Eyewitness Report-
September 13th, 2014 - 8"20 pm Pacific
I was just getting up from my chair facing a big window, to look outside and I face the Burrard Inlet and Simon Fraser University from the north side....and I looked southwest to west. I saw a very bright white tennis ball size glow, as white as the moon, (maybe 1/60th of the moon in size....I tried to imagine 15 circles in one quarter of the moon.....after a while for an example...but it seemed even bigger). It came from the south east, but I noticed it as it was centre, straight in front of me to the southwest, It had a wide tail and it went from east to west.....between the Burnaby Mtn. and Capital Hill in a canyon to it's northwest.....in which Burnaby and Vancouver are beyond it directly. I watched to see if there was going to be an explosion as it seemed very low to the mountain....and very close. It took about almost 5 seconds (full seconds....ie: 1+ 2+, etc.), not too fast, but apparently it couldn't have been a comet, because they stay for days.... although that is what it looked like. I heard no sound. I had no camera. If anyone living in houses on the water in Port Moody's north side was outside, they might have seen it. If it was that high up, I imagine others may have noted it as well.- Janet B.

Looking north on the west coast of oregon object resembling a star descending quickly east to west. Bright white then red/white color to it as speed increased. Size increased based on light. It left a long tail. Died quick behind the tree line of my vison. Less than 2 minutes after, 4 helicopters lingering. First came from direct north to south, large white light on it. Saw around 8 or 9 total. Law enforcement helicopters as well. They flew at 500 ft, while assumed news/other helicopters flew around 1000 feet. Skys were busy for the next hour. Anyone else see anything? - Nick Walker
