Hamilton, Ontario Bright Object Witnessed

Date: February 24, 2006
Time: Between 6:00 - 6:40 a.m.

Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Round.

Full Description of event/sighting: I am writing as possible confirmation of the sighting report from Hamilton on the same day. I live in the north end of Hamilton (between Dundas & Ancaster sort of down in the valley). I was up early, the sky was starting to brighten (sunrise is about 6:45 am), looking out my apartment window to the south, above the Hwy 403 escarpment I saw an extremely bright light. I usually get up for work around that time but I wasn't going to work that morning (I've had the flu).

My first thought was must be Venus. It appeared stationery but kind of pulsing and shimmering. The extreme brightness of the object made it stand out as very unusual. It seemed larger, brighter and somehow closer than a star (or planet) should be. I could see no other stars anywhere in the sky due to the increasing brightness of the coming sunrise. so that sort of confirmed for me that it was probably Venus (the morning star).

I was tempted to continue watching to see if it would disappear too, like the stars had already as the sky continued to brighten but eventually I returned to bed. I didn't see it move or go out, but I look out that window most mornings and have not seen anything similar before or since (although the last two days have been cloudy). I would probably not have written you except for the other report.

Thank you to the witness for the very important report.
