What alien entity appeared on 12 July 2013 at about 9:45 PM over Hamilton, Ontario that was reported to MUFON?
I live in a marina. We were out on the terrace enjoying the evening coolness. It was mostly clear sky with some clouds. There was a quarter-moon in the west.
My wife was facing south, looking out into the harbor. I was facing her and looking into the harbor. All of a sudden she shrieked my name and said look up. Thankfully she pointed directly up but slightly left.
I looked up over my left shoulder into the sky above. And I saw it as it flew over our roof and flew across the harbor and across Lake Ontario. It was a huge oval, very brightly lit white light.
For want of a better description, the light pattern within the oval looked snowflake like. It was travelling at a great rate of speed; hard to judge, but I would say faster than our fastest jet.
As it crossed the lake towards the city of Toronto it just vanished. We were stupefied at first. Then we looked out at the other terraces.
We only saw two other couples having dinner, but from their angle and the fact they were in strong conversation it was obvious they missed it. Several of the boats were occupied, but again people were drinking and conversing and looking down.
I saw no sign of commotion. So I had to assume we were the only ones who witnessed the event. This was unsettling because other people would have added to confirm what we saw.
My wife and I quickly went over the facts and we both were in total agreement with what we saw, in terms of height, angle, size, color of lights, and rate of speed.
We stood out on the terrace for the next half an hour. We stared out at the lights of Toronto, which is about 25 miles away as the crow flies.
There was a cloudy skyline. Twice we saw a huge, oval light pop up and seem to hover and pulsate. It was a mixture of color in terms of light; white and orange. It seemed way too large to be a plane going to, or coming from the city airport.
I could observe a few planes in the sky during this time in and around Toronto and they were small pinpoint white lights that you usually associate with a passenger jet. What the two appearances were I cannot speculate. They appeared for ten seconds and disappeared.
Perhaps my eyes were playing tricks on me. But the original sighting of the huge oval is definitive to me. I know that was something I was seeing as it was, and that it was something I have never seen before.
All I can say about the appearance of the two quick hovering light events over Toronto within 15 minutes of the incident is that we sit on our terrace all the time at night and look out at Toronto and Iíve never seen those two light events before.
So it seems attached to the flying object that I did clearly see. Thank you for taking my report.
