October 1977--UFO Comes into Close Proximity with Vehicle near Day's Corner
At approximately twelve thirty in the morning on 1 October, Rosemary Anger of Bedeque, Prince Edward Island, called the Summerside Detachment of the RCMP to report that while en route to her home she and her two daughters had observed a UFO at Day's Corner, at approximately 11:50 P.M.
[Note by CF: The UFO was seen close to midnight on 9-30 and reported 35 minutes past midnight on 10-01]
At the time of the sighting, it was raining quite heavily. Rosemary and her eldest daughter, Kim Greencorn, age twenty-one, noticed a lighted object ahead of their vehicle, which came close enough that they were able to get a good look at it. Rosemary said the object appeared to be similar to two lampshades inside a wide V, with the light from the lampshades brighter than that from the V. Encircling this object was a sort of glow and, over the top, a mist.
The object passed over her vehicle at a height of approximately 50 ft. (15 m) when there was "a sort of boom" and then a loud scratching sound. Then the object disappeared from view. This sighting lasted only a few seconds. The youngest daughter did not see the object, but all three people heard the sound.
Several constables patrolled the area of the sighting and found nothing. This sighting, though brief, is interesting because it occurred during a heavy rainfall, which is not a popular time for UFO sightings. The Day's Corner UFO was well lit so it stood out despite the poorer visibility.
