UFO Sighting Report - Canada

September 24th 2007 : Edmonton, Alberta


Edmonton, Alberta A Stationary Blimp Shaped UFO

Date: September 24, 2007
Time: 11:55 a.m.

Location of Sighting: Approximately 25 km SW of Edmonton, on a secondary road.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Sort of blimp shaped, but longer and narrower. I first thought it was a jumbo passenger jet that had been shortened to about half its normal length.

Full Description of event/sighting: Five of us were bicycling together on a secondary road about 25 Kms SE of Edmonton. It was a cloudless day with no wind. We were traveling due west, the sun was on my left. Crossing a gravel intersection I glanced to my right to ensure there was no traffic, we were traveling about 20 kph, in single file, I was second in line.

Something made me look up and I saw this pure white object, stationary in the sky. The brilliant, pure whiteness was startling and made me take a second look. It was like a cloud except it didn't have rough edges but had a clear outline, smooth, like an airplane. I then thought it might be a reflection of the sun off of a cloud but there was not another cloud in the entire sky.

The second thing that made this seem odd to me was there was no sound. Traveling on a bike in the countryside there is an almost absence of noise, it's common to hear the birds chirping. There was zero sound except the hiss of tires on pavement.

The next odd thing was the object was motionless. It just didn't move. A plane would have had sufficient motion to be detectable. I know it wasn't a blimp because there are never any blimps in the Edmonton area, if there had been one that day it would have been on the news.

As we continued riding, I pointed at it and yelled to the guy in front "What do you make of that?" Before he could look a row of trees blocked our view of that part of the sky,but the guy behind me immediately shouted "I saw it too, (name removed)."

We cleared the trees within 30 seconds and looked again. The sky was empty. Nothing. No sign of anything ever being there. No vapor trail, no blimp drifting away, no airplane in the distance. (We hadn't seen a plane all morning.) Nothing.

And still no sound. At no time did any of us hear any noise from above us, like a jet engine or a propeller plane.

We discussed what it might have been, we both agreed on the general description and jokingly said it must have been a UFO. As the days passed I continued to think about it and am now convinced that whatever it was it wasn't a human-made object.

Again, it was it's pure white color, the shape, the total absence of sound and the way it was stopped, dead still, in the sky that all contribute to my conviction that this was not a normal object.

Thank you to the witness for their interesting report.
