SIGHTING REPORTS FROM 2020
12-Jan-2020, Ucluelet, BC:
here are 3 pictures, before, the event and after. I
notices the strange thing when I was browsing the pictures
on my computer. I am attaching the pictures in original
state, look above and to the right of the eagle. Picture
taken at 11:55 am Ucluelet, BC from the fishermen area,
looking up in the sky. You will see I was rotating
following eagle in flight.
is not a reflection for sure, sun is behind me, no dirty
lens either, the dot is not on the shot before and after,
it is not the moon I think.
for the lovely photos.
think you are talking about:
that is the case, that is likely to be something very
close to the camera, like a bug. If you notice that the
object appears translucent and more of a blob than a solid
object. That would be due to the focus and telephoto
aspect you would need to catch the eagle in flight – the
result is that anything closer would be almost invisible.
example is to try to take a photo of someone on the ice
next time you’re at a skating rink. The net that is
usually up to protect people in the seats from flying
pucks, is all but invisible when zoomed in and appears as
a haze rather than an object.
again for the photos – I would frame those if I were you!
Surrey, BC: (4:45 and 7:30)
Hey, saw a post on your site about strange lights in
surrey bc on October 29, 2019.
Saw these same lights Twice on Jan 17th, first time about
4:45pm, then again about 7:30pm. Looks like the poster
from oct 29th lives in the same building as i do, about 10
floors below me.
Here's what i saw:
Have a pair of binoculars and whoa, were these weird to
see through those! They are different from one
another, and were also different at different times.
Best i can describe: a very bright burning ball of flames
with individual lights and outline of craft visible aka
didn't look like it was on fire by accident, moreso a fire
was part of the appearance. 4:45 pm was yellow/orange
flames with bright red flame tips, 7:30 pm was white
flames with bright green flame tips. Shape was
somewhat like a crown, one appeared to be rotating.
I'd say each lasted 20 minutes or so, but cant really
explain what happened to them as they seemed to go behind
a building that's in front of us.
10-Feb-2020, Chilliwack, BC:
to you, from Chilliwack in the Fraser Valley of BC.
i am to share with you two different sightings of the same
thing, 3nights(mornings) to a week apart, because i am not
understanding what i saw and I'm hoping others can help
around 530-6 am I'm looking North and see a "moving star"
going East. Then another one behind it about an eye's
centimeter apart. Then another, counting a total of 5, all
spaced the same distance. Then they faded out right before
my eyes. The best way to explain this is like a chain or
wire with oil drips going down it but instead of up &
down it was West to East and quite high in the sky as it
appeared to be a star(s) at first. It (they) were at a
higher altitude than what a plane flies at for reference.
was alone the first sighting, but this morning (feb
10,2020) my sister was outside with me. This time it was
about an hour or so later than the first sighting &
had been right overhead my house where as the first one,
was on the other side of my house closer to the Fraser
River (about 5-10km from me?) if that makes sense. I told
her about the first sighting the morning it happened, and
said that it was exactly what I had explained to her the
days previous. She couldn't believe her eyes and was
surprised at what she had just seen considering i had just
told her about this a few days prior.
since i have seen this twice now, i decided to report so i
can possibly get some answers to what it was or entice
others to come forward if they witnessed this oddity too.
you for reading and i look forward to your reply.
you may have seen are the Starlink satellites deployed by
Spacex – they look like a chain of lights separated by a
distance exactly as you described. There aren't many yet,
but they plan to deploy about 120 a month for the next few
is a website where you can enter your location of
Chilliwack as I did, and it will tell you the times and
dates that the satellites will be visible.
100 Mile House, BC: (5:30 am)
wife had just gotten up and I was lying in the dark
bedroom and was absently looking out the window when into
my field of view at the top of the window frame came a
bright light (like an LED car light) little larger than
the stars and it was moving in straight line. As I was
trying to figure out what I was looking at a second light
came into view following the first. When the third came
into view I had my face against the window and was calling
my wife who got there in time to see the last three
disappear behind a tree in our back yard. After they went
behind the tree we ran out on to the deck but they were
gone behind the next building.
all I counted twelve traveling in a row about three
fingers apart at arms length in a East by South/East
direction. It was clear except for a thin band of high
clouds which they were above.
routinely have commercial jets going over here either at
thirty five or thirty seven thousand feet depending on
direction of travel. At that height their running lights
are clearly visible and one can easily discern that they
have more than one light.
moved across the sky easily four or five time faster than
commercial jets. There was no discernible sound signature,
no vapor trail, no running lights.
reason this is been posted here is I can come up with no
other explanation for what we saw.
for the report. What you saw is thanks to SpaceX - and
they are a string of satellites which orbit in groups.
There are only a few hundred in orbit at the moment, but
the current plan is to increase that to thousands - so
they will become a regular presence in our night sky.
BC: (6:05 am)
name is Dave and I live in Vancouver. It is now 06:22.
About 06:05, 20 Feb.2020 I stepped outside my place for
some fresh air. I looked up at a clear sky with the stars
still visible with dawn approaching. I noticed at first
what appeared to be a Satellite moving across the
sky directly above and moving from West to North
East..then another spaced apart moving in the same
direction, another all spaced apart very high altitude and
counted about 10 in number.

Mill Bay, BC:
not sure what I saw this morning but I can only describe
it as 8-10 satellite like lights travelling east over Mill
Bay BC towards the USA in perfectly spaced formation: 2
followed by 2 followed by 3 then 2.
high altitude which made me think satellite but the
formation doesn’t fit what I normally see. Very clear
morning and very dark. Could see no contrails produced and
no noise whatsoever.
am familiar with aircraft and see them regularly but this
doesn’t fit anything I normally see. My wife also

8-Mar-2020, Burnaby, BC:
was shopping with my roommate going into the Safeway at
Kensington Heights Burnaby; we had been at the Buy-Low at
Holdom about 40 minutes before and were admiring the moon
but didn’t see anything else. After we went to Safeway on
Hastings we were walking to the car and it was dark by
then. We saw a large white light in the western sky with
what looked like a smaller one beneath it. It was really
big and did not twinkle so I knew it wasn’t a star. It
never moved and we watched it for a good 5+ minutes. I was
thinking maybe it was a space station or something. Any
idea what this was? We saw it with the naked eye and it
was still there when we got to Bainbridge Ave and Lougheed
Highway, still bright and not twinkling or moving and that
was about 15-20 minutes after leaving Safeway.
ISS is only visible for a few minutes. If you were able to
see it some 20min after the first sighting, then it was
likely a planet. Venus is clearly visible in our night sky
(when not raining … which is seldom) this time of year. It
appears as a very bright light, second only to the moon.
Here is a link that may help, my vote is Venus.
Qualicum Beach, BC: (10:40 pm)
night I was witness to a UFO sighting here in Qualicum
was about 10:30 pm and my daughter and I where on our
outside hotter when all of a sudden we saw the most
amazing and longest shooting star we have ever seen, after
seeing this, we started talking about UFO’s and my many
experiences in Mexico before. After a few minutes she went
indoors and I remained in the hotter, just lying down
looking at the beautiful night sky full of stars… it was
then that I saw a huge triangular shape, almost
transparent, see- through , and it had small triangles
within, it must have been at least 100 meters of the
ground and it was slow and steady, I saw it fly above me
and then just flew away… I felt mesmerized and amazed, I
felt a little bit of fear , but it quickly went away ,and
after a few more minutes I came back indoors and told my
wife and daughter about the incident.
15-Mar-2020, Alert Bay, BC:
at home with wife around 10 pm last night. We first saw
two lights like shooting stars but steady and stable. Then
from the same direction there came a string of equidistant
lights maybe 12 or 15 traveling in line formation.
It lasted few minutes.
Location is alert bay bc.
I took a video but it seems to compress and loose quality
when I try to share.
believe what you saw were the string of satellites
launched by Spacex.
went to the Heavens Above website and set it for Alert
Bay. It does show that the the Spacex satellites would be
visible from your location in the W/WNW direction from
8:00 until about 11:30. Is that the direction you were

16-Mar-2020, Qualicum Beach, BC:
around 11:30pm in Cultus Lake, BC, I was looking up at the
sky and noticed a strange bright light with a smaller
dimmer light moving around it. It went on for a good 2
minutes and then row after row of the smaller dimmer
lights, must've been 50 or more over the course of 20
minutes one after another moving perfectly synced in
direction and a slow steady speed, some would stop and
dart up and down, but would continue on the exact same
path as all the other ones after. Eight other witnesses
were with me none of us had ever seen anything like it. It
was much too dark to get a video on a cell phone but a
friend in Abbotsford, BC managed to get a video of when it
all started with the one bright light and the smaller
dimmer light moving around it. I am a believer we are not
alone in the universe but what is going on is the real
for the report,
you likely saw is thanks to SpaceX - and they are a string

hundred in orbit at the moment, but the current plan is to
increase that to thousands - so they will become a regular

25-Mar-2020, Vancouver, BC:
was near Cambie St and Marine Dr in South Vancouver at a
park. A couple of friends and I looked up into the night
sky and saw what seemed to be 4 satellites going in the
same direction and disappearing into a possible cloud that
wasn't visible. In the opposite direction we saw 1 that
looked similar but had momentarily paused and slightly
changed direction. We thought logically they all had to be
satellites. When walking away we saw another one but this
one seemed to significantly brighter but looked to be
taken the same path as the first 4. As we walked towards
it the UFO slowed down almost to a complete stop until it
started veering into another direction and disappearing
into what may have been a cloud that wasn't visible in the
night sky. Could you possibly shed some light on this?

other one – I cannot say … perhaps an aircraft’s landing
light? As you know satellites cannot change direction, so
if it wasn’t due to some type of optical effect that
caused it to appear to move in a non linear fashion, then
I cannot say what the 5th object was – there just isn’t
enough information I’m afraid. But as mentioned the 4 are
certainly SpaceX satellites.
for the report!
7-Apr-2020, Aldergrove, BC:
(about 10:00 pm)
night, April 7,2020 (full moon) I took a photo outside of
the moon about 10:00 pm at home near the Aldergrove border
crossing. The photo shows another small blue bright circle
to lower right of the moon. A friend in Nanaimo had the
same blue circle in her photo. I am curious to know what
curious, was the blue orb visible to the naked eye when
you took the photo?
for the reply.
suspected that it was not visible to the naked eye. What
you have there is what is commonly called a lens flare.
They are often found when the lens is very small (like in
a phone camera) and the light source is very bright (as in
the full moon). Here in the Wikipedia entry for it- and
they can do a much better job explaining it than I can do
Thanks again for the email!
11-Apr-2020, Surrey, BC:
April 11 2020 in South Surrey BC, at 3:10 am I woke up
couldn't sleep made my self a coffee, turned on my TV and
sat by my window as I do every am, when I noticed a
strange light outside, really unusual.
would like to mention I reside in a RV and have done so
for 14 years and in the same lot, so a strange light/glow
would really be out of place. I was memorized for a
moment, couldn't really explain what it was, at that
moment I turned my TV off to attempt a better view through
the cedar hedges but I needed more. I had my slippers on
so I went outside, climbed my ladder to my roof and stood
there in awe. There was a round orange/yellow stationary
object absolutely no noise then it took off
straight up well in the direction of 1:00 o'clock. I stood
there for a few more seconds, climbed down, went in, and
to remember, I wrote it in my journal. Also used my phone
for compass direction, 128 SE from where I saw/ seen it .
The night was clear as to be sure it wasn't the moon I saw
the moon just off my right shoulder, unusual still can't
explain it, was the strangest thing I have seen and yes I
should have taken my phone but curiosity got the better of
Vancouver, BC: (1:00 am)
at 220 Princess Avenue, 9th floor when I noticed a green
and red triangle SHAPE moving east to west in a blink of
an eye was gone about 30 mins. Never seen anything like
Chilliwack, BC: (10:30 pm)
there. This sighting happened 10:30pm or so, Sunday April
19th 2020, just outside Chilliwack BC. I had been sitting,
watching the sky & flashing a pattern with a
flashlight. After a while, I spotted a series of Skylink
satellites.. all in an evenly spaced row.. very
interesting.. they were a ways south of dead center of the
sky & moving west to east from what i could tell.. i
was almost looking straight up watching them.. the big
dipper was a little off to the left & higher up of
where i was looking at the time.. whats really interesting
is i then noticed another ‘light’ about the same size as
the satelites, but brighter & moving faster.. it was
navigating in a curved path from an area on one side of
the row of satelites, to an area on the opposite side of
them.. like, crossing their path.. this curved trajectory
was repeated three times, then the object sped off and
became too dim/ small to see. It was like it was being
‘piloted’.. watching it ‘felt’ totally different from the
satelites or a plane that passed earlier.. kind of a
weird feeling watching this thing!
got it on film..... I came home seen what was 2 long lines
side by side in the sky. When it went over stars they
would disappear. I thought I never caught it on my cell
phone but after some time looking at it I spotted it on
the film and so did my nephew. Just outside of Ashcroft.
is an enhanced still from your video, you can see the
lights (central strip):
you’re seeing (and I must say I’m impressed you managed to
film them with a smartphone) are the Space X Starlink
satellites .. here is another show of them
can find all the details here:
Thanks for the report!
Harrison Hot Springs, BC:
sure what I witnessed last night ... but definitely scared
the hell out of me......something flew by my house 300 to
400 hundred feet off the ground .... it was totally silent
... it had form but was see through! I know weird eh !!! I
yelled for my wife, she later said that she believed me
.... a lot of activity in the sky last night shortly after
the SpaceX Satellite show. I can give you more information
if you would like.
please, any details as to what you saw would be great.
Typical things are time, date, location, direction you
were facing, direction of travel of object (if any), size
shape of object etc.
Smithers, BC: (3:23 am)
this morning I was standing on the back deck of my house
between 3:30am - 3:35am June 17, 2020 on Poplar Road in
was facing towards 127 degrees SE, when the event was
noticed and captured from start. When it ended I was
roughly facing 103 degrees East.
I couldn’t use my Video option in my phone, it was too
dark, however; my photo worked.. and used the PhotoBurst
option on iPhone to take a video-like, photo experience.
Edited in iMovie to form a video.
This video doesn’t do justice to what was seen by the
eyes’. There were several lights flashing/blinking around
[about 6],.. and, that black bar is the roof of my home.
Also, in the past month I’ve witnessed several [about 10]
UFO sightings above/around my home… no one believed me, so
I finally got some proof! Haha-
wanted to update as to our findings
After looking at air traffic, I came across what I think
may be what you saw – at least the timing, location and
direction are spot on the money.
For 03:23PST we need 10:23UTC, so
The large plane (right above Houston in the big photo) is
en-route to ORD from ANC Boeing 777, flight CAO1055 Would
be visible in the sky. The direction SE/E would be
correct, and perhaps the lights on the newer 777s may look
a bit funky from the ground ..
At 3:20am it was this close:
the time of the event (3:23), it was here (below) … so it
could just be an airplane??
than that, I am not too sure what else it could be. As
this field is full of unknowns, and we cannot be sure
about anything, but I’m reasonably convinced you saw a
Boeing 777 that night en-route to Chicago. What do you
28-Jun-2020, French Creek, BC:
I live in French creek on Vancouver island. Today I saw 3
what I thought at first to be bright silver balloons
flying past me. I couldn’t tell until I saw a friend
around the corner seeing what I saw. Sonya’s husband has
binocs out and said not balloons. One of them turned
upside down at one point. Then a 4th flew right above our
heads. It was the same bright silver, round with hollow
inside and lights around it. It wasn’t big so maybe 2-3
feet in width. And off it went into the distance. All 4
seemed to go off in different directions. If they were
drones, I would think they’d not be allowed because we
have an airport nearby. I don’t know much about drones but
these did not look like typical drones I’ve ever seen and
they didn’t make any noise. I’m very curious.
Unfortunately I didn’t have my phone with me to take pic
but there are 3 of us that saw the same thing. Any ideas?
I don’t know who to report this to. This occurred today
approx 1:15 pm.
Lillooet, BC: (around midnight)
July 14 2020, myself and 2 other friends were camping near
Lillooet, BC. At approximately 12am, we laid down to star
gaze. The night sky was clear and black. If you’ve ever
been to this area at night, you’ll know that there is
nearly zero light pollution. We could see the entire night
sky, including the glow of the Milky Way galaxy. As we
were looking for constellations, we noticed a couple
satellites moving through the sky and saw several shooting
later we all witnessed a strange light moving in the sky.
At first glance we believed it to be another satellite.
But as we watched the light, we noticed it move in a
strange pattern. It moved across the sky, then stopped
suddenly. It began to glow like a bright shining star,
then dimmed, then moved again in a different direction. It
did this a few times. Moving, then glowing, then dimming,
and moving again, in a zig-zag pattern. We watched the dim
light disappear into the sky.
wanted to share our story for a possible explanation or if
another person may have witness something similar.
Maple Ridge, BC: (11 pm)
am seeing small visible lights in sky tonight moving
around north to south and east to west. I phoned my cousin
and pointed them out and he also saw them. Clearly moving
around in different directions. Maybe a dozen or so of
them all over the sky.
for the report. Can you provide some more information as
to where you were at the time, and which direction you
are the lights doing? Did they just appear? Or did they
arrive from a particular direction?
Maple Ridge at around 11pm. I was looking south. Pretty
much north of the south horizon. I was star gazing and
then I saw one move. Small light. Then another move. Small
light. Sometimes they would emit a light or look blinking.
One started moving to North towards Whistler and I
followed it. Another started moving east. There must've
been like half dozen.
17/20-July-2020, Lone Butte, BC:
(after 11:55 pm)
and 6 friends were staying at a cabin up in Bridge Lake in
Lone Butte Canada from July 17-20 and witnessed lights in
the sky of different sizes and brightness and colours
every night after 11:55 pm. We saw some divide from one
light into three, hover and fly off. At one point two
crossed paths hovered and continued in different
directions, most of the sightings occurred crossing past
the Milky Way or that general viewpoint. From our vantage
point it seemed like they were the same size as the stars
and very far above us and would cross the entire skyline
moving in fast jerky movements, stopping and or shooting
off at a fast pace. We managed to capture one on a cell
phone, all you can see is a tiny dot moving across the
screen and even though there was a full sky of stars the
phone camera only shows the light which we though was
strange even at the time. Here’s the video we got of a
smaller one, we are convinced they were not bugs or
satellites. Would love to know if anyone else saw anything
that weekend. We enjoyed all the moments and it will
remain a magical memory for all of us.
22-July-2020, Vancouver, BC:
July 22nd, around 10 pm, we were standing
in an alley between 55 and 57 Street in the backyard of a
house on Knight Street. We were looking toward the
southern hemisphere at Jupiter and Saturn I believe. We
saw three red lights forming a triangle with a green
you describe what made the light appear to be something
out of the ordinary - what properties would lead you to
did the triangle do? Was there any solid structure making
up the object or just 3 lights?
feel free to write the entire event, and include any/all
details you can think of!
was with an old coworker sitting in the passenger seat of
his vehicle as I asked him to wait for me to reserve a car
online. While I’m doing this on my phone he starts
describing three lights... long story short I looked up
and saw three red lights in a a triangle form with an
intermittent green flash in the centre. I immediately got
out thinking could be a drone and said, "Let’s walk closer
to see if we can get a better view.", but after walking
one block we concluded it was too far away to get closer
so there was no visual other than lights. After observing
for about 30 seconds it literally slid across the sky like
it was on a slide rail and the distance it travelled had
to be pretty far because from our point of view it looked
like it was on the west of Jupiter and then after sliding
across the sky It appeared on the other side of Saturn.
Note we did not lose sight of it travelling across the
sky. It stayed in this location for about 60 seconds and
then it slid back to the original position for about two
more minutes then it slid halfway between those two
points, turned into a white light and look like it shot
off into the distance toward Jupiter. Disappearing within
two seconds it also turned into a white light as it shot
away. We went back the next night thinking we could see it
again but we saw nothing. My coworker said, "Google it. I
can’t believe we are the only ones who saw it." When I did
I found recent sightings on your website and a video that
somebody took on July 22. In that video it appeared to be
the same three red lights, however it did not move across
the sky like we saw it and some comments on your website
suggested it was a weather balloon but I think not!
25-July-2020, Surrey, BC:
(about 11:25 pm)
just saw a UFO July 25th 2020 around 11:25pm (not sure of
the exact time) flying over my house very slowly roughly
around these coordinates 49.043544, -122.797045 heading
east. At first I thought it was one of the brightest stars
but then I quickly realized it was moving. After about 20
seconds of watching it move with no sound a military
helicopter (almost positive it was one but remember it was
the middle of the night) came flying right towards object
lights on and everything. As soon as the chopper got
within 3000 meters or less (it was above my house at this
point) the object suddenly started moving faster and
faster until its light completely faded into the night
probably took about 15-20 seconds the light faded in about
5 seconds. The trajectory of the object looked to me as if
it left the atmosphere. I have never seen anything move so
fast and silently. After the light disappeared the chopper
quickly did a u-turn and during this, all the lights on
the chopper turned off only with about 1 light on after
the whole ordeal. I wish I would have recorded this event
but due to the nature of what I was seeing I came to the
conclusion I would not have enough time to run inside and
come back out because at first I thought it was a plane
(it is normal to see planes fly over my house daily). I am
contacting you because this is not the first time I have
seen an object over my house in my backyard but this is
the first time I have seen another aircraft follow one. I
also believe I am not the only one who witnessed this
event as when I checked google trends shortly after the
event there were over 100 google searches in my area on
the topic "Ufo sighting bc". I hope this information is of
use and if you do ever get any footage from July 25th 2020
in my area could you please forward it to me I cannot be
the only one in such a busy area.
Burnaby, BC: (10:15 pm)
just came across your page while googling UFO in Burnaby
because that is what I just witnessed. An object I can't
approximately 10:15pm this evening I noticed a bright
light moving from the north west over my home and over
towards the south east over central Burnaby. There was no
sound, only one very bright light and no flashing lights
like planes have. After about 30 seconds, the light
dimmed and was gone. There are no clouds in the sky and it
was moving slowly at first but picked up speed a bit. It
was quite high up and the light was brighter than any
aircraft I've seen and when it dimmed it was like the
battery of a flashlight was dying and it faded quickly. No
idea what this was.
Squamish, BC: (10:20 pm)
had a bright moon in Squamish, I went out on my balcony to
take a photo and realized that what looked like a star,
but bigger, was moving to the left. It flew over the Chief
and was gone. It didn't have anything flashing and was
quiet, it looked to be low but I couldn't really tell as
it flew over the mountain.
photos were taken at 10:21 pm on July 28th/2020 from
downtown Squamish, right across from the library.
Surrey, BC: (10:20 pm)
(July 30th) at approximately 10:20 PM I was in the
neighborhood of chimney heights in surrey bc looking at
the sky admiring Jupiter and Saturn so close in the sky
when I noticed a moving star that looked like the other
recent sightings on the site. It was moving slowly at
first till it started to pick up speed as it looked like
it was moving farther way till it just disappeared in the
middle of the sky like it left earth.
was approximately 500m from chimney hill elementary school
facing south toward Seattle staring at the planets until I
noticed the moving star which disappeared to the right of
Jupiter. I use an app to track the planets so I'm certain
about what I was looking at. Also 2 other people were with
me at the time of the sighting.
Hope, BC: (about 11 pm)
BC. No picture because moving extremely quick and caught
us by surprise. It was a very large oval of lights that
almost looked like it was trying to be transparent but one
unit appeared to the North above lake of the woods and
within a few seconds slid across the sky into behind the
mountain. A friend and I were both sitting talking looking
in that direction and when it appeared we stopped for a
second, both saw and watched, then I said "Did u just see
that too?" And my friend said, "Ya, that was fuckin
weird." We saw the same thing because she said Pan-shaped
lights and I said oval-shaped lights. Pretty much the same
time. The size compared to the mountain was the same as
the top portion and it very elegantly slid out of site
with no sound. Very quickly.
from Princeton BC. It seems every night I see a bright red
flashing light with a blue and white light at about 15
degrees above the northern horizon. It appears just after
dark in the same place and doesn’t move while I watch.
Last month during neowise watching I saw it the first time
and then it was in the south east at 20 degrees above the
horizon. It actually looks like a police car hovering in
know the local area is getting cell tower upgrades, could
it be you are seeing a newly installed beacon for air
traffic to notify them of the new towers being installed?
Victoria, BC: (4:39 am)
saw this go across the sky Aug 6th 2020 at 4:39am.
will also send a video of it. It was much larger than a
plane and made no noise.
you for the photos and video of that very interesting
object. Could you give us a brief description of the
timeline? What first brought your attention to it? What
direction were you facing? How much of the sky did it
traverse? How long did you watch it? How did you lose
sight of it? Did it fade away as the sky got brighter? Did
it go behind a tree/building?
One puzzling aspect, some photos show the object angling
from from low on the left to high on the right, but other
photos show it angled the opposite direction. Did it
change its angle, or did some of the images get reversed?
was outside having my coffee at 4:35am looking at the
stars (facing West at 5042 Wesley Rd) when I noticed the
object and began watching it for about 1min before I
started photographing it.
I took 4 photos in about 1min time frame and then started
the recording that lasted 1 min 46 sec. In that recording
it was West of me heading East toward the sunrise. That is
why its angle changed as it passed almost over me heading
East towards Mount Baker with no noise (I live in a very
quiet area) In the beginning of the video it disappeared
behind a large Fir tree for a few seconds.
After I stopped recording, I took a few more photos
(facing East) as It disappeared out of my site due to the
distance and brightness (close to Mount Baker). In total
it took about 5-6 min from first site to out of site.
now I am a little embarrassed. I believe what you have
photographed and filmed is a tight group of SpaceX
Starlink satellites! At that time of day (on Aug 7, not
Aug 6) they could be seen travelling from WNW to ENE. They
were so tightly packed that they looked like 1 solid
object. Here is another view from Fort Worth, Texas last
January, where they were spread out a bit more - SpaceX.
Aldergrove, BC: (10 pm)
Hello I’m in BC exactly between Aldergrove and Langley. Me
and my girlfriend saw a bright red light moving west to
east. At her family’s house. Saturday 10pm. South of my
location. Came into view, solid red light moving straight.
No sound and it was so bright and not blinking so we
started watching it. Kinda zigged, it went behind the
house so we walked around, couldn’t find it for a second
then it appeared in the same area going the same way. So I
quickly grabbed my binoculars, we’re going camping so I
have them handy. Looked at it for 10 seconds before it
disappeared behind a tree in the front yard. (It was just
a single bright light. Moving.) So we walked to our left
10 steps to see it again and it was gone. Totally gone, it
should have been right there. We stood silent and could
hear the next plane going by. But they all blink and are
not as bright as this thing was. Other people on this site
seem to explain the same thing. Hoping we can figure it
Abbotsford: (about 10 pm)
response to the attached report (see "8-Aug-2020,
Aldergrove" above). My husband saw the
same phenomenon around the same time from one of our
bedroom windows. He saw 4 different objects flying around
in circles towards the North of Abbotsford. He then woke
me up and when I looked there were only 2 objects,
appeared to have 3 bright white lights and 1 red light. It
wasn't anything like a plane. We live in the country side
and it is pretty quiet. There was no sound from these
objects and were roughly not more than 500 feet from
ground. I witnessed it for about close to 10 minutes. I
unfortunately didn't think of making a video as I was in
such an awe to watch the whole thing live. I have never
observed anything like it before.
Surrey, BC: (about 11:30 pm)
Last night August 10th 2020 around 11:30pm, I noticed a
red light flash for about a second and a half. Then
about 10 seconds later I saw a white light flash but it
was a little further away to the left and then I saw a
white flash very dim a little further away again and then
nothing seen after the total of 3 flashes.
was observed from around King George Highway and 108th
Avenue (North Surrey) I was looking in the South part of
the sky when I saw this so these flashes would have been
South of Surrey Central. I would not have submitted
this except others have seen something similar over last
Sooke, BC: (around 7:30 pm)
am a ten year old girl and I am using my dads email
address. I believe I have seen a UFO. It looked like a
silver shining flying disk. It was about 200 feet off the
ground. I looked at my family to say look look but when I
turned back around and it was gone. I know this sounds
crazy but I know I saw it. It was not a plane or a
helicopter or a satellite. It was different. This is her
dad it appeared behind our backyard around 730 pm aug 14th
in sooke bc near the ocean.
Port Moody, BC: (11:30 pm)
friend and I were both looking at Saturn. This was the
second time within about 20 minutes. This time we noticed
a light similar in brightness to Saturn. It was
stationary, relatively close, and located
directly above. No flashing lights, no odd colours. It
began to slowly move upwards and instantly disappeared
within a few seconds.
North Burnaby, BC: (11:45 pm)
was visiting friends in the North Burnaby area when I
stepped out on the balcony to get some air. The
evening was completely clear, not a cloud in the sky;
looking straight out from the balcony I was facing north
and a bit west (N 345). I looked up to check out the
stars and really couldn’t see any because my eyes hadn’t
quite adjusted and of course the typical light pollution
didn’t help. Looking straight up I scanned the sky
directly above me and noticed a bright light above me in
the north and slightly east sky; for a better
understanding, looking straight up, the light was just to
my right, or slightly east (NE 50).
first I thought it was a very bright star because it
wasn’t moving, no red, blue or flashing lights so I ruled
out a plane. I’ve seen the SpaceX satellites and
space station, which have a trajectory, so I ruled those
out. When I say bright, I mean it was brighter and
larger than Venus has been over this past year, that’s why
at first I thought it was a plane. As I watched, the
light slowly started to fade, seem to grow smaller as if
moving away, and eventually it completely
disappeared. I kept scanning the northern sky from
east to west for another 10 minutes to see if the light
appeared anywhere else, but I saw nothing.
seen similar phenomenon on 4 separate occasions in the
past 10-years; I think I’m looking at a bright star and it
disappears. In two cases they have appeared as a
bright star for a period of seconds, then slowly dim
out. On the other two occasions the light has been
steady, become brighter and larger, and then quickly
disappears as if an exploding star. In every case
these objects are stationary.
New Westminster, BC: (9:25 pm)
swear to god on my life this was a once in a lifetime
thing. Last night August 15 2020 around 9:25 or so I was
sitting having a cigarette and noticed a very very bright
light to my left (it was flashing like a plane except
there was only the bright light on no other colors). At
first I thought it was a plane but, as I watched it, it
wasn't moving like one. It would be in one spot and blink
then a second later be in a different place it seemed to
move sporadic but did not move forward. I got up to
take a closer look and a flash of light went by me over my
head to the left. I then watched the sky and to my right
about 3 minutes later I saw a light in the shape of a 3d
box. It was on a slanted position it looked to be about 50
meters in length it started at one point then grew in to a
box then collapsed from back to front in a split second.
It illuminated the cloud very slightly. It looked
like something going in to another dimension it took me a
few hours to fall to sleep after that. I have never seen
anything like that before......any suggestions on what I
Chilliwack, BC: (around 9:30 pm)
and I witnessed an object that would glow brilliantly and
slowly pulsate into dim red. The object came into my
vision flying SSE towards the airport then suddenly jerked
towards north and flew over nw and went down behind the
mountain. The object did not fly straight at all, the best
i can describe its flight is as weightless, flies like its
rocket propelled, yet it was able to quickly descend
falling side to side like a feather. No sound at all, flew
faster than anything I've ever seen, it defies logic, no
human could withstand the forces. Entire sighting lasted
close to 30 seconds. I saw a bright star on Friday (Aug
14) next to Jupiter and I logged Skyview, looked down for
a sec and the star was gone. That experience is the reason
I was looking up last night. Many aircraft were in the sky
all over the area so surely one pilot must have seen
Vancouver, BC: (8 pm)
evening around 8pm I was sitting on my balcony. It was
still daylight, so when I looked to the sky and saw a very
bright light I knew it was something strange. I asked my
roommate to come take a look and sure enough the light
became brighter and began to move, first vertically, then
horizontally, then in a very sporadic manner. It veered
off to the right and the light inverted, turned into a
tiny black dot and sailed off to the north.
an hour later I was sitting in my bedroom with the blinds
drawn and felt the same light, back in the same area of
the sky shining through my window. This was a very bright
and large object. We managed to capture a video this time.
twenty minutes after the object disappeared behind the
building a very low flying plane came and circled the area
about a half dozen times.
Burnaby, BC: (10:20 pm)
I live in North Burnaby BC and got a call from a friend of
mine on August 17th of a red bright dot in the sky that
got his attention to the point he called his family out to
see. The red pinkish light disappeared then came
back and disappeared again. I went to look around in the
location as I was driving home and didn’t see anything. On
the return home I saw a red light blinking faintly near
North Vancouver. My friend had seen it to the east 15
minutes prior. The next day on August 18th I got a call
from another friend saying they saw this red pinkish dot
near north Burnaby that seemed to warp off leaving a trail
of pink light when it shot. Anyways here’s my video not
sure if it’s the same light they reported but I saw this
over North Vancouver bridge.
20-Aug-2020, Chilliwack, BC:
I live in Chilliwack BC, and on Aug 20th, 2020 at 11:00PM.
I went out on the porch and suddenly there was a
huge bright orange light, high in the SE sky, kinda over
Cultus Lake area. It was big, then slowly faded to
nothing, then again appeared. Never seen anything like it.
Surely others must have witnessed this. Here is a still
image and a video (shortened by UFO*BC):
28-Aug-2020, Chilliwack, BC:
was out on my deck taking pictures of the moon when this
object suddenly passed in front of me. My impression was:
large, quiet, no noise, cigar-shaped, light front and
back, no wings or wheels/ landing gear, no tail. One
light in front and one in the back, seemed to be one unit.
I thought glider but no wings.
could it be?
NOTE: Further information from the witness
indicates the videos were taken in Chilliwack around 9:26
pm on August 28, facing south.]
3-Sep-2020, Langley, BC:
wanted to send in 3 pictures of an object I saw in the
middle of the day at about 215pm on September 3rd 2020. I
live at 209 and 78B ave in Langley BC.
was a clear day no clouds and I was on my rooftop patio
enjoying the sun. I looking at the mountains in the north
east when suddenly this white object appeared very high in
the sky. This isn't the first time I have scene something
strange in the sky at this address. 2 weeks before this I
saw a silver object in the sky but it was too far for my
camera on my phone to pick up.
first I thought it might be a drone but it was just too
high in the sky. The weird thing is that it just hovered
in the sky for a good 10-12 min not moving, then started
to come closer to me. It went right above me and then to
the east, and finally just disappeared. I have a Samsung
s20 and it has 30x zoom on it. I was able to catch 3
pictures at 30x zoom, which is max zoom. If you zoom in on
it, It looks like a square box with some kind of white
circular field around it. I am absolutely baffled at what
it could be. Like I said it was really high in the sky
definitely not a plane or a drone. I am very curious what
you think it might be.
you for your time. Cheers.
NOTE: Pictures were almost identical - only 1
the date range is similar (and they were in the area) this
is likely what you caught:
note, ensure you aren’t using digital zoom on your camera,
as it isn’t gaining anything, but only cropping. You need
to rely on the optical zoom.
Chilliwack, BC: (8:33 pm)
west when a light appeared in the sky, it moved quickly
and erratically for a few seconds before vanishing. I
reached for my phone and recorded the sky a bit north and
the light appeared again, stayed stationary a moment
before disappearing. Skylink comes through this area at
this time but its not visible at 8:33, moves straight, and
is never stationary.
Surrey. BC: (5:30 pm)
your knowledge did a large high altitude weather balloon
drift over North Delta and Surrey, moving from west to
east, this afternoon around 5:30 pm?
know that UBC does release them from time to time, so
although it is possible, the timing is a bit late. Weather
balloons are usually released early in the morning to get
the thermals to allow to gain altitude, and by 5pm, they
would be far past the lower mainland.
for your reply. My son and I went on the Internet and
narrowed our sighting down to a Project Loon balloon at
roughly 50,000 feet altitude.
I've flown thousands of hours and released weather
balloons but this object had us stumped.
Project Loon is operated by Google and its parent company
5-Sep-2020, Horseshoe Bay, BC:
in Horseshoe Bay with my husband last weekend and took a
few pictures of a ferry coming in to dock. When reviewing
the pictures we found a strange object in one of the
photos which was not noticed when the picture was taken.
It is a black object to the left of the ferry, center of
the picture. Seems too large to be a bird. Any idea what
it could be?
you mean this object:
is a crow, flying close to the camera, going from right to
left. Both wings are in the downward position, head and
beak are clearly visible to the left and tail on the
did you mean another part of the photo?
and fraser st Vancouver bc I took a walk to the Chevron on
main and 41st left my house at approximately 4:13am to
return at about 4:35 am when I had noticed a bright light
in the sky walking eastbound on 41st. this light was
brighter than any thing else that had occupied the sky at
this time which the ISS had just passed by us as well but
this light was still brighter and seemed lower as well as
2closer than anything and there's no way it was a
helicopter nor was it a plane. Upon arriving near my house
I decided I wanted to get a better look at the object so
me and my wife proceeded to head towards the memorial park
on 41st and prince albert where we witnessed the object
hovering as well reposition itself to stay with in our
eyesight. No craft I know of would be able to maneuver
like this thing had been able too as it moved in a lateral
motion whilst maintain height in a strafe like motion. As
soon as we seen the craft start to moved towards our
direction which it was moving at a good paced we started
to head back home but not before taking cover from this
things line of vision which then it had moved higher to
see over the trees and was once again in our view.
Thinking that the craft was noticing us we took evasive
action in order to break the line of sight just to see if
it had been fallowing us or had been watching us . it
stuck with us the whole way not once breaking the line of
sight between us and them. It seemed to have either a
sting of lights in a triangular or some sort of circular
pattern surrounding the craft also there was not a sound
at all coming for the object. I'm not sure what it had
been but I can honestly say it was no plane nor helicopter
and sure as hell was no drone. Someone must have gotten a
look at this light as well and so I'm hoping you have the
answer to what the hell this thing was or is.
sure saw a UFO in Victoria bc it was flying so fast
changing colors sorry about the picture you can barley see
it's like blue tho
for the report, but we will need a bit more details to
help clarify the report:
When did this happen?
Where in Victoria were you?
What direction were you facing?
What direction was the object/light moving?
What brought it to your initial attention?
What did the object do?
How long did the sighting last?
big orangeish tinted light in the sky Northeast direction.
I've been watching it for like 10-15 minutes now and it's
moving in a slight hovering motion remaining in the same
area. Its currently 11:45 pm September 9 2020. My
boyfriend suggested that it may be a drone but it looks
way too big and bright.. and the color of it doesn't seem
drone-like to me.
for the report.
first thing we like to check is if it could be a natural
phenomena. Last night Capella was smack dab in the NE sky
around the 11:45 mark, at the top left from the moon (see
image below). Given that the object was remaining in the
same area, I suspect you may have been looking at Capella
as it is the 6th brightest star in our night sky. The
orange look is almost certainly due to the smoke from the
forest fires in the US (which is clouding up our skies
here in Vancouver).
this helps clear up the mystery and glad you can enjoy the
lovely evening skies this time of year!
Lake Cowichan, BC:
hoping you can explain what I saw twice yesterday. I
visited Cowichan Lake Tube Shack on September 10,
I entered the water on my tube at 4:47pm. Around 5:00pm I
was just floating while looking up in the sky to the east
I think and saw what appeared to be a hang glider way up
high in a cloudless sky. It banked in a counter-clockwise
fashion and then seemed to change into what looked like a
falling blanket comprised of four petals. Then it seemed
to fade away. Not sure if moved away at high speed, or
disintegrated, or cloaked? It was yellow.
few moments later, the same thing happen to the right of
the first one, this time white.
If you hold your arms out up in the sky about a foot
apart, that would be the visible distance way up in the
sky, not sure how far that actually is. All this occurred
at the max physical unaided viewable distance up in the
this some sort of cloud reflection of water vapour
appearing then disappearing on a hot day?
you for being there, I was not sure who to ask about this.
honestly haven’t heard of that – it may have been some
type of gliders, but I would think you’d see a parachute
or similar system if it were dropping anything (as they
could harm whomever they fell on).
know that Google has been sending high altitude balloons
over Vancouver in the last week or so, so perhaps that is
what you managed to see?
keep digging and let you know if we come across any
reasonable explanation to what you saw!
for the report.
20-Sep-2020, Richmond, BC:
20th, 2020 8:28pm - Richmond, BC
family and I were in our backyard having a wiener roast
when something drew my attention to the sky. It was
a very bright ball of light moving rapidly across the sky.
We were facing South and the object was moving from the SW
to the NE. The object appeared to be a bright yellowish
orange ball of light and moved with purpose. The object
appeared to be within our atmosphere and was moving
extremely quickly at a steady pace towards the NE.
The object then took a hard right and moved East,
disappearing shortly after.
Object made no sound or projected any emissions.
suspect what you saw was the ISS or International Space
was visible at exactly that time here in Vancouver (Sun
Sep 20, 8:23 PM)
actually saw that at approximately the same time outside
our atmosphere. The object in question was at a much
lower altitude and changed it's direction quite
abruptly. The ISS, if I'm not mistaken, follows a
consistent path like a satellite.
– so you saw them at the same time. Very interesting. Yes
the ISS’s “flightpath” is straight from horizon to
in comparison to speed of ISS vs object, how do they
relate? How about luminosity?
said “moved with purpose” I mistakenly assumed you meant a
straight line (as in going towards a specific destination
rather than meandering about). Can you elaborate more on
what gave it purpose? It is an interesting choice of words
and I am very curious as to what you mean by it.
is always difficult to express one’s sighting into words,
especially as those words can and often are taken in the
wrong context, so I appreciate your patience in be trying
to get to the bottom of it.
ISS appeared to move exactly like a satellite with all the
same attributes but brighter.
object the 5 of us viewed was much larger, brighter,
closer, and moved quite quickly.
I said "moved with purpose" perhaps an intelligence. It
wasn't just a random light or natural phenomenon in the
sky going for a Sunday drive. At times it seemed like it
slowed down almost like when you're looking for a place to
park in a crowed parking lot.
then accelerated, took a hard right East and disappeared.
Vancouver, BC: (12:37 am)
Vancouver, near Main and Marine Dr. Looking almost
directly up, turned south from our top floor balcony. In
September 23, 2020.
I wasn’t able to get either a photo or a video, but at
around 12:37am today I was looking at the sky as it is the
Autumn Equinox and I celebrate it. While looking almost
straight up there was a bright orange light. At first I
thought it was a drone but it would have been high enough
or even higher for an airplane’s max altitude. It was
silent (from what I could tell) and the orange was smooth
and not really flashing. It definitely was circular and
large, almost the size of a full moon. I was only able to
see the exact bottom from what it looks like and it seemed
there was a smaller circle inside the large one. It was
moving too fast for a drone or a light on a plane, and for
a second it seemed like another appeared before both
seemed to blink out of view or vanish. It only lasted
about a minute and before I thought to take a photo it was
Nanaimo, BC: (9:20 pm)
morning, I was looking on the internet and listening to
the morning news this morning to see if anyone else had
commented on or observed the two very bright flashing
lights that I observed around 60 degrees North East, on
the evening of November 6. They appeared to stay static
for about 5 minutes from the po
