Full Description of event/sighting: Hello, I live in a North Langley municipality in the Fraser Valley. I developed a bad case of insomnia and over the summer, I started to take late night walks to help relax me (I THOUGHT!). I was only in my second or 3rd night out and I was standing still doing some star gazing and I also like to try and spot the odd satellite moving across the sky.

On this particular night, I was looking virtually straight up when I saw a very bright "star" appear and then disappear! I thought I was maybe just seeing things but I got a very sick/excited type feeling in my stomach and body. It was like I just saw something I couldn't explain and it looked like it was not within our atmosphere.

I went home and couldn't stop thinking about what I just saw. In future walks, I started to take my camera with me but to date, I have not been able to catch anything on it. Then about 3 weeks ago, I was looking straight up again and low and behold, FLASH! Another bright "star" appeared out of nowhere... but this time I swear I saw some kind of trail behind it. It was stationary for about 2 or 3 seconds... then it disappeared and re-appeared (by my perspective) about 3 inches from the last position and this time I know I saw a trail behind it. It made two more appearances at different angles from it's last position and then it was gone! The whole episode only took about 15 or 20 seconds and I was just frozen there watching this. I didn't even remember I had a camera and even if I did, I wouldn't have had enough time to capture anything... besides, I couldn't take my eyes off of what I was seeing.

I have spent some time creating an animation which comes pretty close to what I saw and if you would like to see it... please let me know where to send it to (email address etc...).

I will continue to take my late night walks with my camera and I will update you with anything I find.

Thank you.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
