Duration:approx:10 seconds
Object made a very quick and very sharp U-turn.

It was 9:30 pm Sunday July 6th at the Hecla Provincial Park (120 miles north of Winnipeg) My wife and I saw an aircraft travelling east. It was very high in the sky as I could not identify aircraft wings and could barely discern the faint sound of jet engines. The aircraft caught my eye because it was shining brightly (probably due to the reflection of sunlight at sunset) and I found it odd that there was no vapor trail from the jet engines. The speed of the aircraft was constant (not unusually fast or slow).

The very strange aspect of this sighting was that the aircraft did a very quick and very sharp U-turn. It took less than two seconds for the aircraft to change directions and begin flying on the same path it had been travelling.

I work in aviation and know that vapor trails are not always visible due to air temperatures but jet aircraft cannot change directions that quickly.

I hope someone else saw this as well.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
