Wadena is a town in the province of Saskatchewan, located east of Saskatoon, north of Fort Qu'Appelle and north-west of Yorkton on the eastern shore of the Quill Lakes. The following experience was shared with us in 2015, but occurred in the 1960s. The location was approx. 4 miles out of town on a farm.


Ball lightning


Please Note: The above image is an example only of ball lightning and not the actual fireball described below.

The witness writes: " Five school friends and I went to stay at an old abandoned farm house one Friday night. As we approached on our bicycles, about 7:30, I felt an uneasy feeling. As we approached the house, I saw a fireball about 2 feet in diameter come from the side of the house about 4 feet above the ground moving parallel then shift and move towards us. it paused, then came towards me.We got on our bikes and rode away. I stayed and watched. It approached me slowly and I got scared and started to back away. The fireball started to change colour and get larger and with more intensity. I got more scared and rode away. The fireball followed me for awhile paralleling my speed, then backed off when I left the property.


I was told it was ball lightning, but it would not stop, following me or change form by me. To me it seemed to be an intelligent entity that wanted to communicate with me, but I was too scared to know that at the time."
