Victoria, B.C. - High Flying Unusual Object

Date: June 19, 2004
Time: 3:00 - 3:05 p.m.

Today, June 23, 2004 I took a telephone call from a nice lady. She wanted to make a sighting report over what she witnessed on June 19, 2004 at 3:00 - 3:05 p.m. The witness was standing waiting for a city bus when she spotted something unusual flying at a high altitude. The woman pointed the object out to another lady who was also waiting for the bus. As hard as it was to see due to how high it was, the lady felt it was kind of strange looking.

Why the witness called was due to another report which took place over Vancouver, B.C. on June 19, 2004 which came from a gentleman who reported a paper airplane type of object.

The lady said she wished she had a pair binoculars with her so she would have been able to have a better look at the object. The witness explained that what she observed was a slow moving craft traveling from the north to the south and it was high overhead. She had looked away briefly then trained her eyes on it again. It was a beautiful sunny day, not a cloud in the sky. While watching this object she turned to a bystander and asked her was she thought, the bystander said she didn't know, but whatever it was had no wings and didn't appear to be a plane or helicopter. As they both watched the object finally flew directly overhead and they still weren't able to say for any certainty what it was. The witness who called said the object appeared as if it was changing shape, but once again it was high up. There was a little red coloring on it and a white glow coming off it. The woman wondered if this sighting had been at night, would this object be possibly glowing? The lady also said that the object "may" have been at the altitude of a Jet Airliner. (an approx: idea of the height). She added that no contrail was seen following the object. She admits that the other sighting out of Vancouver the fellow reported for June 19 may have been different, she still thought it important to report what she saw because there might be a connection between the two.

After the lady arrived home she called CHEX Television and talked to one of the news people and asked him if anyone had reported seeing this strange object. He said no other calls had come into the newsroom. The following day the lady called the local airport to enquire about what she had seen .... and was told by the tower that they had no calls about the sighting and if the object was that high up they would not have tracked it as the tower only keeps track of the lower airspace.

I would like to thank the witness for calling in her report.
