Duration:12 seconds
I think I saw a UFO over Vancouver city on June 16th at 11:05 p.m. I came home from work and was closing my blinds on my window that faces North and I saw a single blue light traveling very slow towards the east. Then it got slower and slower, almost a complete stop, that's when I opened my window to see if I could hear any sound and I couldn't. Then it flashed a big bright white, yellowish light and made a sharp left turn and moved faster towards the North, the light fading as it moved. I lost sight of it over the high buildings in the downtown area. Do you know of any aircraft that has this kind of lighting and can move like that? I would appreciate any information that you might have.

Thanks "Addition Information" I should tell you that I first spotted it when I was in a taxi cab on my way home from work. I just glance up and saw this blue light and before I could take a better look we took a turn and It was above us so the roof of the cab blocked the view. It was just above Granville bridge as high as a small plane that's why I took it to be a plane and didn't think about again until I came home and saw it again through my window and it was moving from the west going towards the east.

2. I remember really taking a good look at this light moving and trying to make out any shape against the dark sky and thought that I did see something besides this light like a shape but couldn't make it out and it also seemed to have a very tiny faint light in front of the blue light but I'm not sure about that I would say I watched it for about 7 seconds before it turned bright and turned, then another 5 seconds watching it fade and move towards the North.

3. Yes I would say pea size when blue but it expanded when it flashed bright and at that time it would be dime size and then back to pea size when it move away.

4. Altitude would be the same as a small plane. The same altitude of the planes when the Symphony of fireworks are here. Ten thousand feet? 5. No one else was with me in my apartment at the time and when I was in the cab I didn't ask the cab driver to look because he was driving and I thought it was a plane. Surely someone else in the downtown area saw it too. People on their balconies facing it would see it but would they say report it? I don't know.
