Location: Kingston (Canada), ON
Shape: Circle
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Circular silent light descending in a half circle from approximately 5-thousand feet through to 4500 feet in a cloudless, evening sky.

During the evening of July 6 2012, I witnessed a bright, noiseless object descend from approximately 5-thousand feet in a tight, half circle pattern, to approximately 4500 feet. This sighting took place due south of Kingston, Ontario Canada. It lasted 5-seconds.

When I asked several potential witnesses standing in close proximity to me if they had seen the object, they said they had not as they were chatting. I also suspect some of the group would have had their view blocked by an overhanging canopy from the entrance of the commercial establishment. I was sitting on a knee wall at the outer perimeter of the canopy.

The object, while descending, went from a starlight intensity (over the course of a second or so) to extremely bright (for 3 seconds or so) then back to its original intensity and blinked out. This occurred as the object arced through a half circle pattern away from my location, and seemingly on a 45 degree angle downward.

The best I can describe the object would be several times larger than Venus and many times its brightness. I failed to call out to anyone in close proximity to me simply because I was utterly spellbound by the object.

The sky, where the object appeared, was cloudless. I could see several stars behind where the light had been once it blinked out.

The distance south to Lake Ontario from my location has since been calculated to be a mile. The object appeared at a 1 O'clock position (about 70 degrees) from my point of observation. I believe the object was midpoint between myself and the lake.
