|Canadian Forces Reservist UFO sighting in Gagetown, NB
In June of 1992, while on training excersise in Gagetown with the Canadian Armed Forces Reserves, I was doing an all night duty called "fire picket" (essentially, watching over the weapons, keeping an eye out) when I noticed a light coming over a low set of hills to the east of my location in an area nicknamed the "black woods/forest"..
At first, I didn't pay it much attention since aircraft are a common sight around a military base, but then it started doing some wierd flying maneuvers like skipping forward quickly,stop, coast backwards, then up in an arc, then straight down, stop, then the object began "dancing" like swaying to the left and right while going forward. Then it shot up in the air, slowly descended, then it went straight across the sky, it shot down in an arc behind the hills, then re-appeared even closer to me (about a quarter km), which freaked me out a little, and it was at this point that I realised it was a disk shaped object, with really bright lights on the bottom, the center appeared to be red-orange, but at times almost dark pink? In the night sky it appeared to be gray-purple color, but that could have been reflections since the sky was a similar color..the object moved across the sky behind me, made no noise at all, and I lost sight of it due to the trees behind me but I could still see the lights through the trees.
It was then I noticed how close it came to my position when I could see about 150 yards in the direction of the object the light flickering down illuminating the ground. I felt a strange "charge" in the air, like in a lightning storm, and my hair on my arms and neck were stood up..the next thing I knew I couldn't see it anymore, and I turned to my right to see if the object was going to emerge on the other side of the trees, and it didn't emerge where and when I thought it would, but when I glanced over my right shoulder there it was hovering in the air about 300 yards or more away and it took off like a shooting star (left a light trail or blur) upwards and I got such a fright I had to sit down and have a cigarette. I had this feeling it was watching me for that second, but I am not sure if it was the same object or another object that I never noticed since my attention was on the first object.
This was my 3rd strange sighting at Gagetown while I was a Reservist but the only time I actually saw anything up close.
