Hi Errol and List.

I have been reading a great many ufo "crash" reports in recent
weeks. I have noticed that it has been assumed, in some reports,
that because the craft has/have been seen to go into a body of
water, they have crashed.

Last night I reviewed the Shag Harbour incident which was
covered by the Sightings show a couple of years ago. It seemed
that the craft was able to travel under water for quite some

Judging by the number of sightings of unknowns going into Lake
Ontario, which is where our observation team does most research,
should we not consider the possibility that these craft are
perfectly able to function under water as they are above water?

So, could it be that these so-called crashes are just
submersions, as we term them?

One night, back in May 1997, I observed and filmed 15 unknowns
lining up and going into the lake in the space of 40 minutes.
These were very organized in their approaches and gave no
indication of crashing.

On January 20th. 1998, between 19.15 hrs and 20.15 hrs. I
observed 7 submersions from the north shore.

On the evening of March 16th, 1998, we observed 6 submersions
from the north shore of the lake.

On 23rd March, 1998, between 19.25 hrs and 20.00 hrs. we
observed 4 submersions.

On June 5th. 1998, we observed 13 submersions in the space of 10
minutes. At one time there were 3 Orbs visibly lining up to

On June 22nd. 1998, observing from the south shore, east of the
Niagara River, there were 3 submersions in the space of 20
minutes. We saw these at much closer range due to our location
on the US shore.

Over the past 16 months we have observed and documented many
submersions. I was fortunate enough to film quite a few of the
events, and one such submersion can be found in the VIDEO
section of ORBWATCH.

Descriptions of these events can be found in the REPORTS section
of ORBWATCH. The most recent events are in the UPDATES section

Field research has been much hampered by very poor weather
conditions over the spring and summer here in Southern Ontario.
Fog, haze and mist have made it difficult to see any distance
and filming has been nigh on impossible.


Last week our ORBWATCH team spent a very interesting evening
with Hugh Cochrane. Hugh is the author of 'Gateway To Oblivion -
the Great Lakes Bermuda Triangle'. I showed him video that I had
made over the last 16 months and he compared the events to those
that have been seen and photographed since the early 1970's.

We were very grateful to Mr. Cochrane for a most enjoyable
exchange of information, and look forward to further meetings
with him.


Best wishes.

Jennifer Jarvis.

 One prize, one goal...
 One golden glance of what should be."
