UFO HOVERED OVER ROAD
On April 14, 1967, at about 8:05 p.m., Ian Squire and Scott McNeil (two boys aged 13 and 14) were on their cycles going along Cedar Hill Croosroad. They crossed over Cadboro Bay Road into Upper Terrace Road and proceeded down into Ripon Road as far as the Circle. From there, they saw a red and green light hovering over what they thought was probably the area of the Uplands Golf Club House on Cadboro Bay Road. They were on their way down to the Yacht Club, and didn't stop to investigate. The two lights were not blinking, and seemed stationary ( but it must be remembered that on their cycles, they were moving, which prevented their being certain about this last point). The sky was dark and starry, there was hardly any wind at all. At 8:10 p.m. the same night, ie. five or six minutes later, Ian Squire's grandmother was driving uphill along Cadboro Bay Road southwards toward the northern gates into the Uplands district, when suddenly she saw a red and green light over the roadway at about the the height of the roofs of the houses on the upper bank of the roadway, i.e. higher than a very tall tree. The witness who is known to me personally and through her daughter, and grandson Ian, unfortunately did not stop to investigate. Instead, she continued on right underneath the object which, she said, looked like a very distinct dark shape which spread entirely over the width of the wide roadway. The two coloured lights, she said, seemed to be shining only forwards, and to be from four to six feet from the extremities of the dark shape behind them. There was a tiny white light behind,which did not seem to be attached to the object in any way ; but as the night was very dark, she admits this could also have been a star. The coloured lights were not blinking, and the object seemed not to move, although she of course was moving towards it in her car. She describes the object ( which she admits, she saw very distinctly in the almost complete darkness) , as a black wing - like thing which made no noise. Then she suddenly thought "Surely it can't be a plane, this low. Perhaps it is a flying saucer". The size of the two coloured lights was small, about the size of ordinary car blinker lights. If the witness had stopped to investigate, this could have been a most important sighting. Unfortunately, she preferred to continue on her way, and thus lost a great opportunity.
