have a video link that I shot with my iPhone. It was really strange. At
first, before I started filming, there were 6 lights, moving through
the sky in a V formation. Then, the one by one, seems to move farther
away - and disappeared. I kept filming and more joined. Did anyone else
see this? Here's the link: http://youtu.be/y8nd9g2FGnQ
2-Mar-2014, Mission, BC: (7 pm)
landlord was driving me home tonight and as we were talking a HUGE
flash of amber light appeared over the Fraser River, only a couple
hundred feet up. The entire sky lit up but a very clear orb was the
source. It must have been at least the width of the river. There was no
fore-warning, or any sign of anything after the fact. The weather is
rainy, foggy and generally miserable, but when this flashed it was
bright as day. This is the second ufo I have seen/reported since
December (the first was Dec 11th, scroll up to see). Both were
basically along the Fraser River. This was nothing like the first
sighting I had - many times bigger. If I were to hold my arm out the
object would have been 2x the size of my fist, at a 20-30 degree angle
from the ground. There are no air traffic buoyies over that part of the
river or any warning lights that could have burnt out. There should
have been nothing there at all.
28-Feb-2014, Vancouver, BC: (about 11:30 pm)
friend and I were walking West along King Edward Avenue, on the North
Side heading back to said friend's house we both saw what looked like 3
orange/red orbs above Queen Elizabeth Park.
it seemed two of the orbs were moving and one was stationary above the
other two. I would estimate the altitude was no more than 500 meters
above Queen Elizabeth Park. As well, I would estimate the position of
these objects to be slightly West and North of the Bloedel Floral
Conservatory in QE Park when viewed from a map above.
first we were intrigued and my Friend suggested that they could be
lights on a construction crane. However, there are no construction
cranes in the park. As well, I did not see any outline of any crane or
other structure around or in between the orbs.
went south along a street to get a closer look at the orbs and we were
startled by a dog in somebody's yard that seemed very aggressive
towards us. Perhaps it was aware of the orbs too, perhaps not. After
walking closer to Nat Bailey Stadium overlooking the northern face of
the park, we got a better look at the orbs.
only two were left, and they were orange/red or amber orbs of light,
with the light being uniformly distributed along the body of the orb. I
did not suspect that they were Chinese lanterns, as the light they
emitted was uniform and unflickering, and one orb was stationary while
the other was moving around it. As well, they made no noise as they
hovered above the park.
viewing the orbs for maybe 6 more minutes, the two orbs gradually
shrunk into pinpoints and then disappeared altogether. Very strange
8-Mar-2014, Sooke, BC: (00:28 am)
object is in the sky in relatively the same spot on several occasions.
Very large bright multi coloured "star" like object which continuously
moves slowly up and down or side to side. It emits a greenish light
that changes colours quite frequently. I've tried to capture the image
on my phone but wasn't really successful. Have to see it to fully
understand. I've showed my room mate who was too afraid to be outside
after I pointed it out. Not like any star or planet I have ever seen
before. Am located by the 17 mile house in Sooke bc and can see the
object directly in front of me when I am looking towards Sooke
direction in the horizon. Creepy as hell.
2-Mar-2014, Mission, BC: (7 pm)
was sitting in my livingroom talking with my husband when I saw the
night sky light up like it was daylight. From where my home is up high
in the mountain I saw a HUGE STRIP along the horizon (could have been
anywhere from the Fraser river as far as Abbotsford) but it was so
bright and flashed for only a few seconds and then went back to being
the night sky. My husband had his back to the window and the view was
just over his shoulder or I would have missed it. I was in amazement
and shock trying to describe what I had seen. It wasn't anything small
- it looked like a strip of the entire horizon had lit up. I didn't see
anything hovering or a UFO but I read that someone else had seen
something over the fraser river. It was so crazy to see the black
sky go bright blue for that second. I'm wondering if anyone else saw
anything that night.
18-Mar-2014, Mission, BC: (10:55 pm)
I would like to report a strange orange/amber light in the sky to the
north. The light was very bright and appeared to be about 100 feet
above the roof tops of 7th Avenue in Mission, BC. I saw it from my back
yard on 5th Avenue. The light got brighter and dimmed out until it just
vanished without a trace. At first I thought it was a meteor or
something and then noticed it didn't appear to be moving. I have
reported the same light a few years ago. It was very strange the whole
observation lasted about 2 minutes and it went from being very light to
gone in the time. I heard no noise or anything that would indicate a
plane or helicopter. I would suggest it was not flare as I didn't seem
to drop down in an arc or move at all.
I would like to hear some explanation if you have one.
Your observation sounds like a Chinese lantern. Are you not aware of them?
They are paper lanterns that use a candle to heat the internal air making the lantern rise.
The candle also provides illumination. The lanterns will sometimes flicker before they burn out.
These sorts of sightings are quite numerous and we frequently receive similar sightings from areas all over the lower mainland.
Oct-2012, North Vancouver, BC:
took these pictures in October 2012 for a pilot show (Red Widow) shot
on the marina in North Vancouver where I live. I took some picture at
the same time, and only on this one we can see a green light. I asked
to the Director if it was a device from the show and he told me not,
probably a reflect in the clouds. I will be curious to have your point
of view. If you need a better quality of course I can provide it.
Thank you for your time!
Given the colour of the light and the reflection pattern, I can
comfortably say it is a green coloured laser being fired from the
ground up to the cloud cover (notice the dot at the center and the
dispersion around into the cloud).
Thank-you for the photo!
21-Mar-2014, Abbotsford, BC: (8:15 pm)
husband and I were driving home tonight and I noticed some blinking
lights up towards the low hills in East Abbotsford. I thought it was
strange because of the position as it was just to the left of the red
beacon lights for the airplanes. As we continued driving, the object
got closer and I got really excited. I could make out a triangular
shape with a red, green and white light at each tip.
was flying low and was about 4" inches across in
diameter. I knew for sure it was a UFO, when I saw a plane in the
background heading towards the airport travelling at a much faster
speed. It put everything into perspective as to how slowly the object
was travelling and how close it was to the ground. We were home in
under a minute and i jumped out of the car to try to get a picture, but
it was gone. Darn!!
Thank-you for the report!
Can you provide a bit more details for us, so that we can mentally have a picture of the event?
How high off the ground would you say the object was when you saw it? Also how far part were the lights? You mention 4 inches in diameter - I am having difficulty in understanding the meaning of that size. Do you mean the lights themselves were 4" across, or that there were 4" apart (and thus the object was the size of a bagel)?
The colours you describe are the colour requirements for lights on aircraft:
So, the obvious question: What made you think it couldn't be an aircraft given that you were near an international airport, and around the flight path of known aircraft?
I am of course playing the devil's advocate, but this type of information is essential to paint a clear picture.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
22-Mar-2014, Steveston, BC: (10:40 pm)
husband was outside of our townhouse walking our dog. My daughter
summoned me from upstairs and I could hear my husband calling for me to
come quickly. My daughter told me as I was throwing on shoes that they
saw 3 red/orange objects coming down from the sky.
I got on scene these 3 objects had vanished. As my husband was
explaining to me what he saw (3 red/orange round objects hovering in a
triangle over about a 2 minute period) another red orange object
appeared from west to east.
looked like it was staying in one position for about 1 minute then
started to have bright bursts like pulsating pattern. I caught this one
on video on my phone and it was 2mins 37 seconds long before it
had never seen flares before but we called it into the police because
we were concerned that a vessel might be in distress on the Fraser
given our location.
We were patched through to the coast guard I believe (jrcc victoria) whom we spoke with and I also emailed the video along to.
was a very clear night last night, planes overhead passed us and this
object I witnessed was completely different. The operator told us that
flares generally only last 45 seconds to 1 minute. Also suggested that
it could be Japanese lanterns?
was emailed back that the sightings were established not to be of a
marine emergency but no confirmation if any one else had reported this
later took the dog out to Garry Point and saw nothing further. Went on
Google and my husband said that a sighting in 2011 in Colorado that was
photographed beared an uncanny resemblance to the 3 reddish orange
hovering objects> sent chills right up my spine! They also looked
like the one I witnessed!
Stumbled across this site and wanted to post to see if anyone else in Richmond/Ladner area had also seen this last night.
Thank-you very much for the report.
I know it may be very difficult to answer, but how far apart were the objects to one another, and how high up were they and what sort of speed were they moving (snail's pace or jet liner fast)?
At first glance, as the coast guard seems to have ruled out the use of emergency flares (from a real emergency) it may be something as mundane as a group of Chinese lanterns. As they loose lift (due to the candle burning out) they will start of descend and in their final death throe, give bursts of light as the candle flickers and dies.
Now of course, if the speed and altitude were known, then this could rule out this (rather simple) explanation, but given the large number of such sightings we have from the Richmond/Vancouver area it does lean in that direction. Looking forward to hearing back from you!
my husband was on the phone with "jrcc victoria" the operator asked how
many fists from the ground if stacked on top of another. I used my fist
and counted 5 because there was still one left when he was on the phone.
as high as the airplanes that passed overhead but much higher than
surrounding buildings and trees, as well as lamp posts. Bright orange
red distinctive colour not of any boat masts/ ships/ lampposts, etc.
slower than a plane. When it came into view it seemed to stop and hover
in front of us at a distance. We initially thought it must be right
above the Fraser.
We are 2 blocks away from the river.
started to move further East, appeared to have a steady glow with a
slight pulse. Disappeared after 2 mins 40 seconds. 4 in total.
The first 3 were in a triangle and one slightly moved around according to my husband. No noise at all emitting from them.
the time I felt no fear but I did feel like it hovered within our view
almost intentionally. (I feel very weird admitting that but it's the
honest truth). When it appeared to the both of us it was moving at a
steady pace from West to East but then stopped. Restarted at a snail's
pace before it vanished Eastwardly. We were looking at the object South
post on your site from Vancouver that has a link on YouTube looked very
similar to what we saw if that helps. Height about the same.
Yes it's entirely possible that they are lanterns of some kind, but my husband disagrees.
Thanks for your reply.
21-Aug-1979, Pender Island, BC:
happened at night about 10:30 pm my children and I went to bed and my
son age 5 woke me up saying mommy make them go away. I first thought he
was dreaming but he told me to look up in the sky outside the tent. I
saw a very bright light there. He told me they wanted to come and get
him. He was very scared. I could not hear anything but he said he could
hear them. Do you think this was just a dream or could it have been
Thank-you for the report - very interesting account!
there is no definitive way of saying one way or another. As anyone with
children knows, 5-year olds have amazingly vivid imaginations. However,
what you describe has many elements found in typical abduction cases.
Has your son (or anyone else in your family) had any other experiences
since that event? One question for you, can you describe anything
about the light? Did you watch it for any length of time?
think it is likely you will never know the answer to your question,
perhaps it was an abduction (although he did not appear to be abducted)
- but perhaps, it was just a vivid dream that brought on by sleeping
I look forward to hearing back. Thank-you again for the report.
31-Mar-2014, Kelowna, BC: (1:30 am)
VERY saw a bright amber colored, twinkling, star, March 31, 2014
at 1:30 AM. The colors brightened around the edges, so I figured it may
be an ember from a fire, though I saw no fires, nor did I smell smoke.
We live on a flight path and can tell which direction planes are coming
from or going to. This light appeared to be a very bright star, not the
same altitude as a plane, higher. It did emit a very small red light
every 30 or so seconds. There was no sound, and no other planes in view
to compare it to. The light originally stayed put, as if floating in
the air when I first I saw it. Thought it was the prettiest star I had
ever seen. It passed by slower than a large gliding bird - in no
particular hurry, heading up the lake towards Vernon - it did not
appear to be going towards the Kelowna airport. Just curious
enough to ask if anyone saw this. Thank you.
2-Apr-2014, Kelowna, BC: (2:30 am)
what appear to be stars, shaped in the former of an anniversary ring,
three tiered, with white lights with one, perhaps two red lights in the
middle. The bigger one appears to be flight height, the smaller has
slowly ascended, and getting harder to see. They appear to be over hwy
97 in Kelowna, just before Glenmore Drive, and after Clement. Never saw
shapes like that. They certainly aren't bright enough to notice.
The smaller of the two is nearly out of eyesight.
2-Apr-2014, Richmond, BC: (1:19 am)
into my townhouse complex at 1:19 am I saw a bright white light cross
in from from right to left. I was facing north so that would make the
light moving from east to west in the northern sky. Though lacking
clear perspective, I would estimate it's position as being over the
airport, vancouver or over the northshore mountains though could have
been further away depending upon size.
The light was a solid blue white, probably around 5000 kelvin. It was
very distinct against the black cloudless area of sky. While moving
east to west, it decended at an angle of about 20 to 30 degrees. The
decent was not smooth and appeared to incorporate one or two dips while
changing from oval to flat to oval and possibly flat again. IF it were
saucer shaped, the best explanation would be that it was banked, then
flattened out, then banked again, then possibly flattened again before
it left my line of sight. The changes in bank (shape) appeared to
co-incide with the dips. The size of the object would be about .1 to
.15 inch at arm's length.
time in view would amount to about 1.5 - 2.0 seconds max. My line of
sight was blocked to the east by other townhouses and the latter part
of the decent was also blocked as the object disappeared behind the
roofs of other townhouses in the immediate distance.
not appear to be a meteorite although I can not rule that out. I have
seen several but none like this. It was moving very slow for a
meteorite yet much too fast for a plane. I have been in aviation for
nearing forty years so I know absolutley it was not an airplane.
Sept-2013, Chief Matthews Bay, BC:
just went through my photos taken last year on a boat trip from Kitimat
to Kemano and on to Chief Mathews Bay in Gardner Canal, British
Columbia. The area is very remote and there was nobody around for
dozens of miles. I was not aware of the UFO when I took this picture in
September 2013. It is only now, in April 2014, that I 'discovered' the
UFO in this image. You have to edit the image in a photo editor and
zoom in on the object. It is definitely saucer shaped. I would
appreciate an expert opinion on this. The coordinates of the sighting
are 5į20"17"N 128į07'11"W. I have attached a photo of the UFO and a
Google Earth capture of the location. I was looking upriver.
It looks like an out-of-focus bug near the camera.
a matter of being clear, since you saw no UFO, there was no UFO. All
you have is a "photographic anomaly", and one which on face value is
easily explainable as a normal bug or something else like wind blown
5-Apr-2014, Roberts Creek, BC: (9:15 pm)
a formation of 6-8 lights, appeared above tree line but below overcast
clouds. Silent, no sound. Drifted to left slightly then we ran in to
tell my husband and they were gone when we ran back 30 seconds later.
We both asked each other if we had seen it, I'm not afraid of going out
in the dark, I walk my dog each night in it, but tonight was
incredible, it WAS something unique!!
Fall 2013, Vancouver, BC: (4:00 - 4:30 pm)
was driving home after work one day in fall of 2013. This was about 5-6
months ago but I canít remember the date, except it was a work day
(M-F). It was a very clear sunny day, but still very chilly and dry
because it was fall, there was not a single cloud as far as the eye can
see. I can clearly see the Vancouver Island to the WEST and Mt. Baker
to the EAST. Normally if there is any cloud cover or humidity you canít
see that far out, it gets blurry.
was driving from work (Downtown) to home (Richmond), and as I was
crossing the Oak St. bridge heading South at about 60-70Km/h, I noticed
a single strange cloud to my EAST at a distance of about 3Km above the
Knights St. bridge. It was a large cloud looking thing but I
could clearly tell that it was far away and high above. As I kept
looking at this object I remember thinking itís odd that there is only
1 cloud in the entire Fraser valley and no other. I also thought it was
strange shape for a cloud.
- It was perfectly round at the top and
bottom. Most clouds are flat at the bottom and round at the top. They
also are never perfectly oval; they have lumps and different shades of
- It was dark gray in the center and lighter gray/silver
towards the edge. Normally its dark at the bottom and light at the top
where the sun shines on it.
- There was no motion, I was moving south and the object stayed relative to my movement.
to this point I am still thinking itís a cloud just a strange one,
until something weird happened. On the left side of the object there
was a shimmer of reflective light, the kind you see when metal reflects
light. The shimmer started at the top left and moved down to bottom
left of the object. The light reflected appeared to have the colors of
the rainbow with a metallic feel. I knew it could not have been an
airplane even though it was directly above the flight path, for these
- Iíve seen hundreds of airplanes landing
EAST to WEST in same direction. The first thing you notice is the front
head light, even during the day. This object had no lights.
- At the same distance the object was twice the width and three times the height of a mid size (200 passenger) airplane.
- At this distance the planes already have the landing gear down and are visible. But NOT this object.
- At this distance the wing tips with engines hanging down are visible. But NOT this object.
- At this distance any airplane that is landing will be
over my head in about 20 seconds. The object did not move at all. It
took me about 2 min to drive across the bridge.
this point I knew I was looking at something strange and had rolled
down my window to get ready to take a picture. But I was already
towards the end of the bridge, and as I passed couple of trees the
object was gone. This happened in less than a second. At this point I
knew this canít be a cloud as I have never seen a cloud dissipate in
less than a second. This object was way too big to be any kind of
airplane and way to perfectly round to be a cloud. Clouds have
different shades and lumps, but this object was very plain looking with
only 2 shades of gray, dark on inside, light on outside. Also as far as
I know clouds donít reflect light in the intensity as a solid metal
is a mock up that I made to depict what I saw. I also include an image
of an actual airplane to show the size and detail comparison between
the two. The image is made from a 3rd point of view, so imagine that
the car behind the van on the bridge is me looking EAST in same
direction. This is not a picture of Oak St. bridge, itís a similar
picture I found on the internet. The smudge on the left side of the
object depicts the light glimmer I saw which was very quick.
9-Apr-2014, Vancouver, BC: (8:45 pm)
live close to Renfrew sky train at 15th & Slocan. Last night, I
decided to walk to the store for a tasty beverage. Upon exiting my back
door, I noticed two bright star-like lights in the eastern sky. They
immediately caught my attention as it was not dark yet and no other
stars were visible, so I thought to myself; 'What the fuck?' (pardon my
french.) I stared at them for a second and could not believe my eyes as
they started moving in a manner I've never seen a plane or helicopter
move. One of them started descending and moving further away, much to
my amazement it faded away and vanished before my eyes...WHAT THE
FUCK?! I called my roommate to come look, he just missed the vanishing
one, but the second one started to slowly ascend, pulsating in
brightness in a seemingly random pattern. It found a position and
remained stationary. We stared at it for about 10 mins, the thing just
pulsating. He went in, I walked slowly to the store staring at the
object the whole time. I stopped and stared at it for about 30 mins, by
this time the stars were out. The object was almost indistinguishable
from the stars, save for the fact that it was slightly brighter and
continued pulsating. I noticed the second one (barely visible) was
floating around the area, almost scanning, I would say... it would
sometimes flash faintly and then fade again.... The whole time I
watched these things I had an intense tingly-cold sensation all
throughout my body....weird!!! That's pretty much it, I watched the
stationary one for over an hour, waiting for it to do something. It
didn't. The thing is you would probably never be able to tell the
difference between it and a star if you didn't know.
Thanks for listening.
