A week or so ago, I posted about the large number of UFOs, USOs and unexplained beings reported on or near the Ottawa River north of the city. In the Summer of 1991 a very controversial encounter took place in the Ottawa suburb of West Carleton. Below is a quick overview of the case. I have provided a link to an excellent source of documents on the case:
On August 18, 1991, West Carleton, Ontario housewife Diane Labenek was home when she heard her dogs barking. When she looked out the window to investigate, she saw a UFO-type object in a field nearby with red flames and lots of smoke. The ship then lifted up and disappeared into the trees. Diane claimed that about ten minutes after the ship left, a helicopter flew over the area where she saw the lights, and then flew over her house and vanished. Diane went to the site the next day, but found nothing and only told her husband and mother about the incident. Six months later in February of 1992, Bob Oechsler, a UFO researcher, received a package from Canada. Inside the package included secret military documents, pictures, a map, and a videotape, labeled "Guardian" with a fingerprint on it, showed the UFO that Diane had seen.
The map directed Oechsler to West Carleton, where he and another UFO researcher Graham Lightfoot, interviewed Diane and found that her sighting matched the UFO on the video. A navy physicist believes that the video is not a hoax and believes that "Guardian" stumbled onto the site accidentally. The physicist found that the UFO had to be 20 to 30 feet in length, which, according to Oechsler, is too large to be a hoax. The audio analysis of the tape only had the sound of dogs barking, probably Diane's dogs, and the craft appeared to be silent. A NASA specialist reviewed the tape and could not determine what the craft actually was. After the incident, helicopters of black, green, or maroon color were seen throughout the West Carleton area, although the military denies that the helicopters were theirs. Oechsler believes that the key to finding out what the craft really was is the mysterious individual named "Guardian". However, the documents found along with the videotape seem to cause Guardian to lose credibility, as they appeared to be about UFOs, Red China, and nuclear weapons, and that the papers appeared to be forged. Also, Oechsler found that on the video there were images of what Guardian claimed was an alien being, although it appeared to be someone in a mask. However, many still believe that the video of UFO is real, despite the questionable items that were with it. Many are certain that if "Guardian" could be found, the mystery could be explained. - unsolvedmysteries.wikia.com

NOTE: I have attempted to decipher this case over the years...I honestly cannot tell if this was an actual sighting or a hoax. I gather from the opinions expressed in the available material that the consensus is that this was most likely a fraud...but I'm not sure I completely agree with that assessment. May I suggest you use the link above and read through the evidence...it is very interesting. Lon
