Location: Vancouver (Canada), BC
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:30 minutes
Small black cylinder seen hovering over Vancouver B.C.

Was at the Pacific National Exebition with family. The weather was clear and warm with a few wispy clouds. Observed black cylindrical object hovering motionless in a vertical attitude towards the south at approx 15:30 while kids were playing in zero G room. Pointed object out to other family members but they showed little interest. Found this reaction a little bit puzzling since the object was clearly unusual. Attempted to take a picture of it with my digital camera but even at full zoom it only took up one or two horizontal pixels and perhaps four vertical pixels. So I would guess the object was no larger than a mini minor approx 1 mile away and several hundred feet in altitude. Observed object for a good 15 minutes while walking back to the car. It may as well have been a fixed hole in reality because it didn't move even slightly. Before we got back to the car I decided to drive towards the object on the way home in the hope of making an identifiction but for some reason once I started driving I forgot all about it. I didn't think about it again until I had been home for some time so I have no idea when the object departed. Have not seen it again in the 3 and a half years since.
