The McRoberts Vancouver Island UFO Photograph, October 1981
Perhaps one of the most fascinating, not least due to the photographic evidence, is the Vancouver Island picture (which is one of the locations in our previously mentioned 1954 IFF code incident).
On this particular evening, at a little after 6 pm in early October 1981, Hannah McRoberts was on vacation on Vancouver Island. During this time, she would take multiple pictures of the mountain ranges and woodlands.
According to McRoberts, one specific picture she took she noticed a strange cloud around the top of the mountain similar to a “volcano issuing steam”. The rest of the group she was with didn’t see anything unusual and so she simply forgot the incident. That was until she had the photographs developed several weeks later.
When she focused in on the strange cloud her attention immediately went to the right of it. There, was an apparent solid, circular object. You can view that picture below.
The picture soon came to the attention of UFO researchers and investigators. It would also come to the attention of a member of the Vancouver McMillan Planetarium, David Powell. Powell would ultimately, through several channels, get the photograph to a UFO group in Arizona.
Essentially, their investigation of the picture would ultimately lead them to believe Hannah McRoberts’ picture was a “legitimate classical type UFO photo”.
One thing we should take note of before moving on is the location of the McRoberts photograph, a spot (relatively) a stone’s throw away from Mount Rainer, which was the location of the famous Kenneth Arnold sighting from the summer of 1947.
