|Stranger square-shaped craft over Delta, B.C.
It was raining lightly that night. We had left Ladner on Hwy 17 North and were on the southbound exit to Hwy 99, when I first noticed the large bright multi-colored lights (blue, purple, white, orange and green) to the northeast over Surrey. At first I thought it was a helicopter, but as we neared the Boundary Bay Airport the craft passed over our car and despite the fact that we were going 100 km/h seemed to hover keeping pace with us. I looked out the passenger window and saw the expansive square-shaped dark grey underside (no identifying markings) with 4 sets of 3 equally spaced (about 30+/-10 ft apart) oval lights lined up end-to-end emanating from the center to each corner. It was no more than 1000 feet off the ground and large enough to block the rain. There were no seams, hatches, flaps, or tail rudders visible, no discernable means of propulsion , and no sound. It continued southwest, and when I last saw the craft it was following Hwy 17 South in a slow and unhurried manner.
The sighting left me shaken and dumbfounded . I called McCord Air Force Base about a year ago to see if anyone could help to explain what I had seen, but I have yet to hear from them.
As a side note, earlier in the day on our way to Ladner about 13:00 hrs there were Canadian and US Fire Planes flying over the same area.
