Full Description of event/sighting: After reading an entry in the 1970's from Lethbridge Alberta I thought I would share my story as it seems very similar. I went along on a sheep hunting trip with 3 other electricians that I was working with. We drove west of Pincher Creek behind the Shell gas plant into a canyon which was about 8 miles off the main road. Our truck broke down and it was decided that 2 of us would stay with the broken truck and 2 would walk back. Brian and I stayed with the truck which was parked facing east. The night sky was brilliant and I noticed what looked like a star bouncing around. I tried to rationalize it. After watching it about 5 minutes I asked (name removed) if he was watching it and he said he was.

This star/UFO was moving very fast, zipping back and forth doing 90 degree turns etc. I guessed that it was about 20 - 30 miles away. It didn't get any closer to us. We watched it for at least an hour and a half before I fell asleep...it was cold out -5 Celsius and we were in sleeping bags. Our partners showed up and when I looked into the sky it was gone.

Last year in 2003 I shared this story with a very good friend of mine that spends a lot of time in the area south of Pincher Creek. He told me he has seen this light performance several times now in the last few years. He has seen the object split into 2 and sometimes 3.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
