A gentleman called me from Prince George, British Columbia tonight (November 9, 2003) to report a sighting he and his wife had while coming back from Penticton, B.C. On October 26, 2003 while traveling along highway 97 just south of Stoner, B.C., heading north the couple saw what they first thought was a very large aircraft. The fellow told me it looked like an aircraft that would have been coming in for a landing at an airport with the landing lights on. The light they witnessed was extremely bright and again large in size. The object was to their right and a head of them at this point. Also the object was traveling over top of the trees. They soon figured out that what they were observing was not a normal aircraft at all due to it's size, brightness and how low it was flying. The witness told me they were traveling at approx: 100 kilometers an hour and they were catching up to this thing. He also mentioned, it was unlikely at the speed he was traveling that they would have slowly crept up closer to it if it had of been a plane.

Still thinking the fellow wondered, could it possibly be a helicopter as it did seem to hover for a spit second or two then started moving once again. Being so low, they did lose sight of it briefly due to the trees blocking their view. Once the witnesses got to a crest of the hill and seeing there was a clearing they spotted the object again. At this point it was just underneath the cloud cover. The witnesses estimated the cloud ceiling to be at approx: 8,000 feet or close. The object, still traveling slowly, flying just below the clouds and basically straight across from them when the light just disappeared, then reappeared shortly there after and then finally vanished. The witness mentioned that the highway had a lot of traffic on it and many others driving would have noticed the object. It was hard not to see it due to the intensity of the light.

I will be checking this out Monday morning to see if I can dig anything up on this case.

Thank you to both witnesses for their report.
