On Saturday evening, March 22 at 9 pm to 10 pm Mr. JR
Wilson and an acquaintance Miss Susan Wiebe happened to look from a window
from their residence at 8th St and 96 Ave and saw over near the Loran towers,
The object remained in one place for
nearly three quarters of an hour, then took off straight up! As near as could
be judged, it hovered at 2000’ altitude, had the brightness of an aircraft
tail light but much larger and it did change color from yellow to blue, then
to orange and sort of ‘pulse’.
Mr Wilson states that he had read the
Peace River Block News report a week ago and the object he saw resembled the
description given. He goes on to state that since there was a wind it couldn’t
have been a light in a plastic bag as it remained stationary. He said it could
not be meteor, or a star as it took off straight up! and there is no ordinary
object that can do that. Also, it was not a distortion of the window glass as
they went outside and watched. He believes some of the BC Telephone girls off
duty were able to see it, but this has not been confirmed at time of writing.
If anyone else in this area saw a UFO
or an unexplainable light, write us at the Booster. Perhaps the UFO’s want to
live at Dawson too!
