E.T. Phone Piney, Manitoba? by Expat
As the legend of Bigfoot remains afoot in the Yukon, Manitoba residents are also seeing signs of the mysterious - UFOs to be exact.
Over the weekend residents of Piney, Manitoba had an encounter of the third kind when an object described as "shiny", "three times the size of a jetliner", and "pointed with no wings" silently flew overhead.
"It was silvery, tubular-shaped, with some odd protrusions on either side, and it flew overhead very silently," Ufology Research of Manitoba member Chris Rutkowski told Canada AM. His organization tracks UFO sightings in Canada.
The three observers watched for about 20 seconds as the object flew past them. They had a camera but were reportedly so amazed they forgot to take any pictures.
"They said it definitely was not an aircraft in their opinion, and they tend to see a lot of aircraft," Rutkowski said.
