Edmonton, Alberta UFO An Elongated Object
Date: December 21, 2004
Time: 5:18 pm

Full Description of event/sighting: I was driving home on 114 St, in slow rush hour traffic and noticed a bright light in the sky directly ahead and to the left of the direction I was driving (around 10-15 degrees). It was around 5:15 at this point. It looked to be a star at first, but this was impossible, as the moon/stars/sky was covered by a thin cloud layer at this time. At a stop light, I was able to tell that it was moving by judging its movement against trees/lampposts. As it got closer I could see 3 lights, not just 1: 1 large on in the center, 2 smaller/dimmer ones to each side, equidistant from the center. At this point I decided it was a plane, as the lights looked familiar. However, by 5:18, a few blocks further south I could see it more clearly, and figured out how close it was more accurately. What immediately struck me was how slow it was moving. It seemed to be at 50-100 meters altitude. If this is how high it really was, it seemed to be travelling at 10-20 kph. This fact, along with the amount of lights (6-8 were now visible, giving off white/pink/orange colours), leads me to believe that it was not a plane or the local police helicopter. As it was moving in the opposite direction that I was, I did not have enough time to memorize exactly how the lights were positioned, but they gave the impression of an object of a similar (but more elongated) shape in the NIDS report on "flying triangles." At no point was a "fuselage" or any visible body visible.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
