FEBRUARY 4, 1978, SCARBOROUGH, ONTARIO, CANADA, A STUDENT:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

In Scarborough, Ontario, Canada, in February 1978 or on February 4, 1978, at 10:00 p.m., a young student was out walking when he heard a wavering sharp siren type sound.

Looking up, he sighted a saucer-shaped object hovering close to the ground. Through a transparent section on the saucer's dome, he saw several moving figures inside.

This sparse information apparently comes from a 1979 Canadian ufology book by John Musgrave.
