British Columbia - Chases By A UFO On The Way To Work
Date: 60's and early 70's
While I'm remembering things, back in the 60's and early 70's I worked in the main Vancouver Post Office. One of the fellows I worked with was a Mennonite fellow the same age as me. He used to drive back and forth from Clearbrook as he was living with his parents. Being from a rather closed community he was quite naive about a lot of things. During the fall of 1965 he came into work one night and was quite visible shaken up by something which occurred on his way home the previous night. He told us he had just come off the Pt. Mann bridge and was cruising along about 70 Mph. when he noticed a bright white light in his rear view mirror. Thinking it was just another car coming up the hill from the bridge, he didn't pay to much attention. When he first saw it he figured it was probably several miles behind him but within seconds it was right over his car. He said it scared the crap out of him and he tried to put his foot through the floor and within seconds was doing over 120 Mph
He kept running through patches of thick dense fog and was terrified he was going to run into another vehicle but the object overhead scared him even more. After a few minutes it receded back to being just a light in the mirror but he said he kept his foot to the floor. Just before reaching his turn off it suddenly closed in on him again and hovered overhead. When he started to slow down for the turn off it backed off again as if watching to see what he was going to do. He said he was so scared he couldn't sleep all night. With his religious upbringing he thought it was the Devil chasing him. We told him it was more likely a UFO chasing him and then had to explain what a UFO was, apparently he had never heard of such a thing. The next night he came into work still all upset, he'd been chased all the way back to Clearbrook for a second time. That was enough for him, he arranged a place to stay during the week in Vancouver and only went home when he could drive during the day time with other cars around. As far as I know he has moved back to Clearbrook and is working there so he doesn't have to commute.
Thank you to the gentleman for relating this interesting story for us all to read.
Sumner, Washington.
I wanted to tell you that my journey started when I was 16 or 17. My family and I had just moved to Bonney Lake, Washington. It felt to me like we were going camping since we had moved from the Sea-Tac area (near Seattle Tacoma International Airport). Bonney Lake seemed so far away and way out in the sticks. I had grown up knowing or believing in UFO's because of my dad (who is deceased now)...he used to take me to Flying Saucer Conventions near Mt. Rainier when I was real little - they had many photo albums of pictures of UFOs. Anyway, I always believed in UFO's and always hoped to see one but really didn't think I'd ever be so lucky. We hadn't been living in Bonney Lake but a month or so and we were heading down Hwy 410 into Sumner on our way to the Sea-Tac area because I still went to school at Tyee High School - wanted to finish out my year there.
If it weren't for my step dad (who doesn't believe in UFO's) bringing it to my attention, I wouldn't have seen it. It still seems so weird to me the way he acted that day...he says, "(name removed), look at that UFO". I was doing my homework (it was a bright and sunny day early in the morning not a cloud in the sky) in the car - I looked at him and thru his driver side window was a UFO!! I was astounded! I couldn't take my eyes off of it. It was the classic saucer, silverish grey with a dome on top and where the dome and body of the saucer met seemed to be large round lights that were blinking in a row. (My step dad never looked back at it and drove like it was just another day - and he never said a word about it again for many, many years).
The thing kept up with us all the way down into Sumner on Hwy 410 until the 2nd exit into Sumner. It was right above the Rivergrove apts and the thing disappeared in front of my eyes - back then, I didn't know they could vanish - I thought it took off so fast that it seemed to disappear. I went to school and told everybody but nobody believed me. My step dad and I never talked about it for nearly 15 years - when I did ask him the first time in 15 years, he chuckled and said, "(name removed), I don't know what that was"....but after that and until this day, he says it was a jet. This was the beginning of my journey to learn all that I could.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
ENE of Newmarket Near Sharon, Ontario
Date: April 21, 2004
Time: 02:30 hrs
HBCC UFO Note: Pictures of an indentation have been provided from the fellow who contacted me. These were taken not by the witness, but by his friend. I am a waiting more information on this case. Also I am hoping I will be able to discuss the sighting with the actual witness. Case under investigation
Hi Brian:
Some weeks ago I received an excited call from a friend who lives near Newmarket, Ontario. He described being woken by what he described as a "whooshing" sound. He got up and looked out the window. About 60 yards distant, a cylindrical object was hovering over a pond on his property and a long tube appeared to be "sucking up water." It was not in a vertical position. Imagine a can sitting on the ground in a manner whereby it could be rolled. The object was hovering horizontally in a parallel plane.
Immediately when he had told me I had assumed it would be in the manner shown here:
I went to the property the following day. We discovered an L-shaped indentation in the soil. It looked as though it was caused by the pressure of a very heavy mechanical object.
He is hesitant in coming forward. I took some pictures of the indentation. My wife asked why "they" would choose his pond. I suggested my friend was giving away a free set of glasses with every fill up! How do you answer that anyway!?
Where I live, we are under almost daily aerosol activity and events which require a verbal dialogue to fully convey. I'll just write that I "feel" electricity and am aware of the invasive and electrical nature of unexplained "wounds" and that I sometimes trigger street lights!
Size: Approx 50-60 feet (I believe...I will check) Lights: Three on top...I believe they were greenish.(again will check) Color: I think he said greyish.
Craft took off in an easterly direction, hovering over the trees quite slowly. It then moved off at much higher speed in a diagonally upward direction. He doesn't know which direction it came from since he was woken by the sound of the water being taken on.
Interestingly enough the pond is man made, providing the soil with which to make a privacy berm next to the road.
Thank you to the fellow for passing along this interesting report.
Sumner, Washington Lights
Date: May (?) 2004
Time: 11:30 or 12 midnight
Last month my daughter (9 years old) and I got a terrible condition passed onto us by a puppy - it's embarrassing to say but we got sarcoptic mange. This puppy was really sick but we had no idea we could get it - not only did we get it but my neighbor down the street who took the other puppy got it and the friend that gave us the puppy got it too. Well, I had walked down the street to my neighbor's house to leave a note on his door that I got some medicine from the doctor's and had some left over for him. As I was walking back home, I was looking up to the sky which was clear, with only a few small clouds with lots of stars out. The thought went through my head that out of all the lights me and my friend (the one w/the videotape) see, most all are planes.
Just then, I crossed my yard to the front door and WOW, there was a super bright white light just beaming in the sky. The first thought I had was that it was awfully bright for a star - the planets had been aligned for weeks and I thought I had never seen the planets situated at that spot. I immediately ran in the house for my binoculars - I decided I was going to go up in my bathroom for a better view. The light had dimmed to a regular looking planet brightness but seemed to be in the same spot. I watched it and counted to 150 seconds when it slightly moved to the left - I could tell if it moved by watching the treetops. It moved a little more behind some steam that comes from the business in front of my apartment. It got hard to see...more time went on and it moved to the right behind some trees.
This is when I got irritated and out loud I said, "not behind the trees - I want to see you" just stayed there and it got bright and then dimmed so dim that it almost looked like a faint ring around the dim light - then suddenly it turned into 3 lights that were at a slant...these lights were blue, then it dimmed again almost to disappear and then bang, 3 lights at a slant again but they were bluish-green, almost turquoise - then the thing dimmed again almost to nothing and bang, there were 3 lights that turned bright orange -dimming again into just one white light which began to move to the right, slowly. I watched this thing slowly move to the right going towards Auburn but it only went so far and then bang - there were two bright white lights - soon I heard a train coming (I live right across the street from the train tracks). As soon as the train came, the one light blinked out and there was only one white light. My arm was getting tired of holding these old binoculars (they're old, my step dad gave them to me and they used to be his) - my arms were almost shaking because I had nothing to rest them against. I decided to stop watching this one light because it was moving so slowly and away from me - when I went downstairs, 2 hours had gone by! It still amazes me.
Additional Information below:
Now, I will try to answer your questions.
It all started with just one immensely bright white light that dimmed to look like a planet - it didn't twinkle, just white...when it moved to what looked like, behind the treetops - it was only that single light but it began to fade. It faded so much that all I could see was a faint haze that looked like a circle - it's hard to explain but it almost wasn't visible. After a few seconds, the area where the light was faded suddenly became 3 small balls of blue light, tightly together in a slanted position. I can't remember how many seconds went by when they all faded again to that hazy circle and then in the same position as the blue lights, they became bluish-green or turquoise (this color was so beautiful and odd to be seen in the sky, for me) - slanted and seemed to be exactly where the blue lights had been, few seconds later - they dimmed to one hazy circle (these hazy circles seemed to look grey to me, and then in the same slanted position as the earlier balls - they turned bright orange - after a few seconds, it was just a white light again and began moving towards Auburn.
The faint ring was all I could see of where the lights dimmed - they almost disappeared and there was no color, only a hazy circle that was kind of grey.
I'm not good at distance or direction (north, south, east, west) unfortunately - I must've been absent on those days at school...? All I know is that my binoculars are OLD, they used to be my step dad's and they aren't the best. I kept focusing in on things close to me so that I knew they would be focused better when looking further to the lights. The lights seemed to be near the treetops on the hill which I imagine would be North Hill Puyallup which goes into Edgewood and out towards Federal Way.
I did not hear any sounds other than cars going by - I live on (removed) which is a busy street in Sumner - and also heard the trains, can't help but hear those trains!
No, didn't hear any dogs or anything unusual but you know what was kind of unusual at that time was the lack of airplanes. I'm always watching the skies and I notice that sometimes they switch the flight patterns...there have been times when there aren't too many planes coming in from that direction to SeaTac Airport but at other times, it's crazy how many planes are coming in - seems they're one right after another but this night, I cannot remember seeing any planes for this whole time period - seems weird to me.
And yes, this happened in Sumner, Washington
The lights were like on the horizon, parallel with North Hill, Puyallup I was looking straight out my bathroom window towards the hill and up...that's why I thought it was so strange to see that bright white light in that position because it seemed too close and low in the beginning to be a planet or space station or satellite...?
I'm not positive but I think my home is about 26 miles from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. BOEING is out in this area but the nearest facility still open is Renton which must be 30 or so miles away. Mc Chord AFB and Fort Lewis are a good 20 miles away towards Spanaway...but where I seen the lights the closest airports are Sea-Tac and Auburn has a very small airport, not for commercial airlines.
I do not remember the exact date and time of the sighting but I will check this out for you - I tried to draw what I was seeing while I was watching but I'm not good at that so I gave up...I could've written the date and time on it - I just have to find it. I also sent an email to my best friend that night and sent it to her so she may still have it since she doesn't clean out her email very often - I'll have to get back to you on that. I believe it started about 11:30 or 12 midnight and lasted until 2:00 a.m. but I'll have to find out the date for you.
You take care Brian and thanks for listening.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Lost Pines, Central Texas
Date: Varies
Time: Varies
My wife and I have been seeing oddities for some time now, up here in the Lost Pines region of central Texas. On the June 17th at about 9:45 in the evening we we're watching shooting stars and satellites crossing the night skies, just like we always do when it is clear night. Well on this particular night we had just finished seeing quite a few satellites crossing paths, which was unusual.
When we both focused on a set of stars (we thought) shaped in a triangular fashion. That was when we noticed they (the 3 stars or lights ) were moving in unicent with one another, from North to South. The next nights we have seen almost directly overhead and to the South 20 degrees a very bright and stationary strobe like WHITE light very high almost in the distance of the satellites crossing, and it would flash about every 2-3 minute intervals in a stationary position. Last oddity that we have observed was on the 21st of June, just like every night watching the shooting stars and satellites. We were both watching all the satellites crisscrossing each others paths, mostly from North and South directions. When we caught a glimpse of a ( what we thought was another satellite moving from West to East. We watched it for about 8-10 seconds when it crossed a brighter star in it's path and did not continue beyond that point. Almost as if it docked. Both my wife and I are literally fascinated just how much unusual activity you can catch every night if you just take the time and enjoy it. We have also seen extremely bright white flashes that have lit up the top of the pine trees and from that center point have seen a very fast glowing object of some sort then streak Northward, and it wasn't a shooting star. We have seen to many in our life. Bottom line we are definitely not alone in this vast Universe. Just spend a hour each night instead of watching TV and look at the stars. You will be surprised just how active our night sky really is.
Eyes UP!
Thank you to the witnesses for this report.
Houston, B.C. Object Spotted Around Thunder Cloud
Date: June 21, 2004
Time: 3:29 p.m.
HBCC UFO Note: The only reason I am filing the sighting report below is due to receiving conformation that what I saw on June 21, 2004 was also witnessed by a couple who live just west from Houston, B.C.
We have had some extremely hot weather here in Houston, B.C., each day, starting in the afternoon we have had lighting and thunder storms roll in. Today the forecast is for the same.
On June 21, 2004 at approx: 3:29 p.m. I sat close to the window as I love watching this light show take place (rather not see it due to the fires it causes), but since we have no choice I sit and watch. The forked lighting was just incredible to see. One large thunder cloud which was at a distance away, all white and fluffy as it rose up into the air, gray near the bottom. I observed a black object sitting just outside of the fluffy white cloud. It wasn't a bird that I am sure of. I watched it maybe for 15 seconds before running to grab the binoculars. When I got back it has disappeared. For the brief time I was able to observe the object, it sat stationary "just" outside the cloud. So what it was, I don't know, but the object was certainly strange looking.
Today, I took my usual drive to the local shopping mall to pick up my postal mail. I needed some bread and milk so I walked into the local grocery store, and when I was heading for the milk section of the store, I heard a voice call me. I turned around and found a man and his wife walking towards me. The couple introduced themselves as I did not know them. He had heard that there was a UFO investigator living in Houston and when he saw the HBCC UFO Research logo on my sweatshirt he figured this had to be the guy.
The witnesses said on June 21, 2004 they were outside mending a fence on there property, the fellows wife was constantly looking up at the sky due to them hearing thunder rolling across the sky, plus she was a little nervous. She noticed a large thunder cloud in the distance in which she could hear claps of thunder coming from, so she had her attention trained onto this large cloud. The lady told me she again looked up at it and saw what appeared to be a disk shaped object. The woman thought it really odd so she tapped her husband on the head and at the same time telling him to look. Both stood watching the black colored object. The couple told me the object looked almost flat, but only once did they see it maneuver/tilt where it was on an angle which showed the circular shape of it. There were no lights, nothing really, just the blackened craft. It was to far away from them to hear any sound they said. The fellows wife said it was really weird because she had just looked at the same cloud not a minute or so before she noticed the black object, and there was nothing there at that time. Both figured they observed it for approx: one minute before it moved into the cloud and disappeared.
The couple said they have never seen anything so strange and certainly had not seen a unknown like this before.
Thank you to the witnesses for there report.
Texas, USA
Date: June 22, 2004
Time: 6:00 p.m.
Hi Brian
The info you asked for is:Time I saw it was approximately 6:00 p.m. on 06-22-04. Direction it was coming SEast to NWest. I taped it for 51 seconds. It seemed to move straight and then turned to the right slightly into the clouds. It never stopped or move erratically, and I didn't notice any noise. Usually when I tape a plane, it will show up as a plane.These orbs I don't understand, most of them I've taped are around airplanes (jets), but I have a couple from my wife's digital camera, like taking a picture of a sunset there will be one or two in it.
Mine and my wife's interest in the UFO realm started probably 25 years ago. We were fishing at a lake just enjoying the stars mostly when we saw what we thought was a satellite coming from the north. It was coming in a straight line till it got straight above us, then made a 90 degree turn to our right, went for a ways and made another 90 degree turn coming toward us, made another one going west and another one going on it's original route.This was in the 1980's, sorry I don't have times and dates,:(.We've both seen several different things since then. My wife was coming from town late one night in 1996 when she saw a light that immediately got her attention. She said she couldn't make out a shape but the light was a broken cross like a peace sign. She said she pulled off the road to witness it. She said it was turning off and on going across her path, It would be on and then go off. When it came back on,it would be a distance away. She watched it till it went behind trees. She said it was moving too slow to be a plane. I saw one the second Tuesday in July 1997, (don't remember the date) between 9:30 and 10:00 p.m..
I was sitting on our back porch with binoculars mostly seeing planes when this big light started coming over our house from west to east. I put the binoculars on it and it was like a boxcar that had a point, had one light at the front and five or six in a row down both sides. It didn't make any noise and when it went past I saw a red light on the right side, (wasn't blinking). The lights didn't illuminate anything like airplane lights do, so I didn't see what shape it was. I tried to get my wife out to see it but she didn't make it in time, she just saw a light in the distance.So I don't have a witness for that night, but, two nights later, same time approximately, on Thursday, it came over again. My son-in-law was with me and he had his binoculars. He couldn't believe what he was seeing. I just asked him the other day if he thought what we saw was a airplane. He said, Nope, that was no airplane, lol. I haven't seen it since, though I've been looking. Brian, this thing was huge. Sorry about those fires up there Brian, It's been extraordinary here, so wet I mean, and cool, 80's in the daytime, 60's at night, nearly July too. I'm working on you some different clips I've been collecting since Oct 2003, I'll send them to you soon as I finish finding them all. I'll keep an eye out for ya down here in Texas, if I see or tape something, you'll be the first to know...cya
Thank you to the witness for the reports and photos.
Winnipeg, Manitoba Lights
Date: June 24, 2004
Time: 11:00 p.m.
Not sure if it was a UFO, but about a month ago I was taking the garbage out around 1:00 a.m. and saw two light up above the clouds going around in circles. Almost like they were chasing each other.
Never saw then again until this Thursday, June 24, 2004. I was leaving one building at working going over to another for a workout at 11:00 p.m. and saw the two lights again above the clouds going around in a circle. This was in the South sky. When I came out an hour later they were still there. I went home, about 20 minutes away, still in the south end of Winnipeg and did not notice them. I went in for about an hour and then carried some boxes out to my car and saw two lights again above the clouds to the right of my apartment block. Then I noticed another two right above my head. So now there was 4. Two to the right of my building and going around in a circle, and two above my head and going around in a circle. I have never seen anything like that before. Just wondering if anyone else has seen these lights, or if you know what they are?????
Additional Information Below:
I will try my best to answer your questions.
The lights were green in colour, almost like the northern lights and the size of the lights would be roughly 2 feet wide. Both nights that I saw the lights it was cloudy and chilly out. I saw no aircrafts in the sky at all. The lights were going clockwise each time and I was not aware of any events taking place in Winnipeg. The sightings were about a month apart.
Viewing the lights; They were just there and just kept going around and around. I stood there for about 10 to 15 minutes and then went inside. I am not sure how long they were in sight for. I did return outside about an hour later and they were still there.
While watching them they did not stay the same distance apart. Sometimes they were one behind the other and then they were apart again. But all the time they kept going around in the circle. Close together then far apart, but never consistent.
It is 11:00 p.m. here right now, I just went out to see if I could see them. They are not there, but it is not cloudy here either. Weird! I am just curious to see if anyone else has spotted them. Like I said before, I have never seen anything like it. I am going to be up for awhile yet and will check later on it they are there again. I will let you know if I see them again.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
