The #1 Paranormal News Site
So 37 years on, here’s an extensive interview with the chap -he’s never changed his story and goes into quite remarkable detail about what happened
that day, the unknown objects that visited his farm and the ensuing media frenzy.
In 1974 a farmer in the Canadian prairies was swathing his family field when he came across what he initially believed to be 5 domed hunting
blinds parked in the tall grass next to a pond.
As he approached the objects in the tall grass on foot to confront whomever was responsible, he suddenly realized the objects were spinning at a very
high rate of speed, and hovering a foot off the ground.
After a number of minutes at close proximity, the terrified farmer retreated to his now unresponsive swather, and spent the next extended period of
time trapped to his seat in terror, watching the objects spin silently next to the pond.
Eventually the objects lifted off in a stepped formation, momentarily hanging in the air above him. After a purge of vapour, the objects raced out of
sight at an incredible speed.
Local RCMP investigated the scene and filed a report which concluded the site was no hoax.
Within a week the timid farmer and his family suffered a media blitz and became an unwilling global celebrity. Thousands flocked to the family farm to
see the site by any means possible. Scientists, engineers, energy companies, industrialists, local community members, religious members and all manner
of quacks were part of the human bouquet that participated in the siege on the family.
Eventually, the extended family helped form a barrier of respectful privacy between Edwin and the curious mobs.
The story cooled, but the truth of the events remained uncontested
37 years later, the farmer at the center of it all grants an interview and goes into great detail about what he saw, and the insanity that followed
once the media became involved. His story about what happened that day has never changed.
Using models, reenactments, family photographs, historical documents, interviews with many involved, and a visit to the actual landing site (still
reportedly radioactive), there has never been a more robust access to material on of the 1974 Edwin Fuhr UFO encounter.
The project title is derived from Edwins description of the texture visually present on the upper portion of the objects.
