Possible satellite ? But satellites do not stop and hover !

Email report Received: March 15, 2003 Hello, I finally had a spare moment to find out who to tell about what I saw last December about a week and a half before Christmas.

I live approx 17 Km north of Hazelton, B.C. And I was awakened by my dog barking by the south-facing glassdoor around 3:30am. I took him out because he was going crazy. I stood on the front porch and thought he had to do his duty. Instead he stood by the bank barking into the sky. I looked up more closely into the cold, clear, star-filled night.

Then I saw a moving "satellite". It was traveling over the town of Hazelton heading west. It was red, with a blinking white light. The blinking light was steady at first blink, blink, blink. Then it got irratic right over Hazelton and would skip a blink or two. I decided to grab the binoculars, and it looked too close to be a regular "satellite", way up there as I have seen several times in the past.

The time while I saw it throught the binoculars, it looked like a round ball or sphere and was predominantly a red glow about it. And it appeared to have the white light blinking off to the side on the outside of the "satellite".

After passing over to the west of Hazelton, it then hovered above what I think was Kispiox Village just north of Hazelton. It is just 4 Km south of my porch view. As it is a narrow valley, it then appeared to move up along the Hazelton Mountain and north along the western side of the Kispiox Valley finally passing along the Kispiox Mountain. Then from my view it disappeared, behind the tall pines around the house.

I really thought it could be any regular "satellite" at the time, whether it be Canadian or US due to the security concerns of the past year. And it could have been on its way to Alaska? HBCC UFO Note: I have just wrote back to the witness to gather up some more details which may be very inmportant to determine what this object, (light) might be.
