Location: Châteauguay (Canada), QC
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 10 seconds
Shining orb in bright blue sky (south shore of Montreal) disappeared as I observed the object.

While driving with my brother, a bright light caught my attention high up in the clear blue sky.

I initially thought the object was an airplane, but I quickly realized it was a circular shaped metallic orb that appeared to emitting a bright white light, or it was either reflecting light from the sun. From my point of view the object appeared to be the size of a ping pong ball.

I observed the shining orb for about 5 seconds. The object was moving west, the same direction that we were driving. Within a matter of about 2 seconds the object gradually got smaller (about the size of a pin point) before it disappeared from my sight.

The sighting happened so fast that my brother did not see the object because he was focusing his attention on driving.
