Drumheller, Alberta Bright Light After Thunderstorm

Date: July 19, 2004
Time: Approx: 10:00 p.m.

A close friend of mind who resides in Houston, B.C. rang me up and said he had a story for me and did I want to hear it. I said yes of course so the fellow came up to our home and we sat and he told me what the two of them saw while on holiday in Drumheller, Alberta.

The couple both had some time off from work and had made plans to drive to Saskatchewan for a quick visit. After their stay was over they started back and were driving through the province of Alberta taking in a few of the sights. At one point the skies were turning dark from the cloud cover so they decided to stay at the small community of Drumheller, Alberta. They pulled into a campground to get a spot to stay for the night then went and looked around the town. As the evening approached the weather had turned really bad as the thunder storms rolled through the area. They got out of their camper and moved into the cab of the truck so they could sit and watch the lightening as it was so intense. My friend said at one point a blue lightening bolt shot down from above and hit the highway which of course lit up the entire area. He said it was a bad storm and amazing to watch.

Eventually as they watched the storm passed over and at the back end of it some stars were peeking through the cloud cover. All of a sudden they spotted a very bright light which seems to be falling towards the earth. They first thought it may have been a falling star, but due to the length of time they observed it (approx: 10 seconds) they started questioning themselves about it. The bright light seemed to fall straight down and as it went through or behind a cloud and became visible again they lost sight of it on the horizon. My friend explained that there was a dike of sorts which blocked their view so they were not able to see if the light actually hit the ground, or whatever became of it. He was so puzzled that the fellow got out of his truck and climbed up the back of his camper to get a better view. He was able to see over the dike which had blocked there view, but at this point he saw nothing at all.

Thank you to the witnesses for their report.
