Saskatoon SK (Southwest of Saskatoon)

Date:  March 21, 2004
Time:  8:34 p.m. CST

Shape of objects: unknown (bright flash of light)
Full Description of event/sighting:

I'm not sure whether this classifies as a UFO or not, but I'd
like to send in a short report on the chance that others saw
this and report it, too.

I happened to be looking out our living room window just after
8:30 this evening, when I saw a brilliant flash of blue-white
light. My view was to the southwest, and the entire southwestern
sky lit up. A good portion of the sky was lit up, well above the
horizon. The houses and trees across the street were
silhouetted. I've often watched summer thunderstorms approach
our city at night, and tonight's flash was easily many times
brighter than any lightning flash I've seen. I took a closer
look outside and could clearly see stars and the last of the
twilight from sunset an hour and 10 minutes earlier. There was
not a cloud in the sky, although infrared satellite imagery
currently (10:30 p.m.) shows light cloud. I checked my watch
after scanning the sky for about a minute and saw that the time
was just approaching 8:35.

About 10 minutes after the event, I saw a neighbor walking along
the sidewalk in front of our house. He seemed to be gazing at
the sky toward the southwest, but he disappeared down the street
before I could go and talk to him.

There is a cellular telephone tower and a hydro substation, both
about 3 km away, in the general direction that I saw the flash.
I have seen nothing on this evening's news to indicate that they
were involved in any mishap. There is nothing on the Environment
Canada web site to indicate a lightning strike. Perhaps it was a
meteor. I once saw a meteor create a brilliant flash in daylight
when I was a child, and tonight's event was somewhat similar.
Whatever it was, it was really bright.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
