Appearance / Description of Object(s)
The Object was V Shaped. It had 7 lights, all of equal luminosity, all in tight, unflinching formation. The lights were just barely dimmer than the stars next to them, but they made up for it in being about 2 times larger than the most visible star in my sight. Whereas stars mostly appear to be white with a very vague blue tinge, these lights appeared to have a more orange tinge. The lights' -relative- size from where I stood was just slightly smaller than the flat end of a pencil's eraser. They were equally spaced along the object. The -relative size- of the entire object was only a bit larger than the width of three fingers put together. Body either appeared to be chameleon-like/invisible or perhaps just itself in the shape of that same V, as opposed to a more complete triangle. I would guess that its actual size was around 1/2 the size of one, average city block.
Size of Object(s)
The -relative size- of the entire object was only a bit larger than the width of three fingers put together. The -relative- size of each light from where I stood was just slightly smaller than the flat end of a pencil's eraser. I would guess that the entire object's actual size was around 1/2 the size of one average city block (but I'm being conservative).
Description of Area / Surroundings
Its a park just off of my neighbourhood. Standard walking park: benches, trees, bike path. The ridge I was on overlooks a more forested area and the Bow River. It also has a groovy view of the downtown core. There are no power plants, military bases, anything of that nature, etc. near the park.
Full Description & Details
I was walking my dog along Lynnwood Ridge at around 7:55 PM. It was entirely uneventful for the first five minutes. At 8:00 I started looking up at the stars because the dog was just sniffing at the ground contentedly. And because I happen to like stars. So, I'm staring up at the sky, directly East, wishing I knew what bloody constellation I was staring at, when suddenly I note something moving in between the patch of stars. It was 7 lights forming a distinct V-Shape, and it was moving slowly away from me (its point was directed away from me). It was completely, ABSOLUTELY silent.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Not any objects that I'm aware of!
I'm a female 17 year old high school student. Predictably, I have no job.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Before the incident I had an interest in UFO's (as well as an interest in most anything paranormal), and generally believed that such objects existed, though I rarely think of their origins (because, ack, aliens give me the willies), as obviously such a large amount of sightings from such a large array of people can't -all- be false. Afterwards, its essentially the same, except, wee, I have a story of my own to share now. Hurrah! Before my sighting, I read about UFOs on occasion; maybe once every 2 months or so.
I can only imagine how bass-ackwards this whole thing came out, regardless of how well worded it was in my head. Sorry! Hee.
