Out There stories relating to "Astronomer UFO"
Monday, March 3, 2014
This authentic video was shot at 8:44 PM on Feb 28 over Vancouver by Charles Lamoureux. In his detailed account posted on his YouTube channel, he states, "this bright UFO was not a satellite or anything else as per Heavens Above
and other satellite applications, not an iridium flare, etc. Sighting occurred at 844 PM over Vancouver north descending behind the local mountain range in the Cypress park region. I must have seen over a dozen in a hour descend exact same area, some flashing, faster, but this one was so bright for sure there were more witnesses."
The objects are not identifiable. Therefore this sighting is a confirmed unknown.

Finally, a real sighting. This object was observed and photographed by an amateur astronomer and seen by many thousands of witnesses two nights in a row. It is an authentic unknown for the following reasons: 1, it was seen by many witnesses; 2, an astronomer (amateur, in this case) observed it through a telescope and noted anomalous characteristics such as color change that would be very hard to accomplish with a lighted balloon or quadcopter; 3, it did not fade out or suddenly disappear, but rather darted off, as noted by the astronomer.
At present, the internet is filling up with the latest in hoaxes: the lighted quadcopter being flown at night. They're easily identifiable and, frankly, to someone like your Out There editor, another reminder of just how moronic the hoaxers are, and how dull their output is.

This is obviously a genuine story. There is no question of hoax here. As to what the object the astronomer photographed could be, that is an entirely different question. He offers the comment that it must be of earthly origin, but there is actually no way to determine its origin, let alone what it is. A genuine unknown. The claims that this was a child's toy balloon are absurd. For more information, listen to Dreamland 11/2/12, as Linda Moulton Howe interviews BOTH the astronomer and the professional helicopter pilot who observed the object in different places on different days.
