|I was driving southbound from Stony Mountain Institute along Hwy 7. The sky was clear, and blue at 16:05 hr. The temperature was about -18 C.
About 3 miles north of the Perimeter Hwy/Hwy 7 cloverleaf, a disc-shaped object suddenly flashed into existence through my windshield directly ahead of me about 45 degrees off the south horizon. The object I estimated was perhaps above the cloverleaf and about 3,000 ft altitude.
Strangely, the east side of the object was brightly metallic, while the west side of the object was shadowy, which was I thought odd since the sun should have enhanced the west side of the disc. I was amazed to see something flash into existence as it did, and about 5 seconds later, it flashed out of existence.
I pulled off onto a side road a few seconds later and got out of the car. I scanned the sky, but nothing was there. I listened intently for a minute, but there was no sound of air traffic. Usually, one can hear aircraft miles away in that type of weather condition. I got back into the car and continued southbound down Hwy 7 and saw no other metallic discs.
