About 42 hours before the Riverdale couple saw objects over Grey Mountain
on May 7 that was reported in the May 9, 2007 Whitehorse Star there was
another sighting in the same area.
A man had gone to the Whitehorse movie theatre to pick up his son, who had
gone to see Spiderman 3. His son was attending the late show and the movie
goers had not come out of the theatre yet. The man was waiting in his car
and the time was around midnight when the man was looking towards the east
over the far away hills to the left of Grey Mountain. There was a bright
object that appeared to be a bright star or planet just above the horizon.
Although this man has had a major UFO sighting before (FOX4 Dec 11, 1996
Giant UFO over Fox Lake) he didn’t think that this particular light was
He watched the object for about 2 minutes and thought he may have detected
some movement of the light. Then suddenly the light started rapidly
getting smaller and smaller and at the same time rising rapidly to the
right. In 2 to 3 seconds it had disappeared into the distance. Now, “that
was strange!” he thought. As far as he knows he was the only witness from
the parking lot who saw this.
Although this sighting was not reported until July 4, the exact date of
this sighting was possible to establish accurately. The witness mentioned
that the sighting occurred two to tree days prior to the Monday May 7 UFO
sighting by the couple in the Whitehorse Star article which he had read.
The witness was picking up his son at the Whitehorse movie theatre and the
son recalled that this was the night of the Spiderman 3 premiere. The son
had gone to see the late show which was finished just after midnight. The
premiere occurred on Friday, May 4. Therefore the sighting occurred just
after midnight on Saturday May 5, 2007
