Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
White bright round light - hovering for a few minutes then disappearing.

On or about August 30, 2000 my boyfriend and I were driving westbound just south of Abbotsford Airport, Abbotsford, British Columbia. On the horizon, in front of us and just to the right of the airport runway we noticed a bright light in the sky. My boyfriend and I thought that a large plane was coming in for a landing. This bright light which looked to be about two to three miles away remained in the same position in the sky. The light did not get closer or move away. It just hovered there. I drove faster trying to get closer to this object in the sky and then it disappeared. In both of our minds, this was not a plane, or a balloon, or a satelite, or a helicopter. The light was brighter than the landing lights of a jet or helicopter. In both of our minds this was certainly an unidentified object.
