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.

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
1977/1978, North Vancouver, BC:
was a little girl, about 4-5 years old. Sitting in the passenger seat
of the car. Driving home from Lions Gate Hospital. We just visited my
grandma. Mom promised to stop at the corner store on West third
looking forward to a candy stash. We turned into west 6. Heading
towards Mahon. It was dark out and a very clear night.
looked towards the Church. Hovering above the steeple was this thing. I
didn't know what it was. Never seen or heard of such things. Nor did I
know they existed. Mom went quiet. She stopped the car, stared a
moment, then turned the car right around. I was so confused. She said
she didn't know what it was.
was about the size of 10 or more cars. All silver. Had white lights all
around its edges. You could see them rotating with the craft. Very
slowly directly above the church cross. I had no idea what it was. We
drove straight home.
asked me to go tell my father what we had seen. I had no clue. So I
went to the kitchen and grabbed two cereal bowls put them rim to rim.
Told them about the lights and how it was so still but turning. He said
it was a UFO. They were not sure what it was. He also told me it
wouldn't hurt me. I had nightmares for months.
I was hoping by sharing this story others will come forward. Someone else had to see this.
19-Jun-2016, Logan Lake, BC: (1 pm)
buddy who is nervous to be named in this small community took this
photo with his cell phone and emailed it to me. I personally did not
see this but he swears this is true. I could have him call you I think
if you want to speak to him. He noticed this only after taking pix of
the deer which is seen in the foreground. I would NEVER hoax anyone. We
are professionally employed and we think this is really unusual. Photo
is attached. It was taken on a cell phone so the resolution is not
Thanks for the photo!
looking at it, as you mentioned the resolution is very poor. So we can
only go on the visual cues to determine what it may be we are looking
at in the photo. Given that he didn't see it himself at the time (a
good indication that it wasn't just hanging there) I would have to
wager that we are seeing a bird heading across the frame and mid-flap.
It could be a bug, but the level of blur and lighting suggests
something 50 feet from the camera (give or take). So although I cannot
say for sure, I would have to guess bird. But great photo of a doe!
21-Jun-2016, Courtenay, BC: (3:05 to 3:50 pm)
was working in the back yard, a semi-rural setting, and my wife and her
friend were present. I sat down on a chair in the shade and was
talking with Alene about birds and my birding skills, when a Turkey
Vulture came into view overhead, and was soaring on a thermal, doing a
straight shot past us, and over the house. We were both looking
at this bird, when we both saw a glint in the clear blue sky, very
distant. I commented that it looked like a star, perhaps I said a day
viewing of the ISS? I asked her to keep an eye on it, as it was
approaching us, from the NNE, while I went to retrieve the binoculars.
I came out and found the shining light, and with optical aid, saw a
pulsing, more intense, less intense light (white to orangy, sodium
vapour-like light) emanating from what? The path seemed to slow
for this anomaly. My wife went in to get the 20X birding scope
with tripod, and I set this up, as they took turns with the binoculars.
I finally got the object in view, I couldn't believe my eyes. It was
definitely emitting light, there were 2 lights, sometimes 3. The object
was silverfish, platelike (no discernable wing-tips, rough edges), oval
and appeared to be flipping continuously. (sometimes the 2 lights were
horizontal, then immediately turning to vertical, then back). We took
turns with the scope. None of us could explain what we were
first of 2 Air Canada jets went by, almost due west My best guess
at the altitude of the passing was 20-25 thousand feet, as I could see
the fuselage colour of Air Canada plane (blueish-gray). Using this as a
reference, I stared as the lines of travel intersected, and could see
that the object was much further distant (30-40 thousand feet).
now slowed and changed direction, heading NNW, about 80 degrees of
travel directional change. It seemed to linger a spell. We were
describing location with referencing the tree top from next door. My
wife went to call the air tower at our local air force base, and was
told, they had nothing in the air at this time. Second Air Canada
flight now passing same height as previous, approximately same
direction. Did either of these flights see this thing on their
radars? Was there any reports by them or their passengers, being
watched this object retreat to the NNW, for the next 10-15 minutes, the
lights still doing the flipping thing, now only visible in the
scope. And then it was gone. A full 45 minute of unexplainable,
unobstructed, star-like light, from an oval shape, multi-directional
travel, in a clear blue sky, by 3 adults on a sunny day in June. Wow!
25-Jun-2016, Nanaimo, BC: (10:50 pm)
4 lights blinking over the straight off Georgia right now been there
for about an hour cameras not good enough to take a pic.
1-July-2016, North Vancouver, BC: (11:00 pm)
was watching the Canada Day fireworks last night with my boyfriend from
a friend's place in North Vancouver, At the end of the fireworks, at
about 11:00 pm) there was a lot of smoke in the sky and two very bright
red orbs, the colour of the red fireworks, suddenly appeared just right
of all the smoke in the sky. They were very close together but it was
clear there were 2 red lights, not one, yet they both moved in unison.
They first appeared on the right side of the smoke in the sky then shot
out in a horizontal line away from the smoke then back in towards the
smoke in a very direct and quick fashion then suddenly dropped down
towards the ocean in more of a curved fashion than a straight line, but
on about a 45 degree angle to the right. Then it disappeared. My
boyfriend and I both noticed it and have definitely never seen anything
like it before. It was clearly not part of the fireworks and it was
definitely not an aircraft.
wonder if anyone else saw this? Was it a drone? Or something else? The
red lights were relatively large in size compared to the firworks we
had just seen. So I can't imagine it was a Chinese lantern or someone
playing around with laser pointers. Thanks!
2-July-2016, Surrey, BC: (11:30 pm)
was out on the back deck at our farm (48th avenue and 152 street) and I
thought I could see some strange lights as if they were in a row but
spaced apart in the shape of a crescent shape ! I called my boy friend
to come see and he freaked out, there was about 5 lights that we could
see and I went to get my phone and as soon as I went to take a picture
the lights went out, we stayed outside and right after I put my phone
down is was like they were turned on by a lights twitch it was like
Boom! Lights back on but this time there was 7 not 5! So we are just
staring off in to these lights ! Can't believe what we are seeing. I'm
calling my mom to go look outside and she couldn't see anything! The
lights stayed in the same area never a different area some times they
went side to side or up and down but never left that area, then I came
in and my boy friend screamed for me to come see and the lights were
gone but there was a bright green light beam across the sky! Then there
was 2 of them! Then they vanished! Then they would come back but there
would be 4 and they started strobing!!! Nothing I have ever seen
2-July-2016, Vancouver, BC: (2 pm)
was on the Locarno Beach yesterday around 2 pm, enjoying the sun and
browsing the sky to find flying birds. I saw an airplane passing just
over my location, heading west. It seemed whitish at that altitude.
Right after the plane I noticed a small, round and dark object flying
at the same speed to west but probably in a higher altitude. I followed
it for 7-8 seconds until clouds concealed my sight. I am mildly myopic
and wear prescribed and ultimately dark sunglasses but my vision is
20/20 when armed. I enjoyed the whole afternoon watching eagles,
seagulls, ravens and even small swallows flying very high in the sky.
3-July-2016, Surrey, BC: (2:30 am)
mail is just a curiosity to know about a light that we saw yesterday
early morning at 2:30 am. Yesterday while travelling through Fraser
highway in BC near 96 avenue, we saw a blurred image of blue lights. At
first it was not clear; later this began to increase and it formed a
semi circle and later this light changed to fluroscent green and then
to light red still in the shape of a half-circle.
have taken some photos in our mobile, as we were travelling in the car
we were not able to stop the car immediately to take the perfect
picture, hence the fotos are not that clear. Hereby with this mail I'm
attaching you those photos. Could you please check and let us know what
these lights are?
If you were travelling northwest
on Fraser Hwy, near 96th Avenue, you would be facing directly towards
Holland Park, which was hosting a concert on July 2nd and 3rd. Possibly
they had coloured spot lights operating? We are trying to get
confirmation of that.
4-July-2016, Nanaimo, BC: (3:30 am)
my house looking up having a crafty smoke, when I saw a light, like a
star....I watched it for about a 1 min 30 sec. It started as a star
then moved and darted about towards Nanaimo town, high up...was weird
as nothing I know moves that quick...I want to know if anyone else saw
it!! I recorded a voicemail on my phone shortly after to record the
time...and went up and told my husband who was in bed....which i think
feels I'm not seeing things right......but I saw it! I hate conspiracy
nuts and and was looking up and bam....little light.....darting around.
I stood there thinking just clear my eyes for 30 sec....... I could not
believe it....but I saw it.....man do we have cool engines out there?
4-July-2016, Vancouver, BC: (1:30 am)
wanted to get my sighting report on your website. On monday July 4 at
around 1:30 am I saw what appeared to be a blue crown shape in the skies
above Vancouver BC. I live in Surrey, and it appeared to be above North
Vancouver somewhere. I know someone else must have seen this as it was
huge and you just couldn't miss it. I didn't take any videos, but
I saw a video on YouTube that someone by the name of Phil Can managed
to capture. She lives in Guildford.I know this is what I saw but I
haven't found any other reports on it, have you recieved anything on
this? Check the video out at
our website we have posted a couple of photographs taken on July 3rd.
We believe the lights shown may have something to do with a concert
taking place in Holland Park in Surrey. Does this photo look like what
Yes that's exactly what I saw. I thought it could be spotlights from a concert but I wasn't sure.
9-July-2016, Mission, BC: (11:30 pm)
walked out to deck for a smoke, I light cig, heard plane, looked up,
saw plane, heading east...and out of the corner of my eye, towards
west, was a bright pulsive flash, I seen it all, and it was like
welding flashes, burn out before hits floor...like this, hung for about
a sec...then no light...I was looking for it, thinking a plane
traveling would light up again in 5 sec....didnt....about 30 sec later,
it did it again in a different spot, lost it in a sec, as light faded
to nothing....and again and again...4 times, 4 different spots, in 4
min....I was thinking, and absorbing it, and it was overcast, I can see
stars in between clouds, and it was above the clouds, which was at low
this day...so im thinking maybe object was 2-3000 feet, maybe....but by
the time I saw the 3rd and 4th flash....I didnt hear anything, as the
plane noise was gone by then....so no sound, jumped arround...and after
the 4th sighting, the clouds where closed in more and I totaly lost it
for good...so I went back in the house and right away told a girl I was
talking to, and I reported it to Mufon just after midnight.....so ya,
this was a single craft, hovering on spot, flashed, moved to different
spot, flashed....or it could of been 1 big craft, with different lights
flashing different spots...but majority of craft was hidden behind
clouds...so i am confused and shooken still...Mufon won't come talk to
me, and i need some one to talk to...but no doctors....if u can somehow
contact me, come over and look at situation I was in, I would like it a
lot...I had to confirm with texts, that I wasnt abducted this
time...because I was gone for 5 min....this wasnt my first sighting,
and it wont be my last...thank you
November 1966, Burnaby, BC:
and my husband were having dinner at a couple's house. We walked
towards their living room window while they were in the kitchen cooking
dinner. We saw a bright light shining down. We looked up
and saw a large circular shaped ("flying saucer" type) object in
the sky with blinking red and white lights as though the object were
rotating. There was a beam of light coming from the bottom on the
object as well. The light was so bright, it was lighting up all
the trees and everything around. It was flying very low. We
were alarmed and back away quickly from the window. The object
disappeared very quickly a few seconds later. We decided to not mention
this to the couple in the kitchen as we didn't think they would believe
1-Jan-2016, North Vancouver, BC: (between 1:15 and 3:00 am)
boyfriend and I were still up on New Years Day 2016 somewhere between
1:15 and 3:00AM. He was in the bedroom changing and I went onto my
balcony which overlooks the ocean and downtown Vancouver. High in
the sky I saw a bright flashing light that seemed to be a circular
shape. At first I thought maybe it was just a plane. Then the object
started moving around erratically all over the place. It could not have
been a plane or helicopter. I pulled out my iphone and got a
short video of it. If I zoom in on the video, I can see the bright
light flashing and moving around erratically very clearly. If I can
figure out how to edit the video so that it is zoomed in, I would love
to submit it. In the video (without zooming in) you can still see a
tiny light moving erratically in the sky, but it looks so small on
video compared to what I saw with my naked eye. I recently looked on
Youtube and it looks like someone else saw 2 UFO's on January 1, 2016
in Vancouver as well (during daylight). He video recorded it and put it
on Youtube. The UFO's on his video look like the one I saw a few hours
earlier when it was still dark.
