Duration:2 minutes
The craft slowly climbed and then vanished.

I was sitting in west Vancouver waiting to watch the fireworks that evening when I decided to take out the binoculars. I then thought to look at the moon(visible 24 hours a day). And I noticed a small object moving across my line of sight. When I first saw it I figured it was a weather baloon or, one released by a child. But then upon further examination it appeared to be mettalic and was slowly climbing. I told my dad, he didn't quite believe me(skeptic). And I continued to watch the object and then after I had only been watching it for a few more seconds, it vanished.
