UFO Sighting Report - Canada
Date Unknown : Bowen Island, British Columbia
I happened to have read your piece for May 16, '09, and have been previously unaware of your research.
This may be of interest...
A few years back, there were a few triangular lights (3 arranged in a triangle) "parked" over some islands just west of Bowen Island B.C. It was around 10:00 on a Friday evening. We were observing them with a telescope as my friends' house is on the west side of Bowen and they regularly look at ships with their living room tripod/telescope.
We first heard what we thought were gun shots and thought nothing of it. ( I later realised when watching a space shuttle land in Florida and heard it breaking the sound barrier, that the "gunshots" I heard were exactly like the sound the shuttle made).
Anyway we saw these triangular lights and there was a reflection in the water about 100 feet below. There were a few red lights moving about in the background. At first I figured it was the light of the top of a mast of a ship, but there was no shadow of a ship and the bow would have had to be facing directly at us. They were distinctly triangular in shape.
These lights were present for about an hour. The islands were they were located are small and uninhabited with no roads. At one point, while looking through the telescope, the light flashed very brightly and I had to back off the telescope. Perhaps the reflection of the telescope lens was "noticed" as the house was otherwise dark on a forested slope along the cliffs of Bowen Island. That was a little scary and gave me goose bumps.
...since reading your article, I have never otherwise read of any reported "triangular lights".
The next day I spoke with the air traffic control of Vancouver Int'l airport, and they told me that they occasionally get "ghost blips". -- something on radar that shows up, then disappears. I also spoke with the Canadian Naval Station in Esquimalt and they said there were no manoeuvres in the area at that time.
...thought this may be of interest to you, for what it's worth.
