Location: Houston (Canada), BC
Shape: Light
Duration:4 to 6 minutes
multi colored object sitting in one position - not a star.

I received a report from a witness (today - May 17, 2003) who resides in Houston, B.C.. One witness on his way to the Huckleberry Mine outside of Houston. At approx: 70 kilometers south from town he saw a multi colored object sitting in one position in the distance a head of him. He said to me that he thought it was a bright star due to it twinkling different colors. But after a second or two he thought it could not be that as it was totally over cast. The fellow said he had some extra time before he had to be at his work place, so he stopped and watched the lights for approx: 4 to 6 minutes before it dropped down suddenly behind a mountain. He also claims that the lights dropped "straight" down rather quickly. Because he was at a distance from it, he certainly could not hear any sounds coming from the thing. The lights/object did not make any sudden movements, it just sat in the one position before disappearing behind the mountain. In the area there are no towers, or anything else which would cause any strange lighting. The area in question is very rugged and wild.

HBCC UFO Note: When the chap was telling me the story, I first thought it may have been a star also, but after hearing it was a overcast night/morning and hearing that the lights/object dropped quickly straight down behind a mountain, I kind of ruled out this sighting as being a star. Whatever it was, it left an impression on the guy.

Thank you to the witness for his report.
