Location: Didsbury (Canada), AB
Shape: Triangle
Duration:10-15 seconds
At Midnight, both my husband an I were outside gazing at stars when we noticed a large triangular object with a pattern of 5 lights. The lights were very dim, whitish-gray in color and likely would not be noticed other than the fact that we both asked if the other saw them. We heard no sound and saw only the one object. It was not translucent as it clearly blocked the stars above as it traveled across the sky.It traveled North to south until we lost sight of it 10-15 seconds after we spotted it. It’s motion was stealth like and seemed to float. I also noticed an unusually large number of falling stars throughout the evening approx 15 over a couple of hours. Whether this is related I do not know but thought it’s worth mentioning. I have attached a picture to better illustrate our sighting. To offer some credibility of myself, I have been in the finance industry for over 10 years, manager of many staff and offices. I am now the mother of a 3 month old son who I devote my days to.
