Full Description of Event/Sighting: We live on an island in the Nanaimo Harbour. Our house is right on the water facing the Sunshine Coast. My roommate went out on our deck to have a smoke and he call my wife and I outside to look at an odd light that was hovering just above the mountains to the northwest.
My wife and I looked and couldn't figure out what it was. I grabbed the binoculars and took a better look. I couldn't believe what we were seeing, the light was actually a center light and five other lights around an oval object.
It just was hovering there for about 3 minutes, then turned 180 degrees and moved slightly to the right. Then a second oval appeared just up and to the left of the first one. They just hovered there for a few minutes.
All three of us seen both of these ovals through the binoculars. After we all took turns looking at them, the first one started to fade out. The lights went out counter clockwise and then the center light went out. A minute or so later the second one did the same.
We have never seen anything like this before and would like to know if anyone else seen anything similar tonight.
