South Shore, Lake Ontario
This video comprises short clips taken on the night of 1st August 2004. I set up the Sony TRV820 in Niagara-on-the-Lake on the beach at the end of my garden.
The weather was quite calm with little breeze and the temperature was around 20C. Some of the lights appeared as a "double" then changed to "triples" which is reminiscent of events from August 2001.
The closest airport to the camera would be Toronto International Airport and if these were planes then the closest they could be to the camera - if they were right over the airport - would be 40 miles.
I could see the separated lights from my beach in Niagara-on-the-Lake with no assistance from binoculars or zoom lenses on cameras. This makes it highly unlikely that these lights were from aircraft coming into land in Toronto!
