A mother and daughter who live on a ranch just outside of Nanton are scratching their heads after a couple of unidentified flying objects flew over their southern Alberta home late last Sunday night.
Martine says when they went out on the porch for a closer look the lights quickly flew towards them, spooking their cattle.
“Then the light just started coming straight at us and it went straight over our house and headed to the northwest behind us,” said Martine. “I’ve never seen anything like that before.”
Martine’s 14-year-old daughter Baylie tried to take a picture of the objects with her cellphone, but said the camera was acting weird.
“The picture went completely green and later on that night it ended up deleting itself.”
Sam Martine was able to get her DSLR camera working, but only got a few photos. They are still not sure what they saw but the story is getting plenty of attention on the internet.
While experts aren’t convinced this is a UFO, they say sightings in Alberta are quite common.
And this isn’t the first time paranormal activity has been reported in Nanton.
“There was a video taken of three lights moving in the sky where three lights were fading and reappearing for quite some time … also in March — March 29 of 2004 [at] about 9:30 in the evening,” said Rutkowski.
