Location: Vernon (Canada), BC
Shape: Light
Duration: 20 minutes
Characteristics: The object changed color
Hi Brian December 3 at 4:45 p.m. the bright white light appeared over the hill south of the airport. The sky was clear after sunset. It hovered and sparkled. A red sphere flashed by going south. My neighbor came out on his balcony for a cigarette. The white light hovered. When he went in it started it's vertical decent. It went down very slowly a bit at a time until it disappeared in the trees, at 500 p.m.

It is difficult to describe the light. In the binoculars it has strobing red and other colours but white is the predominant one. It is white hot like a sparkler and hard to tell size or shape. I find it hard to believe that no one else has reported this as it is predominant in the sw sky and by the airport. It went down just before a jet landed. There is a population density around the airport and surrounding hills, and again I can't be the only one who sees this.

The behavior of the light suggests that some people at a glance would view it as a star or a one spotlight plane on approach. It makes no sudden moves, as it moves in increments. This is a wonder-full event, lasting 20 minutes, from when I start viewing it.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
