[1991] [1993]

Unidentified in Saskatchewan - 1992

There was a lot of UFO activity in Saskatoon, and Saskatchewan, in 1992. And a lot of newspaper articles in the Saskatoon StarPhoenix. Why 1992? I don't know.

Please see the:

March 1 at Whitewood, SK
Five hour encounter with beings, normal height estimated to be 5 feet 6 inches. Telepathic communication. Witness reported part of the encounter to the National UFO Reporting Center.
...I was parked at the truck stop in .... over night. I went to sleep around 2130 and shortly after found myself aboard a craft that was white with a blue stripe. There were windows on both sides but I dont remember seeing any passengers from the outside. I was within 20 feet of it. It was shaped like a passenger jet complete with a rudder from the side but had no wings when viewed from the ground underneath the craft. This was the craft I went inside. The other craft was sguare, like a platform. There were many beings inside some looked very human but others were quite pale. They were normal height, all under 5-6 i would think. We all communicated telepethically. They were friendly. I knew this not just because they appeared friendly but i could communicate openly with their minds or at least the mind of the one I assume was the leader. He was the one who communicated with me anyway. I never did ! remember everything that happened that night. I do recollect that part of my memory was erased. I was made aware of this. As well it was I believe 19 years ago and my memory isnt that great. I do remember that i had the propulsion system explained to me in some detail. I was always interested in mechanical things and this craft was powered by some form of hydrogen. in the fog they could run forever without fuel by taking in water from the air. It was a very foggy spring that year. They showed me 2 fuel tanks that appeared to be white poly. They were around 2 and a half gallons. They told me how far they could go on one of these tanks of water, it was very impressive but i dont remember the distance. They showed off a little bit with the blue and white vessel. The maneuvers it did were quite impressive. I was standing beside my truck while they did figure eights over my head. ...

"Sometime after 7:30 p.m. on Good Friday, 1992, Gloria saw what at first appeared to be a bright light over railway tracks in the Confederation area. The light moved, and she realized that she had been looking at the bottom of an inverted, shallow bowl-shaped object of dull, metallic colour, about 10 to 20 feet in diameter ... [original document has a sketch]. It hovered silently above a power pole, and then zipped away. The next day, Gloria noticed several helicopters in the same area..."

May 20th
Report of a sasquatch sighting on the webpage, Saskatchewan Sasquatch Sightings. "I just caught the biggest northern pike of my life, when I turn around in the boat in total fear. I caught a glimps of the animal on the bank on the river disappearing into the forest. It was approx. 8 foot tall hair all over. I was approx 100 yards from the animal. It took me awhile to calm down and then went back to camp. I mention to the owner that I saw something strange in the forest and he tried to convience me that it was a bear walking upright with a cub through the forest. I did not say I saw bigfoot or a bear just something strange.".

July 18 Star-Phoenix Local A7. Now this report is in the area south of Edmonton, but I am including it here because I think that the if it was happening near Edmonton, it was also happening in Saskatchewan. Only our reports never hit the paper. The RCMP were brought in to investigate.

...

  Since September, seven heifers each worth about $600 have been killed, and six have had their sex organs removed. Often, their blood has been drained.

  The surgical neatness of the wounds and the tidy site around the cadavers has sparked speculation about how the killings occurred...

20 August 1992 on either "Canada A.M." or CBC television, they interviewed a man that videotaped clouds. Examining it frame by frame - UFOs would show up on frames. They were so fast that showing the video at normal speed nothing would show up


1992 August 26, Saskatoon Star Phoenix on the front page Could mystery lights be UFOs? (pdf).

"...They were heading south on Highway 219 and they had just passed the White Cap Reserve at about 9 p.m. when they saw about 10 lights in a diagonal line.

Then the lights went out. One by one they began reappearing, this time in a circle formation. They disappeared and reappeared again in an "abstract" formation...

What was "quite strange" about these lights was that they had little streams of smoke, similar to the smoke made by fireworks. Except these ones were going upwards...

The whole episode lasted about five to 10 minutes.

The lights were yellowish - white and were brighter than stars, and "way brighter than yard lights"...
