Date of Sighting: July 17, 2009
Location of Sighting: Edmonton, AB, Canada
Shape(s) of Object(s) (If Known): Too far to tell.
Color(s) of Object(s) (If Known): White when stationary, and flickered colors when in motion
Distance of Object(s) in sky (If Known): Very far, extremely high up
Further Description of Sighting: On July 1st I saw 2 dots of light in the distance around 11pm in the evening moving at high speeds across the sky and coming to abrupt stops. I only observed them for around 15 minutes.
This morning at 3:30am I went to let my dog outside and when I looked up to the sky (north east)I noticed a dot of light moving across the sky too fast and too high up to be an airplane….
I didn’t see cylinders, fireballs, a saucer, or a sphere. It looked like a star in the distance and would suddenly start to travel at a high speed, then slow down into erratic maneuvers, and eventually coming to stop. Then again resuming in a straight line at a high speed and suddenly making a sharp turn… Once it got further up in the sky it did a 3 point triangular pattern, went backwards, zig zagged, sharp turn left and down and back up again a few times… It even did circular and oval maneuvers. It stopped often but seemed to be getting further away and higher in the sky.
When it would be stationary the light seemed to resembled a still source of white light, but when resuming motion it would flicker colors at a rate a bit more than the twinkle of the stars. The flicker rate was never the same, sometimes faster, sometimes slower.
It glided across the sky like a mouse cursor. I didn’t have a camera and it was 4am, so I went to bed.
Hey my name is tristan, I live in the okanagan. Keremeos to be exact. Around the exact same date I observed the same sort of sights and the same time, around 11pm and continuing till about 3am. I saw this for three days in a row at the same times. the same shapes and description that you have given. Especially the flashing lights when they were moving. Have you seen anything else lately? I tried at one time taking pictures of these objects in the sky but froze the digital camera. If you could please email me back it would be appreciated. My girlfriend also witnessed a number of these sightings with me as well.
