Strange Orb Reported over Vancouver Lake
UFO Depiction

Was the ball of light spotted over Vancouver aliens or something much more mundane?

Carey Hicks was standing in his driveway in Vancouver’s Fruit Valley neighborhood last night when he saw something odd and scary streak through the sky.

It was a helicopter chasing a small craft, possibly an orb, that was highly maneuverable, he said.

“It was a smaller craft with a large military helicopter following it,” Hicks said. “It flew over two or three times.”

He said he saw the craft, which he described as a ball of light, fly over his neighborhood toward Vancouver Lake at about 10 p.m. or 10:30 p.m.

Allen Kenitzer, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, said there were some military exercises on Wednesday night for the Oregon National Guard, but they involved F15s and not helicopters, as far as he knows.

“We have no reports of any UFOs,” Kenitzer said. “But there has been some military activity.”

Kama Simonds, a spokeswoman for the Port of Portland, said the port is working on emergency preparedness drills today, but there was nothing happening at the Port at the time Hicks said the incident happened.

“It had nothing to do with the drill,” Simonds said.

So far, there are also no reports listed on the National UFO Reporting Center website at www.nuforc.org.

Hicks said he’d love to know what was going on. The helicopter chase was very noisy, he added.

“You could just really hear the rumbling of the helicopter,” Hicks said. “It was freaky. It was scary. It made your heart pound.”

He said he has no idea what the object, which looked a bit like a star, was.

“I don’t want to say aliens,” Hicks said. “It could be something from another country. But they were chasing something and they were following it around. It was outmaneuvering the helicopter pretty good. The light would just shut off, and then come back on around the other side of it.”

He said his neighbor and his neighbor’s daughter saw it as well. The object was about 500 feet off the ground, he added. “There was definitely something about it,” Hicks said.
