On Thursday, August 31, 2000, at 11:00 PM, Ms. R.W. was on her fifth floor balcony in the city of London, Ontario, Canada, located approximately 132 miles (211 kilometers) southwest of Toronto, when she spotted a bright light coming towards her. "At first I thought it was an airplane coming towards me in the night sky," she reported, "As it was blinking an airborne light. But as it got closer, we noticed it was blinking red, then yellow and seemed to be moving from side to side. We watched it for quite some time, and I got out my video camera. The color does not come out very well on the camera, but it does show the pulsing of light and the movement (side to side -- R.W.) and it was taped on an old film. About a half hour into watching the object, there was another object that shot out of the bottom and what looked like a shooting star."(Editor's comment" Some kind of flying probe?) "My son has tried to convince me that it was a shiing star, but I have never seen a star move away from me over time in the direction I was facing. And I have never seen a shooting star come from a star. Looking off my fifth floor balcony, it appeared to be about 10 to 15 miles away. I watched it until 1:00 AM when I went to bed. It appeared to move against and not in the same direction as the stars around it."
