During Midweek Open Lines, many callers reacted to the previous night's debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, as well as shared eerie stories and UFO encounters. John Barbour appeared during the first 90 minutes of the show, telling stories of his rough childhood in Canada, and his path to becoming a comedian, film critic, and broadcaster.
On Sunday August 1, after a beautiful day in cottage country, I did what I always do on a clear night.
I went down to the lake to set up my Canon A80 P&S digital camera with a tripod on the dock to photograph the beautiful night sky with all those stars.
During a 15 sec. time exposure with the camera on its 35mm wide angle setting to my amazement a UFO came down from nowhere and hovered just around 200' & 45 degree angle from the camera.
I would have to say that it was approx. 50 feet in diameter.
As you can see from the photo it was your classic UFO with the 5 inverted domes. Each of them gave off a luminescent colored glow that rotated the 5 colors 1 rev. per sec. There was no sound at all.
This was the moment I always dreamed of. An opportunity to record with my semi-pro Canon video camera an excellent video of a UFO, especially since it was at such close range. Trouble is I didn't have it with me. Within seconds I ran upstairs back to the cottage retrieve my video camera shouting "UFO! UFO!" all the way. After grabbing the camera I returned to the dock only to find that the UFO didn't wait around for me.
Darn it! I should have just stayed there and treasure every second with my close encounter of the fist kind.
