Reported 1-March, 2014
Vancouver, BC: (11:30 pm)
have a video link that I shot with my iPhone. It was really strange. At
first, before I started filming, there were 6 lights, moving through
the sky in a V formation. Then, the one by one, seems to move farther
away - and disappeared. I kept filming and more joined. Did anyone else
see this? Here's the link: http://youtu.be/y8nd9g2FGnQ
BC: (7 pm)
landlord was driving me home tonight and as we were talking a HUGE
flash of amber light appeared over the Fraser River, only a couple
hundred feet up. The entire sky lit up but a very clear orb was the
source. It must have been at least the width of the river. There was no
fore-warning, or any sign of anything after the fact. The weather is
rainy, foggy and generally miserable, but when this flashed it was
bright as day. This is the second ufo I have seen/reported since
December (the first was Dec 11th, scroll up to see). Both were
basically along the Fraser River. This was nothing like the first
sighting I had - many times bigger. If I were to hold my arm out the
object would have been 2x the size of my fist, at a 20-30 degree angle
from the ground. There are no air traffic buoyies over that part of the
river or any warning lights that could have burnt out. There should
have been nothing there at all.
Vancouver, BC: (about 11:30 pm)
friend and I were walking West along King Edward Avenue, on the North
Side heading back to said friend's house we both saw what looked like 3
orange/red orbs above Queen Elizabeth Park.
it seemed two of the orbs were moving and one was stationary above the
other two. I would estimate the altitude was no more than 500 meters
above Queen Elizabeth Park. As well, I would estimate the position of
these objects to be slightly West and North of the Bloedel Floral
Conservatory in QE Park when viewed from a map above.
first we were intrigued and my Friend suggested that they could be
lights on a construction crane. However, there are no construction
cranes in the park. As well, I did not see any outline of any crane or
other structure around or in between the orbs.
went south along a street to get a closer look at the orbs and we were
startled by a dog in somebody's yard that seemed very aggressive
towards us. Perhaps it was aware of the orbs too, perhaps not. After
walking closer to Nat Bailey Stadium overlooking the northern face of
the park, we got a better look at the orbs.
only two were left, and they were orange/red or amber orbs of light,
with the light being uniformly distributed along the body of the orb. I
did not suspect that they were Chinese lanterns, as the light they
emitted was uniform and unflickering, and one orb was stationary while
the other was moving around it. As well, they made no noise as they
hovered above the park.
viewing the orbs for maybe 6 more minutes, the two orbs gradually
shrunk into pinpoints and then disappeared altogether. Very strange
8-Mar-2014, Sooke, BC:
object is in the sky in relatively the same spot on several occasions.
Very large bright multi coloured "star" like object which continuously
moves slowly up and down or side to side. It emits a greenish light
that changes colours quite frequently. I've tried to capture the image
on my phone but wasn't really successful. Have to see it to fully
understand. I've showed my room mate who was too afraid to be outside
after I pointed it out. Not like any star or planet I have ever seen
before. Am located by the 17 mile house in Sooke bc and can see the
object directly in front of me when I am looking towards Sooke
direction in the horizon. Creepy as hell.
BC: (7 pm)
was sitting in my livingroom talking with my husband when I saw the
night sky light up like it was daylight. From where my home is up high
in the mountain I saw a HUGE STRIP along the horizon (could have been
anywhere from the Fraser river as far as Abbotsford) but it was so
bright and flashed for only a few seconds and then went back to being
the night sky. My husband had his back to the window and the view was
just over his shoulder or I would have missed it. I was in amazement
and shock trying to describe what I had seen. It wasn't anything small
- it looked like a strip of the entire horizon had lit up. I didn't see
anything hovering or a UFO but I read that someone else had seen
something over the fraser river. It was so crazy to see the black
sky go bright blue for that second. I'm wondering if anyone else saw
anything that night.
BC: (10:55 pm)
I would like to report a strange orange/amber light in the sky to the
north. The light was very bright and appeared to be about 100 feet
above the roof tops of 7th Avenue in Mission, BC. I saw it from my back
yard on 5th Avenue. The light got brighter and dimmed out until it just
vanished without a trace. At first I thought it was a meteor or
something and then noticed it didn't appear to be moving. I have
reported the same light a few years ago. It was very strange the whole
observation lasted about 2 minutes and it went from being very light to
gone in the time. I heard no noise or anything that would indicate a
plane or helicopter. I would suggest it was not flare as I didn't seem
to drop down in an arc or move at all.
I would like to hear some explanation if you have one.
observation sounds like a Chinese lantern. Are you not aware of them?
are paper lanterns that use a candle to heat the internal air making
the lantern rise.
candle also provides illumination. The lanterns will sometimes flicker
before they burn out.
sorts of sightings are quite numerous and we frequently receive similar
sightings from areas all over the lower mainland.
took these pictures in October 2012 for a pilot show (Red Widow) shot
on the marina in North Vancouver where I live. I took some picture at
the same time, and only on this one we can see a green light. I asked
to the Director if it was a device from the show and he told me not,
probably a reflect in the clouds. I will be curious to have your point
of view. If you need a better quality of course I can provide it.
Thank you for your
Given the colour of the light and the reflection pattern, I can
comfortably say it is a green coloured laser being fired from the
ground up to the cloud cover (notice the dot at the center and the
dispersion around into the cloud).
Thank-you for the photo!
Abbotsford, BC: (8:15 pm)
husband and I were driving home tonight and I noticed some blinking
lights up towards the low hills in East Abbotsford. I thought it was
strange because of the position as it was just to the left of the red
beacon lights for the airplanes. As we continued driving, the object
got closer and I got really excited. I could make out a triangular
shape with a red, green and white light at each tip.
was flying low and was about 4" inches across in
diameter. I knew for sure it was a UFO, when I saw a plane in the
background heading towards the airport travelling at a much faster
speed. It put everything into perspective as to how slowly the object
was travelling and how close it was to the ground. We were home in
under a minute and i jumped out of the car to try to get a picture, but
it was gone. Darn!!
for the report!
provide a bit more details for us, so that we can mentally have a picture of the
high off the ground would you say the object was when you saw it? Also how far part were
the lights? You mention 4 inches in diameter - I am having difficulty in
understanding the meaning of that size. Do you mean the lights themselves were 4"
across, or that there were 4" apart (and thus the object was the size of a
colours you describe are the colour requirements for lights on aircraft:
the obvious question: What made you think it couldn't be an aircraft given that you were
near an international airport, and around the flight path of known
of course playing the devil's advocate, but this type of information is essential to paint
a clear picture.
forward to hearing from you!
Steveston, BC: (10:40 pm)
husband was outside of our townhouse walking our dog. My daughter
summoned me from upstairs and I could hear my husband calling for me to
come quickly. My daughter told me as I was throwing on shoes that they
saw 3 red/orange objects coming down from the sky.
I got on scene these 3 objects had vanished. As my husband was
explaining to me what he saw (3 red/orange round objects hovering in a
triangle over about a 2 minute period) another red orange object
appeared from west to east.
looked like it was staying in one position for about 1 minute then
started to have bright bursts like pulsating pattern. I caught this one
on video on my phone and it was 2mins 37 seconds long before it
had never seen flares before but we called it into the police because
we were concerned that a vessel might be in distress on the Fraser
given our location.
We were patched through to the coast guard I believe (jrcc
victoria) whom we spoke with and I also emailed the video along to.
was a very clear night last night, planes overhead passed us and this
object I witnessed was completely different. The operator told us that
flares generally only last 45 seconds to 1 minute. Also suggested that
it could be Japanese lanterns?
was emailed back that the sightings were established not to be of a
marine emergency but no confirmation if any one else had reported this
later took the dog out to Garry Point and saw nothing further. Went on
Google and my husband said that a sighting in 2011 in Colorado that was
photographed beared an uncanny resemblance to the 3 reddish orange
hovering objects> sent chills right up my spine! They also looked
like the one I witnessed!
Stumbled across this site and wanted to post to see if
anyone else in Richmond/Ladner area had also seen this last night.
very much for the report.
know it may be very difficult to answer, but how far apart were the objects to one
another, and how high up were they and what sort of speed were they moving
(snail's pace or jet liner fast)?
first glance, as the coast guard seems to have ruled out the use of emergency flares
(from a real emergency) it may be something as mundane as a group of Chinese
lanterns. As they loose lift (due to the candle burning out) they will
start of descend and in their final death throe, give bursts of light as the
candle flickers and dies.
of course, if the speed and altitude were known, then this could rule out this (rather
simple) explanation, but given the large number of such sightings we have
from the Richmond/Vancouver area it does lean in that direction. Looking
forward to hearing back from you!
my husband was on the phone with "jrcc victoria" the operator asked how
many fists from the ground if stacked on top of another. I used my fist
and counted 5 because there was still one left when he was on the phone.
as high as the airplanes that passed overhead but much higher than
surrounding buildings and trees, as well as lamp posts. Bright orange
red distinctive colour not of any boat masts/ ships/ lampposts, etc.
slower than a plane. When it came into view it seemed to stop and hover
in front of us at a distance. We initially thought it must be right
above the Fraser.
are 2 blocks away from the river.
started to move further East, appeared to have a steady glow with a
slight pulse. Disappeared after 2 mins 40 seconds. 4 in total.
first 3 were in a triangle and one slightly moved around according to
my husband. No noise at all emitting from them.
the time I felt no fear but I did feel like it hovered within our view
almost intentionally. (I feel very weird admitting that but it's the
honest truth). When it appeared to the both of us it was moving at a
steady pace from West to East but then stopped. Restarted at a snail's
pace before it vanished Eastwardly. We were looking at the object South
post on your site from Vancouver that has a link on YouTube looked very
similar to what we saw if that helps. Height about the same.
it's entirely possible that they are lanterns of some kind, but my
for your reply.
happened at night about 10:30 pm my children and I went to bed and my
son age 5 woke me up saying mommy make them go away. I first thought he
was dreaming but he told me to look up in the sky outside the tent. I
saw a very bright light there. He told me they wanted to come and get
him. He was very scared. I could not hear anything but he said he could
hear them. Do you think this was just a dream or could it have been
for the report - very interesting account!
there is no definitive way of saying one way or another. As anyone with
children knows, 5-year olds have amazingly vivid imaginations. However,
what you describe has many elements found in typical abduction cases.
Has your son (or anyone else in your family) had any other experiences
since that event? One question for you, can you describe anything
about the light? Did you watch it for any length of time?
think it is likely you will never know the answer to your question,
perhaps it was an abduction (although he did not appear to be abducted)
- but perhaps, it was just a vivid dream that brought on by sleeping
look forward to hearing back. Thank-you again for the report.
31-Mar-2014, Kelowna, BC:
VERY saw a bright amber colored, twinkling, star, March 31, 2014
at 1:30 AM. The colors brightened around the edges, so I figured it may
be an ember from a fire, though I saw no fires, nor did I smell smoke.
We live on a flight path and can tell which direction planes are coming
from or going to. This light appeared to be a very bright star, not the
same altitude as a plane, higher. It did emit a very small red light
every 30 or so seconds. There was no sound, and no other planes in view
to compare it to. The light originally stayed put, as if floating in
the air when I first I saw it. Thought it was the prettiest star I had
ever seen. It passed by slower than a large gliding bird - in no
particular hurry, heading up the lake towards Vernon - it did not
appear to be going towards the Kelowna airport. Just curious
enough to ask if anyone saw this. Thank you.
2-Apr-2014, Kelowna, BC: (2:30 am)
what appear to be stars, shaped in the former of an anniversary ring,
three tiered, with white lights with one, perhaps two red lights in the
middle. The bigger one appears to be flight height, the smaller has
slowly ascended, and getting harder to see. They appear to be over hwy
97 in Kelowna, just before Glenmore Drive, and after Clement. Never saw
shapes like that. They certainly aren't bright enough to notice.
The smaller of the two is nearly out of eyesight.
BC: (1:19 am)
into my townhouse complex at 1:19 am I saw a bright white light cross
in from from right to left. I was facing north so that would make the
light moving from east to west in the northern sky. Though lacking
clear perspective, I would estimate it's position as being over the
airport, vancouver or over the northshore mountains though could have
been further away depending upon size.
The light was a solid blue white, probably around 5000 kelvin. It was
very distinct against the black cloudless area of sky. While moving
east to west, it decended at an angle of about 20 to 30 degrees. The
decent was not smooth and appeared to incorporate one or two dips while
changing from oval to flat to oval and possibly flat again. IF it were
saucer shaped, the best explanation would be that it was banked, then
flattened out, then banked again, then possibly flattened again before
it left my line of sight. The changes in bank (shape) appeared to
co-incide with the dips. The size of the object would be about .1 to
.15 inch at arm's length.
time in view would amount to about 1.5 - 2.0 seconds max. My line of
sight was blocked to the east by other townhouses and the latter part
of the decent was also blocked as the object disappeared behind the
roofs of other townhouses in the immediate distance.
not appear to be a meteorite although I can not rule that out. I have
seen several but none like this. It was moving very slow for a
meteorite yet much too fast for a plane. I have been in aviation for
nearing forty years so I know absolutley it was not an airplane.
Matthews Bay, BC:
just went through my photos taken last year on a boat trip from Kitimat
to Kemano and on to Chief Mathews Bay in Gardner Canal, British
Columbia. The area is very remote and there was nobody around for
dozens of miles. I was not aware of the UFO when I took this picture in
September 2013. It is only now, in April 2014, that I 'discovered' the
UFO in this image. You have to edit the image in a photo editor and
zoom in on the object. It is definitely saucer shaped. I would
appreciate an expert opinion on this. The coordinates of the sighting
are 5į20"17"N 128į07'11"W. I have attached a photo of the UFO and a
Google Earth capture of the location. I was looking upriver.
It looks like an out-of-focus bug near the camera.
a matter of being clear, since you saw no UFO, there was no UFO. All
you have is a "photographic anomaly", and one which on face value is
easily explainable as a normal bug or something else like wind blown
Creek, BC: (9:15 pm)
a formation of 6-8 lights, appeared above tree line but below overcast
clouds. Silent, no sound. Drifted to left slightly then we ran in to
tell my husband and they were gone when we ran back 30 seconds later.
We both asked each other if we had seen it, I'm not afraid of going out
in the dark, I walk my dog each night in it, but tonight was
incredible, it WAS something unique!!
Fall 2013, Vancouver,
BC: (4:00 - 4:30 pm)
was driving home after work one day in fall of 2013. This was about 5-6
months ago but I canít remember the date, except it was a work day
(M-F). It was a very clear sunny day, but still very chilly and dry
because it was fall, there was not a single cloud as far as the eye can
see. I can clearly see the Vancouver Island to the WEST and Mt. Baker
to the EAST. Normally if there is any cloud cover or humidity you canít
see that far out, it gets blurry.
was driving from work (Downtown) to home (Richmond), and as I was
crossing the Oak St. bridge heading South at about 60-70Km/h, I noticed
a single strange cloud to my EAST at a distance of about 3Km above the
Knights St. bridge. It was a large cloud looking thing but I
could clearly tell that it was far away and high above. As I kept
looking at this object I remember thinking itís odd that there is only
1 cloud in the entire Fraser valley and no other. I also thought it was
strange shape for a cloud.
- It was perfectly round at the top and
bottom. Most clouds are flat at the bottom and round at the top. They
also are never perfectly oval; they have lumps and different shades of
- It was dark gray in the center and
towards the edge. Normally its dark at the bottom and light at the top
where the sun shines on it.
- There was no motion, I was moving south
and the object stayed relative to my movement.
to this point I am still thinking itís a cloud just a strange one,
until something weird happened. On the left side of the object there
was a shimmer of reflective light, the kind you see when metal reflects
light. The shimmer started at the top left and moved down to bottom
left of the object. The light reflected appeared to have the colors of
the rainbow with a metallic feel. I knew it could not have been an
airplane even though it was directly above the flight path, for these
- Iíve seen hundreds of airplanes landing
EAST to WEST in same direction. The first thing you notice is the front
head light, even during the day. This object had no lights.
- At the same distance the object was twice
the width and three times the height of a mid size (200 passenger)
- At this distance the planes already have
the landing gear down and are visible. But NOT this object.
- At this distance the wing tips with
engines hanging down are visible. But NOT this object.
- At this distance any airplane that is
landing will be
over my head in about 20 seconds. The object did not move at all. It
took me about 2 min to drive across the bridge.
this point I knew I was looking at something strange and had rolled
down my window to get ready to take a picture. But I was already
towards the end of the bridge, and as I passed couple of trees the
object was gone. This happened in less than a second. At this point I
knew this canít be a cloud as I have never seen a cloud dissipate in
less than a second. This object was way too big to be any kind of
airplane and way to perfectly round to be a cloud. Clouds have
different shades and lumps, but this object was very plain looking with
only 2 shades of gray, dark on inside, light on outside. Also as far as
I know clouds donít reflect light in the intensity as a solid metal
is a mock up that I made to depict what I saw. I also include an image
of an actual airplane to show the size and detail comparison between
the two. The image is made from a 3rd point of view, so imagine that
the car behind the van on the bridge is me looking EAST in same
direction. This is not a picture of Oak St. bridge, itís a similar
picture I found on the internet. The smudge on the left side of the
object depicts the light glimmer I saw which was very quick.
9-Apr-2014, Vancouver, BC:
live close to Renfrew sky train at 15th & Slocan. Last night, I
decided to walk to the store for a tasty beverage. Upon exiting my back
door, I noticed two bright star-like lights in the eastern sky. They
immediately caught my attention as it was not dark yet and no other
stars were visible, so I thought to myself; 'What the fuck?' (pardon my
french.) I stared at them for a second and could not believe my eyes as
they started moving in a manner I've never seen a plane or helicopter
move. One of them started descending and moving further away, much to
my amazement it faded away and vanished before my eyes...WHAT THE
FUCK?! I called my roommate to come look, he just missed the vanishing
one, but the second one started to slowly ascend, pulsating in
brightness in a seemingly random pattern. It found a position and
remained stationary. We stared at it for about 10 mins, the thing just
pulsating. He went in, I walked slowly to the store staring at the
object the whole time. I stopped and stared at it for about 30 mins, by
this time the stars were out. The object was almost indistinguishable
from the stars, save for the fact that it was slightly brighter and
continued pulsating. I noticed the second one (barely visible) was
floating around the area, almost scanning, I would say... it would
sometimes flash faintly and then fade again.... The whole time I
watched these things I had an intense tingly-cold sensation all
throughout my body....weird!!! That's pretty much it, I watched the
stationary one for over an hour, waiting for it to do something. It
didn't. The thing is you would probably never be able to tell the
difference between it and a star if you didn't know.
Thanks for listening.
Bay, BC: (about 9 pm)
the night of April 11 my wife and I decided to have a little backyard
fire and watch the stars, even though the moon was almost full you can
still see a fair amount. About 9 p.m. I looked up and saw a bright
light travelling from S.W. to N.E. It traversed the horizon in about
30+ sec. It was by far the brightest object in the sky other than the
moon. It flew directly overhead and I paid special attention to any
noise such as a plane would make and it was absolutely quiet. Where we
are it is extremely quiet ( no traffic, nothing ) so to hear a plane or
a motor of some sort would be easy to hear. Not having something of
known size to compare it with, it is hard to say how big it was, but it
did just nicely fly over Mt. Daniel which is beside our house and it is
about 1500 ft. and if I held out my hand at arms length my thumb nail
would just block out the light. Just before it flew over Mt. Daniel we
saw another one flying from south to north on an intersecting course
with the first one. We observed this one for about 3 sec. before it
faded away right before our eyes. There were no clouds present to
obscure it, it just faded away as it was traveling. After they were
gone I went and got a camera and binoculars just in case they came
back. We stayed out for a couple more hours but saw nothing more.
Hope you might have an explanation for this or know of any others
BC: (about 4:30 pm)
We were in Kal park
and a large orange disk shape appeared over the lake.
Terrace, BC: (daytime)
single large disc shape sat still in the blue sky beside a hill as if
it was peering around it with I think 3-4 witnesses
..... moved left slow then right then left and as it
moved left it had lit up fully and disappeared.
BC: (about 10 pm)
seen many similar strange sightings over the last two years, viewed
across the water around Sechelt, BC. In all instances, the events
included orange lights, sometimes in formation, travelling over the
Strait of Georgia towards Nanaimo.
This particular sighting on April 14/14 took place between and slightly
behind the Trail Islands as viewed from West Sechelt (at approximately
a distance of 3km off shore), at around 10pm.
There were six lights, travelling together in pairs at different
altitudes, with the highest being approximately 300m off the water, and
the other two pairs just above the water. All were moving
together at the same pace. The foremost pair of lights was white in
colour, and one blinking light. The second pair was also white
lights of medium brightness, while the pair at the highest altitude
were orange. While watching the event occur, one of the top
orange lights flared up to an extremely bright "fireball", and stayed
at this incredible brightness for approximtely 1 minute before dimming
Watched these lights as they headed off across the Strait, and then
they became dim and/or blinked out and disappeared.
Would love to hear more reports from people in the Sechelt area, as I
am sure others have witnessed such events. I always watch for
them now, as it seems during certain times of the year the lights can
be seen out on the water sometimes up to 2 times per week, ususally
about an hour after dusk through to late evening on clear nights.
I have also seen them originate from behind Davis Bay / Wilson Creek
area, as viewed from West Sechelt beaches. They usually always
show up as orange lights that 'flare up' as they move across the Strait
or remain stationary at altitudes approximately the same as regular
float plane traffic.
Invermere, BC: (4:30 am)
was outside and the sun wasn't up yet but it's light was beginning to
light up the night sky. The stars were still fully visible. As I looked
up I saw a bright flash and then a smaller flash. I've seen this before
and thought it was an iridium flare satellite. I continued to watch it
as the now smaller light travelled across the sky. All of a sudden it
did a 45 degree turn! I watched as this object then started to dart
across the sky making small deviations in its flight path one of which
was a fairly large circle. By now the sun was coming up and the night
sky was brightening making it more and more difficult to see the
object. Before it became near impossible to view it started doing
tight, perfect circles.
last night - 3:30am - I went outside again. My theory is that now I
know what these objects look like, possibly I may see more. I saw two
more small, fast lights making "not" straight line trajectories around
the night sky.
wondering if anyone else has seen these objects because last night it
seemed there were lots of them? I've found that you have to look at a
piece of sky clear of any other stars or bright objects and look for
tiny specks of light that are moving very quickly. They're hard to see
but once you know what to look for there are lots.
River, BC: (9:40 pm)
bright light, turquoise in colour, in the northwest sky over the
straight adjacent to Powell River. Light hovered, moved from side to
side, up and down in speed that was not indicative of civilian
aircraft. Lasted about 1 min then descended out of view and not seen
Seen by myself and
my boyfriend Steve
2-May-2014, Oliver, BC:
really don't know what it was... at first I thought it was a meteor
hitting the atmosphere since that's exactly what it looked like - a
streak of light moving incredibly fast through the night sky. I was on
my deck star gazing. I live just north of town, and the night sky is
filled with stars on a clear night, so I enjoy just looking up at the
beautiful view. I have seen "shooting stars" before, and I always get a
thrill when I see them, and I had heard that there was some meteor
activity lately. This one, though, made a sound. The best I can
describe it is like a low vocalization of the letter V (not "veeee" but
"vvvvv") for a few seconds. It seemed to be coming from the object, but
it was not the sound of something motorized. It was not an insect, bat
or bird as it was lit up, and not from reflected light. It was
obviously not something hitting the atmosphere as the sound did not
come after the sighting, but just behind it, indicating it was fairly
close. I would not have deemed it strange except for that sound. It was
moving very rapidly from north to south, and was only visible (and
audible) for approximately 2 or 3 seconds and was gone. To be honest,
it kind of stunned me! I am not adverse to the possibility of
"visitors," but I am pretty skeptical of many "sightings" of said
extra-terrestrial vehicles. I'm just very curious as to what this was.
10-May-2014, Vancouver, BC: (9:45 pm)
was outside playing volleyball when this big bright light hit the sky
it had two front lights and i thought it was a plane until it hovered
upwards in a vertical motion i swear it was a ufo
12-May-2014, Armstrong, BC: (8 - 9 pm)
white star-like light just south of zenith. I thought it was
Saturn or Jupiter but it seemed too bright because it was visible
shortly after sunset and the sky was still quite blue. We looked at it
at 60x with a good 80mm refractor until some very light cloud cover
obscured it. Later it disappeared completely. It looked oval so we
thought it was Saturn at first but it looked more like a translucent
balloon. It was very close to the ecliptic, probably midway between
Mars and Jupiter. It was stationary. Was it some kind of weather
Early Morning, Invermere, BC:
first time I saw these UFO's it was quite by accident. I just happened
to be looking at the right place at the right time. They're very hard
to see and track as they move fast and are tiny but I now have come to
the conclusion that there's either something very wrong with my eyes or
there's lots of these.
best way to see them is to look at an empty bit of sky either at night
or in the early morning before the sun brightens the sky or late
evening as the stars are just beginning to come out. They seem to
sparkle and then dim but if you keep your eyes open - don't blink
- you can track them. They do not move in a straight line and I've
focused on what I know is a star and watched them move around it so I
know it's not an optical illusion. They move in a strange way - almost
look like they're scanning or looking for something. They often go
around in a circle and then hover and then take off again at a high
rate of speed.
anyone else observed these???? I'd love to know I'm not losing my mind
or need my eyes checked. Very hard to see but worth your while to use
the technique outlined above. Let me know.
17-May-2014, Parksville, BC: (5:10 pm)
wife and I seen something unusual this afternoon as we where
sitting in our back yard watching 2 eagles in the sky above our area of
housing . We seen this round white cloud looking object moving rapidly
across the clear blue area of sky. It looked like a round white cloud,
the same color as the patches of white clouds which where scattered
across the sky. I told the wife that it seemed to be a UFO -- as
we had seen UFO's before in the Yukon where we lived before. That round
cloud object was heading for a large white cloud formation, so I
ran into the house to get my 10 x 50 binoculars before the object went
into that cloud formation. When I came back out of the house the
object had already disappeared into that larger white cloud formation.
I then watched the sky for the round object to reappear somewhere
on the other side of the larger white cloud formation. At the speed
that round object was travelling it should have appeared in a short
time, but it did not seem to leave that larger white cloud formation.
I was watching around that cloud formation for that object maybe
between 5 to 10 minutes when a large coal black object appeared out of
my side of the middle of that white cloud formation for a flash of a
second only and then disappeared back into that white cloud formation.
I thought for a second that it might have been one of the 2
eagles we had been watching before, but they where still flying in
circles a long way lower than that cloud formation which was high in
the sky. I was definately a big black object which I
mistook as a large black eagle with it's wings stretched out in a
gliding flight. That round cloud looking object or the coal black
object that came out of the cloud formation for a flash of a secong did
not seem to reappear. BUT, then all of a sudden, maybe 10 minutes later
this big white jet plane came from a Southern direction and turned to
go through that white cloud formation I had been watching and
then continued to fly through the next 2 white cloud formations in a
Northern direction, like it was looking for something. The sky all
around those white cloud formations was blue, clear sky and that white
plane seemed to pick those white cloud formations to fly through.
Looking it up on the internet it appears that the white plane was a US
Air Force E-4B jet plane of high importance [look it up]. The round
cloud like speedin object was a UFO as many people have also seen,
I found out on the internet. I THINK --- that the E-4B
military jet was looking for that round cloud like speeding object [the
UFO] and was chasing it. YOU CAN PHONE ME FOR MORE INFO IF NEEDED.-----
-Very interesting to me!
15-May-2014, Terrace, BC: (2:30 pm)
2:30 PM, with mostly clear skies, myself and my co-worker spotted a
stationary white object, which at the angle of observation resembled
the shape of a long house-style propane tank, of about 15-25 m. length
and 3-5 m. in height, estimating a sight distance of about 1 km and a
height of about 300 m. above the Skeena River. The site was about 8 km
west of Terrace, BC. We observed it while driving, but lost sight
through the trees. Once we were in a position to have another look and
take a photo, it was gone (of course...) There were other vehicles
traveling just behind us. I would be surprised if none of them saw it.
I was quick to note: 1) the location was too low and too far west to be
a scheduled Dash-8 plane out of Terrace. 2) there were no wings (fixed
or rotating). 3) There was no tail fin. 4) We observed it for about 15
seconds independently out of two different windows in the vehicle, so
it can't be a reflection in the window.
31-May-2014, Terrace, BC: (12:30 am)
easterly from Highway 16 near the intersection of Hwy 16 and Hwy 37S by
Terrace, BC, myself and my girlfriend both observed an object sporting
3 very bright lights descending into the local golf course vicinity,
the lights passing through trees on the intervening hill indicating
descent on the east side of the hill.
The event took place at 12:30 am (pitch black night)
This makes two sighting in two weeks.... what the heck is going on?
2-May-2014, Abbotsford, BC: (3:00 am)
live in the lower fraser valley where on clear nights you can see every
star in vivid detail, so I often star gaze in my backyard. I am nessled
right in between the two mountains with the abbottsford airport on one
side and the flight path comes right overhead over the valley. On
may 2 at about 3:00 am (I checked my clock an hour later) I was
standing on my back porch having a smoke, looking toward the ground
when I saw a flicker in my peripheral high up in the sky
(iphone compass says 150deg/SE) It was a 'blinking white light' that
appeared to be a light from a plane. I watched it and noticed it wasn't
blinking in a pattern, it was like blink 2x, pause pause, blink 3x
pause 4x, blink 1x pause 8x... Not like a plane that has a set pattern.
ALSO it was stationary and moving in what seemed to be a shape.. It
blinked the first time, then the second time it appeared to the left,
then the 3rd down, 4th right kind like a small circle or square, not
tremendously noticable but enough to get me excited as to what i was
seeing. I have a very tall tree in my yard that blocks some sky from my
view. The light appeared directly on the left side of the tree. My
smoke went out, I looked downward as I reached for my lighter when
suddenly a 'pure white fireball' appeared from the right side of the
tree (165deg SE) and shot right over the mountain and vanished (SW).
the fire ball was about 1/3 the size of the moon (HUGE)!!! I described
it to my mom as a giant METEOR!!! I'm not sure if the fireball
came from the first object or not, I was looking down for about 6
seconds when the fireball appeared from the same general spot in the
I wasnt going to post this but I thought I would look on this site to
see if anyone else saw this and was surprised to see that somebody from
OLIVER had seen something Very similar!!! On the same date but at 9:30
pm, where as my sighting was at 3:00 am!!!!! 2 GIANT METEORS in 1 day?
The sighting in OLIVER said they heard sound which I didnt hear, and my sighting had 2 anomalies.
3-Jun-2014, Kelowna, BC: (9:00 pm)
was sitting out on my front veranda watching the wind, rain, and
lightning storm when over the mountains to the west slightly to the
north, I noticed a very bright object with a sparkling trail starting
from like a funnel shape, but going vertically, and reflecting in the
sun that was visible under the storm clouds. It sat stationary for a
couple of minutes, then started gradually heading to the northwest. It
would have been over but very close to the top of the mountains just
past Okanagan lake to the west. I went and got binoculars and watched
it, and then thought to get my video camera. As it gradually
moved away, I have over 2 minutes of video, but every time I tried to
zoom in, it went out of focus, but to the naked eye was very sharp and
visible in the sky. It was clearly a roundish shape, and glowed
as bright as the sun. I had two other people from the house come out
and tell me that I was not seeing things, both of them non-believers,
but now they were unsure about that. I will try to view the video on my
smart tv to see if enlarged, it is any clearer. The object was
probably around 20-25 km's away when first viewed, so may have been
quite a large object.
8-May-2014, Victoria, BC: (10:30 pm)
the month of May 2014 I was standing outside of my apartment in
Victoria, BC waiting for a cab at approximately 10:30 PM. During my
wait on this clear night I was looking up at the various star clusters.
My eyes were drawn to one particular group of stars which were bright
enough to see quite well even though they were surrounding the area of
the sky where the moon was. After staring at this cluster for about a
full minute, one of these ĎStarsí started to move. This object went
from being stationary to moving vertically at a consistent rate of
speed and a consistent trajectory for about 3 seconds. After which the
object started to weave in a narrow slalom (or snake like) pattern.
This went on for about another 3 seconds. During this time the object
was dimming and re-illuminating with each swerve but at the same time
each re-illumination was getting weaker and weaker until the object
disappeared all together.
have been an aviation enthusiast all my life and my brother was an
airline pilot for 40 years so I have a better than the Ďaverage Joeí
understanding of flight characteristics. What I witnessed does not fit
the parameters of any aircraft I am familiar with therefore I deem this
sighting to be phenomenal in nature.
11-Jun-2014, Garden Bay, BC: (11:35 pm)
recently reported a sighting in the sky above Garden Bay B.C. on April
11 of this year. Last night June 11 my wife and I were outside in the
backyard enjoying the fireplace when we saw a light in the sky just
like the one we saw exactly two months ago to the day. This time it was
travelling from due West to East. The object was about one tenth of the
size of the moon and again there was absolutely no noise. As before
there was a full moon, but this time there were some clouds in the sky.
The object was at the same level as the clouds, as sometimes it would
be behind the clouds and then it was in front of them. For comparison,
earlier in the night a helicopter few over, the unmistakable sound and
the nav. lights made it obvious as to what it was. About 20 min. after
the object went out of sight we saw a satellite go by and the
appearance was totally different from the object that we saw earlier.
Garden Bay is across the Straight of Georgia and just south of CFB
Comox and just north Nanoose Bay and the Whiskey Golf Maritime testing
range, perhaps that could explain the strange objects in the sky at
night, I don't know? As before if anyone has an explanation as to what
this could be I would be thank full. In the mean time I will be
watching the skies more than ever.
25-Jun-2014, Squamish, BC: (11 pm)
believe I'm posting this but I know what I saw and I'm wondering if
there was anyone else in the Squamish area that saw the same in the
At around 11pm, June 25/14 N/E Squamish I looked out my kitchen window
to see this object in the sky. I knew immediately it was not a
star/comet or a planeÖ..as the lights were red/green/white and hovering
in one location. It would stay at one spot then would jut up and down,
then would quickly flutter from side to side. I have a stabilizing set
of binoculars - so it wasn't me shaking or moving around! I watched it
with my binoculars for 20 min till it moved north over the mountain
top. I really wanted to try and find some explanation of what this
object was? Did anyone out there see the same???
29-Jun-2014, Vancouver, BC:
(June 29th 2014) I was sitting in my car looking into the sky and I
noticed 6 small white dots moving in the sky, they were in a kite shape
moving very slowly and then after about 5 minutes slowly moved in a V
shape. They were moving extremely slow and were slightly smaller
than stars. I saw this around 4:00 and the sky was completely
clear where I was. I know they weren't stars because they were too
small and they were moving. I lost sight of them after I watched
them for a few minutes and then they were gone. I would like an
explanation of what I saw if possible, as it is the weirdest thing I
have ever seen.
Summer 2007, Armstrong, BC:
was walking down my street late at night. It was summer, maybe August
2007, and the sky was exceptionally clear. I was admiring the stars
when I noticed what I thought was an unusually bright satellite. It was
a steady, clear white light about half a centimeter in diameter, and it
was making its way across the sky from just behind my left shoulder to
my right. I thought it was a satellite because it had an appropriately
slow pace, it seemed very high up and didn't have any of the flashing
lights that accompany an airplane. I watched it as it made its
way towards the centre of the sky above my head, and right at its apex
it stopped dead. I stopped on the side walk and watched it. It stood
perfectly still right above me for about ten seconds, then it became
slightly larger and brighter, as if it were coming closer to me. Then
it slowly moved in a straight line backwards and forwards over my head,
sometimes speeding up, sometimes slowing down, never moving more then
about a hands breadth at arms length away from its previously
stationary position in either direction. It moved backwards and
forwards as if observing me for about 45 seconds, and just when I was
really becoming uneasy it shot at a slight angle up into the sky and
disappeared. I told my boyfriend about it a couple days later and he
told me that he and his father had seen the exact same thing at the
same time that night.
7/8/9-July-2014, Kootenay Lake, BC: (10:30 - 11:30 pm)
events over three nights East shore Kootenay Lake directly across from
Kokanee Glacier. All three nights were warm and dry with either
no clouds or a couple small ones. There was no haze, the air is dry so
clarity is good. There was an approximate half moon and it was
night all three of us were on the lake shore star gazing and looking
for satellites to watch. We started to see satellites pretty
frequently almost right away. Soon my daughter mentioned that she
was seeing bright flashes in the sky to the south. Turning our
attention to the south we all started to see them. This was not
lightening, planes, or any satellite (tumbling or geosynchronous)...no
flight path pattern was evident. The lights seemed too random, but
uniformly bright white and would flash for the same duration. In
each case they would go on and off like a flashbulb. In all we
saw approximately twelve before calling it a night.
The last two were a little more significant. I had seen three in
the same place over about five minutes and the fourth I saw in the same
place. At the same time my wife and daughter saw another one
directly west of us high in the sky. I used the binoculars to
look at the same point in the sky to the south I had been seeing them
and asked my wife and daughter to do the same in case I had to adjust
the view. I had been looking in the spot for about a minute when
one of what I thought was a star (since it was stationary and about as
bright as a medium bright star) suddenly zipped of at immense speed
away and out of view...faster than any satellite I have observed.
We saw one more flash the next night and then three more in quick
succession the night after that. These sightings were more in the
west and directly west of us high in the sky.
I have seen flashes in the night sky on numerous occasions over the
years since I like to watch the sky. I have even seen two before
in rapid succession in the same area of sky before, but nothing like
this. In those other instances I was in the Fraser Valley and
even though it was clear the light pollution and air pollution affects
clarity of viewing.
All this makes me wonder why there are not more reports on this
matter. Has anyone tried a time lapse video to check for
anomalies? Has any Astronomer checked into these?
