Characteristics: The object emitted other objects, The object emitted beams
|((NUFORC Note: We do not know what the witnesses observed, although we doubt whether the objects were genuine UFO's. Had they been UFO's in the night sky above Saskatoon, we suspect that our Hotline telephone would have been ringing off the hook, and the objects would have been reported by astronomers of all stripes. We believe the most likely possibility is that the witnesses were looking at twinkling stars. The moving red light might have been a solid red light on an aircraft. However, all of this is conjecture, since we did not witness the lights. The dates of the sightings are approximate. PD))
streams of light and triangular lights seen over Saskatoon, SK.
NOTE - Date and time are approximate... This report is from 1994.
I was caretaking in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. My wife-to-be (at the time) and myself would often open our apartment suite window and gaze out at the sky. We had often noticed in the sky 3 red lights at various locations in the sky that always seemed to remain fixed in the sky (at about 25-30 degrees above the horizon, and certain fixed locations unknown degrees from north and south. they always seemed to be in the same place. for example one was always just a bit east of the peak of a house down the street.) even though the other stars in the sky would move.
We had jokingly called the red lights our "friends" and would often jokingly say, "oh look, our friends are here".
One night, we were standing in the window watching south. one of the red lights was there, almost due south and always at the same height in the sky... We had suggested to ourselves that the light was nothing more than the light of a plane heading either to Regina (The Capitol city of Saskatchewan) or coming in from it. But, after over 45 minutes, the light had not changed position in the sky at all, and the flight from Saskatton to Regina was only about 50 minutes. So that ruled that out... and we still couldn't figure out the peculiar red color of it.
About this time we noticed that the loight would "jiggle" slightly... just a short, small up and down motion. We thought to ourseleves, ok... we are imagining it and continued to watch and it would jigle again... we watched the other two red lights and noticed they were doing the same thing as well.
To make this easier to follow, I'll call the red lights "south" (the southernmost one we thought might possibly be an airplane), "east" (the red light to the east of us) and "north" for the one just to the north of us.
We became amazed when south jiggled yet again and then a stream of, well, for lackof a better term, northern lights style white light appeared to travel from south to east. A coupole minutes went by and a second stream went from east back to south after east jiggled.
We were amazed when we saw that... the light was in a straight line, and acted like an airplane contrail appearcing, making a longer line until it almost reached the other light and then slowly fading out after about 6-10 seconds... all to the south and east of us.
then the same thing happened with a stream of the same style light from east to north and back.
At this point, just to the south of the position of "east" there was a huge white flash (similar to the white flash from the fireworks that produce the huge "bang" minus the "bang")and then the same white color stream proceeded to appear from "East" but it created a clockwise spiral pattern that radiated out from the spot where the white flash had occured.
This continued to happen for another 20 minutes or so, with "east" being the center of the activity.
There were a total I recall of about 8 straight lines and 3 spirals.
After the "show" had finished we continued to watch "our friends" the red lights, and saw a small trianglar shaped light (imagine the ship from the old asteroids aracde game) leave "north" in a northerly direction, loop around in a counter-clockwise direction and head north again at a high speed (approximately 1 handspan / per second with the hand held outstretched above my head). My wife claimed to also see the same thing happen to "east" as well.
We have absolutely no idea of what it was we saw. It was one of the most spectacular things I have ever seen in my life though.
We would be willing to submit drawings of what we saw via email if requested.
