UFOs Filled The Skies Over Northern British Columbia – Hundreds Of Eyewitnesses File Reports

If you care to write to Brian Vike, he can be reached at 3 different email addresses. Brian’s most used email today is at, also he still has his old email address, as this address went along with a huge website Brian built up and ran until 2009. Also, one other address is

Do keep in mind, Brian did retire, but he is working on a very large report on the amazing UFO flap which took place over British Columbia, Canada back in 2002 and 2003.

Everything from Cattle Mutes, Crop Circles, Triangle Craft, Alien abductions and some of the most amazing UFO sightings to have been reported. Large cases involving numerous witnesses, 200 people for one case alone. UFOs hitting the water, only to lift back up out of the water and battle it out with another unknown craft.  Reports never stopped pouring in, for Brian, it was one of the busiest times to be a UFO investigator.

Also some really interesting UFO footage which still remains a mystery to this day, and the experts have tried to figure out what the object/objects are in the video footage. The media went wild over what was happening in the skies up north. Most of all the cases remain unsolved.

If anyone has a British Columbia UFO sighting, no matter where or when the sighting took place on, please do drop Brian a line as he does want to know if there could be a relationship with other sighting reports he received all across this large, and beautiful province. Also the reports will be sent to B.C. investigators to be dealt with. Of course, Brian will do some checking as well behind the scene.

File Your British Columbia And Yukon UFO Sightings To UFO*BC

Since I, Brian Vike am not investigating UFO sightings anymore I made arrangements to have others look into the sightings that still come into me.

There is an excellent UFO group called UFO*BC which looks into/investigates UFO sightings for the province of British Columbia, Canada and the Yukon only.

The fellows have years of experience dealing with the unknown and would appreciate receiving any sighting reports for these two areas.

You can find UFO*BC’s website at and they have a online sighting report form you can use to file your experience to them, this can be found at:

Also click on the UFO*BC’s image below which takes you directly to their website.

From Brian Vike Retired UFO Investigator - Merry Christmas And I Hope You All Have A Wonderful New Year

 Well I have to say I am enjoying all the free time I have on my hands. I do miss looking into the UFO cases that came in, but honestly I started giving up the passion I once had for the topic. This was mainly due to the amount of sighting reports that were coming in before I pulled the plug.

I always believed If people are kind enough to write up their sighting report and send it along, then I should most certainly reply and do some checking into the sightings that have a little more meat to them. It finally got to the point where so much was pouring into the inbox, I through my hands up and said to heck with this.

Last January 2013 just a hair over 700 sighting reports came in for that month. Plus health issues had me thinking it was time to quit. So I did.

Since I packed it in, sighting reports still rolled in, not near as much as I once was receiving, but still a lot of sighting reports. What I did with these reports was to send them directly to William “Bill” Puckett in the United States for the American sightings.

Bill can be found at: UFOs Northwest and then all the Canadian sighting reports I received went directly to Chris Rutkowski at: Ufology Research of Manitoba

From there I started playing computer games. –:

Anyway, over the years in my province of British Columbia, Canada there was a major UFO wave that took take place in 2002 and 2003 with sightings of all kinds of odd UFOs being witnessed by one person, up to over 200 people who observed one huge UFO event. What I have decided to do is to write up a large detailed report on the two years of amazing sightings and I will post the report later in 2014.

Other than that, I will be sitting back and reading what others are reporting. Again I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and all the best in the coming New Year.

The Vike Factor – Posting Of Brian Vike’s Major UFO Cases (The Vike Files)

Posted:  October 24, 2013

Important Notice: Brian Vike, Canadian UFO investigator and owner of “The Vike Factor”, “The Vike Report Radio Show" and editor of the “Canadian Communicator Magazine” and past owner of HBCC UFO Research has been re-posting his large UFO cases on the main blog.

A lot of these cases have audio reports (telephone interviews Brian Vike did with eyewitnesses) which can give a lot more detail to a UFO sighting than just the text report.

From the two year major UFO flap in British Columbia and other large cases all across Canada, the United States and Worldwide, Brian Vike brings sighting reports of unusual lights, saucer shaped UFOs, gigantic football sized Black Triangle craft, military sightings around sensitive bases and on and on it goes.

Brian received “thousands” of sighting reports over the years and so many of them turned out to be amazing cases.

All of these reports are now being posted and can be found at: 

I thank everyone who filed their sighting as they were all so very interesting.

The Castle Project: Denver’s Haunted Mansion

Did Someone Say Halloween?

Coming to DVD and Digital Platforms (VOD) on October 1, 2013

Los Angeles, CA (September 25, 2013) – Would you buy a  haunted house if it came on the market? Despite a colorful history involving tales of Satanism, mysterious deaths, eerie noises and ghostly sightings, architect Brian Higgins and business partner Travis McAfoos were compelled to purchase the 19th century Croke-Patterson mansion in Denver, Colorado. The Castle Project: Colorado’s Haunted Mansion is their odyssey into the paranormal as they renovate the stately brick mansion into a bed & breakfast. The documentary film will be available on DVD and VOD platforms on October 1, 2013, just in time for Halloween!

The building’s most notable haunting activity occurred during the 1970’s when the dwelling was undergoing renovations to convert it into office space, which some believed to have disturbed the spirits. After completing work, the construction crews would return the following day to find their work from the day before, undone.  After several instances, the contractor purchased a pair of Doberman Pinschers as guard dogs.  Soon after, the workers arrived to find the dogs lying dead on the sidewalk after jumping from a closed third floor window.

It wasn’t long into the more modern renovations that architect Higgins’ crew started to notice some odd occurrences and he picked up a camera, resulting in his directorial debut. “Once I had read all the stories on the Internet of the Croke-Patterson Mansion, I realized that somebody needed to make a movie about this.  It seems like every past owner I came in contact with had a story to tell.  Could there possibly be any truth to these stories?” says director Brian Higgins.

At the outset, Higgins set up a camera doubtful of discovering anything. After the discovery of a dead, mutilated cat followed by workers who claimed to have seen of ghostly apparitions, he moves into one of the upstairs bedroom, by his lonesome while the camera records.  Soon, bats are appearing from nowhere and he hears whispering voices through the halls.  And then there’s an unexplained fire.  Is the house really haunted?

Architectural clues and artifacts found within the walls and foundations allude to a very “otherworldly” blueprint and soon the paranormal investigators and spiritual experts are brought in to investigate.


The historic Croke-Patterson Mansion in Denver, Colorado was long-rumored to be haunted by the cries of babies buried in the basement. The original owner built the Chateauesque-style home in 1891 and lived there for six months before falling victim to the Silver Crash of 1893. Ill fortune visited upon subsequent owners during the 120-year‐long history of the house as they experienced otherworldly phenomena that included apparitions, whispering voices, peculiar odors, failed exorcisms and guard dogs jumping through windows to their death.

When architect Brian Higgins and partners purchase the home for renovation, they are skeptical of the home’s tragic past. But soon workers begin to experience sightings of ghostly children, unusual temperature changes and whispering voices. Workers fall ill and one team member dies while an unexplained fire threatens the project’s completion. Paranormal investigators are brought in and they identify several generations of spirits who remain trapped in the house.

Higgins had the foresight to begin filming, and after several hair‐raising nights spent alone in the building he began to wonder if there was a reason why souls never checked out at the Croke‐Patterson Mansion.

UFO Sighting Over Nat Bailey Stadium In Vancouver British Columbia Canada (Video Footage/Hoax)

The internet is running wild over a alleged sighting of a UFO seen at Nat Bailey Stadium In Vancouver British Columbia Canada. Video footage and still pictures were taken of the craft. Turns out it was nothing more than a hoax. The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre is trying to attract attention to the new and improved centre.

So a marketing scheme this turned out to be.

No real UFO flying that day in the area, just a model craft which appeared to look exactly like the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre.

Watch: ‘UFO sighting’ over Nat Bailey stadium was a sneaky marketing trick -

Mysterious UFO uncovered as hoax -

Deep Cove North Vancouver British Columbia Possible UFO Caught On Film (Picture)

Brian Vike is retired from the UFO field. This report and photo is being posted as a favor to the fellow who sent it in. Anything in the way of sightings, I forward them on so the cases can get looked into.

UFO HOAX Drummed up by H.R. MacMillan Space Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia

This sighting turned out to be nothing more than a HOAX. The sad part about this is, the people who put this hoax together were from the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia. 

It is pretty bad when a great place such as the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre pulls something like this to drum up business. When I lived in Vancouver, B.C. I spent much of my time at the H.R. MacMillan Planetarium as it was named many years ago. 

An astronomer I got to know even brought my large telescope in through the Planetarium. So for me, this is rather sad, it isn’t the end of the world of course, just sad to see a place such as this do something so stupid.

They even sent the photo and report directly to me for posting, which I did. But when I later replied to them about this being a hoax after the news brought out the story on it, no one had the decency to reply. That ticked me off.

Date: August 26, 2013
Time:  Approx: 8:13 p.m.

Hi, my name is (removed). I was wondering if you'd post my UFO sighting on your blog. I recently saw the attached sighting in Deep Cove, while looking at the Deep Cove Kayak Club weather camera.

As I was checking a local weather camera for the Deep Cove Kayak Club, I noticed that there was an object floating off in the distance. It looked relatively large and had a distinct shape to it.

Picture Left: View from the rental store, overlooking Deep Cove. Monday August 26, 2013 at 8:13 p.m.

It also had a dim, white glow to it. I've never seen anything like it. By the time the next camera image loaded, the UFO was gone. The shape was too defined for it to be the product of a strange camera flare. It had to be a UFO.

The image is attached. Thank you for taking the time to look it over. Please respond to me to let me know what your thoughts were on this sighting.

The 2012 Canadian UFO Survey - Record Breaking Year

The 2012 Canadian UFO Survey an analysis of UFO reports in Canada. Compiled by Geoff Dittman and Chris A. Rutkowski

The 2012 Survey Released May 12, 2013.
Since 1989, UFOlogy Research of Manitoba has solicited sightings data from active Canadian researchers. This data is annually compiled into the "Canadian UFO Survey." The survey is made publicly available in an attempt to promote the dissemination of information across the field of ufology. This page contains many of the surveys, as well as the data.

The "Survey Essay" page contains just that; the essays produced each year summarizing the findings of the survey for that year, along with explanations of trends, as well as describing some of the more interesting cases for each year.

The "Search The Database" link is currently inactive. In the future, the complete database will be put on the web, allowing any users to search the database for sightings based on the criteria of their choosing.

The "Data Tables" page contains the raw data, in html table format, for most of the Survey years. Basic data, such as date, time, number of witnesses, etc. is listed, as well as a very limited general description of each sighting. Right now we have the basic data for most years up on the web page, but are currently missing 1989, 1992, and 2009 on the website. We hope to get that data online sometime in the near future.

The "Charts" page contains assorted charts summarizing the data over the years. One can find such things as the distribution of sightings by province, time of day, etc. The charts are in .gif format.With respect to the charts, there is a trade-off that must be made. If one is to be able to view the results of the different variables being measured, the chart is frequently too large to fit on the monitor, and one has to scroll left or right to view the entire results.

Shrinking the charts to fit the screen, while making the entire chart as a whole visable, makes it difficult to actually interpret the chart, as the labels become too small. I have chosen to forsake convenience and make the charts large enough that one can actually read the results.

Given this, the various charts are best viewed with the latest version of Internet Explorer, as it gives you the ability to easily resize the images. Printing the charts using I.E. seems to work well too. With Netscape however, some of the charts don't print on a single page, and either come out on two pages, or it simply cuts off a portion of the chart.

The "Testimonies" page is currently inactive, but will contain eyewitness accounts, in the own words of the witnesses.

If you go to the home of the Canadian UFO Survey, you can find out everything on what the survey is about, and a complete break down/explanation.

Brian Vike Finally Retires From The UFO Topic

I finally have to give up on investigating UFO sightings. As I mentioned to a colleague, I have a great run looking into UFO sightings, met some wonderful people along the way and over the years I received thousands upon thousands of UFO sighting reports, most I would say were explainable, yet others were truly amazing and certainly remain unexplained.

There were just a few Ufologists that I would thank for their help over the years.

The media, who I would like to thank as well, gosh did they treat me with kindness and took an interest in what I had to say.

But anyway, I will leave the blogs up as an archive and will find a new hobby which doesn’t involve sitting at a computer, I just cannot do anymore.

Thank you again to everyone and take care.

4 Bright White Lights/UFOs In A Square Configuration Over The Water Seen From Royston Vancouver Island British Columbia

Date: March 14, 2013
Time:  Approx: 9:00 p.m.

About 9:00 p.m. this evening east by southeast of Royston, B.C. and approximately 800 meters from the beach and approximately 250 meters above the water I saw 4 medium bright white lights in a square configuration.

They were approximately 10 meters wide with a red light of varying brilliance moving quick and randomly within the parameter of the square. There was no sound.

I observed for approximately 45 seconds when it seemed to shrink and fade very slightly as if receding, then just disappeared.

Sasquatch Lifts Truck Onto It’s Side North Of The Strathcona Dam Campbell River Vancouver Island British Columbia

I live in Campbell River Vancouver Island British Columbia and have had experiences like that person had. You wouldn’t believe I will not go into the woods alone anymore, not even in my truck.

I had my truck lifted and placed on the passenger side one night while parked waiting for a friend just north of the Strathcona Dam right on the Gold River Highway.

Whatever it was ran right back into the bush where it had come from and screamed exactly like the guys on the “Finding Bigfoot” show. I took off right away and called the police and all I got was laughed at since there was no damage done to my truck.

Vike Factor Note: The person who sent this report to me, could you please send an email to me at, thanks a bunch.

Orange Lights In The Sky Over Victoria West Vancouver Island British Columbia (Case Solved – Chinese Lanterns)

Date:  March 16, 2013
Time:  Approx: 11:00 p.m.

Vike Factor Note: A witness wrote to me just now and informed me that the orange lights so many people saw were Chinese lanterns. They told me they were released in a ball park in honor of someone’s Birthday. Also it makes good sense that this is what the sighting would have been of, lanterns.

Hi Brian, I live in Victoria West and last night I saw a large number of floating lights in the sky moving from south to north. The movement was not consistent with what I would expect from Chinese Lanterns, although I do consider that to be a possibility.

Quite a few other people in my neighborhood saw as well, this would have been around 2300hrs.

I looked for event postings of Chinese lantern launches in the Vic West/Esquimalt area and found nothing, have you heard any other reports from last night?

If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential.

Also, please feel free to send in your sightings that have happened years ago. So many of these older sightings are nothing short of amazing.
