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 : Ucluelet Vancouver Island, British Columbia
Ucluelet Vancouver Island, British Columbia Bright Object With Lights
Date: September 29, 2006
HBCC UFO Research received a telephone call on Sunday, September 30, 2006 from a gentleman who resides in Ucluelet on Vancouver Island here in British Columbia. The man went on to explain that he has been observing, with a friend at times a strange ball of light which seems to appear and hang around a while, then disappears. The sightings of the strange object has taken place over the summer and continuing off and on.
The fellow explained that he works the graveyard shift and on his days off he likes to go outside and observe the night sky, as he enjoys stargazing. The man told me the area is dark, no bright city lights to block out the night sky, which gives him a wonderful view of everything above.
He went on and told me he was looking towards one of the local mountains which has a radar tower (dome) on it. Next to this mountain is another and he has been watching a bright round object for a period of time over the summer. Now I should point out, that whatever the fellow is watching, is there sometimes, and on other nights not visible at all. The man thought it may have been a bright star low on the horizon and just over top the mountain. But it appears that this is not the case.
I should also point out that the witness, during daylight hours took a good look at the mountain where he had been seeing this bright object. He states there was nothing there, such as a tower with lights, or anything else that would account for this unusual light. Also an important to mention is that this bright object does appear in different parts of the sky. Also it moves certainly faster than watching a planet or the stars, which can be observed by the witness holding up his hand to gauge the objects speed. A blinking or strobing red and green lights could be viewed on this object as well at the top of it. On another day watching this light, a blinking or strobing red and green lights could be seen going around the ball shaped object. The object would also stay in the area for a good period of time.
I was told he checked out numerous ideas, from the Space Station to planets to stars and nothing seemed to fit. So the two witnesses to this are baffled as to what this might be.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
