|Fast ball in the sky
I was outside at the family farm 45 minuets from Edmonton Alberta, having a cigarette; all the dogs in the county were barking away and at first I passed it off as being a large amount of coyote activity. As I was walking in from my smoke I noticed a star far brighter then the rest, but then I noticed it was moving with a in a "z" motion through the sky near Oran’s ((sic. Orion's)) belt in a north eastern direction sometimes giving the appearance of a tail, it seemed to slow down and became brighter as this happened the our dogs (who had calmed down) started barking even louder then they had been all night the horses could even be heard running around there was a little larger flash and it was gone. After all this our dogs clamed down but you could still here the other dogs most of the night. My mother and Stepfather were in the house when all this happened and aside from the dogs barking and then just stopping my family did not wittiness any of the lights.
To my knowledge there have been several sightings in the area over the past ten years or so. Some of these sightings have been recorded and seen by many people, others were by a few and far between.
