UFO Sighting Report - Canada

July 12th 2008 : Saanich, British Columbia

Saanich, British Columbia A Burnt Orange Spherical Object

Date: July 12, 2008
Time: 2:43 a.m.

Location of Sighting: See notes.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Spherical.

Full Description of event/sighting: The object was sighted in the east-north-east sky (approx 60 degrees as indicated using a Silva compass and subtracting 23 degrees to compensate for magnetic declination) from the above noted location. The inclination angle was measured at +/- 16 degrees using a Suunto hand-held clinometer. These measurements were taken on July 13 2008.

The object appeared to be spherical in form, but without well defined margins. It was a "burnt orange" colour. From my vantage point, the object appeared to be about 10 times the size (apparent) of Venus. The intensity of the emitted light could be likened to a 100 watt porch light as viewed from a block away, or slightly brighter than last night's moon.

The object was viewed for less than 10 seconds as it flitted with great speed in the area of the sky described. The event ended with the object departing in a westerly direction extremely fast.

The object appeared to be over the area of Haro Strait where it converges with Georgia Strait... approximately mid-way between Sidney BC and Bellingham WA.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
