UFO 'Not From Here' Says Local Deejay

By Robert Freeman
The Progress

Believe it or not, Dave Francis and his girlfriend Kelly
McDonald saw something otherworldly Sunday night.

And their story backs up the report of neighbour Lisa McCubbin,
who saw a large triangular-shaped object appear just after
midnight in the skies over the UCFV campus in Chilliwack.

But unlike McCubbin, who's holding out for a rational
explanation, Francis, 29, and McDonald, 30, are sold on the
belief they saw something not of this world.

"I really think it was a UFO," says Francis, a local deejay. "I
don't really care if anybody else believes me... it was the
craziest thing I ever saw."

"I know that I saw something that wasn't from here," says
McDonald. "I've never seen anything move that way."

UBC astronomer Jaymie Matthews doesn't dismiss what all three
Chilliwack residents saw, but he believes that city lights
reflecting off the bellies of a flock of birds is a more
"reasonable" explanation.

He says flocks of birds do take off at night, and the light
reflecting off their bellies can give the appearance of a single
translucent object.

Unlike our ancestors, he says, people today are "spending less
and less time looking up at the night sky... and there's a lot
of stuff that happens up there on a regular basis that looks

But all three Chilliwack witnesses insist what they saw did not
move anything like birds.

"It wasn't birds," McDonald says flatly. When the triangular-
shaped object came closer, she says, "it broke apart into 20 or
more of these little spheres... birds don't dive-bomb in at
each other."

Francis agrees that what he saw could be explained as a bunch of
birds flocking together into a triangular shape, but frankly he
simply prefers the UFO explanation.

"I want to believe what I saw," he says, adding that birds don't
"shimmer" and they don't change shape.

"Whatever it was, they were moving from place to place as a
unit," he says, and then "just faded away" in the skies over the
Promontory area.
