Location: Matsqui (Canada), BC
Shape: Cigar
Duration:10-20 mins
Matsqui BC, April 1983(best guess)21:00hrs moving east to west along Fraser River and passing Mission

I was working on a dariy farm in Matsqui prarie and went out around 21:00 hrs to check the herd. Walking out the west end of the barn and was looking north west towards the town of Mission. Then I noticed in the clouds a darker cigar-shape moving in a east to west direction.The object was just slightly darker than the srounding cloud cover. This was opposite the winds of that night. It was at a distance of about 2 to 4 kms, looked like it was following the Fraser river, and in front of the hill that Mission is built on. There was low, fast moving clouds (fully overcast)that night.

At the time I was in my mid twenties, very involved in my church, rasing my young family. Being spritualy aware (there is much more going on than meets the eyes)but not at all beliving that UFOs were from outer space, but a trick played by Satan to pull people to his side. That is the reason that I did not report this to anyone till recently.

Twenty years changes things
