Orange Globe Flew Over Burlington Ontario

Date:  August 18, 2012
Time:  Approx: 9:00 p.m.

On the 18th August 2012, Saturday, approximately 21:00 in Burlington, ON.

Night time, though not 100% dark yet, maybe 2-3% wispy cloud cover (hard to assess at night).

Saw orange globe moving from west to east in straight line, took about 1 minute to move from horizon (Niagara Escarpment) to a point approximately above Bronte (east of viewing point), then quickly (2-3 seconds) arched and changed direction to move SSE, accelerating (at least it seemed so) and quickly fading (ball grew smaller as it moved) into the distance (clouds?) within 20 seconds.

Viewed with binoculars for better look (lucky we were watching stars night before):

It seemed to be two attached spheres, upper was orange-red and faded from orange-red at base to black at surface, lower sphere smaller and lit yellow-orange.

I would have said it was an aerostatic balloon, though I am unsure. I do wonder why it would be flying so late at night crossing Pearson's west flight path (we were watching planes just a while before) and how it changed direction and speed so dramatically when it reached a point above Bronte.

If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential.

Also, please feel free to send in your sightings that have happened years ago. So many of these older sightings are nothing short of amazing.
