- 190 Description: On the 10th of January
1991 I was traveling with a friend checking a trapline approx 20 miles
southeast of Ft. Resolution Northwest Territories. My snowmachine experienced
mechanical difficulties which resulted in us being forced to walk approx
12 miles back to a highway where we had left our vehicle and snowmobile
- The weather at the time was quite mild
for January - minus 10 - and there was light snow falling. My snowmachine
had broke down at approx 11:00 a.m. We walked for several hours until about
5: p.m. at which time we stopped for a lunch break. We made a small fire
to warm up and boil some water for tea.
- We were in the center of a small clearing
roughly 300 ft in diameter and sitting under a large spruce tree. We had
been there for approximately fifteen minutes when we began to hear a low
humming sound approaching from the east.
- The sound grew steadily louder and the
hum turned to a very low throbbing sound - like a huge engine running at
idle. The whole area was charged with an electric tingling.
- We looked up but did not see anything
of any substance. After about one minute, the object seemed to be hovering
directly above our location. We still did not see anything.
- Suddenly, there was an intense flash
of light like a million flashbulbs going off at once. There was a pause...and
then another intense flash of light approx 5 seconds after the first, and
finally a third flash.
- At this point the noise began to move
west in the direction that we whad been travelling. The low heavy throbbing
sound continued and finally faded away. We packed up our belongings and
continued our walk back to the highway.
- At no time did we observe anything, just
the incredibly deep throbbing sound and the three flashes of light. We
arrived back at the highway at 23:00 and returned to Ft. Resolution. I
am a private pilot with several hundred hours of flight time. I also have
approx 12,000 hrs of time in various types of helicopters and fixed wing
aircraft as a professional firefighter. I am familiar with all the types
of aircraft that are flown in the NWT and have never experienced flight
characteristics this object exhibited.
