In late August 2014 I was awake between 2 and 4 in the morning. I was in
bed when it started to vibrate slowly. I got thinking a low magnitude
earthquake was happening in Nelson or a large one was occurring on the west
coast. I was looking out the window when an object flew over the roof of
the building next door. It was the size of a large football was brightly
lit up or it was heat radiating from its surface as the light was a bright
Another night I was out from 6:30 in the evening to 2 a.m. About 11 p.m. I
saw a brightly lit aircraft flying from the northwest to the southeast.
This is a similar sighting to what I described in a previous article I
wrote for UFO Digest a few years ago. As this evening progressed I saw a
small aircraft, with a flashing green light, circling Nelson a few times.
Several times a few of us have heard a heavy rumbling of an engine
overhead. This night I heard the jet engine above me then I saw it flying
at a very slow speed almost at a dead stop. It was heading northwest.
Three weeks later before I noticed some more sky sightings. My shift as a
security guard had ended at 11 p.m. so I headed down to the lakeshore. I
had a feeling I was about to see some activity. About a hour later I did
see the same green flashing light circling Nelson in a clockwise manner. It
may have been a Cessna but I couldn’t hear a noise coming from it. At the
same time I saw two flashes over Nelson, it reminded me of something taking
camera pictures of Nelson from the sky. Next night I went out just after
sunset to see what would be seen. The only incident was a jet flying
overhead at a higher level than I did three weeks previously at only a
slight increase in speed, heading northwest. Several of us are wondering
what this jet is all about and what its doings are.
More to come in the future as the skies in the West Kootenays are active.
