Shape: Light
Duration: 1-2 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
incredibly fast tranveling large white ball of light over scarborough

The sighting occured while I was driving home with my girlfriend at 11 or 12 at night, travelling what I believe would be northbound on Fogg Rd (a couple miles inland from the ocean) in scarborough.

My girlfriend was driving, and I was slouched in the front passanger seat, looking out the windshield. I saw a large, intensely white (at least it appeared white compared to the dark surroundings) ball of light fly through the sky, parallel to the road, traveling in the same direction as the car. The light was travelling incredibly fast and appeared to be rather low to the ground, as it was out of sight within one second (however, my range of vision was limited, as I could only see it once it became visible through the windshield, rather than directly overhead).

By the time I could react it had vanished into the trees. My immediate thought was that it was some very large comet that had passed through the earth's atmosphere and was waiting to hear some deafening boom. But I never heard a thing over the car radio.

My girlfriend claims that she did not notice it, which does not surprise me, as she was a bit tired and concentrating on driving, as well as the fact that the light disappeared almost instantly from view.
