August 1st 9:30pm
I was at home on the evening of Aug. 1 2003, around 9:30pm watching TV when I noticed a light outside. We are on an approach to the Oshawa Airport, so I immediately thought it an aircraft. The light was quite bright though - solid, not blinking, but was streaming what looked like sparks and traveling from East to West. Most air traffic fly's into Oshawa from South to North over my house. I got up to have a look and kept my eyes on it. As it got to the halfway point over my backyard, the "light" then faded out. Interesting I thought, and sat back down to watch TV. A few minutes later, my son noticed another light and we both got up and went outside and watched this one do exactly the same thing. Each event from beginning to end (when the light went out) was approx. 30 secs. A couple of minutes later, another one came over. Then another. My next door neighbor came out to have a cigar, and I heard him yelling to his wife to come and see these things in the sky. I went up to my bedroom and grabbed my still digital camera and binoculars. We actually saw two at once on one occasion, cris-cross each other. When I viwed the object through the binocs, all I could see was the solid white light. As it got to the halfway mark in my backyard, the light faded, but I could still see a shape (squareish and appeared to be tumbling, slowly end over end). I took a couple of pictures that are available. In total, we saw about a dozen of these things over a 45-60 minute period.
