I saw a large, round light, moving extremely slowly towards the top of the mountain across from me at treetop level.


At approximately 7pm Sunday night Oct 27 I walked out on my west-facing deck to check out the evening just before it got dark. Had been working at my computer until then.

As I looked over the Alberni Inlet, I noticed a large, slow moving light in the Western sky, somewhat to the South. Approximately opposite the APD mill. It was too big and not bright enough to be a planet or star, too slow moving to be a normal aircraft. It slowly moved towards the tree line, looked like it was just above the trees. I realized it was exceptionally unusual and I should get my camera. I ran in and grabbed my camera and came out and shot about half a dozen pictures. None are that clear, but by zooming in on the computer I could see a perfectly round object with raised markings on the bottom: ridges and indentations going in a circle………….almost like a “copyright” seal.

I phoned a friend who lived at the lake, somewhere on the other side of that mountain. While I was telling her to look in the Eastern sky, back towards town, she said: “ I see it through the trees, a light in the sky”.

I told her to try and get a photo but haven’t managed to connect with her yet to see if she did. I have several photos I am willing to submit…………will see if there is an upload option on the official form.
