Kanata UFO (Venus)

Filmed this morning (Sept 29, 2012) in front of my house at 6:15am. It was gone by 7:00am and we first noticed it at 4:30am.

We've seen it a few times over the past couple of weeks and always during the 4am to 6am time frame. If you live in south Kanata (Bridlewood or Emerald Meadows), Ontario, Canada, then you can look for it in the sky during that time.

Update: October 17, 2012. After doing more research it seems that this object was likely the planet Venus. I did not know that Venus could appear as such a large bright ball of light in the eastern morning sky until I saw some pictures at I've included them below for comparison purposes.

In the upper right of the first photo below, you’ll see the planet Venus with the fainter star Regulus next to it. Migizi Gichigumi took this photo on the morning of October 1, 2012, on the shores of Lake Superior in northern Wisconsin.

Here in the second photo (below) is Venus (upper right) and the very old moon on the morning of September 14, 2012, as seen by VegaStar Carpentier in Paris.

While Venus is certainly very beautiful to look at, I would've preferred to have actually seen a UFO. With that in mind I'm including below one of my favourite UFO videos from about 2 years ago when some were seen over Manhattan.

  1. Make use of Stellarium and tell us if it was Mercury or Jupiter.
