|Me,My wife and 10 yr old son were traveling south on highway #7 about 8 klm from Winnipeg. about 18:45 pm. <Sky was clear sunny day good visibility strong winds> I saw this object heading north west very low to the ground. I was watching it and couldn't make out what it was.As it approached the highway it turned and headed north. It was flying about 80-100 feet above the highway between the two lanes.It was passing the on coming traffic so i estimated the speed to be around 140-150 klm hr. As it got close to the cars on the road it would flip on its side as it went passed them almost like it was looking at them. It then approached our truck.We were driving right at it when it flew right over top of the truck. I lost site of it as i was the driver and couldn't turn around safely to watch it. My wife then told me the <what ever it was> turned to the west and was climbing upwards at a high rate of speed. she watched it until it was gone. From the time it passed over us until it was no long visible only took secounds.The object was around 4-5 ft in diameter had a silver center and darker colored chrome balls or like disks around the middle of it.There was lots of traffic on the highway at this time and I'm sure others must have seen this thing.I did report this to the Winnipeg airport airtraffic control center and they gave me the name and number of a person to contact.I did and they said they would check it out.This was the most bizzar thing i have ever seen in my life had i been alone i wouldn't have told anyone because they wouldn't have believed it. thanks for your time.
