Wednesday's night sky over Vancouver, BC played host to a pulsating UFO that was captured on video during skywatching activities from Burnaby Mountain Park on July 27, 2011. The UFO was detected by a night vision camera and tracked for nearly five minutes as it travelled SE to NW before disappearing behind a stand of trees. During this period, the UFO was first seen being overtaken by a second, faster-moving object before amplifying its luminous output in what veteran skywatchers describe as a “power-up” incident. While in flight, the UFO performed multiple power-ups, inviting comparison with another object recorded four nights earlier near Vancouver City Hall. Both UFO’s are featured in a new video available now on YouTube’s SecretMessageTV channel.

Some online respondents to recent reports of UFO’s captured on video in the Vancouver Lower Mainland have cited the International Space Station, Space Shuttle Atlantis, satellites and balloons as the source of these compelling moving images.
NASA Skywatch Tables
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration website, NASA.gov, provides a Skywatch Sightings calculator that enables civilian observers to determine the dates and times when the ISS is visible from their locations. The current table for Vancouver, BC, where the most recent UFO sighting took place, shows how the ISS, while visible at night, is only visible between the hours of 2:00am to 5:00am PST through August 11, 2011.This information places potential ISS sightings at a location on the timeline at least three or more hours later than what Wednesday night’s video capture reveals.
Regarding the accuracy of NASA’s published tables, Joseph E. Pascucci, Jr. from the International Space Station Trajectory Operations office at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston explained to this reporter earlier in June how, under normal conditions, NASA’s projected local sightings times “would not vary significantly from what is published” online.
STS-135 Final Mission
On July 21, 2011 at 5:57am ET, STS-135 Atlantis landed at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, marking the end of the US Space Shuttle program after 30 years in operations of what was reportedly the world’s first manned reusable spacecraft. Regarding the program’s role in expanding human consciousness via the exploration of space, Commander Chris Ferguson told members of the press how “The space shuttle changed the way we view the world, the way we view the universe.” Having completed its final landing six days before Wednesday night’s UFO incident over Vancouver, neither Atlantis nor any other vehicle in the now-retired space shuttle fleet can be considered a likely candidate for the source of such mysterious images.
Only One Flare
Satellite flares are reportedly singular incidents in which vehicle surfaces temporarily reflect sunlight onto the earth. One source describes how flares from Iridium communication satellite antennae can illuminate “a spot on the surface below of about 10 km diameter. To an observer this looks like a bright flash, or flare in the sky, with a duration of a few seconds.” Such descriptions do not match observations taking place over a five minute period in which multiple flares are recorded on video, as was the case during Wednesday night’s incident over Vancouver, BC.
