Burnaby, B. C. Ball Of White Light Maneuvering In The Clouds

Date: August 30, 2003
Time: Approx: 9:30 p.m.

Dear Mr. Vike,

My name is (removed) and I live in Burnaby on the south slope facing the pacific. It was August 30th 2003 at about 9:30 p.m. and my husband and I were barbecuing on our back patio. It was a beautiful summer night. Not a cloud in the sky, except for some which were high in the sky and over the ocean, I'd say southwest. Actually, we would have thought nothing of the clouds but then we noticed there was a small ball of white light moving around in the clouds. It was moving every which way it felt. But it never left the cloud cover. We both believe in UFOs, etc. but we were both trying to logically explain what we were seeing to each other. Like, is it a beam of light coming from Richmond or from the PNE, like a giant spotlight? No, because there was no beam of light coming from the ground. We kept on trying to figure it out as an earthly explanation.

But neither of us at the time said anything to each other that it may be a UFO. Anyways, we went inside to eat, not really thinking anything of it. We actually forgot about it. We went back outside about an hour later to look at the stars, etc. Then we noticed it was still there, in the exact same location in the sky. By now we were both thinking "UFO"! This time we watched it very carefully and notice that it would fade out of one area of the cloud and before the fade was gone it was already in the different area of the cloud. Like it was moving so fast and the light was slower than the object. We never actually saw any craft, just the ball of light moving around. We watched it for about 1/2 hour. Then next thing we knew, it had just disappeared at about 11:30 p.m.. The clouds we still there but the light was gone. Then all of a sudden, right above our heads, it seemed to be right over our house but super far in the sky we saw about 8 - 10 separate white streaks of lights, milliseconds apart traveling every which way. Then we freaked! Ever since then, every time I go on my patio at night, I think of the amazing spectacle we saw that night. I hope this helps you with your research.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
