Victoria, BC: (8:30 - 9:30 pm)
A man and his wife were at the gazebo
in the University of Victoria, a favourite viewing spot for them. They were
looking eastward across the Straits of Juan De Fuca, towards Vancouver, when
they saw a bright light, the colour of fire, indulge in high speed erratic
motions. They watched it
for about 8 minutes before it disappeared into the ocean (?) or landed
(?). The light was 1/2 the size of a dime held at arm's length.
A few minutes later, another fiery
object appeared in the same spot and "danced" around the sky in an
identical manner. After about 8 minutes, this object also disappeared in a
similar manner. This object appeared to be more of a triangular shape.
A little later, a third yellow/gold
object appeared and repeated the antics of the two previous objects. This one
was also around for about 8 minutes before disappearing in the same spot.
In January of 1999, the same couple
saw a vertical beam of lightning (?) appear from the same location and
beam skywards. It was only in view "for a millisecond".
