Shape: Light
Bright White Light over eastern Toronto.

I took my dog to the park near my home early in the morning after I got off work in the very eastern part of Toronto. The park is heavily forested where it is easy to the see the stars away from all the lights in the city. At around 3:00 AM I noticed a bright white light that slowly but surely rose up from beyond the horizon looking East. At first I thought it was a star but after looking at it carefully I noticed it moved higher in altitude but then it stopped. The light was brighter than any other star in the sky, but to the average person it can easily be mistaken for a star. I had a flashlight so I flashed it on and off 3 times toward the light in the sky. I noticed it start moving a little while after I shun the flashlight. This time I noticed it started moving toward me but still at a very slow pace, then it stopped again just hovering up there. It had to be a few thousand feet up in the air and about 10-20 Km in distance from where I was. It had no blinking lights, it also didn't make a sound. It was not a plane, helicopter, star, comet, or satellite (I used my Sat App on my phone to check), it could have been drone for all I know but the fact is it was some sort of an unidentified flying object. The light slowly eventually hovered so far high up I lost sight of it, plus there was a little cloud cover. After going through my records I realized that this exact same light appeared in the sky last year around the exact same time of the year. I captured it on film roughly in the same location, altitude, and time, it appeared 8 out of 11 nights, the last sighting being on September 2nd, 2012. I haven't seen it since until now almost a year later to the day. It also always appears from beyond the horizon around 3-4 AM and it almost always slowly hovers its way up so high that you just lose sight of it. I will go out tonight to see if I see it again.
