This was photographed at Christmas time 1937 in Vancouver and reported a UFO incident.
Twenty one-year old Leonard Lamoureux and his brother Wilfred went to City Hall one night in 1937 to photograph the Christmas lights when they spotted a UFO. According to Leonard’s daughter, Debra DeCamillis,
THE TWO WERE SUDDENLY ASTOUNDED TO SEE A “BRIGHT BRIGHT BLUE LIGHT” DROP STRAIGHT DOWN FROM THE SKY. IT BECAME LARGER AS IT DID AND SO THEY WERE ABLE TO OBSERVE THE SOURCE OF THE LIGHT AS AN OBJECT THAT LEONARD DESCRIBED AS “TWO SAUCERS” OPEN ENDS FACING EACH OTHER, GLOWING BRIGHT BLUE. THE OBJECT THEN MOVED “DEAD STRAIGHT” HORIZONTALLY ACROSS THE SKY. WHEN IT JUST APPEARED TO CLEAR THE FLAGPOLE ON THE ROOF OF THE CITY HALL IT CAME TO AN ALMOST DEAD STOP AND LEONARD CLICKED THE SHUTTER ON THE CAMERA. THE OBJECT THEN SHOT STRAIGHT BACK UP INTO THE SKY. “THEY NEVER SEEN ANYTHING FLY SO FAST!” THIS SCARED THEM TO DEATH AND THEY RAN FROM THE SCENE. THE OBJECT MADE NO SOUND.
BC has had more than its fair share of UFO sightings over the years, such as the one photographed by eleven year-old David Knutsen in Surrey in 1974 and a slew of sightings in the Lower Mainland in 1957. UFO BC has compiled dozens of news articles and eyewitness reports dating back to 1897. In August that year the World reported that a cigar-shaped “ball of fire or airship” had been seen by many, including one of their reporters, over the course of a week. One person suggested it was the “Klondike star pointing the way to untold wealth.”
40 years later in 1977 Petrozavodsk, Russia it was photographed and also reported as a UFO incident.
Discussed in this article is about the celestial phenomenon that in the early Soviet reports has been called “the phenomenon of 20 September 1977”. He later became known as “the Petrozavodsk phenomenon”, “Petrozavodsk incident”, the “Petrozavodsk miracle” and, of course, the most common – “the Petrozavodsk phenomenon”.
On the territory of Russia and countries of the former Soviet Union in the “Petrozavodsk phenomenon” typically include developments in the North-West of Russia not only directly 20 September 1977, but in the period from September 1977 to February 1978.
The rest of the world “Petrozavodsk phenomenon” is called only a number of celestial events occurred on 20 September 1977. These events were registered not only in Petrozavodsk, but also in the entire continent, from Copenhagen and Helsinki on the West to Vladivostok in the East.
So, 20 September 1977 around 4:00 to 4:10am (Moscow time) in the Northern part of the sky over Petrozavodsk and its environs observed an object which left quite a long glowing strip, which it resembled Medusa.
The earliest published report of the Petrozavodsk phenomenon was written by a TASS correspondent Nikolai Milov, who described the unidentified object as a “huge star” that “flashed in the dark sky” at about 4:00 a.m. local time, “impulsively sending sunbeams upon the Earth.” The report was published in the main Soviet press (“Pravda”, “Izvestia”, “rural life” and “socialist industry”). Preliminary data analysis at the Academy of Sciences of the USSR in 1977, showed that eyewitness accounts are complementary. It turned out that the “star”, having an initial brightness that is comparable to Venus, spread over Petrozavodsk in the form of a jellyfish, “showering the city with a multitude of very fine rays which created the image of a flood of rain, after some time the luminescent rays ceased”, “the jellyfish turned into a bright semicircle” and resumed its movement towards Onega lake.
40 years later in 2017 LA it was photographed last night and reported as a ‘SpaceX launch’
