Location: Fredericton, NB
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
|While looking into the early night sky facing S/W from our location a large bright object appeared having just passed by a bright crescent moon. This bright light had not been visible to us prior to the passing of the moon. This light was extremely bright and the light was a steady white light. Neither pulsating or fading in intensity.
We attempted to view with binoculars and in doing so the image was fuzzy but there was an outward appearance as if this light was in fact three or four separate bright lights joined into one object. There were absolutely no running lights as would be normal for an aircraft or helicopter. There was no discernible noise. The night sky was clear and the air calm.
This light travelled on a slow steady and constant rate moving from the west north-west to the east south-east in the direction of the Fredericton International Airport. A distance from our observation location of approximately 12 kms. The airport was active with visible aircraft taking off and in the approach area's.
As this bright constant light approached the perimeter air space of the airport it speed which had been constant increased slightly and the entire light disappeared completely from the night sky. There was nothing to indicate the light was an aircraft on an approach for landing. When the bright light literally "switched off" it was still travelling in the same direction and was an estimated height of at least several hundred to a thousand feet in height.
