At the end of August I wrote an article for UFO Digest on UFO activity over the skies of Nelson, B.C. I received an email from a resident in Balfour saying he had seen the same lighted aircraft I had observed on a similar flight path. Balfour is about a half hour drive east of Nelson. What some of us thought is that this craft is a drone operated by someone directing it from ground level via computer and is on the look out for marijuana grow-ops or other illegal activity. Similar sightings have occurred 12 miles east of Nelson. It's been mentioned that whoever is behind the UFO activity here in the West Kootenays knows who is keeping an eye on the situation among the general population. But I can't see why they would be concerned about this.

I was talking to a former co-worker and they told me some of the unusual activity around Nelson. One was an aircraft that was buzzing around a couples house one morning around 3 a.m. They were too scared to get up out of bed and look at what was making the noise. The same person relayed a number of sightings of a slender cigar shaped craft that makes the rounds between Nelson and one of the dams west of here. Most observations of this craft is on foggy mornings at around 5 a.m.
