We saw a giant silent floating disc hovering above Deep Cove's marina inlet in North Vancouver, shining very bright lights around.

Deep Cove UFO sighting: Jan 6, 2016.

Personal background I am an adult, part time artist, living in Deep Cove, North Vancouver. I have lived in the area of Deep Cove, in North Vancouver, B.C. for most of my life, around 25 + years. To give a brief description of my personal background I believe in peace on Earth, and aim to contribute my energies there. Lately, more than before in previous years I have been seeing objects floating in the night sky that are hard to identify or even explain. Many of these experiences have been UFO sightings.

Description of the UFO sighting I witnessed with my father on the night of Thursday, Jan 6th, 2016, at approx. 9:30 pm.:

At approx. 9:30pm, as my father and I were sitting at the benches on the hillside next to the proximity of the kayaking facility/rental business, just south, facing north of Panorama Park, in downtown Deep Cove, we both witnessed a massive unidentified floating object, or disc, hovering at the height of approx. 100 - 200 meters above sea level; floating absolutely silently over the Marina, initially appearing from behind Seymour Mountain. It had at first appeared at the top of the mountain peak, near beside a popular look out - Quarry Rock.

This object was round or disc shaped, appearing dark in color. When it first appear, however, it was just a singular light. Then it proceeded to leave the area coming over the Marina, directly hovering over the ocean (cove inlet). It stayed there for at least a minute, shining its lights (which was initially just one singular, then became three lights, then became multiple).

As the object descended from the mountain over the ocean, it expanded and became a massive round shaped disc, approx. 10 or more times the size in diameter - to that of the moon the in sky- multiplying its array of displayed visible lights, to approx. over one dozen bright lights. The lights at first were the same size and large, and as the object expanded over the ocean and became a larger disc shape, the lights became different shapes and sizes (large-round & small-square), and were arranged in symmetry around the object’s outer edge. Pattern of the lights around the edge: was one large-round light, then three to four little ones, then one large one, etc.

At this point the UFO then proceeded to shine these lights out in all directions. The light itself was very bright and powerful, but not seemingly blinding. It was a contained light, and not ‘radiating’ outward, but ‘concentrated’, spotting certain areas.

My father and I were both facing north at the time of the sighting, and were both standing at approx. 30 feet above sea level. There was a thick fog in the sky. Although I have a hard time recalling if it was in fact clear out, or if there was stars visible. The photo we snapped appears to have many star like lights in the image.
