Burlington Ontario September (15th?) 1970

"In 1970, when I was 10 years old, I lived in the new Centennial Heights suburb of Burlington. My two friends and I were lying on the side mound of the Andrews' yard, off Centennial Drive, facing north looking at the stars above, hoping to catch a glimpse of a supernova; we had just learned of 'starbirths' that day in school.

Suddenly, one friend said "Holy cow, look at that!'I looked and saw nothing overhead, but when I lowered my sight, saw a fiery looking globe, the size of a cube-van slowly descending over a neighbours house across the street.

After 10 seconds or so, I got up and walked over to the curb in front of the house, never taking my eyes off the object. It descended from a height of about 35 meters to about 15 meters above the house, seemingly slightly compacting it's size and clearly lighting the rooftop shingles as it got closer. About 7 meters from the rooftop it suddenly 'vanished'.

It was a clear, but dark moonless night, and the three of us scanned the sky's for evidence of the object. About 2-3 minutes later, we suddenly observed another similar object slowly descending upon the small forest, directly westward across Guelph Line, where Centennial Drive begins.

We started to run down the street towards it, and about halfway there it suddenly vanished, just above the treetops.We continued to scan the skies for another 20 minutes or so, but did not see anything unusual before we were called in for the night.

We never saw anything like it again in the nights afterward, and like kids do, moved on to other subjects and activities.  I suspect that when the first object 'vanished', it turned it's light source off, rather than disappeared, and moved away while my eyes as well as my friends' eyes recovered from the bright light given off by the object,(like looking away from a campfire, you can't see the perimeter for a short while).  I have since seen comets, meteors and satellites, and these objects were nothing like them. Too big for balloons, and the slight wind did not effect the descent patterns, which were straight down.The internet's ufo galleries has since (yesterday) shown me similar photos of what I saw that night. I have always believed in ufos since this incident occurred."
