In 2009 an associate and I started to amass UAP reports from Southern Ontario in order to gain some insights into where the
"hotspots" were as regards anomalous aerial activity. This was in preparation for a joint field mission scheduled
for July/August 2009.
Some of those reports are listed on the following pages as being of particular interest. Links are provided to the reports'
sources, and a number of reports were sent to us directly.
18th December 2012 - Whitby
Time of event: 02:45 UTC
Travelling west on Conlin Road toward Thickson Road, Brooklin, object appeared to be descending at a very high rate. It passed
in front of us approximately 500 feet flying from the North to the South. After crossing
Conlin the craft banked and turned
to the south west crossing Thickson Road at the same rate of descent and appeared if an
airplane would have crashed into a
horse pasture to the south.
The object stopped descending hovered over a stand of trees south of Conlin, and to descend
into the stand of trees and within
the next few seconds ascended from the stand of trees vertically and continued to travel
to the southwest at tree level where
it appeared to disappear.
This craft we thought initially was a military plane akin to C-130 though it was much
thinner and longer then this type of
aircraft. It was also peculiar in that it had no markings, no windows or lighted becons.
It became further clear that it was
not a conventional aircraft when it made the banking turn to the south west. At that time
it clearly had small semi circular
wings attached at the base of the aircraft and had no visible engines on the wings.
It was very clear we saw something that was not identifiable as a known aircraft. We were
mystified and did not know what
to think. We where totally mesmerized by it and have spent hours looking at pictures of
aircraft attempting to identify it
without success. My husband who was with me is an Airport designer and very familiar with
aircraft silhouettes and has never
seen anything like it.
Sketch later produced by MUFON
This aircraft passed right in front of us,initially we thought it was a plane crashing
because of it's rapid loss of altitude.
Are inability to explain this event otherwise motivated us to contact Mufon. There were
two of us that witnessed this, however
there was light traffic in the area that could have witnessed this. What was extremely
strange was there were long tubular
elements one on each side of the craft.
The witnesses also contacted us directly to report their encounter with the curious looking craft. They informed us
that the case was "investigated" not by MUFON in Canada but by an investigator from Texas, and over the 'phone!
We met up personally with the witnesses at their home to get a better understanding of the location in which the event occurred,
as well as take photographs of the area.
On December 8, 2012 at approximately 6:30 p.m., my husband and I were travelling east
on Dundas St., between 6th line and
Trafalgar in Oakville, Ontario. I was the car passenger and was watching all of the plane
activity in the sky because it was
a clear night and there were lots of planes.
One passed over our car high in the sky, but not as high as the other planes. As a matter
of fact it caught my attention because
it was a lot lower than the rest of the planes. As it passed over, I could see under it
and it seemed to be solid and triangular
It had 4 lights underneath and I had to do a double take, but I could not see through
the object, for example: between the
wing and the body, because it was one mass.
I yelled to my husband who did not slow down because he was anxious to get to a dinner
party in Toronto and the object was
moving further west out of sight.
The roads were busy and we were near the parking lot of the SuperCentre plaza which was
also busy. I am curious if anyone
else saw this. If someone weren't paying attention they would see the lights and assume
it was a plane.
I received a report from a witness who was driving east along Highway 401 in Whitby, Ontario.
Date and time were not provided, so I can only guess that this event occurred the day
previous to my receiving the report
on the 6th December 2012.
If the witness would like to contact us again providing those details that would help
to narrow this event down somewhat.
Also please confirm the two locations
"Was driving east on the 401, stop and go traffic, through Whitby.
Saw three white lights like landing gear on an airplane with one red light near the back.
Hovered over General Motors, then moved east. Then as I drove through Courtice it hovered
over the power plant.
As I got close to it over the power plant I noticed it looked like a black stealth bomber."
Note: The map (click on image for full-size version) below shows the two sightings
(if I have the GM location correct
and the power plant as being Darlington nuclear generating station correct) occurring
approximately 10 miles apart.
It would also be helpful to have the timings of the two sightings.
Thanks to the witness.
23rd November 2012 - Richmond Hill
Last night, my husband and I were travelling north on Leslie towards Stouffville Sideroad,
north of Elgin Mills at approx
6:30pm. I first noticed the object (I was driving) directly north. It looked as though
it was very close, enough to clearly
see that it was triangular. The distance from the left and right points on the triangle
were much farther apart than the top
point to the bottom. There were lights at each point, in different colours. It was hard
to tell the colour of the lights because
it looked like the colours kept changing. There were 2 spotlights shining on what appeared
to be the underside (or side) of
the object. These spotlights were on the far left and far right of the object - near the
points, and pointing toward the middle
of the object.
It was between 500 and 750ft away. I pointed it out to my husband, and he watched it travel
southeast (toward Markham). He
commented that he had no clue what it was. It was very clear, yet hard to make out at
the same time (if that makes sense).
He also said that if it was an airplane/jet, it was odd that it was heading to Buttonville
Airport - it was much larger than
what would land there (biplanes). My husband is a huge skeptic of everything unknown,
and he was shocked and taken aback.
It definitely did not look like a commercial aircraft. My husband lost track of it when
we started heading east on Stouffville
(Editor's note: Buttonville Aiport handles MUCH more than "biplanes."
I live in the Lakefield, ON area and came home last night, parked my car and ran upstairs
to use the washroom. There is a
skylight at the top of my stairs and as I got closer I could see what I thought were extremely
As I got closer I realized that the lights were not stars and there was some sort of aircraft
just above the house. The lights
in the middle of it formed a triangular shape and I can remember seeing blue and red lights
to the left and right of that.
It was flying really low. I ran downstairs and outside and watched it go across the front
field and over the field across
the road at a slow pace in the direction of Peterborough.
I called the OPP and airport authority today and no one has any answers for me at all.
21:40h Near Appleby line, 3 bright white rapidly blinking lights; VANISHED, only to reappear
further away moments later.
Travelling north-west on Appleby Line, towards downtown Milton. Off to the right (East)
was something in the sky. It was dark
out. The object was about 5 kilometres away and perhaps a thousand to fifteen hundred
feet up (perhaps at 20 degrees rise
from the horizon). There were three bright white lights, each on for about a third of
a second. They took turns turning on
in rapid succession. The object had one pale white light on the whole time, about centered.
Other airplanes were flying in the area, at least three were preparing to land at Toronto
Pearson airport, 30 km to the East
(they had their headlights on in the clouds as they approached overhead). This was NOT
an airplane. It seemed not to travel
in any direction. Two of us saw this. It then vanished.
A few moments later it appeared further away, maybe 8km? and at ten degrees to the horizon
(just a hair above the faraway
trees). We were driving this whole time, then lost sight of the object. about 2 minutes
P.S. Never have I seen questionable objects in our skies, but three times now it has occurred
in the past four weeks! And
this time I was not alone!!
23:30h Triangle of 3 very bright white lights hovering over Victoria ave and south service
Bright light (not moving?) visible from the QEW, Hamilton bound from St Catharines. Visible
from just past 7th street until
actual point of craft. It was stationary directly above Victoria Ave and south service
road. Triangle with a bright white
light at tip of each corner pointed west. Two paler lights, also white, flashing simultaneously
mid craft but not frequently.
No sound noticed... but I was driving on the Highway. Turned around, came back (5 mins
later) but it was gone.
21:25h Large silent metallic craft,very fast and no lights
I was enjoying a quite night with my family on our hot tub in our backyard, we turned
off the tub lights to admire the beautiful
night sky and watch the glimmering stars when out of the north west came this beautiful
V shaped craft, no noise and no lights,yet
she was gliding fast, light metallic grey and it must have been very close, we could make
out 7 large metallic spheres 3 on
each wing and one near the tip of the nose, we could notice the separation on the different
parts of the wings.
It came fast and at first glance I thought it was one of those stealth fighters but not
until suddenly and very graciously
the craft made a 90 degree turn and accelerated to a never to be seen again incredible
On Wednesday October 10 2012 at 8:17 pm in Mount Albert Ontario I saw a triangle shaped
UFO. It had a single light on each
point and it stayed slowly hovering in place over the corner of the small town. I was
driving in my car when I saw this and
I wasn’t sure what it could be so I turned towards it. After slowing down to a stop
directly underneath it I was able
to see the solid black body. This was 150 m off of Mount Albert road and highway 48.
I was on the phone with my dad at the time and was shocked in what I saw. I immediately
let him go but was unable to get a
picture with my phone. The triangle began to move away slowly, I had my window down and
it made no noise and no sound at all.
I began to follow it but it increased in speed and then just disappeared.
I watched this for roughly about 30 seconds one thing I know for sure is that it was NOT
an airplane and it was NOT a helicopter.
Silent triangular craft moved slowly east with steady white lights on each point
On Tuesday morning the 9th of October 2012 at 5:25am, in Caledon, ON, Canada, the youngest
boy (2yo) woke up crying in the
room where he slept and I went in to lay down with him in the room next to let our oldest
boy sleep. We laid down in bed but
he wouldn’t be comforted so I sat up with him facing the window. It was dark outside
and there I saw a craft flying
slowly, what seemed like just beyond and above the treetops. The trees are about 20-25
meters high and the craft was at about
30 degree angle off the ground. I would estimate it to have been at an altitude of about
50-250 meters depending on the distance
which was about 200-500 meters away.
It was hard to see but I think the physical craft was triangular in shape, solid body,
having a single steady white light
on each point in the triangle. One flashing light was in the middle, don’t remember
the color, and yet another flashing
light. The craft flew eastward and I viewed it south of me.
It’s hard to estimate the size of the craft as I’m not sure exactly how far
away it was, if it indeed was 200
meters away then I would say about 5-10 meters on each triangle side. If it was 500 meters
away then it would be much bigger
of course. The sighting duration was about 3-5 seconds after which it was behind trees
and out of sight.
The 2 yo was still crying so it was hard to hear if there was any sound, I couldn’t
hear any, even as the boy took new
breaths during which he wasn’t crying.
21:40h Ontario country road October 2012, large spotlight over home, and triangular object
with green & white lights across
road over treeline
On the evening of October 6 2012, I was driving east on the 6th concession in Elizabeth
township. It was approximately 9:40
p.m. I noticed a large, still, white spotlight about 20 feet over a farmhouse which has
a barn with cattle beside it. It was
about the same size as a large water search spotlight. I watched it for about 5 seconds
as I drove down the road towards it.
There is an outside streetlamp on this property attached to a hydro pole; the light above
the house was a much, much brighter
light. I glanced down at the road and then back up to see something directly on the other
side. (The spotlight was not over
the house anymore.)
Just above the tree line almost directly on the other side of the road was a triangular
shape hovering at the top of the tree
line. I had four lights only on the left side. The first light was green. The next three
were white. They were in a straight
line. The light’s colours looked man made, and not otherworldly.! I watched the
triangular, soundless, shape lower down
into the tree line for about 5 seconds. Not wanting to know what exactly it was, I sped
up and high-tailed it around the corner
to my home. The last thing I was about to do was stop and take a picture, so sorry about
08:16h UTC At the above date, time, and location, the writer was at work when he
noticed a large object hovering in
the sky. It appeared to be black in colour, and looked to be triangular in shape, with
multi coloured lights on the underbelly.
I called my fellow colleague over to take a look, he was convinced, as was I, it was a
UFO! Before long there were over 20
people watching this object hover in the sky, many people were taking pictures, and recording
video of this unknown object.
The object would move when planes were flying by, but stayed stationary for about 20 minutes,
then it flew away slowly heading
south towards lake Ontario. Nothing further to report at this time.
Report from Witness
Been going crazy for the last 2 days....2 nights ago on Thursday, Aug. 30th 2012 at approx
11:12PM I was travelling home from
a buddies house. I was travelling west on Rutherford (in Woodbridge, Ont) from Weston
Road and noticed an extremely bright
light from the distance...as I kept driving I realized it couldnt be a star because it
looked too close...as I approached
the stoplight at Rutherford and Islington Road to the right of me just over the Harry
Putter golfing range i saw 3 distinct
lights in a triangle shape...I tried to get a closer look and it appeared to look exactly
like the triangle ufo diagram that
has been reported as seen all across Southern Ontario
It wasn't even that high in the air..it was still and completely quiet...I couldnt figure
out what I was looking at...I ruled
out planes and helicopters and realized I was looking at something very bizarre...I looked
at the cars beside me..to the left
the girl was on her phone and not paying attention and to my right the guy in his car
saw what I saw..however the light turned
from red to green and everyone just drove off..I wish I stopped..I wish I took a picture
but I was freaked out..when I passed
the intersection of Rutherford and Clarence I looked behind me and the lights appeared
to have vanished in thin air....I've
been trying to see if there were any other reports and so far none from the same night...would
love to know your thoughts
on this or if you heard anything similar from the same night...similar story to the one
found 2 years ago around Major Mack
and Islington...not far from there at all
(Note: I went to the above location on the following Sunday and then to the Kortright Centrewhich is just north of the Harry Putter driving range. I spoke with the young man in the car park and asked if he had seen
or heard anything about a triangle in the area. I asked him to contact us if something
does occur. - ed.)
Report from witness
Newmarket, Ontario, Canada
Witnessed by hundreds of people who were waiting on the soccer fields to watch the
9:55PM EDT to 10:10PM EDT
Three orange objects in orbit trajectory, moving NW through NE, each in 5 minutes succession
of one another. I have tracked
the ISS before, and these were equally MAGnitude -1 to -2. Strangely, they did not “pick
up speed” as they left
the horizon and approached the highest point like the ISS or other satellites, instead
their speed remained constant. Disappeared
once crossed terminator. No mention of such a bright object in my satellite tracking
sites (heavens above.)
Light was orange, and very distinctly triangular shaped hull.
Looking for possible launches, can not find any.
End of report
If anyone else witnessed these events please contact us with information.
Four triangular craft, three in formation, forth trying some stunts
Two craft traveled east to west, entered my view from behind. Seconds after the first
passed, two more craft joined into a
Three of the craft continued formation, the forth looped and zagged then returned to its
place. The craft appeared to be typical
airplane shape - the triangular shape of a planes wings; without the body of the plane.
Maybe like a stealth? The craft were bottom lit, the lights outlined the outside diameter,
rather than one light on the tip,
like the usual airplane. The lights were a soft amber.
None of us were able to hear engine noise.
During this sighting, we were able to look away from the craft, verify that each other
were seeing the same thing, then find
the craft on route.
Note, there is an air-force base to our north west, and to the west, a smaller airport.
However, these craft appeared to be too high to land at a strip so close by.
This all happened on April 26th on my way to a friends house.
Basically, I was driving Northbound on Highway 10 from Orangeville, when I noticed an
Amber flickering circular light ahead...
It was stationary and appeared to be just watching the cars. At first, it thought it was
just an extremely bright star with
the sunset. It wasn't much higher than the tree tops... probably only by about 100 feet.
I pulled down 15th Sideroad of Mono,
and stopped to try and get some pictures of it. It was still stationary. My iPhone's space
was full, so I couldn't take any
pictures. So I was trying to delete stuff, and that's when it began to move.
It started to slowly come towards me, and crossed the road in front of me, by probably
only 20 feet ahead. I could make out
the shape and everything. It was almost like a triangle, or pyramid of some sorts, but
I could kind of see through it. There
were some pulsating lights on the back of it, and it had that amber aura to it, which
appeared to be weaker the closer it
got. I tried flicking my car headlights in sync with the pulsating lights, to see if it
would gauge a reaction... it didn't.
Not to mention, there was absolutely NO SOUND from it. I've lived here all my life, and
would always look to the skies, and
you can always tell the difference from a plane and anything else.
Anyway, it crossed the road and continued to go south, very slowly, below the clouds.
That's when a second one appeared out
of the clouds and began following it relatively close behind. I didn't think that Planes
would do that, considering how slow
they were going, how low they were, as well as how dangerous turbulence is.
As they continued on, and they were about a kilometer or so away, I saw another light
begin to ascend from the tree line south
east of where I was stopped. It looked as if it was coming out of Hockley Valley. Anyway,
it rose up above the tree line,
and then dipped back down, and eventually rose again and continued to move south east.
I didn't have any space on my iphone because it's chalk full of music and over 150 photos.
I tried deleting a bunch, but this
all sort of happened so fast, and I was so captivated that I just couldn't take my eyes
away. I spent an hour and a half at
least watching this all unravel.
Group of lights on what may have been a disc or similar (not triangular craft.) Seen over
a farmer's field near Highway 24
at approximately 22.00h. This occurred about 11 miles south of the 23rd February 2012
23rd February 2012 - Orangeville
18.45h Triangular craft witnessed close to Caledon Lake Conservation Area. 3 witnesses.
Silent, slow-moving craft seen above
their vehicle. White, non-blinking lights were seen on the points and a red-orange light
in the centre. Altitude estimated
at less than 1000 feet. Craft then turned without banking and accelerated into the distance
over the conservation area.
This location is where the same three witnesses experienced:
It was a warm summer evening when 2 friends and I,a couple I lived with at that address,
were looking up and west watching
a KLM747 climbing south over Lake Ontario. That location is directly south of Pearson
International Airport about a half mile
north of Lake Ontario.
At this time I noticed two white balls of light between us and the jet, that gave some
perspective, flying from west to east.
I pointed it out to Lorainne and Andrew and the three of us watched the two craft make
aerial maneuvres like they were two
dogs chasing one another in a playful manner. At first sight they could not have been
much higher than half a mile because
they were between us and the 747 and slightly lower. If the pilots were looking east,
they had to see them. It was like two
people with laser pens casting the beams on a wall chasing each other.
No man made aircraft that I know of can turn and climb like that. My father was in the
RCAF, helped build the five Arrows
and ended his working career building and then inspecting guidance systems for Cruise
Missles so I have had decent exposure
to the aircraft industry and I would bet the farm that an intelligent life source was
influencing the flight path of these
They flew almost entirely from west to east with the exception of the circular like loopdy-loo
flight paths. They ended up
being east of us when they stopped travelling horizontally and went vertical climbing
higher. They both seemed to pick a spot
near each other, climb higher then dim from single bright white lights to three, dimmer,
blue lights in an equidistant triangular
pattern. That is to say that the both of them seemed to stop travelling east and went
up and both turned into their own triangle.
The three lights that comprised each craft were blue and kept dimming until they could
no longer be seen.
The funny thing was that all three of us said Hey, that looks like a couple of alien spacecraft.
Nobody freaked out and it
is only now, roughly five years later, that I felt compelled to add our experience to
the MUFON files. We saw something not
of this earth.
I observed an object in the sky. It had 3 sets of lights. The top set of lights was rotating
clockwise, the middle set of
lights was stationary and the bottom lights was rotating counter clockwise.
The object was silent and slowly drifted over the tree line somewhere over the St. Lawrence
after about 10 minutes.
I just wanted to share my story. In 1999 my mother, sister and I all lived in an apartment
in St. Catharines, Ontario. We
all had our separate bedrooms. My story takes place over the course of three days. At
2:17am I woke up and something drew
me to my sister's bedroom window. When I exited my room my mother was oddly also awake
and my sister was peering out her window.
We saw three bright lights in the sky in the shape of a triangle, kind of slanted to the
sky. These lights stayed in formation
and hovered in a zig-zag direction then seconds later disappeared.
The next night I awoke, again at 2:17am to find my mother and sister and we saw these
lights again, this time closer, and
brighter then they disappeared.
On the third night at 2:17am we all woke up again and witnessed the same light formation.
This time my mother contacted the
air force and airports who had no records of any air crafts flying through the sky; It
was then we knew it was ufo space crafts.
Years later I tried to find some sort of video, proof of what I saw and there is tons.
That is how I came across your page
with coincidentally the exact same lights.
It was a very cold clear winter evening. The snow was very crunchy and there was no wind.
I believe I was in 2nd year university,
so around 21 yrs old and probably 1975. I was out cross country skiing with my mother
on her 100 acre farm near Elora Ontario.
We were skiing towards the back of the farm thru the open field with our two dogs. It
was full dark, but probably not much
later than nine or so as my mom went to bed fairly early.
About 3/4 of the way back there was a fence that ran at right angles to our direction.
A single row of 20 year old or so trees
and bushes grew along this fence. Our attention was at first drawn to flickering light
in these trees. We thought it might
be hunters with flashlights out raccoon hunting and were immediately concerned as our
dogs had run on ahead.
As we got closer we saw a round light float up just above this single row of trees and
seem to bob along parallel to the fence
for a ways before sinking slowly back down to almost ground level. Probably around 30
feet rise / fall. We soon realized that
what we thought was flashlights was actually a number of round orbs in amongst the trees.
Some either on or near the ground,
some three or so feet up, and some higher in the trees. They all moved slowly, with slight
bobbing motions. It was difficult
to estimate how many there were, but our best guess was around twenty. All of the trees
were bare, and the lights thru the
branches created weird moving shadows on the snow.
As we got closer we called for the dogs, as we didn't know what we were looking at. I
had never heard of orbs, nor do I think
anyone was reporting seeing them back then. Honestly I can't remember what the reaction
of the dogs was - whether they were
barking at, ignoring, or exhibiting any other odd behaviour towards the orbs.
We got within 20 yards of the fence. The objects seemed totally oblivious to us. They
kept on gently rising up, sinking down,
bobbing along just above the tree tops or amongst the branches, and just sitting at various
heights. The light they gave off
was very bright - almost as bright as a full moon on a clear winter night. It was obvious
that the orbs were intelligently
controlled as they managed to avoid all contact with the tree branches and each other.
I would estimate that they were within
an area of a couple of hundred feet along the fence line. None ever came closer to us
or seemed to stray too far back from
this thin tree line. The field beyond was clearly visible thru the fence / trees.
Two orbs started to rise faster than usual from opposite ends of the fence line. As they
passed tree height they suddenly
accelerated to a tremendous rate of speed on what looked like a collision course. From
our perspective it looked like they
barely missed each other. Where their paths crossed the light momentarily flashed much
brighter than just double the light.
They continued on their individual trajectories until they disappeared from view.
The remainder of the orbs continued to float about. It almost seemed like a ballet with
two or three coming close together
and then floating apart, others circling each other, etc... Very elegant and controlled.
Beautiful to watch. Nothing like
balloons caught in the branches. Slow, deliberate movement both horizontal and vertical.
Individual orbs would cover the whole
200 feet horizontally and then return to their starting point.
We eventually decided that they must be some type of ufos, but they were all around two
to three feet in diameter ( as best
as we could tell based on the fence height ), and not the flying discs that we had read
about. How could there be anyone /
anything small enough to pilot them?
Although my mother and I didn't find the orbs themselves scary, I had read one of the
classic ufo books, which talked about
flying saucers sucking up animals and taking off. I became concerned that our two dogs
were going to be carried off. Looking
back, how these 3 foot balls were going to lift an Irish setter and a yellow lab I don't
In total, we watched for around 10 minutes. Occasionally another orb would rise up and
quickly disappear. Quickly as in so
fast that they created a continuous blur of light. I don't remember any of these high
As we made our way back to the farmhouse we could still see the orbs floating about (
the orbs were behind us ). The dogs
must have followed without a fuss or I would remember that.
Once back in the house it sort of sunk in. We weren't freaked out as much as intrigued.
Odd I know. We often talked about
how oddly calm we were.
We were freezing cold, and not willing to put our skis back on and retrace our steps.
Since our farm is on the corner of two
roads, we decided to get in our car and see if we could get back close to the location.
Unfortunately the sideroad had not
been plowed more than a hundred feet or so past the intersection. We never saw the orbs
We told the immediate family about what we'd seen over the next few days. None were particularly
interested. Over the years
I've told a few friends, but beyond that nothing. My mother died at 91 last spring. We
compared notes about what we remembered
sometime during her last year. Our memories matched almost identically except for one
odd point. She remembered the orbs as
giving off red light and I remembered the orbs as giving off pure white light.
It's probably possible to tie down exactly when this happened. Later that same week the
Guelph newspaper had a picture of
what was supposed to have been the clearest ufo picture to date. Shot locally. As I remember
the picture, it was of a classic
saucer shaped craft - not matching at all what we had seen. The coincidence is what stuck
Thanks to John Hayes at UFOINFO for letting us know about this event and connecting
us up with the witness who submitted
