Location: Ottawa (Carleton) (Canada), ON
Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
bright object seen racing sporadically in the southwest over the ottawa valley, seen from barrhaven, Ontario

This object appeared from the clouds in the direction of the southwest. I was drive west down old strandherd road when I saw the triangle shaped light appear from the clouds. It stood still then it race south across the sky before disappearing. After about 10 seconds it reappeared where it orignally emerged but then it went north. It stopped and then kept racing back and forth. I stopped thinking it was simply just a powerful light being emitted from the ground after it had been racing back and forth across 120 degree span from where I was watching it. The intensity of the light hadn't changed as it was moving either, so it couldnt have been an image being emitted from the ground because such an image would lose intensity as the light beam stretched further away from the origin. This racing back and across lasted about 10-15 seconds. I almost got in an accident watching it as i slowed down and the guy behind me nearly hit me.
