Today, Monday, August 18, 2003, I received a telephone
call from "Pat" who lives in Kelowna, British Columbia.
The lady was very upset and had a hard time speaking of
the event that took place with her and a close female
friend of hers. She told me today that a friend had
brought over a newspaper article from the Kelowna Capital
Newspaper. The headline read: "Seeking Witnesses to UFO."
The newspaper was dated August 15, 2003.
Here is her story:
At about 12:05 a.m., July 31, 2003 the two ladies were
playing around on the computer when "Linda" said, "We
haven't done any star gazing in a long time", so Pat (the
lady who contacted me) said, "You're right, lets go out
and do some star gazing". They left home at 12:05 a.m.
heading out to an area where they would get a look at the
clear night sky without having lights to obscure their
view. Pat drove to Glenmore which is north from where she
lives and is on the back road heading to Winfield from
They were driving along and Pat reported that there was
quite a bit of traffic for that time of the night but
after they decided to stop just off to the side of the
road to see what they might notice, the traffic stopped
coming. There was not a light from any vehicles, not
anything other than a very dark stretch of road. Pat
grabbed her flashlight and shone it into the sky as she
has done this in the past. Her friend Linda has the
binoculars on the other side of the car scanning the
starry night sky. They were there only a minute out of the
car when Linda said, "This is really strange. There are
three stars up in the sky and formed into a triangle
shape." All three lights at this time were solid white.
Both ladies watched as the three white lights started
moving, but moving together. The witness with the
binoculars said "Stars don't do that", and Pat replies,
"Of course not", as she thought it may have been a plane
or something. Linda replies, "No this is not a plane", as
the lights were changing color to a neon green and the
object had stopped and hovered just ahead of their car.
Pat turned the headlights off, and shone her flashlight
down the road in front of her car. They were worrying
about animals such as a bear, cougars, etc.. being around
in this isolated area. As she shone the light up the road
both of the women spotted something which frightened them
a lot. Five sets of eyes staring at about 40 feet away
from them. As frightened as they were, their first
thoughts were of coyotes or some other wild animal, but
she said once you really look your brain takes it in.
Pat describes the creatures as being roughly four feet
tall, dark gray shoulders and coming towards the women.
Pat said "I was so scared I could hardly talk and could
hardly breathe". She yelled to her friend Linda, "get in
the car, get in the car". Pat said they both scrambled to
get back into the vehicle but she said it was like moving
through quicksand and it felt horrible. Being so terrified
and trying to move as fast as they possibly could, it felt
as if everything was slowing down around them.
Once they were both back in the car, Pat tried to turn the
ignition on so she could get the power windows up. But all
the electrics on the car were failing. The dome light and
headlights were going off and on, by themselves, and as
she said, "Everything was going nuts" !
Finally the car started and they turned around in the
middle of the road and sped off towards home. As they
traveled along they noticed a fair bit of traffic coming
in their direction. (Pat commented to me, "Where was all
the traffic when all this was happening?") As they drove
along the road, Pat said to Linda, "This is the weirdest
thing. I feel like electricity, my whole body is tingling
just like I was zapped by a charge from a battery". When
Linda heard this, she said, "I didn't want to say anything
to you as you might think I was nuts, but I am feeling the
same. As if I was hit by an electrical charge." As Linda
was explaining how she felt, and facing Pat she glanced at
the clock in car and said, "Jesus Pat, look at the time" !
Pat said, "What are you talking about?" Linda said, "We
were only stopped and out of the car for a few minutes at
the most, and the time of the car's clock reads an extra
25 minutes of time."
As they drove along and close to home they both discussed
it and wondered if they had imagined it all. As they were
just about home, they turned onto Baker Street which is
covered in darkness next to a field. All of a sudden they
saw this bright, glowing neon green ball low in the sky.
The object started moving to the right, "stop", left,
"stop", right, "stop", left, "stop" and then it started to
move away until the ladies car came to a halt, and so did
the object. Before they knew it, the ball of green light
started heading towards them at a high rate of speed and
hovered high above their car. At this point they just
wanted to get to their home and be as far away from
whatever it was as possible.
The driver sped off quickly again and they headed into an
orchard which was very close by. They thought they would
not be seen hiding amongst the trees, plus there was no
lighting in this area to reveal their position. Pat looked
at her friend and said, "They will never find us here".
Both women are sitting in the car trying to get themselves
together as the driver said she was losing it at this
point. Only after a very short time after arriving in the
orchard Linda said, "Pat you better look out the front
windscreen and look up slightly. We don't have just one
green ball of light, there are now three, glowing green
objects." The way the green lights were in the sky, it
looked as if the they formed a triangle formation and all
moving together. After a short period of time each of the
green lights moved away in a different direction.
(HBCC UFO asked if the witness could give some idea of how
large the green lights were. The witness told me each of
the lights were about half the size of a full moon). After
seeing the lights flying off into different directions the
ladies raced home as quickly as they possibly could.
Once safe at home, both ladies shaken, they tried to come
up with some reasonable explanation for what just
happened. They tried to put it out of their minds but that
was impossible !!!!
Later on both ladies turned in for the night and when they
woke up in the morning, Pat discovered a large bruise on
her left breast and another on the bottom of her foot. She
did not know how they got there but she did know they were
As she sat drinking a cup of coffee Linda finally got up
and was walking down the hall towards the kitchen when she
said, "God, good morning - do I feel rough this morning".
After Linda finished saying that Pat watched as blood came
pouring from Linda's nose. Pat jumped up, ran and grabbed
a towel. Linda also commented that she was having a lot of
pain in her lower back area. She asked Pat to have a look
to see if there was anything that could be seen. So she
looked and gasped, there was a large circle burned into
her skin and was located in the middle, lower back area
(tail bone). Also bruises were found on Linda's body as
well, some of them appeared to look like finger marks and
there were three of them on each thigh. Both women at this
point were shocked, upset and very frightened.
Linda, who was up visiting from the Abbotsford area, ended
her holiday and headed back home. Two days after being
home in Abbotsford, B.C. she went to consult her family
doctor because of the terrible pain she was still
experiencing from her lower back. Her doctor examined her,
and the injury to her back. The doctor said, "If I didn't
know any better I would say you have a radiation burn." He
was of course referring to the burn mark on Linda's back.
The doctor is still trying to heal this mark on her back,
as something had burned right through the outer layer of
this lady's skin.
(HBCC UFO Note: I will be keeping in contact with
the witness to this event and hope I may be able to help
in some small way).
Update to this Story:
On the night this frightening experience took place,
another couple who couldn't sleep decided to go out for a
walk on the warm evening. They looked up at times into the
night sky, and all of a sudden they noticed a bright
glowing neon colored light. The couple also added that the
light was moving in the strangest way, by coming to a
complete stop, moving again, stopping and then moved off
very quickly. The light was seen in the same vicinity
where the ladies had been stopped at the side of the road.
This sounds like it gives confirmation to what the ladies
saw that night.
HBCC UFO Research Footnote: I would recommend to anyone
finding such marks, as described here in this report, to
consult a professional, such as their family doctor. One
has to remember that they do not have to walk in to the
doctor's office and make claims of missing time, or
possible abduction. Let your doctor come up with the
answers. Also, there are some very good people who carry
out work in the abduction field, and I will be very happy
to put you in contact with such folks if you would like.
Just write to me and request that I do so, and give me
permission to pass your personal information along.
I would also like to add, this Missing Time event took
place around the same date 147 witnesses watched one
amazing event unfold in southeastern British Columbia. I
also received a flood of sighting reports which also came
from this area. July 27/28 to August 18, 2003.
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to write me
