Multicolored Lights Witnessed and Filmed Over Lake Ontario
Being in the month of January I thought to share a sighting going back January 24,2008 over Lake Ontario
While traveling along Hwy 401 eastbound in the Whitby Township, at about 7:00pm on Jan. 24, 2008 there I could see southeast a very bright multicolored light over Lake Ontario.
So curious I turned off highway 401 into Whitby and then headed off southbound on Thickson Road. I then turned east along Bloor Street into Oshawa township. I stopped at a Best Buy store parking lot to the back of building for a better view.
I got out of my car with a analog camcorder and tried to film it over Lake Ontario. Within 40 seconds, my camcorder loss battery power. I then returned to the car and retrieved my digital camera 3.8MP. I took 10 pictures and 3 short video clips
My distance from the lake was approximately two miles away.This bright multicolored light appeared to stay stationary over the lake about 2-3 miles away from the shoreline or more. Another guess from my position in total maybe 5-7 miles away. Altitude at maybe between 3-5000 feet or higher.
After about 20 minutes observing and filming this bright spectacle I then left due to low chilly temperature. So I went on travelling north into Oshawa to my home. As soon as I got out of my car at home on the driveway I noticed a very low plane with a bright light in the front fly over my house. The direction the plane was heading southeast same direction I just came from.
I have one photo and a short clip to share in photographic evidence. This one still shot illustrates the different colors associated.
I do believe this short video clip has captured something else close over the lake that the naked eye did NOT see.
Please note : After looking into my picture archives I could not find the original photo or this short video clip. Yet do have the enhancement of the original picture.
Here is a copy of the short video clip that I posted some time back on the tube
Special thanks to Serge for picture enhancement
