UFO SIGHTING REPORT
July 28th 2003
I keep receiving reports from July 28, 2003. This one just came in today (October 10th). If my brain is working right, I believe there is around 180 witnesses to this event, plus a large object which passed through the area almost at the same time. What ever the so called ray of light was that was witnessed, well this is still up in the air. I am sure there are a lot of ideas floating around to what this may have been. But as said at the bottom of this witnesses email, the Penticton Observatory was contacted and they had no idea what this was. So just another mystery !
I live in Cherryville, B.C. My son and his friend woke me up at about 12:30 a.m. on July 28th, to verify what they were looking at in the sky.
The ray of light (using the term "ray" loosely as the light did not have actual defined edge and straightness like a beam of light - the edges of the light were "fuzzy"), appeared to come from the west (I say appeared because it just looked like it was just sitting in the sky) and went straight East dividing the whole sky.
It was spectacular!
They did not notice anything previous to this - they were partying.
We watched the light for a good half hour - it seemed to move - like almost divide into two parts and then come back together. It was quite low as you could distinguish that the stars (which were very visible that night) were way off in the distance.
I told my dad about this and his first reaction was that it was probably something to do with the HART (I don't know if I spelled that correctly) Project. HBCC UFO (HAARP Project she is referring to).
A friend at work who lives in Armstrong said here husband woke up that night and went outside because he thought it was awfully light out and he new it was not a full moon. He witnessed the same thing. He contacted the Penticton Observatory and they said that they had quite a few enquiries about the "light in the sky" but had no explanation.
