UFO SIGHTING REPORT
November 24th 2004
Houston, British Columbia Numerous Objects Witness By Houston Residents
First Object Witnessed
Date: November 24, 2004
Time: 6:15 p.m.
On the evening of November 24, 2004, starting at 6:15 p.m. the sky came alive with numerous objects being witness over the small town of Houston, British Columbia. It was an exciting night to say the least as it has been very quiet in the Pacific Northwest of B.C. over 2004 compared with 2002 and 2003 when northwestern B.C. was almost the UFO capital of Canada due to the large amount of reported UFO sightings.
All of this changed as we made our way through 2004 with UFO sightings dropping off dramatically compared to the two previous years.
On Wednesday night things changed quickly. A close friend of ours had just dropped in for a visit when the telephone rang, I went and answered it. There was an excited lady on the other end who was about to start off the evening's chain of events. She and her husband were outside of their home which is located at the west end of town. She reported they both watched an extremely bright, fast moving light traveling over head from the west heading towards the east over top of Mount Harry Davis. They both were surprised at how fast the object traveled and both of them not hearing a sound coming from it. Also as the light moved across the sky it was seen dropping in altitude and then rising back up again and it did this over and over as it flew. The couple reported it to be traveling much faster than a low flying aircraft, but not as fast as a meteor. There was no tail or trail following behind the object as it moved through the night sky. The color was reported to be white, red and orange and due to the brilliance of the object no structure could be seen. Also due to a very still night the smoke from burning fire places and wood stoves at their location slightly hampered getting a good look at the object. (seeing any details).
As the bright object almost reached a point where the couple would have lost sight of it in the eastern sky, two other extremely bright lights sat stationary. As the original object was about to disappear the two other lights began to move at a high rate of speed moving in opposite direction and vanishing within seconds.
Both of the witness stood stunned at what they just saw and told me they had never seen anything like it before.
Houston, British Columbia Second Object Witnessed
Date: November 24, 2004
Time: 7:20 p.m.
Another phone call came in and the witnesses said at 7:20 p.m. they watched a craft with 5 lights on it fly southwest from the micro wave tower on top Mount Harry Davis and over top their home just off Highway #16 here in Houston, B.C.
Whatever the object was traveled at a high rate of speed not making a sound. The witnesses stressed the craft moved so fast they hadn't a chance to see any detail on it other than the lights.
Houston, British Columbia Third Object Witnessed
Date: November 24, 2004
Time: 7:40 p.m.
Seeing there were the two reports that had just came in, I decided to dress warm and go outside to watch the sky for myself. After about 15 minutes had past and not seeing anything, plus the outside temperatures were not warm at all I came back in and sat down in the living room with my wife and close friend. We had turned off some of the lights in our home and left the TV on as we sat chatting. The front room curtains were opened wide which gives me an excellent view of Mount Harry Davis.
As we all sat discussing and wondering what the objects might have been, I gave out a loud yell and ran to the living room window, followed by my wife and friend. There flying low over the mountain was a large, bright orange light which was dropping in altitude rapidly. As we all watched the objects seemed to change direction slightly and was easily viewed following the top contour of the mountain. (One reason we were able to see the outline of the mountain was due to the moon being so bright and lighting up all the surrounding areas). Eventually the object dropped down behind the mountain towards the northeast and disappeared. I am very comfortable saying what we saw at this time was not an aircraft, what ever it was has the three of us baffled.
Houston, British Columbia Fourth Thing Witnessed
Date: November 24, 2004
Time: 7:50 p.m.
HBCC UFO Research: Still with something happening this evening we all watched the skies just in case something else might take place. I would pace the floor back and forth, running to the telephone to inform some of my close friends as to what was happening in the area and some of my friends went outside to watch, just in case they were able to see something and to have them report back if they had.
I came back to the living room window and looked out, off to the right of the Micro Wave Tower on Mount Harry Davis I was able to see a bright white ray, or beam of light which shone upwards. I wasn't able to see what was causing this ray of light as the source of it was coming up from behind the mountain. ( I personally know that there are no roads behind the mountain, just trees, some lakes, etc.. Also keeping in mind the mountain has a fair bit of snow on it now and the temperatures at the time of all the sightings was down to minus 8 Celsius. With these condition, it is highly unlikely anyone would have been in the area behind the mountain playing around)
When seeing the ray of light, I started my way through the living room and was heading outside to be able to view this better, rather than through a window. As I got to the kitchen the telephone rang and I went and answered it. Both my wife and friend were watching the ray of light, which all of a sudden vanished.
Houston, British Columbia Fifth Object Witnessed
Date: November 24, 2004
Time: 8:00 p.m.
As I sat here on the telephone I suddenly heard my wife and friend give out a yell. I immediately hung the phone and ran out to see what they were going on about. Just ten minutes after the ray of light went out, or disappeared and now on the left side of the Micro Wave Tower on Mount Harry Davis a large, bright white light was observed shooting skyward from the back side of the mountain. My wife and friend said the light shot up in what appeared to be bursts and eventually disappeared. The light went to a high altitude before it was gone. I asked if they were able to see any kind of smoke trail following the light, and none was to be seen.
This pretty much was the end of the night's excitement as I sat in the dark for a few hours watching the mountain.
HBCC UFO Research Note: In past years, in 2002 and 2003 a large number of strange objects had been witnessed by Houston residents. Many of these sightings taking place over Mount Harry Davis. From Triangles, Boomerang shaped craft to lights zig zagging and some hovering over the tower emitting sparks. One interesting event took place at the base of the mountain and was witness by the entire family. Report pasted below to give an example of the strange things being seen over this mountain here in Houston, B.C.
Sample report Below:
Houston, British Columbia Frightening Encounter (Sighting, object hovering them moving up the side of Mount Harry Davis)
Date: December 8, 2003
Time: approx: 8:45 p.m.
I was stopped today in the mall and pulled off to the side. A lady who I know very well wanted to tell me about something she and her husband and two children witnessed on December 8, 2003 at approx: 8:45 p.m.
Her husband had just picked her up from a friends house and they arrived back home shortly after. They pulled into their long driveway only to see the two kids standing outside yelling and pointed towards the mountain behind their home. The husband stopped the car quickly and both parents jumped out in fear as they had no idea what was wrong, thinking the worst. They almost immediately noticed a white oval shaped object sitting stationary over the back of their property.
colored object. A slight and annoying hum could be heard coming from it. The Mother went over and grabbed the two children and went into the house with them, Dad followed close behind. They thought it would be safer than standing outside as they had no idea what is was they were looking at. Once inside the home, they proceeded to a back bedroom, closed the door behind them as not to allow any light from inside the home to give away where they were. (feeling frightened at this time)
But still curiosity was getting the best of them. So they watched the object, still sitting in the exact spot from when they first noted it. The family told me the trees which were below it were all lit up in a white light, and for a good distance around the area. After a total of approx: 4 minutes of watching this unusual craft, it slowly started to move. As it did so the witnesses claimed they could see sparks dropping off the bottom side of it. The sparks were reported to be a white in color. They told me that there was no quick moment to the object, it just rose up rather slowly and as it reached the top of the mountain this is where they lost sight of it. The craft did not blink out, they thought it just crossed over the top and maybe moved down the other side. They reported that whatever it was, was huge.
The husband told me it was not a helicopter, no way !! He said we were very close to this thing, and what noise it gave off was minimal, except for this consent humming sound. The husband also said area residents would have been blind not to see this as it was so bright and large in size.
HBCC UFO Note: After I talked with the witness in the mall I made arrangements and did go to visit the whole family earlier today. I sat with all of them for a long period of time and I can say this for certain. I believe they saw something really strange as everyone was still very excited over what they saw that evening. I also will be going back tomorrow to look around the area where this object was reported to be hovering.
I also will be doing a live interview with CFBV/BVLD radio this coming Monday and I am hoping that folks in the listening area will come forward to report maybe seeing some of these strange sights that took place on November 24, 2004 here in Houston, B.C. I am still investigating the reported sightings.
Thank you to all the witnesses for their reports.
