Amazing that this happened to me! As I went outside I heard a cat crying out in pain. Long story short, i found a stay cat that was reall just skin an bones.... it ate 5 cans of cat food... :\ But as I was feeding this poor kitty, I saw a bright white light off in the distance. I would say it was SOUTH WEST of true north.
This is not the first UFO I have seen in these parts. Last time I saw a UFO WEST of my location.
I live OUTSIDE of Edmonton, Alberta.
I am near 2 SMALL air ports. So I see alot of planes. I even remeber once I saw a black unmarked helecopter as a child that flew no more than 10-20 feet over out house... I never thought about the importance of that incedent till recently. See as how thoes unmarked helecopters have been reported many times when it came to UFOs and even more CATTLE mutalations. Altought as far as I know I personly have not heard of cattle mutalations in my area.
Anyways, as I was feeding this poor cat, I saw a bright light off in the distance. Off in the direction of SHERWOOD PARK. It is a town outside of Edmonton. I wanted to eyeball this light as long as I could, but trying to keep attention to the poor sick cat and the fact that small trees where in my way. I did not stay entirely focused to it.
I would say about a minute or 2 after I saw the bright light, it just vanished.
I would say it was VERY far away, but it could not of been a star consider how low it was to the horizen.
This time of year up here it gets dark quite quickly, and I can honestly say I have never seen a star that was that bright at this time, or even moved around for that matter.
This bright object moved around a tiny bit within the 1 to 2 minutes I watched it. It did not move in random patterns... But I would say it moved UP... not UP UP like into space or the atomsphere, but UP....
It was a LARGE distance away, but no plane or anything of that nature could produce such a bright light from that far away.
I really wanted to get my binoculars, so I could view the object, but being only human, I could only help the poor starving cat. I lost site of the object, (from my view from beyond the trees) quite quit.
All the trees around here have lost thier leaves, but I still was not wearing my glasses. But for a bright object to dissapear like that within the time period and direction it was moving and the fact there was no red or blue lights, which rules out any airplane, just leaves me boggled.
I lived on farm land, and from whats I have noticed on this web site is that sometimes "Advertizing lights" can be a factor in a UFO report. But let me tell you this, never have I heard or seen or even considered the fact that advertising lightings will be within or around the area of Edmonton, Alberta.
OH, and if your wondering, the stray cat is at a SAFE shelter now. :) By now he will of been adopted.
If I had to estimate the distance of the object I would say......
From my current location, I would say I was still a large distance away...
Even if I got over to the closest highway, I would still say I was still 1/6 distance away from it.
It was far... but very bright.
FYI: I also saw this object, while an Meteor shower was occouring, and I can tell you that this was no Meteor.
