Occurred : 2/17/2002 23:45 (Entered as : 02/17/02 23:45)
Reported: 2/27/2002 1:13:55 AM 01:13
Posted: 3/19/2002
Location: Mississauga (Canada), ON
Shape: Fireball
Duration: several minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
fireball-like objects blue, red and green seemed to form triagular pattern in the sky.

Myself and three friends late Sunday evening decided to go outside in the backyard for a cigarette when we noticed a strange sky.

It appeared to be a full or almost full moon out, but there was a strange circle around the moon.

It had a glow around the circle, I am not much of an astronomer but I believe it was a lunar eclipse, the moon was very bright and seemed to be right in the middle of the circle which had a glowing haze around it.

One of my friends had a digital camera and decided to take some pictures. That is when we noticed these small round objects in the photos.

They were different in colour, blue red and green.

She took several photos and we noticed a few of these fireball-like objects had formed a triangular pattern. We stared into the night sky at them for a few minutes.

It was late and dark and to be honest we were all a little frightened by the sighting and went inside.

I am expecting to receive the photographic evidence anyday now via e-mail and will post them a.s.a.p., I will remain anonymous until after I post the pictures at which time I will make myself available for any questioning.

((NUFORC Note: Source is anonymous to us, so we cannot request copies of the photos. The ring around the Moon is suggestive of high altitude moisture or ice crystals. The lighted objects may be "twinkling" stars, but that is a guess. PD))
