1981 Exact Date Unknown
"My father has always been a space enthusiast. Anything to do with astronomy and the like had his attention, Star Trek was huge with him, (anything to do with Gene Rodenbury...or what ever it is, I distance myself lol), he knew every episode word for word.
Anyhow,I was about 4 years old and my mom worked midnights, so he and I were left alone for the night. I had a strict bedtime routine and was always in bed *officially* by nine PM, but I was one of those kids that had an excuse every five minutes to be out of bed. Around 10, I knew he was getting upset so I went to bed and started dozing off.
I am guessing it was about 11PM, my father came busting into the bedroom, and scooped me out of bed. He was practically glowing with excitement! I really didn't know what he was saying to me at the time because he was talking extremely fast.
Anyway he whisked me out to our balcony. We lived on the (exact address removed for privacy) Apt building in the West End of Toronto. Looking to the left, we had a gordeous view of Lake Ontario and I loved watching the sail boats after dinner during sunset.
He pointed out over the lake and there it was, a huge craft of some type. It was glowing different coloured lights and was just hovering there. I remember distinctly having the hair on the back of my neck and my arms stand straight up. I begged him to take me in. He was so mesmerized by it. Like a little boy in a candy store, as this is what he'd always hoped to see. He did take me back to bed and asked if I knew what I had just seen. I told him I did and I was scared.
Anyhow that always stuck with me because he still brings it up from time to time, he still gets that lit up look when he talks about it.
The closest I can come to describing it is to an album cover my mom used to have...strangely enough around the same time she listened to it like crazy, E.L.O. has a record with a UFO on the cover and that is EXACTLY what this thing looked like. My father had/has the exact same description."
