Large Bright Shimmering Yellow/Amber Light Seen At Lake Kashigawigamog Haliburton Ontario

Date: October 2, 2010
Time: 5:45 p.m.

Number of witnesses: 2
Number of Objects: 1
Shape of Objects: Shimmering light.

Full Description of Event/Sighting: Just before dusk on October 2, 2010, my husband and I from our cottage on the north shore of Lake Kashagawigamog noticed a large bright shimmering yellow/amber light just above the south west horizon of Lake Kashigawigamog above a high promontory and across the lake from Puffer's Island.

At first we thought it was a helicopter, because the light hovered motionless in the sky for about five minutes after we spotted it. The light shimmered like objects on the hot tarmac in the summertime and the colour shifted from yellow to golden to amber and back again randomly. It was slightly overcast, but the horizon was clear of clouds.

As we stood outside and watched there was no sound at all, which we found very unusual as sound carries quite well over the water. After at least three minutes the light slowly moved straight up and into the cloud bank. We watched for it to re-emerge from the cloud bank, (which if it had been a plane or helicopter it would have) but there was no sign of it anywhere and absolute silence.
