UFO SIGHTING REPORT
Late August 2002
Northern Lake, Manitoba
Date: Late August 2002
Time: approximately 3:00 p.m.
Shape of objects: disc, circular
It happened late August. I live in Manitoba (Canada) and just to the Southwest corner of Riding Mountain National Park are a few lakes. I stay at Northern Lake. It was approx. 3:00 p.m... Variable cloud, otherwise a very clear sky. I had been out fishing for a few hours that day and the fish were slow at biting from the heat of summer. I was just about to come in to the shoreline somewhat from the center of the lake. I reeled in and set the rod in the boat. I felt a strong gust of wind, having been fairly calm all that day and week. It caused me to look up to the sky, suddenly there directly above me stationary in the sky was a silver disc object. The blue sky in contrast for the background. I could see the edge of a cloud float by above the disc, then blue sky again. It was up a distance in altitude but not to the clouds. I was rather shocked, it is not what you expect to see.
The first thought: I was just seeing things, quickly I realized that what I was looking at was really there. I was in awe, my heart was racing..it was there for 1 to 2 minutes then it went straight up. The accent was different from any flying machine that I know of. It had instantaneous movement and it was very smooth. There was no contrail of any sort..nor was there any sounds from it, not that I could hear (the boat was idling) the ship (object) itself was not huge but not small from what I could see. I also noticed it to be smooth, but it was not close enough for any other details to be revealed. The lake where the sighting took place is rather secluded and the are very few people there during the week days. It seems the classic scenario, perhaps it is..
I will be spending my entire spring and summer out there this year. I hope for another if not a close encounter. I will let you know if I do. It is strange, people, they just look at me as if I am weird or nuts. I want to shake them and make them open their eyes. But all I do is smile and tell them it is true. If you have any questions, or feel that I have missed something out. Please feel free to drop me a line as I said I will be around until Spring.
The object ..the thought..was not even in my mind until I looked up and saw what was up above.. the summer week was hot lifeless air..no wind at all..I looked up to see if a storm was coming or something . Only then did I realize that I was not by myself.
There were no lights that I could see...just a smooth silver disc object in the sky above me.
As mentioned the object was not close enough to reveal any other details to me...it seemed to be smooth in texture....but again...I feel I was not close enough.
When I first looked up..and saw the object...I began trying to figure out what I was looking at ....as the fact became more evident..my heart race increased and my breathing was more...intense...any other effects would more than likely be do to the increase breathing.
The boat was sitting in the water ...I was standing in the boat watching it..above me...from what I could see...it remained stationary for the entire time....then....wow....the way it moved...it was exciting...like watching a brand new concept.. and taking it all in, in awe. The craft was in motion instantly...no speed increase....just speed.
It's own shadow was evident on the north side of the object..as for reflection of light..there was a slight glint off it a couple times.
