Full Description of event/sighting: At dusk (approx 7:50-8:00
pm) on May 15 2004, from my home in East Scarborough near Lake
Ontario, looking south towards the lake, some moving lights in
the sky caught my attention. They were confined to a fairly
small area of the sky and seemed to be at about cloud level. My
guess is the lights were moving about perhaps a few miles off
our shoreline, and would likely have been high enough and far
enough over the lake to also have been visible from the US side
of the lake. It had been an overcast day and the sky at this
time was clearing. It wasn't nearly dark enough yet to observe
any stars.

At first I saw one small pink-red light at cloud level traveling
parallel to the ground and in a straight line moving from East
to West at about the same rate as I'd expect to see planes
travel. This light flashed on and off with a regular rhythm like
an aircraft and was about the same size as an aircraft light
seen at such a distance. It seemed to have appeared out of
nowhere, then traveled west for perhaps 5 seconds and
disappeared. I thought I had seen and then lost sight of a

Suddenly from the very same place in the sky that the light
originally appeared, and only seconds after the first light
vanished, another light appeared. It was the same colour and
behaved exactly like the first light, even traveling in the very
same line. It too disappeared in the same manner as the first
light. This behavior of a light appearing, traveling for a few
seconds across the sky and then disappearing repeated 6-10
times. After a few passes the reappearing light ceased flashing
as it moved across the sky. It glowed a reddish pink colour and
without blinking as it moved.

The behaviour of the light then changed. Suddenly the light was
moving from west to east and towards the end of the sighting it
seemed that there might have been more than one light in play.
Just as one vanished another appeared. The direction of flight
changed to a sweeping arc. The flight started parallel to the
ground and then curved steeply upwards and seemed to accelerate
just before disappearing. There seemed to be a distinct
repetitive pattern to the flight of the light(s). As one light
moved from east to west, arcing at the end of its flight,
another light mirrored that pattern by flying west to east and
then arced upwards at the end. The area the lights were
"playing" in the sky drifted higher and a little to the east as
the sighting continued. It also seemed that the activity of the
lights became more intense towards the end. They appeared and
disappeared more quickly and the flight pattern became more
energetic. The best thought that comes to mind is it appeared
that they were growing increasingly excited about something as
the activity became quite hectic towards the end. The display of
these lights lasted about 5 minutes and was witnessed by a
friend with me at the time. His impression was that the lights
were chasing each other, as in a dogfight.

The flight pattern reminded me of when you see a powerful spot
light beamed in the sky circling and moving about, starting and
finishing its routine in the same place every time. These lights
were a lot like what you see when you use a red laser pointer,
except the colour of the lights in the sky were less intense red
than a laser, rather being an almost pink sort of colour. Since
the cloud cover was quite thin at this time it's unlikely that
some sort of laser was beaming around on the cloud cover (If it
was an extremely powerful laser I would have seen the lights
fade in and out as the beam struck thin patches of clouds. The
lights I saw held intensity as they flew across the sky before
vanishing suddenly.)

There was no sound accompanying this sighting and I think the
flight behavior was too radical for normal aircraft. The speed
and turns were not something I've ever seen planes capable of
doing, particularly without making sound. The regular flashing
of the lights in the beginning was aircraft-like, but the
reddish-pink colour was unusual. I got the feeling while
watching the lights that I was seeing glowing objects, something
without mass (like the spot made by a laser) rather than a solid

In such an urban area as this I can't imagine that my friend and
I were the only two people to have seen this blatant display of
something quite unusual right out in the open and in daylight.
Surely our beaches and boardwalks, which provide a perfect view
of the southern sky, were busy on Saturday after dinner and many
people could have seen this event. I've checked into all the
major local news sources, newspapers, radio and local TV news
and haven't seen a mention of this event. I hope to learn what
it was that we saw, or at least hear accounts from other

Thank you to the witness for the report.
