Seen UFO shaped like 'snow Angel' in Sky August 31/04 at 9:10pm - 3 witnesses - 25-30 minutes duration

At 9pm EST I went outside to let our house dogs out. I decided since there were no mosquitos evident to sit on the front porch. It was a beautiful clear sky and the full moon hadn't come up yet. I could see many stars above and since we do not live in the city, the lights of the stars were clear. I could see the glow of the lights of the city of Belleville to the south of us.

At approx 9:10pm I noticed a strange orangy object on the Western horizon above the hill to the northwest of us. I called my husband out to see this as this object was moving towards our house and it was bigger than any plane I have seen. He came out and viewed the object in the sky. Then went inside to get his binoculars. When he came out and viewed the object with the binoculars he noticed its unusual shape.

"I determined that it was shaped like a snow angel with a pointed head, that is it was an elongated object with four fan-like projections at its sides. The pointed head had a blinking light. As it approached its colour changed to white." We then called our son out to view this object in the sky. He confirmed the same shape that we had both observed.

It was moving from west to east and heading right over our house. All three of us viewed this object coming towards the house and its shape and size. It seemed to be a glowing cloud with a flashing light. The 'angel' shape was glowing and you could see stars through it. However at the 'pointed' end you could not see stars through it. We also noted 5-6 aircraft all heading the same direction around the object. Some did appear to be circling the object. The object was considerably larger than any of these planes.

Approximately 9:15pm-9:20pm, the objects light stopped blinking. But, the cloud 'angel' continued to move towards our house (easterly).

At this point (approx 9:25pm) Gordon went back into the house. My son and I stayed out to watch this object. It was now almost directly over the house. I had the binoculars and watched as a bright circular orangey-yellow object flew out of the cloud. This object was about the size of 1/4 of the full moon. The object headed directly north at a much faster speed than the cloud had been moving. The object appeared to be about 1/8 the size of the full moon when it reached the stars that make up the Big Dipper. It reached that position in the sky in about 30 seconds. The object then turned 90 degrees and headed back west. It disappeared moments later. The cloud disappeared within 5 minutes of the object leaving it.

All planes then seemed to have left the vicinity when we looked for them again after the object disappeared. All the ones we had observed around this object that is.

It should be noted here that at no time did we hear any noise from this object. We could hear and see the planes, but, not this other object in the sky.

Note: It was moving laterally to its length across the sky.
