Orb shaped UFO sighting over Hamilton - Oct 7 2016. 6:51 am

(Hamilton, Ontario)

Hello, I have no picture available as it was a short sighting, maybe visible for four to six seconds. I was just about to cross the street in the heart of downtown Hamilton, standing beside the public library and a salon college, facing York St. as something in the sky on my left caught my eye.

Glancing upwards I see a bright green orb streaking across the clear, dark blue sky, a trail dragging behind it looking like a mixture of a jet exhaust and a comets tail.
It looked to be at the height of a low flying plane, but just by the colour and trail left behind I could tell it wasn't one. The trail stretched about the length of a half city block behind it, based on height and its size. The craft itself seemed to be sparking at the rear as it shot diagonally forward overhead, before heading out of sight behind a factory. It seemed to be heading Northeast towards Toronto, far as I could tell.

Unfortunately it was so quick I didn't have the time to snap a picture, and co-workers of mine were far enough ahead they didn't see anything, being across the street and unable to see the sight above and behind them. I have spotted odd lights in the sky around my city before, but this has been the most surreal and detailed sighting I've seen.

I ask this question with all due respect.

Were you under the influence of any medication or narcotics when you observed this phenomenon.
