UFO Port Alberni valley early august

While my fiancee and i were camping on Kennedy lake west of Port Alberni we were sitting around our fire pit about to have dinner when i observed what i thought to be sunlight reflecting off an object on the hillside on the otherside of the lake towards the mountain pass. we initially thought that it was the sun reflecting off of something either metalic or glass.

because of its position close to the top of the hillcrest where there were no apparent roads i thought that maybe there was an old plane crash wreckage reflecting the light from the sun.

We pondered reporting it to the authorities in the area but did not. the object seemed to wobble slightly over the time that we obsered it but was hard to be sure because of the distance.

we continued to watch it until the fog crept across the mountain top and we lost visibility.

upon our return home the following week from our holidays we saw a news clip of the UFO sighting that was witnessed in Port Alberni and to our astonishment there was the object we had seen exactly.

I later checked satellite imagery for logging roads on that hillside and could find none. at no time did we even entertain the idea of a UFO when we saw it but now we are sure of what we saw.

next year i will check at the same time to see if it was a reflection or not if it is a reflection it will be there same as this year when the sun is on the hillside at 5:20 in the afternoon in the middle of august!!

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. Video tape of an anomalous object was taken in the vicinity of Pt. Alberni during the late summer, and we have viewed it. However, the object is distant and blurry in the video, and we cannot certify that the object is a genuine UFO. PD))
