Location: Montreal (Canada), QC
Shape: Light
Duration:00:01
Suburbs of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, bright light, shadow of possible large craft.

It was 12:45 in the morning, I was lying in bed listening to the radio and all of the surrounding trees outside my window went dark for about 2 seconds as if something large passed overhead. I got out of bed and looked out the window but saw nothing. Then about a half hour later I saw a bright light, that I thought looked something like a shooting star. What made it different than a star is it made an abrupt angle downward and dissapeared behind some trees. I listened to hear if something crashed, like a meteor or something, but I heard nothing. It was a very bright, white light, something like a firework, with a short tail. Again, there was no sound. I called the local radio station to see if anyone had phoned in but no one had. I then called the police station to see if anyone called there with a weird sighting, but no one had called there either. I do realize that me lying in bed is the perfect place for me to fall asleep or doze off and imagine something, but right after I saw the trees in the back go dark I woke up my Dad and told him. Then I went back to bed. That's when I saw the bright light fall behind the trees. I didn't see any shape or form, just a light with a short tail. I might also mention that my radio was on the whole time and at no time was there any kind of signal disturbance.
