Vancouver Island, Canada UFO
On October 8, 1981, around 11:00 A.M., Hannah McRoberts, her husband, and their daughter were taking a break at a service area near Kelsey Bay on Vancouver Island's East Coast. While enjoying their pause, they observed a cloud passing over a mountain peak, creating the illusion of an erupting volcano emitting a massive plume of vapor. They found the sight amusing and decided to capture it with a photograph. Several days later, upon developing the photos, they made an unexpected discovery. One of the photographs revealed a disc-shaped object in the sky. They were astonished because they couldn't recall seeing anything unusual in the sky when taking the picture. Seeking answers, they reached out to David Dodge, the director of the Vancouver Planetarium. After examining the photograph, Dodge was intrigued by this unusual image. He then contacted ufologist David Powell for a comprehensive analysis, but no evidence of tampering could be found. The case piqued the interest of Richard F. Haines, a retired NASA scientist turned prominent ufologist. Haines conducted a thorough examination of the negative and, like the others, could not identify any signs of manipulation. His findings were included in the scientific report of the Sturrock Panel, adding further intrigue to this mysterious event.
