On July 10, 2019, I was leaving work and waiting for a cab, when I noticed a bright white ball of light in the sky about 9:45pm. There was a major thunderstorm earlier so the clouds in the sky were dark and layered. The light never moved. It was not dark enough yet to be a star and to low to be the space station. I took out my phone and took 2 quick pictures in about a second. I then looked up and it was gone. A guy came out of the pub and I was telling him about what I had seen then I was pointing to where it was and then seen it again just over the top of the trees closer towards me, so I went to take another picture and it disappeared in front of me as if someone had turned a light switch off.

Then my cab came. When I got home I was telling my roommate about it so I wanted to show the pictures so the first one which was actually the second one there was nothing there so I just figured I didn't catch it. But a couple days later I was looking at the picture bu! t decided to look at the second one which was the first one and there it was after I zoomed in but it wasn't a ball of light it was a cylinder shape at an angle, so I zoomed in more and I can make out 3 distinct bluish lights. I took both those pictures within a second so that's how quick it was there and gone.

I still have the pictures on my phone. I had forgotten about it till tonight and when I read the post tonight from the Medicine Hat report it sounded exactly like what I had seen. So the medicine hat sighting was 7 mins before my sighting. I don't know how to include the picture but it is available
