1-Apr-2019, Nanaimo, BC:
you received any reports regarding strange, brilliant,
white flashing lights over / near north Nanaimo last
contacted RCMP here and their response was ‘strange’. The
officer said “we have been told to tell you that it’s a
lights were perfectly stationary, no movement at all. We
used the constellation of Ursa Major as a reference point.
were viewing them ne 60 degrees from our deck. A direct
line to the mainland puts them approx Gibson/ Vancouver
information would be gratefully received
did receive a video last night that we haven't posted
online yet. I will forward you a copy for now. (we have
now posted it)
for forwarding these. Yes they are the same 'lights'
obviously from a different angle.
live in North Nanaimo and witnessed them from home with my
two youngest sons (13 and 11 years old.)
- took my dog out before settling for the night. as always
I turned off the back door light to scan / view the sky
conditions (I have 'built' a prototype sky viewing
platform that needs testing) as I do each evening at
around this time. I noticed three very bright lights
- after collecting a pair of binoculars, my camera and
iPhone I called my boys out onto our upstairs deck to see
these lights. They were not in a straight line, but close
proximity to each other, and directly below the 'pan
handle' of Ursa Major. We were looking NE 60 degrees as
per app on iPhone.
watched the lights with great curiosity, postulating,
guessing and theorizing what they could be.
- approx - my 13 yr old noticed a smaller light that
seemed to move from the North towards these lights,
smaller, flashing but not as bright.
- approx - smaller fourth light began to fade and move
- approx - the three lights began moving North, still as
bright, still moving slowly yet in a very stable and
approx - lights were all but out of sight, dimmed, not as
viewable as previously.
- I called the non-emergency RCMP line and spoke to a
dispatch officer. She told me that there were reports of
these lights and an officer had been dispatched and
investigated. The officer returned his call stating all
was well. The next thing she told me raised my suspicions.
"We have been told to tell you that it's kites..." - I
didn't ask what they were, I didn't prompt this reply.
I asked where the officer had been as I was in the North
End, she wouldn't say.
I asked for the responding officer's name and contact
number, she wouldn't give it out.
I asked if the official story is still kites, as the wind
/ breeze that evening would not be conducive to the
stable, stationary state that these lights were in. She
said it's kites.
- I contacted the Global News desk in Vancouver and asked
if they had any such reports, briefly outlining the
contents of this e-mail. He said they hadn't and were very
interested. Finishing the conversation they asked if any
video was available. I said I hadn't any due to light
pollution, ambient lighting from my home interfering with
my phone and camera.
conclude. I dismiss out of hand any kind of kite or
'drone' activity causing this effect. The wind speeds at
altitude would not allow for such a steady and stable
control of such. We used the constellation Ursa Major as a
reference point to deem if the light were moving, swaying
or being buffeted by the wind. They were not.
quick google bounce does however show a number of years
ago a man did fly a box kite with a lantern attached,
since then this seems to be the go to 'remedy'.
don't doubt that the explanation is man made, but not
kites and not drones.
path of this lights did mirror another interesting siting
the day before, again these may have been 'balloons' or
kites, but their motion and lack of interference from
nature makes me doubt this.
this helped a little.
Early Mar-2019, Nanaimo, BC:
don't know the exact date, but about 6 weeks ago I was
driving on the island hwy in Nanaimo, BC. It was very
early morning and very foggy. I looked up at the foggy sky
and noticed a very bright white light moving at about
30-40 km per hr from west to east for about 20 seconds
until it disappeared in the fog. Now, there is no way a
plane or helicopter would be flying this low in very foggy
conditions. I would never have known how to report this
until I just discovered this site, and this is not the
only ufo sighting I've experienced on Vancouver Island. I
have seen about 4-5 very curious looking ufo's over the
years - one round in shape and red in colour, moving
slowly across the sky at night over Victoria, turning 90
degrees without slowing or speeding up, too slow to be a
plane and at 2 am in the morning can't see this being a
helicopter. I happened to have a very powerful laser
pointer on me so I had pointed it at it. It stopped for a
split second then continued. I wish I had thought of
recording the incident but was too caught up in the
4-May-2019, Vancouver, BC:
was Saturday night atop Queen Elizabeth park facing east.
I have two more videos if you want them I would like to
remain anonymous in this I am just curious as to what the
were pretty sure they are not drones due to the distance
23-May-2019, Mill Bay. BC:
took this picture of the sky when I saw something in the
clouds when I zoomed in on it this is what I saw. This was
near millbay b.c. zoom in on the circled area.
for the photo. Sadly the detail just isn’t there to make
any type of positive identification. On the balance of
probability (meaning in all likelihood) it is a bird, with
the central bulge being the body and the wings on each
side mid flight.
could it be a craft? Sure – but there simply isn’t enough
information to tell.
said all of that, I would very much like to have more
details of the event – date/time, location, direction
(facing). If it was an object perhaps someone else saw it
as well, and can add to the details.
26-May-2019, Maple Ridge, BC: (11:30 pm)
live in Maple Ridge BC, Silver Valley. Approximately 11:35
pm, I was witnessing bursts of bright white light high in
the sky in the South. I was looking at the same lights
directly overhead, one of them shot North! As I turned to
face North, 4 circular objects in a direct line traveling
West to East passed by! They were equally spaced. Then the
two middle objects became closer and they all adjusted
their speed. At that time also there was sparkling orange
lights being emitted from all four objects!!! I ran
inside, got my wife and she saw them also as they
travelled East! Totally blown away by what I witnessed.
31-May-2019, Rolley Lake, BC: (3:00 am)
this while it's still fresh in my memory before I go to
sleep. I was at the beach at Rolley Lake in British
Columbia, about an hour outside Vancouver at around 3:00
am on May 31, 2019. Me and a friend were chatting and
looking at the constellations when my friend noticed about
8 moving objects flying in a straight line from North to
South. They almost looked like stars but in a traveling
formation and two of them were even beside each other.
Including some of the stragglers, there had to have been
over 10 objects in total all moving on the exact same
path. What made me think they weren't satellites was their
uniform formation and how the lights would dim and
disappear, only to reappear down the projected path
seconds later. It was similar to an object I saw last
Summer over Hayward lake. I hope to start seeing them more
1-Jun-2019, White Rock, BC:
bright white light with small red light beside it hovered
over the water off of white rock for the night.
plane even approached it and turned around!
evening June 1st.
10-Jun-2019, Vancouver, BC:
sent these but may have messed up so this is a resend of
pictures taken a split second apart on a notepad made by
ASUS brand (kool). I think it is 8 megapixels.
never noticed that object in the sky and heard nothing.
Friends say it is a plane.
zoomed in on the original images and the object in the
second photo is clearly a bird. Our conclusion is that
there must have been at least a few seconds delay between
15-July-2019, Victoria, BC: (5 - 6 pm)
saw this object from the backyard of my apartment in
mid-July, 2017 around 17h-18h. The object was coming from
the south and although the video makes it look like the
object was far away, with my eyes it was about 300
metres. The vesel was always in movement (ex:
turning around almost backward) and when it passed my home
as you can see in the video, I went inside to go to the
front and in about 10 second when I got to the front the
object was really far in the sky and it was spraying white
stuff and I lost it from my vision after 2 or 3 spray.
February 2017, Prince Rupert, BC: (about 11 pm)
video was taken February 2017, and it was taken over Mount
Hays in Prince Rupert, BC. I was driving home after
kickboxing and got some food because I stayed later that
night. I think it was around 11pm. Nothing was announced
and no one was reported missing. Mount Hays doesn’t have
very many hikers. The orb did not move and was honestly
huge. The cell tower can be seen in the video when it is
zoomed out as a small dot in the darkness. I had been
staring at it for 30 or so seconds before I remembered to
take out my phone and record it.
