Full Description of event/sighting: Me and my wife live in Calgary Alberta, but I currently work as a geological consultant near Cold Lake. Yesterday I received a call from my wife and another couple of neighbors from Calgary. This was Sunday, July 10th around 11.45 pm. They live in the Eau Claire area and were looking to the SW horizon. They described two objects at about 45 deg of elevation in that sector of the night sky. The night was clear and there were no clouds.

The first object looked like a reddish planet, since it did not show changes in brightness and it seemed rounded. They took this object for the planet Mars. I found out today that Mars was not visible at the time (it was visible by 1.30 am, towards the East, according to the sky charts).

Not very far from the first object, there was a second object, shaped like an inverted drop, or balloon-shaped. It was opaque and had two stroboscopic lights, red and blue. The object slowly moved away from the observers, loosing altitude. It was no longer visible after 20 minutes or so.

Because they were using binoculars to carefully follow the second object, the witnesses suddenly realized that the first object was no longer in the sky.

About one hour later my wife observed a small, very fast jet, moving towards the area where the second object was last seen. This plane did not have the red and green position lights turned on. She emphasized that it moved exceptionally fast with a humming sound.

I frankly don't know what to think. A balloon? Military tests?

Thank you to the witness for the really interesting report.
