Report Four - Remarkable UFO Wave Continues Over British Columbia Canada (UFO Investigator Brian Vike)

Investigated By Canadian UFO Investigator Brian Vike.

2001 Vanderhoof, British Columbia Crop Circle Investigated By Brian Vike (The Vike Factor)

On the evening of September 6, 2001 Brent Miskuski owner of Central Air Corp. was flying home from Vanderhoof, British Columbia to Prince George, British Columbia when he noticed a formation of crop circles.

The site is located approximately 3 miles east from the threshold of runway 25 at the Vanderhoof airport.

Late afternoon on Friday, September 7, 2001 I had an email from Jennifer Crosby, reporter for Northern Television (CFTK-TV) asking if I had heard of a new formation of Crop Circles in the Vanderhoof, British Columbia area. I told her no, I had not, but I told her if she would give me a little while, I would be happy to check into this story to see if there was any truth to it or not.

After a few phone calls with no luck, I placed another call to the Prince George Citizen who informed me that indeed there was a report from a Mr. Brent Miskuski owner of Central Air Corp., he had spotted the formation of 6 circles in a field approximately 5 kilometers from the airport in a farmers field.

I looked up the telephone number for the small airport in Vanderhoof and made the call. A gentleman by the name of Mr. Brent Miskuski answered the telephone and I asked if he could help me.

He was kind enough to provide me with the location of the circles, and how many there were in the formation. He also sent me 3 pictures that he took from his aircraft while flying over the the Crop Circle formation.

I made arrangements and prepared to leave my home in Houston, British Columbia for the 2 and a half hour drive first thing Saturday morning well it was still dark.

On September 8, 2001 I arrived early in Vanderhoof, British Columbia at 9:10 a.m., and made my first stop at a local variety store to pick up a couple of items. I asked the store clerk if she had heard anything about the Crop Circles in the area, she had no knowledge about the circles, but she did say there was a really bad order in the area a few nights back. So I paid for the few items and left the store.

I continued on and stopped at another farm, still looking for the field. I needed to get permission before entering the farmers land. As I drove along the road, I spotted an elderly lady who was out tending her garden. I drove into their driveway, got out of my truck and I introduced myself, and went on to explain about the Crop Circles in the area.

Once again, the lady told me pretty much the same story I just heard from the woman in town at the store. They did not know anything about the Crop Circles, but she did tell me about a foul odor, a smoky type smell in the air which turned out to be on the night the Crop Circles appeared.

She and her husband took note of the foul scent in the air just after Midnight. She also went on to tell me that she was discussing the bad odor with another friend who lives next door to her, they also smelled the same smoky foul scent. This stop was a good one for me, as she told me who the land owner was, or I should say who at the time leased the land to grow a crop on.

Now we have 3 separate witnesses who confirmed that there was a smoky type odor in the air on the early morning the Circles appeared. Now if this has anything to do with the circles, I don't know, but it is good to make a note of this.

After talking to the elderly lady I continued up to the home of the farmer who leased the field where the Crop Circles were found. I needed to get permission to investigate. I talked to the man's wife and explained why I was there, and if it would be ok to do my field work on the land where the Crop Circles were.

She said there would be no problem and gave me permission. I also was holding a copy of the Prince George Citizen which had just come out the morning of September 8, 2001 showing one picture, and telling about the circles in their field. She was so surprised to hear this news, she also asked me if she could have the newspaper to show her husband when he got home, which I was glad to give her.

Back down the road about 4 miles or so I went to where I came to the field where the Crop Circles were located. After running around trying to find the location, and getting permission, it now was 12:00 (midday) when I first entered the field. (it worked out good for me as the crop circles could not be seen from the road).

I grabbed my stuff from the truck and entered the field, but I followed along the edge of the grain field, fence line as not to destroy any of their crop. I would guess it was approximately 600 feet from the road, then swung into the center of the field to look for any signs of the circles.

From this point I was able to look over the field as I was up on a very small elevation in the field, and there was nothing to see other than grain blowing in the wind. I figured I had walked to far, so I started heading back toward the truck from where I was now, then I came upon the first  of the six Circles.

It was bloody awesome !

For my records I have named this one Mickey Mouse (The Crop Circle) as you will note from the picture. There is the main body (circle) for the head, and two smaller circles almost touching the main body (the head) which reminded me of ears, and of course Mickey Mouse.

In all six circles, the grain was not broken, it was like it was pushed hard to the ground. The bend in each of the stalks were bent a couple inches up the stalk from the ground.

Above Picture: The Grain in Mickey's Head - Circle Number # 1 was bent clock wise right to the ground until it reached the center where the grain became over lapping. (swirled on top of each other)

Above Photo: The Grain in Mickey's Right Ear - Circle Number # 2 Was bent counter clock wise to the ground until it reached the center where the grain became over lapping. (swirled on top of each other)

The Grain in Mickey's Left Ear - Circle Number # 3 Was bent clock wise right to the ground until it reached the center where the grain became over lapping. (swirled on top of each other)

Above Picture: The Grain In Circle Number # 4 - Was bent counter clock wise to the ground until it reached the center where the grain became over lapping (swirled on top of each other)

Above Picture: The Grain In Circle Number # 5 - Was bent counter clock wise to the ground until it reached the center where the grain became over lapping. (swirled on top of each other)

Above Picture: The Grain In Circle Number # 6 - Was bent clock wise to the ground until it reached the center where the grain became over lapping. (swirled on top of each other)

Investigator Brian Vike’s Note: As seen from the aerial photos, there looked as if there may have been one person who walked into the circles prior to my arrival. There was a small path which lead to Circle Number # 1, but no other traces of anyone walking through the grain to Circle Number # 4.

I did not see any breaks to the stalks of the grain from Circle Number # 4 to Circle Number # 5. There was no other disturbance in any of the circles, and no more paths leading into or out of this area where the circles are located.

I also took notice of chunks of solid ground which looked as if it had been moved. There certainly wasn't much of this, but if you looked closely you could see where chunks of hard soil had been moved when the Crop Circles were created.

Grain samples from each of the six circles were taken, and bagged, also soil samples were taken as well from each of the circles. Other samples, such as grain and soil were taken from around the surrounding area for comparison.

I also have taken pictures of the whole area,  and each of the circles and will have these developed Monday, September 10, 2001 and as soon as I pick them up I will scan these in and place them to my website.

Above Photo: This is a sample of the soil from Circle Number # 4. I removed samples of soil from each of the circles and surrounding area.

I have more pictures, but I think everyone will get the idea of what the Crop Circles looked like. 


Crop Circles Return Three Years Later.

by Gordon Hoekstra Citizen Staff, September, 2001

They'rrrrre baaaack !

Crop Circles have been discovered again in Vanderhoof, almost three years to the day they were first found in a ripe oat field just off the airport runway. This time the circles -- an unexplained worldwide phenomena variously said to be the work of trickers, magnetic waves and aliens -- were discovered in a field about 5 kilometers from the Vanderhoof airport, or about 100 kilometers west of Prince George.

Brent Miskuski, an owner and pilot of Central Air, spotted the six latest circles Thursday evening on a flight between Prince George and Vanderhoof. Miskuski was one of those who discovered the first crop-circle formation three years ago. No paths or tracks were visible into the circles, said Miskuski, who made several low passes and took pictures from the air on Friday.

"It just appeared. It's like they were stamped out just like last time," he said. "It's pretty bizarre."

Miskuski has already been in contact with a Crop Circle researcher, Chad Deetken, who came to Vanderhoof in 1998 to take samples and investigate the information. The researcher said tests performed on the oat samples in a U.S. lab later confirmed the Crop Circles were genuine: That is to say there were cellular changes in the oats not found in known hoaxes.

Crop Circles have created quite a bit of controversy. There is mention of crop-circle formations back to the 17th century, and thousands have been recorded in modern times, with the majority found in southern England.Some have found to be hoaxes, where the grass is broken, trampled, bruised or crushed. In the unexplained formations, the stems are bent but not broken.


Mystery Crop Circles Found At Vanderhoof.

An unexplained phenomena -- dubbed crop circles around the world -- has been discovered in the forestry and farming community of Vanderhoof, 100 kilometres west of here. Vanderhoof airport owner Brent Miskuski and pilot Larry Frey discovered 10 precise circles of varying sizes between 10 to 100 feet wide (three to 30 metres) in a ripe oat field just beyond the approach to the runway this weekend.

"This is bizarre, I'll tell you," said Miskuski. "It's one out of the twilight zone."

One of the local farmers said his dogs were barking out of control unexplainably Friday night, said Miskuski, adding there was no wind that night either.

Miskuski -- who took pictures from the air -- describes the oats as being bent over symmetrically and lying down very flat. There are no signs of trampling or disturbance, and there were no paths to the circles or between them, he said.

Vanderhoof resident Jay Bangs also viewed the circles from the air when he was flying with his father Sunday morning. He came back after the flight to get a closer look.

He thought there were maybe a half dozen "perfectly round" circles of varying sizes up to 50 feet (15 metres) wide.

Bangs described the oats as being all neatly bent over, with the oats intact on the stalks. "It was very precise."

It's creating quite a bit of talk in the community, said Bangs, who also took pictures of the circles.
Crop circles first appeared in modern times in England in 1972, according to The Crop Circular Internet site.

Since then, there have been about 9,000 reported and documented circles -- about 90% in England but also in B.C.

About 40% of the documented circles have been determined to be hoaxes, says Internet author Freddy Silva, where the grass is broken, trampled, bruised or crushed.

In the authentic, unexplained formations the stems are bent, normally about an inch off the ground, says Silva.


Crop Circles Make A Further Appearance In BC Field.

[Original headline: Mysterious circles crop up again in B.C. field]

VANDERHOOF, B.C. -- Crop circles, a worldwide phenomena variously said to be the work of tricksters, magnetic waves or aliens, have been discovered again in a northern B.C. field, almost three years to the day they were first spotted in the area.

This time the circles were seen in a field about five kilometres from the Vanderhoof airport, about 720 kilometres north of Vancouver.

Brent Miskuski, an owner and pilot of Central Air, spotted the six latest circles Thursday evening on a flight from Prince George to Vanderhoof.

Mr. Miskuski was one of those who discovered the first crop-circle formation three years ago.

No paths or tracks were visible to the circles, said Mr. Miskuski, who made several low passes and took pictures from the air on Friday.

"It just appeared," he said. "It's like they were stamped out just like last time. It's pretty bizarre."

Story originally published by: The Ottawa Citizen / ON - Sept 09.01

They're baa-aach... Following closely on the heels of crop circles that appeared in the Vanderhoof area in 1998, these six circles were spotted in a field of grain about five kilometers down Sturgeon Point Road.


Crop Circles Return To Vanderhoof.

Omineca Express Newspaper Serving Vanderhoof - Fort Fraser - Fraser Lake Wednesday, September 12, 2001

For the second time, pilot Brent Miskuski has seen something strange as he flew over Vanderhoof. On his way home to Prince George at about 7:30 last Thursday evening, Miskuski took off from the Vanderhoof airport over Sturgeon Point Road. Pressed into the grain crop were six circles - known as 'crop circles'.

"I didn't have my camera, so I went back out (Friday) morning and took some pictures," he said. "I don't know if anyone knows they're there. I didn't see any tracks of footprints going in there." As a pilot for Vanderhoof Flying Service, Miskuski has seen this before. The last time this area witnessed this phenomenon was in late August in 1998, when 11 circles appeared in a field leased by Halltray Farms.

"Last time, Eric (Spier) and I were the first to see those, too," said Miskuski. "There are fewer now and they're smaller." Spier, the pilot who spotted them first in 1998 agreed. "I don't think these ones are as nice as the first ones," he said. "They look rougher." Rough or not, the circles are already grabbing attention. Crop circle specialists from Vancouver, UFO enthusiasts and documentary makers are already on their way to the small town.

Brian Vike, an Unidentified Flying Object researcher from Houston, British Columbia was out Saturday morning, collecting soil and grain samples from the new circles. "This is my first time looking at circles like this," he said. "It's really exciting." Vike who describes himself as an open-minded person, usually gathers reports of UFO sightings in the area. He spent Saturday collecting as much data about the six circles as he could.

One formation of circles - now being referred to as "Mickey Mouse's head" - consists of three separate circles. The largest one is 30 feet across and is flattened in a clockwise spiral. The smaller two are 16 and 17 feet across the smaller one flattened in a counter-clockwise spiral and the other clockwise. About 30 feet away lies another 17-foot circle in a counter-clockwise pattern. Forty feet from that is a formation of two circles - one is 27' 9" across in a clockwise spiral and the other 19' 10" in a counterclockwise spiral.

"Nobody had touched it before I got out there," said Vike. "There is one set of tracks out to one of the circles, but absolutely none leading from circle to circle and no other disturbances to the grain at all." The stalks of grain in the circles are all intact, simply bent over, said Vike. Nothing broken, just flattened," he said. "The spirals go in tighter and tighter as you approach the center of the circle - and then they start to overlap a bit in the middle." Nike also interviewed several people in the area who reported a "smoky" smell on the night the circles were first seen. "One lady said the smell was so disgusting they had to get up and close the window, "he said.

Vike's UFO research has kept him hopping lately. He said sightings are up almost 55 per cent this year alone. (for Canada) He's never encountered crop circles before, however. I hate to say it, but I suppose it would be fairly easy to fake them. That's why we take all these samples for analysis," he said. The samples will be tested for "just about everything", including magnetic traces, chemicals, and molecular structure.

"Man made or not," said Vike, "they're still cool."


Crop Circles Appear In B.C. Field For Second Time In Three Years.

Ian Bailey National Post VANCOUVER - Residents of a small northern British Columbia community are thinking close encounters and magnetic forces as they try to explain a series of crop circles left in a barley field.

It's the second time in three years that mysterious circles have been found in a field in Vanderhoof, a farming and forestry community about 900 kilometres northwest of Vancouver in the geographical centre of B.C.

In 1998, 10 mysterious circles were found in farmer Philip Long's field of ripe oats near the airport runway, some up to 30 metres in diameter.

The latest circles -- six that are about seven metres in diameter, were found in Mr. Long's barley field, also near the airport.

Len Fox, Mayor of the community of about 4,000 people, says the new circles are the talk of the district.

"There are all kinds of explanations," Mr. Fox said yesterday. "You name it. Everyone has their own theory."

The new circles were first detected last Thursday by Brent Miskiski, owner of a local six-plane airline, Central Air.

"By fluke, I looked down and noticed the formation: six circles perfectly formed in a field," Mr. Miskiski said yesterday.

The next day, he took his camera up in his single-engine aircraft and took a series of photos of the circles.

"When you look at them, they're not stamped into the field. It's like they're combed into the field."

The circles look as if someone pressed a giant glass or coaster into the crops, crushing them flat, observers say.

Mr. Miskiski also discovered the 1998 series of the mysterious circles, a phenomena that has been linked to everything from aliens to unknown natural energies to "Mother Earth" to nature spirits to psychic manipulation.


Circles Mysterious Return.

Crop Watch 2001

They're baack. Three years after a set of mysterious, circular patterns appeared in an oat field next to the Vanderhoof airport runway, observers have spotted six more "crop circles" formed in the flattened grain. Crop circle experts promptly descended upon the town, located about 100 km east of Prince George, soon after the new patterns were discovered September 6, 2001

Canadian Crop Circle Research network field research assistant Brian Vike quickly headed out to collect soil and grain samples. The CCCRN had already expanded its research project into the mysterious shapes that are found more frequently I August and September than any other time of the year in Canada. The new circles aren't as intricate as the ones discovered in 1998

Vike noted Vanderhoof's six new circles weren't as intricate as those discovered back on September 1, 1998 by a local pilot, Brent Miskuski. Those circles ranged in size from 10 to 100 feet (30 meters). The CCCRN says a half dozen crop circle reports had come out of B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba so far this year. The network adds that nine other countries in the world have reported crop circle formations this year. It's not known what causes the curious formations. Some of them appear to be manmade; however others continue to baffle scientists because lab results of soil and plant samples show anomalies that can't be explained. The circles usually appear overnight and in all kinds of weather.

UFO Reports Below.

Vanderhoof, British Columbia and Jack Pine, Terrace, British Columbia.

Jack Pine Flats Terrace, B.C. UFO Sighting And Fisheries Technicians Observe Vanderhoof Crop Circles UFO

Date: March 4, 2002
Time: Approximately: 10:00 p.m.

This witness telephoned me to report what her, and her husband had witnessed after reading an article in the Terrace newspaper about UFO sightings around the north.

She tells me that they had a pretty weird sighting in the area of Jack Pine which is a area just 20 minutes outside of Terrace, B.C.

She also felt that this was very strange as her in-laws were coming over to their home early the next morning, but her husbands father likes to stop at Tim Horton's for a coffee.

When the father arrived at the witnesses home, he told them that he was talking to a fellow in Tim Horton's who had seen a "UFO" the night before and this lady who reported to me had not told the father that they also to had seen a UFO.

She went on to explain that both her and her husband just looked at each other wondering what it could be as they knew what they were watching did not have a rational explanation. Seeing her husband is a professional and works in the scientific field they were both at a loss, and said what else could it be other than a UFO ?

The sighting lasted approximately 20 minutes, and it was a very bright white light with a halo around it. She told me the light moved quite a bit from side to side but always seemed to come back to a center point and stay stationary before continuing to repeat itself. After the approximately 20 minutes time was up it disappeared.

The husband said to her that it could not have been a plane as they don't do things like this. (as above). I asked the witness what direction the light departed to, she said they actually did not see it leave, but said the light just went out.

I also asked if she would be able to give some idea of how big this would have been, she said at arms length the light would have been about the size of a pea or maybe a bit smaller.

The light was high up in the sky she said.

Investigator Brian Vike’s Note: This is where my ears perked up as she mentioned the crop circles in Vanderhoof, British Columbia and a close friend and biologist (fisheries technician) and her friend, another witness were working on a salmon enhancement project and had seen a large bright object/UFO hovering over the area where the crop circles were discover back in September, 2001. (the night before the circles were formed, this information was a total surprise to me).

It wasn't until two weeks later when the fisheries technician heard about the crop circles, and then she put two and two together thinking if what they saw had anything to do with the Crop circles.

I was told the fisheries technician would wake up every four hours to check the salmon traps to see if they had caught any fish. So the technician and her friend had spotted the object at approximately 4:00 a.m. and said it was so very bright and moving so strangely.

My phone number has been passed along to the fisheries technician so she can fill me in with the details of her sighting in Vanderhoof, British Columbia.

UFO Sat Stationary Then Moved Erratically And Disappeared Over Sunset Lake Topley British Columbia.

Date:  April 4, 2002
Time:  11:50 p.m.

A family watched a bright white glowing object staying stationary above Sunset Lake. It did not make any sound. Due to the overcast sky, they knew it could not be a planet or a star.

After about a couple of minutes the object rose up, moved erratically and disappeared in a southerly direction. They said that this was an event they will never forget.

Bright Object/UFO Seen With Orange Glow Above Houston, British Columbia.

Date:  April 21, 2002
Time:  11:00 p.m.

The witness watched a very bright white light, with an orange glow around it, for about a minute.

It was just above the tree line, northwest of the train bridge over the Bulkley River. She reported hearing no sound, possibly because she was indoors. The date is approximate.

Silent UFO Moves Into The Clouds And Vanished Over Hazelton, British Columbia.

Date:  July 25, 2002
Time:  10:50 p.m.

“I remember that the sky was still sort of pink we were celebrating the other guy’s birthday. It popped out from the left side of the mountains. “Fred” noticed that it didn't make any noise.

I never thought anything of it till he mentioned it so we watched it fly towards the clouds which were low at about 1 mile up. I remember talking to the others about how low the clouds were.

We watched it go into the clouds, it never came out the other side I figured that it disappeared. That is the best that I can remember.”

UFO Pulls Strange Movements Above Terrace, British Columbia (Diagram).

Date:  July 27, 2002
Time:  12:25 a.m.

Hello there Brian Vike, I am a 17 year old Terrace, British Columbia youth, my name is (name deleted). Before I discuss the odd event, I must tell you a few things about myself.

I’m an open minded artistic soul who has a strong belief in science and have always pondered how fantastic it would be if beings from other parts of our universe would pay earth a visit.

Although I always believed there had to be other life out there, I was never truly convinced that they had made contact with earth and its inhabitants until 2 nights ago, when I saw one the most unbelievable, life changing things of my life.

It was 12:25 a.m. on July 27, 2002, when I discovered there was a moving light in the sky, southwest of Terrace, British Columbia towards Prince Rupert, British Columbia at high elevation.

At first I thought it was probably a plane because of the light movement, but as the object began moving further east and higher up into the sky (yet closer in view) I began to realize it was in fact a cigar/maybe pancake shaped object with a flickering bright light moving around the side.

I still wasn’t completely convinced until I noticed how eerily alien its maneuvers were. I am not a stupid person, that was not natural, not human technology, and unlike anything I had ever seen before.

About 2 and half minutes after I had first seen it, it moved from a horizontal position to a diagonal position, but continued to slowly move in the sky frozen in the diagonal position.

The light was still running up the side. Since I was walking home at the time on Lanfear road towards Lanfear Hill, I lost track of the object once I headed up the trail, but the last minute or so that I saw it, it began moving northwest, and its elevation began dropping, then I lost sight  of it because trees on the trail obstructed my view.

I would sincerely appreciate any feedback/advise to help me with this incredibly life changing experience. Thank you for your time, I hope you can make good use of this new information.

P.S. I attached a scan of the original rough details I jotted down the moment I got home.

If you seen this object, or anything else like it, would you please contact me, Brian Vike at


Unknown Bright Object Flying Low Over Hazelton, British Columbia.

Date:  Late July 2002
Time:  10:50 p.m.

“It might be nothing, but during the last week of July 2002, myself and 2 others seen a bright almost white, well lit object in the sky going passed Mount Roche de Boule in Hazelton.

What was weird about it, was that the object was bright and made no sound. It was approximately 10:50 p.m. in the evening, and the cloud ceiling was below the peak of the mountain that evening.”

“It was clearly seen going in a straight line through the clouds, almost like it was heading towards the Smithers area. I thought it was weird because the clouds were so low that if it were a small plane you would see the red or green flashing lights on the tail of the plane and hear the drone of a motor.

Also what struck me was the speed in which the object was traveling, kind of fast for a small plane, and the cloud ceiling was also low. We'd seen it go almost under and thru the clouds and come out again, so the cloud ceiling could not have been that high, maybe 3000 feet?”

If you seen this object, or anything else like it, would you please contact me, Brian Vike at


Shiny Metallic Cylinder Shaped UFO Seen In The Sky From Houston, British Columbia (Video And Pictures)

UFO Investigator Brian Vike’s Note: My wife and I did see part of this sighting from our home in Houston, British Columbia.

Date:  August 23, 2002
Time:  7:00 p.m.

The witness was at the kitchen sink washing up the day’s dishes and looking out the window which overlooks their large farm. At the far end of their property she noticed a large bright light heading down behind the trees.

She could clearly see that it was a shiny cylinder-shaped object, metallic in colour. To her surprise, the object then looped around and headed back up into the sky.

The witness then grabbed her video camera and filmed the object. The tape shows a large bright comet-shaped object moving slowly across the sky.

About half an hour later, while finishing up the dishes, she saw another “large, bright white object” rise up from behind the Telkwa mountain range.

The object rose straight up above the mountain and then stopped and hovered. She again grabbed her video camera and filmed it as it slowly moved off to the right, along the top of the range.

At this point she ran out of film and had to grab another tape. When she started filming the object once again it had already reached the end of the mountain range and was dropping down, but still following the contour of the range.

She filmed it until it was blocked behind the trees on her property.

If you seen this object, or anything else like it, would you please contact me, Brian Vike at


Unknown Objects Film In The Sky From Francois Lake, British Columbia (Picture)

Date:  August 23, 2002
Time:  9:00 p.m.

“Hi, I am just adding my story to your list of sightings. I don't believe in space ships etc., but I did see something I did not understand or have an explanation for.

On August 23rd about 9:00 p.m., just before dark my husband decided he wanted to take a picture of the sunset at the west end of Francois Lake, looking west up the valley to Nadina Mountain.

We drove down to the bridge over the river there and he got out and spent several minutes taking 3 or 4 shots of the sky to the west.

While he was doing this I stayed in the car and watched the sky, thinking that I could see just the smallest sliver of a moon peeking from behind the trees.

When he got back into the car, I said something to my husband about getting the moon in a sunset shot, and he said what?

That is impossible, the moon can't be in that part of the sky what are you thinking. So I said look at that sliver of light next to the trees, it has been there the whole time you were taking pictures, if it isn't the moon what is it?

He asked if it had moved, I said no not at all, then while we were looking at it the light did start to move westward. We both watched and puzzled over this for several minutes then I said that he should try and get a picture of what ever it was. So he grabbed his binoculars first and we spent a couple more minutes trying to see what it was that we were looking at.

Finally as it was moving farther off he snapped a picture of this light that we could not define and then we left. Today we got the pictures developed and there is this light far off, but still obviously incandescing and to our surprise we find two other similar, but more distant lights in the photo.

I will forward a picture to you when I can get it scanned. I see you have had one other report from Francois Lake, can you tell me what that one was about? Bye now, (my husband and I wish to remain nameless)”

Mill Worker Observes UFO Over Houston, British Columbia.

Date:  August 30, 2002
Time:  3:42 a.m.

My name is (name deleted), and I am a life long resident of Houston, British Columbia. I will make this short and sweet. I have been a paranormal and parascience 'freak' for my entire life, so the recent events concerning 'UFO' sightings in the Bulkley Valley have been of great interest to me as you can well imagine.

I soberly took the summer's sightings under careful consideration as they happened this year, not getting too excited, but trusting that things were exactly as they were reported, especially concerning the Quick, British Columbia area sightings which involved people of impeccable trustworthiness.

The morning of August 30, 2002, changed everything in a big way. What I witnessed that morning soberly seared me with a realization that one can only experience with the background that someone like you or I can understand based on many years of solid scientific research mixed with the accounts of hundreds of incidents ranging from the Roswell situation up until the Bob Lazar story that I'm sure you have scrutinized as carefully as I have.

It was Thursday night, which at 3:42 a.m. is technically a Friday morning, August 30. Two friends of mine had driven up from Vancouver to visit, and on my lunch break I had gone to meet them at the scale turn-off to HFP (Houston Forest Products) to give them the keys to my house.

As I returned to work, I parked my car and walked through the 'gate' to the yard leading to the sawmill. This was exactly 3:42 a.m.. While walking through the gate where people walk from the parking lot to the sawmill, I caught something in my vision and saw it.

You surely have been to Houston Forest Products, so you can envision the following description. From the exact point where I walked through the gap in the parking lot fence, I saw 'it'.

I looked up to see a light source travelling at an angle approximately 25 degrees downward from a right to left position above the planer mill, on a constant heading and speed from the burner to the planer roof and out of view. I stopped dead when I saw it, and watched it move in a perfectly straight and perfectly even speed until it was out of view over the planer roof.

Picture the planer as being a building approximately 300 yards from my position at the border of the parking lot. Beyond the planer is a couple of railway tracks and a chip pile, and then a beaver pond and then forest on a hillside.

The light source was clearly beyond those trees on the hillside, but not much. It was an overcast night, so the object was clearly well below the cloud level. As far as the size of the 'object', that is obviously completely dependent on its distance from my position. I estimated that it was less than a quarter mile away, which would have made its size quite small, maybe three to four feet in diameter.

It moved on a perfectly straight line, disappearing below the tree line. As for its appearance, it was a very even light source that was purely 'white' without twinkling in any way. In other words, it was not a small bright source but rather an actual round circle of perfectly consistent light emitting from its entire surface.

As for speed, again it's hard to say as it would be based entirely on its distance from my position. Let me say that what stood out was the absolute 'evenness' of its movement, which more than anything else gave me an eerie sinking in my guts. At that time I knew that it was moving faster than a Cessna would, but far slower than any celestial object such as a shooting star would.

There's not much else to say. After seeing it disappear out of sight I ran inside the mill, and grabbed a millwright that I respect for his intelligence and open-mind. I basically dragged him onto the roof of the sawmill where we stood and scanned the sky for the next hour or so, without seeing anything but not for lack of looking.

With very little thought as to the consequences I told everyone I met that night what I had seen, and at the first opportunity I grabbed a compass specific map of the mill site and plotted out the vector of what I had seen that night. Taking into account a wide margin for the distance from my position, I shaded a plot of land where the object would have been, and the next day dragged two friends out to the area where I spent upwards of three hours zig-zagging around the area on the infinitesimal chance that there would be some ground based evidence of what would have been the point where the light source I saw met the Earth based on it's downward angle.

While I didn't find anything, it is interesting to note that amongst the cattle range land in the area there is a hydro R.O.W. that runs perfectly parallel to and at a proper distance to my viewing stance. It is not unreasonable to say that the light source I saw was directly over this power line, which could bring into discussion several electro-magnetic possibilities for what I saw (even though the object I witnessed would have been 500 feet or more above the power lines when I first saw it).

That's about it, all I can say in summary is that what I saw was quite obviously not a shooting star or satellite (it was 'near' in other words) and it was not a plane or any other kind of craft that could explain what I saw. There was no tail of any kind to what I saw, and all I can emphasize is that not only was the light perfectly even in it's whiteness (no twinkling) it was the steadiness of it's movement that was most striking.

This was not glare from something, this was not a celestial phenomenon and certainly not a craft of any design I can imagine. Even behind the direct glare of many bright halogen lights along the roof of both the planer and the sawmill this light source stood out, so you can get an idea of how bright this was to catch my attention as it did. Feel free to use this information as you see fit, and contact me if you think there is any more information I can provide.

If you have trouble visualizing the area of my sighting, just think of something travelling from South to North about a quarter mile East of the Houston Forest Products parking lot. Also, if you need to discuss UFO's in general, get ahold of me because I assure you I am as educated as anyone can be in this area.

Object As Bright As An Arc Welder Seen From Terrace, British Columbia.

Date:  September 14, 2002
Time:  9:30 p.m.

A man and woman saw a bright white light in the northern sky. As they watched, it grew larger and brighter. The man said that the object was extremely large and as bright as an arc welder, but white in colour.

He stated that, at its closest, it was 3 to 4 times as big as the moon. At one point before the object reached their home, it stopped for a couple of seconds, then continued towards them, passing close by the property.

They watched this large object get smaller and smaller as it flew to the south towards the Kitimat, British Columbia area.

Strange Object Seen Moving Slowly Seen From Houston, British Columbia.

Date:  October 3, 2002
Time:  10:15 a.m.

A Houston resident reported seeing a very strange object traveling slowly in a southwesterly direction. The witness was on her telephone talking with her daughter, she was looking out their kitchen window which faces the Telkwa Mountain Range.

She noticed a strange, pale yellow colored object traveling slowly below the horizon of the mountain range. She said it was completely "round".

The sky was clear, except for some low cloud/fog in some areas, but the location where she observed the object, the weather conditions were clear.

The witness told her daughter to hold on, dropped the telephone and ran outside onto their patio deck to get a better look at it. At this time the object rose up against the sky line, but still continued along it's path, which again was in a southwesterly direction heading towards the Morice River Road.

Orange/Gold Coloured Saucer Shaped UFO Seen Over Granisle, British Columbia.

Date:  October 22, 2002
Time:  10:25 p.m.

Two witnesses were travelling north, just a couple of kilometers south of Granisle, British Columbia when they observed a large glowing orange/gold almost saucer-shaped object hovering right over top the old Bell Copper mine. (The old mine is on an island on Babine Lake, about 1 kilometer directly across from them).

They said it was very low to the ground. At this point they pulled over to have a look and to try to figure out what they were seeing. As they watched the object hover, it would rise up very slowly and come to a complete stop, move sideways then stop and drop down roughly the same height from the ground when the witnesses first saw it.

At one point the object moved out over the lake and stopped for a few seconds, then went back over top the mine once again. The object looked almost as large as a full moon would have looked. It made no sound that they could hear.

The witnesses said that everyone traveling the highway had to have seen it, you couldn't miss it. They said the area around the object, (ground area) was lit up for some distance.

Also due to the brightness of the craft it cast its reflection on the lake. The men watched this event for about 7 minutes before it rose up and left slowly heading north, still at a low altitude, and out of their sight.

Bright Yellow/White Light With Beam Coming From The Bottom Of The UFO Over Kitwanga, British Columbia.

Date:  November 1, 2002
Time:  6:30 p.m.

Four people were returning home from work about 22 kilometers outside of Kitwanga, British Columbia on the Mitt-In-Main Forestry road when they saw a bright, yellowish/white light with a "beam" coming from the bottom of it.

They saw it for about 3 seconds before it disappeared. One witness said that the beam of light was like holding a flashlight and shining it into a fog. He said that the light did not move and then it just disappeared.

Bright White Saucer Shaped UFO Seen Over Houston, British Columbia.

Date:  November 4, 2002
Time:  6:35 p.m.

The witness had just walked out of his house and was about to get into his car when he saw bright white saucer/oval-shaped object moving across the sky very quickly.

There was no tail associated with it. What ever it was, was heading in an easterly direction at a rather low altitude (below the cloud cover).

The sighting lasted for about 6 seconds before he lost sight of it as it flew over top a small local mountain. The witness reported hearing no sound from this object.

Unknown Lights In The Sky Over Terrace, British Columbia.

Date:  November 23, 2002
Time:  5:15 p.m.

Five witnesses saw a bright white light in the east, over Thron Hill Mountain. The light initially looked twice as big as Venus, but slowly faded and disappeared after 10 to 15 seconds.

About 15 minutes later, two more lights were seen for a few seconds before blinking out. All the witnesses thought it strange that there was one cloud hanging over Thron Hill Mountain the whole time of their observation, even though it was very windy and the rest of the sky was clear.

Bright Lights Seen On The Bottom Of The UFO Seen From Terrace/Kitimat, British Columbia.

Date:  December 19, 2002
Time:  9:25 p.m.

“From Onion Lake ski trails it looked like one big light. As we got closer to it, there was a number of bright lights hovering over the forest. It was hard to see the shape because the lights were so bright.

It was the wrong shape for an airplane or a helicopter. The passenger in the car counted 6 large bluish white lights on the bottom of the object and there was another row of lights above this, also smaller red and blue flashing lights.

Turned around at the bottom of the hill and went back and the object had disappeared.”

Bright White/Yellow Light/UFO Spotted Hovering Over The Trees At Granisle, British Columbia.

December 27, 2002
Time:  2:10 a.m.

The witness and three other co-workers were doing some last minute work around the logging camp which is located across Babine Lake from Granisle, British Columbia.

One of the workers gave out a loud cry telling the other workers to look about half a kilometer to the north. The men all witnessed a bright, white/yellowish light coming from behind the trees in the distance.

At this point all that was visible was a brightness shining above the trees. After dropping everything the men were doing, watching and wondering what this glowing light was, to their shock a large glowing golden/orange disk shaped UFO with a large halo of white around the craft rose up in the distance and stopped and hovered.

They observed the object for about 10 seconds at the most, which the fellow said, “seemed like a life time”. As the object moved away from their location, heading roughly to the north they did lose sight of the craft quickly, but could still see the bright light, which they figured was coming from the object. After about 5 minutes the light grew faint and disappeared.
