Mid 1970's Approx. 8pm
It was in the mid 1970's and 8 of us had gone to a friends farm for cross country skiing. Time was around 8 pm.
The farm was located just a few miles west of the town of Uxbridge and a few hundred yards south of the east/west highway which ran directly in to main street Uxbridge. After dinner we put on our skis and went out west of the farm house. One member was further ahead of our group and sighted something in the sky north of our location.
When we reached him, he said look over there, which was due north. Approx 1/2 mile north of our location. Very close.
Over the years I personally have looked into the skys since the early 1950's and have sighted many unusual objects but this was the grand slam. It was classic saucer shaped and huge.
It must have been about 100 feet wide and 30 feet high in dimensions with multi coloured lights circling around it's beltline. It would periodically move up and down and left and right leaving a star dust trail on each movement. I prayed it would come towards us but it finally started to slowly move to the north east direction silently and in about 30 seconds it accelerated like a rocket and disappeared almost immediately. I read a book by Von Dinigin (not correct spelling) that mentioned sightings were common on Wed. and Sat. nights especially around heavy magnetic fields.
I went to the Ontario Legislative bldg. at Queens Park, Toronto and researched a book of maps showing magnetic fields in Ontario and low and behold all the various sighting I have seen over all the years were in the these areas. It appeared that while it was hovering near Uxbridge it seemed as if it was intensly drawing up someting from the earth. It was unbelievebly facinating. All 8 of us witness this awesome sight on a cold winter night in February....eight witnesses.
Our thanks to the witness for this report.
