Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO.
With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.
August 28th 2006 : Aylmer, Quebec
Aylmer, Quebec Witnesses Observe Three Stationary Balls Of Light
Date: August 28, 2006
Time: Approx: 8:40 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 3
Shape of objects: Balls of light.
Full Description of event/sighting: On the evening of August 28, 2006 at approximately 8:40 p.m. my wife and I were finishing a walk with our dogs when, as we turned onto our street facing west, we saw three balls of light stationary in the sky over west Ottawa/Gatineau. It was difficult to estimate distance, but the objects were west/south-west of our location in Aylmer.
The balls of light were a reddish orange colour, many times brighter than any star, of which there were a number in the sky to compare. I initially thought the objects were helicopters, although, as noted, they were completely motionless for several minutes and there was no discernable noise coming from them (given the brightness of the lights, I would expect that, if they were helicopters, they would be almost directly overhead). A plane flew beneath the objects indicating again, for comparative purposes, that these did not resemble in any way normal aircraft flying at night. The balls were in a triangle formation, with two objects horizontal to each other and fairly close together, and the third higher and between the others.
As we approached our house, my wife went inside to get the camera. I turned my attention to something else for a minute and when my wife had returned with the camera and I had refocused on the objects, we noted that one had disappeared. Looking carefully, I could faintly see it moving to the south, although it had diminished in its intensity. Several moments later, the ball that had been beside it also began moving to the south, following the path of the first. It also lost its intensity almost immediately. Then the third object moved in the same direction, following the track of the first two and also becoming more faint. The time interval between the movements of the objects was approx. 15 to 20 seconds.
Although I am generally not a believer, nor overly interested, in UFO theories or phenomenon, I cannot conclude that the objects were aircraft in the conventional sense. Unless the event was some type of planetary or heavenly phenomenon, I could not provide any other idea of what may have happened. In the rush to take a photo, the objects did not show up clearly, although they resemble the objects caught by camera and posted in another report on this site.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
