SIGHTING REPORTS FROM 2014
September 9th, 2019
2014, Terrace, BC: (daytime)
single large disc shape sat still in the blue sky beside
a hill as if it was peering around it with I think 3-4
witnesses ..... moved left slow then
right then left and as it moved left it had lit up fully
Vancouver, BC: (5:45 pm)
(last night) I was going to the garbage and happened to
notice the crescent moon as it was a clear and starry
night. To the right of the moon was a red-orange circle
which I thought was a star, maybe Jupiter. This
red-orange circle was a bit big for a star though. This
circle of orange-red had on either side of it these
strands that fanned out, they were also roughly the same
colour. I thought it might be a helicopter because it
didn't move as I watched it. As I was in a hurry to go
somewhere so I stopped watching for a few seconds and
when I looked up again the circle of red-orange was now
without the tendrils/strands that were previously coming
off the left and right side of the red-orange circle,
and, the circle had moved over further to the
right of the Moon or further west, it
had also gotten smaller in diameter. I began
walking towards the garage and I noticed the circle was
constricting and within a matter of seconds was gone.
returned home later that evening I went online to
see if any local news had reported a weird
sighting. I live roughly in the vicinity of South
Cambie and this past summer some model aviation club had
staged a "ufo" over the field at Nat Bailey Stadium
during a baseball game. Anyways, there was no news of a
ufo sighting over Vancouver that night at all. I'd be
interested to hear your response.
Victoria, BC: (9:45 am)
the front driveway of the BC Legislature, we observed a
yellow light towards the north over the city. The light
was traveling south towards us. As it approached, it
appeared to slow its speed. It went over the inner
harbor and over us. It appeared to be a ball of fire
about the size of a small airplane, and there was no
sound. The object continued south over the parliament
building and climbed higher in the sky. At that point,
it accelerated its speed as it climbed and very quickly
became a small dot and disappeared. It was about 1000
feet above us.
we did not get a picture.
Pitt Lake, BC: (10 pm to 12 pm)
to a friend's house after a dinner party around 10 pm
and I noticed a large flash off in the distance. Now
when I say off in the distance I mean probably close to
20/30 kms away. I was in Surrey and could tell that it
was coming from behind the mountains near Coquitlam (as
it illuminated the outline of said mountain). It looked
as though it was just a huge flash (think lightning)
that lit up everything in the night sky around it. Now
that would be all fine and dandy if it was just the
single flash. But I continued to watch the area and
within 30 seconds or so we saw another flash, then
another, and another. It continued like this at varying
intervals.. sometimes as quick as 5 seconds other times
within two minutes. My friends all went inside the house
as it didn't interest them like it did me (but they did
see it.) I convinced my girlfriend to track the source
down with me, so we start driving. Tracking it in the
sky was easy, just watch the general direction and the
entire sky was lighting up. We headed down all the roads
we could until we came to an end at Pitt Lake where we
couldn't take roads any farther as they had the parking
area gated off. It was closer to 11:30 pm now. There
were alot of people parked inside so I'm assuming at
least some other people must of seen it. Anyways as we
got closer the sky was still being illuminated but we
could see less of the flash as we were now pretty close
to the base of the mountain which it was behind. The
intensity of this was like nothing I have seen besides
lightning and there was no sound so fireworks were not
likely. Also lasting over 2 hours before we finally gave
up and headed home, watching the inside of the car light
up with each flash coming from behind us. I have some
pretty crude video of it happening taken from Surrey so
you can see the distance at which I was viewing it from.
If anyone knows about what this might of been it would
really put my mind at rest.
Some other info. It never moved or changed location, It
was always behind the mountain just north of the parking
lot at Pitt Lake. The flashes also sort of varied from a
white lightning style to a redish/orange fire hue.
Intensity varied as well, from just enough to outline
the mountain to the whole sky being lit up in that area.
If this is not the correct site to post this too as it
doesn't exactly pertain to an UFO sighting I will
understand. I am really interested to find a solution.
Roosville, BC: (9:00 pm)
for the Highways (mainroad east kootenay), while
patrolling southbound last night on Hwy #93 near the
U.S.A. Border at Roosville, "Marty" who was driving says
"WTF is THAT" ? I looked up and saw it as well. It was a
very large upside down triangular shaped thing from the
lights sort of defining it's shape.
a couple of hundred yards (300) away I guess? It was
BIG... I think maybe 60-80-100 feet across the top and
tapered down to 30-40-50 at the bottom, but again tough
on the EXACT distance? It was very low, maybe 100 ft off
the ground ahead of us, just above the treeline,
stationary, or moving towards us? I couldn't tell by no
side to side movement for 7-8 seconds, then just tilted
on it's side and moved behind an outcrop of trees on a
berm out from an escarpment. We continued down the
highway towards it expecting to see it again because it
was only 30-45 seconds to get there.... nada, GONE,
I dunno WTF it was? I mean this wasn't a "twinkle" in
the distant sky here. It was BIG with defined lights.
Nor it seems, can the 2 of us now later, agree on a few
things. I remember yellowish lights at bottom moving up
to greenish and red/blue at top. Marty says no they were
more clear, he doesn't think colored, if at all. I was
washing trucks earlier, got grease on my glasses which I
cleaned, but maybe I had some residue on them which made
the light "prism" ??
we both saw it. It was big, it was hovering (or moving
towards us), it was not an airplane (no airplane THAT
low, or slow, in pitch black darkness). Helicopter of
some kind? Maybe if it had huge infrastructure to mount
light rows? No noise, again THAT low in complete
darkness, and the lights didn't have "beams" per se,
more just "luminescent" if I am spelling it right. And
if it was some kind of tricked up Heli.... where in the
heck did it go THAT fast? I mean it would have had to
have risen above 200 ft to go over an escarpment behind
those trees... which we should have see as we travelled
towards it. We almost don't believe what we saw. But we
both know we saw it.
up the nerve to go into the CBSA Border office at the
Roosville crossing around 9:30 pm just after, the field
behind the trees where it disappeared is right across
the #93 from them.... to ask if they saw anything. I
guess we sounded like babbling Idiots. They saw nothing,
but weren't looking outside from their lit up building
either. They have no surveillance cameras either... so
nothing there either.
am 56 years old, Marty is 37. For my part... being as
set in my ways, and "comfortable" with the way things
are in the World, and what I accept as "real".... pretty
disturbing, and I don't wanna discuss it in future. I'll
go with whatever Marty wants to say about this. My name
Tsawwassen, BC: (9:17 pm)
and I were driving in my car, coming home to my
townhouse and her condo from having dinner up the street
in Tsawwassen. I turned into an apartment complex as a
short cut to drive my friend home (she lives in our
condo complex attached to the town houses, just down the
road from this intersection) and as we were driving down
the side road, in front of us and up in the sky we saw
two amber coloured, floating, seemingly round objects.
They were rising gradually and several seconds later,
faded in and out slightly, and at different rates as
they rose. I got out of the car to take an iphone photo
and got one or two shots. Then a neighbour's car drove
past us and I pointed up. After the car passed us and
went into their underground parkade, the two orbs simply
faded out and disappeared. Then about 10 seconds after
they disappeared, two MORE came rising up from the left
of the horizon (tree tops) at a faster rate shooting to
the right, upward on a approximately 60 degree angle!
They slowed down their acceleration, then hovered
slowly, still slightly accelerating, then eventually
also faded away and disappeared! One was always higher
than the other. In one photo, if you magnify it, you can
see a white glowing disc, with some sort of amber/pink
energy coming out of the back of it and just below it at
the back another small object separate from. Small, like
a smaller ship, cloaked in the pink/amber colour!
Burnaby, BC: (7:10 am)
7:10 am in the morning, it was slightly foggy out and I
had just turned down Wayburne drive in Burnaby when I
noticed 5 lights in a V formation under the moon. The
lower light on the right side was blinking. I did a
double take, because I know there are no buildings or
mountains over there. I drive this route nearly every
day and have never seen any lights there before. At
first I thought it was the stars, but when I looked
around I realized it was too bright for stars, and these
lights were as big, if not bigger than the brightest
star in the sky. Then I thought maybe it was planes
doing a formation, but none of them were moving.
mind I was only able to see them for maybe 10 seconds
before I had to turn behind trees and park my vehicle.
Maybe 15 seconds passed while I parked. I ran back to
the road to see if I could figure out what the lights
were, but I couldn’t see them anymore. I thought maybe
they were just blocked by the trees, so I walked down
the road, but I still couldn’t see anything anywhere in
the sky. There were no stars out, as the sun was rising.
And there was no way they could have just disappeared
that quickly from sight. Especially being that large and
not moving to begin with.
sure what those lights were, but I can’t seem to come up
with a logical explanation. If anyone else saw these
lights, or has any information on what they could be,
I’d be very interested in knowing more.
neighbour and I went to the gas station as a late night
walk one night and on the way back we noticed a super
bright, what we thought was a star. But after
looking a little harder to try and figure out if it was
just the space station or not we both saw it with
various colors of flashing lights coming from it. We
kept our eyes on it the entire walk home and once we
were home we stood in the back yard were it was darker
and watched this thing for a really long time.
were amazed as it seemed to get closer and we were
asking each other every time it moved, "did you see
that?". Then we started to see there were three more.
They were at the south, north, and east points of a
compass and they were all blinking brightly. We couldn't
take our eyes off them. Then as it got even closer we
could see the outline of something that was incredibly
huge. The lights that were changing all the time were
showing the underside of this thing and we couldn't
believe our eyes. It looked like this thing was rolling
in every direction as it was looking for something. The
lights would change from red to blue to white sometimes
purple but we saw a lot of green. After some time it
started to move further away, what looked like higher up
and I had to follow it so I took off across the street
and into the park that was pitch black and when I got
into the dark I turned around and my upstairs neighbour
had turned around and gone home, but I continued into
the dark. I watched it till it got to high for me to see
anymore. But I could see the other three had moved
right along with it till I could hardly see them too.
so glad that we were together cause we didn't think
anyone would believe this story. But the two of us
really did see what we were telling people and people
were looking up things on the internet to try and
explain it but both of us just kept saying, "nope, not
like that" or "it was way bigger than that!".
next night we went out again but it was too cold for my
neighbour to stay outside with me so I put on a big coat
and sat on the outside stairs and looked up. It was
there again but up really high. I ran in and grabbed my
iPad but it couldn't pick it up, it was too far away in
the dark. I sat outside with iPad in hand and waited for
a really long time to try to catch this thing but after
it got really too cold for me I had to come in. But let
me tell you, it sure has me watching the skies now.
While we were walking back from the gas station we even
stopped people on the sidewalk and asked them if they
knew what that "thing" might be and because it was
flashing blue and red people were suggesting it was the
police helicopter. But it was just hovering and there
was no noise coming from it. It's something I will never
forget. It was incredible.
your eyes to the skies. You never know what you will see
North Vancouver, BC: (about 9:30 - 9:37 pm)
was leaving my boyfriend's house at approximately 9:30
p.m. on January 25th 2014. His house is located at the
top of Fromme mountain in North Vancouver British
Columbia. From his house there is amazing view of the
city of Vancouver, and Burnaby. As I was leaving I
noticed a bright light over the City of Vancouver. It is
not uncommon to see planes coming to and from YVR
airport, but I knew this was different. The night before
we were looking at stars, and noticed a very bright one
in the sky. At first I thought that this light might be
the same star, but I quickly realized it was not.
Normally, planes that are going into the airport are
moving quite quickly, but this light was not moving at
all. It seemed as though it was flashing every once and
awhile. I watched this light for approximately 5 minutes
and it did not move at all. I know it was not the same
star as the previous night, as it was lower in the sky
and much brighter. At 9:35 p.m., I took a picture of
this bright light over the city. Soon after, its flashed
one more time and then disappeared. I am certain it is
not a plane as it did not move for approximately 7
minutes. I know that it was not a star, as it
disappeared while I was looking on at it. My pictures
are not extremely clear, they are quite dark, but they
easily show a very bright light over the city. If you
would like, I would be happy to send them to you, along
with a comparison of the skyline without it. I was
wondering if you got any other reports similar to mine.
Roberts Creek, BC: (6:00 am)
am (it was dark) I let my dog out to pee and I saw a
bright large object traveling from north to east. It was
traveling very fast, faster than the jet I also saw with
blinking lights, and jet sounds, going south east to
north. The bright object had no noise and it was
closer to me, and lower, than the flight of the plane. The
object had no plane lights, it was just incredibly bright.
Perhaps the crew of the plane saw it. Also the plane would
have left Vancouver vga airport. I live in Roberts Creek,
or 30 or 31-Jan-2014, Halfmoon Bay, BC:
live in Halfmoon Bay, BC area just up from Sargeants Bay
Provincial Park. Our house is about 1/2 km from and
faces SE to the Malaspina Straight to Nanaimo. We do not
have an ocean view but do have a view of the horizon
through our trees from about 1/6th the way up the
horizon from the ocean through the equatorial to polar
north. The Malaspina has been the location of many
strange sightings over the decades and I keep an eye out
for activities over the straight. Most often it is just
low and high level air traffic and sea level marine
traffic. You can sometimes see through the trees the
mast lights of passing ships. However this night around
11PM I was on the back deck considering some night sky
photography when I saw a pulsing orange, yellow and red
light directly over the straight and clear to my line of
sight through a break in the trees. I assumed it was a
helicopter or perhaps an SAR aircraft so I dismissed it
in my mind and went back in. I knew it could not be
float plane traffic from Nanaimo as they are VFR. I came
out again in about 5 minutes and to my surprise the
light was still there holding steady. I am a former Air
Traffic Controller from the RCAF way, way back so I
understand the mechanics of aircraft movement in the sky
and this light in no way corresponded to that. It had no
characteristics of a flare nor any moving aircraft and
it was too high to be a boat mast light (too bright and
wrong colours). I watched it for another two or three
minutes and then it just popped out of existence. It did
not move vertically or laterally. It was there one
moment then not. I'm curious if anyone else saw this
especially those who live on the waterfront with
unimpeded sight lines.
for the sighting report.
must say, given your credentials, as a witness you are
an investigator's dream!
circumstances and given the date, I would first think of
a Chinese Lantern, celebrating the New Year (on the 31st
Jan) similar to this:
although the stationary appearance of the object may
fit, the colour/illumination change does not quite fit.
there any discernable pattern in the colour of the
object? What intensity was the light?
angular degree from the horizon was the object and if
you had to estimate at what altitude/distance from you?
look forward to hearing from you, and again, thanks for
the reply. Given the distance to object from my vantage
point, the size perspective and the lack of drift or
wobble on any axis, in my opinion, it's hard to accept
it was anything drifting in the air. I cannot give a
size reference as I have no terrain reference to do
this. However the object was about the size of a weather
balloon viewed from about 2-3 km distant. There
was a moderate breeze but the object was absolutely
stationary. There was no flicker. Its dominant colour
was red to orange/yellow diffused across the object.
From my perspective it seemed to hover closer inshore to
the Sunshine Coast side of the Straight. This means that
the object had to be at least 30-40 m+ in the air
given the angular mechanics of my location to the
Straight. Other sightings of lights I have seen that
were boat masts would place them mid channel on the
Straight perhaps 5-8kms from the Sunshine Coast side and
those mast lights were very small, red and green. I
would not be able to see them otherwise. I look down
slope at a moderate angle and the focal point of my view
is mid-channel. In any event this object acted in a
manner inconsistent with any object I have seen in the
air. Perhaps its mechanics were more a matter of
perspective from my vantage point than actuality.
Vancouver, BC: (7:00 pm)
have a friend who has seen many sightings and he called
us today Jan 30 2014 around 7:00 pm that there was
something in the sky that was not a star because of the
size and the light it was giving off. My dad came home
from work and said he too saw it and brought out his
binoculars. From what I saw at 12:20 ish it was a bright
light that was shooting out light in a perfect star
formation. But brighter than any other in the sky. When
I looked through the binoculars I saw a structure that
was showing light off the side that went red, yellow
then green on the outside. It's been in the sky for
hours and hasn't moved. I can't get any picture to focus
on what the human eye can see. There were also three
symmetrical green lights a bit away from it.
love to hear any information about this.
Pritchard, BC: (10:38 pm)
around 10:38 pm, I was outside looking at the night sky
when an object caught my eye. At first I dismissed it as a
satellite, but I soon realised it did not seem to be one.
I was looking to the South and the object was flying from
the East to the West, about 1/4 of the way up off the
horizon. The object was brighter than most of the stars in
the sky, but not the brightest. (very bright though). It's
speed was amazing. It crossed the whole sky from East to
West in roughly 20-25 seconds.
do spend quite a lot of time outside, at night, when the
sky is clear looking and learning the constellations; so
the night sky is not unfamiliar to me. If this had been a
plane, I would of noticed the blinking lights that are
associated with planes. As well, regarding the speed at
which the object crossed the sky, if it had been a plane
the plane would of had to of been relatively close to my
position and I would of heard the engine noise.
have watched and spotted many satellites over the years,
but the position and brightness of the object did not
correspond to any I have ever seen prior. The path of the
object was more of a straight line than a "curve" that
would be associated with a satellite traveling at the
height above the horizon as stated. It was not the ISS,
because of the direction of travel. The ISS travels in the
Thanks for the opportunity to pass this information on. If
at all possible could you reply to me with any other
sightings in the area or time frame. Thank-You.
for the report.
speed in question, it is certainly not a celestial object,
nor a meteor. So it would need to be some type of object
(plane, satellite or other). Was there anything that
completely removed all possibility that it was a common
satellite? Unfortunately there isn't going to be an easy
way to identify what it could have been.
keep digging and try to track down what was in the night
sky in your
area during that time. Try poking your head out again
tonight (if it isn't too cold) and see if you can see it
again (give or take some time).
- you Richard for the response to my e-mail.
your question regarding it being a satellite... 100%
positive.; unfortunately the answer would have to be no.
(with a BUT...) From time to time I have been witness to
very bright satellites that pass over head; I believe them
to be labelled as "Near Earth Orbits". As I recall
during these sightings, the satellites start out dim then
as the continue their pass across the night sky they
increase in brightness, then as their path continues, they
again fade. The sightings of this type of satellite, that
I have witnessed usually occur closer to sun set and or
sunrise; when they catch the suns rays. As well, these
satellites do travel quit fast across the sky; as I am to
understand because of their relative low orbit path. The
object I witnessed had a constant intensity to it for it's
entire journey. All in all, it may have been an satellite,
as new ones are added constantly.
assured, I will be looking again, and not just because of
this incident. There is much to see and witness in the
very much for your time. Keep up the Good work that you
are doing. It will pay off in a big way someday.
West Vancouver, BC:
(5:15 - 5:30 am)
live at one of the highest points in the British
Properties, West Vancouver. My bedroom window faces south
with a grand view of Lions Gate Bridge, Stanley Park,
Vancouver city and the lower mainland. I sleep on my bed
facing west. I was asleep on my body's left side, facing
Between 5:15 and 5:30 am, I had woken up to my cat's claws
on my back, as he was trembling with fright, hiding next
to my back under the blanket. Just half a second after I
had woken up, a very bright white light shone outside
through my bedroom window. It lit the whole room so
bright, that the light was coming through my blanket. I
was paralyzed in fear; so was my cat. I kept my eyes
closed, but the bright lights went through my eyelids as
if they had been open or made transparent.
The object emitting the light was hovering silently
outside my window. And it was hovering slowly upwards. The
light felt intelligent as if searching or scanning the
room. I had this terrible sensation that it was reading
me. I laid still in paralysis. After 60 seconds or so, the
light turned off, and it was gone in a flash. I felt a
strange sensation that the light was emitted from a huge
flying object. The object had vague appearances about it.
As soon as whatever it was went away, the cat and I were
suddenly 'released' from our paralysis. The cat took off
and hid under my bed, and I immediately got out of bed and
looked outside the window. I had been awake since then.
Couldn't go back to sleep.
the report. Very interesting that your cat seemed affected
by it as well. Was there any accompanying sound that
preceded the light? You mention the light itself was
silent, just wondering if there was something beforehand
that may have awoken you out of your sleep?
a few thoughts:
mention your bedroom faces south, that is directly in-line
with YVR - could it possibly be an airplane's landing
lights that you caught in a holding pattern?
a plane circling around to land in Vancouver Harbor
possible explanation was that of a police helicopter with
a searchlight on it.
would help if we could get a picture from your bedroom
window to see exactly what you would see on a 'regular
for the report!
South Surrey, BC: (7:30 pm)
was outside having a smoke when I saw a strange object
hovering well over our pond. At first I thought it was a
plane but it was far too close and it was not moving. It
had blue and red lights on each side of the strange U
shaped cylinder with white lights in the middle. It slowly
shifted to the left and got even closer to me. I felt
something very strange so I ran inside of my house. As I
looked out the window from inside it quickly jolted right
and went out of my sight. I have never seen anything like
the report! How large was this object, and how far from
you? Was there any associated sound with the object? Any
chance you can draw us a picture for us (and include what
you think the relative dimensions were) and send it to us?
and 13-Feb2014, Kelowna, BC:
PM on Feb 10th my wife and I were heading out of the
house for dinner and the moon that night was massive and
bright; illuminating the snow covered ground in white
light. My wife looked up and asked me if that was a
plane. Moving ever so slowly towards the moon at an
incredible height was a large "round" object projecting
an incredibly intense pure white light from its
underside. We stood in the freezing cold and watched it
move south west across the sky until it stopped and just
hovered. I cannot impress enough how high, bright and
large this object was. I ran and got our binoculars and
there it was, a massive flat rotating disc; colored
lights on the underside and brilliant white lights
surrounding the disc. We watched as it hovered, moved
from side to side and in a split second; lit up with
bright intense multicolored lights and disappeared
up and west at a very high rate of speed. On our way to
dinner we discussed at length what we had seen; not too
sure how to explain it or whether or not we should
discuss our sightings with others.
This morning; Feb 13th at about 6 AM my wife once again
asked me if what she was looking at was an airplane. I
went to our dining room window and just like last
Monday; an extremely large white light was moving ever
so slowly across the sky in the exact same location as
we had seen it before. Judy grabbed our camera, changed
to the telephoto lens while I went for the binoculars.
This time our sighting lasted for a full hour and (we
live in a cul-de-sac) one at a time our neighbors
came out, binoculars in hand as perplexed as we were. A
massive structure, surrounded with (alternating) 4 to 8
bright white lights around its circumference with the
underside showing hundreds of symmetrical smaller white
lights in a balanced and equal pattern. The object went
from being a giant white orb to a flat disc; hovering
and moving on what would be considered a fixed pivot
point. We shot some amazing pictures (still in the
camera but I will load them into my PC later tonight).
We watched in amazement as a smaller white orb
"appeared" out of nowhere and hovered beside the larger
object for about 20 minutes. It was now getting late for
me as I needed to get ready for work but my wife
continued to observe and call out to me the (now 2)
objects activity. Over the course of another 1/2 hour;
the smaller object seemed to disappear either inside or
attached itself to the larger object at which time it
slowly started to rise and then with a more rapid rate
of ascent, simply disappeared. The added "mystery" to
this sighting was its apparent desire to be seen and
noticed. This morning the sky was very clear with the
exception of a small gathering of gray semi transparent
clouds. The object went out of its way to move slowly
between the spaces of the aforementioned clouds each and
every time it was about to be covered by the clouds. I
am still digesting what we saw but am extremely anxious
to get the pictures into my PC and see more closely what
we have captured.
for your report.
would certainly love to see any photos you have of the
object! How big was it in contrast to the full moon? In
the meantime if you cannot get a photo to us right away,
could you kindly draw what you saw on both dates?
love to speak with your neighbors as well - if you
wouldn't mind passing on our contact details to them
(website or email) that would be great!.
forward to hearing from you! Talk to you soon,
PS - When emailing
the photos, please try to send the original unedited
uncompressed files as directly from the camera - that was
we can do some work on the images themselves, whereas the
data would be lost as soon as it was altered in any way.
- I understand if you do not wish to divulge your
address to us, however if you could give us an
approximation (for Google maps) as well as the direction
you were facing at the time, we can start our analysis.
Kelowna, BC: (5 am)
was reading the sighting that happened in Kelowna and I
too saw that light. I woke up at 5 and went on the deck
for a smoke when I saw the bright light. It stayed
stationary for over an hour then slowly moved further
across the sky. I saw it above east Kelowna. I got my
binoculars out it was oval with red. I took some videos on
my IPhone and they didn't work out, I phoned my sister and
she too saw it. I watched It through my binoculars the
whole time. I took still photos with my camera I need to
check them. It was so bright I could see the stars around
it clearly. As the sun came up the light stayed there I
have pictures with no stars in sky and daylight with this
light on my phone, hovering by the few grey clouds in th
sky. It was so weird I'm glad it wasn't just me who saw
it. I watched the sky the next night and it wasn't there.
I have never seen a light that bright stay in one spot. I
knew if I didn't take pictures no one woud believe me.
West Kelowna, BC: (5:30 to 7 am)
too saw the exact same description as a previous
slighter commented on. I was on my way to the gym early
in the morning and up in the sky I saw what I assumed
was an airplane. After my 1 hr work out the light was in
the same place. I received a text from my sister
that moment and she was asking me if I was seeing what
she was. I pulled over and took a really good look
and I swear I saw a large circular disk surrounded by
mini white lights. The little white lights were
not as big or bright as the "orb" that seemed to be just
below the massive disk. The brilliant light seemed
to be moving a little around the larger disk. The
disk was still there at 7:00 am. It was definitely
closer to earth thank star and I also noticed the grey
clouds around the disk as the sky was completely clear
and I thought it odd. Didn't report it as it was
so huge and no one else seemed to notice it. Then I
noticed the report here, thanks I am not imagining
Duncan, BC: (11:28 am)
small metallic objects. 1 flew in front of the
other. The object in front flew side to side and up one
time slowed down almost to a complete stop and then
disappeared within seconds the secound object
disappeared. I only observe them for about 20 or
you for the report.
you say small objects - how big were they? Small
relative to what?
also mentioned flew - where were they flying -
direction, speed height?
sound associated with them?
Victoria, BC: (about 1:45 am)
guys went outside for a smoke after a night of poker. They
called us out and we saw 3 orange lights moving slowly
through the ski, faded into the clouds after about about 2
minutes. One of the guys got some video on his phone I can
get that if needed.
for sending us the report.
lights in any particular formation/pattern? Also which
direction were they travelling and how fast (compare it to
an airplane, hot air balloon etc). Also how big were the
lights? I'd very much like to see the video!
They formed a triangle pattern moving west mostly, slower
then a plane, moved slow at first then sped up. Size would
be a guess, had nothing to reference for altitude and
distance. Probably a foot or 2 in diameter lights with the
triangle maybe 40 feet from point to point. Was lower when
we went out, went up into the clouds.
will forward a copy of the video once I get it from Alex.
He is a friend of the guy who was hosting the poker party.
I don't know him directly.
South Vancouver, BC: (6:30 pm)
strange bright reddish/purple light while I was driving
home after work tonight. Got home and onto my
balcony as quickly as possible to get a better look.
Took some pictures with my iphone and ipad. I also
got a look at it with binoculars and I just don't know how
to even describe it. All I can say is that it was a
huge object, with lights of many colours, but mostly red
and sort of purple, blinking and pulsating. What I
saw through my binoculars were lights shooting out from
this object in an upward/outward motion, almost like
wings, but they were definitely lights. This isn't a
good description, but I really don't know how to describe
it. Did anyone else see it? It was huge, well
under the clouds, very slow moving (I followed it the
whole time I drove home, once I got to South Vancouver
from downtown) and when I got to my balcony, there was
absolutely no sound. Please tell me someone else saw
this. It was amazing! It was moving east to
west in South Vancouver. It was right above my
house! Somebody else had to have seen this thing.
Surrey, BC: (6:55 pm)
saw 2 purple reddish blinking lights parallel to each
other going north/ northwest similar to what was described
by the feb. 20/14 sighting. Luckily I had my glasses on, I
saw what looked like a force field that was surrounding
the blinking light and it also was going in an upward
motion but was constantly around the light. I thought it
was a satellite or a plane but it was super high and it
kinda did a zig zag and then just disappeared.
live in Victoria on Vancouver Island and my house has a
fair view of the night sky, from south to north facing
west. A few nights now, not in a row, I have seen what
appears to be a star at first glance however, after closer
observation, this star does apperar to have blinking red
and blue or green lights. It stays in the same general
area but moves in rather a sudden and awkward, slight left
to right movements that make u think "is it me. Or is that
thing moving?" It is hovering and has no obvious
engine noise. It looks to me that whatever it is, it's
either trying very hard as a ET ufo to blend in as a star
in our night sky, or someone who is operating it as a
drone had a very shakey hand. I cant seem to find what im
looking at when searching drones so I was hoping u could
help decipher the difference.
is relatively stationary in the sky, it is probably a
star. The flashing colors is quite common and is caused
by atmospheric scintillation - which is caused by
fluctuations in the density of air in the atmosphere.
The movement is probably just the apparent perceived
motion that sometimes happens when looking at a star or
other stationary object in the night sky.
get many, many similar reports and the first time I
noticed one in the evening sky I also wondered if it was
maybe a "hovering craft".
Lone Butte, BC: (00:10 am)
out our kitchen window which faces south I noticed
something very bright in the sky which at first I thought
was a star. I turned off the light over the dining table
to eliminate glare or reflection. My husband had just gone
to bed so I asked him if we had any binoculars in the
house, he said no, followed by why? I said oh nothing I
just wanted to look at something. I went back to the
kitchen window and it was still there. We live in a rural
area, without street lamps and at this time the sky was
cloud free. There are tall spruce trees on the property
across the road, about forty feet tall and they are
situated about 150 feet from the kitchen window I was
looking through. This object was about 6 - 8 inches above
these trees, but in the distance. I could tell that
it was rotating, as there were both yellowish gold lights
and green lights, and as it spun it was as if the light
was thrown to the side of the object which seemed to form
rings similiar to the rings of Saturn [ which is the only
way I can describe it]. It would throw these rings first
with gold to the right, then green to the left, then the
colors would reverse.
remained in one spot. I do have a small digital camera,
but night pictures don't turn out very well, so I didn't
bother getting it. I watched it for about 7 minutes, then
I decided to go out on the porch and see if I could get a
better view. It was still there, so I watched it as it
rotated with the two colors for another 5 minutes. Being
that it is minus 8 C. tonight and I had hurried out
without a coat, I came back inside to continue my watch
from the kitchen window. Unfortunately when I got back to
the window, it was gone!
just wondered if anyone else had seen it. The shape? I
don't really know, but I would assume it was circular by
the half circle rings of light that were thrown as it
Vancouver, BC: (11:30 pm)
have a video link that I shot with my iPhone. It was
really strange. At first, before I started filming,
there were 6 lights, moving through the sky in a V
formation. Then, one by one, they seemed to move farther
away - and disappeared. I kept filming and more joined.
Did anyone else see this? Here's the link: http://youtu.be/y8nd9g2FGnQ
Vancouver, BC: (about 11:30 pm)
friend and I were walking West along King Edward Avenue,
on the North Side heading back to said friend's house we
both saw what looked like 3 orange/red orbs above Queen
seemed two of the orbs were moving and one was
stationary above the other two. I would estimate the
altitude was no more than 500 meters above Queen
Elizabeth Park. As well, I would estimate the position
of these objects to be slightly West and North of the
Bloedel Floral Conservatory in QE Park when viewed from
a map above.
we were intrigued and my Friend suggested that they
could be lights on a construction crane. However, there
are no construction cranes in the park. As well, I did
not see any outline of any crane or other structure
around or in between the orbs.
south along a street to get a closer look at the orbs
and we were startled by a dog in somebody's yard that
seemed very aggressive towards us. Perhaps it was aware
of the orbs too, perhaps not. After walking closer to
Nat Bailey Stadium overlooking the northern face of the
park, we got a better look at the orbs.
two were left, and they were orange/red or amber orbs of
light, with the light being uniformly distributed along
the body of the orb. I did not suspect that they were
Chinese lanterns, as the light they emitted was uniform
and unflickering, and one orb was stationary while the
other was moving around it. As well, they made no noise
as they hovered above the park.
the orbs for maybe 6 more minutes, the two orbs
gradually shrunk into pinpoints and then disappeared
altogether. Very strange indeed.
Mission, BC: (7 pm)
was driving me home tonight and as we were talking a HUGE
flash of amber light appeared over the Fraser River, only
a couple hundred feet up. The entire sky lit up but a very
clear orb was the source. It must have been at least the
width of the river. There was no fore-warning, or any sign
of anything after the fact. The weather is rainy, foggy
and generally miserable, but when this flashed it was
bright as day. This is the second ufo I have seen/reported
since December (the first was Dec 11th, scroll up to see).
Both were basically along the Fraser River. This was
nothing like the first sighting I had - many times bigger.
If I were to hold my arm out the object would have been 2x
the size of my fist, at a 20-30 degree angle from the
ground. There are no air traffic buoyies over that part of
the river or any warning lights that could have burnt out.
There should have been nothing there at all.
Mission, BC: (7 pm)
was sitting in my livingroom talking with my husband when
I saw the night sky light up like it was daylight. From
where my home is up high in the mountain I saw a HUGE
STRIP along the horizon (could have been anywhere from the
Fraser river as far as Abbotsford) but it was so bright
and flashed for only a few seconds and then went back to
being the night sky. My husband had his back to the window
and the view was just over his shoulder or I would have
missed it. I was in amazement and shock trying to describe
what I had seen. It wasn't anything small - it looked like
a strip of the entire horizon had lit up. I didn't see
anything hovering or a UFO but I read that someone else
had seen something over the fraser river. It was so
crazy to see the black sky go bright blue for that second.
I'm wondering if anyone else saw anything that night.
Sooke, BC: (00:28 am)
is in the sky in relatively the same spot on several
occasions. Very large bright multi coloured "star" like
object which continuously moves slowly up and down or side
to side. It emits a greenish light that changes colours
quite frequently. I've tried to capture the image on my
phone but wasn't really successful. Have to see it to
fully understand. I've showed my room mate who was too
afraid to be outside after I pointed it out. Not like any
star or planet I have ever seen before. Am located by the
17 mile house in Sooke bc and can see the object directly
in front of me when I am looking towards Sooke direction
in the horizon. Creepy as hell.
Mission, BC: (10:55 pm)
would like to report a strange orange/amber light in the
sky to the north. The light was very bright and appeared
to be about 100 feet above the roof tops of 7th Avenue in
Mission, BC. I saw it from my back yard on 5th Avenue. The
light got brighter and dimmed out until it just vanished
without a trace. At first I thought it was a meteor or
something and then noticed it didn't appear to be moving.
I have reported the same light a few years ago. It was
very strange the whole observation lasted about 2 minutes
and it went from being very light to gone in the time. I
heard no noise or anything that would indicate a plane or
helicopter. I would suggest it was not flare as I didn't
seem to drop down in an arc or move at all.
would like to hear some explanation if you have one.

observation sounds like a Chinese lantern. Are you not
aware of them?
are paper lanterns that use a candle to heat the
internal air making the lantern rise.
candle also provides illumination. The lanterns will
sometimes flicker before they burn out.
sorts of sightings are quite numerous and we frequently
receive similar sightings from areas all over the lower
Abbotsford, BC: (8:15 pm)
and I were driving home tonight and I noticed some
blinking lights up towards the low hills in East
Abbotsford. I thought it was strange because of the
position as it was just to the left of the red beacon
lights for the airplanes. As we continued driving, the
object got closer and I got really excited. I could make
out a triangular shape with a red, green and white light
at each tip.
flying low and was about 4" inches across in
diameter. I knew for sure it was a UFO, when I saw
a plane in the background heading towards the airport
travelling at a much faster speed. It put everything
into perspective as to how slowly the object was
travelling and how close it was to the ground. We were
home in under a minute and i jumped out of the car to
try to get a picture, but it was gone. Darn!!
for the report!
you provide a bit more details for us, so that we can
mentally have a
picture of the event?
high off the ground would you say the object was when
you saw it? Also
how far part were the lights? You mention 4 inches in
diameter - I am having
difficulty in understanding the meaning of that size. Do
you mean the lights
themselves were 4" across, or that there were 4" apart
(and thus the object
was the size of a bagel)?
colours you describe are the colour requirements for
lights on aircraft:
the obvious question: What made you think it couldn't be
given that you were near an international airport, and
around the flight
path of known aircraft?
am of course playing the devil's advocate, but this type
of information is
essential to paint a clear picture.
forward to hearing from you!
Steveston, BC: (10:40 pm)
was outside of our townhouse walking our dog. My daughter
summoned me from upstairs and I could hear my husband
calling for me to come quickly. My daughter told me as I
was throwing on shoes that they saw 3 red/orange objects
coming down from the sky.
got on scene these 3 objects had vanished. As my husband
was explaining to me what he saw (3 red/orange round
objects hovering in a triangle over about a 2 minute
period) another red orange object appeared from west to
like it was staying in one position for about 1 minute
then started to have bright bursts like pulsating pattern.
I caught this one on video on my phone and it was 2mins 37
seconds long before it disappeared.
never seen flares before but we called it into the police
because we were concerned that a vessel might be in
distress on the Fraser given our location.
were patched through to the coast guard I believe (jrcc
victoria) whom we spoke with and I also emailed the video
a very clear night last night, planes overhead passed us
and this object I witnessed was completely different. The
operator told us that flares generally only last 45
seconds to 1 minute. Also suggested that it could be
was emailed back that the sightings were established not
to be of a marine emergency but no confirmation if any one
else had reported this either.
took the dog out to Garry Point and saw nothing further.
Went on Google and my husband said that a sighting in 2011
in Colorado that was photographed beared an uncanny
resemblance to the 3 reddish orange hovering objects>
sent chills right up my spine! They also looked like the
one I witnessed!
across this site and wanted to post to see if anyone else
in Richmond/Ladner area had also seen this last night.
very much for the report.
know it may be very difficult to answer, but how far
apart were the
objects to one another, and how high up were they and
what sort of speed
were they moving (snail's pace or jet liner fast)?
first glance, as the coast guard seems to have ruled out
the use of
emergency flares (from a real emergency) it may be
something as mundane as a
group of Chinese lanterns. As they loose lift (due to
the candle burning
out) they will start of descend and in their final death
throe, give bursts
of light as the candle flickers and dies.
of course, if the speed and altitude were known, then
this could rule
out this (rather simple) explanation, but given the
large number of such
sightings we have from the Richmond/Vancouver area it
does lean in that
direction. Looking forward to hearing back from you!
husband was on the phone with "jrcc victoria" the
operator asked how many fists from the ground if stacked
on top of another. I used my fist and counted 5 because
there was still one left when he was on the phone.

and hover in front of us at a distance. We initially
thought it must be right above the Fraser.
are 2 blocks away from the river.
to move further East, appeared to have a steady glow
with a slight pulse. Disappeared after 2 mins 40
seconds. 4 in total.
first 3 were in a triangle and one slightly moved around
according to my husband. No noise at all emitting from
time I felt no fear but I did feel like it hovered
within our view almost intentionally. (I feel very weird
admitting that but it's the honest truth). When it
appeared to the both of us it was moving at a steady
pace from West to East but then stopped. Restarted at a
snail's pace before it vanished Eastwardly. We were
looking at the object South of us.
on your site from Vancouver that has a link on YouTube
looked very similar to what we saw if that helps. Height
about the same.
it's entirely possible that they are lanterns of some
kind, but my husband disagrees.
for your reply.
Kelowna, BC: (1:30 am)
VERY saw a bright amber colored, twinkling, star,
March 31, 2014 at 1:30 AM. The colors brightened
around the edges, so I figured it may be an ember from
a fire, though I saw no fires, nor did I smell smoke.
We live on a flight path and can tell which direction
planes are coming from or going to. This light
appeared to be a very bright star, not the same
altitude as a plane, higher. It did emit a very small
red light every 30 or so seconds. There was no sound,
and no other planes in view to compare it to. The
light originally stayed put, as if floating in the air
when I first I saw it. Thought it was the prettiest
star I had ever seen. It passed by slower than a large
gliding bird - in no particular hurry, heading up the
lake towards Vernon - it did not appear to be going
towards the Kelowna airport. Just curious enough
to ask if anyone saw this. Thank you.
Richmond, BC: (1:19 am)
my townhouse complex at 1:19 am I saw a bright white
light cross in from from right to left. I was facing
north so that would make the light moving from east to
west in the northern sky. Though lacking clear
perspective, I would estimate it's position as being
over the airport, vancouver or over the northshore
mountains though could have been further away depending
The light was a solid blue white, probably around 5000
kelvin. It was very distinct against the black cloudless
area of sky. While moving east to west, it decended at
an angle of about 20 to 30 degrees. The decent was not
smooth and appeared to incorporate one or two dips while
changing from oval to flat to oval and possibly flat
again. IF it were saucer shaped, the best explanation
would be that it was banked, then flattened out, then
banked again, then possibly flattened again before it
left my line of sight. The changes in bank (shape)
appeared to co-incide with the dips. The size of the
object would be about .1 to .15 inch at arm's length.
in view would amount to about 1.5 - 2.0 seconds max. My
line of sight was blocked to the east by other
townhouses and the latter part of the decent was also
blocked as the object disappeared behind the roofs of
other townhouses in the immediate distance.
appear to be a meteorite although I can not rule that
out. I have seen several but none like this. It was
moving very slow for a meteorite yet much too fast for a
plane. I have been in aviation for nearing forty years
so I know absolutley it was not an airplane.
2-Apr-2014, Kelowna, BC: (2:30 am)
appear to be stars, shaped in the former of an
anniversary ring, three tiered, with white lights with
one, perhaps two red lights in the middle. The bigger
one appears to be flight height, the smaller has
slowly ascended, and getting harder to see. They
appear to be over hwy 97 in Kelowna, just before
Glenmore Drive, and after Clement. Never saw shapes
like that. They certainly aren't bright enough to
notice. The smaller of the two is nearly out of
Roberts Creek, BC: (9:15 pm)
formation of 6-8 lights, appeared above tree line but
below overcast clouds. Silent, no sound. Drifted to left
slightly then we ran in to tell my husband and they were
gone when we ran back 30 seconds later. We both asked
each other if we had seen it, I'm not afraid of going
out in the dark, I walk my dog each night in it, but
tonight was incredible, it WAS something unique!!
Vancouver, BC: (8:45 pm)
live close to Renfrew sky train at 15th & Slocan.
Last night, I decided to walk to the store for a tasty
beverage. Upon exiting my back door, I noticed two
bright star-like lights in the eastern sky. They
immediately caught my attention as it was not dark yet
and no other stars were visible, so I thought to myself;
'What the fuck?' (pardon my french.) I stared at them
for a second and could not believe my eyes as they
started moving in a manner I've never seen a plane or
helicopter move. One of them started descending and
moving further away, much to my amazement it faded away
and vanished before my eyes...WHAT THE FUCK?! I called
my roommate to come look, he just missed the vanishing
one, but the second one started to slowly ascend,
pulsating in brightness in a seemingly random pattern.
It found a position and remained stationary. We stared
at it for about 10 mins, the thing just pulsating. He
went in, I walked slowly to the store staring at the
object the whole time. I stopped and stared at it for
about 30 mins, by this time the stars were out. The
object was almost indistinguishable from the stars, save
for the fact that it was slightly brighter and continued
pulsating. I noticed the second one (barely visible) was
floating around the area, almost scanning, I would
say... it would sometimes flash faintly and then fade
again.... The whole time I watched these things I had an
intense tingly-cold sensation all throughout my
body....weird!!! That's pretty much it, I watched the
stationary one for over an hour, waiting for it to do
something. It didn't. The thing is you would probably
never be able to tell the difference between it and a
star if you didn't know.
Garden Bay, BC: (about 9 pm)
night of April 11 my wife and I decided to have a little
backyard fire and watch the stars, even though the moon
was almost full you can still see a fair amount. About 9
p.m. I looked up and saw a bright light travelling from
S.W. to N.E. It traversed the horizon in about 30+ sec.
It was by far the brightest object in the sky other than
the moon. It flew directly overhead and I paid special
attention to any noise such as a plane would make and it
was absolutely quiet. Where we are it is extremely quiet
( no traffic, nothing ) so to hear a plane or a motor of
some sort would be easy to hear. Not having something of
known size to compare it with, it is hard to say how big
it was, but it did just nicely fly over Mt. Daniel which
is beside our house and it is about 1500 ft. and if I
held out my hand at arms length my thumb nail would just
block out the light. Just before it flew over Mt. Daniel
we saw another one flying from south to north on an
intersecting course with the first one. We observed this
one for about 3 sec. before it faded away right before
our eyes. There were no clouds present to obscure it, it
just faded away as it was traveling. After they were
gone I went and got a camera and binoculars just in case
they came back. We stayed out for a couple more hours
but saw nothing more.
Hope you might have an explanation for this or know of
any others seeing this.
Vernon, BC: (about 4:30 pm)
were in Kal park and a large orange disk shape appeared
over the lake.
Sechelt, BC: (about 10 pm)
many similar strange sightings over the last two years,
viewed across the water around Sechelt, BC. In all
instances, the events included orange lights, sometimes
in formation, travelling over the Strait of Georgia
This particular sighting on April 14/14 took place
between and slightly behind the Trail Islands as viewed
from West Sechelt (at approximately a distance of 3km
off shore), at around 10pm.
There were six lights, travelling together in pairs at
different altitudes, with the highest being
approximately 300m off the water, and the other two
pairs just above the water. All were moving
together at the same pace. The foremost pair of lights
was white in colour, and one blinking light. The
second pair was also white lights of medium brightness,
while the pair at the highest altitude were
orange. While watching the event occur, one of the
top orange lights flared up to an extremely bright
"fireball", and stayed at this incredible brightness for
approximtely 1 minute before dimming down.
Watched these lights as they headed off across the
Strait, and then they became dim and/or blinked out and
Would love to hear more reports from people in the
Sechelt area, as I am sure others have witnessed such
events. I always watch for them now, as it seems
during certain times of the year the lights can be seen
out on the water sometimes up to 2 times per week,
ususally about an hour after dusk through to late
evening on clear nights. I have also seen them
originate from behind Davis Bay / Wilson Creek area, as
viewed from West Sechelt beaches. They usually
always show up as orange lights that 'flare up' as they
move across the Strait or remain stationary at altitudes
approximately the same as regular float plane traffic.
Invermere, BC: (4:30 am)
was outside and the sun wasn't up yet but it's light was
beginning to light up the night sky. The stars were
still fully visible. As I looked up I saw a bright flash
and then a smaller flash. I've seen this before and
thought it was an iridium flare satellite. I continued
to watch it as the now smaller light travelled across
the sky. All of a sudden it did a 45 degree turn! I
watched as this object then started to dart across the
sky making small deviations in its flight path one of
which was a fairly large circle. By now the sun was
coming up and the night sky was brightening making it
more and more difficult to see the object. Before it
became near impossible to view it started doing tight,
night - 3:30am - I went outside again. My theory is that
now I know what these objects look like, possibly I may
see more. I saw two more small, fast lights making "not"
straight line trajectories around the night sky.
if anyone else has seen these objects because last night
it seemed there were lots of them? I've found that you
have to look at a piece of sky clear of any other stars
or bright objects and look for tiny specks of light that
are moving very quickly. They're hard to see but once
you know what to look for there are lots.
Powell River, BC: (9:40 pm)
light, turquoise in colour, in the northwest sky over
the straight adjacent to Powell River. Light hovered,
moved from side to side, up and down in speed that was
not indicative of civilian aircraft. Lasted about 1 min
then descended out of view and not seen again.

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

for the report.
there was a meteor that was visible to the LowerMainland
- and fits your description and time. It has been on the
various media outlets throughout the day.
for the keen eye!!
White Rock, BC:
didn't actually see it, but my dad did. He told me
that he saw five orange lights about 1,000 feet in the
air. They were shaped like a stereotypical UFO, and
were apparently black or dark grey. They were moving
at the pace an airplane would, but moved like a
helicopter. He said that he could see everyone in
their cars looking up at them and almost crashing,
haha. I looked up some keywords of his sighting, and
it actually matches this person's description:
Coquitlam, BC: (9:30 pm)
was working an afternoon shift tonight till 9:00 pm at
the cities animal kennel. I have to walk the dogs
starting at 8:00 around a short loop just in back until
all the dogs are walked. Around 8:15 I noticed a red and
green flashing light above the east side of Burke
Mountain. (My work has a clear view of Burke Mountain
looking north.) I didn't see any thing of the light just
thought it was an airplane or something.
a few dogs out to do their business I noticed the light
again and just kept walking but as I rounded the kennel
facing south I noticed two larger red and green flashing
lights and they were in a parallel line staying in one
place. This is when the hair on the back of my neck
started to stand. I really thought I was starting to see
things but after looking at it for a minute I realized
it was real. These lights were much larger and brighter
than any stars and I had not seen those there earlier in
the night. So I rounded back and took another dog and
the lights are still there, so I go take another dog and
now I only see the light that was on the left and I keep
walking south and all of a sudden I see the light
zig-zag horizontally but going vertically. Very fast it
zig-zagged maybe 7-10 times and then shot to the right
of me (west). This is where I started to "shit bricks" I
really did not know of what to think of it?
why I posted my story here so i could possibly get an
I was not high or drunk since I was working, drugs are
illegal, and I'm not old enough to drink.
Thomas, thanks for your report.
what it could have been? Without seeing it ourselves,
there is always the looming fact we just do not know. It
could have been the lights from a small aircraft doing
evening flying and you happened to be seeing it at
various angles (coming towards you, away from you, etc)
and gave the appearance of a more abrupt flight path
than it actually took.
I cannot say anything for sure - if you see it again,
let us know!
Vancouver, BC: (10 pm)
live in east vacouver - at 10 pm tonight I was walking my
dog and noticed a green and red light in the sky at
airplane altitude heading south. I though "boy that
airplane is going fast!". Then it stopped dead. It stayed
still for about five seconds then started moving east at a
slower speed. Then it stopped again, hovered for a moment,
and then moved north at a high speed, but at a lower
altitude so that it disappeared over the mountains. The
lights were quite large and bright, so whatever it was
would have had to have had a substantial size. Another man
on the street saw it too, but shrugged it off as being a
drone. This was far too big and high up to be a drone. And
it was moving FAST.
Golden, BC: (around 1 am)
just found your site through a few other links on Youtube
otherwise I would have reported this much sooner. I have
tried getting information on this and feel it was
something ET rather than a ghost / spirit.
was on a tour with a tour company going through the
Rockies in Sep 2014. This was on the night of September
14th which I verified through checking my tour receipt
which was 4 days and nights.
was on a bus tour with all unknown tourists. We were
driven to a newly built set of cabins, truly in the middle
of nowhere, surrounded by old growth forest. No town, no
amenities other than the cabins themselves and a shared
dining cabin and kitchen. We arrived in the afternoon. I
was sharing a cabin with two other women. They were in one
bed and I was in another (you pay an upgrade to have one
bed to yourself).
knew the area was new as the cabin had the "new wood" look
and other cabins were still being constructed. I can
give the name of the tour company if you need to research
exactly where this is.
add that I had had one glass of wine that night and have
never, ever done drugs in my life. We played some team
games and had a camp fire going. Around 11pm we went to
bed as we were leaving by 9am or thereabouts the next
morning. I am a light sleeper anyway and sort of fell
asleep before midnight. There was an outside light for
each cabin and the curtains were thin so the light shone
through into the room, not brightly, but some light.
after midnight, maybe 12.30pm or 1am and I vaguely became
aware of a clicking sound, like a mechanical sound,
clicking in a pattern. I noticed this more and more, being
half-asleep and opened my eyes. As I looked to my right
from the bed, I saw a series of swirling mists inside the
room. The best way I can describe it is as if there were 3
objects in water spinning around in circles and around
each other and leaving a water trail or vapour trail. The
mist trail was thick grey but not smokey like an airplane,
much denser. But it was grey. At first I thought it was a
trick of the light but I could see it redrawing itself and
the shapes moving and changing. As if 3 (or maybe
more) high speed objects were leaving a trail behind but I
could see no objects, only the trail.
shone through the curtain and highlighted this thing or
things. They were redrawing the trail over and over
as the three of them seemed to form a circle, and were
suspended in the air. The circle formed was maybe 3
feet in diameter and 3 or 4 feet above the ground. It or
they did not move around the room, just rotated on the
spot, but as I say, I could not see any object creating
this "vapour trail". The sound did not match the
things I saw, as there was nothing solid I could see.
have no idea what it was, but my gut reaction is it felt
like something callibrating, measuring, assessing or
trying something out. This is of course just my own
wanted to be sure I was not dreaming and watched it for a
minute or two to confirm I could see the vapour trail
continue to move and be redrawn and swirling. I then
wanted to be sure it was not some strange shadow from the
ceiling fan and could see too many details in the vapour
trail so it did not at all match a shadow.
was a fairly quiet sound so the other two girls did not
got out of bed to the left of my bed. Behind me was
the bathroom light. The thing did not move when I
moved. However, the instant I turned on the bathroom light
the thing or things were gone. I rationalised that I
was imagining it all but realised that the sound had
stopped too. I was scared for the rest of the night
and barely slept. I fell asleep maybe at 6am or
thereabouts for an hour, that's all.
have googled "swirling mists with clicking sound" and seen
various results. I've had other experiences but this is
the first that feels completely non-human.
happy to discuss further as this is bothering me
somewhat. I come from a technical background and
embrace both known facts and the fact that there is much
we do not know. Definitely not a hoax, happy to
provide drawings, details and more.
Vernon, BC: (8 pm)
not a bigfoot or ghost sighting - but a UFO! Near Kin
Beach in Vernon, BC. I took my dog for a swim on the
Okanagan waters. There was four of us, just playing fetch
with the dog until we took interest in these 2 parallel
running bright orange lights in the sky. We observed them
moving simultaneously in the sky - one on top of the
other. And then one turned into this black circular,
opaque object looking thing and slowly started to descend.
We were all wondering… Is this a sky diver in the night?!
Or what the heck! The most bizarre part was when the
orange light now slowly started to descend towards the
mountain. It hovered at the tree line, came down the
mountain and back up again, while moving quite fast.
Faster than any human I know!
light slowly hovered back up into the sky and then slowly
diminished. Sort of like a flame going out. The other
orange light I talked about initially wasn't far behind.
It rose up and sort of did the same thing. The light just
slowly diminished while in the sky. Weird! I don't know
what else it could have been but a UFO. I have a strong
feeling it was. I always wanted to spot one! And look at
for the report.
few mundane questions for you:
high would you say the object was when moving in the
sky? At what speed?
I am also trying to figure out sizes - you mention a
skydiver, so would you
think about that size or smaller/bigger?
Finally, would you mind drawing us a quick sketch of
what you saw? It always
helps if we can have a doodle to at least mentally
picture the event.
I am not good with the specifics ha although I'll try.
Mmm from the beach, the two orange lights running
parallel with each other were looking a couple inches
off the top the mountain ha! So fairly close... Maybe a
150 feet the top one. And the bottom one perhaps like 50
They were moving slowly... then stopped dead, and the
top one turned into a black opaque object of oval shape.
How big this was I am not sure... Say the size of a hot
tub lol. It was hard to tell from such a distance. This
is what we were joking that it was a sky diver in the
night. Although it didn't look like that at all - it was
a balloon oval shaped thing above a light so... Whatever
that looks like!
black object came straight down and we could no longer
see it once it hit the tree line. The still light up
orange light came straight down moving quite slow and
started moving down the mountain, next to treeline it
seemed fast to me for any object I would know to move
through there. Then came back up after say 30 seconds of
browsing and hovered straight up into sky again. And
only say 50-100 feet up the light slowly diminished.
Then this other orange light around the same area came
moving straight up then at an angle... Fairly slow...
And went out just like the other one.
don't know if that's a total of two orange lights, or
three. But very cool!
Hope this helps. Thanks!
20-Sep-2014, Keremeos, BC: Greetings,
sure who I'm talking to nor where to report, but you might
want to check this video:
Description included in video caption. UFO Keremeos BC 20
A loud humming and buzzing sound woke me up at night in
Keremeos, on September 20, 2014. A bright shining light
pulsating, changing colors, was flying over the mountain
of Columns Park, made of basalt columns. It moved around a
while and then hovered for a long time, apparently
I filmed it for 20 minutes and discovered interesting
details when annalyzing the footage frame by frame and
enlarged. It has the general shape of a pumpkin, the
closest thing I can find to describe it. Some rows of
lights can be seen around it. An aura or magnetic shield
surrounding the ship kept pulsating with the changing
buzzing sound, and could be seen at times as a green grid.
Holographic projections appear in the shielding energy
field and images, like eyes can be seen at times, as an
identification and communication device for the occupants.
After about one hour, the craft started ascending slowly
and its lights got dimmer, until it disappeared. More
details can be seen in the video. Images are worth 1,000
Thanks for your interest and feedback...
beginning of your video you give examples of video
captures of the full moon and a normal star. Thank you for
these. In the "Zoom Out" of the star you can see it as a
small point of light. In the "Zoom In" image it shows up
as a large pixellated object. With the modest telescope I
had in my younger days I quickly realized that a true
"optical" enlargement of a star still shows it as a tiny
point of light - a little brighter, but still a point of
light. The large pixellated star and "ufo" are either out
of focus, or "digital" zooms. The "magnetic shield", "rows
of lights" and "holographic projections" are just
magnified atmospheric fluctuations, clouds, ambient lights
and your imagination. You can also see that when zoomed
in, the star and the "ufo" are both six-sided. This is an
artifact of the camera aperture, and not a true indication
of the actual shape of the objects. I have watched the
video several times, and see no reason to classify that
object as a true ufo.
had filmed the object in "Zoom Out" mode, and it had
showed unusual movements in relationship to the background
stars, trees, mountain, etc, it may have had some
interest. Unfortunately, nocturnal lights are usually the
weakest of sighting reports at the best of times.
North Vancouver, BC: (9:05 pm)
was looking out my living room window at the North Shore
mountains at 9:05 pm. There was an orange light moving
from north to south at about 1000 feet. It caught my eye
because of the colour and the fact that there was no
blinking nav lights or strobes as would be seen on an
aircraft. The bottom of the light looked sharp, the top
looked fuzzy (see pic) There was no flickering of the
light like a japanese lantern, it was totally stable in
intensity. It was moving faster than the planes and
helicopters I usually see, taking no more than 10
seconds to travel from beside Grouse Mtn to the point
where it suddenly stopped and hovered for about a
minute. I grabbed my camera and got one pic before it
rose straight up at an amazing speed. As it ascended it
got smaller and dimmer quickly until I couldn't see it
any more (3-4 seconds). As I watched it disappear I
could see a disc shape at what seemed like 10,000 feet
moving from east to west. It became visible at the exact
spot the orange light disappeared. It was grey and just
visible against the night sky. The disc seemed to be
travelling at the speed of an airliner at high altitude
(500 mph?) It was soon too faint to make out against the
night sky. As far as size, it looked to be slightly
bigger than a jumbo jet when flying at 30,000 ft.
years I have seen many things in the sky including the
ISS being chased by the shuttle, comet hale-bopp,
helicopters with search lights on and planes of all
descriptions. Never have I seen anything that looked or
flew the way the orange light did.
Vancouver, BC: (9:30 am)
I was looking out the window from the 21st floor of my
friend's highrise building. I saw 5 or 6 sparkling
objects moving from east to west in tandem. One was
ahead and leading the way. They were about 1/10th of the
size of an airplane and I know that because 2 or 3
airplanes and/or floatplanes passed by them. As the
planes were passing these objects would hide in the
clouds and then come out again when the planes would
pass. I couldn't believe my eyes. I picked up a
binocular and tried to look at them - they appeared as
moving objects and were flashing electric rays similar
to a thunder storm - from afar they looked like
sparkling stars. I noticed them with white and orange
flashing lights when they origunally showed up, but the
lights then turned into white only.
Kamloops, BC: (6:16 pm)
rod shaped object slowly ascending into the sky over
Kamloops, BC. It was not a plane. Was very shiny silver
colour and bright. Was definitely not an airplane shape.
Headed over Kamloops past the highway towards Barriere,
BC. I was on the phone to my husband and said the weirdest
object in the sky is making a slow pass.
Abbotsford, BC: (9:30 pm)
lots of "low intensity lighted ball" traffic over Fraser
Valley. I'm in Abbotsford and saw the latest last night
930 pm. Flying northeast to southeast below aircraft
about 200 feet. Might want to put some cameras up, hey ya
for the tip!
Can you kindly provide a better description of what they
look like? Were they following the aircraft, in a similar
They seemed about the size of a truck, but from that
distance tough to gage the diameter. It was ball-shaped
and like a dull lightbulb, almost translucent dull orange.
I have had two sightings this summer and one
yesterday. The others were exactly the same except lit up
like a spotlight. All were travelling the NE to SE and vis
versa. Oh ya No sound.
the Helios or local planes using valley airports. Which I
watch avidly from my southern facing porch. NE of
Abbotsford International Airport.
a nut job (although my wife might disagree lol) but have
been familiar with aircraft for most of my life growing up
in a military family. These were not aircraft in the
conventional term. Balls of energy would almost describe
it better. Only white and the dull orange colors seen.
I have also seen several light streaks that seem to be
parallel to the border. ?
in our hot tub watching for meteorites my girlfriend and
I caught sight of a very dark coloured cylindrical
object. It was moving quickly and silently at an
altitude lower than passenger aircraft fly in this area.
This very dark grey object appeared to have 3 evenly
spaced sections which were glowing with a very dim
yellowish light. As we watched. it flew under a small
cloud and continued on it's north south trajectory until
it faded from sight in the darkness. I would estimate
it's length to be about the size of a commercial
passenger plane but the body was larger in diameter. It
did not have regulation lights nor did it have any
visible appendages such as a tail or wings.
Kamloops, BC: (11:16 pm)
is about one-third the way up the valley’s south side
overlooking the city of Kamloops. Most summer and fall
nights I go out on my balcony for an hour before I retire.
My balcony faces north and Polaris is directly in front of
me about 50° above the horizon. Because of the city lights
I can only see 52 stars from this view. I know every one
of them by heart. I count the number of airplanes,
satellites, and meteors that I see each night. On this
particular night I went out and before I even sat in my
chaises lounge I noticed a magnitude -2 to -3 star in the
northwest. I immediately thought it was the ISS going
over-head but after a second or two I realized it wasn’t
moving. There should not be a star of that magnitude at
that location and I wondered what it might be. It was
approximately where the star 21 CVn should be, (however, I
can’t see a star that dim from my balcony) so I thought it
might have gone supernova! But that particular star is too
small and too close to have gone supernova (a star that
close going supernova would be as bright as the sun).
Still it could be a star far beyond 21 CVn that had gone
supernova so maybe I should report it to the IAU.
While I was mulling over these thoughts the star gave off
a faint pulse of light and less than a second later shot
off straight north so fast my eyes couldn’t follow it. No
propulsion system I know of could accelerate an object so
quickly and no inertia cancellation technology that I am
aware of could have saved the craft or its occupants from
instant destruction. I place this object clearly in the
is Vivian from Richmond. I think i accidentally captured
a picture of UFO on October 23, 2014, at 5:55pm. I
wanted to capture a picture of the eclipse. However,
when I looked at the picture 2 hours later , I saw a
white dot that looked like an UFO. I am looking forward
to clarify whether I really captured UFO.
for the photo, but what you have caught is known as a ‘Sun
Dog’ : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_dog
Not a UFO, but certainly a nice shot!
didn’t know there was a UFO*BC, or I obviously would have
reported this right away. I just found out about UFO*BC
from reading a report by somebody online, and that they
had contacted this site. This happened five years ago in
2014. It was approximately three days before Halloween.
The time was anywhere from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm. I was at my
computer, and decided to take a break and go outside which
by then was dark. I walked outside my door, and right away
I noticed this object about 70 feet above the ground, and
a 1/3rd the distance down the road from my street corner.
The measurement off the ground being roughly close,
because the tallest of the fir trees was fifty feet high
which the object was sitting motionless and noiselessly in
the air twenty feet above the fifty foot fir tree. In the
dark it looked like it had curved corners. I could see the
outline of cabin looking like an upside down U-shape
attached to the rest of the object, like an appendage
sticking out. On the right side of the object there was
one huge blue light and on the right side of it a huge red
light. There was a bit of activity in the sky that night.
Small planes were flying in the background, I would
estimate 20 miles away. The pilots too, maybe would have
seen it, if there were lights on the other side of the
Williams Lake, BC: (8 pm)
I stood there, and thought. Oh a UFO. Then it moved from
side to side very quickly, very smoothly, and then up and
down, all done with great precision and soundlessly. Then
it starting going lower in between the two fir trees and
looked like it went back out over the ocean.
the fireworks ended about 8 pm my friend and I saw 2
lights that seemed to move together in one spot for about
2 minutes then gradually moved farther away until no
longer visible. We were looking southeast from apartment
building on Donald Road just above Chevron gas station.
The whole event lasted about 3 minutes.
for the report!
you think it was anything out of the ordinary? For
instance, could it have been 2 airplanes that appeared to
be close by, but in reality were some distance away from
that people were setting off fireworks, it was probably
was not Chinese lanterns and it was not airplanes. I
haven't seen lights like this before, it was the movement
of them and speed with which they disappeared. I know how
airplanes look in the sky and how they move. Chinese
lanterns would be moving steadily away not staying in one
Port Coquitlam, BC: (9:30 pm)
was Oct 31, 2014 at 9:30 pm. I was looking out my
basement window up in the sky, it was perfectly clear
out. I was looking to the east, my window only faces
east, it's a small window, but looking at a small part
of the sky, I saw what I thought was the space station,
cause sometimes you can, or I thought was maybe a
satellite. Then it became an orange ball of fire! I
thought this is weird!!! I'm going to keep watching
this. A few more minutes went by then the ball got
bigger and brighter orange, then I started thinking.???
Anything that enters our atmosphere from space no matter
what it is will burn up or glow an orange hue if the
objects make it. For example, the space shuttle will
glow orange upon re- entry...etc....so as I watched it.
The object got bigger and closer heading west towards
me, but way above me. It was in a cloud after the orange
went away. I could only turn my head so much before I
ran outside to see where it was going. Before I did that
I was still inside looking up at this ... It was insane
when it came out of the cloud I could see a round
disc-shaped ship with one blue and red light under it.
I'm like..!!! Holey crap man, what the hell is it!?! I
ran outside to see if I could see it before it went
away. I went out my basement door, ran into the back
yard, stopped and looked up!!! And there it was, gliding
with no noise between my house and my neighbor's house.
I was thinking how did it do that, and why would it just
glide over my house? Why didn't it just keep going west
up in the sky???? I could see it plain as day. It was
round, black in color, with no lights on. It was about
what seemed to be 40 or 50 feet above me. I freekin
watched this thing fly or glide right over my head! It
was very surreal - right out of the movies. I saw what
it looked like, all I could say to myself, "This is the
coolest thing I've ever seen!!!" I stood there and
watched it for about 15 minutes as it kept going south
towards the city of White Rock....it stayed at that
lower cruising level, until it went out of sight. It
never sped away or just disappeared like most sightings.
It must of been about 20 to 30 feet in diameter. Please
let me know what you think!
Surrey, BC (Newton area): (11:30 pm)
1: Triangle with lights on 2 sides.
It was a full moon. There was nonoise. About 1/10th
the size of the moon. Moved along the cloudline. It
was above us for about one and a half minutes, then it
went into theclouds and was gone. Because of the shape
and that it made no noise, I am sure this was a UFO.
2: It was november 10 and we saw it
just down the street from where I live.It was
triangle-shaped and had one line of lights - no sound
and moving really slow. We followed it then it up and
disappeared behind somehouses. It was not a plane. We
have a sunroof and opened it - there was no sound at
witnessed two strange consecutive phenomena late one
evening (actually, early morning I think).
While sitting on my back patio having a cigarette, I
noticed a very bright white light starting to travel
across the sky from south to north. There were a number of
strange things about this light:
1) as it traveled across the sky, it maintained a
consistent brightness from end to end
2) it became (somewhat) v-shaped as it
traveled. i.e. the back end widened (like a
contrail) as the object moved, without losing brightness
3) the edges were (and remained) clean and
4) the front was round and of the same brightness
and definition as the rest of the trail
5) continuing the contrail comparison, this thing
was about 100 times wider (at least) than your standard
I didn't notice it fade away, disappear, whatever; because
of the second phenomena that occurred a few minutes later
(5 minutes as a guesstimate).
1) this was a bright, bright yellow light traveling
west to east at treetop level. Some of it was behind the
treetops, some of it above. The distance of this light
from where I was sitting might have been about a city
2) again, consistent brightness and clean,
3) there was possibly a rumbling noise associated
with this light, but that might have been street traffic
from the main drag a few blocks away.
4) here's the really weird thing about this light;
it didn't fade.....it dissipated. Think of the light
as being composed a zillion tiny particles. The particles
didn't fade away, they randomly extinguished. Kind of a
sparkle effect in reverse.
Anyhow, that's what I saw. I've been thinking about it
ever since and still have no idea what is I saw.
Vancouver, BC (Yaletown area): (9:45 pm)
17th floor Yaletown apartment, we saw a very bright
orange light emerge from tree height at Aquarius Mews
and ascended on a steady diagonal path, towards the West
of False Creek until we lost sight as it went behind
other buildings. It was a rainy and windy night, yet the
light was constantly fiery orange, not flicking like a
lantern nor flashing like a plane. There seemed to be a
white light at the centre, a fuzzy border at the top,
and made no apparent sound.
in Agassiz, BC. Looking east out our back window my wife
and I saw what we can only consider to be a UFO. Flying
low over the foothills of Mount Cheam, just east of
Highway 1...a large oval-shaped object with what
appeared like headlights spaced apart in a ring around
the saucer. It kept slowly moving southward over the
Bridal Falls area until it dropped from our view behind
some trees. There are people living in that vicinty and
some businesses such as the Ranchers' Restaurant and
Bridal Falls golf course. It did not look like a plane
for the report.
sighting! Can you estimate the height of the object
along with its size? Perhaps you could guess speed and
direction of travel? Other than the obvious, what made
you think that this couldn't be something common such as
you think you could draw us a picture and perhaps email
it to us?
Victoria, BC: (8:30 to 9:00 pm)
- blue and red multi that were aligned and moved in
perfect unison in the sky at a 90 degree angle -
bouncing up and down like they were trying to
communicate. Entire neighbourhood watching as they were
put there for 30 minutes. Husband got footage.
be possible for you to have to the other members of your
neighborhood contact us? Please just give them our email
love to see the footage - and will await your reply before
we ask any further questions.
Nanaimo, BC: (5:53 pm)
I saw a triangle-shaped aircraft with two bright white
lights hovering adjacent to the highway. At first I
thought it was a small plane or helicopter until I moved
closer to it and then saw it was a triangle. My car passed
almost under the craft. There were hundreds of other cars
near me so other people must have seen this. I was
wondering if anyone else in this area has reported seeing
this thing tonight.
Campbell River, BC: (about 6:45 pm)
red lights in sky ( I saw 4 before running inside to get
husband) moving slowly to the right and east over the
ocean. 3 were in a perfect triangular formation the 4th
had dropped from view by the time I got my husband
outside. Slowly faded from view as they moved east.
was wanting to contact you because I caught a picture of 4
possible UFO's drifting over Kaslo. This photo was taken
on my smartphone. I put a filter on the 2nd one to better
show you the lights we saw that night.
So the story is, I was sitting at a stop sign with my
friend in his truck and as I looked out the passenger
window I saw a glare of reddish light. I thought it might
have been a street lamp but when I looked for the source I
realized it was in the sky. My friend gave out a nervous
"woah" as we jumped out of the truck. Heads looking up in
the sky I counted 5 UFOs that had a red glow like a
lantern yet big and bright. It was easy to pick out in the
clear sky that night. As we observed the UFOs they seem to
move very slowly almost drifting through the sky. After
was seemed like 10 seconds the lights swooped into more of
a line to the right of us over the mountain. We stepped
back into the truck not actually sure what we saw. I
decided it was good old Santa visiting us on Christmas
Eve. In all seriousness though has anyone seen lights like
red Chinese lanterns in the sky that are definitely UFO?
