North Vancouver British Columbia ISS Or UFO ?

Posted: February 9, 2008

Date: August 12, 2007 Time: 11:14 p.m.

Location of Sighting: North Vancouver BC. Number of witnesses: 0 Number of objects: 1 Shape of objects: Single spectral white "starlike" spot in motion.

Full Description of event/sighting: I have observed many satellites in the usual way, and was at one time a member of the Regina Astronomical Society many years ago. While looking at the "Persied" shower towards NE, August 12 at 11:10 pm, clear sky, a single 'starlike' object looking exactly like a normal satellite (where the satellites are illuminated by the sun after sunset); moving steadily and slowly towards the NE. Object visible for approximately 3 minutes until it left the area. The object may have tracked in a gentle arc, suggesting an orbital skew from my POV. The track put it directly overhead North Vancouver at highest point.

Single point source of spectral white light; no shape discernable, silent, no pulsing lights as on an aircraft.

My take: Too sharp, steady and small to be a white bird illuminated by city lights, also too sharp and too spectral to be a balloon or any kind of floater. Lack of navigation lights or any blinking on and off suggests it is not an airliner.

Most important: Since the sun had set at approximately 8:45 or so, the object could not have been illuminated at 11:15 pm, so either it was carrying it's' own source of light such as a beacon or ? or if it was illuminated by sunlight it would have to be one hell of a distance from earth to stay in sunlight and be travelling much faster than anything we sent up. (Passing asteroid?). I doubt it !

When I checked the orbital records of the ISS, it shows one pass over Vancouver on August 12 at exactly the same time or so it seemed, but I couldn't get my computer to agree with me. I am left with the possibility that it could have been the ISS with its' attached Endeavor and with its' work lights turned on for the crew to do some work of some kind. Otherwise, where did the illumination come from?


Thank you to the witness for their report.
