Harlow, Essex UFO Sightings
Date: 1962
Hi Brian, I live in Harlow, Essex, about twenty minutes drive away from the recent sightings of the orange ball UFO seen in Loughton on the 10/09/05. I did not see the particular UFOs in question but have seen the same type on a previous occasion and may be able to throw some light on this particular type of craft/phenomena.
This is a bit complicated and I'll try to keep it short. These orange balls keep showing up in the UK and I saw one in 1962. I was nine years old. I had come out of my friend's house after watching a BBC series called "The Monsters", about reptile/dinosaur creatures taking over the world. The program is significant in that it was never repeated so I was able to track it down online and get an exact date of when this experience took place.
9:PM 29/11/62 I came out of my friend's house, which faces south, and I saw the moon in front of me and slightly to the right at about 60 degrees to the ground. I turned left along the footpath for a few yards and left again on the main street. This put me in a northerly direction. I only had a few hundred yards to go and I would be at home. I was not in a hurry but neither was I hanging about as it was very cold that time of the year and that time of night. As I crossed a small road I became aware of what looked like the moon to my right (east).
I knew I had just seen the full moon so it couldn't be that. I stopped and looked at this ball of yellowy, pearly orange. To give some idea of its size and proximity it must be understood that it was above two designated police houses (something that no longer exists in the UK), behind which is a wood full of mature oak and pine trees (even 43 years ago the oaks were quite tall) that go back about two hundred yards. The ball was about 45 to 50 degrees and, holding my fist up now, it was easily bigger than my fist by about 10%. This thing was close and I feel sure it knew I was there. It had two round dark patches, one each to the left and right lower half. I have often explained this by saying that if you looked at a model of a "Grey" alien's head and tipped it down, then the head would be the round shape of the craft and the top most part of the eyes would be represented by the dark patches.
The contrast between the patches and the ball colour was like that of the dark patches you see on burning coals and, indeed the ball had that kind of coal like light to it. The night was mainly clear with a light wind blowing a few wispy clouds across the sky. As a cloud passed over the ball I could still see the light glowing through the cloud. The cloud passed and I watched for some two minutes before the ball vanished as if it had been switched off like a light.
There was another episode that occurred that year which may or may not be significant. But before I get into that let me say that I grew up very interested in the UFO phenomenon and in 1986 started to take it very seriously after reading Above Top Secret by Timothy Good which, in turn, led me into the whole conspiracy thing and now I'm reasonably well informed on such matters. In 1998 I saw a program on the TV in which the late John Mack talked about abductees or "experiencers" as they like to be called. He pointed out that a very large proportion of those abducted had been sexually abused as children. One of these people's stories touched me for some reason and I wrote to the BBC with a letter of encouragement and some suggestions to help her. Then later that year I got a call and it was the person from the program, let's call her K. We chatted a lot on the phone, she in the USA and me in the UK. After about three weeks I had the good fortune to come into enough money to go to Florida and meet this young lady. She informed me that she had been abused by her step father and I then related to her the episode I mention at the head of this paragraph.
(The story is this: HBCC UFO Research note: I have removed part of the letter as it dealt with a sexual related topic, which may, or may not have had anything to do with the ongoing experiences. But I should note that reading the letter, there maybe some strange things going on. I pick up the story "below: omitting a paragraph of his letter.)
That occurred around Easter time 1962. In the summer of 1962 I spent a lot of time at the fair (when I wasn't otherwise engaged in trying to prove my manhood). One day I came home from the fair to find my father sitting front of the TV watching the cricket. He then said the most bizarre thing he ever said to me before or since. He said "I've just been to the
toilet and all this grey stuff came out". I was nine years old, I knew what the grey stuff was (courtesy of my cousin) and I was alone in the house with a man that could easily overpower me. I felt threatened, which frightened me as he had always been someone I could trust, at least on a personal level. My immediate reaction was to stay calm and make an excuse to get out. Where it came from I don't know but I said to him "oh really, I'd go and see the doctor if I were you", whilst simultaneously getting up and going to the kitchen. From there I was able to go out through another door.
I stayed out until I knew my mother would be in. I never told her about the incident and my father never mentioned it or anything like it again. But it was only in discussing this with K that I formed the opinion that maybe he may have been under the influence of someone or something else and that if he had succeeded in whatever it was he wanted to engage me in, then maybe later that year in November I would possibly have been an abductee. I have sometimes pondered this since I have put the episodes together. I don't remember losing any time and I am reasonably convinced that I was not an abduction victim, although K thought it was a possibility.
This is a strange series of events in my life and they appear even more weird when they are written down. Having come to the conclusion that I possibly escaped both abuse by my father and abduction by the orange ball, I did some research. I found a website that had a listing of sightings throughout the 60s and in the same week that I saw the ball there were other
sightings of the same thing.
The ones that interested me were two sightings either the same night or the night before my sighting in Harlow, one In Clacton on Sea in Essex and one In Watford, Hertfordshire. Take a look at the map and these three places are in a straight line. Then last year I moved to Princes Risborough, Bucks for six months and discovered that the previous year there had been a flap in Risborough after an orange ball was seen hanging over the town. Whilst there we had several strange sightings which were not aircraft but could not be confirmed as the ball.
I'm glad that I have finally reported this officially as it has played on my mind for some years now. I hope you find the information useful and I would be interested in knowing about any other similar sightings of this ball/balls that you know about in the UK. Email me if you require any other information about this sighting. I will be in touch about other sightings I have had.
Additional Information:
As I said in my last email, I don't remember having lost any time on that occasion. My parents were not particularly strict but there were rules and at nine years old, 9:00 PM and still only just leaving my friend's house, was a special treat and only lasted during the run of the serial I mentioned, The Monsters. If I had been any later than about 9:15 I'm sure there would have been at least some raised voices. But I don't remember anything like that happening. The funny thing is I don't remember much at all of the after events, except running home very fast after the ball "switched off".
My other sightings include a photograph I took in the south of France when I lived there in 1994. A silver sphere hovered about 10,000 to 20,000 feet over my house for at least four hours. I took no notice at first as I was convinced that it was a weather balloon but when it refused to go away I went indoors, got my camera and took a picture. It was very difficult to
stay looking at it so I would look for a while and then rest my neck for a while. It did nothing out of the ordinary except stay there. It was a typical southern French day, absolutely clear sky and full sunshine. I kept looking and quite frankly I got a bit bored with it. Then I looked after having had a rest for a few minutes and it was gone. If I can find the photo, I will send it to you.
I had two sightings on two consecutive Sundays of what I think was the same object on both occasions. 1974, Harlow about October around 5:00 PM, November time, I was driving my friend's Triumph sports car with him in the passenger seat. We saw what at first appeared to be a helicopter. It was a series of red and blue lights hovering in a perfectly clear night sky. They then started to travel at tremendous acceleration from west to east. After about three seconds they stopped abruptly and retraced their route back to the west, again at very high velocity and acceleration. Again they went back to the east and stopped to hover for a few seconds. At this point we were travelling north and the object became obscured by some houses. I stopped the car and went, by myself, into the housing estate, leaving my friend to keep an eye on the car. The object then started accelerate away from my position and travelled north, getting smaller and disappearing in about two
to three seconds. The following week, almost exactly the same time, we were doing the same journey and saw what appeared to be the same object, which again made the same maneuvers and disappeared in a northerly direction but
this time we saw the disappearance from the car, as we were in a slightly different position to the previous week.
As you said in your email there is always the possibility that I have had some contact that I am unaware of but that is speculation and at this point I don't feel that there is any hard evidence to support it. I will admit that I don't feel comfortable with that possibility as the prospect of ongoing abductions would make me a little paranoid to say the least. On the other hand I have often had the feeling that the orange ball may be monitoring me.
Thank you to the person for taking the time to share his experiences with me.
Ronkonkoma, L.I, New York Multi-Colored Lights (UFO)
Date: June 21, 1969
Time: 11:00 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Unknown
Full Description of event/sighting: A teenage friend (age 18) and myself (age 17) were lying in the grass on our backs in a school playground at about 11:00 pm at night. After a short conversation about the days events, my friend pointed to a cloudless sky and told me that he previously learned about the location and names of constellations in science class and began pointing out the little dipper, the Big Dipper and the names of certain other star formations for me. As we were scanning the horizon, my friend happened to notice 3 colored lights that appeared to be close by. It was dark of course, but I would estimate the lights to be about two miles away and about one mile high above the ground. We were with-in 5 miles of an airport, so the occasional appearance of multi-colored lights of small aircraft in the sky was not unusual, and we both agreed that this is probably what the lights were and continued to scan the sky's looking for other interesting constellations.
About 15 minutes later, my friend looked to the horizon again and brought to my attention that the multi-colored lights were still in the same place as they were before. We naturally thought that this was very odd, but decided that it was either another airplane traveling the same flight path or the same plane had circled and just happened to be in the same location that we were looking. We quickly went back to observing the stars.
Some time later, about 20 minutes, I happened to look in the direction of what we both dismissed as a airplane sighting, and again, in the very same place and of the exact orientation, I saw the same multi-colored lights. I quickly brought it to the attention of my friend and together we tried to come up with a rational explanation as to why and how an object could suspend itself in the air in the same exact place, for that length of time. I finally came to the conclusion that it must be a helicopter, but my friend reminded me that helicopters are extremely noisy and it was a very quiet night with no breezes. If the object was a helicopter, we would definitely hear the sound of the engine and rotor blades.
By now, we were both puzzled and intrigued, and our attention was now focused directly on the object for about 10 minutes. As we stared at the lights, I strained to make out some kind of outline or silhouette of the object, but I could not see any definite shape because the object seemed to absorb what little light was available and blend into the night sky. Just as we were discussing what this thing could be, it suddenly moved at tremendous speed to our left at a 45 degree angle upward, about 5 miles in the sky, paused for a brief second, and then accelerated straight upwards to the very outer stratosphere of the Earth, then stopped, hovered, appearing as a point of light for a second or two, and then suddenly propelled itself into deep space at an even faster speed then I had ever seen any man-made aircraft fly. The acceleration was so abrupt, and the angles of maneuver were so sharp, it is hard to believe that any living thing inside the craft could survive the G-Forces involved.
My friend and I looked at each other in astonishment, all I could say to him was "Woa", "What was that?". The next day, we told all are friends. Some of are friends believed us, but most did not. However, those that did not believe us, could not come up with an explanation either. I am in my 50's now, but I will never forget the experience, and the memory of it is still fresh in my mind like it happened yesterday. Whatever this object was, it moved so fast that it appeared surreal. At the age of 17 years old, I was a ("I don't believe it, unless I see it") kind of a young man, and I certainly did not believe in extraterrestrial spacecraft, but after this 1969 sighting, I soon changed my opinion.
Thank you to the eyewitness for their report.
North of Toronto Ontario, Hwy 48 Very Large Two Storied Oval Shaped UFOs
Date: 1974
Time: 10:00 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Very large two storied oval shaped.
Full Description of event/sighting: My father, mother, myself, my three small children driving north on Hwy 48 north of Toronto (Ontario) about 30 miles. Mom and I were sitting in the front with my father driving. Mom and I saw a massive object to our left in a field. It was much larger than a farm combine in the air about 50 feet off the ground. It had windows which were lit and it seemed to be revolving. It was frightening. I said to my mother "What is that?!!" She looked at me and said "Don't frighten the children". We never spoke of it again until a year ago. Never mentioned it to a soul for all those years. It was not my first sighting. I reported seeing with my husband about fifteen miles from the first sighting on County Rd 23, Brock Township, Durham Region a large white light at the side of the hwy. We stopped the car and immediately from this white came three objects, two flew horizontally, one vertically at a high rate of speed.
We carried on into town and when we returned the hydro was off in the subdivision. The weather good, but hydro not off in town. We proceeded into our house and there was one of the objects over the field behind our house. I had a reporter from the Beaverton Express come and do an article regarding this and shortly after I heard from a neighbor who told me she had been watching them for weeks, but did not want to tell anyone else. I can find the archival newspaper with some work. Around the same time a police officer we knew told us that scientists were performing experiments on the frozen lake near us, Lake Simcoe. He went out there and they informed him they were performing tests regarding a black hole into space. The time frame have been about 1974. The thing that really bothers my mother and myself is that we had never spoken of the incident on the highway with the cylinder type object until recently and my father never mentioned it. He did not question us as to our comments and he passed away before Mom and I spoke about it.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Black Rock Desert, Nevada An Orange Bright Light (UFO)
Date: September 2, 2005
Time: Just after dusk.
Number of witnesses: 4-5
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Single bright orange round light.
Full Description of event/sighting: While camping with friends near Gerlach, Nevada on Friday night, Sept 2, just as the stars were coming out, I noticed a very bright orange light above the low mountains approximately 10 miles away. It was round and amber-orange colored, and it moved very slowly, crossing high in the sky in roughly a southerly direction.
After watching it for a few seconds and not being able to determine if it was a plane headlight pointed in our direction, I pointed to the object and asked my friends, "What's that?"
They looked, and agreed that they didn't know what it was, either. We continued to watch the object as it moved at a slow to medium pace across the sky. It occasionally would turn a little to the left or right as it passed. It seemed to be taking its time going wherever it was headed, like it was meandering a little.
The object was definitely not a satellite, because we had seen satellites in the sky that weekend and knew their paths and appearances. It did not appear to be the headlight of a plane, because the intensity and shape of the light did not change as it passed overhead, and it had no discernable blinking lights.
If it was a helicopter, it was very quiet and had no other light than the single bright one, which remained bright in intensity well past the point that regular aircraft headlights would have disappeared. No actual shape could be seen, though. It was just a bright orange ball of light.
The sky was completely clear and there was no moon (new moon, in fact). It did not seem to make any sound. I lost sight of it when it passed the southern leg of the mountains behind me.
The color was also distinctive. Definitely orange.
Thank you to the eyewitness for their report.
Loughton, U.K. Three Orange Balls Of Light
Date: September 10, 2005
Time: Approx 8:45 p.m.
My girlfriend and I were leaving her house in Loughton, it is on a big hill so you have a clear view of London and the Canary Wharf.
I spotted three orange balls of light in the sky moving away from London. They flew in a triangle formation, I remember thinking that they flew very, very strange for aircraft, and they also appeared to pulsate. And, then all of a sudden they stopped dead in the sky. As they started moving again, I spotted another orange ball flying from the London area towards the three lights at a very high speed by the time it got near the other lights the triangle of three vanished behind cloud. Then after a short time the single light vanished from view. As that light vanished my girlfriend spotted three more lights flying very fast from the London region, they again flew in a triangle, then as they flew above our heads they stopped dead in the sky, and the light on the right of the triangle moved toward the light at the top of the triangle, then eclipsed it.They then moved back into a triangle once more and disappeared behind more cloud.
That is the story how my girlfriend and I remember it.
Thank you to the eyewitness for their report.
Toronto, Ontario Large Black Craft (UFO)
September 11, 2005
Time: 10:45 p.m.
On Sunday September 11, 2005 and probably at around 10:45 pm I saw a large black craft in the sky. I only noticed because I was looking at some stars. It would have been really difficult to see this thing otherwise. No noticeable noise or lights on the object. blended in with the sky very well.
I was at Bloor/Dufferin on the 14th floor of my east facing apartment. I saw this black object move in an eastwardly direction and then at around Yonge Street or so, it appeared to turn and head towards downtown Toronto, where I lost track of it.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Hainault, Essex U.K. Five Round Orange Orbs
Date: September 17, 2005
Time: 9.30 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 6
Number of objects: 5
Shape of objects: Round orange orbs.
Full Description of event/sighting: We, my partner and I, had just left my parents house, roundabout 9.30pm, just saying our goodbyes. My Dad helped us carry a box of paper to the car. We walked out of the front gate when something caught my eye above the house. It was two orange lights in the sky slowly moving in the direction of the moon NWW. Then they started to close in towards each other. They then stopped, my dad was there with me watching at the time. My dad then said "hang on" and ran back in the house and called for my mum to come outside.
I was standing, frozen watching the two orange lights, feeling nervous. As my mum came through the front gate, she looked up, and after about one minute she said "look". She pointed towards three orange bright lights travelling at the same speed as the previous two, in a triangular formation. They were flying towards the original two lights, staying in a triangular shape, then slowly changing formation. The three lights then separated, the top light and bottom lights drifted apart, and continued to travel. Then my brother, who had been fetched whilst the second set of lights were travelling, ran back into the house to grab the digital camera. He gave it to me and I began to take pictures. The first two lights then disappeared behind the clouds.
I managed to take one picture of the first two before they disappeared completely. Then a neighbor walked up the street, and spoke to my dad, he said that he had seen the first two from his window, and so came outside to get a better look. The three lights then stopped dead and we all just watched. The top and bottom lights (in the triangular formation) went out of vision as the clouds moved over them. We could still see the middle orange light, for approx. three minutes. Then my brother and myself saw it shoot off at amazing speed. We arrived back home in shock, and immediately checked the computer to see the pictures we had taken. They were amazing. When we saw them (with our eyes) they were just orange balls of light. On the pictures however, there is a more defined shape to them. We then decided to make a record of our sighting.
Thank you to the eyewitness for their report.
Constantine, Michigan White Sparkler Type Object
Date: September 19, 2005
Time: 9:00 p.m.
Hi, I wanted to report a sighting. Maybe you can tell me what I actually saw. I am from Constantine, Michigan. I was pulling out of the parking lot of the college I attend and saw a sparkler type light. The best way to describe the way it moved is like a child with a Fourth of July white light sparkler moving it in their hand while walking around. That is how the light moved Monday night (9-19-05, 9:00 pm). When I first saw the light I thought, "That is not an airplane light." The light was not moving straight and slow or straight and fast or hovering, it was jagged, jerking movement, at a medium pace speed. It went over the college parking lot and headed toward the town. A few times it looked as though the light had stopped and then comeback like it was losing power. I followed it to the end of the college drive and turned the opposite way, thinking no one will believe me anyway if I tell them about it. I wondered if it was a meteorological device or some sort of radio-controlled camera. I could not justify those descriptions because the light was so bright and it literally was a giant sparkler.
Additional Information:
Q. - Can you please tell me how long the sighting lasted for ? I am wondering how fast it traveled across the sky.
A. - What I saw traveled approx 10 mph it was not very fast. It did not travel a straight line it was more like a little kid waving a sparkler and running with it.
Q. - Also, would you have a "rough" idea how high it may have been, like where a jet aircraft would fly, or maybe a small plane or helicopter?
A. - It was approximately 15 - 20 ft high, not as high as a jet. There was no sound either so I know it wasn't a helicopter.
Q. - Can you tell me what the weather conditions were that evening?
A. - It was partly cloudy; we had had rain almost all day. But it wasn't raining at the time. It was dark about 9:00 p.m.
Q. - In what part of the sky was the UFO located? North, South, East, West? On the horizon or straight overhead or somewhere in between? (Direction of travel from and to?)
A. - When I first saw it, it was coming from the, south it traveled north to where I was in the parking lot and then moved east toward the town. But it wasn't a straight line type movement
Q. - Describe the appearance of the UFO: shape, size, distance from your location, sound if any?
A. - There was no sound and no shape all could see were sparks it was like a giant white sparkler. From the ground it looked to be about 2 ft in diameter but it's hard to tell.
Q. - Describe the area in which you made the sighting. Is it near an airport? An Air Force Base? A military or research installation of any kind?
A. - I was in the parking lot of a community college. They do not have an aviation division, I know they have a course on astronomy but I can not figure out what an object like that would have to do with astronomy. The only little airport there is about 30 miles a way to the north of town. I am in the military, I am pretty sure I can differentiate a little Cessna to an F16 to Huey. Trust me it was neither of those. I found this to be very bizarre especially since I don't believe in UFO's or little space creatures. In all my life I have never heard of or witnessed such a thing.
Q. - If there is anything else you could add, please do as it may be very important.
A. - The county fair was taking place that night. I had wondered if what I saw had anything to do with the fair. I never saw any flyers for something like that though. The object did lose its sparkle a few times like the light dimmed but it came back. I turned to head south to home and when I looked back the object was gone.
Thank you to the eyewitness for their report.
Vernon, British Columbia An Orange-Pink Sphere
Date: September 19, 2005
Time: 11:00 p.m.
Night sky, cloudy, breezy
Hi Brian, Last night I saw two "shooting star's" enter the northwest sky. One star was bright white with a silver trail. It is the one I saw about an hour later that I want to report. The clouds were low to midrange last night and the full moon was behind me enhancing the clouds in the west sky.
Under the low western cloud cover, heading into the west, I saw appear with the trail already behind a orange-pink sphere fully intact with an aura of yellow. This was surrounded with the white light leading to the trail. There
was no smoke trail.
The distance from me was with in twenty kilometers, the color of the sphere was like Venus is when it sets, glowing pinks and oranges, and it's size was just a little bigger than Venus has been in the night sky. It's trail was yellow and white.
The sphere was whole and intact at the front.
It then disappeared. It's angle of descent was about twenty degrees above the mountains and it was moving toward the ground. It's direction was indirectly toward Kamloops. I have been able to coincide some sightings of shooting stars to the orbs that fly over so I stayed outside last night to watch if any orbs appeared but there was nothing more after the colorful shooting star.
Thank you to the eyewitness for their report.
Gobernador Knob, New Mexico Semi-Transparent Triangular Shape (UFO)
Date: September 20, 2005
Time: Early evening
Dear Brian;
I and 12 other people saw something very similar to what you describe, "like Venus when it sets only bigger," near Gobernador Knob in northern New Mexico on Tuesday night, September 20, just after sunset.
It hovered for a bit, came closer, spun, hovered again for about 40 minutes and then receded quickly turning red-orange as it went.When it was close and not spinning, it appeared as a semi-transparent triangular shape with a rounded top-something like a brachiopod. We took pictures of it with our digital cameras. There isn't much to see other than a spot of light.
I am not sure if this corresponds with what you saw.
Thank you to the eyewitness for their report.
Vancouver, B.C. (Setting Behind Seymour Mountain) Multi Colored Star?
Date: September 23, 2005
Time: Approx: 4:00 a.m.
Woke up this morning about 4:00 a.m. and noticed the sky was really clear, so decided to set the camera up and leave it running on time lapse. I aimed it to catch that multi coloured star? that moves north over Vancouver and then sets behind Seymour Mountain. It set just as the sky was starting to get a little light but I noticed just before it disappeared that it appeared to come to a halt four times, just for a minute or two each time, at normal speed I probably would not have even noticed but on time lapse it was quite noticeable.
Thank you to the eyewitness for their report.
North Vancouver, British Columbia Two Globes (UFO)
Date: September 23, 2005
Time: 7:43 a.m.
07:43 ++ Sept. 23 + Was playing the tape back, just to see if anything else showed up. Camera was aimed at the sky between Seymour and Grouse Mtn. in North Vancouver. With the tops of the mtns. showing at the bottom of the screen. Several times I saw blips and upon checking found them to be either birds or small planes. At 7:43 I saw a bright flash and assumed it was probably a Jet headed your way (North) I backed up the tape to check and when I zoomed in saw
what appeared to be two globes, the lead one appeared to be slightly oblong and attached to the rear one by a narrow black strip, like a belt. Sticking out from the near the belt area were what looked sort of like Mickey Mouse ears The upper two appeared to be quite solid, while there appeared to be two more sticking out from each side of the bottom.
I only put the closer one in the diagram as they seemed to be fading in and out ever other frame. The globe on the rear appeared to be a little bigger in diameter and appeared to be highly reflective like a mirror while the more oblong one appeared to be more of a whitish material. Camera was recording two seconds every thirty seconds. I half expected to see it again before it flew out of my field of view but never saw it again. Speed and altitude were similar to the Jet traffic which heads in that direction several times a day.

UFO Circling The Military Base At CFB Comox, Vancouver Island, B.C.
HBCC UFO Research Note: This is a second sighting over the Comox military base. Also there has been a large number of reports coming in from Vancouver Island and it appears that the Comox base is busier than normal according to witnesses. If anyone else is seeing unusual objects for Vancouver Island would they please contact me at: <>
Date: September 25, 2005
Time: 12:15 p.m.
Message: I just saw another UFO circling the military base at CFB Comox. I saw it at 12:15 pm and the skies are clear, except for one chemtrail nearby. I got some pretty good pictures and this time it is unmistakably a saucer. I got a half dozen images of in one of them there is a mirrored shadow object nearby.
Additional Information (Telephone interview)
The witness said in the photos you can see possibly two objects, the white saucer shaped craft, with another off to the left which appears darker in color and seemed to be shadowing the other. The skies are clear except for a contrail/chemtrail which was seen by the witness. The trail in the sky was not close to the object according to the witness. As the person watched, she heard know sound what so ever and the object did make a direction change, although it did this slowly.
She states that whatever this was, wasn't moving as fast as a normal aircraft should be traveling, it was moving much slower. The sun was shinning on the object according to what the witness saw.
Thank you to the witness for their report and photos. Photos © 2005 A.L.

Crosstown/Coal Harbour Vancouver B.C. Cylindrical/Rod UFOs
Date: September 25, 2005
Time: 3:55 - 4:00 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 2
Shape of objects: Cylindrical/rod
Full Description of event/sighting: While out on a smoke break at work today, I was looking up at the sky at all of the contrail/chemtrails over coal harbour and the westend of Vancouver.
I was on a fire escape on the 7th floor of the Dominion Building in Crosstown. Facing Northwest looking at Coal Harbour and the North Shore mountains.
High in the sky but really not more than a few hundred feet higher than me, I noticed a red and a white object floating over Coal Harbour. At first I thought it must be a couple of helium filled balloons that got away from someone. As the objects continued their slow almost floating movements I noticed that the white object, which appeared to be below the red one at first, was moving up almost parallel to the red object. Then the red object would pull ahead and the white one would move to a 45 degree angle to the red one. Then the white object moved parallel and ahead of the red one. They seemed separated by a very short distance during this time, maybe about 10 feet. It almost seemed as if some sort of a tether was visible which was why I thought they were balloons at first glance.
They way they moved was not like any helium balloons I have ever witnessed in the sky. Their movements were too linear and almost jerking when they would move ahead of one another. And they floated forward in a straight line never continuing to a higher elevation they way helium balloons keep rising.
By this time they were directly across from my view point. I could see that they were not round like balloons but cylindrical in shape. From the distance I was at they appeared to be about an inch across in the sky.
I remembered that we have a digital camera in the office so I ran inside and got it - this took all of 1 minute tops. The objects were no longer visible so I figured they must have gone around the corner of the building and I could no longer see them.
So I ran to the elevator and went down to street level looking up at where they seemed they should have been in the sky. I was taking into consideration how slowly they had been moving while I had watched - which was for about 5 minutes. In that time they only traveled about 100 feet maximum in the sky.
They were gone...completely. I stood at the corner of Cambie and West Hastings Street which has a fairly unobstructed view of Coal Harbour skies and the North Shore mountains. They had disappeared. This is unfortunate as I really wanted to get a photo. It wouldn't have taken me more than a couple of minutes to get to the corner. Hopefully someone else noticed these objects in the Vancouver skies today and did get picture.
Thank you to the eyewitness for their report.
Altamonte Springs, Florida An Orange/Red Ball Came To A Stop
Date: September 26, 2005
Time: Approx: 1:30 a.m.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Oblong orange ball.
Full Description of event/sighting: I was just looking at the sky, like I always do, it was a beautiful evening. I saw orange / red ball of light moving southeast. I ran inside to get my friend to show her and the huge glowing object stopped, and went in the opposite direction back into the sky. We watched it until it disappeared. It was huge. It could not have been a satellite or space junk because it stopped and then went backwards in the same path it came from. Ironically, another ball of light was spotted on September 21. The news argued that it was a falling satellite. What is going on?
Thank you to the witness for the report.
Update: Ongoing Problems For Possible Abductee In Banora Point, Australia
Date: Received: September 18, 2005
Hey Brian.
Just letting you know my situation in Banora Point.
I have been having some more concerns with the left nostril of my nose. For some strange reason, I am finding more and more blood in my left nostril each morning, although, my nose has never bled at during the day, or when I am sleeping. There is no blood on my pillow or bed sheets.
Also, to add more concern to the issue, I am now experiencing a constant aching pain deep in the inside of my nose. The pain is in the left nostril only, and has become so excruciating at times; I am considering even to be hospitalized. I am not sure if there may be a growth of some kind, but I will be visiting the doctors sometime this week to find what is causing the
Could it be them that are causing this? I am considering perhaps running my video camera on motion detector mode all night, just in case they do visit, like they must have before.
I am getting less sleep at night. Work adds to the problem. I have told my mum and she thinks it might not be anything too serious. Whatever it is, I hope it goes away soon.
Thank you to the fellow for his update.

HBCC UFO Research - The Vike Report (audio clip collection on CD)
The Audio Reports are the actual eye witness accounts of their sightings as told to me. I've included 54 reports on the CD which should keep you busy for sometime. The reports are in an mp3 format and these reports come from Canada, United States and other parts of the world. What I found is that we read a text report, and find many of the experiences interesting, it is when hearing the event in the eyewitness words, you hear emotions come out that can't be captured in a text report. Details for purchasing The Vike Report (audio clip collection) can be found at:
The Art Of Catharine Donalda (Donna) McLaren
Donna is an artist who, over her lifetime, has expressed herself in a variety of media. From an early age this included experiments with mud and sand, carving jewellery from wood, drawing and painting. Upon emerging from the scribbling stage, Donna's first sketch (drawn on a discarded Lux soap wrapper) was a horse - which although it looked more like a sawhorse, sent her off on years of drawing animals, mainly horses.
Her early years in the woods, meadows and waters surrounding her home outside of what is now known as Thunder Bay, Ontario, on the tip of Lake Superior, brought Donna an intense connection with nature, which followed her through drawing, painting and wood carving to clay, which became her mode of expression for 26 years.
Donna graduated from the University of Guelph in Ontario with a Bachelor of Household Science, and from Sheridan College also in Ontario, with a major in Ceramics. As a Capilano College Pottery instructor In North Vancouver, British Columbia during the 70's, 80's and into the early 90's, Donna became well-known in her field, both through juried exhibitions and galleries across the country. Her works in pottery are in private collections world-wide.
A physical injury brought on by years of heavy physical demands in her field of clay was a turning point in Donna's art focus. Today she continues to express her whimsicality and interest in ancient mystical symbols through painting. Completed prints are further embellished with brush pens and metallics.
Donna's work is permeated with deeper meaning, and as the viewer peruses her work they are allowed opportunity to interpret those meanings on many levels. Whimsy and humour are predominant as they are well known routes to healing, and this was also a strong component in Donna's pottery expressions. Her underlying message, shared through her "creatures" is to be playful, loving and joyous with one another.
She sees that all Humanity is interconnected, and that through living together in harmony we can share this planet in the wonderment that is expressed through her artistic creations. Donna's series of "We Are All In This Together" showcases this belief superbly and is continually expanding. The series now includes: Noah's Ark, the 2222 Farm Train, Circus Train, Whale and Dolphins, the Spaceship, Loch Ness Nessy, the Okanagan Ogopogo, Salmon Arm's Super Salmon Cruises, Superior Trout's Voyageur Tours, and Dove's Hot Air Balloon Tours. Donna's wish is that you enjoy the spontaneity and find inner meaning in these works.
The first show of Donna's paintings was held in Ketchum, SunValley Idaho, in December and January of 2002-2003. Her work has since been shown in a number of galleries and shops throughout British Columbia and Ontario.
