Location: Waterloo (Canada), ON
Shape: Light
Duration:1.5 min
Very bright white star-like light, at first stationary, then moved southward and disappeared over Waterloo Ontario.

The night was a fairly calm and very ckear night. I was outside in my back patio with my son who is in excellent health and 18 yrs of age. I am 56 yrs of age and slightly near sighted.

I noticed a very bright star at the base of the big dipper and was trying to place it in the sky from my novice astronomy knowledge. At first is was stationary like a star then began to move southward. Just as I said there should be nothing there it began to move over head to the south. I said to my son we should hear engine signature soon but none was heard. He commented that there are no navigation lights on it and I said that's impossible. I thought an aircraft was on apprach with landing lights but it was not headed east to Toronto or to WaterlooWellington Airports but to Hamilton which is at least 100 kms away. Then I new it was an UFO since there was no deflection or change in brightness as if it was bright all around it. There was no air traffic that we could tel! l and I ran to get my binoculars while my son spotted for me. When I came back outside, he said it had just disappeared. He said it diminished in size rapidly and it was as if the very bright white light that had been emmitting from it grew very small and disappeared. We both surmized that it accelerated at high speeed to space. The light was quite clear, extremely bright and pure white in colour. Its intensity did not pulse nor did it blink, just a consistent magnitude and colour. As soon as it disappeared there was air traffic moving from west to east at approximately FL7, 7,000 feet and descending to Toronto. We saw at least one aircraft flying the opposite direction, east to west, also. So, at least 4 aircraft in all as soon as the UFO disappeared.
