UFO Sighting Report - Canada
May 10th 2008 : Southeast Manitoba
Southeast Manitoba Canada Two Horizontally Oriented Rectangles
Date: May 10, 2008
Time: 10:40 p.m.
Location of Sighting: SE Manitoba.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of Objects: 2
Shape of Objects: Rectangular.
Full Description of Event/Sighting: I was in a campground in southeast Manitoba between the villages of Sundown and Piney, roughly 10 km. from the US border (Minnesota) when I looked to the southeast and saw 2 horizontally oriented rectangles fairly close together, one above the other. They were a bright white with no other colours evident. They appeared to move in unison in a roughly circular fashion; that is, not in a continuous circle, but moving haphazardly in a space in the sky that occupied roughly the size of my outstretched fist. This continued for several minutes. At that time the objects merged and became one. There were no obstructions to my view such as tree branches or leaves...they clearly merged in a split second and became simply one rectangle. After several minutes they split and became 2 again. There was no sound at all and it's impossible to guess their distance from my location, but I'd guess it was more than a few miles at minimum. After 10 to 15 minutes of watching I turned in for the night, but it's something I'll never forget. I've since become a member of MUFON, and posted the sighting on one of their talk forums. I've yet to hear of a similar sighting at any time or any place.
I contacted Chris Rutkowski, Manitoba's go-to guy with regards to UFOs and said a friend had suggested possibly the US government was deploying silent drones near the Canada-US border. Chris said the only drones at that time might have been near the US-Mexico border.
I've been following the subject of UFOs for years, read many a book on the subject and believe I know the difference between what I saw and objects in everyday life. It was NOT the moon, any aircraft known to man nor any star or planet. I don't believe shooting stars, meteors or meteorites exhibit this kind of behavior, nor would any space station or satellite. Have you ever heard of similar sightings from southeast Manitoba or northwest Minnesota, or from anywhere, for that matter?
Thank you to the witness for their sighting report.
