Was that a flying saucer hovering over east Vancouver?
Several residents report strange object Sunday evening

No joke: Several residents in far east Vancouver reported seeing a saucer-shaped object Sunday evening, hovering low in the sky.
The object had such bright green and red lights that it drew several residents out of their homes off Southeast 192nd Avenue in the Clear Meadows neighborhood at about 6:45 p.m..
“It was the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen,” said Vancouver resident Gary Moore.
Moore and another resident, Kathy Plamondon, contacted the The Columbian to report seeing the alleged unidentified flying object, which they say did not appear to be the planes they typically see flying out of Pearson Field.
Dispatchers with 911 on Monday confirmed at least one report of an object sighting in east Vancouver, but referred the call on to the National UFO Reporting Center in Seattle.
Officials at the National UFO Reporting Center said they did not receive any UFO reports; neither did the National Weather Service in Portland, which sometimes receives calls of that type. A spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration office in Seattle, citing the Monday holiday, said he didn’t have any information available.
The sighting apparently has everyone stumped.
“At first I thought it was a high firework through the tree branches,” Plamondon said by e-mail. “As I stepped out of my front door — facing east — to help load grandbabies in parents’ car, I saw that it was not going out or falling from the air, as fireworks would.”
