Nov 12th 12:30am approx.
I saw in the early morning of November 12th  (after 12:30 am) an unusual object flying back and forth in an area northwest of the Steeles Avenue and Bathurst Street area. I suppose it was in the sky over Thornhill. I viewed it with another person from a high-risebuilding (located between Finch and Steeles) for at least 10 to 15 minutes. (The other person saw the object before I did. I was woken up from my sleep by the other person to see the object). The object consisted of a pulsating red light.With a pair of binoculars, I saw only the red light (no other colours) and did not see any structure or wings. The object was moving abruptly and rapidly back and forth, as though it were surveying the area. I don't know if it was moving in a linear path back and forth, or in some kind of circular or quasi-circular path. I did not hear any noise associated with the object, but it was far away. Due to the fear that I experienced, I did not open the window to try to hear if there was a noise. This object changed postion several times in an abrupt and rapid manner that was not characteristic of conventional aircraft (plane or helicopter). This object was definitely not a meteorite, the planet Venus, or a pelican. It disappeared from my view at about 10 minutes to one in the morning. Perhaps technicians at the airport recorded something unusual on radar? This experience was upsetting. I would be interested if there were other people who observed this unusual object, or who might know what it was.
Our personal thanks to the witness and Errol Bruce Knapp for this report
