Description: At approximately 2:00 a.m. this morning our dog came to my bedside and nudged me awake. I assumed she wanted to go outside, but she refused, which was very unusual. Upon returning to my bed I saw a large white light moving east to west to the south of the cabin at about mid-window height. It was 2:07 a.m. I called to my wife to look out the window and she also saw the object. It was not a star as it was much too close and large as it was at the tree line across the lake about a quarter of mile away. After a few seconds, another object also came from the west to east at about the same level and distance and approached the first object. This object seemed to have a yellowish/green tint towards its front. The objects slowly moved directly toward one another and then stopped and after a few seconds, at unbelievable speed shot west and out of our vision. We discussed what we had seen as we both saw them very clearly over a period of approximately 30-45 seconds. They were not traditional aircraft as there was no noise coming from them and given their distance and height we could have heard an aircraft as floatplanes frequent the area. It was a warn night so we had all our windows open.
At 2:10 a.m. we again saw another object coming again from the east heading west at about the same height and distance. The object seemed to have a bright light radiating from its front that extended well in front of it, like a spot light. It continued moving slowly to the west until it was also out of sight. Nothing further was observed.
These lights were large and acting in a prescriptive pattern. The speed in which the first two objects finally moved direction was faster than I have ever seen anything move. I have had significant experience around fighter jets.
The weather conditions were mostly cloudy; stars were barely visible, and the wind was from the south at about 10 miles per hour. Our location was Kanoke Island on the east end of Sabaskong Bay, Lake of the Woods, approximately 15 miles northeast of Morson, Ontario. The location is quite isolated.
I immediately documented what we saw and reviewed it further the next morning. I wrote up a statement and sent to the OPP within the next few days.
