The witness writes:

"My story takes place around 1975 or 1976 I was maybe around 13 or 14 years old at the time of my sighting of an UFO. My parent's lived on a farm just 8 mile south of Oak Lake Manitoba at the time. Not far from the Oak Lake Beach. No one lives there now on that farm. I will describe what I saw that night as best I can. I told my parents what I saw that night next morning. Can not remember the night or date of my sighting, because I was told never to speak of such things back then. Here goes. It was a full moon that night and my younger brother and I wanted to rig up a tent outside to sleep in. We made a tent structure out of clear vapour plastic like you use to cover the inside a building walls. It was very late at night, and I woke up for some reason. I saw this shape hovering over the Maple tree tops to the south direction. It was a bright white colour shaped like a large egg, It was half the size of the full moon shining directly behind the object slightly over to the west of it, and this object shape just hovered there then moved away from me in southward direction and just disappeared. Just seeing this strange light terrified me and I couldn't move. That's all I can remember of that night out on my parents farm. "
