Go Back Report # 1466



April 6, 1977; Sainte-Dorothée, Quebec, Canada

7:00 PM. The witness, a woman in her thirties living on Rue Cleroux, Ste. [Dorothée] was in her kitchen when she saw a strong light come in her back window. When she raised the blind, she saw a disc-shaped object with a dazzling, pulsating white luminosity, about 35 feet in diameter. It was hovering several yards above a tree 35 feet tall. It bore a pulsating red luminous domed cupola on top without windows. Around its lower periphery revolved yellow, green, blue, and red blinking lights. She heard a buzzing sound like a huge swarm of bees. After watching the UFO for perhaps 15 seconds, she ran to her bathroom and hid. Two minutes later the noise and the light ceased. She went out on the street in front of her house where she found a 13-year-old boy, Jos Madison, pointing a carbine at the sky. The now silent disc-shaped UFO was hovering 100 feet up in a tilted position. Jos did not fire his gun, but called to his friend Alair Narby, also 13 years old. Jos's two sisters also joined them and watched the UFO, which was now moving from place to place above the houses by jumps too rapid to observe. It then stopped in place for more than five minutes, during which Mrs. Madison came out and also observed it. Now after sunset, the UFO moved off toward the Nadon River, where it again dashed back and forth. The two boys followed it to the Nadon field by the river, in which there was a temporary pond formed by melted snow. They saw the UFO approach the river, flying very low, and it skimmed over the pond producing a loud sizzle of boiling water. It then landed behind a slight rise. It then emitted a very strident sharp sound. After four or five minutes a humanoid being appeared, visible from the waist up because of the terrain. He had a helmeted head, shiny red and metallic shoulders, and was seen from the rear. He appeared in front of the object. Above his head was a red light, apparently floating in midair. He looked to the right and left, then bent down and was not seen again. Shortly afterward the disc rose, lit up, and at an altitude of about 65 feet resumed its erratic movements. Darkness had fallen and the boys returned home, finally running because it seemed to them the UFO was following them. They temporarily suffered partial deafness, perhaps from the UFO's noise. At least three families on the block experienced total interference with their TV reception during this time. At the landing site different tracks and what appeared to be footprints were found.
