its november 5, toronto ontario, at about 1030-1100pm i witnessed the most expansive rays of red, green and white light running across the entire visible atmosphere. the light came from a definite origin near the centre of my view of the sky, it looked like blackness in the shape of an almond, and from there in all directions streamed the bright coloured and white lights all around the sky. airplanes were visibly flying much lower than the rays of light. the whole thing lasted a total of about 5 minutes intensly with a buildup prior and a fade away after. what or earth did i see? could it be the northern lights? i dont think toronto is north enough for something like that, but perhaps. thank you for any response.
Re: what was the amazing light show i just saw in the sky?
