UFO sighting interesting, memorable

It was in September or October of 1958 or 1959 that we saw a silver UFO.

To the Editor,

Re: Secret shared after 45 years, Aug. 25.

I was very interested in this story about the UFO.

It was in September or October of 1958 or 1959 that we saw a silver UFO. We were watching the geese flying south as well as waiting for my son to come home from school for his lunch.

We were very fortunate to be able to grab binoculars and see the UFO clearly. This was a shiny silver colour and had scalloped edges to it. No noise coming from it at all and it was following the coastline down towards Nanaimo.

My husband passed the news on to a friend or two who told him his wife was crazy, so he had better not tell anyone else. Never did pass on the sighting.

My mom was there to see it as well as myself and two sons. My sons were six and three and both remember it clearly. A neighbour up the beach saw it as well. So interesting.
