Peterborough, Ontario Dull Yellow Orange Light Changes Direction

Date: March 30, 2005
Time: 10:45 p.m.

Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Dull yellow orange light.

Full Description of event/sighting: Viewing sky from hot tub. Clear night with a bit of haze in atmosphere. Stars were visible with orange tint and as we looked up a fast moving light crossed the sky from a south to north path. At first I thought it was just a satellite. Then we realized that it was moving about 2 to 3 times faster than what the satellites travel. I stated to my wife that that was moving fast for a satellite, or airplane for that matter, as we could also witness some airplanes in the sky. Suddenly, the object changed direction, traveling in a very tight turn about 170 degrees, then stopping very briefly. After a second , it resumed its original northerly track for a few seconds, slowed to almost still, then, continued out of sight beyond the horizon. I cannot understand what object could possibly change direction in space or the upper atmosphere so abruptly. It was like there was no inertia to smooth out the turns, or how could it just stop and start traveling like that?

Thank you to the witness for their report.
