Shape: Light
bright round object zig zaging back and forth up and down over lake ontario canada side.

I was a skeptic before i had a very strange encounter along with some people that were also skeptics before IT happened. me and four other friends 2 of them had been close with me for several years and 2 of them were aqauntances. We were all going through school at the time (college) it was two in the morning and it was very clear that evening with i think an almost full moon high in the middle of the sky. We were standind on the North shore of Lake Ontario at bluffers park in scarborough Ont. our attention had been drawn up in the sky when 1 person in the group pointed out that she had seen what looked to me to be a planet had just appeared out of thin air. it was about moon level in the sky and it was a brilliant orange round object slightly larger than the largest visible star but was much brighter than any star i have ever seen. I know there is alot of air traffic in the t.o. area but i was sure no aircraft of earth origen that can zig zag back and forth up and down at the speed It was going it seemed almost to be playing in the entire sky above us. About after 10 min we saw a airplane i know this from wacthing many planes from the exact spot for many years. As the plane approached the vicinity of IT,IT stopped. Then at a very high rate of speed traveled toward the plane. One of my good friends then screamed oh my god it is gonna hit the plane. Just before IT did it proceded to do looping zig zaging motions around the plane then just as it had been playing before ITleft the plane and continued to play some more in the sky leaving the plane alone> at this point my hair was standing on the back of my head. We watched for the next 5 min or so the orange btright rond object dissaperar and reapear i know this because we saw a refletion of the light on the water which had been very calm and reflective. The light also apeared to dive frome about moon level in the sky down into the water several times and one witness also said that she thought she saw several other very tiny lights of the same orange coluo! r circel ing around and joining the light now i have poorer vision than she i know because i am suppused to ware glasses but she does not. I just found this web site and thought i cuold share this with others that think they are alone in there sightings and who are laughed at when trying to explain what they have seen without the fear of embaresement or ridicule please will someone respond?
