19th July 1999

June 15th 1999 : Ontario, Canada

Tuesday, June 15, 1999

Location: Ontario, Canada

At around 11:20 p.m., a Dowling resident was outside looking at the star-studded sky when, out of nowhere, appeared a strange light..."as you turn a light on," he said. It was in the western part of the sky, about 3/4 of the way up from the horizon. Then, it got brighter and bigger and went out. Where the light disappeared, another light appeared, which was a lot smaller than a star. This second light went away slightly to the right at a 45° angle and vanished. The sighting lasted about 5 seconds.

June 22nd 1999 : Sudbury, Ontario

Tuesday, June 22, 1999 (reported on Sunday, July 11, 1999)

Location: Sudbury, Ontario

At approximately 11:45 p.m., a Sudbury resident noticed a reddish orange light travelling from south to north. He thought that it was probably a plane heading for the Sudbury airport even though it seemed to be pulsating instead of blinking. He was about to turn away when the light suddenly got brighter and another light lifted straight up from it, sat above it for a minute and then took off at high speed to the northwest. He went out for a better look with his binoculars, but the lights were gone.

He stayed outside for a few more minutes and was about to go back inside when he saw two reddish orange lights coming towards New Sudbury from the southwest. The lights were travelling side by side, with one slightly ahead of the other and passing under the clouds. "They were much brighter than any other stars or planets and moving at a steady pace," he said. "I watched them with the binoculars but couldn't make out any kind of distinct shape about them. They then seemed to get brighter and a light would rise up from the front one about every 5 to 10 seconds and then bank around and head back towards downtown Sudbury. The back one also had lights rising from it, but at a much faster rate than the front one and these lights were much smaller and only red in colour."

He said that the smaller lights were also banking around and heading towards downtown at a high rate of speed. The two main lights then started to curve slowly towards the northwest and seemed to just fade out. The sighting lasted for about 8 to 10 minutes. He never saw them again, even though he stayed out for another 30 minutes or so.

June 27th 1999 : Lively, Ontario

Sunday, June 27, 1999

Location: Lively, Ontario

At around 12:20 a.m., a Lively resident reported that he saw what he thought was a star in the sky. Upon closer examination, he noticed that this steady white light was moving very slowly. It then suddenly sped up and disappeared into the night sky at a 45° angle. The sighting lasted between 2 and 5 seconds.

Early July 1999 : River Valley, Ontario

Early July (received anonymous call on July 10, 1999)

Location: River Valley, Ontario

An elderly resident from River Valley reported that at around 10:30 p.m., she saw a great big light travelling from the northwest and heading east. It was about the size of a plane, then it suddenly disappeared. The sighting took place during the same time period of the wind storm that damaged trees and property.

July 4th 1999 : Providence Bay, Manitoulin Island, Ontario

Sunday, July 4, 1999 (reported on Sunday, July 11, 1999)

Location: Providence Bay, Manitoulin Island, Ontario

At around 9 p.m., while camping at Providence Bay, a family of four saw an unusual object in the sky. The family dog was the first to "sense" something strange. They described it as a single white light which travalled straight across the horizon, from east to west. It then flared up twice and disappeared. There was no sound.

July 12th 1999 : South Bay, Manitoulin Island, Ontario

Monday, July 12, 1999 (Reported on Thursday, July 15, 1999)

Location: South Bay, Manitoulin Island, Ontario

A couple camping out at their camp on Manitoulin Island couldn't sleep because of the heat so they decided to lay down on the deck of their boat. As they watched the sky, they spotted a silver object as it came in from the west, stopped and reversed direction without turning around. The time was between 4 and 5 a.m.

July 12th 1999 : Chelmsford, Ontario

Monday, July 12, 1999

Location: Chelmsford, Ontario

While fishing at Vermillion River, a Chelmsford resident saw an unusual light that came in from the west and headed south at a 20° angle as it disappeared behind the treetops. Then about 2 seconds later, he watched as the light came up from behind the treetops, heading in the same direction it originally came from, at an incredible speed. The time was approximately 10 p.m. and the night was clear. He said the light looked like a falling star. It never flashed and it was yellowish-blue in colour. There was no sound.
