A friend who is in his late 70s told me this story
today. He said that when he was 10 or 11 years old, he and two friends (now deceased) were
playing in the bush in Confederation Park in Burnaby, that would make it the summer of
1937 or 1938. He said he and his friends heard a roaring sound and he ran out of the trees
to Willingdon Avenue and saw two streaks of smoke in the sky coming from the east parallel
to the ground and at a fairly low altitude. As the smoke trails got closer he saw two
round balls of fire at the head of the trails. Suddenly the two fireballs roared like a
rocket straight up at a ninety degree angle and disappeared into a clear blue sky. He said
that today he would compare them to jets, but of course there were no jets back then. He
still remembers the incident even after the amount of time that has transpired.
Thank you to the person for relating the sighting to
Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research.
