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 30th 2006 : Houston, British Columbia
Houston, British Columbia Beam Of Light (Northern Lights)
Date: September 30, 2006
Time: 11:30 p.m.
HBCC UFO Research Note: Telephone calls started coming into me here at home over an unusual sighting that was taking place directly over Houston, British Columbia. Actually 4 calls came in. Between telephone calls I had gone outside to see, or hope to see what folks were reporting, and there it was, shinning brightly in the clear night sky.
Directly above the home was a beam of bright light running from the northwest across the sky towards the southeast. If I held up my fist at arms length the beam of light would have been slightly wider than my closed fist. The beam of light also had a slight arc to it and was a pale green in color.
I figured out pretty quickly what it was, which was the northern lights. But must admit, I could see why people thought it looked really unusual. Also looking to the north, towards the horizon of the mountain, there was a mist (sort of speak) of the same thing, a very light mist of very pale green which again was the northern lights.
But the beam that ran from horizon to horizon was the same width straight across the sky pretty much and extremely bright. The beam stayed in the same position for 20 to 30 minutes. Still the northern lights.
Thank you to all the people who called in.
