I was listening to Coast to Coast which prompted me to report my sighting. I was driving on Hwy 35 just outside of Lindsay, Ontario when I spotted the object about 45 degrees from the horizon in the eastern sky at very close range. It was about the size of a blimp, just a little smaller and a little thinner. It was metallic grey and there were no windows. I would have never noticed it except there was lightning that went from the ground up which caught my eye. Then there was another burst of lightning, again from the ground up when I saw that it was going towards this object. It was a grey cloudy drizzling day and the object was halfway hidden by a cloud. This was strange because clouds thick enough to hide an object at so close a range could not do so. It was as if the object was deliberately hiding from view behind a cloud that could not be there. What was even more strange was I felt my mind go sort of foggy and I was having difficulty hanging on to the image and the memory only second after I saw it. A friend told me afterwards that other UFO sightings had been reported in Peterborough (a near by town) that same afternoon.
