Like a second edition of the famed "flying saucers," strange meteor-like objects have been reportedly seen flying through the sky in all parts of Nova Scotia for the last week.
Early yesterday morning one turned up again streaking over Halifax in plain view of two policemen--Sergeant Gerald Bishop and Constable J. Gerrard.
Descriptions furnished by those who claim to have watched the brief appearances of the "whatizit’s" have ranged from "a blue ball of flame" to "a bright green object," like a football trailed by a bright red tail.
This strange photograph, snapped on the Crow River in Ontario, is a mystery to photographers. It is all that was recorded by the camera of a large purple globe, one of a series seen submerging in the Crow River. Was it a spaceship?
The photograph in question, was forwarded by J. D. MacNeill, 101 Latimer Avenue, Toronto 12, Ontario. It was taken, Mr. MacNeill reports, by his uncle, while fishing on the Crow River in Northern Ontario. Mr. MacNeill quotes his uncle as follows:
"Last Saturday, August 16, 1947, when I had finished my chores, here at the camp, I decided to go into Timmins with my friend, Roy Simpson, to see a movie. Timmins is about 15 miles from our present location, so we decided to go by car, instead of waiting for the company bus. We left at 8:30 and after driving for about ten minutes the car stalled, leaving us stranded in the middle of a deserted and open stretch of country. We tinkered with the motor for a half-hour but couldn't get it to start again. So we started to walk back to camp.
"It was then that we both witnessed an unusual sight in the growing darkness that I still find hard to believe and vaguely know how to describe. It seemed like a huge globe of purplish light that tore across the eastern sky and disappeared into the surrounding hills. It was followed by yet another that was much closer and travelling at a slower speed. I could hardly make out the details, but it looked like a round object that had a number of large portholes on its sides.
''That was all we saw but it was enough for us. We got back to camp and arranged for a truck to tow the stalled car back to camp. Roy and I never mentioned what we saw to anyone in case we might be called crazy.
"The next day was a Sunday [17th] and no work was to be done. So, around three o'clock that afternoon I went down to Crow River to do some fishing and brought my camera with me. It was then that I saw those self-same objects circling about the lake, but travelling at a much lower speed. I don't know how to express my feelings when I saw them again; it struck me, somehow, as being weird and uncanny, like something from another world. At any rate, they circled closer to the lake, emitting a high-pitched whining noise. My senses came back to me and I pulled out my camera and tried to take shots.
"I took numerous snaps but later these failed to turn out. Finally the objects eased their speed and at intervals of about two minutes between them, they hit the lake and sank about 100 yards from where I was standing. The first snap I took failed to focus properly, but the second one turned out excellently as the object hit the water.
"I waited for more than an hour hoping to see them again, but they failed to make an appearance. Since then I have not seen them once, nor have I heard comments about them from the boys here at the camp. These enclosed photos are the only evidence I have of their existence. What they were, I have no idea, nor can I even guess what was their reason for appearing for such a short time.”
The Annales Laurissenses indeed contain an entry for the year 776 which reads as such:
"...and the same day, while they (the Saxons) were preparing for another assault against the Christians who were living in the castle, the glory of God manifested itself above the church inside the fortress. Those who were watching in the square outside - many of which still live today - said that they saw something resembling two large flaming shields of reddish color moving above the church itself."
Unfortunately, even if the Lorsch Codex does contain some miniatures for initials, it does not contain our beautiful world-wide-web illustrations. These must have come from elsewhere.
