Abstract: A group of over fifty people gathered to watch from the shore of a lake in Canada as an oval-shaped UFO sat on the ice and snow of its frozen surface. Six men on snowmobiles rode out onto the ice toward the object. "One of the pursuers fired shots at the UFO and the witnesses heard distinct 'clunks' as the bullets struck its metal surface. The UFO then lifted straight up and quickly moved away from the area."

 

Comments: Depending upon wind conditions, distance from the witnesses to the UFO, and the loudness of the gun's explosion, it may or may not be possi­ble to hear such a ricochet noise.
