I've just signed up to ATS because I wanted to post this somewhere and thought ATS would be the best venue (sorry, only have access to the
Introductions forum for now as a result of my 1st time posting).
Last week I was chilling out on my back patio some time between 11:30 and 12:30 at night enjoying the stars. I saw more than a couple of (what I
think were) sattelites tracking overhead during this time.
One in particular caught my eye, it rapidly crossed the sky in a straight line (much faster than any airplane would), but then from my vantage point
appeared to begin descending. It was travelling away from me directly along my line of site. The first thought that crossed my mind was maybe
the apparent descent was simply curvature of orbit (aside: is that something one could see? I practically haven't spent any of my life looking up
at the night sky).
In any event, the sighting was odd enough that I thought I'd check later if there were any UFO reports in that direction.
What happened the next day was the earthquake centred north of Ottawa. I was on my way home from work when I wondered if the epicentre was in the
direction of my sighting the night before. When I got home, I pulled up google maps and sure enough, the epicentre of the Earthquake was relative
to my home in the *exact* direction that I observed this pin point of light descending.
Then I thought to google if the were any UFO sightings, and sure enough found this:
No elaboration there on the UFO angle, but quite an amusing coincidence.
That's all.. just thought I'd throw that out there.
