Reported: 7/28/1998 15:44
Posted: 2/5/2003
Location: St. Catharines (Canada), ON
Shape: Formation
Duration:17 seconds
Four round lights traveling in a diamond formation traveling at a very high rate of speed. All four lights appeared attached to a smaller red light. Approximately 10 seconds into the sighting, the tailing light broke formation and crossed the pattern and the then trailing light moved forward to the position vacated at that time. This formation then became a square. The formation then traveled out of sight over the horizon. The formation was traveling in a East to West direction making no noise what so ever.

At approximately 1:30 in the morning of July 1, 1998, while on vacation at my father's house in St. Cathrines, Ontario Canada, a friend and I were sitting on my father's porch. As I was looking into the sky I wittnessed a formation of 4 lights traveling through the night sky in an East to West direction. Each white light was attached to a smaller red light about 1/3 the size of the white light. There was absolutly no noise. The duration of the sighting lasted approximately 17 seconds. The formation was originally traveling in a diamond shape. After approximately 10 seconds the formation changed to a square when the tailing light moved to front left of the formation and the then tailing light moved to the right tailing left of the formation. The formation was traveling at an extremly high rate of speed. Faster than any known aircraft that I have ever wittnessed. At the time there was another aircraft in the air, that was appearantly making its approch to the local airport in a southly direction.
