Newfoundland UFO

I think I need to change the motto of this blog to "so many mysteries so little time" because there seems to be so many unsolved mysteries happening these days, that it is difficult to keep up with them. Take for instance the latest in UFO mysteries, and that is a recent sighting of a UFO over Newfoundland, Canada, and no country seeming willing to take credit. First thought to be a French missile, but the French deny that here is the story, according to the   Canadian Press

Apparently a woman in Harbour Mille, Newfoundland was taking pictures of the sunset on Monday January 25th when she saw something unusual in the sky, a rocket shaped object, with flames from the back, streaking across the sky, and she wasn't alone,
 it seems her neighbors saw three of the objects in the night sky. But so far, no one knows what the objects were, making them an Unidentified Flying Object, in the truest sense of the phrase. Not that there hasn't been some attention paid to the mystery, Public Safety Canada issued an email saying the government was aware of the media reports of UFO's over Newfoundland, and the RCMP were on the case...but so far, the RCMP have no answers.

David Charbonneau, a spokesman for Public Safety Canada, said in an email that the federal government was “aware of media reports of public sightings of unidentified objects” off Newfoundland but said the RCMP was investigating, however at that time the RCMP said, 'no we are not investigating' and referred the issue back to Public Safety Canada, in what is a typical reaction to these kinds of events.

Since this hit the news there has been lots of speculation, including a report that suggests it may have been the result of France conducting a M51 ballistic missile test from a submarine off its shores in the Atlantic as part of missile testing. Apparently an M51 has a range of 8,000 km. France and Newfoundland are 4,000 kms apart, but for it's part, France is saying they didn't do any testing in the area. There is also the French Island of St Pierre and Miquelon, which is off the coast of Newfoundland, perhaps the missile came from there.

So...what was it exactly? This is where this one gets interesting, this UFO sighting prompted a statement from the Office of The Prime Minister of Canada, who said as far as they are concerned, it was not a missile.

"There is no indication that there was ever a rocket launch," Prime Minister Steven Harper's press secretary Dimitri Soudas said in an e-mail to QMI Agency. But at the same time, they are not saying what it it wasn't a missile or rocket, but they don't know what it was that the Newfoundland residents saw and photographed.

According to CBC News,  RCMP Sgt. Wayne Edgecombe said, "It's nothing criminal," adding he couldn't reveal what the police investigation uncovered. Edgecombe said that the job of the RCMP was to determine if there was criminal activity, which he said there wasn't, but he did say that the Department of National Defence (DND) gave him some info, and he deferred to them to release the information, which they haven't, unless you consider the release from the PMO to be their release. DND have said they are waiting for some kind of report, and turned reporters back to the RCMP, who are basically shrugging their back and forth we go, with no one agency offering anything useful in terms of an explanation.

Perhaps it is criminal, in the sense that it sounds like there may be information being withheld from the public in regard to what this was, and that, of course, leaves lot's of room for questions and speculation. If they do know what it was that was spotted over Newfoundland, they should be telling us. If they don't know, then it is a UFO, and leave it at that. Doesn't mean extra terrestrials necessarily, it just means they don't know....but I think they do.....and they just don't want to tell us.......why? I was OK with officials stating they did not know, but unfortunately RCMP Sgt. Wayne Edgecombe's comment that the  Department of National Defence (DND) gave him some info leads me to think they are hiding something, which is entirely different than just saying they don't know.

This reminds me of the UFO related information that one of Canada's past defense Minister's Paul Hellyer, has spoken about in recent years, suggesting that government's know much more about UFO's than they are saying. I've posted about Paul Hellyer, who I happen to believe speaks with truth, here in Paul Hellyer His Words

I live in St. Johns, Newfoundland, and two nights ago an object matching the same description made an appearance. A number of my friends who were downtown at the time saw it. They described it at burning and orange, almost like a lantern on fire.
