This sighting took place during the winter of 1995-96, exact date unknown.
Paul Shiaro, 22, and Craig Pulloch, 22, of Selkirk, Manitoba were driving home late one Tuesday night from a Jets game in Winnipeg. As they were northbound on Winnipeg's Perimeter Highway, Shiaro's 1987 Ford Mustang suddenly went dead.
"The motor died, the lights died," Shiaro said. "One minute the car was running as sweet as you please, and the next minute it was stopped dead on the highway. I tried over and over to start the engine, but it was no use."
Shiaro managed to coast into the breakdown lane. "Craig just sat there swearing about being stranded on a lonely, ice-covered road in the dead of night. He wasn't too happy about that. All of a sudden, there was the UFO. It just hovered in the sky, not making a sound. It was big. About as big as a house."
"Before we knew it, this thing was hanging there in the sky in front of us," Pulloch said. "It was disc-shaped with a bump on the bottom. It didn't seem to have any lights, but it had an orange-colored glow. It was very eerie. I hadn't been a believer in UFOs or science fiction in the past. But when I saw that UFO, it was like...Holy Cow! It really made a believer out of me."
The UFO hovered over the Mustang for 15 to 20 seconds and then departed.
"It didn't just cruise off, it went like a shot," Shiaro said. "Zip! And it was gone. But it didn't make a sound."
When Shiaro tried the ignition key this time, the Mustang's engine started right up. The car's horn, cigarette lighter and headlights were all working. The two men then continued on their way home. (Note: Selkirk is 36 miles south of Gimli, Manitoba, where the Royal Canadian Mounted Police investigated a saucer sighting in 1995.
