UFO Sighting Report - Canada
Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO.
With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.

HBCC UFO Research took a telephone call from a fellow who resides in Lethbridge, Alberta. He stated that on August 1, 2006 he was at home and out on his deck talking to a friend and he was watching the storm clouds moving through his area. He was wondering and hoping to see some rain from the clouds as they have not had much in the way of rain for the last while. The witness said something very unusual caught his eye. It was a long cigar shaped black cloud off to the left of the cloud bank and lower in altitude. (which he indicates in a diagram he made)
As he watched and looked away for a few seconds then back again at the unusual dark object, he noticed there were a total of three of these dark objects off to the left of the main cloud bank. His best description would be that these three objects were perfectly straight sticks and black in color. The next weird thing that took place was that one of the long stick like objects moved independently and towards one of the other objects and then forming a "V" pattern and he said they were just hanging there in the sky by the larger cloud cover.
Eventually the man went running for his camera which was in his car, and still looking back to keep his eye on these strange objects, he noticed another black stick like object which now made a total of four sitting in the sky. This latter object moved to join the other single object and again formed a second "V" pattern. The two "V" shaped formations were side by side with the second "V" pattern slightly off angle with the first "V".
He opened the door of his car, grabbed his camera and when he turned around expecting to see the two "V" patterns in the sky they were gone. They just up and disappeared !
After the event had finished the fellow sat talking with his girlfriend for approximately 20 minutes when two jets flew over within approximately two minutes from one another and then a third jet followed the same flight path the other two had taken which was directly at this cloud bank, or where the two "V" formations were. The jets stayed parallel from each other as they crossed the sky. (Photos of the contrails are in this report).
HBCC UFO Research asked the gentleman if they were military aircraft. The witness said he could not be sure due to their high altitude. The witness also told me that two of the aircraft returned following the same flight path they originally were traveling. Same parallel lines could be noted due to their contrails. All these jet aircraft were seen in a five minute time period.
The guy's girlfriend was very excited about seeing so many aircraft fly across the sky at almost one time. Like the fellow said, Lethbridge isn't a very busy place. The witness told me there was a little bit of light behind the two stick shaped "V" patterns. A flare of light he said.
Thank you to the witness for the report, pictures and diagram. Photos Are © 2006 S.C.
