Sighting of UFO Hovering Above Sturgeon Wasn’t Taken Seriously

• On September 30, 2018, around 11 p.m., Jim Bruce was on his deck in the town of Sturgeon in Prince Edward Island, Canada, just north of Nova Scotia, when he saw a craft in the sky with flashing lights. He thought it was a plane until it just stopped, then shot in a 90-degree angle right towards Bruce’s home and stopped once again. Then it moved eastward toward Nova Scotia. Then it flew in a circle and hovered. Then it “shot off and disappeared over the horizon…” said Bruce.
• Bruce learned that others had seen a similar UFO several weeks earlier. He wanted to know what it was he saw, so he began making calls. He called the Royal Canadian Air Force, Air Canada airline, NAV Canada (Canada’s civil air navigation system), and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. No one took him seriously.
• So, who does a Canadian phone when he’s seen a UFO? Since 1989, Ufology Research of Manitoba (UFORM) has been taking reported sightings in Canada and compiles them into an annual Canadian UFO Survey. According to UFORM manager, Chris Rutkowski, “Polls have shown about 10 per cent of all Canadians believe they’ve seen UFOs, which is a fairly significant number when you think about it.” “I want people to understand that UFOs can be studied in a scientific way. We can explain most UFO reports.” Rutkowski says between one and three per cent of cases can’t be explained.
Jim Bruce stepped out on his deck the last day of September around 11 p.m. just to check how cold it was. As he looked to the sky, he noted there was no moon and he could see the stars perfectly.
Then, something came from the west.
Bruce has seen a lot of satellites in the sky near his home in Sturgeon, but this object was not like any he’d seen before.
“Must be a plane,” he thought.
The object with flashing lights just stopped dead. Then, it shot in a 90-degree angle towards Bruce’s home and stopped once again.
“Then it continued again toward the east, stopped, dropped, sort of moving towards Nova Scotia.”
Next, it flew in a circle and hovered, Bruce said.
“It shot off and disappeared over the horizon faster than any satellite I had ever seen.”
The next day, Bruce was getting some paint at Stewart and Beck’s in Montague and couple of people were talking about what they had seen in the sky.
The same thing. In the same part of the sky, a few weeks ago.
Bruce wanted to know what it was he saw, so he began making calls.
He got some numbers for the Royal Canadian Air Force, hoping they could tell him something. No one took him seriously. He called Air Canada, who hung up. Then he called NAV Canada, who also hung up. Finally, the RCMP told him it wasn’t something they dealt with.
So, who do you phone when you think you’ve seen an unidentified flying object?
