Durham County ON
Dec 2005. through January 2006
"On Dec. 9 at 5:50 I was lying in my bed thinking about my day ahead when suddenly my whole room lit up. I jumped up to look out the window and saw a bright greenish oval/rectangular shape at eye level but quite a distance out. We live at the very top of a large hill and are surrounded by fields as far as the eye can see so to see a bright light coming out of the north sky was odd. It looked like it was moving south quickly but suddenly it turned to the east and was gone...light and all! Our house has loads of huge windows and no curtains because we live in a private location. There are no houses that can be seen from our hilltop unless we use binoculars.
My kids and husband suggested that I don't tell anyone because it sounded so odd and after thinking about it, I agreed and never mentioned it again until a similar experience again on Dec. 28 at 1:40 am!
We had just had friends over and don't normally stay up so late and I don't drink at all. They left around 1:20 and my husband stayed downstairs to eat leftovers while I went up to bed. I had just turned my TV on when there were 4 bright (very bright) flashes, (each one lasting about 4 seconds) that completely lit up our entire hill and house. The light was a blue green again. I decided not to call my husband and talk about it because of the first incident. I went to sleep and the next morning asked him if he had turned out the outside light before turning on the downstairs TV.
He then asked me if I had seen the flashing lights? I was thrilled because now I wasn't alone. The lights came from the east and lit up the entire house enough for him to see them from a wee little window in my office on the east side of the house, which shone though to our living room to catch his eye. My husband is a very down to earth, logical and grounded kind of a guy and he couldn't explain it either. We have lived up here for 20 years and could almost rattle off the flight patterns of all the planes from Montreal to Toronto because that's all we can see at night from our windows.
Friday night January 6, at 9:00 pm my husband was standing out on the deck because the power had gone out in our area and he saw another flash in the north east direction again! He says it was like a spot light compared to the previous flood of light. We both began to wonder if we've seen that many unusual things in just a month, how many things we have missed by sleeping through it?"
We would like to thank the witness for their report. Please note that this area of Durham has been the location of several strange events over the years. We would appreciate hearing from anyone else who may have experienced something similar particularly in this location and time frame.
