Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
I was walking to the bus stop on Rome street at around 8:00PM after night school class. Suddenly, a blueish light sphere in the sky cought my eye. At first sight, I thought it was a planet because it was so bright, but I then noticed it was moving slowly so I started eliminating the facts of what it couln't be.

Fact 1- Even though it was as bright as Venus or possibly more, it couln't be a planet, because it was moving.

Fact 2- Air planes flew by higher up in the sky, so its altitude suggested it definatly couln't be the space station or a satilite.

Fact 3- Comparing it to a plane or hellicopter, their were no flashing lights on its sides, or under it, or over it. Just a bright white ball of light.

Fact 4- No sound was coming from it. At that altitude, about that of a small plane, or hellicopter, I would have been able to hear sound coming from it, yet there was none.

Fact 5- As it passed over me and headed away from me, the bright light/sphere simply faded away after about 30 seconds.

Fact 6- It couldn't have disapeared into the thin clouds in the distance, cause it wasn't high enough. Plus I could see faint stars through those clouds, so I would have been able to see the object very clearly. I was able to see the light sphere for about 20-30 seconds at most.

What was interresting too is that during 14 minutes after the sighting of the light sphere, I saw two satellights and a shooting star near the constellation Cassiopeia. I also saw a dot (like the appearence of a satellite) at the altitude of a satellite traveling about twice as fast as the previous satellite I saw a second ago. I'm wondering if this could be a UFO aswell.

Let me know what you think about my sighting and if anyone has seen similar objects.

((NUFORC Note: Description by witness appears to us to be quite accurate. The ISS passed over this area of Canada at approximately the time indicated by witness. We wonder whether the date and time above are precisely correct. PD
