1-Apr-2016, Salmon Arm, BC: (11:51 pm)
11:51pm thereabouts in April 1st we (4 of us) witnessed a bright
yellowish light that looked like a flare travelling from the east to
the south. It was brighter than anything else in the sky. It looked as
though it was a very bright flare but huge and eventually started
heading off to the south while trying to get pictures of it
unfortunately all of our pictures look like you're bright moon because
we couldn't get a Camera aperture that could take an exposure that
would register it properly. We have one picture that gives a little bit
of the flair to it and also had a trail behind it and it was nothing
like any of us who are very avid stargazers for fun have ever seen
before. Extremely strange. Over salmon arm bc.
2-Apr-2016, Surrey, BC: (6:10 to 6:30 pm)
Daylight/Clear. I noticed a very bright light coming from the west,
towards me (East). The bright light was extremely high in altitude.
Probably around 50-60,000 thousand feet in elevation. The object was a
small as a star doubled in size and was shimmering. I watched it as it
got closer. It kept it's elevation approximately the same as it was in
my view. The object's speed seemed at a steady pace but not fast.
I told my partner what I was seeing and he looked up and saw it too. I
went into the house and brought out my binoculars. The object now was
going left, towards the north. It then hovered. I was able to see the
object fairly clearly. I saw a round shaped ring. The ring was a dark
silver colour that was spinning counter clockwise very fast. Above the
spinning ring looked like numerous bright gold flames of light shooting
upwards. I could see spaces in-between each section of the gold lights.
The inside top of the ring was a dark thin layer of black. What amazed
me was the ring was spinning but the gold bright flame lights were not.
Just the ring below it was spinning, while the bright gold lights were
monetary in movement.
passenger airplane then flew underneath it at it's approximately
30-35,000 feet. I then saw the two objects compared to each other and
realized how large this UFO actually would be. It would be roughly the
size of a stadium or football field.
6:15pm- I called our local news radio and reported it.
I called our local R.C.M.P. and reported it. I was then transferred to
another officer to repeat what I was seeing. They seemed to be
extremely interested on what was happening.
I videotaped the object with my cell phone and was able to get a few
seconds of footage. The UFO was now traveling eastward. It then looked
like it went higher and went out of view. A few seconds later, it came
back into view and continued eastward for about six seconds then went
out of view completely.
I received a call from the R.C.M.P. They wanted to come over and talk
more on what I had seen. They arrived within minutes and interviewed me
on what I had seen. They created a file and I received a file number on
this was, it was not a weather balloon, satellite or plane. The
altitude was too high for any object like that to travel through. Also
the pattern was too indifferent to be a regular craft that we know.
Also, it was too slow to be any type of comet, specially when viewed
through the binoculars, it was not asteroid material.
3-Apr-2016, Vancouver, BC: (1:30 to 2:00 am)
am up reading and looked out my window at 1:30 am .....it is now 2:00am
and I still see the lights in the same place....hovering over Vancouver
BC. The lights are pinkish and a very light whitish blue. They
seem to pulsate and expand at times so the circle looks bigger.... At
times it seems like the circle is stretched like an elastic band.
It seems closer at times and distant at others.
It is still there. Has anyone else reported?
4-Apr-2016, Ladner, BC: (11 pm)
a bright orange orb like a fireball in the sky moving slowly over a
field near the entrance to the Massey Tunnel. Stopped the car and
watched it with my daughter for a few minutes, then kept our eyes on it
the rest of the drive home until the road turned away. Got my husband
and came back out to find it again but it had gone. Very curious!!
1-Apr-2016, Surrey, BC: (9:00 pm)
was looking towards the south when I saw a tear-drop shaped object
travelling from the east. The rounded front was a blue colour, the
middle third was a maroon colour and the tail was orange! Very strange.
After a few seconds it just disappeared.
6-Apr-2016, Surrey, BC: (12:45)
were outside when my boyfriend noticed something in the sky, saying
"What is that? It can't be a plane or helicopter." It got closer. It
obviously wasn't [a plane or a helicopter]. It was way too small and
low. It had a bright orange light.
3-Apr-2016, Coquitlam, BC: (12:39 am)
Saturday April 2 a few friends and I were at the local pub named
Roose... We came outside to have a cigarette, when one of my friends
says what is that!!!?!? I look up in the sky and immediately think it's
a nice big shooting star because of the speed it was flying at. Then I
noticed that it came under the clouds and levelled out and continued
flying with a slight right turn and disappeared off in the distance.
Both my friend and I looked at each other in shock when we realized we
both saw the same thing. It looked like a ball of light or a big orb
about the size of a 747, maybe a bit smaller, but it was hard to tell
at night, but I'm judging from the distance of the clouds. Did anybody
else see this?
7-Apr-2016, Victoria, BC: (9:18 pm)
live a few blocks away from the ocean at Dallas Road in Victoria BC, in
a south-facing apartment. Me and my girlfriend were relaxing on my
couch tonight, when I noticed an orange light rising into the sky in
the distance. The colour alone caught my attention, seeming different
from the usual airplane lights, but then we noticed another similar
light following below it and then another. After a few seconds of
movement, all three came to a stop and hovered for about a minute,
resting in a wedge formation, then disappeared one after the other. I
got the impression that there were three separate vessels as opposed to
a single large craft. I got it on video with my phone, but the quality
is pretty bad as my phone's camera is not good in low light conditions.
Neither of us had ever seen anything like that before.
March 1992, between Rutland and Beacerdell, BC: (evening)
of all this experience was so long ago the date is extremely
approximate. It has bothered me for a long time and having just found
this site, I was eager to share my experience. I used to travel
regularly through Rutland on hwy 33 to Rock Creek and return as part of
my job. One evening while returning towards Rutland from Rock Creek I
encountered something very odd along a very desolate road. Traffic was
near non-existent, but at one point I saw a very intense glow of light
which appeared off in the distance. It didn't appear to be airborne,
but rather on the ground and covering a large area. This was a winding
section of this mountainous highway so the glow would occasionally be
obstructed. I believed the light was coming from an area that I
believed was uninhabited. I was so perplexed and was trying to
comprehend what it was as I was approaching closer to the apparent
source when suddenly and without warning I lost all power in my car.
The engine died and every dash light illuminated. I had just enough
time to panic when the dash lights went out and then just as suddenly I
was again under full power! At this point I am very concerned, still
wondering what the light is coming from but also suddenly concerned for
my vehicle condition. Well maintained, fairly new and no history of
problems and the situation never replicated itself. Pretty freaked out
at this point and no way was I going to stop and try to figure out the
light source. As I passed the general area of the light I would
estimate the light was possibly a kilometre or two off road in what
appeared to be heavy woods although I never actually saw it, just the
glow. I was now beyond the light and watched in my rear view mirror
until it was no longer in my field of vision. Trying to rationalize
what it was and I couldn't. Thought maybe Ski hill night skiing but
drove the highway many times and never saw it before or since.
9-Apr-2016, Cloverdale, BC: (9:50 pm)
evening at approximately 9:50 pm I saw a strange object in the sky
traveling west to east. I just moved into the cloverdale area with my
family and was taking a break on the front porch and saw a ball of
bright white light about the size of a tictac held at a distance. It
was much larger and brighter than any of the surrounding stars. It
traveled west to east and vanished overhead, like just disappeared. The
light didn't blink like a plane, or have a trail like something burning
up in the atmosphere, it was solid and very bright. I thought it might
have been the quad copter I saw 2 days prior but that had flashing red
and green lights. This was nothing like that.
I've seen a lot of things in the night sky, but never something like that.
29-Mar-2016, Langford, BC: (10:30 pm)
took my dogs for a walk up behind my house in a dark field. I happened
to look up in a south west direction and I saw what I believe was a low
flying cloaked ship. The sighting only happened for about 3 seconds, it
came into view on my left and then disappeared. The only thing you
could see were what I believed to be the propusion system? They
were about 5-7 purple and faint pink chevrons. They appeared the
be seamless and did not independently move. It was absolutley silent
and moving in a east to west direction. It was about 30M off the ground
and moving about 60-80 kmh.
20-Apr-2016, North Vancouver, BC: (11:30 pm)
noticed the very bright light about 11:30pm. I recognized it as I saw
and reported it earlier this month. I live in North Vancouver. I am
looking south. It moved very slowly across the sky...like the speed
would be a crawl at times and almost stop. I could tell it was moving
because it passed clouds. It also was closer at times and then would
rise. It disappeared above the clouds for awhile. It is back again but
more distant now and stationary. There is a full moon. It seems to be
light pink and pale blue lights when it is closer and more like a
bright white light as it moves to a higher position. It is still there
now 12:40am - stationary and distant.
29-Apr-2016, Surrey, BC: (10 pm)
am interested to know if any other people in Surrey saw what I saw last
night at approximately 10:00 pm on a southeast to northwest trajectory.
night (Friday, April 29th) at about 10:00 pm., I happened to look out
our back window and saw 2 bright objects in the sky approaching our
house at a slight angle.
continued to watch from the window trying to understand what I was
seeing. They were at the same height and basically side by side with
some good but undefineable distance between them. They were very orange
in color with some slight hint of red. As they approached I was
wondering what they were as they made no sound and looked like 2
independent flames in the sky. They were coming as if 2 slow flying
aircraft until they came to a complete stop in the sky above and
slightly in front of me. Their height I could not determine, but at
this point they appeared the size of nearby street lights, so they were
fairly easy to see. However, their appearance was still like burning
flames in the sky, and very bright. I was trying to distinguish a form
within the flame and went for my binoculars. When I returned there was
only one remaining in the sky in the same spot. It looked exactly the
same through binoculars and was impossible to see any form within the
bright fire appearance. It sat there for a while longer and then faded
with a slight fragmenting appearance as the light went dark.
have had occasion in my 68 years to see occasional ufos at some
distance, and in a field outside of Edmonton, Alberta many years ago,
but nothing gets your attention like 2 flaming objects stationary in
the sky before you, and large enough to see that they cannot be defined.
would love to hear back on this and particularly from anybody else who
saw the same thing. I should add, that strangely, there were no visible
aircraft or sounds of aircraft anywhere else in the vicinity at the
time. I say this because we seem to be pretty much on a flightpath all
day and night, and the sky isn’t usually devoid of aircraft or the
sounds of same for very long, and I was watching them for probably
about 10 minutes.
30-Apr-2016, North Vancouver, BC: (9:40 pm)
My wife and I stepped out on our back deck only to see multiple silent bright glowing orange spheres moving from east to west to the south of us. The main
cluster moved out of view but a few more kept coming for few more
minutes. I took a couple shots on my phone and a short video. I own a
pair of image stabilizer binoculars and they looked like small bright
suns with a solid glow.
4-May-2016, Nanaimo, BC: (2 am)
was on my normal route home, a route that I take almost every week
night. I have to cut between two hills along a path to get from one
part of town to another. Usually I ride my bike but that day I was
dropped off at work by my roommate and he was asleep so I had to walk
was walking up the foothill and as I came to the top I seen these two
lights (steady white not blinking) going in a straight line along the
horizon. I thought it was a plane at first because they kept the same
distance between them. All of the sudden, as I was trying to figure out
what they were... they made an abrupt under 90-degree turn at the exact
same time and started travelling diagonal to the horizon. They kept on
like that until they disappeared behind some clouds or trees in the
was very strange, there was no noise or eary feeling with it, just the
fact they changed their travel path so quickly I knew it wasn't an
5-May-2016, Prince George, BC: (about 8:30 pm)
of all I am very far up in one of the tallest buildings in town, and I
have very large windows overlooking half the city, keep this in mind.
was laying down on the floor about to play with one of my cats when I
glanced up out the window and saw something big traveling through the
sky with what seemed to be a very unusual jetstream, it seemed to jump
out in places like sparks, or swirling energy blots. The other thing
that caught my attention, is the jet stream dissipated almost instantly
and the craft could change speed at will, going from incredibly fast to
slow enough to turn 60 degrees and veer nearly overhead as it went past.
make no claims other than this as to what I saw, I have my ideas on
what this was but it could have been many things so I just don't know -
military test jet?/spaceship?/ufo?/cosmic beings from a higher
dimension? Maybe. Confused meteor going the opposite direction?
7-May-2016, Kelowna, BC: (1:10 am)
and my brothers where looking at the stars and right beside Leo a
flourescent boomerang-shaped UFO went gliding by slow and clear as day.
We where sceptical at first but nothing else could explain what it was.
7-May-2016, Abbotsford, BC: (10:15 pm)
Saturday night in Abbotsford I took my dog for a quick walk around the
block at 10pm. As I was looking up at the stars I noticed a star which
is what it looked like, but a lil brighter than usual. I then noticed
it moving at a mediocre pace, then it then began moving in a strange
wavey pattern, moving backwards, forwards, up and down, eventually it
began staying in one spot and then began to do tiny clockwise and
counter clockwise circles. I ended up watching this for an hour as it
was strangely doing these maneuvers, very strange don't know what it
could of been maybe something of ours in space maybe... But the
distance it covered and the maneuvers it was doing in that short period
of time were very strange. I called my mom and sister outside to check
this werid light out and to make sure I wasn't tripping but they
watched with me too and got freaked out. Lol, that was one of the
weirdest things that I ever seen going on in the night sky.
13-May-2016, Victoria, BC: (10:10 pm)
was near Thetus Lake tonight when I saw a large star like object flying
South West from me, at extremely fast speeds. It was bigger, and
brighter then your average star, but with a similar hue to it. It
looked to be flying at a height just outside of Earth. It was not as
fast as a comet, but much faster then anything I know of that people
can fly. I watched it fly towards me from the northeast, and it was
heading to the southwest direction. This experience lasted until it
flew out of my sight range, about 15-20 seconds. I wish I had my cell
phone at the time, but I know it wouldn't do it near any justice
compared to actually seeing it. It maintained a solid light, with no
blinking. Did anyone else see this??
24-May-2016, Victoria, BC: (11:00 am)
and my friend walk to the exterior gym in the park for a little work
out suddenly I see something in the sky that was not normal. A long
light ( like a neon light) brighter than anything else was glowing and
started moving slowly toward east and vanished??? Usually I don\\\'t
believe In that stuff but... This thing can not be from here.. It was
massive. Like couple kilometer long
29-May-2016, Victoria, BC: (2:20 am)
was walking up a hill and it was parallel to the ocean and on the other
side you can see the mainland. I saw a huge orange flare directly ahead
of me on the horizon It was coming from the ground very wide and went
very high up in the sky. Kinda like the shape of a flame from a lighter
or candlestick. When I first saw it I thought a nuke just hit Seattle.
It lasted for about 2-3 minutes then it kinda turned into a big giant
orange moon (I am confident it wasn't the moon since it shouldn't have
been in that location at that time) and then the clouds started to
I'm sure it was just a military test from the US. But I would be curious to be able to figure out what it is.
Mid-Nov-2014, Parksville, BC:
I witnessed two strange consecutive phenomena late one evening (actually, early morning I think).
While sitting on my back patio having a cigarette, I noticed a very
bright white light starting to travel across the sky from south to
north. There were a number of strange things about this light:
1) as it traveled across the sky, it maintained a consistent brightness from end to end
2) it became (somewhat) v-shaped as it traveled. i.e. the
back end widened (like a contrail) as the object moved, without losing
brightness or definition.
3) the edges were (and remained) clean and well-defined
4) the front was round and of the same brightness and definition as the rest of the trail
5) continuing the contrail comparison, this thing was about 100 times wider (at least) than your standard jet contrail
I didn't notice it fade away, disappear, whatever; because of the
second phenomena that occurred a few minutes later (5 minutes as a
1) this was a bright, bright yellow light traveling west to east
at treetop level. Some of it was behind the treetops, some of it above.
The distance of this light from where I was sitting might have been
about a city block.
2) again, consistent brightness and clean, well-defined edges
3) there was possibly a rumbling noise associated with this
light, but that might have been street traffic from the main drag a few
4) here's the really weird thing about this light; it didn't
fade.....it dissipated. Think of the light as being composed a
zillion tiny particles. The particles didn't fade away, they randomly
extinguished. Kind of a sparkle effect in reverse.
Anyhow, that's what I saw. I've been thinking about it ever since and still have no idea what is I saw.
31-May-2016, Vancouver, BC: (around midnight)
have a video I would love to send to you guys as well, it's about a
minute long. There were about 7 or 8 orb like lights, orange/red in
color hovering over the ocean over sunset beach. They were moving in
strange patterns, going up and down and back and forth. They were
incredibly bright and would rise up, very high and then fade out. Some
would sink low and fade out. The whole event went on for about 20
minutes with various orb like objects appearing, moving around the sky
in strange patterns and then fading out. Can't explain it and would
love someone to take a look at the video and let me know what they
think. It was truly breathtaking.
Mid-Feb-2016, Nanaimo, BC:
Hello I was on your recently added sighting page and I came across the sighting in Victoria (7-Apr-2016, Victoria. BC: (9:18 pm)).
I have seen this ALOT lately in Nanaimo! I noticed them in mid February
after I came home from work it got dark and I saw an orange light on
the horizon towards the harbour it was slowly hovering north then
another one appeared slowly beside it then another then they
disappeared in the same fashion. I see these lights often I can
distinguish the difference between planes coming in and these weird
orange-yellow orb lights. One night really has me weirded out: I was
staring at these lights (and this was the first night I saw them.) and
I was trying to get photos on my iphone but couldn't capture the orbs
in the dark from the distance I was at. But I noticed the orbs were
circling the city slowly and looked like they were hovering over the
town . No noise. Just hovering. It started around 9:30 and I they went
out of my view about 30 mins later. I first thought they may be drones
but drones are unsteady in wind and you can hear them. These were
noiseless and seemed to almost float across the sky all three of them.
I haven't seen them do that since February. But I periodically see them
over the horizon doing their strange dance.
2-Jun-2016, Vancouver, BC: (8:30 pm)
on porch notice black small single engine size airplane type aircraft
but not a airplane had no sound fly from over yvr headed straight line
towards surrey called my brother to make sure I wasn't seeing things.
had no sound and flew at one speed steadily across the sky was oddest
thing see so many aircrafts of different types but this was different.
definitely not first time seeing odd things in the sky flying around
11-Jun-2016, Surrey, BC: (11 pm)
was not witness to this personally, but my wife was. Around 11 pm as
she was about to retire for the evening on Saturday night, June 11,
2016, my wife observed a large spherical shaped craft with lights
around the periphery of the craft, visible through the evening’s thin
cloud cover as it hovered over Green Timbers forest in Surrey. She said
it appeared to be massive. It moved a little, but unlike any
conventional aircraft, then slowly ascended further, and further away
until it was no longer visible at all. By the time she alerted me to
what had happened it had disappeared altogether. We live on 101A Avenue
facing west toward 149th Street and toward Green Timbers Forest.
Curious to know if you had any other reports on this occurrence? FYI,
my wife does not drink, and does not do any drugs, so I believed her
when she told me what she saw.
for the report. I know the area quite well, and it is certainly an
interesting sighting. Does your wife think it could have been some type
of “quad copter” – however unlikely given the time of the day, there
have been reports of one flying around with LEDs on it, something like
it be possible to have your wife draw us what she saw – and perhaps
(time permitting) we could come and talk to you both in person?
for the reply. I showed her the video of the quad copter and she said
it was nothing like that at all. She said there were no red or green
coloured lights, only a slight yellow-ish green hue to them. The ring
was about the size of two city buses end to end across the middle so
maybe something like 80 feet across and really couldn’t see the top of
the craft due to the clouds. She said she wouldn’t even attempt to draw
it, because she can’t draw.
18-Jun-2016, North Vancouver, BC: (9:30 pm to 10:00 pm)
live in North Vancouver and from my balcony I have a view of the north
shore mountains particularly around Grouse Mountain. It was cloudy and
I was scanning the horizon to see if the weather was going to break. I
could see the mountains under the cloud cover. Suddenly I saw two red
orbs rise above the apartment building across from me. They appeared to
be following a path going up the side of the mountain. They initially
were in line one following the other. When they reached the top next to
Grouse they changed their position and were flying side by side and
started into the clouds. eventually they disappeared. As I was standing
there I noticed another wave of these red lights. There were four of
them this time and took the same route as the first two. They were in
single file and as they approached the top of the mountain they spilt
up and headed into the mountain. I had called my son to come and see
what was happening. We stood there watching and tried to figure what
they were. As they disappeared into the clouds another wave started up
the mountain. They were following the same route as those before. The
light were all uniform and were flashing intermittently. I was baffled.
This was the first time I had ever witnessed this. It has made me a
believer. Really don't know how to explain. Unfortunately I was unable
to get photos. But my son is my witness as I am his. Wow!
Do you think you are seeing Sky or Chinese Lanterns? They come is
various shapes, sizes and colours and are often released in groups.
Sadly they have become the de facto explanation for many lights in the
sky, as they often fly "in formation" and slowly move up, often
appearing motionless and then "disappear" (simply burn out). So as for
a mundane explanation, on the balance of probability, I do think this
may fit the bill.
as we did not see it, then ours is just an "educated" guess - the
ultimate take-away from this encounter we will leave up to you. Here is
