Sightings Comes To Surrey

By Tom Zytaruk- Surrey Now, August 1995

Video footage of bright white triangles flying over Surrey has drawn a California -based television crew here.

Green Timbers resident Bill Oliver, and about a dozen neighbours have seen the UFO zig-zagging high above their neighbourhood several times since early May. One neighbour reportedly saw the object again last Friday.

Oliver, a Vancouver school board employee, has seen it about four times himself. He's even videotaped the object as it pulsates, zooms around a bit then appears to fly behind a tree.

The video attracted the attention of Sightings, an American program which explores the paranormal. Oliver and his neighbours were interviewed by the program Sunday, and are expected to appear on the prime-time program in October.

"I just basically said I don't know what it is", Oliver said he told the Sightings crew. "They (the crew ) were really laid back."

This isn't the first time Surrey UFO sightings have drawn attention from across the border. Last summer, a Fox network film crew came from Los Angeles to interview local residents for an episode of Encounters, another program exploring the paranormal.

More than 40 UFO sightings have been reported in this area over the past two decades, resulting in the area being dubbed the Surrey-Delta Corridor.

Most sightings occurred in the area bounded by Scott Road to the west, King George Highway to the east, Mud Bay to the south and the Fraser River to the north.
