Witnesses terrified by UFO as they catch it on video

A couple in the town of Saint John in New Brunswick, Canada captured a strange light zipping around the sky on video. John Edwards says he and his girlfriend were terrified as the objected seemed to fly in close to their home and watch them.

The video was captured and posted to YouTube on the evening of October 20, 2014. Edwards told CBC News, “I think it was watching us at this point. It was terrifying. I was hiding behind the curtain.”

In the video (seen above) you can hear Edwards and his girlfriend watch the light buzzing over the city in excitement, that is until it moved closer to them and hovered a short distance away.

In the video you can hear Edward’s girlfriend say, “My heart is beating like a mile a minute.”

Then she tells Edwards, “By the way, that’s a UFO.”

He replies, “I know.”

Edwards told CBC News,  “I almost felt like whatever it was knew I was watching with my camera.”

He continued, “It was really a weird creepy feeling. but it circled around at that point and came all the way back and went across the street basically and watched us through the window.”

As the object hovered nearby, it suddenly disappeared. Edwards explained what happened next, “It disappeared down behind the houses as I was watching it, and at that point we got in the car and we drove and we went looking for it and we couldn’t find it. And we actually ended up driving all the way to the airport looking for it again.”

They never did find the object again, nor have they been able to figure out what they had caught on camera, but Edwards said it felt like an invasion of privacy.

CBC News say they “put in calls to the City of Saint John, the Saint John Airport and the Saint John Police Force, asking if anyone knew what the UFO was or who was responsible, but as of Thursday afternoon, had not gotten any answers.”

CBC News suggests the lights may have been a drone. Coincidentally, the day after Edward’s sighting, Transport Canada put in place new guidelines for drones. These include for hobbyist not to fly at night, and to avoid airports and populated areas.

Transport Minister Lisa Raitt warned, “When you fly an unmanned aircraft, and you put people’s safety at risk, it is against the law.”

In Canada, if you plan to fly a drone larger than 35 kilograms, you need a special permit. Transport Canada says last year they issued 945 permits, a 500 percent increase from 2011.

Incredible UFO video captured by Western Canadian news agency

On July 17, 2014, local news reporters covering a wildfire inadvertently got more than they were looking for. Thirty-seven seconds into their news report they show a clip of a water tanker dropping fire retardant, and above the mountain an object can be seen shooting out of the clouds across the sky. The video changes to another clip before the object can be seen leaving the field of view of the camera.

The original news report can be seen below. An enhanced version of the UFO can be seen above.

The video was captured by the website Castanet.net, a news site that covers Western Canada. They recently posted an article about the attention the UFO is getting in their video. In it they say the original witness reported:

Shot out from the clouds above the mountain during a forest fire near our nieghbourhood. It pulled a wisp of cloud with it as it exited.

A forest fire broke out on the mountain behind us and during the attempt to put it out, this event took place.

I was watching a video online of the fire from a little earlier in the day and i spotted the UFO 37 seconds into the video. I have no idea whether anyone else has noticed this or not. Most folks would be focused on the fire.

37 seconds into the video the UFO comes shooting out from a cloud right above the mountain and passes through a clear spot back into the next cloud. I was quite startled and surprised when i saw it.

The UFO left a thin trail of cloud vaper as it exited the cloud. This, to me, eliminates any thought that this might be a camera lens artifact or light phenomenon effect.

The event lasted only a couple seconds. Judging by the distance i was from the object it had to have been moving very fast. The scene cuts away while the UFO is still visible. I’m left to assume that there must be more footage of it than i saw (sic).

I phoned the website’s news department to ask if it would be possible to see the full footage, but was met with disapproval. In retrospect, perhaps i shouldn’t have mentioned the word UFO. (lol)

The fire was near West Kelowna, about 225 miles northeast of Vancouver. Castanet News did not any offer any suggestions as to what it was they caught on video. However, people have suggested that it could be a bolide. A bolide is another term for a bright fireball or meteor.

Whatever it is, the imagery is incredible. The object clearly passes through the clouds and leaves a trail as it punches through the clouds. It is moving quick and horizontally. It doesn’t appear to maneuver, making it more difficult to rule out a bolide. However, it is very bright and large. We have found no reports of a meteorite landing in the area. Although, it is a remote area.

We have sent the video out to be reviewed by experts and will provide updates as we get them.

UFO video captured in Alberta, Canada

A man in Alberta was driving with a co-worker when they spotted some strange lights in the sky. They caught it on video and took some pictures before it made a strange sound, causing them to retreat to the car where they found the radio was not working and most of their pictures were gone.

This sightings was reported to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), and was posted on the Huffington Post by MUFON’s Communications Director Roger Marsh. The witnesses were driving From Hinton east to Edson, about 150 miles east of Edmonton. It was about 1:45 am when the driver noticed some green and red blinking lights just above the tree line in the distance.

They didn’t take notice at first. They assumed it was just a low flying airplane. However, as they got closer they noticed the object was not moving and it appeared to be very large. When they got near the grove of trees the object hovered over they saw that the lights were many different colors, blue, purple, red, green, and pulsated quickly. They also noticed a dome on the bottom of the craft that emitted a “white/yellow” light that illuminated the trees beneath it.

They stopped the truck to take pictures with their phones. They estimated the object was only about 400 feet away at this point, and they said it appeared to be the size of six cars wide. Unfortunately, they had a hard time seeing the object in the screen of their phones. However, the witness took a minute of video and several pictures. The other witness also got some pictures.

The witness decided to try and use the flash on the phone’s camera to see if the object would respond. The first flash didn’t seem to cause any reaction. However, when they witness flashed again, the object emitted a “high pitch 2 tone sound lasting for maybe 7 seconds.”

This scared the two, so they got back in the car. They had been listening to a Hinton radio station. However, the radio was now just static. They assumed this had to do with the UFO. They felt it was about time they got out of there, so they got back on the road.

Later, they noticed that their phones also must have been affected. Although they had taken several pictures, only one remained. The video was also supposed to be a minute long, but it was only 8 seconds.

The witness says, “This by far was the weirdest and most interesting experience I have ever had.”

Here is the full unedited report by the witness:

We were coming back from late night work coming from Hinton AB on HWY 16 coming towards Edson, AB where it happened about 4 kilometers before town of Marlobo heading east.

While driving I noticed on the north side of the highway green and red lights low with in treeline, it was 1:45 am and it was very dark, the trees are bare no leaves as this is early spring here so I thought it was low flying airplane as they carry the Green and Red light, I thought I’ve seen an airplane flying low on the horizon through the trees.

As I was getting closer I noticed these lights were not moving and they appeared bigger, it was nothing of significance to us as we thought it was perhaps some sort of tower…

Finally we passed the small grove of trees and were able to have the direct visual on these lights, we’ve seen red, green, blue / purple light blinking sort of pulsating around quite fast, there was also a light at the bottom like a dome light rotating a beam of white/ yellow light illuminating ground and trees.

We stopped the truck and parked on the shoulder looking at this thing and wondering what are we seeing, we got out of the truck to snap some photos with our cell phones, the truck was put on park idling with radio playing – local Hinton music radio station, we were in front of that thing with in 400 ft distance as it was just above the trees across the highway right in front of us, it was very dark and the lights it was projecting were very bright sort of blinding us, we tried to catch this object on the camera but you could not see it in the lcd display.

I snapped 2 pictures without flash to see if I could capture something as I was looking through the pics my friend yelled that the object moved to the right abruptly, I set up my cell phone on vide record mode and recorded the event, I finally could see the object if I zoomed on it all the way although this object was 300-400 ft in front of us fairly large maybe 6 cars wide, I could hardly see it on my cell phone cam. I recorded about a minute of video, and we honestly got a bit freaked out , but I wanted to see it move, so we stayed a bit longer and I noticed that the object drifted slowly to the left, I then thought that maybe that thing is projecting the lights maybe I should use cell cam flash to signal a couple flashes as a form of communication , I got my phone again I snapped once and nothing happened, but when I sent the next flash that thing suddenly made a high pitch 2 tone sound lasting for maybe 7 seconds, we got afraid a bit so we jumped back in the truck and decided it was time to go…, what we noticed inside the cab was a static noise of the radio, where we pulled over to investigate the object, we were listening to Hinton music station , now there was nothing but static noise, upon that we realized we just seen UFO wich interacted with the truck’s radio, we took off rather fast leaving that thing behind , it did not attempt to follow us or either left, it just sat there over the trees.

We were quite disturbed, it was mine and my co-workers first time witnessing ufo event especially that close , we talked about that all the way to Edmonton, we stopped in Edson to have a look at the photos and to our surprise we hardly had any photos on the phones…, I shot 4 pictures in total made about a minute long video all I have on my phone is one picture and 8 seconds video, my friend shot over 6 photos, his phone did not record a single photo.

This by far was the weirdest and most interesting experience I have ever had.

Marsh says that MUFON Canada is investigating the case. The UFO video can be seen here.

UFOs photographed in Alberta, Canada

A mother and her daughter spotted UFOs flying over their home outside of Nanton in southern Alberta, Canada on Sunday, and were able to snap a couple of pictures. Neighbors reported seeing the same objects earlier in the night.

Sam Martine and her daughter Baylie say they were watching TV at 11 pm when they noticed bright lights hovering over a nearby field. When they went to have a look, they say the lights started moving towards them. They passed right over the Martines’ home and continued to the northwest.

Sam told Nanton News, “The first light was about as big as a large yard light — that is what I thought it was at first — but very bright white.”

She says the lights hovered in the same place for a few minutes then began moving upwards. That is when the two went outside and the lights began moving towards them.

Sam says, “Then you could see red light and blue light and could hear it. It went over our house. The other light stayed still, then it started to move up  — but not as high as the first light— and again went over our house.”

Baylie attempted to take a picture of the objects with her cell phone, but it malfunctioned. Sam also had problems when she tried to take a picture with her DSLR camera. Sam said, “I could take pics of the sky but when I would aim at the lights flying, my camera would not work. Finally out the back of our place I finally got the camera to work.”

Sam was able to snap two pictures, one of which can be seen here.

Sam says she thinks the objects also startled her cattle. The next morning she found they had run through the fence, and were standing on a nearby hill. Luckily, none were lost and they could all be accounted for.

The Martines say they do not believe the objects were helicopters because they were not making any noise when they hovered. Sam says, “I’ve never seen anything like that before.”

Canadian UFO researcher Chris Rutkowski is not so sure what they Martines photographed is unusual. He told CBC News, “The tip offs are the red and blue lights, which are very common in aircraft.”

Robyn Foret, who is with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, agrees. He says, “The shaking of the object or the movement of the object — that looks like a camera with a time exposure that may have been bumped. It looked very sporadic.”

However, Sam and Baylie Martine were not the only two to see strange lights that night. About a mile northeast of the Martines’ farm, Pat and Donald Comstock saw lights they could not explain. Pat says she was in the kitchen knitting sometime between 9:30 and 10:00 pm when she noticed a bright light shining in the kitchen window.

She looked outside and saw two white lights, one higher than the other, coming towards their house. She called Donald to have a look, and they both went out to their deck to get a better view. They noticed that the lights were at the front of the objects.

Donald said the moon was bright enough to see that the objects were made of metal. He said they were dull metallic in color. The Comstocks do not believe the objects were helicopters, because they did not make noise like the local ambulance helicopter.

Pat reported her sighting to Nanton News after hearing about the Martines’ account. She figured that what she and Donald had seen were the same objects the Martines’ had seen when the objects made another pass by the neighborhood later that night.

CBC News notes that Alberta is no stranger to UFO sightings. Rutkowski recently co-authored a report called the Canadian UFO Survey documenting 1180 UFO Reports in 2013. Over 100 of the reports came from Alberta.
