100 WATCH SAUCER HOVER FOR AN HOUR
Kettle Point, Sarnia, Ontario, Canada
Date: Sunday, March 27, 1966 
100 People watch a multi-coloured saucer hover from 8 to 10 p.m. just east of the Kettle Point Indian Reserve, a few minutes south of the Sarnia/Port Huron border. The London Free Press reported that Lawrence's brother, Jeffery also spotted an object over Sarnia, but the one he saw stayed stationary for a short time, then shot across the sky at a very high speed. The Hamilton Spectator reported that a Patrolman saw one approaching Wright Patterson Air Force Base, home of Project Blue Book, the US study of flying saucers, located a few hour south of London, in Ohio.

100 Sarnia Residents Report Seeing Strange Object In Sky
SARNIA (CP) -- About 100 persons were reported to have watched a revolving object with multi-colored lights aglow hovering over the Kettle Point area near here Sunday night.
 
Lawrence Bressette, who apperatees a store on the Kettle Point Indian reserve, said a motorist first pointed out the disc-shaped object about 8 p.m. Mr. Bressette said he watched it through binoculars and could see red, blue, green and white lights flashing from it.
 
He said about 100 area residents gathered and watched the object which remained motionless for an hour before it began its slow ascent..
He said a cloud drifter in about 10 p.m., which obscured it except for periodic sightings.
 
"I've never seen anything like this," Mr. Bressette said. "We all saw it. It was about 200 or 300 feet off the ground to the east. Then it slowly begane to move up."
 
He dismissed the idea that it could have been swamp gas as was reported recently in the Detroit area.
 
An officer at Selfridge Air Base in Mount Clements, MIch., said the Canadian sighting was the fourth reported to Sunday night. The other three were seen in the Detroit area. He said no radar sightings had been obtained on any of them.
