Whitehorse, Yukon Bright Light With Ring Of Light Around It
Date: August 21, 2007
Time: 1:50 a.m.
Location of Sighting: Grey Mountain road overlooking town.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Very bright circular white light.
Full Description of event/sighting: My friend and I were driving down from a lookout on road just south of town. We were out trying to see the Northern lights and see the stars. We saw a few shooting stars and lots of satellites etc. As we were driving down the road, I stopped again because I wanted to see if the Northern lights were out. We got out and we're staring upwards, almost due north. Then suddenly a very bright white light came through. It was like a perfect circle and was nothing like a shooting star. I doubt it could have been a meteor as there was no tail behind it. And, unlike a shooting star, it didn't not seem to cross the sky, instead it grew very bright and was almost like it was coming right down on us. Imagine someone shining a light down on you from a deck or patio as you stand underneath then extending their arm down so the light goes closer to you. This was very bright and moving slowly. It stopped for a bit and seemed to kind of hover, then started moving slowly westward. Then it disappeared as it had come. The light was very white and there was a ring of light around the object. Like a halo almost. it appeared then became increasingly bright to where we had to shield our eyes for a second then stayed that way then slowly started moving and as it kept moving it disappeared. The whole thing lasted about 20 seconds. I have no idea what it was and if anyone knows of any good, well documented UFO sites please repost this. I am curious if anyone else saw anything. Cheers.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
