Darker than Black is a 2007 Japanese anime series created by Tensai Okamura. Set in modern Japan, the narrative focuses on how ten years prior to the events of the series, a mysterious spatial anomaly known as “Heaven’s Gate” appeared in South America, shortly followed by the opening of “Hell’s Gate” in Tokyo altering the sky and wreaking havoc on the landscape. During this time, people possessing various special abilities emerged, each capable of different supernatural feats—these are known as contractors. The series follows the exploits of agents Hei and his comrades of the Syndicate organization operating in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo and their mission to uncover the mysteries of the Hell’s Gate.
A side-story of Darker than Black, also called Episode 26, that takes place during the events of Kuro no Keiyakusha.
The Syndicate has another job for Hei and his team. This assignment involves the sought after possessions of a dead contractor, which are believed to have been buried beneath a cherry tree. Meanwhile, Misaki Kirihara and her team plan a trip to the Cherry Blossom festival.
In August 2013, witnesses 1, 2 and 3 were driving on a remote logging road in Ontario, Canada. They had just finished hunting, and were on their way back to camp.
What followed is one of the most interesting close-up encounters with an unidentified object in recorded history. The primary witness is an engineer and has contracts with the Department of Defense, something that has been verified by investigators Phil Leech and Robert Powell.
We spoke with Powell, now with the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU), about the case, and why he believes it’s so compelling. The primary witness and witness #3 both went on the record to investigators – their testimony, along with a video they recorded, is covered in today’s episode.
We previously uploaded a video overview of this Case 74282 that showed interview highlights and an introduction by MUFON Director of Research Robert Powell. This is the full interview from this case, where three men on a hunting trip in Ontario, Canada, have a close encounter with a barbell-shaped UFO. Witness interviews and CGI of the object created by Witness #1. Case investigated by Indiana MUFON State Section Director Philip Leech.
