Calgary, Alberta Three Lighted Object Slithered Across The Sky

Time: 1:00 a.m.

Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Oblong

Full Description of event/sighting: At approximately 1:00 a.m. on August 1, 2005 a 3-lighted object slithered across the Calgary skyline, from west to east (I live on the west side). As it approached the downtown city lights it vanished and simultaneously a meteor appeared, following the same trajectory as the object.

I have one witness with me who saw me pointing to this object, but he couldn't see it himself. He instead followed my eyes as I was following the object and he saw the subsequent meteor. I said to him as I watched this object "look at that, there are no lights, yes, there are three lights". I said it in this way as I was seeing it and trying to digest what it was. I said "no lights" first because there were no red or white blinking lights that you would see normally see on a plane. I knew there were no wings in other words. I don't understand how he could not have seen the object, it was large enough, close enough and there were no other objects visible in the cloudless, starry sky. He was absolutely convinced I was seeing and watching and following this object with my eyes, and the meteor happening at the same time I said to him "it's vanished" was quite a coincidence. No alcohol or other substances involved.

The object was about the size of a large airplane and was caterpillar or ameba-like with three "dome" type lights beneath it that did not radiate any sort of light downward. The lights took up at least 80% of the underside of the object. There were no other lights on the side or top or around it at all.

It made no sound like a regular airplane would. And it was too late for a normal airplane to fly over my house. It moved very "smoothly" across the night skyline. It appeared completely in synch with the sky, as if it was traveling on water, whereas a regular plane cuts across the air and makes audible sound. When I said caterpillar-like it was because of the fluidity of its movement - like it wasn't a completely solid structure, it could move and bend in a way a plane never would.

Thank you to the witness for the very interesting report.
