... stop rising and stayed stationary for several seconds.
Brantford, Ontario, Canada - 05-10-15
I was sitting on my front porch at about 9:00 PM enjoying the warmth of the day when I noticed two lights drifting upwards from a treeline maybe about 500 ft away.
They were fairly bright and I thought they were those memorial candle things people light up and let them float away.
I was thinking if they come down they could start a fire. I watched them float upwards at about a 15 degree angle to the left and felt that they were getting too high to be those candles.
They then seemed to stop rising and stayed stationary for several seconds.
The light on the left moved higher and eventually disappeared into the clouds while the one the right slowly "drifted" further to the left and then started moving to the right.
I continued to watch it as it just kept moving further away (to the right) and it also eventually disappeared into the clouds.
During this sighting I was wondering if maybe they were some sort of aircraft except that other than for a couple cars passing my house it really was a nice quiet evening. I heard no sounds that one could expect to hear from aircraft.
At the point that the object had stopped rising I realized I should have been trying to get some video which was when I finally grabbed my cell phone and started recording.
My camera recorded it sideways unfortunately so not sure how it will end up looking if it gets displayed on this website.
