Duration:10-15 seconds
It was approximately 12:45 am (00:45) in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, when I heard a faint whirring sound coming from outside. I was sitting in my living room, inside my apartment, watching TV. I turned my head to look out the screen door of my balcony, thinking it might be someone flying a toy helicopter (because I was not expecting what I saw), and instead see a green light just sitting there, about the same brightness of a star, but bigger than the typical one observed in the sky at night. As it just sat there still, the whirring noise had stopped.

About five seconds had passed, when I then said out loud to my mother, who was sitting next to me, “What is that?” I watched it for about another five seconds, and as I stood up to get a closer look, the light started to move again. As it moved, I got a clearer look at if the light was coming off of anything – it was coming off of a grey disc/saucer shaped object. The object made a slight turn, almost like a U-turn, and then ascended up higher into the sky and came towards my apartment building, flying up and away above it. The whole time it was moving, the whirring sound occurred.

I went outside onto my balcony and looked around but I could no longer see it. My mother had not seen anything but she believed me when I told her what I saw. I only observed one saucer but it was moving much faster and stranger than an airplane or helicopter would. I am not sure if anyone else observed this, whether from their balconies or the street below. I am almost positive that what I saw was a UFO.

About 5 minutes after the sighting, my cat started acting extremely weird. She started running around the apartment, jumping and sliding on our rug. I don’t know if UFO’s have the tendency to affect animal behaviour, but I found it extremely weird for her to starting acting like this all of a sudden.

As for my background, I am a female born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, having recently moved to Hamilton. I am Caucasian.
