About twenty years ago, a friend and I were heading to Ottawa, driving at first perpendicular to the Ottawa river, when we both spotted a cigar-shaped
clylinder flying in front of us at eye level about two hundred feet distance. It seemed noiseless, (we were in highway traffic though), and we could
not see any markings whatsoever, nor visible mechanisms or windows of any kind. It was colored light army green or camo. The damned thing looked
like what we took for a huge missile. It was heading in the same direction we were about to go, only it was close to our shore as it flew along the
river. It was difficult to gage the speed, but it didn't seem to be flying at more than 100 km/hour (60mph). Surely, unless we were under attack,
this could not be a missile?
I just checked the spot on Google Earth and I wish I knew how to screen capture from it, but I don't know how to yet. However we were at 161 feet
elevation, and the river is at 145 above sea level, so it was flying low, about 15 to 18 feet above the water.
We each called the airport, army base, tv stations and basically we guessed we were written off as nut cases. However because the tv stations showed
no interest we thought it odd, unless of course they were told ahead of time to simply report all calls. The airport said they had nothing on radar.
We both came to the conclusion that because of the apparent indifference of the army base, that it was some kind of military exercise to test some
system. Honeywell had a plant nearby, so who knows?
