Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO.
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.
September 22nd 2006 : Vancouver, British Columbia
Over Greater Vancouver Area Object Hovering Over Vancouver, B.C.
Date: September 22, 2006
Time: 2:30-3:00 a.m.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: ?
Shape of objects: Orbs
Full Description of event/sighting: We had decided to climb a mountain in North Vancouver. From that location you can clearly see over the greater Vancouver area, all the way to Tsawwassen and can oversee Boundary Bay. We spotted something hovering over the city (Looked like it was over Vancouver itself) for a few seconds, and I decided to try to take a picture of it. By the time I went to take the picture, the round object we saw had vanished. In the pictures that I took at that time I did not see anything unusual. When we got home and looked over some of the other pictures we took, we happened to notice other round objects. While taking these pictures, neither of us saw anything. Two of these pictures were taken in short succession of each other, one was taken at 2:56:00 and the other at 2:56:01.
These pictures imply that a round object moved quite a far distance in a very short period of time. The object appears in these pictures as if it appears out of thin air. The object in the second picture appears blurry, even though the shutter speed on the camera was 1/800 th of a second. For this shutter speed, something would have to be traveling very fast in order to be blurred.
I will attach photographs via email. I would welcome anyone to provide a rational explanation for these pictures.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
