Location: New Denver (Canada), BC
Shape: Circle
Duration: 20 minutes
A red glowing circle was sited above the top of a mountain just North of the New Denver Glacier in the west Kootenays in B.C. on the 2

We were walking last evening down the road to the village park in New Denver. The sky was very bright from the full moon. I could see the lake in front of me and the mountains across the lake. The mountains are the Valhalla mountains. I saw a bright red circle just above the mountain peak North East of the New Denver glacier. I walk this way almost every night but had never seen this before. I know the usual planets that are in the sky and this was not where there is a planet. The circle was not moving, just hanging in the sky. The circle was very red and bright. This is a very high mountain range that has been designated a Federal wildlife park. You can only get there by boat or helicopter. I can't imagine anyone would be up on a rugged mountain top in this much snow. There are no roads. The circle was not attached to the ground.

My friend tried to take a picture but didn't think it would show up because of the light of the moon. This circle was bigger than the stars, and much brighter and closer. The lake is 3/4 of a mile across at this point and the mountain starts rising not too far from the shore. We looked at the circle for about 20 minutes and then it disappeared suddenly. Just wasn't there any more.

A minute or so before it disappeared, I saw what looked like a satellite pass over to the north of the circle quite a ways away. I feel there might be pictures that were taken by the satellite as it was quite close.
