Go Back Report # 786


Two Ontario Province residents had a chance encounter with a disc-like UFO hovering close to the dark waters of Lake Ontario around June 1. The object, with rows of lights flashing around its perimeter, took off rapidly as the witnesses approached it in a motor boat.

The incident was reported to NICAP by Richard Plewman, member of an Oakville real estate firm. Plewman, a former RCAF Flight Lieutenant and pilot instructor, was cruising with a friend, Jack Grant about 2-1/2 miles offshore of Clarkson at about 10:30 p.m. As a lake search-master with 8 years experience in a power boat squadron, Plewman is a veteran boatsman.

While proceeding in a NE direction, the men noticed some lights like headlights on the water ahead. They continued talking, and approaching the lights at a moderate speed, not suspecting anything unusual. When they closed to an estimated distance of 3/4 to 1 mile, the lights slowly rose with a "swish," emitting a low "pulsating hum." Plewman and Grant could now see a disc with a bubble-type dome on top and a flat bottom, casting an oval reflection on the lake surface. A row of bright yellow lights encircled the dome, blue-green lights around the lower perimeter.

After hovering briefly, the UFO took off at high speed disappearing "Like a light bulb turned out."

Plewman said the perimeter lights clearly outlined the dark object, the colors changing from dull white to fluorescent tones as the UFO started to rise.
