Cigar-shaped horizontal object with solid yellow lights in Alliston, Ontario.

Just a bit after dusk, I was sitting at my backyard table in Alliston, Ontario. My backyard faces south looking over a farmer's field.

I noticed a cigar shaped (horizontal) object which was heading West at a very rapid rate. The object had very bright yellow lights (not flashing but solid).

It was travelling very fast and only lasted perhaps 5 seconds before vanishing.

I jumped up and ran to the edge of my yard, but there was no more sign of it. It was not too high in the sky and at first I thought it might be either a comet or a drone.

There was no tail or trail behind it and since the lights were solid, I discounted both of these ideas.

While looking for similar pictures on the net for the last few days it closely resembled a picture taken from Mexico in May 2013.
