UFO Sighting Report - Canada
March 4th 2009 : Stratford, Ontario
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Stratford, Ontario Canada
Date: March 4 2009
Time: 12:30 p.m. and 2:15 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1 in the first sighting, 4 in the second
Shape of objects: Round
Weather Conditions: Clear
Description: At approximately 12:30 p.m. I was sitting in my car on my lunch break when I noticed in the sky to the north, two aircraft. They were flying a distance apart, but heading in the same southwesterly direction. I believed these to be ordinary passenger planes. I watched them fly overhead, then suddenly an orange light appeared out of nowhere. The sky was clear and this object was quite visible. It was flying lower than the planes and moving west. Suddenly it circled north and after watching it for about 30 seconds or so, it just vanished.
Then at approximately 2:15 p.m. I was again outside on break when I noticed another plane flying in a southwesterly direction. I was looking north from my car window, and when the plane moved out of my field of vision (passing over top of my vehicle) there suddenly appeared four glowing orbs. They were also orange in colour and were moving around in one area of the sky in an erratic fashion. Up, down, left, right--two of them looked at one point like they were going to hit each other. It looked as though whatever this was was putting on an aerial show. I watched this for approximately 2 - 3 minutes. One by one, they disappeared from sight--just faded and vanished. They didn't fly away, they just weren't visible any longer.
I'm hoping someone else has seen the same thing, or perhaps the pilots of those planes have reported something.
UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website to see if this is what might have been seen and received the following reply:
Good Evening, John:
After watching the video, I really don't believe that this is what I saw.
There were four objects that appeared to have an orangish glow, but these did not simply drift about. The movements of these objects was simply astounding.
They moved about in a rapid manner in all direction, yet stayed relatively close together. At one point, these objects formed a perfect square.
Imagine, if you will, four spots in the sky taking the shape of a square. The two objects in the bottom corners of this square rose upwards at an angle towards the top centre of the square, rising between the upper two objects but higher. They came extremely close to hitting one another, then sharply dropped back down, angling away from each other. The movement kind of looked like a "toast" of wine glasses.
After this spectacular show, all four objects once again began to "dance" around in the sky, moving in all direction.
These objects had very bright (strong) white lights on bottoms of them. They were clearly visible, even though this was a clear and sunny day.
I wish I would have had my camera with me! I carry it with me now all the time, and if I ever get the chance again, I'll be ready :)
Thank you for your reply. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate.
