"This isn't actually a boat.. It looks like...ummmm.. a saucer"

Quote from soundtrack of video (recorded on Panasonic VHS camcorder) just before 8.34 p.m.
I do not recall saying this at the time (May 1997) and only noticed the comment when I finally used decent headphones to listen to the commentary in 2008.

The camera used regular VHS tape and I had it set to x12 optical zoom. A x5.5 magnification teleconverter was attached which provided x66.

The far shore (behind the lights) is approximately 19 miles from where the camera was located just west of Oakville harbour.
