- Time: 7:55 a.m.
- Local call to report.
- Daylight sighting
- Tonight on Friday, March 7, 2003 at approx: 8:30 p.m.
I received a telephone call from two local Houston, B.C. residents who
wanted to report something very strange they had seen on March 3, 2003
at approx: 7:55 a.m. The two witnesses were at the same location here in
town when they made the call to me here at HBCC UFO Research.
- The reason why the witnesses decided to tell their story
was due to the newspaper articles which ran on the UFO Survey, and myself
in out local newspaper this past Wednesday. They also told me they both
spent sometime trying to make up their minds if they should actually call
me over what they saw.
- The first thing one of the fellows said to me was, "my
buddy and I saw something very weird the other day, and are still questioning
ourselves over what we saw". He went on to say there was himself and
his friend in his truck travelling along highway #16 just east from Houston,
B.C. Since it is getting lighter earlier these days, the fellows witnesses
this object in the daylight.
- Just before they got to Perow, there is a large farmers
field which runs for a long way, and also runs along side the highway with
a buffer of trees between the field and the highway. His friend was the
passenger in the truck and first noticed a large object paralleling them
along the highway. The driver looked at the speed they were travelling
and said he was doing approx: 50 kilometers an hour. The distance between
the witnesses and the object would have been approx: 300 to 400 feet. So
they both had a very close up look at it. (keep in mind there were the
trees in between the truck and object which did hinder the view at times).
Also the field drops down somewhat below the highway, so the forestry workers
did not get a good look at the bottom of this craft.
- They both described the object as looking like an "Air
Stream Trailer", and the size was close to the a Greyhound Bus. It
was metallic in color, and no other features could be seen on it. No lights,
windows, nothing !! The object stayed straight across from their truck
as they drove along, as I mentioned above. It paced their veicle !! The
passenger had rolled down the window to see if he was able to hear any
sound coming from this object, but none was heard, it was silent. After
approx: 3/4 quarters of a kilometer the craft turned slowly away from the
highway, wobbled slightly, sped up, wobbled once again and then shot off
out of sight very quickly.
- HBCC UFO Note: Since the object was so low, and on the
other side of the standing trees, I asked if they had observed any moment
in the trees. Such as any disturbance which would have moved the tress
in anyway. None was noticed. Something else I should add. When the witnesses
mentioned that is wobbled, one of the fellows said it was like looking
through a heat wave, which gave it a look as if it was slightly wobbling.
Also both of the man made comments to one another, saying it was so strange
and not a normal aircraft as it had no wings on it's body. He also mentioned
due to the type of work he is involved with he had made many trips on different
aircraft, and what he and his friend saw was "no" aircraft they
know of. I am also going out tomorrow to grab some pictures of the area
where the sighting took place. I hope to have some drawings and more information
after I sit down and chat with the two witnesses over the weekend. There
is more to this story to come.

- Time: approx: 4:05 a.m.
- I was over at Country Wide Stationary today (March 4,
2003) and a fellow had read the logo on my winter coat. (HBCC UFO Research)
He asked what it was all about, in which I explained what it was I was
up to. This man, a logging truck operator, had left the town of Houston
driving up the Morice River Road heading approx: 100 kilometers out across
the Reach to pick up a load of logs. He went on to say when he reached
the 30 kilometers mark on the Morice River Road, he witnessed "one"
bright white light high in the sky heading in his direction. As the light
got closer to him, he watched the light split up into two parts, with both
pieces flying in different directions. He said one part went west and the
other east. What was so amazing was that the two lights shot back up into
the sky and disappeared. The sighting lasted approx: 6 to 7 seconds at
- He was so surprised and excited at what he just saw,
he got on the truck radio and asked other drivers on the road if anyone
had witnessed what he just did. Two other drivers who were in the same
area reported back to him that they also witnessed the same thing.
- HBCC UFO Note: I have the name of one of the other drivers
and will be speaking to him tomorrow to take his report. I was told that
a number of logging truck drivers on their early morning hauls have seen
a number of strange things in the sky, so I am also looking into these
as well. Also I had a telephone call from a fellow from Prince Rupert today.
He asked if I would be around today as he wanted to drop in on his way
to Alberta. I met with him at my home and we had a really nice visit.
He also told me about an amazing sight he witnessed in the Prince Rupert
area. I am certainly going to be taking the trip up to visit with him later
on when he comes home from Alberta.
- Take care

- First of all, my thanks to Mr. Peter Davenport, director
of the National UFO Reporting Center for making me aware of a sighting
which took place on February 22, 2003 at Mill Bay on Vancouver Island.
This report looks as if it goes hand in hand with the two reported sightings
at Kitimat and the sighting between Terrace and Prince Rupert, British
Columbia on the same evening.
- Two Alcan aluminium smelter employees while at work,
noticed a "large" disk shaped object travelling very slowly over
the Douglas Channel. The object was reported being very low off the Channel
and rose up to clear the mountains to the north. One of the witnesses I
have talked with said the both of them stood completely still with their
mouths wide open watching this thing ! "They said if there had of
been any change in direction, meaning towards them. They don't think either
of them would have been able to move". Large, very bright white lights
were noticed shinning on the water, and this is what caught their attention
to the craft. Since the object was so low, and casting a bright light onto
the water, it lit up a good sized area which made a portion of the object
visible to them. No other lights were reported being seen, other than what
they saw hitting the water's surface. It made no sudden moments until it
gradually gained altitude to climb up over the mountain. The men witnessed
this event for approx: 2 minutes. I witness said they both knew for certain
that what they were looking at was no normal aircraft that they new of,
mainly due to it's size and speed. Plus they never have seen anything shaped
like that before. No noice was reported coming from the object.
- HBCC UFO Note: (Still working on this case, and hope
to find someone else who may have seen this as well).

- A couple driving home from Prince Rupert to Terrace,
B.C. and approx: 85 kilometers west out of Terrace when they witnessed
a huge object travelling north across the Skeena River. (HBCC UFO Note:
The Skeena River widens out a lot at this point and can be up to two miles
or more across the valley as it heads to the ocean). The object itself
was dark in color, or black. Again what caught the attention of the motorists
was the bright lights which were seen on the bottom of the object. Two
large, almost rectangular lights could be seen glowing from the bottom
of the object. Also they said it moved so very slowly which they found
really strange. When I talked with the husband, he said he wanted to pull
over to get a better look as he was driving, but his wife was frightened,
crying and "insisted" that he keep going and quickly. No noise
again was reported coming from the object, but the couple were in their
car travelling around Highway #16. It was certainly a disk shaped craft.
He also mentioned that there were other vehicles on the road at the time,
(not many) and someone else must have seen it. The sighting lasted for
approx: a minute and a half at the most from what he told me. I asked the
husband roughly how high the object was off the ground as it travelled.
He said it was high enough to clear all the mountains in the area. (HBCC
UFO Note: On this route from Prince Rupert to Terrace you travel straight
through the West Coast Mountain range which is very rugged. I am not sure
as to the elevation where this event took place, but it would have to be
around 2500 to 3000 feet. I will be checking this out as well. I plan to
meet with all of the witnesses just as soon as the weather cooperates.
- Anyway, this gives everyone an idea of what just took
place, three reports, one coming from Vancouver Island, Kitimat and in
between Terrace & Prince Rupert all on the same night. Plus there is
not a lot of time difference between each of the sightings. When I meet
with these folks I will see if they can draw a rough sketch of what they
saw, and of course try to get a lot more detail on these sightings. From
Houston, B.C. where I am it is another 3 hour drive to Terrace, B.C, then
you head east for approx" another half hour to get to Kitimat, B.C.
So a long drive there and back again.

- Received Report - February 20, 2003
- I had a witness call from Smithers, B.C. this morning.
She mentioned to me that her husband thought she was seeing things, but
it sounds like she was certainly witnessing something rather strange. The
woman was up with her baby at 2:40 a.m. and has a great view of Hudson
Bay Mountainand the ski runs, (which is located in Smithers). Actually
the witness sits at the base of the mountain. Her blinds were semi open
and allowed her to see a very bright light crossing the mountain, and then
coming to a complete stop over one of the largest runs, which is called
"Cold Smoke". She went on to say the light was dead center of
the run, and wondered if it was just hovering, or "maybe' it had landed.
She also reported hearing a clicking sound from the direction of the object.
(HBCC UFO Note: My son lived a while back in the very same area as the
witness lives now, and I know many sounds bounce off the mountain which
allows everyone to hear different noises much clearer). The object moved
from east to west before coming to a complete stop over the run. Approx:
5 minutes went by and a train could be heard coming in the distance and
the object disappeared. "Her words, turned off". After the train
had come and passed, and approx: one hour later , the object once again
showed up. She knew the times for certain as she was up with their baby.
- After the second time the light showed up, she said I
got frightened and closed the blinds. I asked if she could describe the
color of the light to me, she went on to say it was a extremely bright
white, with an orangy light coming from the center. The light moved quicker
than a helicopter, or any small plane that she knew of. (keep in mind that
this light was spotted travelling some distance just below the peaks of
the mountain and came to a sudden stop above the ski runs).
- When the witness observed the light the second time,
or after the train had long passed. She did not notice the light moving,
but just showed up in exactly the same position it was observed before.
The second sighting only lasted a couple of minutes. She reported her cat,
which was also sitting on her bed, perked it's ears up looking in the direction
of the window. I asked her an appro: size to the light. She said it may
have been half of her thumb nail and round in shape.
- HBCC UFO Note: After I received the telephone call I
called the Smithers Ski Hill in Smithers to ask if any equipment was working
on the runs around the time of the witnessed sighting. I was told work
was being done on four runs throughout the early morning, and would be
continuing throughout this week and over the weekend in the wee hours.
This sighting may be the result of grooming equipment working on the ski
hill, "but", what puzzles me is that the object was spotted travelling
an appro: 3 kilometers along the mountain before it came to a stop. I also
just called the witness back to clear up one point about this sighting,
and that was, did she see the object before it got close to the ski runs??
She said yes, I observed the light as it traveled over rough terrain, then
got to the runs and stopped. So still puzzled at what was seen.
- HBCC UFO Note: This sighting was not caused by Grooming
equipment, or anything else made made. I have determeined that this sighting
is an unexplained.
