Powell River, British Columbia Bright Blue Fireball Sighting

Date: July 29, 2002
Time: Approx: 11:30 p.m

Message: I saw a fireball on July 29/2002 passing over Texada Island travelling north. This was not something falling from the sky, it seemed to follow the horizon travelling faster than an airplane. It was bright blue in color, and by its trajectory, I figured it would have landed in the ocean near Lund. I was surprised to see your article of people in Sayward sighting this same fireball so far north of here (Powell River).

Hi again

To clarify, I am in Powell River, and my house looks out to the west across the Straight of Georgia to the Vancouver Island community of Courtenay and Comox, with Texada Island (northern tip) approx. 1/4 of the way out. It was about 11:30 p.m. when my wife and I were watching T.V. I glanced out the window and saw a bright blue ball of light to the south-west travelling north along the horizon over Texada island. Yes, the blue fireball had a tail with a greenish tinge. I called my wife (name removed) to look out the window as the object proceeded north. We were able to watch for maybe 10 to 15 seconds. There were no aircraft in the area that we were aware of. It was a very clear night.

Thank you to the witness for this report.
