We both saw it at the same time.

My wife and I were driving home from Sudbury to Toronto. My wife was at the wheel while I tried to get some sleep in the passenger seat on the drive home. About 40 minutes into the drive, my wife woke me, and told me to look to my right (westward)and up. Since we had been admiring the full moon earlier, and how clear it was, I got somewhat irritated and refused. She pulled over to the shoulder got out of the car, came to the passenger side opened the door and told me to look again.

Off to the southwest and under the full moon we saw a gold/green shinny cylinder about the size of a city bus hovering over the tree tops. No noise, no movement. No windows. Just hovering about 500 metres from us.

At first I thought the Northen Lights were way too low in the sky and my wife agreed, and mentioned that the shape and non-movement could not make this the Northen Lights.

The gold/ green sheen flowed in a rhythmic motion from front to back. I looked around to see if any other motorists would stop to see what we were looking at. No-one else was on the road at that hour.

My wife said "Advertizing Balloon?" I grabbed a handfull of road shoulder gravel and one by one threw them to see if I could hit the "balloon". It was too far to hit.

We stood there for about 4 minutes looking up, and out at the highway to see if other motorists would also stop. Not a single car passed nothbound or south.

With no noise, the cylinder moved south west for about 200 metres at slow speed and at the same altitude, then flew straight up at a fantastic speed and disappeared into the distance.

We stood there for another 4 or 5 minutes. Looking up, and to the direction where we had originally seen the object.

We had a good deal of speculation and commenting on what we had just seen. We are both sensible people. Non-drug users. Responsible professionals in our job fields. Yet nothing in our minds can make any reason of what we saw. I had to wait until she got to bed before I could find this web site and relay this to you. My wife wants this to become a "non-event", or people will thing "we're crazy".

I may be crazy; she may be crazy; but there is NO WAY we could be crazy at the same time.
