Wow. I just logged on to Above Top Secret to learn more about the UFO phenomenon after reading David M. Jacobs' books eye-opening and disturbing
books about alien abduction, "Secret Life", and "The Threat".
The last thing I was expecting to find was a thread about Canadian sightings near where I grew up in Manitoba, Canada. I've always had an interest in
UFOs but have never seen one or had any paranormal experiences, but I do have one odd experience that happened a couple of years ago that might be
relevant this thread.
My family has a cabin at Clear Lake, Manitoba - near the border of Saskatchewan and Manitoba - and we've alway loved to stargaze out away from the
bright lights of Winnipeg where stars tend to be hard to see. One evening after dinner we went out for a walk and feeling kind of silly we all flopped
down onto our backs in the grass and gazed at the sky and stars while we idly continued our conversation.
It was me, my brother, his wife and my mother, and we were laying in the grass in the dark looking up at the stars around 11 pm, just relaxing and
enjoying a warm summer night at the lake, when I noticed what I thought was a satellite traveling across the starfield above us. I interrupted the
conversation and pointed out the point of light moving across the night sky at a regular rate of speed and everybody else agreed it was a satellite.
My brother is a smoker and he spends every evening on smoke breaks banished to the back-yard instead of smoking in the house around the kids, so
satellite-spotting is one of his specialties when he'd stuck outside at night, and he confirmed that what we were seeing was likely a man-made
So anyway, we're all watching this point of light travel across the sky above us just as any other satellite would, when it suddenly made a 90 degree
turn and started moving in a path completely perpendicular to it's original path across the sky. At first I was thinking "No way, that didn't just
happen, I must have had one too many beers", but I asked if anybody else saw the "satellite" suddenly change direction on a dime, and everybody
agreed that was exactly what happened. There was no doubt, all four of us had been watching it when it made it's unnatural course change and started
heading off in another direction.
It didn't get anymore dramatic than that - the point of light continued in it's new direction at a constant rate of speed until it was out of sight.
I've always kind of wanted to see a UFO and might have thought I was simply seeing things that evening if everybody else in my family hadn't seen it
Now everytime I go to the cabin at the lake I always make sure I have at least binoculars with me in case any more "satellites" decide to get a bit
