Unknown object over northern Manitoba

My colleague (an airline pilot) took these photos in November or December last year, that is, just a couple of months ago.

Unfortunately, I don't have the original copies, only smaller versions, but I could probably get them.

They were taken from the cockpit above Lake Winnipeg, which is located in the north of Manitoba, Canada.

The detail is not very good, but does anyone have an idea of what it is? This was not the case in TCAS, and ATC did not have a primary purpose iirc.

Unknown object over northern Manitoba

A colleague of mine (an airline pilot) took these photos in November or December last year, so only a couple months ago.

I don’t have the original copies unfortunately, just the smaller versions but could probably get them.

These were taken from the flight deck, over Lake Winnipeg, which is in northern Manitoba, Canada.

Detail is not great, but does anyone have an idea of what it is? It wasn’t on TCAS and ATC had no primary target iirc.

Boat (watercraft)

Any watercraft, particularly of unusual shape, can be made for NGOs.

Watercraft (i.e. "craft") is self-propelled or non-self-propelled floating structure used in a water environment. These include: a warship, cargo ship, barge, pontoon, floating berth, yacht, oil platform, raft, fishing boat, submarine, submersible, floating crane, etc.

Such vessels can have not only an unusual shape but colour, be equipped with illumination, and also have sails and other protruding parts.

The reflection on the glass

The object may be reflected light or any light source. The type of source (lamp, lantern, lampshade, glare from the mirrors of any shape and .t.n.) and the type of reflective glass in the photo can be crosses, circles, objects bizarre.

Pyrotechnics is a branch of technology related to the technology of preparing combustible compounds and burning them to obtain a certain signal or effect.

Divided into:


It is observed only with the mountain or the plane is a somewhat elongated unpainted reflection. The sun is reflected in the surface of the water, but on the cloud (looks especially impressive on almost transparent haze). A relatively sharp image is obtained through a cloud of ice plates .

Often perceived as a UFO "chasing the airplane".

Versions testing, their confirmation or refutation. Additional information, notes during the study of materials

The following version is written in the comments:

My guess is that this was a search and rescue operation over the lake, and during the search, a flare was used to illuminate a certain area.

Reinforcing it with the following news:

Over the past two weekends, the Canadian Armed Forces have provided lighting to ground search and rescue teams on Vancouver Island during nighttime rescue operations on the tops of two mountain peaks.

It is also pointed out that the US Air Force uses Lake Winnipeg for missile exercises (news from 2014, but probably such use may still be relevant)

Unfortunately, the exact date of the shooting is not specified, which makes it difficult to verify these versions. 


The most likely explanation. The version, confirmed by the investigation
