|Diamond shaped object witnessed by many.
A lady called me from Airdrie today asking if anyone had contacted me over a sighting which took place on September 15, 2003 at 1:15 a.m. While the witness was on her way to Calgary and 30 kilometers north of Airdrie she saw an object at a low level and then it shot up into the sky very quickly, and came to a complete stop.
At this point in our conversation she told me she had pulled her car over to the side of the road, and so did approx: 10 other vehicles to watch this amazing event. On the drivers side of the road there were two cars and two freight liners which had pulled over. Also in her rear view mirror she could see two other cars doing the same.... and a couple more which were heading north bound.
The witness was traveling on Highway #2 going south.
When the lady first saw the object her thoughts were that it was an aircraft departing from an airport, but soon realized that in this area there was no airport. Actually the lady said the sighting would have been witnessed exactly 15 kilometers from the small town of Crossfield. and the object would have been traveling to the southwest. She thought it was odd that the object was departing at such a strange degree, keeping in mind that her first thoughts were of an aircraft. The object, when traveling up into the sky, made a sharp climb and once it arrived at a high altitude it came to a complete stop. It then shot across the sky towards the northwest and stopped again. At this point the lady pulled over to watch it. She said there was only one light on the craft which she described as being very lustrous as if one would look at a diamond. Also extremely bright ! As she and many others watched, the object moved side to side keeping at the same altitude and then it started to flash. The lady said if she had to put a shape to the object, it would have looked like a diamond.
She rolled down her window as she watched. She wanted to hear if there was any sound coming from it. The lady also had turned her vehicle off, but no sound could be heard. The witness went on to say, there was not a sound in the area at all. Not knowing the exact height the object was sitting at, she said the size of it would have been larger than a tennis ball. She was travelling alone and became quite frightened so decided to continue on her way. She left the area.
The witness did contact the RCMP to see if others had made a report about the sighting but no one had come forwarded.
I have already contacted the Airdrie Echo newspaper in search of any information they might have received. I also will be making some calls and requesting information and help in trying to find out what this object may have been.
