Have been told could be ball lightining, I checked definition definitely not. It was a red ball type of light, approximately 3 times flashed off. Travelling at a very high speed approximately 6 fist lenghts off horizon, quite high. It did a triangle flight pattern and proceeded to the north west of sky area, did three sort of circular small patterns and went into atmoshpere, It was a clear sky, was admiring stars for about 10 minutes prior. Today is Feb 24, 1998, and I can still remember it clearly. I was quite taken aback!!! did some calling around to planetarium and observatories and they did not take me seriously, some said could be ball lighning.

What surpised me most was how quickly it would change direction. Zooming from one end and quickly shifting flight direction. I screamed for my friends to come out of the house but time did not permitt. Their is a small single engine plane airport in area somewhere but I could not understand what flight pattern I was seeing especially as it flew up into atmosphere. It did not disappear into distance (i.e. east or west) but in altitude. Seem to originally come overhead of Kitchner to south east over to Cambridge then to Waterloo direction back to cambridge over toward Kitchner direction then in Kitchener area its 3 spins small circles like spirals and then shoots strainght out into atmoshpere (space).. I mention the towns to give you indication of how I observed it in its flight pattern
