|A few repeated, multi-coloured streaks of light in an apparently south-easterly direction
Around midnight PST (Thursday), my friend and I had decided to go searching for some of our other buds who were supposed to meet up w/ us. We decided to check a favourite meeting spot. It is a cliff that overlooks the Strait of Georgia between Vancouver Island and the mainland. The area is isolated and high up from city lights so visiblility of the night sky is fairly good. As soon as our eyes became adjusted after exiting the car to look for our friends, my attention was diverted to the sky where I glimpsed a red streak of light travel south-easterly extremely rapidly. The streak of light was very long in covering a distance approximately a quarter of the night sky. The streak of light was not large in length. After the streak had dissapeared, subsequent differently coloured streaks were observed travelling in a similar direction but originating in a position west of the original streak. We thought that our eyes were decieving us until I heard the reports on Art Bell's ra! dio program. Brilliant show! The streaks and the radio program!
