Duration:5 mins.
Object/Light exploded/or flashed brightly.

A witness contacted me today July 20, 2003 to explain what he saw on July 17, 2003. It was 8:00 p.m., clear skies (daylight) and he saw a silver, round shaped object traveling at an extremely high rate of speed coming from the west heading east. The sighting took approx: 4 seconds before it disappeared from his line of sight. He also mentioned that it took him totally by surprise to see something move so quickly. No sound was heard due to the distance from the object. He said it was no "darn" aircraft we have, as to the speed the object was traveling. I asked if he might be able to give some details to what the object looked like, but he said it happened so fast he could not get a proper look at it.

Thank you to the witness for his report.

A witness reported seeing a strange object sitting stationary over the mountains to the north. He was traveling on Highway #16, just crossing the bridge over the Kalum River. He pulled over to the side of the highway to get a better look at it. He said the object moved from side to side, and up and down ever so slightly. (HBCC UFO Note: At this point of the conversation I was thinking what the gentleman had witnessed was nothing more that a star, until he gave me the rest of the story).

He watched the object stay in a stationary position for approx: 5 minutes before it exploded/or flashed brightly. He said at this point it stared to move downwards and ended up losing sight of it when it dropped behind one of the local mountains. He described the color of it as being neon green in color, with a whiteish aura surrounding the object. He also noted seeing a neon green and blue twinkling lights at the bottom of the object. He also said he believed there were a number of white flashing lights that were more to the center of the object. The witness said he did make a report to the authorities.

Thank you to the fellow for his report.
