Description: On a Camping trip up Nanaimo River, just below 1st Lake My cousin, Myself and a buddy of ours decided to go for a walk away from the hubbub of our campsite where the rest of our group stayed. We walked for a spell but could still faintly hear our group and decided to smoke a joint on the path where we were, when a light from above lit up the area around us ( approx 20 feet in diameter ).
The light was intensely bright but no sound could be heard ( the camp could still be heard behind us but nothing from the direction of the light.) We stood there in awe/terror until the light went out and the object moved away. I say object because because we could not distinguish anything other than a large dark spot above the trees that blocked out the stars behind it. We tried to rationalize what it may have been but knew it wasn't an airplane or helicopter...unless there was secret flying machines that could hover and then fly with out making sound.
The three of us sat there for a while and decided not to say anything to our friends as we felt they would not have believed us. A couple hours later I noticed a couple of the girls from our group had a spooked look to them so I sat by them and overheard them talking about a similar occurrence. I had my cousin take one of them away and tell her our version while I sat and listened to the other girls. She described an almost identical event about the same time frame, closer to the river but just south of where we were...the same direction the object went after leaving us.
I have held this memory for close to 20 years speaking about it to very few people for fear of ridicule, but the memory is solid in my head. I remember it more clearly than my wedding or the birth of my son, I find that very strange and am very happy to have just discovered this website so that I may share it with you.
