UFO SIGHTING REPORTS FROM 2016

UPDATED - September 24th, 2016


1-Jan-2016, North Vancouver, BC: (between 1:15 and 3:00 am)

My boyfriend and I were still up on New Years Day 2016 somewhere between 1:15 and 3:00AM. He was in the bedroom changing and I went onto my balcony which overlooks the ocean and downtown Vancouver.  High in the sky I saw a bright flashing light that seemed to be a circular shape. At first I thought maybe it was just a plane. Then the object started moving around erratically all over the place. It could not have been a plane or helicopter.  I pulled out my iphone and got a short video of it. If I zoom in on the video, I can see the bright light flashing and moving around erratically very clearly. If I can figure out how to edit the video so that it is zoomed in, I would love to submit it. In the video (without zooming in) you can still see a tiny light moving erratically in the sky, but it looks so small on video compared to what I saw with my naked eye. I recently looked on Youtube and it looks like someone else saw 2 UFO's on January 1, 2016 in Vancouver as well (during daylight). He video recorded it and put it on Youtube. The UFO's on his video look like the one I saw a few hours earlier when it was still dark.

10-Jan-2016, North Vancouver, BC: (6:40 pm)

My husband I were sitting on the balcony and noticed lights above Grouse that didn't seem like stars. My husband hunts so he got out his binoculars and we started watching them. They appeared as red lights but it didn't look like a single red light. They appeared as 3 lights very close together and appears as a single light. First we were seeing 5. Then 2 disappears as if they turned their lights off. Then only 1 was visible. Then they were all gone. Then they started moving in a straight line as if they were coming from behind the mountain. It was a total of 8. Now they are all completely gone. They seemed to be making strange formations. Perfect square and one seemed like an arrow. Sometimes they were all in a straight line. We watched them for 10 min. During that time they were continuously moving. Appearing and disappearing and constantly changing formations.

10-Jan-2016, Gibsons, BC: (7:30 pm)

I was outside having a smoke actually admiring the clear dark sky, facing west. There was a bright light blink, then dark for maybe 10 seconds then another blink. I waited about 30 seconds and then another light blink but it had moved slightly south, another blink and then another 30 seconds and it blinked again just slightly below where I had first seen it. If you could have connected the blinks they formed a triangle. There was no sound. Now I am not sure if there was only one and it was moving or if there were 3 in different spots. The light flash was not normal, nothing I have ever seen before. I wish I could have caught it on a camera!

23-Jan-2016, Nanaimo, BC: (9:00 pm)

My son looked out the window and spotted a bright orange light in the sky, then another one followed and he called me to have a look. My husband and I looked out the window and then went outside to look and they kept coming. We counted six bright orange lights following each other. There was no noise and they appeared to stop in the sky and move slowly and went higher up into the sky and disappeared into the clouds. I ran in to get my camera and my battery was dead, but my son managed to capture a bit of a video. There had to be someone else either out side or driving in a car that spotted these strange lights flying over Nanaimo. We have never seen anything like this before.

23-Jan-2016, Nanaimo, BC: (8:55 - 9:05 pm)

On the evening of January 23 2016 at about 8:55 - 9:05 pm during a break, my partner and I went outside and, after a moment, we noticed some orange/red lights in the sky, 2 at first, then 3, then 4. We noted up to 7 lights all following each other. The lights were solid. They did not blink. They did not produce any noise. They followed in a strange pattern towards us and then curved south and went straight up until we could no longer see them. I noted weather conditions,  compass settings and got a full 3 minutes of video of the lights.

I have map, video and further details if need be. To the previous poster of the same sighting, you are not alone, we did see the same thing over Departure Bay at the same time on the same night.

UFO*BC Responds:

As my partner Richard mentioned in a previous post, the Nanaimo sightings on Jan 23 match the description of "Chinese Lanterns", or "Sky Lanterns" perfectly - a consistent orange colour, drifting slowly, following one another, then going up and disappearing. They each have their own small lift provided by their candle, but otherwise just drift with the breeze.

To make matters even more complicated, there are reports of people flying kites in Nanaimo with lights attached, with the direct intent of confusing people.

31-Jan-2016, White Rock, BC: (8:30 pm)

Good morning, my husband and me, we absolutely saw the same lights in the same pattern yesterday evening around 8:30 pm, as described by the man from Nanaimo. We live along Semiahmoo Bay in White Rock and they were right in front of our house, very close. They were all together 7 or 8 orange lights. We've already had a sighting of 3 at the end of December. Yesterday we just looked out of the window, we opened it and we've heard nothing, no noise.

5-Feb-2016, Burnaby, BC: (9:50 pm)

I saw very intense bright blue crown of lights over the north east mountain looking east over the north shore mountains. I am looking north in Burnaby. The blue light came up 3 times it was crown-shaped and then white light streaks were in the blue. It lasted about 2 or 3 seconds and it was over so it was a very interesting experience for me, maybe someone else saw this also!

8-Feb-2016, Victoria, BC: (8:30 pm)

I was driving towards downtown Victoria from Oak Bay. Was waiting at the traffic light at the Oak Bay Ave, Fort St and Pandora junction. Saw a very bright light in the sky heading east, towards Fairfield. I assumed that it was a plane, but the light was not flashing. I then thought that it must be a helicopter with it's spot light on. When the light passed, it was soon followed by another light, same hue, size and distance in the sky. Then a third followed. When the traffic light went green, I drove down Fort Street, turned left on Belmont and followed the lights. I could see all three in the distance. I ended up taking a wrong turn and lost them around the Government House on Rockland. They couldn't have been helicopter spotlights because the light was solid from all angles. The light was also too bright for an airplane - and again, the light was solid. Airplane lights tend to flash.

I thought possibly the lights could have been the afterburner glow of three military jet aircraft, however the lights were traveling much slower than a typical jet, especially if they had the afterburners on.  Very strange if you ask me....

Mid-Feb-2016, Nanaimo, BC:

Hello I was on your recently added sighting page and I came across the sighting in Victoria (7-Apr-2016, Victoria. BC: (9:18 pm)).  I have seen this ALOT lately in Nanaimo! I noticed them in mid February after I came home from work it got dark and I saw an orange light on the horizon towards the harbour it was slowly hovering north then another one appeared slowly beside it then another then they disappeared in the same fashion. I see these lights often I can distinguish the difference between planes coming in and these weird orange-yellow orb lights. One night really has me weirded out: I was staring at these lights (and this was the first night I saw them.) and I was trying to get photos on my iphone but couldn't capture the orbs in the dark from the distance I was at. But I noticed the orbs were circling the city slowly and looked like they were hovering over the town . No noise. Just hovering. It started around 9:30 and I they went out of my view about 30 mins later. I first thought they may be drones but drones are unsteady in wind and you can hear them. These were noiseless and seemed to almost float across the sky all three of them. I haven't seen them do that since February. But I periodically see them over the horizon doing their strange dance.

22-Feb-2016, Abbotsford, BC:

My wife and I (color-blind) saw an elongated yellow/white object that was being circled by a smaller object in the southern night sky. This went on for several hours. This could not have been an airplane given the stationary position of the larger object and the circling of it by the smaller one. The distance from our observation point in Abbotsford, BC, to these lights was also much higher, I believe, than that of an airplane. In addition, we spotted two more bright objects that were stationary and close to the larger object. Airplanes do not remain in one spot no matter how high they fly. We can not account for these objects and their activities.

Wife saw 4 groups of inexplicable, multi-colored lights that were flashing and moving around the object. They were more or less stationary, with some up & down movement, in a square formation on a plane at an angle. The one closest to us was the lowest one. It was a clear night, but clouds started to move in, & we couldn't see them anymore.

6-Mar-2016, Abbotsford, BC: (8:45 pm)

March 6, 2016 at approximately 8:45pm over Highway 1 at Whatcom Road in Abbotsford...a sighting of a ufo. It looked like a large sheet of red, white and blue lights. Imagine a huge sheet of plywood (about 20 meters by 20 meters) hovering above the traffic, moving very slowly. There was little or no sound from it. About 80 meters high in the air. It then disappeared near Sumas Mountain. This lasted about one minute as we were driving east in the rain.

Have there been any other reports of this kind?

Thanks for your time and consideration.

9-Mar-2016, Vancouver, BC: (6:35 am)

I was driving to yoga yesterday morning along Broadway heading East towards Renfrew. The sun was rising in the distance and as I was driving I noticed an illuminated bright orange spot in cloud and then it illuminated itself out of the cloud and shot straight up. I was driving but I grabbed my phone and hit record and when I looked back it was gone. I am wondering if anybody else reported seeing this?

I am wondering if it could be a UFO that would normally not be visible but because of the sun rising it illuminated it to look like a fireball.

13-Mar-2016, Courtenay, BC: (5:30 am)

My husband and I were sitting on our deck at about 5:30 in the morning. Our deck faces west with a panoramic view of the Comox glacier and Beaufort mountains. The moon was bright enough to let us see the outline of small clouds over the glacier. We noticed a very bright white light that was travelling up in a vertical line from where we first saw it above Comox Lake or the glacier. It continued going up and disappeared through a low cloud. When it was visible above the cloud, it was one bright light and three more bright lights trailing behind. We watched them rise up until we couldn't see them anymore.  This all took place within 2 minutes. The lights in the sky went from about 2000 feet to 10,000 feet and traveling straight up. We have tried to understand what we saw.  Particularly peculiar was the direction of travel.  We have seen jets, helicopters, satellites, and none have ever travelled up, most things move across the night sky, not up.

We would like to know what we saw.

16-Mar-2016, Surrey, BC: (10:35 pm) (near 176 Street and Fraser Hwy)

This evening around 10:35 pm I noticed an airplane flying in the distance over a treeline from my bedroom window. The lights were odd as they flashed between red, white and blue but later switched to a solid very bright white. It moved unlike an airplane or helicopter. It could hover or change direction on a dime. I watched for 2 minutes as it flew a strange pattern, then ran to get my husband to look. He watched and agreed that it likely was a ufo, however it was no big deal to him. What caught me off guard was that it changed direction and flew towards me. It flew directly over my house, quite high. It's not a drone, plane or helicopter. It looked to be more triangular in shape and completely silent as it flew past. It was a seemingly full size aircraft. Hopefully I never see it again. A good set of blackout curtains will make sure. Good luck to anyone else trying to figure it out. I for one am not a fan. Memory wipe please!

16-Mar-2016, Nanaimo, BC:

My husband saw a large bright light in the sky, almost like a spotlight. He told me to come out and I looked at it. By the time I got out the object got smaller, but still really bright. I noticed soon after a red flashing light on it - small, but noticeable. The object moved closer and faster in the sky. It looked like a helicopter or plane-like object but it had lights only on one side of it and when it flew over it moved faster than normal and made no sound. Before we knew it, the object had disappeared. I heard the other day about strange lights in the sky so this isn't the first time this week that strange objects have been seen in Nanaimo. The mystery continues...

17-Mar-2016, Burnaby, BC: (00:10 am) (facing Surrey)

Extremely bright light with the height of about 20 something floors building.

19-Mar-2016, Armstrong, BC: (1:00 am)

Having fire outside. We saw two super bright yellow flashes over top of the mountain and then our stereo which was playing the radio shut off for about 3 seconds and then came back on.

22-Mar-2016, Parksville, BC: (8:30ish pm)

Sitting on rathtrevor beach in parksville, myself and another person observed lights dimming and brightening while hovering over an unknown island location between nanoose and nanaimo...first 1 , then 2, then after a while a third ....they moved side to side and up and down eventually forming a triangle for a couple minutes then dimming out till only 1 remained...the one that remained moved side to side rapidly then lower just above the island eventually moving upward and dimming out...they were there for over an hour  ...sometimes flashing between red and white lights ...the way the lights were they didn't resemble planes or helicopters as they were solid and wide. Though there is/was someone missing since sun in the area on gabriola island but I don't know if you can see that far from parksville. The lights seemed to large to be helicopters over nanaimo's islands.

Additional Witness Information:

Adding to my report... We saw the lights over "Mistaken Island" off from Nanoose....we definitely couldn't see all the way to nanaimo from where we were.

29-Mar-2016, Langford, BC: (10:30 pm)

I took my dogs for a walk up behind my house in a dark field. I happened to look up in a south west direction and I saw what I believe was a low flying cloaked ship. The sighting only happened for about 3 seconds, it came into view on my left and then disappeared. The only thing you could see were what I believed to be the propusion system? They were  about 5-7 purple and faint pink chevrons. They appeared the be seamless and did not independently move. It was absolutley silent and moving in a east to west direction. It was about 30M off the ground and moving about 60-80 kmh.

1-Apr-2016, Surrey, BC: (9:00 pm)

I was looking towards the south when I saw a tear-drop shaped object travelling from the east. The rounded front was a blue colour, the middle third was a maroon colour and the tail was orange! Very strange. After a few seconds it just disappeared.

1-Apr-2016, Salmon Arm, BC: (11:51 pm)

At 11:51pm thereabouts in April 1st we (4 of us) witnessed a bright yellowish light that looked like a flare travelling from the east to the south. It was brighter than anything else in the sky. It looked as though it was a very bright flare but huge and eventually started heading off to the south while trying to get pictures of it unfortunately all of our pictures look like you're bright moon because we couldn't get a Camera aperture that could take an exposure that would register it properly. We have one picture that gives a little bit of the flair to it and also had a trail behind it and it was nothing like any of us who are very avid stargazers for fun have ever seen before. Extremely strange. Over salmon arm bc.

2-Apr-2016, Surrey, BC: (6:10 to 6:30 pm)

6:10pm- Daylight/Clear. I noticed a very bright light coming from the west, towards me (East). The bright light was extremely high in altitude. Probably around 50-60,000 thousand feet in elevation. The object was a small as a star doubled in size and was shimmering. I watched it as it got closer. It kept it's elevation approximately the same as it was in my view. The object's speed seemed at a steady pace but not fast.

6:12pm- I told my partner what I was seeing and he looked up and saw it too. I went into the house and brought out my binoculars. The object now was going left, towards the north. It then hovered. I was able to see the object fairly clearly. I saw a round shaped ring. The ring was a dark silver colour that was spinning counter clockwise very fast. Above the spinning ring looked like numerous bright gold flames of light shooting upwards. I could see spaces in-between each section of the gold lights. The inside top of the ring was a dark thin layer of black. What amazed me was the ring was spinning but the gold bright flame lights were not. Just the ring below it was spinning, while the bright gold lights were monetary in movement.

A passenger airplane then flew underneath it at it's approximately 30-35,000 feet. I then saw the two objects compared to each other and realized how large this UFO actually would be. It would be roughly the size of a stadium or football field.

6:15pm- I called our local news radio and reported it.

6:18pm- I called our local R.C.M.P. and reported it. I was then transferred to another officer to repeat what I was seeing. They seemed to be extremely interested on what was happening.

6:30pm: I videotaped the object with my cell phone and was able to get a few seconds of footage. The UFO was now traveling eastward. It then looked like it went higher and went out of view. A few seconds later, it came back into view and continued eastward for about six seconds then went out of view completely.

6:40pm I received a call from the R.C.M.P. They wanted to come over and talk more on what I had seen. They arrived within minutes and interviewed me on what I had seen. They created a file and I received a file number on the case.

Whatever this was, it was not a weather balloon, satellite or plane. The altitude was too high for any object like that to travel through. Also the pattern was too indifferent to be a regular craft that we know. Also, it was too slow to be any type of comet, specially when viewed through the binoculars, it was not asteroid material.

3-Apr-2016, Coquitlam, BC: (12:39 am)

On Saturday April 2 a few friends and I were at the local pub named Roose... We came outside to have a cigarette, when one of my friends says what is that!!!?!? I look up in the sky and immediately think it's a nice big shooting star because of the speed it was flying at. Then I noticed that it came under the clouds and levelled out and continued flying with a slight right turn and disappeared off in the distance. Both my friend and I looked at each other in shock when we realized we both saw the same thing. It looked like a ball of light or a big orb about the size of a 747, maybe a bit smaller, but it was hard to tell at night, but I'm judging from the distance of the clouds. Did anybody else see this?

3-Apr-2016, Vancouver, BC: (1:30 to 2:00 am)

I am up reading and looked out my window at 1:30 am .....it is now 2:00am and I still see the lights in the same place....hovering over Vancouver BC. The lights are pinkish and a very light whitish blue. They seem to pulsate and expand at times so the circle looks bigger.... At times it seems like the circle is stretched like an elastic band. It seems closer at times and distant at others.

4-Apr-2016, Ladner, BC: (11 pm)

Saw a bright orange orb like a fireball in the sky moving slowly over a field near the entrance to the Massey Tunnel. Stopped the car and watched it with my daughter for a few minutes, then kept our eyes on it the rest of the drive home until the road turned away. Got my husband and came back out to find it again but it had gone. Very curious!!

6-Apr-2016, Surrey, BC: (12:45 am)

We were outside when my boyfriend noticed something in the sky, saying "What is that? It can't be a plane or helicopter." It got closer. It obviously wasn't [a plane or a helicopter]. It was way too small and low. It had a bright orange light.

7-Apr-2016, Victoria, BC: (9:18 pm)

I live a few blocks away from the ocean at Dallas Road in Victoria BC, in a south-facing apartment. Me and my girlfriend were relaxing on my couch tonight, when I noticed an orange light rising into the sky in the distance. The colour alone caught my attention, seeming different from the usual airplane lights, but then we noticed another similar light following below it and then another. After a few seconds of movement, all three came to a stop and hovered for about a minute, resting in a wedge formation, then disappeared one after the other. I got the impression that there were three separate vessels as opposed to a single large craft. I got it on video with my phone, but the quality is pretty bad as my phone's camera is not good in low light conditions. Neither of us had ever seen anything like that before. 

9-Apr-2016, Cloverdale, BC: (9:50 pm)

Saturday evening at approximately 9:50 pm I saw a strange object in the sky traveling west to east. I just moved into the cloverdale area with my family and was taking a break on the front porch and saw a ball of bright white light about the size of a tictac held at a distance. It was much larger and brighter than any of the surrounding stars. It traveled west to east and vanished overhead, like just disappeared. The light didn't blink like a plane, or have a trail like something burning up in the atmosphere, it was solid and very bright. I thought it might have been the quad copter I saw 2 days prior but that had flashing red and green lights. This was nothing like that.

I've seen a lot of things in the night sky, but never something like that.

20-Apr-2016, North Vancouver, BC: (11:30 pm)

I noticed the very bright light about 11:30pm. I recognized it as I saw and reported it earlier this month. I live in North Vancouver. I am looking south. It moved very slowly across the sky...like the speed would be a crawl at times and almost stop. I could tell it was moving because it passed clouds. It also was closer at times and then would rise. It disappeared above the clouds for awhile. It is back again but more distant now and stationary. There is a full moon. It seems to be light pink and pale blue lights when it is closer and more like a bright white light as it moves to a higher position. It is still there now 12:40am - stationary and distant.

29-Apr-2016, Surrey, BC: (10 pm)

I am interested to know if any other people in Surrey saw what I saw last night at approximately 10:00 pm on a southeast to northwest trajectory.

Last night (Friday, April 29th) at about 10:00 pm., I happened to look out our back window and saw 2 bright objects in the sky approaching our house at a slight angle.

I continued to watch from the window trying to understand what I was seeing. They were at the same height and basically side by side with some good but undefineable distance between them. They were very orange in color with some slight hint of red. As they approached I was wondering what they were as they made no sound and looked like 2 independent flames in the sky. They were coming as if 2 slow flying aircraft until they came to a complete stop in the sky above and slightly in front of me. Their height I could not determine, but at this point they appeared the size of nearby street lights, so they were fairly easy to see. However, their appearance was still like burning flames in the sky, and very bright. I was trying to distinguish a form within the flame and went for my binoculars. When I returned there was only one remaining in the sky in the same spot. It looked exactly the same through binoculars and was impossible to see any form within the bright fire appearance. It sat there for a while longer and then faded with a slight fragmenting appearance as the light went dark.

I have had occasion in my 68 years to see occasional ufos at some distance, and in a field outside of Edmonton, Alberta many years ago, but nothing gets your attention like 2 flaming objects stationary in the sky before you, and large enough to see that they cannot be defined.

I would love to hear back on this and particularly from anybody else who saw the same thing. I should add, that strangely, there were no visible aircraft or sounds of aircraft anywhere else in the vicinity at the time. I say this because we seem to be pretty much on a flightpath all day and night, and the sky isn’t usually devoid of aircraft or the sounds of same for very long, and I was watching them for probably about 10 minutes.

30-Apr-2016, North Vancouver, BC: (9:40 pm)

My wife and I stepped out on our back deck only to see multiple silent bright glowing orange spheresmoving from east to west to the south of us. The main cluster moved out of view but a few more kept coming for few more minutes. I took a couple shots on my phone and a  short video. I own a pair of image stabilizer binoculars and they looked like small bright suns with a solid glow.

4-May-2016, Nanaimo, BC: (2 am)

I was on my normal route home, a route that I take almost every week night. I have to cut between two hills along a path to get from one part of town to another. Usually I ride my bike but that day I was dropped off at work by my roommate and he was asleep so I had to walk home.

I was walking up the foothill and as I came to the top I seen these two lights (steady white not blinking) going in a straight line along the horizon. I thought it was a plane at first because they kept the same distance between them. All of the sudden, as I was trying to figure out what they were... they made an abrupt under 90-degree turn at the exact same time and started travelling diagonal to the horizon. They kept on like that until they disappeared behind some clouds or trees in the distance.

It was very strange, there was no noise or eary feeling with it, just the fact they changed their travel path so quickly I knew it wasn't an airplane.

5-May-2016, Prince George, BC: (about 8:30 pm)

First of all I am very far up in one of the tallest buildings in town, and I have very large windows overlooking half the city, keep this in mind.

Iwas laying down on the floor about to play with one of my cats when I glanced up out the window and saw something big traveling through the sky with what seemed to be a very unusual jetstream, it seemed to jump out in places like sparks, or swirling energy blots. The other thing that caught my attention, is the jet stream dissipated almost instantly and the craft could change speed at will, going from incredibly fast to slow enough to turn 60 degrees and veer nearly overhead as it went past.

Imake no claims other than this as to what I saw, I have my ideas on what this was but it could have been many things so I just don't know - military test jet?/spaceship?/ufo? cosmic beings from a higher dimension? maybe. Confused meteor going the opposite direction? unlikely..

7-May-2016, Kelowna, BC: (1:10 am)

Me and my brothers where looking at the stars and right beside Leo a flourescent boomerang-shaped UFO went gliding by slow and clear as day. We where sceptical at first but nothing else could explain what it was.

7-May-2016, Abbotsford, BC: (10:15 pm)

On Saturday night in Abbotsford I took my dog for a quick walk around the block at 10pm. As I was looking up at the stars I noticed a star which is what it looked like, but a lil brighter than usual. I then noticed it moving at a mediocre pace, then it then began moving in a strange wavey pattern, moving backwards, forwards, up and down, eventually it began staying in one spot and then began to do tiny clockwise and counter clockwise circles. I ended up watching this for an hour as it was strangely doing these maneuvers, very strange don't know what it could of been maybe something of ours in space maybe... But the distance it covered and the maneuvers it was doing in that short period of time were very strange. I called my mom and sister outside to check this werid light out and to make sure I wasn't tripping but they watched with me too and got freaked out. Lol, that was one of the weirdest things that I ever seen going on in the night sky.

13-May-2016, Victoria, BC: (10:10 pm)

I was near Thetus Lake tonight when I saw a large star like object flying South West from me, at extremely fast speeds. It was bigger, and brighter then your average star, but with a similar hue to it. It looked to be flying at a height just outside of Earth. It was not as fast as a comet, but much faster then anything I know of that people can fly. I watched it fly towards me from the northeast, and it was heading to the southwest direction. This experience lasted until it flew out of my sight range, about 15-20 seconds. I wish I had my cell phone at the time, but I know it wouldn't do it near any justice compared to actually seeing it. It maintained a solid light, with no blinking. Did anyone else see this??

24-May-2016, Victoria, BC: (11:00 am)

Me and my friend walk to the exterior gym in the park for a little work out suddenly I see something in the sky that was not normal. A long light ( like a neon light) brighter than anything else was glowing and started moving slowly toward east and vanished??? Usually I don\\\'t believe In that stuff but... This thing can not be from here.. It was massive. Like couple kilometer long

29-May-2016, Victoria, BC: (2:20 am)

I was walking up a hill and it was parallel to the ocean and on the other side you can see the mainland. I saw a huge orange flare directly ahead of me on the horizon It was coming from the ground very wide and went very high up in the sky. Kinda like the shape of a flame from a lighter or candlestick. When I first saw it I thought a nuke just hit Seattle. It lasted for about 2-3 minutes then it kinda turned into a big giant orange moon (I am confident it wasn't the moon since it shouldn't have been in that location at that time) and then the clouds started to cover it.

I'm sure it was just a military test from the US. But I would be curious to be able to figure out what it is.

31-May-2016, Vancouver, BC: (around midnight)

I have a video I would love to send to you guys as well, it's about a minute long. There were about 7 or 8 orb like lights, orange/red in color hovering over the ocean over sunset beach. They were moving in strange patterns, going up and down and back and forth. They were incredibly bright and would rise up, very high and then fade out. Some would sink low and fade out. The whole event went on for about 20 minutes with various orb like objects appearing, moving around the sky in strange patterns and then fading out. Can't explain it and would love someone to take a look at the video and let me know what they think. It was truly breathtaking.

Was on porch notice black small single engine size airplane type aircraft but not a airplane had no sound fly from over yvr headed straight line towards surrey called my brother to make sure I wasn't seeing things.

It had no sound and flew at one speed steadily across the sky was oddest thing see so many aircrafts of different types but this was different. definitely not first time seeing odd things in the sky flying around

I was not witness to this personally, but my wife was. Around 11 pm as she was about to retire for the evening on Saturday night, June 11, 2016, my wife observed a large spherical shaped craft with lights around the periphery of the craft, visible through the evening’s thin cloud cover as it hovered over Green Timbers forest in Surrey. She said it appeared to be massive. It moved a little, but unlike any conventional aircraft, then slowly ascended further, and further away until it was no longer visible at all. By the time she alerted me to what had happened it had disappeared altogether. We live on 101A Avenue facing west toward 149th Street and toward Green Timbers Forest. Curious to know if you had any other reports on this occurrence? FYI, my wife does not drink, and does not do any drugs, so I believed her when she told me what she saw.

Good evening,

Thank-you for the report. I know the area quite well, and it is certainly an interesting sighting. Does your wife think it could have been some type of “quad copter” – however unlikely given the time of the day, there have been reports of one flying around with LEDs on it, something like this:

Would it be possible to have your wife draw us what she saw – and perhaps (time permitting) we could come and talk to you both in person?

Regards,
Richard

Witness Replies:

Thanks for the reply. I showed her the video of the quad copter and she said it was nothing like that at all. She said there were no red or green coloured lights, only a slight yellow-ish green hue to them. The ring was about the size of two city buses end to end across the middle so maybe something like 80 feet across and really couldn’t see the top of the craft due to the clouds. She said she wouldn’t even attempt to draw it, because she can’t draw.

I live in North Vancouver and from my balcony I have a view of the north shore mountains particularly around Grouse Mountain. It was cloudy and I was scanning the horizon to see if the weather was going to break. I could see the mountains under the cloud cover. Suddenly I saw two red orbs rise above the apartment building across from me. They appeared to be following a path going up the side of the mountain. They initially were in line one following the other. When they reached the top next to Grouse they changed their position and were flying side by side and started into the clouds. eventually they disappeared. As I was standing there I noticed another wave of these red lights. There were four of them this time and took the same route as the first two. They were in single file and as they approached the top of the mountain they spilt up and headed into the mountain. I had called my son to come and see what was happening. We stood there watching and tried to figure what they were. As they disappeared into the clouds another wave started up the mountain. They were following the same route as those before. The light were all uniform and were flashing intermittently. I was baffled. This was the first time I had ever witnessed this. It has made me a believer. Really don't know how to explain. Unfortunately I was unable to get photos. But my son is my witness as I am his. Wow!

Hello Ron,

Do you think you are seeing Sky or Chinese Lanterns? They come is various shapes, sizes and colours and are often released in groups. Sadly they have become the de facto explanation for many lights in the sky, as they often fly "in formation" and slowly move up, often appearing motionless and then "disappear" (simply burn out). So as for a mundane explanation, on the balance of probability,  I do think this may fit the bill.

Ultimately as we did not see it, then ours is just an "educated" guess - the ultimate take-away from this encounter we will leave up to you. Here is a link:

My buddy who is nervous to be named in this small community took this photo with his cell phone and emailed it to me. I personally did not see this but he swears this is true. I could have him call you I think if you want to speak to him. He noticed this only after taking pix of the deer which is seen in the foreground. I would NEVER hoax anyone. We are professionally employed and we think this is really unusual. Photo is attached. It was taken on a cell phone so the resolution is not great.

UFO*BC Responds:

Thanks for the photo!

After looking at it, as you mentioned the resolution is very poor. So we can only go on the visual cues to determine what it may be we are looking at in the photo. Given that he didn't see it himself at the time (a good indication that it wasn't just hanging there) I would have to wager that we are seeing a bird heading across the frame and mid-flap. It could be a bug, but the level of blur and lighting suggests something 50 feet from the camera (give or take). So although I cannot say for sure, I would have to guess bird. But great photo of a doe!

21-Jun-2016, Courtenay, BC: (3:05 to 3:50 pm)

I was working in the back yard, a semi-rural setting, and my wife and her friend were present.  I sat down on a chair in the shade and was talking with Alene about birds and my birding skills, when a Turkey Vulture came into view overhead, and was soaring on a thermal, doing a straight shot past us, and over the house.  We were both looking at this bird, when we both saw a glint in the clear blue sky, very distant. I commented that it looked like a star, perhaps I said a day viewing of the ISS?  I asked her to keep an eye on it, as it was approaching us, from the NNE, while I went to retrieve the binoculars. I came out and found the shining light, and with optical aid, saw a pulsing, more intense, less intense light (white to orangy, sodium vapour-like light) emanating from what?  The path seemed to slow for this anomaly.  My wife went in to get the 20X birding scope with tripod, and I set this up, as they took turns with the binoculars.

When I finally got the object in view, I couldn't believe my eyes. It was definitely emitting light, there were 2 lights, sometimes 3. The object was silverfish, platelike (no discernable wing-tips, rough edges), oval and appeared to be flipping continuously. (sometimes the 2 lights were horizontal, then immediately turning to vertical, then back). We took turns with the scope.  None of us could explain what we were seeing.

The first of 2 Air Canada jets went by, almost due west  My best guess at the altitude of the passing was 20-25 thousand feet, as I could see the fuselage colour of Air Canada plane (blueish-gray). Using this as a reference, I stared as the lines of travel intersected, and could see that the object was much further distant (30-40 thousand feet).

Object now slowed and changed direction, heading NNW, about 80 degrees of travel directional change. It seemed to linger a spell. We were describing location with referencing the tree top from next door. My wife went to call the air tower at our local air force base, and was told, they had nothing in the air at this time. Second Air Canada flight now passing same height as previous, approximately same direction. Did either of these flights see this thing on their radars?  Was there any reports by them or their passengers, being much closer?

We watched this object retreat to the NNW, for the next 10-15 minutes, the lights still doing the flipping thing, now only visible in the scope.  And then it was gone. A full 45 minute of unexplainable, unobstructed, star-like light, from an oval shape, multi-directional travel, in a clear blue sky, by 3 adults on a sunny day in June. Wow!

There's 4 lights blinking over the straight off Georgia right now been there for about an hour cameras not good enough to take a pic.

1-July-2016, North Vancouver, BC: (11:00 pm)

I was watching the Canada Day fireworks last night with my boyfriend from a friend's place in North Vancouver, At the end of the fireworks, at about 11:00 pm) there was a lot of smoke in the sky and two very bright red orbs, the colour of the red fireworks, suddenly appeared just right of all the smoke in the sky. They were very close together but it was clear there were 2 red lights, not one, yet they both moved in unison. They first appeared on the right side of the smoke in the sky then shot out in a horizontal line away from the smoke then back in towards the smoke in a very direct and quick fashion then suddenly dropped down towards the ocean in more of a curved fashion than a straight line, but on about a 45 degree angle to the right. Then it disappeared. My boyfriend and I both noticed it and have definitely never seen anything like it before. It was clearly not part of the fireworks and it was definitely not an aircraft.

I wonder if anyone else saw this? Was it a drone? Or something else? The red lights were relatively large in size compared to the firworks we had just seen. So I can't imagine it was a Chinese lantern or someone playing around with laser pointers. Thanks!

2-July-2016, Vancouver, BC: (2 pm)

I was on the Locarno Beach yesterday around 2 pm, enjoying the sun and browsing the sky to find flying birds. I saw an airplane passing just over my location, heading west. It seemed whitish at that altitude. Right after the plane I noticed a small, round and dark object flying at the same speed to west but probably in a higher altitude. I followed it for 7-8 seconds until clouds concealed my sight. I am mildly myopic and wear prescribed and ultimately dark sunglasses but my vision is 20/20 when armed. I enjoyed the whole afternoon watching eagles, seagulls, ravens and even small swallows flying very high in the sky.

2-July-2016, Surrey, BC: (11:30 pm)

I was out on the back deck at our farm (48th avenue and 152 street) and I thought I could see some strange lights as if they were in a row but spaced apart in the shape of a crescent shape! I called my boyfriend to come see and he freaked out, there was about 5 lights that we could see and I went to get my phone and as soon as I went to take a picture the lights went out, we stayed outside and right after I put my phone down is was like they were turned on by a lights twitch it was like Boom! Lights back on but this time there was 7 not 5! So we are just staring off in to these lights! Can't believe what we are seeing. I'm calling my mom to go look outside and she couldn't see anything! The lights stayed in the same area never a different area some times they went side to side or up and down but never left that area, then I came in and my boyfriend screamed for me to come see and the lights were gone but there was a bright green light beam across the sky! Then there was 2 of them! Then they vanished! Then they would come back but there would be 4 and they started strobing!!! Nothing I have ever seen before!

3-July-2016, Surrey, BC: (2:30 am)

This mail is just a curiosity to know about a light that we saw yesterday early morning at 2:30 am. Yesterday while travelling through Fraser highway in BC near 96 avenue, we saw a blurred image of blue lights. At first it was not clear; later this began to increase and it formed a semi circle and later this light changed to fluroscent green and then to light red still in the shape of a half-circle.

We have taken some photos in our mobile, as we were travelling in the car we were not able to stop the car immediately to take the perfect picture, hence the fotos are not that clear. Hereby with this mail I'm attaching you those photos. Could you please check and let us know what these lights are?

UFO*BC Responds:

If you were travelling northwest on Fraser Hwy, near 96th Avenue, you would be facing directly towards Holland Park, which was hosting a concert on July 2nd and 3rd. Possibly they had coloured spot lights operating? We are trying to get confirmation of that.

4-July-2016, Vancouver, BC: (1:30 am)

I wanted to get my sighting report on your website. On monday July 4 at around 1:30 am I saw what appeared to be a blue crown shape in the skies above Vancouver BC. I live in Surrey, and it appeared to be above North Vancouver somewhere. I know someone else must have seen this as it was huge and you just couldn't miss it. I didn't take any videos,  but I saw a video on YouTube that someone by the name of Phil Can managed to capture. She lives in Guildford.I know this is what I saw but I haven't found any other reports on it, have you recieved anything on this? Check the video out at

UFO*BC Responds:

On our website we have posted a couple of photographs taken on July 3rd. We believe the lights shown may have something to do with a concert taking place in Holland Park in Surrey. Does this photo look like what you saw?

Witness Responds:

Yes that's exactly what I saw. I thought it could be spotlights from a concert but I wasn't sure.

4-July-2016, Nanaimo, BC: (3:30 am)

Outside my house looking up having a crafty smoke, when I saw a light, like a star....I watched it for about a 1 min 30 sec. It started as a star then moved and darted about towards Nanaimo town, high up...was weird as nothing I know moves that quick...I want to know if anyone else saw it!! I recorded a voicemail on my phone shortly after to record the time...and went up and told my husband who was in bed....which i think feels I'm not seeing things right......but I saw it! I hate conspiracy nuts and and was looking up and bam....little light.....darting around. I stood there thinking just clear my eyes for 30 sec....... I could not believe it....but I saw it.....man do we have cool engines out there? Maybe so!

9-July-2016, Mission, BC: (11:30 pm)

I walked out to deck for a smoke, I light cig, heard plane, looked up, saw plane, heading east...and out of the corner of my eye, towards west, was a bright pulsive flash, I seen it all, and it was like welding flashes, burn out before hits floor...like this, hung for about a sec...then no light...I was looking for it, thinking a plane traveling would light up again in 5 sec....didnt....about 30 sec later, it did it again in a different spot, lost it in a sec, as light faded to nothing....and again and again...4 times, 4 different spots, in 4 min....I was thinking, and absorbing it, and it was overcast, I can see stars in between clouds, and it was above the clouds, which was at low this day...so im thinking maybe object was 2-3000 feet, maybe....but by the time I saw the 3rd and 4th flash....I didnt hear anything, as the plane noise was gone by then....so no sound, jumped arround...and after the 4th sighting, the clouds where closed in more and I totaly lost it for good...so I went back in the house and right away told a girl I was talking to, and I reported it to Mufon just after midnight.....so ya, this was a single craft, hovering on spot, flashed, moved to different spot, flashed....or it could of been 1 big craft, with different lights flashing different spots...but majority of craft was hidden behind clouds...so i am confused and shooken still...Mufon won't come talk to me, and i need some one to talk to...but no doctors....if u can somehow contact me, come over and look at situation I was in, I would like it a lot...I had to confirm with texts, that I wasnt abducted this time...because I was gone for 5 min....this wasnt my first sighting, and it wont be my last...thank you.

24-July-2016, Nanaimo, BC:

Saw five bright objects hovering around the Nanaimo Hospital Area. This went on for probably over an hour. Two were pulsating and the rest were steady. I took a bunch of vidoeos with my blackberry phone. I uploaded the footage to my google account.

27-Jul-2016, Cowichan Lake, BC: (between 12:00 am and 1:30 am)

My friend Dawson, my aunt barb and I were watching the meteor shower last night, a very very bright orange then green star like object fell through the sky. A couple minutes later we noticed what looked like a star but brighter flew out from behind the trees. It was flying in a very strange manner doing a couple circles around and going up and down repeatedly for around 30 minutes.  All of the sudden, another star like object came out of no where and flew up very very quickly right up next to the other one. With no flashing lights, no noises and the odd flying manner we thought there was no way it could have been a plane or satellite. After a few seconds of them doing circles next to each other one of the objects hovered off across the sky slowly while the other one disappeared into no where. We would love to hear your professional opinion.

29-Jul-2016, Rutland, BC: (about 11:00 pm)

Single lighted object moving very quickly and then darting in all sorts of different directions in a split second.. and then disappeared. For sure this was not a plane or a star. We were looking from Rutland towards the mountains on the west Kelowna side of the lake.

1-Aug-2016, Vancouver, BC: (about midnight)

I was walking my girlfriend's 15 year old husky late at night in a Vancouver neighborhood that I've visited numerous times, but I wouldn't say I'm overly familiar with the area. It was about midnight on the evening of August 1st, 2016. The dog and I had been walking around the immediate neighborhood for about half an hour, and the route I was currently taking (west along 48th) brought us to the entrance of a trail at the corner of Alma and 48th that both the dog and I have walked through several times previously. But since it was midnight, and the trail was pitch black, I started to go north on Alma instead. The dog didn't care that it was pitch black and wanted to go onto the trail. The black arrow on the attached Google Street View image indicates where she was located while at the end of her retractable leash. We were having a standoff. The dog, being a typical husky, was being stubborn. We were in no hurry, so I was giving her a couple of minutes to come around to my way of thinking. I was about 20 feet north of the hound looking south towards her.

All of a sudden a very bright red light appeared in the sky just a bit to my left. It was moving very fast towards the west. At first I thought it was a shooting star, but I quickly ruled that out. It wasn't moving in a straight line, it changed it's speed slightly as it swerved, and the light had a very distinct outline or edge to it. What I mean by that is that the light didn't appear distant and/or "fuzzy". Although I was looking in the general direction of the airport, there was nothing to indicate this was anything like a plane in the distance. If I had to guess, I'd say it was maybe 100 feet away and perhaps an inch in diameter. (But yes, it is possible it was a larger object further away.) It was deep red, and it was bright, but it wasn't actually casting any light. In other words, it was very easy to spot, but it wasn't illuminating anything with its own light. I only saw it for maybe one second, two seconds max, before the light went completely out... just before it would've disappeared from view behind the trees. The area was very quiet, there was no wind, (no cloud cover either that I recall), and no sound was produced by whatever it was that I saw. There was no evidence of fireworks or flares. I'm 60 years of age, and have never previously witnessed anything like this. It was very strange.

-Patrick

PS. I was completely sober, and my vision is good. The dog didn't appear to notice anything, but she is 15 years of age!

Orb at Alma and 48th


4-Aug-2016, Blind Bay, BC: (about 8:15 pm)

It first looked like silver glint coming right toward me high in the sky like a vertical oval then I watched it start dropping toward the hills. It appeared to have changed direction and the shape changed. I took 2 pictures but I cannot see the object in the pictures even though I could see it with my eyes. I grabbed the binoculars and it looked like one of those safe lawn darts falling but dazzling white and no middle piece. It moved at a steady pace downward and dropped behind the hills. I have been coming to the Okanagan for 40 years and I have never seen anything like it.

Every Night, Surrey, BC:

My family and I see this every night. It is always in the southern part of the sky. What caught our attention was the large orange glow which appears to be the front of this craft. The orange light can be seen slowly turn right and left up and down but as my son pointed out behind this orange ball there is another one quite a distance away. They seem to move with each other and with closer and a long time watching you can see two other glows but more starish but again move with the others. We think it's one giant ship because it moves like a boat. The night we saw a commercial plane fly behind the light confirmed that these illumination's are in the sky not atmosphere or space. I've taken several pictures but to be honest it can't be seen the same as with your eye.

6-Aug-2016, Vernon, BC:

I am not sure what I saw tonight, but it sure as heck was not a plane...and was too large in size to be a satellite. There were many planes in the sky tonight and it was rather cloudy, but I spend a lot of time star gazing so the night sky here is not unfamiliar to me, what I saw was nothing I have seen before. My mother and I were at "Vernon Secondary School" in Vernon, BC Aug 6 2016, we were in the school field watching the thunder and lighting that was taking place and I said to my mother "look at that! is that a planet or something ?? ". It was a large orange orb looking thing about the size of ....half a full moon i'd say, and we thought nothing of it just that it looked really pretty orange colour and that it was a possible planet or something, then around 10:30 pm about 10-15 mins after we noticed the orange orb, the big orange orb started to move up then down at a slow pace, then as it went back up it kind of shot up and blinked in and out almost like an electrical short out, the orange orb turned into two small white lights that were sporadically moving around and making the same short out spark then shot up and was gone and we stood there and looked for about a half an hour after to see if we would see anything again but there was nothing. I did not get any photos as we were quite excited and overwhelmed, not knowing what we were seeing but I wish I had! I hope my mom and I were not the only ones who saw this incredible orange beauty what ever it may have been.

6-Aug-2016, Victoria, BC: (10:30 pm)

Three large orange orbs over Victoria BC Saturday night. One was away from the other two and they were in a row. My Dad and I were both in the car at the same time and questioned each other if we had both really seen them or if we were seeing things. The military noted last year they would be training with drones, but these were not flashing or moving. We tried to look for them as went down the road, but they were only in the sky for a couple of minutes then vanished.

12-Aug-2016, Surrey, BC: (8:01 pm)

Sun was in front of us driving, this was off to the right side of car...It was very large and kind of a square shape, and fairly low, & bright orangey-yellow colour, and it didn't seem to be moving....3 people in car saw it...We were heading home from Langley BC to Surrey BC.....(we were on the free way) it was 8:01 pm....

12-Aug-2016, White Rock, BC: (11:30 pm)

I was outside on my deck in White Rock watching the Perseid meteor shower and was sitting with my head on the back of our deck lounge looking straight up watching for meteors. All of a sudden there was a bright flash between the stars, about twice as bright as the stars around it. I kept watching and a second or two later there was another flash a little further over so I grabbed my binoculars and could see the object between flashes moving very quickly to the south and it looked like it was either tumbling or turning as it moved. The flashing was not a constant pace. It was difficult to tell the exact shape because of the tumbling appearance. I watched it until it disappeared to the south which lasted about 8-10 seconds. I was wondering was this space junk that the sun was reflecting off of as it tumbled or some kind of craft?

18-Aug-2016, Trail, BC: (10:05 pm)

I was on the roof of our RV and we had just watched the full moon rise not too long beforehand. I was thinking of of all the constellation's and I noticed a bright star then as I stared longer a humming sound and movement occurred. I watched longer to ensure actual movement and called to my partner. It continued, he couldn't see it but it's there.

18-Aug-2016, Port Alice, BC: (10:30 pm)

On Aug 18/16 I was watching the sky for the meteorite showers. Due west I saw a very bright light (4xbrighter than the stars) moving at a very steady slow speed across the sky. It was heading south with no noise, Port Alice is a very small quiet town and there was no town noise to interfere. As this light traveled slowly south the light seemed to be non directional like a globe. As I was viewing this light through my Pentax 7x50 field binoculars looking for the signature of an airplane with it's flashing red/green lights running lights of which there was no sign. I followed it with the binoculars listening for a sound of which there was nothing for about a half a minute the light shut off, not behind anything just shut off and no trace of it after.

19-Aug-2016, White Rock, BC: (about 10:20 pm)

My husband and I frequent this beach on a regular basis. Late night walks are great because we have a dog and it allows him some freedom from always being on leash when there are crowds of people. As we were walking down the beach heading north/west I happen to look up and see a very large, extremely bright red light in the sky. My husband's first guess was a helicopter. For a minute or so we weren't completely focused on it having already decided what it was but it soon again grabbed our attention. We noticed that it looked as if it was standing still but was actually heading directly toward us. What at first seemed to be one red light was actually three in a triangle formation bright enough that the halo from the light made it appear as one from a distance. There were no other lights at all, no anticollision lights, no flashing lights at all. No other colours. No noise. We are relatively close to several airports including one major one and as we were watching a commercial airliner flew below and in front of this object. In comparison the plane was a grain of rice. The object continued in the same direction for maybe three minutes and then moved 90° sideways like a backwards, laying down "L". Within 30 seconds of this direction change it covered a massive amount of space and suddenly shrunk from a massive red object to literally what seemed like a pinpoint and was gone. There was no sound. We could hear the planes. It was not a plane. We live in whalley, we see helicopters all the time, night and day. It was not a helicopter. We are familiar with drones, this was massive. To have the spread of the three lights so clear at such a high altitude way above the planes it has to have been the size of a football field. We thought Japanese lantern but this was completely in control of its movements. Not a lantern. We literally stood there for at least an hour after watching all other air traffic and it did not even come close. This was really hard to put into words as it was something beyond what I can describe properly. It was difficult to wrap my brain around what I was seeing/had seen. Also it was a completely cloud free, clear nighttime sky.

23-Aug-2016, East Vancouver, BC: (9 pm)

I saw a light in the sky bobbing up and down over Grandview Highway and Skeena, dipping up and down moving faster than any plane of helicopter could. It was changing colours green and than red, then disappearing entirely. It could bob side to side and up and down. It was moving above my neighbourhood. (Searching) I was scared it was coming for me since I am a highly sensitive person. So I booted it to Walmart. It started to kind of follow me. But then went to the right. And kept going. Its colours were best described as light green. Not the kind you would find on a plane. Also Its lights were covering the whole... orb? craft. I don't know. Tell me if you saw it too.

25-Aug-2016, Ucluelet, BC: (10 pm)

While camping this week in Ucluelet I witnessed and photographed something I am unsure of. Around 9:55pm I headed to the small beach that the walk-in campsites back onto with a tripod on digital camera to capture some long exposures of the Milky Way. After roughly 5 minutes while I was taking a photo looking roughly South towards the Milky Way, I noticed to my right a bright light. The light was roughly SW, maybe 1 mile away, and appeared quite bright. It looked as thought it was not quite on the horizon and the light seemed to dance and be the same color as a campfire seen from a distance. I realized that the reflection of this light off the ocean was quite bright and noticeable, however I did not hear anyone on the beach mention it aloud from the position I was in. There were at least 3 groups of people having beach fires and the light was very noticeable but perhaps not so much when visiting w/ friends around a fire. In any case I found it odd. The light was brilliant and slightly dancing for maybe half a minute to 1 minute in duration and then suddenly it was no longer there. As I took another long exposure photo it came on again in the exact same position. I do not recall the duration but it was not as brilliant this time but did come on abruptly and turn off abruptly. After this I turned my camera and tripod and set up to capture the light if it came on again, which it did. I have 2 exposures at 30seconds of this light. The first exposure captured the light for nearly the entire exposure if not all of it (30secs) and the light was brilliant and shimmery for the duration and simply turned off. The second exposure of 30secs captured maybe 10seconds of it at the start of the shot and it seemed to have lost it's brilliance and the light kind of swayed and flickered much like a campfire flame would, kind of dying out within 2seconds. I have not real way of telling how far away the light is but when I zoom into the photo it appears, as I had suspected, to be above the horizon line of the ocean. I would guesstimate that with the perceived distance it must have been at least 30-50 feet above the water. I also took a 30second exposure of the area without the light and could not determine if there was a boat in the area and I do not think this was a buoy, although there does appear to be something on the water in the immediate area where the light was but it is difficult to make out what it may be, if anything. During the day there is no discernible water marker in the area. The skies were probably the clearest I have ever seen in the area and in the photo there is a visible layer of water vapor on top of the water which the light is clearly above.

I have RAW format image files for inspection if required and I can also provide a rough mock up on Google satellite of my position. I am hoping there is some rational explanation for what this might have been. I did not time the intervals between the light being on, however it did not seem to follow a particular pattern. Of the 4 times the light came on it ceased to come on in any regularity after my last exposure. I waited another 10 minutes and headed back to camp amazed at the lack of light pollution that night, as well as feeling very curious as to what I may have captured on my camera.

My partner and I live high up in a building downtown and spotted a light blue orb light with a white light tail flying at the speed of a drone flying low over the buildings but then disappeared into thin air. It left us both in complete shock. Wanted to know if anyone else witnessed this. Thanks.

28-Aug-2016, Richmond, BC: (9:30 - 10:00 pm)

My wife and I were walking at the park near our home in Richmond after dinner under a cloudy sky at around 9:30 on Aug 28, 2016.  I saw some white illuminating objects moving around the cloud and my wife confirmed she could also see them.  Shape is round like a coin and there were 3 of them chasing one another in a circle clockwise constantly and arrived at the same position of the cloud about every 5 seconds.  The objects did not appear on any part of the clear sky and it would not move to another cloud.  We stood there and watched for about 10 minutes. There were planes travelling occasionally and the moving speed is at least 10 times faster than the planes.  We went home and got our son out to watch 10 minutes later. We stared at the cloud and we saw some vertical light moving from right to left and we know the moving objects still  exist as the light also appeared before. We finally saw them again at another cloud further north with exactly same number of objects, same shape and movement.  We tried taking pictures with our phone, but failed due to the very small contrast.  We stood there and watched for another 10 minutes as the moving objects became less and less visible in the cloud.  This is the first time that we saw UFOs and it was so real that all three of us would not have any doubt at all.

Blue hovering lights go back and forth and circles no noise got video.

18-Sep-2016, Burnaby, BC: (5 pm)

At around 5:00pm on Sunday, September 18, 2016, I witnessed a very bright point of light in the sky due north of where I was sitting at a picnic table behind McGill Library, Burnaby, on the north side. From my point of view, it was above Cypress Mountain... but in distance seemed outside of the atmosphere. It was like the brightest star you may see in the night sky, but much brighter than that, in broad daylight. It remained in the exact same position in the sky for approximately 20 minutes. It was not an airplane which have flashing lights and either leave jet trails or detectable movement and sound. The light dimmed and brightened at very random intervals. I considered that it could be a rotating satellite in geo-synchrous orbit. However, the varying degrees of brightness of this object at random times completely contradicted this theory. As well, it did not relate to any geo-synchronous orbit that would correspond this particular position in the sky. At times it was brighter than any planet or the brightest star in the night sky... once again this was broad daylight. I pointed out this object to passersby including a group of Italians playing bacci ball very nearby me who are regular in this area. Most people found it interesting but then dismissed it shortly. At approximately 5:20pm the object flashed very bright 4 times and then disappeared. I was able to record a short amount of video of it's position in the sky but didn't record times of its extreme brightness, due to error in thinking I was recording on my camera phone at the time but was not. My battery was also very low and when I realized my mistake I waiting for a more spectaular display worthy of record, however it vanished at 5:20pm. This object was not an aircraft or a satellite.  The levels of brightness and how random it was suggests otherwise.

I relay this information to you in complete truth and sincerity.

Over the sea, just off Kye Bay. This was a UFO, simply because we couldn't identify what it was. It looked like the headlights of a plane coming towards us to start with, but then they became bigger and it was one big light with irregular streaks coming off it. We watched it and it didn't move, just hovered there with the light reflecting over  the water all the way to the beach. We turned away to look in the other direction, just for a couple of seconds and when we looked for it again, it was gone without a trace. There was nothing to see in the sky, no plane, no helicopter, lights, nothing. It was strange and I am hoping that someone else in the area saw it and can tell us what it was.

21-Sep-2016, Victoria, BC: (1:31 am)

Taking the dog out for a walk at Topaz Park in Victoria BC and just saw a UFO. Triangular. A perfect equilateral triangle. About 1000 feet estimated altitude. 3 equally spaced apart amber coloured lights on the bottom. Flew NE or NNE almost right right over top the park facing Finlayson Street. Very fast speed estimated 300-450 km/hr. Approximate "wingspan" was about that of a DH3 seaplane (that we have fly over head daily). Completely silent. Called Victoria Police to report it. I saw it for about 30 seconds before I lost sight of it behind trees/houses. I was wearing velcro gloves at the time I was playing fetch with my dog so by the time I took out my phone, threw my glove, slid my camera open and slid to video mode to record a video it was nearly gone behind the houses and I only got 3 seconds of black sky. I'm literally still freaking out and can't believe I'm even writing this post. I'm also a marine engineer in the Navy posted to CFB Esquimalt. I know what I saw. And I have never in my life seen anything like that before. Saw it at 01:31 and was on the line with the local police by 01:35.

I was outside on my deck in White Rock watching the Perseid meteor shower and was sitting with my head on the back of our deck lounge looking straight up watching for meteors. All of a sudden there was a bright flash between the stars, about twice as bright as the stars around it. I kept watching and a second or two later there was another flash a little further over so I grabbed my binoculars and could see the object between flashes moving very quickly to the south and it looked like it was either tumbling or turning as it moved. The flashing was not a constant pace. It was difficult to tell the exact shape because of the tumbling appearance. I watched it until it disappeared to the south which lasted about 8-10 seconds. I was wondering was this space junk that the sun was reflecting off of as it tumbled or some kind of craft?

Hi! I was with my dad yesterday (October 20th, 2016) enjoying the sunset at the sunset beach next to English Bay, Vancouver. We sat there for a while, taking pics and enjoying the beautiful sight. Suddenly, I noticed two orangy still lights in the horizon. I asked my dad if he sees them and he says that he's been wondering them for a couple minutes already. We both sat there wondering what it could be. Then I decided to take pictures of them with my camera, which was a good camera for our luck. When I was taking the pics, we noticed that the other light disappeared in the horizon all of sudden, but the other one just slowly and unnoticeably moved down. When I took the pic and zoomed in, we could see that the light was in a shape of the letter 'U'. It was really weird and we just couldn't figure out what it was, other than an UFO. It was definitely an UFO, because what else could it be? A meteor? An 'U' shaped comet? An orange plane that didn't move? Ha. After a couple of minutes, the light faded away completely.

Sir or miss,
I've seen a flying object in Victoria, BC. I was bringing my boat back into harbour when I noticed a strange thing floating just near me, over the land. I was going to pop in to Bartholomew's pub to have a drink with some guys, but it shook me so much that I just went straight home and prayed.
I've never been one to believe in ETs, but a friend recommended I contact you, because something happened that I just couldn't deny.
Lord be with you,
