My first actually sighting of ufo was in Canadian National park...Algonquin Park

In the summer of 1995 I had read about weird objects being seen in the sky over Algonquin Park, I wanted to see why people were reported these things so me and my dad took a 2 week vacation up to the national park. Every night for the 2 weeks I stayed up in the early hours watching the night sky and every night was the same disappointment; all I could see was the stars and the moon and nothing out of the unordinary. Then on the last night something compelled me to walk to the edge of a river bank, I was not sure why my interest suddenly grew but I left my dad who was cooking by the fire and proceeded to the water. When I looked up I paid attention to a specific star that was just below the big dipper, suddenly it began to move in a western direction, after 10-15 seconds it stopped and went back to the east, this continued and the bursts continued at different speeds, after a few "laps" in the sky it began to make a zig zag patter "Z" after making a star pattern in the sky it stopped one last time for about 5 seconds before shooting straight up and disappearing; I walked back to where my dad was and he did not say if he did or did not see the light in the sky, since then my experience with sighting ufo's has increased…
