UFO Sightings Over Ramsey Lake Sudbury Ontario Canada

Report received on March 17, 2019.

Date:  Mid 1970’s
Time:  First sighting approximately 4:00 p.m. and the second approximately 7:00 p.m.

Number of objects: One each sighting.
Shape of object: Star-like glitter with no discernible shape.
Colour of object: Silver or white.

Full Description of Event/Sighting: First sighting, going swimming mid July around 4:00 p.m. with a friend. He pointed up into a clear blue sky and asked what that was. We watched this star-like object sitting in the sky for several seconds, then dart in a straight line a short distance (H, pup hard to describe actual distance, the object being, or appearing to be very high up, but from our perspective, several feet at a time). We watched it zig, then zag, for about a minute, then zoom away very quickly.

Second time was a year later. A friend several miles away saw it, called me, told me that he had called the Sudbury Airport to see if their radar saw anything. The airport said nothing was showing on the radar in the area he suggested. He asked me to walk up a hill in back of our house that had a good view of the immediate surroundings, and suggested I look to the west.

It was a five minute walk to get to the top of the hill where I had a good view of much of Ramsey Lake. After a few minutes I spotted a star-like object that acted exactly like the object my other friend and I witness a year earlier. On this occasion it was also a sunny evening with few clouds in the sky. I watched the object zig and zag around for a minute or so before it zoomed (or was blown) off at high speed.

My best guess for both sightings is a sheet of Mylar or some other bright material glinting off the sun. Probably not related, but there are several small islands in Ramsey lake, and when I hiked to one of them in January with a compass (I was learning how to use the compass) the needle began bouncing back and forth. The Sudbury basin was formed after a meteorite crashed into the area about 1.8 million years ago, and has a high concentration of nickel and copper.

Thank you to the witness for their reports.

Military Personal Observe And Pick Up UFO On Radar Adak Island Alaska

 Report received March 10, 2019.

Date:  Spring/Summer 1965

Hi.  I was stationed on Adak from August 1964 to August 1965.  I work in control tower. I don't remember exact date, but believe it was Spring/Summer 1965. I was working night shift. We saw lights over harbor NE of of airfield. No contact. Called down to GCA unit. They checked their radar and had a target. 

The base commander or vice arrived in tower. The weather was good and a arriving P3 Orion said the had it visual and on aircraft radar too. They started towards towards it and it departed NW at a high rate of speed. The lights and radar target had been staying fairly stationary until the P3 headed towards it. 

The guys in GCA estimated speed in excess of 2000mph when it departed. I logged it. I don't know what other agencies documented.  We were just told to not discuss it. 

If anyone else has any information on this sighting, would you please contact me (Brian Vike)

Two Hovering UFOs/Objects Over The Flight Line At The Loring A.F.B Northeastern Maine

Report was received on February 14, 2019.

Date:  Around 1963
Time:  Evening.

My name does not matter, and for obvious reasons will not be mentioned here. I was an airman assigned to a SAC (Strategic Air Command) base known as  Loring A.F.B  in northeastern Maine on or about 1963.

I was assigned to the "3080th" Squadron (ourselves and the "dogmen" near the flight line. I, among most others, did not have clearance to the "instant ",  yes; there was indeed an incident.

We (ourselves and the dogmen, who were the only "troops" out there, were lounging et al  on an evening when our normal activities were interrupted by whispers and a low type muttering and whispering (buzzing ) of voices indicating that something was going on (at that time we had "52's w/atomic warheads up 24/7 and the need for secrecy was obvious (everything was underground") .

AP's began streaming in from the flight line and all telling the consistent story of an incident supra that had occurred. To wit: these men were not prone to exaggeration or inaccurate opinions or facts, they were specifically trained to observe and respond to any threat that would interfere with the security and safety of the base and any conceivable threat that might possibly occur.

They were very level .com. We intermingled, and all, in concert, told the same story. The 2nd shift was set to leave their shift, and in the interim, the 3rd shift was arriving to (push them out, (relieve them)  but both shifts were still there. The squadron commander was called- the base commander was awakened and all were there to witness the exact same thing.

There were (2) orbs hovering over the flight line approximately (10-15 ' above the surface, not "distant objects in the remote sky at night",  not a remote seemingly strange apparition, they were right f.....g there! In fact, they were there in excess of an hour.

There was no one delirious, screaming or commotion that would accompany lesser men, just simply emphatic and relatively calm reaction to a very real situation. This is, in essence, what I was told. I believed them then  and I still believed them now, to the best of my knowledge and belief, etc. 

Thank you to the person for their report.

Continuous Line Of Bright Red Objects Flying Over Upminster U.K.

 Report received February 10, 2019.

Date:  December 26, 2010
Time:  Approx.: 10:00 p.m.

Hi Brian, although a bit late, I would  like to tell you about something I saw on Boxing Day night 2010 outside our house in Upminster U.K.

There was a continuous line of bright red orbs travelling from south to north above the roof line of houses.

I was unable to determine height, but as approaching north climbed altitude and shrunk to infinity as they travelled. 

They were below the flight of commercial air craft.

This happened about 10:00 p.m. and it was a clear dark night.

I have never seen anything like this and it looked like they were travelling at the speed of a low flying jet, with no noise. Best wishes.

Slow Moving Triangular Shaped UFO White Rock Lake Dam Dallas Texas

Date:  Approx. January 21, 2019 ?
Time:  Approx. 7:00 p.m.

I don't member what day it was.  Approximately 2 weeks ago. I estimate around 7:00 p.m. 

It was a dark night. Still enough cars on the road to feel like evening rush hour. Wife, I, and 5 year old granddaughter had just left a restaurant in the retail strip center just below White Rock Lake dam.  I don't look for these things, haven't thought much about them. 

This was so low you couldn't miss it. So many cars on the road. Someone else had to have seen it. We were in the car, just turned left off Gaston, onto Garland Road. Right there you immediately go under a little railroad trestle and then there is a slight climb up the hill, the dam is on the left. 

The triangle was over Garland Road right there, low enough that almost impossible to miss. Quiet and barely moving if at all. The point (direction) was south based on the lights on the bottom – white rectangular shaped lights, like dashes, one straight line from the southern point bisecting the triangle, and then splitting, a Y, the 2 lines going to the 2 corners. 

There were so many cars around. Traffic was moving. I opened my sun roof and was going to try for a picture with my phone, but we were no longer under it. I didn't go back to follow or make a big deal because my wife thinks I'm a conspiracy nut already. 

I said do you see that. She didn't look and was in the backseat with our granddaughter. Would not have been able to see it anyway.

I live close to the lake and will keep my eyes open, and spend some time on your website. So many things going on now.  I am using my phone now, not easy.


Thank you to the eyewitness for their sighting report.

Bright Neon Green Light Near Sandbanks Prince Edward County Ontario Canada (Photos/Video/Diagram)

Date:  July 10, 2018
Time:  2:45 a.m.

On July 10, 2018 while at camp off Lake Ontario near Sandbanks in the Prince Edward County Ontario.

It was our first night at camp I was up quite late and admiring the clear night sky when I noticed to the west a very bright neon green light high in the sky.

It appeared to be near almost stationary over Lake Ontario slightly to the southwest. I watched it for about 10 - 20 seconds and then I grabbed my camera and zoomed in 30 X on night shot.

 Here are the results of what has been captured at 2:45 a.m. This was the first sighting of the three in the wee hours of the morning night.

After just filming it for about minute and half I continued to watch some more minutes then it appeared to move further west.

Attached are picture enhancements from the Video Clip.

Huge Neon Green Ball Witness Back In 1999. (Diagram)

Also back in August 1999 around 2:30 a.m.

I again alone witnessed same color ball whizzed pass in incredible speed. The shocking part is that it was like the size of the full moon. It even had a wake in front of it.

Thanks once again for your interest into the matter. So glad you are back to take reports.

Round/Disc Shaped UFO Or Radioactive Meteorite Collingwood Ontario (Newspaper Clipping)

I received this fascinating report on January 6, 2019.

Date:  Summer of 1965 (?)
Time:  Approx: 9:30 p.m.

Hello Brian, my name is (removed) and I am retired and live in Lake Country, British Columbia, but grew up in the mid-sized southern Ontario town of Collingwood until I left in 1969. I am wondering whether you would be able to suggest a direction for me to pursue as a (late!) follow-up on a UFO sighting I shared with my family and a friend of mine back in the summer of 1965? It’s an experience seeking an answer that I’ve carried around in the back of my head for over 50 years now!

Briefly, around 9:30 p.m. we sighted a round/disc shaped UFO for about a 30-60 second duration. The following morning some potential physical evidence/residue was reported, retrieved, measured locally and sent off for further analysis. There was no mention of the UFO in the resulting newspaper article since we were likely the only people who witnessed it.

We called the local radio station shortly after our sighting and they hadn’t heard a thing. The item reportedly had substantial measurable radioactivity (‘75% of a possible 90%’) and it was suggested to be a meteorite. The local police notified some people at the University of Toronto (I am pretty sure it was U of T) and personnel were dispatched from there to collect and analyze it. After that, zero information, trail ends!

A radioactive meteorite is more than a rarity. From what I can determine there has never been a documented case measuring in the range this one apparently registered. We didn’t witness the UFO ejecting anything but the trajectory and timing may be much more than a coincidence. The suggestion that the object is related to the UFO and in fact may represent some physical evidence is, to me extremely tantalizing.

I have a copy of the related newspaper report on the “meteorite” from the archives of the local paper. I can share more detail as required, but for the sake of brevity on this e-mail I kept to the basics.

My thoughts are to find a local enthusiast/sleuth (from the home town of my youth or nearby) who has the interest and tenacity to find out more about the radioactive “meteorite”. Perhaps there is a regional UFO association with members who would take this on. I would be more than willing to work with any local dedicated party from my distant current residence.

What do you think?

I’d appreciate any feedback.

Brian Vike’s Note: I had the fellow contact Chris Rutkowski in Canada as if anyone would have information on this, I think Chris might.

Additional Information:

Thanks Brian for you quick response.

The only person who may still be around is my school chum whom I haven’t been in touch with since the early 70’s. I will try to track him down. My mother and father were the other 2 witnesses and are both deceased. A 5th  party (missed the sighting (nature had called him to the loo) became extremely agitated when he entered the excited atmosphere immediately following our sighting. ‘Agitated’ is putting it mildly, he was extremely upset because he refused to accept that we were serious!

He too I’ve lost touch with, he was from Anne Arbor, Michigan. He ended up in Vietnam and we were still corresponding then, but at some point he quit responding. I thought the worst, but I never found his name on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, so that is a positive. As a side-note 9  months later he was totally freaked out once again when the “swamp gas” (Hynek’s handle) UFO flap occurred in his own backyard.

I will reach out to Chris Rutkowski thank you. Yes I would like to remain nameless where possible although I suppose it doesn’t much matter at this point in my life. The reason I was reluctant to pursue in previous years had more to do with the time I devoted to my family and career along with the inevitable dose of ridicule which accompanies personal UFO confessions. Although I’m certain there is more acceptance today than years prior.

I have attached a scan of the article and if you think appropriate.

Again, thanks for your assistance.

Brilliant Arc Shaped Object Oshawa Ontario

Date:  September 29,2018
Time:  4:45 p.m.

Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Arc shaped.
Colour of object: Brilliant White.

Full Description of Event/Sighting: Today Saturday, September 29, 2018 at 4:43 p.m. EST I was admiring clear skies just perfect for a UFO watch. 

I took my camera on full 30 X zoom southward over Lake Ontario. Distance 3- 4 miles away - 3- 5000 feet in altitude a guess when I noticed this strange white aerial anomaly moving across the sky east to west.

I then turn on my video at full zoom as it moved miles across the sky, it's appearance look 'arc' shaped and brilliant white in color, more in length than roundness.

Bright Light Observed Two Times Over Crofton British Columbia

Date:  December 30, 2018
Time:  5:00 a.m.

This month December 2018, I have seen a bright light 2 times over Crofton.

It was near tree line, hovering, then slowly moved up over trees. Then disappeared. I have had problems with my internet and cell phones.

I dropped my niece this morning (December 30, 2018) around 5:00 a.m. at Nanaimo airport and on the way back I could see the ball of light in the sky.

It would be in direction east over ocean. The other sighting was a week before Christmas.

Additional Information:

Yes it was again in the east above trees. Seem to be between Crofton and Salt Spring Island. Around the same time as first sighting. 4:30 - 5:00 a.m.

My daughters saw this also. There were other sightings in Crofton above the ocean, 3 orange balls blinking, fading in and out, then moving up into sky then disappear.

One of my daughters saw this too. This was before the other ones, in the east again. In the evening, I don’t remember the time & date. I thought they were planes, but they did not fly like planes.

Thank you.

Pillar Of Orange Light St Albert Alberta (Video)

Date:  December 28, 2018
Time:  From approximately 8:35 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Hey, yep so I saw the bright light from my clinic in St Albert and so did my colleague (and many others according to a St. Albert Facebook page.). My colleague's brother and my friend saw it from 137 Avenue area.

I have pictures from both locations.

Lots of people suggesting that it was due to the large flares at the refinery yesterday, with the light from that reflecting off the ice crystals in the air.

It was phenomenal to watch. Lasted about 25 minutes, from approximately 8:35 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

She Won’t Forget The Night Of The Hovering Blue Capsule Shaped Object/UFO

Date:  Late August 2008.
Time:  After midnight.

Report received August 26, 2018.

I found your site while entering a description of what  saw in Google search.

It was late August of 2008 when this occurred. I was up late watching "The Bishop's Wife" an old black and white film. Usually, I would fall asleep when watching it and had never seen the ending. The film ended and I was congratulating myself on having finally seen the whole thing.

I turned off the TV and took a plate into the kitchen, rinsed it off and put it in the dishwasher. I say all this to illustrate I was wide awake. It was about 1:30 a.m. and I put the leash on my little dog to take him outside. I looked across the street that winds through the community of condos at a neighbor's house and there was a glowing lavender-blue capsule-shaped object, roughly the size of a door or telephone booth and suspended without any support in mid-air, with the bottom of it at the level of the gutter of the two-story condo. The roof of the condo was a hip roof.

There was no noise emanating from the capsule and I had the feeling that whatever had been inside it was not inside, but outside. In the area where I live at the time of year in question, there is a lot of summer night noise, crickets, tree frogs and katydids etc. at night, but it was absolutely silent. I had an eerie feeling and while part of me wanted to explore further, you know, walk up closer and get a better view, I was so creeped-out that I just wanted to go back inside.

I had the distinct feeling that if I was watching it, then it was also watching me. I locked the French door and closed the blinds. I thought briefly of turning out the lights and going out the front door to be less noticeable, but it was so eerie that I decided against it. I did turn out all the lights and went upstairs to look out the window that was directly above the French door (the side of my building that faced the object).

I half-expected it to be gone, but it was still there. I watched for several minutes and then went to bed. But I set my alarm for two hours so I could check and see if it was still there. When I got up, it was still there so I set my alarm for another 2 hours. I wondered if I would be able to see it better and identify when it got light outside.

When I got up 2 1/2 hours later, as it was just becoming light out, it was gone.

I moved from the condo two months later (to Ireland for a few months), but have since driven by that spot (I've even used Google street view maps to revisit where I saw the capsule, estimating the height of it, reliving in my head the strangeness of that night. At times there seems to be an influence to forget about it, to "go back to sleep", but I know it was real. I was wide awake when it happened, I felt it's presence,-as if someone had come quietly into a room, but you still know they are there. There was also the sense at the time that I should just let it get on with the business of why it was here.

I have tried Googling glowing blue capsule shaped object, but cannot find any photo of what I saw. It looked rather like a "bug zapper" without any housing or hanging apparatus--- but it was exactly that color.

Has anyone else reported anything like this? Sometimes I feel obsessive or anxious about it, wanting validation that this really was a sighting and alternately there's the feeling from outside myself to forget it, like something wants me to forget about it.

Thank you for allowing me a forum to share my story.

A Large Orange Object Hovering Close To The Clouds Guelph Ontario

Date:  June 16, 2018
Time:  Evening.

Hi, last Saturday my friend was having a horseshoe tournament in his backyard in Guelph when we spotted a large orange pulsating object hovering very close to the clouds.

It moved to the left very slowly and then to the right and headed out to space while speeding up. It was a big surprise.

Bright Light Lit Up The Entire Sky Near Black Diamond Alberta

Date:  2017 ?
Time:  Evening.

I did have one other encounter back when I was around 18 while camping with 3 friends near Black Diamond Alberta. I think the river we were camping by is called the Sheep River.

We were playing cards at the pick-nick table, (it was private land, we had permission to camp on it). 

We heard something go through the river so we got into the camper for some safety in case it was a bear. Not long after we went into the camper and continued playing cards it was pitch black night outside. All of a sudden the sky lit up super bright white, I looked out the window and it was blinding bright.

It was lit for from what I recall for a couple minutes roughly. Then just as quickly as it came it was gone completely. There was no sounds outside when the light was shinning.

Not sure what it was. No alcohol or drugs were ever involved.
