The Yukon has this reputation where the sky is a theater itself. It’s a place known for its lights in the sky, where from August to April the Northern Light can be seen against a backdrop of stars.

It’s the kind of isolated place that you’d think most UFOs would avoid, but in the mid 1990s, Yukon became a place where enormous UFOs would be reported. The first sightings would come in late 1995 from the nearby Northwest Territories. Leo Norwegian, an elder from the Lı́ı́dlı̨ı̨ Kų́ę́ First Nation came forward in January of 1996 with a sighting he’d had that previous November.

From there the folks of UFO*BC would document the sightings of Sarah Baker and Sue Malcolm, twin sisters who owned a gold claim and observed a gigantic cigar shaped object directly over it.

Later that year, 22 people claimed to see an object that was approximately a half mile wide. These sightings were so good that they were able to estimate the size base on the triangulation of the reports.

Bex Atwood, who is ⅓ of Liminal Earth, and a frequent contributor on NiteDrift with Jim Perry of the Euphomet podcast, joins us to discuss the gigantic UFOs of the Yukon.
