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.
August 20th 2006 : Edmonton, Alberta
South Edmonton, Alberta Cluster Of Lights In Formation
Date: August 20, 2006
Time: 1:00 a.m.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 8
Shape of objects: Cluster of lights in formation.
Full Description of event/sighting: My friend was walking me home across the field between our houses, on the south side of Edmonton. Suddenly a small cluster of lights appeared on the northern edge of the horizon. There were maybe about 6-8 small points of white light, and they were in formation such that there were two 'rings' of lights one above the other, it made me think of an octagonal tube. They were moving very fast across the sky, much faster than a plane or a helicopter would have been able to travel, and they were rotating in formation as they moved, so that the basic shape of the formation seemed more or less maintained. They were not overly bright, seeming almost dim or immaterial at times, more like glowing points of light than really bright spotlights. The word that came to mind was "cloud of lights" but more structured.
I stopped dead when I saw it, and followed it's trajectory silently halfway across the sky (thinking I was crazy) before I said to my friend "Do you see that?" and pointed it out. She also saw what I have described. She didn't see it right away, but was wondering what I was looking at until I pointed it out to her. It almost seemed insubstantial at times, as it moved, probably because of the kind of rotating movement it was describing as it traveled, and because of its great speed. We watched it out of range to the south. It only took a few seconds for it to cross the entire night sky.
We were (and I still am) really freaked out. I've never seen anything like this before. I know I saw it, only because I have a witness to confirm it. I found one other similar sounding story on this website, also from Edmonton, but other than that nothing seems similar to what we saw tonight.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
