RCMP Saw Three UFOs over Rockies
TURNER VALLEY, Alta. (CP). -- A blazing, white Unidentified Flying Object roaring like a jet aircraft, has been reported hovering near a farmhouse near Priddis, 10 miles west of Calgary, an RCMP officer says.
An officer of the RCMP Turner Valley detachment, said he went to the scene, Saturday, and saw three mysterious objects flit about above the Rocky Mountains.
The officer said in a statement, this week, that "the object is described as being 60 feet in diameter and 25 feet high, giving off a very white light as it hovered about 100 feet from the ground."
Constable Dave Grundy said the UFO was first reported at 2:30 a.m., Oct. 13, by a woman living on a farm near Priddis. The woman did not want her name released.
Constable Grundy said he went to the scene when the object was again reported last Saturday, at 2:50 a.m. - and this time, he saw it too.
"It was oblong with a crown and windows on the crown giving off a clear light. It was close enough, they (the woman and her children) could compare it in size to their house. Inside was a white, white light. It sounded like a jet engine without the whine. After about two minutes, it took off to the north, then west, very fast, they said."
The constable said that by the time he arrived, the object had flown off to the west, watched by the woman and her children through a telescope. Looking through the telescope, the officer said he saw "three objects jumping around all over the place, in the west, above the Rockies."
"They appeared to be diamond-shaped," the constable said. "That was quite an experience... I saw what I saw."
