A video of a formation of UFOs that the witness claimed was chasing him was just one of the multiple sightings in and around Brandon, Canada, last week, according to various news reports. In fact, so many witnesses came forward that the UFO sightings made the local news. And when it was posited that said UFOs might have been flares from a military exercise, conspiracy theorists started floating the idea of another government cover-up.

The Daily Express reported last week that comparisons of the multiple UFO sightings of a formation of glowing objects in the sky above Brandon, Canada, have been made to the 1997 incident now known as “The Phoenix Lights,” which was comprised of dozens of sightings of a triangular UFO and the appearance of a series of glowing orbs in the skies of Arizona. Not only were the basic components of both incidents similar, but, according to a news report by CTV Winnipeg, local authorities have said that the unidentified objects seen may have been flares used in a recent military exercise — the very same argument proposed to explain the Phoenix Lights. It is an explanation that was dismissed as a government cover-up in 1997 and, unsurprisingly, has been promptly dismissed as an attempted government cover-up by UFO enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists with regard to the Brandon UFOs as well.

Foremost among the Brandon sightings is the short video filmed by a witness who claimed he was terrified by the UFOs and thought they might have been chasing him. He uploaded his video on November 26 but said he did not wish to disclose his real name, according to CTV.
