|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.
Thanks ((name deleted)) in Edmonton, Canada

|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.

|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.
((ADDENDUM/CORRECTION FROM WITNESS))
*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.

|A ball of fire in the sky
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.
I have a picture I have filled out a report only days after event but not sure if it went through.

|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.

|Flying disk shape saucer seen over tunnel mountain in Banff.
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.

Location: Sundre (Canada), AB
|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.
Date: Thursday, September 15, 2016 Location: 25 km west of Sundre, Alberta Time: 21:20 Object Size: Satellite sized Object Color: As bright as Jupiter and almost yellow in color. Sky Conditions: Night with near full moon.
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.
Date: Saturday, September 10, 2016 Location: Jasper, Alberta Time: 01:00 Object Size: Star sized (Unknown) Object Color: Dim orange (fireball) Sky Conditions: Night (Unknown)
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. August 7, 2016 Location: Edmonton, Alberta Time: 22:45 hrs Object size: Unknown (triangular) Object Color: Black with five large red lights. Sky Conditions: Slight Haze with 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.
