String Of Orange Lights In The Sky Over New Brighton Southeast Calgary Alberta

Date:  August 18, 2012
Time:  After 10:00 p.m.

Hi, we were sitting in my garden in New Brighton, SE Calgary just after 10:00 p.m. on August 18, 2012, when we noticed a string of orange lights traveling from south to north.

They appeared to be approximately the same distance apart, not blinking, moving at about the same rate of speed as a helicopter, but there was no sound.

They kept coming from the south, one after the other, heading north west.

We did hear a faint sound that sounded like fireworks, but by that time at least a dozen lights had passed over my house and it was only one pop. We didn't count from the beginning, but I would estimate 18 to 20 lights.

It appeared very strange and unnatural. Unfortunately, I did not grab a camera to document.

If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential.

Also, please feel free to send in your sightings that have happened years ago. So many of these older sightings are nothing short of amazing.

  1. We saw the same thing in the same area, at Elgin Hill (we were watching the fireworks from Globalfest...these lights stole the show) 17 brigh orb lights going across the sky and then disappearing, it was amazing. Then about 5 minutes later we saw what we thought was a shooting star above where these were coming over the horizon, however the bright white light fell very slowly over 4-5 minutes, nothing like any other shooting start we've ever seen, and much bigger and brighter. We were thinking maybe somehow it was a reflection of the space station, but still not sure if that really makes sense. Some say they might have been chinese lanterns but they were too bright and large from such a far distance away and seemed to be spaced perfectly apart.
