Location of Sighting: Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada
Date of Sighting: December 6, 2016
Time of Sighting: 7:50 AM PST
Description: Hi William:
I have here a couple of photos taken yesterday Dec 6, 2016 of two objects in the southeast sky. They were heading east more or less over MT Baker in Washington State at 7:50 AM. I took these photos from Abbotsford on the Canadian side of the border. When I saw them I thought they were American Bombers coming from Alaska, but I realized they were heading the wrong way or on a different heading that they normally fly back to Idaho or North Dakota. This is a daily occurrence so I am well versed in their flight path. The other thing that struck me was that there was no visible vapor trail which every jet trails in the high altitude. As a comparison I am including 2 photos that I took this morning same place, same time, and same direction of travel. The other difference is the plane was visible for minutes as it flew away from me, but the 2 objects yesterday were gone right after I took the photo.
Note: The witness presented an argument that the object photographed was not a conventional military craft as he is used to seeing them on a regular basis. He mentions that the object did not leave a vapor trail. Enhancement does show a trail behind the object. (See 2nd graphic above.) However, the witness stated that the object disappeared. Given this scenario the jet explanation is more doubtful.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
