Hello from (Names Removed) sent me
your name and address and indication that you would be interested in my story
of [a] craft hovering over the water on [the] evening of March 7, 2001.
So I thought, why not.
This is what I recall.
already outside, down at the water’s edge at Strathcona Park. This park is
less than a mile from where I live in Ottawa, Ontario. The water is part of
the Ottawa River, which runs right through the city of Ottawa, in the south
Anyways, I recall standing at the
water’s edge in the late evening. It’s already dark out. I don’t recall
seeing anyone else nearby. From my left, I recall hearing a low rumbling
noise; noise came very slowly in my direction, following the course of the
I recall seeing a HUGE craft,
about [the] size of ½ [a] football field approximately in size. It was
“floating” about 1,000 feet up in the air, grey in
“floating” very slowly, almost silent except for this very low rumbling
noise. There appeared to be lots of small windows on [the]
top section. I remember I was feeling very much in awe and very
impressed by the HUGE, MASSIVE SIZE. I wasn’t scared at all. I “knew” I was
safe; I “knew” I wouldn’t get hurt or harmed in any way by this CRAFT. In
total, I watched it for about 10 minutes. I don’t recall whether it just
“floating” past till it was out of site or what. But my last recollection is
of me looking up into the sky almost directly above, 1,000 ft. in to sky and
seeing this HUGE CRAFT and feeling SAFE and impressed by the MASSIVE size. If
I close my eyes, I can still picture the craft in vivid detail in my mind’s
eye. I have tried to sketch it for you, but my attempt doesn’t really do the
actual CRAFT proper justice.
I did have something else to tell you
concerning this craft. A male friend of mine, J., met up with me the
following day or so later. Like myself, J. is also very much interested in U.F.O.
material. I told him of my experience of [the] evening
of March 7, 2007. As I was telling him, his very eager manner indicated he had
something to tell me.
J. had been, about 1 hour after dark
on [the] evening of March 7, 2001, on
which spans the Ottawa River. Now Cummings Bridge is about 1 mile up river to
my left. J. said he was standing on the bridge, used by cars and pedestrians
alike. He said he saw lights flashing in the sky directly above the water
about a few hundred feet in the air. There was still a lot of ice on the water. These
lights were flashing and moving down river, very slowly. (They would have
been moving in my direction.)
J. said he watched the lights slowly
move down river till they disappeared. He didn’t follow them; he says now he
wishes he had. J. said he went back to the same spot on the bridge in the
morning light and
noticed that the ice was broken up directly down the middle of the river, and
as if it had been cut by a knife. Not usual in ice-breakup with chunks
floating willy-nilly about. But a very exact, straight cut through
the ice, straight
down the course of the river, probably the same path the lights had taken.
My friend J. and I both surmise we
witnessed the same craft, J. from the bridge, me an hour or so later at the
I remember thinking, a few days after
this sighting, that I was “supposed” to be at [the]
water’s edge that evening. This is something I don’t generally do, go
down to the water at night alone, ‘cause this is unlit
is totally dark down there at the water’s edge. I generally only go down
there during the day so I can see where I’m going and not fall in the water.
My friend (Name Removed) did ask me
what kind of craft I thought it might be. “Mother ship” immediately came to
mind. I had the feeling I was “supposed” to witness this craft. And also, and
this might sound crazy, but it’s how I felt and still do feel.
I have a feeling “they” knew I was
witnessing their CRAFT. And this isn’t the LAST time. This is only the
beginning. That’s OK with me.
Also, several weeks later, I was on [the] balcony [of my]
2nd floor apartment, on a
clear blue sky day, middle of [the] afternoon.
I saw for maybe 2-3 seconds, at eye level, I’m standing up, I’m just over 6’
tall, about halfway between my building and Strathcona Park area, a
CRAFT heading towards me, yellow in color. I have
also included a sketch of this craft. This would have been about [the] first or second week in April, perhaps a bit earlier.
there you have it. I do hope this info is useful. If you have any questions,
please feel free to contact me.
you publish this story, please publish it under the name of: Johanna
Johanna, the name
shown here, is not the witness’s real name.
I have removed any
and everyone’s personal information from this entire letter.
