July-1981, Og Lake, BC:
1981 (late July) my parents sent me to the YMCA summer
Camp Chief Hector (near Canmore, AB).
had a choice to ether go horse back trail riding or go on
a hike along the continental divide. I chose the hike as
I'm not a big fan of riding horses. We had 10 days to hike
from highway 93 just across the BC border near Ball Pass
on the way to Radium to Spray Lakes Reservoir back in
Alberta via Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park's Wonder
Pass. On about day five we had to hike from Porky Pine
Creek to Og Lake through a section known as The Valley Of
The Rocks. This is a strange valley as there is no fresh
water for about 10 miles only stagnant ponds of
undrinkable water. Halfway through this valley we walked
by a pond about 50 feet across and what looked to be about
four feet deep in the centre. There was a set of human
looking tracks running right through the middle. Now what
really struck me was the colour of the water. It almost
looked like tea (yellowish brown) and smelt like rotten
eggs. Who in their right mind would do this and not just
walk around it? Any way we camped overnight at Og Lake
then spent two days at Mt. Assiniboine. Then early the
second last day we hiked over Wonder Pass down to Spray
Lakes Reservoir and camped on the edge of the lake. After
waking up the next morning the other guys ask me if I
heard something creeping around in the bushes after we
went to bed. I hadn't, being so exhausted I fell a sleep
almost immediately. They told me something was hanging
around near the camp site for quite a while just outside
of the campfire light. It's almost like something followed
us through the pass. We then hiked to the dam and were
picked up by the camp van. Thank you for your time.
8-Feb-2018, Qualicum Beach, BC: (6:10 pm to 6:45
go to this particular beach in Qualicum daily, if not
twice daily some days. Only once have I noticed an unusual
light across the water, but couldn’t decide what it was
and dismissed it. A few nights ago I stopped to watch the
sunset and noticed (in the same place I saw the first
strange light sighting approximately a year ago) a bright
light. The bright light quickly dimmed but remained
stationary. Then a big round bright light dropped below
it, also stationary. Very slowly the original light moved
over and away, eventually disappearing. The big light also
eventually disappeared, like it slowly turned off. All of
this happened over about 5 minutes. I waited for about
another 5 minutes and the big bright light came back on
again. About 3-4 minutes later it again, turned off
slowly. Waited another 5 or so minutes, and this time two
super bright round lights came on at the same time, right
beside the other, almost like headlights in the sky. One
light slowly moves to the right, the left one goes out
first, about a minute or two later the right one goes out.
I will note, the light was so bright that it lit up the
horizon (it was lower in sky) and reflected off the water.
At one point during this, there was what I assumed to be a
distant airplane flying as it had blinking lights and
moved smoothly in sky. I took videos and photos as best I
could, using my Iphone 8.
occurred between 6:10-645pm approximately.
you for the sighting report - very nice pictures!
you give me an idea of what direction you were looking? In
picture 1, the two lights on the right side are obviously
on land - is that Lasqueti Island? Exactly what part of
the beach were you on?
for your quick response! And you’re right, that is
Lasqueti Island and I was at Judges Row (see screenshot
photo attached). The two lights on right side is what I am
thinking is Lasqueti Island ferry terminal, as they are
Good, that makes sense - you were looking almost directly
north? The smaller light (upper and to the left) is the
one you saw first? Then the bigger brighter light
people report a bright light just after sunset, I always
think of Venus, but it would be in the western sky, and at
the moment it is too close to the Sun to be seen. You will
probably be able to see it after sunset near the end of
the month. There are no planets in the evening sky at this
time, so astronomically, neither light makes sense. Of
course, a second super bright light later on makes even
you have a higher resolution image you could send us?
Should be 3 - 5 meg in size?
was looking almost directly North, yes. And you’re right,
the smaller light (upper left) is the first light i saw
(was originally brighter than what is captured in the
image and then faded to what you see in the photo, and
then eventually faded away entirely), and the bright light
below it was the second light.
typically will look for explanations first before
assuming, and in this case I had no explanations. The way
these lights “turned on” and “powered down” were
unexplainable for me, the movement, the brightness of the
lights, etc. You’re right, definitely not a planet,
definitely not a star. I watched for such a long time for
a few reasons, one was of course because i’d never seen
anything like this before and two was because i wanted to
make sure it wasn’t a low flying airplane, such as
airforce, or even search and rescue. But, I quickly
realised that neither were occurring since a) the lights
didn't move for long periods of time/were too bright, b)
there were no engine sounds c) I’ve seen both airforce and
search and rescue coppers many times and know how to both
decipher and identify them. So again, couldn’t come up
with any possible answers here.
23-Jan-2018, Trail, BC: (9:30 pm to 10:30 pm)
visiting my former home town of Trail, BC, I had the
strangest experience on the evening of Tuesday, January
23, 2018. We were in a house in the Gulch, along Rossland
Avenue, near St. Anthony's Church. Two of us were seated
on a couch watching television. Starting around 9:30 p.m.,
my viewing was occasionally interrupted by intermittent
flashes of bright blue-white light shining into the
bathroom window, which is on the northwest outside wall of
the house - the television is next to the hallway leading
to the bathroom. The light would flash in the window for a
second or two, then stop. A minute or two later, it would
do it again. It kept doing this at irregular intervals.
first, I thought it was a neighbour playing a prank with a
bright spotlight, and I found it quite irritating as it
repeated several times, sort of a sweeping motion or
flashing. But then it occurred to me that the light was
shining downward toward the window, and I thought that it
could be someone playing with a light on the hillside
below Highway 22, or possibly lights high on a vehicle
(like on top of a truck or snowplow) on the highway,
except there are a lot trees that would be in the way and
it would be an incredible inconvenience for someone to be
hiking up there in a snowstorm, and the lights were too
bright to have come from vehicles as far away as the road.
As the flashing persisted, I then realized that the light
was coming from much higher than that, as if from the sky.
That piqued my curiosity, so I went to the back door of
the house to see if there was some issue with the power
lines. It had been snowing heavily all day and evening, so
I wondered if the storm was shorting out wires. I stood
and looked at the lines for about half a minute, but
seeing no further flashing, went back inside. By then, it
was a little after 10 p.m.
after returning to my place in front of the television,
more lights flashed through the window, brighter than
previously. So, I went into the bathroom to look through
the window to see if I could find the source. Still, I
couldn't see where they were coming from.
wife, who had seen me check outside and then check the
bathroom, asked what I was doing, and I described the
flashing lights I had seen. She then explained that she
could see lights flashing on the bed throughout that time.
The lights seemed to be coming in the bedroom window,
which is on a wall that faces southwest. The ceiling light
had been turned on with the dimmer switch turned down low,
so she had assumed that the dimmer circuit was somehow
causing the light to flicker brightly and creating an
optical illusion. From my vantage point, I couldn't see
into the bedroom. From her vantage point, my wife couldn't
see into the bathroom. Neither of us thought to mention
the peculiar lights to the other.
11 p.m. our area of the city began experiencing power
outages lasting up to about 10 minutes each. I'm pretty
sure they were caused by the heavy, wet snow that was
accumulating, and not in any way connected to the flashing
lights. However, each time the power went out, I looked
out the windows to see how much of the neighbourhood or
the city was affected. But at no time did I see any more
blue-white flashes. They had ended by about 10:30 or a
next morning, while I was shovelling the previous night's
snow from our walks, a neighbour asked if we heard the
"weird noises in the sky last night." I asked her what the
noises were like and she described a type of whirring or
trilling sound that was unlike any she had heard before.
She said that this was around 9:30 when she went to have a
smoke on her porch. She didn't see any lights, but she
said that the sound was overhead and frightened her enough
that she cut short her break and went inside for the rest
of the night.
I was outside and when I looked out the windows the
previous evening, I could see that the overcast sky was
low on the hillsides, below 500 meters (we were at about
425 meters elevation). If there was something up there
shining lights, it would have to have been pretty low to
penetrate the heavy cloud cover and snow. I wonder if
anyone else in the area saw or heard anything.
19-July-2014, Naramata, BC:
17 2014. On the following Saturday July 19th I was setting
up a satellite dish in Naramata, BC. Going up a ladder I
saw a hawk floating by then behind the hawk I saw the same
white spot move quickly from one cloud to another from
west to east. About 1/4 of the horizon looking almost
straight up was blue sky. I did not notice any trail. Of
course, the possible witness had just gone in the
Note: On July 17, 2014, a BC news crew
was doing a video of the Smith Creek fire and caught a
brief glimpse of an unidentified object. This ufo was
believed to be a meteorite that skipped into the
atmosphere and then continued back into space.
25-Aug-2017, Nisga'a Memorial Lava Bed Provincial
UFO BC wanted you to see a few photos I took when I was on
Vacation in BC. If you look on the small mountain in the
back you'll see a brown object almost in the middle and if
you look up by my friend's red cap to the right you can
see a black object in the sky.
you look at the second picture you'll see both objects
together above her head on the right.
was Nisga'a Memorial Lava Bed Provincial Park and the
black object is at 3 o'clock from red cap. You might have
to enlarge photo to see it and these photos are about 5
secs apart. I also see a report on your site on July 30 in
B.C. about a translucent triangle size of a house
wondering if it was the same area. I have been told by
locals and friends the Lava Beds area has a lot of
unreported sightings of UFOs.
let me state that photos are great if they are supporting
an actual eye witness account, but not so useful on their
own, with the objects being seen after the fact. Did
anyone actually see the fuzzy object over the pink lady's
head? If seen, I would say it might be a cloud of dust,
such as from a mine shaft explosion. Was a sound heard a
few seconds later? If not seen, I would suspect a spot of
lint on the camera lens.
black object beside the red cap is too small and doesn't
have enough detail to come to any conclusion. Again, if a
disc-shaped object was seen flying over your heads and
zipping around the sky, and you only managed to photograph
it just before it disappeared, then it would be important
as verification of the visual sighting. As a small black
dot on a photograph, even if visually seen as such, it
does not have much importance.
for the July 30 sighting, I will ask the person again for
more information, especially the sighting location.
for the report.
27-Feb-2018, Vancouver, BC:
am sending some photos for you to examine. These were
taken on Feb. 27th from a Vancouver office tower in the
looks interesting and I have no idea what they could be.
Perhaps photo enhancements might help you out but I wanted
to forward these along regardless. They were taken with
cellphone so the quality is mediocre at best. However what
is interesting is that they did change position and appear
to be doing a fly by of the area. I am attaching the
originals as well as the cropped so you can see what I am
referring to. Three unidentified objects appear in the
first thought was that the white objects were sea gulls, a
common site in Vancouver, but closer inspection didn't
show any of the signs of birds in flight. My partner,
Martin, suggested they could be reflections of recessed
ceiling lights in the room behind the photographer. The
distortion of the images could possibly be caused by by
the window slightly vibrating in the wind (note the
flags). The photographer went back to the room where the
photos were taken and could find no ceiling lights that
could have caused reflections. She also took a few more
pictures, at the same time of day, and standing in the
same spot, but no lights were apparent in the new photos -
now, still a mystery!
8-Mar-2018, Surrey, BC: (7:25 pm)
725pm March 8 2018 a orangey/red glowing orb passed by my
condo window it was big enough for me and my buddy
watching tv to catch our eyes, we tried to rule out
everything shooting star, drone, laser pointer nope the
way it flew and how it maneuvered at those speeds appeared
to be going 4x speed of a plane but slow enough to capture
its movement. It went 2km fast with a slow slightly
rounding drop then totally dropped straight down .5 km
then resumed full speed ... it looked like the size of a
golf ball if you held it 10ft away but it was flying
approx 5 km away and 5km up. It was in the fleetwood
region of Surrey bc.
very very strange, strange enough to email some random
local ufo website. And I’m a realist needing proof of
anything to believe it, but I went over all the
know what I saw and that was a muthafuckin alien ship.
15-Mar-2018, Abbotsford, BC: (8:40 pm)
not quite sure what I saw to be honest. I am a skeptic
when it comes to things like this...
March 15, 2018 approximately 8:40 pm I was driving west on
Huntingdon Rd in Abbotsford (with another person). It was
already dark outside. In the distance it looked as though
there was a plane ahead and it didn't really draw any
attention until minutes later... as I continued driving it
looked as though the plane was flying rather low and also
slow. It was hard to tell really as the distance seemed
deceiving in the dark ... As we were driving we both
realized that this was not a low flying airplane in the
distance. It was not a plane at all. It was some sort of
air craft but definitely not an airplane or a drone. It
wasn't moving but it was hovering or rather stationary in
the sky above the road I was driving on. I drove directly
beneath it, whatever this thing was. It was completely
black ... with red and green lights that blinked as
would an airplane flying through the night sky. I couldn't
hear any sounds coming from it until we were directly
beneath it, then I could hear the sound of some kind of
engine. It hovered just above the power lines (with regard
to distance). The width of it was approximately the same
width as the road I was on. From what I could see when
driving beneath it there were some kind of strips of
material or something I don't know how to describe it. I
slowed as I was driving beneath it and was kind of freaked
out a bit too to be honest. I was telling the passenger to
take my phone and take pics but the craft being behind us
now so I did a U turn when I got up the hill and tried to
drive fast to where it was but it was gone. It was only
seconds before it was just a dot. I stopped and I did try
to video it, but the quality is poor and it just looks
like a dot moving in the dark sky. I am a skeptic and
really am unsure what to think. I just know it was not a
drone. I tried to look up sightings for this area but
there were no others from what I could tell as I don't
really know where one would look to find out... there was
a sighting in Ontario where they saw something almost
exactly the same about a day apart.
for the report.
too am not sure what you may have seen. Could you possibly
draw the object for us?
am trying to determine how far off the ground it was, and
how large it appeared – you mentioned the width of the
road – how large would you say that was?
and looking forward to hearing from you,
attempted to draw it. Sorry it looks like an elementary
child's drawing! It was way more dimensional than the
drawing. It wasn't a flat surface - indentations between
the lights. And on top the lights were a little less
centered, more negative space between the lights, because
from a distance it deceptively had the look of airplane
lights. It wasn't triangular, more rectangular. There's an
airport a couple/few miles from this area it was at, so
it's not too bizarre to see low elevated lights etc.,
because one would assume it's airport related. But I
literally didn't make it out until I was right there...
Cause it wasn't moving and my eyes were first on the
lights until I saw the entire machine. It was not a drone
