Full Description of Event/Sighting: The following is a cut and paste from a recent email I sent to a friend of mine who was curious about my story, so I decided to share it with you.
I was around 9 years old living in the West Island of Montreal. I have trouble nailing down the actual year but I can guess around 1970 - 71. I was on the main floor of our 2 storey home watching TV when my mom yelled from the upstairs bathroom to let our dogs out to do their business. I opened the sliding thermo pane doors in the kitchen. After the dogs ran out to the yard, I stepped outside onto the raised concrete patio to wait for them to do their thing. I was on the patio for no more than a few seconds when I looked in the night sky directly above my head.
What I saw was a circular object and it was certainly not the moon. It was silent and not moving. If I could describe the size of the object, it would be comparable to holding a silver dollar (or Canadian $1 Loonie) in your fingers tips at arm's length against the sky. I would venture a guess from my days as a novice student pilot that it was probably 1,500 feet overhead. The object was very bright and did not emit light. Actually, the light was contained within the object itself and had a shimmery effect. I watched the object for approximately one minute.
I guess I was waiting for it to display some sign that it was a conventional aircraft or some thing that I could identify with as a 9 year old. There was nothing conventional about this object and I knew that intuitively enough to poke my head inside the house and yell upstairs to my mother "quick come downstairs you have to see this thing". My mother would not be taken away from her pre-bedtime routine and yelled something back indicating she was not interested. After my mother's refusal to witness, I went back to my position and continued to observe the object.
It remained motionless for another 30-45 seconds. What happened next was mind bending and certainly displayed unconventional characteristics. The object, in the blink of an eye, shot straight up and stopped. It had accelerated upward and then came to a resting state for about 4 or 5 seconds. If you blinked you would have missed it or it was so fast that you might as well have blinked. Going back to my coin comparison, the object was now smaller and comparable to the diameter of a nickel held at arms length in your finger tips, and it was visibly further away.
After another 4-5 seconds,the object did it again and shot straight up and came to a stop. Our little spaceship is now the size of say less than half of what is was before and visibly further away from it's prior position. So the object repeated it's accelerated movement after remaining in a motionless state for 4-5 seconds. Then again it pulsed/shot straight upward and when it stopped it was so high in the night sky that it looked like one of the stars. Then, after a few seconds, it just blinked and was gone as if it was a light that had been turned off. I remember much of that night like it just happened.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
