Multiple UFOs Downtown Vancouver British Columbia Above Cambie Street Bridge (Pictures)
Location of Sighting: Downtown Vancouver - above Cambie Street Bridge.
Number of witnesses: 15-20 people
Number of Objects: Approx 40-50
Shape of Objects: Round.
Full Description of Event/Sighting: Bright round and moving/dancing lights in the sky.
I was downtown with my kids watching the deflation of our air-filled football stadium which started at 10:00am. The weather was clear, very nice and sunny. The sky was blue with a some puffs of clouds here and there. Around 10:30am, a helicopter flew over, I looked up and beyond/above it, I noticed bright round lights.
It was shocking to see so many lights moving around way above the clouds. I'm not into sci-fi or Star Trek, so thinking this was some sort of UFO sighting didn't even dawn on me. I had a camera and started to take pictures as I knew this was something odd.
These lights were moving around with smooth movements, as if they were doing a show. They were definitely not planes or helicopters because they didn't fly like either one. The lights moved around in various (almost deliberate) directions, looking like they were making formations of star constellations. I clearly saw a 'mini' big dipper in the mass of lights. This entire globular round shaped mass group of lights (at least 40+ of them) were right above us and they were flying around en masse, in a circular shape.
People suggested they were balloons released and trapped in high winds or that they were birds, this is not logical to me because these objects stayed the same size, they moved individually in a propelled type motion and they didn't disappear into the sky as balloons would. The objects also stayed the same brightness, almost like looking up at a bunch of LED lights shining down.
They were bright and looked just like stars in the sky, except like I mentioned already, these "stars" moved in various directions/formations.
My 5 year old thought they were bubbles. After watching them for awhile, she said "they look like stars, but they can't be stars, stars don't move". I totally agree with her.
I stopped several passby/runners asking them to look up and verify what I was seeing, that I wasn't crazy to see such things in the sky. They too, were dumbfounded as to what these lights would be. I watched the lights for about 45 minutes.
My mother was way ahead of us pushing my younger daughter, when I finally caught up with her, I told her to look up at the lights. She was amazed (like the rest of us) to see the "light show" going on right above our heads in downtown Vancouver. We had to get going as my girls were hungry and the lights just kept going, so we left.
I've been trying to contact someone who can clarify what it was that we saw, my twin sent me some youtube video clips from Mexico and other locations, that really captured what I saw on May 4th, 2010.
If you know anyone else who's witnessed this type of sighting, please have them contact me. I'd love to hear about what they have learned on these lights.
Thanks for your help.
