Fall of 1994, Sulphurous Lake, BC:
was 11 years old and playing in the back yard of my childhood home,
located along the north side of sulphurous lake. I remember I swung off
our rope swing, landed and turned to go back up the hill. All of a
sudden it was like a strange calm came over and there was no sound at
all. I looked up to the tree line and I saw a huge oval shaped "UFO" it
was moving east to west fairly slowly maybe 20 yards over the tree
tops. The Ufo I would estimate it to be the size of a soccer field in
length. I was paralyzed just in shock being that age and seeing this
thing right in front of me. The craft had no visible windows or seams
on it, it appeared to be seamless with no visible moving parts silver
grey in colour. I saw the thing for only a few seconds it has been in
my mind ever since. I went to elementary school at horse lake
elementary school, I had mentioned what I saw to a few kids in my class
most of them thought I was crazy or making up a story. One of the kids
in my school had witnessed something that looked the same around the
same time in the same area (I sent him a fb request, and plan on asking
him if he remembers what he saw).
1998-1999 around Christmas time Langley BC (willowbrook mall parking
lot) My father and I were just leaving the mall after some Christmas
shopping, it was just getting dark out so evening time. My dad had
looked up in the sky and said "wow, look at the moon" I looked up and
saw a glowing ball in the sky slightly west of our location. I said to
my dad "that's not the moon" the ball I'm not sure how far away but it
seamed to be pretty high up, started changing colours from a grey blue
to green and then orange to red, it was kind of gyrating around kind of
wobbling around that one spot in the sky for maybe 20-30 seconds then
the orange changed to red, the thing broke up into maybe 7-10 smaller
red balls and shot off in pieces to the north so fast it was just a
blur. My dad and I both shocked at what we had just seen asked some
people in the parking lot if they had seen it and they just sort of
looked at us as if we were crazy. The ball/orb looked to be about half
the size of what the moon would look like maybe a bit larger. My dad
and I were swimming at wc Blair pool in Langley a few days later, my
dad was in the steam room talking about what he saw and there was a man
there had seen the same thing on the same night, my dad had come
calling for me in the pool to come talk with the man. The man from the
pool had described the same thing as what we saw that night. I've often
wondered what I saw that night trying to make sense of it. I know back
in those days China beach night club had a spot light they use to use
often, but I have seen that light and I know that what we saw was not a
2011 July 15 10:00 pm to midnight Chilliwack mountian 1km past
chilliwack lake campground on Chilliwack mountian road. My girlfriend's
sister and some of her friends were camping out at the lake for a few
days, we were living in Sardis so we had gone up to visit them one one
night, we stayed out there till maybe 11pm before driving back into
town. When we left that night, driving back towards Chilliwack near
thurston meadows we saw a light flash over the top of our car and our
car radio went fuzzy for a split second. It was only a split second
that we saw the light. Around that time we had seen a lot of army
activities in the area. I had witnessed on more than one occasion army
personnel on that road and up in those mountains with armoured vehicles
and these guys were packing some heavy weapons with them. My girlfriend
and I were talking to our friend in Chilliwack the next day, we figured
that they were up to something out there, so we decided to go out to
the mountain that night. We had posted up alongside the mountain road
laying down blankets and looking up. It was a clear night with not a
cloud in the sky. We sat there for some time not seeing much a couple
of satellites passed by, that was about it.
friend looked up and spotted the first one, it looked about the size of
a star and about the same brightness as an average star, not as big and
bright as a satellite. The ball moved north to south then spun around
in a circle a couple of times and headed east, it would travel 30-45
degrees across the sky spinning in a couple circles and then take off
in a right angle to its last trajectory sometimes speeding up and then
slowing down. Then another one of these balls came into view and
another one and so on. We counted at least five different balls in the
sky at the same time that night and the three of us had watched them
fly around the sky for two hours. Mostly flying the same way as the
first one, going in one direction then spinning a couple circles and
turning at a right angle, but not always the same. I had seen one going
across the sky almost like it was a bouncy ball bouncing along an
imaginary line in the sky. All of these balls were very high in the
sky. They would go fast and then slow down then speed up again, it was
almost as if they were playing a game or in battle or something. We
were all freaking out saying "What the heck is that? What are those
things?" after about two hours they had all disappeared. My friend and
I both tried to take pics but I only had my old razor phone and he had
his old Nokia flip phone, the balls were too far away to get a pic
without a good quality camera. We had returned to the same area the
next night with my girlfriends whole family and didn't see anything. I
have no explanation for what we saw that night.
24-Dec-2014, Kaslo, BC:
I was wanting to contact you because I caught a picture of 4 possible
UFO's drifting over Kaslo. This photo was taken on my smartphone. I put
a filter on the 2nd one to better show you the lights we saw that night.
So the story is, I was sitting at a stop sign with my friend in his
truck and as I looked out the passenger window I saw a glare of reddish
light. I thought it might have been a street lamp but when I looked for
the source I realized it was in the sky. My friend gave out a nervous
"woah" as we jumped out of the truck. Heads looking up in the sky I
counted 5 UFOs that had a red glow like a lantern yet big and bright.
It was easy to pick out in the clear sky that night. As we observed the
UFOs they seem to move very slowly almost drifting through the sky.
After was seemed like 10 seconds the lights swooped into more of a line
to the right of us over the mountain. We stepped back into the truck
not actually sure what we saw. I decided it was good old Santa visiting
us on Christmas Eve. In all seriousness though has anyone seen lights
like red Chinese lanterns in the sky that are definitely UFO?
13-Jan-2015, Vancouver, BC: (7:10 am)
saw six oval-shaped objects that appeard to drop out of the moon in the
southwest sky. Each sped off in a northwest direction. The first
appeared red. The second was darker and appeared to have a yelowish
trail behind it. The next few appeared as dark ovals, but almost looked
more triangular in shape as they sped away to the northwest. The first
two ovals appeared to travel along the same line. The next few darker
triangular shapes traveled in the same direction, but on slightly
honestly don't know what I saw, at first I thought my eyes were
deceiving me, but I was awake and lucid, outside having a cigarette and
staring up towards the moon - there was a break in the fog, and I saw
what I've described above!!
14-Jan-2015, Tsawwassen, BC: (7 - 7:30 pm)
I was driving south along 56 street in Tsawwassen I noticed two small
orbs of light directly beside each other in the sky. The orb on the
left did a clockwise circle around the orb on the right and at the 9
o'clock mark flew off at a steady speed, blinking every second as it
did so. Both lights faded from sight.
20-Jan-2015, Victoria, BC: (6:30 am)
6:30ish this morning I saw a very bright light in the NW sky - roughly
above the West Shore of greater Victoria. It struck me because it
wasn't a round star-like light but an elongated one. It looked to my
naked eye like it was flashing red and blue lights. It was totally
stationary. I grabbed my little opera glasses and was able to zoom in
on it. It showed one very bright center light with four dimmer ones,
two on each side for five lights altogether. It is twenty to
eight and the light is still there though dimmer because of dawn and
light cloud cover - ten minutes ago I could still count five lights.
would think that the five lights with the center one (Venus perhaps) so
bright that the other two on each side were a refraction of the center
and caused by light of dawn over the horizon - or some such
explanation. However, the five lights never wavered even with
changing sky dawning and cloud. The lights were steady as a rock for
the entire hour that I watched. I didn't have a camera I'm sorry to
say, but if you draw five circles along one horizontal line with the
center being very, very bright, you will have it.
Thank you for the sighting report.
brightest object you saw would not have been Venus, as it is always
close to our sun. If it was visible early in the morning, it would have
to be in the southeast sky. However, if you think the objects might
have been celestial, there is a simple indicator that you may have
noticed. Due to the earth's rotation, celestial objects such as stars
and planets would have rotated about 15 degrees in the hour that you
watched (rotation roughly centered around Polaris in the northern sky).
Objects in the west would have rotated closer to the horizon and
objects in the east would have rotated further from the horizon. Did
you notice if the lights were closer to the horizon after the hour that
18-July-2014, Aldergrove, BC: (between 9:30 and 11:00)
was laying on my couch with windows open, lights and tv low. I noticed
bright red neon lights that were horizontal to my living room window
(it faces east). I didn't even sit up halfway and I said "Holy S***",
because I knew that I couldn't understand what I was seeing. The red
neon beams were of different lengths. Four to eighty feet long. They
attached to a great ball of immense light it was fuzzy where they
joined. My 17-year-old came out from the washroom thinking I had
stubbed my toe. When she came down the hall she saw me staring out the
window, still not even sitting upright. She had her iphone in hand and
I remember her saying I gotta take a picture of this. I then got up and
walked to the window to get a better look. The trees across the street
were glowing red and the red neon beams came out from all directions.
It was hovering out my living room window less than 100 feet away and
lower than the telephone pole behind it. The pole has three
transformers on it. There was no noise only a vibration like an "ohm"
could be felt in waves. I was mesmerized and I couldn't take my eyes
off of this light. There seemed to be movement somehow inside the
light. The glow of red dimmed as did the brightness. The red neon beams
that seemed to be 8inches around had a flat solid end and I watched
them retract into the light ball. The light ball was the size of a cube
van. It was a windy night with some cloud cover but no rain. It dimmed
and shrank until it flashed a dim yellow amber than shrunk. I remember
seeing a flash of a silvery metal capusule, then it blinked from the
band around the center, moved 20-30 feet east and disappeared in front
next day it seemed that my memory was showing my mind things that I do
not remember happening, such as not even looking at the object out the
window but knowing it was there. My daughter never got a picture as she
was also too mesmerized. I did canvass neighbors on the following day
but couldn't find anyone other than my daughter and I that witnessed.
a week later I also saw three large orange lights that were in a
triangle formation. They were also east out my window. The lights were
also witnessed by my daughter. They blinked out one at a time without
moving. They were the size of a dime held at arm's length.
was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Has there been any
other sightings around that time? I have also since found out that
Corina Saebels had reported missing time and a sighting. We live in the
same community and I'm just blocks away from where the film footage of
her story was taken. Is this a strange coincidence?
see your site says both paranormal and UFO - this could be one or the
other. I have no idea and I'm hoping in fact this is simply a human
thing with an explanation but so far no luck.
I am severely rattled.
- Jan 30 starting around 9:30 p.m. there is lots and lots of racket
like thumps and movement and so on outside that I can hear on this
rural acreage (and I have heard noises like this in the past but would
ignore them because I am alone here). Where I am is very rural and
isolated and dark at night. So much noise that night on Jan 31
that 5 times I turn down the TV remote - but the noise then does
seem to stop. I don't go look because it is dead dark and Im alone here
and scared to look. Back to TV and again the noise - from outside
I am sure ( not the TV). At 10:30 I go into kitchen for a glass of
water - look out the window and almost have a heart attack. Why?
because there is a vehicle driving off this property on the driveway
which is about 10 metres from window. I CLEARLY SEE THE OUTLINE OF A
VEHICLE AND THE RED TAIL LIGHTS REALLY REALLY BRGHT. No big deal but
read on. I assume someone is here and perhaps stealing as there is farm
equipment here. I call my sister as she owns this property. Then I take
a flash light and go to front porch and shine it and here is when I get
really freaked - we have a huge metal gate always padlocked and there
it is still pad locked. I expected to see an open gate. And In fact I
recall returning home earlier in the day and locking the gate as usual.
How could the vehicle have gone through the gate? To add to this there
were vehicle noises I heard throughout all of this.
Jan 31 same scenario except the other way around - time is 9 p.m. a
vehicles come to gate and drives in - except gate is locked. I call my
sister and she comes right away - this is her property. She arrives and
goes to the back of the property to see if vehicle is there - no
vehicle. As well in both cases she looked for tire tracks and the only
ones there were mine and only foot prints in mud were mine. She is
adamant there is no other access (like from behind the property) to get
onto this land. And even if there were, how can a vehicle drive through
a gate. Because this is a vehicle it is creepy to me -- although
nothing has happened to me except fright. What the hell is this? This
may sound funny to an outsider but believe me when you are here alone
this is not funny because it is so bizarre.
I have never heard of something like this............ I am a devout follower of Christ and I am not lying.
sister was taken when she was 15 but never me I believe. Is this
paranormal or a UFO in disguise or something else - if so why in
disguise as a vehicle - why????
THANKS EVER SO MUCH
- I am kind of frightened but I refuse to leave here as have to face my
fear. But any advice - I would be grateful. Again I know this is kind
of funny. But not to me.
First, please do not be scared – there is no reason to be.
to what the lights may be, it could simply be that the distance you
thought you saw the car was not the actual distance. As you said it was
dark, at night and you were already on edge – it is very normal to
misjudge distances and the like when one is under duress in less than
ideal weather conditions. The fact that you did not find any tire
tracks (good on you for searching) then it is likely nothing.
if it is indeed something else, if they possess the technology to
levitate the car, why would they bother using roads? Or be stopped by a
wooden door if they wanted in the house. Of course we were not there,
but what makes sense and seems the most reasonable is that a car came
up to the driveway, tried to gain access (hence the noise) and took off
when you went outside (or shortly before) and you saw it leave the gate.
suggestions if it happens again, have a large flashlight/spotlight (can
be purchased for less than $20 at Canadian Tire or WalMart) at the
ready and jump out and see what you think you’re seeing. Either way,
good luck and if you think there is someone stealing your property, you
can always call the police they will be more than happy to come out to
make sure you’re ok.
Let us know what transpires!
Mid 1990's, Kelowna, BC: (around 4 pm)
I am not exactly sure of the date, I could find out from the building that I was working on.
was coming home from work at the RBC in Westbank heading north towards
Kelowna on HWY97 in the Mount Boucherie Road area. It was in the fall
so the Sun was low in the sky, it was also fairly clear weather. On the
horizon to the north of Kelowna I saw an amazing light streak across
the sky parallel with the horizon. The best way I can describe it is
white and with a multi colour effect changing colour as it traveled. It
was going at an amazing rate of speed right across the visible horizon.
I have seen many meteorites and falling stars, this was different it
went parallel with the horizon and did not burn out. I was also an Air
Cadet and have an interest in Aviation, I know how different
aircraft look at speed including fighters, nothing is as fast as what I
saw. The area it flew from was (this is a guess) from the Beaver Lake
area of Winfield west towards the coast. I asked a co employee who was
behind me in traffic the next day if he saw anything. He kind of gave
me a funny look and told me what he sa, it was the same thing. I can
not explain what we saw, but I thought I would share it with you.
8-Feb-2015, Invermere, BC: (12:30 am)
a friends house at 12:30 AM on Feb 08, 2015, I witnessed something I
cannot explain and after analyzing and processing it mentally, I can
only conclude I saw a UFO. I live in the BC Rockies near Invermere. The
night was partly cloudy and weather was mild. As I was walking towards
my vehicle I saw a streak of green, at its head appeared to be a
cylindrical or flattened oval object. We live in a flight path area
between Vancouver and Calgary and I am used to seeing all manner of man
made objects passing overhead. This object was travelling at an
incredible rate of speed. I have never seen anything so fast before. It
emitted a glow of green unlike any green I have seen in nature, almost
neon, and due to the speed left a light trail behind it. It was low
enough to penetrate the clouds. There was absolutely no sound. No sonic
boom. I have seen meteors and it was not like any meteor I have ever
seen. At the speed it was travelling I would estimate that its flight
over the Rockies from my location to the prairies would have been a
matter of a few seconds. It was travelling West to East. Unfortunately
the event was over in a blink of an eye so no photo opportunity.
From what your description is providing, I would say you guessed correctly what you saw: A green meteor, similar to this one:
course, with that being said, there was the 50's Project Twinkle that
studied apparent Green Fireballs that were unexplained.
So our guess is as good as yours :)
Great sighting thanks for the report!
name is "Ruth" and I just need to tell someone who won't think I am
insane. I am 35 years old and these events took place from the time I
was very little: 1980s to 1996. I was not alone for all of them either.
I grew up in XXXX and XXXX on Vancouver Island. When I was quite young
my grandfather had a stroke and lived in the hospital. Every night my
grandmother would take me or my sister to the hospital to visit him
around 8pm. On one night just as we had pulled up to the hospital we
saw this weird almost oval reddish light with a smaller black oval in
its center. My grandmother said not to get out of the car. I had this
feeling in my head and my stomach, almost like extreme nervousness and
terror. I couldn't stop looking. It was there for a few seconds and
then gone. We sat in the car for quite awhile until my grandmother felt
it was safe to get out. It didn't seem like anyone else noticed or was
afraid. On the drive back we saw it in the sky again. It was about a
forty minute drive home, that night it was almost midnight before we
made it home. I remember because my parents were mad at how late we
were and how I needed to be in bed.
I was around nine we were living on XXXX Avenue, near XXX High School.
It was the early evening and my sister was on the couch reading, I
can't remember where anyone else was but I was in my room changing and
the next thing I remember was getting that same feeling again. Next
thing I know my sister was waking me up telling me I must have fallen
asleep and she was laughing at me because my arms were over my head and
my sweatshirt was halfway off with my head covered by the middle. She
said I had been in my room for two hours when she came to check on me.
moved several years later to XXXX Road near XXX Lake. The summer of
1995 my dad was in the backyard watering and he called me out on the
deck. In the sky was what I can only describe as a flying saucer. It
felt like seconds but when we both came to it was way later. The sun
was in a different location and my dad was standing in a couple inches
of water. We went inside shaken. My dad will still talk to me about
that as it was traumatic. I opened up to my husband about this and he
looks at me funny now. My dad told him what happened all those years
ago and it didn't matter. I am not crazy.
17-Feb-2015, Abbotsford, BC: (9 pm)
an orange light heading west in the sky. Appeared for about 15 seconds,
stopped twice and then disappeared. Wondering if anyone else saw it?
19-Feb-2015, Tagish Lake, Yukon: (8:15 pm)
orange lights going up like a roman candle in slow motion one after the
other and then lining up in diagonal straight line. They then stayed in
that configuration until one by one disappearing. As I was going back
to the house I saw one more that stayed in the same spot and then also
disappeared. 815 pm Thursday night feb19
Has any one else reported this sighting?
21-Feb-2015, Vancouver, BC: (7:20 pm - 7:25 pm)
was out for a walk around Kitsilano Beach in Vancouver on Saturday
evening. I was looking up into the sky since it was clear with a sliver
moon off in the western sky. Having studied astronomy at university,
and being somewhat familiar with the night sky, I started to scan the
sky as I walked east in the park along Cornwall Avenue. I noticed
Orion's belt in the southern sky, and then shifted my gaze to the
Eastern sky to see what planet I might see in the ecliptic plane. Then
I noticed two bright yellowish colored lights in parallel to one
another, the one on the left being discerningly brighter than the one
on the right. At first I just assumed they were the wing tip lights of
an airliner either coming into Vancouver from overseas, or departing,
as they sometimes do in that part of the sky. But then I noticed that
these lights weren't tracing the kind of trajectory one would expect to
see if that were the case. Then one of the lights, the one on the left,
looked like it began to 'descend' or come toward me somewhat. That's
when it occurred to me that I might not be looking at any airplane. It
was simply moving too slow to stay airborne. Then while my focus of
attention was on this light, I noticed that from its bottom it spewed
what appeared to be a shower of gold-yellow sparklers. After this
happened, it then ascended rapidly, and appeared to be getting smaller,
and the second light off to the south did so as well, until they
disappeared entirely. About a minute later, the light on the right
re-appeared for a short time, perhaps half a minute, but then it simply
vanished. I wasn't frightened in any way, only fascinated, and sort of
wished they came closer so I might get a better look. It's the first
time in my life when I can honestly say that I've seen a UFO. And for
the record, I had not consumed any alcohol or any other mind altering
substance at that time, nor do I generally speaking either.
23-Feb-2015, Langley, BC: (5:45 pm)
mom, my daughter and I were driving south on 232 street toward 28
avenue and we saw a disc-like object in the sky gliding north, it was
in the sky in the west. The object we saw was luminescent, glowing a
gold color. I quickly pulled over and snapped some pictures with my I
phone and the object moved behind the tree and it was difficult to see
May 2014, Surrey, BC:
A few tears ago I reported what I thought were strange lights, but after a little more investigating, I was satisfied what I saw was simply jets coming into YVR. My point in saying this, is it is easy to be fooled; clouds moving against the dark sky make bright planets appear like they are moving.
Anyhow my curiosity remains. Since then I have seen a lot of stuff I can't explain. One in particular was around the end of may 2014, about 2 am. 2 nights in a row I saw a bright orange light similar to a jet at a distance, but this was closer, guessing 2-3 miles away. A solid light,very bright, no beacons, moving steady from west to east, about 1000-1500 feet in elevation, maybe moving about 150 mph. Rough guessing, as my dad and brother were both pilots, and I flew a lot with them when I was younger. What struck me about these lights is they were stone quiet eerily silent, and they seemed to just float through the sky. I am in the flight path to YVR, and I take note in detail when a plane passes over as to the size, the speed, the noise, the lights, altitude,and there is no mistaking, maybe a china lantern? I somehow doubt it. The frustrating part is all I could see was the light, no structure, although I am sure that there was some. I saw it come towards me from the west, I watched it head east towards Cloverdale, north of 64th, south of Fraser hwy and west of 152 Street. It was high enough to dart in and out of low cloud. I dont take this stuff too lightly and I'm not going to report every thing I see.
That was the 3rd and 4th time I haveseen these things, a single object each time. I know others have seen similar stuff in my neighborhood. That's all for now as this is getting too long.
Thank you for your time.
Response to seeing red and green lights:
been reading a lot of the BC sightings which have been very fun and
interesting to read about. I definitely believe that there is life
outside of earth and that some must be able to visit us. I just
wanted to say on the sightings page for BC there were about three of
them listing smaller crafts with red and green lights. I think what
people are seeing are drones. A lot of them have red and green
Thanks so much for having these sites!
28-Feb-2015, Mission/Silverdale, BC:
was out on the flats right next to the Fraser river between Mission and
Silverdale BC. An airstream/jet stream caught my eye. It was strange
because it was dark outside and this seemed unusual. The stream
traveled south to north over the Fraser river and went up into the sky
at a high angle. I could make out a small red object creating this
stream disappearing into the sky. I watched it until it was completely
out of view. I then examined the stream itself and noticed 2 90 degree
turns in the stream. North to east then quickly back east to north. I
knew this was very unusual and grabbed my cellphone and started
filming... at least I thought I did. In my excitement I was paused when
I thought I was recording. While this was happening I noticed what
looked like a large reddish satellite. It was really moving fast
traveling east to west. I witnessed this object eject a second very
small red object out the back that stayed in place. I witnessed the
actual separation I could see ejection. This is when I noticed my
camera was on pause not record and I quickly put it to record and gave
the camera the run down. As I was leaving about 10 min after the
separation event I noticed a lot of planes converging on the area. This
may be regular air traffic or not but the whole experience was very
have since looked back at the footage and like I thought you cannot see
the Jet stream in the dark but it was visible to the eye.
Reporting in the hope that someone else witnessed this event. It got me to report.
28-Feb-2015, Maple Ridge, BC: (9 pm)
bright orange lights in triangle in sky. Called to wife and son to come
look and we watched them disappear one after the other. The sighting
duration was about 20-30 seconds.
28-Feb-2015, Victoria, BC: (10:30 pm)
cousin, friend, and I were outside having a smoke just in a complex off
of Lampson Street beside Head Street and my cousin looked up at the
moon and said, "Look at the UFO!" When my friend and I looked up we saw
what looked like a bright orangeish round orb-like flying object and
right away from looking at it we knew it wasn't a plane, helicopter or
satellite as weve seen them and it was nothing like that. It was going
east/southeastern and was traveling faster than I've seen in a while as
I have seen them the last year and a half maybe around 10 times and I'd
say this one was going far faster then anything human made. After about
3 minutes I ran inside to grab the rest of our friends and all 6 of us
watched it in an almost shocked state. I'm just posting this to see if
anyone else in the Victoria, BC area saw the same thing. It was 10:30
pm Feb 28 th.
15-Feb-2015, Vancouver, BC: (5:55 pm)
about 5:55 pm on Sunday evening, February 15, 2015, under dark blue
sky, sun almost set, 2 friends were visiting my 7th floor high rise on
Barclay Street which faces north towards Coal Harbour. One of my
friends noticed a strange object floating quite still, just above the
roofs of the high-rise apartments across the street. I often see
satellites, helicopters, or float planes from the Harbour heading to
Victoria and back, but this thing just hovered, no noise, perfectly
still. I went and grabbed my binoculars, my pal checked them out first,
passed them back to me, and then I passed them to our third friend. We
were stunned!!! What we saw was almost the cliche of a flying
saucer, round with a smooth dome rising off the surface at both the top
and the bottom, 5 or 6 white, red, and green lights around the diameter
of the object, lightly flickering, dull grey, smooth metallic finish
over the whole object. We were at first confused if it was quite small
and close up or larger and a bit further away, but upon closer
inspection it seemed to be really large and maybe a few blocks back,
floating over Alberni and Gilford. I went to grab my camera and was
trying to get it together, but by the time I located it thru the lens
finder, it almost seemed to recognize that it had been spotted and drew
back silently, evenly, and without sound. We couldn't see where it went
behind the obstructing apartments. We checked the computer, it was
5:59, we were all shocked, couldn't believe it, questioned what else it
could possibly be, a drone maybe? But it seemed to be at least about 20
feet in diameter. We were absolutely in disbelief when at 6:05, 5
minutes later, it re-appeared in exactly the same spot, once again I
fumbled for my camera, and it vanished backwards within seconds, no
sound. We called non-emergency 911 to report it in case anyone else had
also reported it, they actually took us very seriously, then I tried
the planetarium that evening and on several recent occasions since, but
they are very difficult to reach but will try again today.
do consider myself to have an open mind but I'm a bit of a cynic as
well, so let me tell you, I would probably have doubted it if someone
else described what I saw, but this was real as day. I had 2 witnesses
who also saw it, and we could clearly see it thru the binoculars.

was sitting outside on our deck on the top roof of our condo on a clear
Friday night before 7pm in Surrey, BC. I had been outside for about 10
minutes when my husband went inside. For two minutes I sat smoking a
cigarette and was looking up to the West at the Pleaides and then a
dark object , darker or Blacker than the night sky at dusk with no
"obvious lights" except a orange/red dull glow barely visible (as if on
top of the craft) went by, no sound, no sonic boom-it traveled south
east and quickly moved accross the sky before disappearing. I couldn't
believe it when I saw it-I said outloud to my self-"I see you". It was
high but how??? its shape was like a flying "V" guitar except longer
and narrower. It seem to come out of nowhere and disappear as it
crossed the sky past Orion to the brightest star due south and then
seemed to vanish. For about 4 seconds I had visability.
at the Surrey/Delta border and regularly have jets and planes in
various stages of assent and decent and am very familiar with the
lights/sounds/streaming smoke/engines etc-this was fairly large with a
definite narrowed V shape-no lights (except) a glow (reflection) from
the top; no sound at all-still night ; black and moved very quickly,
soundlessly before disappearing. Faster than any plane or helicopter-it
was obviously something very different. No smoke/no sound -I thought

Not sure who I'm talking to nor where to report, but you might want to check this video:
Description included in video caption. UFO Keremeos BC 20 sept 2014
A loud humming and buzzing sound woke me up at night in Keremeos, on
September 20, 2014. A bright shining light pulsating, changing colors,
was flying over the mountain of Columns Park, made of basalt columns.
It moved around a while and then hovered for a long time, apparently
I filmed it for 20 minutes and discovered interesting details when
annalyzing the footage frame by frame and enlarged. It has the general
shape of a pumpkin, the closest thing I can find to describe it. Some
rows of lights can be seen around it. An aura or magnetic shield
surrounding the ship kept pulsating with the changing buzzing sound,
and could be seen at times as a green grid. Holographic projections
appear in the shielding energy field and images, like eyes can be seen
at times, as an identification and communication device for the
After about one hour, the craft started ascending slowly and its lights
got dimmer, until it disappeared. More details can be seen in the
video. Images are worth 1,000 words.
Thanks for your interest and feedback...
the beginning of your video you give examples of video captures of the
full moon and a normal star. Thank you for these. In the "Zoom Out" of
the star you can see it as a small point of light. In the "Zoom In"
image it shows up as a large pixellated object. With the modest
telescope I had in my younger days I quickly realized that a true
"optical" enlargement of a star still shows it as a tiny point of light
- a little brighter, but still a point of light. The large pixellated
star and "ufo" are either out of focus, or "digital" zooms. The
"magnetic shield", "rows of lights" and "holographic projections" are
just magnified atmospheric fluctuations, clouds, ambient lights and
your imagination. You can also see that when zoomed in, the star and
the "ufo" are both six-sided. This is an artifact of the camera
aperture, and not a true indication of the actual shape of the objects.
I have watched the video several times, and see no reason to classify
that object as a true ufo.
you had filmed the object in "Zoom Out" mode, and it had showed unusual
movements in relationship to the background stars, trees, mountain,
etc, it may have had some interest. Unfortunately, nocturnal lights are
usually the weakest of sighting reports at the best of times.

is a light which hovers over Stanley Park every few weeks. If you
follow Orion's right foot and look a little further down and to
the right at around 10 - 11pm it's the brightest thing in the sky. It's
there quite often - at least a few times a month. It looks like a
sparkly star, but it moves around & if you zoom in for a photo,
these are a few of the shots I took tonight. The last two photos are
zoomed out to see the balconies around my condo so you can get a
perspective on it. Am I going crazy or is this something weird?
P.S. Awesome site
Thank-you for the email.
Sadly without the original high resolution unedited photos we cannot make any comments on your photos.
the likelihood that you are seeing a “UFO” on a regular basis over a
major town is practically zero. It is much more likely you are seeing a
celestial body (planet or star).
23-Jul-2008, near Kamloops, BC:
LATE AFTERNOON ABOUT 630 PM JULY 23 2008 I NOTICED A BRIGHT IMAGE
BY A PLANET! The sun was to the southwest of me. When I looked to the
north above the river, maybe 50 feet above the river a black object
traveling fast and no sound. It was the size of a small plane
travelling west down the river. This object disappeared but looked like
it traveled toward this Bright planet. I reported this to some ufo
report agents phone number and they called me back. They said it was
Venus. Then the gentleman said that was not too important about what I
just wrote. I did see this object that I will never forget.
for the report. I am not too sure what the black object could have
been, but the only planet you could have seen in the western sky, with
the Sun still in the sky, would have been the planet Venus.
8-Apr-2015, Surrey, BC:
family and I were walking to Surrey Central skytrain. We saw what
looked like a UFO. It was round, unmoving. I got photos and video with
my camera phone. Another family walking ahead of us saw and recorded it
too. It stayed for about 5 minutes after we noticed it. We looked away
for a minute, and it was just gone.
8-Apr-2015, Grand Forks, BC: (11 to 11:30 pm)
stayed out a little later that night, so when we got home and pulled in
to the driveway, we noticed a bright white light flashing on what
looked like the mountainside. It had never been there before, and after
putting the kid to bed we went back outside to have a better look. This
time the light had moved further to the right, but was still flashing
at approximately the same height. It appeared as if it had no depth in
the air, neither myself, nor my hubby could gauge a distance on it.
after a minute of looking at it, it vanished. Immediately following its
disappearance there was suddenly a different light that was hopping and
vaguely swirling, and at the same time flashing between red, green, and
blue. It had risen above the mountains horizon line, and was moving
slowly from east to west in the hop-swirl manner, still no distance
could be gauged on this thing.
dimmed a few times, returning to its original colorful brightness, then
abruptly vanished. At the same time that we were watching that one,
another one appeared to our right just above a gap in the tree line.
This one was more subtle, but it was definitely the same kind of thing.
Once I was thoroughly spooked and went inside, my hubby noticed a
third, and when he came in he mentioned that the stars appeared to be
wrong (no recognizable constellations). It was a very clear night, so
we should have been able to recognize something. There was a very eerie
black patch in the sky that really seemed wrong to me. I felt like we
were under some kind of cloak, neither of us could see the moon
anywhere (as far as I knew we should have had a rather obvious moon out
all this, everything was exceptionally quiet and still. More so than
normal. Usually you can still hear the trees, nature, the highway...
But my god was it quiet!
There was a full moon on April 4th, so by April 8th it would still have
been very "obvious", but would not have risen above the horizon until
well after midnight.
April 2015, Vancouver, BC: (10 pm)
saw your site and thought you might be able to identify a bright light
in the sky that my girlfriend and I are baffled about. This light
appears several times a week due west of English Bay around 10
pm. It’s height would suggest an airplane, but it doesn’t appear
to have any navigation lights and it’s positioning is stationary,
sometimes for hours at a time. We can’t see
anything in the day where it was but it is way higher than any
That would likely be the planet Venus – nothing fancy I’m afraid.
16-Apr-2015, Balfour, BC: (4:15 am)
this morning, while looking south above the horizon, I observed what
appeared to be a star among other luminaries in an exceptionally clear
night sky . After a few seconds, it gradually increased in brightness
which lasted briefly and then switched off like a light, whilst
emanating consistently fading residual light. not unlike a wick
lantern after the fuel is shut off. This is the first anomalous event I
have witnessed so far this year. Last September. I witnessed a green
fireball around 3 am on Sept. 23 in the Blackwater area southwest of
Vanderhoof. I was outside of my tent taking a whizz, when the whole
area lit up brightly, and I turned around and saw the fireball with a
trail of sparks coming off its tail. I could actually hear the
combustion of it burning whatever constituents it was comprised of. I
estimate that it was about 500 feet in altitude and 1000 feet away as a
crow flies. It was travelling slowly for something that presumably
entered the atmosphere and it did not land or crash, to my knowledge. I
lost sight of it and did not hear any sounds after it passed, as I
presumed that it was losing altitude and would eventually touch down.
On May 29 of 2014 at dusk, I saw a white light travelling north above
Chetwynd at an altitude of about 10,000 feet. I thought it to be a
plane but there was no sound and no navigation lights blinking as is
typical of aircraft. I don't spend too much time skywatching, and feel
perplexed by the regularity of these events.
you very much for the reports. I would like to caution you about
estimating the elevation of a light in the sky, even one as dramatic as
a green fireball. It is quite common for people to see a meteorite and
say, "I think it must have crashed just over that hill!" Meanwhile, a
few minutes later, somebody 2000 miles away will see the same meteorite
and say the same thing,"I think it must have crashed just over that hill!"
15-Apr-2015, Williams Lake, BC: (8:40 pm)
was a clear sky last night with only a few clouds in the distance. My
hubby and I were outside looking up at the few stars and planets, when
all of a sudden we noticed a steady light come from out of no where. At
first we thought it was a satellite but it was going too fast and was
not travelling in a completely straight line. We watched it as it went
out of view moving sporatically. Then within a minute another bigger
object showed up in the exact same spot as the first one, same thing as
we watched it go in the same direction. Then within seconds of that one
we watched as 3 more appeared, individually, and within
minutes of each other in the same spot. Everything was the same
about all them..no flashing lights as such, really bright single light
and sporatic movement. We watched a total of 5 UFOs come into view at
the exact same spot and all go in the same direction. The second
object appeared to be the biggest one. At one point we did see a
satellite way up and over above the objects and it was definately slow
moving and across the whole sky. We also saw a plane come in as the
airport is just over the hill from Pine Valley, with it's flashing
lights and noisey engines. The UFOs were heading in just about
the same direction as the airport but more so to the east, they were
all silent in nature. It would be very interesting to know if the
airport radar picked up something. All we know is that these were
not air planes or any sort of reflection from stars, clouds or
satellites. Last summer we saw a UFO that appeared in the same
spot out of no where, it was also a clear evening around 7:30ish but
this one was definately upside down tear drop like ones that have been
reported and have seen images of it. Wondering if this is a port of
entry and where are they going. Gibraltor copper mine is to the
north east, are they going for minerals or what the hey is going
on!? We will continue to watch the sky.
21-Apr-2015, Surrey, BC: (noon)
and my family (husband, 2.5 year old son, and 4 month old son) were
walking down 100th Ave towards King George Blvd. My husband turned to
me and pointed up in the air just on the King George side facing
towards 102 and King George, he said "what the hell is that?". I look
up and I can see this triangular-shaped object right up near the
clouds. It had 3 sides and it looked like it had balls on each point of
the triangle. It was shifting it's "balls" and hovering in one spot
slowly going upwards. My husband says "it's a kite" I say "that's too
big to be a kite" he says "it's a kite" I say "if it's a kite if it
were to come down here it would be almost the size of the intersection.
That's one big kite" he then says "I've got chills". His realization is
that it's too big of an object to be a kite... in the same area is a
hellicopter circling the area watching the object. We were wondering
why the hellicopter was following it... when we reached the other side
of the intersection, it shifted one of the balls and it started to glow
a orange greenish light and shot straight up through the clouds.... me
and my husband were shocked and in awe. I don't know what else to
say... this is my first sighting, and I don't know what it was. .. but
this is my story.
23-Apr-2015, Vancouver, BC: (10:50 pm)
was at home and was almost ready for bed. I was playing with my cat
Stella and she looked out the window and saw something bright and
colorful that was spinning above. I looked and saw it. It was blinking
red and white lights with tinges of blue and green. It was spinning and
was flying quick across the sky. I am near the airport but I guarantee
it wasn't a plane because it would've come closer. Keep your eyes out.
14-Oct-2014, Kamloops, BC: (11:16 pm)
house is about one-third the way up the valley’s south side overlooking
the city of Kamloops. Most summer and fall nights I go out on my
balcony for an hour before I retire. My balcony faces north and Polaris
is directly in front of me about 50° above the horizon. Because of the
city lights I can only see 52 stars from this view. I know every one of
them by heart. I count the number of airplanes, satellites, and meteors
that I see each night. On this particular night I went out and before I
even sat in my chaises lounge I noticed a magnitude -2 to -3 star in
the northwest. I immediately thought it was the ISS going over-head but
after a second or two I realized it wasn’t moving. There should not be
a star of that magnitude at that location and I wondered what it might
be. It was approximately where the star 21 CVn should be, (however, I
can’t see a star that dim from my balcony) so I thought it might have
gone supernova! But that particular star is too small and too close to
have gone supernova (a star that close going supernova would be as
bright as the sun). Still it could be a star far beyond 21 CVn that had
gone supernova so maybe I should report it to the IAU.
While I was mulling over these thoughts the star gave off a faint pulse
of light and less than a second later shot off straight north so fast
my eyes couldn’t follow it. No propulsion system I know of could
accelerate an object so quickly and no inertia cancellation technology
that I am aware of could have saved the craft or its occupants from
instant destruction. I place this object clearly in the “unidentified”
14-Mar-2015, Surrey, BC:
friend and I were sitting in my condo which faces north from Surrey
Central looking all the way from Cypress Mountain, all the way east to
Golden Ears Provincial park. We both saw a red glowing orb descend from
the sky just east of the Coquitlam works yard over top of Port
Coquitlam. The event lasted about 10 seconds if that. We lost sight of
the UFO as it went out of view behind the northern ridge of Whalley.
23-Apr-2015, Fort Saint James, BC: (2:02 am)
object with red pulsating light in front (or direction of travel).
Yellow to orange underside of craft, yellow light down side. Going from
south to north. Twenty minutes observed 2:02am
11-May-2015, Hope, BC: (11:10 pm)
Last night I had taken my friend to the bank and on the way home I
noticed something huge towards my right just hovering in one spot with
lights all the way around and when I asked my friend what was that she
looked and asked the same thing. So I tried to drive around to see if I
was able to locate it to get a picture and it was gone. I couldn't see
it anywhere in the sky.
