The sun was almost set. The sky was totally clear, except for this shape which was white.
I watched it from my living room window on 3rd Street, Whitehorse, YT. My first thought
was that it was a comet trail, but then I realized it was short. The "V" shape
was very defined and white (Figure 1). It was in stillness for about a minute and a half.
Then it very slowly and
gracefully moved down. My feeling was that I was seeing a very large object. It was then
that the one very large very bright and very white light appeared (Figure 2).
After the one light
appeared the V shape changed position and I could see a string of these exquisite lights
I did not think to count
them. The defined white V was still there, I was in awe, I thought and felt it was very
beautiful. There were many very large lights. I believe I watched it in this position
about another minute and a half. Then it disappeared west. I took 7 photos while this
movement took place.
Fig. 4. Full Frame image of first photo taken in Whitehorse on
September 25, 2002. The photo lab was asked to darken the image as much as they could. The
first time they developed them the sky was washed out white. Some bright lights can be
seen to the right of the curved awning.
Fig. 5. Magnified portion showing lights (UFO)
Fig. 6 Since the sky area was overexposed and the UFO consisted of bright lights, the
contrast was enhanced to make them more visible.
Fig. 7. Even a higher magnification. The other 6 photos showed less detail as the object
was moving away.
You may want to check out
my negative!! I had started to use the remaining film by taking pic's of places in the
apartment. Then decided to just rewind and develop. What appeared in a picture totally
surprised me to say the least.
