1-Sep-2014, Delta, BC: (12:25 - 12:28 pm)
was on my deck relaxing when I noticed in the northwest sky at about a
45 degree angle from the horizon a small stationary white object. I
could tell it was stationary as the clouds were slowly moving in one
direction in that area of sky but it remained stationary relative to
nearby tree tops and branches. The object had blue sky behind it. It
was too small for me to discern what it was. I called to my partner and
she started watching it too. Total viewing time at this point was
approximately one minute.
went into the house to fetch my camera and tripod. When I came out
after about one minute my partner said that she had watched it slowly
move to the right (northeast) into an area of cloud making it
impossible to see. We kept watching out for it for about another
minute. Suddenly a white object appeared from the edge of the white
cloud background travelling very fast along a horizontal trajectory. At
this point it was about 3 times larger or 3 times closer if it was the
same object. It crossed a 30 degree horizontal arc of the sky in about
5 seconds disappearing behind the trees! The direction of travel was to
the southwest. At the time I uttered to my partner “what the hell is
that?” and managed to snap two photographs. By then it was only about 30 degrees above the horizon. Unfortunately, the camera’s
autofocus focused on the tree tips making the object slightly blurry.
Additional Witness Information:
I think it may had been one of these that I saw and photographed:
I also attached an image. I know engineering companies use these to
obtain aerial views of projects. Maybe they were taking shots of the
new Highway 17 below our place as the object hovered over it for a

pictures from Mars (usually from NASA's website). I've spent many hours
studying said pictures and noting the anomalies I found (and there's a
lot of them).
week, though, I happened to download a (rather large) photo from the
Murray Space Image Centre of The Planetary Society (the seriousness of
that organisation is well established).

formation, what appeared to be a... person. It rapidly
became clear that I was in fact looking at an alien (of the "Grey"

have received only... silence.

fact that the human mind is hardwired to recognize faces, and with
enough stimulus in the form of chaotic rock formations (or clouds,
toast, or chips or anything else for that matter) we will try to “see”
and recognize something therein. In this case, you are seeing a
humanoid shape, where there is nothing more than rocks; just like
seeing faces in the clouds, you are seeing it in rock formations. Truth
be told, it does look like a humanoid figure – sadly it is no more than

May 2014, Kelowna, BC:
was walking the neighborhood around the high school area here in
Kelowna I was about to head home when two individuals let me know that
they had seen a ufo in the sky and I could still see it if I went into
the school field. They stated that there were still other people
watching. When I arrived I did not see anything until two minutes later
when five large circular white/yellow lights appeared overhead in the
east. The lights did not move or anything but stayed stationary and
burned a hole in the clouds making a large gap appear. The lights began
to move away from me growing brighter and begining to blink and
pulsate. They then blinked out and disappeared.
6-Sep-2014, Vancouver, BC: (10:30 PM to 11:45 PM)
noticed what looked like a star at first but noticed alternating,
flickering colours of red and white light. We couldn\'t tell how far
the object was away from us as it hovered in the same spot for the
better part of 30 minutes before slowly moving to our right and out of
view behind a building. We then walked over to the bridge near Crab
Park to resume our viewing and watched again for another 20 minutes as
it slowly seemed to move away from us but was still visible when we
left. It was a clear night so we were able to see other stars for
comparison but I was convinced from the beginning that it was neither a
star, helicopter, plane, or distortion.
7-Sep-2014, Vernon, BC:
bit after eight I notice a large bright white light over a mountain top
by a cell tower. At first I thought it was a planet, but then I
realized that it was flickering. This object contained its own light,
not reflecting it off of the clouds. The object then slowly moved
upward, then turned off, then turned back on and slowly sunk behind the
mountain. It made no sound and didn't have lights like an airplane or
7-Sep-2014, Nanaimo, BC: (8:30 pm and 8:40 pm)
husband and I were sitting on our deck and a bright star like object
very bright in colour and way bigger than a star caught my eye it was
going across very fast heading towards parksville way we must of
watched it for about 45 seconds or so it was not a plane not a shooting
star it made no sound and was faster than any plane I've ever seen we
were very puzzled than about 10 minutes after that the exactly same
object came back towards us from parksville way.like it turned around
than made a crazy maneuver shot up turned a sharp left blinked out a
couple time and completely vanished after that I was pretty shocked
I've seen things in the sky pretty much since I was child but this
scared me to say the least. About Two weeks ago we saw a star like
object big as well blinking out three times and vanishing. Im curious
if anyone else saw this phenomenon at all?? Or has a insight what it
could be? Last night wad also very clear night no clouds either.
Thank-you for the report.
you are describing sounds quite a bit like a military grade jet
performing night time maneuvers - only the problem is, as you
mentioned, no sound. Could have been at a high enough altitude that you
were unable to hear the sound from the craft? From what you are
describing, you only saw a light correct? Did you ever see any
structure behind the light?
option is something called ball lightening - I am not too sure the
conditions nor the observation you made fit, but perhaps...
9-Sep-2014, Vancouver, BC:
1:30am I saw three separate streaks of light that appeared like they
came from the ground towards the sky getting brighter and brighter but
disappeared before completing the arc across the horizon.
I was on the phone as it was happening and the call I was on got
scrambled and made weird noises almost like connecting to the internet
with a dial up modem. Gibberish random noises, then the call dropped
and I lost connection. That's it.
12-Sep-2014, Lumby, BC: (1:00 pm)
was driving to Vernon from Lumby with my sister to do some shopping
right after we had had lunch. It was around 1 in the afternoon, broad
daylight, clear blue skies and suddenly we come around a curve and
there is a perfectly round, glowing, white sphere with two cone like
chem trails coming from the bottom of it. I said to my sister, what is
that in the sky? Is that a jet? WTF is that? She answers with "Pull the
car over!!" We jump out and while I'm looking at it my sister says
"Look, there are two of them!" She's pointing to the mountain and sure
enough just a little higher than the mountain is another one but its
farther away and looks kinda like a tiny sun. We grab our cell phones
and try to take a picture. Of course then it goes a little behind a
tree so then we start jogging down the road to a clearing and take some
photos. We got four pictures but by then it was smaller and we can't
see the same detail as we did in person.. Its very frustrating!!! I
wish I had taken a picture instantly right through the windshield!! but
it was such a weird thing, I have never looked for or even thought of
seeing something like that in my life! It's Hollywood stuff...not going
to the grocery store stuff.

night there was a meteor that was visible to the LowerMainland - and
fits your description and time. It has been on the various media
outlets throughout the day.
Thanks for the keen eye!!
13-Sep-2014, White Rock, BC:
didn't actually see it, but my dad did. He told me that he saw five
orange lights about 1,000 feet in the air. They were shaped like a
stereotypical UFO, and were apparently black or dark grey. They were
moving at the pace an airplane would, but moved like a helicopter. He
said that he could see everyone in their cars looking up at them and
almost crashing, haha. I looked up some keywords of his sighting, and
it actually matches this person's description:
13-Sep-2014, Coquitlam, BC: (9:30 pm)
was working an afternoon shift tonight till 9:00 pm at the cities
animal kennel. I have to walk the dogs starting at 8:00 around a short
loop just in back until all the dogs are walked. Around 8:15 I noticed
a red and green flashing light above the east side of Burke Mountain.
(My work has a clear view of Burke Mountain looking north.) I didn't
see any thing of the light just thought it was an airplane or something.
taking a few dogs out to do their business I noticed the light again
and just kept walking but as I rounded the kennel facing south I
noticed two larger red and green flashing lights and they were in a
parallel line staying in one place. This is when the hair on the back
of my neck started to stand. I really thought I was starting to see
things but after looking at it for a minute I realized it was real.
These lights were much larger and brighter than any stars and I had not
seen those there earlier in the night. So I rounded back and took
another dog and the lights are still there, so I go take another dog
and now I only see the light that was on the left and I keep walking
south and all of a sudden I see the light zig-zag horizontally but
going vertically. Very fast it zig-zagged maybe 7-10 times and then
shot to the right of me (west). This is where I started to "shit
bricks" I really did not know of what to think of it?
Thats why I posted my story here so i could possibly get an answer!
PS, I was not high or drunk since I was working, drugs are illegal, and I'm not old enough to drink.
Hi Thomas, thanks for your report.
to what it could have been? Without seeing it ourselves, there is
always the looming fact we just do not know. It could have been the
lights from a small aircraft doing evening flying and you happened to
be seeing it at various angles (coming towards you, away from you, etc)
and gave the appearance of a more abrupt flight path than it actually
However, I cannot say anything for sure - if you see it again, let us know!
14-Sep-2014, Vancouver, BC: (10 pm)
live in east vacouver - at 10 pm tonight I was walking my dog and
noticed a green and red light in the sky at airplane altitude heading
south. I though "boy that airplane is going fast!". Then it stopped
dead. It stayed still for about five seconds then started moving east
at a slower speed. Then it stopped again, hovered for a moment, and
then moved north at a high speed, but at a lower altitude so that it
disappeared over the mountains. The lights were quite large and bright,
so whatever it was would have had to have had a substantial size.
Another man on the street saw it too, but shrugged it off as being a
drone. This was far too big and high up to be a drone. And it was
15-Sep-2014, Vernon, BC: (8 pm)
is not a bigfoot or ghost sighting - but a UFO! Near Kin Beach in
Vernon, BC. I took my dog for a swim on the Okanagan waters. There was
four of us, just playing fetch with the dog until we took interest in
these 2 parallel running bright orange lights in the sky. We observed
them moving simultaneously in the sky - one on top of the other. And
then one turned into this black circular, opaque object looking thing
and slowly started to descend. We were all wondering… Is this a sky
diver in the night?! Or what the heck! The most bizarre part was when
the orange light now slowly started to descend towards the mountain. It
hovered at the tree line, came down the mountain and back up again,
while moving quite fast. Faster than any human I know!
orange light slowly hovered back up into the sky and then slowly
diminished. Sort of like a flame going out. The other orange light I
talked about initially wasn't far behind. It rose up and sort of did
the same thing. The light just slowly diminished while in the sky.
Weird! I don't know what else it could have been but a UFO. I have a
strong feeling it was. I always wanted to spot one! And look at that!
Thank-you for the report.
A few mundane questions for you:
How high would you say the object was when moving in the sky? At what speed? I am also trying to figure out sizes - you mention a skydiver, so would you think about that size or smaller/bigger? Finally, would you mind drawing us a quick sketch of what you saw? It always helps if we can have a doodle to at least mentally picture the event.
1-Apr-1997, Surrey, BC:
details report: Evening of April 1st, 1997. I was leaving the house to
go out with some friends and was out in the driveway chatting with a
friend of my mothers. They were attending university at that time and
she was just leaving a night of studying with my mother. She wasn't a
friend of mine and I really didn't know her very well. No drugs or
alcohol had been consumed by any of us that evening.
of stars were very visible in the night sky above us. We were
distracted from our conversation when we noticed the stars began to
'twinkle' and 'flash' repeatedly all across the sky. I had never seen
stars go from normal stars to that many flashing stars. We were looking
up and across the sky trying to figure out what was causing this to
happen when something came into view in the sky behind us. We were
looking West and the object traveled East-to-West so it came up from
behind us and overhead. There are certain details about this object
which stand out very clear to me but there are also aspects of this
sighting that I have a hard time remembering, almost as if I dreamed
it. The two of us said to each other numerous times, "You can see this
too, right?". The object was gigantic and seemed to be traveling quite
low and far too slow for any aircraft I had experienced in person. It
was shaped like a wide arrowhead. Not quite an isosceles triangle
because the rear of the craft was curved outwards, not a distinct flat
line. I do not recall any lights on this vessel whatsoever. It was
really only visible by the lights in our driveway and the outline of
the ship against the sky.
do not recall any sound whatsoever coming from the vessel. I have seen
commercial airliners come in to land and the sound is extremely loud
from the engines, this craft had no sound and was too slow and too low
for me to comprehend what I was seeing. As the vessel moved over our
heads continuing West, we could make out vague details of the underside
of the craft. Looked like pipes or channels. At the risk of losing any
credibility, the only remotely accurate way I could describe it would
be to imagine looking up at a "Star Destroyer" ship that is so iconic
with Star Wars fans. (note- I myself am not even a fan of Star Wars, I
had to Google the name of the ship just now.) This is what I mean when
I say I could see dim channeled 'metal work' underneath when I looked
up. I am by no means an expert at deciphering air speed or height of a
moving craft as I have no flight knowledge. I would describe the speed
and distance this way.: 1.) If I were to hold up my hand up over my
face, I would still see the craft on all sides. It would not come close
to fully blocking my vision of it. 2.) As for speed, it would travel
the length of my hand (raised over my head and between my line of sight
and the craft) in approximately 3-5 seconds. As the craft continued
slowly west and was no longer overhead of our property line, the back
of the craft lit up white and it flew high and north before vanishing.
The only thing more astonishing with the 'slow' speed of a flying
object so large and low is how lightening fast it disappeared from our
sight. At the rate it was traveling, we should have been able to see it
for another few minutes at least but it seemed to raise higher and
vanish heading North in under 3 seconds.
a few moments of the object vanishing, the stars began to 'blink'
slower and eventually resumed the standard stars in the night sky which
could be considered normal. The two of us were at a loss for words to
describe what we saw at the time, we went back into the house to tell
my mother and other family members. My mother was surprised to see that
her classmate was even still there (she thought she went home some 10
minutes previous). We both told the same story and were believed for
the most part because we were not 'friends' who would collaborate a
story for a laugh, not to mention an age gap of at least 10 years. A
family member said, "Good luck getting anyone else to believe you
though, it's April Fools Day."
awhile I kept trying to make sense of what I saw and decided to call
the non-emergency police line. (Seems odd to not look up online or on
my phone, but it was 1997. We had internet at the time the internet
wasn't really the 'go-to' place for real-time alerts and posted
updates.) When the operator answered, I told her what we saw and said
"You probably think this is a joke because it's April Fools Day, but it
isn't a joke." She said "We've had a few hundred calls about this in
the last 45 minutes so you aren't the only one." She took down my info
and said someone might contact me for more info but nobody did.
21-Sep-2014, Vancouver, BC: (9:30 am)
morning I was looking out the window from the 21st floor of my friend's
highrise building. I saw 5 or 6 sparkling objects moving from east to
west in tandem. One was ahead and leading the way. They were about
1/10th of the size of an airplane and I know that because 2 or 3
airplanes and/or floatplanes passed by them. As the planes were passing
these objects would hide in the clouds and then come out again when the
planes would pass. I couldn't believe my eyes. I picked up a binocular
and tried to look at them - they appeared as moving objects and were
flashing electric rays similar to a thunder storm - from afar they
looked like sparkling stars. I noticed them with white and orange
flashing lights when they origunally showed up, but the lights then
turned into white only.
1999 or 2000, Surrey, BC:
I read your site when ever you update reports. Today I was reading one of your reports, Reported 16-Sep-2104 (2-Apr-1997, Surrey, BC).
As I read it I was surprised to see the report mentioned star wars type
of surface of the ship reported, and it reminded me of a sighting I had
in 1999 or maybe 2000. I was driving to Kirtland college one morning
about 8 am for a class. As I drove past a farm field on my left
something told me to look and there tucked into the far back corner of
the field was a spherical orb floating about ten feet off the ground. I
would say the field was about forty acres so that would put me about
1/4 mile from it. It was a early fall morning and there was a little
ground fog that hadn't burned off yet. The object was in front of a
pine tree, the tree would be about 60 ft. and the object was about
10ft. off the ground and you could see about 10 or 15 feet of the top
of the tree behind it. What caught my interest was that the sphere had
piping and box shapes on its side. In fact the surface of the sphere
had a textured appearance to it. The strange thing about it is, I have
seen many things in my life and always been curious and study things I
don't understand, but on this occasion I didn't even slow down. This is
not me! I thank you for hearing me out. I have only told this story to
a few people, but like I said this, report brought it back to me.
21-Sep-2014, North Vancouver, BC: (9:05 pm)
was looking out my living room window at the North Shore mountains at
9:05 pm. There was an orange light moving from north to south at about
1000 feet. It caught my eye because of the colour and the fact that
there was no blinking nav lights or strobes as would be seen on an
aircraft. The bottom of the light looked sharp, the top looked fuzzy
(see pic) There was no flickering of the light like a japanese lantern,
it was totally stable in intensity. It was moving faster than the
planes and helicopters I usually see, taking no more than 10 seconds to
travel from beside Grouse Mtn to the point where it suddenly stopped
and hovered for about a minute. I grabbed my camera and got one pic
before it rose straight up at an amazing speed. As it ascended it got
smaller and dimmer quickly until I couldn't see it any more (3-4
seconds). As I watched it disappear I could see a disc shape at what
seemed like 10,000 feet moving from east to west. It became visible at
the exact spot the orange light disappeared. It was grey and just
visible against the night sky. The disc seemed to be travelling at the
speed of an airliner at high altitude (500 mph?) It was soon too faint
to make out against the night sky. As far as size, it looked to be
slightly bigger than a jumbo jet when flying at 30,000 ft.
the years I have seen many things in the sky including the ISS being
chased by the shuttle, comet hale-bopp, helicopters with search lights
on and planes of all descriptions. Never have I seen anything that
looked or flew the way the orange light did.
After May 1980, Port Coquitlam, BC:
was late one night. My wife and I were coming home from Burnaby. We
were going over the red bridge off of Lougheed Highway on Pitt River
Road. Back then it was a wooden bridge with lots of forested areas and
a few clearings. As we cleared the bridge, we had to stop because there
was a major line of cars stopped on the road. People were outside of
their cars looking up. We stopped and got out of the car and looked up
was a MASSIVE dark object above. It must have been half the size of
Port Coquitlam. It was about 100 meters above the tree line. We could
see the outer edge which had windows but could not see into the
windows. There were very bright white lights on the bottom of this UFO
as well. It was completely silent. I would guess we stood there for 5
minutes before the object took off at a tremendous speed toward the
north-east without a sound.
got into their car and left in a hurry. As we got in our car, I
overheard someone mention they were going home to turn on the news
because this was "earth changing" news. I got really excited and took
off home. I turned on the TV thinking this was it. This was first
... sadly nothing on the news. Nothing in the paper the next day. Nothing.
back I wish I got the name and number of a few of the people there.
Looking back (and this is really bad) we had a camera in the car and
did not even think to take a photo. We were so awe struck and figured
this was the end of being alone in the universe that pictures were not
needed. Lesson learned.
29-Sep-2014, Kamloops, BC: (6:16 pm)
silver rod shaped object slowly ascending into the sky over Kamloops,
BC. It was not a plane. Was very shiny silver colour and bright. Was
definitely not an airplane shape. Headed over Kamloops past the highway
towards Barriere, BC. I was on the phone to my husband and said the
weirdest object in the sky is making a slow pass.
2-Oct-2014, Abbotsford, BC: (9:30 pm)
- lots of "low intensity lighted ball" traffic over Fraser Valley. I'm
in Abbotsford and saw the latest last night 930 pm. Flying
northeast to southeast below aircraft about 200 feet. Might want to put
some cameras up, hey ya never know.
Thanks for the tip!
Can you kindly provide a better description of what they look like? Were they following the aircraft, in a similar flightpath?
Richard. They seemed about the size of a truck, but from that distance
tough to gage the diameter. It was ball-shaped and like a dull
lightbulb, almost translucent dull orange. I have had two sightings
this summer and one yesterday. The others were exactly the same
except lit up like a spotlight. All were travelling the NE to SE and
vis versa. Oh ya No sound.
like the Helios or local planes using valley airports. Which I watch
avidly from my southern facing porch. NE of Abbotsford International
not a nut job (although my wife might disagree lol) but have been
familiar with aircraft for most of my life growing up in a military
family. These were not aircraft in the conventional term. Balls of
energy would almost describe it better. Only white and the dull orange
:-) I have also seen several light streaks that seem to be parallel to the border. ?
Hope this helps.
14-Oct-2014, Saanich, BC:
sitting in our hot tub watching for meteorites my girlfriend and I
caught sight of a very dark coloured cylindrical object. It was moving
quickly and silently at an altitude lower than passenger aircraft fly
in this area. This very dark grey object appeared to have 3 evenly
spaced sections which were glowing with a very dim yellowish light. As
we watched. it flew under a small cloud and continued on it's north
south trajectory until it faded from sight in the darkness. I would
estimate it's length to be about the size of a commercial passenger
plane but the body was larger in diameter. It did not have regulation
lights nor did it have any visible appendages such as a tail or wings.
23-Oct-2014, Richmond, BC:
this is Vivian from Richmond. I think i accidentally captured a picture
of UFO on October 23, 2014, at 5:55pm. I wanted to capture a picture of
the eclipse. However, when I looked at the picture 2 hours later , I
saw a white dot that looked like an UFO. I am looking forward to
clarify whether I really captured UFO.
Thank-you for the photo, but what you have caught is known as a ‘Sun Dog’ : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_dog
Not a UFO, but certainly a nice shot!
31-Oct-2014, Williams Lake, BC: (8 pm)
after the fireworks ended about 8 pm my friend and I saw 2 lights that
seemed to move together in one spot for about 2 minutes then gradually
moved farther away until no longer visible. We were looking southeast
from apartment building on Donald Road just above Chevron gas station.
The whole event lasted about 3 minutes.
Thank-you for the report!
made you think it was anything out of the ordinary? For instance, could
it have been 2 airplanes that appeared to be close by, but in reality
were some distance away from one another?
UFO*BC Responds #2:
Given that people were setting off fireworks, it was probably Chinese lanterns.
Just my opinion.
It was not Chinese lanterns and it was not airplanes. I haven't seen lights like this before, it was the movement of them
and speed with which they disappeared. I know how airplanes look in the
sky and how they move. Chinese lanterns would be moving steadily away
not staying in one place.
August 1968, Vancouver, BC:
saucer-shape with large triangular-shaped windows on top. Bottom had a
smaller protusion (dome) and no window. There was symbols written and
lights on outer rim. The windows were lit up brighter than the
daylight. There was a slight drone noise. It had followed my fiance and
I for about six city blocks, it seemed to keep the same distance and
did not appear to move. When we arrived home it was at the same
distance away which was close enough to see in the windows. [could not
see anything] my neighbours [two] came out and witnessed it. I also
called my father who also witnessed it. It hovered for at least five
minutes, moved slowly at first, then it took off so fast it was like it
disappeared. It is funny but only a few times has it been discussed.
This all happened in the bright daylight. This was not at a distance.
This thing was huge and close up. It was a grey steel color. It
appeared to be about 3 city blocks long. This has bothered me for
do not want people thinking I am nuts.
Thank-you for the historical report!
sightings, it is always difficult for us to investigate, as the details
are now a distant memory. However, is there anything else you can add
to your report? I do not want to lead you in any way, so I will hold
off on my questions until later.
Thanks again for the report.
PS Was there any reason/event that made you want to report it now, after all these years?
Richard. It is hard to explain. One reason is I was not believed by
most of those I told. My father [now deceased] was known for his
honesty and would never tell someone a lie. When he told my brothers it
instantly became the truth. This UFO was not at such a distance you had
to guess what it was. It was in your face you could see in the windows,
you could see the lights around the outside as well as writing. It was
huge and it had followed us for at least six blocks. My fiancé and my
neighbours as well as my Dad just stood there saying nothing for at
least two minutes. It took off slow then so fast it almost disappeared.
When the TV started showing UFO files on sightings it started bothering
me, especially with the skeptics. I know what I saw and it was not from
here. I know it was following my wife and I. There is no doubt in my
mind. We were young. It never entered my mind if we were being set up
for an abduction. I am not young anymore - 68 years. I know we are not
alone and I believe the Government knows. I do not believe they are a
threat at least not yet and if we don't do something stupid. I would
welcome any questions you may have.
ps. thank you for answering.....

July 2001, Powell Lake, BC: (4 am)
was on the way to work as a camp cook at Powell Daniels Logging
Company. It was low light conditions, pre-dawn. I looked west up the
lake and saw a large metal ball shape dull silver in color moving
silently north to south. Time in view about 5 seconds at an estimated
elevation of 6000 feet. It crossed over Powell Lake from mountian range
to mountian range - no contrail and no lights seen. Side view appeared
to be round at a distance of about 1mile from me. It was not a plane.
Weird or what??
7-Nov-2014, Surrey, BC (Newton area): (11:30 pm)
Triangle with lights on 2 sides. It was a full moon. There was no
noise. About 1/10th the size of the moon. Moved along the cloudline. It
was above us for about one and a half minutes, then it went into the
clouds and was gone. Because of the shape and that it made no noise, I
am sure this was a UFO.
Witness 2: It
was november 10 and we saw it just down the street from where I live.
It was triangle-shaped and had one line of lights - no sound and moving
really slow. We followed it then it up and disappeared behind some
houses. It was not a plane. We have a sunroof and opened it - there was
no sound at all.
25-Aug-2014, Campbell River, BC:
was visiting my dad and mom in Campbell River and was sitting out on
their back deck having a smoke when I noticed red and green lights far
off in the distance that I assumed was a plane or helicopter. The
lights were sitting above a known helicopter launch pad out on the spit
across from Quadra Island so I didn't give it a second thought until
about 10 minutes had past and it hadn't moved at all, it was hovering
in the same place.
heart began to race as I knew for sure it was not a regular plane or
helicopter. I called my dad out and told him to bring the binoculars.
We both began watching the red and green lights and taking note of
where the moon was to better gage if it was moving at all. An hour
later it was clear that the moon had moved but the lights did not, not
even an inch. Within that time the lights looked to have burned out
several times for about 10-15 seconds at a time only to return again as
quickly as they disappeared. My dad and I concluded there was no way a
known aircraft to earth could have sustained that position for so long
whether for how it was hovering or the fact it would have needed to
re-fuel. My father has had a couple sightings in his life the first
dating back to the early 60's in the Kootneys and again a few years
later in Campbell River of which he snapped a photo of it that
time. It's a grey saucer-like blurb in the photo but was taken in
full daylight with a sky of pure blue. There is no explanation for that
grey blurb having any earthly business in that clear summer sky.
Both my dad and I believe without a doubt we had just experienced and witnessed an object not part of this earth.
August 1968, Vancouver, BC:
saucer shape with large triangular-shaped windows on top. bottem had
smaller no window protruision. There were symbols written and lights on
the outer rim. The windows were lit up brighter than the daylight and
there was a slight droning noise. It had followed my fiance and I for
about six city blocks. It seemed to keep the same distance and did not
appear to move. When we arrived home it was at the same distance away
which was close enough to see in the windows [could not see anything].
My neighbours [two] came out and witnessed it. I also called my father
who also witnessd it. It hovered for at least five minutes then, slowly
at first, then it took off so fast it was like it disappeared. It is
funny but only a few times has it been discussed. this all happened in
the bright daylight. This was not at a distance - this thing was huge
and close up. It was a grey steel colour. It appeared to be about 3
city blocks long. This has bothered me for years. I do not want people
thinking I am nuts.
Thank-you for the historical report!
such sightings, it is always difficult for us to investigate, as the
details are now a distant memory. However, is there anything else you
can add to your report? I do not want to lead you in any way, so I will
hold off on my questions until later.
Thanks again for the report.
PS Was there any reason/event that made you want to report it now, after all
is hard to explain. One reason is that I was not believed by most of
those I told. My father [now deceased] was known for his honesty and
would never tell someone a lie. When he told something to my brothers
it instantly became the truth. This UFO was not at such a distance you
had to guess what it was. It was in your face, you could see in the
windows, you could see the lights around the outside, as well as
writing. It was huge and it had followed us for at least six blocks. My
fiancé and my neighbors as well as my Dad just stood there saying
nothing for at least two minutes. It took off slowly then so fast it
almost disappeared. When the TV started showing UFO files on sightings,
it started bothering me, especially with the skeptics. I know what I
saw and it was not from here. I know it was following my wife and I.
There is know doubt in my mind. We were young. It never entered my mind
if we were being set up for an abduction. I am not young anymore -
68yrs. I know we are not alone and I believe the Government knows. I do
not believe they are a threat, at least not yet, and if we don't
I would welcome any questions you may have.
PS - thank you for answering.....
21-Nov-2014, Vancouver, BC (Yaletown area): (9:45 pm)
our 17th floor Yaletown apartment, we saw a very bright orange light
emerge from tree height at Aquarius Mews and ascended on a steady
diagonal path, towards the West of False Creek until we lost sight as
it went behind other buildings. It was a rainy and windy night, yet the
light was constantly fiery orange, not flicking like a lantern nor
flashing like a plane. There seemed to be a white light at the centre,
a fuzzy border at the top, and made no apparent sound.
23-Nov-2014, Agassiz, BC:
live in Agassiz, BC. Looking east out our back window my wife and I saw
what we can only consider to be a UFO. Flying low over the foothills of
Mount Cheam, just east of Highway 1...a large oval-shaped object with
what appeared like headlights spaced apart in a ring around the saucer.
It kept slowly moving southward over the Bridal Falls area until it
dropped from our view behind some trees. There are people living in
that vicinty and some businesses such as the Ranchers' Restaurant and
Bridal Falls golf course. It did not look like a plane or helicopter.
Thanks for the report.
interesting sighting! Can you estimate the height of the object along
with its size? Perhaps you could guess speed and direction of travel?
Other than the obvious, what made you think that this couldn't be
something common such as a blimp?
Do you think you could draw us a picture and perhaps email it to us?
29-Nov-2014, Victoria, BC: (8:30 tp 9:00 pm)
UFOs - blue and red multi that were aligned and moved in perfect unison
in the sky at a 90 degree angle - bouncing up and down like they were
trying to communicate. Entire neighbourhood watching as they were put
there for 30 minutes. Husband got footage.
it be possible for you to have to the other members of your
neighborhood contact us? Please just give them our email address.
Would love to see the footage - and will await your reply before we ask any further questions.
15-May-2014 Campbell River, BC: (12 pm)
north from deck of house, estimating 20 kms away at an elevation of
7000 feet, possibly over Browns Bay, I observed a bright yellow and
white light for 3 minutes, not moving but pulsating. Then the object
made a very rapid ascent straight up, leaving a cone trail of yellow
light. The end of the tail had yellow sparks which faded out in 4
seconds. Saw no object only light - half the size of a dime. Very
August 2014, Helen Mackenzie Lake, Vancouver Island, BC: (11:00 pm)
was roughly 10 tent pads (all full) at the Helen Mackenzie Lake. I
would say roughly 17+ people in total that were there witnessing the
event. We were all up there to watch the Meteor Showers up in the
alpine. It was a great show going on, lots of comets with long tails.
Then, after I would say an hour and a half through the show (11:00
pm-12:00am),we saw what seemed to be a giant white/orange frosted light
bulb floating above the tree tops and over the lake. It was
moving oddly slow and seemed unreal that it was not dropping out of the
sky. It was fairly large, DEAD QUIET, no running lights or strobe
lights and moved in a wobbly, narrow zig zag pattern in a straight
line. This craft, went right over all our heads and continued out of
site. There were many others who witnessed this, and I even still have
contact info from the people on the tent pad next to us. It was by far
the closest and craziest encounter of an unknown object, I have
encountered in my life.
On a side note, from the same area, I have a picture of a CLEAR
daylight photo of a craft moving very fast. My friend who took it said
he did not see it when he took the picture, but noticed it when he
transferred it from his small camera to his computer. If there is
anyway I can load a photo to this report, I will gladly post it.
I KNOW THEY ARE OUT THERE, I can not say otherwise after that incident.
16-Dec-2014, Nanaimo, BC: (5:53 pm)
5:50pm I saw a triangle-shaped aircraft with two bright white lights
hovering adjacent to the highway. At first I thought it was a small
plane or helicopter until I moved closer to it and then saw it was a
triangle. My car passed almost under the craft. There were hundreds of
other cars near me so other people must have seen this. I was wondering
if anyone else in this area has reported seeing this thing tonight.
24-Dec-2014, Campbell River, BC: (about 6:45 pm)
solid red lights in sky ( I saw 4 before running inside to get husband)
moving slowly to the right and east over the ocean. 3 were in a perfect
triangular formation the 4th had dropped from view by the time I got my
husband outside. Slowly faded from view as they moved east.
28-Dec-2014, Langley, BC: (about 8:30 pm)
night I saw a very strange sight. It was crossing over Langley from NE
to SW and was like a light and orange in color. Almost a firey orange
(like it was on fire). There was something white like a parachute above
that kept going on and off. The speed was slow and there was no
sound. After watching for about 5 minutes it suddenly
disappeared. This was definitely not an aircraft and only the orange
and white colors. I would say it was several hundred feet up.
in the Walnut Grove area myself - I suspect it was a Chinese Lantern,
as I have seen a few of these released lately around here.
They are often mistaken as something strange and abnormal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDfo28qejH4
They are large paper bags, in which the air is heated via a small candle/flame that also gives the orange colour to them.
Thanks for the report!
Summer 1939, Vancouver, BC:
I hope one day to see one [UFO] myself. My mom saw one when she was a kid living in Vancouver in the 30s.
I suspect your mother is no longer with us to recount her story, but
any further details you can provide would be great! Always entertaining
hearing about historical cases!
sadly she passed away in Feb 1995. It took place in the summer of 1939,
morning time. To my best recollection she was 15 at the time and was
playing in the front yard on west 5 Avenue in Kitsilano. The yard faced
south so she was looking south and in her words:
came out from behind the cloud and came at a fast speed toward me. It
stopped above the house across the street, it looked like a tube, a
metallic tube. No sound, no wings, nothing. It was a bit bigger than
the house. I ran inside to get my dad and he said he did not know what
it was. (He worked at Boeing Vancouver so he knew his aircraft.) Then
it left straight up and was gone in a flash. This all happened in about
a 3 minute time period. My dad told me not to tell anyone, so I didn’t."
told me this about five years before she died and said that was the
first time she had talked about it. She never mentioned it again. Even
when she told me the story there was a tone in her voice that said it
still scared her even though she wouldn’t admit it.
I know it is not much, but that is how she remembered it.
Fall of 1994, Sulphurous Lake, BC:
was 11 years old and playing in the back yard of my childhood home,
located along the north side of sulphurous lake. I remember I swung off
our rope swing, landed and turned to go back up the hill. All of a
sudden it was like a strange calm came over and there was no sound at
all. I looked up to the tree line and I saw a huge oval shaped "UFO" it
was moving east to west fairly slowly maybe 20 yards over the tree
tops. The Ufo I would estimate it to be the size of a soccer field in
length. I was paralyzed just in shock being that age and seeing this
thing right in front of me. The craft had no visible windows or seams
on it, it appeared to be seamless with no visible moving parts silver
grey in colour. I saw the thing for only a few seconds it has been in
my mind ever since. I went to elementary school at horse lake
elementary school, I had mentioned what I saw to a few kids in my class
most of them thought I was crazy or making up a story. One of the kids
in my school had witnessed something that looked the same around the
same time in the same area (I sent him a fb request, and plan on asking
him if he remembers what he saw).
1998-1999 around Christmas time Langley BC (willowbrook mall parking
lot) My father and I were just leaving the mall after some Christmas
shopping, it was just getting dark out so evening time. My dad had
looked up in the sky and said "wow, look at the moon" I looked up and
saw a glowing ball in the sky slightly west of our location. I said to
my dad "that's not the moon" the ball I'm not sure how far away but it
seamed to be pretty high up, started changing colours from a grey blue
to green and then orange to red, it was kind of gyrating around kind of
wobbling around that one spot in the sky for maybe 20-30 seconds then
the orange changed to red, the thing broke up into maybe 7-10 smaller
red balls and shot off in pieces to the north so fast it was just a
blur. My dad and I both shocked at what we had just seen asked some
people in the parking lot if they had seen it and they just sort of
looked at us as if we were crazy. The ball/orb looked to be about half
the size of what the moon would look like maybe a bit larger. My dad
and I were swimming at wc Blair pool in Langley a few days later, my
dad was in the steam room talking about what he saw and there was a man
there had seen the same thing on the same night, my dad had come
calling for me in the pool to come talk with the man. The man from the
pool had described the same thing as what we saw that night. I've often
wondered what I saw that night trying to make sense of it. I know back
in those days China beach night club had a spot light they use to use
often, but I have seen that light and I know that what we saw was not a
2011 July 15 10:00 pm to midnight Chilliwack mountian 1km past
chilliwack lake campground on Chilliwack mountian road. My girlfriend's
sister and some of her friends were camping out at the lake for a few
days, we were living in Sardis so we had gone up to visit them one one
night, we stayed out there till maybe 11pm before driving back into
town. When we left that night, driving back towards Chilliwack near
thurston meadows we saw a light flash over the top of our car and our
car radio went fuzzy for a split second. It was only a split second
that we saw the light. Around that time we had seen a lot of army
activities in the area. I had witnessed on more than one occasion army
personnel on that road and up in those mountains with armoured vehicles
and these guys were packing some heavy weapons with them. My girlfriend
and I were talking to our friend in Chilliwack the next day, we figured
that they were up to something out there, so we decided to go out to
the mountain that night. We had posted up alongside the mountain road
laying down blankets and looking up. It was a clear night with not a
cloud in the sky. We sat there for some time not seeing much a couple
of satellites passed by, that was about it.
friend looked up and spotted the first one, it looked about the size of
a star and about the same brightness as an average star, not as big and
bright as a satellite. The ball moved north to south then spun around
in a circle a couple of times and headed east, it would travel 30-45
degrees across the sky spinning in a couple circles and then take off
in a right angle to its last trajectory sometimes speeding up and then
slowing down. Then another one of these balls came into view and
another one and so on. We counted at least five different balls in the
sky at the same time that night and the three of us had watched them
fly around the sky for two hours. Mostly flying the same way as the
first one, going in one direction then spinning a couple circles and
turning at a right angle, but not always the same. I had seen one going
across the sky almost like it was a bouncy ball bouncing along an
imaginary line in the sky. All of these balls were very high in the
sky. They would go fast and then slow down then speed up again, it was
almost as if they were playing a game or in battle or something. We
were all freaking out saying "What the heck is that? What are those
things?" after about two hours they had all disappeared. My friend and
I both tried to take pics but I only had my old razor phone and he had
his old Nokia flip phone, the balls were too far away to get a pic
without a good quality camera. We had returned to the same area the
next night with my girlfriends whole family and didn't see anything. I
have no explanation for what we saw that night.
24-Dec-2014, Kaslo, BC:
I was wanting to contact you because I caught a picture of 4 possible
UFO's drifting over Kaslo. This photo was taken on my smartphone. I put
a filter on the 2nd one to better show you the lights we saw that night.
So the story is, I was sitting at a stop sign with my friend in his
truck and as I looked out the passenger window I saw a glare of reddish
light. I thought it might have been a street lamp but when I looked for
the source I realized it was in the sky. My friend gave out a nervous
"woah" as we jumped out of the truck. Heads looking up in the sky I
counted 5 UFOs that had a red glow like a lantern yet big and bright.
It was easy to pick out in the clear sky that night. As we observed the
UFOs they seem to move very slowly almost drifting through the sky.
After was seemed like 10 seconds the lights swooped into more of a line
to the right of us over the mountain. We stepped back into the truck
not actually sure what we saw. I decided it was good old Santa visiting
us on Christmas Eve. In all seriousness though has anyone seen lights
like red Chinese lanterns in the sky that are definitely UFO?
13-Jan-2015, Vancouver, BC: (7:10 am)
saw six oval-shaped objects that appeard to drop out of the moon in the
southwest sky. Each sped off in a northwest direction. The first
appeared red. The second was darker and appeared to have a yelowish
trail behind it. The next few appeared as dark ovals, but almost looked
more triangular in shape as they sped away to the northwest. The first
two ovals appeared to travel along the same line. The next few darker
triangular shapes traveled in the same direction, but on slightly
honestly don't know what I saw, at first I thought my eyes were
deceiving me, but I was awake and lucid, outside having a cigarette and
staring up towards the moon - there was a break in the fog, and I saw
what I've described above!!
14-Jan-2015, Tsawwassen, BC: (7 - 7:30 pm)
I was driving south along 56 street in Tsawwassen I noticed two small
orbs of light directly beside each other in the sky. The orb on the
left did a clockwise circle around the orb on the right and at the 9
o'clock mark flew off at a steady speed, blinking every second as it
did so. Both lights faded from sight.
20-Jan-2015, Victoria, BC: (6:30 am)
6:30ish this morning I saw a very bright light in the NW sky - roughly
above the West Shore of greater Victoria. It struck me because it
wasn't a round star-like light but an elongated one. It looked to my
naked eye like it was flashing red and blue lights. It was totally
stationary. I grabbed my little opera glasses and was able to zoom in
on it. It showed one very bright center light with four dimmer ones,
two on each side for five lights altogether. It is twenty to
eight and the light is still there though dimmer because of dawn and
light cloud cover - ten minutes ago I could still count five lights.
would think that the five lights with the center one (Venus perhaps) so
bright that the other two on each side were a refraction of the center
and caused by light of dawn over the horizon - or some such
explanation. However, the five lights never wavered even with
changing sky dawning and cloud. The lights were steady as a rock for
the entire hour that I watched. I didn't have a camera I'm sorry to
say, but if you draw five circles along one horizontal line with the
center being very, very bright, you will have it.
Thank you for the sighting report.
brightest object you saw would not have been Venus, as it is always
close to our sun. If it was visible early in the morning, it would have
to be in the southeast sky. However, if you think the objects might
have been celestial, there is a simple indicator that you may have
noticed. Due to the earth's rotation, celestial objects such as stars
and planets would have rotated about 15 degrees in the hour that you
watched (rotation roughly centered around Polaris in the northern sky).
Objects in the west would have rotated closer to the horizon and
objects in the east would have rotated further from the horizon. Did
you notice if the lights were closer to the horizon after the hour that
18-July-2014, Aldergrove, BC: (between 9:30 and 11:00)
was laying on my couch with windows open, lights and tv low. I noticed
bright red neon lights that were horizontal to my living room window
(it faces east). I didn't even sit up halfway and I said "Holy S***",
because I knew that I couldn't understand what I was seeing. The red
neon beams were of different lengths. Four to eighty feet long. They
attached to a great ball of immense light it was fuzzy where they
joined. My 17-year-old came out from the washroom thinking I had
stubbed my toe. When she came down the hall she saw me staring out the
window, still not even sitting upright. She had her iphone in hand and
I remember her saying I gotta take a picture of this. I then got up and
walked to the window to get a better look. The trees across the street
were glowing red and the red neon beams came out from all directions.
It was hovering out my living room window less than 100 feet away and
lower than the telephone pole behind it. The pole has three
transformers on it. There was no noise only a vibration like an "ohm"
could be felt in waves. I was mesmerized and I couldn't take my eyes
off of this light. There seemed to be movement somehow inside the
light. The glow of red dimmed as did the brightness. The red neon beams
that seemed to be 8inches around had a flat solid end and I watched
them retract into the light ball. The light ball was the size of a cube
van. It was a windy night with some cloud cover but no rain. It dimmed
and shrank until it flashed a dim yellow amber than shrunk. I remember
seeing a flash of a silvery metal capusule, then it blinked from the
band around the center, moved 20-30 feet east and disappeared in front
next day it seemed that my memory was showing my mind things that I do
not remember happening, such as not even looking at the object out the
window but knowing it was there. My daughter never got a picture as she
was also too mesmerized. I did canvass neighbors on the following day
but couldn't find anyone other than my daughter and I that witnessed.
a week later I also saw three large orange lights that were in a
triangle formation. They were also east out my window. The lights were
also witnessed by my daughter. They blinked out one at a time without
moving. They were the size of a dime held at arm's length.
was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Has there been any
other sightings around that time? I have also since found out that
Corina Saebels had reported missing time and a sighting. We live in the
same community and I'm just blocks away from where the film footage of
her story was taken. Is this a strange coincidence?
see your site says both paranormal and UFO - this could be one or the
other. I have no idea and I'm hoping in fact this is simply a human
thing with an explanation but so far no luck.
I am severely rattled.
- Jan 30 starting around 9:30 p.m. there is lots and lots of racket
like thumps and movement and so on outside that I can hear on this
rural acreage (and I have heard noises like this in the past but would
ignore them because I am alone here). Where I am is very rural and
isolated and dark at night. So much noise that night on Jan 31
that 5 times I turn down the TV remote - but the noise then does
seem to stop. I don't go look because it is dead dark and Im alone here
and scared to look. Back to TV and again the noise - from outside
I am sure ( not the TV). At 10:30 I go into kitchen for a glass of
water - look out the window and almost have a heart attack. Why?
because there is a vehicle driving off this property on the driveway
which is about 10 metres from window. I CLEARLY SEE THE OUTLINE OF A
VEHICLE AND THE RED TAIL LIGHTS REALLY REALLY BRGHT. No big deal but
read on. I assume someone is here and perhaps stealing as there is farm
equipment here. I call my sister as she owns this property. Then I take
a flash light and go to front porch and shine it and here is when I get
really freaked - we have a huge metal gate always padlocked and there
it is still pad locked. I expected to see an open gate. And In fact I
recall returning home earlier in the day and locking the gate as usual.
How could the vehicle have gone through the gate? To add to this there
were vehicle noises I heard throughout all of this.
Jan 31 same scenario except the other way around - time is 9 p.m. a
vehicles come to gate and drives in - except gate is locked. I call my
sister and she comes right away - this is her property. She arrives and
goes to the back of the property to see if vehicle is there - no
vehicle. As well in both cases she looked for tire tracks and the only
ones there were mine and only foot prints in mud were mine. She is
adamant there is no other access (like from behind the property) to get
onto this land. And even if there were, how can a vehicle drive through
a gate. Because this is a vehicle it is creepy to me -- although
nothing has happened to me except fright. What the hell is this? This
may sound funny to an outsider but believe me when you are here alone
this is not funny because it is so bizarre.
I have never heard of something like this............ I am a devout follower of Christ and I am not lying.
sister was taken when she was 15 but never me I believe. Is this
paranormal or a UFO in disguise or something else - if so why in
disguise as a vehicle - why????
THANKS EVER SO MUCH
- I am kind of frightened but I refuse to leave here as have to face my
fear. But any advice - I would be grateful. Again I know this is kind
of funny. But not to me.
First, please do not be scared – there is no reason to be.
to what the lights may be, it could simply be that the distance you
thought you saw the car was not the actual distance. As you said it was
dark, at night and you were already on edge – it is very normal to
misjudge distances and the like when one is under duress in less than
ideal weather conditions. The fact that you did not find any tire
tracks (good on you for searching) then it is likely nothing.
if it is indeed something else, if they possess the technology to
levitate the car, why would they bother using roads? Or be stopped by a
wooden door if they wanted in the house. Of course we were not there,
but what makes sense and seems the most reasonable is that a car came
up to the driveway, tried to gain access (hence the noise) and took off
when you went outside (or shortly before) and you saw it leave the gate.
suggestions if it happens again, have a large flashlight/spotlight (can
be purchased for less than $20 at Canadian Tire or WalMart) at the
ready and jump out and see what you think you’re seeing. Either way,
good luck and if you think there is someone stealing your property, you
can always call the police they will be more than happy to come out to
make sure you’re ok.
Let us know what transpires!
Mid 1990's, Kelowna, BC: (around 4 pm)
I am not exactly sure of the date, I could find out from the building that I was working on.
was coming home from work at the RBC in Westbank heading north towards
Kelowna on HWY97 in the Mount Boucherie Road area. It was in the fall
so the Sun was low in the sky, it was also fairly clear weather. On the
horizon to the north of Kelowna I saw an amazing light streak across
the sky parallel with the horizon. The best way I can describe it is
white and with a multi colour effect changing colour as it traveled. It
was going at an amazing rate of speed right across the visible horizon.
I have seen many meteorites and falling stars, this was different it
went parallel with the horizon and did not burn out. I was also an Air
Cadet and have an interest in Aviation, I know how different
aircraft look at speed including fighters, nothing is as fast as what I
saw. The area it flew from was (this is a guess) from the Beaver Lake
area of Winfield west towards the coast. I asked a co employee who was
behind me in traffic the next day if he saw anything. He kind of gave
me a funny look and told me what he sa, it was the same thing. I can
not explain what we saw, but I thought I would share it with you.
8-Feb-2015, Invermere, BC: (12:30 am)
a friends house at 12:30 AM on Feb 08, 2015, I witnessed something I
cannot explain and after analyzing and processing it mentally, I can
only conclude I saw a UFO. I live in the BC Rockies near Invermere. The
night was partly cloudy and weather was mild. As I was walking towards
my vehicle I saw a streak of green, at its head appeared to be a
cylindrical or flattened oval object. We live in a flight path area
between Vancouver and Calgary and I am used to seeing all manner of man
made objects passing overhead. This object was travelling at an
incredible rate of speed. I have never seen anything so fast before. It
emitted a glow of green unlike any green I have seen in nature, almost
neon, and due to the speed left a light trail behind it. It was low
enough to penetrate the clouds. There was absolutely no sound. No sonic
boom. I have seen meteors and it was not like any meteor I have ever
seen. At the speed it was travelling I would estimate that its flight
over the Rockies from my location to the prairies would have been a
matter of a few seconds. It was travelling West to East. Unfortunately
the event was over in a blink of an eye so no photo opportunity.
From what your description is providing, I would say you guessed correctly what you saw: A green meteor, similar to this one:
course, with that being said, there was the 50's Project Twinkle that
studied apparent Green Fireballs that were unexplained.
So our guess is as good as yours :)
Great sighting thanks for the report!
name is "Ruth" and I just need to tell someone who won't think I am
insane. I am 35 years old and these events took place from the time I
was very little: 1980s to 1996. I was not alone for all of them either.
I grew up in XXXX and XXXX on Vancouver Island. When I was quite young
my grandfather had a stroke and lived in the hospital. Every night my
grandmother would take me or my sister to the hospital to visit him
around 8pm. On one night just as we had pulled up to the hospital we
saw this weird almost oval reddish light with a smaller black oval in
its center. My grandmother said not to get out of the car. I had this
feeling in my head and my stomach, almost like extreme nervousness and
terror. I couldn't stop looking. It was there for a few seconds and
then gone. We sat in the car for quite awhile until my grandmother felt
it was safe to get out. It didn't seem like anyone else noticed or was
afraid. On the drive back we saw it in the sky again. It was about a
forty minute drive home, that night it was almost midnight before we
made it home. I remember because my parents were mad at how late we
were and how I needed to be in bed.
I was around nine we were living on XXXX Avenue, near XXX High School.
It was the early evening and my sister was on the couch reading, I
can't remember where anyone else was but I was in my room changing and
the next thing I remember was getting that same feeling again. Next
thing I know my sister was waking me up telling me I must have fallen
asleep and she was laughing at me because my arms were over my head and
my sweatshirt was halfway off with my head covered by the middle. She
said I had been in my room for two hours when she came to check on me.
moved several years later to XXXX Road near XXX Lake. The summer of
1995 my dad was in the backyard watering and he called me out on the
deck. In the sky was what I can only describe as a flying saucer. It
felt like seconds but when we both came to it was way later. The sun
was in a different location and my dad was standing in a couple inches
of water. We went inside shaken. My dad will still talk to me about
that as it was traumatic. I opened up to my husband about this and he
looks at me funny now. My dad told him what happened all those years
ago and it didn't matter. I am not crazy.
17-Feb-2015, Abbotsford, BC: (9 pm)
an orange light heading west in the sky. Appeared for about 15 seconds,
stopped twice and then disappeared. Wondering if anyone else saw it?
19-Feb-2015, Tagish Lake, Yukon: (8:15 pm)
orange lights going up like a roman candle in slow motion one after the
other and then lining up in diagonal straight line. They then stayed in
that configuration until one by one disappearing. As I was going back
to the house I saw one more that stayed in the same spot and then also
disappeared. 815 pm Thursday night feb19
Has any one else reported this sighting?
