8 Red Orb Lights over large City of Toronto.

In Toronto, Ontario Canada--On October 14th, at approximately 7:30pm, I was out walking my dogs. Looking south towards Lake Ontario, I noticed approximately 8 very bright red orbs travelling in an upward motion. I thought how weird.

I have grown up around aircraft as my Cousin and my Uncle have been private pilots with their own planes. Both of my cousins have worked for a huge airline for the past 18 and 35 years, respectively. I knew planes don’t have red bright lights they have white lights, as I watch them all the time.

So as I walked south getting as much of a better view as possible, I tried to come up with a logical explanation. I thought, could it be the Snowbird’s practicing at night with weird red lights? The formation was so close together, with 2 stranglers coming up from the rear, I knew it was not average pilots.

Well, I know the Snowbird’s are out in Western Canada, so scratch that. I then thought, maybe they are some type of Rescue Helicopters in training.

I am now running south, down the hill with my bulldog dragging me, I am going so fast all the while watching the Red Orb Formation.

I see a Gentleman out in front of a very exclusive Condo standing on the sidewalk staring at the Red Orbs. I pull up beside the Man, and ask him if he thinks they are Rescue Helicopters. The Man approximately 55 years old says, “So I am not crazy”? I laughed and said no. We watched together kind of dumb-founded. All of a sudden a huge plane/jet with a white light (allowing us to see how big the jet was) flies so close and directly behind the Red Orbs, it completely blew us away. I looked at the Gentleman, and we are clearly trying to process, so I say, “How insane was that Pilot”? The Red lights remained on for a second or two more, and then in the snap of a finger ALL at the same time they were gone.

The Man starts yelling, ``Where are they? Where did they go”? We both discussed the fact that any aircraft is not allowed to turn there lights off, and even though it was dark out the lights from the City would have allowed us to see the outline of an aircraft. There was NOTHING there. In the blink of an eye they were gone.

I was then heartbroken as I did not video record it ! with my phone, and did not phone my son studying at home to look out t he window. It was all too fast, too surreal, even though it probably lasted 15 to 20 minutes.

I ran home without even getting my neighbor`s name (we were not even thinking), with promises that we would run into each other soon.

I called my cousin this morning, Oct. 15th, 2013. It just so happened, that she was coming into Toronto International Airport heading up an Overseas Crew, at the same time I saw the red orbs. She landed at approximately 7:30pm, on Oct. 14th, 2013. There were Emergency Ground Crews all over the runways. This is highly unusual. She had not been notified that there was any landing emergency, nor an aircraft needing assistance on the ground.

She told me her flight would have been placed in a holding pattern or at the very least they would have been notified that there was a possible emergency. She was not. She has not noticed this in all her years of flying.

As soon as she can, she will be speaking to a pilot about this, and will be looking for the pilots she worked with after hearing my story.
