August 1952

Burnaby, B.C. Three Disc Shaped Craft

Date: August 1952
Time: 2:00 p.m.

Number of witnesses: 3 plus
Number of objects: 3
Shape of objects: Round flattened.

Full Description of event/sighting: My husband and I saw the children looking up at the sky and went to check. It was bright daylight and directly over our head were 3 disc shaped craft close together and stationary. They appeared metallic, whitish grey and there were no windows, lights or other attachments.

My husband was a former wireless air gunner and he estimated them to be about 500 feet up and about fifty feet in diameter. They looked like a large Frisbee but they were solid, thick and had a rounded edge. We watched then for about fifteen minutes. We had no camera. Suddenly they started to move straight up at a terrific speed but at an angle and we watched then until they were a small speck in the cloudless sky. I have read about a lot of strange lights at night but this was unmistakable. We were directly beneath them so we could not see their upper side. Just the underneath. There were dozens of calls to the police to report it but the Government put a blackout on the reports.

Thank you to the eyewitness for the interesting report.
