Full Description & Details

I was out at the time with my mother walking the dog on new years eve. It had snowed a bit and we sent out to let me play in the snow. As we walked down Eglington Avenue we stopped to look up at the sky to se if there were more snowclouds. The evening was quite well llit, with some patchy snow clouds. AS we looked we saw a very bright object get progressively bigger/brighter over a period of about 10 seconds - and whatever it was eventually turned to reveal a huge flame tail and a leading cyliinder object. Given it was so bright you couldn't make out any details in the leading cylinder despite staring at it to see more. It was totally silent to whole time. My mum and I observed it move quite slowly for about 5 minutes as it headed straight over the Cleveland hills.

Since that time, I have observed weather baloons, meteors, comets, aircraft with afterburners (very loud and obvious), and many other flying objects and have never seen anything comparable to what I oberved back then. I have not seen anything else similar since then.

There were several other people who stopped to watch at the time. My father's friend, who lived at the time over the Cleveland hills in the general direction of where the object headed also observed it it seems minutes after we saw it.

We reported it to the Guisoborourgh Evening Gazette and a story was published with the usual "probably a meteor" story.

Witness Background

Observed the object when a child. Now an electrical engineer, managing a business division responsible for high end security software solutions in a multi-national. Nove relocated to USA
