UFO Sighting Report - Canada

1968 : Near Lake Glenmore, Calgary, Alberta


Near Lake Glenmore, Calgary Alberta UFO Stops And A Bright Flash Of Light

Date: Around 1968
Time: Approx: 10:00 p.m.

In Calgary in about 1968 we lived on the edge of town, near Lake Glenmore. About 10:00 p.m. I was looking SW over the foot hills it was dark so I assume it was May or June. The UFO flew too fast for a helicopter yet would stop and flash a bright light as if it were talking a picture, of several sections of ground, 5 or 10 square miles. The movement was fairly methodical, covering 10 miles rapidly then stopping for the picture, or the flash of white light. The movement seemed too fast for a jet & the fact that it stopped was why I labeled this sighting UFO. I don’t believe the British Harrier (sp) Jet was yet invented. The craft was too far away for any details on the structure, just the rapid movement & the flash of light. I was 13 or 14 at the time & it seems I heard a mention of the story around town but really just kind of kept quite about the sighting, I was the new kid in town. It is amazing that nearly 40 years later I can vividly recall that craft traversing the southern sky.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
