Out There stories relating to "Canada UFO"

Friday, June 23, 2017

This object was photographed on June 17 at about 7:45 PM in Oshawa, Ontario. "It came out of nowhere" said wildlife photographer Ken Rice. It was visible for a short time, during which Rice managed to take two clear shots with his camera. He has been unable to identify it, and that goes for our photographic experts, too. It's not a computer graphic and if Mr. Rice's description of its speed of movement is correct, it isn't a balloon, either. This leaves "unidentified flying object" but don't assume that your Out There editor has concluded from this that aliens are now speeding around in giant pies.

The object is unidentified, and if anybody has seen or photographed anything similar, please send information to whitley@strieber.com and we will share it with Mr. Rice and the rest of the world.

Ken Rice is an accomplished wildlife photographer, as is evident from his Facebook Page.

Thanks to Coast to Coast AM for referring us to this story.

A Defense Department scientist was hunting in Ontario on August 28, 2013 at approximately 9:40 PM when he and his colleagues observed a brightly lit, dumbbell shaped UFO at an altitude of roughly 400 feet. He states in the interview he gave to MUFON: "I have been involved in operating systems in the past and this thing was coherent light, it was salty to the eyes to look at, like looking at a laser that had been passed through a de-fraction grading or something of that nature. It was not a focussed laser, it was a defocussed laser." He continued that "the vehicle looked like it was made of "a forged piece of mercury."

While his identity is known to the investigators involved, he prefers to remain anonymous. For more information about the longer video referred to in the interview footage provided and the white paper written by the scientist on his sighting, please contact MUFON directly. The links referred to in the video do not appear to be available.

This case is graded A-Probably True.

This video doesn't offer much visual information, but the witness description of what he was seeing is very precise: he was seeing a bright, diamond shaped object that appeared to be large. It was emitting a glow. He describes it as being above the water. There are no oil rigs in the area and it was not a light on a ship. He shone a flashlight at it without apparent response, but a moment later said "it's putting on quite a show." Shortly thereafter another light appeared above it. So perhaps his flashlight was indeed noticed. He described the shape as like a "spin top," and observed one object descend slowly toward the water.

This is not an enhanced video and it does not appear to be a star. Given his testimony, we rate this sighting B, likely true.

Another UFO was recorded in Esquimalt, BC, Canada in the evening of April 30. The local TV station did an excellent job of covering it, which you can watch here. In 2013, an object was filmed there at about 7 AM on February 23, 2013 that displays strange movement characteristic of many authentic UFO sightings. To see this video (filmed at a peculiar angle) click here. The more recent object may have been a drone, but it covers a lot of sky very quickly, which leaves room for the possibility that it was an unknown.

There are rumors that something unusual has crashed into frozen Lake Winnipeg on the Jackhead Indian Reservation in Manitoba. Out There has not been able to confirm these rumors, and some very dubious YouTube sites are milking the story for hits. The attached video has few hits, and there are elements of the object that are familiar to us from authentic videos. Of course, they could be familiar to hoaxers, too. Out There's take: something is may be happening on Lake Winnipeg, be it some sort of military operation, the recovery of a known object that has crashed, or the recovery of a crashed unknown.

Our photo experts are far from convinced by this footage:

Expert One:

"The NASA dialogue is probably from the unsuccessful landing of a Mars probe. If this were a UFO there would have been no discussion about whether its drogue chute deployed or not. The likelihood of a NASA tracking camera happening to pick up something like this at 200,000 feet is practically zero. Looks like intentionally degraded CGI to me."

Expert Two:

"The footage and audio is from the 2004 crash landing of the NASA "Genesis" craft in Utah. To see that footage, click here.

"Another red flag for me is the mysterious music. That tells you the clip has been edited, at least minimally, but more so that it's not a historical document. Nobody adds spooky music to authentic footage."

So now we have to ask, are we looking here at an attempt to hide something real behind a hoax, or is the whole story made up from beginning to end by people who get their income out of ad revenue from YouTube?

We'll keep watching for some stronger evidence from Lake Winnipeg.

A Canadian news agency covering a forest fire inadvertently captured this UFO image. Its angle of attack suggests it could be a meteor, but it if is one, it has a very unusual appearance. Possible unknown.

Pilots of an Air Canada flight out of Halifax reported seeing a drone 900 feet from their plane, at an altitude of 18,000 feet. The drone was tubular and had a vertical propeller. No commercially available drone has a radio range sufficient to enable it to fly to 18,000 feet, so either this was something constructed by a specialist, a military drone, or an unknown object. Whatever it was, it was doing something extremely dangerous and illegal.

This authentic video was shot at 8:44 PM on Feb 28 over Vancouver by Charles Lamoureux. In his detailed account posted on his YouTube channel, he states, "this bright UFO was not a satellite or anything else as per Heavens Above and other satellite applications, not an iridium flare, etc. Sighting occurred at 844 PM over Vancouver north descending behind the local mountain range in the Cypress park region. I must have seen over a dozen in a hour descend exact same area, some flashing, faster, but this one was so bright for sure there were more witnesses." 

The objects are not identifiable. Therefore this sighting is a confirmed unknown.

Low, slow moving triangles are among the most common unknowns sighted, and this is typical of the genre. These sightings probably do not involve secret aircraft because they have been going on at least since the 1970s.

This object was in the sky, not a CGI effect, but is it a UFO or a radio controlled blimp designed to appear to be a UFO? Frankly, without being able to gauge its size, I cannot come to a conclusion. Possible unknown.

This one was interesting enough for us to call on our experts. The video really starts to become clear 3 minutes in, and remains clear off and on through 7 minutes. Here is an expert opinion:

Looks and sounds pretty good. Seems to be an actual object, though it could easily have been one of those LED-equipped quadcopters -- its impossible to tell shape, size or distance in this video.

Misc. observations:

LaPrairie is a southeastern suburb of Montreal, so if the object were seen in the direction of the sunset, and at any significant distance from the camera, it would have been seen by many others. So far I can't find any other videos of this quite persistent sighting.

The date of the sighting is variously posted on YouTube as June 7, June 15 and July 15. June is most probable due to the woman's comment about the longest day of the year coming up.

The camera is a bit of a puzzle. It's a still camera that also shoots video, and is explicitly being handheld. It shakes convincingly enough (assuming image stabilization) except it never seems to tilt horizon-wise. Hard to say most of the time, but when we see the nearby lights it's fairly obvious. Maybe he was resting the camera on something -- a balcony railing, etc...

The comments being made by the observers seem genuine.

This object over Calgary is probably not a star. It's difficult to be certain looking at the non-enhanced video, but the witness could apparently see enough with the naked eye to be inspired to shoot this video. This is a probable unknown. December 26 seems to have been a busy night over Canada.

This image is of real lights in the night sky. It is not photoshopped. There is no flicker, and the speed of movement is too great for them to be candle lanterns. They are too bright to be LED lights suspended from balloons, and are not floating. These are genuine unknowns.

Brian Vike of the Vike Factor reports that there is a significant spike in UFO sightings in British Columbia at this time. Some of these sightings are exceptionally detailed, and suggest an extensive presence in the area at this time. We are also getting anecdotal reports of orbs of light entering peoples' homes from Southern California to British Columbia. So far, there have been four of these reports--not many, but more from a single region than we have ever before received at whitley@strieber.com. British Columbia was also the location of one of the best documented multiple witness close encounter cases of all times, the Corrina Saebels case. An interview with Corrina is available in the Dreamland Archive. February 23, 2008. To listen, search on the word Saebels in our search engine, then download the show after logging in as a subscriber.

This is just one example of dozens of similar UFO videos to appear over the past few weeks. There is a great deal of activity at present, so much that it has your Out There editor wondering just what is going on? Will there be more concrete developments? All I can say is, we shall see...
