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 29th 2006 : North Surrey, British Columbia
North Surrey, British Columbia A Bright White Fireball Or Meteorite
Date: September 29, 2006
Time: 7:52 p.m.
Location of Sighting: Passing over North Surrey heading NNW direction.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Appeared to be oval.
Full Description of event/sighting: Hi Brian if you were looking out and up you may have seen this as it was heading roughly in your direction.
The sky over the lower mainland is clear at the moment and the temperature feels like it is dropping fast. I was just sitting here at my desk absentmindedly scanning the sky and looking at all the lights when at bright white fireball or meteorite suddenly appeared in the sky lighting up all the immediate area. For a second I thought due to its appearance it might be fireworks as it had a long white tail of fire behind it and was traveling slowly compared to most meteorites though still much faster then satellites or planes. The object itself appeared to be oval in shape and glowed white hot with a sort of white halo all around it. It appeared to burn out approx:. 20 degrees above the horizon. I probably had it in view for two to three seconds.
Brian it was absolutely beautiful, I just hope you were looking up at that time. My camera broke last week and who knows when I will be able to get it fixed. Went to change the tape and the tape refused to go back in. I pulled the tape and looked inside and saw several parts sliding around inside jamming the mechanism. Said parts are now in an envelope until such time as I can get it repaired.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
