One of the best UFO sightings in the Maritimes
John Sheppard was camping near Kensington with his wife in June 2014, and believes he saw a UFO off the north shore of Prince Edward Island has the video to prove it.
He was about to turn in for the night 11:30pm when out of the corner of his eye he saw a light over the water.
After watching the diamond-shaped light dancing about 75 meters above the water, around a kilometre off shore, for several minutes, Sheppard grabbed his cell phone and started filming. He narrates as he watches what he calls a light show.
Although the footage itself isn’t breath-taking like you’d expect; things got interesting when Sheppard sent the video to the Mutual UFO Network of Canada. (MUFON is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to the study of UFOs).
MUFON assistant director for Canada Stu Bundy estimates there are about a thousand reports of possible UFO sightings in Canada each year, but many are actually the star Sirius or the international space station flying over.
But neither was the case with Sheppard’s sighting.
MUFON uses an open source computer program called Stellarium to see what could have caused the bright lights in the sky that night, including satellites, but Bundy said the investigator still couldn’t find an explanation.
MUFON’s drone expert didn’t think a drone was a likely explanation either, given there were 20 km/hr winds that night and a drone’s battery wouldn’t likely be able to last as long as the lights Sheppard saw in the sky.
The fact that there were two objects also convinced MUFON drones weren’t the cause.
1 of very few confirmed cases
After an extensive investigation, including a site visit, MUFON concluded what Sheppard saw was a UFO or, in the group’s terminology, an UAV — unidentified aerial vehicle.
“It’s very rare. Extremely rare,” said Bundy. “This is great. This is a really serious sighting, and we still refer to it as one of the best UFO sightings in the Maritimes.”
