Reported: 4/2/1997 09:20
Posted: 2/5/2003
Location: Scarborough (Canada), ON
Shape: Triangle
Duration:30 sec.
The caller and her three daughters were outside looking at the comet with their binoculars. She looked at the Big Dipper, when she noticed an object moving "fast" across the night sky, which "entranced" the four of them.

The object had a "rounded triangular" shape to the front of it, and it had "twenty or so" solid, distinct white lights on the leading edge of it. It was larger than a clenched fist at arm's length, I.e. larger than a full moon.

As the object moved rapidly to the south, it just seemed to disappear from sight. The mother ran around the house to follow it as it moved south, but it was gone from sight before she could get there.

They watched the object with binoculars, and all four of them drew its shape.
