Over a period of two days in May UFOs were spotted by residents of Mississauga, Fort Erie, Newmarket, Waterford and Kitchener, Ontario.
On May 18, 2013 at about 9:45 p.m. three objects “flying in a triangle formation” were spotted over Fort Erie. According to a Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) report, the witness was driving with a friend when they saw “these weird lights in the sky. We noticed there were actually three flying in a triangle formation, varying distances with each other as they flew.”
At first it was thought that they must be lanterns because they could see what appeared to be a flame on the inside, “but there were only three staying in that triangle.” While driving home, they saw other people who took notice of the odd lights. When the witness checked for other reports of this phenomenon, another was found that occurred about a half hour later.
Another MUFON report notes the observation of two orange glowing ‘stars’ over Newmarket on May 19 at approximately 9:45 p.m. by three people. They were described as “extremely bright orange stars glowing in the sky” that were “smaller than the Moon and 5X larger than any star/satellite/planet visible in the clear sky.”
The witnesses, who were outside watching fireworks noted, “First one hovered northwest, while the second hovered southeast high and far in the sky before ‘fizzling out’ like a flame and disappearing.” They added that is was a “very clear, calm and cloudless night – perfect for star gazing, which is what we were doing in between fireworks.”
When they saw the first orange star it was “pulsating.” It was the “brightest light in the sky, and very large.” As it hovered, they compared it to the size of the Moon and other stars. Then they noticed the second one and concluded that the objects were not conventional aircraft.
“They appeared almost as far as the stars (away), so they looked like fireballs with no distinct edges to the naked eye. They were in proximity to each other like the sides of a perfect triangle.”
Then the one in the northwest suddenly began moving. It would “slow down (and) then hover in a northeast direction. Then the southeast one began similar movements toward the southwest until passing each other high in the sky.” Finally, “they ‘fizzled and faded’ like a flame.”
The sighting took “at least 20 minutes,” they noted adding that friends of theirs in Guelph had seen these objects as well.
Also on May 19 at about 10:10 p.m., a resident of Waterford Ontario spotted what appeared to be a UFO. According to a MUFON report, the witness had already seen “some unusual things in the sky but this was different.” The witness and father were outside when they saw “an orange to red glowing ball moving across the sky at a moderate to slow speed.”
The object traveled from the southeast to the northwest and “eventually just faded in the distant sky.” The “glowing object” moved in a “straight, steady line.” The entire sighting lasted approximately 11 minutes… “Both dad and I are struck with wonderment.”
As well on May 19 at about 9:38 p.m. during a fireworks display, a witness noted what at first appeared to be “flying glow lanterns” over Kitchener. According to a MUFON report, a “glowing ball” was seen to the “right of where the fireworks were being launched.”
The witness noted that the “fireball was just hanging there and drifting ever so slightly. Then I observed this glowing ball moving with increasing speed to the northwest on an accelerating straight path.” Eventually, it moved “several times the speed of an average airliner.”
The witness added that there were “no strobes or navigation lights,” as one would see on a private or commercial aircraft. “This object appeared exactly as observed and video recorded in Mexico on the same day – same red/yellow glowing objects with varying intensity, varying speed from near stationary acceleration in a straight line. I am a licensed private pilot and the characteristics were unlike any normal aircraft.”
