Beausejour, Manitoba, Canada

UFO came from south, stopped, hovered 125m away, white light on bottom brightened. Burned area 25' diameter, radioactive soil found at spot.

A farm woman living outside of Beausejour, Manitoba, Canada (about 45 miles from Winnipeg) was sitting on her front porch at 11:30 p.m. waiting for her husband to return home. She saw a brilliant red light with a smaller blue light beside it come towards her from the south. The light lit up the ground and appeared to land. She became frightened and ran inside her house. The next morning she and her husband went out to investigate where the object had landed. They found a 30 by 50 yard semi-circular area that was still in flames. The strange fact about this case is that on June 15th the area was still smoldering, despite considerable rain having fallen in the area. Radioactive soil was found at the site.

An object was observed. Ground traces were found. Radioactivity was detected. One red disc, about 40 feet across, was observed by one female witness on a farm briefly.
