I received this inquiry recently:
The first UFO sighting I had was in the winter of 1968-69. I was living with my parents in Burnaby B.C. Dad came up from the basement asking Mom and I if we wanted to see a flying saucer. We went to the dining rooom window and saw a red or orange circular object, its approximate position was over the southeast corner of Burnaby Mountain. We watched it for 10 minutes from 7:55 to 8:05 p.m. We didn't see any markings of any kind on the surface as it was entirely smooth. Regrettably we went back to watching Rowan and Martins Laugh-In. At 8:30 I went back to spot the object only to find it had gone. 30 years later I contacted UFOBC about this incident but they didn't have any records of UFO sightings going back that far. Ron
I looked around the internet and through my records and came up with the following reports:
THE SECOND VISIT
Location/Date: Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada - January 2001 - daytime
Two peculiar strangers visited the witness, who had a previous visit after a UFO encounter. These two visitors were different from the others. They were at least six-feet tall, very bony, with head, hands and feet out of proportion to the rest of the body. They wore gray suits that seemed to be "oily", had black ties and hats plus wrap around sunglasses that they never took off. When questioned about the glasses they remarked that they could see perfectly well. Their ears stood out from their heads and their skin was pale white, whereas their fingernails were gray in color. They never removed the hats during their visit. Throughout the visit only one of them spoke. When asked for ID's they displayed "silver" cases that contained a photo, an unusual symbol, plus their names in small print.
Upon entering the kitchen they asked the witness to please unplug the microwave, they also told him to turn the computer off. The two Persian cats were going crazy dashing around the room and trying to get out of the window, which was closed. Each man carried a briefcase with an inverted L shaped handle. The man that did all the talking asked to see the witness' unusual watch. He then removed from his briefcase four small containers, each had a different colored top. Opening two, he proceeded to pour the contents over the watch. He told the concerned witness that no harm would come to the watch. He was given $250 for the watch and told that they would give him the rest later. He told them that he was moving soon, to this they replied "We know...don't worry, we can find you if we want to."
They soon departed without the common courtesies, staring blankly at the witness as he extended his hand. Once again the witness hurried to the bedroom window only to find, as before, no sign of either man departing, nor could any vehicle be heard leaving. After the visit the witness felt drained, had a severe headache that lasted for two days and a rash on his arms, face and chest.

Burnaby Mountain Burnaby, B.C. White Strobing Light
Date: August 26, 2006 Time: 10:00 p.m.
Another strange object flying east, right at this moment, 22;15 disappearing over Burke Mountain. I had my camera aimed over Grouse and Seymour just to see if I could pick up any thing unusual. Night vision on and set at wide angle.
22:00 approximately noticed white strobe just over Burnaby Mountain appeared to be stationary and I knew there are no towers with white strobes over there. I glanced over there but could not see the strobe with the naked eye. Checked with binoculars and could just make it out, zoomed in with camera and found it to be two white lights which appeared similar in spacing to car headlights, I said strobing but it was more like pulsing and not as bright as a strobe, more like headlights being turned on and off. One thing unusual was the lights did not smear like you get at night with moving aircraft. Also found the lights to be moving very slowly east, much to slow to be an aircraft, could have been a chopper but did look like one. Estimated speed about 5 to 10 miles an hour.
At it's closest point to me which would be beside Heritage Mountain in Port Moody I could see a light colored body behind the lights but not make out any definite shape, when the light dimmed I could still see a dim glow from them. I checked with my big binoculars but could only see the lights and only when at their brightest. Object last seen over Burke Mountain in Coquitlam still headed east. When first seen it was just over Burnaby Mountain at approximately 1500 feet and must have been slowly climbing as it appeared to go over Burke Mountain and not around it. So probably up to 5000 feet when last seen.

UFO Sighting over Vancouver, BC of low flying orb, but NASA cannot explain
Date of sighting: July 27, 2011
Location of sighting: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
"Wednesday's night sky over Vancouver, BC played host to a pulsating UFO that was captured on video during skywatching activities from Burnaby Mountain Park on July 27, 2011. The UFO was detected by a night vision camera and tracked for nearly five minutes as it travelled SE to NW before disappearing behind a stand of trees. During this period, the UFO was first seen being overtaken by a second, faster-moving object before amplifying its luminous output in what veteran skywatchers describe as a "power-up" incident. While in flight, the UFO performed multiple power-ups, inviting comparison with another object recorded four nights earlier near Vancouver City Hall."

UFO Seen Between Burnaby And Seymour Mountain British Columbia Canada
Time: Approx: 6:00 a.m.
Not sure if I sent you the following. When I was doing time lapse video over on Old Yale in N. Surrey. I caught the following object between Burnaby mountain and Seymour mountain, the time was about 6:00 a.m. during summer daylight, clear blue sky and well lit.
I was shooting 2 seconds every 30 seconds or so, object was only there for about 30 frames. I copied it to VHS and promptly lost the tape, but recall it as having one black ball connected by a shaft to a white ball, the black ball had 3 apparent disks sticking out like Mickey Mouse ears with room for a fourth.
I exaggerated the length of the connecting shaft, cut it in half. Those reports you posted recently reminded me, wish I could find the video always meant to send you DVD copy, but most of my equipment broken now so even if I find things I can't play it.
Occurred : 11/14/1997 21:15 (Entered as : 11/14/97 21:15-20)
Reported: 11/24/1997 11:15
Location: Burnaby (Canada), BC
I live on Burnaby Mountain and noticed a large, well lit flying wedged shaped object flying very low over my house without any noise. It was flying at a fast and consistant pace, heading towards the North East. It startled me as I caught a glimpse of it from my bedroom window, as it's unsual to have jets fly that low over my house and usually there is the accompanying sound. There were many lights outlining the wedge shape. They seemed to be about the same brightness although some appeared to be reddish while others blue. It is hard to describe something that is so unusual, as I don't have any frame of reference for it. It definitely appeared to be travelling similar to aircraft, as it travelled in a consistent and fluid manner towards the northeast and out of sight within a minute or so. I was listening to the radio at the time and heard the announcement that some space debris had been reported flying over the lower mainland. While listening to the Art Bell show on Sat. Nov! 22, it was requested that anyone who had a close view of the object send in a report. I hope that this report will be helpful. I am curious as to why the media reports stated that the debris fell into the pacific ocean, as the object was heading away from the ocean?
NOTE: There has been substantial activity reported in the area for quite awhile. I'm sure I have only posted just a few of the sightings. A 30 year-old-sighting is difficult to find for the most part...there were few organizations keeping track of these incidents. The MUFON CMS only had 1 report for the time period but there was no information beyond the date of the event...Lon
