Houston, B.C. Bright Light Penetrates Top Of Tree

Date: August 12, 2004
Time: Approx: 2:45 a.m.

I talked with a well known gentleman in the local shopping mall here in Houston, British Columbia. He had some story he wanted to relate to me. He said he was having a hard time sleeping on August 12, 2004, so he got up out of bed at around 2:45 a.m. and wandered out to the kitchen for a drink of water. As he walked down the short hallway he easily saw the kitchen area and other parts of the home were lit up in a bright while light. Wondering what was causing this he went over to the window and observed an extremely bright white light which was sitting stationary at the back end of his property. The light was barely above the tree tops, with the bottom end of it tucked in behind a clump of trees. What he told me surprised me as the man said the light rounded out the top of a large tree. Meaning that the light seemed to penetrate or remove this portion of the tree. (After the light had disappeared the tree remained intact)

Been totally surprised at this sight, he called one of his sons who lives on the next five acre parcel next to his and woke him up so he could also see what his father was looking at. Both from their separate homes watched the large light hovering in place. The older man went and grabbed his camera and was able to capture a shot of this light/object. (I will be adding the picture very soon).

He said there was not a sound coming from the direction the light was in, actually he said the early morning was very silent. Eventually after a short period of time the light just disappeared, or blinked out.

HBCC UFO Note: Now I know the area well behind the fellows home as at one time I peeled railroad ties for him. I can tell you there is nothing back there but forest. There is one gravel road which leads to the old Equity Silver mine but that is a little ways away. The witness said the light was right there just behind the trees.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
