31-Dec-2016, Bowser, Vancouver Island, BC: (around midnight)
I am in bowser bc on vancouver island , we live on the beach with no street lights etc. very dark skies , it was 3 minutes after new years eve 2017 , i stepped outside for a cigarette and noticed a large bright red light , thinking it was a lingering firework i watched expecting it to fade away ! It did'nt it just hovered in one spot , shifting back and forth ip and down just slightly , then another came down on an angle towards it and the other started heading south down island guickly the second was bigger and brighter and they both had a half circle shape to them with red light emanating from the underneath, the second one stayed in one spot for about 4 minutes shifting slightly in all directions , then shot off really fast in the same direction as the first ! It was amazing to see i had no photo space left on my camera so no pictures or video but i will never forget scared me alittle though but i know they were ufos no doubt in my mind ! They were quite large as well !
1-Jan-2017, Victoria, BC:
My step-dad and I were on our front porch. This was at about 12:20am on January 1st or on New Year's Eve. Our house faces in a south/southeasterly direction , with Tillicum Elementary School directly across the street. As we looked into the sky my step-dad , Ken , saw the orb first. He quickly pointed out to me what he was seeing , the one orange orb. I pointed out the second orange orb , which was higher in the sky and closer to us. Only because Ken was still partially inside the front door was the reason he did not see the other orb. He leaned out and easily spotted the other one. These orbs were about the same size as a full moon. They were in close proximity to each other at first. They seemed about 250 yards apart and then the closer of the two started moving Northeast towards us. It was not at a fast pace but from the distance it started from I would guess about 100 - 150 km/h. The other orb moved away from us in an easterly direction , or towards Mt Tolmie. Since our focus was on the closer of the two I could not guesstimate the speed it was moving. In reflection I would guess they were probably moving at around the same speed. We were trying to figure out whether we were looking at flares , a chinese lantern or something else. Both of us knew they were not helicopters , planes or remote controlled flying objects because there was no noise , the height of the objects , the speed they were moving and the fact there were no other lights. The brightness of the light was stronger than anything else we have seen in the sky. The size of the orbs light was also kind of surprising because we could not make out the shape of the vehicle it was attached to. The closest orb continued towards us for about 10 -15 seconds and then the light simple disappeared. Our focus then went to the second orb which was still continuing in the same direction it started out on. Since it too had travelled for 10 - 15 seconds , it was only now starting to diminish in size. I was pretty sure each light had been about 1000 - 1500 feet high and around the same distance away from us , if not then maybe a little further away. The second light started to disappear and then reappear for two or three seconds each time , until on the third time it did not come back. We are wondering if anyone else had seen these two strange orange orbs on the same night ? Even though there may have been a few clouds in the sky , you were still able to see the stars through the clouds and these orbs were at least two or three times brighter than any stars. I do recall hearing a low oscillating sound that reminded me of an electrical current. I was not able to identify the sound but do recall it stopping when the orb coming towards us disappeared. Thank You for reading about our experience.

I understand why you may think that what we saw may of been lanterns but they were moving in different directions and the height we saw them at first was higher than any lantern I have ever seen. Also the one moving towards us did grow bigger. Not by a lot but the size was a lot larger than any man made lantern I have heard of. I also must concede the point you make concerning speed of an object against a black back drop. I can only wish I would of been on the ball enough to get a video of the event. Since that did not happen I can understand your skepticism and appreciate the conclusion of a rational answer but this was not an event that is easily explainable. We have gone over possible explanations at the time and have also tried to rationalize the event afterwards but are unable to put a rational explanation to what we witnessed. Once again I am apologizing for not having any evidence for you to view , which makes this next to impossible for you to see through our eyes. We are only sharing this with you in the hopes that it will coaberate someone else's sighting and hopefully a video to go along with what we saw.

I am here to report a UFO sighting in Chilliwack BC this evening, Jan 5, 2017 approximately 7:35pm PST.
It was a single orb, the colour of a glowing fire, so not quite red nor quite orange.
My daughter (25) and I were outside on her deck having a cigarette when I noticed it up in the sky and asked her “what the hell is that?”
We watched this orb from the downtown area of town (where it had just appeared in my sight) go in the direction of east south to east and up a bit then zigzagged west and lowered a bit and still going south. As it did this, it started to fade out/in/out until we no longer could see it. It was going fairly slow, almost stopped and bright. To slow to be a plane nor did it flash or change colour.
I must add that there was no sound, like you would here from a plane and I must also point out that there is a slight fog/ haze to the evening sky and a ring around the moon and no stars can be seen.
I’d like to know if anyone else saw it.

I'd say it "could have" resembled a Chinese wish lantern but at the same time i am not convinced it was. The size of the orb and the distance from us doesnt add up to one, although i do know they come in different sizes. It also did not flicker like one does.
The change in direction, the way it just appeared and the zigzagging then the disappearing after a breif fade has me thinking it wasn't.
Ty for replying though :-)
Ongoing, Pemberton, BC:
I don't have much excitement tonight other than stuff I have seen most of the time I have lived the last 5 years in pemberton. I now have witnesses and other people who can varify my stories that other people will never believe. Most nights I love to lay out and look at the stars in a small town to find no street lights or other distractions. In the last 2 years I have seen a lot more recent activity. I watch the constellation patterns move and satellites that usually have a predictive or consisting movement. Lately they have been more of bright lights closer and further in rapid movement. Erratic with change of directions, up down, sides, and branching off of 4 or 5 and coming back together. The single star ( ufo/satellite /something else) usually has an orb. It starts lime a big sparkle that I try to conclude to 'sparkle planets in our atmosphere) but they can't be. The movement of them becomes very unudual where 4 branch out, move quickly and come together. It is usually bright then gene and orange ords and a red/orange orb that comes right back but moving erratic. ( up down sideways) I don't always talk about it anymore unless some one brings it up and I don't even question the same description. Tonight I saw something move from O Ryans belt (constalation) back and in front in half 20 min as no other planets/stars/satellite had moved that quickly then came cak with a red followed. Anyhoo.......I see them quite often here most nights. I have other witnesses now that are usually skeptics. I think we are a hot spot. I hope this particular write up won't be posted publicly but would love to share some feedback or insight or work I can do also. I'm in a science field so I try to think of other possibilities but I cannot deny what I have seen my whole life , and more recently. With skeptics now that can't deny what they saw. I have always been witness but now there is no denial something is going on in this little town. I would love to learn more.

I was on the edge of a large open field in a park outside of an arena in Chilliwack BC. I was throwing a ball in the dark for my dog and looking up at a very large and bright-appearing Venus in the SWW sky. It looked massive.
After standing in the same spot for several minutes, I noticed three very odd shapes moving left to right along the trail at the opposite side of the large field I was facing, emitting many faint lights and possibly also partially reflecting some light irregularly and intermittently. My mind immediately put these three moving transparent-seeming light-emitting, plastic like shapes as two people on bikes, both wearing odd LED wired jackets or suits, and with the front rider having a matching similar light box or kite box forty feet above him as though on stilts . The three light shapes moved left to right in unison at about the speed of steady riding. The shapes had no clear shape or edge but were a group of faint and organic light zones. The lights inside were moving about, never static, and never in any apparent order. The overall shapes seemed to go from rectangle-ish to long vertical ovals like 2-dimensional amoebas with soupy organic light emitting liquid inside.
They started out moving left to right in unison on the ground along the trail, with two on the ground and the third about 40 feet above the front one, oddly. I wondered what the heck kind of contraption these people had made with their bikes and why. There was a hill behind them which is how I knew they were close. It was about 70 yards to the trail at the other side of the field which ran along the bottom of the hill.
About five seconds after these dramatic-looking light bodies appeared the front one appeared to turn up a hill, speeding up, continuing left to right but 45 degrees up the hill. I imagined a bike riding up a trail fast but could not see any detail of the hill because it was a dark night. The oddly bright light kite connected somehow forty feet above it also went up the hill. The second orb or light emitting thing on the ground seemed to slow down in relation to the front one, but it then suddenly followed and they regained unison. The back yards of houses line the top of the hill, and the light things seemed to slow down at the first house reached at the top of the hill. After this brief slow down, the light things all rise up above the house, still moving slightly to the right, and first ground level light thing rose to the tops of the very tall trees that seemed to line the top of the hill. It was at this point that I knew these were not oddly lit-up bikes and organic-looking LED light boxes. I couldn't make sense of this at all. They were now all tall vertical ovals with no clear borders but instead shapes made out by organic soupy-like starlight inside. Colours may have been blue, white, and some yellow. They were muted, mostly white and blue. These objects were very pronounced and noticeable in the dark night but each seemed transparent with dark space mixed with the lights. Each light was not bright alone, but there were many slight moving intermittent lights. Together the effect was striking. My eyes stayed with the highest one as they all sped up in unison in and above the trees. Once they reached the end of the field (heading north), they turned NEE as though following the shape of the field and sped up, seeming to float over the roofs of a new line of houses. At this point when they sped up, my dog barked. I'm not actually certain that she was barking at them or at my focus on and my reaction to them. It seemed at the time like she was barking at them. They disappeared over the houses.
About 3 minutes later, a plane came over flying in a straight line west to east, and a moment later a somewhat faint shooting star flew north to south near Venus. During this time, bright house spotlights turned on in the yard where they had first reached the top of the hill, slowing down briefly. I suspected people in that noise had also seen this and came out to investigate. These were probably motion sensor lights that were triggered by the people after but apparently not by the orb things.
There was no unusual sound although it was cold and I had my jacket hood on. There were no smells. No unusual feelings, energy, sensation etc. I do not believe in aliens etc. but I can't explain what these objects or phenomena were. They were not subtle at all. I was clear headed, not tired etc. The whole thing lasted about a minute from suddenly appearing and finally zipping away as though floating in the wind.
Middle Summer (2016??), Kewlona, BC:
Hello, I am watching Discovery Science (SCI), The "Corina Saebels" story, in 1991. It is 5:00pm Friday night Feb. 10, 2017.
At the time I was living in a mobile home trailer park in Lakeview Hieghts at the foot of Boucherie Mountain, in Kelowna, BC. It was the middle of summer, late in the evening, maybe 3:00 am ish. I was sitting on my front lawn enjoying the night sky.
I was looking toward Westbank, it was a completely clear, stary sky night. When I noticed 3 bright stars over the westbank mountains. I had never noticed them before. The 3 stars where brighter than anything around them and stood out quite convincingly. The 3 stars formed a perfect triangle, which I thought was quite interesting. As I watched, all 3 stars started to move as one complete unit...A giant star triange with nothing but the black night sky inside of the triangle. The triangle move up and down and then side to side as if one complete entity. It was amazing! I was fascinated. I watched for several minutes. Then to my astonishment, the 3 stars suddenly broke apart from the perfect triangle image and each shuddered violently, and zoomed off in 3 seperate directions, at an incredible speed. Only to completely dissappear!
I have know idea what I saw that night, however this episode jogged my memorie!
Have you had anyone else send you anything like my description? The whole incident has confirmed to me that we are not alone!
