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

Brian Vike's Favorite Cases.

From Brian Vike – Canadian UFO Investigator (The Vike Factor)

Vike Factor Note: The below sighting reports come from different communities throughout the northwestern part of British Columbia Canada.

These sighting reports are just tiny example of what Brian Vike investigated throughout these areas.


Investigator Brian Vike’s Note: For this report, report seven, I start off with another large case. Missing Time In Kelowna, British Columbia.

Alien Abduction/Missing Time in Kelowna, British Columbia - One Ladies Story (Pictures)

By Brian Vike (The Vike Factor - Houston, British Columbia Centre For UFO Research)

The story is real, but one of the names in this report is fictitious for obvious reasons. Corina, the driver of the vehicle is her real name.

Monday - August 18, 2003 I received a telephone call from Corina who lives in Kelowna, British Columbia.

The lady was very upset and had a time speaking of the event that took place with her and a close female friend of hers.

She told me today that a friend had brought over a newspaper article which was run in the Kelowna Capital Newspaper. The headline read "Seeking Witnesses to UFO." which showed up on August 15, 2003

Here is her story.

She tells that her and her friend are having a very hard time dealing with what took place. Also another couple who lives in the area watched an aerial craft hovering close to the location where the two ladies had parked there car at the side of the highway and gave confirmation to the incident, or at least witnessed an object.

At approximately 12:05 a.m., July 31, 2003 the two ladies were playing around on the computer when Linda said, we haven't done any star gazing in a long time, so Corina said, you're right, lets go out and do some star gazing.

They left home at 12:05 a.m. heading out to an area where they would get a look at the clear night sky without having lights to obscure their view. Corina drove to Glenmore, which is north from where she lives and is on the back road heading to Winfield from Kelowna, British Columbia.

They were driving along and Corina reported that there was quite a bit of traffic for that time of the night, but soon after they decided to stop just off to the side of the road to see what they might notice, the traffic stopped coming.

Above Picture: This is where Corina pulled her Jeep over to the side of the road and they both got out.

There was not a light from any vehicles, not anything other than a very dark stretch of road. Corina grabbed her flashlight and shone it into the sky as she has done this in the past. Her friend Linda had the binoculars on the other side of the car scanning the starry night sky.

They were there only a minute out of the car when her Linda said, this is really strange. There are three stars up in the sky and formed into a triangle shape. All three lights at this time were solid white.

Both ladies watched as the three white lights started moving, but moving together. The witness with the binoculars said stars don't do that, and Corina replies, of course not, as she thought it may have been a plane or something.

Above Picture: This is where Corina spotted all the Alien eyes looking at them.

Linda replies, no this is not a plane as the lights were changing color to a neon green and the object had stopped and hovered just ahead of their car on the highway.

Corina turned the headlights off, and shone her flashlight down the road in front of her car. They were worrying about animals such as a bear, cougars, etc. being around in this isolated area. As she shone the light up the road both of the women spotted something which frightened them a lot.

Five sets of eyes staring at approximately 40 feet away from them. As frightened as they were, their first thoughts were of coyotes or some other wild animal, but she said once you really look your brain takes it in.

Corina describes the creatures as being roughly four feet tall, dark gray shoulders and coming towards the women. Corina said "I was so scared I could hardly talk, and could hardly breathe". She yelled to her friend Linda, "get in the car, get in the car".

Corina said they both scrambled to get back into the vehicle, but she said it was like moving through quicksand and it felt horrible. Being so terrified and trying to move as fast as they possibly could, it felt as if everything was slowing down around them.

Once they were both back in the car, Corina tried to turn the ignition on so she could get the power windows up. But all the electrics on the car was failing. The dome light, headlights were going off and on, on their own and as she said. "Everything was going nuts" !

Finally the car started and they turned around in the middle of the road and sped off towards home and as they traveled along they noticed a fair bit of traffic coming in their direction. (Corina commented to me, where was all the traffic when all this was happening?)

As they drove along the road, Corina said to Linda, "this is the weirdest thing. "She said I feel like electricity, my whole body is tingling, just like I was zapped by a charge from a battery". When Linda heard this, she said, "I didn't want to say anything to you as you might think I was nuts, but I am feeling the same. As if I was hit by an electrical charge."

As Linda was explaining how she felt, and facing Corina she glanced at the clock in car and said, "Jesus Corina, look at the time" ! Corina said what are you talking about ? Linda said we were only stopped and out of the car for a few minutes at the most, and the time of the car's clock reads an extra 25 minutes of time.

As they drove along and close to home they both discussed it and wondered if they had imagined it all. As they were just about home, they turned onto Baker Street which is covered in darkness next to a field. All of a sudden they saw this bright, glowing neon green ball low in the sky.

The object started moving to the right, "stop", left, "stop", right, "stop", left, "stop" and then it started to move away until the ladies car came to a halt, and so did the object. Before they knew it, the ball of green light started heading towards them at a high rate of speed and hovered high above their car.

At this point they just wanted to get to their home and be as far away from whatever it was as possible.

The driver sped off quickly again and they headed into an orchard which was very close by. They thought they would not be seen hiding amongst the trees, plus there was no lighting in this area to reveal their position.

Corina looked at her friend and said, "they will never find us here". Both women are sitting in the car trying to get themselves together as the driver said she was losing it at this point. Only after a very short time after arriving in the orchard Linda said, Corina you better look out the front windscreen and look up slightly.

We don't have just one green ball of light, there are now three, glowing green objects. The way the green lights were in the sky, it looked as if the they formed a triangle formation and all moving now together. After a short period of time each of the green lights moved away in different directions.

(Brian Vike asked if the witness could give some idea of how large the green lights were. The witness told me each of the lights were approximately half the size of a full moon). After seeing the lights flying off into different directions the ladies raced home as quickly as they possibly could.

Once safe at home, both ladies shaken, they tried to come up with some reasonable explanation for what just happened.

They tried to put it out of their minds but that was impossible ! Later on, both ladies turned in for the night and when they woke up in the morning, Corina discovered a large bruise on her left breast and another on the bottom of her foot. She did not know how they got there but she did know they were extremely painful.

As she sat drinking a cup of coffee, Linda finally got up and was walking down the hall towards the kitchen when she said, "god, good morning - do I feel rough this morning". After Linda finished saying that, Corina watched as blood came pouring from Linda's nose.

Corina jumped up, ran and grabbed a towel. Linda also commented that she was having a lot of pain in her lower back area. She asked Corina to have a look to see if there was anything that could be seen.

So she looked and gasped, there was a large circle burned into her skin and was located in the middle, lower back area (tail bone). Also bruises were found on Linda's body as well, some of them appeared to look like finger marks and there were three of them on each thigh. Both women at this point were shocked, upset and very frightened.

Linda, who was up visiting from the Abbotsford ended her holiday and headed back home. Two days after being home in Abbotsford, B.C. she went to consult her family doctor due to still experiencing the terrible pain which was originating from her lower back, plus it was not getting any better.

Her doctor examined her, and her injury to her back, the doctor said if I didn't know any better I would say you have a radiation burn. He was of course referring to the burn mark on Linda's back.

The doctor is still trying to heal this mark on her back, as something had burned right through the outer layer of this ladies skin.

Investigator Brian Vike's Note: I would also like to add, this Missing Time event took place around the same date over 200 witnessed watched one amazing event unfold in southeastern British Columbia. I also received a flood of sighting reports which also came from this area. July 27/28 to August 18, 2003. (Over 200 Witnesses Speak Out - British Columbia UFOs, Beam Of Light, Puzzled And Frightened Residents).

Connection With Missing Time Experience In Kelowna, British Columbia.

This witness had no idea about the missing time event which involved Corina and her friend.

I had a telephone call from a lady who lives in Kelowna, British Columbia today, August 26, 2003. She explained that a friend had cut out an article which ran in the Kelowna Capital Newspaper about a UFO Investigator Seeking Witnesses To A UFO Sighting.

The lady told me she saw an unusual object in the night sky on July 31, 2003. She also told me she has a habit of glancing up into the sky as she has a beautiful view of the stars and it is very dark in her area.

On this night the woman had already turned in, but couldn't sleep due to how warm it was in her home. The lady got up out of bed and went outside for some weird reason and when outside the lady looked towards the south. As the witness sat out looking around she spotted something, her thoughts were there shouldn't be any airplanes out here at this time of night, but there was something very strange.

She watched an object traveling from east to west and described the object as being almond in shape and a Luminas green in color. The witness also reports only seeing one green light.

The lady reports that from their location, which was not at all far away from the two ladies who experienced the missing time, something very strange took place. She brought out her camera to take some pictures, but as she tried to take her photos, the camera would not work.

It went dead! Also she reports that the evening was warm, and she could hear coyotes cutting up. But soon they became silent, and so did everything else around them including the crickets which were making some noise. She said it was if someone had clicked off a switch. The air went from a nice sweet smelling night to a musty cold in this dead silence.

Also this witness said that two nights ago a person telephoned the radio station (CKOV) on an open line call in program and reported seeing a streak of light, and at the front of this streak a round ball was noted and the caller reported "it" had landed somewhere in South East Kelowna in the exact area where the green object had been witnessed, also where the two ladies had their missing time event.

Investigator Brian Vike's Note: This sighting is very, very important due to the date of this sighting, the time it was witnessed, the color which was green and the shape, which is reported here to be almond in shape.

Also what has me all excited over it, is due to the location where the object was observed, which was where the two ladies watched the beings on the side of the highway and the green lights, then experienced the missing time.

There will be more coming on this case, also I have interviewed the second witness who had the missing time on July 31, 2003 and will be writing up the report really quick.

Before I forget, I will be contacting CKOV in hopes of getting some information, and if not maybe I may get lucky and have them request that this witness to the streak of light get a hold of me.

Continuing Alien Abduction Related Problems For British Columbia Family.

November 8th and 9th, 2003

Since July 31, 2003, after a UFO encounter, missing time and disturbing episodes which followed, one of the women has continued to have some medical problems.

Corina continues to have a constant feeling of pressure on her head and is becoming worse as the days and weeks go by. This feeling of pressure has now moved into her neck. On November 8, 2003 Corina, while at her home, became cold as her body temperature dropped to 35.2 C.

She immediately called the hospital and talked to a nurse who informed her that it sounded like hypothermia was setting in. The color of Corina's skin started to change, to become almost whitish/grey.

She was freezing to the point where she felt paralyzed and had major problems moving or walking. Also her heart was beating really irregularly and she reports it was down to 44 bpm. Corina's daughter is also experiencing an irregular heart rate as well.

Investigator Brian Vike’s Note: The average normal temperature is 98.6 F (37 C). Corina temperature dropped a little over 2 degrees and no explanation has been given as to what has caused this to happen.

If your recorded rectal or ear temperature is less than 97 F (36.11 C), you have an abnormally low body temperature (hypothermia). If your rectal or ear temperature is 95 F (35 C) or lower, call a health professional immediately.

Information on taking your heartbeat measurement.

 Your pulse is caused by your heart beating. As your heart beats and forces blood through your body, you can feel a throbbing sensation (the pulse) by putting your fingers over one of your arteries at any point where the artery comes close to the surface of your skin, such as your wrist, neck, or upper arm.

Counting your pulse rate is a simple way to estimate how fast your heart is beating. Pulse rate measurements are often done by a health professional as part of a physical examination or in an emergency, but you can easily learn to measure your own pulse rate as well.

A pulse is usually described in terms of its rate, which is the number of beats per minute (bpm).

However, the rhythm and strength of the heartbeat can also be noted, as well as whether the blood vessel feels hard or soft. An irregular rhythm, a weak pulse, or a hard blood vessel may indicate a medical condition that needs further evaluation.

The pulse rate is measured by counting the beats in a set period of time (at least 15 to 20 seconds) and multiplying that number to get the number of beats per minute.

When you exercise, have a fever, or are under stress, your heart rate usually speeds up to meet your body's increased need for oxygen and nutrients carried in the blood.

As a result, your pulse rate normally varies from minute to minute. Unless your pulse rate is being measured to check your fitness level or in an emergency situation, it is usually measured after you have rested for 10 minutes or more. This measurement is called a resting pulse rate. It is an accurate and simple assessment of the health of the heart and circulatory system.

I always recommend to people if they feel there are medical problems that they seek out a health professional.

On Saturday night Corina's daughter went to bed, after a short period of time she started having an unusual and vivid dream about being in some type of vehicle with two beings. She felt that they were there to take her somewhere. The young girl felt that where ever they were going wasn't the place to be.

So in her "dream" she jumped from the vehicle and landed on the ground hitting her right leg and rolled along the ground for a short distance. Corina's daughter, who also has been a victim of these unwanted visits by beings from elsewhere, woke up Sunday morning, November 9, 2003 with extreme pain in her knee.

Actually as she climbed out of her bed her leg folded up right underneath her. She was fine the night before, hadn't been involved in anything which may have caused the injury that I have reported below.

Corina's daughter's cartilage in her right knee is ripped/torn and she has to be on crutches for a while until it heals up. The doctor asked the girl if she had took part in any sporting activities, or goofing around with friends, "she replied no"!

After they left the doctors office and some time later the pain moved up into her thigh and is getting worse. Corina is taking her daughter back to the doctor, or the hospital to have her checked out again.

Corina told me blood tests will be done in hopes of determining what caused the drop in Corina's body temperature, also checking to see if there are any problems developing with her daughter. She also mentioned that both her and her daughter are craving salted products and are extremely thirsty.

Both mother and daughter are totally exhausted, as if the two of them hadn't slept for days. Corina said, how can a person who is sleeping soundly in their bed wake up in the morning with a torn cartilage in her right knee. I have to agree with her. Very strange indeed.

Investigator Brian Vike’s Note: I telephoned Corina Monday night to see how both her and her daughter were feeling. Corina sounded extremely tired, like she had no energy even to carry on a conversation.

I must say I find this to be very upsetting for me to hear what has...... and is ....taking place with this family. I also am going to try to get down to see them if the weather holds. There is also more which has taken place, but due to this information being of a personal nature, "I will not" be adding this to any of my reports.

Corina mentioned that a couple of nights before November 8, 2003 her daughter woke up at 3:00 a.m. to a loud and very strange and unusual sound coming from the orchard behind their home. And the dogs in the area were making such a noise.

She was so frightened from hearing such a loud and weird sound that she pulled the covers up over her head. She couldn't even give me an example of what the noise sounded like as it was so strange.

The very next night after Corina's daughter heard this crazy noise, she said she got woken up at 4:05 a.m. to the same sound, or at least something she could not make any sense of.

Corina said the dogs were going crazy, the cows in the area were acting up, so she got out of bed and moved onto the balcony and looked toward the orchard. It was dark and she could see nothing but could still hear the sound.

She told me she started clapping her hands, making noises herself and the strange sound eventually stopped. Although the dogs still were acting up in the area but since the sound had stopped, Corina decided to go back to bed.

However, no sooner did she get back under the covers than the noise returned. She rolled over and tried to block out the sound until she ended up going to sleep.

Investigator Brian Vike’s Note: I tried to find out if abductees have even experienced hypothermia after an encounter. After searching and reading all kinds of matter I came up with nothing.

So I contacted Mr. Derrel Sims and Mr. Whitley Stieber to ask if they had encountered anyone reporting hypothermia right after an event. They both were so helpful. Also I contacted other abductees, but they also said they had never experienced hypothermia after an abduction.

Of course this raises some questions which people were interested in. From what I was told a lot of discussion has not taken place on the idea of hypothermia after an abduction, mainly because no one has reported this phenomena as taking place.

Some abductees report feeling very cold leading up to the actual abduction, also feeling very cold just after it took place. Many report a coldness when inside a craft to the point they were shaking. Some of this I am sure is due to the fear one must go through when being taken.

So why is this woman reporting hypothermia ? Is it due from being in a very cold environment (on a craft), plus the fright of the whole situation. Did this occur because she was dropped off outside in a cold environment, which it was at the time of this incident.

Or was the hypothermia condition caused by a medical problem no one is aware of right now. There always seems to be more questions than answers. Maybe the blood tests, etc.. will show something. We will have to wait and see and pray for some answers.

I will leave this off here for now. I would like to say this is the end of this story, but I have my doubts. The good thing is I keep in contact with Corina on a daily basis and have told her if she just wants to chat, then call me anytime.

More news that I just received:

I just had an email from a lady who resides in Vernon, British Columbia. She has informed me that a couple of business owners were in Kelowna, British Columbia on November 8, 2003 and watched green lights in the south west sky's over Kelowna, B.C.

This event took place the very same night problems started again for the Kelowna family. I hope to have a full report on the sighting of the green lights.

Also I want everyone to know, no information had been given out to anyone about what took place on November 8, 2003 with Corina and her daughter. So again we have green lights showing up and strange events taking place with a close friend.

I can honestly say, in my opinion, there creatures that take folks from the comfort of their homes are not here to give humanity a gift, as some may suggest. They are here to experiment, degrade and frighten everyone who comes in contact with them. No one will ever convince me other wise.

Take good care out there, and please if anyone who has been involved in an abduction and has ever experienced hypothermia after the incident, I would really appreciate hearing from you.

Thank you.

Houston, British Columbia.

Date:  July 31, 2003

Time:  11:30 p.m.

The witness had just gotten into bed when something caught her eye, so she looked out of the bedroom window. She saw an extremely bright white light in the northeastern sky.

It was at a low altitude and about the size of her finger nail held at arm's length. It seemed to have a number of white lights running around the outside of it.

At first it was travelling in a straight line, but it starting zig-zagging before it disappeared.

Total viewing time was about 4 seconds. No sound was heard, even though the window was wide open.

Kelowna, British Columbia.

Date:  August 3, 2003

Time:  7:30 p.m.

A woman watched a perfectly round silver object slowly cross the daylight sky in an easterly direction.

She did not witness a trail or tail or hear any sound from the object.

She guessed that it may have been as large as a nickel held at arm's length. After about 2 minutes she lost sight of the object behind some hills.

Yarrow, British Columbia

Date: Early August 2003

Time: Midnight

Email report.

Hello, I am writing to you in regard to the light beam you report on your site. I would like to add the following. In early August ( It was sometime after the east coast blackout and prior to the Mars approach of August 27) my wife and I were parked beside the Vedder River at Yarrow, British Columbia to observe Mars.

The following occurred: At approximately midnight to the northeast we observed a very bright aurora. It was the brightest display I have ever observed this far south and the following day the news reported it had been seen as far south as California.

Between midnight and one am we noticed a band of light as you describe. It stretched from the northern horizon (Sumas Mountain) to the southern horizon (Vedder Mountain).

It was about the width of a finger held at arms length and was self luminous. We watched it for some time until it dissipated. That night the moon was either full or nearly so. Although we did not use them to observe the light beam we had with us an 8” refractor, 7x50 binoculars and a Cannon digital camera.

I am an experienced amateur astronomer and private pilot having sent many hours observing both the day and night sky over the years. I have never seen anything like this previously.

Kelowna, British Columbia.

Date:  August, 2003

Time:  Evening.

Dear Sir, I was just visiting your web site and I must say what I read not only shocked me, it sent shivers up and down my spine!

I felt I had to contact you and tell you about my experience with the sighting of the mysterious beam of light that was observed back in July and again three weeks later, which is when I witnessed this odd phenomena.

It was fairly late in the evening as I recall because I was already in bed watching T.V. when all of a sudden I caught something out of the corner of my eye. I turned my head and out of my bedroom window I saw this very bright beam of light hovering in the sky going from northwest to southeast at what I would judge to be at least 20,000 feet, or better in altitude.

It looked to be about 100 feet. in width and stretched across a long portion of the sky. This beam of light was very much like what you would see from a neon tube in that it had a very distinct outline, much like a very long rectangle.

It looked like it might be rotating slowly, but it was very hard to tell really, because of the brightness of the object. I say object because that is the best way I can describe what it was I saw.

The out line of this beam was very distinct in that within it, it was so bright and yet all around it, it was a very dark clear night. You could see the stars above and below and I saw a plane flying at a high altitude (much higher and further away) off to the southwest, travelling from west to east, as is not unusual any night of the week.

This sighting was unlike any thing I have ever witnessed before in my lifetime. I have lived up north and out on the prairies, and have seen the northern lights on hundred's of occasions and I can tell you this was definitely not what I saw that night!

This beam of light, for want of a better term sat stationary in the sky for a few seconds then seemed to blink out from south to north, like it was being drawn back to a point of origin. The best way I can describe what I mean by this is it was much like what I remember seeing in the movie 'Star Wars', when Luke drew his light saber sword. I know that seems funny, but it is the only way to describe what I saw that night.

I hollered for my room-mate to come and see it. By the time he got to my room this thing was gone, but he would certainly tell you I was quite agitated and excited by what I had just witnessed. I could not believe my eyes, but I said to the roomy "there is no way anyone who was outside at that time of night could possibly have missed it!".

We watched the news on our local station for the next few nights in hopes someone else may have seen it, but nothing came up and so I never gave it another thought as I have seen many strange things in the night sky over the years I have lived here in Kelowna; many times with other people, but have never reported anything before because I did not want the attention.

So when I came across your website tonight you can understand how it hit me to find out I was not alone! I just got a computer last week and am only now learning how to use it, but I had to write you when I saw the reports on your sight. I had no idea you even existed until tonight.

Anyway, I will be watching the sky more often now as I know I am not alone in wondering what is going on up there.

Stationary Light Over Kelowna, British Columbia.

Date: Approximately August 2003.

Time: Around 10:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Message: Hi there, I just read the article on Castanet about UFO sightings. I moved from Kelowna to Chilliwack in July 2004 but I saw something strange, a light over Okanagan Lake around August 2003.

My Condo was facing the Mission just south of KLO Road and I was living on the top floor (4) and had an excellent view from Black Mountain to Okanagan Lake. I was still a smoker then and spent lots of time on my balcony.

I saw this light which was about 70% stationary and at times moved to the right or to the left. Watched this with my binoculars for more than an hour and I knew that it was not an airplane.

Airplanes do not stay in one place and I thought perhaps it was a UFO and then I laughed it off as being absurd. I told my children what I had seen and they did not know what to think of that story. This must have been around 10:30 to 11:00 at night. So, that is my story.

Have a great day.

Kelowna, British Columbia

Date: August 1, 2003

Time: Approximately 10:30 to 11:00 p.m.

Email report.

Mr. Vike, I didn't see the lights on July 27, 2003, but I think it was Friday September (Correct date - August 1, 2003) 1st I observed from my deck strange lights that appeared to be out in space.

At first I thought it was a plane but then convinced myself it was to far up to be a plane. My next thought was a satellite, but then I saw another one and another one.

We counted at least six and they traveled at different speeds and seemed to zig zag every once in a while. We watched for quite a while then they stopped going by.

One seemed to travel at a great speed as for as high up as it appeared it crossed the sky quite quickly. It may have a reasonable explanation but none I can come up with. I do not consider myself a believer of UFOs, but I do know it is a big universe and to think in all of that space we are the only one's would be kind of a stretch.

Additional Information:

Hi Brian, it was pretty late and I was on my to bed. I said September 1, but I meant August 1 of this year (2003). I'll tackle your questions one at a time.

As for meteors, I'm no space expert but I do watch the sky allot and I've seen allot of meteors and shooting stars and they definitely not either of those. I mentioned they zig zagged once and a while and I should mention they also traveled in different directions. There were no tails or trails behind them but they were also pretty high up, just a dot of light.

As for time of night it must have been 10:30 or 11:00. My step-daughter and I watched for around 20 minutes. I say August 1, but I'm not quite sure as I didn't think much about it until my wife pointed out the story in the capital News the other day.

There was no pattern to them. They just traveled back and forth. We saw several but I was guessing we were watching 5 or 6 more than once. No stoppage and no sound as far up as they were.

It was kind of funny, earlier in the evening a plane passed over and my father in law told the kids it was a UFO. When we saw the lights we were quite taken a back.

We tried to watch through binoculars but couldn't focus on the lights to get a good look at them. I told the Step-daughter that if they were UFOs then the air force jets should be coming by anytime but they didn't come. I'm sure what we saw had to have a reasonable explanation but I had to think after I read the story. I would be interested in hearing if anyone else saw these lights. Feel free to contact me if you would like anymore info.

On your website I noticed there seems to be allot of activity around the Houston area, what do you think they would be interested in up there? Take it easy and have a good weekend.

If you seen this object, or anything else like it, would you please contact me, Brian Vike at

Thank you to the witness for the report.

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 !"

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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 b/c 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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/object162 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.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
