Location: Edmonton (Canada), AB
Shape: Light
Duration:2 hours
4 lights gathered together and moved in patterns in the Canadian sky, Edmonton Alberta

I was sitting with my girl friend on a hill in a local park, with minimal light and watched for about 90 minutes as 4 distinct lights hovered above us, very high up. There was 1 very bright one and 3 smaller ones. At first I thought it was a satelite or something, but it had an unnatural way of speeding up and slowing down, not drasticly but enough to notice with the eye. The lights also gathered together fairly close in the sky at times and spread out again. And would travel in one direction for a while before curving back at a very sharp turn into another direction. Cloud cover finally blocked them out and I had to pack it in around 3 am when they were lost.

Nothing I could think of would be able to travel with no com trail, no blinking lights, so far up in the sky they're mere dots, zig zagging and changing direction so quickly and with no sounds or anything. It was the strangest thing iv ever seen in the sky before.

((NUFORC Note: We will correspond with the witness, in order to establish whether the lights might have been advertising lights. Such a possibility does not seem likely to us, but that has to be ruled out. PD))
