August 25th 2001

Name: Sally

Location: A few kilometres south of 70 mile house, british columbia

Date: 08/25/01 just around dusk, between 8:30 and 9:00 p.m.

Approach Direction: It came from the west going east

Departure Direction: It came from the west going east

Witness Direction: We were driving north towards 100 mile house

Description: I first noticed it and had said to the other passengers, "look there's a meteor" and we stared at this huge white fireball with a long tail on it. As we watched, it went from a white to a red then it turned brown then black as it fell behind the tree line.

Color/Shape: It seemed like as it was steaking across the sky that it was burning out as it was coming through the earths atmosphere. That is why the color of it changed from white to black

Height & Speed: I'm not sure on the speed of it but it sure seemed awfully fast and it seemed pretty big. Maybe the size of a small car. We did watch it for about 15 to 20 seconds.

TV/Radio/Press: I don't believe it was reported on the t.v. or radio.

Follow-up Report from Brian Vike:

Dear Brian,

Thankyou for responding to my sighting. I'll try and answer all of your questions the best I can. As for a tail behind it, I wouldn't say it was like a jet but there was a tail but not very long. I don't recall seeing sparks. I do feel it hit the ground soon after going over the tree line because of how close it looked to us. I also don't recall hearing any sound because, I guess, we were driving in our car. I do remember as it cooled and changed color, I noticed it seemed pitted-not round but a dented oval shape. Kind of like that white meteor that it shows at the beginning of Voyager(Startrek) but a different color. Also it is hard to judge the amount of time we saw it for. Maybe it was even only 10 seconds. It just seemed like we were watching it for quite a while. It was nothing like seeing a shooting star at night. I hope I answered all of your questions.

Sincerely Sally

p.s. There were 2 other people with me who witnessed it as well.
