Duration: 15 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
|Silent dimly lit object sighted moving rapidly over Southern Ontario
While outside on my 3rd floor balcony smoking on the evening of December 8, 2001 and as observing a regularly scheduled airline flying overhead I noticed a pattern of faint lights almost directly overhead. The lights moved in a west to east direction and maintained a steady speed. Elevation was difficult to assess, however, I estimate it at approximately 1500-2000 ft. The pattern of seven (7) lights formed a "V" similar to a flock of geese. The lights were very dim (similar to a 25 watt bulb at about 100 ft.). There was no visible body to the object as it moved eastward at an increasing rate of speed. There was no audible jet, propeller or rocket sound. The night sky was totally clear and the path of the object did not intersect or come close to the flight path of either nearby major airports (within a 60 mile diameter). The size of the craft would be at least that of a B-52 if not slightly larger, however, the rate of acceleration and our geographic location made me question that assumption immediately.
My interest in UFO's has been skeptical at best ... that is until I became the unexpecting witness to an object which does not fit any available logical explanation which I can arrive at to date.
