Vanderhoof, British Columbia, Canada; Winter 1967

Name: sandra Lajeunesse

Date of Sighting: winter 1967

Location of Sighting: 5 miles south of Vanderhoof bc Weneeze BC

Number of UFO(s), including the Color(s), Size(s) and Shape(s): 1. It looked like a large bright ball. the sky was jet black and it just appeared from nowhere.

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): Appeared and then just sat there for a few seconds and then a quick dart towards me, then stopped. Then I lost track.

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): I used to live in North Delta B C and was used to seeing the large search lights from the airport in Richmond in the 50’s and early 60’s before moving to Vanderhoof. This sudden brilliant light did not look like any light that could be made from a searchlight or large flashlight etc.. Plus it appeared suddenly. I didn’t stick around to look at it I was so scared.

Further Description of Sighting: It was astoundingly bright. I was in my car making a left hand turn onto my parents access road to our house that was about 600 yards down the access road. As I turned left I had about 100 feet to go before turning left again onto the access road.

Suddenly from nowhere this large light appeared. It had an orangish hue. It moved suddenly towards me and then stopped. I was so scared, I hit the gas in the car and I’m sure literally flew down the road to my parents house. I didn’t even really stop the car before I jumped from it and ran into the house.

I screamed at my Dad about what I saw and he went outside, but by then couldn’t see anything. One strange thing. I was barely 18 at the time and didn’t drink. One night I came home about 10 Pm. My parents were waiting for me as I told them I was on my way home in a few minutes.

Later on my parents could see car lights sitting at the top of our access road. My Dad finally walked up to see who was up there and what they were doing. He was shocked to see that it was me, sound asleep in the car, with the motor running and the headlights on.

I don’t remember a thing after I turned onto the access road. So what happened to me? Same spot as the UFO encounter. This is the gospel truth. I was always afraid to report it before. I am now 76.
