UFO SIGHTING REPORT
August 5th 2004
Halifax, Nova Scotia Unusual Object
Date: August 5, 2004
Time: Approx: 8:30 p.m.
Thanks for the reply. Sounds good. I think this one is probably
explainable because of the military bases near by but well see
what you can find out.
The details are simple.
Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia (see attached map)
Date: Aug 5th, 2004 around 8:30 PM Camera: Digital Canon
Powershot A70 set to size 1600x1200 set on full auto. Operator:
We were driving in to town, heading south along Highway 118 (in
Dartmouth still) just were it turns into Woodlands drive when I
noticed them from the back left passenger seat. I rolled down
the window and took a few pictures as best I could when the car
was slow or stopped. That would put them approximately out over
the Halifax Harbour between Dartmouth and Halifax. The seemed to
be stationary or if they were moving they must have been very
slow (or at high altitude). The reason I though they were
bizarre is that if they were at altitude, I expect to see at
least a short vapour trail. If they were low, I would have been
able to see detail and they would have appeared to be moving
faster with respect to my position. If they were moving, I would
say it was in a northerly direction, with one object slightly to
the east and behind (south) the other one.
Anyway, they really don't look much different in the photo than
in reality even though the photos aren't great. I was hoping to
get some detail later when I loaded the photos onto the computer
and zoomed in but the quality isn't good enough. They just look
like spots. some of the photos have the tops of buildings in
them that give an idea of how fast we were going. One catches a
power line which shows that I was nearly stationary but there
are still few details. One is really out of focus but I snapped
a bunch to see what I could get. The sky seems pretty light in
the photos for 8:30 now that I look at them but I think I'm
right because we were supposed to be in by 8:00 and we were ~1/2
an hour late.
Let me know if you find anything out. Have fun.
Thank you to the witness for the report and photos.
