Description of Area / Surroundings

City of 20000 to the South and then Great Slave Lake Airport to the West and then wilderness Wilderness to the North and East

Full Description & Details

Camping with my son and daughter. Shortly after 10 pm the object appered from the southwest at @ 30km/h and less than 1000 feet along edge of an airport next to the campground - not an airport flight path. It followed this course for about 1 km and made a 90 degree turn to the northwest over the campground. It was low enough that most campers in the wooded campground saw it as it went over thier sites. The site that I had was on a hill and we had a full veiw as it traveled northwest for another km before blinking out.

The second night (Sept. 2) it appeared from further down from the northeast to northwest heading at a distance of @ 1km form the point where it turned the previose night and again followed the second leg to the point where it blinked out the previose night. Again it was noticed by dozens of camper as it passed over thier sites.

A few people thought it might be a chinese lantern but it was clearly under control to be on the same course two nights in a row. Being so close to the airport it wouldn't be a prank with some sort of toy. We have seen chinese lanterns in the past and it was clearly not one.

Each Incident lasted about 90 seconds.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Possibly some sort of secret military done?? Nothing like I have ever seen before Definatly under control
