WAINFLEET: Last night, just before 6 p.m. I noticed two strange lights in the South-Western sky. The lights appeared to be a transmission tower situated in the middle of Lake Erie. Problem was the night before there was no tower in that area because I had stood on my deck facing the same area and had commented to my wife how clear the heavens were.
I watched the lights for a few minutes and they seemed to sink on the horizon. The lower light was very bright and seemed to move slightly toward me.
We had plans to go out to dinner so I took my camera with us and set off to the restaurant. I stopped once along the way and shot another couple of photos. We arrived at the restaurant and I could still see the lights in the sky however they were much lower on the horizon.
My initial thoughts were that these lights were very bright stars or planets. Where I live I have often seen Mars, Jupiter and Venus, but never in the same sky or this close together.
Anyway, I decided to enjoy my dinner and examine the photographs where we got home.
Upon returning home I plugged the digital camera in and transferred the images. The photo clearly showed two round objects, one stacked upon the other. Close-ups clearly showed round objects - most likely planets. I sent the photos to UFO Digest's editor Robert Morningstar for examination and he didn't disappoint.
Then we checked our phone and there was a message from Fort Erie (Canadian city connecting the Peace Bridge to Buffalo, New York) and received a sighting report identical to my sighting. I was speaking with the couple from Fort Erie when Robert replied to my email:
