So I just went out for a smoke, 2:40pm Simcoe county, central Ontario.
sky: blue, no overcast, but some "puffy" clouds.
I saw what at first appeared to be a small airplane, 2-4 seater, I say this because it was moving too fast to be high altitude commercial aircraft
(747style). I'm always watching the sky and see airplanes all the time (this is my reference point).
It was traveling North north/west.
Upon further observation of the object I noticed that the silhouette did not represent a small engine plane, it was a smooth oval shape. shimmering
grey in appearance (due to light reflection I'm sure)
The second observation that makes me think this was not normal was the fact that it went behind a small "puffy" cloud, and did not appear
afterwards. (went behind the cloud, but did not come out the other side)
At the speed it was moving, I was amazed that went behind the clouds, it should have gone in front. I say this because things always appear to be
moving faster the closer they are to you. but this thing was genuinely moving FAST for the altitude it would have to be at.
As for pictures and videos, I don't have any. The observation lasted, best guess, 15 seconds.
My cell phone was downstairs charging, so don't ask me why I didn't snap a pic with it.
If it came out the other side of the small cloud I probably would have shrugged it off as an optical illusion of an airplane, but I stood there
scratching my head for a couple mins searching the skies in a very confused manner.
So, thats my sighting.
What do you think? hiding in the clouds? or maybe zoomed off while behind the cloud?
keep in mind that I am ALWAYS watching the skies, and have become pretty good at identifying aircraft, satellites, etc...This was out of the norm.
