Location: Vancouver (Canada), BC, Canada

Shape: Disk

Sometime in the spring of 98 a friend called me from a lookout in the afternoon. He told me to look outside. We were both about 10 miles from downtown Vancouver and could easily see above and beyond it. What we both saw was seemed to appear like a classic 'disc' shaped object. The object appeared to be grey and just seemed to hover over the city. Although it could have been farther over the water, we couldn't tell. We watched it for about 5 minutes as it slowly made it's way from south to north. Then without warning, just seemed to disapear. To this day we tell people about it and have no doubt in our mind it wasn't a balloon or plane of any kind we've seen before. Unfortunetly, neither of us had the opportunity to capture the sighting on camera. Which makes our sighting probably one of thousands you recieve.

The 'disc' as mentioned, was grey. It was stationary when we 1st saw it. Then it slowly moved towards the north until it just disapeared. The sky was clear that day. (which is a rarity in Vancouver) So we know it couldn't have been a plane fading into the clouds. I and the witnesses were just out of high school at that time. If credibility is the reason you ask for a description of backgrounds, sorry, we aren't doctors or scientists. :) I would also like to add that i decided not to release any information about my detailed location due to privacy. If this was a more prominant sighting/experience combined with physical evidence, i would be more than happy to submit any information requested. :)
