‘Aliens are coming’: Alberta RCMP 911 senders call for UFO sightings

Blind flash of light, unidentified overhead or aliens in the doorway. Somewhere the truth is out there.

More and more Canadians seem to be “out” as they scan the night sky. The COVID-19 epidemic has caused people to spend more time outside, which has led to curiosity about astronomy and unusual calls to RCMP 911 senders.

The Alberta centers received nearly 900,000 calls last year, which is unusual – no need to send police, fire or EMS – it stands alone in the minds of 160 senders.

“There were definitely some themes about extraordinary UFO sightings and satellites,” said Tracy Dowell, Alta’s Red Man Acting Manager.

“We were getting a lot of calls with SpaceX satellite launches. They have a very specific shape in the sky, they do not hit the ground and can explain to people very quickly that there are real satellites. ”

SpaceX is an American space company founded by businessman Elon Musk.

Dowell said there are already some who believe the aliens have landed and are trying to break into their homes.

“It complicates you (and), ‘No, I hope you’re right.’ People think that,” he said.

“We have situations where people are (saying) … ‘No, this is the way it is. Aliens are coming.’ When they think wrong for some extraterrestrial experience they make sure no one really enters their home.”

On his way to work in the early hours of late February, Ivan Davis of Saskatchewan Shelbrook had his own intimate encounter.

“It’s kind of a twilight. The sun was coming up behind me, and suddenly there was a flash. Then there was this big, huge fireball, and it stayed behind for a second or two as soon as it fell,” Davis said.

“It simply came to our notice then. It was spectacular and lasted a total of six or seven seconds. It illuminated the whole sky, and then it was gone. ”

A piece of comet burning in the Earth’s atmosphere lit up the early morning sky over Alberta and Saskatchewan in February.

Winnipeg-based Ufology Research released a survey in March that found that UFOs’ visits across Canada – discs, irregular lights and floating triangular objects – increased by 46 percent by 2020.

A total of 1,243 views were recorded, the highest in a single year, said Chris Rudkovsky of the Center.

A longtime astronomer says that people look at the night sky more during epidemics.

“This is a real upheaval in the field of astronomy,” said Ron Waltron, president of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada in Saskatoon, noting that telescopes are scarce.

“People suddenly notice the night sky. They hadn’t taken the time to notice it before, so for years astronomers knew exactly what it was looking at, and people now looked up and said, ‘I don’t know what it is, so it must be a UFO. ”’

Waltron also launches satellites “for astronomers’ blockade” that are visible to the human eye. The same goes for the International Space Station on a clear night.

“(People) can’t explain what they see. There are no more unidentified flying objects than there were before during the epidemics. ”
