Hi Brian, well not much to report really, just seemed a little strange, one of those things that doesn't seem to make sense! I was visiting a ranch property between Engen and Vanderhoof and had spent the evening with the owners. I'm not a resident of the area, I am from the Fraser Valley and was there on business.
I left around 8:30 PM well after dark, my car was facing West in front of the house from which there was a broad view as the property sits up on a knoll. While warming up the car I was looking ahead and noticed two lights side by side approximately one to two miles out that appeared to be at about 2000 feet in elevation!
The best description I can use on this is that it was similar to a larger aircraft on approach to a runway with those bright landing lights on, typically one on each wing! These lights however weren't as bright, more of a dull light, but definitely as big or bigger then those used on aircraft. They were also spread apart, very much like they would be if attached to airplane wings.
Now what was particularly odd here, is that these lights or this object was not moving, it was not getting closer, it was not getting father away, no movement in any direction, it was stationary! I continued viewing and wondering while warming up the car, and then departed for Vanderhoof, I glanced over my shoulder going down the driveway, southward and it was still there!
I wondered some what later if perhaps there was a mountain out there with a structure upon it, but having viewed this property throughout the day and the area in general, I'm pretty certain this was not the case and what I saw definitely was in the sky.
Something else that caught my eye, was an area on the ground where there was a bright orange glow occurring, this was further west then the object, and slightly further North than the object. At the time I assumed that this was a ground installation with flood lighting like a green house operation or something similar. This was a very robust amount of orange light however, possibly a large fire of some sort!
I'm kicking myself a little, because I had my digital camera with zoom lens beside me in the car, never even occurred to me at the time. That's about it, any questions, feel free!
Thank you to the witness for their sighting report.
