UFO SIGHTING REPORT
Mid July 2003
Kelowna, British Columbia
Date: Mid July 2003
Time: approx: 12:00 a.m. (midnight)
HBCC UFO Note: Now this sighting report I am very interested in due to the Missing Time case I worked on, and still working on. Three couples have reported seeing green lights in the area where the ladies had the missing time. Although this sighting report is a bit earlier in July, we still may have a connection to the whole case.
I saw in mid- July may have left evidence of some sort if you would like to look into it further. Sometime in the middle of July 2003 before I went to bed I smoked a cigarette on my back balcony facing I think SW looking towards the mountains behind my house. It was around midnight and I seen this bright neon green light lighting up the base of the mountain moving slowly along. There is rolling hills directly behind my house. Behind those hills a draw with ponds up those hills complete grass until it reaches a mountain same parallel as Black Mountain that is the ridge I am talking about but behind black mountain towards the back country in the direction of Ellison more it is hard to explain. Anyways this bright green light moved around level with where the trees would about be. This light I saw was not too high in the sky. I kept watching it didn't know what it was figure a UFO again.
Weird thing at 2 am that morning sirens woke me up and I was very disturbed so I went outside for a cigarette and it looked like a huge forest fire coming towards my house, flames in the air and I couldn't tell how far away the fire was so I woke up my boyfriend and we started running around wetting everything down. Later that morning my hubby went to work, no sleep sadly, and he drove down Lahka Rd to see how far fire was away. About 5 acres away we estimated. Strangely enough these fires started way back away from the roads, way up the hill pass the houses in the middle of a grass field up towards the mountain.(the night I saw that green Light!) I have kept wondering how the fire could have started because it really was an odd spot to start. There was no lightening that night either. Clear sky. Never heard about this huge grass fire on the news! (dumpster fires make the news) My neighbors didn't even know the fire happened! I know the previous week to this fire that someone through a carelessly discarded cigarette into a ditch off Mackenzie rd not far from here but I was thinking that maybe you might want to just take a walk up to those fields that were burnt and have a look.
Or ask the fire dept if they know the cause of that fire. Interesting. Fire was basically on Lakha Rd or Latta Rd (Lakha turns in Latta after a little ways)but way way up the hill where there is no road. You can see the 2 large burnt patches if you are driving down Hwy 97 towards Kelowna just a little ways past airport look at the hills on left hand side before you reach the Old Vernon Rd set of lights.Or turn up Old Vernon Rd and look straight. Well I thought I would share this with you in case someone else may have witnessed that green light and then big grass fire the same night. oh, that light by the way was not a plane. I see planes all the time because I live quite close to airport. This did not move like a plane and it was not a helicopter( too dark for a chopper and it would not be out at 12 am) I would have heard it for sure because sound carries well out where I live.
Thank you to the witness for this report.
