August 1998

St. Laurence Gulf, New Brunswick

Date August 1998
Time: 11:45 p.m.

Today, November 29, 2003 I received a telephone call from a gentleman who wanted to make a report on a sighting he had back on August 1998 at 11:45 p.m. He went on to explain what it was he and a friend witnessed. The two witnesses were visiting a close friend who lived just south of Bathurst, New Brunswick. The couple, eventually were sitting at the waters edge on the St. Laurence Gulf when they saw a brilliant blue light moving slowly across the sky. He tried to give me an example of what the blue light looked like, and said if you were to hold up a gem stone, blue in color and shone a extremely bright light through it, this is how this object's color would appear to look like. Even at one time he thought what they were looking at was the after burner of a jet aircraft. But soon ruled this out due to the upcoming maneuvers this thing would make.

The witnesses could not see any physical shape to the object, just this intense blue light. he reports that no sound was heard coming from the strange light in the sky. They said they observed the object for approx: 1 minute which would seem to rule out a meteor. He repeated that the object was rather high up, and close to some very high cloud. The color of the light bathed the clouds in a blue light. When they first spotted it, it was traveling in a straight line across the sky, then it came to a complete stop and hovered. It started to move again from a dead stop rather quickly and then made a quick turn. Not a sharp turn, but more on a curve and then shot up into the sky and disappeared. When they first observed the object it came from the south traveling to the north. The witness said he even called the Halifax airport to file a report, plus to ask if anyone else had reported the strange object they had just saw. The control tower folks thought the witness was on something, and they left it pretty much as is. The fellow felt what ever it was they saw had to have been very large in size. Also he noted he wasn't aware of anything that could travel that fast. It was so weird that the experience frightened his friend and she ran to the car.

Thank you to the witnesses for the report.
