Their reporting of the apparition had been perplexing to authorities. Out of a "bright light" in the forest, the women reported, would step a "beautiful young woman." Seen to be simply dressed and without coat or gloves in the cold of winter.The phenomenon would not go away nor be restricted to Canada as the reporting spread across an unfathomable distance and with impressive consequences.
