|Bright Orange Light - dimmed out as though it went straight up - silently.
I was more than surprised and excited to read the accounts of Aylmer residents reporting UFO sightings. These stories were the first that I had heard of anyone seeing the bright orange ball that my family witnessed on June 13th at about 945 near the Marina. My spouse and I were enroute to pick up our child from near the Marina, I noticed an orange light in the sky, but dismissed it as a plane coming across the water from Ontario. But after picking up our child and chatting with our friends for a while, and coming around the corner near the Marina there was something odd about the light – it hadn’t yet passed over – as we arrived at Front Street – it was almost overhead – I stopped the car and had to lean over the dash to see it…I asked my spouse, “do you see that?”, he said “yep”, and to our child he asked “do you see it?”, she replied “yes. Mommy, do you see it?” she asked, I replied, “I sure do”. This bright orange light just sat there not moving – and not making any sort of noise. I can safely saw that the size of the light was the size of a quarter from where we sat. We watched it for a couple of minutes until it seemed to “dim away” as though it was going straight up. I dismissed it as a high end helicopter, the Air Show was scheduled for the following weekend, and we certainly didn’t report it to anyone – who would we call in the first place? The police – what would they do about it? The Airforce? – right – our military has much better things to do with their time...but now this is interesting!
