Full Description & Details

While waiting for 24Z, I was seeing a few lights (airplanes) in the sky and thinking if I knew the trajectory and the timing of the ISS, it was dark enough from this vantage point I could witness its crossing. Almost before I could finish that thought, I saw an eerie light; no, it was lights moving out of the northwest sky leisurely toward the southeast. UFO? I dismissed that thought immediately and got out of the car for a better look and thought I heard a swishing sound. Could I have heard anything? About that time the scanner announced EB 24Z had cleared the detector and several cars crossed the tracks so background noise was suddenly higher than it had been. About that time I saw the headlights of 24Z and he started sounding his 14L so further listening was out of the question.

As I was casually gazing toward the NW I was seeing a couple planes and then a light which looked different started toward the SE. It started as one light but as it was getting in front of me, it appeared as several including a separate one, same track, same speed but trailing a second or two of arc behind the first (cluster.) One or two pieces brightened temporarily as if a match were being struck but then returned to the original ephemeral glow. I kept my eyes on this phenomenon until it disappeared.The phenomenon reminded me of pictures of the space shuttle disintegrating on re-entry. This event occurred at 10:52 PM and lasted about 30 seconds and covered about 60 seconds of arc from just north of west to just south of east.

Was this a high altitude earth-grazing meteor cluster from the Bootids? Or possibly a tow plane with a pennant glowing with St Elmo’s fire? Perhaps I’ll never know.

[I copied and pasted from my daily journal.]

Other Comments

The fact I thought I heard a "swishing" sound (which ambient noise levels prevented me from being sure of) led me to think a small plane pulling an advertising banner might have been returning late (after dark) to a nearby private airport. Since small craft can operate without filing a flight plan (I think) there may be no way of determining this. However, after reading a couple posts on your site (which I was Googled to), the date and time of the phenomenon led me to send this report. The similarities were compelling. Over the years I have seen many sights in the night sky which a non-critical or inexperienced observer might find unexplained but I know how illusory normal things can at times appear. In this case, I'm kind of leaning toward the Bootids.

Full Description & Details

While on my deck at Long Beach Ontario Canada, myself and four others noticed four bright objects in the sky. These looked high enough to be shooting stars but were in formation with one another and had tails like a comet. Whatever we saw was moving at a good speed but much slower than a shooting star. It was moving from West To North East for aprox 30 Seconds before fading away.

Full Description & Details

i went outside for a cigg. when i noticed small darting lights above my head. For thirty years ive tried to see another sighting im fifty years old now. So i always look to the sky too see if i can see anything. and this time i wasnt dissappointed !! iI saw only one then two then three and i started to get excited>> i took off my glasses to check if i could see them without the glasses. And i could >> I want you too know i wasnt drinking , I dont do drugs.\ And i live with grandchildren and my son,>>> by the time i finished my cigg. I went into my room to get my binoculers. Too see if what i was seeing i was seeing . I got a better look at this dark mass, the sky around it was moveing but the dark mass wasnt. The size of the mass was about full moon size. I couldnt tell how far i was from this mass. But i could see little darting lights at this time i think i saw about thirty of these lights, though i couldnt say that i counted them im just guessing. Because everywhere by now i could see them going all over the place . The one thing i did was cover one eye too see if i was seeing things then the other eye but they were still there. i guess i was trying to make sure i wasnt just trying to see them as i know the eyes can fool a person.BUt everything i tried proved to me i was seeing these objects. I observed some of them going at a fast rate then stopping on a dime. then i saw some of them change direction in a 45degree turn and excelerate beyond what ive ever seen, except the siteing of one ufo in my twentys 21 or 22 . some dove toward the ground and i would loose sight of them , some went from horizon too horizon,I watched these lights and i saw a jet go overhead as were only ten miles from PDX across the river and they stayed what seemed to me right in the overcast clouds and some just under the clouds . As i listened to the jet i knew i should be able to hear these objects and i didnt hear a thing after or before the jet. Except the cars on the road every once in awhile. I expected to see some kind of jets out of portland too come catch these objectsas i saw no response. I didnt report this to the police or the authorities as i didnt want to be ridiqued. this happened on the 24 of june

Other Comments

Ive studied about UFOs for thirty years. I believe ive read just about most of the history of UFOs all because of my first siteing. ive looked to the skys so much that im familure with 99 % of whats up there and this ive never seen before. i just hope this helps .

long comet-like lines

Color of Object(s):

orange

Full Description & Details

I was sitting on my balcony and saw three orange lines in the sky. I looked closer and they looked like 3 comets with long tails all flying in formation, horizontally across the sky over downtown Toronto. I had time to stare at them for almost 30 seconds until they faded off into the distance. They almost looked like shooting stars, but they were orange and moving much slower across the sky. One was bright, and the other two faded in and out but remained the same distance from the single bright one. At one point it looked as though there were up to four dim tails around the bright one. It was difficult to tell if they were all individual objects flying in formation, or all part of one big object. They looked like they were only a few thousand feet above the ground.
