Balfour - Nelson

Between Balfour And Nelson, British Columbia

Date: October 12, 2005
Time: Approx: 10:00 p.m.

A family of five, traveling on highway 3A heading south were between Balfour And Nelson, BC when the entire family observed what looked like a single ray of sunlight coming from the cloud cover. (It was dark out) The intense bright white light was lighting up a portion of the Kootenay River and the light seemed very focused on one area. Being a curious, the father stopped the car immediately. The Dad rolled down his window as he figured he would be able to hear some kind of aircraft flying above, but nothing was heard. Also the kids in the back seat were watching the sky above as they all were wondering what was causing this. They said a light could be seen coming from the cloud cover, but it was so bright at the source they could not see anything but the light.

They guess about one and a half minutes went by after they had pulled the car over to the side of the road when the light vanished, or went out. Again looking upwards the family was able to observe a number of red colored lights moving very slowly across the sky, yet still mixed in with the cloud cover. It wasn't long after the red lights disappeared and the event was over.

Being excited with the whole event, it wasn't after it was over did they start to think about what they saw and then were a little shaken up.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
