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.

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 -

John Tosti Story - Alien Contact In Bloomington Indiana (Video Clips/Pictures/Audio)

 (From Brian Vike’s UFO Files) Posted by Brian Vike. Also this is a very, very long report, I have added video clips/images and audio to the report.

A message to John’s Mother, I am sure you will read the report and view the clips on your son. A while back we were emailing back and forth, and I have no idea what happened to your emails, mainly you email address. If you would be kind enough to send me another email this would be great, you can send it to me, at I have something I need to discuss with you.

Thank you and look forward in hearing from you again.

John Christopher Tosti: Born 1-21-70 - Died 3-24-2011 (UFO/Alien Abductee)

I bring sad news this evening, Mr. John Christopher Tosti passed away on March 24, 2011 leaving behind loved ones, friends and folks who cared about John. I myself met John only through emails and our telephone calls we made to one another.

I found John to be an intelligent man who loved his family dearly. John contacted me in hopes of finding some answers, or to tell someone about his ongoing experiences with unidentified flying craft, and his alien abduction, which troubled him for years after the experience.

My regret was not meeting John in person as he and I would have had lots in common, and we would have hit it off straight away.

John leaves behind a wealth of information in a report I wrote up on what had been happening to him and what he and his family were observing. I did have everything posted at an old website I owned and operated, but I did sell the website and now much of the photos and video is not posted. I do have everything here, but it was packed away with all UFO material a couple years ago.

In Memory of John Tosti
Deremiah Frye Mortuary Greene and Harrell Chapel.

Brian Vike’s Note: It was hard hearing about John’s passing as he was still a young, kind man, but I then was told that about a year later, John’s wife Susan passed away on Wednesday, November 24, 2010. Both John and Susan will be greatly missed by family and friends.

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.

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.

Photo 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.

UFO Books - By Chris Rutkowski (Ufology Research)

The Big Book of UFOs

Book Description.

Chris Rutkowskis name is synonymous with UFO research the world over, and this book captures his most breathtaking research, along with new and exciting accounts, that will have you questioning "are we alone in the universe?"

The Big Book of UFOs is a compendium of his best and most disturbing UFO stories for enthusiastic fans everywhere, with startling evidence to make even the biggest skeptics believe. The renowned ufologist takes us on a tour of UFOs in Canada and around the world. He has studied UFOs, aliens, abductions, and even encounters reported by kids.

Rutkowski offers many famous reports, such as the "ghost airplanes" seen over Canadas Parliament in 1915, but also includes many exciting new cases, secret files, and statistics, as well as lots of tidbits and trivia to keep everyone excited.

For more information about the book:


Abductions and Aliens: What's Really Going On

Book Description.

We can't escape them; aliens are everywhere. They sell us soft drinks and star in their own sitcoms. But to the many people who believe they have been abducted aboard strange crafts, aliens are a very serious reality. Stories of these encounters, taken from investigators' files, have been vividly depicted in television specials and motion pictures.

Despite their predominance as a cultural phenomenon, experts offer drastically conflicting opinions: aliens are harmless creatures whose aim is to better understand humans; aliens are angel-like entities here to enhance our spiritual awareness; aliens are conspiring with the government in a plot to enslave humans; and aliens are genetically breeding with humans to create a new race of hybrids.

But, what is really going on? Are aliens abducting thousands of unsuspecting people each year? Are they then inserted with tracking devices and monitored? Based on his own investigative files and almost twenty-five years of research, science writer Chris Rutkowski asks hard questions, looking critically, yet compassionately, at the stories of abductees. He is an astronomer, educator and published commentator within the area of study known as "ufology." Rutowski presents case histories of many abductees, showing both their diversity and similarities, and examines how our understanding is shaped by media, by science, and by society itself.

For more information about the book:


The Canadian UFO Report: The Best Cases Revealed

There are chapters on the government's involvement with UFOs, UFO landing pads, media interest, and even UFO abductions.

What were the "ghost airplanes" seen over the Parliament Buildings in 1915, or the flying saucers seen by military officers over Goose Bay Air Force Base, Newfoundland, in the 1940s and 1950s? Was a prospector burned by a UFO in Manitoba in 1967? Did a UFO crash off the coast of Nova Scotia? Was Quebec invaded by UFOs in 1973? Find out here.

For more information about the book:


A World of UFOs

From a floating platform watched by dozens in Indonesia, to a Saturn-shaped object that flew over a ship off the coast of Brazil, to a landing Down Under, UFOs have been baffling witnesses and making headlines around the world.

What are some of the most interesting cases? Which ones seem most mysterious? And what can one of the worlds most active UFO researchers and investigators tell us about UFOs, from A to Z? Join Chris Rutkowski as he takes us on a tour of A World of UFOs.

For more information about the book:


I Saw It Too!: Real UFO Sightings

Book Description.

Although many adults believe they have had encounters with strange creatures from alien spaceships, not everyone has actually reported their experiences to official investigators. But if you're a young person it's even less likely that people will believe you and more likely that your story will never be officially recorded. After all, who would believe a kid?

I Saw It Too! is the first collection of stories told by children, documenting what they saw and when they saw it. These accounts are real cases of UFOs they've seen or alien creatures they've encountered that were reported to government or military officials, UFO investigators, and journalists.

Inside you will find eighteen of these strange, fascinating, and believable tales recounted by young people from around the world with story illustrations by Stacey Archer with Lonigan Gilbert. The truth is really out there, and renowned ufologist Chris Rutkowski has tracked it down!
