Burnaby, B.C. Three Disc Shaped Craft
Date: August 1952
Time: 2:00 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 3 plus
Number of objects: 3
Shape of objects: Round flattened.
Full Description of event/sighting: My husband and I saw the children looking up at the sky and went to check. It was bright daylight and directly over our head were 3 disc shaped craft close together and stationary. They appeared metallic, whitish grey and there were no windows, lights or other attachments.
My husband was a former wireless air gunner and he estimated them to be about 500 feet up and about fifty feet in diameter. They looked like a large Frisbee but they were solid, thick and had a rounded edge. We watched then for about fifteen minutes. We had no camera. Suddenly they started to move straight up at a terrific speed but at an angle and we watched then until they were a small speck in the cloudless sky. I have read about a lot of strange lights at night but this was unmistakable. We were directly beneath them so we could not see their upper side. Just the underneath. There were dozens of calls to the police to report it but the Government put a blackout on the reports.
Thank you to the eyewitness for the interesting report.
Red Deer, Alberta A Lens Type Of Craft
Date: Spring of 1969
Time: Evening
Message: I am so glad I found you! I have been waiting nearly 40 years to report this sighting. It was the spring of 1969, at my parents' home 4 miles east of Red Deer, Alberta. My mother, my older brother and a friend of his, were outside bidding goodnight to the friend who was leaving. We were on 5 acres in the middle of farm land - virtually no light pollution. We were all in the habit of watching the sky, day and night, for weather patterns, birds, shooting stars, northern lights, and was our habit, were standing on the lawn in the soft spring darkness, admiring the stars, when one of us said 'what's that?'
We all observed, moving from the west towards us, a shape that blurred the star field as it passed. There was also a slight color change, as if the black night sky had been given a magenta wash where the shape was. It seemed immense, somehow watching it gave a feeling of hugeness - vaguely oval. It was creepy, seeing the sky ripple. This lens? stopped above us. A rectangle of light, white/pale yellow, opened in the side of this thing, and three globes, the same light, came out, descending slightly and then taking off in three directions. The door of light closed.
I don't remember the shape disappearing, only the four of us sort of shaking our heads, looking at the grass, and then going inside. There was on airbase not too far away, which my brother phoned - guess what they said it was...a weather balloon! Is that too funny or what.
Thank you to the person for the interesting report.
F4-Phantom Weapons Control Technicians In The USAF Observe Three Oval Crafts
Date: August 1978
Time: 5:30 a.m.
Number of witnesses: 3
Number of objects: 3
Shape of objects: Oval
Full Description of event/sighting: Driving from home in Wrightwood, CA to work at George AFB in a 2-door sedan with 2 co-workers eastbound on Hwy 18 between Sheep Creek Rd and Hwy 395 near Phelan, CA. Myself and other witnesses were F4-Phantom Weapons Control Technicians in the USAF. My eastbound view was of mountains on horizon with first glow of sunrise behind mountains. Weather calm and completely clear. 1st large oval rises up from directly behind mountains due east from me. Motion is slow, floating like a blimp or balloon. At first I thought it was a large blimp with a mirror-like exterior reflecting the sunlight (sun was below the eastern horizon during the entire encounter), object was extremely bright, yet had a distinct oval outline. After rising a few degrees above mountains object stopped all motion. Total time to rise up was about 2 minutes. Second identical object then began to rise just to the left of the first object.
Second object moved identically to first, then stopped next to first at equal altitude. Third identical looking object then began to rise just to right of first object, at same slow rate, until it was at equal altitude with other 2 objects. All three objects remained still for about 2 more minutes. Very curious sight at this time, but all witnesses still thought objects were blimps. Right-most object then begins to rise slowly above others, stops completely, then moves from a complete stop to a point slightly above the horizon almost directly due south of us (visible out the right side of the car) in about 2 or 3 seconds then comes to a complete stop again. No acceleration or deceleration was apparent. Middle object then does exactly the same, stopping next to the other above the southern horizon. Third object then repeats the same exact maneuver. When all 3 were stopped hovering next to each other then all 3 objects slowly descended towards the ground until disappearing on the southern horizon. Objects retained their extreme brightness throughout the entire encounter, even when in a position near the southern horizon where there was no sunlight to reflect in my direction. All witnesses agreed with each other not to speak of the sighting due both to fear of ridicule, and due to the fact that all of us were under orders to speak of any potential UFO sightings ONLY to our commanding officer (to my knowledge all AF personnel, including myself and the witnesses, at the time were required to sign a statement acknowledging the order upon enlisting in the AF).
Thank you to the eyewitness for the interesting report.
Menifee, California Saucer
Date: 1993
Time: Approx: 9:00 p.m.
Location of Sighting: Desert.
Number of witnesses: 3
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Saucer
Full Description of event/sighting: This happened when we were living in California. I was with my mom and brother, I was probably around 6, my brother 11. I guess there was a meteor shower or something so we took a drive out to nowhere, just desert with mountains in the distant, this kind of setting may be hard to find now but remember this was 10 years ago :P. So keep the picture in your head I want you to see exactly what we did. We are coming home from stargazing now and all you see is flat, kind of sandy, dirt everywhere and a straight road in front of you and mountains on the left.
We were driving straight ahead, no other cars on the road and we came across these water pump things, and hovering over them was a huge craft! The best way I can describe this thing was it looked like a stereotypical saucer. The kind of things you would see in cartoons. A saucer shape, with the glass kind of bubble on top, black all the way around it and blinking lights on the sides. The lights blinking though is the thing that confuses us the most because the colors of the lights were red, white and blue, government craft??? We have no clue. Now you won't believe this but it was within I'd say 100 yards away from us on the left side of the road!! And so you get a feeling of what we saw, it wasn't "a light in the sky". It was like, well imagine standing in your driveway and looking across the street at the house on the other side and only hovering about 50 yards off the ground. That's the best way I can describe the distance away from us and the size of this thing. And it made NO NOISE!
We just drove slowly along, staring at it, and it was going the same speed as us in the same direction, I guess following us in curiosity. We were in awe, we had no clue what to think or do at the moment and I was only 6 so I got out of my seat in the back of the van and crawled in between the two front seats. Then out of nowhere the thing literally was behind the mountains that were way off in the distance in 2 seconds!! We sped down the road to get a look behind the mountains and it wasn't there. I still cant believe what we saw to this day. I really wish others could have seen it. Since then it's hard not to look up every 5 seconds.
Thank you to the person for the interesting report.
Sutherland - Bangor (Sutherland Shire), Australia An Object The Diameter Of The Moon
Date: Spring or Summer 2000
Time: 7:00 p.m.
It all happened in the year 2000 at around 7:00 p.m., it was a clear night in spring or summer and there was little traffic-no traffic on the road.
We were coming back from the local swimming pool at Sutherland to Bangor when we saw this unusual light in the sky. I was 7 or 8 years old and my sister who was about 11 at the time and we both saw it including my mum who was driving. I know what planes, helicopters and blimps sound like at night and look like. This was nothing like it.
At first it was pretty far away but still amazingly bright it had a phosphorous glow. I think that's the word. As we kept driving it moved closer rapidly until it was about the diameter of the moon in the sky. It started moving up and down at rapid speeds much faster than any plane or helicopter or blimp could move. Then it would hover and move rapidly again. There were about 3 or 4 bright holes or 'windows' on the sides of it that were shining out an amazingly bright lights.
My sister, mum and I went round a corner and the object was out of sight for a second then we saw it again and there were two metallic bars protruding. I cant be sure if it was bottom, top or side because I was young and trying to make explanations up for it at the time.
Our car didn't have air conditioning so our windows were open at the time, and it was a fairly quiet night on the road and this object made no sound at all. Now a helicopter would have made a sound, most likely a plane but this was obviously not a plane, and a blimp, helicopter, plane or whatever explanation you might have could not move at such a speed or look such a way.
It disappeared as we went down my street. We leaped out the car, ran onto the top story verandah and scanned the sky for it, but it was gone and we were left speechlessly amazed.
Thank you to the eyewitness for the interesting report.
Fullerton, California
Date: January 18, 2000
Time: 2:30 p.m.
Location of Sighting: On freeway going to Las Vegas
Number of witnesses: 5
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Saucer
Full Description of event/sighting: Actually I was at home when it occurred. But when my family returned from their trip to Vegas, my mother asked me, guess what happened to us ? She had video tape in her hand and then put it on. First thing that crossed my mind is we are rich as they must of hit the jackpot playing the slot machines in Vegas. I thought it was going to show my mom receiving a giant size check. Like in the pub, warehouse drawings. But when she hit play what I seen, shocked me! It showed a huge saucer hovering over the mountain.You could here my family talking in the background. In the video my mom zooms in and gets a great shot of the UFO. It is like no other I've ever seen before. I still have the video with the footage about 5-10 minuets long. I once tried calling Fox news and I left a message and I never got a response. And at the time I didn't have access to the internet so I didn't know how to about to report my footage. I would appreciate it if you contact me. I've been dying to show it to someone.
Thank you to the person for the interesting report.
Between Cincinnati Ohio and Lawrenceburg Indiana Objects With Lights
Date: End of March or Beginning of April 2005
Time: Evening ?
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: Many
Shape of objects: Shaped like ovals, slightly pointed on each side.
Full Description of event/sighting: Well, I was driving home on 275 south, could have been closer to middle of the night, and I looked up into the sky and could see something hovering above, it wasn't moving. It had different colored lights flashing going around the bottom though, but as I kept looking I could see more of them to the right of that one. It was as far as I could see, and none seem to be moving except for the lights at the bottom and they all looked like the same object. They were at least 5 car lengths apart from each other. They were all dark colored with lots of different colored lights under them that went around. I thought, what in the world was this at first, but thought it had to be something to do with some kind of air test. Due to so much traffic there was that night, other people had to of seen it too. So finally I just tried to forget it, as though it wasn't important if it didn't seem to matter to anyone else. I figured if anyone else thought it was as unusual they would of stopped by the side of the road to take a closer look. I myself thought about it, but didn't, don't know why now. They seemed to be in a straight line too. So if you know it was some kind of air test then I would appreciate it if you would let me know. Thank you.
Thank you to the person for the interesting report.
Bloomington Indiana Unknown Objects In The Sky
Date: April 3, 2005
Time: Early a.m.
Conditions were clear
Witnesses: Self, Alice Evans, and John Tosti..
time early a.m.
After we taped the cigar shaped object behind the farm, we traveled to the front we sat there for a good 2-30 minutes, seen several planes in the distance but nothing exciting, Alice said a car was coming so we jumped in the Van and took off down the road. What she thought was a plane was what looks like a helicopter on camera but it changed shape to something else. (I'll send that later) and we chased the object but ended up losing it.
We went back to the farm and sat there for some time again.. I kept my Camera running in Nightshot "infra-red" and just moved it around.. Then to the west I see a plane and decided to tape it for the heck of it. I placed the camera on the hood of the van, and off to the left "I didn't notice this at the time" a object comes in fast then descends, I go to tape the plane. End of story.
We came back to our place, I wanted to see the cigar shaped craft and the morphing chopper, after watching that we just watched to the end of the tape, and noticed real fast the object. In the clip I slowed it down many times and you can actually see it come from the south then drop.
Thank you to Mark for the footage and photos.

Sioux Lookout, Ontario A Fast Moving Object
Date: April 14, 2005
Time: 11:00 p.m.
Location of Sighting: Town beach.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 3
Shape of objects: Star sized, white objects.
Full Description of event/sighting: Standing on the town beach over looking the water. I noticed something moving, I looked and saw a blur-rish object moving very fast. At first I thought it was strange that a night animal/bird could fly that fast. I followed the object and realized it was 3 lights flying at the same velocity but not in a straight parallel formation and I lost them behind a street lamp. Too bright. Whatever I saw was real.
Thank you to the person for the interesting report.
Observing From Richmond, B.C. To The SE Towards Mt. Baker - Object
Date: April 17, 2005
Time: Morning sighting
Hi Brian, finally have something new to tell you. I have a friend (former neighbor) she is 75 yrs. of age and lives near No. 2 road in Richmond. She lives on the sixth floor and her apt. faces East. For years I have been telling her about different things I have been seeing and she has always seemed to take it with a grain of salt. She was a teacher in Fiji before moving here to Canada. Her late husband was an English University professor from India. So both were quite well educated.
She told me this morning she was sitting by her phone and glancing out her window when she noticed a large round dark object floating near the clouds. She first thought it looked like a Melon but when she looked through her binoculars told me it looked just like a large barrel just floating there. At first she thought it was stationary but as she watched realized it was slowly floating SE towards Mt. Baker. She said, "It was absolutely huge" and the binoculars brought it up really close. But other that it was dark and barrel shaped couldn't tell me much about it.
She said as she watched it, it just seemed to slowly disappear and she didn't know where it went. I asked her how far away it was when she saw it and she figured maybe over Surrey but she wasn't sure, just that it looked huge when viewed through the binoculars. I believe she has a pair about 7 X 30. They are those little ones you can put in a purse. She kept saying I've never seen anything like that in my life. I told her join the club now you have seen a UFO.
My wife just came home 9:30 PM. I mentioned it to her and she told me a blimp or something doing advertising had been floating around South Surrey, but when I questioned her further she stated it was White/Blue and she had seen it several days ago. Apparently advertising Bell Telephone or something, So I don't think it had any bearing on what my friend saw this morning.
Thank you to the person for the interesting report.
Towards Burnaby, B.C. Bell Blimp And Unknowns
Date: April 18, 2005
Time: Various
Hi Brian, was watching the news and they had their roof top camera pointing over towards Burnaby and they mentioned that you could see the Bell Blimp. So I rushed to my window and there it was. Just a little round blob to the naked eye, but quite obvious a Blimp when viewed with my binoculars. I phoned my friend in Richmond and asked her if that was what she had seen yesterday morning. She said it might be but what she had seen was Black and this was obviously White and has flashing lights on it. You may get a few calls re. this one as after dark they turned on interior lights then it just glowed like a big pale star floating along. I could plainly see the name BELL all down one side when viewing through my binoculars. Just for the heck of it I turned on KatKam and it is visible in the 20:10 Shot in the upper right hand corner. I checked the archives and that is the only shot it is in. But starting at 20:01 there is a small dark object just above the sun.
20:04 - Round White object just above and to the south of the Sun
20:05 - Lower still and to the south of the Sun
20:06 - Object now North of the Sun and over the Mountains
20:07 - Possibly two objects now
20:08 - Both moved to the South
20:09 - Both south of the Sun
20:10 - Blimp in this shot, one object gone, remaining one looks almost disk shaped
20:11 - Blimp gone, object over setting Sun
20:12 - Sky clear
20:13 - Appears to be object out quite aways, over the entrance to False Creek
20:15 - Appears to be three objects now, Two just over the mountains and one above them on the edge of the dark blue part of the sky.
20:16 - Two dark objects one slightly above the other almost directly above Sunset Beach near the edge of the dark blue sky. Maybe two more just to the south of the sunset.
20:30 - Appears to be round white object just over the mountains almost directly in line with the entrance to False Creek.
21:00 - Appears to be two white objects in the top left part of the picture.
Thank you to the person for the interesting report.
