Duration:10 seconds
I was looking west watching a commercial jet fly overhead and noticed three disc shaped objects that formed a triangle move quickly and silently north.

On April 23rd at approximately 9:30pm I was leaving My parents home after dinner and was walking out to my car. I noticed how clear the sky was as it had been cloudy, cool and rainy for quite a few days prior. Astronomy is a hobby of mine and I was facing west adimiring some of the stars when I noticed a plane approaching from the direction of Pearson International Airport. It wasn't to high up, probably a few thousand feet and I could see the wings, tail and fuslage as it flew over head. Just as it passed over I noticed three disc shaped objects that formed a triangle moving north and seemed to be lower than the plane. I could not see anything in between the discs such as a body or wings, and I began to wonder if they were in fact three separate objects moving together. They were not very bright and did not have any flashing lights nor did the brightness fluctuate but the discs themselves were well defined and not at all fuzzy or blurry. I called to my father who was at the top of the driveway but by the time he came down they had moved over the house and were getting lost in the light of a large mall directly north were they went out of site. The object/objects were larger against the sky than the plane and seemed to be lower in altitude. They made no noise whatsoever, they were silent, and moved quickly in a straight line north with no noticeable change in altitude. The siteing lasted about 10 seconds. I do not believe it was an aircraft as I could not see anything other than the discs and I could make out all of the jetliner that passed by. They did not make any sound, and it most certainly would have, had it been a plane. It was moving quite fast and must have been fairly low. If it was in fact much higher, than the speed was allot quicker than I origianally thought and the object would have been huge. The object/objects were about the size of the nail on your small finger held at arms length and about 1/2 inch apart at arms length. I am 36 years old, married and have been an ameture astronomer for 2-3 years now. I have witnessed many differtent events and objects and am more conscious of what goes on in the sky than most. This was nothing like anything I had ever seen before.
