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.
