UFO sightings soar in N.B.

SAINT JOHN, N.B. Star gazers near New Brunswick’s Acadian peninsula may want to take a second look at the sky the next time they’re outdoors.

Since mid-January, Fredericton UFO expert Stanton Friedman has received more than 15 accounts of strange sightings over the village of Inkerman, a community about 20 kilometres southwest of Shippagan.

"These certainly seem to be real. Definitely an unidentifiable flying object," Friedman said.

Most of the sightings were of an event in Inkerman at about 9:30 p.m. on Jan. 12, he said. The sightings were all within about 20 kilometres of each other.

Chris Rutkowski, a UFO researcher in Manitoba, passed on a report from the original witness of the Jan. 12 event to Friedman.

Friedman said a man witnessing the event got out of his car and watched the silent object, described as less than 30-metres long and shaped like a diamond without a tip. The witness said the object descended above a utility pole alongside a country road and took about five seconds to hover across to the other side.

It continued over to a house and then, right over it, the object made a rapid 90-degree turn before speeding out of sight.

In 2000, there were no reported sightings of UFOs in New Brunswick, but in the annual CIRVIS report Rutkowski is compiling for 2001, there were five sightings.
