Location: Durrell/Twillinagte (Canada), NF
Shape: Cone
Cone/triangular object hovering low in the sky with blinking red/green/yellow/white lights. Made a loud noise.

It was around 10:45 pm last night and I was in bed talking on the phone. The person I was talking to and I heard the same loud noise fly over us at the same time. It sounded like a plane was about to crash. The person lives about 5 km away and he still heard it. I got up and ran out to the window and just up over the houses above a hill was a sort of cone or triangular shape object (I couldn't really tell because it was dark, this was the shape I saw in lights). The lights were red,White/yellow,and green. They were blinking and the object was quite large. It hovered for about 2-3 minutes and zoomed off quickly. It looked as if it were spinning so fast the colors of the lights combined. It vanished over the hills shortly after. There were several people who saw it: Mayself, My brother, a guy from school, my father and the person I was talking to on the phone could hear it. I'm sure there were others as well but it only happened last night and I haven't been talking to many people who are possibly witnesses. There aren't any military bases or airports in the area. I have saw planes and helicopters in the night's sky before but there is nothing to explain the sight I saw last night.
