Observing From Richmond, B.C. To The SE Towards Mt. Baker - Object

Date: April 17, 2005
Time: Morning sighting

Hi Brian, finally have something new to tell you. I have a friend (former neighbor) she is 75 yrs. of age and lives near No. 2 road in Richmond. She lives on the sixth floor and her apt. faces East. For years I have been telling her about different things I have been seeing and she has always seemed to take it with a grain of salt. She was a teacher in Fiji before moving here to Canada. Her late husband was an English University professor from India. So both were quite well educated.

She told me this morning she was sitting by her phone and glancing out her window when she noticed a large round dark object floating near the clouds. She first thought it looked like a Melon but when she looked through her binoculars told me it looked just like a large barrel just floating there. At first she thought it was stationary but as she watched realized it was slowly floating SE towards Mt. Baker. She said, “It was absolutely huge” and the binoculars brought it up really close. But other that it was dark and barrel shaped couldn’t tell me much about it.

She said as she watched it, it just seemed to slowly disappear and she didn’t know where it went. I asked her how far away it was when she saw it and she figured maybe over Surrey but she wasn’t sure, just that it looked huge when viewed through the binoculars. I believe she has a pair about 7 X 30. They are those little ones you can put in a purse. She kept saying I’ve never seen anything like that in my life. I told her join the club now you have seen a UFO.


My wife just came home 9:30 PM. I mentioned it to her and she told me a blimp or something doing advertising had been floating around South Surrey, but when I questioned her further she stated it was White/Blue and she had seen it several days ago. Apparently advertising Bell Telephone or something, So I don't think it had any bearing on what my friend saw this morning.

Thank you to the person for the interesting report.
