UFO Sighting Report - Canada
September 27th 2008 : Gibbons, Alberta
Gibbons, Alberta A Planet-Like Blob Of Light
Date: September 27, 2008
Time: 8:00 p.m.
Location of Sighting: Gibbons Alberta.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Planet-like blob of light.
Full Description of event/sighting: We were out walking in the valley that runs beside and through town when we spotted this bright light almost directly above us. It was the size of a Jupiter or Venus when they are at their largest and low on the horizon. So a very large blob of light and kind of orange-yellow like you would expect a planet or reflecting object to be.
We didn't realize it was moving at first because of the tree tops waving around and we were moving too, but then it became apparent that it was tracking East-by-North-East, and actually moving quite rapidly. Faster than an airplane or satellite.
There were no flashing lights whatsoever and the object did not change intensity or colour the entire time it was in view (two to three minutes).
We ran up the hill to follow it before we lost it behind the trees (which obscured a great portion of the sky from where we were down in the valley) but despite this it managed to disappear behind some treetops for about 10-15 seconds, during which it vanished.
When we emerged from the trees, there were no clouds in the vicinity of sky it vanished in.
I thought it was maybe the International Space Station, but this was in the wrong hemisphere at the time, and travels the opposite direction anyway. It also was not a weather balloon as the winds were very strong and heading south east, not E-NE. It was not a meteor because it was too slow, and left no vapor trail of any kind. It was not a plane since it was a single circular blob of light (much like a very large planet) with nothing flashing.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
