Calgary, Alberta - Red Objects

Date: April 04, 2004
Time: Between 9:00 -11:00 p.m.

Number of witnesses: 1

Number of objects: 3
Shape of objects: red dots

Full Description of event/sighting: I was in my hot-tub enjoying the night sky looking at planets and stars and such when I noticed a faint red dot flying away from me going west. At first I thought it was a plane but the dot's red color didn't seem to flash, it retained it's colour perfectly as it flew. It was when it started going back and forth as it flew west that i knew it wasn't a plane or helicopter. It was fairly low on the horizon so it was far yet it sped back and forth FAST. The speed and manuverability of it stunned me. Then when I knew this thing wasn't explainable, another two red dots flying in formation quickly joined up with the first and they all sank below my line of sight because trees were in the way. I hopped out of the tub and ran to where I could see, but they were too far. All of this happened in around 6 seconds...these little dots were moving way too fast for any vehicle I know of. I would be interested to hear if anyone else might have seen this.

Additional Information Below:


I hope I can answer most of your questions. First of all it's side to side movement was as it traveled west. The altitude is a bit of a tough question for me as I'm not good at guessing distance and height, but I know it was in the thousands of feet at least, as it was already low on the horizon when I first spotted the first object. If I had to guess I would say 10,000 - 25,000 feet maybe more! There was no sounds I could hear and absolutely no trailing, con trails, or anything being left behind in the air.

There are a couple of things I might point out that would dissuade any readers from believing this. Firstly there were two other people with me in the hot tub, but they weren't able to spot them in time as it happened quite fast. Secondly we had been drinking some alcohol that evening although I was, and am positive of what I saw.

The only other thing I can say about it is that they looked almost like a cgi special effect. They looked like someone with a laser pointer was carefully guiding them down the sky and back and forth. The other two joining them seemed to be in formation traveling at the same speed beside each other and followed the first object until they were together, and by that time they couldn't be seen very well, and then not at all. The red never flickered, never went out, it was constant except for that it was fading into the distance/city light haze on the horizon. I'll talk to some of my neighbors and ask them if they saw anything strange and let you know.

I checked all of my local news websites, airport website, even the local newspaper site and found nothing about any sightings in the area. It would be enough to doubt what you saw, but I know what I saw and had to let somebody else know.

Thanks for your interest and respect, and I hope that I can someday explain exactly what those red dots were one day!

Thank you to the witness for the report.
