Burnaby, British Columbia Object Thought To Be A Plane Crashing

Date: August 2000
Time: Evening

Hey, Brian, I talked to my girlfriend last night about the UFO she saw in Aug 2000 (the one she thought was a plane crashing). The thing that shocked her was the speed that it was traveling. She said it was moving much faster than an airplane. I tried to create a hypothesis of its trajectory. I think it came in either from the east or northeast at approx. 2,000 Ė 3,000 feet, quickly dropped to 1,000 Ė 1,500 ft. then zipped off either due west or northwest. She said that it basically appeared then was gone in an instant, but it didnít vanish, it just sped off at an incredible speed.

She said it didnít look like a plane, so when she said that it reminded her of maybe a plane plummeting to earth, It obviously changed its elevation rather quickly. A somewhat physics-defying maneuver, donít you think?

Thank you to the eyewitness for the report.
