Files obtained from the National Archives of Canada:

The following account is from the actual transcripts of sightings filed with, first, the National Research Council, and finally, archived and microfilmed by the National Archives of Canada. The National Research Council maintained a file of unidentified aerial phenomena (UFOs) under a category titled: "Non-Meteoric Sightings". UFOs referred to below are "unidentified flying objects"... unidentified to the observer. They may be nothing more than misidentified natural objects, but read these accounts and try to imagine what kinds of natural objects could lead to the following reports.

BDN33 Brandon Det. reports the sightings of an illuminated object in the sky approx. 5 miles west of Kirkhams Bridge area in the RM of Daly, Man. The light was first noted by Reg. No.----, Cst.---- at approx. 11:10 pm, 20 June 75 while on patrol in a PC on the Grand Valley Road south of the Kirkhams Bridge area.

At approx. 11:30 pm Reg. No.---- Cst.---- and Reg. No.---- Cst.---- of Brandon Det. were in the Kirkhams Bridge area on patrol in another PC when they also sighted the same light.

The object appeared as a bright white light suspended approx 220 to 300 ft. off the ground. It was stationary and on several occasions was observed to become brighter.

Cst.---- attempted to close with it in the PC with negative results. He pursued the object to approx. 3 miles southeast of Hamiota, Man. where it disappeared at approx. 12:30 am, 21 June 75 and could not be located again.

When Cst.'s---- and ---- first saw the object they followed it on PTH 21 towards Hamiota where it disappeared. A red flash was observed in the white light just before it suddenly disappeared.

After it disappeared it was established that there was nothing in the area where it had been seen to indicate it could have been mistaken for a star.

At approx. 11:30 pm, 20 June 75, the Brandon Airport Tower was contacted and they confirmed there was no aircraft in the area then or since the object had been sighted.

It is the opinion of the writer this unknown object could be classified as a UFO and this is also the opinion of the other members involved.
