- Gers, France
- Date: 1973 or 1974
- Time: 8:00 - 8:15 a.m.
- Duration of event: about 5 to 10 minutes
- Location of event: National Road 124
- Number of witnesses: 2 Number of ojects: 1
- Shape of object: Orange glowing with defined contour.
- Complete description of event: It was in 1973 or 1974
and I was 9 or 10 years old. It was around 8 or 8:15 in the morning and
my dad was driving me to school like he did every morning then.
- Our itinirary started by taking a small road, then a
highway and it took about 15 to 20 minutes to cover 12 or 13 km. My father
drives slowly, more so when he just started the car's diesel engine.
- So we were on our way but after 2 or 3 kms he pointed
out to me an object that I couldn't see clearly because my line of vision
was not at the right angle. He seemed very surprised by what he was seeing
and in fact he was asking me if I was seeing the same thing he did. His
vision was not as good as mine and maybe he was hoping I could identify
the object correctly. We were going down a little valley and soon we'd
loose sight of the object. That's when he sped up to get passed this little
valley, so we could get a closer look at the object.
- That's when I saw the object properly. It was a sphere,
orange is colour, that looked very much like the sun when we can watch
it without being blinded. Of course it wasn't the sun. Everybody knows
the sun rises east. This was south of us. It was hovering, as if it was
suspended to an invisible line in the air. Under it there was a simple
field, nothing special. A hedge, a few poles and power lines but nothing
more. No high tension line, no transformer.
- My father stopped the car on the side of the road and
went to the trunk to retrieve his camera. He used it for his job and it
contained black and white film. I also got out of the car to see this ball
without having the windshield in between. I was rather excited and nervous,
like all kids this age. If I had been alone when I saw it, my father would
never have believed me. Now it was different, he was with me when we saw
it and he saw it first.
- The sphere's bottom was paler in colour, as if we'd fill
a transparent ball with orange and white paint and the two colours didn't
mix well. It gave an impression of changing in colour, it was difficult
to determine the exact colour. Bad luck, the time it took my father to
take out the camera and take the cap off the lens, the sphere was gone.
- It happened so fast that we don't know if it took off
vertically instantly or if it just faded out but I saw an vertical line
in my eye, sort of like an impression on the retina. The line seemed to
lean slightly to the right, so eastern direction, but it could have been
perfectly vertical. It was not a line of smoke or steam or light but something
difficult to define or explain, as if the sky opened up and took away the
ball away then closed up again. It was really a weird feeling. Anyway the
vehicles we know of, they have to deal with gravity, thus powerful acceleration
that is visible to the naked eye. This went off like a ball, no visible
acceleration. It was gone instantly.
- Despite my insistance to go and report this at the police
station, hence not going to school that day - I was only ten but I wasn't
crazy :-) - my father refused and explained to me that other drivers from
both directions on RN124 road must have seen it too and they would report
it to the police. He was afraid they'd think him crazy or worst, a drunk,
if he told them what we saw. .
- Even after this experience he is still a skeptic in all
regards. He's anti-religion too, he says that it's invented by men to control
other people. When I talk about our sighting he says that we should stay
cautious about what we saw.
- He can't deny what we saw! What does he mean "cautious"?
Not to talk about it? To not associate it to a ufo? He doesn't want to
talk about it in front of other people. Even when we're alone he avoids
- Since then I"ve been searching, reading archives
and trying to understand what this could have been. The internet has allowed
me to contact people interested by the subject. Before that I didn't know
who to talk to.
- I know more about the subject now but more questions
arised! Reports, pictures, videos are piling up but nothing gets solved.
- Have a good week.
- Thank you to the person for the report.

- Dec. 12, 2003 Back before Christmas in a field across
the street from my house there was a light that had blue on the top, green
on the bottom right side, and red on the bottom left. Kinda like a triangle
it stayed hovering there maybe 50-100 feet off the ground. When I saw it
I yelled for my mum to come running and she seen it as well so I know I'm
not crazy. It was there for about 20 mins then all of the sudden disappeared
for like a second. Then came back as a single white light for a couple
seconds disappeared and jumped higher in the air I assume and came back
as an orange light that flew over with a weird blueish white light coming
out what I assume was the back kinda like a comet. And during the hole
thing the street light was flickering and when it flew overhead the street
light went out and hasn't came back on. The city people have worked on
it so much and they still can't get it to work. While the light was there
over the field it never made any noise. My mom said it was helicopter
because she is a church person and refuses to believe there is anything
else in the universe so she is closed minded.
- But on Sunday, the 25th of April, 2004. I had let my
dog out about 9:00 p.m. and as I was watching this weird craft was coming
from the southeast which is in the opposite direction of Sonora from where
I live. It had 3 of the purest white lights on the back that would flash
orange in random intervals. Like the one on the far left would flash then
the others would but always in a different order. Like the middle one would
flash then the others would flash. And on the point of the triangle was
an orange light that was constantly flashing. It flew over slow and was
about 500 feet. over our house. And it never made a noise and it headed
off in a north western direction. I called my Uncle and Aunt to go outside
and look because it flew over there house which is about 5 miles from where
I live. They said they didn't know what it was and not to mention it again,
they don't want people to think there nutters. People in my family are
strict and don't like to stray from what they think is the straight and

- Prince George, B.C.
- Date: May 13, 2004
- Time: 11;15 p.m.
- A lady called me from Prince George, B.C. to report a
sighting that she and her mother had. The first witness to the sighting
had been laying down with her young son when her Mom came into the room
and said she could hear what they thought was a kitten crying just outside
their home. So the two ladies went outside to have a look for the crying
cat when the porch light suddenly went out. One of the ladies looked up
into the sky and towards the west and noticed a light traveling through
the sky heading in their direction which was towards the east. She thought
it may have been a satellite or a airplane. But the light was far to low
in altitude for it to be a satellite and there was no sound or any flashing
lights so she ruled out a plane of some kind.
- As the white light approached closer and over top of
their home it grew much brighter, extremely bright she said. The object
continued it's flight towards the east and at one point the ladies Mother
saw another light coming towards the one they were already watching, but
the second light was traveling from the north and heading to the south.
As both witnesses watched, the lights met up in the night sky and blinked
out as they crossed each other's path. The woman told me they just disappeared.
- The first light was observed for approx: three minutes
and the second light was observed for approx: 1 1/2 minutes before they
both vanished. No tail was following behind any of the lights. It was also
a clear night. No aircraft were seen inn the area when the sighting took

- Scarborough, Ontario
- Date: May 15 2004
- Time: Approx 7:50-8:00 p.m.
- Number of witnesses: 2
- Number of objects: 2+
- Shape of objects: round
- Full Description of event/sighting: At dusk (approx 7:50-8:00
pm) on May 15 2004, from my home in East Scarborough near Lake Ontario,
looking south towards the lake, some moving lights in the sky caught my
attention. They were confined to a fairly small area of the skScarborough,
Ontarioy and seemed to be at about cloud level. My guess is the lights
were moving about perhaps a few miles off our shoreline, and would likely
have been high enough and far enough over the lake to also have been visible
from the US side of the lake. It had been an overcast day and the sky at
this time was clearing. It wasn't nearly dark enough yet to observe any
- At first I saw one small pink-red light at cloud level
traveling parallel to the ground and in a straight line moving from east
to west at about the same rate as I'd expect to see planes travel. This
light flashed on and off with a regular rhythm like an aircraft and was
about the same size as an aircraft light seen at such a distance. It seemed
to have appeared out of nowhere, then traveled west for perhaps 5 seconds
and disappeared. I thought I had seen and then lost sight of a plane.
- Suddenly from the very same place in the sky that the
light originally appeared, and only seconds after the first light vanished,
another light appeared. It was the same colour and behaved exactly like
the first light, even traveling in the very same line. It too disappeared
in the same manner as the first light. This behavior of a light appearing,
traveling for a few seconds across the sky and then disappearing repeated
6-10 times. After a few passes the reappearing light ceased flashing as
it moved across the sky. It glowed a reddish pink colour and without blinking
as it moved.
- The behaviour of the light then changed. Suddenly the
light was moving from west to east and towards the end of the sighting
it seemed that there might have been more than one light in play. Just
as one vanished another appeared. The direction of flight changed to a
sweeping arc. The flight started parallel to the ground and then curved
steeply upwards and seemed to accelerate just before disappearing. There
seemed to be a distinct repetitive pattern to the flight of the light(s).
As one light moved from east to west, arcing at the end of its flight,
another light mirrored that pattern by flying west to east and then arced
upwards at the end. The area the lights were "playing" in the
sky drifted higher and a little to the east as the sighting continued.
It also seemed that the activity of the lights became more intense towards
the end. They appeared and disappeared more quickly and the flight pattern
became more energetic. The best thought that comes to mind is it appeared
that they were growing increasingly excited about something as the activity
became quite hectic towards the end. The display of these lights lasted
about 5 minutes and was witnessed by a friend with me at the time. His
impression was that the lights were chasing each other, as in a dogfight.
- The flight pattern reminded me of when you see a powerful
spot light beamed in the sky circling and moving about, starting and finishing
its routine in the same place every time. These lights were a lot like
what you see when you use a red laser pointer, except the colour of the
lights in the sky were less intense red than a laser, rather being an almost
pink sort of colour. Since the cloud cover was quite thin at this time
it's unlikely that some sort of laser was beaming around on the cloud cover
(If it was an extremely powerful laser I would have seen the lights fade
in and out as the beam struck thin patches of clouds. The lights I saw
held intensity as they flew across the sky before vanishing suddenly.)
- There was no sound accompanying this sighting and I think
the flight behavior was too radical for normal aircraft. The speed and
turns were not something I've ever seen planes capable of doing, particularly
without making sound. The regular flashing of the lights in the beginning
was aircraft-like, but the reddish-pink colour was unusual. I got the feeling
while watching the lights that I was seeing glowing objects, something
without mass (like the spot made by a laser) rather than a solid aircraft.
- In such an urban area as this I can't imagine that my
friend and I were the only two people to have seen this blatant display
of something quite unusual right out in the open and in daylight. Surely
our beaches and boardwalks, which provide a perfect view of the southern
sky, were busy on Saturday after dinner and many people could have seen
this event. I've checked into all the major local news sources, newspapers,
radio and local TV news and haven't seen a mention of this event. I hope
to learn what it was that we saw, or at least hear accounts from other

- Hi Brian, have been seeing those mysterious lights every
night that its clear and so far have found about a dozen that I can see
from my window. I get a lot a glare from the city lights and they are about
the brightest lights in the sky. I've been seeing lights appear and disappear
over Seymour Mtn. nearly every night so last night right after sunset aimed
my camera over there. Just got it set up when I saw a large streak of what
looked like fire appear in the sky over Grouse Mtn. It was about twice
the height of Grouse and I didn't see any object at the head of it. Just
a bright yellow streak of what looked like fire with drips coming off the
bottom of the flames.
- Can't think of proper way to describe it. Sort of like
throwing burning gasoline. Appeared just above summit and disappeared above
the bottom of the ski run. Time was 21:30 still quite a bit of light in
the sky. 21:52 - Camera picked up a white light moving east just over Seymour,
I assumed it was a small plane but was unable to see it with either pair
of binoculars. I zoomed in with the camera but was unable to see any fuselage
behind the light even though it was still fairly light and I should have
been able to see something. 22:03 - Camera picked up what appeared to be
a similar light approaching
- Seymour Mtn. light stopped just above the summit. Unable
to see it through binoculars. I zoomed in with the camera and it looked
like those other mysterious lights. Object began moving slowly eastward
just above mountains in half and hour it was over Indian Arm and at one
hour over Heritage Mountain north of Port Moody. I stopped tracking at
- 02:00 - Was just scanning the sky with the camera, came
across what looked like three stars in perfect triangle all equal in size
and brightness. I tried zooming in on each of them and they all appeared
to look like luminous slowly pulsing pearls, quite pretty actually. They
didn't appear to be very far away as they filled the screen right away
while the starts around them were hardly magnified at all. I don't know
if they were connected to anything as I couldn't see anything except blackness
around them. I could see faint stars all around but nothing showed between
them. They were about 80 degrees overhead and just slightly to the NW
of my location. Was looking at a star chart and Virgo looks somewhat similar
but does not appear to be quite the same shape.

- Ottawa, Ontario
- Date: May 17, 2004
- Time: Approx: 8:30 p.m.
- Number of witnesses: 2
- Number of objects: 1
- Shape of objects: varied
- Full Description of event/sighting: As my boyfriend and
I were on our way home from work, I looked up and noticed what appeared
to be a plane about to land at the nearby airport. It was V-shaped with
plenty of bright lights and was very close to the ground. As we drove
closer, the object appeared to change shape from a V to an oval shape.
It also picked up speed and started travelling in the same direction that
we were going (east) and by this time it appeared to be quite far off.
- I wasn't sure if I was seeing things right - I thought
perhaps that these lights were a reflection on the windshield or something
but my boyfriend verified what I saw. I was still doubting what I was
seeing so I stuck my head out the window because I wanted to see the object
with my bare eyes. As we were turning into our driveway, the flying object
seemed to stop abruptly and then started to approach out direction (west)
and as it was doing so, got much closer to the ground (I'm not sure how
low). We got out of the car and stood at the end of the driveway to watch
to see where it was going. It hovered and its pattern of lights were changing
now from random and extremely fast flashing to 5 bright white lights.
- It was really hard to tell how far away the object was
at this point but we both new that it was a lot closer than before. It
did not appear that the lights were attached by any one object; rather,
it was as though they were together in a group formation. As it was hovering
it was "pacing" north and south very slowly. As we walked closer
to the door a red/pink light appeared and it seemed as though it were trying
to hide from our sight now. Then as we were walking in the door, it hovered
back into our view. I absolutely could not believe what i was seeing.
My boyfriend's witnessing to it was the same as mine.
- It just so happened that as we immediately turned on
the TV in our room, a program came on television that was about UFO sightings.
It was too odd to be a coincidence. Has anyone else had an experience
like my boyfriend and I have had?
- Thank you to the witness for the report.
- Vernon, British Columbia
- Date: May 17, 2004
- Time: 10:00 p.m.
- Hi Brian
- Monday May 17 night at 10 pm I saw a globe "star"
about the brightness of Jupiter and similar in size fly over Vernon from
the west to the east. I could not tell exactly how high it was but it appeared
to be as high as the jets are maybe 20,000 ft. I had also noticed "satelites"
gold in color flying south to north but disappearing at a place in a constellation
following Leo and Jupiter in the sky and I could not track them further.
- Tuesday night I was on my balcony from 11 pm until 3:30
am. I noticed the same satellites. One followed the other by five minutes
heading north. Then one went back on the same direction heading south or
the opposite direction from where they had been. They seemed to appear
from where they disappeared in the sky. They move at the similar speed
to a satelite. They are gold in color.
- The next event was a globe flying over Vernon the same
as the night before from the west. It turned orange and disappeared high
over my building. I saw another globe from the same place in the west
heading toward the north. My eye was then turned to a bright flaring of
super white light high in the sky and this gold globe headed north. My
eye caught another flare high in the wnw sky but this one flickered then
flared and strobed white light as it headed in a north direction. Another
one flared in the nw sky and flew in the direction of the other strobing
- At about 3 am I noticed two satelites on the same trajectory
as first sighted. They were close together seemed to slow down and one
proceeded south while the other one headed east. The last sighting was
at 3:30am when a white gold globe flared high directly over head in the
sky turned orange and vanished.
