Saturday mornings I enjoy reading the West Carlton Review, our local paper. Specifically, I can't wait to read the “Ottawa Police Service” section, which is my favorite. I don’t know how to explain it… but it is just plain hilarious! How about you judge for yourself.
UFO Sighting in Corkery (You don’t see this heading often!)
There was a UFO sighting in West Carlton. Shortly before 6 p.m. on November 10, a 911 caller reported seeing a UFO take up a hovering position somewhere between March and Vaughn Side Roads. The Object was hovering at an approximate altitude of 3,000 metres and a very bright cone of light descended from the object to the surface of the Earth.
Certain that the UFO wasn’t an airplane, the complainant advised the 911 operator that the UFO briefly dropped down to the surface before returning to its previous hovering station. Air Traffic controllers in Ottawa claimed they weren’t tracking UFOs or airplanes on radar over the West Carlton area during that time period.
Police reports concluded the UFO was the result of a film crew using a crane-operated light in and around the Hollywood district of Ashton Village. (or was it?)
