Shape: Unknown
Duration: 1 minute

Details: Buzzing UFO, not seen but heard.

I was out on my patio and heard a buzzing sound or pulsing sound and wondered where it was coming from in the building (3 story condo 130 units). The sound got louder (coming toward me I guess) until the craft passed over or near the building. At first, I thought it was a sound coming from the building and wondered what it was. But I soon realized it was not a building sound but something flying over head. When it passed over I heard a whoosh sound. I heard no conventional engine sounds at all just the buzzing or pulsing sound. There were no lights that I could see on the craft.

Very very odd to be sure.

Shape: Circular
Duration: Less than 1 second

Details: Light in Lacombe, Alberta. Low in the southern horizon, just about the roof line, I saw a light go across the sky and turn off. The light had to have been going fast to make the distance in the very short time line.

It turned off as soon as I noticed it but kept doing in a western direction.

Shape: Other (X – shaped)
Duration: 10 – 15 seconds

Details: Work night shift, and while on break at 0330 hours, saw what I thought was a plane flying with no marker lights on and made absolutely no sound. It travelled from west to east in a straight line. It appeared to be in the shape of an “x,” as an aircraft with wings would, and its color appeared to be grey/white. There was a very bright moon out at the time and not a cloud in the sky.

I am a sky watcher and also an air show enthusiast and have never seen something like this before. Would love an explanation!

Shape: Disk
Duration: 5 minutes

Details: Disk UFO I was at work on Monday Oct.16, 2017 driving south on 127 street Edmonton. I was stopped at the Yellowhead/127 street intersection looking forward and up in the cloudy sky. There was nothing there and then suddenly this object appeared about 400 to 500 meters up under the clouds south of me about 1 kilometer I estimate. It was moving oddly and immediately got my attention. I keep a powerful monocular in my carry bag behind my seat and while I was stopped at the intersection I reached for it and zoomed in on the object. It was disk shaped and black and was moving in a westerly direction at about 60 km/hr. The light turned green at the intersection and I had to drive south but kept my eye on it. I eventually turned off of 127 street heading west on 122 Ave. I lost sight for a bit but regained sight just before reaching St. Albert Trail. I actually stopped the vehicle and with the monocular got a very good look at the object. It had 2 red lights on left and right sides of the disk with a pinkish red hue emanating from the thin center part of the disk. The 2 lights stayed in place while the disk was wobbling like you would see a coin wobble on a table before coming to a rest, with the outward sides bobbing up and down. The motion on the disk however was much slower. Aside from the 2 lights and the emanating hue the disk appeared to be black with no rotors, no exhaust, nothing sticking out. I have submitted a drawing with this.

I am 50 years old, married with children and work full time. I have a University degree and two college diplomas.

The same orb appeared again above me flying West to East at 2115, but this time disappeared when almost directly above me. This orb has flown over me about 7 or 8 times now. It is white, silent and can behave differently each time it appears.

Shape: Light
Duration: 50 minutes

Details: This report is about a light orb that has flown over me about 6 or 7 times now. This report is unique from the others in that the orb did something it has not done before that I could see anyway.

I was at work again on Oct. 3, 2017. It was 2040 hours and I was on a 25 minute layover and was outside. I was looking toward the West in the sky and i see a bright light approaching me high up. How high I am not sure. It seemed to be cloud level perhaps higher. But when i see the light it is very bright. This time it flies almost directly over me, but not quite, from a West to East direction. I see the light and zoom in on it with a powerful monocular I purchased. I see it is the same light orb I have seen previously. I take out my phone camera and start filming it. I get about 1 minute or so then my phone goes dead. I revert back to my monocular and watch the orb continue from West to East.

After a few minutes the orb dims somewhat. On previous occasions, the orb has traversed the sky till out of sight or veer in a different direction and on 2 occasions it disappeared as I watched it.  This time it did something it has not done before. It stopped. The orb came to a stop and ! sat in the same spot for at least 50 minutes. While I was watching it with the monocular as the orb was still, another light traveled past it perpendicular to the direction the stopped orb was travelling. The moving light moved south to north just below the stopped orb. 5 minutes later another light did the same thing. I don’t know what those lights were.  If you were to look at the orb that stopped it would appear as a star had you not seen it cross the sky. I phoned my wife in excitement and some nervousness and told her what I was looking at. I then filed the report. Conditions in sky were clear with some high cloud cover. No real wind that I noticed. No sound from object, no trail left behind.  The color of the orb was a bright white light that later dimmed before coming to a stop. The color if the 2 other lights that crossed the stopped orb were dim white as well.

I am a male, 50 years old, married 25 tears with 2 children. I have a University degree and 2 college diplomas and work full time.

Shape: Sphere (melon sized black solid orb).
Duration: 2 minutes

Details: On September 27, at 1600 hrs., I was at work on a short layover at the University of Alberta, relaxing and stretching my legs in a parking lot. It was a sunny day with moderate cumulus clouds. I was looking up and a small melon sized black orb appeared and flew above me and past me in a southerly west direction. It flew by at about 60 km hour and traversed a wide arc until I lost sight of it.  It made no noise and had no wings or anything particular aside from it being a black melon sized sphere or orb. It seemed solid to me. The unusual thing about the sighting was my ability to see it flying in the air when it was so far away from me. It had to be over 2 miles away but yet i could still see it. I thought that was odd. It eventually flew where i could no longer see it.

I am a 50 year old male. A University graduate with a BSc. degree as well as a Technical college degree and 2 year Diploma in Bible Theology from a Saskatchewan college.

Married for 25 years with 2 children. Work full time.

Shape: Circle (circular glowing white craft).
Duration: 3-5 minutes

Details: On the morning of Sunday, September 17th, our family was at church as is our custom. It was 1055 AM, and I poured myself a coffee in the foyer, then went outside to the steps of the church. It was a sunny clear blue sky with a few scattered clouds.

Looking up to the north, a bright glowing circular or perhaps egg shaped UFO appeared, travelling in a south easterly direction in a straight path below cloud level. While I was watching it the UFO made an impossible turn at a 45 degree angle and proceeded in a straight path eastward until out of sight. The UFO seemed to going about 100 to 200 km/hr. There was a fellow coming into the church and he saw the object as well.

The main witness (myself) is a University graduate with a BSc and Technical college graduate as well as a graduate in Bible Theology from a Saskatchewan Bible College. I work full time and have been married 25 years and have 2 children.

Details: I was standing outside at a friend’s cabin on Lake Edith near Jasper AB around 5:50am in the morning and I noticed a very bright light in the western sky travelling eastward.  At first, I thought it was a satellite but then I realized it was cloudy and the bright light was travelling just below the clouds which were fairly low at that time.  I continued to watch it travel eastward and I thought it might have been a plane but there were no green or red flashing lights and I could not hear the sound of a plane.  It took approximately 30 seconds to travel across the sky which was approximately 20km.

The sky was clear that night (could see a few stars already… It wasn’t a beam; it didn’t travel or hover. Just a quick bright flash of light. Like something in the sky had taken a picture of us (example just to give an idea of duration and type of light).

Shape: Crescent
Duration: 45 minutes

Details: I was outside having a smoke with my roommate (10:38PM) watching the sky and trying to catch the Perseid meteor shower as it was supposed to be a peak night. As we are looking up we notice 3 very large crescent shaped orange UFOs in a triangle formation moving at a steady slower pace flying to the West. Completely amazed and unsure of what we saw, we waited and kept watching the sky. Approximately 15 minutes later we saw 2 crescent shaped bright orange crafts appear in the sky – they were moving faster than the previous crafts and crossing each other in the sky going the same direction as the crafts before.

Now completely dumbfounded and in awe we expected it was all over and about 25 minutes later, the same 3 crafts in the triangle formation appeared in the sky and flew the opposite direction as before (to the East).  We waited and watched for about 20 minutes longer and as we were about to call it a night and go in we saw the 2 crafts appear to the west of the sky and move East. They were crossing each others’ paths as they were before. Every time the crafts flew over us it felt like there was a lot of electricity present (hairs standing up and light tingling on skin).

I’ve always been skeptical of UFO’s, but I cannot find explanation for what we saw. My whole viewpoint has changed. I am hoping somebody saw the same thing we did. I forgot to mention in my previous message to you guys that this was seen in Calgary, Alberta.

Details: I was walking down 111 avenue near 92 st Edmonton Alberta  around 7:30am on my way to the office when I noticed a disc shaped object zipping from the southern sky heading north but it was making no sound at all. It seemed to me the way it glided across the sky it was way more fluid in motion than other mechanical crafts (planes etc.) than I had ever seen. Well obviously it struck me as odd enough that I managed to get my phone out in time and got a picture of it , this is the original picture untouched as it was the very moment that I snapped the picture. Bare in mind you have to zoom in but I assure you that if you do look in the blue sky about mid picture you will see it and can draw your own conclusion.

They went zigzag, shooting strait and stopping. Looked like they were searching…. then they stop and act like a star. And not move. If I didn’t see it moving, I would have thought it was a star.

There was a meteor shower happening, we couldn’t be the only ones to see what we saw!

Duration: Unknown

Details: On July 30, 2017 in Lethbridge Alberta we were sitting on our deck on a hot night at 12:25 am we saw it.I was looking directly straight up and a extremely large V shaped something flew directly above us. It was either 7 to 9 individual round bright white lights in a v formation.It could have been one craft with these lights. I couldn’t see any definition to it. It was as wide as our house and going north to south. It was travelling very fast and made no sound at all. I screamed and my daughter looked up and saw it as well. This was huge. My daughter saw it from a different angle and commented that it was looked like it had a feathery wispy glow.

I have since been scouring the internet and have seen some similar reports from people that have seen something like this. This was not an air-plane!! The weird thing is that we live on a park and earlier that night there were kids on our park with extremely super bright flash lights shining them all over the trees etc.

There was very little wind, and it was blowing from the North.  It was visible for a minute or two as it traveled.  It’s shape and size were hard to make out.

Details: At 3:55 am I was awoken by the neighbor dog. (Again – ha!) This time though, the dog had a different sounding bark that I hadn’t heard before. I looked out the window to the northeast of Purple Springs, AB. (near Taber). I saw a bright circular light in the sky below the clouds. My guess is that it was close to Bow Island. I then saw three lights and it looked like they were going apart. The light distorted into a triangular shape and I took a picture of it through my window. Then the light went back to a circle but had fuzzy rays. Sorry – trying to describe it! It was stationary for the 10 minutes I was looking at it, but I couldn’t keep looking as I had to get up for work at 5am.

This sounds similar to the sighting reported on this page in Lethbridge on May 13, 2017.

Details: It was about 11;50-12:00 when my Friend and I were sitting on the hill in a small park in SE Calgary when a strange completely silent craft flew down the street towards us, white, red, and blue lights flashing in odd sequence, I gave chase with friend and followed but the object gained altitude. the way it flew was like a orb, continuously spinning and it was dead quiet with no wind. I and my friend spent a hour trying to explain it but couldn’t find any craft on earth that would have been able to defy aerodynamics like that or move dead quietly on its own path with no wind.

The weirdest is that since I was the one who was closest to it in distance I saw the lights more clearly and since then I haven’t been able to stop seeing their colors and patterns over and over again in my mind. No matter what I do it just is always sitting in the back of my mind like a siren that won’t stop ringing. red light, red light, 3 whites, red light. over and over. Its far from my first time like this, I’m a contactee but it was my first seeing a UFO like that, calm, sitting with a friend, nothing abnormal just drinking some water and laughing and enjoying the calm night.

crafts moving in formation over SW Calgary, then performing aerial stunts

I was getting back into my car from grabbing a coffee at Tim Horton’s… I was facing SW Calgary and noticed some aircraft off in the distance flying in formation. The head formation broke off and headed in a NE direction, the crafts (5) then started to perform aerial stunts, dodging each other, moving erractically up and down. The trailing crafts (3) continued northly for another 20 secs or so, and then headed in the same direction.

Grabbed my iphone to record event, which I thought I caught, but with the glaring sun on my screen, I never saw that the phone was not actually recording.

These craft appeared to be moving at a high rate of speed (similar to what I have seen at airshows) and probably were 10-15 km from my viewing point. During one of its manuevers, it tilted up and it looked to be almost all wing no real tail or body…wing appeared whitish in the middle with dark grey on the ends.

I panic a bit at this point, thinking I had the event on video. I got my car and drove off in the opposite direction

Square rotating craft heading Towards edmonton alberta canada

I was walking on a bike path, the clouds were being illuminated by the moon. The clouds were low laying in formation, and were thick enough to block out the moons physical appearance from sight, but thin enough that the clouds were lit and appeared to be lit up and glowing from the light. (I hope that makes sense)

I was admiring how bright they appeared, when from the north, a shadow of entered my sight and moved slowly south at what appeared to be a slow speed. The shadow was rotating as well, and the craft appeared to be either a square shaped or cube, from the ground it looked as a square, it was a really slow rotation as it moved from the north moving south, in the direction towards Edmonton, Alberta. It was just above the clouds, and shortly after, it left my view.

Within 5-10 minutes after, at the most, either a commercial or military plane flew over Redwater, flying from the southeast of the sky heading northwest. My time of 12:30 might be a little off, Hopefully, the flight from the plane can give a better idea to what time it was. It was after 11pm, for,sure.

Shape: Light

I first saw the light fly almost directly over our home, as I was outside on porch at 2355 hours. The solitary light or orb slowly crossed the sky from a West to East direction. It made no noise and aside from the main body of light emanating from the object I could discern no other lights.

I took note of time and thought to be outside at the same time the next day.

Went out at 2350 and the same light flew over again at same time and what appeared to be same flight line. The next day was cloudy and maybe rainy and saw nothing. On the fourth day I was walking home from work at about 22 45 ish and the light flew over me again. This time I had my phone and got it out to record the object as it flew over me.

Black chevron shape craft silently flew North east over Canmore Ab.

I was hiking down on a trail above the powerline trail near grassi lakes in Canmore. I looked up above the trees toward the Three Sisters Mountains, so in between Three Sisters and Mt. Haling, and saw a triangular chevron shaped craft flying/gliding perfectly straight towards the east end of Grotto Mountain above Canmore, between 10,000 and 20,000 feet in the air. It was moving at least 3 times faster than any commercial jets I saw, but there was no sound.

It disappeared behind the trees again and then I ran to an opening at the end of the trail, which took maybe 20 seconds, and it was no longer visible.

It was solid black no visible lights or markings. I tried to take 2 pictures with my phone but it didn’t show up it was either behind the trees or the background was to bright and it couldn’t pick it up. Either way there is nothing visible in the pictures.

where are all the pictures….with everyone owning a cell phone these days….

Saw a couple of lights over the years…..but the main reason I am writing is why don’t you provide an avenue to attach pictures……..and I can’t believe most people would not have pictures to prove their sighting….otherwise it is just hearsay…..don’t get me wrong, I believe in UFOs, but just reading reports is not very convincing for the rest of the population.

Saucer shape with 4 windows, not clear about the color

It was night, but my wife saw the UFO. It was very close to and above us because she saw the 4 windows and structure of the UFO. According to her description, it was hanging over and left after she saw it. The evening was dark, so it was not very easy to see it in the sky.

Even I did not see, but from her face and eyes, I know she really saw something.

Shape: Light
Duration:30-45 seconds

Very bright light with two faint fluorescent like green light streaks trailing from either side – possible beams.

Sighting – Exshaw, Alberta Canada at approximately 10 p.m. There was no-one with me at the time.


*Correction and addition. It was travelling in a south east direction, not south west. From my perspective, the object was about the size of a soccer ball.


Cloudy sky – I followed the object for about 30-45 seconds-travelling in a south west direction.

At first, I thought I was seeing a satellite flying overhead through a break in the cloud—I thought very bright for a satellite—looked like a very, very bright star travelling very fast—no sound. As it passed, I realized that it wasn’t a satellite as it flew under the cloud and then into some lower cloud but still visible as it passed through, so not into heavy cloud. There appeared to be two faint, greenish fluorescent like light streaks trailing from either side of the object. At one point before it completely disappeared into the cloud, it appeared that a small bright ball was ejected from the object.

About 20 minutes later, I saw an aircraft travelling in the opposite direction – It didn’t appear to be a commercial aircraft as it was too low for a commercial aircraft and flew very fast and had a single vapor trail.

I would open to speaking to an investigator if that is deemed important/necessary.

Two triangular aircraft moving very hastily and quickly, one with a blinding light and the other with 3 lights in a triangular form.

I was looking over a barren field with my girlfriend, we both saw two triangular aircraft with 3 blinking lights traveling in a very linear direction,

Very soon after spotting the aircraft, one split from the course and turned directly 180 degrees, flying the opposite way in which it had previously, whilst the second aircraft sat still.

The aircraft in which turned around, had a light turn on so bright it was blinding, and continued to do so until it had flown down and out of sight, whilst it was flying it was moving in a very wobbly motion as if it was moving up and down very hastily.

The second aircraft at this time, turned directly around as well and flew toward the exact place the first aircraft had, except at extreme speeds and disappeared quickly, but this second aircraft could be seen 15 minutes later around 11:43PM orbiting the area very far away,

there were no further sightings of either aircraft.

Strange Lights over Edmonton’s northern skies [dusk].

We came out of McDonald’s when I was drawn toward a bright light, high in the norther sky. I had seen this kind of light before … I guess that was why I was looking up there. Venus was visible already [it was pre-dusk] high in the south-west – and that light in the northern sky had about the same magnitude than Venus did that evening. As we drove home -about a 10 minute drive] we still saw that light, but it soon faded dramatically, only to split into two fainter lights, hovering above each other, then starting to ‘dance’ around each other [my daughter said ‘they are playing tag’]. When I ran inside to get the binoculars, the lights were gone … as there never was anything up there.

Last evening [February 21] we saw the same thing again. Same time, same location, same brightness at first. This time I had binoculars at hand, and two neighbors witnessed it too [though, they dismissed it as balloons or something like that]. After waiting about 20 minutes, the light faded again and it split into many tinier lights. The binoculars revealed that the original light was donut shaped, and after fading, the smaller were just light dots, moving erratically, before shooting away in all directions with such speed I could not follow them with the binoculars. I also saw two, what looked like cloud-shapes among the seven tinier lights before they shot away.

I’d like to know what we all saw … Thanks

Sand dollar disk with black rolling circles hollow center passing over the surface

Witnessed in Strathmore, Alberta, in the night sky over Calgary in the SW, bright light in sky looked like a star grabbed my telescope an when I looked I can describe it as a sand dollar like you would find in the ocean. It was on its side, the size of a quarter of the moon its pulsed gently reddish. once in a while black circles would pass over the surface in a way it distorted the surface. Half the time there was this bright light behind it jaded in shape not smooth shape. It appeared to shift up and down and from side to side, it move out of sight heading west heading down over the horizon.

I was leaving to go to work (it was foggy) I drove out to main road and turned right , I seen a very bright ball to my left. I instantly thought it was the moon. but I stopped and backed up as the object i was seeing was in the northwest and the moon on clear mornings is always to the south when I leave the house. .

It was very bright like a ball of fire sitting above the trees.

UFO follows jet while jet lands

I live near the airport here, and can see all the landings on runway 00, about 2 miles away. I watched a passenger jet landing on runway 00 while having a smoke past midnight. I noticed a dim single light behind the aircraft following it in. It could move much faster than the jet, and I estimate it could move up and down, back and forth about 200 ft/sec. or more. It would move up for a few seconds above the jet, then down for a few seconds below the jet, seemingly inspecting the jet.

When the jet was about 2 miles from touch down, the UFO disappeared totally. I did not see it leave, just the dim light disappeared suddenly.

I contacted the airport to see if they got any radar hits on it, waiting for a reply.

Bright Red Light Seen by Roommate and Myself in Northern sky moving West to East.

Bright red light almost spherical flew across the dark night from West to East, North of our Apartment. Did not see any strobe light that is common to aircraft. There was no sound, a roommate said it almost looked like a diamond shape a top of red light. I couldn’t see any real shape other than a bright red light smoothly traveling West to East. It seemed to move a lot faster than any commercial aircraft would move. It was not a comet it did not burn out or go in a downward spiral. I tried to take a picture, but my camera wouldn’t pick it up in the dark.

We were looking at the weird bright light sitting just over the peak of Tunnel Mountain for 10 minutes.

It hovered there and pulsated bright white light. We took pictures of it and zoomed in to see a silver saucer over the mountains and dissapeared as we were looking at our photos.

It was creepy.

I went outside onto my deck. A single light, very visible in the sky, travelled parallel to the horizon for no more than 4 seconds. It went very fast, though it was a good distance away. I’ve seen satellites before, but the are typically not very bright and travel at a slow speed. This object was travelling very fast. I checked the ISS webpage and its nowhere near here.

I’m assuming this is explainable, but am still curious enough to report this sighting.

Sunset today was at 16:55.

Very High Flash of Light

I was on my balcony this evening, looking up at the sky SW of the Moon, when a sudden bright light, like a spotlight, appeared and then quickly disappeared. The light did not move or travel, it just flashed on and off. I observed the area for another five minutes or so but did not see anything else unusual. This flash of light was high up with the stars and bigger and brighter than the surrounding stars. Too high for a drone or helicopter and without the flashing lights of an airplane. I am mystified because I have never seen anything like this in my 50+ years.

Live about 25km west of Sundre, Alberta. Never seen a UFO or reported same, so this is a first.

Walking down driveway, in a southeasterly direction, looking at near full moon, spotted bright light object from south heading north under the moon. Brightness was almost like Jupiter, a near yellow in colour.

My initial thought it was a satellite or ISS, but not in correct direction for ISS.

-Possibly was “a small plane” at 1000m in elevation, but no coloured running lights just a bright light that faded after nearly 10 seconds. Like watching some satellites disappearing into the umbra of the earth Definitely not an airliner.

-Possibly it was a satellite, but too fast.

-Possibly a meteor but too slow and no tail.

I have lived here more than 3 years and make it a habit of watching the skies, and this was odd.

UFO immobile then hovering the town of jasper to disappear right over our car…

hello, I was with my girlfriend that night and we decided to go watch the stars by the river about 6 km south of town looking north, so i parked with the back of my car facing the river. We stayed in the car laying in a bed we made watching. All of a sudden I was watching the stars and a star appeared right in front of me, a very bright star that had the brightness of a planet. So i kept looking and I told my girlfriend to look at it to swearing that I had just seen it appear. We both started looking at the star for about 3 or 4 minutes when the star just disappeared. We kept looking at the spot where the star was until it re appeared again. it appeared and disappeared every 3 or 4 minutes for about 15 minutes staying in the same spot the entire time. Then, as I was looking at it bright again for a few minutes. I was looking at it and all of a sudden it flashed brightly three times, to then dim away to more of a dim orange light and immediately started moving south, hovering all over jasper slowly and appeared to be loosing altitude but was traveling a straight line, getting so close and so low that I could almost make a shape. it disappeared almost directly over our car. For about five minutes, I kept looking to see if it would re appear right where in was, almost directly over our car on the East side of town. All of sudden a loud bang came from out of the trunk area on our car like something landing or hitting. And then we turned to each other asking if had both heard the noise, we thought maybe it was an animal but our trunk was facing the water and the noise was far to loud for it to be a small animal. then we heard more noises coming from out trunk, so I jumped in the drivers seat to leave. When I turned on lights and started driving my girlfriend looked in the mirror and said that there was nothing she could see.

Also, our dog was in the car and did not react to any of this, even the noises coming from the trunk.

7 objects spotted on video footage recorded with a drone during day time full HD video available

Drone video recorded in Parkland County at Hasse Lake in Alberta, Canada I was recording some video footage of top of trees trying to capture the fall colors, and I did just that.

Later on while showing a friend of mine the video from my drone I have noticed objects in my film that were unusual, I loaded the video into video editing software and went frame by frame and to my surprise I have seen spheres of light ? going extremely fast below my drone, then one came with in feet of the drone passing it at very high speed.

The original videos are uploaded into drop box account, the initial video that I released is located on youtube under the link below.

I am extremely interested to figure out what did my camera actually recorded.

((NUFORC Note: We have viewed the video, and seriously doubt that the objects, which are very difficult to discern, are UFOs. They are very small, it appears, and we wonder whether they might be insects or seed pods, flying past the object lens of the video camera. PD))

Date: Saturday, October 8, 2016 Location: Strathmore, Alberta area Time: 02:20 Object Size: Large, square helicopter style Object Color: White lights (Unknown)  Sky Conditions: Unknown

On Saturday, October 8, 2016, at approximately 2:20 am, while driving eastbound on highway #1 towards Strathmore, the witness and her daughter observed two very large, almost helicopter type of aircraft, each with four propellers. The objects had white lights and emitted a very loud distinct wing-beating sound, like a slowed recording of a humming-bird. Three other vehicles pulled over to the roadside and took pictures of the objects.

On Thursday, September 15, 2016, at approximately 9:20 pm, while walking in a southeasterly direction, the witness observed a bright light travelling south to north just under the near full moon. It was almost as bright as Jupiter and near yellow in color. At first, the witness thought it may be a satellite or the ISS, but it was moving in the wrong direction for the ISS. Or, a light plane at about 1000m in altitude, but had no visible navigation lights, just a bright light which faded after about 10 seconds. It did not seem to display the characteristics of a satellite or meteor and was definitely not an airliner. The witness has lived in the area for 3 years and makes a habit of watching the skies, but has never seen a UFO or reported one.

On Saturday, September 10, 2016, at approximately 1:00 am and about 6 km south of Jasper, a couple decided to spend some time watching the stars in the evening sky. They were watching a particular star appear and disappear at intervals of every 3-4 minutes for approximately 15 minutes when it suddenly flashed brightly three times and then dimmed to an orange light. It immediately started moving south, slowly over Jasper in a straight line, losing altitude as it continued toward the couple. The object disappeared almost directly over their car on the east side of town. After about 15 minutes, a loud bang came from the vicinity of the trunk of their car like something landing or hitting it. The couple heard more noises coming from the trunk, so they rapidly drove away, but nothing was seen in the rear view mirror as they left. The strange part is the fact that their dog had not reacted to anything, not even the noises coming from the trunk.


Date: Thursday, September 1, 2016 Location: Innisfree, Alberta Time: 02:30 Object Size: 2/3 the size of the full moon at its highest point in the sky. Object Color: Orange Sky Conditions: Night (unknown)

On Thursday, September 1, 2016, at approximately 2:30 am, between Vegreville and Vermilion, on Highway 16, the witness observed what appeared to be a single orange fireball-type object traveling westbound across the night sky. The object made no sound and appeared to be a little north of the witnesses position. It took approximately one minute, at 30 – 45 degrees inclination, to travel the distance.


Date: Sunday, August 14, 2016 Location: Calgary, Alberta Time: Unknown Object Size: Unknown (5 objects) Object Color: Gold Sky Conditions: Overcast with lightning.

The witness was travelling South on Crowchild Trail SW, when he spotted five bright golden spheres hovering in a V formation over the Glenmore Reservoir. The lights illuminated the surrounding clouds and after observing them for approximately three minutes, they disappeared.


Date: Sunday. some cloud.

The witness and their son were observing Saturn and Mars through an 8″ telescope. from the backyard, at approximately 22:45pm on Sunday evening, when the boy spotted an unidentified object in the NW sky. The object was travelling slowly from the NW to the North, with five large red lights in a row and made no sound. The lights were completely symmetrical, with no flashing and no other colors. It traveled above the treeline for about 20 seconds then rapidly accelerated, for approximately three seconds, in a northerly and downward direction. When it traveled downward, it appeared to be a black triangular object.


Date: Saturday, August 6, 2016 Location: Calgary, Alberta Time: 19:20 hrs – 19:30 hrs Object Size: ~ 2 m in diameter (sphere) Object Color: Black Sky Conditions: Unknown

The witnesses were sitting in a coffee shop, watching the aircraft flying overhead, following the glide path to the Calgary International Airport (CYYC) just North of their location. While watching a 737, or similar aircraft, on final approach heading North, they observed a black sphere approaching the aircraft from the West. According to the witnesses, it seemed as though the pilot raised the left wing to avoid the incoming sphere and was probably not simply aligning the aircraft with the runway. The sphere made a couple of more course changes and there were no visible signs of a means of propulsion.
