3 amber lights

May 30th 2005, about 4:00am eastern time I was standing at my window as I had been doing for several nights: reading material on physics and chemistry from my school texts and those I had printed from Wikipedia. The lights were out and I was using 2 candles to light the pages: It’s a long story. My window is on the 9th floor facing East ward, overlooking downtown Toronto from the West.

I took a cigarette out of the package beside me on the window sill, pickup up the lighter and looked up and directly out of the window. At that moment I was struck with the fact that there were 2 objects in the sky which I had never seen before (and trust me, I look out this window several times per day and night). The only words I could use to describe the situation at the time were of a questionable nature.

The 2 objects were holding position in formation. One was slightly higher than the other and only a nudge off to the left. They were bright amber in color and luminescent. At first they looked like gigantic stars. It soon became clear when, after sitting still for approximately 4 seconds, both of them darted off to the right with incredible speed and acceleration. Without slowing down or accelerating, they immediately stopped and went in the opposite direction as they were joined by a 3rd from across the lake. All 3 objects maintained a delta formation that was rotating slightly as they flew at the speed of mach 30 off to the North and out of sight. The entire sighting lasted approximately 12-15 seconds, in which time they covered a distance of no less than 85km.

The objects were luminescent spheres, travelling at mach 30 or beyond, in perfect delta and parallel formations. They were within the atmosphere, not higher than 1km above ground level. They switched directions and appeared to have the ability to accelerate and decelerate almost instantaneously.

I’ve run through the list of all possible explanations and this incident seems to defy every explanation.
