Inside The Mind Of Brian Vike Brian Vike
I am the director of HBCC UFO Research and have been investigating and reporting on the topic since mid 2000. Many years ago I was heavily involved with the American Association of Variable Star Observers, The Royal Canadian Astronomical Society of Canada. I have enjoyed astronomy all my life and of course all factors of the paranormal. This is what brought me to looking into the UFO topic.

Than are dreamt of in your philosophy”
- William Shakespeare.
Brian Vike, Director of HBBC UFO Research has so kindly taken the time to answer a few questions for our PROOF readers. A web search on Brian reveals hits in the thousands. He isn’t a ghost hunter, if your home has a spirit, contact PROOF. But, if you have seen some unexplainable lights in the sky, or perhaps a large hairy beast strolling in your back yard, he is the man to tell. Virtually everyday, you will find him at his keyboard, typing as fast as his fingers can type.
Getting reports filed and online. Folks from literally all over the world, find their way to Mr. Vike. He has provided a safe & well – established site for UFO reports. Everyday average folks like you and me, as well as a vast number of reports from the military & government officials end up on his site. From Argentina to Nova Scotia, and everywhere in between. A regular guest on the Jeff Rense show, The Wayne and Jayne show, and has made appearances on countless others [,including the Jerry Pippin Show].
Proof Tracey: Brian, I would like to thank you for taking the time to let our PROOF readers get to know you better.
Could you share a little bit about HBCCUFO.org & what you hope to see accomplished from it?
Brian Vike: HBCC UFO Research was formed due to the interest I have in the UFO topic. This going back many years from watching Sci-Fi movies, etc. I later got into astronomy and belonged to two different organizations. One being in the United States called the American Variable Star Observers and the other The Royal Astronomical Association of Canada. Actually I was going to focus mainly on investigating UFO sightings from here in British Columbia, Canada. But due to the large amount of sighting reports that came in, I soon moved HBCC UFO Research to covering sightings worldwide. Of course the idea is to try to solve the many cases that arrive here. Most are explainable, and then there are the ones that leave me scratching my head. Right now I am taking HBCC UFO Research International with hopes of offering people a better service.
Proof Tracey: At this point, all we can do is offer our opinions, theories, thoughts on life beyond this planet. Keeping that in mind, & going through your archived reports & comparing that to more recent years, it seems the UFO reports are on the rise. Do you think UFO activity has increased in current years, or do you think it is just a matter of more people coming forward with what they have witnessed, as when in earlier years, they might have seen something, but not come forward in fear of ridicule?
Brian Vike: I certainly do believe UFO activity has increased and is increasing every year. I guess the population is growing each and every year by millions, more folks to possibly observe something. Also I do believe that people are becoming more open minded to the idea that there may be life out there somewhere. But of course, if there is life, do they have the means to travel the great distances to get here? Always more questions than answers it seems. The internet has become the tool of choice by many filing reports, it is easy to file a report, plus they still can keep in the shadows from others, who may ridicule them, but the ridicule factor is still here and we loose a lot of reports due to people not wanting to get involved.
Proof Tracey: Brian what advice would you give to someone that has encountered a UFO, but is hesitant or embarrassed to report it?
Proof Tracey: Indeed excellent advice & a wonderful policy Brian!
Proof Tracey: Could you give us your personal definition of UFOlogy?
Brian Vike: I guess my definition for UFOlogy would be trying to solve the large question, is there life out there and are or were they here.
Proof Tracey: what got you interested in UFO research?
Brian Vike: My love for astronomy and the unexplained is what pretty much got me into UFOlogy, I like a good mystery. Plus if hard evidence could be provided to say they are here or visiting our planet, this would be earth shattering news.
Proof Tracey: Have you ever encountered a UFO?
Brian Vike: Yes I have been witness to a UFO; certainly it was and still is an unexplained event. This sighting took place here where I reside, in Houston, British Columbia and was witnessed by others and excellent video footage was taken. When one watches something such as I did that is so unusual, it really can be a life changing experience.
Proof Tracey: Amazing!!
Proof Tracey: Looking back on some reports sent to you, & taking into consideration, that there are several different types of reported UFOs, what are your thoughts on whether there may be more than one type of life beyond our galaxy?
Brian Vike: There is the possibility of there being more than one kind, or type of life form out there. We hear stories on just this topic all the time. But once again, these are stories related to us and as it stands right now, I have no proof to back up any of these claims people make. Until we do receive the hard evidence, we will still wonder.
Proof Tracey: Brian, are there any current projects you are working on that you would like to share with our readers?
Brian Vike: I haven't anything big in the works; I am slowly putting together a yearly magazine which will carry only the best of the best cases. I am also trying to put together a documentary, having the best of the best cases told. Other than this, just keeping busy with looking into the many reports I receive.
Proof Tracey: In all the years of reports you have received, what are some consistencies & similarities that you have found within these reports? I.e. no sound when UFO was present.
Brian Vike: Of course there are a number of different objects/crafts being observed, but still there are similarities. You noted about the sound, most unknowns witnessed seem to not produce any sound. Lights on objects are similar in color or shape. Many objects around airports and military bases look close to being the same shape and having the same features. I guess there is a good variety of them out there, but still many carry the same similarities.
Proof Tracey: In the past, I have watched documentaries that have dealt with USOs (Unidentified Submerged Objects) Have you received reports of USOs?
Brian Vike: I may have received maybe two reports on USOs, many above water, but not much has come in where a craft is observed going in and out of a body of water.
Proof Tracey: what drives you to keep going with your research?
Brian Vike: Basically trying to find the answer, are they here! Also I really do enjoy listening to someone tell their story of what they saw. This can be amazing.
Proof Tracey: Can you tell us a little bit about The Vike Report?
Brian Vike: The Vike Report is the actual eyewitness retelling what experience they had, either a UFO sighting or a Missing Time event. I placed 127 of these audio reports onto two CD which I have for sale on my website. I had them free for everyone at one point until there got to be so many MP3 clips that I had to remove them from the website due to the clips taking up a ton of bandwidth. But these are the eyewitnesses telling me their stories in a telephone interview.
Proof Tracey: Any advice for the avid sky watcher?
Brian Vike: Any advice I would give to a sky watcher would be when observing something strange, make notes. Try to remember as much detail as possible about what you saw. If others are with you, please have them file a report as well. Someone always sees something just a little different and their information is so helpful. But the main thing is to have the date, time and as much detail as possible. Anything that may be left out, I will write the witness back to see what other information they may not have provided in their report.
Proof Tracey: Excellent advice Brian.
Proof Tracey: Do you have any reports that have really stuck with you, & why?
Brian Vike: Gosh yes, I have a number of report or cases that I am still baffled over. One for example is the * Missing Time case out of Kelowna B.C. It really is frustrating when one spends so much time and can't get the answers to solve the mystery. There was and still is lots of physical evidence to say something weird happened that night. Many witnessed watch objects in the sky that night and even in the area where the missing time took place. But to this day, this has to be one of the most frustrating cases for me, all due to never getting answers from the ones who would know. If it military or some other official. There are also many more cases like this I haven't a clue over as to what happened, or I should say what caused the event.
Proof Tracey: Many of our readers might be intrigued to know, that in addition to UFO reports that you also deal with Bigfoot sightings as well. Along those lines, you yourself have taken an active role in the past in the hunt for Sasquatch. Have you collected any significant evidence?
Brian Vike: I really enjoy the Sasquatch/Bigfoot topic. I will certainly investigate a report if it should come into me. I do have some good reports from different areas. But as for significant evidence, no I really don't have this. I do have photos of areas where the critter was alleged to have been seen, alleged droppings of the critter. But no hard evidence.
Proof Tracey: What are your thoughts on whether or not, a Sasquatch species might possibly exist?
Brian Vike: Sasquatch like UFOs, they have been seen for years and years. Our native people talk about the Sasquatch for generations. Same goes for UFOs, I guess if I am to believe in the possibility of UFOs, then I should have an open mind to Sasquatch.
Proof Tracey: Well said Brian.
Proof Tracey: Mr. Vike, in closing, I would like to give my sincere thank you. This has been an enjoyable, & a learning experience.
The photos shown in the missing time case in Kelowna B.C. may be graphic to some of our readers, & viewer discretion is advised.

Bulletin - 11/6/06
Brian is OK, although snowed in with almost 50" of snow. In a conversation with him yesterday, he informed me (Larry Dicken) that he is not retiring, and that he expects to re-emerge near term into the UFO Community and continue his work. He has had a recent combination of problems that convinced him that he needed to take a break and get some rest and relaxation. Currently, he is having technical problems with his website that he hopes will be resolved shortly, allowing you full access to all of the material currently stored there. In the interim, you may access many of his emailed reports and purchase his audio CDs when you . Brian says, "Hi to all of you."

Canadian Ufologist and Founder of "HBCC Research" Abdicates The Field
By Frank Warren
Not unlike the phenomenon Brian Vike vigorously investigated, he suddenly and without warning dropped off the UFO radar. His last post (from him) on his web-site, "HBCC Research" read, "Time For a Break!"
Today, no links are accessible; however, his homepage, although not “specific” indicates his departure was due to health reasons. Moreover it states that the site will be the future home of “The Repository of The UFO Research Of Mr. Brian Vike.”
The home page message further reads:
We are pleased to let you know that Brian is doing quite well and wisely stepping aside to regain his health and vigor. As many of you are aware he has often been in extreme pain while doing this “labor of love” for us all.
We wish him a speedy recovery and abundant blessings for his future!
It is now our intent to establish the historical data accumulated by Brian as archival resources for future generations.
The data was never intended for any purpose but as a repository of information accumulated from direct human experiences in the UFO phenomena.
Although Brian’s direct research is discontinued, at this time, we know that UFO cases will not end anytime too soon.
Perhaps there will be another to pick up the gauntlet and to continue this stellar work.
God bless you in all your endeavors and thank you for giving so selflessly to humankind in your financial outlay and countless hours of research and the loving care shown to the many who were lost in the confusion and fear of their experience.
But most especially, thank you for the excitement and integrity you brought to this amazing subject.
You are surely one of a kind!
“Live Long And Prosper”
Brian's dedication and hard work in Ufology doesn't go un-noticed--we wish him a speedy recovery, and hope his absence from Ufology is but a brief one.
12/4/05: The Roswell Briefing
Brian Vike of HBCC UFO Research has been speaking to a gentleman, who was a LT. COL, USAFR (Ret). (He was a F-111 pilot with the 27th Tactical Fighter Wing stationed at Cannon AFB near Clovis, New Mexico from 1973 to August 1977). His initial email to me was over a post/report I sent out which I entitled, "Cannon, AFB - UFOs, Burned Circles & Cow Found Mutilated". Also in the fellows letter to me, the man mentioned that he was one of approximately 48 officers who received the "Roswell Briefing" in June of 1976 at the base. I wrote back to him asking if he might be kind enough to supply me with what was said at the briefing, so below is what the fellow sent to me. The "Roswell Briefing" is in one of the two jpg images in which he sent along, both are of text information.
HBCC UFO Research is of course interested in any further information that anyone might be able to provide from military personal who may have been at this briefing back in 1976, or any information from anyone who has knowledge of the goings on over the Roswell Crash. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by visiting my website which is provided in this report. I also can be contacted at 250-845-2189. Please know that everyone's personal information is kept strictly private and is not given out to anyone. The information someone might be able to provide can be extremely important.
Thank you, Brian Vike - Director of HBCC UFO Research.
Text of letter and briefing page images sent to Brian follow:
Brian, I have included pages 1 and 3 of my "The Roswell Briefing" which I penned in the mid 1990s. The briefing may, in fact, have been less than 5 minutes in duration.? Most of the information has been well documented in volumes of Roswell lore buy the likes of Randle, Schmitt, Friedman, etc.
The lone exception perhaps is that the briefing officer mentioned the probable cause of the craft's demise as determined by the USAF accident investigation team ?
If there is anything significant about all this, it's simply that a USAF intelligence officer, briefing from an official government documents, disclosed to a group of military aircrew members details of an event which officially never happened.
The F-111s have long gone from the base ? The squadron was de-activated and the young intelligence officer left active duty reportedly to accept a position with an intelligence agency at a higher level.
The Roswell Briefing was conducted in June 1976.? It was a full 20 years before I jotted down my recollections.? Senator Goldwater subsequently confirmed on a morning talk show that he did try to gain access to the now famous Hanger 18.?
As far as I'm concerned, that alone was enough for me to dispel any doubt about the authenticity of the briefing officer's material.? Sure would like to have seen the letterhead on his document, however.
11/2/05: During the UFO-Files Report Show, on which Brian is heard as the week's special guest, a dramatic close encounter with of a Giant Triangle, which included military helicopters and fighter jets in close pursuit, in Little Rock, Arkansas that occurred in 2003 is discussed. Brian conducted a full interview with an eyewitness. Click the play button below to listen.
11/2/05: During the UFO-Files Report Show, on which Brian is heard as the week's special guest, multiple close encounters with a Giant Triangle reported in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada are discussed. Brian conducted a full interview with an eyewitness, who reported he felt and observed physical and electromagnetic effects during and after the sightings. The sightings occurred on the following dates and times: July 5, 2004 at 4:00 AM, July 7, 2004 - Close sighting as per sketches 3:30 AM, July 17, 2004 - 1500 feet approximately details hard to see just shape and 3 light. Moved east then drifted towards G.E. Plant, and August 26, 2004 - Triangle lights looked like brighter than usual stars moving east. Click the play button below to listen to the interview.
10/22/05: Brian writes: "I received an email from a gentleman who told me he had been witness to the crashed object at Kecksburg, Pennsylvania. What I didn't realize was that this fellow, who was 15 years old at the time, and out hunting with his brothers may have been the first eyewitness to actually see the crashed object. In the interview I have done with him, he goes on to tell of an amazing story and notes that later in life while serving in the military he came across pilots who were scrambled to intercept the Kecksburg UFO. I know everyone will find this audio report as fascinating as I have."
An Interview With Corina - Missing Time In Kelowna, British Columbia:
On June 4, 2003, Corina and another woman friend experienced a
dramatic sighting, abduction and missing time. Before and after this event many
eyewitnesses in the town spotted a number of UFOs. There is trace evidence in
this case as well.
