LOTS OF ACTIVITY OVER LAKE ERIE DURING FIREWORKS ON CIVIC HOLIDAY.

My wife and I were about to start a camp fire at the cottage and listen to the C2C podcast on my phone. I went outside first. While I was waiting for her I decided to take a look up at the stars to see if I notice anything as I usually do. Upon gazing for the first minute, I noticed what looked like a very bright star move slowly from right to left across the night sky. I looked for the blinking lights which would rule out anything but a plane but there were none.

I called for my wife to come out and look but she was busy with the kids at that particular moment. When she came out I told her what I saw. She dismissed it as a plane. I decided to keep looking up and about 5 minutes later, this time, TWO, bright glowing, what looked like, stars (but brighter) moving across the sky but this time from left to right and the latter one following the leader in exactly the same path it was on. If the front one moved slightly down or up, the other would follow to a tee.! The wife couldn't dismiss this one. She began to look up with me. THEN...over Lake Erie we see a glowing orange light stationary over the treeline. It slowly started moving to the left and just as it was about to go out of sight behind a tall tree on the yard, it simply vanished! Like a bathroom light, it just turned off. Now the wife is LOSING IT! As well as myself, "what did we just see" we said to each other laughing with excitement. I was giving her the "I told you so's" and decided to walk down the property towards the beach on the lake. There....again over the horizon across Lake Erie I spot a second glowing orb which looked exactly like the one that just vanished before our eyes.

The wife ran back to the cottage to grab me my phone so I could record what I saw. I did manage to get some film. I have attached what I got.

Notice in the second video that the craft moves toward the sound of the fireworks, which you, Mr. Davenport have mentioned many times on Coast.
