- 13-June-98, Nakusp: (9:45 pm) While lounging
in the Nakusp Hot Springs pool, the witness and his brother were looking
toward the southwest. It was late dusk and only 3 or 4 of the brightest
stars were visible in that portion of the sky. They then noticed one of
the "stars" was moving! It would move erratically, pause, then
move in a different direction. At one point, all 12 to 15 people in the
pool were watching it move around. After about 10 minutes, all the people
were asked to vacate the pool as it was closing for the night (10:00 pm).
The witness went back to his trailer to change while his brother got his
binoculars to continue watching the light. About 10:10, the brother came
in to say that he had been watching it with binoculars when he suddenly
saw two bright flashes, about 2 seconds apart, further to the right (west).
After the distraction of the flashes he could no longer locate the moving
light. It was a clear night with excellent viewing conditions.
- 26-July-1998, Terrace: (11:30 pm) "I
was camping with three other friends at Red Sand Lake, a campground located
20 km northwest of Terrace. At approximately 11:30 pm, we began observing
the sky looking for satellites and shooting stars. Suddenly, we noticed
a bright white light moving jaggedly in the sky. It appeared to mildly
pulsate with a green and red tint. It did not make any noise and moved
in very intricate zigzag-like patterns. It manoeuvred unlike any aircraft
I know of. The object hovered predominantly over mountains to the south,
causing a faint blue glow over the mountains. The object remained visible
for about an half an hour to an hour. During this time, we also saw another
similar object in the sky. However, unlike the first object, its movements
were concentrated across the entire night sky. It moved jaggedly from west
to east at stunning speed for an object at that distance. Again, there
was no sound. Both objects eventually disappeared within the hour. At approximately
2:30 am, two star-sized objects were moving side-by-side simultaneously
far in the sky. Then they broke the pattern and descended, becoming bright
like the two objects we had seen earlier. One streaked the sky and disappeared.
The other hovered around for about ten to twenty minutes, travelling in
the fast, zigzag manner. It then faded and disappeared quickly." e-mail

- 3-Aug-98, Surrey: (2:30 pm) Ken was a
passenger in a car travelling west on Fraser Highway approaching 88th Avenue.
He observed a metallic disc-shaped object slowly travelling southeast,
and appeared to be over the power lines around 72nd Avenue. It appeared
to be the size of a small jet, but had no discernible wings or tail and
was travelling so slowly that if it had been a plane "it would have
fallen out of the sky". After about 30 seconds he lost sight of it
behind some trees. The sky was clear and blue.
- 3-Aug-98, White Rock: (11:00 pm) On a
lovely clear evening, before retiring for the night, the witness was laying
on his deck, staring up at the sky looking for satellites. He noticed two
objects travelling from the northeast to the southeast. They were travelling
in an offset formation, one object ahead and off to one side of the other
object. The objects were a faint orangey-brown colour, slightly translucent
("like a Klingon vessel de-cloaking") and about the size of a
pea held at arm,s length. The witness described the objects as "dove
shaped", or like the Foremost milk logo [his description sounded very
similar to the famous Kennneth Arnold sighting]. The total viewing time
was about 10 seconds and there was no noise.
- 4-Aug-1998, Terrace: (9:30 pm) "I
was taking pictures of the Terrace sunset on Kalum Lake Drive, a stretch
of road that heads north. It was 9:30 pm. After taking some photographs
around the Deep Creek area, I noticed three bright white lights located
to the left of the sunset. Excited, I snapped three photographs before
the lights shot away and disappeared. I then returned to the main road
in my car and noticed a red and white light pattern from the northeast
that seemed to move parallel to my vehicle. I grabbed two photos before
it faded off in the sky. I returned to town to discuss the incident with
my friends who had seen the lights at Red Sand Lake. [see 26-July sighting]
During this time, the back of my camera accidently popped open, briefly
exposing the film to light. It is likely that the film was damaged. I will
be developing the photographs within the week." - e-mail report by
- 6-Aug-98, Pitt Lake: (11:00 pm) "At
11:pm, I stepped outside to have a cigarette(I do not smoke in the house)and
looked up to see the full moon, all of a sudden an object with rotating
light around the edge and dark inner circle with yet another bright light
in the centre, came flying out of the light being cast from the Moon. This
object flew almost directly overhead at a speed of at least twice that
of a fighter jet. It was going south to north, and when it got to a point
near Pitt Lake it stopped dead for about 5 seconds, then made a wide zigzag
movement before taking off in it's original direction. I have seen many
meteors, planes, satellites and have owned a telescope for years, but I
have never seen anything like this before!...It was truly amazing!!!"
- 13-Aug-98, Prince George: (10:00 pm)
The observor was on his sun deck with a telescope to look at the stars.
He saw a starlike object moving in a westerly direction similar to a satellite.
The object was then observed to stop, then move north, then south, then
north again, and then headed west at a very great speed. He could discern
no size or shape, other than a white star-like appearance.
- 13-Aug-98, Surrey: (11:30 pm) The witness
was driving west on #1 Highway when he observed a large bright disc of
white light "drop out of the sky" and hover over the junction
of 176th Street and the Highway, about 600 meters away. The light appeared
to be the size of a 747 aircraft! He, and many others pulled off the Highway.
Rolling his window down and turning his motor off, he could hear no sound
from the object. After about 30 seconds the light took off at a rapid pace
into the clear sky. A call to the Surrey RCMP the following day elicited
confirmation from others who phoned in.
