Because they don't show up on ordinary camera's well.
The most common one we sighted was red covered craft, under the light guesses at about 30-50 foot circumference. Much lower than the height you gave.
Hard to eyeball but would say 200 feet and lower, down to just over 100. Watching a few planes whiz buy, would say, low plane height, or even lower
one was 50 feet over the roof. That was a different type. Stand still, for 5 minutes, move slowly out back, when my son called me out few a few of
them. Appear after greeting me, "Don't go in yet, we haven't greeted you yet!" And suddenly appear behind the clump of trees. They tended to arc up
high to go over the roof over town, sometimes just vanished. But under the red light was a saucer when it just flew straight over our roof, that was
after the greeting.
I didn't have a working camera at the time on hand, but knew already from the ones online, that they appear as orbs, but they're crafts under
For example the one that was roughly 50 feet above the roof. That was a guess. I noted it was about the height of one of the evergreens outback, over
the roof, they varied between 50 and 70 feet, roughly. I also had a shout so loud before seeing that, and having my son run outside to witness it
with me. "I'm going to greet you right up close" in a very formal stilted "voice", so loud I thought I heard it audibly and was walking around the
bushes and shed expecting a man to be greeting me. But this wedge shaped, whitish yellowish light, like a lopsided pyramid flew over the roof slowly
and soundlessly, a few townhouses down.
My son with 20/20 vision, said, Mom it looks like that because its flying, he used his arm to demonstrate, nose in the air, tail down, and is a
wingless type of plane, so basically a cigar shaped craft.
So got contact with mine, and though my son didn't get the same degree of contact, he had missing time and shared events, while we had other things
going on. But he seemed to know for some reason when this soundless craft, the red lit one, would go over our roof again and looked like he was in a
trance and I asked if he was connected to it, and he nodded. He couldn't talk very well. Then he pointed to a orb that from a distance was the size
of a tennis ball, so bigger. Like some kind of a censor.
Its not a star. It just won't show up well. If it was closer and you could interact with this, you'd know, but have a hard time, like I do, sharing
it with others because you have to be there, to experience that. Camera's aren't going to show what it is.
Edit to add: the reason I suspected it was a saucer before it chose to fly straight over the roof and be seen, was that in 2008, when we first saw
this, there was a similar report of a sighting just down the road, in between Chilliwack and Abbotsford, that was also a red light, and they pulled
over and saw the saucer. So tend to see that kind of craft as a saucer.
