Strange sighting in Dashwood

Dashwood residents are abuzz about the latest odd sighting in the area — but this time it wasn't a monkey.

Brian Vike, a UFO researcher in Houston, B.C. said he received a report of a strange light from a resident on Feb. 6.

"I woke suddenly because my bedroom was lit up fluorescent greenish," the report said. "I went to the bathroom then to the window as the light faded away to nothing. I can't explain if it was coming from the ground or sky. It was very odd it was approximately over the highway in Dashwood right at Larkdown road."

Vike said the light could have come from a flare, but suggested it could have come from a meteor. If that's the case, it won't be unusual — at least, not this year. "I have received so many reports of meteors and fireballs this year it isn't funny," Vike said. "There has been just a stack of them from across Canada and the United States."
