Darks skies offer optimal UFO awareness

UFO event is Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. at Cattle Point Dark Skies Star Park

Bill Smith plans to celebrate CE-5 – a term describing a fifth category of close encounters with extraterrestrial intelligence – with an evening of dark reflection and respect.

“It’s a global event, literally millions of people take part,” said the Oak Bay News “Dark Skies” columnist.

“I’m trying to bridge the typical UFO reaction – which is ridicule – with the people who are convinced they’ve seen things.”

He sees it as an evening of fun and imagination for all ages and to ponder the question: Are we alone in the universe?

“People can basically participate in this awareness session,” Smith said.

Bring chairs, blankets and hot drinks for the session Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. at Cattle Point Dark Skies Star Park.

“(There’s) no one in charge, just find a quiet spot and talk quietly amongst yourselves,” Smith said. “Do not expect human leadership.”
