born and raised in niagara fallsarea, have visited your site often, but never joined, have watched hundreds of hours of ufo footage and documentaries as research for a potential doc series i am considering about ufos in canada. i didnt witness this myself, but many of my friends work and live right there and i have talked to them about it.


1. we all know what is in the skies, here. yes there is a giant balloon, but it is on the american side, is tethered at night, and is a pale white, which would not produce such a reflection. if it were a blimp, people would recognize it as so, and see it there... my friend who works at boston pizza started to observe it at 830, when its still not pitch dark out, if it were a blimp it would be low enough to be recognized as so, wasnt a blimp.

2. the casino located near the falls has a set of 3 or 4 spotlights which can be seen in the skies every night from 2 or 3 towns over, very noticebale, and so omnipresent that we know what they look like....they are the lights that are the cause of the reflection. my friend noted he first saw it at 830 and last saw it at about 1030pm ....other accounts have it around till midnight, and one poster on the local papers website says shes been seeing them for 3 weeks, as another account from a person who ive talked has also said, shes seen them a few times over the last couple weeks, ill see if i can get a hold of her.

3. there is a military base just over the border in niagara falls, ny. they have made a statement saying that they had no planes in air at that time and do not know what it was.

4. what do we know...metallic, possibly triangular, quite large and obscure enough to capture the attention of both tourists AND locals. and lingered there for hours.

5. also to note...each side, canada and us, have massive hydroelectric power plants which produces electricity for a large portion of southeastern canada and northeastern us. the area also has many bright lights in the las vegas-esque strip over which the object was sighted around.

not light pillars, definitely #ing not any sort of gas or mist from the falls, find it hard to believe the thing is a blimp, at night, with barely any lights that would seem to reflect of a metallic object of considerable size.

you be the judge....but definitely not normal, i do remember a man my dad went to church with who said he saw a ufo over the skylon a while back, who was ridiculed into depression i think, maybe not so crazy after all?...there is also another famous ufo sighting from the niagara falls area from 1965 as well if anyones interested in looking into it.

i will do little further investigating into this myself

I would be surprised if a witness can describe exactly where this object was.


Quite right - they would not be able to accurately estimate its size and hence estimate its distance.

What they could supply are the cold hard facts as to where they were and which direction they were looking.

Very, very few of the numerous comments in news reports and posted by witnesses on Youtube and various forums give these cold hard facts.

Without these very basic facts, looking into this event (despite the numerous witnesses) is probably a waste of time...

Opinions from witnesses are fine, but the basic facts are fundamental to any real consideration of the event. Similarly, the various videos and photos are fine - but the surrounding facts context are vital to put them in context.

All the best,

Isaac

I am the Amanda that took the photo posted on the first page of this thread. When I took the picture I was down at the falls at the lookout above where the Maid of the Mist departs from. I set my camera on the night setting and set it down on the stone wall that is right along the edge of the falls. I didn't have a tripod so I set it with the display screen down and the lens aimed up. It was completely flat on the stone, so I just had to push the button and try not to move it too much. So the object was directly above that point. The 2 orange lights were always on and the white light was the reflection of the casino cameras. Hope this helps!

I am sorry Is, but that was something suspended as you stated in the OP for a business. Probably had some reflective lights attached.

last responder have you ever been to niagara falls? nothing would be "suspended from a business" without a hundred employees and tourists and locals seeing it....secondly, it would NOT be above the cloudline, even if suspended a busines, and thirdly, there is no possible way it would have been up that high if it were tethered to something, this would be EASILY noticeable, as there are so many lights in the area, it would without question be illuminated....you are wrong straight up dude.

oh and (pardon me for double posting) but there is also no possible way they could get the object up and down out of the sky, being so huge, and watched by so many people, without numerous people seeing it being done...definitely NOT something tethered to any business. To make such a direct authoritative statement like that is insulting to our intelligence.

How big was it?.....exactly please.


..definitely NOT something tethered to any business.


And you know this how?


To make such a direct authoritative statement like that is insulting to our intelligence.


ditto for your above statements.

Sheesh!

You can all try to figure out what was seen and you will all have different answers as to what was seen. All I can tell you for 100% fact is that we live on a street just off of Valleyway and the lights started as two tear drop shapes then over a small amount of time formed into lines. There was about 5 or 6 lines in the sky almost forming a V shape pattern. They did not move or blink like Rick already stated. They had a green glow to them and they appeared to be misty. They stayed for a few hours and then vanished.

We have lived in this same spot for almost 6 years and from our front deck we can watch the fireworks from the Falls, we can hear the Falls and we can watch the lights from the casino. We are avid sky watchers and we love to take photos of the sky and these lights from that night are NOTHING like we have ever seen before. These lights appeared to be high in the sky, way farther in the sky then the fireworks go up. We do not believe for one second that these lights were from a building in the Falls or a balloon of some sort. This is something that we have never seen before and haven't seen again since that night. Up until that night I don't think I believed in UFO's. I never would have admitted I did anyways...and now all I will say for sure that what the four of us witnessed that night from our front driveway is nothing we can explain.

i never made any authoritative statement as to what it is at all...i have no idea what it is. i merely stated what it clearly isn't. it clearly wasnt tethered to any business. it clearly was absolutely not light pillars. it is unexplained as far as im concerned.

rickandkathy....would you be interested in doing a short video interview describing what you saw, where it was located, and the circumstances in which your photos were taken, preferably from the area in which you made the sighting...would be greatly appreciated, i live in the city.

It seems like a blimp, maybe a stealth blimp (like a youtube comment suggests)?

lol...that stealth blimp mentioned on youtube is a CONCEPT from the 1980s from Lockheed Martin, there is no evidence it was ever built. here is a site dedicated to ufo sightings which could be contributed to the existence of a possible secret stealth blimp, www.thestealthblimp.com... ....but triangle shaped objects are seen all over the world (the infamous belgian photo probably being the most well known)....mch more plausible than both light pillars and the "object tethered to business" theories.

We are not looking for publicity, "fame" or such. I never said it was flying, moving, drifting, flashing, blinking, reflecting or ANYTHING like that. All we were looking for was maybe an explanation or to see if anyone else had seen this that evening. Anyone who has lived here in the falls would know that this was truly out of the ordinary and that those "lights" or whatever they were, was hard to explain. We have seen all the casino lights, Ferris Wheel lights, Clifton Hill lights, strobe and spot lights in the 5 years living here. THIS was nothing like that.

We witnessed the straight vertical lines of light from the Jordan, Ontario area. They were east of us in the area of Niagara falls but were also off to the south. They stretched quite high into the sky and except for their location, they very much resembled Northern Lights that I had seen before. The recorded images from Niagara Falls where they appear to be directly below the lights are very interesting to say the least. From our perspective it was definately not any sort of tethered object and didn't appear to have any sort of main body to it. Just pillars of light across a wide spance of sky.

Can't speak for the video but the photos in the thread look like light pillars converging at the zenith...

iattack, perhaps you would be able to consider light pillars from THAT photo, but then you completely ignoring the fact that in ALL the videos and testimonies, that when the spotlights, i believe located at the beer garden on clifton hill, moved around and converged on a certain spot, that it would cause a reflection quite brighter than the lights on the cloud. so perhaps, if youd like to be selective in your analysis, then yes, you could possibly come to that conclusion....if indeed it is causing the light pillar effect (which can come from any light source mind you...and may not even be the case at all) ....it just shows that there indeed is an obscure unexplainable light source, as well as something metallic that is reflecting light...seeing as it hasnt even be very cold out week, even at night, that it may not have even been proper conditions for such an effect to occur. also, the same lights and related effects were viewable from numerous locations across the downtown area of the city....seems with light pillars, its all in your perspective, and people in different locations wouldnt necessarily see the same effects...like a rainbow....an all too common sight around here.

Nice find! Starred. People mentioned light beams previously in the thread, but that specific example shows how the lights could have been broken. The reflection would have appeared to be something solid.

I think, if the weather conditions matched on the night in question, that's a very good candidate for an explanation. Mother nature is frickin amazing.

Follow the link in my post.

As far as witnesses go; here is what RickandKathy have to say...


They did not move, rotate or flash. They were there for at least 3 hours! There seemed to be a "mist" or clouds around the lights but the sky was very clear.


www.flickr.com...

This seems to be typical of many witnesses and sounds like what I would expect of light pillars. The astronomer interviewed in the story said it was cold enough for ice to form in the atmosphere that night.

People at different locations had different experiences, as evident by the video and photos but they all resound of light pillars. I think the folks in the video were lucky enough to see the reflection of one or more of the rotating spotlights intermittently reflecting off the ice crystals.
