October 17th 2002

Time: approx: 8:30 p.m.

I receive word from a friend, that he had heard about a sighting which took place on Hungry Hill which is approx: 15 Miles West of Houston, B.C. An older couple were on their way home to Topley, B.C. (which is approx: 13 miles east of Houston) from shopping in Smithers, B.C. . They were coming up Hungry Hill (which is a long steep grade) when one of the witnesses saw a green/red flashing. She said it would flash from red to green, and then green to red according to this lady. She said to her husband, who was driving their car, do you see what I see ? He said yes I do !

(HBCC UFO Note: The witness mentioned to me, that she told her husband we had better not tell anyone as they would think we were crazy).

They both said the object moved slowly above the tree line near the top of the hill, she said it would stop, hover, and continue moving slowly, then disappear. As they drove along the object reappeared, still just above the tree tops, and then moved across the highway in front of them and again came to a complete stop. At this point they stopped their car and watched the strange object, moving back and forth across the highway still just above tree top level. Before the object left the location, it started trailing "sparkly stuff" behind it, which shot out approx: 100 to 200 feet and left in a northwesterly direction which would have been towards Grouse Mountain. The object was circular in shape, or what they could see from the flashing of the lights.

Both witnesses said there was no noise, or interference on the radio, they said they heard no noise what so ever. (HBCC UFO Note: The two folks who watched this, and mentioned to me they could not hear any sounds from the object, this could have been due to them driving along in their car with the radio on. But after they pulled over, the husband did get out of the vehicle and still reported no sound from it. He explained, whatever it was, was very close, just a head of them and kept crossing the highway).

Both witnesses said the object was approx: the size of the old satellite dishes, (C - Band, which is approx: 10 to 12 feet in diameter. They still use this C - Band system and this is why they used this to determine a size for it).

Before I finished the conversation with them, they both stressed that the object would move back and forth across the highway, and when it reached either side, it stopped and hovered for a couple seconds, and then fly back across the highway to the other side. This whole process took about 10 minutes before it left the area and when leaving, it moved very quickly.

Take care

Hungry Hill - 15 Miles West of Houston, British Columbia

Date: October 8, 2002
Time: 9:45 p.m.

Wedge shaped object.

A resident from Telkwa, British Columbia was heading to work (graveyard shift) in Houston, B.C. at one of our local sawmills when he spotted, in his words. "An object shaped like a piece of pie" ! He also said it had three white lights at each of the corners, or "fins" as he put it. The witness also said he lives under the flight path for the Smithers airport, and had not ever seen an object of this type or shape fly over head in the past, so seeing this was very unusual. When his eyes caught it he turned into a pull out area, or rest spot they have at the top of Hungry Hill to watch it, mainly to see what it was going to do, or to try to figure out what it was he was watching.

He also said the object sat and hovered in one place approx: 200 feet up from the base of Grouse Mountain and did not make a sound that he could hear. He was stopped at this time, out of his vehicle, standing watching what ever this was. He also mentioned that it looked as if the object was tucked in around a farm which was in the valley just a little north west of his location. I asked him what color it was, he said "black. The witness said he could clearly see the silhouette of it, this is why he was so sure of what shape it was. I asked if he had some kind of idea how large this craft was, he came back with it being approx: 40 feet across. He watched the object move off in a westerly direction towards Quick and Telkwa, B.C. The witness said he had enough, as it bothered him and got back into his vehicle and got out of the area quickly.

HBCC UFO Note: I am planning to go and talk to some of the farmers/ranchers in the area where this was seen, just in case they had noticed anything strange around the area on the date given above. With so much going on in this area, I might get lucky and come up with a different report. I will keep everyone posted.
