Report Six - Remarkable UFO Wave Continues Over British Columbia Canada (UFO Investigator Brian Vike)

Investigator Brian Vike’s Note: A lot of these British Columbia sighting reports have been written up by me, the reason for this is I ran a Canada wide Toll Free UFO Hotline.

Let me tell you, was it crazy, it was so busy it was nuts. Just for the very last report at the bottom of this batch of sightings, the phone almost never stopped ringing throughout the day and evening. I believe I spoke to well over 200 witnesses for this sighting - British Columbia UFOs, Beam Of Light, Frightened Residents and have almost all of the witnesses information on audio tapes here at home.

Metallic UFO The Size Of A Greyhound Bus Paced Vehicle Outside Houston, British Columbia.

Date:  March 3, 2003
Time:  7:55 p.m.

Tonight on Friday, March 7, 2003 at approximately 8:30 p.m. I received a telephone call from two local Houston, British Columbia residents who wanted to report something very strange they had saw on March 3, 2003 at approximately 7:55 a.m. The two witnesses were at the same location here in town when they made the call to me here at home.

The reason why the witnesses decided to tell their story was due to the newspaper articles which ran on the UFO Survey, and myself in our local newspaper this past Wednesday.

They also told me they both spent some time trying to make up their minds if they should actually call me over what they saw.

The first thing one of the fellows said to me was, "my buddy and I saw something very weird the other day, and are still questioning ourselves over what we saw".

He went on to say there was himself and his friend in his truck travelling along highway #16 just east from Houston, British Columbia. Since it is getting lighter earlier these days, the fellows witnessed this object in the daylight.

Just before they got to Perow, there is a large farmer's field which runs for a long way, and also runs alongside the highway with a buffer of trees between the field and the highway. His friend was the passenger in the truck and first noticed a large object paralleling them along the highway.

 The driver looked at the speed they were travelling and said he was doing approximately 90 kilometers, both had a very close up look at it. (keep in mind there were the trees in between the truck and object which did hinder the view at times). Also the field drops down somewhat below the highway, so the forestry workers did not get a good look at the bottom of this craft.

They both described the object as looking like an "Air Stream Trailer", and the size was close to a Greyhound Bus. It was metallic in color, and no other features could be seen on it. No lights, windows, nothing !

The object stayed straight across from their truck as they drove along, as I mentioned above. It paced their vehicle !! The passenger had rolled down the window to see if he was able to hear any sound coming from this object, but none was heard, it was silent. After approximately 3/4 of a kilometer the craft turned slowly away from the highway, wobbled slightly, sped up, wobbled once again and then shot off out of sight very quickly.

Investigator Brian Vike's Note: Since the object was so low, and on the other side of the standing trees, I asked if they had observed any movement in the trees. Such as any disturbance which would have moved the trees in anyway. None was noticed.

Something else I should add. When the witnesses mentioned that it wobbled, one of the fellows said it was like looking through a heat wave, which gave it a look as if it was slightly wobbling. Also both of the men made comments to one another, saying it was so strange and not a normal aircraft as it had no wings on its body.

He also mentioned due to the type of work he is involved with he had made many trips on different aircraft, and what he and his friend saw was "no" aircraft they know of.

I am also going out tomorrow to grab some pictures of the area where the sighting took place. I hope to have some drawings and more information after I sit down and chat with the two witnesses over the weekend. There is more to this story to come.

                              Above Image: This is close to what the object looked like.

Bright Object Disappears Over Mount Hays Prince Rupert, British Columbia.

Date:  March 7, 2003
Time:  7:30 p.m.

"On Friday March 7, 2003 at 7:30 p.m. me and my daughter were outside ready to leave in the truck when we both looked up and saw this bright white light shoot over towards Mount Hays.

It was traveling southeast for two to three seconds, then it just blinks out when it was over Mount Hays, it was the brightest white light that we have ever seen.

My daughter told me that she had seen almost the same thing just two weeks ago while with her friend at 4:30 a.m., the object they saw wasn't as bright as this one was, it was traveling east, and it too blinked out before it went over Mount Hays."

Fast Moving Yellow/Golden Ball Of Light Flew Over Terrace, British Columbia.

Date:  March 7, 2003
Time:  10:00 p.m.

"A yellow/golden ball flew close to the ground over my trailer from the south to the north.

It was very fast and very low (15-20 meters) and I could not get my friends attention in time.

Size is hard to tell but most likely " Basketball"-size."

Bright Flash Of Light And UFO Changed Directions Over Williston Lake McKenzie, British Columbia.

March 19, 2003
Time:  4:15 a.m.

A logging truck operator was coming back from picking up a load of logs, near the south end of Williston Lake, when he saw a bright flash of white light directly in front of him at a fairly high altitude.

The light appeared to be heading in a northwesterly direction. He thought that the object was probably a meteor as he sees a number of them while working in so many darkened hours.

What the witness found strange about the sighting, was before the light disappeared it changed direction slightly. After this change in its flight path, he said it was gone. Just vanished.

The sighting lasted no more than 3 to 4 seconds. At arm's length he said the light may have been the size of a pea. No sound was heard coming from the light, but this would be no surprise anyway due to him being in the cab of his truck, and they can be rather noisy.

Fast Moving UFO Slowed Down Seen Over Terrace, British Columbia.

Date:  March 23, 2003
Time:  7:40 p.m.

"It went immediately 2 times very bright before speeding up again and continuing towards the northwest. The light was greyish-white in color, round and extremely bright.

The object moved from the southwest Kitimat, British Columbia to northeast. It also moved very quickly.

Before losing track of the object, it has slowed significantly down over Thornhill. There were two witnesses to this sighting."

Huge Triangular UFO Flying In The Sky Over Coquitlam, British Columbia.

Date:  March 25, 2014
Time:  8:55 p.m.

The witness had stepped outside to have a cigarette when he noticed this "thing" out of the corner of his eye. Through a clearing in the clouds he saw a very large, black, triangular-shaped object with a point of light on each of the object's tips. It was flying roughly east to west; very fast and totally silent.

The witness believes that the object was just higher in elevation than the surrounding clouds. Checking with the weather channel, he was told that the cloud ceiling was about 11,000 feet.

The witness lives in Coquitlam near Burnaby Mountain and believes that the object could have been directly above the 401 Freeway. It was in view for about 3 to 4 seconds.

The witness was shocked at the shape and apparent size of the object. He estimates that one could have placed three jumbo jets into the object easily. The gentleman's parting words to me were: "It freaked me right out !"

If you know anything about this case, would you please contact me, Brian Vike at sighting@telus.net


UFO Dropped From The Sky And Vanished Seen From Houston, British Columbia.

Date:  April 11, 2003
Time:  8:00 p.m.

A fellow stopped me while I was heading out the door of our local grocery store here in Houston, British Columbia today (April 14, 2003). He said to me that he had his first UFO sighting the other night.

There were 4 witnesses just west of Houston in an area called the Houston Estates. There are a number of homes in the area. One of the witnesses saw something funny and told everyone else to look.

Looking south towards the Morice River, from the Houston Estates they noticed the strangest set of lights. It was very low in altitude, and sitting above the Morice Valley Road.

I was told the only thing which could be seen on it were the three colored lights. The witness said it was as if the object was rotating, as the lights kept changing position.

The color of the lights were, yellow, blue and red. The strange thing about this sighting is that I was told that the object was seen for approximately 10 minutes.

The object dropped a bit and continued doing this until in was seen to have dropped a good distance in height. He told me whatever it was moved extremely fast, then would come to a complete stop.

Then once again it was continuing to move at a high rate of speed making the same maneuvers over and over again. The object would have been approximately 2 miles away from the peoples location.

Binoculars were brought out so they could get a better look at it, I was told all that could be seen was the lights, no shape or body to the object. The object/lights vanished instantly after the 10 minutes of viewing.

Two Bright Silver/White Colored Object Flew Over Terrace, British Columbia.

Date:  April 11, 2003
Time:  10:30 p.m.

A man and a woman were burning off the grass from around their garden when she looked up and saw two very bright silvery-white lights.

One of the lights was heading to the northeast, towards Kitwanga, British Columbia and the other in the opposite direction.

The "lights" were at a very high level and lasted for only a second or two. She called her boyfriend to look up, but everything happened so quickly he missed seeing the lights.

If you know anything about this case, would you please contact me, Brian Vike at sighting@telus.net


Multi Coloured UFO Seen 70 Kilometers South Of Houston, British Columbia.

Date:  Mid April 2003
Time:  3:15 a.m.

A man was about 70 kilometers south of Houston, on his way to work at the Huckleberry Mine, when he saw a multi-coloured object stationary in the sky.

At first he thought it was a bright, twinkling star but then he noticed that it was overcast and no other stars were visible.

He watched the light for about five minutes before it "dropped straight down" behind the mountain. He did not hear any sound.

If you know anything about this case, would you please contact me, Brian Vike at sighting@telus.net


Dark C Shaped UFO Observed Over Houston, British Columbia.

Date:  April 20/24, 2003
Time:  10:30 p.m.

A woman was just about to close the bedroom curtains getting ready to retire for the evening, when she saw a tight cluster of lights just sitting stationary, low in the sky.

She called her husband over and he too was surprised at what he saw. Grabbing binoculars, they took turns viewing the lights.

They believe that the lights were attached to a dark object shaped like the letter “C”. They believed that the object was low to the ground and fairly close to their farm, possibly hovering over Highway #16.

Although they opened the window to check, they could not hear any sound. They watched the stationary object for 20 to 30 minutes before closing the curtains and going to bed.

                             Above Image: This is close to what the object looked like.

Shortly afterward, the wife did get up and look out the window, but the lights were gone.

Massive UFO Blocks Out The Stars Over Houston, British Columbia.

Date:  April 21, 2003
Time:  11:45 p.m.

The witness was walking home from his brother’s place, along Highway #16. He was gazing up at the stars in the clear night sky when he noticed a large part of the sky in which no stars were visible, only the outline of something huge and dark in colour.

This dark object was flying very low over top the tree line, heading east. As he watched it, several rows of lights suddenly came on!

This frightened him and he ran the short distance to his home and yelled for his mother to come out and view the craft.

Both of them watched the “massive” object slowly fly by. The rows of lights then suddenly went off again. Due to the number of trees around, they soon lost sight of it altogether.

Their total viewing time together was only 10 to 12 seconds. No sound was heard. See image below:

UFO Double The Size Of The Moon Seen Over Terrace, British Columbia.

Date:  May 9, 2003
Time:  10:35 p.m.

A man was walking on his property when he viewed a small, out-of-place object in the cloudless northeastern sky. As the witness watched the light, it began to grow in size, and grew in brightness by the second.

Within 5 to 6 seconds the light went from being the approximate size and brightness of a star to about double the size of the moon. The light, or object, was traveling at a very high altitude heading toward the southwest and at this point straight over top of him, still at a high altitude.

After the light/object had disappeared from the fellow’s sight, another strange light showed up some 5 minutes later.

If you know anything about this case, would you please contact me, Brian Vike at sighting@telus.net


Dark UFO Ringed By Lights Over Terrace, British Columbia.

Date:  May 13, 2003
Time:  11:45 p.m.

Three witnesses on Ferry Island watched a number of funny coloured lights (blue/red/yellow/white) traveling in their direction from the north.

They could see that the white lights were pulsating very brightly, but the coloured lights were remaining constant. As the object drew closer to their location it seemed as if the lights, in a ring, surrounded a dark solid object which was in the center.

From the glow off the lights they noted the dark object in the center was completely round in shape, with this ring of colored lights running around it.

The object moved very quickly across the sky heading south. The length of the sighting lasted about 10 seconds before they lost sight of it due to the trees.

It traveled in a straight line and up rather high in the sky, but low enough to catch a good look at it. No sound was heard coming from it and no tail was observed.

Bright Light Observed From Houston, British Columbia.

Date:  May 31, 2003
Time:  11:00 p.m.

Two witnesses watched a steady bright white light fly rather quickly over the edge of the town of Houston, British Columbia at a low altitude (about 6 thousand feet - one of the witnesses is a pilot himself).

The light was heading in an easterly direction. There was no tail seen trailing the object. They also added that the light would have been twice as bright as the planet Venus. The sighting lasted for about 5 to 6 seconds.

Orange Ball Spotted Over Knox Mountain Kelowna British Columbia.

Date:  June 2, 2003
Time:  12:30 a.m.

Hello, my name is (name removed). I just read the news paper article about the ball of fire that was seen heading into the lake a few Mondays ago, and happened to read the part about the 2 Okanagan women who saw those floating orange balls 4 years ago.

I was reminded of that event from a TV show I was watching called Canada's Creepiest on Halloween, 2006. They said that 2 women had seen 3 orange balls in the sky that were dancing, and later on, saw an orange ball shoot towards their car.

I was on Knox Mountain camping with a girl friend of mine that same night, and we saw it too. We didn't see the 3 orange balls, but we saw the one that was stationary and then shot off.

We had noticed it at around 12:30 a.m. and we were talking about it to each other for about 7 minutes trying to figure out what it was. It was lower than the horizon (if my memory serves me) and we had no clue what it could have been.

So there we are, up on Knox looking at this thing that's hovering over towards the Crawford area, hasn't moved an inch since we spotted it, then all of a sudden bolts to the left and disappears behind the Mt. (we ran back home)

I like to believe in un-identified flying objects, but my friend is very skeptical. That night, I think, has changed her perspective, and has made it crystal clear for me that there is something out there.

I haven't told many people about this out of fear of looking crazy. But when I saw that TV special, then read the article in the paper, I had to tell someone, and now I think I'm telling the right person.

I'm not sure if this helps with anything or is relevant, but I wanted to let someone know who deals with these types of experiences.

Thank you for your time, Brian. If there's anything I can do to help out with figuring out what happened over the lake a few weeks back, please let me know.


Additional Information:

Hi Brian, I know the date was in early June 2003 because I was graduating that year. We saw the orange ball about 2 weeks before grad, because my friend and I remember, got bit by a mosquito and her eye was swollen still for grad.

Our grad was in the middle of June and we still had exams to go back too. I'd place the incident around June 2nd, 2003. Hope this helps. Is there much UFO activity in the Okanagan? I never get to hear about it if there is.

I find this topic fascinating and would be very interested on learning more about it. Thanks for getting back so quick.

If you know anything about this case, would you please contact me, Brian Vike at sighting@telus.net


Huge Boomerang UFO Observed Flying Over Houston, British Columbia.

Date:  June 5, 2003
Time:  1:30 a.m.

A few minutes drive west of Houston, five witnesses watched a huge object move silently and low over the tree line.

Just before 1:30 a.m. the witness woke up as she heard her youngest child get up. As the Mom made her way through their home, she walked by one of the windows and saw a very bright light/object.

As she stared at it, she noticed that it was moving very slowly and was of an enormous size. She screamed for her husband to get out of bed, which he did.

Because of all the commotion the parents were making, their other two children got up to see what was going on. One of the youngster said,

"What is that big flashlight doing in the sky"? The folks who were watching the object said, there had to have been others who saw it, due to its size, brightness and rate of speed.

Also they noted they could hear freight liners traveling on the highway at the time of their sighting.

The witnesses described the object as being boomerang in shape with a massive white/yellow glow around it.

There were large bright light white lights in the center of the object. They heard not a sound from it, also the dogs took no notice of it. The sighting lasted about 3 minutes and disappeared behind the tree line and towards the southwest.

Egg Shaped UFO Hovering Over The Skeena River Terrace, British Columbia.

Date:  June 24, 2003
Time:  10:20 a.m.

A man and his wife were just leaving Terrace on their way to Prince Rupert. They were travelling west on Highway #16, along the Skeena River, when the woman yelled for her husband to look up towards the south.

He pulled the vehicle off to the side of the road and they both watched an egg-shaped object hovering over the south side of the river.

It appeared to be about the size of a pickup truck, about 1000 feet off the ground and and shiny silver in colour, with no visible seams.

One witness commented that, "It looked like an egg!". They watched it for 10 to 15 seconds before it sped off to the south at an incredible rate of speed. They did not hear any sound from it.

If you know anything about this case, would you please contact me, Brian Vike at sighting@telus.net


Round Silver UFO Spotted Over Terrace, British Columbia.

Date:  July 17, 2003
Time:  8:00 p.m.

In a clear evening sky (daylight), the witness saw a silver, round-shaped object traveling at an extremely high rate of speed coming from the west heading east.

The sighting took about 4 seconds before it disappeared from his line of sight.

He said that it happened so fast he could not get a proper look at it, but because of the speed at which it was travelling, that it was no "darn" aircraft we have. No sound was heard.

If you know anything about this case, would you please contact me, Brian Vike at sighting@telus.net


Two Bright Orange UFOs Traveling Over Trail, British Columbia.

Date:  July 17, 2003
Time:  10:55 p.m.

Two witnesses watched as two low flying objects passed over top the Trail Smelter. The men reported that the objects slowed at one point, (or looked like they had) then sped back up heading in a southerly direction.

The described the objects as being very bright orange in color, with a halo, or haze around each of them.

The objects made no sound as they flew by. Both men believed the objects were about the size of a compact car. This sighting lasted for about 4 seconds.

If you know anything about this case, would you please contact me, Brian Vike at sighting@telus.net


Large Glowing Oblong Shaped UFO In The Sky Above Terrace, British Columbia.

Date:  July 24, 2003
Time:  11:45 p.m.

A man and his wife were watching the traffic travelling along Highway #16 (from the vantage point of their hillside home) when they noticed a large glowing oblong-shaped object moving slowly alongside the highway, heading north.

At first they thought that it may have been an aircraft, as it appeared to "pace" some of the vehicles on the road, but realized that it was far too low for an aircraft to be flying at night.

Eventually the object made a sudden move, or "jerked" across the highway to the opposite side and came to a stop. As they watched it sitting stationary it seemed to gain in elevation, then shot off towards the west at an incredible speed and was lost to sight. Total viewing time was about 1 minute.

If you know anything about this case, would you please contact me, Brian Vike at sighting@telus.net


UFO Veered Off At A Incredible Speed Over Wasa, British Columbia.

Date:  July 26, 2003
Time:  1:20 a.m.

Two men were outside enjoying the night and a cold drink. An object that they earlier thought was just a bright star, started to quickly get bigger and brighter.

It appeared to be moving directly towards them when it suddenly veered to the south and flew off at an incredible speed. No sound was heard.

If you know anything about this case, would you please contact me, Brian Vike at sighting@telus.net


British Columbia UFOs, Beam Of Light, Frightened Residents (Major UFO Event – Investigated By Brian Vike)

Over 200 witnesses speak out - We Want To Know!

What can cause so many residents in various communities from Kamloops, British Columbia through to the Okanagan and the Kootenays in British Columbia left scratching their heads, wondering what it was they all witnessed.

Also many people became very frightened and ran into their homes. The answers to the questions I have been asked have been hard to come by, but we certainly know something extraordinary did take place on July 28, 2003 in the early morning hours.

The story begins with a family who was camping at St. Mary's Lake, which is located approximately 12 miles east of Kimberley, British Columbia, Canada. Around 12:45 a.m. the husband and wife decided to do some star gazing as the children were asleep and the night was warm and the sky clear and full of stars.

As the couple stood looking into the night sky they observed a very bright, white light heading in a southeasterly direction. The moon sized light was witnessed flying low over top Bootleg Mountain and across the lake and at times it's speed did vary. As it slowed, then picking up speed once again the witnesses watched the light zig zag slightly and at times it seemed to wobble until it was out of sight.

When they arrived back home from their camping trip they contacted the Kimberley RCMP detachment and spoke to a Cpl. Rod Carbonneau to enquire if others had reported seeing the object. Cpl. Rod Carbonneau said the detachment received no calls over this matter.

The Cranbrook Airport was also contacted and asked if there were any aircraft in the area of the sighting .... but none were reported in the vicinity the object was observed. For the couple who watched this amazing sight on July 28, 2003 not many answers were fourth coming.

A couple of area residents did telephone the folks who watched the event telling them what they also saw that night, and another did make a report to the local newspaper.
From A Few Witnesses To a Flood Of Calls.

A report was made to Peter Davenport at the NUFORC in Seattle, Washington and then the sighting report was forwarded on to me, Brian Vike in Houston, British Columbia for a follow-up investigation.

What I did not realize at this time was just how large this one case was going to be. From a handful of witnesses the case exploded into a major event where I ended up with over 200 eye witnesses to something very mysterious.

Two things happened in the early morning hours that Sunday, a large moon sized object was seen by many area residents, and what followed left many folks in communities such as Kamloops, Vernon, Kelowna, Kimberley, Cranbrook and as far as Jaffray, British Columbia scratching their heads wondering what it was they saw.

A beam, or ray of white light was observed from Kamloops as far southeast as Jaffray, British Columbia. People who watched the strange and puzzling event said the white light looked as bright as a florescent tube and was arced from horizon to horizon as if one was viewing a rainbow. The beam of light sat almost stationary in this position for approximately an hour before dissipating.

Almost everyone who witnessed the beam of white light said they had never seen anything like this before. All said they have watched the northern lights many times, but they commented this was certainly not the northern lights!

A Few Of The Eye Witness Accounts - The Light/Object (July 28, 2003)

A gentleman from Cranbrook, B.C. telephoned me and reported that he and his family were sitting outside and were discussing how bad the forest fires are throughout the southern interior when one of the family members spotted what they thought was a airplane with it's landing lights on and heading in their direction. As the bright white light drew closer to them, the size was growing rapidly and so was the brightness of the light.

Before they knew it, the light/object was upon them. The family was so frightened due to the immense size of the light/object being almost at the edge of their property that the children ran into the house screaming. The mother followed closely behind.

The father followed his wife and kids into the home, but stopped to take one last glance at whatever it was, and watched it make a 90 degree turn to the south. When I spoke to the dad he told me that they heard not a sound coming from it.

Another report came from a lady who was with a group of people on their holiday at their cabin on one of the local Kimberley, B.C. lakes. She told me they were sitting outside on the deck when one of the guests pointed towards the northwest. Low over one of the mountains came a huge, extremely bright white light traveling slowly in a zig zag pattern heading to the southeast.

As it got closer to the resort area, many people became uncomfortable due to how strange the object/light was acting. As it passed straight overhead not a sound was heard. Some of the folks who were there said it was like looking at a full moon on a clear night. It was that big!

Two men in a pick-up truck traveling north along the highway just south of Wycliffe spotted the large bright object flying south. As they watched the large light/object close in on their location they pulled the truck over to the side of the highway, and jumped out of the vehicle to get a better look.

Due to it being so low, so bright, and passing directly over top of them the light from the object lit up the highway and surrounding area. Both men stood frozen in their tracks and speechless. Both fellows said it moved quickly in a straight line and made no unusual maneuvers. Again no sound was heard which is remarkable due to how close it was to these men, and all the other witnesses.

The above is a small example of what folks saw that night. There are many more reports here of area residents reporting seeing the same thing.

A Few Of The Eye Witness Accounts - Beam Of Light (July 28, 2003)

One lady said what she saw was very strange, it didn't behave like the northern lights as she noted that the lights danced across the sky, or looked like a curtain of shimmering light.

She wondered if the long dry hot weather may have something to do with what she was seeing. But her thoughts changed quickly as she watched the beam of light come from the northwest horizon and impaled itself on one of the local hills and that is where it ended, according to this witness.

A party of four witnesses were out for a few days on one of the areas lakes just outside of Kimberley, B.C. Everyone was having a good time talking and having a few spirits. One of the men who was sitting on a camping chair had just poured himself a drink, when he looked up and said to the rest of the people he was with, "do you see what I am seeing"? Everyone replied, "yes"!

The man who asked the question was so surprised at what he was looking at, he poured his drink onto the ground and thought he'd had one to many that evening! They all watched a beam of narrow bright white light run in an arc from horizon to horizon.

First they wondered if it might have been a search light as it was so bright, but they soon ruled this out due to the miles and miles the light covered. Again all these witnesses said this event lasted for approximately one hour before it dissipated.

Some three weeks after people saw the beam of light on July 28, 2003, I had calls from Kelowna and Kimberley British Columbia reporting that the beam of light was back in the night sky.

Two Kelowna residents stood on the patio with phone in hand reporting what it was they were seeing. The exact white beam of light sat stationary running from horizon to horizon and was extremely bright.

Four Kimberley residents stood outside watching the beam of light, they reported standing under a street lamp and even with brightness from the street light they could clearly see the beam of light sitting in the dark sky.


There is no doubt that something very unusual took place on Sunday, July 28, 2003 in the wee hours that morning. What folks saw in all these communities seems to be a mystery. But I have tried to come up with some reasonable answers for all the questions everyone had for me.

Here Is What I Know.

Over 200 witnesses watched an amazing event unfold on July 28, 2003 (early morning). Some observed the object and others observed the beam of light. (Exact numbers are broken down for how many saw the object or beam of light below.What I didn't say is how many saw both).

38 witnesses observed a huge, bright white low flying light/object.
162 witnesses observed the reported beam of bright white light.

The International Space Station passed over Kimberley, B.C., at 00:24 hrs. on July 27, 2003.

A Fire Ball was observed flying in a southeasterly direction over the West Coast of Canada and the U.S.

Most of the witnesses reported the light/object and beam of light running from the northwest to the southeast.

There would have been a lot of air traffic in some of these areas due to the fire fighting efforts to control the devastating forest fires which raged through some of these areas in the summer of 2003.

Our hearts go out to the people who were effected.

So, the questions that need an be answered are.... What was the strange, large, glowing bright object? Did the object cause the beam of light which sat stationary in the night sky for approximately an hour as the object traveled through the areas?

As for the object, this is certainly a mystery. After a lot of time speaking with witnesses, looking at data on astronomical events, checking on the flight paths, seeing if there were aircraft in these areas flying at the time of the sighting...... I have come up against a brick wall. I have not found any rational explanation for what people saw that night.

Fireballs for example as far as I know do not make 90 degree turns to another direction. Also seeing that the object was so low, traveling rather slow in many of the reports and not making a sound.

This again is certainly strange. Something else I found rather interesting, was the fact that reported sightings had dropped from my area here in the pacific northwest of British Columbia and reports of unusual crafts of every kind were now being seen and reported by many people residing in the areas from Kamloops, the Okanagan straight through into the Kootenays. Almost every different shape, color and size have been reported to Brian Vike. Did the over 800 forest fires attract visitors from above? I am sure we will never really know the answer to that question..... ?

The beam of white light ended up still being as baffling as the object. When reports started coming in I was sure what everyone was seeing was nothing more than the northern lights. But as the list of witnesses grew, and hearing their comments, I started wondering if there was a connection to these unknowns and the beam of white light.

Out of the 126+ witnesses who observed the ray of light running across the night sky from horizon to horizon, only one report was filed saying they believed it to be nothing more than the northern lights. (which I report on below). Everyone else said they have never witnessed anything like in their lives. All said they have watched the northern lights on many occasions, and in their words "this was not the northern lights".

A radio station host put a question on air to the people in the area, asking "has anyone seen strange lights in the night sky?" I was told reports flooded in over this beam of light, and how everyone was left not knowing what it was they saw.

To be fair to all sides, I placed below an email I received from a person who did have some knowledge in astronomy, weather phenomena and the northern lights. One thing I would like to point out, is that what the gentleman viewed was not on the day of this major event.

The email came from a gentleman who, on the evening of July 26, 2003 and morning of July 27, 2003, stated that a sailing regatta was held by the Kelowna Yacht Club.

Although the event discussed in the report above took place in the early morning hours of July 28, 2003, I thought the report below was important due to how close all of the events were to one another. Plus I want to give both sides on this case.
