UFO over Niagara Falls?
Residents, tourists report strange flashing object hovering over tourist district
What the heck were those lights in the sky Saturday night?
That's the question scores of Niagara Falls residents and tourists were left to ponder after seeing an unusual, spectral pattern in the night sky over the tourist district for a period between 9 p.m. and midnight.
Some say the unidentified phenomenon looked like a metallic object hovering motionless and without sound.
"At first it look like a circular tear in the sky," said Joshua Green, who lives on Robinson Street. "When the spotlights from the casino would rotate, they would hit the object . . . and it would illuminate the object and create a flash coming back down.
"I had never seen anything like that before."
Scott Jordan wrote: "When the four search lights that light up the night sky (over Niagara Falls) came together it appeared like there was something in the sky and it was reflecting the light."
I thought it was really weird, like an escaped weather balloon.
But I think it was in the same place all the time?
i watched it from the 420 on my way home, and you could see it clear as day, without the lights hitting it.
it was completely silver and reflective....no distinct shape to it..
We were waiting for our hotel shuttle bus and for the 20-30 mins that we were waiting it did not move or make any noise, but then again it was very high in the sky.
I was walking home and noticed in the sky this orange object moving very fast and then exited the atmosphere because it dissapeared. The object was visible for no longer than 5 seconds. 15 minutes later I noticed an atmospheric phenomenon along with my mother because I showed her. It looked like there were these lines in the sky which the one was lighting up very well when the city spotlights that pollute the sky with light hit the right angle (because the light is 4 spotlights that rotate) only for a second on each rotation of ~15 seconds does the one line light up. There was some patterns I could barely where the lines were coming from so there was a lot more I could not see. Because of light pollution its not that visible except for that one that got the spotlight on when it had the right angle with the rotation. The others were too high in the air too recieve much light? Its as if its the reminisce of whatever I observed and left in the atmosphere. I do not have a camera to take a picture. Its slowly dissapearing but still visible 30 minutes later faintly. Should this have been reported at all or is this clearly a meteroite.
How does light reflect light? Is that possible?
