Telkwa, B.C. - Ball Of Light Sitting Stationary
A aspiring politician reports
Date: 1997
Time: Evening
I went to the all candidates meeting on June 15, 2004. I arrived early so I sat outside talking with a gentleman who was running in our area in the upcoming Federal Election. He went on to explain that one evening back in 1997 he had gone outside of his home and saw a large ball of white light which was sitting stationary over the Bulkley Valley. The witness went on to say that what ever it was, was not very high at all. from his location which wasn't far from the object he could not hear a sound coming from it. It sat in one place, not moving an inch he said. Being baffled by what he was seeing, the witness stood watching to see if the object would move. after approx five minutes the light moved to the west and out of sight. The man said it was certainly a strange sight to see.
Thank you to the person for the report.
Douglasville Georgia - Glowing Rectangle
Date: May 28, 2003
Time: 5:47 p.m.
This appeared as a glowing rectangle, it moved in a arc and then stopped, them changed directions. it looks like a satellite but I didn't know they could stop an change directions. I've seen cluster UFO videos on TV and this reminded me of one of those cluster UFO's off to it self.
No problem glad to share the pictures, I occasionally sky watch have had an interest in UFO's since I was a kid and watched project UFO, but I have no interest in anything fake. (answers to questions)
It was moving from west to east approx. 10 o'clock position from directly overhead and it first appeared as a sphere or daylight star, then became a glowing white rectangle and moved quickly in an arc, then stopped. It never went behind the tree in the 1st picture, it was moving toward the tree and then stopped where you see it in the picture and then moved straight back away from me changing direction. I also zoomed past it with a Sony 8mm camcorder, I don't think it was in orbit. I believe it
was a small object, maybe the size of a car or smaller.
I asked if there was a military or airport close by - Suburban area, 30 miles west of Atlanta. Hartsfeild International Airport is about 35 miles to the east.

Douglasville Georgia - Reflecting Object
Date: July 3, 2003
Time: 3:00 p.m.
I saw this out the side of my eye, I thought it was space debris or either a plane reflecting sunlight. I watched it for a few seconds and got that weird feeling and I grabbed the camcorder and filmed it just in case.
When a plane fly's by I can clearly see the wings and if it reflects sunlight I can see the reflections dissipate as it moves and see that it is a plane. The sky was party cloudy that day and not gray skies as it appears in the pictures, I had no time to open the window to get a better picture, there is no screen on the window and the window is not tinted, but has black grids in the double panes (double paned thermal window) through the window I can clearly see a plane when one fly's by, but not this time. not sure how much the window affected these picture but what's on the picture looks like what I saw with my eyes. It was about 3:00 p.m. object heading west.

Douglasville Georgia - Triangular Lights.
Date: June 4, 2004
Time: 8:40 p.m.
I saw something similar to the triangle in the picture on on June 4, 2004. I video taped a minute or so of it, at first I thought it was the International Space Station or some other NASA craft. I live in Douglasville, Georgia and I saw this at 8:40 p.m. Not sure what it was but it didn't look like the usual high altitude plane reflecting sunlight. No vapor trial. I have some pictures taken from the video ta

Vernon, B.C. - Sky Watching Objects
Date: June 16, 2004
Time: 11:45 pm
Hello Brian
I have been out every night between the hours of 10:30 pm and 12:30 a.m. watching the skies. I have seen every night a gold globe brighten to white at least once a night. It appears in different parts of the sky and lately it has been appearing large and white as it comes from the south sky at 3500 feet before it dims. There were three occurrences of brightening last night at
low altitudes. Two in the west, and one in the south. Last night at 11:45 there were four globes (approx 10-15 seconds behind each other) coming from the south and within a short distance ascended to satellite height (except for the last one which went behind a small cloud) and vanished in the same part of the sky marked by the triangle formation above Jupiter. When the last one was out of sight I saw a gold yellow streak about four inches long and as thin as a hair,in the sky heading toward the WNW horizon at 85 degrees or like a plane does as it approaches the horizon looking at it from a distance. The streak lasted less than half a second from appearing to disappearing suggesting that whatever is at the front of it is moving at a phenomenal speed.
I have seen these streaks about five times and all heading down to the horizon. They move so fast that I was at first not sure if I was actually seeing them. I ruled out light reflecting through spider webs, eye lashes and hair in front of my eyes. They seem to move faster than a meteorite!!! as the speed accelerates, and it is less than a half second to catch it.
Just after the streak in the west a globe came through the cloud and brightened. It was over the airport around 4000 ft. It vanished too.I stayed outside for an hour after for more,but I saw nothing else. I was awake all night I was so awe struck, contemplating the speed of whatever was in front of that streak,and the chance to see it in conjunction of seeing the globes ascend to "satellite" height before it happened. It was phenomenal. May be others have seen these streaks and first thought " meteorite,.. but it seems faster"
Take care, I am still blown away Brian.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Nelson, British Columbia
Date: June 16, 2004
Time: Approx: 11:55 p.m.
I had a telephone call from a couple who reside in Nelson, B.C. who witnessed an odd sight. They report that while traveling north along the Kootenay River on highway 3A they saw what appeared to be an egg shaped object which sat stationary over the River. Around the center of it was a broken ring of blue lights, they said there was a good number of these lights which were very bright and not flashing. The witnesses guessed the object was at an altitude of about 500 to 600 feet above the river. The husband who was driving wanted to stop to investigate this unusual sight, but due to his wife being frighten they kept moving but at a slower pace as he was certainly curious to know what this was. A short distance down the highway his wife looked behind to see if it was still there, but she could not see any thing. They said whatever it was had disappeared or turned out it's lights. The husband estimates that the object was 40 to 50 feet in length at the most. They heard no sound, but they told me the windows were rolled up in their vehicle and the radio on. One other thing they commented on, the object having a completely smooth surface to it, or at least the areas they could see clearly.
The husband said he is kicking himself now that he didn't stop to have a good look at the object.
Thank you to the witnesses for their report.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Scoop Mark And Scar
Posted: June 17, 2004
When I was about 10 years old the strangest thing happened to me one morning when I woke up....I woke up in the oddest way....almost perfectly from lying on my back...It was as if the upper half of my body just sat up without thinking of moving my legs. Like I was laying completely flat on my back on an operating table. When I did wake up I for some reason looked down at my knee...there was no pain ...only an almost perfect ring of blood.
The ring was almost a closed circle but not quite.....There was no opening where the blood should have come from...I checked all over my body and no blood...only on my knee and no opening there. It wasn't smeared on the sheets it was no where on the bed ...only on my knee...I'm was always a pretty restless sleeper and thought this odd.....I wiped it away and there was still no opening visible....Years later as I grew older and bigger there was a noticeable scar on my knee...all this happened by the way on my left knee about an inch off the knee cap on the upper left hand side. I never knew where I got that scar from but when I first looked at my knee the morning with the blood it was not there ...I only noticed it years later and never thought of equating the two together until a couple years ago. I'm now 37.
Have you heard of similar experiences?
Additional Information:
It was in Philadelphia Pa when it happened when I was about 10 I'm 37 now so we are talking 27 years ago.....the other mark on my lower right leg ...on my ankle is about a few years old ..I don't remember getting that either.
Also there was another strange incident that happened when I was about 24 or 25 happened in the inner city of Philadelphia.....there was this strange humming noise all over that me and a few of the people I knew heard ...but no one else claimed hearing it was about 10 people in all that heard it was just a constant hum all over the place with no location was in the air ...for a few blocks radius. One person I knew thought he was loosing his mind because of the hum. I should also mention I lived only about a mile at that time from the Philadelphia Navy yard ...where that "Philadelphia experiment" was suppose to have taken place.

Vancouver, B.C. - Looked Like A Big Paper Airplane
Date: June 19, 2004
Time: Approx: 10:30 a.m.
Good afternoon Brian, had to run into Vancouver this morning to get something and approx: 10:30 am. my wife and I had just cleared the Alex Fraser Bridge and were heading west across the Richmond bypass. I was just casually watching the planes as they made their approach to YVR, 26R. I was the passenger so could just relax and enjoy the ride. I noticed what I first thought was a small plane just to the south of the approach and about half a mile ahead of us. It was heading west also, but to my surprise we were rapidly overtaking it. I pointed it out to my wife but she insisted it was just a plane and I pointed out I don't think so it doesn't have any wings. The road curved and that put it on the drivers side of the van. by this time it was only about a 1/4 mile or less away. We were only doing about 100 klicks but rapidly overtook and passed it. I lost sight of it due to the tinting on our back windows and the angle. We would have been at approx:. No. 7 Rd. when we passed it. Estimated speed approx:. 30 klicks, appeared to be small perhaps 20 ft. in length, was well below the glide path, estimated height under 1000 ft., no engines or noise that I could detect. Appeared to be white on top and darker on the sides and bottom but that could just be shadow. From some angles it just looked like a big paper airplane. Attached is a sketch to give you a rough idea what it looked like. For once I had a witness besides myself, tho to my wife anything that flies and dosn't have feathers or flap its wings, then its a plane. Had it insight for approx. two minutes.
Thank you to the witness for the report and graphic.
Windsor, Ontario Red Lights
Date: June 20, 2004
Time: 12:15 a.m.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 4
Shape of objects: Balls of red light.
Full Description of event/sighting: I was star-gazing with my boyfriend in his back yard. We were facing east and looking at the portion of the sky where the Northern Cross lies (at least I think that's its official name). It was a very clear night, and prior to our UFO sighting we saw what my boyfriend says were satellites. I also saw a shooting star as well.
It was just after midnight (I'm not sure exactly what time because neither of us had a watch on), when all of a sudden four balls of red light coming from the south darted across the sky in front of us. They slowed down to a stop, made right-angled turns to the east and then disappeared. They were not flying close together but were spread apart. I started to laugh as they slowed to a stop because I couldn't believe that they were actually flying in "military V formation"!! Well, it wasn't an exact "V" but it was close. The whole incident lasted about 10-15 seconds at most.
Additional Information below:
Hi Brian.
This is the first time I have ever seen a UFO. It's the kind of thing you read about but never expect to experience. I heard your interview with Whitley Strieber a while back and that's why I went to your site to report it. The red lights did not flash at any time. Like I said, the whole incident happened very quickly. But when they stopped in the air, I could have sworn that there was a solid red light in the centre with sort of a hazy ring of red light around that centre. And this might sound strange, but the only word that comes to mind when I want to describe them is "translucent". I did not notice any other colours.
I remember seeing one small plane in the area around that time. We do live under a flight path that heads towards Detroit Metro Airport, and have our own local airport as well. However, the direction these objects came from, and headed towards, was definitely not the same flight path. The only other objects in the sky were the satellites. The first satellite I saw (and the lone shooting star) followed that same flight path.
The question of height is a hard one to answer but I'll try. As I said in my report the objects were spread out from each other in what seemed like the full length of the Northern Cross -- at first anyway. When they first appeared I would have to say they were closer to the height of a small winged plane, maybe lower. When they stopped and turned they were about the height of a jet liner. I'd have to say that the objects were about the size of my thumbnail. If these objects were parts of one object, well then we must have been standing on an airport runway directly under a jet liner as in was about to touch down. I hope that makes sense. I hope that my answers were helpful and thank you for responding to my report. If you need any clarification on my answers don't hesitate to ask.
Additional Information: Witness # 2
Ok.. a little background. I've been into astronomy at an amateur level for years. I can name most major constellations, I've seen everything from satellites, bolides, meteorites and an actual meteor that entered the atmosphere and broke up. I also have been into military history and aviation. I've always played flight simulators as long as they've been available to the public. I live near the Riverside Decent area for Detroit Metro Airport. I was getting my pilots license for a while but never finished. I also live right under our Windsor Airports major ILS approach. So I see every type of aircraft day and night.
I've also seen every type of aircraft you can imagine at air shows including both stealth aircraft etc, and I have been interested in UFO's for years. I've got many books, however I've never really been a "true" believer until last night.
It was finally the first clear cool night to look at the stars so I took (name removed) into the back yard to sit and look at the stars. Finally it was clear enough to at least spot some major constellations. The light pollution near Detroit is horrible. Generally you cannot see satellites from my area. Also for a change there was no air traffic in the area. Most of the time you can point out at least 2-3 high level planes 20-30k.
When we first went outside she said she saw a light moving across the sky.. I looked but could not see it.. We both have jokingly said we wanted to see a UFO for weeks and here was our chance. I told her she was seeing things and joked with her again. However I didn't realize how much better her eyesight was :)
We sat down and she spotted another light moving near the Northern Cross.. I finally got the binoculars out and saw it. I tracked it moving from north to south across the Northern Cross. It was at a constant rate of speed, that which was consistent with a satellite. From that point we saw several of them all white in color just like a star moving around in straight patterns. I was pleased to get a nice view for a change. We focused our attention on that part of the sky for most of the night.
Then we were just looking up and a star that was stationary just started to move out of the blue.. I was thinking this was weird. It then moved across the sky and then disappeared. Most satellites will continue to move and will seem to slow as they move towards the horizon. This one just disappeared. We both were like wow that was cool. I jokingly told her to meditate and tell the UFO's to give us a show. (Since I read allot into UFO abductions and I know a few people who've had close encounters I know a bit about the subject.. She admitted to me she's had some weird dreams in the past and I've suspected she could be an abductee). So she sat silent and we joked again .. I told her to tell them "I want to believe" etc etc.. We were both wishing to see some real UFOs and sharing a nice romantic moment.
Then 2 minutes later out of the blue I saw 3 reddish lights. They were really high altitude just like satellites. Moving WAY faster than satellites. 2 of the 3 of them converged on each other in a... intelligent fashion I'd have to say. They started out to the right of the Northern Cross (looking east it would be coming from the South) and moved toward Deneb.. when all 3 arrived in formation they TURNED at a 90 degree angle almost seemed to stop and then shot off toward the east. My girlfriend said she saw 4 of them. I only saw 3 because I was mainly in shock as seeing the 2 of them converging into a formation.
It was like a turning point in my life. I've seen video footage of behavior like that before, like during the Shuttle mission where it looked like they were shot at from the ground etc and other footage of the night sky. It was just like that.
The stars were maybe a tad bigger than stars but they were not big. The color would be best described at crimson. This wasn't a triangle craft or anything like that. It was separate objects in formation closing in on each other.. arriving then shooting off in another direction. It happened all in 5 seconds. The lights were constant, and not blinking.
After all these years of watching the skies and never being rewarded.. I finally have seen something I cannot explain. The next night (last night) I took her out into the country an hour away and we sat and watched the stars on a great night again.. to see if they'd come out again. We saw many many shooting stars, satellites .. but nothing out of the ordinary. Some of the satellites seemed to slow down and wobble left to right but I figured it has something to do with the proximity to the stars they were passing by. One satellite amazed us both. It moved in an exact straight line, but it blinked on and off very slowly but regularly. I've never seen a satellite do that. This blinked on for 2 seconds.. then off for 2 seconds. It seemed to move faster than normal. But I still figure its a Satellite.
Sorry if I'm rambling on. It was finally something to validate all the years of reading. Maybe we are not alone!!! (and I highly doubt the US Gov has gotten this far this soon).
Let me know if you have any more questions. Damn it was 5 seconds of glory.. now I wish I had a closer more vivid encounter.. Just as long as they don't pick us up ! :)
Thank you to the witnesses for their report.
Columbus, Ohio - Oblong Caught On Film
Date: June 20, 2004
Time: 7:00 a.m.
Number of witnesses: Just the 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Oblong
Full Description of event/sighting: I'm a professional photographer. A client hired me to shoot some building pictures. The building faces North, so I wanted to get the shot very early. I was there at sun rise, (6:30 am or so) On each scene of the building, I shoot four or five shots, varying the zoom, but not the angle . On one sequence I shot four shots. On the second shot there was an object in the sky. The shutter speed was set at 60th, and the object is blurred some. It appears to have two small attachments to it. It is not a bird or plane. I can e-mail you the shot if you wish. I have been a pro since 1970, and shot a lot of outdoor shots. This one has me stumped. This was shot on a Nikon D100 digital camera, using a 17mm to 35mm zoom lens. This is a quality camera and lens. The lens costs more than the camera. Neither is prone to malfunction, and the lens is known for it's anti-flare. If you look closely at the image, you can see the object in the sky is lit by the sun in the correct angle. In my mind, this eliminates the malfunction theory.
Thank you to the witness for the report and the photo.
