31-May-2016, Vancouver, BC: (around midnight)
have a video I would love to send to you guys as well, it's about a
minute long. There were about 7 or 8 orb like lights, orange/red in
color hovering over the ocean over sunset beach. They were moving in
strange patterns, going up and down and back and forth. They were
incredibly bright and would rise up, very high and then fade out. Some
would sink low and fade out. The whole event went on for about 20
minutes with various orb like objects appearing, moving around the sky
in strange patterns and then fading out. Can't explain it and would
love someone to take a look at the video and let me know what they
think. It was truly breathtaking.
Mid-Feb-2016, Nanaimo, BC:
Hello. I was on your recently added sighting page and I came across the sighting in Victoria (7-Apr-2016, Victoria. BC: (9:18 pm)).
I have seen this ALOT lately in Nanaimo! I noticed them in mid February
after I came home from work it got dark and I saw an orange light on
the horizon towards the harbour it was slowly hovering north then
another one appeared slowly beside it then another then they
disappeared in the same fashion. I see these lights often I can
distinguish the difference between planes coming in and these weird
orange-yellow orb lights. One night really has me weirded out: I was
staring at these lights (and this was the first night I saw them.) and
I was trying to get photos on my iphone but couldn't capture the orbs
in the dark from the distance I was at. But I noticed the orbs were
circling the city slowly and looked like they were hovering over the
town. No noise. Just hovering. It started around 9:30 and I they went
out of my view about 30 mins later. I first thought they may be drones
but drones are unsteady in wind and you can hear them. These were
noiseless and seemed to almost float across the sky all three of them.
I haven't seen them do that since February. But I periodically see them
over the horizon doing their strange dance.
2-Jun-2016, Vancouver, BC: (8:30 pm)
on porch notice black small single engine size airplane type aircraft
but not a airplane had no sound fly from over yvr headed straight line
towards surrey called my brother to make sure I wasn't seeing things.
had no sound and flew at one speed steadily across the sky was oddest
thing see so many aircrafts of different types but this was different.
definitely not first time seeing odd things in the sky flying around
11-Jun-2016, Surrey, BC: (11 pm)
was not witness to this personally, but my wife was. Around 11 pm as
she was about to retire for the evening on Saturday night, June 11,
2016, my wife observed a large spherical shaped craft with lights
around the periphery of the craft, visible through the evening’s thin
cloud cover as it hovered over Green Timbers forest in Surrey. She said
it appeared to be massive. It moved a little, but unlike any
conventional aircraft, then slowly ascended further, and further away
until it was no longer visible at all. By the time she alerted me to
what had happened it had disappeared altogether. We live on 101A Avenue
facing west toward 149th Street and toward Green Timbers Forest.
Curious to know if you had any other reports on this occurrence? FYI,
my wife does not drink, and does not do any drugs, so I believed her
when she told me what she saw.
for the report. I know the area quite well, and it is certainly an
interesting sighting. Does your wife think it could have been some type
of “quad copter” – however unlikely given the time of the day, there
have been reports of one flying around with LEDs on it, something like
it be possible to have your wife draw us what she saw – and perhaps
(time permitting) we could come and talk to you both in person?
for the reply. I showed her the video of the quad copter and she said
it was nothing like that at all. She said there were no red or green
coloured lights, only a slight yellow-ish green hue to them. The ring
was about the size of two city buses end to end across the middle so
maybe something like 80 feet across and really couldn’t see the top of
the craft due to the clouds. She said she wouldn’t even attempt to draw
it, because she can’t draw.
18-Jun-2016, North Vancouver, BC: (9:30 pm to 10:00 pm)
live in North Vancouver and from my balcony I have a view of the north
shore mountains particularly around Grouse Mountain. It was cloudy and
I was scanning the horizon to see if the weather was going to break. I
could see the mountains under the cloud cover. Suddenly I saw two red
orbs rise above the apartment building across from me. They appeared to
be following a path going up the side of the mountain. They initially
were in line one following the other. When they reached the top next to
Grouse they changed their position and were flying side by side and
started into the clouds. eventually they disappeared. As I was standing
there I noticed another wave of these red lights. There were four of
them this time and took the same route as the first two. They were in
single file and as they approached the top of the mountain they spilt
up and headed into the mountain. I had called my son to come and see
what was happening. We stood there watching and tried to figure what
they were. As they disappeared into the clouds another wave started up
the mountain. They were following the same route as those before. The
light were all uniform and were flashing intermittently. I was baffled.
This was the first time I had ever witnessed this. It has made me a
believer. Really don't know how to explain. Unfortunately I was unable
to get photos. But my son is my witness as I am his. Wow!
Do you think you are seeing Sky or Chinese Lanterns? They come is
various shapes, sizes and colours and are often released in groups.
Sadly they have become the de facto explanation for many lights in the
sky, as they often fly "in formation" and slowly move up, often
appearing motionless and then "disappear" (simply burn out). So as for
a mundane explanation, on the balance of probability, I do think this
may fit the bill.
as we did not see it, then ours is just an "educated" guess - the
ultimate take-away from this encounter we will leave up to you. Here is
1977/1978, North Vancouver, BC:
was a little girl, about 4-5 years old. Sitting in the passenger seat
of the car. Driving home from Lions Gate Hospital. We just visited my
grandma. Mom promised to stop at the corner store on West third
looking forward to a candy stash. We turned into west 6. Heading
towards Mahon. It was dark out and a very clear night.
looked towards the Church. Hovering above the steeple was this thing. I
didn't know what it was. Never seen or heard of such things. Nor did I
know they existed. Mom went quiet. She stopped the car, stared a
moment, then turned the car right around. I was so confused. She said
she didn't know what it was.
was about the size of 10 or more cars. All silver. Had white lights all
around its edges. You could see them rotating with the craft. Very
slowly directly above the church cross. I had no idea what it was. We
drove straight home.
asked me to go tell my father what we had seen. I had no clue. So I
went to the kitchen and grabbed two cereal bowls put them rim to rim.
Told them about the lights and how it was so still but turning. He said
it was a UFO. They were not sure what it was. He also told me it
wouldn't hurt me. I had nightmares for months.
I was hoping by sharing this story others will come forward. Someone else had to see this.
19-Jun-2016, Logan Lake, BC: (1 pm)
buddy who is nervous to be named in this small community took this
photo with his cell phone and emailed it to me. I personally did not
see this but he swears this is true. I could have him call you I think
if you want to speak to him. He noticed this only after taking pix of
the deer which is seen in the foreground. I would NEVER hoax anyone. We
are professionally employed and we think this is really unusual. Photo
is attached. It was taken on a cell phone so the resolution is not
Thanks for the photo!
looking at it, as you mentioned the resolution is very poor. So we can
only go on the visual cues to determine what it may be we are looking
at in the photo. Given that he didn't see it himself at the time (a
good indication that it wasn't just hanging there) I would have to
wager that we are seeing a bird heading across the frame and mid-flap.
It could be a bug, but the level of blur and lighting suggests
something 50 feet from the camera (give or take). So although I cannot
say for sure, I would have to guess bird. But great photo of a doe!
21-Jun-2016, Courtenay, BC: (3:05 to 3:50 pm)
was working in the back yard, a semi-rural setting, and my wife and her
friend were present. I sat down on a chair in the shade and was
talking with Alene about birds and my birding skills, when a Turkey
Vulture came into view overhead, and was soaring on a thermal, doing a
straight shot past us, and over the house. We were both looking
at this bird, when we both saw a glint in the clear blue sky, very
distant. I commented that it looked like a star, perhaps I said a day
viewing of the ISS? I asked her to keep an eye on it, as it was
approaching us, from the NNE, while I went to retrieve the binoculars.
I came out and found the shining light, and with optical aid, saw a
pulsing, more intense, less intense light (white to orangy, sodium
vapour-like light) emanating from what? The path seemed to slow
for this anomaly. My wife went in to get the 20X birding scope
with tripod, and I set this up, as they took turns with the binoculars.
I finally got the object in view, I couldn't believe my eyes. It was
definitely emitting light, there were 2 lights, sometimes 3. The object
was silverfish, platelike (no discernable wing-tips, rough edges), oval
and appeared to be flipping continuously. (sometimes the 2 lights were
horizontal, then immediately turning to vertical, then back). We took
turns with the scope. None of us could explain what we were
first of 2 Air Canada jets went by, almost due west My best guess
at the altitude of the passing was 20-25 thousand feet, as I could see
the fuselage colour of Air Canada plane (blueish-gray). Using this as a
reference, I stared as the lines of travel intersected, and could see
that the object was much further distant (30-40 thousand feet).
now slowed and changed direction, heading NNW, about 80 degrees of
travel directional change. It seemed to linger a spell. We were
describing location with referencing the tree top from next door. My
wife went to call the air tower at our local air force base, and was
told, they had nothing in the air at this time. Second Air Canada
flight now passing same height as previous, approximately same
direction. Did either of these flights see this thing on their
radars? Was there any reports by them or their passengers, being
watched this object retreat to the NNW, for the next 10-15 minutes, the
lights still doing the flipping thing, now only visible in the
scope. And then it was gone. A full 45 minute of unexplainable,
unobstructed, star-like light, from an oval shape, multi-directional
travel, in a clear blue sky, by 3 adults on a sunny day in June. Wow!
25-Jun-2016, Nanaimo, BC: (10:50 pm)
4 lights blinking over the straight off Georgia right now been there
for about an hour cameras not good enough to take a pic.
1-July-2016, North Vancouver, BC: (11:00 pm)
was watching the Canada Day fireworks last night with my boyfriend from
a friend's place in North Vancouver, At the end of the fireworks, at
about 11:00 pm) there was a lot of smoke in the sky and two very bright
red orbs, the colour of the red fireworks, suddenly appeared just right
of all the smoke in the sky. They were very close together but it was
clear there were 2 red lights, not one, yet they both moved in unison.
They first appeared on the right side of the smoke in the sky then shot
out in a horizontal line away from the smoke then back in towards the
smoke in a very direct and quick fashion then suddenly dropped down
towards the ocean in more of a curved fashion than a straight line, but
on about a 45 degree angle to the right. Then it disappeared. My
boyfriend and I both noticed it and have definitely never seen anything
like it before. It was clearly not part of the fireworks and it was
definitely not an aircraft.
wonder if anyone else saw this? Was it a drone? Or something else? The
red lights were relatively large in size compared to the firworks we
had just seen. So I can't imagine it was a Chinese lantern or someone
playing around with laser pointers. Thanks!
2-July-2016, Surrey, BC: (11:30 pm)
was out on the back deck at our farm (48th avenue and 152 street) and I
thought I could see some strange lights as if they were in a row but
spaced apart in the shape of a crescent shape ! I called my boy friend
to come see and he freaked out, there was about 5 lights that we could
see and I went to get my phone and as soon as I went to take a picture
the lights went out, we stayed outside and right after I put my phone
down is was like they were turned on by a lights twitch it was like
Boom! Lights back on but this time there was 7 not 5! So we are just
staring off in to these lights ! Can't believe what we are seeing. I'm
calling my mom to go look outside and she couldn't see anything! The
lights stayed in the same area never a different area some times they
went side to side or up and down but never left that area, then I came
in and my boy friend screamed for me to come see and the lights were
gone but there was a bright green light beam across the sky! Then there
was 2 of them! Then they vanished! Then they would come back but there
would be 4 and they started strobing!!! Nothing I have ever seen
2-July-2016, Vancouver, BC: (2 pm)
was on the Locarno Beach yesterday around 2 pm, enjoying the sun and
browsing the sky to find flying birds. I saw an airplane passing just
over my location, heading west. It seemed whitish at that altitude.
Right after the plane I noticed a small, round and dark object flying
at the same speed to west but probably in a higher altitude. I followed
it for 7-8 seconds until clouds concealed my sight. I am mildly myopic
and wear prescribed and ultimately dark sunglasses but my vision is
20/20 when armed. I enjoyed the whole afternoon watching eagles,
seagulls, ravens and even small swallows flying very high in the sky.
3-July-2016, Surrey, BC: (2:30 am)
mail is just a curiosity to know about a light that we saw yesterday
early morning at 2:30 am. Yesterday while travelling through Fraser
highway in BC near 96 avenue, we saw a blurred image of blue lights. At
first it was not clear; later this began to increase and it formed a
semi circle and later this light changed to fluroscent green and then
to light red still in the shape of a half-circle.
have taken some photos in our mobile, as we were travelling in the car
we were not able to stop the car immediately to take the perfect
picture, hence the fotos are not that clear. Hereby with this mail I'm
attaching you those photos. Could you please check and let us know what
these lights are?
If you were travelling northwest
on Fraser Hwy, near 96th Avenue, you would be facing directly towards
Holland Park, which was hosting a concert on July 2nd and 3rd. Possibly
they had coloured spot lights operating? We are trying to get
confirmation of that.
4-July-2016, Nanaimo, BC: (3:30 am)
my house looking up having a crafty smoke, when I saw a light, like a
star....I watched it for about a 1 min 30 sec. It started as a star
then moved and darted about towards Nanaimo town, high up...was weird
as nothing I know moves that quick...I want to know if anyone else saw
it!! I recorded a voicemail on my phone shortly after to record the
time...and went up and told my husband who was in bed....which i think
feels I'm not seeing things right......but I saw it! I hate conspiracy
nuts and and was looking up and bam....little light.....darting around.
I stood there thinking just clear my eyes for 30 sec....... I could not
believe it....but I saw it.....man do we have cool engines out there?
4-July-2016, Vancouver, BC: (1:30 am)
wanted to get my sighting report on your website. On monday July 4 at
around 1:30 am I saw what appeared to be a blue crown shape in the skies
above Vancouver BC. I live in Surrey, and it appeared to be above North
Vancouver somewhere. I know someone else must have seen this as it was
huge and you just couldn't miss it. I didn't take any videos, but
I saw a video on YouTube that someone by the name of Phil Can managed
to capture. She lives in Guildford.I know this is what I saw but I
haven't found any other reports on it, have you recieved anything on
this? Check the video out at
our website we have posted a couple of photographs taken on July 3rd.
We believe the lights shown may have something to do with a concert
taking place in Holland Park in Surrey. Does this photo look like what
Yes that's exactly what I saw. I thought it could be spotlights from a concert but I wasn't sure.
9-July-2016, Mission, BC: (11:30 pm)
walked out to deck for a smoke, I light cig, heard plane, looked up,
saw plane, heading east...and out of the corner of my eye, towards
west, was a bright pulsive flash, I seen it all, and it was like
welding flashes, burn out before hits floor...like this, hung for about
a sec...then no light...I was looking for it, thinking a plane
traveling would light up again in 5 sec....didnt....about 30 sec later,
it did it again in a different spot, lost it in a sec, as light faded
to nothing....and again and again...4 times, 4 different spots, in 4
min....I was thinking, and absorbing it, and it was overcast, I can see
stars in between clouds, and it was above the clouds, which was at low
this day...so im thinking maybe object was 2-3000 feet, maybe....but by
the time I saw the 3rd and 4th flash....I didnt hear anything, as the
plane noise was gone by then....so no sound, jumped arround...and after
the 4th sighting, the clouds where closed in more and I totaly lost it
for good...so I went back in the house and right away told a girl I was
talking to, and I reported it to Mufon just after midnight.....so ya,
this was a single craft, hovering on spot, flashed, moved to different
spot, flashed....or it could of been 1 big craft, with different lights
flashing different spots...but majority of craft was hidden behind
clouds...so i am confused and shooken still...Mufon won't come talk to
me, and i need some one to talk to...but no doctors....if u can somehow
contact me, come over and look at situation I was in, I would like it a
lot...I had to confirm with texts, that I wasnt abducted this
time...because I was gone for 5 min....this wasnt my first sighting,
and it wont be my last...thank you
November 1966, Burnaby, BC:
and my husband were having dinner at a couple's house. We walked
towards their living room window while they were in the kitchen cooking
dinner. We saw a bright light shining down. We looked up
and saw a large circular shaped ("flying saucer" type) object in
the sky with blinking red and white lights as though the object were
rotating. There was a beam of light coming from the bottom on the
object as well. The light was so bright, it was lighting up all
the trees and everything around. It was flying very low. We
were alarmed and back away quickly from the window. The object
disappeared very quickly a few seconds later. We decided to not mention
this to the couple in the kitchen as we didn't think they would believe
1-Jan-2016, North Vancouver, BC: (between 1:15 and 3:00 am)
boyfriend and I were still up on New Years Day 2016 somewhere between
1:15 and 3:00AM. He was in the bedroom changing and I went onto my
balcony which overlooks the ocean and downtown Vancouver. High in
the sky I saw a bright flashing light that seemed to be a circular
shape. At first I thought maybe it was just a plane. Then the object
started moving around erratically all over the place. It could not have
been a plane or helicopter. I pulled out my iphone and got a
short video of it. If I zoom in on the video, I can see the bright
light flashing and moving around erratically very clearly. If I can
figure out how to edit the video so that it is zoomed in, I would love
to submit it. In the video (without zooming in) you can still see a
tiny light moving erratically in the sky, but it looks so small on
video compared to what I saw with my naked eye. I recently looked on
Youtube and it looks like someone else saw 2 UFO's on January 1, 2016
in Vancouver as well (during daylight). He video recorded it and put it
on Youtube. The UFO's on his video look like the one I saw a few hours
earlier when it was still dark.
1997/1998, Burnaby, BC:
I have had a similar sighting to a craft just like this (see report
"2-Jun-2016, Vancouver, BC: (8:30 pm)". I can't remember exactly
when this occurred but maybe 1997/98? What happened was that I went to
use the ATM at the Canada Trust located across the street from
Brentwood Mall. I was with my girlfriend and I can't remember why we
had to go there at the time (it was approx. between 7:30pm - 8:15pm). I
was waiting outside facing eastbound looking towards Brentwood Mall as
my girlfriend was in the Canada Trust using the ATM. It was dark but
wasn't raining and as I was standing there, I heard what sounded like
wind or the air moving across a surface that seemed to be located
approx. 50-60 ft. above street level. I looked up and saw what I
thought was small airplane like a Cessna or something but it was
COMPLETELY black or at least a dark colour and there was NO SOUND. The
only sound was from the air or wind that was moving across this
mysterious object's surface(s). It was moving northbound just casually
flying, "moving", what ever the term is for these anomolous craft over
Brentwood Mall. It moved along and out of sight as I was left standing
there scratching my head. My girlfriend came out of the bank and I
didn't mention it and we just went to the car. I wouldn't have ever
noticed that it was there if I didn't hear what I construed was the
sound of wind moving. When my eyes adjusted and saw what it was because
it was dark my first impression was that it was a small plane due to
the shape and size of it but in the dark I could tell that it was
tapered toward the end like a plane but it was never thought of like
being a disk or cigar-shaped UFO.
was the start of many UFOs that I have seen in Burnaby. I just don't
know why they are attracted to Burnaby but I live across the street
from BCIT and they have big radio dishes there so methinks that might
But then again, UFOs are everywhere. :)
27-Jul-2016, Cowichan Lake, BC: (between 12:00 am and 1:30 am)
friend Dawson, my aunt barb and I were watching the meteor shower last
night, a very very bright orange then green star like object fell
through the sky. A couple minutes later we noticed what looked like a
star but brighter flew out from behind the trees. It was flying in a
very strange manner doing a couple circles around and going up and down
repeatedly for around 30 minutes. All of the sudden, another star
like object came out of no where and flew up very very quickly right up
next to the other one. With no flashing lights, no noises and the odd
flying manner we thought there was no way it could have been a plane or
satellite. After a few seconds of them doing circles next to each other
one of the objects hovered off across the sky slowly while the other
one disappeared into no where. We would love to hear your professional
29-Jul-2016, Rutland, BC: (about 11:00 pm)
lighted object moving very quickly and then darting in all sorts of
different directions in a split second.. and then disappeared. For sure
this was not a plane or a star. We were looking from Rutland towards
the mountains on the west Kelowna side of the lake.
1-Aug-2016, Vancouver, BC: (about midnight)
was walking my girlfriend's 15 year old husky late at night in a
Vancouver neighborhood that I've visited numerous times, but I wouldn't
say I'm overly familiar with the area. It was about midnight on the
evening of August 1st, 2016. The dog and I had been walking around the
immediate neighborhood for about half an hour, and the route I was
currently taking (west along 48th) brought us to the entrance of a
trail at the corner of Alma and 48th that both the dog and I have
walked through several times previously. But since it was midnight, and
the trail was pitch black, I started to go north on Alma instead. The
dog didn't care that it was pitch black and wanted to go onto the
trail. The black arrow on the attached Google Street View image
indicates where she was located while at the end of her retractable
leash. We were having a standoff. The dog, being a typical husky, was
being stubborn. We were in no hurry, so I was giving her a couple of
minutes to come around to my way of thinking. I was about 20 feet north
of the hound looking south towards her.
of a sudden a very bright red light appeared in the sky just a bit to
my left. It was moving very fast towards the west. At first I thought
it was a shooting star, but I quickly ruled that out. It wasn't moving
in a straight line, it changed it's speed slightly as it swerved, and
the light had a very distinct outline or edge to it. What I mean by
that is that the light didn't appear distant and/or "fuzzy". Although I
was looking in the general direction of the airport, there was nothing
to indicate this was anything like a plane in the distance. If I had to
guess, I'd say it was maybe 100 feet away and perhaps an inch in
diameter. (But yes, it is possible it was a larger object further
away.) It was deep red, and it was bright, but it wasn't actually
casting any light. In other words, it was very easy to spot, but it
wasn't illuminating anything with its own light. I only saw it for
maybe one second, two seconds max, before the light went completely
out... just before it would've disappeared from view behind the trees.
The area was very quiet, there was no wind, (no cloud cover either that
I recall), and no sound was produced by whatever it was that I saw.
There was no evidence of fireworks or flares. I'm 60 years of age, and
have never previously witnessed anything like this. It was very strange.
PS. I was completely sober, and my vision is good. The dog didn't appear to notice anything, but she is 15 years of age!
4-Aug-2016, Blind Bay, BC: (about 8:15 pm)
first looked like silver glint coming right toward me high in the sky
like a vertical oval then I watched it start dropping toward the hills.
It appeared to have changed direction and the shape changed. I took 2
pictures but I cannot see the object in the pictures even though I
could see it with my eyes. I grabbed the binoculars and it looked like
one of those safe lawn darts falling but dazzling white and no middle
piece. It moved at a steady pace downward and dropped behind the hills.
I have been coming to the Okanagan for 40 years and I have never seen
anything like it.
every night, Surrey, BC:
family and I see this every night. It is always in the southern part of
the sky. What caught our attention was the large orange glow which
appears to be the front of this craft. The orange light can be seen
slowly turn right and left up and down but as my son pointed out behind
this orange ball there is another one quite a distance away. They seem
to move with each other and with closer and a long time watching you
can see two other glows but more starish but again move with the
others. We think it's one giant ship because it moves like a boat. The
night we saw a commercial plane fly behind the light confirmed that
these illumination's are in the sky not atmosphere or space. I've taken
several pictures but to be honest it can't be seen the same as with
6-Aug-2016, Vernon, BC:
am not sure what I saw tonight, but it sure as heck was not a
plane...and was too large in size to be a satellite. There were many
planes in the sky tonight and it was rather cloudy, but I spend a lot
of time star gazing so the night sky here is not unfamiliar to me, what
I saw was nothing I have seen before. My mother and I were at "Vernon
Secondary School" in Vernon, BC Aug 6 2016, we were in the school field
watching the thunder and lighting that was taking place and I said to
my mother "look at that! is that a planet or something ?? ". It was a
large orange orb looking thing about the size of ....half a full moon
i'd say, and we thought nothing of it just that it looked really pretty
orange colour and that it was a possible planet or something, then
around 10:30 pm about 10-15 mins after we noticed the orange orb, the
big orange orb started to move up then down at a slow pace, then as it
went back up it kind of shot up and blinked in and out almost like an
electrical short out, the orange orb turned into two small white lights
that were sporadically moving around and making the same short out
spark then shot up and was gone and we stood there and looked for about
a half an hour after to see if we would see anything again but there
was nothing. I did not get any photos as we were quite excited and
overwhelmed, not knowing what we were seeing but I wish I had! I hope
my mom and I were not the only ones who saw this incredible orange
beauty what ever it may have been.
6-Aug-2016, Victoria, BC: (10:30 pm)
large orange orbs over Victoria BC Saturday night. One was away from
the other two and they were in a row. My Dad and I were both in the car
at the same time and questioned each other if we had both really seen
them or if we were seeing things. The military noted last year they
would be training with drones, but these were not flashing or moving.
We tried to look for them as went down the road, but they were only in
the sky for a couple of minutes then vanished.
12-Aug-2016, Surrey, BC: (8:01 pm)
was in front of us driving, this was off to the right side of car...It
was very large and kind of a square shape, and fairly low, & bright
orangey-yellow colour, and it didn't seem to be moving....3 people in
car saw it...We were heading home from Langley BC to Surrey BC.....(we
were on the free way) it was 8:01 pm....
18-Aug-2016, Trail, BC: (10:05 pm)
was on the roof of our RV and we had just watched the full moon rise
not too long beforehand. I was thinking of of all the constellation's
and I noticed a bright star then as I stared longer a humming sound and
movement occurred. I watched longer to ensure actual movement and
called to my partner. It continued, he couldn't see it but it's there.
19-Aug-2016, White Rock, BC: (about 10:20 pm)
husband and I frequent this beach on a regular basis. Late night walks
are great because we have a dog and it allows him some freedom from
always being on leash when there are crowds of people. As we were
walking down the beach heading north/west I happen to look up and see a
very large, extremely bright red light in the sky. My husband's first
guess was a helicopter. For a minute or so we weren't completely
focused on it having already decided what it was but it soon again
grabbed our attention. We noticed that it looked as if it was standing
still but was actually heading directly toward us. What at first seemed
to be one red light was actually three in a triangle formation bright
enough that the halo from the light made it appear as one from a
distance. There were no other lights at all, no anticollision lights,
no flashing lights at all. No other colours. No noise. We are
relatively close to several airports including one major one and as we
were watching a commercial airliner flew below and in front of this
object. In comparison the plane was a grain of rice. The object
continued in the same direction for maybe three minutes and then moved
90° sideways like a backwards, laying down "L". Within 30 seconds of
this direction change it covered a massive amount of space and suddenly
shrunk from a massive red object to literally what seemed like a
pinpoint and was gone. There was no sound. We could hear the planes. It
was not a plane. We live in whalley, we see helicopters all the time,
night and day. It was not a helicopter. We are familiar with drones,
this was massive. To have the spread of the three lights so clear at
such a high altitude way above the planes it has to have been the size
of a football field. We thought Japanese lantern but this was
completely in control of its movements. Not a lantern. We literally
stood there for at least an hour after watching all other air traffic
and it did not even come close. This was really hard to put into words
as it was something beyond what I can describe properly. It was
difficult to wrap my brain around what I was seeing/had seen. Also it
was a completely cloud free, clear nighttime sky.
4-Jun-2013, North Vancouver, BC: (11 pm)
Hi I saw your website and thought I would share this with you.
Tuesday, June 4th, 2013 - I reported this to "As It Happens" and they played it on their program.
At 11 pm, I took the dog out for a last walk.
should tell you I live on a cul de sac that is an off shoot of a very
long dead end street in north Vancouver. This offshoot is a good mile
away from any type of busy road, and it was DEAD quiet.
first I heard a rushing, roaring sound, like wind blowing over a large
open jar. Then a sound like two blocks of wood being clacked and popped
together. That changed into the sound of metal tinkling together - like
someone with a large handful of cultlery that they were passing back
and forth, hand to hand. Finally, there was this very spooky low, low
sound of some type of trumpet of oboe. Actually it sounded very much
like the sound of the machines in Tom Cruise's War of the Worlds.
separate sound lasted about 5-10 seconds before a new sound started.
This series of sounds repeated in the same order for 4 or 5 rotations.
At that point I got very scared and ran into the house.
friend was out on her deck about 1/2 - 3/4 of a mile away (as the crow
flies) and said she and her husband were sitting out on their deck
before bed at that time and thought they heard what they thought was
soft fireworks from the PNE over the water. There were NO fireworks
have since listened to websites where people have recorded what they
call "Gabriel's Horn" - a phenomenon heard around the world at that
time (I had never heard of it when I had my experience). And the final
sound I heard was a soft version of that.
23-Aug-2016, East Vancouver, BC: (9 pm)
saw a light in the sky bobbing up and down over Grandview Highway and
Skeena, dipping up and down moving faster than any plane of helicopter
could. It was changing colours green and than red, then disappearing
entirely. It could bob side to side and up and down. It was moving
above my neighbourhood. (Searching) I was scared it was coming for me
since I am a highly sensitive person. So I booted it to Walmart. It
started to kind of follow me. But then went to the right. And kept
going. Its colours were best described as light green. Not the kind you
would find on a plane. Also Its lights were covering the whole... orb?
craft. I don't know. Tell me if you saw it too.
June 1970, Vancouver, BC: (3 am)
girlfriend works late at a Vancouver resturant so I would drive from
Surrey to Van to pick her up. We were driving past Simon Fraser
university on the hwy 1 when I looked out my drivers window up toward
SFU. There was a very bright light sitting in one position over SFU, I
said to Sandy "look they have a helicopter out with a search light" as
Sandy bent to look out my drivers door window the light shot east at
such a speed we were able to see the light out of the middle of the
front windshield, at that point it went south across the sky in front
of us to a point out of sight in a second. The speed at which it
traveled was equal to the speed of the light over the Temple Mound in
Isreal. This was June 1970.
18-Aug-2016, Port Alice, BC: (10:30 pm)
Aug 18/16 I was watching the sky for the meteorite showers. Due west I
saw a very bright light (4xbrighter than the stars) moving at a very
steady slow speed across the sky. It was heading south with no noise,
Port Alice is a very small quiet town and there was no town noise to
interfere. As this light traveled slowly south the light seemed to be
non directional like a globe. As I was viewing this light through my
Pentax 7x50 field binoculars looking for the signature of an airplane
with it's flashing red/green lights running lights of which there was
no sign. I followed it with the binoculars listening for a sound of
which there was nothing for about a half a minute the light shut off,
not behind anything just shut off and no trace of it after.
25-Aug-2016, Ucluelet, BC: (10 pm)
camping this week in Ucluelet I witnessed and photographed something I
am unsure of. Around 9:55pm I headed to the small beach that the
walk-in campsites back onto with a tripod on digital camera to capture
some long exposures of the Milky Way. After roughly 5 minutes while I
was taking a photo looking roughly South towards the Milky Way, I
noticed to my right a bright light. The light was roughly SW, maybe 1
mile away, and appeared quite bright. It looked as thought it was not
quite on the horizon and the light seemed to dance and be the same
color as a campfire seen from a distance. I realized that the
reflection of this light off the ocean was quite bright and noticeable,
however I did not hear anyone on the beach mention it aloud from the
position I was in. There were at least 3 groups of people having beach
fires and the light was very noticeable but perhaps not so much when
visiting w/ friends around a fire. In any case I found it odd. The
light was brilliant and slightly dancing for maybe half a minute to 1
minute in duration and then suddenly it was no longer there. As I took
another long exposure photo it came on again in the exact same
position. I do not recall the duration but it was not as brilliant this
time but did come on abruptly and turn off abruptly. After this I
turned my camera and tripod and set up to capture the light if it came
on again, which it did. I have 2 exposures at 30seconds of this light.
The first exposure captured the light for nearly the entire exposure if
not all of it (30secs) and the light was brilliant and shimmery for the
duration and simply turned off. The second exposure of 30secs captured
maybe 10seconds of it at the start of the shot and it seemed to have
lost it's brilliance and the light kind of swayed and flickered much
like a campfire flame would, kind of dying out within 2seconds. I have
not real way of telling how far away the light is but when I zoom into
the photo it appears, as I had suspected, to be above the horizon line
of the ocean. I would guesstimate that with the perceived distance it
must have been at least 30-50 feet above the water. I also took a
30second exposure of the area without the light and could not determine
if there was a boat in the area and I do not think this was a buoy,
although there does appear to be something on the water in the
immediate area where the light was but it is difficult to make out what
it may be, if anything. During the day there is no discernible water
marker in the area. The skies were probably the clearest I have ever
seen in the area and in the photo there is a visible layer of water
vapor on top of the water which the light is clearly above.
have RAW format image files for inspection if required and I can also
provide a rough mock up on Google satellite of my position. I am hoping
there is some rational explanation for what this might have been. I did
not time the intervals between the light being on, however it did not
seem to follow a particular pattern. Of the 4 times the light came on
it ceased to come on in any regularity after my last exposure. I waited
another 10 minutes and headed back to camp amazed at the lack of light
pollution that night, as well as feeling very curious as to what I may
have captured on my camera.
28-Aug-2016, Victoria, BC: (12:52 am)
partner and I live high up in a building downtown and spotted a light
blue orb light with a white light tail flying at the speed of a drone
flying low over the buildings but then disappeared into thin air. It
left us both in complete shock. Wanted to know if anyone else witnessed
2013 Summer, Chehalis, BC: (10 pm)
was driving home around 10:00pm after visiting with my family. It was
during the summer months, so the night skies were crystal clear. I was
heading north on Sachem Rd and I saw a pure white glowing orb floating
/flying slowly towards me. It was as high as the Douglas Firs and
about 3/4 of a soccer field away. This was very unusual as we are
a semi remote community, and it's very quiet around here. I got out of
my car and watched it move closer. There was no noise. By now it
was about a 1/2 soccer field away and it flew slowly in a straight
line. Suddenly the light just went out, like switch was turned
off. I continued to look in the same spot and there was
absolutely nothing there, just blackness and there was no sound at all.
It seemed as though "they seen me... see them." I got scared and
jumped in my car and drove home, which is about a 2 minute drive.
I thought it might have been a drone and looked for images and could
not see anything that resembled what I saw. Has anyone else seen
anything like this?
