Full Description of event/sighting: It was a very cold day in February when my mother and I walked out of the Chiro's office and headed to the Giant Tiger across St-Joseph Blvd. to get a few items. It was about 6:45 p.m. at the time we entered the store. It only took us a maximum of 12 minutes in the store and so I figure it must have been around 7:00 p.m. the latest. We crossed the street again to head back home when I noticed an amber coloured oval object moving over the bank. I pointed it out to my mother who by this time was half freezing to death at the minus 30 temperature we were experiencing. She was quick to brush it off and said to we had to walk fast in order to warm up. But then, I noticed that the object was still. I told my mom to stop walking for a second to make sure my eyes weren't playing tricks on me (and to confirm that she was also seeing the same thing) Low and behold, the object was as still as could be, not making a sound. We decided to keep walking since it was too darn cold to stick around.

The object followed us. When we stopped, it would stop. When we would move forward it would move one point it had gotten a little too far ahead of us and actually reversed itself to be in sync with us. (?) We passed a pizza place and a few stores until we came to a clearing between a house and a flower shop where it was darker because the glare of the street lights was faded by the heavy darkness that lay in behind the house. As if things weren't bizarre enough already, it started a strange sequence of shape shifting. It changed from oval to round. Then split in two to make two round amber coloured shapes one staying still while the other dance with the tree. At about that time, two women came out of the house and one exclaimed to the other "Look at that!" but the other lady, disinterested, told her friend that they didn't have the time to fool around and they got in their car and left. One thing I need to mention here is that while the craft was shape shifting, my mother and I were sort of in awe of the whole much so that the minus 30 degree weather didn't seem to bother us at all. In fact, we were as warm as can be. Anyway, we decided to head home since my brother, who was only 8 or 9 at the time, was home alone and we needed to get back quickly for fear that he may get scared if left alone for too long.

We started home and the craft seemed to have disappeared ? We cut through the parking lot of a low-roofed warehouse where we saw something that I will never forget. The orange glow of the streetlight lit the side of the hugest object I have ever seen in my life. It looked like this big black (tar) mass sitting maybe 30-50 feet above the roof of this warehouse. It was so big that we couldn't see the other side of this thing. This massive triangular shape appeared to be moving very slowly ahead of us, directly over the townhouse project we lived in. Two men were on the other side of the street and saw the event...I never guessed they would have run away from it though. And at that moment, the most remarkable thing happened. The object shifted upwards to show its full form and for the first time we actually heard lights light up the entire triangle and electric blue sparks shot downward from either ends of the craft. I was amazed and terrified at the same time. It still evokes strong feelings just thinking about it.

The object seemed to have disappeared once more, only to reappear a quarter of a mile further as a reddish-blue light swishing back and forth in the night sky. We continued home which was literally across the street by that time and realized that we were warm. My brother opened the door with a very worried look on his face. "Where were you mom? You were gone for so long! Where were you?" My mother and I looked at each other and then at my brother, perplexed. My mother said: "We've only been gone about half an hour" I quickly took off my winter boots and walked to the kitchen to look at the time on the wall clock. "Mom, it's 9:30 p.m. how is that possible?"

Ever since that day, we have strived to explain the time loss but we really can't come up with anything that would make sense.

I had an appointment at the Chiro's office for 6:30 p.m. We left the office at 6:45p.m. went to the store across the street and were out by 7:00 p.m. the latest. From that particular store back to our house was only a 20 minute walk...given the fact that we stood still for a little while we'll add 20 minutes just to be sure ( actually, it only felt like 10-15 minutes altogether) So, technically we should have arrived home at 7:40 p.m.

Surely, we would have noticed if we were outside in minus 30 degree weather for a total of 2 1/2 hours. We would have had frostbite or something

Thank you to the witness for the amazing report.
