Even second hand, such things are well outside my price range, otherwise I would probably be an awful lot more snap happy! Im stuck with my compact camera, until or unless I win the lottery or some nonsense.
Jaffray, British Columbia
Date: July 27, 2003
Time: approx: 2:00 a.m.
I contacted a person who resides in Jaffray, British Columbia tonight as I heard they were witness to something pretty darn strange. Not only did she see what I am about to tell you, but so did 7 other witnesses. Bringing the total number of folks who observed this to 8.
Why I have found this to be an interesting sighting is due to Mr. Peter Davenport from the NUFORC receiving a report from a witness which took place on July 27, 2003 at St. Mary's Lake, 12 miles east of Kimberly, British Columbia. Due to Mr. Davenport receiving the St. Mary's Lake sighting, and myself helping in following up on this case, more witnesses names have come to light. Tomorrow I will be talking with another witness who was in another location who saw the same object pass over head. The one reported to the NUFORC.
The Jaffray, British Columbia Sighting below: Does these two reports hand something to do with one another.
As I mentioned above in my opening statement I talked with one of the witnesses who observed something strange on July 27, 2003 with seven others.
So at 2:00 a.m. one of the guests who were at the ladies home I chatted with tonight went outside and looked up into the night sky and saw a strange ray of white light which went right across the clear night's sky from the northwest heading southeast running in a straight line. The guest called everyone out to have a look due to it being very strange. Some of the thoughts people had who were observing this mentioned they first thought it may have been the northern lights. But all soon ruled out it being the aurora. The witness said the ray of light was so brilliant that many of the witnesses could see it rotating within it's self. Also it was noted due to the brightness of this light that they could see a black line running the whole length of the white light. The black line stayed in the same spot as the rest of the light rotated as mentioned above. She also said it looked like a jet stream to give a good example of what it looked like. Also the total length of the ray of light was all the same brightness. There was no portion of it brighter or dimmer. It remained constant right across the sky. (HBCC UFO Note: I did bring up the question, did anyone see any aurora at any other time that night? I was told no, none was observed).
The witness said the ray of light stayed in the same position for an hour before it started fading away. I also asked if any of them saw any other strange lights in the sky that night, and she told me no. They only observed the ray of light running across the sky. She also told me that the light was rather wide, meaning it wasn't just a small point of light. No sounds were heard at all. Jaffray, B.C. is directly southeast from the original sighting at St. Mary's Lake.

Your sighting immediately made me think of this wild video filmed by a traffic camera and it's baffling people. I don't think it would be impossible to hoax this event. If someone can debunk... Debunk away. lol
Did the beam look anything like this? There's also a video doing the rounds of a beam picking up a cow. I'm not sure how that analysis came out.
