July 31st 2006 : Kelowna, British Columbia
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Kelowna, British Columbia
Date: 07/31/2006 4:15 a.m.
Approach Direction: light was just suspended in the air and didn't do anything but float up.
Departure Direction: up
Witness Direction: north east
Description: I was woke up by my dog because he was barking. I looked out the window and saw a large bright light which was low in the sky. It was very large and was in the shape as a sphere. I ran to get the binoculars to get a better look and could see with the binoculars that there was also a light or beams coming from the top of the light. The light didn't do anything more than just float upwards into the sky and did this very slowly for I watched this until 5:30 a.m. It was light out at this time and was so far in the sky it looked like a star so I went back to bed. August 4,2006 our newspaper reported a crop circle in nearby Armstrong where a pilot had taken a picture of the crop circle and was first reported on July 31,2006.
The crop circle in the paper was the exact shape as the light had been.
Color/Shape: white light spherewith some sort of light coming from the top.
Height & Speed: first saw light was in front of black mountain not quite to the top then floated up.
TV/Radio/Press: yes I reported the light to the Kelowna daily courier and the t.v. station. neither said anyone else had seen a bright light. reported it august 2, the newspaper reported the crop circle auguat 4,2006.
Update from Brian Vike:
Well wrote a nice letter to this lady, I also attached a skychart to her email I sent. What she saw was either Venus or Mercury which came up in the north east portion of the sky at the time she stated. I informed her of what it was. I also attached the skychart for you as well for the date and time the lady gave in her report so you could have a look as well - Brian.
UFOINFO thanks Brian Vike for the follow-up.
[UFOINFO Note: The witness strongly disagrees with Brian - see below.]
Hi, I am writing to you again to ask why there is a "solved" beside my sighting. I can assure you that Venus or Mars is not in front of Black Mountain at 4:30 a.m. at any time of year. Dawn had already broken and even if this light had been as high as the stars I can assure you that there are not any stars visible at that time of day. Brian Vike sent me a chart of the stars I'm assuming because of the unusual amount of time I was able to see this ufo (over an hour) he assumed I was looking at Venus, but I made a point of getting up at 5:00a.m. 2 days later to make sure that I saw what I saw other wise Venus would have been in the same spot but Venus was not there nor was anything else. I told my family, a few friends and reported this light to the newspaper and radio station on July 31, I was unware that a crop circle had been spotted and reported on July 31 until it came out in the newspaper on August 4, 2006. I hardly think this was a coincidence and neither does Nancy Talbot who I have spoken to in lenght about this and she wrote a report for me with my photos and drawings. I would hope you would be responsible and not let the public think that this is solved. Thank you.
