Manitoba UFO Sightings... and a Movie

UFO reports continue to pile up. 2012 is on track to be another plateau year of several hundred cases again.

I received a memo today through Transport Canada regarding "3 sightings of lights" that were all "in vicinity of" Sioux Lookout, Ontario. The memo isn't clear, but apparently personnel on three different aircraft flying at about 36,000 ft. saw: 1) a light like a shooting star; 2) an odd light on the ground; and 3) a light above the aircraft. According to the memo, all three sightings took place at 1850 hrs local on October 8, 2012.

A week ago, I had been in Neepawa, Manitoba, for a writers' event in Margaret Laurence House, and casually glanced through a copy of the Neepawa Press, the local paper. In its version of a "Police Blotter," the "Cops Corner" noted very simply: "a driver reported a UFO sighting. Members were unable to confirm." The date on the newspaper was September 26, 2012, on page 7.

Then, I received a Facebook message from a friend who tipped me off to something that happened in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba on Saturday, September 29, 2012. The story was that 5 (five) police cars responded to a call from a resident who reported seeing a bright light high in the eastern sky. When I phoned the witness, he confirmed that several police showed up, and they watched the UFO with him. In their opinion, they told him it was nothing but "Saturn." Now, that would have been odd, since Saturn isn't up at 4:30 am when this was observed. But Jupiter was, exactly in the right spot. Furthermore, the witness said he saw it on consecutive nights in the same part of the sky, which pretty much nails it.

Finally, completing the quad of Manitoba news, I learned that a Hollywood-style movie has been made concerning the famous Falcon Lake case. Well, it had to happen, sooner or later. The movie was "inspired by" the Falcon Lake UFO case of 1967. It's titled Rulers of Darkness, and has already been filmed, and awaiting distribution. The producer asked me if Winnipeg would be a good site for the world premiere. I say yes.

It's a VERY fictionalized version of the noted UFO landing case, and is more of a SF/thriller/chiller than a re-enactment of the incident, as far as I can tell. From IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2258212

But hey, it's a movie about a UFO case in Manitoba.

Here's the link to the movie site: http://rulersofdarknessmovie.com/
