Location: McKenzie (Canada), BC
Duration:approx: 3 to 4 seconds
|Bright flash of white light .
A single witness, a logging truck operator was coming back from picking up a load of logs when we reported to me, seeing a bright flash of white light directly in front of him at a fairly high altitude. When it caught his attention he watched the light heading in a northwesterly direction, from his location towards the south end of Williston Lake. His thoughts were that whatever it was, was a meteor as he said he sees a number of them while working in so many darkened hours. What the witness found strange about the sighting was before the light disappeared it changed direction slightly. After this change in it's flight path, he said it was gone. Just vanished. The sighting lasted approx: no more than 3 to 4 seconds. At arms length he said the light may have been the size of a pea. No sound was heard coming from the light, but this would be no surprise anyway due to him being in the cab of his truck, and they can be rather noisy. He wondered if I had any other reports of this type on the day. (HBCC UFO Note: I am not aware of any other reports from the area where this took place, but if anyone should have had a sighting on the day in question, and around the time provided above I would appreciate hearing from you.
Thank you to the witness for his report.
