Received: April 12, 2004 Full Description of event/sighting: I was 9 or 10 years old when I was walking through a alley at approx: 6 or 7:00 p.m. ( I'm sure of this time frame as it was after dinner). As I was walking I looked up in the sky. (for no apparent reason) I was looking at all the stars in the sky on this clear night when I saw something that has puzzled me for almost 30 years. I glared at an object that was approx: 500 feet higher than the large oak trees that it had hovered and traveled and past from the south. This object was round in shape with lights that wrapped around it. I would have to say the size of this object was as big as Niagara Falls in diameter and height. As I stared in astonishment the object came to a complete stop over the tree's.

All that was moving at this time was the lights on this thing and my shivering body. Although I was young I new I was witnessing something with a much greater intellect than ours. I new even at that age, airplanes make noise. Blimps don't fly in the dark, hot air balloons don't fly in the dark and weather balloons don't have florescent lights. This object was completely silent. This object also came to a complete stop directly over me for about 2 minutes then flew over the QEW heading over to the Burlington Skyway eventually out of my sight. I went home shortly after to tell my family of this encounter and was disappointed that no-one believed me. The next day at school (BELL CARIN)I told a couple of class mates of my encounter and to my relief my friend had said he saw the same thing while he was sitting in his tree fort.

I often wonder about that night and have thought about undergoing hypnosis to narrow down the exact date and time so I can go to the Hamilton to see if there was other reports of this sighting. I know there has to be other witnesses from the vehicles on the highway that would have seen this.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
