22-Feb-2016, Abbotsford, BC:
wife and I (color-blind) saw an elongated yellow/white object that was
being circled by a smaller object in the southern night sky. This went
on for several hours. This could not have been an airplane given the
stationary position of the larger object and the circling of it by the
smaller one. The distance from our observation point in Abbotsford, BC,
to these lights was also much higher, I believe, than that of an
airplane. In addition, we spotted two more bright objects that were
stationary and close to the larger object. Airplanes do not remain in
one spot no matter how high they fly. We can not account for these
objects and their activities.
saw 4 groups of inexplicable, multi-colored lights that were flashing
and moving around the object. They were more or less stationary, with
some up & down movement, in a square formation on a plane at an
angle. The one closest to us was the lowest one. It was a clear night,
but clouds started to move in, & we couldn't see them anymore.
6-Mar-2016, Abbotsford, BC: (8:45 pm)
6, 2016 at approximately 8:45pm over Highway 1 at Whatcom Road in
Abbotsford...a sighting of a ufo. It looked like a large sheet of red,
white and blue lights. Imagine a huge sheet of plywood (about 20 meters
by 20 meters) hovering above the traffic, moving very slowly. There was
little or no sound from it. About 80 meters high in the air. It then
disappeared near Sumas Mountain. This lasted about one minute as we
were driving east in the rain.
Have there been any other reports of this kind?
Thanks for your time and consideration.
9-Mar-2016, Vancouver, BC: (6:35 am)
was driving to yoga yesterday morning along Broadway heading East
towards Renfrew. The sun was rising in the distance and as I was
driving I noticed an illuminated bright orange spot in cloud and then
it illuminated itself out of the cloud and shot straight up. I was
driving but I grabbed my phone and hit record and when I looked back it
was gone. I am wondering if anybody else reported seeing this?
am wondering if it could be a UFO that would normally not be visible
but because of the sun rising it illuminated it to look like a fireball.
13/14-Jun-2015, Cowichan. BC: (about 2 am)
was sitting on my balcony in North Cowichan, BC when I looked up to
look at the stars above my house facing east and saw the brightest
"star" I have ever seen. It looked like an airplane lights facing
straight at me but the light wasn't moving. I went to open the camera
on my phone to take a picture of it and it flew away!!! No sound, no
flashing lights, no trail behind it. It flew faster than anything I
have ever seen. It flew in a straight line until it was almost out of
sight within about 2 seconds and then it flew to the left and then
quickly back to the right for a second and disappeared.
next night I came out and was looking up when I started watching
something to my far left field of view I thought was a satellite, but
realized it was way too fast and bright to be a satellite. It crossed
my entire field of view (almost a 180 degree view) within about 5
seconds. Again there was no sound accompanying this object.
These two bright fast moving lights were unlike anything I have seen in
the sky at night and I spend hours upon hours watching the stars. I
live near an airport and along helicopter routes to hospitals. I know
the sounds that come from regular aircraft and I know even very far
away and high up you can hear some sound. These were both close enough
to be heard but it was dead silent.
I can't say what I saw, but I can say I have never seen anything like it before in my life.
16-Mar-2016, Surrey, BC: (10:35 pm) (near 176 Street and Fraser Hwy)
evening around 10:35 pm I noticed an airplane flying in the distance
over a treeline from my bedroom window. The lights were odd as they
flashed between red, white and blue but later switched to a solid very
bright white. It moved unlike an airplane or helicopter. It could hover
or change direction on a dime. I watched for 2 minutes as it flew a
strange pattern, then ran to get my husband to look. He watched and
agreed that it likely was a ufo, however it was no big deal to him.
What caught me off guard was that it changed direction and flew towards
me. It flew directly over my house, quite high. It's not a drone, plane
or helicopter. It looked to be more triangular in shape and completely
silent as it flew past. It was a seemingly full size aircraft.
Hopefully I never see it again. A good set of blackout curtains will
make sure. Good luck to anyone else trying to figure it out. I for one
am not a fan. Memory wipe please!
16-Mar-2016, Nanaimo, BC:
husband saw a large bright light in the sky, almost like a spotlight.
He told me to come out and I looked at it. By the time I got out the
object got smaller, but still really bright. I noticed soon after a red
flashing light on it - small, but noticeable. The object moved closer
and faster in the sky. It looked like a helicopter or plane-like object
but it had lights only on one side of it and when it flew over it moved
faster than normal and made no sound. Before we knew it, the object had
disappeared. I heard the other day about strange lights in the sky so
this isn't the first time this week that strange objects have been seen
in Nanaimo. The mystery continues...
17-Mar-2016, Burnaby, BC: (00:10 am) (facing Surrey)
Extremely bright light with the height of about 20 something floors building.
Additional Witness Information:
I sent message to you last night when I saw UFO.
Time：Mar 16, 2016 around 2320-0020 PST
position was close to Metrotown Skytrain Station, looking at the
direction towards Surrey across Fraser River. Extremely bright light
obviously seen at the height of about 25th floors building. It just
stayed there for more than an hour. 3 people in my family had witnessed
See attached pictures, never edit.
2, Picture at 0200. Disappeared.
3, Shows there is nothing around that area during daytime.
19-Mar-2016, Armstrong, BC: (1:00 am)
fire outside. We saw two super bright yellow flashes over top of the
mountain and then our stereo which was playing the radio shut off for
about 3 seconds and then came back on.
22-Mar-2016, Parksville, BC: (8:30ish pm)
on rathtrevor beach in parksville, myself and another person observed
lights dimming and brightening while hovering over an unknown island
location between nanoose and nanaimo...first 1 , then 2, then after a
while a third ....they moved side to side and up and down eventually
forming a triangle for a couple minutes then dimming out till only 1
remained...the one that remained moved side to side rapidly then lower
just above the island eventually moving upward and dimming out...they
were there for over an hour ...sometimes flashing between red and
white lights ...the way the lights were they didn't resemble planes or
helicopters as they were solid and wide. Though there is/was someone
missing since sun in the area on gabriola island but I don't know if
you can see that far from parksville. The lights seemed to large to be
helicopters over nanaimo's islands.
Additional Witness Information:
to my report... We saw the lights over "Mistaken Island" off from
Nanoose....we definitely couldn't see all the way to nanaimo from where
13-Mar-2016, Courtenay, BC: (5:30 am)
husband and I were sitting on our deck at about 5:30 in the morning.
Our deck faces west with a panoramic view of the Comox glacier and
Beaufort mountains. The moon was bright enough to let us see the
outline of small clouds over the glacier. We noticed a very bright
white light that was travelling up in a vertical line from where we
first saw it above Comox Lake or the glacier. It continued going up and
disappeared through a low cloud. When it was visible above the cloud,
it was one bright light and three more bright lights trailing behind.
We watched them rise up until we couldn't see them anymore. This all
took place within 2 minutes. The lights in the sky went from about 2000
feet to 10,000 feet and traveling straight up. We have tried to
understand what we saw. Particularly peculiar was the direction of
travel. We have seen jets, helicopters, satellites, and none have
ever travelled up, most things move across the night sky, not up.
We would like to know what we saw.
2013, Thornhill, BC:
My name is Angela and I witnessed an unusual event in the sky a few
years back in 2013. I was living in Thornhill, B.C. at the time, the
quiet outskirts of Terrace, and was sky watching from my patio. Living
in Northern B.C. all my life I have seen some interesting things in the
sky, so sky watching has always been a night hobby. Thornhill is fairly
remote with little to no light pollution in certain areas.
saw over the treeline a bright object about 2 times the size of a
passing satellite. It was heading left to right in front of the big
dipper slowly and silently. It came to a near halt, then off to the far
left I saw a second object of the same size heading in the same
direction as the first one. It looked like it was trying to catch up to
the first object. When the second object got near to the first,
the original object sped off quickly in a checkmark shaped fashion,
very quickly then disappeared. The second object continued left to
right faster than before then disappearing as well, fading out rather than the quick exit of the first.
was left amazed at what I had seen. I feel lucky to have experienced
this and thanks to sites like yours it is wonderful to be able to
explain this experience to non judgemental ears. I truly appreciate
your site. If you have any questions about my experience feel free to
Thanks very much for your time,
1-Apr-2016, Salmon Arm, BC: (11:51 pm)
11:51pm thereabouts in April 1st we (4 of us) witnessed a bright
yellowish light that looked like a flare travelling from the east to
the south. It was brighter than anything else in the sky. It looked as
though it was a very bright flare but huge and eventually started
heading off to the south while trying to get pictures of it
unfortunately all of our pictures look like you're bright moon because
we couldn't get a Camera aperture that could take an exposure that
would register it properly. We have one picture that gives a little bit
of the flair to it and also had a trail behind it and it was nothing
like any of us who are very avid stargazers for fun have ever seen
before. Extremely strange. Over salmon arm bc.
2-Apr-2016, Surrey, BC: (6:10 to 6:30 pm)
Daylight/Clear. I noticed a very bright light coming from the west,
towards me (East). The bright light was extremely high in altitude.
Probably around 50-60,000 thousand feet in elevation. The object was a
small as a star doubled in size and was shimmering. I watched it as it
got closer. It kept it's elevation approximately the same as it was in
my view. The object's speed seemed at a steady pace but not fast.
I told my partner what I was seeing and he looked up and saw it too. I
went into the house and brought out my binoculars. The object now was
going left, towards the north. It then hovered. I was able to see the
object fairly clearly. I saw a round shaped ring. The ring was a dark
silver colour that was spinning counter clockwise very fast. Above the
spinning ring looked like numerous bright gold flames of light shooting
upwards. I could see spaces in-between each section of the gold lights.
The inside top of the ring was a dark thin layer of black. What amazed
me was the ring was spinning but the gold bright flame lights were not.
Just the ring below it was spinning, while the bright gold lights were
monetary in movement.
passenger airplane then flew underneath it at it's approximately
30-35,000 feet. I then saw the two objects compared to each other and
realized how large this UFO actually would be. It would be roughly the
size of a stadium or football field.
6:15pm- I called our local news radio and reported it.
I called our local R.C.M.P. and reported it. I was then transferred to
another officer to repeat what I was seeing. They seemed to be
extremely interested on what was happening.
I videotaped the object with my cell phone and was able to get a few
seconds of footage. The UFO was now traveling eastward. It then looked
like it went higher and went out of view. A few seconds later, it came
back into view and continued eastward for about six seconds then went
out of view completely.
I received a call from the R.C.M.P. They wanted to come over and talk
more on what I had seen. They arrived within minutes and interviewed me
on what I had seen. They created a file and I received a file number on
this was, it was not a weather balloon, satellite or plane. The
altitude was too high for any object like that to travel through. Also
the pattern was too indifferent to be a regular craft that we know.
Also, it was too slow to be any type of comet, specially when viewed
through the binoculars, it was not asteroid material.
3-Apr-2016, Vancouver, BC: (1:30 to 2:00 am)
am up reading and looked out my window at 1:30 am .....it is now 2:00am
and I still see the lights in the same place....hovering over Vancouver
BC. The lights are pinkish and a very light whitish blue. They
seem to pulsate and expand at times so the circle looks bigger.... At
times it seems like the circle is stretched like an elastic band.
It seems closer at times and distant at others.
It is still there. Has anyone else reported?
4-Apr-2016, Ladner, BC: (11 pm)
a bright orange orb like a fireball in the sky moving slowly over a
field near the entrance to the Massey Tunnel. Stopped the car and
watched it with my daughter for a few minutes, then kept our eyes on it
the rest of the drive home until the road turned away. Got my husband
and came back out to find it again but it had gone. Very curious!!
1-Apr-2016, Surrey, BC: (9:00 pm)
was looking towards the south when I saw a tear-drop shaped object
travelling from the east. The rounded front was a blue colour, the
middle third was a maroon colour and the tail was orange! Very strange.
After a few seconds it just disappeared.
6-Apr-2016, Surrey, BC: (12:45)
were outside when my boyfriend noticed something in the sky, saying
"What is that? It can't be a plane or helicopter." It got closer. It
obviously wasn't [a plane or a helicopter]. It was way too small and
low. It had a bright orange light.
3-Apr-2016, Coquitlam, BC: (12:39 am)
Saturday April 2 a few friends and I were at the local pub named
Roose... We came outside to have a cigarette, when one of my friends
says what is that!!!?!? I look up in the sky and immediately think it's
a nice big shooting star because of the speed it was flying at. Then I
noticed that it came under the clouds and levelled out and continued
flying with a slight right turn and disappeared off in the distance.
Both my friend and I looked at each other in shock when we realized we
both saw the same thing. It looked like a ball of light or a big orb
about the size of a 747, maybe a bit smaller, but it was hard to tell
at night, but I'm judging from the distance of the clouds. Did anybody
else see this?
7-Apr-2016, Victoria, BC: (9:18 pm)
live a few blocks away from the ocean at Dallas Road in Victoria BC, in
a south-facing apartment. Me and my girlfriend were relaxing on my
couch tonight, when I noticed an orange light rising into the sky in
the distance. The colour alone caught my attention, seeming different
from the usual airplane lights, but then we noticed another similar
light following below it and then another. After a few seconds of
movement, all three came to a stop and hovered for about a minute,
resting in a wedge formation, then disappeared one after the other. I
got the impression that there were three separate vessels as opposed to
a single large craft. I got it on video with my phone, but the quality
is pretty bad as my phone's camera is not good in low light conditions.
Neither of us had ever seen anything like that before.
March 1992, between Rutland and Beacerdell, BC: (evening)
of all this experience was so long ago the date is extremely
approximate. It has bothered me for a long time and having just found
this site, I was eager to share my experience. I used to travel
regularly through Rutland on hwy 33 to Rock Creek and return as part of
my job. One evening while returning towards Rutland from Rock Creek I
encountered something very odd along a very desolate road. Traffic was
near non-existent, but at one point I saw a very intense glow of light
which appeared off in the distance. It didn't appear to be airborne,
but rather on the ground and covering a large area. This was a winding
section of this mountainous highway so the glow would occasionally be
obstructed. I believed the light was coming from an area that I
believed was uninhabited. I was so perplexed and was trying to
comprehend what it was as I was approaching closer to the apparent
source when suddenly and without warning I lost all power in my car.
The engine died and every dash light illuminated. I had just enough
time to panic when the dash lights went out and then just as suddenly I
was again under full power! At this point I am very concerned, still
wondering what the light is coming from but also suddenly concerned for
my vehicle condition. Well maintained, fairly new and no history of
problems and the situation never replicated itself. Pretty freaked out
at this point and no way was I going to stop and try to figure out the
light source. As I passed the general area of the light I would
estimate the light was possibly a kilometre or two off road in what
appeared to be heavy woods although I never actually saw it, just the
glow. I was now beyond the light and watched in my rear view mirror
until it was no longer in my field of vision. Trying to rationalize
what it was and I couldn't. Thought maybe Ski hill night skiing but
drove the highway many times and never saw it before or since.
9-Apr-2016, Cloverdale, BC: (9:50 pm)
evening at approximately 9:50 pm I saw a strange object in the sky
traveling west to east. I just moved into the cloverdale area with my
family and was taking a break on the front porch and saw a ball of
bright white light about the size of a tictac held at a distance. It
was much larger and brighter than any of the surrounding stars. It
traveled west to east and vanished overhead, like just disappeared. The
light didn't blink like a plane, or have a trail like something burning
up in the atmosphere, it was solid and very bright. I thought it might
have been the quad copter I saw 2 days prior but that had flashing red
and green lights. This was nothing like that.
I've seen a lot of things in the night sky, but never something like that.
29-Mar-2016, Langford, BC: (10:30 pm)
took my dogs for a walk up behind my house in a dark field. I happened
to look up in a south west direction and I saw what I believe was a low
flying cloaked ship. The sighting only happened for about 3 seconds, it
came into view on my left and then disappeared. The only thing you
could see were what I believed to be the propusion system? They
were about 5-7 purple and faint pink chevrons. They appeared the
be seamless and did not independently move. It was absolutley silent
and moving in a east to west direction. It was about 30M off the ground
and moving about 60-80 kmh.
20-Apr-2016, North Vancouver, BC: (11:30 pm)
noticed the very bright light about 11:30pm. I recognized it as I saw
and reported it earlier this month. I live in North Vancouver. I am
looking south. It moved very slowly across the sky...like the speed
would be a crawl at times and almost stop. I could tell it was moving
because it passed clouds. It also was closer at times and then would
rise. It disappeared above the clouds for awhile. It is back again but
more distant now and stationary. There is a full moon. It seems to be
light pink and pale blue lights when it is closer and more like a
bright white light as it moves to a higher position. It is still there
now 12:40am - stationary and distant.
29-Apr-2016, Surrey, BC: (10 pm)
am interested to know if any other people in Surrey saw what I saw last
night at approximately 10:00 pm on a southeast to northwest trajectory.
night (Friday, April 29th) at about 10:00 pm., I happened to look out
our back window and saw 2 bright objects in the sky approaching our
house at a slight angle.
continued to watch from the window trying to understand what I was
seeing. They were at the same height and basically side by side with
some good but undefineable distance between them. They were very orange
in color with some slight hint of red. As they approached I was
wondering what they were as they made no sound and looked like 2
independent flames in the sky. They were coming as if 2 slow flying
aircraft until they came to a complete stop in the sky above and
slightly in front of me. Their height I could not determine, but at
this point they appeared the size of nearby street lights, so they were
fairly easy to see. However, their appearance was still like burning
flames in the sky, and very bright. I was trying to distinguish a form
within the flame and went for my binoculars. When I returned there was
only one remaining in the sky in the same spot. It looked exactly the
same through binoculars and was impossible to see any form within the
bright fire appearance. It sat there for a while longer and then faded
with a slight fragmenting appearance as the light went dark.
have had occasion in my 68 years to see occasional ufos at some
distance, and in a field outside of Edmonton, Alberta many years ago,
but nothing gets your attention like 2 flaming objects stationary in
the sky before you, and large enough to see that they cannot be defined.
would love to hear back on this and particularly from anybody else who
saw the same thing. I should add, that strangely, there were no visible
aircraft or sounds of aircraft anywhere else in the vicinity at the
time. I say this because we seem to be pretty much on a flightpath all
day and night, and the sky isnít usually devoid of aircraft or the
sounds of same for very long, and I was watching them for probably
about 10 minutes.
