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.
October 1987 : Langley, British Columbia
Langley, British Columbia A Silent Craft The Size Of A 747 Hovers
Date: October 1987
Hello, I have been reading your postings lately and want to tell you of an experience my son and I had in October 1987 in Langley, British Columbia.
It was late evening, clear skies, ( at dusk). I saw, and showed my son what appeared to be (2) headlights of a large aircraft travelling from the southwest towards us. What bothered me was that an airplane so big, travelling so low was definitely in trouble. As we watched for a minute or so it came directly to and above the elementary school across our street. Then it suddenly turned, no arching, nothing. Just a complete left turn. It was then the whole length of Langley elementary school, hovering about 200 feet above it. If not less. It hovered there briefly then sped off in a northwesterly direction and disappeared from sight instantly. This is the pattern of travel we saw \--/ ( not sure of the name of that angle, ( obtuse maybe). My son called the Langley radio station at the end of our block and they saw nothing from their windows which faced the school. No one else came outside and we knew then as we know now we are not crazy. Langley radio said they would call us if someone else reported a sighting. We never did hear anything.
Description of what we saw; still remember 19 yrs later and still wonder about.
Very large flying object, saucer shaped and dull greyish or silver in colour. The time of evening made that hard to distinguish. Very large white lights all around, with small red lights between each white one. The white lights were so bright it hurt the eyes to look, yet gave no reflection outside of the craft. The whole area should have been lighted up like a football field at night, no reflections. Also the most amazing thing is the absence of sound, not a purr, nothing. As it sped away to the northwest we were astounded at the speed and all the while we were thinking in terms of actual aircraft. Not until much later did we come to realize we saw something unexplainable. Also we were in an apartment building and how could we have been the only witnesses? A silent craft the size of a 747 hovers in the air across the street and only son and me saw it? I don't think so. Could there be someone out there who remembers this event, and if so I'd like to hear their comments on it. Thanks.
Thank you to the witness for an interesting report.
