UFO Sighting Report - Canada
September 3rd 2007 : Campbell River British Columbia
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Campbell River BC Canada
Date: 09/03/07 22:00 local time
Approach Direction: From the South
Departure Direction: To the East
Witness Direction: East
Description: Sitting at the fishing pier in Campbell River facing west we noticed an object that appeared to be a shooting star. The object was travelling in a northerly direction when it might a tight 90 degree turn to the west and travelled over us. It then made a U shaped turn, travelling at about half the speed of when it was first seen, and continued east out of sight. I've never seen anything like it, at first thinking that it was a shooting star, then after it turned once possibly a satellite, then after the U-turn knew it was soemthing else.
Color/Shape: had the appearance of a small ball of light, very dim since it was difficult to make out among the night sky except for the movement.
Height & Speed: Unknown, although we feel it was at a high altitude, over 30,000 feet.
Thanks for your time. The weather conditions were clear that night, we were on the pier to watch the sky that night. The entire event took approx. 5-7 seconds from the time I first saw it travel northbound, turn west, and U-turn to the east. There was no sound that was noticed, or lights that could be made out other than the pale orange/tan light of what I saw moving. I can draw up a diagram of the movement, it will take me a day or two to draw it out, scan and send it to you.
