SIGHTING REPORTS FROM 2014
UPDATED - June 2nd, 2016
January 2014, Terrace, BC: (daytime)
single large disc shape sat still in the blue sky beside a hill as if
it was peering around it with I think 3-4 witnesses ..... moved left
slow then right then left and as it moved left it had lit up fully and
6-Jan-2014, Vancouver, BC: (5:45 pm)
evening (last night) I was going to the garbage and happened to notice
the crescent moon as it was a clear and starry night. To the right of
the moon was a red-orange circle which I thought was a star, maybe
Jupiter. This red-orange circle was a bit big for a star though. This
circle of orange-red had on either side of it these strands that fanned
out, they were also roughly the same colour. I thought it might be a
helicopter because it didn't move as I watched it. As I was in a hurry
to go somewhere so I stopped watching for a few seconds and when I
looked up again the circle of red-orange was now without the
tendrils/strands that were previously coming off the left and right
side of the red-orange circle, and, the circle had moved over further
to the right of the Moon or further west, it had also
gotten smaller in diameter. I began walking towards the garage and I
noticed the circle was constricting and within a matter of seconds was
I returned home later that evening I went online to see if
any local news had reported a weird sighting. I live roughly in
the vicinity of South Cambie and this past summer some model
aviation club had staged a "ufo" over the field at Nat Bailey Stadium
during a baseball game. Anyways, there was no news of a ufo sighting
over Vancouver that night at all. I'd be interested to hear your
15-Jan-2014, Victoria, BC: (9:45 am)
on the front driveway of the BC Legislature, we observed a yellow light
towards the north over the city. The light was traveling south towards
us. As it approached, it appeared to slow its speed. It went over the
inner harbor and over us. It appeared to be a ball of fire about the
size of a small airplane, and there was no sound. The object continued
south over the parliament building and climbed higher in the sky. At
that point, it accelerated its speed as it climbed and very quickly
became a small dot and disappeared. It was about 1000 feet above us.
Unfortunately, we did not get a picture.
15-Jan-2014, Pitt Lake, BC: (10 pm to 12 pm)
returning to a friend's house after a dinner party around 10 pm and I
noticed a large flash off in the distance. Now when I say off in the
distance I mean probably close to 20/30 kms away. I was in Surrey and
could tell that it was coming from behind the mountains near Coquitlam
(as it illuminated the outline of said mountain). It looked as though
it was just a huge flash (think lightning) that lit up everything in
the night sky around it. Now that would be all fine and dandy if it was
just the single flash. But I continued to watch the area and within 30
seconds or so we saw another flash, then another, and another. It
continued like this at varying intervals.. sometimes as quick as 5
seconds other times within two minutes. My friends all went inside the
house as it didn't interest them like it did me (but they did see it.)
I convinced my girlfriend to track the source down with me, so we start
driving. Tracking it in the sky was easy, just watch the general
direction and the entire sky was lighting up. We headed down all the
roads we could until we came to an end at Pitt Lake where we couldn't
take roads any farther as they had the parking area gated off. It was
closer to 11:30 pm now. There were alot of people parked inside so I'm
assuming at least some other people must of seen it. Anyways as we got
closer the sky was still being illuminated but we could see less of the
flash as we were now pretty close to the base of the mountain which it
was behind. The intensity of this was like nothing I have seen besides
lightning and there was no sound so fireworks were not likely. Also
lasting over 2 hours before we finally gave up and headed home,
watching the inside of the car light up with each flash coming from
behind us. I have some pretty crude video of it happening taken from
Surrey so you can see the distance at which I was viewing it from. If
anyone knows about what this might of been it would really put my mind
Some other info. It never moved or changed location, It was always
behind the mountain just north of the parking lot at Pitt Lake. The
flashes also sort of varied from a white lightning style to a
redish/orange fire hue. Intensity varied as well, from just enough to
outline the mountain to the whole sky being lit up in that area. If
this is not the correct site to post this too as it doesn't exactly
pertain to an UFO sighting I will understand. I am really interested to
find a solution.
16-Jan-2014, Roosville, BC: (9:00 pm)
work for the Highways (mainroad east kootenay), while patrolling
southbound last night on Hwy #93 near the U.S.A. Border at Roosville,
"Marty" who was driving says "WTF is THAT" ? I looked up and saw it as
well. It was a very large upside down triangular shaped thing from the
lights sort of defining it's shape.
were a couple of hundred yards (300) away I guess? It was BIG... I
think maybe 60-80-100 feet across the top and tapered down to 30-40-50
at the bottom, but again tough on the EXACT distance? It was very low,
maybe 100 ft off the ground ahead of us, just above the treeline,
stationary, or moving towards us? I couldn't tell by no side to side
movement for 7-8 seconds, then just tilted on it's side and moved
behind an outcrop of trees on a berm out from an escarpment. We
continued down the highway towards it expecting to see it again because
it was only 30-45 seconds to get there.... nada, GONE, nothing there.
and I dunno WTF it was? I mean this wasn't a "twinkle" in the distant
sky here. It was BIG with defined lights. Nor it seems, can the 2 of us
now later, agree on a few things. I remember yellowish lights at bottom
moving up to greenish and red/blue at top. Marty says no they were more
clear, he doesn't think colored, if at all. I was washing trucks
earlier, got grease on my glasses which I cleaned, but maybe I had some
residue on them which made the light "prism" ??
matter, we both saw it. It was big, it was hovering (or moving towards
us), it was not an airplane (no airplane THAT low, or slow, in pitch
black darkness). Helicopter of some kind? Maybe if it had huge
infrastructure to mount light rows? No noise, again THAT low in
complete darkness, and the lights didn't have "beams" per se, more just
"luminescent" if I am spelling it right. And if it was some kind of
tricked up Heli.... where in the heck did it go THAT fast? I mean it
would have had to have risen above 200 ft to go over an escarpment
behind those trees... which we should have see as we travelled towards
it. We almost don't believe what we saw. But we both know we saw it.
got up the nerve to go into the CBSA Border office at the Roosville
crossing around 9:30 pm just after, the field behind the trees where it
disappeared is right across the #93 from them.... to ask if they saw
anything. I guess we sounded like babbling Idiots. They saw nothing,
but weren't looking outside from their lit up building either. They
have no surveillance cameras either... so nothing there either.
am 56 years old, Marty is 37. For my part... being as set in my ways,
and "comfortable" with the way things are in the World, and what I
accept as "real".... pretty disturbing, and I don't wanna discuss it in
future. I'll go with whatever Marty wants to say about this. My name is
18-Jan-2014, Tsawwassen, BC: (9:17 pm)
friend and I were driving in my car, coming home to my townhouse and
her condo from having dinner up the street in Tsawwassen. I turned into
an apartment complex as a short cut to drive my friend home (she lives
in our condo complex attached to the town houses, just down the road
from this intersection) and as we were driving down the side road, in
front of us and up in the sky we saw two amber coloured, floating,
seemingly round objects. They were rising gradually and several seconds
later, faded in and out slightly, and at different rates as they rose.
I got out of the car to take an iphone photo and got one or two shots.
Then a neighbour's car drove past us and I pointed up. After the car
passed us and went into their underground parkade, the two orbs simply
faded out and disappeared. Then about 10 seconds after they
disappeared, two MORE came rising up from the left of the horizon (tree
tops) at a faster rate shooting to the right, upward on a approximately
60 degree angle! They slowed down their acceleration, then hovered
slowly, still slightly accelerating, then eventually also faded away
and disappeared! One was always higher than the other. In one photo, if
you magnify it, you can see a white glowing disc, with some sort of
amber/pink energy coming out of the back of it and just below it at the
back another small object separate from. Small, like a smaller ship,
cloaked in the pink/amber colour! Beautiful!
23-Jan-2014, Burnaby, BC: (7:10 am)
was 7:10 am in the morning, it was slightly foggy out and I had just
turned down Wayburne drive in Burnaby when I noticed 5 lights in a V
formation under the moon. The lower light on the right side was
blinking. I did a double take, because I know there are no buildings or
mountains over there. I drive this route nearly every day and have
never seen any lights there before. At first I thought it was the
stars, but when I looked around I realized it was too bright for stars,
and these lights were as big, if not bigger than the brightest star in
the sky. Then I thought maybe it was planes doing a formation, but none
of them were moving.
in mind I was only able to see them for maybe 10 seconds before I had
to turn behind trees and park my vehicle. Maybe 15 seconds passed while
I parked. I ran back to the road to see if I could figure out what the
lights were, but I couldn’t see them anymore. I thought maybe they were
just blocked by the trees, so I walked down the road, but I still
couldn’t see anything anywhere in the sky. There were no stars out, as
the sun was rising. And there was no way they could have just
disappeared that quickly from sight. Especially being that large and
not moving to begin with.
not sure what those lights were, but I can’t seem to come up with a
logical explanation. If anyone else saw these lights, or has any
information on what they could be, I’d be very interested in knowing
23-Jan-2014, Surrey, BC:
upstairs neighbour and I went to the gas station as a late night walk
one night and on the way back we noticed a super bright, what we
thought was a star. But after looking a little harder to try and
figure out if it was just the space station or not we both saw it with
various colors of flashing lights coming from it. We kept our eyes on
it the entire walk home and once we were home we stood in the back yard
were it was darker and watched this thing for a really long time.
both were amazed as it seemed to get closer and we were asking each
other every time it moved, "did you see that?". Then we started to see
there were three more. They were at the south, north, and east points
of a compass and they were all blinking brightly. We couldn't take our
eyes off them. Then as it got even closer we could see the outline of
something that was incredibly huge. The lights that were changing all
the time were showing the underside of this thing and we couldn't
believe our eyes. It looked like this thing was rolling in every
direction as it was looking for something. The lights would change from
red to blue to white sometimes purple but we saw a lot of green. After
some time it started to move further away, what looked like higher up
and I had to follow it so I took off across the street and into the
park that was pitch black and when I got into the dark I turned around
and my upstairs neighbour had turned around and gone home, but I
continued into the dark. I watched it till it got to high for me to see
anymore. But I could see the other three had moved right along
with it till I could hardly see them too.
were so glad that we were together cause we didn't think anyone would
believe this story. But the two of us really did see what we were
telling people and people were looking up things on the internet to try
and explain it but both of us just kept saying, "nope, not like that"
or "it was way bigger than that!".
the next night we went out again but it was too cold for my neighbour
to stay outside with me so I put on a big coat and sat on the outside
stairs and looked up. It was there again but up really high. I ran in
and grabbed my iPad but it couldn't pick it up, it was too far away in
the dark. I sat outside with iPad in hand and waited for a really long
time to try to catch this thing but after it got really too cold for me
I had to come in. But let me tell you, it sure has me watching the
skies now. While we were walking back from the gas station we even
stopped people on the sidewalk and asked them if they knew what that
"thing" might be and because it was flashing blue and red people were
suggesting it was the police helicopter. But it was just hovering and
there was no noise coming from it. It's something I will never forget.
It was incredible.
Keep your eyes to the skies. You never know what you will see
25-Jan-2014, North Vancouver, BC: (about 9:30 - 9:37 pm)
was leaving my boyfriend's house at approximately 9:30 p.m. on January
25th 2014. His house is located at the top of Fromme mountain in North
Vancouver British Columbia. From his house there is amazing view of the
city of Vancouver, and Burnaby. As I was leaving I noticed a bright
light over the City of Vancouver. It is not uncommon to see planes
coming to and from YVR airport, but I knew this was different. The
night before we were looking at stars, and noticed a very bright one in
the sky. At first I thought that this light might be the same star, but
I quickly realized it was not. Normally, planes that are going into the
airport are moving quite quickly, but this light was not moving at all.
It seemed as though it was flashing every once and awhile. I watched
this light for approximately 5 minutes and it did not move at all. I
know it was not the same star as the previous night, as it was lower in
the sky and much brighter. At 9:35 p.m., I took a picture of this
bright light over the city. Soon after, its flashed one more time and
then disappeared. I am certain it is not a plane as it did not move for
approximately 7 minutes. I know that it was not a star, as it
disappeared while I was looking on at it. My pictures are not extremely
clear, they are quite dark, but they easily show a very bright light
over the city. If you would like, I would be happy to send them to you,
along with a comparison of the skyline without it. I was wondering if
you got any other reports similar to mine. Thank you.
26-Jan-2014, Roberts Creek, BC: (6:00 am)
six am (it was dark) I let my dog out to pee and I saw a bright large
object traveling from north to east. It was traveling very fast, faster
than the jet I also saw with blinking lights, and jet sounds, going
south east to north. The bright object had no noise and it was
closer to me, and lower, than the flight of the plane. The object had
no plane lights, it was just incredibly bright. Perhaps the crew of the
plane saw it. Also the plane would have left Vancouver vga airport. I
live in Roberts Creek, BC, Canada.
29 or 30 or 31-Jan-2014, Halfmoon Bay, BC: (11:00 pm)
live in Halfmoon Bay, BC area just up from Sargeants Bay Provincial
Park. Our house is about 1/2 km from and faces SE to the Malaspina
Straight to Nanaimo. We do not have an ocean view but do have a view of
the horizon through our trees from about 1/6th the way up the horizon
from the ocean through the equatorial to polar north. The Malaspina has
been the location of many strange sightings over the decades and I keep
an eye out for activities over the straight. Most often it is just low
and high level air traffic and sea level marine traffic. You can
sometimes see through the trees the mast lights of passing ships.
However this night around 11PM I was on the back deck considering some
night sky photography when I saw a pulsing orange, yellow and red light
directly over the straight and clear to my line of sight through a
break in the trees. I assumed it was a helicopter or perhaps an SAR
aircraft so I dismissed it in my mind and went back in. I knew it could
not be float plane traffic from Nanaimo as they are VFR. I came out
again in about 5 minutes and to my surprise the light was still there
holding steady. I am a former Air Traffic Controller from the RCAF way,
way back so I understand the mechanics of aircraft movement in the sky
and this light in no way corresponded to that. It had no
characteristics of a flare nor any moving aircraft and it was too high
to be a boat mast light (too bright and wrong colours). I watched it
for another two or three minutes and then it just popped out of
existence. It did not move vertically or laterally. It was there one
moment then not. I'm curious if anyone else saw this especially those
who live on the waterfront with unimpeded sight lines.
Thank-you for the sighting report.
I must say, given your credentials, as a witness you are an investigator's dream!
normal circumstances and given the date, I would first think of a
Chinese Lantern, celebrating the New Year (on the 31st Jan) similar to
However, although the stationary appearance of the object may fit, the colour/illumination change does not quite fit.
Was there any discernable pattern in the colour of the object? What intensity was the light?
What angular degree from the horizon was the object and if you had to estimate at what altitude/distance from you?
I look forward to hearing from you, and again, thanks for contact us.
for the reply. Given the distance to object from my vantage point, the
size perspective and the lack of drift or wobble on any axis, in my
opinion, it's hard to accept it was anything drifting in the air. I
cannot give a size reference as I have no terrain reference to do this.
However the object was about the size of a weather balloon viewed
from about 2-3 km distant. There was a moderate breeze but the object
was absolutely stationary. There was no flicker. Its dominant colour
was red to orange/yellow diffused across the object. From my
perspective it seemed to hover closer inshore to the Sunshine Coast
side of the Straight. This means that the object had to be at least
30-40 m+ in the air given the angular mechanics of my location to
the Straight. Other sightings of lights I have seen that were boat
masts would place them mid channel on the Straight perhaps 5-8kms from
the Sunshine Coast side and those mast lights were very small, red and
green. I would not be able to see them otherwise. I look down slope at
a moderate angle and the focal point of my view is mid-channel. In any
event this object acted in a manner inconsistent with any object I have
seen in the air. Perhaps its mechanics were more a matter of
perspective from my vantage point than actuality.
30-Jan-2014, Vancouver, BC: (7:00 pm)
parents have a friend who has seen many sightings and he called us
today Jan 30 2014 around 7:00 pm that there was something in the sky
that was not a star because of the size and the light it was giving
off. My dad came home from work and said he too saw it and brought out
his binoculars. From what I saw at 12:20 ish it was a bright light that
was shooting out light in a perfect star formation. But brighter than
any other in the sky. When I looked through the binoculars I saw a
structure that was showing light off the side that went red, yellow
then green on the outside. It's been in the sky for hours and hasn't
moved. I can't get any picture to focus on what the human eye can see.
There were also three symmetrical green lights a bit away from it.
Would love to hear any information about this.
4-Feb-2014, Pritchard, BC: (10:38 pm)
or around 10:38 pm, I was outside looking at the night sky when an
object caught my eye. At first I dismissed it as a satellite, but I
soon realised it did not seem to be one. I was looking to the South and
the object was flying from the East to the West, about 1/4 of the way
up off the horizon. The object was brighter than most of the stars in
the sky, but not the brightest. (very bright though). It's speed was
amazing. It crossed the whole sky from East to West in roughly 20-25
do spend quite a lot of time outside, at night, when the sky is clear
looking and learning the constellations; so the night sky is not
unfamiliar to me. If this had been a plane, I would of noticed the
blinking lights that are associated with planes. As well, regarding the
speed at which the object crossed the sky, if it had been a plane the
plane would of had to of been relatively close to my position and I
would of heard the engine noise.
have watched and spotted many satellites over the years, but the
position and brightness of the object did not correspond to any I have
ever seen prior. The path of the object was more of a straight line
than a "curve" that would be associated with a satellite traveling at
the height above the horizon as stated. It was not the ISS, because of
the direction of travel. The ISS travels in the opposite direction.
Thanks for the opportunity to pass this information on. If at all
possible could you reply to me with any other sightings in the area or
time frame. Thank-You.
Thanks for the report.
the speed in question, it is certainly not a celestial object, nor a
meteor. So it would need to be some type of object (plane, satellite or
other). Was there anything that completely removed all possibility that
it was a common satellite? Unfortunately there isn't going to be an
easy way to identify what it could have been.
I'll keep digging and try to track down what was in the night sky in your
area during that time. Try poking your head out again tonight (if it
isn't too cold) and see if you can see it again (give or take some
Thank - you Richard for the response to my e-mail.
for your question regarding it being a satellite... 100% positive.;
unfortunately the answer would have to be no. (with a BUT...) From time
to time I have been witness to very bright satellites that pass over
head; I believe them to be labelled as "Near Earth Orbits". As I
recall during these sightings, the satellites start out dim then as the
continue their pass across the night sky they increase in brightness,
then as their path continues, they again fade. The sightings of this
type of satellite, that I have witnessed usually occur closer to sun
set and or sunrise; when they catch the suns rays. As well, these
satellites do travel quit fast across the sky; as I am to understand
because of their relative low orbit path. The object I witnessed had a
constant intensity to it for it's entire journey. All in all, it may
have been an satellite, as new ones are added constantly.
Be assured, I will be looking again, and not just because of this incident. There is much to see and witness in the night sky.
Thank-you very much for your time. Keep up the Good work that you are doing. It will pay off in a big way someday.
6-Feb-2014, West Vancouver, BC: (5:15 - 5:30 am)
live at one of the highest points in the British Properties, West
Vancouver. My bedroom window faces south with a grand view of Lions
Gate Bridge, Stanley Park, Vancouver city and the lower mainland. I
sleep on my bed facing west. I was asleep on my body's left side,
facing the window.
Between 5:15 and 5:30 am, I had woken up to my cat's claws on my back,
as he was trembling with fright, hiding next to my back under the
blanket. Just half a second after I had woken up, a very bright white
light shone outside through my bedroom window. It lit the whole room so
bright, that the light was coming through my blanket. I was paralyzed
in fear; so was my cat. I kept my eyes closed, but the bright lights
went through my eyelids as if they had been open or made transparent.
The object emitting the light was hovering silently outside my window.
And it was hovering slowly upwards. The light felt intelligent as if
searching or scanning the room. I had this terrible sensation that it
was reading me. I laid still in paralysis. After 60 seconds or so, the
light turned off, and it was gone in a flash. I felt a strange
sensation that the light was emitted from a huge flying object. The
object had vague appearances about it.
As soon as whatever it was went away, the cat and I were suddenly
'released' from our paralysis. The cat took off and hid under my bed,
and I immediately got out of bed and looked outside the window. I had
been awake since then. Couldn't go back to sleep.
for the report. Very interesting that your cat seemed affected by it as
well. Was there any accompanying sound that preceded the light? You
mention the light itself was silent, just wondering if there was
something beforehand that may have awoken you out of your sleep?
Just a few thoughts:
you mention your bedroom faces south, that is directly in-line with YVR
- could it possibly be an airplane's landing lights that you caught in
a holding pattern?
Perhaps a plane circling around to land in Vancouver Harbor (Seaplane)?
Another possible explanation was that of a police helicopter with a searchlight on it.
It would help if we could get a picture from your bedroom window to see exactly what you would see on a 'regular day'
Thanks for the report!
7-Feb-2014, South Surrey, BC: (7:30 pm)
was outside having a smoke when I saw a strange object hovering well
over our pond. At first I thought it was a plane but it was far too
close and it was not moving. It had blue and red lights on each side of
the strange U shaped cylinder with white lights in the middle. It
slowly shifted to the left and got even closer to me. I felt something
very strange so I ran inside of my house. As I looked out the window
from inside it quickly jolted right and went out of my sight. I have
never seen anything like it.
for the report! How large was this object, and how far from you? Was
there any associated sound with the object? Any chance you can draw us
a picture for us (and
include what you think the relative dimensions were) and send it to us?
10-Feb-2014 and 13-Feb2014, Kelowna, BC:
5:45 PM on Feb 10th my wife and I were heading out of the house for
dinner and the moon that night was massive and bright; illuminating the
snow covered ground in white light. My wife looked up and asked me if
that was a plane. Moving ever so slowly towards the moon at an
incredible height was a large "round" object projecting an incredibly
intense pure white light from its underside. We stood in the freezing
cold and watched it move south west across the sky until it stopped and
just hovered. I cannot impress enough how high, bright and large this
object was. I ran and got our binoculars and there it was, a massive
flat rotating disc; colored lights on the underside and brilliant white
lights surrounding the disc. We watched as it hovered, moved from side
to side and in a split second; lit up with bright intense
multicolored lights and disappeared up and west at a very high
rate of speed. On our way to dinner we discussed at length what we had
seen; not too sure how to explain it or whether or not we should
discuss our sightings with others.
This morning; Feb 13th at about 6 AM my wife once again asked me if
what she was looking at was an airplane. I went to our dining room
window and just like last Monday; an extremely large white light was
moving ever so slowly across the sky in the exact same location as we
had seen it before. Judy grabbed our camera, changed to the telephoto
lens while I went for the binoculars. This time our sighting lasted for
a full hour and (we live in a cul-de-sac) one at a time our
neighbors came out, binoculars in hand as perplexed as we were. A
massive structure, surrounded with (alternating) 4 to 8 bright white
lights around its circumference with the underside showing hundreds of
symmetrical smaller white lights in a balanced and equal pattern. The
object went from being a giant white orb to a flat disc; hovering and
moving on what would be considered a fixed pivot point. We shot some
amazing pictures (still in the camera but I will load them into my PC
later tonight). We watched in amazement as a smaller white orb
"appeared" out of nowhere and hovered beside the larger object for
about 20 minutes. It was now getting late for me as I needed to get
ready for work but my wife continued to observe and call out to me the
(now 2) objects activity. Over the course of another 1/2 hour; the
smaller object seemed to disappear either inside or attached itself to
the larger object at which time it slowly started to rise and then with
a more rapid rate of ascent, simply disappeared. The added "mystery" to
this sighting was its apparent desire to be seen and noticed. This
morning the sky was very clear with the exception of a small gathering
of gray semi transparent clouds. The object went out of its way to move
slowly between the spaces of the aforementioned clouds each and every
time it was about to be covered by the clouds. I am still digesting
what we saw but am extremely anxious to get the pictures into my PC and
see more closely what we have captured.
Thank-you for your report.
would certainly love to see any photos you have of the object! How big
was it in contrast to the full moon? In the meantime if you cannot get
a photo to us right away, could you kindly draw what you saw on both
would love to speak with your neighbors as well - if you wouldn't mind
passing on our contact details to them (website or email) that would be
Looking forward to hearing from you! Talk to you soon,
PS - When emailing the
photos, please try to send the original unedited uncompressed files as
directly from the camera - that was we can do some work on the images
themselves, whereas the data would be lost as soon as it was altered in
- I understand if you do not wish to divulge your address to us,
however if you could give us an approximation (for Google maps) as well
as the direction you were facing at the time, we can start our analysis.
13-Feb-2014, Kelowna, BC: (5 am)
was reading the sighting that happened in Kelowna and I too saw that
light. I woke up at 5 and went on the deck for a smoke when I saw the
bright light. It stayed stationary for over an hour then slowly moved
further across the sky. I saw it above east Kelowna. I got my
binoculars out it was oval with red. I took some videos on my IPhone
and they didn't work out, I phoned my sister and she too saw it. I
watched It through my binoculars the whole time. I took still photos
with my camera I need to check them. It was so bright I could see the
stars around it clearly. As the sun came up the light stayed there I
have pictures with no stars in sky and daylight with this light on my
phone, hovering by the few grey clouds in th sky. It was so weird I'm
glad it wasn't just me who saw it. I watched the sky the next night and
it wasn't there. I have never seen a light that bright stay in one
spot. I knew if I didn't take pictures no one woud believe me.
13-Feb-2013, West Kelowna, BC: (5:30 to 7 am)
too saw the exact same description as a previous slighter commented on.
I was on my way to the gym early in the morning and up in the sky I saw
what I assumed was an airplane. After my 1 hr work out the light was in
the same place. I received a text from my sister that moment and she
was asking me if I was seeing what she was. I pulled over and took a
really good look and I swear I saw a large circular disk surrounded by
mini white lights. The little white lights were not as big or bright
as the "orb" that seemed to be just below the massive disk. The
brilliant light seemed to be moving a little around the larger disk.
The disk was still there at 7:00 am. It was definitely closer to earth
thank star and I also noticed the grey clouds around the disk as the
sky was completely clear and I thought it odd. Didn't report it as it
was so huge and no one else seemed to notice it. Then I noticed the
report here, thanks I am not imagining things!
14-Feb-2014, Duncan, BC: (11:28 am)
very small metallic objects. 1 flew in front of the other. The
object in front flew side to side and up one time slowed down almost to
a complete stop and then disappeared within seconds the secound object
disappeared. I only observe them for about 20 or 30 seconds.
Thank you for the report.
A few questions:
When you say small objects - how big were they? Small relative to what?
You also mentioned flew - where were they flying - direction, speed height?
Any sound associated with them?
15-Feb-2014, Victoria, BC: (about 1:45 am)
guys went outside for a smoke after a night of poker. They called us
out and we saw 3 orange lights moving slowly through the ski, faded
into the clouds after about about 2 minutes. One of the guys got some
video on his phone I can get that if needed.
Thank-you for sending us the report.
the lights in any particular formation/pattern? Also which direction
were they travelling and how fast (compare it to an airplane, hot air
balloon etc). Also how big were the lights? I'd very much like to see
They formed a triangle pattern moving west mostly, slower then a plane,
moved slow at first then sped up. Size would be a guess, had nothing to
reference for altitude and distance. Probably a foot or 2 in diameter
lights with the triangle maybe 40 feet from point to point. Was lower
when we went out, went up into the clouds.
will forward a copy of the video once I get it from Alex. He is a
friend of the guy who was hosting the poker party. I don't know him
19-Feb-2014, South Vancouver, BC: (6:30 pm)
a strange bright reddish/purple light while I was driving home after
work tonight. Got home and onto my balcony as quickly as possible to
get a better look. Took some pictures with my iphone and ipad. I also
got a look at it with binoculars and I just don't know how to even
describe it. All I can say is that it was a huge object, with lights
of many colours, but mostly red and sort of purple, blinking and
pulsating. What I saw through my binoculars were lights shooting out
from this object in an upward/outward motion, almost like wings, but
they were definitely lights. This isn't a good description, but I
really don't know how to describe it. Did anyone else see it? It was
huge, well under the clouds, very slow moving (I followed it the whole
time I drove home, once I got to South Vancouver from downtown) and
when I got to my balcony, there was absolutely no sound. Please tell me
someone else saw this. It was amazing! It was moving east to west in
South Vancouver. It was right above my house! Somebody else had to
have seen this thing.
25-Feb-2014, Surrey, BC: (6:55 pm)
saw 2 purple reddish blinking lights parallel to each other going
north/ northwest similar to what was described by the feb. 20/14
sighting. Luckily I had my glasses on, I saw what looked like a force
field that was surrounding the blinking light and it also was going in
an upward motion but was constantly around the light. I thought it was
a satellite or a plane but it was super high and it kinda did a zig zag
and then just disappeared.
27-Feb-2014, Victoria, BC:
I live in Victoria on Vancouver Island and my house has a fair view of
the night sky, from south to north facing west. A few nights now, not
in a row, I have seen what appears to be a star at first glance
however, after closer observation, this star does apperar to have
blinking red and blue or green lights. It stays in the same general
area but moves in rather a sudden and awkward, slight left to right
movements that make u think "is it me. Or is that thing moving?" It is
hovering and has no obvious engine noise. It looks to me that whatever
it is, it's either trying very hard as a ET ufo to blend in as a star
in our night sky, or someone who is operating it as a drone had a very
shakey hand. I cant seem to find what im looking at when searching
drones so I was hoping u could help decipher the difference.
it is relatively stationary in the sky, it is probably a star. The
flashing colors is quite common and is caused by atmospheric
scintillation - which is caused by fluctuations in the density of air
in the atmosphere. The movement is probably just the apparent perceived
motion that sometimes happens when looking at a star or other
stationary object in the night sky.
We get many,
many similar reports and the first time I noticed one in the evening
sky I also wondered if it was maybe a "hovering craft".
28-Feb-2014, Lone Butte, BC: (00:10 am)
looking out our kitchen window which faces south I noticed something
very bright in the sky which at first I thought was a star. I turned
off the light over the dining table to eliminate glare or reflection.
My husband had just gone to bed so I asked him if we had any binoculars
in the house, he said no, followed by why? I said oh nothing I just
wanted to look at something. I went back to the kitchen window and it
was still there. We live in a rural area, without street lamps and at
this time the sky was cloud free. There are tall spruce trees on the
property across the road, about forty feet tall and they are situated
about 150 feet from the kitchen window I was looking through. This
object was about 6 - 8 inches above these trees, but in the distance.
I could tell that it was rotating, as there were both yellowish gold
lights and green lights, and as it spun it was as if the light was
thrown to the side of the object which seemed to form rings similiar to
the rings of Saturn [ which is the only way I can describe it]. It
would throw these rings first with gold to the right, then green to the
left, then the colors would reverse.
object remained in one spot. I do have a small digital camera, but
night pictures don't turn out very well, so I didn't bother getting it.
I watched it for about 7 minutes, then I decided to go out on the porch
and see if I could get a better view. It was still there, so I watched
it as it rotated with the two colors for another 5 minutes. Being that
it is minus 8 C. tonight and I had hurried out without a coat, I came
back inside to continue my watch from the kitchen window. Unfortunately
when I got back to the window, it was gone!
just wondered if anyone else had seen it. The shape? I don't really
know, but I would assume it was circular by the half circle rings of
light that were thrown as it spun.
28-Feb-2014, Vancouver, BC: (11:30 pm)
have a video link that I shot with my iPhone. It was really strange. At
first, before I started filming, there were 6 lights, moving through
the sky in a V formation. Then, one by one, they seemed to move farther
away - and disappeared. I kept filming and more joined. Did anyone else
see this? Here's the link: http://youtu.be/y8nd9g2FGnQ
28-Feb-2014, Vancouver, BC: (about 11:30 pm)
friend and I were walking West along King Edward Avenue, on the North
Side heading back to said friend's house we both saw what looked like 3
orange/red orbs above Queen Elizabeth Park.
it seemed two of the orbs were moving and one was stationary above the
other two. I would estimate the altitude was no more than 500 meters
above Queen Elizabeth Park. As well, I would estimate the position of
these objects to be slightly West and North of the Bloedel Floral
Conservatory in QE Park when viewed from a map above.
first we were intrigued and my Friend suggested that they could be
lights on a construction crane. However, there are no construction
cranes in the park. As well, I did not see any outline of any crane or
other structure around or in between the orbs.
went south along a street to get a closer look at the orbs and we were
startled by a dog in somebody's yard that seemed very aggressive
towards us. Perhaps it was aware of the orbs too, perhaps not. After
walking closer to Nat Bailey Stadium overlooking the northern face of
the park, we got a better look at the orbs.
only two were left, and they were orange/red or amber orbs of light,
with the light being uniformly distributed along the body of the orb. I
did not suspect that they were Chinese lanterns, as the light they
emitted was uniform and unflickering, and one orb was stationary while
the other was moving around it. As well, they made no noise as they
hovered above the park.
viewing the orbs for maybe 6 more minutes, the two orbs gradually
shrunk into pinpoints and then disappeared altogether. Very strange
2-Mar-2014, Mission, BC: (7 pm)
landlord was driving me home tonight and as we were talking a HUGE
flash of amber light appeared over the Fraser River, only a couple
hundred feet up. The entire sky lit up but a very clear orb was the
source. It must have been at least the width of the river. There was no
fore-warning, or any sign of anything after the fact. The weather is
rainy, foggy and generally miserable, but when this flashed it was
bright as day. This is the second ufo I have seen/reported since
December (the first was Dec 11th, scroll up to see). Both were
basically along the Fraser River. This was nothing like the first
sighting I had - many times bigger. If I were to hold my arm out the
object would have been 2x the size of my fist, at a 20-30 degree angle
from the ground. There are no air traffic buoyies over that part of the
river or any warning lights that could have burnt out. There should
have been nothing there at all.
2-Mar-2014, Mission, BC: (7 pm)
was sitting in my livingroom talking with my husband when I saw the
night sky light up like it was daylight. From where my home is up high
in the mountain I saw a HUGE STRIP along the horizon (could have been
anywhere from the Fraser river as far as Abbotsford) but it was so
bright and flashed for only a few seconds and then went back to being
the night sky. My husband had his back to the window and the view was
just over his shoulder or I would have missed it. I was in amazement
and shock trying to describe what I had seen. It wasn't anything small
- it looked like a strip of the entire horizon had lit up. I didn't see
anything hovering or a UFO but I read that someone else had seen
something over the fraser river. It was so crazy to see the black
sky go bright blue for that second. I'm wondering if anyone else saw
anything that night.
8-Mar-2014, Sooke, BC: (00:28 am)
object is in the sky in relatively the same spot on several occasions.
Very large bright multi coloured "star" like object which continuously
moves slowly up and down or side to side. It emits a greenish light
that changes colours quite frequently. I've tried to capture the image
on my phone but wasn't really successful. Have to see it to fully
understand. I've showed my room mate who was too afraid to be outside
after I pointed it out. Not like any star or planet I have ever seen
before. Am located by the 17 mile house in Sooke bc and can see the
object directly in front of me when I am looking towards Sooke
direction in the horizon. Creepy as hell.
18-Mar-2014, Mission, BC: (10:55 pm)
I would like to report a strange orange/amber light in the sky to the
north. The light was very bright and appeared to be about 100 feet
above the roof tops of 7th Avenue in Mission, BC. I saw it from my back
yard on 5th Avenue. The light got brighter and dimmed out until it just
vanished without a trace. At first I thought it was a meteor or
something and then noticed it didn't appear to be moving. I have
reported the same light a few years ago. It was very strange the whole
observation lasted about 2 minutes and it went from being very light to
gone in the time. I heard no noise or anything that would indicate a
plane or helicopter. I would suggest it was not flare as I didn't seem
to drop down in an arc or move at all.
I would like to hear some explanation if you have one.

Your observation sounds like a Chinese lantern. Are you not aware of them?
They are paper lanterns that use a candle to heat the internal air making the lantern rise.
The candle also provides illumination. The lanterns will sometimes flicker before they burn out.
These sorts of sightings are quite numerous and we frequently receive similar sightings from areas all over the lower mainland.
21-Mar-2014, Abbotsford, BC: (8:15 pm)
husband and I were driving home tonight and I noticed some blinking
lights up towards the low hills in East Abbotsford. I thought it was
strange because of the position as it was just to the left of the red
beacon lights for the airplanes. As we continued driving, the object
got closer and I got really excited. I could make out a triangular
shape with a red, green and white light at each tip.
was flying low and was about 4" inches across in
diameter. I knew for sure it was a UFO, when I saw a plane in the
background heading towards the airport travelling at a much faster
speed. It put everything into perspective as to how slowly the object
was travelling and how close it was to the ground. We were home in
under a minute and i jumped out of the car to try to get a picture, but
it was gone. Darn!!
Thank-you for the report!
Can you provide a bit more details for us, so that we can mentally have a picture of the event?
How high off the ground would you say the object was when you saw it? Also how far part were the lights? You mention 4 inches in diameter - I am having difficulty in understanding the meaning of that size. Do you mean the lights themselves were 4" across, or that there were 4" apart (and thus the object was the size of a bagel)?
The colours you describe are the colour requirements for lights on aircraft:
So, the obvious question: What made you think it couldn't be an aircraft given that you were near an international airport, and around the flight path of known aircraft?
I am of course playing the devil's advocate, but this type of information is essential to paint a clear picture.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
22-Mar-2014, Steveston, BC: (10:40 pm)
husband was outside of our townhouse walking our dog. My daughter
summoned me from upstairs and I could hear my husband calling for me to
come quickly. My daughter told me as I was throwing on shoes that they
saw 3 red/orange objects coming down from the sky.
I got on scene these 3 objects had vanished. As my husband was
explaining to me what he saw (3 red/orange round objects hovering in a
triangle over about a 2 minute period) another red orange object
appeared from west to east.
looked like it was staying in one position for about 1 minute then
started to have bright bursts like pulsating pattern. I caught this one
on video on my phone and it was 2mins 37 seconds long before it
had never seen flares before but we called it into the police because
we were concerned that a vessel might be in distress on the Fraser
given our location.
We were patched through to the coast guard I believe (jrcc victoria) whom we spoke with and I also emailed the video along to.
was a very clear night last night, planes overhead passed us and this
object I witnessed was completely different. The operator told us that
flares generally only last 45 seconds to 1 minute. Also suggested that
it could be Japanese lanterns?
was emailed back that the sightings were established not to be of a
marine emergency but no confirmation if any one else had reported this
later took the dog out to Garry Point and saw nothing further. Went on
Google and my husband said that a sighting in 2011 in Colorado that was
photographed beared an uncanny resemblance to the 3 reddish orange
hovering objects> sent chills right up my spine! They also looked
like the one I witnessed!
Stumbled across this site and wanted to post to see if anyone else in Richmond/Ladner area had also seen this last night.
Thank-you very much for the report.
I know it may be very difficult to answer, but how far apart were the objects to one another, and how high up were they and what sort of speed were they moving (snail's pace or jet liner fast)?
At first glance, as the coast guard seems to have ruled out the use of emergency flares (from a real emergency) it may be something as mundane as a group of Chinese lanterns. As they loose lift (due to the candle burning out) they will start of descend and in their final death throe, give bursts of light as the candle flickers and dies.
Now of course, if the speed and altitude were known, then this could rule out this (rather simple) explanation, but given the large number of such sightings we have from the Richmond/Vancouver area it does lean in that direction. Looking forward to hearing back from you!
my husband was on the phone with "jrcc victoria" the operator asked how
many fists from the ground if stacked on top of another. I used my fist
and counted 5 because there was still one left when he was on the phone.
as high as the airplanes that passed overhead but much higher than
surrounding buildings and trees, as well as lamp posts. Bright orange
red distinctive colour not of any boat masts/ ships/ lampposts, etc.
slower than a plane. When it came into view it seemed to stop and hover
in front of us at a distance. We initially thought it must be right
above the Fraser.
We are 2 blocks away from the river.
started to move further East, appeared to have a steady glow with a
slight pulse. Disappeared after 2 mins 40 seconds. 4 in total.
The first 3 were in a triangle and one slightly moved around according to my husband. No noise at all emitting from them.
the time I felt no fear but I did feel like it hovered within our view
almost intentionally. (I feel very weird admitting that but it's the
honest truth). When it appeared to the both of us it was moving at a
steady pace from West to East but then stopped. Restarted at a snail's
pace before it vanished Eastwardly. We were looking at the object South
post on your site from Vancouver that has a link on YouTube looked very
similar to what we saw if that helps. Height about the same.
Yes it's entirely possible that they are lanterns of some kind, but my husband disagrees.
Thanks for your reply.
31-Mar-2014, Kelowna, BC: (1:30 am)
VERY saw a bright amber colored, twinkling, star, March 31, 2014
at 1:30 AM. The colors brightened around the edges, so I figured it may
be an ember from a fire, though I saw no fires, nor did I smell smoke.
We live on a flight path and can tell which direction planes are coming
from or going to. This light appeared to be a very bright star, not the
same altitude as a plane, higher. It did emit a very small red light
every 30 or so seconds. There was no sound, and no other planes in view
to compare it to. The light originally stayed put, as if floating in
the air when I first I saw it. Thought it was the prettiest star I had
ever seen. It passed by slower than a large gliding bird - in no
particular hurry, heading up the lake towards Vernon - it did not
appear to be going towards the Kelowna airport. Just curious
enough to ask if anyone saw this. Thank you.
2-Apr-2014, Richmond, BC: (1:19 am)
into my townhouse complex at 1:19 am I saw a bright white light cross
in from from right to left. I was facing north so that would make the
light moving from east to west in the northern sky. Though lacking
clear perspective, I would estimate it's position as being over the
airport, vancouver or over the northshore mountains though could have
been further away depending upon size.
The light was a solid blue white, probably around 5000 kelvin. It was
very distinct against the black cloudless area of sky. While moving
east to west, it decended at an angle of about 20 to 30 degrees. The
decent was not smooth and appeared to incorporate one or two dips while
changing from oval to flat to oval and possibly flat again. IF it were
saucer shaped, the best explanation would be that it was banked, then
flattened out, then banked again, then possibly flattened again before
it left my line of sight. The changes in bank (shape) appeared to
co-incide with the dips. The size of the object would be about .1 to
.15 inch at arm's length.
time in view would amount to about 1.5 - 2.0 seconds max. My line of
sight was blocked to the east by other townhouses and the latter part
of the decent was also blocked as the object disappeared behind the
roofs of other townhouses in the immediate distance.
not appear to be a meteorite although I can not rule that out. I have
seen several but none like this. It was moving very slow for a
meteorite yet much too fast for a plane. I have been in aviation for
nearing forty years so I know absolutley it was not an airplane.
2-Apr-2014, Kelowna, BC: (2:30 am)
what appear to be stars, shaped in the former of an anniversary ring,
three tiered, with white lights with one, perhaps two red lights in the
middle. The bigger one appears to be flight height, the smaller has
slowly ascended, and getting harder to see. They appear to be over hwy
97 in Kelowna, just before Glenmore Drive, and after Clement. Never saw
shapes like that. They certainly aren't bright enough to notice.
The smaller of the two is nearly out of eyesight.
5-Apr-2014, Roberts Creek, BC: (9:15 pm)
a formation of 6-8 lights, appeared above tree line but below overcast
clouds. Silent, no sound. Drifted to left slightly then we ran in to
tell my husband and they were gone when we ran back 30 seconds later.
We both asked each other if we had seen it, I'm not afraid of going out
in the dark, I walk my dog each night in it, but tonight was
incredible, it WAS something unique!!
9-Apr-2014, Vancouver, BC: (8:45 pm)
live close to Renfrew sky train at 15th & Slocan. Last night, I
decided to walk to the store for a tasty beverage. Upon exiting my back
door, I noticed two bright star-like lights in the eastern sky. They
immediately caught my attention as it was not dark yet and no other
stars were visible, so I thought to myself; 'What the fuck?' (pardon my
french.) I stared at them for a second and could not believe my eyes as
they started moving in a manner I've never seen a plane or helicopter
move. One of them started descending and moving further away, much to
my amazement it faded away and vanished before my eyes...WHAT THE
FUCK?! I called my roommate to come look, he just missed the vanishing
one, but the second one started to slowly ascend, pulsating in
brightness in a seemingly random pattern. It found a position and
remained stationary. We stared at it for about 10 mins, the thing just
pulsating. He went in, I walked slowly to the store staring at the
object the whole time. I stopped and stared at it for about 30 mins, by
this time the stars were out. The object was almost indistinguishable
from the stars, save for the fact that it was slightly brighter and
continued pulsating. I noticed the second one (barely visible) was
floating around the area, almost scanning, I would say... it would
sometimes flash faintly and then fade again.... The whole time I
watched these things I had an intense tingly-cold sensation all
throughout my body....weird!!! That's pretty much it, I watched the
stationary one for over an hour, waiting for it to do something. It
didn't. The thing is you would probably never be able to tell the
difference between it and a star if you didn't know.
Thanks for listening.
11-Apr-2014, Garden Bay, BC: (about 9 pm)
the night of April 11 my wife and I decided to have a little backyard
fire and watch the stars, even though the moon was almost full you can
still see a fair amount. About 9 p.m. I looked up and saw a bright
light travelling from S.W. to N.E. It traversed the horizon in about
30+ sec. It was by far the brightest object in the sky other than the
moon. It flew directly overhead and I paid special attention to any
noise such as a plane would make and it was absolutely quiet. Where we
are it is extremely quiet ( no traffic, nothing ) so to hear a plane or
a motor of some sort would be easy to hear. Not having something of
known size to compare it with, it is hard to say how big it was, but it
did just nicely fly over Mt. Daniel which is beside our house and it is
about 1500 ft. and if I held out my hand at arms length my thumb nail
would just block out the light. Just before it flew over Mt. Daniel we
saw another one flying from south to north on an intersecting course
with the first one. We observed this one for about 3 sec. before it
faded away right before our eyes. There were no clouds present to
obscure it, it just faded away as it was traveling. After they were
gone I went and got a camera and binoculars just in case they came
back. We stayed out for a couple more hours but saw nothing more.
Hope you might have an explanation for this or know of any others seeing this.
12-Apr-2014, Vernon, BC: (about 4:30 pm)
We were in Kal park and a large orange disk shape appeared over the lake.
14-Apr-2014, Sechelt, BC: (about 10 pm)
seen many similar strange sightings over the last two years, viewed
across the water around Sechelt, BC. In all instances, the events
included orange lights, sometimes in formation, travelling over the
Strait of Georgia towards Nanaimo.
This particular sighting on April 14/14 took place between and slightly
behind the Trail Islands as viewed from West Sechelt (at approximately
a distance of 3km off shore), at around 10pm.
There were six lights, travelling together in pairs at different
altitudes, with the highest being approximately 300m off the water, and
the other two pairs just above the water. All were moving together at
the same pace. The foremost pair of lights was white in colour, and one
blinking light. The second pair was also white lights of medium
brightness, while the pair at the highest altitude were orange. While
watching the event occur, one of the top orange lights flared up to an
extremely bright "fireball", and stayed at this incredible brightness
for approximtely 1 minute before dimming down.
Watched these lights as they headed off across the Strait, and then they became dim and/or blinked out and disappeared.
Would love to hear more reports from people in the Sechelt area, as I
am sure others have witnessed such events. I always watch for them
now, as it seems during certain times of the year the lights can be
seen out on the water sometimes up to 2 times per week, ususally about
an hour after dusk through to late evening on clear nights. I have
also seen them originate from behind Davis Bay / Wilson Creek area, as
viewed from West Sechelt beaches. They usually always show up as
orange lights that 'flare up' as they move across the Strait or remain
stationary at altitudes approximately the same as regular float plane
24-Apr-2014, Invermere, BC: (4:30 am)
was outside and the sun wasn't up yet but it's light was beginning to
light up the night sky. The stars were still fully visible. As I looked
up I saw a bright flash and then a smaller flash. I've seen this before
and thought it was an iridium flare satellite. I continued to watch it
as the now smaller light travelled across the sky. All of a sudden it
did a 45 degree turn! I watched as this object then started to dart
across the sky making small deviations in its flight path one of which
was a fairly large circle. By now the sun was coming up and the night
sky was brightening making it more and more difficult to see the
object. Before it became near impossible to view it started doing
tight, perfect circles.
last night - 3:30am - I went outside again. My theory is that now I
know what these objects look like, possibly I may see more. I saw two
more small, fast lights making "not" straight line trajectories around
the night sky.
wondering if anyone else has seen these objects because last night it
seemed there were lots of them? I've found that you have to look at a
piece of sky clear of any other stars or bright objects and look for
tiny specks of light that are moving very quickly. They're hard to see
but once you know what to look for there are lots.
29-Apr-2014, Powell River, BC: (9:40 pm)
bright light, turquoise in colour, in the northwest sky over the
straight adjacent to Powell River. Light hovered, moved from side to
side, up and down in speed that was not indicative of civilian
aircraft. Lasted about 1 min then descended out of view and not seen
Seen by myself and my boyfriend Steve
May 2014, Kelowna, BC:
was walking the neighborhood around the high school area here in
Kelowna I was about to head home when two individuals let me know that
they had seen a ufo in the sky and I could still see it if I went into
the school field. They stated that there were still other people
watching. When I arrived I did not see anything until two minutes later
when five large circular white/yellow lights appeared overhead in the
east. The lights did not move or anything but stayed stationary and
burned a hole in the clouds making a large gap appear. The lights began
to move away from me growing brighter and begining to blink and
pulsate. They then blinked out and disappeared.

A few tears ago I reported what I thought were strange lights, but after a little more investigating, I was satisfied what I saw was simply jets coming into YVR. My point in saying this, is it is easy to be fooled; clouds moving against the dark sky make bright planets appear like they are moving.
Anyhow my curiosity remains. Since then I have seen a lot of stuff I can't explain. One in particular was around the end of may 2014, about 2 am. 2 nights in a row I saw a bright orange light similar to a jet at a distance, but this was closer, guessing 2-3 miles away. A solid light,very bright, no beacons, moving steady from west to east, about 1000-1500 feet in elevation, maybe moving about 150 mph. Rough guessing, as my dad and brother were both pilots, and I flew a lot with them when I was younger. What struck me about these lights is they were stone quiet eerily silent, and they seemed to just float through the sky. I am in the flight path to YVR, and I take note in detail when a plane passes over as to the size, the speed, the noise, the lights, altitude,and there is no mistaking, maybe a china lantern? I somehow doubt it. The frustrating part is all I could see was the light, no structure, although I am sure that there was some. I saw it come towards me from the west, I watched it head east towards Cloverdale, north of 64th, south of Fraser hwy and west of 152 Street. It was high enough to dart in and out of low cloud. I dont take this stuff too lightly and I'm not going to report every thing I see.
That was the 3rd and 4th time I haveseen these things, a single object each time. I know others have seen similar stuff in my neighborhood. That's all for now as this is getting too long.
Thank you for your time.
2-May-2014, Abbotsford, BC: (3:00 am)
live in the lower fraser valley where on clear nights you can see every
star in vivid detail, so I often star gaze in my backyard. I am nessled
right in between the two mountains with the abbottsford airport on one
side and the flight path comes right overhead over the valley. On
may 2 at about 3:00 am (I checked my clock an hour later) I was
standing on my back porch having a smoke, looking toward the ground
when I saw a flicker in my peripheral high up in the sky
(iphone compass says 150deg/SE) It was a 'blinking white light' that
appeared to be a light from a plane. I watched it and noticed it wasn't
blinking in a pattern, it was like blink 2x, pause pause, blink 3x
pause 4x, blink 1x pause 8x... Not like a plane that has a set pattern.
ALSO it was stationary and moving in what seemed to be a shape.. It
blinked the first time, then the second time it appeared to the left,
then the 3rd down, 4th right kind like a small circle or square, not
tremendously noticable but enough to get me excited as to what i was
seeing. I have a very tall tree in my yard that blocks some sky from my
view. The light appeared directly on the left side of the tree. My
smoke went out, I looked downward as I reached for my lighter when
suddenly a 'pure white fireball' appeared from the right side of the
tree (165deg SE) and shot right over the mountain and vanished (SW).
the fire ball was about 1/3 the size of the moon (HUGE)!!! I described
it to my mom as a giant METEOR!!! I'm not sure if the fireball
came from the first object or not, I was looking down for about 6
seconds when the fireball appeared from the same general spot in the
wasnt going to post this but I thought I would look on this site to
see if anyone else saw this and was surprised to see that somebody from
OLIVER had seen something Very similar!!! On the same date but at 9:30
pm, where as my sighting was at 3:00 am!!!!! 2 GIANT METEORS in 1 day?
The sighting in OLIVER said they heard sound which I didnt hear, and my
sighting had 2 anomalies. WIERD RIGHT!?
2-May-2014, Oliver, BC: (9:30 pm)
really don't know what it was... at first I thought it was a meteor
hitting the atmosphere since that's exactly what it looked like - a
streak of light moving incredibly fast through the night sky. I was on
my deck star gazing. I live just north of town, and the night sky is
filled with stars on a clear night, so I enjoy just looking up at the
beautiful view. I have seen "shooting stars" before, and I always get a
thrill when I see them, and I had heard that there was some meteor
activity lately. This one, though, made a sound. The best I can
describe it is like a low vocalization of the letter V (not "veeee" but
"vvvvv") for a few seconds. It seemed to be coming from the object, but
it was not the sound of something motorized. It was not an insect, bat
or bird as it was lit up, and not from reflected light. It was
obviously not something hitting the atmosphere as the sound did not
come after the sighting, but just behind it, indicating it was fairly
close. I would not have deemed it strange except for that sound. It was
moving very rapidly from north to south, and was only visible (and
audible) for approximately 2 or 3 seconds and was gone. To be honest,
it kind of stunned me! I am not adverse to the possibility of
"visitors," but I am pretty skeptical of many "sightings" of said
extra-terrestrial vehicles. I'm just very curious as to what this was.
8-May-2014, Victoria, BC: (10:30 pm)
the month of May 2014 I was standing outside of my apartment in
Victoria, BC waiting for a cab at approximately 10:30 PM. During my
wait on this clear night I was looking up at the various star clusters.
My eyes were drawn to one particular group of stars which were bright
enough to see quite well even though they were surrounding the area of
the sky where the moon was. After staring at this cluster for about a
full minute, one of these ‘Stars’ started to move. This object went
from being stationary to moving vertically at a consistent rate of
speed and a consistent trajectory for about 3 seconds. After which the
object started to weave in a narrow slalom (or snake like) pattern.
This went on for about another 3 seconds. During this time the object
was dimming and re-illuminating with each swerve but at the same time
each re-illumination was getting weaker and weaker until the object
disappeared all together.
have been an aviation enthusiast all my life and my brother was an
airline pilot for 40 years so I have a better than the ‘average Joe’
understanding of flight characteristics. What I witnessed does not fit
the parameters of any aircraft I am familiar with therefore I deem this
sighting to be phenomenal in nature.
10-May-2014, Vancouver, BC: (9:45 pm)
was outside playing volleyball when this big bright light hit the sky
it had two front lights and i thought it was a plane until it hovered
upwards in a vertical motion i swear it was a ufo
12-May-2014, Armstrong, BC: (8 - 9 pm)
white star-like light just south of zenith. I thought it was
Saturn or Jupiter but it seemed too bright because it was visible
shortly after sunset and the sky was still quite blue. We looked at it
at 60x with a good 80mm refractor until some very light cloud cover
obscured it. Later it disappeared completely. It looked oval so we
thought it was Saturn at first but it looked more like a translucent
balloon. It was very close to the ecliptic, probably midway between
Mars and Jupiter. It was stationary. Was it some kind of weather
15-May-2014 Campbell River, BC: (12 pm)
north from deck of house, estimating 20 kms away at an elevation of
7000 feet, possibly over Browns Bay, I observed a bright yellow and
white light for 3 minutes, not moving but pulsating. Then the object
made a very rapid ascent straight up, leaving a cone trail of yellow
light. The end of the tail had yellow sparks which faded out in 4
seconds. Saw no object only light - half the size of a dime. Very
15-May-2014, Terrace, BC: (2:30 pm)
2:30 PM, with mostly clear skies, myself and my co-worker spotted a
stationary white object, which at the angle of observation resembled
the shape of a long house-style propane tank, of about 15-25 m. length
and 3-5 m. in height, estimating a sight distance of about 1 km and a
height of about 300 m. above the Skeena River. The site was about 8 km
west of Terrace, BC. We observed it while driving, but lost sight
through the trees. Once we were in a position to have another look and
take a photo, it was gone (of course...) There were other vehicles
traveling just behind us. I would be surprised if none of them saw it.
I was quick to note: 1) the location was too low and too far west to be
a scheduled Dash-8 plane out of Terrace. 2) there were no wings (fixed
or rotating). 3) There was no tail fin. 4) We observed it for about 15
seconds independently out of two different windows in the vehicle, so
it can't be a reflection in the window.
17-May-2014, Parksville, BC: (5:10 pm)
wife and I seen something unusual this afternoon as we where
sitting in our back yard watching 2 eagles in the sky above our area of
housing . We seen this round white cloud looking object moving rapidly
across the clear blue area of sky. It looked like a round white cloud,
the same color as the patches of white clouds which where scattered
across the sky. I told the wife that it seemed to be a UFO -- as
we had seen UFO's before in the Yukon where we lived before. That round
cloud object was heading for a large white cloud formation, so I
ran into the house to get my 10 x 50 binoculars before the object went
into that cloud formation. When I came back out of the house the
object had already disappeared into that larger white cloud formation.
I then watched the sky for the round object to reappear somewhere
on the other side of the larger white cloud formation. At the speed
that round object was travelling it should have appeared in a short
time, but it did not seem to leave that larger white cloud formation.
I was watching around that cloud formation for that object maybe
between 5 to 10 minutes when a large coal black object appeared out of
my side of the middle of that white cloud formation for a flash of a
second only and then disappeared back into that white cloud formation.
I thought for a second that it might have been one of the 2
eagles we had been watching before, but they where still flying in
circles a long way lower than that cloud formation which was high in
the sky. I was definately a big black object which I
mistook as a large black eagle with it's wings stretched out in a
gliding flight. That round cloud looking object or the coal black
object that came out of the cloud formation for a flash of a secong did
not seem to reappear. BUT, then all of a sudden, maybe 10 minutes later
this big white jet plane came from a Southern direction and turned to
go through that white cloud formation I had been watching and
then continued to fly through the next 2 white cloud formations in a
Northern direction, like it was looking for something. The sky all
around those white cloud formations was blue, clear sky and that white
plane seemed to pick those white cloud formations to fly through.
Looking it up on the internet it appears that the white plane was a US
Air Force E-4B jet plane of high importance [look it up]. The round
cloud like speedin object was a UFO as many people have also seen,
I found out on the internet. I THINK --- that the E-4B
military jet was looking for that round cloud like speeding object [the
UFO] and was chasing it. YOU CAN PHONE ME FOR MORE INFO IF NEEDED.-----
-Very interesting to me!
31-May-2014, Terrace, BC: (12:30 am)
easterly from Highway 16 near the intersection of Hwy 16 and Hwy 37S by
Terrace, BC, myself and my girlfriend both observed an object sporting
3 very bright lights descending into the local golf course vicinity,
the lights passing through trees on the intervening hill indicating
descent on the east side of the hill.
The event took place at 12:30 am (pitch black night).
This makes two sighting in two weeks.... what the heck is going on?
31-May-2014, Abbotsford, BC: (5:00 am)
This sighting was around May 31, 2014 around 5:00am. I live around McCallum Road not far from the 7/11 store.
had slept through most of the day so that night I was having trouble
sleeping. Around 5am I went out back onto my patio to have a cigarette.
In the sky I saw a bright blue light approach from the west. It was
gliding through the sky at a medium-fast speed and would zigzag some of
the time. It being 5am it was completely silent out and considering it
wasn't very high up one would expect a sound if it was a plane, but no
there was not. My phone was upstairs in my bedroom so I knew that if I
were to get it I would miss it. I followed it down my driveway and as
far as I could until it was too far.
It was creepy how silent it was, not to mention the zigzagging maneuvers. This could not have been a plane in my opinion.
31-May-2014, Coquitlam, BC: (about 10:30 pm)
my story. I apologize for the length, but I figured the more detail the
better chance of figuring out what this sighting might be.
was driving home to Port Coquitlam from North Burnaby, the Capitol hill
area on Saturday evening May 31, 2014; it was about 10:15 when I left
Burnaby. I was leaving a friend’s house, like I’d done a gazillion
times before. This time as I went to my car, parked on the street, I
noticed what an exceptionally clear evening it was, absolutely crystal
clear. I don’t remember a night as clear, and it made an impression on
me. Later, when I mentioned the strange clarity of the evening to my
friend, she mentioned that her husband had noticed the same thing and
had commented on the clearness of the evening, as well.
drove East on Hastings Street over Burnaby mountain (SFU) and down to
Broadway, left on Broadway, which turns into Como Lake Road. I took
this route because I thought I’d have a nice view of the city as I
drove down Burnaby mountain. I drove a few blocks along Como Lake and
noticed how light the traffic was. In fact, there was no traffic. I
thought that was odd. No traffic on Saturday night 10:30ish on Como
a few blocks I had the green wave of traffic lights, and then I hit a
red light. I was all alone on Como Lake Road, no other traffic, waiting
at a red light. While I was sitting at the traffic light I happened to
notice a pulsating red light out of the corner of my eye, to my right,
which is toward the south. It was sitting on the tree line, at the top.
work in the area, and I thought it a little odd because I didn’t
remember any radio towers in that area (there is one, but it has a
blinking white light on it). I paid the pulsing red light no more
attention than that.
traffic light changed and off I went. A moment or two later I noticed
that the pulsating red light was moving along the tree line in the same
direction I was travelling. I thought it was a helicopter. I assumed it
was looking for something because it was so low. At some point I
noticed that the pulsating single red light had become three pulsating
red lights and that’s when the object really caught my attention.
some point the object came out from the tree line (from Mundy Park,
approximately) and hovered at the end of Como Lake Road and Mariner
Way. It seemed to be directly over the fire station on Mariner Way. It
had 5ish pulsating red lights in a horizontal position and below the
red lights, in a vertical position, were about 6 green lights. Together
the red lights and green lights made a half cross formation. Red
horizontal and green beneath in a vertical position. At this point I
had driven about halfway down Como Lake Road and didn’t understand what
I was looking at, and I got a little nervous. I even wondered if I
should pull over, but I didn’t. By then there was one other car right
beside me, pacing me. I really wanted to look over at the other car and
see if they were seeing what I was seeing, but I knew if I took my eyes
off that object I might not see it again.
this point I still can’t make out the shape of the object that is
supporting the red and green lights, but it is moving up, slowly
floating up above the fire station. I rolled my window down to hear it,
thinking I might be able to tell what it was by its sound. I heard no
sound. As I drove, somehow the form of the object became discernible. I
couldn’t see it very well because the body of the object was flat black
or dark grey in colour, like a gun metal black. I really don’t know how
I was able to see that and the object was gigantic. When I saw the size
of the object, I freaked out. I started searching in my purse for my
phone. (never stopped driving)
without warning the gigantic object zipped sideways, like a slider
switch on a stereo system. It zipped North toward Coquitlam Center
Mall. When I looked over to where it had zipped, I saw a second object
in the sky, exactly like the first one that had just zipped over there
- Yes, another gigantic object hovering in the area near or over the
mall airspace, with lights. The first object zipped back to its
original position over the fire hall, zip, zip. Once it was back
hovering over the fire hall, the second object, the one over the mall,
made exactly the same maneuver, zip, zip (travelling south and then
back to its position over the airspace over or near Coquitlam center
had convinced myself that I was seeing some kind of movie special
effects. I actually wondered if a movie was being shot in the area. If
that is the case then I’d really like to know. I thought I would see
this in the news and newspaper, it was so spectacular, but I haven’t
heard any reports.
now I had reached the end of Como Lake Road and turned right onto
Mariner Way headed for Chilko Drive. I decided I would try to follow
the object that now appeared to be following the power lines; it stayed
low in amongst the treetops. By now I had found my phone and realized
that the flying object’s trajectory would make it visible from my house
which looks out across Colony Farm. I phoned my husband and said, “Stop
whatever you’re doing and look out the bedroom right now. Tell me what
you see.” He said, “Red and Green lights?” I screamed, “Yes!” He hung
I got home all I said to my husband was, “I’m not going to say
anything. All I want you to do is tell me what your impression of that
object was.” He said, “It was massive.” I asked him how long he
watched it and what it had done. He said that he ran onto the balcony
to watch it, described its trajectory then he told me he’d run back in
to grab his phone to take a picture and when he came back about 30
seconds later it was gone.
3-Jun-2014, Kelowna, BC: (9:00 pm)
was sitting out on my front veranda watching the wind, rain, and
lightning storm when over the mountains to the west slightly to the
north, I noticed a very bright object with a sparkling trail starting
from like a funnel shape, but going vertically, and reflecting in the
sun that was visible under the storm clouds. It sat stationary for a
couple of minutes, then started gradually heading to the northwest. It
would have been over but very close to the top of the mountains just
past Okanagan lake to the west. I went and got binoculars and watched
it, and then thought to get my video camera. As it gradually
moved away, I have over 2 minutes of video, but every time I tried to
zoom in, it went out of focus, but to the naked eye was very sharp and
visible in the sky. It was clearly a roundish shape, and glowed
as bright as the sun. I had two other people from the house come out
and tell me that I was not seeing things, both of them non-believers,
but now they were unsure about that. I will try to view the video on my
smart tv to see if enlarged, it is any clearer. The object was
probably around 20-25 km's away when first viewed, so may have been
quite a large object.
11-Jun-2014, Garden Bay, BC: (11:35 pm)
recently reported a sighting in the sky above Garden Bay B.C. on April
11 of this year. Last night June 11 my wife and I were outside in the
backyard enjoying the fireplace when we saw a light in the sky just
like the one we saw exactly two months ago to the day. This time it was
travelling from due West to East. The object was about one tenth of the
size of the moon and again there was absolutely no noise. As before
there was a full moon, but this time there were some clouds in the sky.
The object was at the same level as the clouds, as sometimes it would
be behind the clouds and then it was in front of them. For comparison,
earlier in the night a helicopter few over, the unmistakable sound and
the nav. lights made it obvious as to what it was. About 20 min. after
the object went out of sight we saw a satellite go by and the
appearance was totally different from the object that we saw earlier.
Garden Bay is across the Straight of Georgia and just south of CFB
Comox and just north Nanoose Bay and the Whiskey Golf Maritime testing
range, perhaps that could explain the strange objects in the sky at
night, I don't know? As before if anyone has an explanation as to what
this could be I would be thank full. In the mean time I will be
watching the skies more than ever.
Summer 2014, Abbotsford, BC:
clear night in the summer, there is a light in the sky above
Abbotsford, BC that shows up after midnight near downtown. It looks
like a very large bright star through the naked eye, but if you look at
it hard, you can tell there are flickers of green and red, as well as
the white light. Through binoculars, you can see a cluster of coloured
lights, and an orb that seems to be zig-zagging slightly, but stays in
the same location. It is not always in the same spot, but it is always
in the same area. It is at a level that is lower than the airplanes
fly. It looks like some of the coloured lights detach and fall away
from the orb, and others seem to be re-attaching to the orb.
You can see it if you are driving east along South Fraser Way, once you
cross Gladwin or Ware, and also from McCallum Road, facing north.
Otherwise, you can locate the tree line that runs east and west,
slightly north of South Fraser Way, between Ware Street and Five
Corners. Look in the general area over the tree line (which is in the
direction of the Transfer Station and the Skydiving Landing). It
usually stays there until daylight.
Binoculars or a telescope would be best.
most likely IS a star. This is a common phenomena - scintillation -
disturbances in the atmosphere cause the colors. I have seen this many
times and the effect is even more dramatic when looking through
22-Jun-2014, Castlegar, BC: (afternoon)
partner was laying on the grass and called me, he directed my attention
overhead. We watched an elongated, spherical, 'silver' object pass over
us, quite high up. Later I went on Youtube and found that someone in
Russia had captured a video of it from an airplane. https://youtu.be/VIwgmg6L4Wo
25-Jun-2014, Squamish, BC: (11 pm)
believe I'm posting this but I know what I saw and I'm wondering if
there was anyone else in the Squamish area that saw the same in the
At around 11pm, June 25/14 N/E Squamish I looked out my kitchen window
to see this object in the sky. I knew immediately it was not a
star/comet or a plane…..as the lights were red/green/white and hovering
in one location. It would stay at one spot then would jut up and down,
then would quickly flutter from side to side. I have a stabilizing set
of binoculars - so it wasn't me shaking or moving around! I watched it
with my binoculars for 20 min till it moved north over the mountain
top. I really wanted to try and find some explanation of what this
object was? Did anyone out there see the same???
29-Jun-2014, Vancouver, BC:
(June 29th 2014) I was sitting in my car looking into the sky and I
noticed 6 small white dots moving in the sky, they were in a kite shape
moving very slowly and then after about 5 minutes slowly moved in a V
shape. They were moving extremely slow and were slightly smaller than
stars. I saw this around 4:00 and the sky was completely clear where I
was. I know they weren't stars because they were too small and they
were moving. I lost sight of them after I watched them for a few
minutes and then they were gone. I would like an explanation of what I
saw if possible, as it is the weirdest thing I have ever seen.
7/8/9-July-2014, Kootenay Lake, BC: (10:30 - 11:30 pm)
events over three nights East shore Kootenay Lake directly across from
Kokanee Glacier. All three nights were warm and dry with either no
clouds or a couple small ones. There was no haze, the air is dry so
clarity is good. There was an approximate half moon and it was bright.
night all three of us were on the lake shore star gazing and looking
for satellites to watch. We started to see satellites pretty
frequently almost right away. Soon my daughter mentioned that she was
seeing bright flashes in the sky to the south. Turning our attention
to the south we all started to see them. This was not lightening,
planes, or any satellite (tumbling or geosynchronous)...no flight path
pattern was evident. The lights seemed too random, but uniformly bright
white and would flash for the same duration. In each case they would
go on and off like a flashbulb. In all we saw approximately twelve
before calling it a night.
The last two were a little more significant. I had seen three in the
same place over about five minutes and the fourth I saw in the same
place. At the same time my wife and daughter saw another one directly
west of us high in the sky. I used the binoculars to look at the same
point in the sky to the south I had been seeing them and asked my wife
and daughter to do the same in case I had to adjust the view. I had
been looking in the spot for about a minute when one of what I thought
was a star (since it was stationary and about as bright as a medium
bright star) suddenly zipped of at immense speed away and out of
view...faster than any satellite I have observed.
We saw one more flash the next night and then three more in quick
succession the night after that. These sightings were more in the west
and directly west of us high in the sky.
I have seen flashes in the night sky on numerous occasions over the
years since I like to watch the sky. I have even seen two before in
rapid succession in the same area of sky before, but nothing like
this. In those other instances I was in the Fraser Valley and even
though it was clear the light pollution and air pollution affects
clarity of viewing.
All this makes me wonder why there are not more reports on this
matter. Has anyone tried a time lapse video to check for anomalies?
Has any Astronomer checked into these?
15-Jul-2014, Botany Valley, BC:
were camping in Botany Valley which is between Lytton and
Lilooet. We were at Pesultko Lake which is very remote at 4000
feet and nestled between a number of mountains. It was morning with no
clouds and very clear. Two adults were sitting at a picnic table in a
clearing, one adult was standing by some trees and one adult by the
camper under an awning.
about 8:00-8:30 the silence was interrupted by the roar of what sounded
like a jet engine coming from the east travelling at very high speed.
We all looked up to see what sounded like a fighter jet at low altitude
(400-700 feet), but what three adults saw was a very small jet black
object at low altitude with pointy triangular wings. The trajectory
looked like it was going to crash into the mountain or across the lake.
The part which was so baffling was that the object and sound
disappeared immediately above us. The most inexplicable part of the
experience is that the sound was so loud and disappeared completely
directly above us all and did not complete the expected trajectory. The
adults involved a nurse, a doctor, a pilot and psychologist. The pilot
works just outside of an airport so is familiar with the sounds and
trajectories and flight patterns of aircraft. He has no ability
to explain the incident.
18-July-2014, Aldergrove, BC: (between 9:30 and 11:00)
was laying on my couch with windows open, lights and tv low. I noticed
bright red neon lights that were horizontal to my living room window
(it faces east). I didn't even sit up halfway and I said "Holy S***",
because I knew that I couldn't understand what I was seeing. The red
neon beams were of different lengths. Four to eighty feet long. They
attached to a great ball of immense light it was fuzzy where they
joined. My 17-year-old came out from the washroom thinking I had
stubbed my toe. When she came down the hall she saw me staring out the
window, still not even sitting upright. She had her iphone in hand and
I remember her saying I gotta take a picture of this. I then got up and
walked to the window to get a better look. The trees across the street
were glowing red and the red neon beams came out from all directions.
It was hovering out my living room window less than 100 feet away and
lower than the telephone pole behind it. The pole has three
transformers on it. There was no noise only a vibration like an "ohm"
could be felt in waves. I was mesmerized and I couldn't take my eyes
off of this light. There seemed to be movement somehow inside the
light. The glow of red dimmed as did the brightness. The red neon beams
that seemed to be 8inches around had a flat solid end and I watched
them retract into the light ball. The light ball was the size of a cube
van. It was a windy night with some cloud cover but no rain. It dimmed
and shrank until it flashed a dim yellow amber than shrunk. I remember
seeing a flash of a silvery metal capusule, then it blinked from the
band around the center, moved 20-30 feet east and disappeared in front
next day it seemed that my memory was showing my mind things that I do
not remember happening, such as not even looking at the object out the
window but knowing it was there. My daughter never got a picture as she
was also too mesmerized. I did canvass neighbors on the following day
but couldn't find anyone other than my daughter and I that witnessed.
a week later I also saw three large orange lights that were in a
triangle formation. They were also east out my window. The lights were
also witnessed by my daughter. They blinked out one at a time without
moving. They were the size of a dime held at arm's length.
was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Has there been any
other sightings around that time? I have also since found out that
Corina Saebels had reported missing time and a sighting. We live in the
same community and I'm just blocks away from where the film footage of
her story was taken. Is this a strange coincidence?
19-Jul-2014, Mount Tzouhalem (near Duncan), BC: (00:15 - 00:25)
on our backs watching the stars I noticed what I initially thought was
a satellite. A bright light flared from it fora second, expanding to
about 5mm in diameter. I was slightly stunned by this but managed
to make out the object move off in a NE direction at what seemed to be
a slow speed but it got smaller and dissapeared making me realise it
must have gone away from Earth at a great speed. It happened so fast my
girlfriend missed it. I'm not sure what man has managed to build and
test up there but it was like something from star wars. I see other
similar sightings have been posted from this area. Anyone know what
that might have been?
August 2014, Helen Mackenzie Lake, Vancouver Island, BC: (11:00 pm)
was roughly 10 tent pads (all full) at the Helen Mackenzie Lake. I
would say roughly 17+ people in total that were there witnessing the
event. We were all up there to watch the Meteor Showers up in the
alpine. It was a great show going on, lots of comets with long tails.
Then, after I would say an hour and a half through the show (11:00
pm-12:00am),we saw what seemed to be a giant white/orange frosted light
bulb floating above the tree tops and over the lake. It was
moving oddly slow and seemed unreal that it was not dropping out of the
sky. It was fairly large, DEAD QUIET, no running lights or strobe
lights and moved in a wobbly, narrow zig zag pattern in a straight
line. This craft, went right over all our heads and continued out of
site. There were many others who witnessed this, and I even still have
contact info from the people on the tent pad next to us. It was by far
the closest and craziest encounter of an unknown object, I have
encountered in my life.
On a side note, from the same area, I have a picture of a CLEAR
daylight photo of a craft moving very fast. My friend who took it said
he did not see it when he took the picture, but noticed it when he
transferred it from his small camera to his computer. If there is
anyway I can load a photo to this report, I will gladly post it.
I KNOW THEY ARE OUT THERE, I can not say otherwise after that incident.
6-Aug-2014, White Rock, BC: (10:45 pm)
boyfriend who lives in surrey about 20km away from me called me telling
me to look outside cause there was a meteor shower. I went outside to
look for meteors, when all of a sudden he said "What is THAT!? Look
straight up!" I looked up and saw what looked like a star, moving in
spirals, shooting very faint miniature balls of light out of it. Then I
saw another one. My boyfriend then got his binoculars and said the
balls of light were actually points on a triangle, and since we could
both see this thing directly above us from that far away from each
other, this thing must have been huge, and quite far up. It was there
for a good half hour at least before it took off.
8-Aug-2014, Maple Ridge, BC: (10:40 pm)
saw a fiery red object with a white centre. It moved slowly from north
to west in the sky. I saw a passenger jet at the same time that looked
lower than the light. It then came to a full stop and then seemed to
move away straight out and fade out. This all took about 1 minute at
about 10:40 pm. This not the first time I have seen something like
this. I had not been drinking and I don't do drugs. I was just out
locking up my car for the night. I was hoping that some one else saw
the some thing. I would like to stay anonymous. You can send me an
email if this event is real. I am a 52 year old family man.
11-Aug-2014, Campbell River, BC: (11:05 pm)
I had a really weird experience last night that I would like to share.
Last night around 21:05 I was getting ready for bed and I decided to
look out my bedroom window. It was almost dusk but still very bright
out. A close to full moon rising which was out of sight to me but
adding to the brightness.
I was looking west. I saw what I first thought was a plane low in the
sky. There is a small airport in that direction so it wasn't out of
place. The object was below the low cloud cover but above the tree in
my neighbor's yard. I could see a red and a green light, so ok, yes,
plane. But the object was not moving at all. Then the outer lights
turned so I was looking at both a brilliant red and green light both on
the same side. There was no tilt or dip like you would expect from a
plane turning. It was a stationary turn. I was looking at what looked
like a short soup can with large bright red, green (and white?) lights.
I was trying to comprehend, the object moved straight down, fast and
smooth. Picture a spider dropping down on it's web. I have never seen
anything airborne move with that precision before. The object was now
about halfway down the neighbor's tree in altitude. It then moved
horizontally both north and south. I would lose sight of it behind the
tree at some points.
was so low in the sky. I could clearly see the features. At this point
I was moving from scared into terrified. I backed away and started to
close all the windows and blinds in my house. This was too close for
comfort. I always imagined if I had a sighting, it would be from afar.
I texted my husband to come home. I peeked out the window and saw the
object was still there. My husband came home quickly, he was just
across the street. I made him look out the window. He saw nothing.
could hardly sleep last night. I have a lot of questions. First, other
people had to of seen that. It was so low and very bright. All my other
questions are just my imagination running wild with fear. Is there
anything that could be an explanation that I'm not thinking of?
16-Aug-2014, Shawnigan Lake, BC: (around 10 pm)
were sitting on our back deck looking west over Shawnigan Lake. The sky
was quite dark, late stage of dusk and there was no moon. Coming from
behind the hill on the other side of the lake were two red orbs - they
came up and over the hill horizontally aligned then one shifted to be
directly beneath the other so that they were perfectly vertically
aligned as they moved closer. There was no sound and they stayed
stationary in this position for a couple of minutes. There were four
bright lights pulsating at the top and the bottom of each and we could
tell they were perfect circles. They were both red and glowing. In
terms of size, obviously really big since they made the hill across the
lake look small. They slowly vanished. Then about 3 minutes later
another appeared, a single one this time, to the south on our side of
the lake and much closer. It came up over the trees and hovered in
place for a couple of minutes before vanishing. They weren't Chinese
lanterns as they were much too large and because the maneuvered in a
very precise way that the wind couldn't do (plus it was a windless
night). They were also able to remain perfectly stationary.
18-Aug-2014, Prince George, BC:
was looking outside at the sky one night smoking...when I looked up
when I saw 2 orbs going at the same speed....and then the 2nd one sped
up and and was at least 5 miles ahead of the 1st one.....I though maybe
a plane, as Prince George does receive flyovers of cargo jets....but
then it shot off..
25-Aug-2014, Campbell River, BC:
was visiting my dad and mom in Campbell River and was sitting out on
their back deck having a smoke when I noticed red and green lights far
off in the distance that I assumed was a plane or helicopter. The
lights were sitting above a known helicopter launch pad out on the spit
across from Quadra Island so I didn't give it a second thought until
about 10 minutes had past and it hadn't moved at all, it was hovering
in the same place.
heart began to race as I knew for sure it was not a regular plane or
helicopter. I called my dad out and told him to bring the binoculars.
We both began watching the red and green lights and taking note of
where the moon was to better gage if it was moving at all. An hour
later it was clear that the moon had moved but the lights did not, not
even an inch. Within that time the lights looked to have burned out
several times for about 10-15 seconds at a time only to return again as
quickly as they disappeared. My dad and I concluded there was no way a
known aircraft to earth could have sustained that position for so long
whether for how it was hovering or the fact it would have needed to
re-fuel. My father has had a couple sightings in his life the first
dating back to the early 60's in the Kootneys and again a few years
later in Campbell River of which he snapped a photo of it that
time. It's a grey saucer-like blurb in the photo but was taken in
full daylight with a sky of pure blue. There is no explanation for that
grey blurb having any earthly business in that clear summer sky.
Both my dad and I believe without a doubt we had just experienced and witnessed an object not part of this earth.
28-Aug-2014, White Rock, BC: (9:20 pm)
from the west about 10 degrees to the left and about 10 degrees above
the horizon I saw a very bright light in the sky with two smaller
objects, one a few degrees to the north and the other a few degrees
down towards the horizon. The three objects merged and then within a
few seconds disappeared. I was not high on booze or drugs and this was
the most strange thing I saw. I do not believe in Ufo's but this
was truly strange.
1-Sep-2014, Delta, BC: (12:25 - 12:28 pm)
was on my deck relaxing when I noticed in the northwest sky at about a
45 degree angle from the horizon a small stationary white object. I
could tell it was stationary as the clouds were slowly moving in one
direction in that area of sky but it remained stationary relative to
nearby tree tops and branches. The object had blue sky behind it. It
was too small for me to discern what it was. I called to my partner and
she started watching it too. Total viewing time at this point was
approximately one minute.
went into the house to fetch my camera and tripod. When I came out
after about one minute my partner said that she had watched it slowly
move to the right (northeast) into an area of cloud making it
impossible to see. We kept watching out for it for about another
minute. Suddenly a white object appeared from the edge of the white
cloud background travelling very fast along a horizontal trajectory. At
this point it was about 3 times larger or 3 times closer if it was the
same object. It crossed a 30 degree horizontal arc of the sky in about
5 seconds disappearing behind the trees! The direction of travel was to
the southwest. At the time I uttered to my partner “what the hell is
that?” and managed to snap two photographs. By then it was only about 30 degrees above the horizon. Unfortunately, the camera’s
autofocus focused on the tree tips making the object slightly blurry.
Additional Witness Information:
I think it may had been one of these that I saw and photographed:
I also attached an image. I know engineering companies use these to
obtain aerial views of projects. Maybe they were taking shots of the
new Highway 17 below our place as the object hovered over it for a
6-Sep-2014, Vancouver, BC: (10:30 PM to 11:45 PM)
noticed what looked like a star at first but noticed alternating,
flickering colours of red and white light. We couldn\'t tell how far
the object was away from us as it hovered in the same spot for the
better part of 30 minutes before slowly moving to our right and out of
view behind a building. We then walked over to the bridge near Crab
Park to resume our viewing and watched again for another 20 minutes as
it slowly seemed to move away from us but was still visible when we
left. It was a clear night so we were able to see other stars for
comparison but I was convinced from the beginning that it was neither a
star, helicopter, plane, or distortion.
7-Sep-2014, Vernon, BC:
bit after eight I notice a large bright white light over a mountain top
by a cell tower. At first I thought it was a planet, but then I
realized that it was flickering. This object contained its own light,
not reflecting it off of the clouds. The object then slowly moved
upward, then turned off, then turned back on and slowly sunk behind the
mountain. It made no sound and didn't have lights like an airplane or
7-Sep-2014, Nanaimo, BC: (8:30 pm and 8:40 pm)
husband and I were sitting on our deck and a bright star like object
very bright in colour and way bigger than a star caught my eye it was
going across very fast heading towards parksville way we must of
watched it for about 45 seconds or so it was not a plane not a shooting
star it made no sound and was faster than any plane I've ever seen we
were very puzzled than about 10 minutes after that the exactly same
object came back towards us from parksville way.like it turned around
than made a crazy maneuver shot up turned a sharp left blinked out a
couple time and completely vanished after that I was pretty shocked
I've seen things in the sky pretty much since I was child but this
scared me to say the least. About Two weeks ago we saw a star like
object big as well blinking out three times and vanishing. Im curious
if anyone else saw this phenomenon at all?? Or has a insight what it
could be? Last night wad also very clear night no clouds either.
Thank-you for the report.
you are describing sounds quite a bit like a military grade jet
performing night time maneuvers - only the problem is, as you
mentioned, no sound. Could have been at a high enough altitude that you
were unable to hear the sound from the craft? From what you are
describing, you only saw a light correct? Did you ever see any
structure behind the light?
option is something called ball lightening - I am not too sure the
conditions nor the observation you made fit, but perhaps...
9-Sep-2014, Vancouver, BC:
1:30am I saw three separate streaks of light that appeared like they
came from the ground towards the sky getting brighter and brighter but
disappeared before completing the arc across the horizon.
I was on the phone as it was happening and the call I was on got
scrambled and made weird noises almost like connecting to the internet
with a dial up modem. Gibberish random noises, then the call dropped
and I lost connection. That's it.
12-Sep-2014, Lumby, BC: (1:00 pm)
was driving to Vernon from Lumby with my sister to do some shopping
right after we had had lunch. It was around 1 in the afternoon, broad
daylight, clear blue skies and suddenly we come around a curve and
there is a perfectly round, glowing, white sphere with two cone like
chem trails coming from the bottom of it. I said to my sister, what is
that in the sky? Is that a jet? WTF is that? She answers with "Pull the
car over!!" We jump out and while I'm looking at it my sister says
"Look, there are two of them!" She's pointing to the mountain and sure
enough just a little higher than the mountain is another one but its
farther away and looks kinda like a tiny sun. We grab our cell phones
and try to take a picture. Of course then it goes a little behind a
tree so then we start jogging down the road to a clearing and take some
photos. We got four pictures but by then it was smaller and we can't
see the same detail as we did in person.. Its very frustrating!!! I
wish I had taken a picture instantly right through the windshield!! but
it was such a weird thing, I have never looked for or even thought of
seeing something like that in my life! It's Hollywood stuff...not going
to the grocery store stuff.

night there was a meteor that was visible to the LowerMainland - and
fits your description and time. It has been on the various media
outlets throughout the day.
Thanks for the keen eye!!
13-Sep-2014, White Rock, BC:
didn't actually see it, but my dad did. He told me that he saw five
orange lights about 1,000 feet in the air. They were shaped like a
stereotypical UFO, and were apparently black or dark grey. They were
moving at the pace an airplane would, but moved like a helicopter. He
said that he could see everyone in their cars looking up at them and
almost crashing, haha. I looked up some keywords of his sighting, and
it actually matches this person's description:
13-Sep-2014, Coquitlam, BC: (9:30 pm)
was working an afternoon shift tonight till 9:00 pm at the cities
animal kennel. I have to walk the dogs starting at 8:00 around a short
loop just in back until all the dogs are walked. Around 8:15 I noticed
a red and green flashing light above the east side of Burke Mountain.
(My work has a clear view of Burke Mountain looking north.) I didn't
see any thing of the light just thought it was an airplane or something.
taking a few dogs out to do their business I noticed the light again
and just kept walking but as I rounded the kennel facing south I
noticed two larger red and green flashing lights and they were in a
parallel line staying in one place. This is when the hair on the back
of my neck started to stand. I really thought I was starting to see
things but after looking at it for a minute I realized it was real.
These lights were much larger and brighter than any stars and I had not
seen those there earlier in the night. So I rounded back and took
another dog and the lights are still there, so I go take another dog
and now I only see the light that was on the left and I keep walking
south and all of a sudden I see the light zig-zag horizontally but
going vertically. Very fast it zig-zagged maybe 7-10 times and then
shot to the right of me (west). This is where I started to "shit
bricks" I really did not know of what to think of it?
Thats why I posted my story here so i could possibly get an answer!
PS, I was not high or drunk since I was working, drugs are illegal, and I'm not old enough to drink.
Hi Thomas, thanks for your report.
to what it could have been? Without seeing it ourselves, there is
always the looming fact we just do not know. It could have been the
lights from a small aircraft doing evening flying and you happened to
be seeing it at various angles (coming towards you, away from you, etc)
and gave the appearance of a more abrupt flight path than it actually
However, I cannot say anything for sure - if you see it again, let us know!
14-Sep-2014, Vancouver, BC: (10 pm)
live in east vacouver - at 10 pm tonight I was walking my dog and
noticed a green and red light in the sky at airplane altitude heading
south. I though "boy that airplane is going fast!". Then it stopped
dead. It stayed still for about five seconds then started moving east
at a slower speed. Then it stopped again, hovered for a moment, and
then moved north at a high speed, but at a lower altitude so that it
disappeared over the mountains. The lights were quite large and bright,
so whatever it was would have had to have had a substantial size.
Another man on the street saw it too, but shrugged it off as being a
drone. This was far too big and high up to be a drone. And it was
15-Sep-2014, Golden, BC: (around 1 am)
just found your site through a few other links on Youtube otherwise I
would have reported this much sooner. I have tried getting information
on this and feel it was something ET rather than a ghost / spirit.
was on a tour with a tour company going through the Rockies in Sep
2014. This was on the night of September 14th which I verified through
checking my tour receipt which was 4 days and nights.
was on a bus tour with all unknown tourists. We were driven to a newly
built set of cabins, truly in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by old
growth forest. No town, no amenities other than the cabins themselves
and a shared dining cabin and kitchen. We arrived in the afternoon. I
was sharing a cabin with two other women. They were in one bed and I
was in another (you pay an upgrade to have one bed to yourself).
knew the area was new as the cabin had the "new wood" look and other
cabins were still being constructed. I can give the name of the tour
company if you need to research exactly where this is.
add that I had had one glass of wine that night and have never, ever
done drugs in my life. We played some team games and had a camp fire
going. Around 11pm we went to bed as we were leaving by 9am or
thereabouts the next morning. I am a light sleeper anyway and sort of
fell asleep before midnight. There was an outside light for each cabin
and the curtains were thin so the light shone through into the room,
not brightly, but some light.
was after midnight, maybe 12.30pm or 1am and I vaguely became aware of
a clicking sound, like a mechanical sound, clicking in a pattern. I
noticed this more and more, being half-asleep and opened my eyes. As I
looked to my right from the bed, I saw a series of swirling mists
inside the room. The best way I can describe it is as if there were 3
objects in water spinning around in circles and around each other and
leaving a water trail or vapour trail. The mist trail was thick grey
but not smokey like an airplane, much denser. But it was grey. At first
I thought it was a trick of the light but I could see it redrawing
itself and the shapes moving and changing. As if 3 (or maybe more)
high speed objects were leaving a trail behind but I could see no
objects, only the trail.
light shone through the curtain and highlighted this thing or things.
They were redrawing the trail over and over as the three of them seemed
to form a circle, and were suspended in the air. The circle formed was
maybe 3 feet in diameter and 3 or 4 feet above the ground. It or they
did not move around the room, just rotated on the spot, but as I say, I
could not see any object creating this "vapour trail". The sound did
not match the things I saw, as there was nothing solid I could see.
have no idea what it was, but my gut reaction is it felt like something
callibrating, measuring, assessing or trying something out. This is of
course just my own association.
wanted to be sure I was not dreaming and watched it for a minute or two
to confirm I could see the vapour trail continue to move and be redrawn
and swirling. I then wanted to be sure it was not some strange shadow
from the ceiling fan and could see too many details in the vapour trail
so it did not at all match a shadow.
It was a fairly quiet sound so the other two girls did not wake up.
got out of bed to the left of my bed. Behind me was the bathroom
light. The thing did not move when I moved. However, the instant I
turned on the bathroom light the thing or things were gone. I
rationalised that I was imagining it all but realised that the sound
had stopped too. I was scared for the rest of the night and barely
slept. I fell asleep maybe at 6am or thereabouts for an hour, that's
have googled "swirling mists with clicking sound" and seen various
results. I've had other experiences but this is the first that feels
be happy to discuss further as this is bothering me somewhat. I come
from a technical background and embrace both known facts and the fact
that there is much we do not know. Definitely not a hoax, happy to
provide drawings, details and more.
15-Sep-2014, Vernon, BC: (8 pm)
is not a bigfoot or ghost sighting - but a UFO! Near Kin Beach in
Vernon, BC. I took my dog for a swim on the Okanagan waters. There was
four of us, just playing fetch with the dog until we took interest in
these 2 parallel running bright orange lights in the sky. We observed
them moving simultaneously in the sky - one on top of the other. And
then one turned into this black circular, opaque object looking thing
and slowly started to descend. We were all wondering… Is this a sky
diver in the night?! Or what the heck! The most bizarre part was when
the orange light now slowly started to descend towards the mountain. It
hovered at the tree line, came down the mountain and back up again,
while moving quite fast. Faster than any human I know!
orange light slowly hovered back up into the sky and then slowly
diminished. Sort of like a flame going out. The other orange light I
talked about initially wasn't far behind. It rose up and sort of did
the same thing. The light just slowly diminished while in the sky.
Weird! I don't know what else it could have been but a UFO. I have a
strong feeling it was. I always wanted to spot one! And look at that!
Thank-you for the report.
A few mundane questions for you:
How high would you say the object was when moving in the sky? At what speed? I am also trying to figure out sizes - you mention a skydiver, so would you think about that size or smaller/bigger? Finally, would you mind drawing us a quick sketch of what you saw? It always helps if we can have a doodle to at least mentally picture the event.
I am not good with the specifics ha although I'll try.
Mmm from the beach, the two orange lights running parallel with each
other were looking a couple inches off the top the mountain ha! So
fairly close... Maybe a 150 feet the top one. And the bottom one
perhaps like 50 feet?
They were moving slowly... then stopped dead, and the top one turned
into a black opaque object of oval shape. How big this was I am not
sure... Say the size of a hot tub lol. It was hard to tell from such a
distance. This is what we were joking that it was a sky diver in the
night. Although it didn't look like that at all - it was a balloon oval
shaped thing above a light so... Whatever that looks like!
the black object came straight down and we could no longer see it once
it hit the tree line. The still light up orange light came straight
down moving quite slow and started moving down the mountain, next to
treeline it seemed fast to me for any object I would know to move
through there. Then came back up after say 30 seconds of browsing and
hovered straight up into sky again. And only say 50-100 feet up the
light slowly diminished.
Then this other orange light around the same area came moving straight
up then at an angle... Fairly slow... And went out just like the other
I don't know if that's a total of two orange lights, or three. But very cool!
Hope this helps. Thanks!

Not sure who I'm talking to nor where to report, but you might want to check this video:
Description included in video caption. UFO Keremeos BC 20 sept 2014
A loud humming and buzzing sound woke me up at night in Keremeos, on
September 20, 2014. A bright shining light pulsating, changing colors,
was flying over the mountain of Columns Park, made of basalt columns.
It moved around a while and then hovered for a long time, apparently
I filmed it for 20 minutes and discovered interesting details when
annalyzing the footage frame by frame and enlarged. It has the general
shape of a pumpkin, the closest thing I can find to describe it. Some
rows of lights can be seen around it. An aura or magnetic shield
surrounding the ship kept pulsating with the changing buzzing sound,
and could be seen at times as a green grid. Holographic projections
appear in the shielding energy field and images, like eyes can be seen
at times, as an identification and communication device for the
After about one hour, the craft started ascending slowly and its lights
got dimmer, until it disappeared. More details can be seen in the
video. Images are worth 1,000 words.
Thanks for your interest and feedback...
the beginning of your video you give examples of video captures of the
full moon and a normal star. Thank you for these. In the "Zoom Out" of
the star you can see it as a small point of light. In the "Zoom In"
image it shows up as a large pixellated object. With the modest
telescope I had in my younger days I quickly realized that a true
"optical" enlargement of a star still shows it as a tiny point of light
- a little brighter, but still a point of light. The large pixellated
star and "ufo" are either out of focus, or "digital" zooms. The
"magnetic shield", "rows of lights" and "holographic projections" are
just magnified atmospheric fluctuations, clouds, ambient lights and
your imagination. You can also see that when zoomed in, the star and
the "ufo" are both six-sided. This is an artifact of the camera
aperture, and not a true indication of the actual shape of the objects.
I have watched the video several times, and see no reason to classify
that object as a true ufo.
you had filmed the object in "Zoom Out" mode, and it had showed unusual
movements in relationship to the background stars, trees, mountain,
etc, it may have had some interest. Unfortunately, nocturnal lights are
usually the weakest of sighting reports at the best of times.
21-Sep-2014, North Vancouver, BC: (9:05 pm)
was looking out my living room window at the North Shore mountains at
9:05 pm. There was an orange light moving from north to south at about
1000 feet. It caught my eye because of the colour and the fact that
there was no blinking nav lights or strobes as would be seen on an
aircraft. The bottom of the light looked sharp, the top looked fuzzy
(see pic) There was no flickering of the light like a japanese lantern,
it was totally stable in intensity. It was moving faster than the
planes and helicopters I usually see, taking no more than 10 seconds to
travel from beside Grouse Mtn to the point where it suddenly stopped
and hovered for about a minute. I grabbed my camera and got one pic
before it rose straight up at an amazing speed. As it ascended it got
smaller and dimmer quickly until I couldn't see it any more (3-4
seconds). As I watched it disappear I could see a disc shape at what
seemed like 10,000 feet moving from east to west. It became visible at
the exact spot the orange light disappeared. It was grey and just
visible against the night sky. The disc seemed to be travelling at the
speed of an airliner at high altitude (500 mph?) It was soon too faint
to make out against the night sky. As far as size, it looked to be
slightly bigger than a jumbo jet when flying at 30,000 ft.
the years I have seen many things in the sky including the ISS being
chased by the shuttle, comet hale-bopp, helicopters with search lights
on and planes of all descriptions. Never have I seen anything that
looked or flew the way the orange light did.
21-Sep-2014, Vancouver, BC: (9:30 am)
morning I was looking out the window from the 21st floor of my friend's
highrise building. I saw 5 or 6 sparkling objects moving from east to
west in tandem. One was ahead and leading the way. They were about
1/10th of the size of an airplane and I know that because 2 or 3
airplanes and/or floatplanes passed by them. As the planes were passing
these objects would hide in the clouds and then come out again when the
planes would pass. I couldn't believe my eyes. I picked up a binocular
and tried to look at them - they appeared as moving objects and were
flashing electric rays similar to a thunder storm - from afar they
looked like sparkling stars. I noticed them with white and orange
flashing lights when they origunally showed up, but the lights then
turned into white only.

silver rod shaped object slowly ascending into the sky over Kamloops,
BC. It was not a plane. Was very shiny silver colour and bright. Was
definitely not an airplane shape. Headed over Kamloops past the highway
towards Barriere, BC. I was on the phone to my husband and said the
weirdest object in the sky is making a slow pass.
2-Oct-2014, Abbotsford, BC: (9:30 pm)
- lots of "low intensity lighted ball" traffic over Fraser Valley. I'm
in Abbotsford and saw the latest last night 930 pm. Flying northeast
to southeast below aircraft about 200 feet. Might want to put some
cameras up, hey ya never know.
Thanks for the tip!
Can you kindly provide a better description of what they look like? Were they following the aircraft, in a similar flightpath?
Richard. They seemed about the size of a truck, but from that distance
tough to gage the diameter. It was ball-shaped and like a dull
lightbulb, almost translucent dull orange. I have had two sightings
this summer and one yesterday. The others were exactly the same except
lit up like a spotlight. All were travelling the NE to SE and vis
versa. Oh ya No sound.
like the Helios or local planes using valley airports. Which I watch
avidly from my southern facing porch. NE of Abbotsford International
not a nut job (although my wife might disagree lol) but have been
familiar with aircraft for most of my life growing up in a military
family. These were not aircraft in the conventional term. Balls of
energy would almost describe it better. Only white and the dull orange
:-) I have also seen several light streaks that seem to be parallel to the border. ?
Hope this helps.
14-Oct-2014, Saanich, BC:
sitting in our hot tub watching for meteorites my girlfriend and I
caught sight of a very dark coloured cylindrical object. It was moving
quickly and silently at an altitude lower than passenger aircraft fly
in this area. This very dark grey object appeared to have 3 evenly
spaced sections which were glowing with a very dim yellowish light. As
we watched. it flew under a small cloud and continued on it's north
south trajectory until it faded from sight in the darkness. I would
estimate it's length to be about the size of a commercial passenger
plane but the body was larger in diameter. It did not have regulation
lights nor did it have any visible appendages such as a tail or wings.

house is about one-third the way up the valley’s south side overlooking
the city of Kamloops. Most summer and fall nights I go out on my
balcony for an hour before I retire. My balcony faces north and Polaris
is directly in front of me about 50° above the horizon. Because of the
city lights I can only see 52 stars from this view. I know every one of
them by heart. I count the number of airplanes, satellites, and meteors
that I see each night. On this particular night I went out and before I
even sat in my chaises lounge I noticed a magnitude -2 to -3 star in
the northwest. I immediately thought it was the ISS going over-head but
after a second or two I realized it wasn’t moving. There should not be
a star of that magnitude at that location and I wondered what it might
be. It was approximately where the star 21 CVn should be, (however, I
can’t see a star that dim from my balcony) so I thought it might have
gone supernova! But that particular star is too small and too close to
have gone supernova (a star that close going supernova would be as
bright as the sun). Still it could be a star far beyond 21 CVn that had
gone supernova so maybe I should report it to the IAU.
While I was mulling over these thoughts the star gave off a faint pulse
of light and less than a second later shot off straight north so fast
my eyes couldn’t follow it. No propulsion system I know of could
accelerate an object so quickly and no inertia cancellation technology
that I am aware of could have saved the craft or its occupants from
instant destruction. I place this object clearly in the “unidentified”
23-Oct-2014, Richmond, BC:
this is Vivian from Richmond. I think i accidentally captured a picture
of UFO on October 23, 2014, at 5:55pm. I wanted to capture a picture of
the eclipse. However, when I looked at the picture 2 hours later , I
saw a white dot that looked like an UFO. I am looking forward to
clarify whether I really captured UFO.
Thank-you for the photo, but what you have caught is known as a ‘Sun Dog’ : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_dog
Not a UFO, but certainly a nice shot!
31-Oct-2014, Williams Lake, BC: (8 pm)
after the fireworks ended about 8 pm my friend and I saw 2 lights that
seemed to move together in one spot for about 2 minutes then gradually
moved farther away until no longer visible. We were looking southeast
from apartment building on Donald Road just above Chevron gas station.
The whole event lasted about 3 minutes.
Thank-you for the report!
made you think it was anything out of the ordinary? For instance, could
it have been 2 airplanes that appeared to be close by, but in reality
were some distance away from one another?
UFO*BC Responds #2:
Given that people were setting off fireworks, it was probably Chinese lanterns.
Just my opinion.
It was not Chinese lanterns and it was not airplanes. I haven't seen lights like this before, it was the movement of them
and speed with which they disappeared. I know how airplanes look in the
sky and how they move. Chinese lanterns would be moving steadily away
not staying in one place.
7-Nov-2014, Surrey, BC (Newton area): (11:30 pm)
Triangle with lights on 2 sides. It was a full moon. There was no
noise. About 1/10th the size of the moon. Moved along the cloudline. It
was above us for about one and a half minutes, then it went into the
clouds and was gone. Because of the shape and that it made no noise, I
am sure this was a UFO.
Witness 2: It
was november 10 and we saw it just down the street from where I live.
It was triangle-shaped and had one line of lights - no sound and moving
really slow. We followed it then it up and disappeared behind some
houses. It was not a plane. We have a sunroof and opened it - there was
no sound at all.
Mid-Nov-2014, Parksville, BC:
I witnessed two strange consecutive phenomena late one evening (actually, early morning I think).
While sitting on my back patio having a cigarette, I noticed a very
bright white light starting to travel across the sky from south to
north. There were a number of strange things about this light:
1) as it traveled across the sky, it maintained a consistent brightness from end to end
2) it became (somewhat) v-shaped as it traveled. i.e. the back end
widened (like a contrail) as the object moved, without losing
brightness or definition.
3) the edges were (and remained) clean and well-defined
4) the front was round and of the same brightness and definition as the rest of the trail
5) continuing the contrail comparison, this thing was about 100 times wider (at least) than your standard jet contrail
I didn't notice it fade away, disappear, whatever; because of the
second phenomena that occurred a few minutes later (5 minutes as a
1) this was a bright, bright yellow light traveling west to east at
treetop level. Some of it was behind the treetops, some of it above.
The distance of this light from where I was sitting might have been
about a city block.
2) again, consistent brightness and clean, well-defined edges
3) there was possibly a rumbling noise associated with this light, but
that might have been street traffic from the main drag a few blocks
4) here's the really weird thing about this light; it didn't
fade.....it dissipated. Think of the light as being composed a zillion
tiny particles. The particles didn't fade away, they randomly
extinguished. Kind of a sparkle effect in reverse.
Anyhow, that's what I saw. I've been thinking about it ever since and still have no idea what is I saw.
21-Nov-2014, Vancouver, BC (Yaletown area): (9:45 pm)
our 17th floor Yaletown apartment, we saw a very bright orange light
emerge from tree height at Aquarius Mews and ascended on a steady
diagonal path, towards the West of False Creek until we lost sight as
it went behind other buildings. It was a rainy and windy night, yet the
light was constantly fiery orange, not flicking like a lantern nor
flashing like a plane. There seemed to be a white light at the centre,
a fuzzy border at the top, and made no apparent sound.
23-Nov-2014, Agassiz, BC:
live in Agassiz, BC. Looking east out our back window my wife and I saw
what we can only consider to be a UFO. Flying low over the foothills of
Mount Cheam, just east of Highway 1...a large oval-shaped object with
what appeared like headlights spaced apart in a ring around the saucer.
It kept slowly moving southward over the Bridal Falls area until it
dropped from our view behind some trees. There are people living in
that vicinty and some businesses such as the Ranchers' Restaurant and
Bridal Falls golf course. It did not look like a plane or helicopter.
Thanks for the report.
interesting sighting! Can you estimate the height of the object along
with its size? Perhaps you could guess speed and direction of travel?
Other than the obvious, what made you think that this couldn't be
something common such as a blimp?
Do you think you could draw us a picture and perhaps email it to us?
29-Nov-2014, Victoria, BC: (8:30 to 9:00 pm)
UFOs - blue and red multi that were aligned and moved in perfect unison
in the sky at a 90 degree angle - bouncing up and down like they were
trying to communicate. Entire neighbourhood watching as they were put
there for 30 minutes. Husband got footage.
it be possible for you to have to the other members of your
neighborhood contact us? Please just give them our email address.
Would love to see the footage - and will await your reply before we ask any further questions.
16-Dec-2014, Nanaimo, BC: (5:53 pm)
5:50pm I saw a triangle-shaped aircraft with two bright white lights
hovering adjacent to the highway. At first I thought it was a small
plane or helicopter until I moved closer to it and then saw it was a
triangle. My car passed almost under the craft. There were hundreds of
other cars near me so other people must have seen this. I was wondering
if anyone else in this area has reported seeing this thing tonight.
24-Dec-2014, Campbell River, BC: (about 6:45 pm)
solid red lights in sky ( I saw 4 before running inside to get husband)
moving slowly to the right and east over the ocean. 3 were in a perfect
triangular formation the 4th had dropped from view by the time I got my
husband outside. Slowly faded from view as they moved east.
24-Dec-2014, Kaslo, BC:
I was wanting to contact you because I caught a picture of 4 possible
UFO's drifting over Kaslo. This photo was taken on my smartphone. I put
a filter on the 2nd one to better show you the lights we saw that night.
So the story is, I was sitting at a stop sign with my friend in his
truck and as I looked out the passenger window I saw a glare of reddish
light. I thought it might have been a street lamp but when I looked for
the source I realized it was in the sky. My friend gave out a nervous
"woah" as we jumped out of the truck. Heads looking up in the sky I
counted 5 UFOs that had a red glow like a lantern yet big and bright.
It was easy to pick out in the clear sky that night. As we observed the
UFOs they seem to move very slowly almost drifting through the sky.
After was seemed like 10 seconds the lights swooped into more of a line
to the right of us over the mountain. We stepped back into the truck
not actually sure what we saw. I decided it was good old Santa visiting
us on Christmas Eve. In all seriousness though has anyone seen lights
like red Chinese lanterns in the sky that are definitely UFO?
