Full Description of event/sighting: Heard you on unknowncountry.com and thought I would send in my UFO sighting. I should be able to obtain the actual date because there was an article in the Trentonian paper after I saw it because other people had seen it too apparently.
This sighting was about 3:00 p.m. I think (if my memory serves) I happened to notice orange sparks outside by the mailbox. It was very odd. I thought must be a trick of the light on the trees. (newspaper article later reported another lady was drawn to window by sparks - same day or soon after I think) I couldn't stop wondering about it so I went outside. I stood outside in this small grass field staring at the sky like an idiot. Don't know what the neighbors thought I was doing! I just stared for a long time and didn't even see anything, don't know why I stayed. Then I caught sight of this huge glowing orange ball just hovering over the lake. I watched it for something like 15 minutes (I didn't have a watch on so not sure how long) I walked around the neighborhood just looking up at this ball. It was weird. Other people were outside, but no one else seemed to see this ball in the sky!!!!! I began to think it must be something normal around here. (My first year in Ontario, I'm from BC.) Like a flare from some base operation and nobody thought anything of it (Trenton airforce base is there) Some kids were out in the street and I wanted to say to them, "Do you know what that orange thing is???" But they weren't looking at it, they never noticed it and I felt stupid, so I didn't say anything
My husband thinks it was a flare. But when the article came out other people had seen it, the same day or close to it. It had followed their car.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
