Sighting Report
Occurred : 4/14/2003 23:20 (Entered as : 4/14/03 23:20)
Reported: 4/18/2003 10:15:57 AM 10:15
Posted: 4/22/2003
Location: Houston (Canada), BC
Shape: Light
Duration:5 to 6 seconds
Single red light low over China Nose Mountain

A witness called to say while driving home from Perow, B.C. to Houston they witnessed a single red light flying rather quickly from the east heading west and very low. She told me that the red light was flying just over the top of China Nose Mountain. Actually a one point from her location, she watched the light fly over the tops of the mountains, but she claims that when it almost reached China Nose Mountain it rose up rather quickly to get over the peak and continued on at the same altitude after rising up to get over China Nose until she lost sight of it. This sighting lasted approx: 5 to 6 seconds. Just a dot of red light.

(HBCC UFO Note: I know exactly where she was when she observed the light, and you overlook the valley below and have great view of the mountains across the valley from Highway #16. The Bulkley River and a lot of farm land is below in the valley. I did some quick checking and as far as I know, no flights would have been around that area at that time. If it was a small personal aircraft the person flying it would have been crazy to fly in that area, or to be honest any other area around here at this time of night and flying so low. So what this was, is anyone's guess. Mind you I have had a number of reports just like this coming from local residents over the past years. One other comment I will make on this report. Due to the view she would have had when she first saw it, the light had to have moving at a extremly fast rate of speed. The view of the mountains she was looking toward, you can see for miles and miles from her location on the highway. I would certainly rule out a small aircraft in this case.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
