August 3rd 2002

Houston, British Columbia

Date: August 3, 2002 (date could have fallen between the 3rd & 6th)
Time: approx: 11:45 p.m.

Since I am heading to visit my dad in Langley, B.C., I figured I had better get what hair I have left cut. I sat down in the barber shop waiting my turn, which wasn't a very long wait. The Barber asked me how things were going, so I filled her in on a few things about what has been going on here in the north, she mentioned she seen my articles in the newspaper which made her think to tell me of what her, and her husband had seen on August 3, 2002.

The couple live 2 kilometers south off Highway #16 on a road which is called Bold Road. I use to have a small parcel of land on the same road, so I know the area well. She went on to tell me they had been sitting outside and her husband caught sight of an "extremely large" white colored ball of light, which was traveling slowly in a northerly direction coming from the Morice Valley area. He told his wife to look quickly as he wanted her to see the object. The witness first thought it may have been a aircraft with landing lights on. But within a second or two he soon ruled this out due to the size of it. Both witnesses said it was brighter than the moon, and was approx: half the size. I asked if they could give me a rough idea to how high this object was, they both guessed it could have been around 4,000 or so. They got the estimation on the altitude from looking at Morice Mountain which is only a few miles behind their property and can easily be seen as the mountain runs above timberline.

Both of these folks went on the say while the object was almost straight over head from their position, it changed direction "quickly" (a sharp turn) to an easterly direction and continued along it's path until it was out of view due to all the trees in the area. The whole event last approx: 20 to 25 seconds.

Thank you to the witnesses for their report.
