UFO Sighting Report - USA
1995/1996 : Lynden, Washington
Lynden, Washington A Flash Contained Different Colors
Date: Approx: 1995 - 1996
Time: Approx: 9:00 p.m.
Dear Brian, After reading some of the reports on your website, I wanted to explain an experience I witnessed just south of the Vancouver, BC in Lynden, Washington. This occurred years ago and I wanted to know if anyone else had witnessed the same incident.
The sighting occurred about 10-8 years ago while I was on my way home from an after school event. I was heading West away from the town around 9:00pm at night on a main county road, with no other cars in sight. The sky was clear, expected for some large clouds in the North. I came up on 4-way stop at the same time as a truck, who was located to my left at the intersection. As I came to a stop out of the corner of my eye I noticed a strange light in the northern sky, lighting up the clouds in that area (located to my right). It seemed to appear over the east area of Greater Vancouver just over the US/Canadian border.
At first I thought the flash was lightening from a thunder storm, but the flash contained different colors (red,blue,green,yellow) and lasted longer then a lightening flash. The flashing looked like a battle reflecting in the sky. It lasted about 10-15 seconds. I sat there stunned, looking at the sky in disbelief. I looked over the truck to my left, and the driver had not moved, still sitting at the stop sign. I assumed that they too had witnessed what I had just saw. At the time, I was in such shock that I didn't know what to do, expect continue driving through the intersection down the road. The flash was so large and strange that at the time I was certain I would see it on the news or paper the next day. But, I never heard about the event again, and began to doubt what I saw, wondering why no one else had seen or spoke of it.
To this day, I still don't know what I say, but thoroughly regret not asking the truck driver if he/she to had also seen the lights. I would like to know if anyone else in Whatcom County, WA or in the Greater Vancouver area also witnessed this flashing event or any event similar to it. Sincerely.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
