Here on this insignificant spinning ball we call Earth, human beings exist almost completely unaware of the mysteries secluded and locked away in the near infinite galaxies beyond our atmosphere.

But every once in a while, someone looks up to the heavens and makes a discovery.

While traveling north on Roosevelt Avenue near Notre Dame High School, Burlington resident Keith Jacobs glanced to the sky at exactly 6:07 a.m. Monday and spotted a UFO, he said.

Jacobs was on his way to Perkins Restaurant for a morning coffee when, out of the corner of his eye, he spotted a brilliant blue light southeast of his location.

Mining Yukon's UFOs

In 1976, for several weeks, a light followed a school bus on its regular route to Whitehorse from Lake Laberge.

The bus driver saw it. So did her 10-year-old daughter and all the other kids on the bus.

It made her nervous.

She asked for a new route, and transferred to Carcross.

So did the light.

And it was closer.

It would stop and shoot across the sky.

Then, one afternoon just before Christmas, after all the children had been dropped off, something really weird happened.
