Full Description of event/sighting: This event happened quite a long time ago now, but I have thought about it often and still wonder what we saw. I wanted to share it with you so that it was recorded somewhere that it happened, because it is something that my friend and I have never forgotten. I grew up in Kitimat B.C. and my close friend and I used to have sleepovers at each others houses quite often. We would sleep out in the camper at her house and often would sneak out in the middle of the night and wander around. She was a year older than me, so we would have been about 11 and 12 years old at the time. We were walking along a sidewalk on a very clear summer night when we both saw a huge light come out of no where and go behind the mountain. It was a bluish green light, and looked oval, maybe it would have been round, but the speed it was moving made it look more oval?
It was coming in at an angle. It appeared travelling very fast and disappeared behind the mountain within about seconds. I can describe the size only because the mountain it went behind has almost like a big chunk missing from it and the light filled that missing chunk. I found a picture online of the mountain showing the missing chunk so you can see the size of it. This picture is much closer than where we were standing. We were across town from the actual mountain but it is clearly visible from anywhere in town.
We speculated that maybe it was a meteor and when we told her mom the next morning, she said it's probably some kind of satellite. We just couldn't imagine why anything would be done with satellites in an out of the way town like Kitimat. It was the amazing size of the light that was so mind-blowing. The image I have attached shows the mountain in behind the local hotel. The chunk I am referring to is the big U shape right above the building, to the left side. The light was as wide as that gap and about twice as long. It disappeared in behind it but no signs or sounds of any impact.
I hope this description gives you an idea of what we saw. I will always wonder what exactly that was.
Thank you to the witness for a good sighting report.
