Rash of UFO sightings continues over central Island

No explanation for series of strange sightings in the night sky

The sightings of strange, unidientified objects flying over central Vancouver Island continue to pour in, says B.C. UFO researcher Brian Vike.

The latest sighting, he said, was spotted over French Creek on Oct. 13, just after midnight.

The witness, whose identity Vike keeps in strict confidence, said she was laying in bed with her eyes closed at about 12:15 a.m.

“For some reason, I opened my eyes, perhaps because the bedroom was lit up with a very bright light, florescent, but different — brighter — coming through the closed blinds,” he witness said. “There was no moon and it was raining. I have a large vacant area on the south side of my house and went to look out that window. Then the light went out.”

The witness checked with neighbours, but found none of them had been awake at the time.

Vike noted a Nanaimo resident had a similarly odd experience on Sept. 25, again, shortly after midnight.

“I woke up, looked at the clock and rolled over, looking outside. I’d only been asleep for just over an hour. The moon was positively brilliant, and as I looked closer, I realized it looked very odd,” the witness reported. “It looked huge, very close, and just above the tree-line. The bottom part wasn’t visible behind the trees. the top part appeared to be hiding behind clouds, too, and it wasn’t reflecting light, it looked like a huge spotlight, or maybe two or three lights in a horizontal row, but huge lights.”

Although the witness later thought it was just a combination of a bright moon and a tired mind. However, two days later the witness looked out the window again and got a bit of a shock.

“I got up at 5 a.m. to get ready for work and was stunned to see the moon in about the same position, vertically, that I had seen it two days before at 12:30 at night, except much higher in the sky,” the report said.

“There is just no way that the course of the moon is going to change like that. I have to say that the object I saw originally was not the moon.”

The witness, who had never reported anything like this before, contacted Vike in an attempt to see if anyone else saw something similar.

“This has been bothering me enough for the past few days that I’m submitting this sighting in hopes that someone else might come forward to say they saw the same thing,” the witness said. “I’d really like to know what I saw.”

If you have seen anything like this in the same area you can contact Brian Vike at: sighting@telus.net with the details of your sighting.

All personal information involved with these sightings is kept strictly confidential.
