December 28th 2003
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.
