Shape: Cigar
Duration: 3 Minutes
Time I saw object: 19.04 Hours, September 7th 2005.

I'm one of those unfortunates or fortunes to see many of these things in my life. I don't always report them to your center but today I will as this one was not a quick 30 second thing - blink of the eye and then it's gone.

I went for a jog in the Point Grey area here in Vancouver, very close the beach, when on my return towards my home, I saw what I thought was a plane, I'm quite observant of the sky. Then I realized that it wasn't a plane. Then I thought it looked like a blimp. A telephone company here in Canada uses one quite frequently here in the Lower Mainland for advertising purposes, but quickly I realized that it was simply too high up in the air for anyone to see it with the writing and logos on it. Then I thought, oh no, here we go again. I watched the object for about 3 minutes maybe a bit longer. It was located in the south sky and the visibility is excellent. Object appeared to be heading towards to USA and climbing higher upwards. Colour white. Solid Object. Moved slowly. Not planes in the sky from where I'm stood.

I obviously stopped jogging to gain a beter look at this object and I was simply courious if this passing stranger could see this object as well. I asked a stranger "Do you have good eye sight"? and asked her if she could see "that object in the sky". She said yes.

PS. Last night Sept. 6th 2005, as I was walking home from a video store with my boyfriend, we happened to see a bright light in the north sky get bright and then retract very quickly. We couldn't see any traces or trail of anything like a plane in the general vicinity in the sky such as when a plane may be glarring it's front headlights and then turn, this wasn't quite the same. He was about as puzzled as I was. Just thought I'd mention last nights oddity in case anyone else in Vancouver, B.C, or North Vancouver saw this bright light. This light was after night had fell I would estimate the time we saw it to be around 9.30 ish PM.
