3 Orange Lights Hovering In The Sky Over Salmon Arm British Columbia

Date:  First part of January 2014
Time:  Evening.

I can't get it out of my head, I saw 3 orange lights, here in Salmon Arm. It was a couple weeks ago and they were just hovering and in a row, in the night sky.

I was looking out the windshield trying to see better. I decided to pull over to get out and look because it was so bizarre, and they had disappeared. I could tell they weren't airplanes or helicopters.

Large Star Like Object Seen In The Sky Over Brentwood Bay British Columbia

 We live in Brentwood Bay, British Columbia a few blocks from the water. We have often seen a strange light that resembles a star. The first time was after church during Easter week one evening about 15 years ago. I was looking out towards Willis point and noticed a star-like light and told my oldest daughter to take a look.

She said maybe it was the "American star", but I replied it was to low over the mountain. After five minutes or so it started to move north over the Malahat. I quickly phoned my sister in-law for them to take a look through their telescope.

Once the light reached the area of possibly Mill Bay it started to fly southeast towards us on an angle. It flew over our house so low I thought it was going to crash. It was a huge plane like shape, black other than the lights, made some noise, but not enough that I couldn't hear who I was speaking to on the phone.

It was flying slow enough that when it flew over our home I had enough time to run from our back patio to front and still see it flying over our home. I was totally amazed. I later heard of someone else seeing it and they thought it was going to crash in the fields on the top of Stellys X Road.

Since then we often see strange lights, maybe because we are looking for them? Last summer about 20 of us saw a lighted rocket fly by and incredible speed. Lots of action around the bay!

Huge Glowing Red Bright UFO With Fluorescent Laser Beams Seen Over Aldergrove British Columbia

 Date:  July 18, 2014
Time:  Approx: 10:30 p.m.

My name is (name removed). I’m 42 single mom of 17 year old and a care aide for elderly.

My daughter and I saw something I have never seen before. A huge glowing red bright white in center with red fluorescent light type laser beams extending from all sides. The thing hovered like that by transformers on telephone pole.

My daughter came to see after she heard me say holy s***. She then walked to window with me and we both watched it hovering then the red light beams retracted and bright white center light faded as it folded in upon itself and became a small metal object and it blinked twice and disappeared.

It was the height of the transformers and width was probably have the height of telephone pole. The many laser types lights that were coming out from all directions  and were different lengths, but all were in straight line.

It retracted these beams into itself and compacted its size into a smaller yellow/silver metal object that blinked twice before disappearing. We were to mesmerized to take a picture. I’m beside myself trying to figure out what I saw.

Do you have any suggestions to what I can do next?

I did report to local RCMP at time, but I was laughed at and it kind of has been interesting, yet kind of frightening as I know humans do not have this kind of technology.

Stream Of Red And Blue Lights Seen In The Sky Between Summerland And Penticton British Columbia

 Date:  May 31, 2014
Time:  Approx: 9:40 p.m.

Hey Brian, I was just looking around the internet to see if anyone saw what we saw tonight and came across your email.

We were driving from Summerland to Penticton (me and my mom) and this stream of red and blue lights caught my attention right out my side window. It was so quick, but it looked like it had turned or something so the first glimpse we saw looked like a u.  

Kind of shot across right above the lake.  We pulled over to watch and at first I thought it was just flying towards Kelowna, but it sure looked like it was actually going straight up until it was just a speck of light, like a star.

My mom thinks it was small, like a toy aircraft, but I doubt they could fly that far away or that fast and the light steak we saw looked pretty thick.

Any ideas? We are thinking there is no way we are the only ones that saw it, but to see it out my side window like that. In front of the mountain it must have been pretty close to the ground.

Eeek. We don't know.

Would love to hear from you. Was about 9:40 p.m.

Alien Abduction ? Strange Marks On The Body Vancouver British Columbia Canada (Picture)

 Date:  April 14, 2014

Dear Mr. Vike, on the morning of April 14, 2014 I got out of bed and went to my washroom. The first thing I noticed were these marks on my left upper shoulder. I have sent you a copy.

Normally, I would dismiss this sort of thing as something that had been on my bed that I had slept on. There was nothing on my bed or in my room. I also would suggest that perhaps I had leaned against something the previous day, but there was no pain and the marks stayed for at least ten days.

There was no diminishing for at least a week, so I thought it very odd. I also thoroughly checked my workplace for something of this pattern... again, nothing.

 I Googled some images and much to my amusement, the first image I found was very similar. Your name came up and as I'm in Vancouver, I thought I'd see if you'd have any use for the information or maybe some insight.

I suppose you could call me a skeptical believer. I have had several 'sightings' of things I couldn't rationally explain, but I try to keep a level and open mind. I've seen too much to discount anything.

Two Extremely Bright Orange UFOs/Lights Over Quesnel British Columbia Canada

 Date:  July 12, 2014

Dear Brian Vike, I just saw a UFO in Quesnel B.C. Time: 11:30. 2 Bright Orange (really bright) floating almost very close to each other then disappearing in the same area.

I always believed in this phenomenon and my heart is still beating from the sighting. Would love to chat with you.

Thank you.

Rectangular UFO Chases Witnesses In Their Vehicle And Missing Time In Comox Vancouver Island British Columbia

Date:  August 2006
Time:  Approx: 8:45 p.m.

My friend and I were driving to Comox to see my new place and help me take my boat there. We took the old Comox main logging road at the end of Inland Hwy. from Campbell River shell.

We went, saw (maybe 1/2 hour) and came straight back at around 8:45 p.m. on the same road. It takes roughly 45 minuets. On the way back, however, about 1/2 hour back home, an enormous light lit up the entire forest like a bright summer day.

Then a flashing flying object appeared over the tree-line and started moving toward us. The object appeared to be rectangular. Flashing was very bright and very fast. (Two white lights on each end, two red or deep orange just inside of those.)

The object made no sound whatsoever and moved with propulsion obviously not characteristic of a plane (except a Harrier (lol) or helicopter.

I asked my friend "are you seeing this, too?" He was already staring out the back window of the small pickup, not saying much, except "yes".

The object continued toward us until approximately 10-15m. away. I panicked and told my friend, "hold on!" and tried to drive away at speeds up to 120kph. - failing to gain even a single inch. No matter if cornering or straight.

It maintained a position of seemingly exactly the same distance and orientation from us, no matter how fast or slow I drove.

Then neither I nor my friend remember what happened after it was tracking us. We don't remember it leaving or what we decided to do next, or driving home.

When we got home, our significant others and family were upset with us for arriving home at 12:30 a.m.!

The next day, I realized that my $1,300 Seiko kinetic auto-relay, guaranteed not to lose more than a second in 120 years was roughly 2.5 hours behind!

It had never lost a second before, and never has since. Anyways, always been kind of too freaked out to talk about it. This is the first I've shared.

Thank you very much for reading.

UFO Looked Like A Large Blue Glow Stick Observed Over Enderby British Columbia Canada

 Date:  June 21, 2014
Time:  11:25 p.m. to 11:32 p.m.

Hi, we saw something in the sky the other night. My brother-in-law messaged me and told me to look up. So my husband and I went outside and flying over head was a light. It looked like a big blue glow stick in colour.

We ran in to tell the kids to come out. As we watched it, it changed colours at least 3 others. It did circles, went up and down. It didn't move like normal things we know.

It was completely silent! It also had a huge range, it was kind of hard to tell how high it was, but it seemed to be as high as an ultralight would be. It flew out towards the mountain and I thought it was going to go over and disappear, but it wasn't that high because then it turned and scaled the mountain ridge and came back to town.

Then it went down out of sight, it looked like it could've landed in a field from where we were. It was very cool!

I know at least 10 other people who saw it. That was Saturday night, June 21 2014. According to my Facebook messages and updates it was 11:25 p.m. first sighting to 11:32 p.m. lost sight.

We are from Enderby B.C. Canada.

Also, that's the second time my brother-in-law saw it, he said the first time was a couple weeks ago same time of night. I did take a picture on my phone and record it, but not until after I ran in to tell the kids and it was already going further away by the time I thought of it.

If I see it again, I will definitely try to get a better clip! Have you had any other reports like that? Thanks.

Green Colored Glowing Ball/UFO Makes Strange Maneuvers Over Prince George British Columbia

 Date:  July 1, 2014
Time:  Evening.

Hey Brian, I was curious if any reports have come. In about last night I was looking out my window to see the Canada Day fireworks, but I couldn't see them, however I noticed a green ball glowing in the sky.

At first I thought it was a stray firework, but it stayed there for a minute or so before rising up at quite a fast speed then came to a complete stop, I called my wife to come see it. It just sat there in the same place until the fireworks ended.

It then went down, made a 90 degree turn right then moved back left, then back to the middle where it started, then down to the ground then back up and then it moved behind the tree line.

All I had for a recording device was my phone. It would have been such poor quality I decided I'd rather just watch it through my eyes than waste seeing this thing through my phone in blurry images.

I see on the net all the time anyways. Anyways any feed back would be nice thank you. Oh I forgot to tell you I live in Prince George, British Columbia.

That’s right: If the truth is out there, Vancouver is probably a good place to find it.

There were 116 UFO sightings reported in the city last year alone, with the average encounter lasting 13 minutes.

UFOs Filled The Skies Over Northern British Columbia – Hundreds Of Eyewitnesses File Reports

If you care to write to Brian Vike, he can be reached at 3 different email addresses. Brian’s most used email today is at, also he still has his old email address, as this address went along with a huge website Brian built up and ran until 2009. Also, one other address is

Do keep in mind, Brian did retire, but he is working on a very large report on the amazing UFO flap which took place over British Columbia, Canada back in 2002 and 2003.

Everything from Cattle Mutes, Crop Circles, Triangle Craft, Alien abductions and some of the most amazing UFO sightings to have been reported. Large cases involving numerous witnesses, 200 people for one case alone. UFOs hitting the water, only to lift back up out of the water and battle it out with another unknown craft.  Reports never stopped pouring in, for Brian, it was one of the busiest times to be a UFO investigator.

Also some really interesting UFO footage which still remains a mystery to this day, and the experts have tried to figure out what the object/objects are in the video footage. The media went wild over what was happening in the skies up north. Most of all the cases remain unsolved.

If anyone has a British Columbia UFO sighting, no matter where or when the sighting took place on, please do drop Brian a line as he does want to know if there could be a relationship with other sighting reports he received all across this large, and beautiful province. Also the reports will be sent to B.C. investigators to be dealt with. Of course, Brian will do some checking as well behind the scene.

Since I, Brian Vike am not investigating UFO sightings anymore I made arrangements to have others look into the sightings that still come into me.

There is an excellent UFO group called UFO*BC which looks into/investigates UFO sightings for the province of British Columbia, Canada and the Yukon only.

The fellows have years of experience dealing with the unknown and would appreciate receiving any sighting reports for these two areas.

You can find UFO*BC’s website at and they have a online sighting report form you can use to file your experience to them, this can be found at:

Also click on the UFO*BC’s image below which takes you directly to their website.

From Brian Vike Retired UFO Investigator - Merry Christmas And I Hope You All Have A Wonderful New Year

 Well I have to say I am enjoying all the free time I have on my hands. I do miss looking into the UFO cases that came in, but honestly I started giving up the passion I once had for the topic. This was mainly due to the amount of sighting reports that were coming in before I pulled the plug.

I always believed If people are kind enough to write up their sighting report and send it along, then I should most certainly reply and do some checking into the sightings that have a little more meat to them. It finally got to the point where so much was pouring into the inbox, I through my hands up and said to heck with this.

Last January 2013 just a hair over 700 sighting reports came in for that month. Plus health issues had me thinking it was time to quit. So I did.

Since I packed it in, sighting reports still rolled in, not near as much as I once was receiving, but still a lot of sighting reports. What I did with these reports was to send them directly to William “Bill” Puckett in the United States for the American sightings.

Bill can be found at: UFOs Northwest and then all the Canadian sighting reports I received went directly to Chris Rutkowski at: Ufology Research of Manitoba

From there I started playing computer games. –:

Anyway, over the years in my province of British Columbia, Canada there was a major UFO wave that took take place in 2002 and 2003 with sightings of all kinds of odd UFOs being witnessed by one person, up to over 200 people who observed one huge UFO event. What I have decided to do is to write up a large detailed report on the two years of amazing sightings and I will post the report later in 2014.

Other than that, I will be sitting back and reading what others are reporting. Again I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and all the best in the coming New Year.

Posted:  October 24, 2013

Important Notice: Brian Vike, Canadian UFO investigator and owner of “The Vike Factor”, “The Vike Report Radio Show" and editor of the “Canadian Communicator Magazine” and past owner of HBCC UFO Research has been re-posting his large UFO cases on the main blog.

A lot of these cases have audio reports (telephone interviews Brian Vike did with eyewitnesses) which can give a lot more detail to a UFO sighting than just the text report.

From the two year major UFO flap in British Columbia and other large cases all across Canada, the United States and Worldwide, Brian Vike brings sighting reports of unusual lights, saucer shaped UFOs, gigantic football sized Black Triangle craft, military sightings around sensitive bases and on and on it goes.

Brian received “thousands” of sighting reports over the years and so many of them turned out to be amazing cases.

All of these reports are now being posted and can be found at: 

I thank everyone who filed their sighting as they were all so very interesting.
