Posted: 2/24/2001
Location: Fort Nelson (Canada), BC
Shape: Fireball
Duration:15 min.
It was about 11:30 pm, A friend and I were on our way to attend a collage course in B.C.. We saw what looked like 3 round large balls of light levetating in the air.The biggest one was on top,it looked like it was very hot in color, a very bright white, the next one was under that one and it looked like the color of fire yellow, then the next one was under that one, it looked like it was fire red/yellow. All three were equally spaced apart what looked like about 30 to 60 feet apart. The biggest one looked to be about 50 to 60 feet in diameter, the next one down was about 35 to 25 feet in diameter, and the small one was the closest one to the ground, it looked to be about 15 to 20 feet in diameter and was about 60 feet off the ground. They all just hung in the air with no sound, but very bright.As I drove faster to get closer to them, I got about 200 ft from them and they all just disappeared. As we drove further, we seen what looked like a very large white oval light ahead of us maybe 1/4 mile. I then stoped the car, turned off the car lights, and shut off the car as not to disturb whatever it was.My friend and I watched it for about 5 min. then it started to move very slow but started to go faster and started to pickup speed. Then it took off real fast and left a long trail behind that looked like the same shape and it stayed white for some time. It looked like what your hand would look like as you passed it in front of you fast.We drove to Watson Lake and reported it to the R.C.M.P. as a UFO sighting. My friend is a Pentecostal Minister for 20 years, he is about 54 years old, and I am 52 years old myself now. All the round balls were glowing like a electric welder, "a pulsating-light."

((CORRESPONDENCE FROM WITNESS))

Peter,

This is the reply I just got back from the other person thats now living in ((deleted)), about the report I sent him today. He had never seen the report before this.

Just thought I'd pass it along to verify the report.

Hi ((name deleted))!

I remember that incident just as plain as it happened yesterday. It is hard to beleive that was over 10 years ago. Where has all the time gone?

I still don't know what it could have been. It is thought provoking that it made its appreance in a wild and remote part of British Colombia. Almost as if it didn't want to be seen. Perhaps we will never know just what it was? And again, maybe we will. Anyway, it is something we can tell our grand kid's about.
