Shape: Unknown
Duration: 1 Hour +

Details:  Heli sound, low elev., circling. Red +green laser (?) light when viewed on approach. Long diamond rectangular. VERY dim but loud.

We live about 150 metres from the High River Regional Hospital, in High River, Alberta. We witness one or more Stars air ambulance flights in and out of the hospital every week. In the last month or two we have been noticing (while in the house) that they seem to be circling for longer periods and waking us in the night more frequently. Always only one aircraft.

At 3AM Monday, January, 28th, 2019 – (earlier today) – the following took place: my companion woke me up standing next to the bed listening to what he thought was yet another STARS air ambulance circling, circling for what he believed had been “hours”. I awoke more fully and heard the chopper sound. One aircraft. I looked out of our upper north and south loft windows but could not see a helicopter. Because it was loud enough to believe that it was at least as close as we are to the hospital – if not circling right above it –

I decided I would get a closer look at this to see if there were some! sort of emergency vehicle back up (or what)?! I was considering walking over to the Hospital to complain. Upon stepping outside (cold and clear night) I sought the sound out but couldn’t visually place it. It moved toward and near me, then away again fairly quickly but slow enough to think I should be able to get a visual of this “helicopter”. The close swoop over my vicinity took about 10 seconds. It sounded like it was circling a larger area of town as I could hear it in the distance with the sound receding and then getting louder again. Always coming back again to swoop around the west side of the hospital area. I was on the west end of its apparent orbit. After hearing 2 passes and confirming that I could not get a visual, I stood perfectly still in a few shadows of the house and my eyes locked upon a very dim glow, but I could only do so for a brief moment, as it moved across in a counter clockwise manner. I saw it three more times. Once over the low slope of my roof, nearly head on – this is the only time I witnessed l! ight on the object – a very small red light which came in and out of view very quickly. It appeared to be stationary but not a spotlight. Like it was pointing directly in front of the object’s path of flight. My companion said he saw a small red light, and the same small green light. If I hadn’t seen this light the object might have appeared to be a projection, but the light seemed to ground it in reality! I witnessed the “helicopter” curve from the north to the south, then to the east, in a counter clockwise movement. Because it was a clear night – I could see the light of the stars become blocked and that was how I got a visual approximation, initially. As my retina adjusted I realized it was indeed a visually distinguishable object, but only barely so. I am not certain if it was emitting a glow – or if the glow was due to the low moonlight in the clear sky. However, I could see it in about 3/4’s of it’s orbital path. It seemed to be rectangular, longish. It was narrower at the front but I could not tell if it was pointed. It had a wider tail end, and it may have been flat on its underside. I tried to view the object through binoculars but could not get a visual lock on it for more than a few seconds, it was so hard to track. I spent about an hour going in and out of the house as it was quite cold out, too cold to remain standing in one spot for long.

Naturally, I wish I had some audio/visual record of it but I do not have access to anything reliable that could do that. I’d like some answers about what this is and really don’t know where to start asking the questions! Thanks for reading my report.

Details:  Drone like UFO (No lights)

I was walking my dog just before 3am this morning in Prestwick (McKenzie Towne) when I heard this buzzing humming sound. Similar to a helicopter, but more like a drone, only bigger. It had no lights either. I heard it approaching and it was more like a drone at this point with higher pitched humming like a drone. I was convinced it was a heli until it approached where I was walking, and I saw the shape, only a couple hundred feet above me, and it did a 3/4 circle around my head, then took off toward Deerfoot. Almost in the same direction it came. It was fast. Probably the size of a smart car, and again…no lights what so ever.

Location: Bowden, AB
Shape: Oval
Duration: 3 Minutes

Details:  My daughter called from Bowden, AB (we live in BC) a little while ago, saying she was shaken by what she had just seen. She sent a video through her phone, saying it didn’t do it justice, that the lights were very large.

She went outside the front of the house on Westview Drive to film them. She described them as coming from the Southwest going to the Northeast.

They were orange in colour and oval to round. When I asked her how they were moving (as compared to how they were filmed on her phone (which wasn’t completely steady) and I asked her, “Were they buzzing round like bees? Or going more smoothly? She said they were moving rather smoothly.

She said the whole event took place for about 3 minutes. If you would like video, please contact her.

Details: Crazy. Lights streak across the sky.

My wife and I were sitting in our hot tub looking at the sky. We seen a number of planes earlier in the night, then out of nowhere a bright light caught our eye and we started talking and then again out of nowhere at the same time we pointed to the sky telling each other to look. We seen two blue lights streaking across the sky followed by a red light. Shortly after that we seen another blue light followed by a red light doing something side to side. The lights didn’t flicker. Shortly after that we seen another blue/green light streak across the sky. They were not clustered together or in a formation but going the same direction. They went incredibly fast and disappeared out of our view.

Location: Parkland County, AB
Shape: Light
Duration: 15 Seconds

Details: Orange rotating light with oval dots.

I woke from sleep 6am and went to the kitchen for a drink of water. My cat was sitting on the back of the couch toward a big picture window so I approached the cat with a treat, the cat looked toward the second level deck and I noticed a orange rotating light rotating clockwise and it was at the far end of our deck, our deck is 90 feet in length and I was looking out the middle section window.

I put my knees on the couch to get a better view and the light rotated slowly with round yellow oval dots 4-5 inches across slight beams, the orange glow and the oval dots rotated at different speeds and pattern. Lasted 15 seconds and was gone. I could see the edge of a round object when I was leaning over the couch.

I was in shock and still am. We live at an acreage far from others, 400 feet between homes. I still don’t understand what I saw.

Shape: Teardrop
Duration: 15 minutes

Details: Glowing stars scattered over Calgary Airport.

Last night I looked out my window and there was all these star like lights and there were several of them, I thought it was birds from a long distance but they were moving too fast and the were controlled, there was at least 20 of them, they were dropping from the sky and moving back up again and it was right over Calgary airport or close by,

I know it wasn’t birds they were moving very fast up and down left to right it almost looked like the was an air fight between different crafts. I couldn’t take pictures because it would just be all black and they were too far away.

At 1218 AM, having a smoke in back yard looking up at night sky watching a satellite pass then another satellite pass close to other satellite the light faded looking west I noticed a extremely bright white light moving towards me. I said what is that. I was wondering what is this it’s so slow and bright with no sounds passing over my house,

I had my phone clicking on the camera I click camera record on. I am recording the UFO wondering what is this not a plane, not a helicopter, not a satellite it’s so low so bright traveling from South West, I believe around 10 to 15 thousand feet. I also took pictures of UFO. I will send my pictures & videos.

Shape: Circle
Duration: Night

Details: I was looking out my bedroom window, that’s when I saw a floating object, it was green and red. It just hovered there, I’m not sure how long. I don’t remember if it was circular or a triangle… I’m quite certain it was a circle.
But I went to go get my phone, when I went back to take photos, it wasn’t there.
I felt like I lost track of time, I don’t even know how long I just sat there, watching the craft change from green to red. The craft itself wasn’t changing colours, but the lights where.

Details: Creepy and unusual sighting at the local library.
My friend and I were hanging out at the local library. When we were just about to leave, myself and my friend saw this flying craft in the sky. It had three flashing lights on each side and we didn’t see a driver, but we knew it was in the somewhere. It hovered in place for a bit but then started moving.
We ran after it as long as we could but a few minutes later it disappeared from the sky.
We haven’t seen anything strange since then.

Looked almost like a shooting star except instead of going down it was moving across and up…as well it was brighter then just disappeared…no sound and was moving far too fast to be any plane and again it was very bright.

Details: Star emitted white light beam and rapidly changed direction.
Paddling on the Rundle Forebay Reservoir at around 3am and saw what looked like a star directly to the east above Mt. Fable. The star got brighter and then produced what looked like headlight beams (white) before rapidly changing direction (roughly 45 degrees) to the north and out of the atmosphere as a single red dot. 3 other witnesses saw the event. Thought it might have been a meteor ricocheting off the Troposphere. Incredible event to have witnessed regardless of object.

I looked away for a couple minutes to tell my husband then realized the Moon was on the other side of the house. When i looked back it moved over a few houses, then disappeared. It was in Millwoods/Edmonton, going southeast. Round and large greyish white and looked exactly like the moon. So weird.

    Edmonton Alberta 09/11/17 at approx 12:40 AM: I saw 3 disc shaped UFO’s flying over the city of Edmonton. The lights around each disc were fuzzy white in color and flying in a wide triangular formation. They were traveling from southeast to northwest. Wondering is there were any others who caught this?

    To the August 2nd 2017 report, from Lethbridge.
    I Lived around Cougar Park. North
    Reported back in around 2009 to this site.
    Same ship, walking dog, 12:30 am.
    Dogs started barking starting miles away, getting closer as each dog outside, started barking.
    Flew slowly above me, no noise.
    It was late, and same time of the year.
    Had some late night light behind it.
    Triangular wing shape with 7 propulsion lights along trailing edge.
    3 lights each side, one in middle.
    Size seems the same, as your sighting.
    Slowly flew up, to the right.
    Engines seemed to light up more,
    Disappeared to a pencil point, and gone,
    Instantly. No noise,
    Very real, and there.

    I have video and photos of UFO’s that I’ve seen in Alberta. On May 4 2016 south of Grand Prairie in broad daylight between 4:20 PM and 4:40 PM in the afternoon a large spherically shaped cloud was stationary in the sky above us while we were working on a pipeline construction site. I took photos of the spherical shape because all the other clouds in the sky were moving except this one. It changed shape into a smoky formless shape and then formed into a triangular shaped cloud while maintaining its position. I took photos of each shape change and then a video of the sky around us 360º and it showed that the triangular shaped cloud remained positioned right where it had been… never moved from that spot. My crew and I were sent from that site location and were unable to see if it remained. However, I checked with other workers and contractors in the area and they confirmed that they saw it. No one thought to take a photo or video of the strange cloud.

    On 17 April 2019 at 11:19 PM I was smoking a cigarette on my backyard deck in south Edmonton and saw a UFO suddenly appear as a bright light with a large scimitar-looking shaped wing (about the size of 3 passenger jets) moving east to west and descending towards the Edmonton Airport southwest from my position. The object was about 2 miles away but very large. It made no sound when it suddenly appeared and moved very fast across my field of vision from east to west. It appeared to bank into a vertical position (like a knife edge) and then just as suddenly as it appeared then it disappeared. There was only a smoky residue to evidence that anything was there at all. It reminded me of a Klingon Bird of Prey but it shone with a very bright white light that only showed the wing portion of the craft. 2 days later I remembered that I had my CCTV night cameras on at the time and checked the footage. It showed the white light appearing and disappearing but being an infra-red device with limited focal range that’s all the detail that could be seen. However, it showed the speed and direction of the UFO and also the fact that it simply disappeared while in flight.

    My family and I just sat down by the fire when my little brother said “mommy what are those two things in the sky?” I looked up and saw two black UFO shaped dots in the sky. One was very easy to see and the other was diagonally up to the right but it was easy to see then disappears then easy to see then disappeared. They were visabke for about 3 minutes after my brother saw them. We are by Entwistle in Alberta. We really want to know what these objects are!

    Does anyone know what was in the sky at approximately 2:38am Aug 5, 2019? West Edmonton during the northern lights display.
    I saw something and heard it also. After the first flash I heard it off and on for about an hour however could no longer see it only hear it.

    I saw a red ball of light by onoway Oct 26 around 11:00 pm. It was moving fast not blinking and there was no noise.

    Hello, I witnessed a number of lights (30-40) tracking north to south east at about 6:30am over High River, Alberta. Seriously there were so many lights and they were all heading along the same line and could be seen for a long time. Did anyone else see them?

  12. Jordan says:

    I don’t want to waste anyone’s time here but who do I send footage to? I may have caught something last night not going to go into major details but I saw a circular object with white green and red lights spinning around it for a good hour than it’s disappeared to only resume in a new place but still visible from my house. Once again I don’t want to feel stupid or waste anyone’s time but some clarification would be appreciated

    On Dec December 29 2019 approx. 7pm I was driving west on highway 37 just up by Calahoo when my husband and I spotted these 2 bright lights in the sky . The closer we got to these lights the brighter they got. There wasn’t 2 lights like I thought there was 3 lights on the left and 3 on the right of the object. It wasn’t flying over fast but it was completely silent. There was no sound what so ever. The object that flew over us was MASSIVE. After it past that’s when we seen what at first looked like stars but they were in a straight line. Not across the sky, they were lined up one above the other with the exact amount of distance between them. I turn to see the lrge craft that past me, all its lights were now flashing really fast. The ones that were lined up one by one shot up into the atmosphere and disappeared. Never in my life have I seen anything like this.
