Coquitlam, BC: (10:35 pm)
My dad (I'm 20), my
sister, my friend and I were driving home and when we were turning into
our complex we noticed 6 red lights in the sky. They were to the west
of us and were in a vertical V formation. We knew it was weird because
even my dad didn't know what they were and still doesn't. They elevated
slowly in synchronization. Maybe they were attached. If they were, the
object would be the size of at least a football field. The lights
slowly pulsated, never going out or changing colour and after a minute
the top three disappeared or went out and a few minuets after that the
others were too. There was no sound at all and the sky was completely
clear. The lights which slightly looked like orbs were easily 5 times
the size of a star in comparison, probably bigger. Please contact me if
there is any information on this.
Ridge, BC: (about 8:30 pm)
Myself and my
girlfriend were sitting at the table finishing up a late dinner. Her
son was sitting on the couch watching tv. Something caught the corner
of my eye through the open window. We do have a fair amount of small
air traffic due to they fly over our place, but this was no small air
craft or helicopter. This really orange, purply orb with no beacon or
white lights came from the west to the east. We turned off the tv and
stuck our heads out the window to hear any noise - nothing at all. It
came to a stop - usually aircraft when they turn it looks like they
come to a stop and then u can see the lights again but this stopped for
about 40-50 sec and then a normal plane came from the north east
towards it and it slowly went to the north almost like to avoid
distance in between them and then faded off to the north.
Vancouver, BC: (about 10 pm)
I have been watching
this thing flashing lights for weeks now, in the Western sky off
Vancouver, Canada. The first time I saw it, there were three
large red lights, then they turned white, then back to red. At first, I
thought it was maybe a jet or large plane in distress because it was so
low and the lights were huge and bright. But, it didn't move, it just
hovered. Then the lights started changing colours from red, to white,
to blue, to green, all while sort of pulsating in a string This
first time I noticed it, I thought the shape to be triangular, but now
I am not sure. Sometimes it seems triangular and sometimes more round
or oval. But the lights flash and pulsate and on this first
occasion, when I thought it was a plane, the white lights flashed on
and off quickly several times before pulsating different colours.
On this occasion it was incredibly huge and the lights were really
bright. I have been watching for the past three weeks or so and
it is sometimes closer and sometimes farther away, but always different
coloured lights flashing or pulsating; green, blue, red, (and I thought
sometimes more purple), but always the same. It hovers. I have five
minutes of video on my cellphone, from that first night and you can see
the different coloured lights and the blinking white lights all while
it just hovers. I have been watching it through binoculars and through
a small telescope. It is not there every night, but most nights. I
think, whatever I am seeing, is really huge in size. As a typical
skywatcher, I see things in deep space all the time, but what I have
been watching for the past few weeks is right up close and personal in
our atmosphere. I will continue to watch it and try to get more
footage, but I do have my 5+ minutes on my cellphone.
Vancouver, BC: (11:45 am)
July 31st was a
clear sunny day in Kerrisdale. At 1145 hours I was standing at
the bus stop on the South side of 41st Avenue and Yew when I happened
to glance upwards in the sky over the top of the Scotia Bank building
across the street.
I saw two orange
spheres floating in the sky which, I calculated, were at a distance of
at least several blocks away from where I was situated. My
initial assumption was that they must be balloons and I glanced
away. After I thought about it for several seconds my gaze then
returned to the objects and I wondered why balloons would be in that
vicinity. I then realized that the spheres did not appear to act
balloon-like as they appeared shiny, as if reflecting the sun. The
sphere on the left suddenly disappeared while the sphere on the right
slowly started moving horizontally to the west. Unfortunately, my bus
arrived and I lost sight of the ufo.
This is the first
time I have seen such phenomena in the daylight -- how totally
BC: (8:30 pm)
Standing outside on
my back stairs, my friend pointed up to a white light slowly moving
silently in the sky heading south. I moved up to the deck to get a
better look when within seconds the craft came to a complete stop and
made a zigzag pattern that conventional craft could not make. It then
headed west behind the trees but not before the single white light
turned into bright flashing green and red lights. My roommate was
thinking it could have been someone with a radio controlled toy but
when it went behind the trees it was rather large. It moved effortless
and precisely in its movement. The lights were very bright so I am sure
more than just my roommate and I saw the craft.
5/7-Sep-2013, Lillooet, BC:
partner and myself were in the Lillooet area on these dates. We've been
doing some star and sky watching lately and have seen some really
unusual things. First one was around 10:30 on the same day as the
Squamish sighting (Sep 5, 2013) and I know we were looking exactly in
that direction [south towards Squamish].
saw the usual satellites, meteorites and so on, then a bright flash,
the size of say of a dime or fingernail at arm's length. That was all.
Very bright then gone. I thought maybe an exploding star. But it was
coincidently on the same day and same direction and a couple hours
later than the Squamish one.
on Saturday night (Sep 7, 2013) we were more serious and were laying on
the trampoline with pillows and blankets. It's a remote location, no
light pollution so the sky is very bright and visible. Once again we
saw the usual things. After about maybe 2 hours probably 10.30 -
11, my partner said, "WHATS THAT?", in a north-west /mostly north
direction there was this really bright and large white light. I thought
rectangular shape maybe what would seem like 3 inches in the sky, quite
a long way up. It was about say 75 degrees from horizontal just over
this mountian skyline. Was moving from left to right from westerly
direction to a somewhat easterly direction, then all of a sudden it
changed from this white shape, to a much dimmer narrower but about the
same length shape, but seemed to have a few light spots along it. A
much more defined shape. It continued to move in that direction and
went behind these trees on the hillside which were closer to us. We
waited for it to come out from behind the trees, but it didn't happen.
It must have changed direction, possibly when it went behind the trees.
No noise, no other colors, no jittery movements and we didn't see it
22-Sep-2013, Inland Island Highway, near Spider Lake, BC: (just after 11 pm)
bright orange light then a second appeared to the west. We thought they
may be flares for a search over spider lake or something near there but
realized they were moving above the scattered clouds and actually back
lit the lower clouds as they moved slowly across the sky. I thought
they were far too high to be useful search lights and much brighter
than approaching airliner headlights. They first appeared to be
stationary then slowly moved horizontally in a south or south easterly
direction and did not appear to descend.
the lights went out and were replaced by a series of smaller blue white
lights that appeared to dart about. These then blinked out as well,
possibly behind clouds that were no longer made visible by the brighter
orange lights earlier. The moon was shining to the east back lighting
the clouds as well but not nearly as intense or with an orange light.
There were lots of cars travelling and we wondered if others filed
other reports, or if there was a search or something going on in the
23-Oct-2013, Vancouver, BC: (7:30 pm)
husband, myself and our 2 children were coming back from my mother in
law's place and we were walking on Mclean towards Adanac street when we
turned up the alley and as we were getting closer to my mother's. My
husband noticed a white light just hovering over one of the buildings
on the Venables side and he asks me ''honey what is that?" and i said
''a plane i think" but then i did a double take and said ''no way thats
not a plane". He said he figured that much already so we stopped and
just watched it. Then it started slowly moving straight and the
direction was the opposite way we were going. As it was moving we could
see the white lights going around the smallest part on the bottom and
at first we thought that was the size of it but as it was directly
above us you see this black shape moving against the the clear blue
night sky. This thing was huge! The whole time it was moving slowly
above us I was so scared that all of a sudden a beam of light would
just shoot down on us and beam us up like on that old episode of the
simpsons lol. Also at first we couldn't see the size of it because it
was like it was trying to camouflage itself with the sky but the sky
being clear and blue out we could notice there was a subtle
difference in the sky while it was moving and the lights weren't all
over it just at the smallest part on the bottom which kind of reminded
me of the bottom of blimp and in place of the balloon part there was
huge circular disc and there was absolutely no sound at all that was
made while it was moving.
27-Oct-2013, Fruitvale, BC: (11 pm - 1 am)
So I was outside one evening having a smoke and watching some videos on
my laptop while sitting on my porch. When I saw this object in the
night sky fly overhead that appeared round shaped with all of the
different lights of different colors around what appeared the outside
of this craft. The brightest lights were the 3 on the bottom of this
object. It went by in silence and hovered above the mountain. I stood
outside for about an hour watching it. Thinking it maybe was some sort
of plane, I wanted to see if it would just vanish off into the
distance, which it never did. It stopped above the mountain and was
there for quite sometime only dimming slightly then revealing a super
bright white light that was a lot more noticeable then the rest of the
stars. I gauged where it was in the sky from the point I was standing.
1:00am: Out of curiosity I went back outside for another smoke and the
bright light that was once in the gauged area was no longer in the same
location in the sky. It shifted. Closer towards me this time so it was
more apparent this bright light was not a star at all. The distance
this object had shifted was something that was so easy to notice. When
I look at it, it appears as if it's 2 or 3 stars in one since it's so
bright and it doesn't appear round like a single star or light would.
I'm not sure what it is.
Mid-September, Vancouver, BC:
have captured a UFO over the city of Vancouver that was identified as
one that travels thru dimensions! It is in 1Santori's YouTube video
called NEW: ALIEN SHIP IDM vs IDDM, our names are Ryan C. Rope and
Edward Gerris! We have also capture another inmate of something round
and huge blocking out the night sky with what appears to be a red scan,
I captured it at night, facing a crescent moon! That morning, my
roommate Edward and I awoke only to discover a swollen eye the said he
sustained while dreaming of being gun-butted in the eye by a military
officer! We also woke up to find identical marks on our upperchest,
except his was on the opposite side of mine on relation to how we
sleep! We don't know what to make of it and I wish I could send the
images I'm speaking of, but, there isn't anyplace so far that I've
found on this site that would allow me to send them! If there is a way,
could you please direct me to where I can send said images. The Calgary
Sun picked up the story and published the image on their Facebook page
as with I! I would suggest you check out that video I directed to you
until you see the actual images! That's for your time and hope to hear
from you soon! Ryan C. & Edward G.
Before 2000, Surrey, BC:
I was just watching Corina on the space channel, "the ufo story".
have seen a blue almost fluorescent color perfectly round ball. This
was 15 years or more ago. I was walking alone on approximately 70
avenue and 144 street roughly right behind the cemetery in newton bc.
The blue ball the size of let's say Volkswagon bug. It moved silently
and went over or behind these cedar trees. And then went into the
cemetery I just remembered. Being really scared it was definitely not
something or someone with a light as it was solid. Thought I would
share that with you guys. Clay
31-Oct-2013, Vancouver, BC: (9:15 pm)
fireworks on the corner when I saw this bright white light with a red
aura slowly coming towards my direction. Whatever it was started
towards my direction. I asked a couple walking their dogs to look up,
and when I said that, it turned into a falling star-like thing...flames
slowly burning out, but i paid attention then. That bright light zoomed
south and outta sight. The second time, around 1030, I walked to the
same exact spot that I saw it, and it appeared for a few seconds
hovering zig zagging, then poof it was gone.
3-Nov-2013, Abbotsford, BC: (6:10 pm)
out into my backyard around 6:10 in the evening (this was just minutes
ago btw). In the sky to the south of where I was standing, around
Marshall Road, was a bright orange light. It appeared to just be
floating there at first, then I realized it was moving slowly. I
watched it for about a minute or so, then when I went in to grab my
camera and came back out, I only saw the light for another few seconds
before it disappeared completely.
Was an odd thing to see.
15-Jul-2007, David Lake, BC:
around four years ago my wife and my daughter went camping at Davis
Lake near Merritt (i'm sure I can get exact dates and locations if you
wantto go that far). My daughter was younger so my wife wasn't drinking
but I had a few beers and was just enjoying the evening. Around
2:30 AM I was laying on a picnic table looking up at the sky for
falling stars because they were very abundant any time I had camped
there in previous years. I then noticed an object far away which seemed
to be moving in a linear fashion yet it would dart side to side as
though it was avoiding objects then disappeared as though it was going
farther away then come back into view and continue on the original
path. Next thing I know there's another one and another one doing the
exact same thing. I went to the camper and woke my wife who again was
stone sober thinking I was just being a drunken idiot but I convinced
her to look up at what I was seeing. It blew her away as we watched
several more objects maneuver along the same path. Over the next hour
the flightpath slowly moved down the horizon due to the rotation of the
earth all the while several more objects followed the same path. It
occurred to me that none of these objects were coming close to the
earth. These objects were passing straight past the earth but all of
them were continuing on the exact same flight path. That's why I named
it the UFO superhighway. This continued until the rotation of the year
Earth caused it to fall past horizon to a point where it could no
longer be seen. Just to be clear they were definitely without a doubt
100% not satellites are anything of that nature... They were moving
with intelligent intentions.
If you would like to pick my brain a little further about the incident feel free to contact me again.
were camped at a small lake on a cattle ranch (I can't remember the
name offhand but I'm sure I would know it to hear it) near Merritt. The
turn off for the ranch is about 20 minutes North of Merritt on Highway
5. The lake was called Davis Lake. It was July 15, 2007. The time I
don't remember exactly but I would say between midnight and 2 AM.
Hope this helps! I would appreciate being kept informed if you turn up anything.
11-Nov-2013, Penticton, BC: (about 5:00 pm)
saw a very bright orange object just after dusk. My neighbor was with
me. It sat for about five minutes in one spot and appeared to waver in
many directions only slightly, like it was being buffeted by the wind -
but there was no wind.
about five minutes, it then vectored south and at a slight up angle and
into the clouds, getting dimmer as it went. It was very bright but
hazy, with lots of orange and about the size of my pinky nail with arm
fully extended. Very unusual.
Hello and thank-you for the sighting report. Do you think it could be a Chinese lantern similar to :
As with all sightings we ask if you can fill in any of the following details
(although you may have already told us, just for completeness, please
re-state your thoughts).
have covered everything already, and clearly it could not have been a
Chinese lantern because both of us saw the object head south at a high
rate of speed.
could not have been a fading Chinese lantern because we saw it move
into the distance, including entering some clouds, then reappearing,
then disappearing again into the clouds.
level at the time was about 2000 feet. When it was sitting in the air
for five minutes I think it was at about 1000 feet and maybe a about
the same distance from us. It was rather large, because at that
distance it was the size of my pinky nail with my arm at full length.
of its movement southward after five minutes the only thing I can think
of is a radio controlled device by a prankster. Still, it did not look
like that, particularly because the orange fire-like visual was so
bright and not flickering very much.
bring forward the Chinese lantern option merely to rule out all
possibilities – and yes you are correct that it is highly unlikely to
be a lantern.
a remote controlled Quad copter is possible. There are several
commercially available ones (AR Drone) that have LED lights on them –
but they may quite the noise and at 1000 feet, it would be difficult to
control at night… at least I wouldn’t want to risk my high priced
gadget at night ;)
for the details, we’ll posted it on our website (anonymously) and see
if anyone else has seen it at the specified date/time.
20-Aug-2012, Kelowna, BC: (9:20 pm)
stepped outside with my dog, looked up at Black Mountain (facing east)
and saw a very large round light hovering to the south of the mountain.
it was about a quarter the size of a full moon and had a contained
white light to it, not a glaring light. it seemed stationary and was
large. Within a couple of minutes it took off into the sky in a
straight line of light, up and out into outer space within a couple of
seconds. I know it sounds crazy, but it was like a ship from star wars
in hyper drive...whatever they call it, a dead straight line into
space. I can't look into the night sky the same way again.
7-Jun-2013, Esquimalt Lagoon, BC: (1:17 pm)
took this picture. It was taken in June at Esquimalt Lagoon, Vancouver
Island, British Columbia, Canada. Approximate GPS coordinates:
I have provided all the information I know about the picture below.
I don’t know what the object is in the sky, right of the sail. I never
noticed it until today. I was looking through my photos to post some on
Could be nothing, could be interesting. Thanks for the look. If you
discover anything, please write me back to fulfill my curiosity.
29-Oct-2013, Surrey, BC:
not sure the exact day, but sky was blue and it seemed like a fiery
orange semi circle, with clouds around it. We were coming from
222 and 20th ave, and we were on 64th avenue. At first we thought it
was an airplane, but it was stationary. Just wondering if any
reports were made about this or what it was.
Nothing that is around the date you provided - I assume it was a daylight sighting?
Any further details as to where it was in relation to you, apparent altitude and size?
It could have been something like a sun dog :
Does that look like it?
it looked far up and the sky was clear, and myself and husband saw
it. It was not the sun. All I know is that it was huge and looked
like fire almost.
26-Apr-2011, Penticton, BC: (about 10:30 pm)
I'm reporting this rather late as I didn't know this site existed until I saw a program on Discovery channel this morning.
the night of Apr. 26th I was out, most likely walking home from work or
out for one of my usual night walks, I can't be sure; however, on that
night at around 10:30 pm I saw a shape in the sky. According to a tweet
I made that same night I had thought it was a bird at first because it
was large. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, but when I
looked at it properly I could see it was triangular and on each point
there was a pale blue/white light. I thought it might be an airplane,
but the lights were so dim that if it had been stationary I might have
thought they were simply distant stars. The shape was solid because it
blocked out the stars behind it and it moved smoothly from the south,
flying over Okanagan lake heading north. I remember being stunned and
removing my headphones because in everything you see on UFO's one of
the common descriptions is that the objects are quiet. Sure enough, I
removed my headphones and heard nothing even though I could still see
the object. After I got home I quickly logged on twitter and tweeted
26-Nov-2013, Maple Ridge, BC: (7:08 pm)
husband and I were walking along 127 Place, facing west when we saw a
group of orange lights in the sky, coming from a southerly direction.
We kept seeing them until there were eight of them; seven were orange
and one was red. We went onto 228th Street and could still see them.
One of them crossed in front of, and almost seemed to touch, one of the
others, twice. One by one they disappeared until just the front one
remained, until it too disappeared from view. They didn't go out of
sight - they simply disappeared. A neighbour came out and saw them too
and called to her husband to come out and see them. There were no
flashing lights to indicate that they were planes; they were just
single lights, like orange stars, but much lower obviously. Did anyone
else see them?
you familiar with "Chinese lanterns"? They are paper lanterns that
hover and drift with the wind. They rise from the heat generated from a
candle, and the candle also causes the illumination.
Here is an example:
Gord – yes, I’ve seen them before. They could have just been lanterns
but, who knows? I have an open mind about things and will look in
our local paper and see if anything is noted there.
Thanks for your help. I love the website. I wrote in once before about some weird lights that we saw and you printed it.
I drove to work this morning I heard on CBC radio news that they
launched sky lanterns in Maple Ridge last night at a memorial for the
little boy (Riddick Servio) killed by a car. So that would confirm that
someone was launching lanterns last night.
Gord - thanks for getting back to me. As it turns out, they were indeed
chinese lanterns after all. Apparently hundreds of them were released
yesterday evening, in a vigil for the little boy who was killed last
week, and I guess we saw eight of them. They certainly didn't look like
lanterns but they must have been.
Love the site. There's a lot going on up there isn't there?
4-Dec-2013, Mission, BC: (about 4:30 pm)
son Patrick and I observed a cylindrical object that was moving
extremely slow. At first we thought it was motionless. We picked up the
binoculars but the low winter sun reflected off it so brightly we could
not determine what it was. It had a weird U shape. It kept drifting
west south west, no blinking lights, and the size remained the same
even though it was moving away from us. It was lost from our view
because of the trees. We kept watching to see if it would emerge on the
other side. And it did after about a good ten minutes. Any plane would
have disappeared within seconds. It now looked like a / (forward slash)
and kept moving until it was lost behind the horizon.
Late November, 2013, North Saanich, BC:
was driving south with my mother to meet up with my step-dad at a
restaurant. Before leaving home I noticed a bright light in the sky and
as we drove we talked about how unusually bright it was for a star and
looked like an artificial light source. Thought it might be an aircraft
since Victoria International Airport was right there but the fact that
it appeared to be stationary and not coming closer didn't make any
have seen something similar before in the army when Artillery units had
exercises, but there is no exercise area on land near Victoria as far
as I am aware of and certainly not between Sidney and Victoria. Later
that evening it was gone. If it was just an unusually bright star due
to perfect weather conditions then it may have gone below the horizon.
I tried taking a picture of it with my phone camera, but it is of
course quite bad.
not the first time we've seen strange things in the sky. In the summer
of 2001. Once at night my mom saw what appeared to be a satellite
moving across the sky when we were near Pender Island while on a
sailing trip. According to her it suddenly moved around and appearing
to make a formation like two arrows pointing in opposite directions.
Then moving into the middle of the pattern before "flying off like in
Star Trek or something".
friend and I also saw what appeared to be a satellite moving across the
sky a year later, while in Quesnel BC. It did nothing spectacular
except that it changed its course by approximately 130 degrees. Twice.
So that it ended up going in a completely different direction. I am no
expert but as far as I know modern spacecraft can't change their course
instantly like that without changing their momentum. I may be wrong.
That is all the UFO related incidents so far in our lives.
4-Dec-2013, Duncan, BC: (8:30 pm)
sister and I were driving to the Walmart just outside of Duncan, when
we noticed three red lights in a triangle formation. It appeared that
the lower two red lights remained solid, while the upper red light was
blinking. It stayed stationary for approximately 50 seconds while we
watched it. It then faded away. Wondering if anyone else saw this.
