Orange Light Over Garson Ontario
Time: Approx: 9:30 p.m.
Hi, I was doing some research to see if anybody witnessed the same thing I did tonight, Saturday October 9th 2010. I looked out my window and out of the blue noticed a bright orange light in the sky. At first I thought it was a star that I hadn't noticed at first, but it was a far bigger than any star I had seen (including what seem to me to be getting bigger quickly) it was moving.
The orange light seemed fairly bright, but before I could get a chance to really look at it, it appeared to disappear or at least move quickly out of my line of sight. I ran downstairs, put on some shoes and ran outside. Upon going outside there was absolutely nothing in the sky. The sky was clear and all the stars were easily viewed in the night sky.
The outside light went on so I decided to go to the backyard and see if I could see anything, but figured it was a meteor that quickly disappeared. Then just over my house the light reappeared but seem to be further away, and flickering, before becoming a bright orange light again, then disappearing. I ran towards the side of the house thinking the tree or something just hid the light.
But as I got to the side/front of the house, the light appeared again out of nowhere and very quickly moved across the sky. The bright, flickering, disappearing, and reappearing orange light was moving from the west to east in the sky at times very quickly and other times very slowly. It was not a helicopter, as I hear the helicopters flying by all the time and this was not making a noise.
Also, I checked the Greater Sudbury Airport, which is situated northeast of my house, and the only arrival listed on their website was an Air Canada flight from Toronto due to arrive at 10:55pm. This sighting took place at approx. 9:30pm.
The only other explanation would be that this was a meteor, but I highly doubt a meteor would move slowly, then quickly, disappear, reappear and finally jet quickly across the sky before disappearing again. According to my research somebody else has been witnessing an orange light over Garson during the month of July. Did I witness the same light 3 months later? Keep me posted please. I hope you do not mind my anonymity. If you have any questions feel free to email me back.
