UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Maple Ridge, British Columbia A Large Black UFO With Black Ball Attached

Date: June 8, 2008
Time: 9:30 p.m.

Location of Sighting: From balcony back of house - Object seemed to be over Derby Reach park across Fraser River.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Looked like a black inflatable raft of 50 feet with a round black ball about 10 ft diameter tethered to one end. Object was flying eastern direction just above treetops at low speed.

Full Description of event/sighting: Was out on my balcony for a smoke. House is on the side of a hill and the balcony is overlooking the area including views across the Fraser River. Some scattered clouds but generally clear skies. Was just after sunset.

I spotted a large black object resembling a black inflatable raft of about 50 ft length with a black ball about 10 ft diameter tethered to one end that was moving slowly in eastern direction. The object was floating just above tree-tops over the Derby Reach Park area across from the Fraser River.

The object seemed to perform a half turn maneuver rotating on itself left to right before hovering for 30 seconds then start ascending at a relatively slow pace until it reached cloud heights. The tethered ball part wasn't visible anymore after it's rotation.

I ran inside once the object started ascending and grabbed my wife's cell phone and shot 2 video sequences of the object - unfortunately the resolution of the video is so low that we cannot make out the object.

There were no lights and no noise from the object at any time throughout the sighting.

I lost track of the object after it went through a high cloud.

There are many condominiums on hillsides on the Haney side of the river, facing Derby Reach Park - hopefully somebody else will have seen something as from the altitude of the object when initially spotted - it would have been directly in the line of vision of people in those condos. Thanks.

I can send a map showing approximate location of the sighting for reference purposes. I am at the house on 228th St.. I can send the 2 videos captured with the cell phone if you want - just provide me e-mail address where I can send.
