Few translation done lately.

Dear readers, I haven't posted many translation lately, been busy on assisting CSETI for the Montreal Conference with Dr. Steven Greer.

I'll be back to update and translate more of the "D" cases as soon as I can.

Thank you for you patience.

Richard Lalancette.

OCR automatic translation attempt.

While attempting to translate the police and witness statements, I came to conclusion that the quality of the scans are too poor to do a near automated translation.
I will have to postpone the translation of those documents until I find a better automatic method.

This phenomenon remains unexplained.

Summary
Observation of a luminous rectangle.
Detailed descriptionOn January 9, 1994 around 19:30, a young woman and her friend in their car observe a luminous rectangular form in the sky. Having stopped their vehicle, they observe this form which is lighted with white and red lights. Having lost sight of it, they go back in the car to find a better point of observation. They stop again and the young woman sees an egg shaped form with the same red and white lights, which seems to come in their direction. She is taken by fear and requests her companion, who did not see this last observation, to leave again as fast as possible. No explanation could be found with this quiet phenomenon which remained unexplained.

Summary
Observation of a stationary yellow ball lasting a few minutes.
Detailed descriptionOn August 11, 1993 around 3:30, a witness driving his car observes a large stationary luminous ball in the sky. This ball is sparkling yellow, rotating on itself in silence and bigger than a star. The form was described as a disc with a dome or the shape of an upside-down “mushroom”. Returning home, the witness asks his mother to observe the phenomenon. She will describes it the same way her son did. The observation lasted a few minutes before it disappeared. It does not seem that this observation could be mistaken with a shooting stars. This same evening was advertised for "shooting star night". The phenomenon observed remains unexplained.
