UFO SIGHTING REPORT
May 19th 2004
Trail, British Columbia
Date: May 19, 2004
Time: 9:52 p.m.
I live in Trail B.C. It is Wednesday, May 19th, 2004. I was driving home alone from our local theatre along Highway 3B going south. I was not too far from home and I noticed that a bright light was coming through my passenger window. I looked out the window to the sky and saw the most amazing "craft". There were no vehicles directly behind me so I drove very slowly. What I saw was a huge craft in the shape of a V hovering very low in the sky. There were three lights on each "wing" of the V rotating rapidly in circles and creating bright white lights. There were no colours at all in these lights. There was also a very bright light on the "nose" of this craft. This thing was absolutely huge. My heart was racing as I tried to explain to myself a scientific reason why it was there. I could not pull my car over so I decided to get home as quickly as possible as I was almost home. I watched in the rear view mirror but could not see anything. I pulled into my driveway and ran to my deck as quickly as possible. This "thing" should have still been in the sky but was nowhere to be seen. It was incredible. Has anyone else in this area seen anything like this?
Additional information provided by the witness:
I am a (deleted by HBCC UFO). We had a storm so bad the power went out at approx. 4:45. We had to stay a little late in hopes that the power would come back on. We had an incredible downpour of rain and in the southeast towards the Wash. border a fire started. We had power on the West side of Trail but not on the East (divided by a river) I decided to go see the local movie because there was power on that side of the river. I'm not sure about the moon as it was very overcast. I drove my friend home after the movie and......
On my way home travelling alone East on Highway 3B, my car "lit up". I looked out the passenger window to the south and saw a "huge craft" in the shape of a V. There were three bright white lights on each "wing" of this craft. There seemed to be rotating extremely fast lights within the lights. (like the chasing lights you would see on a Christmas tree) There did not seem to be a body to this craft like a plane with passengers would have but rather just a V. The "nose" of the craft also had a bright light and the lights were beaming upward but the glow so intense that this is why the light shone in my car. It was not a beam of light but rather a brightness.
This thing was hovering very low and very slowly. I am not good with distance but my husband says the way I described it, he would guess approx 100 metres high.
Keep in mind I was driving. the speed limit was 50 km but I could slow almost to a stop as I had time to look in my rear view mirror and there were no cars behind me. I wanted to pull the car over and take a closer look but this is a main highway and there was a guard rail to my right. I had time to turn my music off - I heard no sound although I did not think to roll my windows down. The size was that of a large plane and it appeared to be grey or silver in colour. I am not sure because the white lights were so intense. There was no colour to any of the lights.
I remember telling myself to pay attention to detail. This is very hard to do when the mind is confused and trying to reason with what the eyes are witnessing. Because I couldn't stop I decided to go a bit above the speed limit and get home as quickly as possible. This sighting was VERY close to where I live so it was a matter of travelling up the road a bit and turning south (right) into my neighbourhood. I got out of my car ran to our deck and looked in the direction of the sighting but saw nothing.
We do live by and the sighting was by our Canadian Armoury site.
I did not have any "missing time event" I was so amazed by this sighting though and so confused by it that I had to take a sleeping pill to calm me down to be able to sleep. I had some dreams in regard to what I saw but nothing I would consider out of the ordinary.
I can't think of anything else to tell you. Today I am still rather shaken and trying to apply logic but this thing was so large and hovering so low. I don't know what is capable of doing this.
Yes you can speak about it with Wayne on KBS. I am curious to find out if there is anyone else who may have seen this. It was hovering above an area where there are quite a few homes so you would think somebody should have.
By the way, (deleted) e-mailed me and said he must have just missed it. I think he was also at the movie and I know he would have travelled home in the same direction as I did.
Hopefully I've answered all of your questions. I am now a true believer that "something is going on out there."
I realized I missed answering a couple of your questions. We live near two airports. The main Castlegar airport approx 30 km north. We also have a local airfield approx 8 km southeast. I didn't see any other planes or aircraft in our area.
Take care Brian. Thank you for listening.
Thank you to the person for the report.
