Vernon, B.C. - Over Lake Okanagan

Date: Varies
Time: Varies

Hello Brian

I am updating further on my reported sightings of last week. I am seeing the first ones around 10:30 pm. in the same area of the western sky. approx. 45 degrees above the horizon. They "appear " to be somewhere high over the Lake Okanagan and already moving toward the north. They are at or above cloud level. They move at small plane speed. The gold globes brighten uniformly to look like "Jupiter" and one continues to fly low over Vernon from the west toward the south east, still bright.

On Friday night it was below cloud level. On Thursday night May 20 one gold globe (looking like a dim street light) flew to the north in the small plane lanes over the lake. The gold globes, about the size of a large pin head, are flying overhead routinely in either north or south direction. They turn orange before they dim and vanish.

The strobes I am learning are different from the globes. They too appear from the same area of the sky when I notice them first. They strobe like fireflys in the sky which means that every few miles a bright flash can be seen. It only happens maybe four times max. They also are the ones with the bright spikey light as on Thursday I saw a mix of spikey light, flashing color light and strobing, of something flying low toward the north. I will keep you posted.

(I don't know if you want to post this one below but it does seem coincidental especially with the sightings and what happened in Trail.) On Friday night I saw a huge flash from the Kelowna way as the southwestern sky lit up uniformly. I waited for the thunder but heard nothing. As it turned out Kelowna had a blackout and they were saying on the news how weird it was for lightning to hit the main connecter conjunction ( I think they said twice). It took a while to get power back on line before the hockey game could continue.

Take care Brian.

Thank you to the person for the report.
