UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Grand Forks, BC, Canada
Date: August 01 1985
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Spherical
Weather Conditions: Clear, twilight
Description: Sitting outdoors reading in the evening's last light. Heard an object that sounded like a "blimp" approaching from the east. (my partner said the pitch wasn't right, but to my ear it sounded like one and the speed was about right) Tall trees in that direction so we could not see object until it was within a few hundred feet. It looked like a glowing light--blue green in color. We could not see the object creating the light. The light was a perfect sphere. It traveled a few dozen feet across our property and hovered 30 - 60 seconds. The forest gave way to ranch land west of us. The object shot without sound or sonic boom to the horizon leaving behind only a "tracer" -- like a sparkler at US 4th of July.
The exact date above is just to satisfy your database requirements. I am sorry, but after so many years, I only remember that it was the summer of '85. There were many forest fires burning, and the Gypsophelia flower was being harvested.
TV/Radio: The Canadian newsman said something to the effect that "for those of you who spotted those lights in the sky last night, the US Airforce reports they had a misfired missle last evening."
