Sir, I am writing to you today because I found on the Coast To Coast AM site, a photo titled “white light in the sky”. The photo was submitted by a gentleman from Thunder Bay Ontario. As far as when the photo was actually taken, I don’t know as there are few details accompanying the shot. What I do know is that what that gentleman photographed is nearly identical to what we witnessed and photographed while on a fishing trip the evening of July 15, 2010 at Willard Lake Ontario approximately 300 km North East of Thunder Bay Ontario as the crow flies.
The time was approximately 8:30pm and my wife and 13 year old son and I were traveling in our boat in a southwesterly direction parallel to the shoreline some 250 to 300 meters from the shore. The sun was sinking in the west and the sky was still very well lit, however the trees along the west shore of the lake were shrouded in shadow. The wind at the time was light out of the west providing some choppiness on the lake which unfortunately dramatically affected the quality of the photo we shot.
The object appeared to be high over the shoreline and moving very slowly as we used landmarks to track it as it moved above the trees parallel to our path. We stopped the boat and snapped 3 pictures and watched it for 2-3 minutes as it slowly moved along a southeasterly path. During this time we noticed that the object was backlit by the sun and stood out clearly against the sky.
The object appeared to shine brilliantly from the reflected rays of the sun and it did not appear to be emitting any light of its own. The disk shaped object appeared to be fairly large and looked as though it was made of a highly polished metallic material and from our vantage point had no discernable features other than it looked like a perfectly round, brilliantly reflective disc set on its side.
We continued to watch it move slowly as we started to motor along in our boat and continued to keep an eye on it for another 5 minutes when it just blinked out like a light bulb being switched off. Thanks for your attention. Feel free to contact me if you have additional questions.
