Glowing lights/orbs over Fort Nelson, BC.

I've witnessed multiple orb-like sightings over the past few years, in the Fort Nelson area. They are as follows: I can't remember the exact year of the first one, because I was just a kid, but it was somewhere between 2000-2003. It was winter and I was playing outside with my friends in the evening, it was dark out with a clear sky. I saw what looked like a star or planet in the sky suddenly get very bright and orange, it looked like a fireball of sorts. Within half a second or so it faded, and there was nothing at all there anymore. I didn't really think anything of it, other than "wow that was cool!", and I wondered why the original star disappeared.

I saw the same thing again in 2011, only with white light instead of orange this time, and later at night in mid-to-late summer. I told one of my friends who was with me, that I had just seen a star get really bright then totally disappear. She hadn't seen it though, and she just said I was seeing things. At that point, I wondered if what I had witnessed were supernovas, but after doing research on supernovas, I realized that was highly unlikely..

My third sighting was in early summer, 2015. It was late at night, and I was laying in bed looking out the window of my basement level apartment, just looking at the sky trying to fall asleep. All of a sudden this bright red glowing dot (larger than a satellite, and much brighter) came into view from the edge of my window. I jumped up, now very much awake, and went to the window to get a better look. This glowing dot/orb was a steady light, not pulsating. It was traveling in the sky from the north of town, and looked like it was going on a slightly curved path through the sky right over town. It was pretty high up from what I could tell.

I watched this light for about 1.5 seconds, when suddenly a second red light appeared some distance behind the first. They both moved in a straight line briefly, then the first light got very bright, and looked as though it was descending towards town, in my direction in fact.

I'm not one to scare easily but I suddenly felt very uneasy like I was being watched. The second light faded into black sky and disappeared. The first light continued to get slowly bright and lower, as though it was getting closer to my street. The feeling that it was watching me suddenly very strong, that's when I started to feel scared instead of just uneasy. I ducked down beneath my window out of sight. By the time I was brave enough to look out again it was gone.

I should add that both of these lights were moving very slowly and steadily like they had a purpose, no zipping around quickly. The whole thing lasted less than a minute I believe.

The most recent sighting I had was in the fall of 2015. I was stargazing with some friend on a hill just outside of town, when I saw another bright orb-shaped light, this time white. This time there were multiple people who saw it. Again it was coming towards town from the north, moving steadily and with a constant light, not pulsating. We watched it for a good 30 seconds or more, and could tell it was flying much lower than any satellite (I should mention there was an avid stargazer with us, who knows their stuff very well. He agreed it was not a satellite but didn't know what it might be). From where we were we could see most of town, and when it got to just outside of town it faded and disappeared.

These all took place in or very near the town of Fort Nelson.
