UFO Sighting Report - Canada
January 21st 2008 : Vancouver International Airport (YVR), British Columbia
Appeared To Be Over YVR, British Columbia UFO Makes An Abrupt Turn
Date: January 21, 2008
Location of Sighting: West of my location, appeared to be over YVR.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Undetermined.
Full Description of event/sighting: Stepped out onto my deck for a few minutes to check the sky. Observed a plane which had just taken off from YVR. Sky is exceptionally clear for around here. I was looking around at all the stars when a bright flash caught my attention. I observed an object comparable in brightness to a Magnesium flare drop almost vertically from approx: 45 degrees above the horizon to approx: 5 to 10 degrees at which point it made an abrupt right angle turn and shot off horizontally towards the wnw, vanishing within seconds. The plane was still in sight about mid point between me and the airport. The object was brighter than the landing light and appeared to be about ten times as big. There was no trail or sound. Duration of sighting, seconds.
Until it made the abrupt turn I thought I was looking at an unusually large meteorite.
Wish it was warmer I'd like to sit out there for little while and see if anything else shows up. Currently 0 degrees Cel.
Thank you to the witness for a interesting sighting report.
