With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.
August 2nd 2006 : South-West Guelph, Ontario
South-West Guelph, Ontario A Large Orange Ball
Date: August 2, 2006
Time: 9:45 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 3
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Large Orange ball.
Full Description of event/sighting: We were watching a very violent August thunderstorm when my father noticed orange lightening in the South-West over the rural Guelph area. We soon realized that it wasn't lightening, but a very bright glowing orange ball over the tree line. The ball would remain stationary and exceptionally bright for several minutes, then suddenly stopped. This on/off pattern occurred for approximately 12 minutes. It was a clear round object with the orange colour of a flare.
We speculated that it may have been a chemical fire or that a hydro transformer had been hit by lightening. A review of the local news this morning reveals no fires or explosions in the area the previous day/night. It was very bright and any fellow storm watchers should have seen this event. I'm hoping you receive other witness accounts to collaborate our odd sighting.
Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.
