Late Fall & Summer 1960

Barrhead, Alberta

Date: 1960 (late fall)
Time: Approx: 9:30 p.m.

I talked on the telephone with a really nice lady who now is living in southern British Columbia. Her and her husband are originally from Barrhead, Alberta a town some 70 miles northwest from Edmonton. One night on their farm while out doing their chores, milking the cows, etc. in the late fall. Their hay field was directly west of the barn and when their son at the time was 7 years old and was standing looking into the field, he said. Daddy, there is a stop light sitting in the grain field. As they turned to look they all saw a softball sized, brilliant red light/object sitting just over the tops of the grain. As they watched the object moved slowly and along the way it changed it's color to white and then finally green. The witness told me they had to have watched this event for approx: 20 minutes as the children had time to run back to the house and call the grandparents to come outside and watch what was taking place. The light/object kept up a steady pace over the fields. The family now watching the object through binoculars until they all lost sight of it in the far distance. It at times changing direction as it moved along.

Thank you to the witness for the report.

Barrhead, Alberta

The same lady who reported the sighting above told me of another report. There was a dance which took place at the Barrhead town hall one evening. Many folks were in attendance. All of a sudden the lights burned out and everyone stood watching five objects hovering over a power sub station. She also said that many pictures were taken of the objects sitting in the sky, and most likely some of the photos could be found if someone was to go looking, or asking area residents who lived there at the time.

Thank you to the lady for the report.
