Location: St. Catharines (Canada), ON
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 3 Min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object, The object changed color
Low flying sphere of light?

A sphere shaped object was traveling southward coming from the vicinity of Toronto at an estimated altitude of 50-100Km. This was not an airplane, there were no wing, or tail lights. The object was traveling at a slow rate of speed(200-300Kph)for about 2 minutes changing from gold/orange to white/blue.

The object proceeded to the east on a short, steady(from north to east it made a subtle 90 degree turn)arc for approximately 1 minute on a wavering trajectory, light changed to red, then flickered, and looked as though it had dematerialized, ending the sighting. All the while there was NO SOUND coming from this object.

My wife was also a witness to this event. I have seen this happen twice at night and once during the day over the last 2 months. I have seen many satellites in the past, most of the satellites I see are traveling in a straight line in the sky, this object was very different in the way that it traveled, and was much much brighter then most satellites. The object was much larger then most satellites, and it had a magnitude twice, maybe even three times the luminosity of Jupiter.

If anybody has any information on what this could be it would definitely be appreciated. Peace to all!
