Vernon, B.C. - Sky Watching Objects

Date: June 16, 2004
Time: 11:45 pm

Hello Brian

I have been out every night between the hours of 10:30 pm and 12:30 a.m. watching the skies. I have seen every night a gold globe brighten to white at least once a night. It appears in different parts of the sky and lately it has been appearing large and white as it comes from the south sky at 3500 feet before it dims. There were three occurrences of brightening last night at low altitudes. Two in the west, and one in the south. Last night at 11:45 there were four globes (approx 10-15 seconds behind each other) coming from the south and within a short distance ascended to satellite height (except for the last one which went behind a small cloud) and vanished in the same part of the sky marked by the triangle formation above Jupiter. When the last one was out of sight I saw a gold yellow streak about four inches long and as thin as a hair,in the sky heading toward the WNW horizon at 85 degrees or like a plane does as it approaches the horizon looking at it from a distance. The streak lasted less than half a second from appearing to disappearing suggesting that whatever is at the front of it is moving at a phenomenal speed.

I have seen these streaks about five times and all heading down to the horizon. They move so fast that I was at first not sure if I was actually seeing them. I ruled out light reflecting through spider webs, eye lashes and hair in front of my eyes. They seem to move faster than a meteorite!!! as the speed accelerates, and it is less than a half second to catch it.

Just after the streak in the west a globe came through the cloud and brightened. It was over the airport around 4000 ft. It vanished too.I stayed outside for an hour after for more,but I saw nothing else. I was awake all night I was so awe struck, contemplating the speed of whatever was in front of that streak,and the chance to see it in conjunction of seeing the globes ascend to "satellite" height before it happened. It was phenomenal. May be others have seen these streaks and first thought " meteorite,.. but it seems faster"

Take care, I am still blown away Brian.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
