UFO Encounters - CFB Gagetown NB / Additional Sightings

MUFON CMS - submitted 4/27/2011 - near Gagetown, New Brunswick, Canada - 6/1/1992 - unedited: I was in the US Army Reserves in the 1990's. One night, around June 1, 1992, while on my annual training exercise, I was in the woods, many miles from the nearest town, but amongst thousands of US & Canadian Army Reservists on a base called Gagetown, New Brunswick, Canada. I was dropped off a mile or two from camp, to guard an ammunition dump in a clearing of about 100 yards by 150-200 yards, surrounded by tall trees. The moon was full and the sky was clear.

At 11:20pm, I had the chilling sensation someone had snuck up on me and was standing next to me, looking at me. It sent a slight chill through me. I looked up to the right and there, about 100-or-so yards past the treeline, an enormous craft arose in the vicinity of a small lake/pond. I could see it plain as day and knew immediately it was an alien space craft.

It rose like a helicopter and flew slowly, like a helicopter, yet it was silent and lacked distinctive characteristics of both a helicopter and airplane, like a tailfin, wings, propellers, or safety lights.

In the bright moonlight, I could clearly see the entire craft, which was longer than a 747 or C-130, possibly oval or round, and tapered towards the tail. There were three sets of lights in a 120 degree arc around the front of the craft, which appeared to be windows, but may have been headlights.

I was paralyzed with fright and tried not to move, lest be seen. I slowly turned my head to watch the craft pass by. I watched it until it had gradually disappeared over the treeline.

After it had passed, I could hear the faint static-like sound of a jet-type engine, however the craft moved far too slowly to be a jet and the sound was barely audible, unlike a jet. There were no runways, where it took off - it had to come out of the lake or another clearing past the trees. Having seen many helicopters throughout my training, and ridden in them, I can say without equivocation this was no helicopter. With the bright moonlight, there is no doubt in my mind this was neither a commercial nor military craft known to the public, even now, nearly 20 years later.

Another soldier was on post about 1/4 mile away at another ammo dump. We had agreed beforehand to pick up our field phones at 11:30 to make sure we were both awake. Our exact conversation went: me,"Hey, you there?" him, "Yeah" me, "Did you see that?" him, "Thank God you said that!" We had both seen the same thing, described the same thing to each other, and agreed we had both seen an alien space craft.

This incident was never reported to the military because our fellow Reservists thought it was a joke we had both concocted and we eventually dropped it. But to this day, I shudder when I think of it.

I did report this on another website and was shocked to see the year after I posted it, a Canadian soldier posted an eerily similar account on the same night.

Further sightings in this area:

Oromocto, NB Triangle UFO

I wanted to share this amazing craft I seen in Oromocto, New Brunswick in the late 1990's Aug or Sept. I know the sketch is elementary but it is the best I could do with paint.

The craft was enormous in size like looking at a house hovering in the air. The color of the craft was a dark Grey metallic with smooth edges no sharp edges like my sketch. It had no sound. The triangular craft had windows all around like a normal Air craft but there was no living beings visible. It appeared to be scanning the area without lasers or fancy flash lighting. This was in the early part of the evening still day light after supper.

I ran in the house to get my companion to see this beautiful sight but he was hypnotized to the TV. I tried in vain but my companion would not budge like in a trance. I ran back outside and the craft was still there in the field hovering. I had a sense of calm while I watched it until it zipped off in a split second.

I then felt lonely as if my family just left after a holiday visit. I wanted it to come back.

I then spotted hovering above the Oromocto Lake at the boat docks. I jumped into my car to drive over to see it and before I arrived it zipped off again. This was the last time I seen it.

Oromocto seemed to be quiet while this was happening. I don't know if the town was asleep or having supper.

This is my story of UFOs and it has made me a believer. - UFOBC

Witness' sketch


Near Gagetown July 27th 2006

"We were driving north from Moncton to Fredericton. Just before getting to Gagetown I noticed something shining to my right, up in the air. It was approximately a couple thousand feet from us flying along the trans Canada highway. I said "what's that?" and two of my companions looked up, the front passenger saw it then it just zoomed at incredible speed and stopped around 20 miles away, we could still see very well then the third passenger see it. The characteristics that were most interesting is it was round (looked like an aspirin pill), shined like chrome and moved at incredible speed. I've seen jets move before and this was no jet, it would be going like Mach 7. When it was close by, if you calculate by distance at 2000 ft from us, it must have been like 200 ft in diameter.

As we watched it from a distance and the shine was still very intense (seemed just like the sun reflecting from the surface of this craft) it just moved again and we just lost it, it was way too fast to follow with our eyes. We just looked at each other and no other comment was made, this was no doubt a very odd experience." - PSICAN

Sitting in our kitchen talking at approx 2200hrs, my wife commented that she was looking at what she thought was a helecoptor over our house with what she thought was a spotlight (she could see it from her kitchen chair through our deck screen door. My brother stood up and had a look and commented that he thought it was weird that it made no noise. I have military experience with helecopters, para flairs and artillery flairs so I got up and stepped out on the deck to have a look (the rest were still in the house. At first I thought I was looking at a bright orange flair but then I noticed it was moving over our neighbourhood from West to East. We have a large military base and they fire artillery flairs to our south but their normally white and we can see them fall (not fly).

The object was semi-bright star shaped. It made no noise at all and definately wasn't a flair or aircraft (no red/green or white flashing lights). It flew towards CFB Gagetown and then stopped in the air. I yelled at my brother to come out and look and we watched it hover in the vicinity of the base for about 2 minutes and then it slowly started to fly again in a north east direction. We watched it fly out of sight and it never changed shape or added color (bright orange). When I checked my watch it was 2207hrs. My wife asked if it could be a meteor but i said no because it moved, then hovered, then moved again. It's speed wasn't fast but it was consistent (under mach 1). It seemed to waver left to right slightly and it made no noise at all. We have Bell 412 Choppers here flying all the time, some Sea Kings and EH 101s and you can hear them. This made no sound at all. - UFO Clearinghouse

May 4th 2007 : Oromocto, New Brunswick

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Over Oromocto New Brunswick Canada
Date: May 4, 2007 at 1:05 am
Approach Direction: east to west
Departure Direction: east to west
Witness Direction: north
Description: Friday May 4, 2007

At about 1:05am I went out to the patio to have a cigarette. I live in Beaver Dam which is just outside Fredericton, NB. I was looking in the general direction of Oromocto from there. Just above the tree line I saw what at first glance I thought was just another plane. The longer I looked at it the more I realized that it was not a plane. The colored flashing of the lights were completely random. They had no pattern to them like a normal plane. The next thing I noticed was that it was barely moving. During the 10 minutes that it was visable it only moved slightly from my right to left. Then disappeared.

I called CFB Gagetown in the morning to see if they were doing any exercises or could explain the lights and they said there were no exercises and they had no planes or helicopters out.

Color/Shape: lights appeared to be blue red and white

Height & Speed: I would say it was 10 km in the distance so it is hard to gage. - UFOinfo


Boiestown area circled. CFB Gagetown and Oromocto areas squared

I am a young man from Boiestown, New Brunswick, Canada and have a remarkable story to tell and a newspaper article to present, starting with the story. It happened March 26th at night, the night after people were talking about a star outside that would flash three or four colors and appeared to be spinning, but I never heard of it until Saturday. "Its' still out there", a friend said as he pointed it out to me. It's appearance was very strange and after staring at it for a while I noticed it move a little. I pointed it out to my friend and he noticed it. Inside the house was about ten more people so we showed them. It hardly moved but you could still tell it was moving. We decided to travel towards the object into the woods. There isnt many houses around this one, it is a pretty secluded area. Anyway, we walked out and began noticing little star like objects moving all around here and there. Really strange movements. Zooming back and forth and doing circles. Looking towards the object we were previously looking at minutes before it moved all the way to near the horizon. Suddenly another appeared over the horizon about 90 degrees from the first. Then another. Not only was there these weird colorful moving orbs, but the objects that looked like stars would be still, then suddenly shoot at rediculous speeds for a distance and then stop again or do some strange maneuver. We stared all night and sunrise was nearing. One light came direcly above us and seemed to be lowering because the light was getting brighter. We then noticed two more dimmer lights on each side of it forming a triangle. Sunrise was starting to come and the stars were disapearing. All that was left in the sky was three ufos including the one directly above us. One by one they became hard to see and disapeared, the last one seen was the one atop us. We looked around in the daylight for hours in the middle of some field a ways away from houses. By now some had left and there was only five of us left there. We would notice a flash going but it would only last for a second. I looked up in the sky and noticed a dark cloud above us. The funny thing was this cloud was really small and never even covered the small field and the sky was blue all around it. It was the strangest thing we have ever seen. It was really dark and grayish right up top of us but was really blue all around us. Anyway, I got sick of looking for the flashes and left. I didnt tell anyone what I had seen for fear of being considered nuts. Later that day, about 3:00 I went back to the field. My friends were still there and with a story to tell. They told me to take a look now.. That same dark cloud got even darker and the sky around just as blue. (im really sure it wasnt a cloud but its the closest I can compare it to.) I looked and saw about four flashes in five seconds. This time you could follow them with your eye but when they went near the dark cloud, which is where they were coming from or going to, they would disappear or cloak or somthing. At certain points you couls literally see hundreds of these things. Anyway, two of my friends standing there said that when it was just them two, the cloud came right over top of their head. They said it started to pull them up and they took off running towards the house. Back at the house they laughed their asses off at them running and sreaming a cloud was after them and a ufo was trying to abduct them. Personally, I couldnt really believe them either fully because I wasnt there and it seemed so far fetched (except the fact I witnessed the cloud follow us when we walked somewhere). Anyway, back to the five of us standing there watching the sky and all the flashes. There was definately more activity now than the previous night. I would guess there was at least 200 of these things around. Suddenly I looked over and spotted five flying saucers and pointed them out. They were there, just as plain as day and they definately werent anything that most people have ever seen. Their movements were so fluid and precise, it was amazing. They started in a circular motion, then as a sixth one joined them, their motion turned into an up down motion (when one was up, the two beside it were down). Later another saucer, alone this time, crossed the sky. When we went back to the house, the two guys who said they almost were abducted faces' were bright orange. We thought it might have been sun burnt but it went away in two hours. That night we took more peple back there to prove it, and sure enough they started coming from all around, about ten of them. After they come so close they would disapear, probably the cloud was still there but it wasnt really visable at night. After we went back to the house my two friend's faces were bright orange again. Also they were saying their colors in their eyes were screwed up.

I believe we have caught some attention by having a large group staring and pointing in the sky all night long. I honestly never believed in aliens or anything of that matter until now. I would have no reason to post this message for any other sort of reason than to see if anyone knows anything about this.

Here is the odd part to the story. In New Brunswick's newspaper "The Daily Gleaner" for Tuesday, March 29th, second page it tells the story of a guy who caught UFOs on video tape in a place about an hour away from Boiestown the day before the rainbow star was first spotted. Its appearance was the same of the rainbow star that we seen and it had a picture in the paper. It turns out, many others in NB had seen these sightings. http://www.canadaeast.com/

Here is the story exactly as it is write, quote:

Mystery UFO over Lincoln on videotape

The mysterious fireball that lit up the New Brunswick sky last Wednsday was videotaped by Lincoln resident Yancy Munford.

"We've got it on tape and what a sight" he said Monday. "It is a complete ball.

"When you zoom in and zoom away you can see the fire. You can see the trail and the smoke behind it."

Munford and his fiance Veronica were driving home in Lincoln Wednsday evening around 8:30 p.m. when they saw somthing in the sky. He keeps his video camera in his van and he parked near the Ooromocto overpass and they taped what looked like a fireball for at least five minutes.

"This thing hovered for minutes and minutes," said Munford. "We sat there and filmed it."

The fireball was also in Moncton and Digby, N.S. (Nova Scotia) and scientists have specualted that it could be a meteor or peice of space junk burning up on re-entry.

"At first we thought it had to be a comet," said Munford.

Now he wonders if it is a new kind of flare being tested by the military. Flares are often seen floating over CFB Gagetown at night. But he said normal flares burn on the way up. But this object just appeared in the sky.

"I have never seen a flare like that," he said.

In the videotape, which he brought to the Daily Gleaner Monday evening, the object appears to be round and rotating and covering with red and orange fire. There is a definite texture to the object visable on the video.

Munford said he could not see any peices coming off it.

He also said there was more than just one of the objects in the sky.

"There were three of them," he said.

Munford said if anyone from the university of New Brunswick's astronomy department wanted to see his video they were welcome to do so.

Munford was not the only person who saw the fireball Wednsday evening.

Claude and Dianne Gallant of Oromocto also spotted the mysterious object as they were driving through Lincoln on the way home from Fredericton.

"we were driving and watching it," said Dianne Gallant. "I said it must be a plane with a big light because it was moving really slow."

At first it was about the size of an orange street light and then they too thought it might be a flare from CFB Gagetown. But she said her husband used to be in the military and he did not think it was a flare.

Eventually it got even bigger. She said it was the size of a full moon and it was obviously round and rotating and on fire.

"I said boy, it is pretty big," she said. "It wasn't moving as fast as we were because we were getting closer to it."

Claude Gallant said he has seen meteors before and this fireball was not streaking across the sky.

"It was kind of bizarre," he said. "To me it kind of looked like it was almost stationary."

So what was it?

"To tell you the truth I have no idea," he said. "I know it wasn't a plane."

"It was a really amazing sight."

The Gallants bumped into Yancy Munford when they stopped for coffee at the Tim Hortons in Oromocto where he was showing people his newly-shot videotape of the fireball.

Claude Gallant said he got a chance to look at the tape.

"When he zoomed in on it, it looked really strange," he said. "It looked like a round ball that was turning and on fire."

Dianne Gallant said it looked like a miniature sun.

"You could actually see fire around this round thing and it was turning," she said. "It was darker in spots." Endquote.

This described to me the near exact same thing we seen at first, just much larger because he was closer. It was also the same in describing how more began appearing. Would anyone have any explanations for these things?


Photo: UFO / Alien Gray Caught On Camera In New Brunswick, Canada

From Chris Holly on Tuesday, March 10, 2009:

We were recently contacted by a very interesting man who wanted us to look at a photo he took on his property located deep in the Canadian wilderness.

The man was on his usual inspection of his property when he came across this huge light mass hovering over the trees lining one of his fields. He told us it was a massive extremely bright light that lit up his entire field. Along the right side of the light stood what looked like a rectangle structure of some type that seemed to be hovering next to this huge light.

The man thought this was the strangest thing he had ever seen and luckily had his camera with him and took a picture of the lights and his field. The object was so strange looking the man became extremely fearful and immediately left the area after taking the photo.

This event has upset this man since the day it happened. He decided to send it to Ed Fleming of F.T.T.O.U.F.O to see if Ed could help him identify what this light and structure next to it could have been. Ed examined the photo with great care and noticed what appears to be a gray looking creature peeking from behind a tree towards the man while he stood next to his truck to take his photo. The man never noticed this creature at the time.

Ed also agreed with the man that it does appear to be two objects one being the massive light source and the other some type of light structure, it also appears the light structure not only has form but some type of base supporting it.

Ed analyzed the photo to the best of his ability and could not find any obvious attempt the photo had been tampered with. Ed also thought the source seemed to be a very cool energy source – not a hot energy source.

More disturbing is that the creature behind the tree seems to have some type or object or weapon to the right of him either in his hand or standing next to him .This object is also lit and aiming at the man who was taking his picture at the time. You can see that this object next to the creature seems to be casting a light on the tree behind it.

This ordeal has been extremely upsetting for this man and he would only release the photo to us with the promise we would not identify who he is or where his land is located. We always first and foremost protect those who come to us with information and have agreed to show his unique photo without disrupting his privacy.
