™The color of the machine was like a brushed stainless steel. It was rough and you could see while it was revolving that it was sort of grooved all around; you could see kind of grooves, they were darker grey....a dark grey...like it had been hot at one time, like steel that gets hot and cools off."
Farmer Edwin Fuhr
"Something was there and I doubt it was a hoax. There's no indication anything had been wheeled in or out and Mr. Fuhr seemed genuinely scared."
Royal Canadian Mounted Police Constable Ron Morier
In 1974 a farmer in the Canadian prairies was swathing his family field when he came across what he initially believed to be 5 domed hunting blinds parked in the tall grass next to a pond.
As he approached the objects in the tall grass on foot to confront whomever was responsible, he suddenly realized the objects were spinning at a very high rate of speed, and hovering a foot off the ground.
After a number of minutes at close proximity, the terrified farmer retreated to his now unresponsive swather, and spent the next extended period of time trapped to his seat in terror, watching the objects spin silently next to the pond.
Eventually the objects lifted off in a stepped formation, momentarily hanging in the air above him. After a purge of vapour, the objects raced out of sight at an incredible speed.
Local RCMP investigated the scene and filed a report which concluded the site was no hoax.
Within a week the timid farmer and his family suffered a media blitz and became an unwilling global celebrity. Thousands flocked to the family farm to see the site by any means possible. Scientists, engineers, energy companies, industrialists, local community members, religious members and all manner of quacks were part of the human bouquet that participated in the siege on the family.
Eventually, the extended family helped form a barrier of respectful privacy between Edwin and the curious mobs.
The story cooled, but the truth of the events remained uncontested
37 years later, the farmer at the center of it all grants an interview and goes into great detail about what he saw, and the insanity that followed once the media became involved. His story about what happened that day has never changed.
Using models, reenactments, family photographs, historical documents, interviews with many involved, and a visit to the actual landing site (still reportedly radioactive), there has never been a more robust access to material on of the 1974 Edwin Fuhr UFO encounter.
The project title is derived from Edwins description of the texture visually present on the upper portion of the objects.
Recently, without fanfare, some of our most distinguished space and aeronautic experts gathered to exchange data on Unidentified Flying Objects - and their confidential reports show that many scientists have seen aerial phenomena that could only be labeled UFOs

i recall watching this particular incident on a program. It was regarding ufo's that leave behind evidence of one type or another.

There was also an incident somewhat like this on the same show froma sighting incident in Kansas I think..
Quite a few similar cases out there mate and Professor Michael Swords brings up another incident in this blog post - he also mentions Fuhr interviews with CUFOS and Timmerman that would certainly be worth a listen.

Careful what you ask for
"Most scientists have never had the occasion to confront evidence concerning the UFO phenomenon. To a scientist, the main source of hard information (other than his own experiments' observations) is provided by the scientific journals. With rare exceptions, scientific journals do not publish reports of UFO observations. The decision not to publish is made by the editor acting on the advice of reviewers. This process is self-reinforcing: the apparent lack of data confirms the view that there is nothing to the UFO phenomenon, and this view (prejudice) works against the presentation of relevant data."

Check your PMs. I sent one a couple of days ago.
Over a period of a dozen years, John Timmerman ran a traveling UFO exhibit for the Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS) that appeared in malls from Seattle to Dallas to Nova Scotia, and from Guam to Puerto Rico. In the process he spoke to hundreds of people from around the world who came in off the street and described their own UFO sightings and experiences. Timmerman ended up with nearly 1,200 taped interviews, firsthand testimony with the lingering taste of truth.
Their stories present the UFO phenomenon in all its raw glory, describing lights, disks, cigars, boomerangs, and objects where the structure was… well… indescribable; close encounters of all kinds, landing traces, physiological effects, vehicle interference, entities, radar cases, jet scrambles, crashed disks, morphing objects; and cases of such concentrated weirdness they’ll just make you shake your head, leaving you puzzled and uncomfortable — if not totally floored. A mighty strange universe is providing this entertainment.
