UFO Sighting Report - Canada

April 2008 : Etobicoke, Ontario

Etobicoke, Ontario A Shining Orange Ball

Date: April 2008
Time: Evening.

Hello there, my name is (name removed), 23, and I live in Etobicoke, Ontario. I live on the tenth floor of an apartment building and our windows all face north west. In the distance, I can see Pearson Airport (Toronto). The planes taking off, landing, even helicopters all day long and every day. It never lest up. We can see them from very far away, nonetheless I know what a plane looks like :P

Over the past, say 4 weeks I have noticed at night that there is a shining orange-ish ball, like a bright star or meteor that seems to appear in the sky north the airport (it's probably way out there, but this is what I can see). For a couple weeks I put it out of my head, like it was a bright star, or a satellite, or something. But now that it has appeared in the same area week after week for at least 4 weeks now, starting around the beginning of April 2008. Tonight is the first time that I have actually gotten out of bed, to try to examine it closer with my telescope and I have to admit it has driven me to do some research on the internet and of course, I ended up reading your site. It appears to me, as best I can seem to focus with the telescope as a burning ball of some sort. Seems to flicker colors, usually staying mostly red and orange, some green though.

Any information, or links to possible sources would be great. I just felt that after having seen this phenomenon more than a handful of times, that I had to mention it to someone and not many people are very interested when you ask weird questions, specially ones about space.

Thank you for taking the time to consider my message. I hope to hear back from you soon.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
