man was up watching sports on TV until 12:40 a.m. when he
noticed a yellow light coming through the kitchen window.
When he looked out the window, he noticed two quarter moon
shaped objects hovering about 100 feet in the air over the
neighbour's property (The property is located on the opposite
side of the street, across from the house). The objects
were slightly blocked from view by tall trees in the foreground.
As he watched the UFOs, the thought of reaching for his
rifle crossed his mind, but then, he decided to go into
the living room instead, where the large bay window offered
a better view of the event. But by the time he got there,
the two objects were gone.
a week later, the witness's son and daughter in law, who
reside in Cochrane, Alberta, observed a similar sighting
of two quarter-moon-shaped UFOs. No details on that one.
Our investigation is on going.
Location: Near Burwash, Ontario.
around 6:00 p.m., a CN locomotive engineer and two other
workers saw something while they plowed the rails between
Burwash and Killarney Provincial Park. The night was dark
and clear as two objects, in close proximity to each other,
hovered motionless in the sky.
Thursday, April 3, 1997.
Location: Wikwemikong Indian Reserve, Manitoulin
the early hours of the morning, a man looked out through
his living room window and noticed a yellow, saucer-shaped
object a few degrees above the horizon. In the foreground
stood a street light. The time was approximately 4:00 a.m.
and the sky was overcast. He estimated the size of the object
to be about half a cigarette held at arm's length. He also
said that at one point, the light blinked out for half a
second or so, then reappeared. Soon after, the object disappeared
he told his girlfriend about his sighting the next day,
she said it must have been the northern lights. He responded
by saying that the UFO was in the southern part of the sky
and the northern lights usually occur in the northern sky.

was sometime between 11:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. and there
were four of us outside, looking up at the stars. All of
a sudden, one of the women said: "Look at that red
object!" I looked straight up in the direction of the
Big Dipper and I saw what looked like a dark red triangle-shaped
object that appeared out of nowhere. It headed east and
disappeared in less than three seconds. Before it left,
I got a glimpse of it with my binoculars and the object
had jagged edges and a square forward section. It was dark
red in colour, and there were no other lights on or around
second and a half later, as I was searching all over the
sky with my binoculars for signs of the red object, JM yelled
out: "There! Look! Another one!" I couldn't believe
it. To the right of the Big Dipper, I caught a glimpse of
a dark grey object moving in a straight line. It suddenly
flared up to a dull white, then became a bright white egg-shaped
object. It then dimmed down to a dull white. And once again,
it appeared to be a dark greyish object. The UFO was moving
from the southeast to the northwest in a straight line and
"flared up" about 11 times in total, at intervals
of two seconds duration. It was moving at a relatively slow
speed so we had plenty of time to look at it. When it was
dark, I looked at it with the binoculars and I could see
a dark grey oval-shaped object. When I last saw it through
the binoculars, it was still heading northwest and was low
over the horizon and I could see the top of a pine tree
in the foreground. Before all of this happened, we had seen
both a satellite and a high-flying aircraft. Both UFOs were
definitely different in both appearance and performance
in comparison to the satellite and the plane.
This sighting made the top 10 list for Canadian sightings
in 1997 because of the fact that four adults witnessed it.
Saturday, October 4, 1997.
Location: Hanmer and Sudbury, Ontario.
October 4, I was recording a documentary on TV when I suddenly
received a call from a friend who was reporting to me that
he was looking at a UFO traveling east at a very fast clip.
The time was between 8:00 and 8:15 p.m. I dropped what I
was doing and I ran outside to take a look. At first glance,
I couldn't see anything. But then, I noticed from the corner
of my eye, a light that was moving east. It was a single
white light and it was not flashing like the ones you find
on a typical aircraft. No colour and no sound. The object
was streaking to the east and then, the light went out.
I asked my friend about the direction it came from, he told
me that it came in from the south and made a smooth turn
towards the east. When it first came in, it wasn't very
bright - about the brightness of an ordinary star. At first,
the object seemed to be above Jupiter. But then, it dropped
down below it. My friend said he aimed a large flashlight
at it and switched it on. The object suddenly became as
bright - if not brighter - as the magnitude of Jupiter and
started moving closer. When my friend realized what was
happening, he shut the flashlight off. As he did this, the
object became dimmer. As it moved on toward the east, he
switched the flashlight back on and the light became brighter
once again and remained the same until it went dim and disappeared
of witnesses withheld. For educational purposes only.
