Location: Houston (Canada), BC
Shape: Light
Duration: approx: 30 seconds
It split into two balls of light and each ball of light "shot" off at an incredible rate of speed.

A fellow called me from Prince George today (February 7, 2004) as he had a story to tell me over a sighting that he and a friend of his had back in 1985 while working in Houston and the Burns Lake areas. Due to his occupation the gentleman had to travel back and forth at that time between towns.

They were working on contracts at two different jobs. One late night, around midnight they were on their way back to Houston from Burns Lake, B.C. and were about 5 kilometers east of Houston. There is a long straight stretch before you climb a small long hill on Highway #16 which takes you right into the town of Houston. While traveling on this straight part of the Highway the witnesses passed the local golf course, looking straight in front of them and a little to their right, sits Mount Harry Davis.

On top of the mountain there sits the VOR (Visual Omni Range), at this point on the drive both men watched a large bright, white object rise from the VOR vertically into the air. They wondered if it might have been a helicopter with one bright light on it, but they soon ruled this out due to what the object did next. When the light/object reached a certain point in the night sky, it split into two balls of light and each ball of light "shot" off at an incredible rate of speed in different direction. The witnesses were so surprised that they stopped their truck in the middle of the highway, flew open their doors and stood watching this event unfold.

Both men started looking at one another wondering what it was they just witnessed as it was so very unusual.

They were so curious to know what was up at the top of the mountain, plus they wanted to look around for any sign that something may have been there, that shouldn't have been, they drove up the winding road on Mount Harry Davis and finally reached the VOR on top of the mountain. Nothing unusual was noted around the area, but they sure were baffled at what they saw the night before.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
