Sudbury, Ontario, Canada
November 29, 1996, 2:00 AM
At about 2:00 AM on Friday, November 29, 1996, a northbound Canadian National (CNR) freight train encountered a UFO similar to the one seen in Sudbury, Ontario the previous week. The train had left the railyard in Barrie, near Toronto, earlier that day, bound for Capreol, a mining town just north Sudbury. The train had two-man crew consisting of an engineer and a conductor and moved along the lonely CN track through the Boreal Forest at a leisurely 20 to 30 miles per hour. As the train approached Ardbeg, which is located 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of Lake Huron's Parry Sound, the two men "saw an orange and green light come down from the sky."The men "first saw the light through the right (engineer's) window (of the locomotive)" and "thought it was going to crash." The UFO then hovered 600 yards (540 meters) from the CN train at 45 degrees above the treeline. They described the UFO as "bing the size of a street light at 600 yards." Minutes later, the object "flew off to the west," apparently heading for Lake Huron.
