Date of sighting: Feb 23, 2016, but reported today
Location of sighting: Clarenville, Canada
Aliens like seclusion, isolation from humanity if at all possible. This UFO sighting took place at an island with a small population. UFOs over the water are very common. This UFO is a beautiful classic disk design.
Even Christopher Columbus, it appears, saw a UFO. While patrolling the deck of the Santa Maria at about 10:00 PM on October 11, 1492, Columbus thought he saw "a light glimmering at a great distance." He hurriedly summoned Pedro Gutierrez, "a gentleman of the king's bedchamber," who also saw the light. After a short time it vanished, only to reappear several times during the night, each time dancing up and down "in sudden and passig gleams." The light, first seen four hours before land was sighted, was never explained."

CLARENVILLE, NL — Chad Haines says he’s the last person who might believe in aliens, extraterrestrials or UFOs.
But after witnessing an unidentified flying craft near his house early in 2016, he can’t explain what else it could’ve been.
While deleting some images off his camera this past week to make space in preparation for Christmas morning, Haines stumbled upon some photos he took the night of Feb. 23, 2016, from his Bayview Road home.
Reviewing the photos once more, he still couldn’t find a rational explanation for what he saw in the sky.
From the street, looking across the water toward Random Island, Haines saw a hovering object near the moon.
“It was out there for two or three hours,” Haines told TC Media today.
He says, after staying in the same spot, the object moved up and down and shot off out of sight quickly.
Haines was able to capture some photos on his camera of the unidentified flying object appearing over the water.
There were no stars in the sky that night, he says.
He says it wasn’t a plane and it was far too big to be a drone.
Like others, Haines has seen videos and reports of strange sounds, beams of light and other phenomena, but says anything could have made those effects.
But now, after witnessing and capturing an image himself, he’s unsure about the existence of the unexplained.
“I couldn’t believe it,” he said of his experience.
This isn’t the first time people have reported UFOs over Random Island.
In October, 1978, RCMP Const. Jim Blackwood was one of dozens of locals who spotted what they believed to be a UFO hovering over Random Island.
