Shape: Formation
Duration:5 minutes
Formation of lights in shape of Great Bear Star System moving west above Port Angelos.

Was sitting on a seat overlooking Juan De Fuca Strait from Victoria. Was looking towards Port Angelos and saw a configuration of lights moving west that was approximately in the shape of the Great Bear Star System. This configuration of lights was moving towards the west at about 1 degree of angle per second and because it was directly over Port Angelos about 1 degree above the city center.

Because the whole configuration was moving in a united fashion with the shape of the configuration not changing I don't think I was confusing the lights with those of moving vehicles. This lasted about 5 minutes and fortunately I had 8 power magnification binoculars with me so I checked by examining the configuration through my binoculars.

Being very jubilant I proceeded back to my condo on the 23rd floor of Orchard House, Victoria, and went out on the balcony. This was about 25 minutes later than the first sightings. I sensed three consective flashes of light originating from the sky S.S.W. and about 30 degrees above the horizon. I sensed at the same time as these flashes a subtle current going through my body. Was expecting a ship to appear but was disappointed that one didn't.
