Cowichan Station Dear Duncan British Columbia A Circular Craft Hovering (UFO)
Date: May 10, 1981
Time: Approx: 9:00 p.m.
Hi Brian, This is related to a sighting which took place many years ago on Vancouver Island. The date was May 10, 1981. My husband, myself and my mother-in-law were returning home from a visit with friends around 9:00 p.m. We were driving down a country road in Cowichan Station near Duncan when I happened to look up ahead and saw lights in the sky. As we neared the site where the lights were, all of us saw a craft hovering over the roadway. My husband stopped the car and we got out and there, directly above the treetops, was a circular craft that appeared stationary and seemed to be about 40 feet across as it covered the entire space from one side of the road to the other. The bottom of the craft was lit with white lights around the circumference and it made no sound that we could discern. We stood under the craft for about a minute or two and then it began to move. We jumped back into the car and backed up just in time to see the craft zoom across the open field towards the mountains. It was gone in a matter of seconds although we could still see the distant lights of the craft going along the mountainside. None of us had heard any sound whatsoever from the craft when it left the area.
We were rather stunned by the event but did try contacting the local radio station to see if anyone else had reported this sighting, no one had. Some days later we contacted Comox Air Force base to inquire if there had been any craft such as we had seen and they answered no, and did not seem interested in talking to us. This event has left a deep impression with us and we do think about it often. Up until that sighting my husband and mother-in-law were complete skeptics regarding the possibility of extraterrestrial craft, if indeed this is what we saw. As for myself, I had always had an interest in the subject and many times felt frustrated that the people closest to me had such closed minds on the subject. All I can say is that it really was a life-changing event.
Thank you to the witness for the wonderful sighting report.
