Today, Monday, August 18, 2003, I received a telephone call from "Pat" who
lives in Kelowna, British Columbia. The lady was very upset and had a hard
time speaking of the event that took place with her and a close female friend
of hers. She told me today that a friend had brought over a newspaper article
from the Kelowna Capital Newspaper. The headline read: "Seeking Witnesses to
UFO." The newspaper was dated August 15, 2003.
Here is her story:
At about 12:05 a.m., July 31, 2003 the two ladies were playing around on the
computer when "Linda" said, "We haven't done any star gazing in a long time",
so Pat (the lady who contacted me) said, "You're right, lets go out and do
some star gazing". They left home at 12:05 a.m. heading out to an area where
they would get a look at the clear night sky without having lights to obscure
their view. Pat drove to Glenmore which is north from where she lives and is
on the back road heading to Winfield from Kelowna, B.C.
They were driving along and Pat reported that there was quite a bit of traffic
for that time of the night but after they decided to stop just off to the side
of the road to see what they might notice, the traffic stopped coming. There
was not a light from any vehicles, not anything other than a very dark stretch
of road. Pat grabbed her flashlight and shone it into the sky as she has done
this in the past. Her friend Linda has the binoculars on the other side of the
car scanning the starry night sky. They were there only a minute out of the
car when Linda said, "This is really strange. There are three stars up in the
sky and formed into a triangle shape." All three lights at this time were
solid white. Both ladies watched as the three white lights started moving, but
moving together. The witness with the binoculars said "Stars don't do that",
and Pat replies, "Of course not", as she thought it may have been a plane or
something. Linda replies, "No this is not a plane", as the lights were
changing color to a neon green and the object had stopped and hovered just
ahead of their car.
Pat turned the headlights off, and shone her flashlight down the road in front
of her car. They were worrying about animals such as a bear, cougars, etc..
being around in this isolated area. As she shone the light up the road both of
the women spotted something which frightened them a lot. Five sets of eyes
staring at about 40 feet away from them. As frightened as they were, their
first thoughts were of coyotes or some other wild animal, but she said once
you really look your brain takes it in.
Pat describes the creatures as being roughly four feet tall, dark gray
shoulders and coming towards the women. Pat said "I was so scared I could
hardly talk and could hardly breathe". She yelled to her friend Linda, "get in
the car, get in the car". Pat said they both scrambled to get back into the
vehicle but she said it was like moving through quicksand and it felt
horrible. Being so terrified and trying to move as fast as they possibly
could, it felt as if everything was slowing down around them.
Once they were both back in the car, Pat tried to turn the ignition on so she
could get the power windows up. But all the electrics on the car were failing.
The dome light and headlights were going off and on, by themselves, and as she
said, "Everything was going nuts" !
Finally the car started and they turned around in the middle of the road and
sped off towards home. As they traveled along they noticed a fair bit of
traffic coming in their direction. (Pat commented to me, "Where was all the
traffic when all this was happening?") As they drove along the road, Pat said
to Linda, "This is the weirdest thing. I feel like electricity, my whole body
is tingling just like I was zapped by a charge from a battery". When Linda
heard this, she said, "I didn't want to say anything to you as you might think
I was nuts, but I am feeling the same. As if I was hit by an electrical
charge." As Linda was explaining how she felt, and facing Pat she glanced at
the clock in car and said, "Jesus Pat, look at the time" ! Pat said, "What are
you talking about?" Linda said, "We were only stopped and out of the car for a
few minutes at the most, and the time of the car's clock reads an extra 25
minutes of time."
As they drove along and close to home they both discussed it and wondered if
they had imagined it all. As they were just about home, they turned onto Baker
Street which is covered in darkness next to a field. All of a sudden they saw
this bright, glowing neon green ball low in the sky. The object started moving
to the right, "stop", left, "stop", right, "stop", left, "stop" and then it
started to move away until the ladies car came to a halt, and so did the
object. Before they knew it, the ball of green light started heading towards
them at a high rate of speed and hovered high above their car. At this point
they just wanted to get to their home and be as far away from whatever it was
The driver sped off quickly again and they headed into an orchard which was
very close by. They thought they would not be seen hiding amongst the trees,
plus there was no lighting in this area to reveal their position. Pat looked
at her friend and said, "They will never find us here". Both women are sitting
in the car trying to get themselves together as the driver said she was losing
it at this point. Only after a very short time after arriving in the orchard
Linda said, "Pat you better look out the front windscreen and look up
slightly. We don't have just one green ball of light, there are now three,
glowing green objects." The way the green lights were in the sky, it looked as
if the they formed a triangle formation and all moving together. After a short
period of time each of the green lights moved away in a different direction.
(HBCC UFO asked if the witness could give some idea of how large the green
lights were. The witness told me each of the lights were about half the size
of a full moon). After seeing the lights flying off into different directions
the ladies raced home as quickly as they possibly could.
Once safe at home, both ladies shaken, they tried to come up with some
reasonable explanation for what just happened. They tried to put it out of
their minds but that was impossible !!!!
Later on both ladies turned in for the night and when they woke up in the
morning, Pat discovered a large bruise on her left breast and another on the
bottom of her foot. She did not know how they got there but she did know they
were extremely painful.
As she sat drinking a cup of coffee Linda finally got up and was walking down
the hall towards the kitchen when she said, "God, good morning - do I feel
rough this morning". After Linda finished saying that Pat watched as blood
came pouring from Linda's nose. Pat jumped up, ran and grabbed a towel. Linda
also commented that she was having a lot of pain in her lower back area. She
asked Pat to have a look to see if there was anything that could be seen. So
she looked and gasped, there was a large circle burned into her skin and was
located in the middle, lower back area (tail bone). Also bruises were found on
Linda's body as well, some of them appeared to look like finger marks and
there were three of them on each thigh. Both women at this point were shocked,
upset and very frightened.
Linda, who was up visiting from the Abbotsford area, ended her holiday and
headed back home. Two days after being home in Abbotsford, B.C. she went to
consult her family doctor because of the terrible pain she was still
experiencing from her lower back. Her doctor examined her, and the injury to
her back. The doctor said, "If I didn't know any better I would say you have a
radiation burn." He was of course referring to the burn mark on Linda's back.
The doctor is still trying to heal this mark on her back, as something had
burned right through the outer layer of this lady's skin.
(HBCC UFO Note: I will be keeping in contact with the witness to this
event and hope I may be able to help in some small way).
Update to this Story:
On the night this frightening experience took place, another couple who
couldn't sleep decided to go out for a walk on the warm evening. They looked
up at times into the night sky, and all of a sudden they noticed a bright
glowing neon colored light. The couple also added that the light was moving in
the strangest way, by coming to a complete stop, moving again, stopping and
then moved off very quickly. The light was seen in the same vicinity where the
ladies had been stopped at the side of the road.
This sounds like it gives confirmation to what the ladies saw that night.
HBCC UFO Research Footnote: I would recommend to anyone finding such marks, as
described here in this report, to consult a professional, such as their family
doctor. One has to remember that they do not have to walk in to the doctor's
office and make claims of missing time, or possible abduction. Let your doctor
come up with the answers. Also, there are some very good people who carry out
work in the abduction field, and I will be very happy to put you in contact
with such folks if you would like. Just write to me and request that I do so,
and give me permission to pass your personal information along.
I would also like to add, this Missing Time event took place around the same
date 147 witnesses watched one amazing event unfold in southeastern British
Columbia. I also received a flood of sighting reports which also came from
this area. July 27/28 to August 18, 2003.
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to write me an email.
