These are some of the latest sightings reported. Again,
we appreciate the contributions from the National
UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) and from Houston UFO
Research (HBCC UFO).
Surrey, BC: (4:00 am)
The blinking object is in the sky, high above, north east from my apartment location
but not far away, so I guess its vertical position is 13th Street between Surrey Central
and Guildford Mall. It looks like a star, but I felt immediately it is not a star as there
are no other stars around and this is a windy, rainy night. It moves around slightly,
blinking and changing colors. My lights have been going on and off for a few times
tonight, however that happened before I discovered this object when I opened the window to
get some fresh air. I will double check whether it is still there tomorrow night.
19-Jan-2007, Coquitlam, BC: (7:30 pm) NUFORC
My 13 year old son noticed the UFO first as we were playing in the backyard. He saw
yellow lights flashing in a circle-shaped object. He pointed to the sky. Then I looked up
and saw a round circle-shaped object flying. The sky was very cloudy. The object seemed to
be approximately 200 to 300 metres above us and was moving from east to west. The size of
the object was that of a medium car tire. It was moving from side to side. The sound
coming from it was similar to the sound coming out of a punctured tire. Afterwards, the
object disappeared in the clouds.
21-Jan-2007, Maple Ridge, BC: (12:00 am) NUFORC
It was a very clear night and I had just finished a walk with my dog. We had just
gotten to my driveway when I noticed some very bright flashes, like from a camera flash,
but with bright yellow, red, blue and some greenish-orange colours. I was stunned, trying
to think why a plane would be flying so low - too low. The object was circular and it
seemed to change shape to a square over and over again, but very slowly, with no sound. It
was heading east slowly at about approximately 600 feet. I watched this for about 3
minutes; its flashes were very bright and so fast. Then it changed direction instantly -
now it was heading southwest and it began to rise up. A couple of times it just stopped
completely then moved to the southwest again while rising still higher. It cruised higher,
to about 1000 feet, and seemed to get even brighter. By this time, I’d say I had been
watching it for about 10-12 minutes, and then it passed over my block. Now it was heading
away from me at just over 1000 feet high. It was still very bright, heading more west than
east toward the Port Mann Bridge, New Westminster to the Surrey area. The last bit of it I
could see had brighter blue flashes along with lesser colors. It was just small lights
when I lost track of it. It was very cool; it amazed me and freaked me out a bit.
I went in the house after this event, which was about 15-20 minutes in length. No more
than 6-8 minutes later, I heard the buzz of a low fast helicopter. It was a Magnum P. I.
type (Bumblebee). I went out on the deck and this chopper with a small white light and a
very bright green light buzzed over my area (Lougheed Highway and 207th, Maple Ridge, B.C.
It quickly buzzed the area, making a quick circle, and then just full-throttled it
southwest in the path of the lights. It was really quick and it seemed like it was
definitely looking for something. Like I said, the object came from the east, the Maple
Ridge area, and turned southwest then more westerly. If anyone knows what it was, I would
love to find out. It seems like someone knew about it before I even saw it.
26-Jan-2007, Surrey, BC: (6:08 pm)
I have a video of this sighting. The lights were very erratic in the sky, moving
quickly vertically and then to the side. They stopped in mid-air. It is a clear night and
at first I thought it was a star but the movement prompted me to record it on my cell
27-Jan-2007, Vancouver, BC: (1:50 – 1:55 am)
I live in Kitsilano and was looking into the southwest skies from my ground floor
apartment in my living room. At first I saw what looked like an exceptionally bright star
or planet. When I went and used my binoculars for a closer look, I became very confused as
to what its true nature was.
I saw a very bright bluish light that appeared to be 'dancing' in one spot. It was very
beautiful. However, about every 10 seconds or so, red lights would flash and then the
whole thing would disappear and then reappear after a few seconds.
The shape was not consistent. Initially, it was a circular shape, but then would separate
and almost scatter into a 'wave' of luminescent light. At times, it oddly resembled a
The other peculiar point I'd like to mention, is how whole thing would move from right to
left. I leaned my binoculars up against the window to counterbalance any movement on my
part, but I found I had to reposition the binoculars to keep the object in view many
times. My cat even left the bedroom to come over to stand by me.
After about 5 minutes, I went on the internet and found your website. When I went back at
2:10 a.m., there was no sign of it at all. I've even continued to check for it every ten
minutes since, but I don't see it there. Could it have been merely a satellite? Some sort
of star? Planet? Whatever it was, it was very beautiful and I hope I am fortunate enough
to witness it again. If anyone can help me figure this out or offer an explanation, I'd
really appreciate it. Thanks so much for being here and reading this.
Thank you for your report. Let's see if we can explain this one. If you look again at the
same time tonight and see the light in the same spot then it is probably a star. How high
above the horizon was the light, with zero being on the horizon and 90 degrees being
straight up? There is currently a bright star in the south west at that time of the night
called Alpha Canis Major. At 1:55 a.m., it was about 11° above the horizon. At 2:05 a.m.,
it was at 9° above the horizon. At 2:10 a.m., it was at 8.5° above the horizon. Perhaps
at 2:10 a.m., it was low enough to be obscured by something like a branch, tree, building
or a fog bank?
A star or planet will also appear to move slowly when viewed through steady binoculars due
simply to the rotation of the earth. Under certain atmospheric conditions, flashing
colours are common when viewing stars or planets. The other possible, but less likely
candidate, is the planet Saturn which is in the south (not south west) but about 55° above
the horizon. Perhaps set your alarm or stay up and have a look again at 1:50 a.m. tonight.
I think it should be another beautiful, clear night and please let us know if the same
light is there.
28-Jan-2007, Langley, BC: (10:00 pm) NUFORC
I saw a bright light which looked like one of the stars until I saw it wiggling and
getting brighter and it shot up into space.
30-Jan-2007, Greenville, BC: (6:00 pm) NUFORC
The flying object was bright like the sun; it would stay in the same place then move
up and down. A few of us saw the same aircraft, or whatever it was. We all knew it wasn't
a star, it was too close, and it wasn't an airplane as it was too still for too long. This
one came from the northeast area and then proceeded to the northwest. It seemed like it
was still for minutes then it would move up and then back down. It was a circular-shaped
object and a very bright light.
This isn't the first time people around here have seen weird lights like that in the sky.
Last summer we saw aircraft in the sky, looking like they were moving in a
counterclockwise direction. There were several different colours of light on it. At that
time, it appeared there were 2 smaller aircraft around it, with the same colour lights.
30-Jan-2007, Burnaby, BC: (8:00 pm)
Located at Duthie St. and Halifax Ave. I spotted it in a south east direction from
here, at about a 20° degree angle from ground level. It is still is present in sky,
flashing red, green and blue lights.
Thank you for the accurate description. What you are looking at is the star Sirius.
The light show is due to turbulence of the atmosphere which acts as a prism especially
when the star is close to the horizon. Gavin A. J. McLeod A.Sc.T.
3-Mar-2007, Vernon, BC: (04:50 am) HBCC UFO
On the line of mountains south of Vernon (over
Kalamalka Lake, at the edge of the upper plateau), I saw a large blondish/amber-coloured
oval-shaped object sitting slightly obscured behind the mountain top. It was at least as
long as my thumb is wide, at arm’s length. That mountaintop is at least 15 km away.
This object was huge. It appeared blurry, almost hard to look at, hard to focus on. It was
quite easily the brightest thing in the sky at the time. I radioed the front desk clerk
that something was in the southern sky, and he gave a very uninterested response. I
watched the object for 10 minutes before I had to do a hall check. It never moved position
once. On my way past the front desk clerk I told him again that there was an object up on
the hill. He didn't even look up from his computer game. After the hall check (5min) I
went back outside and the object was gone.
Vernon, BC: (06:20 pm) NUFORC
I was driving South on Highway 97 at @ 6:20pm PST, just past Spallumcheen, when I saw
bright white lights fly up from between a small valley outside of Vernon B.C. (Coldstream)
I didn't see the craft land, but it was so close down to the Earth, maybe it did. I
watched as the bright lights on the craft flashed around. The lights on the craft were all
white and it rose up out of the valley, at about a 15 degree angle, almost straight up, at
too fast a rate for it to be anything that man's made. Then it hovered way up in the sky
for about 10 seconds and then zigged for 2 seconds & zagged for another 2, and then
took off straight up and out.
March 2007, Victoria, BC: (10 pm) HBCC UFO
(Witness quotes from Victoria Times Colonist April 5, 2007)
It was around 10 p.m. one night in mid-March that the Victoria woman, standing in the
driveway of her acreage, saw a UFO.
“I heard a very powerful blowing noise, almost a white noise as it grew louder just
to my left and just over the tree line. What came first was a very large, but dull,
flashing red beacon in the centre of what began to appear as a massive triangular shape.
It was like nothing I have ever seen before.
As it approached very low, just over the trees and my house, it had a very strange white
light on each side of the triangle; they seemed to be extremely bright but did not
illuminate the ground at all. As it crossed overhead I thought I should be able to get a
good look at it as it was a clear, starry night, but it brought a darkness with it. Darker
than the night. Blacker than black, making it unable to distinguish any actual lines.
From the position of the lights and the shape of the blackness I am sure it was a
triangle, quite flat in depth," the woman's statement read. "It moved in a very
strange manner, almost hovering, this incredibly massive -- about 200 feet across and
almost that long -- powerful craft moving at maybe 10 mph just over my head. It made the
strangest noise, not like any kind of engine or jet. It was all very mesmerizing, and
thinking back I really was very oddly stunned. I wanted to run to the house for my son but
I couldn't take my eyes off it. I watched as it went over my house maybe 200 feet. ... It
took up a bit of speed and altitude as it flew away. The lights very clearly started to
move horizontally, left and right very quickly. It veered off towards the ocean and was
26-Mar-2007, Aldergrove, BC: (between 7:50 and 8:00 pm)
I decided to take my dog, Bingo, out to the end of the driveway beside the mail box
(which faces northeast). I checked the mail and then looked up to enjoy the sunset for a
minute (it had been raining for a month straight, so a clear sky was a welcome sight).
While I was looking north/ northwest, over the mountains, I noticed what I first thought
was a plane, but when I focused in on it, I thought it was quite obvious it wasn't; it
looked like an extremely large upright boomerang flying left to right (south to north) in
the sky. I couldn't tell its exact size since it was in clear, open sky, but in comparison
to the mountains below it, it was about the same height. It kept flying north while I was
watching it and it seemed to be almost transparent. At one point it was extremely hard to
keep it in sight, not because of it size (it was plenty big enough to see, that was for
sure) but because it was blending into the sky so well. At one point, it almost seemed
like it was water vapor since it began to look very blurry, like mist. It was at this
point that Bingo decided to be a pain and start pulling on the leash. I thought he was
standing with his butt facing me and I went to kick him in the butt with the side of my
foot, without looking, to get him to stop. Instead, he was, in fact, facing me and I
accidentally kicked him in the face (whoops), and since his eye was already infected, I
spent the rest of the time watching the "object" for a few seconds and checking
his eye to make sure I didn't accidentally make it worse (luckily I didn't). After this, I
bent down to check Bingo’s eye and then I looked up to see the object again. It was
still flying north, though now it had gone from being a giant boomerang shape, to being a
small flat disk shape and it had gone from being almost transparent to being a very dark
black colour and it had slowed its speed considerably. It stopped and then started to
slowly fly west/ southwest.
I would have simply brushed this off as a plane since its speed was about that of an
average two to four-seater commuter plane (which is mostly what flies over my house) only
at the distance I thought it was at, private planes wouldn't be going across the sky that
fast. In fact, a plane would have been crossing the sky at only one quarter the speed of
the object (putting its speed at around 800 km/h). I couldn't tell its distance perfectly,
though I think it was somewhere between me, near the freeway and Highway 256, and the
west/northwest mountains, which is a distance of about 60-75 kms, though I could be wrong
since it never actually went in front of anything that would tell me exactly where it was.
In addition to its anomalous speed, planes don't blend into the sky as though transparent,
like this craft did, nor do they change shape, or have a boomerang shape to begin with,
nor are they as big as this one was when it was in its boomerang shape. The
"fading" effect could be a result of it being so far away that it simply became
impossible to see due to atmospheric distortion, though when it turned into a small black
disc it was easily visible and solid, not having any transparency at all, meaning it would
have to travel several hundred kilometers towards me extremely quickly when it changed (it
changed while I was looking at Bingo’s eye, which only took me 3-5 seconds, meaning
it would have travelled at thousands of km/h), and then moved away again as it faded away.
It should also be noted that this isn't the first time I've seen a UFO; I reported a
sighting here (UFOBC) as well on June 29, 2006. In fact, this sighting was in that exact
spot in the sky that I saw the first one, though this one was nothing like the first.
3-Apr-2007, Rossland BC: (9 pm – 10 pm) HBCC UFO
Like the person from Canmore who posted April 1, I, too, saw a "ridiculously huge
star". I glanced out the window after dark, and in the western sky was a very, very
large, bright round white star-like looking object that seemed to glow. It seemed much,
much too big to be a star. However, I have noticed what I have assumed to be a star in the
same spot for a few weeks now, directly west over Mt. Roberts in the early evening after
the sun goes down. I had noticed recently how it was a lot brighter than other stars in
the sky, but it was never so bright and huge as when I saw it on this evening; the other
stars were practically invisible next to this. I couldn't believe my eyes that it was so
big so I grabbed my binoculars to check it out, then the camcorder and taped for a few
minutes on the front porch around 9:30 p.m. I looked out the window again a couple more
times and it was still very bright. By 10:00 p.m. it was gone.
I could describe it as looking like a star that had suddenly moved in a lot closer to the
earth, and I would compare its size to be about what a spotlight would look like in the
near distance. Anybody else seen this?
6-April-2007, Kelowna, BC: (06:22 am) NUFORC
bright light above Kelowna, not moving or changing brightness. It was just bright as
heck and big, like a small star. It was in the eastern sky and still is as I type this wow
not moving at all.
9-April-2007, North Vancouver, BC: (01:30 pm) NUFORC
Disc that spun slowly and wobbled a bit as it glided north/east and seemed to descend
gradually. Had 4 - 5 darker circles underneath that rotated with the disc. They were black
while the main body was a dark grey colour. Made no audible noise. I recorded about 2 - 3
minutes on my camcorder.
Mid-April, 2007 Vernon, BC: (01:00 am) HBCC UFO
To the SSW of Vernon, I spotted what appeared to be
a 'throbbing' amber-coloured oval moving from the east to the west. The sky was mostly
clear, save for a very thin broken overcast in the south of the valley. The object was
moving at a steady speed, faster than any satellite in the sky, and 'throbbing'. It
appeared to get bigger and smaller as it moved along. That is the only way I can describe
it. This object was 20 times larger than the largest satellite I have seen traversing the
sky, with a definite oval shape and a definite 'throbbing' size/shape change. Very weird!
The object approached the edge of some of the overcast. Just before it entered the
overcast, a much smaller 'dot' of light spiraled down and west faster than the object
itself was moving. The 'dot' was the same blond/amber colour as the main object and
disappeared behind the edge of the cloud cover. The object was still clearly visible
through the cloud cover and emerged into another clear patch of sky. Another 'dot' of
light streaked down and west, in the exact same trajectory as the first, and winked out of
sight in the same clear patch. The object then went behind another high overcast cloud,
was visible for a couple of seconds, and then disappeared behind some willow trees in the
WSW parking lot. I estimate that the object covered 70 to 90 degrees of the sky in 15 to
25-April-2007, Williams Lake, BC: (10:12 pm) NUFORC
Stationary "Star" flashed brightly, dimmed, started moving then faded from
sight. I looked almost straight up but north easterly. I saw what I thought was a bright
stationary star or planet. It then grew very bright then dimmed to a rusty colour then
started moving to the east. It seemed to be far away like a satellite and moving slowly in
a similar manner. (I've seen some fairly quick satellites). It faded out of sight after
about 15 seconds. This did not cover a great deal of the horizon, maybe about a hand's
width from my perspective.
Surrey, BC: (3:00 pm) HBCC UFO
North from about 100th Ave at 1500 hours. Saw what was described as a very bright star in
the daytime, it appeared to have a Halo. Hovered in place for 3 hours for 3 consecutive
nights, would move to the right then back to center over and over. Then each night at
12:45 am and the final night at 01:15 am it took off heading north in a sudden flash
leaving behind a small trail.
was just below the cloud cover that was present at night (during the day it was clear). At
about 45 degree angle off the horizon and was small, no larger than a few ridges of a
quarter held out at arm’s length.
June 2007, Rock Creek, BC:
was quite a warm day, and me and my mother were getting ready to pick
up my sister from baseball. As usual, I walked out the door and was
just about to open the truck door, when something caught my eye. Above
the mountain, there was this black, moving object. It didn't seem to
move back and forth, instead, it was like it was tipping while
spinning. It stood silently in the same spot, spinning and tipping in
mid air. You could see the sunlight reflecting off of the object, and
it was black-ish and shiney.I could not figure out the size of the
object, but it was fairly huge, to be seen from above a very high
mountain. My mother came out, and we both were froze, standing in our
driveway together. Finally, we took our eyes off of it, and went to go
get my sister. It only took us about five minutes to get back. The
object was gone. It made no sense.
Victoria, BC: (11:30 am) HBCC UFO
I looked up at a float plane flying over my house I thought I saw to my right a gray
seagull riding a thermal (wings stationary). I thought of a gull because its wings had a
break in them as a birds wings do. I realized that it could not be a gull as it held a
very high elevation and it moved very fast from North to South or right to left. Just
before it absolutely disappeared before my eyes, it seemed to stop or at least turn and
travel either towards me or away from me so that it appeared that it was not moving. I
watched the sky for a few minutes after to see if it would show up again. If it had not
disappeared then I would have rationalized that I saw a military jet. There was no sound
or contrail though. Did anyone else see this thing?
Kootenay Lake, BC: (8:20 pm) HBCC UFO
family of 5 was close to the Gray Creek area on Kootenay Lake, British Columbia when the
12 year old son yelled for his family to look west and low in the sky. The father
described what they all witnessed; a long white cylindrical object which is estimated to
be approximately 150 to 200 feet in length was falling from the sky at a 45 degree angle
at a fast rate of speed. As the object descended and just before they lost sight of it, it
"appeared" to slow its speed and start to level out. Both ends of the object
seemed to be rounded and more of a shiny metallic color as they reflected the sunlight.
The father said that they were close enough to be able to hear sound if there were to be
any, but none was noticed. There were no aircraft-like features, such as fins, wings, etc.
No types of windows were seen or landing gear of any kind. Also observed was a trail of
whitish mist following from behind the object which dissipated very quickly. As mentioned
above in the report, the family lost sight of it quickly due to the trees and terrain, but
thought it did look out of place or unusual.
UFO side note: There have been a few cylindrical type objects being seen over the last
while, from Kelowna down into the Kootenay's and on the lower mainland (Vancouver, B.C.
10/11-July-2007, Kootenay Lake (Gray Creek), BC: (around midnight) HBCC UFO
HBCC UFO Research received a telephone call from a gentleman who resides in North Surrey,
British Columbia after he read the news article, "UFOs Over BC" which was posted
on the Rense website. The news article was put out by the North Thompson Valley Voice
News. My phone number was added to the article with my permission of course. The witness,
after reading the article found somewhere he was able to file his sighting report to he
The eyewitness reported seeing the same object over a two night period, and after that he
went out to look again to see if he was able to observe the object(s) on the following
nights and they were nowhere to be found. The fellow said it was hot as heck over the two
nights when he saw the objects.
The witness was outside at around midnight watering his lawn, leaning up against his truck
when the man happened to look up in the sky to see three objects in a lengthy triangle
shape across the night sky. What he saw was a bright light, with activity all around the
bright light. What he saw was a red, green and a bright white light circulating around the
bright light he originally had first observed. He said to himself, "What the heck is
this?" as there are three of these things.
The man's wife has a good friend, who is a night owl. So the fellow called the lady up on
the phone to see if she was able to observe what he was watching. The lady ended up not
being home, but rather in White Rock, BC at the time the man made the call. The fellow
asked if she would go outside and look in the area where the UFO action was taking place,
so she did and to the fellow’s surprise the lady in White Rock was able to see
exactly the same objects the witness was reporting. (I should add that the man's wife and
three sons were also witnessing this unusual event and were a little frightened as to what
they all were watching).
The object that was in the middle was moving as the eyewitness was tilting his back to
keep his eye on this event, then the object moved back to where it was originally. All
three of the lights were there in the triangular pattern for two nights, with the other
UFO activity going around the bright lights. After the two nights of viewing this event,
they were no longer visible in the following days.
Kelowna, BC: (10:00 pm) HBCC UFO
Brian, my name is (name removed by HBCC UFO) and I live in Kelowna BC. On July 11, 2007 at
around 10:00 PM. my friend and I were out in Black Mountain area sky watching, then my
cell phone rang; it was my mom and dad in Rutland near Nickel Road. They directed me to
some strange lights in the sky, just below Mars in the eastern sky. The object was
blinking bright lights red blue white orange or yellow. It didn't move at all. My friend
and I watched it for over an hour along with my parents in Rutland. It was not a plane,
satellite or helicopter. We actually saw a plane and a satellite during our time watching
it, and the object was not anything like them. Then, we looked towards the Kelowna airport
and saw another UFO exactly the same, bright blinking colorful lights but no movement. If
you would like to talk call me at (both phone numbers removed) Sincerely.
Kelowna, BC: (10:45 pm) HBCC UFO
Brian. I was sitting on my deck in the Glenmore area of Kelowna last night, July 11, 2007
at approximately 10:45 pm., looking at the lake. I noticed an object in the sky over the
lake towards Winfield, northwest from us, flashing red lights. I assumed it was a plane,
but when I looked back a minute or so later I realized that it hadn't moved. I got my
binoculars and saw there were actually several colours of lights, red, yellow, green,
circling around a round object in an up and down pattern. I called my husband and we
watched the object for about an hour - it never moved during the entire time, and was
still there when we went back into the house. If you would like to contact me my phone
number is (phone number removed by HBCC UFO), and my name is (name removed also).
Richmond, BC: (1:10 am) HBCC UFO
was a beautiful night when I was on my balcony watching a Barred Owl, bats and there was
one common Nighthawk flying around when suddenly something scared a couple of Redwinged
Blackbirds from the cedar trees. So I pointed my 10x50 Pentax PCF binoculars toward the
birds and noticed immediately 3 big, really slow flying cylinder objects in delta
formation (looked to me like a airplanes without wings) flying slowly east. There was no
engines noise at all! It is hard to exactly estimate how big the cylinders were, but I
think the cylinders in the sky were about 1/2 size of Boeing 747 and no more then 1000
meters high, and I think that I did observe it about 3 minutes before they disappeared to
Rossland, BC: (10:30 – 11:15 pm) HBCC UFO
I thought I saw a UFO, but it only turned out to be a very bright Venus. For a few months
now I have been skywatching with my binoculars, having taken an interest in many of the
UFO reports posted on this site [HBCC UFO]. I hadn't seen anything out of the ordinary,
just the usual planes, satellites and the occasional shooting star, until last night! Let
have been noticing in recent months in the early evening a stationary star-like object to
the south that is below and slightly to the right of what I presume to be Mars. I have
been intrigued by the object’s flashing colours of red, yellow and green, but because
it has always appeared stationary I eventually assumed it was just a colourful star.
However, tonight when I stepped outside to enjoy the cool evening air, at about 10:30 pm,
when I looked to the south, an object of that description barely cleared the horizon; its
position in the sky was much lower down than usual, in a more southeastward position. As I
was looking at it, it suddenly moved across the sky making a smooth straight trajectory in
a southwest direction until it stopped in the position below Mars right where I had seen
it stationary on previous nights.
another light appeared on the horizon at about the same spot where the first object
originated moments before. I then grabbed my binoculars. It was a circular orb-like shape,
like a very large glowing yellow star; it appeared to flicker and get brighter then
dimmer; in comparison, the other "regular" stars in the sky were small, crisp,
twinkly, with Mars being higher up and to the right. Anyway at this point I was thinking,
I should get my handycam, but I didn't want to miss anything with the binoculars so I
continued to watch the sky. Meanwhile the yellow one was disappearing and reappearing a
few times, each time in positions a little further to the left from where it first
appeared. I couldn't take my eyes off my binoculars when a while later a third object
appeared to the right of the bright yellow one. The third object looked similar to the
first coloured one, and then this third coloured object began to move in straight lines in
a kind of triangular formation, sometimes disappearing then flashing anew in different
spots. I couldn't describe it better than the report from Port Colbourne, Ontario where
the witness articulated that what they saw, "...took small hops at times like a
skipping stone effect. This would occur with such speed that it seemed it would be in one
spot and suddenly in another at the same instant.”
I was very astonished to see this object, with a sort of pulsating, blurred movement,
stretch out into an elongated shape that had a softer semi-opaque whitish appearance. It
was slightly thicker in the middle than at the ends. Then in a moment it shrank back to
its original size and star-like shape, and I watched for a while longer as it moved some
more in a back and forth motion. Then the objects disappeared by fading, except for the
one below Mars. I believe that a fourth star-like object appeared above the bright yellow
one, but I was so intently watching this third one that I was unable to watch the fourth
one. The whole observation took about 45 minutes. I estimate that the objects were located
at some distance away over Washington State.
just want to add something with reference to the first multicoloured object just below
Mars that appeared stationary upon my previous observations. Last month in June I was on
holiday in the Cariboo and I noticed a stationary coloured object exactly like it directly
to the north. I observed it for the whole week that I was there, at least on the evenings
that it was clear out. At that time I commented to my partner that it looked just like the
one at home in Rossland that we had seen previously to the south under Mars. I've been
wondering if it was one object in orbit, or more than one object in different places.
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.
28-Jul-2007, Vancouver (Trout Lake), BC: (11 – 11:30 pm)
was attending the Public Dreams Lantern Festival and was walking around the north side of
the lake through a crowd of thousands of people. I happened to look up west and saw an
orange glow of an object very high up. Because there was a lot of noise where I was I
could not discern if the object was making any sound at all (my gut feeling is no, it
wasn’t). The sky was partly cloudy and the object did not appear to be moving. I
remarked about the object to the group (of people I was with) but they were concentrating
on trying to move through the crowd. I looked up to the right and saw a jet airplane
moving west at a lower elevation than the orange-glowing object. I was with a group of six
people and was conscious of keeping everybody together. About 5 minutes later the object
disappeared behind some clouds and I didn't see it again.
do not know what this was. It could have been Mars, I'm not sure.
you for the report - very interesting. Which direction were you facing when you saw the
object, and how far above the horizon (degrees) was it?
was facing west and I would say it was 70 degrees off the horizon. Did anybody else see
June, July & August, 2007, Vancouver, BC: (about 11:00 pm) HBCC UFO
been quite a while since I have undertaken consideration of UFOs; the question that has
always remained in my head is: are they real or not? I have always been a fan, though, and
sought to believe they are real. Just recently, maybe over the past two months, I have
been seeing strange things in the night sky, strange moving objects. They look just like
shooting stars but without the tails and looking very naked to the eye.
strange, though, because it’s not just once in a while; it’s like, maybe, 4-6
times a night that I will see these fluttering about. Just recently, around 11:00 p.m., I
was standing on my front porch and saw a very bright large one with two more moving behind
it, zipping in the other direction. And shortly after that, in less than maybe, two hours,
I went out for a run, recording them into my mind, seeing 10 (I had to stop running to
just make sure it wasn't me). Some I have seen seem to disappear and reappear or never
seem to come back out of the background of a thin cloud.
first UFO encounter was when I was probably 13, my first year in high school, staying out
late I saw one, well, believed it to have been one. Now I'm 19 and seeing all these. I
definitely know that something strange is happening, something strange enough for me to be
seeing these zig and zag for the past 2 months, and the fact that others on my street have
seen them and still others in the local vicinity, is the weirder part. I wish I had an
answer, honestly. Maybe a real war of the worlds is actually happening above us on this
tiny rock we call home.
you to the witness for the report.
Summer 2007, Armstrong, BC:
was walking down my street late at night. It was summer, maybe August
2007, and the sky was exceptionally clear. I was admiring the stars
when I noticed what I thought was an unusually bright satellite. It was
a steady, clear white light about half a centimeter in diameter, and it
was making its way across the sky from just behind my left shoulder to
my right. I thought it was a satellite because it had an appropriately
slow pace, it seemed very high up and didn't have any of the flashing
lights that accompany an airplane. I watched it as it made its way
towards the centre of the sky above my head, and right at its apex it
stopped dead. I stopped on the side walk and watched it. It stood
perfectly still right above me for about ten seconds, then it became
slightly larger and brighter, as if it were coming closer to me. Then
it slowly moved in a straight line backwards and forwards over my head,
sometimes speeding up, sometimes slowing down, never moving more then
about a hands breadth at arms length away from its previously
stationary position in either direction. It moved backwards and
forwards as if observing me for about 45 seconds, and just when I was
really becoming uneasy it shot at a slight angle up into the sky and
disappeared. I told my boyfriend about it a couple days later and he
told me that he and his father had seen the exact same thing at the
same time that night.
Port Moody, BC: (10:30 pm)
At the above time, my wife and I were on our deck when we noticed a very bright light
moving in a straight line over our townhouse. It took about 5 minutes to travel from south
to north. It was absolutely soundless. It was unlike anything I have ever seen.
6-Aug-2007, Vancouver, BC: (10:51 pm)
was sitting on the beach with my boyfriend and I was looking up at Grouse Mountain, when I
saw a small light, like a shooting star almost, but it didn't go as fast as a shooting
star. Well, like I was saying, it was a bright light falling on top of Grouse Mountain and
before it landed it turned light orange or red. And maybe 30 sec after that I saw another
light above the mountain but turned off like a light ball.
7-Aug-2007, Prince George, BC: (about 11 pm)
witness, his wife and her sister were outside enjoying the evening sky when they saw a
very large white/amber light, slightly smaller than a full moon. Beside it was a smaller
orb about half the size. Suddenly another orb appeared at the other side of the larger one
(opposite side to the other small one):
three objects were moving about, and were “humming”. Then the formation started
to move in a NE direction. It was too fast for an airplane and too slow for a meteor.
Then, all of a sudden, there was a massive “crack”, like a thunderclap or a
sonic boom. The sky turned an eerie green and the lights sped off in an instant.
witness thought that it reminded him of “those Arizona lights” – which was
clarified as meaning the Phoenix Lights.
BC: by Thom Barker of the Kispiox/Interior News. Date of article
– August 29, 2007
Several Kispiox residents may have witnessed a rare phenomenon of nature
during the wind and lightning storm that rolled through the area on August
"We noticed this huge white
ball, about five feet around," said Pam Barnes. “It was exuding power like
crazy and moving around. I didn't know what it was. I was stunned. I saw it moving over
the rooftops and it didn't seem to have any sense of gravity, like a balloon almost."
Then, in a flash it was gone. The whole incident lasted between 10 and 15
seconds, she said.
"It was brighter than the
moon," said C.C. Barnes, Pam's four-year old son.
David Jones, a meteorologist with
Environment Canada in B.C. said the sighting is consistent with ball
lightning. "We get the odd report of ball lightning," he said. "It's a
very rare phenomenon, maybe a once in-a-lifetime experience if you're lucky."
Sightings are so rare, in fact
that despite nearly 200 years of scientific investigation, researchers are still divided
on its exact nature. Last year, two Brazilian researchers conducted an experiment that
supports the theory. Using electrodes to shock silica wafers they were able to create orbs
of electricity that mimicked the behavior of natural ball lightning.
Side Note: Brian
Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research, also contacted Mrs. Barnes and had a great
conversation over what they witnessed - an amazing and rare event is right. I will be
writing up my own report on this event as well.
13-Aug-2007, Port Coquitlam, BC: (10 – 10:10 pm) HBCC UFO
was sitting out side having a smoke. Now, I always look up when I am outside at night
because of something I saw a few years back and since then I have always wanted to know
what is going on up there. I'm looking up and I see a really bright white light go right
over my house. It stops and dims almost till I couldn't see it anymore. It now blends in
with the stars, as it looks just like one, but it was just moving a second ago. I keep my
eyes fixed on its location; it starts to move again and continues in the direction it was
going until I couldn't see it again. I am like, “What the heck? Did I just see what I
saw?” as I haven't ever seen something as close as that thing was. About 2-3 minutes
later I see 2 star-like objects going in the same direction. They don't change in
brightness but continue on until I can't see them anymore.
I have a few questions: I want to know if there were any celestial events that were going
on the date of Aug 13/07. Also, I would like to know if there is any phone reporting
center located in Vancouver. And, last but not least, I would like to know if there is
someone that I could talk to about things that I have been seeing in the night sky so that
I can better determine what I am looking at.
if you have any info about my questions please help.
you to their witness for their report.
14-Aug-2007, between Clinton & 70 Mile House, BC: (10:20 pm) HBCC UFO
Brian, This is in response to the sightings of a bright light in Maple Ridge. I went out
with the dogs last night at approximately 10:20 pm in the rural area between Clinton and
70 Mile House and, while looking at the sky, I noticed a bright light moving in the
western sky to the south. My first thought was that it must be a plane but after watching
it, I realized it was just one very bright light moving along at a great distance. It then
arched to the east, dimmed and disappeared. It was not a meteor or plane for sure.
UFO Research Note: I e-mailed the witness back and asked if what they may have
witnessed was the ISS (International Space Station) flying by; I also added the
information from the ISS website. The witness agreed that this is what was seen.

you to the witness for their report, every report is important.
14-Aug-2007, Squamish, BC:
I have a interesting and very convincing UFO photo that I
think your organization would like to have a look at.
I took the photo while I was up on Brohm's Ridge above Squamish while
conducting an Environmental Assessment (EA) for a proposed project.
I never knew it was there until recently when I was re-examining my photos
over this last weekend. The Object is definitely saucer shape and it appears
over Squamish - Howe Sound. The time of day was around 2:30 PM. The Object
is greyish with no lights visible.
This is the original photo I took while up on Brohm's
Ridge above Cat Lake Squamish BC Canada. This photo was taken with a Cannon
digital camera on August 14, 2007 at approx. 2:00 PM, the day was a partly
cloudy and warm. I was facing SW looking out towards the Howe Sound, below
is District of Squamish.
I used my photo software to zoom in on it and it definitely is a classic
saucer shape. I also used my colour curve adjustments to do some filter
adjustments and they all show the same saucer shape.
I showed a couple of my colleagues at work and they are all convinced that
this is a UFO and suggested I report it.
I live and work in the North Vancouver area.
Yes, we would very much like to take a look
at the photo - would you mind emailing us a copy? Or if you like, send
it to our postal address.
Could you also provide a few more details about the sighting? Time,
direction of travel, weather conditions, distance/altitude etc?
Thank-you, all the best,
Note: The witness included the above
information and the sighting has been updated.
Whitehorse, YT: (1:50 am) HBCC UFO
My friend and I were driving down from a lookout on the road just south of town. We were
out trying to see the Northern lights and the stars. We saw a few shooting stars and lots
of satellites, etc. As we were driving down the road, I stopped again because I wanted to
see if the Northern lights were out. We got out and we were staring upwards, facing almost
due north. Then suddenly a very bright white light came through. It was like a perfect
circle and was nothing like a shooting star. I doubt it could have been a meteor as there
was no tail behind it and, unlike a shooting star, it didn't seem to cross the sky.
Instead it grew very bright and seemed like it was almost like it was coming right down on
us. Imagine someone shining a light down on you from a deck or patio as you stand
underneath then extending their arm down so the light goes closer to you. This was very
bright and was moving slowly. It stopped for a bit and seemed to kind of hover, then
started moving slowly westward. Then it disappeared the same way as it had come. The light
was very white and there was a ring of light around the object, like a halo almost. It
appeared, then became increasingly bright to a point where we had to shield our eyes for a
second then stayed that way then slowly started moving and, as it kept moving, it
disappeared. The whole thing lasted about 20 seconds. I have no idea what it was and if
anyone knows of any good, well-documented UFO sites please repost this. I am curious if
anyone else saw anything. Cheers.
22-Aug-2007, Nanaimo, BC: (4:30 pm)
See "Sighting in
Nanaimo" for full story and 6 photos.
Port Coquitlam, BC: (about 9:25 – 9:35 pm) HBCC UFO
Heading from south to north, a bright light moved across the sky then faded out to
nothing. Minutes later the same thing occurred right above my place. The second sighting
was a lot shorter, about 10 seconds. It looked like an orb shaped object, but because of
the height of the object I couldn't make out really any shape. Did anyone in the Port
Coquitlam area see the same thing? At the time there were a lot of sirens going if that
helps (maybe there was a fire?)
27-Aug-2007 - Nanaimo,
Hi, I was lookin' into a sightin' I had durin' this past summer and sure
enough, came across a report on the very same object I witnessed. It was as stated, Aug.
22, 2007, I was outside, heard a small plane flyin' overhead, lookin'-up I noticed a bright
light above and behind a small red plane. It looked pretty much like an extremely bright
star, I was standin' with my brother and said somethin' like ''what's that ?''. We both
watched it slowly fly by, pulsin' or reflectin' the light, like your other witness said.
Only thin' different from the other report is we watched it fly over us and stop off in
the distance, hoverin' or just sittin'-up there for must have been a good 1/2 hr to 40
minutes at least. I watched it for a while, then I'd go do whatever it was I was doin',
come back an watch it some more, so I wasn't constantly watchin' it. It was a clear blue
sky, around 4 pm, don' t even recall seein' any clouds, no mistakin' it ,it was pretty
strange to see, we even said to each other,'' ufo ''. I've never seen anything close to
it, it looked like a extremely bright star ( bright like you' d see at night ), pulsin' or
whatever, it would get really bright, then fade in intensity but still visible. My brother
actually figured when it had stopped and was just stationary, he figured it would be over
Vancouver. The photos in the other report show the exact same thing we saw, actually, in
total, 4 of us saw it. I pointed it out to the 2 guys installin' the carpet, one of the
guys said "a plane or satellite'', I reckon just one of those doubters in such things is
all. It was interestin' to say the least, and like the other witness wondered, a
weather-balloon? Not sittin' in one place! Actually when it was at the just sittin' stage,
at one point it had moved to another location not far from it's original sittin' or
hoverin' spot, I could tell because of a telephone-pole that was in view. In total I
watched it on and off for more than 40 minutes, from first seein' it to when it was gone,
which unfortunately I never saw it leave. I guess that's about it. I'd be interested to
hear from your other witness who got the photos, maybe see about gettin' copies? Also to
simply let him/her know that 4 of us also saw the same thing that afternoon. (As for the
passenger plane, I never noticed it, may have been when I wasn't watchin', but that
little red plane may have seen it, as it was movin' faster than the ''object'' and would
have most likely come up from behind it and below it by quite a bit.)
My girlfriend and I were driving to a cabin in Nakusp on
HWY#6. It was taking forever to get to the ferry in Fauquier because the
roads were so twisty that you couldn’t go much faster than 60kmh. We ran
over a skunk, and feeling bad, we kept glancing back. There had been no
other cars on the road at all. The only light out there was from our
high beams. We finally saw another car’s headlights some distance behind us,
which made us feel a bit safer, just in case we hit a deer or had car
trouble or something. We were quietly listening to music when I looked up
and noticed that above the trees on top of a tall hill to the left there was
a perfect ring of lights. My girlfriend was driving and when I pointed it
out, we both tried to watch it. It soon vanished from view behind the rock
cliff running along side the narrow road. I speculated that it was just a
circle of colorless x-mas lights put up on an oddly angled satellite dish,
but as we turned the next corner, the ring of lights was right above us and
moving over our car (or us under it) now on our right hand side. It was
strange because we hadn’t taken any left curves at all, which meant it had
to be moving. I only saw it for a moment through the windshield and sunroof
before it was lost in the trees on top of the rock face above us. The car
behind us also disappeared immediately after we saw the lights. Being late
for our destination, and a bit freaked out, we decided not go back to check.
1-Sep-2007, Maple Ridge, BC: (1:00 am – 3:00
am) HBCC UFO
I am a smoker (shame on me) but I will not smoke in the
house. I exited my garage door which faces straight east. Immediately I
noticed two very bright orange stars just above my neighbor’s deck. This is
what they looked like (stars). At first, I thought perhaps they might be
planets or satellites, but I realized there is no way they would be
perfectly level. The two orange objects were perfectly level. I watched for
a time and held myself against my shed to see if they moved at all and they
where steady in the spot. I just (20 minutes ago) went outside to check and
see if, by chance, these objects are in the sky again and they are not. I
will check again before I go to bed tonight. I go out this door almost
nightly and these objects are never there. They might possibly be satellites
but they did not move. Did you receive any other reports?
5-Sep-2007, Vancouver, BC:
I was swimming in the sea at Spanish Banks and looked over
to the North Shore at the area of Point Atkinson to Horseshoe Bay. Imagine my surprise
when I saw a bright shiny something appear in that area of sky, then followed by four
other similar shiny somethings. They glowed with a light which seemed to pulsate. They
seemed to form a circle with each other which moved slowly over the area. They did not
seem to be high in the sky, about as high as helicopters might go. There was no sound,
just this light. I stood there transfixed. I had never seen anything like this in my life.
It was quite beautiful really. The phenomenon moved slowly away from Horseshoe Bay towards
Vancouver Island. Then, quite suddenly, everything disappeared! All the different points
of light disappeared simultaneously. I wondered if I had seen a mirage. I am not a UFO
aficionado, but this gives me cause to pause.
Did anyone else observe this? Surely there must be some information out there on what
happened that day over the Straights of Georgia.
7-Sep-2007, Victoria, BC: (9:30 pm)
My husband and I were just returning from picking up our daughter from work
and we were about five minutes from our home when I spotted a very large
bright light which looked like a large dome and had a flat-bottom shape. It
could have been 100 feet across in length and very large. I told my husband
to slow down and look up and we all believed it to be a UFO. We have no
street lights where we live and this object was hovering over the large
trees and not moving! When we came up around the corner it was gone, just
like that. I felt as though it was watching us coming up the windy road and
knew we were watching. It was a very surreal feeling but we all knew what we
had just witnessed!
We have also seen many strange sightings in the past six months in the
highlands in our previous residence. These UFOs looked very different in
that they had either 1 or 2 flashing lights, not like an airplane. These
would also just sit hanging in the sky and not move either way and they were
way too low to be stars or aircraft since aircraft don't hover!
9-13 Sept-2007, Comox, BC: (12:00 am – 6 am) HBCC UFO
The first night - long boarding late at night
(best done late at night due to lack of cars) - there was a bright orange
ball of light in the sky, not as big as the moon, but much larger than a
star. This was around 4:00 am, when dawn was breaking. To my surprise, there
were other similar things higher up in the sky. I started searching the sky
carefully to notice there where some of these "things", which changed color
constantly from red to blue to white to orange etc. These sightings
continued to happen each and every night after, more and more of these
strange things in the sky. On one of the last nights we used some binoculars
and what we saw of these things on a closer scale was indescribable. I shall
continue to watch the sky each night until they are gone.
UFOBC Note: Interview to follow.
10-Sep-2007, Maple Ridge, BC:
(10:30 – 11:30 pm) HBCC UFO
I was out with my dogs in the backyard, and
originally saw a single blue, sporadically flashing light somewhat to the
south. It was moving very slowly at first, heading in a west-southwest
direction. It changed speed occasionally. It did not follow a straight line,
but wandered. After watching it for a few minutes, I noticed another blue
light trailing it. The first light had been a very sharp, distinct light,
but the second one was larger and more diffuse. They both continued on a
roughly westerly path until they reached approximately a 45° angle from the
horizon. Then they tightly turned back around and doubled back to roughly
where I saw the first one originally. After watching for about 10 minutes, I
called my husband outside to watch. We watched these two blue lights for at
least 15-20 minutes as they moved around erratically (but slowly) in a
central area of the sky (approx 30-35 degrees south of overhead), and they
changed positions in relation to each other. The intensity of the flashes
varied from very faint, to very bright, and was not rhythmic.
At approx: 10:45 pm, we saw a much bigger, brighter object move quickly, but
erratically, from the east-southeast to almost overhead, where it suddenly
changed direction and headed almost straight west. It appeared to have four
distinctive bright white lights in a square pattern, much brighter than the
blue lights (which were still visible and moving). It stayed in view for
approximately five minutes. At the same time, we saw a fourth light, also
fast moving, and white, but much smaller, come from the north. Being more
fascinated by the larger, bright object, we lost track of this one.
Shortly after the bright white object had disappeared from view, the two
blue objects faded quite a bit, and very soon, stopped flashing completely
(as far as we could tell). We went inside for a little while to warm up.
After around 15-20 minutes (approx. 11:15 pm), we went back outside and
within a few minutes saw a single white flashing light moving around a small
area almost directly overhead. This was about the same brightness as the
initial blue light and also flashed rhythmically. Its movements continued
for a few minutes, and then it faded from view like the blue lights had done
None of these objects made any discernable noise and they did not resemble
the movements of planes, which cross overhead very frequently (we saw and
heard four in various parts of the sky while we were out watching the
lights). We stayed outside for another ten minutes roughly, but saw no other
Thank you to the witness for their report.
11-Sep-2007, Creston Valley, BC:
(about 3:30 am) HBCC UFO
Very similar to another sighting: Maple
Ridge, British Columbia Three Glowing White Lights. (The witness is
referring to: Maple Ridge, British Columbia Two Blue Lights Moving
I noticed the three objects moving northeast across the sky but, unlike the
other sighting, they did not stay in a uniform pattern. Two of them were
more in front and one sped up and slowed down relative to the other one and
they sometimes veered closer then back apart while the one on the rear
trailed behind at a distance of about three times the distance of the two in
I could not estimate an altitude but they traveled across my field of
vision, approximately 90°, in less than five minutes. I often watch
satellites in the night sky here as the valley is relatively free from the
"aurora" commercials being in a very remote place. They could be seen easily
and clearly in a very clear sky. These moved much more quickly than
satellites usually do and they definitely were independent of each other
based on the way they kept changing their positions relative to each other.
I have been watching satellites since the '50's and have watched them over
various countries while traveling in North America and Europe. I have never
seen anything like this, not even close.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
11-Sep-2007, Victoria, BC: (4:10
I was sitting on my front lawn reading a book as my baby slept in his car
seat. I do this often, putting my boy to sleep by taking him for a drive.
The sky was clear. Looking up into the sky, I noticed what I thought was a
ball of fluff floating high in the sky.
It seemed to be floating, on a calm wind, moving from SW to NE. After a few
seconds it wobbled back and forth erratically as if was caught in some draft
of changing wind. All of a sudden, it rapidly took off in a NE direction. (I
thought, “Wow, am I seeing things!”). I kept looking around and it happened
again! This time it seemed closer. It was very high in the air still but I
could see its shape, much like a crescent moon, 1/2 to 1/3 the size. It was
dark on one side and light on the other. Again, it was floating with the
wind, slowly, when it began to wiggle back and forth rapidly and shot off in
a NE direction. In less than 2 seconds it was out of sight.....
If I only saw it once I might say it was nothing but it happened twice! I'm
not a bull*****er. It happened so fast I just don't know what to think.
22-23 Sept-2007, Qualicum, BC:
(Evening) HBCC UFO
Has anyone else viewed a bright white object
in Qualicum this past weekend? (Sept. 22/23 07) This was far brighter than
the largest planet, certainly not a satellite or aircraft, (I work on
aircraft and am not mistaken) and unlike anything I've ever seen. It
constantly flashed like 2 or 3 bright white strobe lights and was larger
than a dime at arms reach, and moved very, very slowly from right to left,
then slowly dropped in altitude until I lost sight of it behind trees. I saw
it for about 3 minutes, long enough to get my son and girlfriend out of bed
to look at it.
8-Oct-2007, Willow Point, Campbell
River, BC: (4:28 am – 5 am) HBCC UFO
I went out for a smoke in my backyard,
partially under the balcony, at 4:28 a.m. I was just over halfway through my
smoke, when the sky went from dark to as light as when there's a full moon.
I looked up and there was a large brilliant - brighter than the moon- object
in the sky. It zoomed up, getting dimmer as it rose, then disappeared. The
light obscured its shape. It looked pretty close to the ground – 500 ft to
1000 ft? – I’m not sure, and it scared the hell out of me - ever since we
saw the 150-footer up close I've been scared of them; I wasn't scared of
them before that. I ducked under the balcony, reasoned that if they wanted
to do anything to me then hiding there wouldn't help, so I went out from
under the deck and looked up. I didn't see anything. Whatever it was, it was
gone. I finished my smoke, went inside to the front of the house, went out
in the front yard area, looked, saw nothing. I went back inside quickly. I
was still freaking scared. I checked the time, it was 5:01:30 a.m. I've been
seeing UFOs for years, all different kinds of them, from far away to up
close, alone, with family, and with friends. This first started in Courtenay
in ‘96 or ‘97.
I’ve seen as many as 23 UFOs at a time in the sky. My younger daughter has
seen an alien looking into her room, peering around the corner of the door
from the hallway. She hid under the bedcovers until she thought it was gone.
We've had missing time before, strange marks on our bodies, fluorescent
markings and stains seen under UV light that don't wash off, and I've had a
visible implant in my left cheekbone and two implants, which, at different
times, came out of my mouth. I threw away the first one, after which I
thought, "What the hell did I do that for?” I contained an impulse to throw
away the second one (it came out of the roof of my mouth). I showed it to my
younger daughter but, as it was sitting on my finger tip, it seemingly
jerked (only way to explain it). It fell to the floor and, for the life of
us, we couldn't find it, and we searched on hands and knees, section by
After I saw the UFO this morning I went to
bed and had two dreams, and a dream(?) in-between. Full recall is fuzzy now;
I should have written them down but this is what I can remember clearly: the
first dream was a sex-type dream (I did not view the sex in my dream). There
where several groups of people (men?). I was a "breeder"- that was the
impression, anyway. I was to have sex with only certain members of a certain
group. As I said before, I did not view any sex. Then I had a really weird
dream where my eyes where being analyzed. I had to track movement while
"things" were staring in my eyes, without moving my head. Whoever they were,
they were impressed with the outcome of my eye movements. Like I said, it
was strange. The second dream was similar to the first, except my daughter
woke me up near the end of it, so it couldn't have been anything nefarious.
I haven't had sex in over two years; I have
no interest in it whatsoever. My family is going through a tough time right
now: my daughter was sexually abused, the offender pleaded guilty, and we
are awaiting sentencing, so, as you can probably understand, sex is the last
thing on my mind. However, I haven't had a period in 1 and 2/3 months and my
cycle is normally regular. It doesn't skip due to stress. I went through
this past year of hell with no cycle changes, and my health is the usual, so
the lack of normalcy with my period is unusual and a little unsettling. I
haven't been to the doctor yet to get checked out, but if it doesn't show up
soon I will have to go. I feel kind of uncomfortable though - what would I
say to the doctor? Anyways, that's my report. There’s way more in it about
other stuff than what I just saw this morning, so sorry about that. There is
more I could talk about and elaborate on, but I'm rambling, and other people
want to use this computer. If you want to email me you can and I'll report
anything else I see or recall if you are interested in actual
experiences/effects beyond sightings.

I couldn't sleep so I went to sit in my
solarium . I was sitting in the dark looking up at the sky and I saw four
big bright round yellow hazy orbs or balls. They were changing formations
and moving across the sky very quickly . I opened my window and watched
through my binoculars and they moved out of sight quite fast. They did not
make any noise. I see a lot of planes go across here but this was not a
plane or anything like a plane.
Thank you for submitting your sighting
report so promptly. Your report came to us at 1:17 am. I have a few
How long did you observe the orbs for?
Could you be more specific about which directions they moved in?
Could you specify some of the formations that you saw them form?
Martin Jasek, UFOBC
I observed the four orbs for about five
minutes. They were moving very fast. They came from the east moving
erratically towards the west. They started out with the four yellow round
orbs in a straight line then they quickly went to where the two middle orbs
moved out from the line to the left, so it looked kind of like the shape of
a boomerang, then they quickly changed into what looks like the four dots on
the number four on a dice. Would you have any idea what this could be? I
keep my binoculars on my window sill so I looked through them. The only way
I can describe how it looked was it looked like they were doing synchronised
dancing. They were a hazy yellowy green colour. There was no sound at all
16-Oct-2007, Grand Forks, BC:
(10:15 pm) HBCC UFO
The witness was closing his living room
blinds in their home when he saw a bright circular/round-shaped light in the
sky. He thought it looked unusual so he walked out onto the porch. The light
was moving side-to-side and to different positions in the sky, still at a
very low altitude and at a distance away. It was a cloudy night, no stars
were visible and its movements were just so strange that he kept his eyes
glued to it. Its brightness was approximately the same as the brightness of
the planet Venus and the light kept dimming and coming back brighter again
and moving closer to his location. At its closest point, it turned out not
to be one single bright light, but a ring of numerous white/blue lights,
like a Hula-hoop, as he was able to see the ring shape of the object as it
maneuvered around low in the sky. The witness called out for his wife and
children to come and watch, but soon after he called out the object just
blinked out; he said the sighting lasted for a good 2 minutes or so and it
may have been the size of his pickup truck when looking at it at its closest
18-Oct-2007, over Newcastle Island in
Nanaimo Harbour, BC: (5:15 pm) HBCC UFO
I was out on the deck at the front of the
ferry to Nanaimo from Gabriola Island on the 5:10 run with my camera and
binoculars experimenting taking shots through the binocular eyepiece. I took
about ten shots that way, not being able to see whether or not the shots
were out of focus. I only discovered this image when I processed the shots
and deleted all of them but for this one. I was not aware of any craft when
taking the pictures. It is quite unmistakably lens shaped with the sun
reflecting from the other side in the late afternoon sunset.
Thank you to the person for their report and
photo. Photo is copyrighted to the owner.
21-Oct-2007, between Black Creek and Courtenay, BC:
(between 10:15 and 10:30 pm) HBCC UFO
I just drove to Black Creek from Courtenay, B.C. and saw
a bright, large orange-yellow "ball" rapidly descending at about a 45 degree
angle in the southern sky. Just as I said, "What is that?" it disappeared
down into the trees. I don't have a clue what it could be but it was
definitely something large and different!
Hi Brian, thanks for responding. The date was Sunday,
October 21st. I saw it while I was driving west on Macaulay Rd. (just off
the highway in Black Creek.) It was raining, so no stars/planets were
visible. That's why it was so startling! Again the time was between 10:15
and 10:30 P.M. Interesting, eh?
Thank you to the witness for their report. Also if
someone else witnessed this sighting, please do write to me here at HBCC UFO
We were having a backyard fire after chopping wood all
day. Myself, 3 other adults, and 2 children were watching the full moon. To
the lower right of her we noticed 2 very bright stars. Nobody could figure
out what they were doing there. You see, 3 of us are wiccan and know our
stars in relation to the moon. As we talked it over the 2 stars flew away to
the east and quickly disappeared. Each of us confirmed what we had just
Late October 2007, Delta, BC: (8:00 pm)
This sighting happened a while ago. I was
driving home from Ladner (which is in the district of Delta, BC) to
Tsawwassen. I can't remember the exact date anymore, but I think it was in
late October of 2007. It was already dark (it must have been around 8
o'clock or so). I was about half way home when I saw a formation of lights
in the distance. They where flying over Boundary Bay from south to north and
where flying in a V shape formation...I don't know the altitude, but they
where quite high in the sky. At least 10,000 feet. There where about 10 or
so craft I could make out. They were just visible as small balls of
light...because it was so dark and since they where quite far away, I
couldn't make out any shape. After about 10 seconds or so, the road had a
turn, so I lost sight of them through the front windshield and trees blocked
my view on the side. Anyways, I though it might be interesting to know if
other people had the same sighting of the UFO's around that time.
11-Dec-2007, Granisle, BC:
Updated added Feb 14th 2008 Please follow link for full sighting report. Click HERE.
29-Nov, 5,7 & 13-Dec-2007,
Nov 27 - A friend and I were walking to another friend’s (place), when
we looked towards the northeast and saw a faint light swaying back and forth. At
first, I thought it was a logging truck across the lake but it was far too high to have
been a logging truck; the way it was moving would have been an impossible feat for a
logging truck to accomplish. The light blinked and faded away.
Dec 5 - My girlfriend and I were sitting in my living room when I saw what
appeared to be the same flashing light, only a couple of miles away from where I had seen
it before, just a couple degrees shy of being east. Once again, it swayed back and
forth. Now my girlfriend, not being the type of person that believes in this type of
phenomenon, was scared. Once again, this object swayed in the sky, but this time
rose higher, and, also once again, it was far too high to be a logging truck on the other
side of the lake.
Dec 7 - Something completely different happened - I was walking home from
atop the hill where my friend lives, when I heard a low, but far from faint, rumbling
sound, somewhat like a generator, but it was far too loud, yet at the same time (too)
quiet, to be a generator. Another thing, it was hot this night, and that’s not
normal because prior to this night, even earlier that day it had been terribly cold, so it
bothered me why it was so warm when I heard this rumbling sound. Anyway, as I made
my way down the hill and home, I stopped for a brief second to try and figure out what
this sound was. It got suddenly noticeably louder and then almost as fast as it had
gotten loud, faded away and I heard nothing for the rest of the night, except of course
what it is I’m reporting in this paragraph: something followed me. As I walked
into my driveway I looked beyond the carport into my back yard - behind our property is a
small clutch of trees - there was something among them. I don’t know what, but
it was there. Out of fear I ran inside and did not stay to see what it was.
From what I saw, it was mid-sized, not tall but not short. It was no deer or
moose or animal of any kind because those animals cannot crouch and peer from the trees in
the manner this thing did. Besides, it was too small.
Dec 13 - A friend of mine, his mother (both of whom say they have had UFO
experiences lately and have genuinely been losing sleep over these strange happenings) and
I went to the lake to see if we could see anything else. It was cloudy and overcast,
except for one small spot in the sky. We were sitting in a three-seater truck and I
was beginning to think we were not going to see anything. I was sitting in the
middle and I put my head back and was looking at what I could see in the sky from the back
window. Suddenly, while I was gazing at a star, the star moved and shot across the
sky into the clouds.
One more strange thing – I’m not certain if this has anything to do with the
past events, but I can get countless eye witnesses to a weird cloud formation that has
covered the northern direction of Granisle for 3 weeks. Now, the same cloud never
dissipated until yesterday and even then it was only briefly; it was the first time the
cloud had disappeared in 3 weeks, then suddenly, it was back again. Again, I’m
not sure if this has anything to do with all these strange happenings, but you never know.
I swear on my life,
prior to these events, I was not a believer in any of this; I absolutely
loathe the idea of there being other life out there, but here in this small
town I have witnessed things I wish I will never witness again. This is the
utmost truth and I hope to get a reply.
Also, the friend I accompanied last night, and his family, have had frequent
experiences with seeing these lights and also seeing the same creeping
figure move through the trees, as I have.
Victoria, BC: (9:15 pm)
Orange ball descending
in a straight line from south to north. No tail, no sound. We are on an
east-facing mountain with a drop-off to the ocean of 900', approximately 1/2
mile to the east. The object was visible until it dropped below this
horizon. There are more mountains at about 8 miles further to the east but
it was not obscured by them. I assume its trajectory was between my location
and these mountains, meaning it would have crashed within 8 miles of me into
the ocean. There was no sound, no wind, weather, cloud or fog interference.
Ridge, BC: (3:00 pm)
On Monday, 10 December 2007 at 3 p.m., I was walking east on Dewdney Trunk
Road when I observed an oval-shaped object, orange/copper in colour,
approximately 1000 metres ahead of me. It appeared from the north side of
Dewdney Trunk Road, heading southeast. At first I thought it was a balloon;
it seemed to zigzag through the air. After I briefly lost sight of it, it
reappeared above Dewdney Trunk Road, heading west at a height of
approximately 500 feet and a distance of 500+ metres. On the front and
centre of the object I could see a blinking light. I now thought it was a
helicopter, however, no sound could be heard nor could I see any rotor
blades, etc. I glanced over my right shoulder to look at the position of the
sun and to see the colour of the sky thinking that the object would be
reflecting that colour. When I looked back, the object was high in the sky,
2000-3000 feet maybe, somewhere above McMillan Island. The blinking light
was now on the right side of the object which was motionless. It did not
move or sway; it was perfectly still. I looked ahead of me to a bus stop
hoping someone else was looking at the object (they were not) and when I
looked back the object was gone.
*UPDATE* Jan 10th
I had the pleasure of
speaking face-to-face with the witness of this case on Jan 3rd 2008, and
confirmed many of the details provided in the original report. The witness
described the object as "swimming through the air" rather than moving around
at harsh angles. Given the object's size of 1cm at arm's length, when the
witness believes the object to be at around 1,000m away, we can calculate
the object's diameter as 16.6m or 54 feet across. Below you will find my
The great part of this
sighting is that the witness was able to re-trace and measure distances to
known reference points and able to, in my opinion, come up with some
credible distances, key to this type of sighting.
10-Dec-2007, Lake Cowichan, BC: (about 5:20
While finishing up tarping my boat, I
was looking up at the peak of the A-frame I built on the deck to support
the tarp. The peak is some 20' off the ground, similar to a house in
height. Looking almost due north I noticed what appeared to be a
satellite moving across the sky in a NW direction. Immediately, though,
I knew it couldn't be, due to a second light tracking parallel. After
observing for 15 or 20 seconds, I walked away from the roadway and into
a dark area behind my shop. From there, I was able to see better and
what I saw astounded me. Although faint, I could make out that there
were distinct white lights between the two white lights on the ends. The
two end lights were equal in intensity to the surrounding stars, while
the lights in-between were washed out. I believe what I was looking at
was a trailing view of this object. The distance between the two bright
lights was vast, the width of three thumbs held up. The overall shape
was a boomerang-like wing but with fewer rakes.
I observed this anomaly for some three
minutes. In that time the craft traveled, at best, 30 degrees across the
sky before traveling out of sight. With the left light fading first, I
believe it turned slightly toward the north. The sky is perfectly clear.
I mention that because there was no trail left to see. And no sound
whatsoever. I waited a respectable amount of time for any sound to
travel my way before walking away. There was nothing, not a peep.
15-Dec-2007, Sunshine Coast, BC:
(between 03:00 – 06:00)
I awoke in the night, used the washroom and went back to bed. We can see
the Merry Island lighthouse from our bedroom window. I noticed another
light behind and to the right of the lighthouse just at the top of
Lasqueti Island. It at first appeared to be another lighthouse as there
was a large light circling a smaller light. The large light appeared to
be attached to the smaller light. The light was not shining out as a
lighthouse would. All the lights were bright white. There is no other
lighthouse in that direction.
This object was lighting up the sky above it. It appeared to be moving
in my direction but then went down behind the island, like a setting
sun. All the while the larger light was circling the smaller.
I judge the object to have been between 50 and 100 feet wide (about 1/4
to 1/2 inch). I watched the object for what seemed to be just a few
minutes before it disappeared. Once the object disappeared, I noticed a
smaller light moving in the direction of Comox. I watched this light for
awhile until I determined that it would have been a boat as it was slow
moving and staying in the same direction.
I suppose this could have been a military manoeuvre or a search and
rescue action. The first object seemed too big for either and the lights
were bigger than any helicopter that I have experienced.
Mid-Dec-2007, West Vancouver, BC:
It was a clear cold day and as I was
working outside I glanced up in the sky and saw a cluster of white lights or
perhaps opaque objects that were reflecting the light of the sun. The
objects moved uniformly and numbered close to a dozen. They travelled from
south east to north west from Vancouver up towards Squamish, possible in a
subtle arc. There was no noise and they disappeared from view which makes me
conclude they might have been at very high altitude or even outside the
I initially thought these might be
military aircraft flying in formation but thought I would submit regardless.
