Eastern meets Western Canada, as the Making Contact Team connected with Charles Lamoureux, an avid skywatcher and amateur astronomer in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Upon encouragement, we visited the Squamish Chief, a sacred site in British Columbia. The mountainous location is revered by the indigenous Squamish people who have long believed that there is something special about the site. This feeling has carried on into contemporary times as numerous witnesses over the years have reported seeing strange lights at the Squamish Chief. Following our CE-5 protocols, a large glowing ball of light silently floated across the sky at a rather swift speed before it is obscured by trees as it entered a forest. At first, it was thought to be an airplane, but there was no sound.
Charles examined the footage and concluded that the light did not come from any obvious source such as a drone, meteor, or satellite. And while UFO enthusiasts will likely declare it to be an alien craft at the same time that skeptics insist that it is not, an almost equally fantastic possibility is that it is some kind of atmospheric phenomenon that cannot be explained by science yet.
Dave Palachik, Chief Investigator of MUFON Canada, conducted a full investigation (Report #85466) of this sighting and it was concluded that the object was 6-8 feet in diameter and moving approximately 18 to 20 Kph. In terms of trajectory, no landing or fading out was observed. The final analysis: Orb. Unknown Other.
