Calgary, Alberta - Did A UFO Cause A Power Outage?

Date: February 2001
Time: evening

I received a telephone call from a woman who resides in Calgary,
Alberta. The family has a very good view of the city of Calgary.
One evening the family watched a craft over top of Calgary back
in 2001. They reported observing an object for approximately two
hours. The lady told me the family got a new telescope for
Christmas and this evening in February was the first time they
really tried it out. It was cold  outside so they set the
telescope up indoors and viewed the skies from the comfort of
their home looking through one of their large living room
windows. The lights were turned off as they did not want to have
their view obscured.

The family noticed a bright object high in the sky and first
thought it may have been the planet Venus. So they turned the
telescope slightly to have a peek at it. (At this point I should
tell you that the weather conditions were good and the skies
clear and the temperature down to about minus 29).

As they lined up the telescope using the view finder and then
looked through the scope they were surprised to see an object
which was shrouded in clouds. There were no other clouds visible
in the sky that they noticed. The object that was witnessed  had
an elliptical shape to it. One end of it was poking out of the
cloud cover and they were surprised to see windows on the craft.
She said she could clearly see through the telescope that the
object had windows which ran down along its side.

The lady said it looked as if whatever this was, was trying to
impersonate a star. The object would move around the sky very
slowly and if anyone on the ground would have seen it, they may
have just thought it to be a star or planet. She said it was
very high up in altitude. After taking roughly a five minute
break from looking through their telescope she came back and now
viewed two bright objects. One was stationary over top of the
other and offset by half the length of one of the crafts. Both
objects still wrapped in a cloud cover and she saw a long tube
which was connecting the two objects at roughly a forty five
degree angle. The woman said it was a beautiful, cylindrical
shaped tube wrapped in cloud. Also it was reported that the
cloud cover stuck very close to the shape of the objects and not
spread out across the sky.

It was the bottom object, or the end which was sticking out of
the cloud cover that she could see had windows, which were the
same shape of the objects or roundish. When the objects moved
directly overhead of Calgary all of the electricity went out.
When the objects moved to the outskirts of the city the power
came back on and eventually the crafts moved out of sight. The
lady said it was a very exciting night and one they would never

I made an enquiry to see if there was a power outage in the
early New Year of 2001. I was told there was an electrical
disruption in February of 2001.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
