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 the subject.
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.
Kerman, CA Sightings
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 narrow.
Thank you to the person for the reports.
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 place.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Scarborough, Ontario
Date: May 15 2004
Time: Approx 7:50-8:00 p.m.

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 stars.
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 witnesses.
Thank you to the witness for the report.

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 that point.
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.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
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

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 one.
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.
