One man who captured an alleged UFO, which appears as a green light, above the city of Winnipeg.
“Like highways, you know … and maybe we’re in the middle of one highway,” Eduardo Pogorelsky told the broadcaster.
UFOlogy research coordinator Chris Rutkowski, who helped carry out the survey, said the likely strangest case took place in Newfoundland.
“A number of people had watched a glowing object move from side to side in the sky, and then dash away very, very quickly,” he told CTV.
