Fireball Over Ottawa!

It has taken me sometime to write about this event that took place early in the morning. My job has me seeing a lot of planes coming and going but since I work the morning shift no planes leave until 6am.

On this particular morning while working my first flight. I just happened to look in the sky to my amazement I could see a bright object travelling east. Not to sure as to what I saw I rubbed my eyes and the object was moving quite quickly. I was scared and anxious to tell my peers but wasn’t able to grab my radio. The state of shock I was in, I was just baffled as too what I was seeing. The object appeared L shaped in pattern and just seemed to be whisking along. As soon as some random garble came over my radio the object then moved higher up and fire seemed to take ahold of the front of the object and disappeared completely. It was as if the object cut a pocket into the sky and left my sights completely. The whole duration lasted 2mins.

Upon my return to my ready room I mentioned this to my supervisor, and to my surprise nothing was said in return.

Since then I look up more in the sky at that time but to no objects’. I haven’t mentioned this too many people in fear that my peers will laugh or even worse.
