Location: Victoria (Canada), BC
Shape: Diamond
Diamond shaped object in night sky S-S of Victoria BC at around 11 o'clock position

Light that is visible in a fixed location in the night sky S-SW of Victoria BC approximately in the 11 o'clock position in the sky. Light is much brighter than any other object in the sky and seems to be diamond shaped that is off-yellow in colour. I noticed it from my backyard and was visible through the trees, this is why it caught my eye. I'm no astronomer so it could be venus or another celestial body, even a satellite but I have never noticed it before and it appears synthetic to my untrained eye. As of 1:57am it is still visible and appears to have moved somewhat. Not moving very much though.

((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the witness might have witnessed the planet, Mars, which is quite prominent, currently. Witness elects to remain totally anonymous, and provides no contact information. PD))
