Duration: 30-45 sec
|While caving a diamond shaped object flew past our team with no sound or wind.
I and 3 friends were caving in Albertas rocky mountains about 70KM north/north east of Banff. We were in the cave for about 1.5-2 hrs when we heard some sounds coming from one of the caverns. The sound was like that of a pick against the rocks about every 20-30 sec. We went to investigate thinking it might be other cavers, or unlicenced miners. We had to climb down a shaft that was about 30' in diameter and on a 60% slope for about 200m. As we came closer the noise had stopped. We went on closer to where we thought it was coming from and at that moment we saw a craft or object fly by us at a high rate of speed. (25-30 KM/hr). It had to be hovering because the ground was to rough and steep for anything to be moving along the ground. No light or sound came from it and we also noticed when it passed us that it didn't even create any wind. Our lights are bright for caving and it didn't reflect the light as any kind of object I have seen before. It was sort of diamond shaped but also resembled a tear drop too with the front as more pointy. It came within 3-4' of me as it passed without a sound or wind. It was about 12-14' across at widest point and aprox 25-30' long and it looked solid with no windows or visible openings.
((NUFORC Note: We will forward the case to Canadian investigators for a follow-up investigation, or interview. PD))
