Second UFO Sighting in Southern Alberta, Canada Causes Electrical Problems

Second sighting of UFOs

People in the Nanton area are looking up at the skies more this week after UFO sightings on March 16. Sam Martine, who lives three miles west of Nanton, says two bright lights appeared about 11 p.m. in the sky above their neighbour’s house about a quarter of a mile away. 

“The first light was about as big as a large yard light — that is what I thought it was at first — but very bright white,” says Martine, who was in her house when the lights first appeared.

The second light was higher in the air than the first, and the two lights sat in one spot for about four or five minutes before moving upward. That’s when Martine and her daughter Baylie went outside, and the lights came toward them, making no sound.

“Then you could see red light and blue light and could hear it,” says Martine. “It went over our house. The other light stayed still, then it started to move up — but not as high as the first light— and again went over our house.” As it passed over there was one wide blue light and the other side had a red light as it passed to the northwest. 

Martine tried to take photographs of the objects. “I could take pics of the sky but when I would aim at the lights flying, my camera would not work. Even my flash would make a weird noise,” said Martine. “Finally out the back of our place I finally got the camera to work,” but only got two photos. She said her camera would only work if she moved, but wouldn’t work if she was aiming directly at the lights.

“I knew something was really weird when my camera would not work. When I tried with the flash on it would make a buzzing sound,” Martine says. Martine, who takes many photos — including many action photos of rodeoing and trick riding — says that she has never had these problems and noises coming from her camera equipment before, and has been unable to recreate the problems since.

“Baylie tried on her phone but the screen went all green,” she says. Martine says that ordinarily she would have thought the objects were helicopters, but they made no noise when they were hovering in one position. “Thank goodness my kid saw it or I would think I had lost it,” Martine says.The following morning, Martine found that their cattle had run through the fence and were all standing on the northwest hill. All cattle were accounted for.The last time that there were reported UFO sightings in the Nanton area was in the late 1970s, when cattle mutilations were reported throughout the area.Peter Davenport, director for the National UFO Reporting Center in Washington state, says this account fits with many descriptions of UFOs that come through his center. 

Amazingly, the Martine account was not the only UFO sighting that night
Pat and Donald Comstock live about a mile northeast of Martine’s farm, as the crow flies.

On March 16, at about 9:30-10 p.m., Pat was in her kitchen knitting when a bright white light shone in the kitchen window, which faces directly south.
She looked out to see two white lights, one higher than the other, coming towards their house. She called Donald to come see, and they went out onto their deck to see it. The lights were moving slow enough that they had time to go outside, she says. They thought originally that it was a plane, maybe in trouble and about to crash.

But as the lights moved northwest over them, they could see red light on one side, and green on the other. The white light were at the front of the objects, she said.Donald said that because it was a full moon that night, there was a lot of light in the sky, and he could see the metal of the object as it passed by. He said it was a dull metallic colour.

The Comstocks also thought it could be STARS Air ambulance, but said it wasn’t making any noise as it passed, unlike the helicopter. The Comstocks, who don’t have internet, hadn’t heard about the Martine’s story before Friday, after they had mentioned their sightings.
After reading the Martine account, Pat said the disconcerting part about it was that if there were two distinct times for the objects to pass over, given the location of the two homes, that meant that there would have been at least two separate passes by the objects.

The National UFO Reporter Center is the organization of choice for most government agencies for UFO referrals and data collection, Davenport says. The center runs two shifts a day, seven days a week, and is flooded with reports of UFO sightings. The center’s website, ufocenter.com, has 96,000 reports on it, and the center has been in operation for about 40 years. Davenport has been working there for almost 20 years.

The 2013 Canadian UFO Survey, compiled annually by Ufology Research, found 1,180 sightings across the country, 129 of those in Alberta. “UFOs are the second most researched subject on the internet,” Davenport says. Davenport says that Martine’s description fits. Witnesses often have problems taking photos of the objects, and there seems to be electromagnetic interference nvolved. Davenport says that often the center is asked if there are sightings in certain locales, such as southern Alberta, but he says this is a restricted view.

“The problem with that is that we appear to be dealing with objects that can travel tens of thousands of miles per hour,” he says, and as a result, they would look more for sightings somewhere else in the world.
