No, the witness was not imagining things. The motions of the
objects he describes and his comments that "like they were
playing with one another" and "they seemed to wobble and
shimmer" and even their "orange pinkish" colours agrees very
closely with what would expect of high flying birds seen in the
light of dawn.

This can be easily verified if the witness sets out again on the
next morning with clear skies, especially after it rained/snowed
that night or on the previous day (like it did in Brampton)
which attracts lots of seagulls. Birds flying in and around
Pearson International Airport are such a big problem and a
hazard to aircraft that the airport authorities use other birds
- falcons - to scare away the seagulls and even migratory birds
now flying back north.

>They were flying at approximately 7 to 10,000 feet and
>accelerated more than the speed of a visible satellite seen on a
>clear night.

Unless the witness knows the size of these objects or what they
were, it is impossible to determine their distance. Since the
distance cannot be certain, then their speeds would also be
impossible to deduce. Was the witness really suggesting that
these objects were moving faster that about 5 miles per second,
the orbital velocity of Earth satellites? At his estimated
height of about 10,000 feet, these objects would have been out
of sight in a jiffy!

Have the witness arrange for others in his neighbourhood, all
with compasses, to step out and observe similar such objects in
the future while in contact with each other by phone. Once the
direction and elevation of the same object is accurately noted
by two or more witnesses, then through triangulation, the
distance and even the size of the objects can then be accurately
made, otherwise such estimates by single witnesses are totally
meaningless and only lead to erroneous conclusions.

I want to thank Brian and the witness (the same person that
phoned 'Strange Days... Indeed' on Saturday night to tell
Errol?) for sharing this interesting UFO sighting report with
us.
