Manitoba UFO sightings date back to 1792

A new report suggests that there have been over 2,000 UFO sightings in Manitoba in the last 200 years.
The report, which has been compiled from Canadian and US government records, suggests that people have been seeing strange things in the skies over North America for several centuries.

"It's not a phenomenon that's a product of television and movies that are going on right now," said researcher Chris Rutkowski. "These things go back quite a number of years. People have been fascinated with things in the sky and wondering, 'Are we alone in the universe?'"

The earliest documented Manitoba sighting dates back to 1792 when two explorers reported witnessing a strange object cascading from the sky which "struck the river ice, with a sound like a mass of jelly, was dashed into innumerable luminous pieces and instantly expired."

Another report, this time from 1967, detailed how Stefan Michalak had observed two disc-shaped objects landing on a flat rock near Falcon Lake. When he approached he heard what he thought were human voices and was instantly hit by an explosion of hot gas which set his clothes on fire.

In 1989 a family had been visiting the Fort Whyte Nature Center when they encountered a white boomerang-shaped object hanging in the sky over Winnipeg. They later recalled how they had watched the craft slowly rotate in the air and noted that it had a peculiar bulge on its underside.

One of the most recent sightings was in 2012 when two witnesses, again in Winnipeg, saw a disc-shaped object with red lights all around its perimeter. As they watched it the craft suddenly swooped towards their vehicle before turning and zooming off in to the distance.

"That doesn't mean that aliens are invading Canada in any way, but it simply means there are unusual reports of things in the sky," said Rutkowski.

"It certainly says that we probably are not alone in the universe and that there probably are some sort of alien civilizations out there somewhere but there is no proof of that."

But, proof is what we need! And proof is something we are never going to get.

And proof is something we are never going to get. Proof is a mathematical concept, in natural sciences we really only have evidence. Overwhelming evidence for many things, but evidence nonetheless. Cheers, Badeskov
