UFO Sighting Report - Canada

December 24th 2007 : Queen Elizabeth Driveway Ottawa, Ontario

Queen Elizabeth Driveway Ottawa, Ontario Fast Horizontal Moving Light

Date: December 24, 2007
Time: Approx: 11:00 p.m.

Location of Sighting: Queen Elizabeth Driveway.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Bright ball of light.

Full Description of event/sighting: We were returning home from a Christmas Eve celebration around 11:00 pm on a clear and dark night. We were driving north along the Queen Elizabeth drive, alongside the Rideau Canal. I looked across the canal and saw an incredibly bright light moving horizontally across the sky. The "sighting" lasted about 2 seconds. The best comparison I can give is seeing a shooting star. For those who have had the good fortune to see a shooting star, you know that it seems quite high in the sky and seems to be falling downwards with a bright tail, usually lasting only a moment. This was very different.

It appeared on the horizon, much lower than any aircraft would fly and travelled horizontally, not in a downward direction. It was intensely bright and though it was moving fast, it did seem -compared to seeing a shooting star, to last for several seconds. At first I thought "oh my God, a plane has just crashed" although there was no sound whatsoever, I also thought maybe some large meteorite may have fallen, although it was the horizontal direction of movement that was so weird. I listened to the news for a couple of days to hear other reports but did not hear anything. Whatever it was, it was very bright, very low and very fast. Anybody else in Ottawa see anything similar in late December 2007 ?

Thank you to the witness for their report.
