, but as they did, the ellipse of
white light stayed pretty much at the same distance away from their car.
No matter how fast they drove, there was an equal distance between the
object and vehicle.
- (HBCC UFO Research Note: The distance the event took
place in was approximately 25 kilometers. The time everything started was
at 11:00 p.m. The men came to an intersection/small community called Finland.
They came off the high ground, curved around on the highway and dropped
down onto a straight stretch in a low lying area which was about a kilometer
in distance. While on the straight stretch the light in front of them ascended
vertically at an incredible rate of speed. Walter said if he was to count
to four the object had completely vanished from their sight. It went that
fast. As the object in front of them disappeared so did the light above
the car. Walter said it just winked out. There may have been a split second
between the two objects disappearing. The static on the radio cleared and
they were able to pick up the radio stations once again.
- Another peculiar thing they found was that they were
traveling through Finland at about midnight when they realized that it
had just taken them about an hour to travel the 25 kilometers. Like Walter
said, they didn't travel less than 80 to 90 kilometers an hour. He said
there was a hiatus, something happened in that period of time.
- What Walter and his brother find puzzling is the time,
(an hour to drive the 25 kilometers) that they have no explanation for.
- Where was the missing time?
- Walter saw a friend and told her about what had gone
on, and how nothing seemed to make sense. She offered to try a regression
session with him to see if he was able to recall anything that took place
that evening. He agreed to give this a try as he wanted answers if possible
as he said his brother and he have been arguing for years about the absent
piece of time and the actual going and coming issue they can't seem to
agree on. One brother thought they were on their way home, and the other
believes they were traveling in the other direction away from home.
- Apparently, through the regression and during this event
the brother driving did stop the car. The brothers could not recall this
taking place as they always felt they continued traveling the highway and
did not stop at any time. Both men after stopping the vehicle got out
and walked off to the right side of the road. They stood looking upwards
and observed the light that had been above their car move off and hover
above the trees close by. Walter recalled seeing what appeared to be portholes
along the side of the craft. They apparently stood there for a few minutes
watching it. Walter also has been trying to encourage his brother to go
through regression in hopes of getting some more parts to the puzzle. So
far his brother has been reluctant to go through this procedure. Walter
also doesn't recall been taken aboard the craft and it was not brought
out in the regression session that this did take place. So another mystery,
were the men taken or not ?
- The regression took place in 92/93 and HBCC UFO Research
has telephoned the lady who preformed the regression and she told me that
indeed the session did take place. Also Walter and the lady told me an
audio tape of the session was recorded and we are trying to find this at
- I would also like to add that this gentleman who related
this story to me, is a very credible man.
- My deepest thanks to Walter for coming forward and telling
his story. The audio clip of his story can be heard on the Jeff Rense
radio program (http://www.rense.com/) in hour one - Brian Vike - B.C. UFO
Phenomena with special guest Walter on February 18, 2005 in the show's
archives. The way the gentleman goes step by step through the experience
is one you do not want to miss.
