This is the original report for the sighting mentioned in UFO Roundup, Volume 9 Number 1. Please note that there is an addition a follow-up courtesy of Brian Vike.

Name: On file

Location: Eganville Ontario, Canada.

Date: December 28, 2003 at 5:35 p.m.

Approach Direction: was just there, did not approach

Departure Direction: did not seem to move, just disappeared

Witness Direction: west

Description: Looked like a star, that was just too large to be one. Looking through binoculars was astonishing. It looked like it had thousands of lights attached to it, almost looked like light lines connected all of the lights. It was very bright, and seemed to change shapes, first circular, then almost like it was an acorn. It stayed in one spot for approximately an hour and a half.

Color/Shape: circle, then almost like an acorn

Height & Speed: no idea, high in the sky

TV/Radio/Press: unknown, would like to know if what it was, or if anyone else seen it

Follow-up by Brian Vike:

Thank you for your reply, here are the answers to your questions.

1.The object had no color, it was made up of the lights, everything was white from how bright the lights were.

2. It was dusk, a very clear night with just a few clouds. The clouds were moving quite fast, but the object stayed still.

3. It changed shapes very slowly from circular to an acorn shape

4. We could only see the lights when we looked through the binoculars, the lights all had strings of lights (it looked like it was actually the string which was lit, connecting to bigger lights.

5. Each light was connected with the string lighting.

6. no sound

7. Not sure how far away it was, wasn't that close, had to use binoculars, without them it looked like the biggest star anyone could imagine.

8. My husband is the only other witness, it was him who decided to get the binoculars and take a better view.

9. We did not see any other aircraft in the sky.

At first we thought it was something from the base in Petawawa flying over, until we looked through the binoculars.We did take a picture of it in the sky and tried to take one through the binoculars, the film is still in my camera, I'm hoping it turns out. Once I get it developed.

Hope this helps, please let us know if you find out what it was.
