“Today, my family and I were coming out of the Grande theatre at Orion Gate on Steeles. We hadn't watched a movie, we were just trying to book my boy's birthday party. The parking lot was bustling with cars and people.. which put me on alert in case one of my three children decided to dart. That is the only reason perhaps why I noticed such a fast moving object above my head. I am a skeptical fellow. But I am left with questions after this incident. The lights, blue and white, are normal navigational lights and perhaps rocket exhaust. This is why I still believe what I saw is terrestrial. However, that was about the only normal thing. I have lived near the *******, England; A place where they tested low level fighter pilots at speeds exceeding sound. I have watched them go by silently and heard the boom and engine noise that follows. This object travelled directly, like a rocket, without shuddering. It effortlessly passed over my head and a distance 1-2km further east in a matter of 4 or 5 seconds. Then, as I was comprehending what would fly so low, so fast .. the lights turned off.. I could not see it anymore.. whether it changed pitch, switched off or what.. I do not know. My first thought was that it was a cruise missile.. only by the slicing ease of flight and the apparent absence of wings. I found it hard to believe that something flying so low could disappear from my view in 4-5 seconds just by switching off; Usually planes can be viewed for quite sometime on a clear day like today.. as I noted when I looked south towards Pearson... about 2km away.
Secondly, the inevitable boom was not heard. The sound my daughter and I both heard was ironically, a whirring.. a low tone rocket engine or a warbling hum. So it was not going faster than sound... which meant that in order to cover the full arc of sky that I saw it for in such a short time.. it was flying quite low. A fact that wasn't apparent when it was directly overhead but became more evident as it approached the horizon in the east. So why wasn't the engine sound louder?.. Why did we only notice it afterward?
In any case, I guess this event will remain something to ponder.. just like the gray shape hanging in the air that my wife and I watched last month... completely unconventional.”
