Mrs Florida Malboeuf can't sleep any more!


Mrs. Florida Malboeuf, aged 58, of the 6420th of Casgrain street, in Montreal, is deeply traumatized. You would be with less. In this Thursday of the last 6 January, rather insomniac, Mrs. Malboeuf sat at her window. It is 1 hour and 30 minutes of the morning. Suddenly, what does she see? A kind of big plate or rather a large oyster, 15 feet in diameter, landing on the roof of one of the opposite houses (more precisely the 6399th of Casgrain street, Burelle corner).

She rubs her eyes, pinches herself to see whether she is dreaming. But she must surrender to reality: she sees what she sees. And this it is not all. From this silver-gray apparatus equipped with headlights at its base, from this flying saucer (for there is no more doubt that it is one, Mrs. Malboeuf sees two strange beings 6 feet and 5 inches of size come out, dressed of a pale suit, without belt and very tight. These "beings from space" do not seem to weigh more than 25 pounds each one so light is their walk. They advance towards the edge of the roof, look in the street, then towards the sky. They reinstate their apparatus now and disappear as they came. The whole, from the landing to takeoff, did not last a minute.

"I was not interested in the flying saucers," Mrs. Malboeuf said. "I didn't even believe in it at all. This event upset me so much that I of would have much preferred never not to have seen that..."

It was however as it is told, something amazing. It is understood that at that hour, the dog of a neighbor started to howl, the owner of the animal unable to calm it. Nevertheless worried to have been victim of a nasty trick, Mrs. Malboeuf hesitated to call the police. She only this that a few hours later when her son André, aged 25 years, went up on the roof of the house which received this weird visit to have the surprise of his life there: the discovery of a circle of 15 feet in diameter of molten snow and ice. Mrs. Malboeuf also called in Dorval where it was admitted that a strange object slipping by from west to east was seen that night, in the sky of Montreal at approximate of 800 miles per hour. Moreover, four or five other people called in Dorval to confirm the phenomenon.
