Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Carlington Heights, Ontario, Canada, on August 1965, at 2100, a man named Harris and his woman friend were parked by an underground reservoir when they saw an object with 4 searchlights on the bottom slowly descend to within 15-20 ft of the reservoir. Then a sliding door opened and one, then three figures were visible standing in the doorway. The figures were in silhouetted, dark, and shiny, and after 15 minutes the witnesses drove away.

Albert Rosales indicates as source Louis J. Normandin for Apro.

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The web site indicates that in August 1965, at 21:00, in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, a man and a woman parked by an underground reservoir. An object with four searchlights descended, sliding door opens, and three figures were visible in the doorway.

The website comments: "An object was observed. Occupants of the craft were seen. One object was observed by two experienced witnesses at a lake for over 15 minutes (Harris). Three silhouetted beings were seen."

Points to consider:

See the list of issues below: the information is insufficient to make a sure assessment of the case, regretably. For example, it is impossible to discard that this was an helicopter.
