UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Oshawa, Ontario, Canada

Date: 08/unknown/73 Approximately 21:00 hrs Eastern Time.

Approach Direction: Stationary when first seen.

Departure Direction: East

Witness Direction: East

Description: I was standing at the corner of Hortop Street and Rossland Road in Oshawa Ontario. The time was approximately 21:00 hrs. I had just left a variety store and was walking eastbound across the parking lot.

I observed a large round object hovering over what appeared to be the east of Simcoe Street and north of Rossland Road. The object was extremely large as it appeared to the size of approximately 1/2 a city block.

I went back into the store and told my friend to "come outside now!" He did and we both stared at the object for about another 3 (at least it seemed that long) minutes.

The object slowly began to move eastward and because of trees and houses eventually went out of sight. We went further south towards Rossland road to see it again but it was gone. Seemingly vanishing into thin air.

I have over the years told many people of the sighting, but since that night, my friend has refused to speak of, or even admit that we saw the object.

Color/Shape: Colour - Silvery/Aluminum
   Shape - Round
   Lights - red, blue, yellow. (cannot recall if the lights were stationary or circled around the lower section of the object)(cannot recall if the lights blinked on and off or if they remained constant)
   Width (approximate) - 100 to 150 feet across.
   Height (approximate) - 1/4 the width. About 30-40 feet.

Height & Speed: Height of object from ground - 200 to 250 feet.
   Departure speed - 30 to 40 miles per hour.
   Sighting lasted approximately 4 to 5 minutes.

TV/Radio/Press: Not reported to any media. Who would believe a couple of 16 year old kids?

Thank you for allowing me to finally put this on record.
