UFO Sighting Report - Canada

Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO.

With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.

May 18th 1998 : Newmarket, York Region, Ontario


Location: I was in Newmarket, york Region, Ontario, Canada

Date: May 18 1998 probably around 11pm

Approach Direction: crawling slowly north

Departure Direction: slashed downwards across the sky disapearing in a red trail

Witness Direction: we were in a bird watching tower, facing east

Description: three friends and i were in a bird watching tower in a conservation area just north of davis drive on main street in newmarket. looking out of the east side of the tower, we all looked at the sky, and all of us saw this small white light that was about the size of a star, but brighter and obviously closer, fairly slowly and steadily was crawling across the sky, i believe in a northern direction. then it stopped and switch directions. we all watched in interest and then it started slashing across the sky in diagonals, then stopping on a dime. we did not want to stop watching even though our hearts were racing, we felt as though if we were to blink, it was moving so fast that it might be right in front of our faces when we opened our eyes again. after about 4-6 minutes of activity in the sky, the object finally slashed downwards in a red flash and disapeared. we did not see anything else that night.. and quickly decided to leave the bird watching tower !

Color/Shape: white at first, just a single bright light which inched very respectably along like i imagine a satellite would or something. then alternated blue when moving diagonal, and also red at the end when it went the fastest and disapeared. seemed to have no direction?? or purpose?

Height & Speed: it looked to be at star height, if you can picture that but since stars are much larger and farther away that what this was, i assume it was smaller, and closer than stars.

TV/Radio/Press: i never heard anything... but the sighting changed my life... it was romantic to have a vision of a universe with other possibilities of life... and it gave me great strength to make changes in my life, and force me to live a less self limiting existence
