This is interesting to see.
The object hovers and seems to roll from side to side. You can see it pitching about quite clearly, even though the camera is not perfectly still.
You get to see the object slowly drift down towards the tree tops upon which the cameraman says "it's landed"..
He lost sight of it... but watch carefully in the lower left corner where the trees are and you can see the object moving down the mountain side. It
is appears grey against the background of the trees. And before anyone shouts out about the lack of ability to judge size/distance etc.. wait until
the guy zooms out for point of reference...
Did the object actually land a bit further down that mountain?
Anyone in the area who wants to investigate?
I get so frustrated that they didn't focus correctly! It makes my eyes water and want to kick the monitor. However, the movement of the object is
very interesting. Erratic and strange which I have seen before.
Plenty of you in the area then.. Let's try to get rid of this balloon theory.
Is there anything in that area that would possibly use a balloon?
Does anyone know of a balloon that can be controlled in the manner we see in the video.
That would be one big balloon to be seen and filmed from that distance.
well there is a bird that flys by around 24 seconds and a really fast plane at 50 seconds so its bigger then a bird and smaller then that plane
although i do see it come in front of the trees when he thinks he lost it. then its just gone. i hope it isnt a balloon lol never seen a balloon like
I think the paraglider theory is possible, but I have one question. Lets say someone takes off from the ski hill on Grouse (a good take off point).
Where do they land? I used to live on the North Shore and the terrain is covered by trees and houses. Very little flat terrain. Do they land on
residential streets or are they able to maneuver to a schoolyard or empty parking lot - maybe even a gravel river bed such as Seymour River. The
towers in the video are on Mount Seymour and there is a highway that winds its way up the mountain by these towers to the ski area at the top.
Another thought I had was a large remote controlled helium balloon. They had a demo balloon like this at the Canada pavillion at EXPO 86 in Vancouver.
This was just a demo, but the idea at the time was a larger version could be used for heli-logging.
The motion of the UFO does resemble a para glider or maybe a hang glider. You would think you would see the man hanging but the images are all quite
