Saskatoon, Saskatchewan A Triangular Shaped UFO
Date: January 6, 2009
Time: 12:30 a.m.
Location of Sighting: Southeastern part of the sky, Saskatoon.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Triangular.
Full Description of event/sighting: I actually saw this object twice. The other night I had the munchies, so I walked the block to 7-11 for some chips. The minute I walked out the door of 7-11, something caught my eye. In the southeastern part of the sky just below and on the left side of Orion's belt I could see some lights, blue with some red intermittently blinking. I stopped and watched it for a bit, thinking it was probably an airplane and waited for it to fly out of sight. But it didn't move.
I crossed the street, continuing to watch it. I could almost make out a triangular shape, with the red blinking light running up and down one of its three sides. However, it was cold (which creates strangely-colored lights with stars), and my contacts are not up-to-date, which meant I had to sort of squint to watch.
I then figured it must have been a satellite. Although it seemed fairly close and any sort of satellite that close to Earth would have shown some movement, right? I walked into the alleyway and stopped to stare again. No movement, but it was blinking (twinkling) more rapidly. I stopped again beside the apartment across the street and stared some more. It still didn't move...which made me think it must have been a star. But what kind of star had three sides in an equilateral triangle? With different colored twinkles, one of them seemingly running on a line from one point to another? I stopped again beside my apartment building and kept staring. Someone walked by to get into the apartment and gave me the weirdest look before going in...and why not? Here was some chick standing by the door with a bag of chips in hand, staring intently into the sky with her mouth wide open. I decided to grab my camera and look at it with the zoom lens.
When I got back out there and turned my camera on, my battery died then and there. I had no more batteries. So I stood there staring a while longer before heading back inside, wondering what the hell it was.
So, that is what I saw. A UFO was my first thought, wiped out by more logical thinking that didn't add up. And whether there's a good explanation or a sci-fi explanation for it, I do not know.
Thank you to the witness for their sighting report.
