I have a video I would love to send to you guys as well, it's about a minute long. There were about 7 or 8 orb like lights, orange/red in color hovering over the ocean over sunset beach. They were moving in strange patterns, going up and down and back and forth. They were incredibly bright and would rise up, very high and then fade out. Some would sink low and fade out. The whole event went on for about 20 minutes with various orb like objects appearing, moving around the sky in strange patterns and then fading out. Can't explain it and would love someone to take a look at the video and let me know what they think. It was truly breathtaking.

Hello. I was on your recently added sighting page and I came across the sighting in Victoria (7-Apr-2016, Victoria. BC: (9:18 pm)).  I have seen this ALOT lately in Nanaimo! I noticed them in mid February after I came home from work it got dark and I saw an orange light on the horizon towards the harbour it was slowly hovering north then another one appeared slowly beside it then another then they disappeared in the same fashion. I see these lights often I can distinguish the difference between planes coming in and these weird orange-yellow orb lights. One night really has me weirded out: I was staring at these lights (and this was the first night I saw them.) and I was trying to get photos on my iphone but couldn't capture the orbs in the dark from the distance I was at. But I noticed the orbs were circling the city slowly and looked like they were hovering over the town. No noise. Just hovering. It started around 9:30 and I they went out of my view about 30 mins later. I first thought they may be drones but drones are unsteady in wind and you can hear them. These were noiseless and seemed to almost float across the sky all three of them. I haven't seen them do that since February. But I periodically see them over the horizon doing their strange dance.

I was not witness to this personally, but my wife was. Around 11 pm as she was about to retire for the evening on Saturday night, June 11, 2016, my wife observed a large spherical shaped craft with lights around the periphery of the craft, visible through the evening’s thin cloud cover as it hovered over Green Timbers forest in Surrey. She said it appeared to be massive. It moved a little, but unlike any conventional aircraft, then slowly ascended further, and further away until it was no longer visible at all. By the time she alerted me to what had happened it had disappeared altogether. We live on 101A Avenue facing west toward 149th Street and toward Green Timbers Forest. Curious to know if you had any other reports on this occurrence? FYI, my wife does not drink, and does not do any drugs, so I believed her when she told me what she saw.

UFO*BC Replies:

Good evening,

Thank-you for the report. I know the area quite well, and it is certainly an interesting sighting. Does your wife think it could have been some type of “quad copter” – however unlikely given the time of the day, there have been reports of one flying around with LEDs on it, something like this:

Would it be possible to have your wife draw us what she saw – and perhaps (time permitting) we could come and talk to you both in person?


Witness Replies:

Thanks for the reply. I showed her the video of the quad copter and she said it was nothing like that at all. She said there were no red or green coloured lights, only a slight yellow-ish green hue to them. The ring was about the size of two city buses end to end across the middle so maybe something like 80 feet across and really couldn’t see the top of the craft due to the clouds. She said she wouldn’t even attempt to draw it, because she can’t draw.

I live in North Vancouver and from my balcony I have a view of the north shore mountains particularly around Grouse Mountain. It was cloudy and I was scanning the horizon to see if the weather was going to break. I could see the mountains under the cloud cover. Suddenly I saw two red orbs rise above the apartment building across from me. They appeared to be following a path going up the side of the mountain. They initially were in line one following the other. When they reached the top next to Grouse they changed their position and were flying side by side and started into the clouds. eventually they disappeared. As I was standing there I noticed another wave of these red lights. There were four of them this time and took the same route as the first two. They were in single file and as they approached the top of the mountain they spilt up and headed into the mountain. I had called my son to come and see what was happening. We stood there watching and tried to figure what they were. As they disappeared into the clouds another wave started up the mountain. They were following the same route as those before. The light were all uniform and were flashing intermittently. I was baffled. This was the first time I had ever witnessed this. It has made me a believer. Really don't know how to explain. Unfortunately I was unable to get photos. But my son is my witness as I am his. Wow!

Hello Ron,

Do you think you are seeing Sky or Chinese Lanterns? They come is various shapes, sizes and colours and are often released in groups. Sadly they have become the de facto explanation for many lights in the sky, as they often fly "in formation" and slowly move up, often appearing motionless and then "disappear" (simply burn out). So as for a mundane explanation, on the balance of probability,  I do think this may fit the bill.

Ultimately as we did not see it, then ours is just an "educated" guess - the ultimate take-away from this encounter we will leave up to you. Here is a link:

1977/1978, North Vancouver, BC:

I was a little girl, about 4-5 years old. Sitting in the passenger seat of the car. Driving home from Lions Gate Hospital. We just visited my grandma. Mom promised to stop at the corner store on West third  looking forward to a candy stash. We turned into west 6. Heading towards Mahon. It was dark out and a very clear night.

I looked towards the Church. Hovering above the steeple was this thing. I didn't know what it was. Never seen or heard of such things. Nor did I know they existed. Mom went quiet. She stopped the car, stared a moment, then turned the car right around. I was so confused. She said she didn't know what it was.

It was about the size of 10 or more cars. All silver. Had white lights all around its edges. You could see them rotating with the craft. Very slowly directly above the church cross. I had no idea what it was. We drove straight home.

Mom asked me to go tell my father what we had seen. I had no clue. So I went to the kitchen and grabbed two cereal bowls put them rim to rim. Told them about the lights and how it was so still but turning. He said it was a UFO. They were not sure what it was. He also told me it wouldn't hurt me. I had nightmares for months.

I was hoping by sharing this story others will come forward.  Someone else had to see this.

My buddy who is nervous to be named in this small community took this photo with his cell phone and emailed it to me. I personally did not see this but he swears this is true. I could have him call you I think if you want to speak to him. He noticed this only after taking pix of the deer which is seen in the foreground. I would NEVER hoax anyone. We are professionally employed and we think this is really unusual. Photo is attached. It was taken on a cell phone so the resolution is not great.

UFO*BC Responds:

Thanks for the photo!

After looking at it, as you mentioned the resolution is very poor. So we can only go on the visual cues to determine what it may be we are looking at in the photo. Given that he didn't see it himself at the time (a good indication that it wasn't just hanging there) I would have to wager that we are seeing a bird heading across the frame and mid-flap. It could be a bug, but the level of blur and lighting suggests something 50 feet from the camera (give or take). So although I cannot say for sure, I would have to guess bird. But great photo of a doe!

I was working in the back yard, a semi-rural setting, and my wife and her friend were present.  I sat down on a chair in the shade and was talking with Alene about birds and my birding skills, when a Turkey Vulture came into view overhead, and was soaring on a thermal, doing a straight shot past us, and over the house.  We were both looking at this bird, when we both saw a glint in the clear blue sky, very distant. I commented that it looked like a star, perhaps I said a day viewing of the ISS?  I asked her to keep an eye on it, as it was approaching us, from the NNE, while I went to retrieve the binoculars. I came out and found the shining light, and with optical aid, saw a pulsing, more intense, less intense light (white to orangy, sodium vapour-like light) emanating from what?  The path seemed to slow for this anomaly.  My wife went in to get the 20X birding scope with tripod, and I set this up, as they took turns with the binoculars.

When I finally got the object in view, I couldn't believe my eyes. It was definitely emitting light, there were 2 lights, sometimes 3. The object was silverfish, platelike (no discernable wing-tips, rough edges), oval and appeared to be flipping continuously. (sometimes the 2 lights were horizontal, then immediately turning to vertical, then back). We took turns with the scope.  None of us could explain what we were seeing.

The first of 2 Air Canada jets went by, almost due west  My best guess at the altitude of the passing was 20-25 thousand feet, as I could see the fuselage colour of Air Canada plane (blueish-gray). Using this as a reference, I stared as the lines of travel intersected, and could see that the object was much further distant (30-40 thousand feet).

Object now slowed and changed direction, heading NNW, about 80 degrees of travel directional change. It seemed to linger a spell. We were describing location with referencing the tree top from next door. My wife went to call the air tower at our local air force base, and was told, they had nothing in the air at this time. Second Air Canada flight now passing same height as previous, approximately same direction. Did either of these flights see this thing on their radars?  Was there any reports by them or their passengers, being much closer?

We watched this object retreat to the NNW, for the next 10-15 minutes, the lights still doing the flipping thing, now only visible in the scope.  And then it was gone. A full 45 minute of unexplainable, unobstructed, star-like light, from an oval shape, multi-directional travel, in a clear blue sky, by 3 adults on a sunny day in June. Wow!

I was watching the Canada Day fireworks last night with my boyfriend from a friend's place in North Vancouver, At the end of the fireworks, at about 11:00 pm) there was a lot of smoke in the sky and two very bright red orbs, the colour of the red fireworks, suddenly appeared just right of all the smoke in the sky. They were very close together but it was clear there were 2 red lights, not one, yet they both moved in unison. They first appeared on the right side of the smoke in the sky then shot out in a horizontal line away from the smoke then back in towards the smoke in a very direct and quick fashion then suddenly dropped down towards the ocean in more of a curved fashion than a straight line, but on about a 45 degree angle to the right. Then it disappeared. My boyfriend and I both noticed it and have definitely never seen anything like it before. It was clearly not part of the fireworks and it was definitely not an aircraft.

I wonder if anyone else saw this? Was it a drone? Or something else? The red lights were relatively large in size compared to the firworks we had just seen. So I can't imagine it was a Chinese lantern or someone playing around with laser pointers. Thanks!

I was out on the back deck at our farm (48th avenue and 152 street) and I thought I could see some strange lights as if they were in a row but spaced apart in the shape of a crescent shape ! I called my boy friend to come see and he freaked out, there was about 5 lights that we could see and I went to get my phone and as soon as I went to take a picture the lights went out, we stayed outside and right after I put my phone down is was like they were turned on by a lights twitch it was like Boom! Lights back on but this time there was 7 not 5! So we are just staring off in to these lights ! Can't believe what we are seeing. I'm calling my mom to go look outside and she couldn't see anything! The lights stayed in the same area never a different area some times they went side to side or up and down but never left that area, then I came in and my boy friend screamed for me to come see and the lights were gone but there was a bright green light beam across the sky! Then there was 2 of them! Then they vanished! Then they would come back but there would be 4 and they started strobing!!! Nothing I have ever seen before!

I was on the Locarno Beach yesterday around 2 pm, enjoying the sun and browsing the sky to find flying birds. I saw an airplane passing just over my location, heading west. It seemed whitish at that altitude. Right after the plane I noticed a small, round and dark object flying at the same speed to west but probably in a higher altitude. I followed it for 7-8 seconds until clouds concealed my sight. I am mildly myopic and wear prescribed and ultimately dark sunglasses but my vision is 20/20 when armed. I enjoyed the whole afternoon watching eagles, seagulls, ravens and even small swallows flying very high in the sky.

This mail is just a curiosity to know about a light that we saw yesterday early morning at 2:30 am. Yesterday while travelling through Fraser highway in BC near 96 avenue, we saw a blurred image of blue lights. At first it was not clear; later this began to increase and it formed a semi circle and later this light changed to fluroscent green and then to light red still in the shape of a half-circle.

We have taken some photos in our mobile, as we were travelling in the car we were not able to stop the car immediately to take the perfect picture, hence the fotos are not that clear. Hereby with this mail I'm attaching you those photos. Could you please check and let us know what these lights are?

If you were travelling northwest on Fraser Hwy, near 96th Avenue, you would be facing directly towards Holland Park, which was hosting a concert on July 2nd and 3rd. Possibly they had coloured spot lights operating? We are trying to get confirmation of that.

I wanted to get my sighting report on your website. On monday July 4 at around 1:30 am I saw what appeared to be a blue crown shape in the skies above Vancouver BC. I live in Surrey, and it appeared to be above North Vancouver somewhere. I know someone else must have seen this as it was huge and you just couldn't miss it. I didn't take any videos,  but I saw a video on YouTube that someone by the name of Phil Can managed to capture. She lives in Guildford.I know this is what I saw but I haven't found any other reports on it, have you recieved anything on this? Check the video out at

On our website we have posted a couple of photographs taken on July 3rd. We believe the lights shown may have something to do with a concert taking place in Holland Park in Surrey. Does this photo look like what you saw?

Yes that's exactly what I saw. I thought it could be spotlights from a concert but I wasn't sure.

Myself and my husband were having dinner at a couple's house.  We walked towards their living room window while they were in the kitchen cooking dinner.  We saw a bright light shining down.  We looked up and saw a  large circular shaped ("flying saucer" type) object in the sky with blinking red and white lights as though the object were rotating.  There was a beam of light coming from the bottom on the object as well.  The light was so bright, it was lighting up all the trees and everything around.  It was flying very low.  We were alarmed and back away quickly from the window. The object disappeared very quickly a few seconds later. We decided to not mention this to the couple in the kitchen as we didn't think they would believe us.

My boyfriend and I were still up on New Years Day 2016 somewhere between 1:15 and 3:00AM. He was in the bedroom changing and I went onto my balcony which overlooks the ocean and downtown Vancouver.  High in the sky I saw a bright flashing light that seemed to be a circular shape. At first I thought maybe it was just a plane. Then the object started moving around erratically all over the place. It could not have been a plane or helicopter.  I pulled out my iphone and got a short video of it. If I zoom in on the video, I can see the bright light flashing and moving around erratically very clearly. If I can figure out how to edit the video so that it is zoomed in, I would love to submit it. In the video (without zooming in) you can still see a tiny light moving erratically in the sky, but it looks so small on video compared to what I saw with my naked eye. I recently looked on Youtube and it looks like someone else saw 2 UFO's on January 1, 2016 in Vancouver as well (during daylight). He video recorded it and put it on Youtube. The UFO's on his video look like the one I saw a few hours earlier when it was still dark.

1997/1998, Burnaby, BC:


I have had a similar sighting to a craft just like this (see report "2-Jun-2016, Vancouver, BC: (8:30 pm)".  I can't remember exactly when this occurred but maybe 1997/98? What happened was that I went to use the ATM at the Canada Trust located across the street from Brentwood Mall. I was with my girlfriend and I can't remember why we had to go there at the time (it was approx. between 7:30pm - 8:15pm). I was waiting outside facing eastbound looking towards Brentwood Mall as my girlfriend was in the Canada Trust using the ATM. It was dark but wasn't raining and as I was standing there, I heard what sounded like wind or the air moving across a surface that seemed to be located approx. 50-60 ft. above street level. I looked up and saw what I thought was small airplane like a Cessna or something but it was COMPLETELY black or at least a dark colour and there was NO SOUND. The only sound was from the air or wind that was moving across this mysterious object's surface(s). It was moving northbound just casually flying, "moving", what ever the term is for these anomolous craft over Brentwood Mall. It moved along and out of sight as I was left standing there scratching my head. My girlfriend came out of the bank and I didn't mention it and we just went to the car. I wouldn't have ever noticed that it was there if I didn't hear what I construed was the sound of wind moving. When my eyes adjusted and saw what it was because it was dark my first impression was that it was a small plane due to the shape and size of it but in the dark I could tell that it was tapered toward the end like a plane but it was never thought of like being a disk or cigar-shaped UFO.

This was the start of many UFOs that I have seen in Burnaby. I just don't know why they are attracted to Burnaby but I live across the street from BCIT and they have big radio dishes there so methinks that might be why.

But then again, UFOs are everywhere. :)

My friend Dawson, my aunt barb and I were watching the meteor shower last night, a very very bright orange then green star like object fell through the sky. A couple minutes later we noticed what looked like a star but brighter flew out from behind the trees. It was flying in a very strange manner doing a couple circles around and going up and down repeatedly for around 30 minutes.  All of the sudden, another star like object came out of no where and flew up very very quickly right up next to the other one. With no flashing lights, no noises and the odd flying manner we thought there was no way it could have been a plane or satellite. After a few seconds of them doing circles next to each other one of the objects hovered off across the sky slowly while the other one disappeared into no where. We would love to hear your professional opinion.

1-Aug-2016, Vancouver, BC: (about midnight)

I was walking my girlfriend's 15 year old husky late at night in a Vancouver neighborhood that I've visited numerous times, but I wouldn't say I'm overly familiar with the area. It was about midnight on the evening of August 1st, 2016. The dog and I had been walking around the immediate neighborhood for about half an hour, and the route I was currently taking (west along 48th) brought us to the entrance of a trail at the corner of Alma and 48th that both the dog and I have walked through several times previously. But since it was midnight, and the trail was pitch black, I started to go north on Alma instead. The dog didn't care that it was pitch black and wanted to go onto the trail. The black arrow on the attached Google Street View image indicates where she was located while at the end of her retractable leash. We were having a standoff. The dog, being a typical husky, was being stubborn. We were in no hurry, so I was giving her a couple of minutes to come around to my way of thinking. I was about 20 feet north of the hound looking south towards her.

All of a sudden a very bright red light appeared in the sky just a bit to my left. It was moving very fast towards the west. At first I thought it was a shooting star, but I quickly ruled that out. It wasn't moving in a straight line, it changed it's speed slightly as it swerved, and the light had a very distinct outline or edge to it. What I mean by that is that the light didn't appear distant and/or "fuzzy". Although I was looking in the general direction of the airport, there was nothing to indicate this was anything like a plane in the distance. If I had to guess, I'd say it was maybe 100 feet away and perhaps an inch in diameter. (But yes, it is possible it was a larger object further away.) It was deep red, and it was bright, but it wasn't actually casting any light. In other words, it was very easy to spot, but it wasn't illuminating anything with its own light. I only saw it for maybe one second, two seconds max, before the light went completely out... just before it would've disappeared from view behind the trees. The area was very quiet, there was no wind, (no cloud cover either that I recall), and no sound was produced by whatever it was that I saw. There was no evidence of fireworks or flares. I'm 60 years of age, and have never previously witnessed anything like this. It was very strange.


PS. I was completely sober, and my vision is good. The dog didn't appear to notice anything, but she is 15 years of age!

It first looked like silver glint coming right toward me high in the sky like a vertical oval then I watched it start dropping toward the hills. It appeared to have changed direction and the shape changed. I took 2 pictures but I cannot see the object in the pictures even though I could see it with my eyes. I grabbed the binoculars and it looked like one of those safe lawn darts falling but dazzling white and no middle piece. It moved at a steady pace downward and dropped behind the hills. I have been coming to the Okanagan for 40 years and I have never seen anything like it.

My family and I see this every night. It is always in the southern part of the sky. What caught our attention was the large orange glow which appears to be the front of this craft. The orange light can be seen slowly turn right and left up and down but as my son pointed out behind this orange ball there is another one quite a distance away. They seem to move with each other and with closer and a long time watching you can see two other glows but more starish but again move with the others. We think it's one giant ship because it moves like a boat. The night we saw a commercial plane fly behind the light confirmed that these illumination's are in the sky not atmosphere or space. I've taken several pictures but to be honest it can't be seen the same as with your eye.

My mother and I were at "Vernon Secondary School" in Vernon, BC Aug 6 2016, we were in the school field watching the thunder and lighting that was taking place and I said to my mother "look at that! is that a planet or something ?? ". It was a large orange orb looking thing about the size of ....half a full moon i'd say, and we thought nothing of it just that it looked really pretty orange colour and that it was a possible planet or something, then around 10:30 pm about 10-15 mins after we noticed the orange orb, the big orange orb started to move up then down at a slow pace, then as it went back up it kind of shot up and blinked in and out almost like an electrical short out, the orange orb turned into two small white lights that were sporadically moving around and making the same short out spark then shot up and was gone and we stood there and looked for about a half an hour after to see if we would see anything again but there was nothing. I did not get any photos as we were quite excited and overwhelmed, not knowing what we were seeing but I wish I had!

I was on the roof of our RV and we had just watched the full moon rise not too long beforehand. I was thinking of of all the constellation's and I noticed a bright star then as I stared longer a humming sound and movement occurred. I watched longer to ensure actual movement and called to my partner. It continued, he couldn't see it but it's there.

My husband and I frequent this beach on a regular basis. Late night walks are great because we have a dog and it allows him some freedom from always being on leash when there are crowds of people. As we were walking down the beach heading north/west I happen to look up and see a very large, extremely bright red light in the sky. My husband's first guess was a helicopter. For a minute or so we weren't completely focused on it having already decided what it was but it soon again grabbed our attention. We noticed that it looked as if it was standing still but was actually heading directly toward us. What at first seemed to be one red light was actually three in a triangle formation bright enough that the halo from the light made it appear as one from a distance. There were no other lights at all, no anticollision lights, no flashing lights at all. No other colours. No noise. We are relatively close to several airports including one major one and as we were watching a commercial airliner flew below and in front of this object. In comparison the plane was a grain of rice. The object continued in the same direction for maybe three minutes and then moved 90° sideways like a backwards, laying down "L". Within 30 seconds of this direction change it covered a massive amount of space and suddenly shrunk from a massive red object to literally what seemed like a pinpoint and was gone. There was no sound. We could hear the planes. It was not a plane. We live in whalley, we see helicopters all the time, night and day. It was not a helicopter. We are familiar with drones, this was massive. To have the spread of the three lights so clear at such a high altitude way above the planes it has to have been the size of a football field. We thought Japanese lantern but this was completely in control of its movements. Not a lantern. We literally stood there for at least an hour after watching all other air traffic and it did not even come close. This was really hard to put into words as it was something beyond what I can describe properly. It was difficult to wrap my brain around what I was seeing/had seen. Also it was a completely cloud free, clear nighttime sky.

Hi I saw your website and thought I would share this with you.

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013 - I reported this to "As It Happens" and they played it on their program.

At 11 pm, I took the dog out for a last walk.

I should tell you I live on a cul de sac that is an off shoot of a very long dead end street in north Vancouver. This offshoot is a good mile away from any type of busy road, and it was DEAD quiet.

At first I heard a rushing, roaring sound, like wind blowing over a large open jar. Then a sound like two blocks of wood being clacked and popped together. That changed into the sound of metal tinkling together - like someone with a large handful of cultlery that they were passing back and forth, hand to hand. Finally, there was this very spooky low, low sound of some type of trumpet of oboe. Actually it sounded very much like the sound of the machines in Tom Cruise's War of the Worlds.

Each separate sound lasted about 5-10 seconds before a new sound started. This series of sounds repeated in the same order for 4 or 5 rotations. At that point I got very scared and ran into the house.

A friend was out on her deck about 1/2 - 3/4 of a mile away (as the crow flies) and said she and her husband were sitting out on their deck before bed at that time and thought they heard what they thought was soft fireworks from the PNE over the water. There were NO fireworks that night.

I have since listened to websites where people have recorded what they call "Gabriel's Horn" - a phenomenon heard around the world at that time (I had never heard of it when I had my experience). And the final sound I heard was a soft version of that.

23-Aug-2016, East Vancouver, BC: (9 pm)

I saw a light in the sky bobbing up and down over Grandview Highway and Skeena, dipping up and down moving faster than any plane of helicopter could. It was changing colours green and than red, then disappearing entirely. It could bob side to side and up and down. It was moving above my neighbourhood. (Searching) I was scared it was coming for me since I am a highly sensitive person. So I booted it to Walmart. It started to kind of follow me. But then went to the right. And kept going. Its colours were best described as light green. Not the kind you would find on a plane. Also Its lights were covering the whole... orb? craft. I don't know. Tell me if you saw it too.

June 1970, Vancouver, BC: (3 am)

My girlfriend works late at a Vancouver resturant so I would drive from Surrey to Van to pick her up. We were driving past Simon Fraser university on the hwy 1 when I looked out my drivers window up toward SFU. There was a very bright light sitting in one position over SFU, I said to Sandy "look they have a helicopter out with a search light" as Sandy bent to look out my drivers door window the light shot east at such a speed we were able to see the light out of the middle of the front windshield, at that point it went south across the sky in front of us to a point out of sight in a second. The speed at which it traveled was equal to the speed of the light over the Temple Mound in Isreal. This was June 1970.

On Aug 18/16 I was watching the sky for the meteorite showers. Due west I saw a very bright light (4xbrighter than the stars) moving at a very steady slow speed across the sky. It was heading south with no noise, Port Alice is a very small quiet town and there was no town noise to interfere. As this light traveled slowly south the light seemed to be non directional like a globe. As I was viewing this light through my Pentax 7x50 field binoculars looking for the signature of an airplane with it's flashing red/green lights running lights of which there was no sign. I followed it with the binoculars listening for a sound of which there was nothing for about a half a minute the light shut off, not behind anything just shut off and no trace of it after.

25-Aug-2016, Ucluelet, BC: (10 pm)

While camping this week in Ucluelet I witnessed and photographed something I am unsure of. Around 9:55pm I headed to the small beach that the walk-in campsites back onto with a tripod on digital camera to capture some long exposures of the Milky Way. After roughly 5 minutes while I was taking a photo looking roughly South towards the Milky Way, I noticed to my right a bright light. The light was roughly SW, maybe 1 mile away, and appeared quite bright. It looked as thought it was not quite on the horizon and the light seemed to dance and be the same color as a campfire seen from a distance. I realized that the reflection of this light off the ocean was quite bright and noticeable, however I did not hear anyone on the beach mention it aloud from the position I was in. There were at least 3 groups of people having beach fires and the light was very noticeable but perhaps not so much when visiting w/ friends around a fire. In any case I found it odd. The light was brilliant and slightly dancing for maybe half a minute to 1 minute in duration and then suddenly it was no longer there. As I took another long exposure photo it came on again in the exact same position. I do not recall the duration but it was not as brilliant this time but did come on abruptly and turn off abruptly. After this I turned my camera and tripod and set up to capture the light if it came on again, which it did. I have 2 exposures at 30seconds of this light. The first exposure captured the light for nearly the entire exposure if not all of it (30secs) and the light was brilliant and shimmery for the duration and simply turned off. The second exposure of 30secs captured maybe 10seconds of it at the start of the shot and it seemed to have lost it's brilliance and the light kind of swayed and flickered much like a campfire flame would, kind of dying out within 2seconds. I have not real way of telling how far away the light is but when I zoom into the photo it appears, as I had suspected, to be above the horizon line of the ocean. I would guesstimate that with the perceived distance it must have been at least 30-50 feet above the water. I also took a 30second exposure of the area without the light and could not determine if there was a boat in the area and I do not think this was a buoy, although there does appear to be something on the water in the immediate area where the light was but it is difficult to make out what it may be, if anything. During the day there is no discernible water marker in the area. The skies were probably the clearest I have ever seen in the area and in the photo there is a visible layer of water vapor on top of the water which the light is clearly above.

I have RAW format image files for inspection if required and I can also provide a rough mock up on Google satellite of my position. I am hoping there is some rational explanation for what this might have been. I did not time the intervals between the light being on, however it did not seem to follow a particular pattern. Of the 4 times the light came on it ceased to come on in any regularity after my last exposure. I waited another 10 minutes and headed back to camp amazed at the lack of light pollution that night, as well as feeling very curious as to what I may have captured on my camera.

2013 Summer, Chehalis, BC: (10 pm)

I was driving home around 10:00pm after visiting with my family. It was during the summer months, so the night skies were crystal clear. I was heading north on Sachem Rd and I saw a pure white glowing orb floating /flying slowly towards me.  It was as high as the Douglas Firs and about 3/4 of a soccer field away.  This was very unusual as we are a semi remote community, and it's very quiet around here. I got out of my car and watched it move closer.  There was no noise. By now it was about a 1/2 soccer field away and it flew slowly in a straight line. Suddenly the light just went out, like switch was turned off.  I continued to look in the same spot and there was absolutely nothing there, just blackness and there was no sound at all. It seemed as though "they seen me... see them."  I got scared and jumped in my car and drove home, which is about a 2 minute drive.  I thought it might have been a drone and looked for images and could not see anything that resembled what I saw.  Has anyone else seen anything like this? 
Thank you

My wife and I were walking at the park near our home in Richmond after dinner under a cloudy sky at around 9:30 on Aug 28, 2016.  I saw some white illuminating objects moving around the cloud and my wife confirmed she could also see them.  Shape is round like a coin and there were 3 of them chasing one another in a circle clockwise constantly and arrived at the same position of the cloud about every 5 seconds.  The objects did not appear on any part of the clear sky and it would not move to another cloud.  We stood there and watched for about 10 minutes. There were planes travelling occasionally and the moving speed is at least 10 times faster than the planes.  We went home and got our son out to watch 10 minutes later. We stared at the cloud and we saw some vertical light moving from right to left and we know the moving objects still  exist as the light also appeared before. We finally saw them again at another cloud further north with exactly same number of objects, same shape and movement.  We tried taking pictures with our phone, but failed due to the very small contrast.  We stood there and watched for another 10 minutes as the moving objects became less and less visible in the cloud.  This is the first time that we saw UFOs and it was so real that all three of us would not have any doubt at all.

Nov 1996, Mitt Lake, BC:

I thought I'd share this UFO photo with you, since actual convincing photos such as this are quite rare. 
this photo taken looking West across Mitt Lake , maybe 20 miles West of Quesnel BC, shown to me recently by a long time Quesnel resident who wishes to remain anonymous.

Witness related to me he had difficulty gauging how far away he was from the saucer, it hovered stationary for several minutes then would suddenly streak to a new position with unbelievable speed then hover stationary at that position for several minutes, all with no sound what so ever. The saucer hovered and changed position for about 30 minutes after the witness first sighted it, then finally shot with blinding speed out of sight over horizon in a Westerly direction from Mitt Lake. The witness stated his the whole sighting lasted approx. 30 minutes.

I was shown other photos by the witness that were taken in area West of Quesnel previous to this saucer sighting, 1 photo appearing convincingly authentic, showing a fleet of 3 saucers hovering at low altitude at various distances from the witness camera, over a snow covered clearing with trees in background.

I was outside having a smoke on the porch in the backyard. Then I heard two owls hooting, it sounded like they were circling each other, flying around the ceder trees. I try to look around but don't spot them. Later I checked the time and realized 2 hours had passed.

Then I kept thinking something. Don't look down. You won't like what you'll see. DON'T look down! So I think huh, I'm gonna look down. Then I saw a grey alien below the porch. Black eyes, no ears, slits for nose, slit mouth, & very thin. The alien was holding this amber light towards me. I was shocked. No thoughts entered my mind. I couldn't think. We stared at each other for a few seconds. In those few seconds, it immediately lowered it's arm to it's side. What I can't get over is the way it disappeared. There was this sort of cloud and could only see this on it's body. After the cloud covered part of it's body, those parts were becoming transparent, see through. I immediately look up, I don't want to see the alien disappear completely. I start to panic inside my head. I wanted to run in the house and go in my bedroom and hide. But I tried to calm down and instead decided to walk calmly into the house. I rushed in my room and locked the door and hid under the covers. When I tried to go sleep, I heard only one owl outside from my room. Flying around the area of houses.

Months earlier my room mate told me his story how he thinks he was abducted by aliens and they put something under his skin (the incident happened years ago). I don't think they were after me. I think they may have been trying to get at him again. But it's just speculation. Before I saw the alien I always had a secret fear of seeing alien on the stairs and looking at me through the patio door while sitting in the smoke room.

And no one believes me. This happened months before I moved to another town.

At around 5:00pm on Sunday, September 18, 2016, I witnessed a very bright point of light in the sky due north of where I was sitting at a picnic table behind McGill Library, Burnaby, on the north side. From my point of view, it was above Cypress Mountain... but in distance seemed outside of the atmosphere. It was like the brightest star you may see in the night sky, but much brighter than that, in broad daylight. It remained in the exact same position in the sky for approximately 20 minutes. It was not an airplane which have flashing lights and either leave jet trails or detectable movement and sound. The light dimmed and brightened at very random intervals. I considered that it could be a rotating satellite in geo-synchrous orbit. However, the varying degrees of brightness of this object at random times completely contradicted this theory. As well, it did not relate to any geo-synchronous orbit that would correspond this particular position in the sky. At times it was brighter than any planet or the brightest star in the night sky... once again this was broad daylight. I pointed out this object to passersby including a group of Italians playing bacci ball very nearby me who are regular in this area. Most people found it interesting but then dismissed it shortly. At approximately 5:20pm the object flashed very bright 4 times and then disappeared. I was able to record a short amount of video of it's position in the sky but didn't record times of its extreme brightness, due to error in thinking I was recording on my camera phone at the time but was not. My battery was also very low and when I realized my mistake I waiting for a more spectaular display worthy of record, however it vanished at 5:20pm. This object was not an aircraft or a satellite.  The levels of brightness and how random it was suggests otherwise.

I relay this information to you in complete truth and sincerity.

Over the sea, just off Kye Bay. This was a UFO, simply because we couldn't identify what it was. It looked like the headlights of a plane coming towards us to start with, but then they became bigger and it was one big light with irregular streaks coming off it. We watched it and it didn't move, just hovered there with the light reflecting over  the water all the way to the beach. We turned away to look in the other direction, just for a couple of seconds and when we looked for it again, it was gone without a trace. There was nothing to see in the sky, no plane, no helicopter, lights, nothing. It was strange and I am hoping that someone else in the area saw it and can tell us what it was.

Taking the dog out for a walk at Topaz Park in Victoria BC and just saw a UFO. Triangular. A perfect equilateral triangle. About 1000 feet estimated altitude. 3 equally spaced apart amber coloured lights on the bottom. Flew NE or NNE almost right right over top the park facing Finlayson Street. Very fast speed estimated 300-450 km/hr. Approximate "wingspan" was about that of a DH3 seaplane (that we have fly over head daily). Completely silent. Called Victoria Police to report it. I saw it for about 30 seconds before I lost sight of it behind trees/houses. I was wearing velcro gloves at the time I was playing fetch with my dog so by the time I took out my phone, threw my glove, slid my camera open and slid to video mode to record a video it was nearly gone behind the houses and I only got 3 seconds of black sky. I'm literally still freaking out and can't believe I'm even writing this post. I'm also a marine engineer in the Navy posted to CFB Esquimalt. I know what I saw. And I have never in my life seen anything like that before. Saw it at 01:31 and was on the line with the local police by 01:35.

I was outside on my deck in White Rock watching the Perseid meteor shower and was sitting with my head on the back of our deck lounge looking straight up watching for meteors. All of a sudden there was a bright flash between the stars, about twice as bright as the stars around it. I kept watching and a second or two later there was another flash a little further over so I grabbed my binoculars and could see the object between flashes moving very quickly to the south and it looked like it was either tumbling or turning as it moved. The flashing was not a constant pace. It was difficult to tell the exact shape because of the tumbling appearance. I watched it until it disappeared to the south which lasted about 8-10 seconds. I was wondering was this space junk that the sun was reflecting off of as it tumbled or some kind of craft?
