It was late Sept.(or early October) 1991 at approx. 10pm...It was a clear night, and we were night fishing right near the Pickering Power Plant. I was with a friend from work, and we were fishing away from each other when I noticed something very large and bright in the sky ahead of us!...From what I remember (I didn't write this down) it was in the North East....I didn't really realize what it was until it started to SLOWLY move down, then stop for a couple minutes, then SLOWLY move sideways...When it started to move down, I yelled to my friend, and said are you seeing what I'm seeing?...and he said yeah!!....Then, when it was moving sideways, it suddenly went up.... sideways, and took off at a speed that was so fast, I have no clue how fast it could have gone!....Meaning, there were planes in the distance and this UFO was long gone in about a second or so!!! and it was already pretty high in the sky when I first saw it. Anyways, I remember everything about it!...I was 21 at the time, and my friend was 32!.....(I am now 38!)
It was very bright, and the whole thing took about 5-6 minutes, with it staying STILL, for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes!
Our thanks go out to the witness who shared this experience with us, including the sketch he made of this event. If you are interested in UFO sighting reports involving the Pickering nuclear generating station you may wish to have a look at these reports:
