With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.

Full Description of event/sighting: Hi Brian, it seems to be getting busy around here. Was listening to my scanner and heard about several fires in dumpsters not to far from here. So I was looking over in that area to see if I could see anything.
All of a sudden a large orange light appeared near the highest peak on Heritage Mountain for a second I thought perhaps a tree on the mountain had burst into flames as it looked very similar to when they had the forest fire up there last summer. I started to reach for my binoculars then realized I had my camera sitting on the desk ready to go. As soon as I picked it up and turned on the power the orange light went out. I waited for a second to see if it would reappear, then scanned the area with my binoculars but could see nothing. I then decided to see if the camera would pick up anything. Right away I saw that multi colored star/light in almost the same spot I'd seen the orange light.
Then I switched on the infra red night sight and immediately saw the orange light right next to the multi colored star both appearing to be about the same size in the view finder. I zoomed on the pair of them and as the zoom increased the orange object began to take on a disk shaped appearance, as I increased the magnification the disk resolved into three smaller orange lights rapidly circling around the bigger main light. At times the smaller lights seemed to just jump from one side of the bigger object to the other. This went on for several minutes. I checked again with the binoculars but could only see the multi colored star. I noticed that last summer when the forest fire was burning, with my binoculars I would only see something when a tree went up and then I would see the bright flash but when I aimed my camera with the infra red night sight turned I could see over a dozen hot spots around that area and it would really flare up on the view finder when a tree when up and the opposite when the fire fighters hit the various spots with water.
I then decided to rewind the tape and view it on my TV but got distracted by some action taking place over on the roof of the Mall Parkade. Three older Teens appeared to be daring each other to climb over the railing and climb down the outside of the Parkade. Its five stories high at that point. One of the idiots actually climbed over and was doing stupid stunts, while showing off. I hit the record button on my camera and proceeded to phone Security. Before they could answer he gave it up and climbed back over the rail. I just felt sick inside thinking about how close he came to getting himself splattered all over the cement sidewalk down below. I felt even sicker a few moments later when I realized I'd taped right over that Orange light.
Its 00:10 and there is a large flashing red strobe light flying in circles over N. Surrey and Coquitlam. I checked with the binoculars and can plainly see it is Air one the RCMP chopper, just in case you get any reports. Damn that thing is quiet when he wants to be. Just turned off the red strobe and now is showing small green and white lights. He was circling for more than half and hour before disappearing.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
