Do not have much time here, Christmas eve, gotta go, but yesterday, my fiance and I saw about 1000 feet away, above 120 foot tall old fir trees, in a fielf beside a busy highway, a long shiny silver, with a big bevel machine NOT MOVING with a row of lights, blue ones on both ends.

I have not yet phoned this into the Canadian military. I was driving, could not pull off of highway, found a turnaround, went back and it was gone. I saw an airplane in the area later, a commercial flight which was a plane, and I know very well what an airplane looks like so I could see that it was a plane, and what I saw was awe inspiring.

It was the classic space ship out of a movie. I do not drink, take drugs, smoke or drink coffee. I am a rock musician, not looking or thinking about UFOs. I don't read about this stuff or follow holywood accounts, but i just did a quick google search, saw things that are not what I saw, and I don't want to confuse the image that is in my mind, so I am not looking at any pictures for a while. I have no reason on earth to BS about this.

I will report this to our local government people and see if any other people on the hoghway took a decent look, although they were in a 90km zone and right on my tail, driving quite agrresivly, so I could not pull over.

Drag that i didn't see it when I was walking, cos it took my breath away! but it is a long straight stretch of highway where people don't really walk, farms outside of town area. Our city has 70 000 people on Vancouver island on the coast. great city. Gotta go, EMAIl me if this is of any interest. thank you.

Gogo---sorry not a better report gotta Christmas shop NOW
