Squamish, B.C. Flashing Light & Strange Noise

Date: September 8, 2005
Time: 1030 to 1055 p.m.

Location of Sighting: Squamish North to end southeast.
Number of witnesses: 3
Shape of objects: Lights

Full Description of event/sighting: I was closing the blinds to my sliding door and I saw a strange very white flickering low on the horizon. I at first mistook the "flashes for lightning, as there had been some clouds earlier and the weather report had predicted a shower for the following day. It didn't "feel" like lightning does when I saw it though, I couldn't figure out exactly what until I had watched it for a few minutes. The flashes were too regular, or constant, and there was no thunder, or rumble, or such. That is when I realized that the "train" that I had presumed was passing at that time was still making the same very low to be almost inaudible, but very deep humm-throb noise/vibration, like a large sort of truck was idling nearby or something. I can't quite describe it properly.

The noise and flashes/flickers of this low lying strangeness continued for about 25 minutes as far as I could tell. I watched the movement of it from almost due north , and It stopped suddenly in the middle of a flash, and was gone. It was a few seconds or a minute later I realized the sound had also quite abruptly ceased with no fading out or becoming louder as a car truck or train becomes while approaching passing and departing. I did not tell anyone until My boyfriend who was driving up the highway from Vancouver towards Squamish with another fellow at the time, had witnessed the same lights and while they did not mention the hum, this could be due to the fact they were inside a moving vehicle at the time. They also felt it strange enough to mention, and I was slightly relieved that someone else had seen it and I was not losing my marbles or anything.

I do hope this was helpful in any research/ info you may be doing.

Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.
