I met John a few years ago
and once in a while we would bump into each other. He would tell me about this area (near
Mission) and that it was called the twilight zone. Any ways, he used to tell me the things
that he saw and I was skeptical because I have never seen anything before. But now that
has changed with what I have seen and heard. I've been living here for over a year now
renting a room.
On Aug 24, 2001 John was up and about. That was around 1:15 am and for some reason he just
happened to look out the window that night and he spotted this object in the sky. He then
came into my room and woke me up and he asked me to take a look at this. I have never seen
anything like this before and the object was clear to the naked eye, that's how bright it
He asked me to take a
picture of it. I stood there arguing with him that it won't work, there was no light. The
distance was also the other reason for arguing. I was sure that the camera couldn't see it
because it was pitch black and there is no flash for it, but I took a few pictures of it
John and I were watching
this object go up and down, left and right, sometimes fast and other times slow, then it
would just stay in that spot for a few minutes. Then the object would move again at a
I didn't stay up for long
as it was cold and also I was tired and had other things on my mind. I didn't really
believe what I was seeing and I was sure that the object wouldn't show up on the film. I
was told that the object was there till about 3:00 am and then just vanished in the blink
of an eye.
I know that these things
exist but until you see one for yourself, people will think that you are crazy or on drugs
or what ever may be.
A few days later I went
and got the film developed. When I got the pictures back I was quite astonished to see
that my camera did get the object as I thought it wouldn't.
About a week ago John and
I came across a picture nearly identical to mine and that was taken in Chilliwack BC in 1997 and seeing that, I was totally floored
to see a image on the internet of a similar if not the same UFO.
Analysis by Martin
Jasek and Gord Heath, Scans by Dwight Atkinson
The witness lent the
negatives to UFO*BC who had two images scanned at 2700 dpi (dots per inch). The images
were brightened to bring out details in the shadows as well as darkened to bring out
details in the highlights as shown below.
Frame 6 - original scan
Frame 7 - original scan
Frame 6 - brightness increased
Frame 7 - brightness increased
Frame 6 - darkened
Frame 7 - darkened
The following conclusions
can be drawn:
- It is apparent that motion
of the object or camera occurred during both exposures as there is a difference in the
shape of the light between Frame 6 and 7.
- The original and brightened
scans indicate a reflection of a solid object to the left of the light.
- The exact shape of this
solid object could not be determined as it is also blurred by its motion.
- The top of the light in the
darkened Frame 7 shows two bright spots indicating that the light source was made up of
multiple light sources.
- There is insufficient
detail in the images to determine what the light source or object could be.
A further analysis was
performed by looking closer at the darkened Frame 7 below:
The above image shows that
there could have been multiple flashing lights. A possible shape of the light sources is
also shown although inconclusive; the object may have had one larger light with two
flashing ones near the top.
