so i wanted to post this in the ufo forums but apparently i have to post here 20 times before i can post in other forums. dumb and im not gunna bother. i was hoping to get some insight on what i saw last night.

i live west of toronto in ontario canada and last night (sept 10 2010) about 8:50 eastern time i saw a light in the sky moving towards the south, it was a circular light with no other lights flashing on it. i thought it must be a personal plane since we have an airfield not to far away. then i realized this light is actually getting smaller and smaller until it completely disappeared. the whole sighting lasted about 10 seconds. the light moved in a straight line. im not sure what the altitude of this object was but i got the impression it was rising.

i dont think it was aliens. i remember hearing the canadian air force was going to be buying some new planes from lockheed. maybe theyre test driving some new stuff?

maybe it was a space station? what was in my airspace last night?

Sounds like a satellite or the ISS.

Put your coordinates in here and see if there are other passes you can look out for.

see something in the sky, huh?

you and hundreds of millions more. but there is enough information to come to the inevitable conclusion that reasonable doubt usually equates to: debunked.

keep looking up. but we only see a fraction of the spectrum of light.

thanks for sharing.

again, welcome to ATS. i hope you enjoy your ATS experiences. and please don't post crap,

There's really nothing to go on here other then you saw a light in the sky for ten seconds that faded away. Honestly ten seconds isn't much time to draw to a conclusion and also without video or pic for reference there's only speculation on what you thought you saw which could have been anything but a ufo.

Mr. P.

It corresponds to possible sighting of the International Space Station.

From Buffalo NY on Fri night 9/10 - you could see the ISS for 2 minutes nearly overhead travelling in the directions below - from WNW to SE. The ISS looks like a bright star travelling about 2-3 times as fast as a plane, with no blinking lights and a "fade out" at the end when it leaves visibility. I've seen it numerous times with one great viewing with my wife with the space shuttle travelling about 20-30 seconds time behind it before it docked.

DATE/TIME (MIN) (DEG) (DEG-DIR) (DEG-DIR)

ISS Fri Sep 10/08:53 PM 2 87 31 above WNW 45 above SE


WIth any viewing of anything - if it isn't flying around like crazy in all directions with stops and starts - if it is a smooth light traversing the sky it is probably a satellite or ISS (which is pretty large compared to satellites). Always check web sites for sighting opportunities first. Here's where I got yours:
