Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, on early April 1966, at 05:45 a.m., a young boy heard loud noises from outside.

Looking out, he saw three silvery discs land on a nearby field, several small men emerged from the objects and appeared to look around discussing something among themselves.

They ran back into the discs, which took off to the north at high speed.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is John Brent Musgrave, UFO Occupants and Critters.

Points to consider:

John Brent Musgrave was an astronomer who received a government grant form the Canada Council grant to study the history of the UFO phenomenon in Canada. The result was his booklet "UFO Occupants and Critters: The Patterns in Canada", currently out of print.

It contained short summaries of reports of close encounters of the third kind in Canada.

The very insufficient data, the youth of the single witness, the lack of strangeness, the unknown distance of observation, the absence of indication of any investigation, the fact that the craft were noisy, opens the door to the possibility that the boy simply saw a landing of helicopters.
