Observed from the porch of his residence (indicated as witness "X" on map)
- first observed as a dot coming across the sky from South over the water to
North/Northwest (towards Tsawassen Ferry terminal). Opaque gray
"primer"-coloured sphere under 1000 feet in altitude, approximately 25
feet in width, emitting no sound, no heat and no colour. The whole event
was fast - 3 to 4 seconds. When the witness first saw it he thought it was a
missile, and was expecting a sonic boom.
The object approached his
location on a roughly parallel heading to the shoreline, but slightly
towards the ocean (NNW). The object stopped, zig-zagged towards the shore,
and resumed its original flight path, accelerating out of sight towards
the North (see diagram).
When the witness first sighted
the object (when it was just a dot), he thought it was a missile, but he
now believes that it was some sort of probe doing a recon of the shore.
