My mother and I have seen a U.F.O. at very close range. We can identify this object as a flying object unknown to mankind.

I was seven years of age playing on our front lawn, my mother was out in the side yard hanging up the laundry on a close line. The event that was about to take place at that time is forever etched in my mind. Back in 1962, my mom, dad, little brother and I, lived in northern Manitoba, Canada on a large hobby farm. Our nearest neibour was 1/4 of a mile away. To my knowledge, nobody else in the area seen what my mom and I saw on that warm August afternoon. A slow moving object caught my attention from the corner of my eye. I looked up over the garage located across our front yard and saw a large football shaped flying craft. It was approximately 100 feet away from me, flying approximately 30 feet above the ground. The craft was approximately 20 feet wide and 10 feet high. There was no sound of a motor. This craft seemed to be very high-tech as it had no wings or engine to be seen. The occupants of the craft must have known there was life forms on the ground, namely our family. I believe they said "Hello!" with a spectacular display of lights which illuminated there craft in top to bottom (3 foot) strips of blue, green, red, yellow, and other fasinating colors. The craft changed direction as it flew over the garage from north to east. At this point my mother looked up from her cloth line and saw the slow moving craft (traveling at approximately 10 miles per hour) heading in a eastern direction. I seen this object with my own eyes...we are not alone in the universe. Perhaps there are many types of life forms from far away places roaming the sky above and walking among us. Another unexplained encounter happened during the summer of 1975 in the province of British Columbia, Canada. I was walking in a rugged open area 200 feet from the Fraser River when an unusual object caught my attention. There on the ground was a foot long cylinder and about 10 inches around with rounded ends. As I looked down at this object I noticed it's mirror-like appearance. As I looked closer I noticed there wasn't a scratch on the metal-like object. I reached down and picked up the object, it seemed to weight about 5 lbs. From that moment on until I found myself walking away from the area...I have no memory of what happened. I still search my mind today and ask myself what happened to the strange cylinder? I would have never put it back on the ground. I know I would have take! n it wit h me to find out what it was. Today, I believe that what I saw and held in my hands was a landed probe from outer space. Perhaps the same type of probes seen flying over crop circles throughout the world. Whatever I held in my hand could have had a hand in the loss of my memory. I believe it did.
