Newmarket, Ontario Light Seen For A Short Period Of Time
Date: August 25, 2008
Again out for my bike ride. I now pay far greater attention to the skies after seeing this weird light twice now. My entire ride was very uneventful, nothing unusual. As I approached my house, I again notice the strange bright light. This time it did do something different.
As I was headed east, and I noticed the light to the north-east heading south, and close to the horizon, only about 30 degrees above the horizon. The previous 2 sightings of this object, the object was moving towards us and almost directly overhead.
This time it behaved very different. Previously it had traversed the entire sky and faded into the distance, both times taking about a minute or so. This time I only managed to see it for about 10 seconds. It was traveling south, almost across my line of sight. As I slowed down to get a good look at it, it was only about 40 degrees above the horizon (less than half way across the sky) when it simply disappeared. I stopped and tried to see if any trace of it could be seen. There was no moon so it was very dark, I could not make out any object against the stars in the location it was in, or in the path that it was headed. It was as if the light was simply shut off, and nothing could be seen afterwards.
I am by no stretch of the imagination a nut case. I am a computer programmer by trade and I am very logical.
I have no idea how big, how high, or how fast it was traveling. I can tell you this though, if it was as high as a Jumbo Jet (35,000-40,000 feet) then it was travelling at least 15 times faster than a jet and about 30X as big. If it was in orbit, 2,000+ Kilometers, its size would be at least 200x the size of an average visible satellite, and moving at least as fast. If it was lower than either of these, say 5,000 to 10,000 feet, then it would be a much smaller object (about 50 -100 feet) and moving 5x as fast as a small airplane, but dead silent.
I do not know what I have been seeing, but I have never seen anything like it! I have seen planes, helicopters with search lights, comets, meteors, falling stars, and satellites. This was absolutely none of those.
I hope someone else has been seeing this thing and can shed some more light onto what it is! Or at least what they "think" it is.
Like everyone else, I'm just looking for answers. Wish me luck.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
