Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Unusual light travels down through the canyon.

Honey Moon Bay (Lake Cowichan, Vancouver Island) A gentleman called the toll free number to file a report on seeing some bright white lights flying low over the tree tops on the mountain behind his residence. Besides reporting lights for January 4, 2004 he also told me he witnessed bright lights on January 1, 2004. He went on to explain there is no service roads, or roads of any kind up on the mountain. The witness said there also is a large canyon which cuts through the mountain side where some of these lights were being observed. The fellow ruled out any kind of vehicle due to the roughness of the terrain and again the lights were traveling over the tree line. He said there was not a sound coming from the lights, as his home is close enough to where he would have heard if the object was a helicopter or other type of aircraft. Also seeing it was after dark and traveling so very low a pilot would have been crazy to fly an aircraft at such a low altitude in hazardous conditions. The lights were not traveling at a fast clip, but moving slowly. When the man decided to run and grab his binoculars and came back out on his deck, the lights had vanished. As he thought back he thinks that there were more lights on the one bright object. At one point the light traveled down the mountain through the canyon towards his direction which was to the north. As it drew closer to the lower part of the mountain it turned to the west and of course disappeared soon after.

Two years earlier the fellow and his girlfriend saw similar lights on the mountain at approx: 10:00 p.m., but this time the lights seem to hug the mountain as they flew slowly along.

Thank you to the witness for his report.
