Posted: 2/5/2003
Location: Hamilton (Canada), ON
Shape: Formation
Duration:6 - 8 seconds
I was sitting in my hot tub looking up into an unusually clear night (nights this clear are rare in Hamilton during the summer due to high smog levels), and I noticed directly overhead, at least three times, faint light moving across the sky. At first I thought it was light from the type of searchlight that bars or clubs may occaisionally use, and I kept watching for it to come around again, but it did not. Maybe two minutes after this, a triangular formation of three lights came into view, travelling incredibly fast from NNW to SSE. It was probably only about six seconds from the time they came into view from over the roof of my North-side neighbour's garage until they passed out of view behind the roof of my South-side neighbours house. I would estimate this to offer me a view of sixty to seventy percent of the sky along the flight path. I did not see any metallic type of craft, only three distinct, equally bright lights that were a dull yellow colour, and not sharp, but rather fuzzy, as if slightly out of focus.(Perhaps I should mention that I was only drinking bottled water). Each light was, I would guess, to be about the size of a dime if I were holding it at arm's length, spaced about triple that length apart, with the two trailing lights about sixty degrees off from the leading light. It passed over without making any discernible sound at all.
