This massive ship, covered with bright white lights, hovered over the water passing my tent and stopped to hover 30 ft . away from meA little about myself... I don't drink or smoke and I don't do drugs...I am in my early 40's and have a daughter so we often go to my grandfather's cottage in the summer. I've been going there with my family since I was 4 years old.This ocurred at our cottage 45 min from Ottawa at Innisville on the Mississippi River. I sometimes sleep outside in the tent because I like the outdoors and the sound of the water puts me to sleep...this particular night the people next door were playing loud Elvis music and I liked it, so I listened until approx 1:30am. Just as the music stopped, I lay awake for a few minutes (I had a sharp throbing pain in my arm that wouldn't go away) and then I heard a low whispy sound outside my tent.(almost like a hot air balloon but the pitch was lower and more consistent) The reflection of light that shone on my tent was moving very slowly. Usually when cars go by, the shadows and reflections from headlights move very fast. I thought it was strange, so I got up and looked out the tent mesh window (I kept it open because the moon was full that night and all the stars were very bright) (saw the Northern lights earlier) When I looked out the window I couldn't believe what I was seeing...this was a massive ship (very tall, wide and tubular) completely covered by bright white lights (8 ft away from me) It was a beautiful display of white light (looked like large light bulbs all over it) it started moving very slowly over the water passing my tent, so of course I ran to the other side of my tent to see where it was going. It kept going until it was half way to the neighbours cottage (30 ft.)and stopped and just hovered over the water for some time...I just watched (this is something so unbelievable to see and I didn't know what to do) This was massive and it also had additional tube lighting in which white light circled (travelled) around the ship. My reaction was to get closer to it, so I unzipped my tent and ran outside towards it.(I don't know how other people would react but I was so excited and I wanted to make contact) Then, suddenly, with a low sound, it completely disappeared leaving a sharp white light from where I stood and left a trail of light all the way to the stars (it looked like a star in the sky at that point) This trail of white light stayed for a few seconds before the whole thing disappeared) I kept watching this star because I was totally amazed...a few seconds later I saw that star zip across the sky in a sharp straight green line to another star. I will never forget that night. I used to laugh when I saw pictures etc. of flying objects and aliens. Now, I am convinced that there definately is life beyond our planet.(and a little nervous about the alien part) I could hardly sleep and was a little nervous to tell everyone in the morning because I thought they'd think I was nuts! While I was telling my sister in the cottage, my mother said that she was glad someone else saw it. She saw what looked like a ship with windows just outside her window around the same time that morning. She said she was lying down and couldn't sleep (the music was keeping her up) and out of nowhere she saw what at fi! rst look ed like shooting stars but then she realized that they were shooting in all directions and there were many of them. Then she was staring at lights and windows of what she describes as a ship or building. Anyway, for the next few days we were both in shock. I'm sure she'll never forget this either. I was a little worried about my mom because she's 78 and was really shaken up about it. She didn't want to go back to the cottage to sleep.It's strange because for the last few nights prior to this incident, my neighbour had been hearing strange sounds like a hot air balloon but never looked out of her window. She, and her partner also heard a baby crying at 3:00am that woke them and when they looked out the window, she saw nothing. I always walk in the water as it has very shallow rapids and I noticed this summer that some of the very heavy rock had been moved (it didn't move when we had a flood several years ago and I wondered how it had moved) This was a particular spot that I used to sit in and I thought it was strange. Maybe related, maybe not, but it was close to the spot where the ship had been hovering.((NUFORC Note: Date may be approximate. PD))
