|shiny smoothly object in clear sky above Victoria BC, Canada spotted by at least 3 people
Before I went shopping on this shiny day I dropped some garbage in the litter box outside of our appartment building. I met the neighbour and she said she saw some objects in the sky moving very fast and then stand still and then moving again. I looked up the sky and saw nothing. She said that they went behind a cloud. I thought she was crazy because the clouds I saw were like a thin veil.... I joked that we were probably infaded by aliens. She repeated that they were moving very fast. I walked back into the appartment building and went out the other side to walk to the grocery store with my fiancee. I talked about it with her and on Fort street we looked up the sky and there was one of them... a shiny, smoothly moving object, no wings, no bird.... it was really strange. My fiancee saw it as well and couldn't really figure out what the shape was (we saw it for approx 15 secs). I didn't meet my neighbour again today, but I will definitely ask her some questions because she must have seen it for a longer period of time. I also called the police short of the spotting, but they didn't have other callers yet that spotted this event. On the radio there were no reports. On our way back from the grocery store we saw some people (3) with a video camera taping the sky, but if they were taping a telephone pole or the sky wasn't clear to us and we didn't ask because they were on the other side of the busy street. In the direction they were pointing their camera was nothing to see. My fiancee was joking that the Americans were keeping an eye on us. I kept looking on our way back, but didn't see it again, nor did I see my neigbour. (As soon as I have more info I will add that here).
((NUFORC Note: We will request a report from the fiancee, as well. NUFORC has received a number of reports like this one, in recent months. PD))
