More like evening delight.
Last night over the Strait of Georgia near Powell River, BC, we saw this bright light in the sky. It appeared just after sunset over Texada Island. From the trails in the sky, it appears there was an earlier one to the right. My guess is it was either rockets or high intensity flares test fired from a ship in Military Exercise Area WG (Whiskey Golf to locals) on the other side of the strait.
