UFO SIGHTING REPORTS FROM 2020

UPDATED - September 16th, 2020



12-Jan-2020, Ucluelet, BC:

Attached here are 3 pictures, before, the event and after. I notices the strange thing when I was browsing the pictures on my computer. I am attaching the pictures in original state, look above and to the right of the eagle. Picture taken at 11:55 am Ucluelet, BC from the fishermen area, looking up in the sky.  You will see I was rotating following eagle in flight.

It is not a reflection for sure, sun is behind me, no dirty lens either, the dot is not on the shot before and after, it is not the moon I think.

Cheers.

UFO*BC Responds:

Thank-you for the lovely photos.

I think you are talking about:

If that is the case, that is likely to be something very close to the camera, like a bug. If you notice that the object appears translucent and more of a blob than a solid object. That would be due to the focus and telephoto aspect you would need to catch the eagle in flight – the result is that anything closer would be almost invisible.

Perfect example is to try to take a photo of someone on the ice next time you’re at a skating rink. The net that is usually up to protect people in the seats from flying pucks, is all but invisible when zoomed in and appears as a haze rather than an object.

Thanks again for the photos – I would frame those if I were you!

17-Jan-2020, Surrey, BC: (4:45 and 7:30)

Hey, saw a post on your site about strange lights in surrey bc on October 29, 2019.

Saw these same lights Twice on Jan 17th, first time about 4:45pm, then again about 7:30pm. Looks like the poster from oct 29th lives in the same building as i do, about 10 floors below me.

Here's what i saw:

Have a pair of binoculars and whoa, were these weird to see through those!  They are different from one another, and were also different at different times.  Best i can describe: a very bright burning ball of flames with individual lights and outline of craft visible aka didn't look like it was on fire by accident, moreso a fire was part of the appearance. 4:45 pm was yellow/orange flames with bright red flame tips, 7:30 pm was white flames with bright green flame tips.  Shape was somewhat like a crown, one appeared to be rotating.

I'd say each lasted 20 minutes or so, but cant really explain what happened to them as they seemed to go behind a building that's in front of us.



10-Feb-2020, Chilliwack, BC: (6:30 am)

Hello to you, from Chilliwack in the Fraser Valley of BC.

Here i am to share with you two different sightings of the same thing, 3nights(mornings) to a week apart, because i am not understanding what i saw and I'm hoping others can help explain.

So around 530-6 am I'm looking North and see a "moving star" going East. Then another one behind it about an eye's centimeter apart. Then another, counting a total of 5, all spaced the same distance. Then they faded out right before my eyes. The best way to explain this is like a chain or wire with oil drips going down it but instead of up & down it was West to East and quite high in the sky as it appeared to be a star(s) at first. It (they) were at a higher altitude than what a plane flies at for reference.

I was alone the first sighting, but this morning (feb 10,2020) my sister was outside with me. This time it was about an hour or so later than the first sighting & had been right overhead my house where as the first one, was on the other side of my house closer to the Fraser River (about 5-10km from me?) if that makes sense. I told her about the first sighting the morning it happened, and said that it was exactly what I had explained to her the days previous.  She couldn't believe her eyes and was surprised at what she had just seen considering i had just told her about this a few days prior.

So since i have seen this twice now, i decided to report so i can possibly get some answers to what it was or entice others to come forward if they witnessed this oddity too.

Thank you for reading and i look forward to your reply.

Sincerely,
MissJenni

UFO*BC Responds:

Hello Jenni,

What you may have seen are the Starlink satellites deployed by Spacex – they look like a chain of lights separated by a distance exactly as you described. There aren't many yet, but they plan to deploy about 120 a month for the next few years.

There is a website where you can enter your location of Chilliwack as I did, and it will tell you the times and dates that the satellites will be visible.

19-Feb-2020, 100 Mile House, BC: (5:30 am)

My wife had just gotten up and I was lying in the dark bedroom and was absently looking out the window when into my field of view at the top of the window frame came a bright light (like an LED car light) little larger than the stars and it was moving in straight line. As I was trying to figure out what I was looking at a second light came into view following the first. When the third came into view I had my face against the window and was calling my wife who got there in time to see the last three disappear behind a tree in our back yard. After they went behind the tree we ran out on to the deck but they were gone behind the next building.

In all I counted twelve traveling in a row about three fingers apart at arms length in a East by South/East direction. It was clear except for a thin band of high clouds which they were above.

We routinely have commercial jets going over here either at thirty five or thirty seven thousand feet depending on direction of travel. At that height their running lights are clearly visible and one can easily discern that they have more than one light.

These moved across the sky easily four or five time faster than commercial jets. There was no discernible sound signature, no vapor trail, no running lights.

The reason this is been posted here is I can come up with no other explanation for what we saw.

UFO*BC Responds:

Thank-you for the report. What you saw is thanks to SpaceX - and they are a string of satellites which orbit in groups. There are only a few hundred in orbit at the moment, but the current plan is to increase that to thousands - so they will become a regular presence in our night sky.

My name is Dave and I live in Vancouver. It is now 06:22. About 06:05, 20 Feb.2020 I stepped outside my place for some fresh air. I looked up at a clear sky with the stars still visible with dawn approaching. I noticed at first what appeared to be a Satellite  moving across the sky directly above and moving from West to North East..then another spaced apart moving in the same direction, another all spaced apart very high altitude and counted about 10 in number.

6-Mar-2020, Mill Bay, BC:

I’m not sure what I saw this morning but I can only describe it as 8-10 satellite like lights travelling east over Mill Bay BC towards the USA in perfectly spaced formation: 2 followed by 2 followed by 3 then 2.

Very high altitude which made me think satellite but the formation doesn’t fit what I normally see. Very clear morning and very dark. Could see no contrails produced and no noise whatsoever.

I am familiar with aircraft and see them regularly but this doesn’t fit anything I normally see. My wife also witnessed this.

8-Mar-2020, Burnaby, BC:

Hello,

I was shopping with my roommate going into the Safeway at Kensington Heights Burnaby; we had been at the Buy-Low at Holdom about 40 minutes before and were admiring the moon but didn’t see anything else. After we went to Safeway on Hastings we were walking to the car and it was dark by then. We saw a large white light in the western sky with what looked like a smaller one beneath it. It was really big and did not twinkle so I knew it wasn’t a star. It never moved and we watched it for a good 5+ minutes. I was thinking maybe it was a space station or something. Any idea what this was? We saw it with the naked eye and it was still there when we got to Bainbridge Ave and Lougheed Highway, still bright and not twinkling or moving and that was about 15-20 minutes after leaving Safeway.

Thanks,
Fran

UFO*BC Responds:

Hi Fran,

The ISS is only visible for a few minutes. If you were able to see it some 20min after the first sighting, then it was likely a planet. Venus is clearly visible in our night sky (when not raining … which is seldom) this time of year. It appears as a very bright light, second only to the moon.
Here is a link that may help, my vote is Venus.

14-Mar-2020, Qualicum Beach, BC: (10:40 pm)

Good day.

Last night I was witness to a UFO sighting here in Qualicum Beach, BC.

It was about 10:30 pm and my daughter and I where on our outside hotter when all of a sudden we saw the most amazing and longest shooting star we have ever seen, after seeing this, we started talking about UFO’s and my many experiences in Mexico before. After a few minutes she went indoors and I remained in the hotter, just lying down looking at the beautiful night sky full of stars… it was then that I saw a huge triangular shape,  almost transparent, see- through , and it had small triangles within, it must have been  at least 100 meters of the ground and it was slow and steady, I saw it fly above me and then just flew away… I felt mesmerized and amazed, I felt a little bit of fear , but it quickly went away ,and after a few more minutes I came back indoors and told my wife and daughter about the incident.


15-Mar-2020, Alert Bay, BC: (10:00 pm)

Was at home with wife around 10 pm last night. We first saw two lights like shooting stars but steady and stable. Then from the same direction there came a string of equidistant lights maybe 12 or 15 traveling in line formation.

It lasted few minutes.

Location is alert bay bc.

I took a video but it seems to compress and loose quality when I try to share.

UFO*BC Responds:

I believe what you saw were the string of satellites launched by Spacex.

I went to the Heavens Above website and set it for Alert Bay. It does show that the the Spacex satellites would be visible from your location in the W/WNW direction from 8:00 until about 11:30. Is that the direction you were facing?

16-Mar-2020, Qualicum Beach, BC: (11:30 pm)

Tonight around 11:30pm in Cultus Lake, BC, I was looking up at the sky and noticed a strange bright light with a smaller dimmer light moving around it. It went on for a good 2 minutes and then row after row of the smaller dimmer lights, must've been 50 or more over the course of 20 minutes one after another moving perfectly synced in direction and a slow steady speed, some would stop and dart up and down, but would continue on the exact same path as all the other ones after. Eight other witnesses were with me none of us had ever seen anything like it. It was much too dark to get a video on a cell phone but a friend in Abbotsford, BC managed to get a video of when it all started with the one bright light and the smaller dimmer light moving around it. I am a believer we are not alone in the universe but what is going on is the real question?

UFO*BC Responds:

25-Mar-2020, Vancouver, BC:

I was near Cambie St and Marine Dr in South Vancouver at a park. A couple of friends and I looked up into the night sky and saw what seemed to be 4 satellites going in the same direction and disappearing into a possible cloud that wasn't visible. In the opposite direction we saw 1 that looked similar but had momentarily paused and slightly changed direction. We thought logically they all had to be satellites. When walking away we saw another one but this one seemed to significantly brighter but looked to be taken the same path as the first 4. As we walked towards it the UFO slowed down almost to a complete stop until it started veering into another direction and disappearing into what may have been a cloud that wasn't visible in the night sky. Could you possibly shed some light on this?

UFO*BC Responds:

The group of 4 satellites going in the same direction is thanks to SpaceX - and they are a string of satellites which orbit in groups. There are only a few hundred in orbit at the moment, but the current plan is to increase that to thousands - so they will become a regular presence in our night sky.

The other one – I cannot say … perhaps an aircraft’s landing light? As you know satellites cannot change direction, so if it wasn’t due to some type of optical effect that caused it to appear to move in a non linear fashion, then I cannot say what the 5th object was – there just isn’t enough information I’m afraid. But as mentioned the 4 are certainly SpaceX satellites.

Thanks for the report!

7-Apr-2020, Aldergrove, BC: (about 10:00 pm)

Last night, April 7,2020 (full moon) I took a photo outside of the moon about 10:00 pm at home near the Aldergrove border crossing. The photo shows another small blue bright circle to lower right of the moon. A friend in Nanaimo had the same blue circle in her photo. I am curious to know what it is.

UFO*BC Responds:

I’m curious, was the blue orb visible to the naked eye when you took the photo?

Thank-you

Witness Responds:

Not really, no.

UFO*BC Responds:

Thanks for the reply.

I suspected that it was not visible to the naked eye. What you have there is what is commonly called a lens flare. They are often found when the lens is very small (like in a phone camera) and the light source is very bright (as in the full moon). Here in the Wikipedia entry for it- and they can do a much better job explaining it than I can do 😊

11-Apr-2020, Surrey, BC: (3:10 am)

On April 11 2020 in South Surrey BC, at 3:10 am I woke up couldn't sleep made my self a coffee, turned on my TV and sat by my window as I do every am, when I noticed a strange light outside, really unusual.

I would like to mention I reside in a RV and have done so for 14 years and in the same lot, so a strange light/glow would really be out of place. I was memorized for a moment, couldn't really explain what it was, at that moment I turned my TV off to attempt a better view through the cedar hedges but I needed more. I had my slippers on so I went outside, climbed my ladder to my roof and stood there in awe. There was a round orange/yellow stationary object  absolutely  no noise then it took off straight up well in the direction of 1:00 o'clock. I stood there for a few more seconds, climbed down, went in, and to remember, I wrote it in my journal. Also used my phone for compass direction, 128 SE from where I saw/ seen it . The night was clear as to be sure it wasn't the moon I saw the moon just off my right shoulder, unusual still can't explain it, was the strangest thing I have seen and yes I should have taken my phone but curiosity got the better of me!

19-Apr-2020, Vancouver, BC: (1:00 am)

Staying at 220 Princess Avenue, 9th floor when I noticed a green and red triangle SHAPE moving east to west in a blink of an eye was gone about 30 mins. Never seen anything like that before..

19-Apr-2020, Chilliwack, BC: (10:30 pm)

Hello there. This sighting happened 10:30pm or so, Sunday April 19th 2020, just outside Chilliwack BC. I had been sitting, watching the sky & flashing a pattern with a flashlight. After a while, I spotted a series of Skylink satellites.. all in an evenly spaced row.. very interesting.. they were a ways south of dead center of the sky & moving west to east from what i could tell.. i was almost looking straight up watching them.. the big dipper was a little off to the left & higher up of where i was looking at the time.. whats really interesting is i then noticed another ‘light’ about the same size as the satelites, but brighter & moving faster.. it was navigating in a curved path from an area on one side of the row of satelites, to an area on the opposite side of them.. like, crossing their path.. this curved trajectory was repeated three times, then the object sped off and became too dim/ small to see. It was like it was being ‘piloted’.. watching it ‘felt’ totally different from the satelites or a plane that passed earlier..  kind of a weird feeling watching this thing!

22-Apr-2020, Ashcroft, BC:

I got it on film..... I came home seen what was 2 long lines side by side in the sky. When it went over stars they would disappear. I thought I never caught it on my cell phone but after some time looking at it I spotted it on the film and so did my nephew. Just outside of Ashcroft. (video attached)

UFO*BC Responds:

Here is an enhanced still from your video, you can see the lights (central strip):

What you’re seeing (and I must say I’m impressed you managed to film them with a smartphone) are the Space X Starlink satellites .. here is another show of them

You can find all the details here:

Not sure what I witnessed last night ... but definitely scared the hell out of me......something flew by my house 300 to 400 hundred feet off the ground .... it was totally silent ... it had form but was see through! I know weird eh !!! I yelled for my wife, she later said that she believed me .... a lot of activity in the sky last night shortly after the SpaceX Satellite show. I can give you more information if you would like.

UFO*BC Responds:

Yes please, any details as to what you saw would be great. Typical things are time, date, location, direction you were facing, direction of travel of object (if any), size shape of object etc.

17-June-2020, Smithers, BC: (3:23 am)

Early this morning I was standing on the back deck of my house between 3:30am - 3:35am June 17, 2020 on Poplar Road in Smithers, BC.

I was facing towards 127 degrees SE, when the event was noticed and captured from start. When it ended I was roughly facing 103 degrees East.

I couldn’t use my Video option in my phone, it was too dark, however; my photo worked.. and used the PhotoBurst option on iPhone to take a video-like, photo experience. Edited in iMovie to form a video.

This video doesn’t do justice to what was seen by the eyes’. There were several lights flashing/blinking around [about 6],.. and, that black bar is the roof of my home.

Also, in the past month I’ve witnessed several [about 10] UFO sightings above/around my home… no one believed me, so I finally got some proof! Haha-


UFO*BC Responds:

Just wanted to update as to our findings
 
After looking at air traffic, I came across what I think may be what you saw – at least the timing, location and direction are spot on the money.
 
For 03:23PST we need 10:23UTC, so
 
https://www.flightradar24.com/2020-06-17/10:23/12x/54.43,-127.18/8

 
The large plane (right above Houston in the big photo) is en-route to ORD from ANC Boeing 777, flight CAO1055 Would be visible in the sky. The direction SE/E would be correct, and perhaps the lights on the newer 777s may look a bit funky from the ground ..
 
At 3:20am it was this close:

At the time of the event (3:23), it was here (below) … so it could just be an airplane??

Other than that, I am not too sure what else it could be. As this field is full of unknowns, and we cannot be sure about anything, but I’m reasonably convinced you saw a Boeing 777 that night en-route to Chicago. What do you think?

Thanks

28-Jun-2020, French Creek, BC: (1:15 pm)

Hi, I live in French creek on Vancouver island. Today I saw 3 what I thought at first to be bright silver balloons flying past me. I couldn’t tell until I saw a friend around the corner seeing what I saw. Sonya’s husband has binocs out and said not balloons. One of them turned upside down at one point. Then a 4th flew right above our heads. It was the same bright silver, round with hollow inside and lights around it. It wasn’t big so maybe 2-3 feet in width. And off it went into the distance. All 4 seemed to go off in different directions. If they were drones, I would think they’d not be allowed because we have an airport nearby. I don’t know much about drones but these did not look like typical drones I’ve ever seen and they didn’t make any noise. I’m very curious. Unfortunately I didn’t have my phone with me to take pic but there are 3 of us that saw the same thing. Any ideas? I don’t know who to report this to. This occurred today approx 1:15 pm.

14-July-2020, Lillooet, BC: (around midnight)

On July 14 2020, myself and 2 other friends were camping near Lillooet, BC. At approximately 12am, we laid down to star gaze. The night sky was clear and black. If you’ve ever been to this area at night, you’ll know that there is nearly zero light pollution. We could see the entire night sky, including the glow of the Milky Way galaxy. As we were looking for constellations, we noticed a couple satellites moving through the sky and saw several shooting stars.

Moments later we all witnessed a strange light moving in the sky. At first glance we believed it to be another satellite. But as we watched the light, we noticed it move in a strange pattern. It moved across the sky, then stopped suddenly. It began to glow like a bright shining star, then dimmed, then moved again in a different direction. It did this a few times. Moving, then glowing, then dimming, and moving again, in a zig-zag pattern. We watched the dim light disappear into the sky.

We wanted to share our story for a possible explanation or if another person may have witness something similar.

15-Jul-2020, Maple Ridge, BC: (11 pm)

I am seeing small visible lights in sky tonight moving around north to south and east to west. I phoned my cousin and pointed them out and he also saw them. Clearly moving around in different directions. Maybe a dozen or so of them all over the sky.

UFO*BC Responds:

Thanks for the report. Can you provide some more information as to where you were at the time, and which direction you were facing?

What are the lights doing? Did they just appear? Or did they arrive from a particular direction?

Thanks

Witness Responds:

In Maple Ridge at around 11pm. I was looking south. Pretty much north of the south horizon. I was star gazing and then I saw one move. Small light. Then another move. Small light. Sometimes they would emit a light or look blinking. One started moving to North towards Whistler and I followed it. Another started moving east. There must've been like half dozen.


17/20-July-2020, Lone Butte, BC: (after 11:55 pm)

Myself and 6 friends were staying at a cabin up in Bridge Lake in Lone Butte Canada from July 17-20 and witnessed lights in the sky of different sizes and brightness and colours every night after 11:55 pm. We saw some divide from one light into three, hover and fly off. At one point two crossed paths hovered and continued in different directions, most of the sightings occurred crossing past the Milky Way or that general viewpoint. From our vantage point it seemed like they were the same size as the stars and very far above us and would cross the entire skyline moving in fast jerky movements, stopping and or shooting off at a fast pace. We managed to capture one on a cell phone, all you can see is a tiny dot moving across the screen and even though there was a full sky of stars the phone camera only shows the light which we though was strange even at the time. Here’s the video we got of a smaller one, we are convinced they were not bugs or satellites. Would love to know if anyone else saw anything that weekend. We enjoyed all the moments and it will remain a magical memory for all of us.



22-July-2020, Vancouver, BC: (10 pm)

On July 22nd, around 10 pm, we were standing in an alley between 55 and 57 Street in the backyard of a house on Knight Street. We were looking toward the southern hemisphere at Jupiter and Saturn I believe. We saw three red lights forming a triangle with a green blinking centre.

UFO*BC Responds:

Can you describe what made the light appear to be something out of the ordinary - what properties would lead you to believe that?

What did the triangle do? Was there any solid structure making up the object or just 3 lights?

Please feel free to write the entire event, and include any/all details you can think of!

Thanks
Richard

While I’m doing this on my phone he starts describing three lights... long story short I looked up and saw three red lights in a a triangle form with an intermittent green flash in the centre. I immediately got out thinking could be a drone and said, "Let’s walk closer to see if we can get a better view.", but after walking one block we concluded it was too far away to get closer so there was no visual other than lights. After observing for about 30 seconds it literally slid across the sky like it was on a slide rail and the distance it travelled had to be pretty far because from our point of view it looked like it was on the west of Jupiter and then after sliding across the sky It appeared on the other side of Saturn. Note we did not lose sight of it travelling across the sky. It stayed in this location for about 60 seconds and then it slid back to the original position for about two more minutes then it slid halfway between those two points, turned into a white light and look like it shot off into the distance toward Jupiter. Disappearing within two seconds it also turned into a white light as it shot away. We went back the next night thinking we could see it again but we saw nothing. My coworker said, "Google it. I can’t believe we are the only ones who saw it." When I did I found recent sightings on your website and a video that somebody took on July 22. In that video it appeared to be the same three red lights, however it did not move across the sky like we saw it and some comments on your website suggested it was a weather balloon but I think not!

25-July-2020, Surrey, BC: (about 11:25 pm)

I recently just saw a UFO July 25th 2020 around 11:25pm (not sure of the exact time) flying over my house very slowly roughly around these coordinates 49.043544, -122.797045 heading east. At first I thought it was one of the brightest stars but then I quickly realized it was moving. After about 20 seconds of watching it move with no sound a military helicopter (almost positive it was one but remember it was the middle of the night) came flying right towards object lights on and everything. As soon as the chopper got within 3000 meters or less (it was above my house at this point) the object suddenly started moving faster and faster until its light completely faded into the night probably took about 15-20 seconds the light faded in about 5 seconds. The trajectory of the object looked to me as if it left the atmosphere. I have never seen anything move so fast and silently. After the light disappeared the chopper quickly did a u-turn and during this, all the lights on the chopper turned off only with about 1 light on after the whole ordeal. I wish I would have recorded this event but due to the nature of what I was seeing I came to the conclusion I would not have enough time to run inside and come back out because at first I thought it was a plane (it is normal to see planes fly over my house daily). I am contacting you because this is not the first time I have seen an object over my house in my backyard but this is the first time I have seen another aircraft follow one. I also believe I am not the only one who witnessed this event as when I checked google trends shortly after the event there were over 100 google searches in my area on the topic "Ufo sighting bc". I hope this information is of use and if you do ever get any footage from July 25th 2020 in my area could you please forward it to me I cannot be the only one in such a busy area.

28-Jul-2020, Burnaby, BC: (10:15 pm)

I just came across your page while googling UFO in Burnaby because that is what I just witnessed. An object I can't identify.

At approximately 10:15pm this evening I noticed a bright light moving from the north west over my home and over towards the south east over central Burnaby. There was no sound, only one very bright light and no flashing lights like planes have.  After about 30 seconds, the light dimmed and was gone. There are no clouds in the sky and it was moving slowly at first but picked up speed a bit. It was quite high up and the light was brighter than any aircraft I've seen and when it dimmed it was like the battery of a flashlight was dying and it faded quickly. No idea what this was.

29-July-2020, Squamish, BC: (10:20 pm)

We had a bright moon in Squamish, I went out on my balcony to take a photo and realized that what looked like a star, but bigger, was moving to the left. It flew over the Chief and was gone. It didn't have anything flashing and was quiet, it looked to be low but I couldn't really tell as it flew over the mountain.

The photos were taken at 10:21 pm on July 28th/2020 from downtown Squamish, right across from the library.




30-July-2020, Surrey, BC: (10:20 pm)

Tonight (July 30th) at approximately 10:20 PM I was in the neighborhood of chimney heights in surrey bc looking at the sky admiring Jupiter and Saturn so close in the sky when I noticed a moving star that looked like the other recent sightings on the site. It was moving slowly at first till it started to pick up speed as it looked like it was moving farther way till it just disappeared in the middle of the sky like it left earth.

I was approximately 500m from chimney hill elementary school facing south toward Seattle staring at the planets until I noticed the moving star which disappeared to the right of Jupiter. I use an app to track the planets so I'm certain about what I was looking at. Also 2 other people were with me at the time of the sighting.

30-July-2020, Hope, BC: (about 11 pm)

Hope, BC. No picture because moving extremely quick and caught us by surprise. It was a very large oval of lights that almost looked like it was trying to be transparent but one unit appeared to the North above lake of the woods and within a few seconds slid across the sky into behind the mountain. A friend and I were both sitting talking looking in that direction and when it appeared we stopped for a second, both saw and watched, then I said "Did u just see that too?" And my friend said, "Ya, that was fuckin weird." We saw the same thing because she said Pan-shaped lights and I said oval-shaped lights. Pretty much the same time. The size compared to the mountain was the same as the top portion and it very elegantly slid out of site with no sound. Very quickly.


Aug-2020, Princeton:

Hello from Princeton BC. It seems every night I see a bright red flashing light with a blue and white light at about 15 degrees above the northern horizon. It appears just after dark in the same place and doesn’t move while I watch. Last month during neowise watching I saw it the first time and then it was in the south east at 20 degrees above the horizon. It actually looks like a police car hovering in mid-air.

UFO*BC Responds:

I know the local area is getting cell tower upgrades, could it be you are seeing a newly installed beacon for air traffic to notify them of the new towers being installed?

I saw this go across the sky Aug 6th 2020 at 4:39am.










I will also send a video of it. It was much larger than a plane and made no noise.

UFO*BC Responds:

Thank you for the photos and video of that very interesting object. Could you give us a brief description of the timeline? What first brought your attention to it? What direction were you facing? How much of the sky did it traverse? How long did you watch it? How did you lose sight of it? Did it fade away as the sky got brighter? Did it go behind a tree/building?

One puzzling aspect, some photos show the object angling from from low on the left to high on the right, but other photos show it angled the opposite direction. Did it change its angle, or did some of the images get reversed?

Witness Responds:

I was outside having my coffee at 4:35am looking at the stars (facing West at 5042 Wesley Rd) when I noticed the object and began watching it for about 1min before I started photographing it.

I took 4 photos in about 1min time frame and then started the recording that lasted 1 min 46 sec. In that recording it was West of me heading East toward the sunrise. That is why its angle changed as it passed almost over me heading East towards Mount Baker with no noise (I live in a very quiet area) In the beginning of the video it disappeared behind a large Fir tree for a few seconds.
After I stopped recording, I took a few more photos (facing East) as It disappeared out of my site due to the distance and brightness (close to Mount Baker). In total it took about 5-6 min from first site to out of site.

UFO*BC Responds:

OK, now I am a little embarrassed. I believe what you have photographed and filmed is a tight group of SpaceX Starlink satellites! At that time of day (on Aug 7, not Aug 6) they could be seen travelling from WNW to ENE. They were so tightly packed that they looked like 1 solid object. Here is another view from Fort Worth, Texas last January, where they were spread out a bit more - SpaceX.

8-Aug-2020, Aldergrove, BC: (10 pm)

Hello I’m in BC exactly between Aldergrove and Langley. Me and my girlfriend saw a bright red light moving west to east. At her family’s house. Saturday 10pm. South of my location. Came into view, solid red light moving straight. No sound and it was so bright and not blinking so we started watching it. Kinda zigged, it went behind the house so we walked around, couldn’t find it for a second then it appeared in the same area going the same way. So I quickly grabbed my binoculars, we’re going camping so I have them handy. Looked at it for 10 seconds before it disappeared behind a tree in the front yard. (It was just a single bright light. Moving.) So we walked to our left 10 steps to see it again and it was gone. Totally gone, it should have been right there. We stood silent and could hear the next plane going by. But they all blink and are not as bright as this thing was. Other people on this site seem to explain the same thing. Hoping we can figure it out.

8-Aug-2020, Abbotsford: (about 10 pm)

In response to the attached report (see "8-Aug-2020, Aldergrove" above). My husband saw the same phenomenon around the same time from one of our bedroom windows. He saw 4 different objects flying around in circles towards the North of Abbotsford. He then woke me up and when I looked there were only 2 objects, appeared to have 3 bright white lights and 1 red light. It wasn't anything like a plane. We live in the country side and it is pretty quiet. There was no sound from these objects and were roughly not more than 500 feet from ground. I witnessed it for about close to 10 minutes. I unfortunately didn't think of making a video as I was in such an awe to watch the whole thing live. I have never observed anything like it before.

10-Aug-2020, Surrey, BC: (about 11:30 pm)

Hello. Last night August 10th 2020 around 11:30pm, I noticed a red light flash for about a second and a half.  Then about 10 seconds later I saw a white light flash but it was a little further away to the left and then I saw a white flash very dim a little further away again and then nothing seen after the total of 3 flashes.

This was observed from around King George Highway and 108th Avenue (North Surrey) I was looking in the South part of the sky when I saw this so these flashes would have been South of Surrey Central.  I would not have submitted this except others have seen something similar over last few nights.

14-Aug-2020, Sooke, BC: (around 7:30 pm)

I am a ten year old girl and I am using my dads email address. I believe I have seen a UFO. It looked like a silver shining flying disk. It was about 200 feet off the ground. I looked at my family to say look look but when I turned back around and it was gone. I know this sounds crazy but I know I saw it. It was not a plane or a helicopter or a satellite. It was different. This is her dad it appeared behind our backyard around 730 pm aug 14th in sooke bc near the ocean.

14-Aug-2020, Port Moody, BC: (11:30 pm)

Clear night.

My friend and I were both looking at Saturn. This was the second time within about 20 minutes. This time we noticed a light similar in brightness to Saturn. It was stationary, relatively close,  and located  directly above. No flashing lights, no odd colours. It began to slowly move upwards and instantly disappeared within a few seconds.

14-Aug-2020, North Burnaby, BC: (11:45 pm)

I was visiting friends in the North Burnaby area when I stepped out on the balcony to get some air.  The evening was completely clear, not a cloud in the sky; looking straight out from the balcony I was facing north and a bit west (N 345).  I looked up to check out the stars and really couldn’t see any because my eyes hadn’t quite adjusted and of course the typical light pollution didn’t help.  Looking straight up I scanned the sky directly above me and noticed a bright light above me in the north and slightly east sky; for a better understanding, looking straight up, the light was just to my right, or slightly east (NE 50).

At first I thought it was a very bright star because it wasn’t moving, no red, blue or flashing lights so I ruled out a plane.  I’ve seen the SpaceX satellites and space station, which have a trajectory, so I ruled those out.  When I say bright, I mean it was brighter and larger than Venus has been over this past year, that’s why at first I thought it was a plane.  As I watched, the light slowly started to fade, seem to grow smaller as if moving away, and eventually it completely disappeared.  I kept scanning the northern sky from east to west for another 10 minutes to see if the light appeared anywhere else, but I saw nothing.

I’ve seen similar phenomenon on 4 separate occasions in the past 10-years; I think I’m looking at a bright star and it disappears.  In two cases they have appeared as a bright star for a period of seconds, then slowly dim out.  On the other two occasions the light has been steady, become brighter and larger, and then quickly disappears as if an exploding star.  In every case these objects are stationary.

15-Aug-2020, New Westminster, BC: (9:25 pm)

I swear to god on my life this was a once in a lifetime thing. Last night August 15 2020 around 9:25 or so I was sitting having a cigarette and noticed a very very bright light to my left (it was flashing like a plane except there was only the bright light on no other colors). At first I thought it was a plane but, as I watched it, it wasn't moving like one. It would be in one spot and blink then a second later be in a different place it seemed to move sporadic but did not move forward.  I got up to take a closer look and a flash of light went by me over my head to the left. I then watched the sky and to my right about 3 minutes later I saw a light in the shape of a 3d box. It was on a slanted position it looked to be about 50 meters in length it started at one point then grew in to a box then collapsed from back to front in a split second. It  illuminated the cloud very slightly. It looked like something going in to another dimension it took me a few hours to fall to sleep after that. I have never seen anything like that before......any suggestions on what I saw?

15-Aug-2020, Chilliwack, BC: (around 9:30 pm)

Wife and I witnessed an object that would glow brilliantly and slowly pulsate into dim red. The object came into my vision flying SSE towards the airport then suddenly jerked towards north and flew over nw and went down behind the mountain. The object did not fly straight at all, the best i can describe its flight is as weightless, flies like its rocket propelled, yet it was able to quickly descend falling side to side like a feather. No sound at all, flew faster than anything I've ever seen, it defies logic, no human could withstand the forces. Entire sighting lasted close to 30 seconds. I saw a bright star on Friday (Aug 14) next to Jupiter and I logged Skyview, looked down for a sec and the star was gone. That experience is the reason I was looking up last night. Many aircraft were in the sky all over the area so surely one pilot must have seen something.

17-Aug-2020, Vancouver, BC: (8 pm)

Yesterday evening around 8pm I was sitting on my balcony. It was still daylight, so when I looked to the sky and saw a very bright light I knew it was something strange. I asked my roommate to come take a look and sure enough the light became brighter and began to move, first vertically, then horizontally, then in a very sporadic manner. It veered off to the right and the light inverted, turned into a tiny black dot and sailed off to the north.

About an hour later I was sitting in my bedroom with the blinds drawn and felt the same light, back in the same area of the sky shining through my window. This was a very bright and large object. We managed to capture a video this time.

About twenty minutes after the object disappeared behind the building a very low flying plane came and circled the area about a half dozen times.


17-Aug-2020, Burnaby, BC: (10:20 pm)

Hey. I live in North Burnaby BC and got a call from a friend of mine on August 17th of a red bright dot in the sky that got his attention to the point he called his family out to see. The red pinkish light  disappeared then came back and disappeared again. I went to look around in the location as I was driving home and didn’t see anything. On the return home I saw a red light blinking faintly near North Vancouver. My friend had seen it to the east 15 minutes prior. The next day on August 18th I got a call from another friend saying they saw this red pinkish dot near north Burnaby that seemed to warp off leaving a trail of pink light when it shot. Anyways here’s my video not sure if it’s the same light they reported but I saw this over North Vancouver bridge.


20-Aug-2020, Chilliwack, BC: (11:00 pm)

Hi. I live in Chilliwack BC, and on Aug 20th, 2020 at 11:00PM. I went  out on the porch and suddenly there was a huge bright orange light, high in the SE sky, kinda over Cultus Lake area. It was big, then slowly faded to nothing, then again appeared. Never seen anything like it. Surely others must have witnessed this. Here is a still image and a video (shortened by UFO*BC):




28-Aug-2020, Chilliwack, BC:

I was out on my deck taking pictures of the moon when this object suddenly passed in front of me. My impression was: large, quiet, no noise, cigar-shaped, light front and back, no wings or wheels/ landing gear, no tail.  One light in front and one in the back, seemed to be one unit. I thought glider but no wings.

What  could it be?

[UFO*BC NOTE: Further information from the witness indicates the videos were taken in Chilliwack around 9:26 pm on August 28, facing south.]



3-Sep-2020, Langley, BC: (2:15 pm)

Hi there,

I wanted to send in 3 pictures of an object I saw in the middle of the day at about 215pm on September 3rd 2020. I live at 209 and 78B ave in Langley BC.

It was a clear day no clouds and I was on my rooftop patio enjoying the sun. I looking at the mountains in the north east when suddenly this white object appeared very high in the sky. This isn't the first time I have scene something strange in the sky at this address. 2 weeks before this I saw a silver object in the sky but it was too far for my camera on my phone to pick up.

At first I thought it might be a drone but it was just too high in the sky. The weird thing is that it just hovered in the sky for a good 10-12 min not moving, then started to come closer to me. It went right above me and then to the east, and finally just disappeared. I have a Samsung s20 and it has 30x zoom on it. I was able to catch 3 pictures at 30x zoom, which is max zoom. If you zoom in on it, It looks like a square box with some kind of white circular field around it. I am absolutely baffled at what it could be. Like I said it was really high in the sky definitely not a plane or a drone. I am very curious what you think it might be.

Thank you for your time. Cheers.

[UFO*BC NOTE: Pictures were almost identical - only 1 shown]

UFO*BC Responds:

Given the date range is similar (and they were in the area) this is likely what you caught:

One note, ensure you aren’t using digital zoom on your camera, as it isn’t gaining anything, but only cropping. You need to rely on the optical zoom.

Thanks!

Facing west when a light appeared in the sky, it moved quickly and erratically for a few seconds before vanishing. I reached for my phone and recorded the sky a bit north and the light appeared again, stayed stationary a moment before disappearing. Skylink comes through this area at this time but its not visible at 8:33, moves straight, and is never stationary.

4-Sep-2020, Surrey. BC: (5:30 pm)

To your knowledge did a large high altitude weather balloon drift over North Delta and Surrey, moving from west to east, this afternoon around 5:30 pm?

UFO*BC Responds:

I know that UBC does release them from time to time, so although it is possible, the timing is a bit late. Weather balloons are usually released early in the morning to get the thermals to allow to gain altitude, and by 5pm, they would be far past the lower mainland.

Witness Responds:

Thanks for your reply. My son and I went on the Internet and narrowed our sighting down to a Project Loon balloon at roughly 50,000 feet altitude.
I've flown thousands of hours and released weather balloons but this object had us stumped.
Project Loon is operated by Google and its parent company Alphabet.

5-Sep-2020, Horseshoe Bay, BC:

Was in Horseshoe Bay with my husband last weekend and took a few pictures of a ferry coming in to dock. When reviewing the pictures we found a strange object in one of the photos which was not noticed when the picture was taken. It is a black object to the left of the ferry, center of the picture. Seems too large to be a bird. Any idea what it could be?



UFO*BC Responds:

If you mean this object:

It is a crow, flying close to the camera, going from right to left. Both wings are in the downward position, head and beak are clearly visible to the left and tail on the right.

Or did you mean another part of the photo?

9-Sep-2020, Vancouver, BC:

41st and fraser st Vancouver bc I took a walk to the Chevron on main and 41st left my house at approximately 4:13am to return at about 4:35 am when I had noticed a bright light in the sky walking eastbound on 41st. this light was brighter than any thing else that had occupied the sky at this time which the ISS had just passed by us as well but this light was still brighter and seemed lower as well as 2closer than anything and there's no way it was a helicopter nor was it a plane. Upon arriving near my house I decided I wanted to get a better look at the object so me and my wife proceeded to head towards the memorial park on 41st and prince albert where we witnessed the object hovering as well reposition itself to stay with in our eyesight. No craft I know of would be able to maneuver like this thing had been able too as it moved in a lateral motion whilst maintain height in a strafe like motion. As soon as we seen the craft start to moved towards our direction which it was moving at a good paced we started to head back home but not before taking cover from this things line of vision which then it had moved higher to see over the trees and was once again in our view. Thinking that the craft was noticing us we took evasive action in order to break the line of sight just to see if it had been fallowing us or had been watching us . it stuck with us the whole way not once breaking the line of sight between us and them. It seemed to have either a sting of lights in a triangular or some sort of circular pattern surrounding the craft also there was not a sound at all coming for the object. I'm not sure what it had been but I can honestly say it was no plane nor helicopter and sure as hell was no drone. Someone must have gotten a look at this light as well and so I'm hoping you have the answer to what the hell this thing was or is.

9-Sep-2020, Victoria, BC:

Pretty sure saw a UFO in Victoria bc it was flying so fast changing colors sorry about the picture you can barley see it's like blue tho

UFO*BC Responds:

Thanks for the report, but we will need a bit more details to help clarify the report:
When did this happen?
Where in Victoria were you?
What direction were you facing?
What direction was the object/light moving?
What brought it to your initial attention?
What did the object do?
How long did the sighting last?

Thanks!

9-Sep-2020, Terrace, BC:

Strange big orangeish tinted light in the sky Northeast direction. I've been watching it for like 10-15 minutes now and it's moving in a slight hovering motion remaining in the same area. Its currently 11:45 pm September 9 2020. My boyfriend suggested that it may be a drone but it looks way too big and bright.. and the color of it doesn't seem drone-like to me.

UFO*BC Responds:

Thank-you for the report.

The first thing we like to check is if it could be a natural phenomena. Last night Capella was smack dab in the NE sky around the 11:45 mark, at the top left from the moon (see image below). Given that the object was remaining in the same area, I suspect you may have been looking at Capella as it is the 6th brightest star in our night sky. The orange look is almost certainly due to the smoke from the forest fires in the US (which is clouding up our skies here in Vancouver).

Hope this helps clear up the mystery and glad you can enjoy the lovely evening skies this time of year!

Thanks

10-Sep-2020, Lake Cowichan, BC:

Dear UFO BC,

I’m hoping you can explain what I saw twice yesterday. I visited Cowichan Lake Tube Shack on September 10, 2020. I entered the water on my tube at 4:47pm. Around 5:00pm I was just floating while looking up in the sky to the east I think and saw what appeared to be a hang glider way up high in a cloudless sky. It banked in a counter-clockwise fashion and then seemed to change into what looked like a falling blanket comprised of four petals. Then it seemed to fade away. Not sure if moved away at high speed, or disintegrated, or cloaked? It was yellow.

A few moments later, the same thing happen to the right of the first one, this time white.
If you hold your arms out up in the sky about a foot apart, that would be the visible distance way up in the sky, not sure how far that actually is. All this occurred at the max physical unaided viewable distance up in the sky.

Is this some sort of cloud reflection of water vapour appearing then disappearing on a hot day?

Thank you for being there, I was not sure who to ask about this.

UFO*BC Responds:

I honestly haven’t heard of that – it may have been some type of gliders, but I would think you’d see a parachute or similar system if it were dropping anything (as they could harm whomever they fell on).

I know that Google has been sending high altitude balloons over Vancouver in the last week or so, so perhaps that is what you managed to see?

I’ll keep digging and let you know if we come across any reasonable explanation to what you saw!

Thanks for the report.
