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.

Invermere, B.C. Several Dark Circular Shapes Making Unusual Aerial Acrobatics
Date: September 24, 2006
Time: 12:00 - 1:00 a.m.
Dear Mr. Vike: I was interested to read your story about UFO sightings at Castlegar BC. My son telephoned me last weekend about a similar experience that same night, outside of Invermere BC. He and some friends went up in the mountains outside of Invermere, to get a better view of the Aurora Borealis that was happening that night. They reported seeing several dark circular shapes, flying in formations, and performing unusual aerial acrobatics. If you are interested in more details, I will have him contact you.
My dad sent you an email the other day regarding objects I saw.
On September 24, 2006 at 12:00-1:00 am, my friends and I went into a highpoint of a field just outside of Invermere, B.C. to watch the aurora borealis over the Rockies. One of us noticed silhouettes of multiple uniformly shaped ovals which at first appeared far away but moved closer towards the town and seemed to make formations. At some points a few would disappear, but then we saw where others seemed to re-appear at a different point in the horizon.
This continued for a good 10 minutes when one of my friends brought out a didgeridoo, one of those native Australian musical instruments and played loudly and pointing right in the direction of the dark shapes (at this point they seemed to be much closer as they were much greater in size). Almost instantly one appeared much closer than the others and was much more circular as you would imagine looking underneath instead of to the side. My friend continued to play, and put on electronic music, when 3 more came above us. There were no lights and we could not make out any details of what it was, just that they were big and round, but more flat when looking from the side, like what I would imagine a silhouette of a flying saucer to look like.
Another thing is we would have never seen them if the northern lights weren't going on as it was for this that we could see the silhouettes in the night sky. When they disappeared they could have very well have been in another point in the sky and we wouldn't have been able to see them. The whole experience lasted about 25 minutes.
Thank you to the witness for the fascinating report.
