Ricky Banyard, 14, saw a strange object in the sky and followed it with a friend, Glenn Coates, through binoculars.
A domed disc-shaped object hovered at 200 feet altitude over a cemetery in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada at around 2:00 a.m. It was seen by five teenagers, including a 14-year-old named Banyard. A muffled whistle was heard coming from the object, and the object directed a light beam to the ground. Banging and 'screaming' noises heard when object took off. Charring and other physical traces were found at the site.
Ricky Banyard, 14, saw a strange object in the sky and followed it with a friend, Glenn Coates, through binoculars. It hovered near a cemetery, making a hushed whistling sound and illuminating the ground with a vertical beam of light. The object left suddenly with a roar similar to that of a jet, and a series of "bangs." Stones were found calcined at the site.
One ball was observed.
