The witness wrote in in 2013, but the events described occurred in Pilot Butte on August 12th 1997:
"Friends and I had been watching the Perseids meteor shower. They left, I was clearing up. Saw the Northern lights and went to my back gate to see them, I saw what I can only describe as a black gathering low in the sky about 100yds away, almost like a flock of birds fluttering together. Curious I watched this and was shocked to see a huge, silent boomerang, seemingly float silently towards me and above me. It had some odd protuberances on the underside. No lights. It seemed to be the same craft that we had all seen the previous night, while we were lying on a friend's trampoline, watching for meteors.It was so close that I could have thrown a stone at it and hit it. It hovered over the lamp post about 50 ft away turned slowly . then shot off to the North like a bat out of hell. Too fast for me to see. ( incidentally there was a crop circle discovered in a farmers field up north the next day) I was shaking and ran into the house and locked all the doors and windows. I couldn't stop shaking. I immediately wrote all this down and made a sketch.I contacted the Moose Jaw air base the next day , but they didn't know anything, also the local airport in Regina, no one had any news.A few days later my plants changed colour and my sunflowers doubled and tripled my flowers had half red and half yellow petals. I contacted several nurseries to get info, but was not successful. There were no spills of chemicals or anything. My neighbours and I were organic gardeners at the time.I have never forgotten this experience, and it certainly wasn't the Moon, Venus, swamp gas or anything but an unknown craft of some sort. (It didn't have Galactic Airlines on the side) so I have no idea if it was from Earth or where ever. I have looked since to see if there were any similar sightings and have never found any, especially not with the strange lumpy things underneath.While I am no scientist, I can not see how these protuberances would, be helpful to a flying machine. I would have thought that it would produce drag or something.Don't know whether you would be interested in this as it happened so long ago. "
