Full Description of event/sighting: My girl friend and I were driving down Pembina Avenue in Winnipeg. Pembina is a busy street and there was lots of traffic. We looked ahead and there was a really bright orange pink light up in the sky a fair distance away. It was really bright, brighter than all the street lights. So we just drove along looking at it for about 3 minutes or so and it was moving at a moderate speed. Eventually it disappeared below the field of our vision. So I pulled off the main street and drove to that area to see if we could get another view. We got out of the car and in front of us was a sort of big field where there's large electrical lines. The fireball was gone but looking up I saw a big smoke trail! And the smoke trail was jagged. Like it went straight and then took abrupt turns like in an abstract zig zagging way. And it just started and stopped without fading in or out. And there was no doubt a smoke trail left by the thing that we saw. It wasn't just clouds or something.

Definitely it was not any kind of plane that I've seen because of the abruptness of the trail. The only thing that I might say it was some kind of flare. But I don't know enough about how flares move or how bright they are to either confirm or deny this.

The only other thing to mention is that as the ball was moving down over below the houses and my girlfriend said that she saw flashes and bolts of electricity as if the thing had exploded or something. But then when I asked her about that later she couldn't remember having said that.

I reported this because of reading another report at this site from Winnipeg in August of 2004 that was sort of similar.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
