Red/Orange Lights In The Sky Over Nanaimo Vancouver Island British Columbia (Video And Pictures)

Date:  October 13, 2012
Time:  7:20 p.m. - 7:40 p.m.

Number of witnesses: 5
Number of Objects: 4
Shape of Objects: Round and large.

Full Description of Event/Sighting: My parents phoned to say there were some strange lights going across the sky. At approximately 7:20 p.m. they saw two large red/orange lights moving close together.

The lights appeared in the south and moved toward the north. They eventually started heading west then suddenly disappeared.

We looked outside to see the third light following the exact same path. It looked red to the naked eye, but appeared orange in the photos we took.

After this third light disappeared like the first two, a fourth light appeared in the same starting position as the others.

It followed a similar path as the other three lights, but it was moving markedly faster than the previous lights.

Once again, it turned to the west and just disappeared.

They were all completely silent and moved slowly across the sky. They were large enough that we expected to hear some sound emitting from them but nothing. The lights appeared to be flashing or glowing brighter then darker.

No others were sighted after the fourth light.

The photos and couple seconds of video are poor quality, but let me know if you would like them.

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.

Also, please feel free to send in your sightings that have happened years ago. So many of these older sightings are nothing short of amazing.

  1. Hi I was just up at UVic at 10pm I watched the same kind of object fly over campus it burned like a sodium orange almost no noise but really bright slow moving and linear motion not like an orbiting object. I have a video of it to. I only started filming because I was supprised it made no noise.

  2. I live in Sturgeon Falls, Ontario,Canada. What is described above was just witness by my self, brother in law and a neighbor. that the four objects of orange light moved through the the sky with no sound. the event took all but 5 min and this was December 29, 2012 at 9:10 p.m. The neighbor has pictures.

  3. i live in omaha nebraska and a couple freinds and i was star gazing when what looked like a star started moving across the sky getting dimmer then brighter as it coasted across sky then disappeared. then we saw two more doing the same but in different parts of the sky. what are they?

  4. Today between 3 and 4 pm my wife E. saw an irregular object hurtling in the sky giving off a yellowy-green light here in Nanaimo. It lasted, oh, 3 seconds, and then disappeared. Since this is 2 years (and 7 days) after the earlier sighting, I'm wondering if we're looking at the earth going through a meteorite cloud on its annual journey.
