UFO Sighting Report - Canada

December 30th 2008 : Niagara Parkway, Ontario

Niagara Parkway, Ontario Four Huge Lights Lined Up In Possible Circle

Date: December 30, 2008
Time: 8:02 p.m.

Hi Brian, I spoke to you some time ago re a multiple metallic "flying saucer" sighting in the 1950s in Menihek, Labrador, by a neighbour.

While I have never seen a UFO that I didn't categorize as likely being landing lights from an aircraft or a star or planet, my friend and I did see something strange over the Niagara Parkway (Ontario) Tuesday night December 30, 2008 at 8:02 pm Eastern time. Because it was so strange, my friend took note of the time. We were about ten kilometers out of Niagara on the Lake heading for Niagara Falls when we observed four (4) huge, self-illuminated lights lined up in the beginnings of what might have been a circle. In other words, though we saw no shape of any kind behind the lights, they were equidistant apart, in a row that was slightly "bent." I used to be a student pilot and estimated them to be at roughly about 500 feet altitude. They were exceptionally bright - almost like movie klieg lights and I said to (my friend): "Jeez, have we seen them before!?" She replied: "No..." and I came back with: "What are they?" Naturally, one looks for a rational explanation such as some sort of new installation, even though I knew they were too high to be on any ground structure in our area.

We were coming to a turn with some trees following the parkway and I said: "Let's see them from over here. Four is too many for landing lights and a plane shouldn't be at that altitude anyhow." We rounded the bend, drove for five or ten seconds and they were gone. I stopped on the escarpment at the Brock Monument overlook to scan the area but could see nothing. The evening was fairly overcast but I don't know what the ceiling was that night - something that would likely be available. I decided to google lights, Niagara etc. to see if anyone else saw them and came across the other reports from Welland which is in our area - a few miles away. We also waited to see if there were any news report.

Anyhow, I wouldn't file a formal UFO sighting report as I have no idea what they were other than some strange, exceptionally powerful lights in the sky that shouldn't have been there. Their spacing was too close for multiple aircraft with landing lights on to be flying safely and, anyhow, I used to live on a flight path for Toronto International and never saw lights this bright on any aircraft! Pilots should be so lucky.

Just thought I'd tell you as we can't figure it out...all the best.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
