UFO sighting Sat Aug 24/02 in Vancouver, Canada

Saturday Aug 24/02 at 11:59 PM in Vancouver. My wife recieved a phone call at 11:45 from my brother. She then told me that the meteor I was waiting for can be seen in the sky. I told her it was last saturday. I then saw the object she was talking about west. I told her it was an airplane characteristic of the blue and red flashing lights. She then told me my brother also saw it 18 KM away. I said that was impossible. I decided this requires more research. I hauled out my telescope. Spotted the object at 50 power and noticed it was no airplane. Went to 200 power. I then had a clear picture. It was close to the characteristic flying saucer shape. It glowed very intensely. Had a weird rotating sensor beam on the top part of the saucer. It flashed aqua color first and then orange-red second. Much like a rotating spot beam at a 0.5 second rotation. Obviously one beam that could scan orange-red and then aqua. I then took relative size calculations. Today I took bearing calculations at my place and my at my brothers to figure out the distance to the object. I also took an object that looked the same size in the telescope at a distance that i measured to figure out the size. I went over to my brothers who pointed to where he saw it. I used my GPS to get the bearing at his place. Using math I calculated the object was 30 meter diameter at a distace of 200 KM. That puts it over Vancouver Island. The object also moved much like a star in the sky. This indicates that it could not be an object in close orbit. The object must of been under power. My brother watched it for over an hour and me for 45 minutes before it went behind some trees. I can say this was not weather ballon or object burning up in the atmosphere. I cant say this was a Alien space ship, but if it was not, the Earth has developed a new type of ship that is quite impressive.
