Report Three - Remarkable UFO Wave Continues Over British Columbia Canada (UFO Investigator Brian Vike)

UFO Encounter On Highway 16 - Three Frightened Women
By Brian Vike

Location: 3 Kilometers east of Telkwa, British Columbia, Canada on highway #16

Viewing Time: Approximately 90 seconds.
Weather Conditions: Overcast.

Woodmere UFO Sighting: Brian Vike was contacted by a friend who told me about three ladies who went to Smithers, British Columbia, Canada for a days shopping.

Once the outing  was over, the ladies left Smithers at approximately 8:45 p.m. Friday night, February 1, 2002 on their way home to Houston, British Columbia.

It was a dark and overcast night as they traveled the 45 minutes back to Houston on highway 16 heading east. After passing through the small community of Telkwa, British Columbia just 3 kilometers east they all noticed a very bright intense light glowing through the overcast sky.

While they watched the light in the distance, their thoughts were that it was the moon shining through, they gasped as this alien craft poked slowly through the cloud cover descending as it drew closer in their direction.

The witnesses were traveling at a speed of 90 kilometers per hour with the glowing object coming toward them. One of the ladies thought it may be a bomb or something, as she remembered the world terrorist events of recent times. The glowing craft dropped down a head of them just above the tree tops, still moving in their direction and getting closer to the highway.

The closer the light came to them, the larger it grew in size. As the seconds passed, all three witnesses became curious, but frightened as to what this was and had slowed the car to approximately 50 kilometers per hour to get a better look.

The object was almost above the vehicle. The driver of the car stepped on the gas and sped up to put some distance between them and the craft which now turned out to be a "huge" craft. One of the ladies who was sitting in the back seat of the small car turned around and laid her back over the console between the driver and passengers seat, watching the object as it passed over the car.

This witness who was looking up as it passed overhead of the vehicle said, there were 7 very large, bright white lights passing over head with two orange lights at either end. Very shaken, nervous and cold running through them they headed quickly towards home as the object still continued along its way toward the Telkwa, British Columbia area.

They mentioned that other vehicles were on the highway and had to have seen the object due to it's size and brightness. The ladies also said that a pick up truck passed them at a good rate of speed just seconds down the road after this incident.

Investigator Brian Vike’s Note: I went to interview the three ladies on Sunday night, February 3, 2002 at a friends home. While we were discussing the encounter, one of them got a good case of the goose bumps. She said she was happy that she wasn't alone when this took place because she was so frightened not knowing what this object was.

She also noted that if she had been alone, she would never have said anything about what she witnessed due to not being believed by others. The witnesses drew a sketch of the object which passed over head. It was similar to a boomerang in shape and a "guestimate" of size would have placed this object at about 450 feet from end to end.

I also contacted newspapers and radio stations throughout the area to see if any other witnesses to this sighting had come forward, but was told no one had reported seeing any type of object that night.

I also contacted the Houston RCMP detachment asking if anyone had made a report, but was told no. They did though, take a report from me, asking for the names of the witnesses which I declined to give. I then contacted the Smithers RCMP detachment asking the same question and as far as they knew nothing had been reported to them either, but the receptionist asked me if a constable could contact me to get more information on this sighting.

An RCMP constable did call and I told him what I knew. He then asked me if I would give him some personal information about myself. I agreed, and the RCMP constable asked for my full name, weight, height, color of my eyes, hair color, drivers license number and my street number and mailing address which I was happy to give to him. He told me he had already contacted the Houston RCMP detachment and the Smithers Airport Tower asking if they had any information about what was seen on February 1, 2002.

The Smithers RCMP now has an open file on this case.

Update: This morning (February 14 2002), I checked my email and found that another good friend and excellent UFO investigator wrote telling me of a sighting which took place between January 29 and 31st of 2002 approximately 6 km east of Burns Lake, BC. So something is taking place in and around our area.

Military Exercise Taken Place: 

On February 7, 2002 we left Smithers Airport finally after having a flight to Vancouver cancelled the previous day due to bad weather. There was a low cloud ceiling and the Air Canada Dash 8-300 aircraft was not able to make a landing. But we rebooked for Thursday, February 7, 2002 to fly out of Smithers, British Columbia.

Finally the plane landed and we boarded the aircraft. The pilot's voice came over the PA announcing that the planes wings would need to be de-iced before take off.

After all was done and we taxied out onto the runway, the pilot again made an announcement informing all the passengers that we were going to have to make a "slight" detour from our planned flight to Vancouver, British Columbia.

His explanation was of military exercises were taking place "somewhere" along our flight path. Now knowing that two UFO sightings had just taken place in our area, I started to wonder if there was any connection to these incidents or was this just a routine practice planned in advance.

I asked the stewardess what the pilot meant by this minor adjustment in the flight plan and she did ask the pilot and the answer I got was that the military can call for an exercise at anytime.

After I got home from my brief holiday south, I made several phone calls to enquire about any military exercise taking place in and around British Columbia at the time we had left for Vancouver.

I contacted the military Public Affairs at Comox, British Columbia which is on Vancouver Island. I was informed that this gentleman was not aware of any type of exercises taking place at or around February 7 as I was told.

The Public Affairs Officer informed me that he could not understand why the pilot would mention any military exercises occurring as they like to keep a low profile and not interfere with public transportation.

I personally thought his statement a little strange. I then contacted the Smithers Airport flight tower and asked a few questions. I enquired if they were aware of any type of military happenings taking place on the designated flight path to Vancouver from Smithers, British Columbia. They also were not aware of anything regarding this matter. I have to say, I was getting frustrated as I knew something big had taken place and not anyone from the Smithers flight tower to the military owned up that something indeed took place.

"But", when speaking to one of the workers at the airport, I was informed that she was aware of something happening that night on February 1, 2002 as she sat with the control tower personal and they were discussing a unusual event had taken place on the same night the craft was observed.

I was told by the folks at the Smithers Flight tower that there were several locations in British Columbia which the Canadian military use for low and high level flight exercises.

There are two areas around Knight Inlet on the west coast and another which was mentioned was a 1000 square kilometer area around Antahim Lake which got close to my area.

This part of the country is east of the southern end of Tweedsmuir Park (a wilderness area).

Investigator Brian Vike’s Note: I am not stating here that there is any type of cover up, but only gathering the facts which may or may not have anything to do with these sightings early in February, 2002.

We do though need to check into any and all ideas which may lead to our military knowing something about these objects (crafts) seen by a number of creditable witnesses.

Update for the February 1, 2002 sighting – Investigator Brian Vike’s Note: There has been another witness who reported seeing something similar and very unusual on Friday, February 1, 2002.

There has been confirmation that a unknown craft was seen by others this night of February 1, 2002.

Today, Sunday, March 24, 2002 I received a telephone call from a gentleman who lives in Smithers, British Columbia who had read an article in the Smithers Interior Newspaper about some of the sightings which have taken place from Kitimat, British Columbia right through to Prince George, British Columbia.

The paper also carried my contact information so if anyone had seen anything strange and wanted to, they could at least find me to file a report for investigation.

This witness told me he had gone to rent a video from the Smithers Hollywood Video store and after he came out and got into his car and started driving down the road, something caught his eye.

He mentioned, due to the lights from the town of Smithers he could see the object rather well. He pulled his vehicle over, got out and watched it fly slowly over and around the town for approximately five minutes. He also told me he thought it was descending and his first thoughts were of a para-glider and said it was the best way he could describe what he was looking at. He also said the object had "one" bright white light on it. He mentioned the light would go bright to dim, but said he wasn't sure if this was due to the object turning.

The witness mentioned that para-gliders often flew off Hudson Bay mountain and I asked him, because of that fact, had there ever been any other sightings of the gliders, he replied "no, not at night".

I asked him if he had an idea what the size would have been of the object. He said it was hard to tell, but went on to say it would have been about the size of a para-glider if you were standing next to it. He also said the height from the ground would have been approximately 1500 feet. It slowly made turns over the town of Smithers. I also asked about the weather conditions at the time of his sighting, and he said it was overcast as did the three witnesses for the Telkwa, British Columbia sighting the same night.

The witness said he would never have mentioned his sighting to anyone as he did not know who or where to report this anyway, until he read the article in the newspaper.

Investigator Brian Vike’s Note: I was talking to some new friends (I am keeping their identity secret) and they told me that they knew for a fact that there was more than normal air traffic in and around our area after the sighting on February 1, 2002. Their source would not elaborate on what was taking place, but again said there were a number of aircraft patrolling the skies our way. I thought this was very interesting as well.

Another report was filed to me over the same incident, the boomerang craft was observed hovering over the Bulkley River in Houston, British Columbia and was witnessed by a couple of well know business people here in town. These folks also reported hearing a slight humming noise and this is what got their attention to look out the window.

After this one major event took place, throughout 2002 and 2003 triangular craft and other weird objects were seen numerous times flying low over the small towns. The reports again were from creditable people who held good jobs.

Lastly, I should point out that I heard from a person who works at the Vancouver International Airport that he and others were also aware of something happening on the night of February 1, 2002 which involved a UFO.

If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential.


Hungry Hill Between Houston And Smithers, British Columbia Canada.

Date: Early 2002.
Time:  Evening.
"My wife and I were traveling from Smithers to Houston - I think around 2001 or 2002. (she will remember)

Anyways on the way up Hungry Hill, 10 minutes from Houston, British Columbia we saw a what appeared to be a very large craft, but with very, very dim lights glowing from underneath.

We watched it for a long time as we climbed Hungry Hill, we both agreed it could not be a plane.

I remarked to my wife jokingly that the lights on the craft were so dim and he should hit his high beams.

Well just then the lights (can't remember how many) got super super bright and the craft sped off.

There were a lot of cars of the highway that night."

At this point they were near Usk, which is approximately 20 - 25 kilometers south of Terrace. The light was seen sitting close to the top, or just below the top rim of a nearby mountain.

It looked to be square in shape, very glossy and contained red, orange and yellow colours. It did not appear to be moving for the period of time that they watched it, and they heard no noise.

All of the witnesses stated that they had never seen anything like it before. On the return trip, about 4 hours later, the light was no longer there.

The witness was outside walking her dog when she saw an object just above the trees, flying slowly southwards. She estimated the object was between 30 to 40 feet in length and red in colour.

She described the object as tubular in shape, but "like a triangle". The side closest to the witness seemed to be transparent as she could see the stars through it.

At one point she considered climbing over the back fence to follow it, but as she was alone she decided it would be better not to.

She lost visual contact as the craft slowly headed south over the resident's roof tops. She heard no noise at all and the puppy did not react to it.
