object seen in night sky in Milton, Ontario, travelling in multiple directions.

FINALLY! That is what I said when I concluded that it was not just another piece of space debris or satellite.

I was on the balcony, doing my usual observation of the night sky, as it was a clear beautiful night. The moon was high and bright, and there were fireworks going off at multiple points in the horizon, as people were already beginning to celebrate Canada day.

During my scan of the night sky, I happened to notice what appeared to be a bright star, that I could have sworn was not there just a few seconds ago. As I observed, it gradual became bigger and brighter. It then began to lose its luminosity, as it was moving north. I was thinking it was a piece of space debris, as satellites have the same glow as they travel across the night sky, in a dead straight line, at a constant speed. It soon came clear to me that it in fact was not a piece of space debris, as the object came to a stop, and headed back south. After all these years of soar necks, and countless time spent scouring the night sky for any form of activity, other than planes and satellites, it finally happened- I was observing an unidentified flying object in space. I finally was observing a UFO! In my immediate excitement, I called my wife to come out to the balcony and see what I was seeing. By the time she came out, it was gradually fading out as it moved further south. We were both observing it until it had completely faded out of sight. I knew it was not because of any clouds, as the immediate surrounding stars were clearly visible.

About 1 to 2 minutes later, I finally saw the object travelling northbound again. It maintained its level of luminosity, and rather than travelling on a straight path, was what I can best describe as swerving erratically left to right. I followed it until it was no longer visible from my viewpoint.

I am indeed very excited to have experienced my first UFO sighting. I hope my wife and me were not the only ones to have seen it.
