July-1981, Og Lake, BC

In 1981 (late July) my parents sent me to the YMCA summer Camp Chief Hector (near Canmore, AB).

We 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 pm)

I 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.

This occurred between 6:10-645pm approximately.



UFO*BC Responds:

Thank you for the sighting report - very nice pictures!

Could 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?


Dave Pengilly

Witness Responds:

Thanks 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 always there.

Judges Row

UFO*BC Responds:

OK. 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 appeared?

When 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 less sense.

Do you have a higher resolution image you could send us? Should be 3 - 5 meg in size?

Dave Pengilly

Witness Responds:

I 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.

I 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)

While 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.

At 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.

Shortly 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.

My 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.

Around 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 little earlier.

The 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.

When 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.

JULY 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 building.

UFO*BC 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 Park, BC

Hello 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.

If you look at the second picture you'll see both objects together above her head on the right.

It 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.


UFO*BC Responds:

Hello Art,

First, 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.

The 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.

As for the July 30 sighting, I will ask the person again for more information, especially the sighting location.

Thanks for the report.

I am sending some photos for you to examine. These were taken on Feb. 27th from a Vancouver office tower in the downtown core.

It 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 sky.

My 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 - see below.

For now, still a mystery!

At 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.

Was 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 possibilities.

I know what I saw and that was a muthafuckin alien ship.

I'm not quite sure what I saw to be honest. I am a skeptic when it comes to things like this...

On 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.

I'm curious now.

UFO*BC Responds:

Thank-you for the report.

I too am not sure what you may have seen. Could you possibly draw the object for us?

I 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?

Thanks, and looking forward to hearing from you,


Witness Responds:

I 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 for certain.

not a plane
