Object Stops And Continues Traveling Over Parkland Region Manitoba Canada
Time: 10:30 p.m.
Conditions - Clear sky with partial moon.
I just got back form the lake last night (Monday) at 11:00pm and have decided this morning to report what what I saw at the lake a couple nights ago. I was at my lake for the long-weekend, doing work around the property and such. Having had clouds and rain through most of the weekend, I was happy to see the stars shining bright on Sunday night.
I was standing by a large fire that I had going at the pit out front of the cabin and admiring the sky, as I love to do while there. I noticed a couple satellites pass as I was keeping track of the night sky and looking after the fire.
It was around 10:30 PM that I started to wonder when I was going to see something "abnormal" again. It was just then that I looked up above and noticed something moving.
I saw a glowing object that was very high up. At first, I thought was a satellite moving from north towards south. I very quickly realized that it was not a satellite. It stopped suddenly and sat there in the sky. It didn't move for around 2 seconds then it moved a short distance again, for around 4 seconds until it stopped once again.
It sat for a couple more seconds and the continued to move again. I watched it keep repeating as it kept moving in a south direction. It finally faded in the night sky to the south, simply because it was now so far away.
I have seen satellites all my life, and I know the sky with it's normal movements. I know this is not a satellite. It was about ten seconds after I lost site of the object, that I was looking right above me once again at the night sky.
Suddenly "exactly" where I was looking at appeared a very fast object. It too was very high. It's speed could easily be compared to a meteorite flashing across the sky. It all happened very quickly, but having been looking at the exact location in the sky I was able to at least get a clear, but very brief look at the object.
It was glowing a very bright white, but not as intense as a meteorite or "shooting star" normally appear as.
As it shot across the sky from the north toward the south, I could see that the object appeared rounded at the front and the entire body of the object appeared almost tear drop like. There was no trail to it as there is in so many burn ups in the atmosphere.
I was left thinking hard on it and wasn't going to report these simply because of the distance between them and myself. Having had a day to think on it, made me feel it best to include this with the rest of my sightings and encounters.
I cannot say what it was, but due to my personal experiences as well as knowing where to look and when, leaves me feeling that it was not a meteorite.
I could not capture either on camera because of distance for one, and speed for the other.
That's all I have to share for now.
Take care and stay well Brian.
