My older sister and I were playing on our second floor veranda.Our house is situated at Lansdowne Avenue, just north of Bloor street West in Toronto. Our Veranda faces west and affords us a not so lovely view of a very large factory.
It was about 5pm and my sister(age 9) pointed out to me (age 6) a strange object in the sky west of us. I don't know what made her first take notice of it. It was perfectly still in the sky, not moving at all. It was longer in width than height, about a 3:1 ratio. It was oval/egg shaped but more like an egg that had been somewhat flattened. It was definitely metallic because I remember the sun was glistening off of it's surface. After about 20 or 30 seconds, it seemed to stretch out slowly and get longer. My sister and I didn't make a peep to each other. It was the strangest thing. We were both focused like laser beams on the darned thing. I sometimes wonder if it just seemed to get longer because it was getting closer to us, but I can';t be sure. It then started moving very slowly in a northerly direction. After about another 20 or 30 seconds it shot straight up and away from us in a North west direction. It was in the blink of an eye, shocked the living hell out of us. It's like it just shot straight up into space. I don't know why, but I felt an amazing sigh of relief when it was gone.
We told our Mom what we saw and she got angry and told us to get inside the house and never mention to anyone what we saw.
It was years later that my Mom told us that she used to see strange things in the sky when she was growing up in the Azores. In her time, people who mentioned such things would sometimes go missing, so no one dared to speak of such sightings. My experience pales to some of my mothers sightings. I am still trying to convince her to jot them down on the net.
Our thanks to the witness
