Unknown Light Flying Over Nanaimo Vancouver Island British Columbia

Date:  June 2012
Time:  Evening.
I saw something very similar to this. I can't be sure for the exact date, but it was about a month ago.
I was sitting down by the waterfront in Nanaimo, and my friend and I saw this object which looked as if it was hovering over top of the Mill (Harmac), we watched it for some time, and then it moved from the Mill across the waterfront, heading North in direction. (my friend tried to get a video of it, but it was night time, and you can barely see it.)
We decided that it was a helicopter, but there was no sound coming from the flying object.
I decided to let it go, but I knew in the back of my mind that there was something strange about it.
Sorry it took me so long for my curiosity to peak on the subject, honestly I wasn't expecting anything to come up when I searched on Google.
I would like to know if anyone else has contacted you about the sighting in Nanaimo. Thanks.
If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential.

  1. I live in the south end of Nanaimo, close to Haliburton. I got a call from my boyfriend at 9:45 to say he had just seen a UFO by Country Club. It was as bright as a streetlight. So I went outside of my house and looked up and saw 1 light that was much farther away than what he saw zig zaging back and forth towards the ocean. It faded and disapeared. A few seconds later I saw another light that looked exactly the same as the first zig zag towards port place mall and disapear.

  2. was at Pipers Lagoon park with my daughter and saw a bright light hovering over Gabriola Island. we watched it for a few minutes, I told her it probably was a search and rescue helicopter with it's search light on, it was that bright. a few seconds after I said that it moved up and disappeared, within 2 seconds the same light appeared off the coast of the mainland. I don't think it was a rescue helicopter any more, nothing moves that fast, it was around 8:30 at night, there weren't any stars in the sky at that time, it's too late for sea planes, at we don't get a lot of airplane traffic.

  3. Holy shit! I was at pipers lagoon park walking with my mother and her dog, and saw two very bright lights above what I presume is either the mill, gabriola island, or newcastle island (I honestly don't know) but it was near the coastal edge of that landmass. Anyway, there was one flying slightly above the other, glowing a bright light the same colour as a streetlamp, and it was faint at first. The one on the top proceeded to glow extremely bright, vanished, and reappeared half-way across the georgia straight in little under a second of it disappearing (I couldn't tell if it flew very fast or teleported there, it's a far-out assumption but even so). The other slowly preceded to glow, as if it was flying our direction. it became very very very bright, almost difficult to look at, and then slowly faded away and vanished. We were at first assuming they were helicopters, but that theory just didn't make any sense, and for search and rescue i'm sure we would have seen boats going about as well. It was pretty strange! :)
