Fast Moving Bright Round Orange Light Over Whitby/Oshawa Ontario (Pictures/Video)

Date:  June 30, 2014
Time:  Approx: 10:52 p.m.

Hi Brian, on a very warm evening on June 30, 2014 at home in Oshawa, Ontario, I was at my next door neighbor’s chatting while having a beer outside on his deck. There was he and his wife along with another younger couple.

At about 10:52 p.m. I noticed high in the sky a bright orange light. I thought helicopter as I watched it north half a mile away and coming across from the west.

After maybe fifteen seconds as it drew closer to our position directly north when I realized it not being a our on-going Police helicopter that flies routine each night. It appeared totally roundish and very bright orange

The speed was very quick – 80 -100 MPH ? The attitude at least couple thousand feet. I pointed this out to the other four witnesses whom appeared shocked.

Then went into my pocket to pull out my old camera and took couple pictures along with a quick video clip

You can view the video footage on YouTube at this URL:

Total time witnessing this spectacle would be under one minute. I’d be sure others in Oshawa must have seen it ! It crossed over HWY 2 and Thornton Road heading northeast.

Please note with Canada Day happening – July 1, 2014. People were setting off fireworks that evening. I would like to say to speed and pattern of flight behavior that it did not appear to be a Chinese lantern due to these factors witnessed.

Thus understand that fireworks may attract  UFO’s into a area during or after.

Many thanks to mg for picture enhancements – including two from video clip.

  1. I live closer to the lake in Oshawa, and am here tonight still browsing for anyone else who witnessed what I saw in July 13, 2013. i saw orange lights in the sky

  2. Saw the same orange ball in the sky sat august 2 to the south of wall NJ than again sunday august 3 to the west over Allarie airport. Both times it was around 930pm. Thought it might be a planet at first which wasn't on google sky map. Last night sighting was crazy looked light a orange ball of fire (almost like a hot air balloon) than suddenly vanished.
