I live in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada--Tonight my friend and I saw a strange flying object in the air around 10:40 p.m Thursday July 19.It looked like a large circle or oval with green and bright lights -it actually looked like an artist's depiction of a flying saucer -- it was flying low and toward the ground west of Parkill Rd and Wallace Drive in Peterborough. It was not shaped like an airplane, helicopter or jet. It might have been a mile or a mile and a half or two miles west from that intersection but was readily visible in the sky. It was totally encircled by bright green and maybe white or lights not like an airplane.Just wondering what it might have been-- a military test or whatever. It was really strange and I have never seen anything like this before in my life. My friend was driving with me and she also saw the object. It disappeared very quickly and was traveling at a great speed. It seemed not to be a shooting star or meteor. It probably disappeared from sight in about 15 seconds. It did not burn out but actually moved across the sky and then was hidden by the trees.
