Sighting Reports Previous to 1990


Woman Sees Object Fly Into Water. Object Emerged From Water 10 Minutes Later


Wheatley is Located along the Northwest Shores of Lake Erie


Date of Sighting: Summer, 1969 (Exact Date Unknown)

Time of Sighting: Evening (Exact Time Unknown)

Date Reported: December 1, 2006

Duration of Sighting: 10 Minutes

Location of Sighting: Wheatley, Ontario, Canada (About 33 Miles Southeast of Detroit, Michigan)

Latitude: 42.1 Degrees North

Longitude: 82.45 Degrees West

Number of Witnesses: One

Weather: Unknown


Description (In Witness's Own Words): This was told to me by my now dead mother. She was a realtor & waiting to show a cottage east of Wheatley. It got dark & she saw lights in the sky get close & then enter the water. She said the water glowed & then about 10 min. later then [sic-the] water started to glow brighter & the UFO came out of the water & flew off without a sound. I know the general area—it was high cliffs & is fairly remote to other cottages.


Investigator's Notes: This is a "he says she says" sighting in that the witness has relayed information from someone else. (The witness was the mother of the person who reported the sighting.) The sighting must have had a dramatic effect on the witness. Reports of objects entering and leaving the water or vice versa have been reported in the UFO literature, but are not commonplace. Presumably the object must have entered and left Lake Erie given the proximately [sic-proximity] of the water to the witness [sic-witness’s] location. I have been unable to contact the witness to obtain more details about the sighting.
