Silent, bright object that seemingly hovered stationary above my neighbourhood. At approximately 6:10pm on March 5, 2018 I opened my backdoor to let my dogs in. I have a habit of looking up at the sky whenever I go outside. That night I looked up and saw a bright golden, yellow object hovering / floating above my neighbourhood, seemingly above my house.
It did not make a sound, it did not move in any direction. I stared at it for a few moments then though, I need to get my camera and zoom lens. I have a decent dslr and a 70-300 telephoto lens. I went back in my house and told my daughter as well, she followed me outside to check it out.
I hand held the camera and tried to get a good focus on what the object could be, but every time I zoomed closer it just looked like a blob. I will share the photos too. I also took out my smartphone and recorded a video, I still could not get a good focus on the object. Shortly after I started recording, my husband came home. I ushered him into the backyard so he could see the object as well.
He agreed it was weird and tried to get a good photo too. At that point, to me, it almost looked like it "separated" slightly then went back together again, but it could have just been my eyes playing tricks after staring at it for so long. While I was recording, a commercial plan few by, this helps with the distance and size of what ever it is. After about another 10- 15 mins, the object seemed to ascend slowly, then after a few more minutes, I could no longer see it.
It never made a sound. The photos have a lot of noise because I bumped the ISO really high. IMG-0238 is darker due to camera setting as I was trying to get a good shot. The last image IMG-0252 is very opaque, thats when it stared to go higher; my husband says it because the sun was going down; I'm not sure.
