  1. That's something I'd really love to hear more about! If you'd like to share details for my research, even if just anonomously, please send me an email at otisstories [at] gmail [dot] com.
  2. Elon Musk's Starlink satellites! I've heard of similar cases... https://www.space.com/spacex-starlink-satellites-surprise-british-skywatchers.html
  3. If any of them want to chat anonymously, I'm all ears ?
  4. To the adamant non-believers on here, did you read the NY Times article I posted? That one was from 2019. Here's another similar one from 2017 that focuses on interviews with American F-18 pilots... https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/16/us/politics/unidentified-flying-object-navy.html Would love to hear the group's thoughts on these!
  5. Thanks for the responses! I try to avoid the term "UFO" precisely because it has E.T. connotations. Unidentified = unknown, right? And alien technology is only one possible explanation out of many others! I mean, people could be witnessing advanced top secret human technology, right? But I think the fact remains that trained observers such as veteran pilots do occasionally spot things that cannot be easily identified. For example, does anyone have thoughts on this incredible recent story from The New York Times? https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/26/us/politics/ufo-sightings-navy-pilots.html
  6. Wow! You too? I saw something just like that as a kid! ?
  7. Thanks for the link, Seeker. I'm looking at it now! Any thoughts on this case? https://toronto.citynews.ca/2016/11/23/object-caused-near-collision-porter-plane-not-drone/ And here are more details from the TSB: "C-GLQL, a de Havilland DHC-8-402 aircraft operated by Porter Airlines, was conducting flight POE204 from Ottawa/MacDonald-Cartier Intl, ON (CYOW) to Toronto/Billy Bishop Toronto City, ON (CYTZ). While passing through 8300 feet approximately 29 nautical miles East on the initial approach to CYTZ, the flight crew noticed an object directly ahead on their flight path. The object appeared to be solid, approximately 5 to 8 feet in diameter and shaped like an upright doughnut or inner tube. There appeared to be no relative movement and the object was rapidly getting closer to the aircraft. The captain overrode the autopilot in order to quickly descend the aircraft under the object. The object passed slightly to the right and above the aircraft. There was no impact. Both cabin crew members were in the process of securing the cabin for arrival and were not seated. They received minor injuries when they were thrown into the cabin structure. The aircraft subsequently landed at CYTZ without further incident." I believe that 99.99% of so-called "UFO" sightings have conventional explanations, and I recognize that trained observers like veteran pilots are WAY better equipped than me to analyze such cases.
  8. Hi all, I'm a Canadian journalist who has written for outlets like the Toronto Star and The Globe and Mail. Inspired by recent reporting in The New York Times and cases like this one from Toronto, I'm currently looking to talk to pilots who have encountered odd traffic in Canadian airspace, such as unusual drones/UAV/lights/objects/etc. My goal is to show that 1) events like these happen in Canadian airspace, and 2) find out if Canadian officials take the national security implications of such sightings seriously. Have a story to share? Send me a message or email me at otisstories [at] gmail [dot] com. If you wish to remain anonymous, that's totally fine with me too. Thanks! Daniel @dsotis
