I had a telephone call from a couple who reside in Nelson, B.C. who witnessed an odd sight. They report that while traveling north along the Kootenay River on highway 3A they saw what appeared to be an egg shaped object which sat stationary over the River. Around the center of it was a broken ring of blue lights, they said there was a good number of these lights which were very bright and not flashing. The witnesses guessed the object was at an altitude of about 500 to 600 feet above the river. The husband who was driving wanted to stop to investigate this unusual sight, but due to his wife being frighten they kept moving but at a slower pace as he was certainly curious to know what this was. A short distance down the highway his wife looked behind to see if it was still there, but she could not see any thing. They said whatever it was had disappeared or turned out it's lights. The husband estimates that the object was 40 to 50 feet in length at the most. They heard no sound, but they told me the windows were rolled up in their vehicle and the radio on. One other thing they commented on, the object having a completely smooth surface to it, or at least the areas they could see clearly.

The husband said he is kicking himself now that he didn't stop to have a good look at the object.

Thank you to the witnesses for their report.
