A plane? A bird? A UFO?

A number of Castanet readers wrote us last month after seeing strange lights in the sky between Feb. 20-27.

Some speculated it could have been a meteor or satellite debris, while others surmised it was some kind of unidentified flying object.

They describe it as a red light travelling across the sky. One reader, who sent in a video of what he saw, says the object was travelling slowly from east to west and almost pulsating between a dark and light red-ish colour before it vanished behind houses.

Walter shot the attached video he writes, "A friend asked me tonight if it could have been fallout from the fire out by Scandia? The video was taken around 11 p.m. just before the fire which, according to the fire department, started around 12:20 a.m. I checked the weather reports for the past 24 hours and the wind was blowing north at 4 km/h. The object that I was recording was moving west."

Doug Glennie reported, "Sitting in the hot tub. Just saw a fire ball heading south over West Kelowna. Meteor or satellite debris?"

We contacted the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory in Penticton, who passed us along to the National Research Council of Canada.

They told us that they have received other reports from around the Okanagan, but have nothing definitive to say about what it may have been.
