|Orange UFO flying low through south Winnipeg
I witnessed something really weird in the St.Norbert area of Winnipeg last night.
I was driving home ( no alcohol) and saw a bright orange oval shaped light travelling very low, approx. 500-600 feet and only going about 25 mph or so . First thing I thought was this is a plane , it`s got to be a plane , but after I approached a stop sign , I got out of my vehicle and got a good look at it & it was oval shaped and with a bright orange glow lit from within . It was also WAY too low and going really slow about 25 mph. Now , i`m not delusional by any means , I know what I saw, as a matter 0of fact I ended up following it THROUGH st.norbert until it slowed right down and STOPPED . I got out of my vehicle and shut the engine off, & this thing was absolutely silent ! I watched it for about 15 seconds and it started flying away at a faster pace.
I followed it up to near pembina hwy & the intersection of hwy # 75 and lost it from sight . I have to tell you , i`m an amatuer astronomer , and an aviation buff and i`ve never seen anything like this at all. I noted the time when this happened, it was 10:54pm on the clock in my vehicle. The whole event lasted approx. 3 1/2 -4 minutes total from the time I acquired it till it flew out of sight .
The hair on the back of my neck was/ is standing on end , this just wasn`t right. The way it was moving around sort of skipping really got to me. It wasn`t flying in a straight path ( almost like it was wandering around, quite bizzare) This was not an R/C aircraft or anything else I can think of . ( no noise at all & too big) I just had to tell someone , it was a really nice night out, so someone else had to see it , it`s just not the kind of thing you miss.
I know it was friday the 13th and everything , but this is not a joke in any way, shape or form . I wish I had a camera with me , I can tell you that I will be keeping one in my vehicle for good after what happened tonight.
It`s important that someone else know what happened out here.
I`m not sure if the Airport in WPG would have picked anything up on radar or not , as it was flying really low , again estimate about 5-600 feet.
This was just stunning , I could barely keep my vehicle on the road as I drove following it through the area . I don`t think i`ll ever witness something like that again ...
