At first we thought it was an airplane. There was absolutely no sound… then we absolutely knew it was no airplane.”
The story reported in the Squamish Chief news starts with Rob Freeman and Marcus McNabb from the Centre for the Scientific Study of Atmospheric Anomalies in London, Ontario, traveling to British Columbia to meet with Charles Lamoureux, a skywatcher, amateur astronomer and ufologist who has acquired a number of video capture devices and combined them into one device he calls the Skywatcher’s Mobile Unit. Lamoureux has produced his own documentary, Nocturnal Lights, and does paranormal research for Simon Fraser University. Lamoureux directed Freeman and McNabb to Squamish, home of the Stawamus Chief, a 2,297 ft (700 meters) granite monolith that is sacred to the indigenous Squamish people and a site known for UFOs, orbs and other sky anomalies. The filmmakers set up their own sophisticated night vision equipment on July 22nd and waited. At 10:59 p.m., Freeman says they saw a “huge yellowish white ball of light” that “appeared out of nowhere & then proceeded to go into the woods.”
While we’re waiting for that report, let’s speculate on what they saw. The Squamish area and its nearby surroundings is a hotbed of UFO sightings, as a search on the UFO Hunters website will attest. For example, in late February 2017, police in Squamish received a call from a resident who reported multiple moving lights over Lions Bay. Squamish also has had a number of Bigfoot sightings. Are these paranormal events linked to the sacred mountain?

Here's the video. Though I guess the mountain wasn't really scared.
That seems to be someone walking with a torch.

Hang on, I don't get it. They have this yuge rig with godknows how many cameras and we only get to see one?
No no no. Wheres the rest? I want to see natural light of this object, could provide interesting clues.
I had all the cameras turned on, but not recording & we were standing around talking when Breslin of our group spotted what we thought was a plane. I turned & hit the record on the night vision scope and because it was moving fairly quickly, I didn't dare take my eye of the screen to turn the other cameras on. As it turned out, it then went into the woods & there was only 10 seconds. So we were very lucky to get even the 10 seconds.

The video was reviewed and determined not to be a plane, a drone or a meteor.
The Squamish area of this part of B.C. is also a hotspot for ufo activity. The video has been sent to Mufon for their report.

How could they rule out it was a drone? And who reviewed the video with that conclusion?
Lamoureux was disappointed to miss the sighting. He fact-checked the video the crew immediately sent, confirming it was not a plane, drone, satellite or meteor, after no such YVR documented routes were found.
