1994 Sighting in Vancouver, B.C.

One evening, I was letting our puppy out ((deleted)) before going to bed. I was outside monitoring him ((deleted)) and I happen to glance up in the sky to check out the weather. It was a clear night and going over the house, at a moderate speed was a HUGE triangular shaped object. It was going in a North Westerly direction.

I knew it was a triangle as it had three white lights on each of the three points. At the base of triangle (in the middle) there were two red lights. The lights did not flash nor blink and were on constantly. No other features could be seen.

What was interesting about this vehicle, along with the massive size, was the fact that as it flew over the house, it did not make any kind of noise at all. As I observed the craft going overhead, I looked around the sky and noticed off to the South West a small plane flying in a North Easterly direction. I am not sure how far the plane was away but I could hear its engine running. I could also make out the flashing strobe on the small plane as well as the red and green port and starboard lights.

The next morning, I told my wife (she was working nights on the night in question and wasnt home and I also told our neighbors who lived in the upper part of the house...they too were not home at the time otherwise I would have called them out to witness themselves).

A couple of years later, I was watching the television show "Unsolved Mysteries" on NBC and they ran a segment on some sightings in Vancouver...a local radio talk show host had seen some strange flying objects in the sky and had mentioned it the next day on his show - he received quite a few calls into his show from other witnesses. I remember commenting with a great deal of excitement to my wife that I was certain that that was the same sighting I had seen though I couldnt remember the specific dates.

I have told numerous people over the years and most are interested in the sighting. No one has ever been critical or made fun of my story...I think that bodes positively for my reputation. I have thought often about filing an official report but didnt know where and eventually, I considered the time lag too much to report.

While still living at the address where the sighting was, I used to watch large airliners go overhead...they could clearly be heard and were substantially smaller then what I saw flying overhead. To this day, if I hear an airliner flying overhead (if the weather is clear) I will have a look; I always think back to the sighting and marvel at the difference in sizes.

I dont want my personal information to be released - thank you.
