|White or reflective object at high altitude displays unusual flying behavior, disappears straight up.
Wednesday September 10th I was visiting my sister at her cottage on Lake Erie, at Long Beach, Ontario.
At around 4:30 in the afternoon, as we relaxed overlooking the beach, my sister looked up and said "what is that?".
She pointed out what she saw in the mostly clear blue sky. At high altitude was a small round object.
It was so high as to be difficult to say if it had any shape other than round, or any distinguishing markings.
A high flying airliner was nearby and was below this object which in my estimation had to make the object we saw at least as large as the passenger jet. The object was moving in a strange sort of s-pattern, changing directions a number of times in a short distance. Next it seemed to go straight up, as it became suddenly smaller and then disappeared.
We observed the object for less than one minute. Neither of us had ever seen anything in the sky behave in this manner before. At first we thought it could be a balloon but if so it would have had to be some miles up and very large.
