To bad they don't land.
If the people had some better grasp of the situation they would
realize the UFO is in trouble and is waiting for the tow truck UFO.
There was a post about how the saucer UFO rescue works and
is also in "Man Made UFOs".
Well not that the higher UFO pulls up the lower one, cause thats
what it does, but that one from a group lowers down to the
malfunctioning craft.
Thats the giveaway.
The UFO is within sight and lights are flashing aimlessly.

Yes i like that one. WTF is that. I managed to freeze frame at 17 and 44 seconds which is two of the times its lit up a little ,a shape can be made out but does not look like any blimp I have seen before.Although that could be a trick of the light. Um interesting.

Yes! These seem to be great videos! I can't believe this is getting less attention than the whole Norway "Rocket" thing. There seems to be some real depth here. Maybe I should collect photographs and videos and start a blog investigating this. If what we are seeing really are alien craft then something deeper could be at foot. Any thoughts anybody?

Agreed! One of the more interesting cases.

A video claimed to be of March 21, 2010:
YouTube: UFO in Niagara 3 March 21, 2010.wmv

Best explanation would be a blimp held in place by three or more lines. Probably installed by the place operating the spotlights. Strange coincidence that the object loves parking in the place where it is hit by the spotlights, isn't it?

Second best would be an alien spaceship charging batteries.

Third best would be aliens sightseeing

Yes, however I was just there and there is no blimp in sight during day time. Let's be real here, why would any one put up a blimp during the night time (by all the accounts, it's made clear that no one can see "a/the" blimp). That would have to be the worst advertising technique ever.

Hmm, yes, it would be unusual advertising. A blimp is just more likely than E.T. parking his craft in a spotlight. Repeatedly.

Maybe it is some sort of "viral marketing". UFOs are a very popular subject, which has almost religious value for some people. So if you can create a lot of buzz about something mysterious going on, people will travel to the location out of curiosity. Think ghost castle, Loch Ness, bleeding statues of Virgin Mary, etc.
Let's say the local casino keeps a blimp in its backyard, hidden away from public view. In the night they let the blimp up and get it back down before dawn. They keep this surreptitious game up until the place has a reputation like Roswell or Area 51. Voilà: Niagara Falls have just been revived as #1 tourist attraction.

Of course you are in a much better position to get to the bottom of this mystery as you can go there in person (I live in Europe). Shots with an IR camera would be very interesting.

One thing I find suspicious in the video: They claim a plane passes BELOW the UFO. The airplane is very hard to see on the video, a tiny dot. That would mean it is flying at a high altitude. Now, if the UFO is even higher - how could the spotlights ever light up its surface? These are not lasers, just spotlights. I have never seen a spotlight reaching up 5 or more miles, lighting up an object so that the reflection is visible to the naked eye from the ground.
Therefore I would estimate that the distance of the UFO from the ground cannot be more than a few hundred meters (half a mile). The "airplane passing below" is bad observation on the part of the persons speaking in the video, or they try to mislead intentionally.

Aside from the casino, the UFO restaurant is another candidate who would benefit from a "UFO hot-spot location":
UFO restaurant

But believe me, personally I would prefer a neat spaceship over a lame blimp anytime

I have read the whole thread in detail. Blimp is unlikely, indeed. I think light pillars (reflections off ice particles) are the best explanation.

In the last video of this topic, a high altitude aircraft passed directly beneath the object, I mentioned this in the other thread. You do raise some very excellent points though about ice crystals and vapor, this is right next to the falls and the falls are constantly ejecting water vapor into the air. During the day there is a large mist directly above the falls on the Canadian and US sides. water vapor forming ice crystals could very well be a valid answer.

Very true, this is what is unique about this place. So it would be a likely explanation for an unusual phenomenon. The people making the videos, however, seem convinced that these are not reflections on ice particles. See comments to this video:
Link to YouTube with interesting comments

But with all that mist it might simply be cloud formations (water, not ice). Hard to tell from the videos.

UFO in NIagara 1,2,3,4, are mine...youtube compression makes the video even worse. My raw footage is clearer.The spotlights CAN shine all the way up to the clouds. I can watch the spots on the clouds from miles away. A blimp is absolutely impossible. The winds would cause it to move around. BUT it does not move at all. I do not move the tripod or camera at all for the hours it is there at times. Why advertise in the dark at night in winter??

NO... can't be ice pillars. Once again, it is windy and ice would move and disperse. This does not. The camera on the tripod is never moved. Ice pillars are rare and I highly doubt would come and go in the same spot...

the ufo restaurant you refer to is a small 'mom and pop' kind of place, called 'the flying saucer' It is an old school drive-in with sunday nite cruise nite. Way too far from the actual falls itself. This object is not there in daylight, and during winter around here it is pretty dead, not the best time to spend big bucks putting something that high up in the sky...

I dont know about anyone else here, but I always found it strange and almost too convenient that all extraterrestrial and crypto footage is always too grainy or the quality is too poor to really get anything conclusive. I figure nowadays most people have HDish capable equipment and there are enough people out there roaming day to day with DSLRs with some crazy lense on it. Seems like all of these are filmed with cameras from 15 years ago. Thoughts?

On the flip side, the few high quality photos that we do see look like models and pie plates. Are our expectations too high? I mean after all, extraterrestrials have been coming here for thousands of years now. Maybe we arent realistic in capabilities.

Me and my roomies seen it around 11:00 pm tonight. I was kind of suspicious when we did some digging and found videos from friends posted on youtube. So far alls I can say for certain is we seen somthing. A buddy got a picture but it was no good. I live downtown Niagara falls and 'it' seemed to be almost directly over the spotlights. I guess it made the paper a few times but I never knew about it till now. And it would be great if the flying saucer drive in would lift off and fly away. Its more like the flying dumpster

I wasn't aware people were still seeing this around, I've seen it twice so far but that was when it was first started to be reported. I work midnights now so I'll definitely keep an eye out now.

It was above my house when I first seen it. About a 2 km away from the falls so i don't think it was ice crystals. It seemed like it was triangular with lights on both sides. Tho it was obscured by a little cloud cover. Every time the spotlights hit it the reflection was really bright. I did notice whatever it was is BIG, when the spotlights passed they jumped way farther in the sky indicating that the object was a just pretty close to earth.



Torment

By the way, it's back. And that proves it's not ice crystals, though Niagara falls is still a pretty special place, moisture wise.



I have a theory that might explain at least the later videos.. but given the fact that some pretty astounding videos has emerged from this exact area, it's not a very good theory.

Anyway, I figure that those spotlights might not be the only spotlights in that town. If other, static (not moving) spotlights were to converge over a single area, AND two of the spotlights from the Casino spotlights were to converge (point at the same spot in the sky) at this same spot, some kinda phenomenon might appear because of the heavy mist/high concentration of water particles in that town. That would explain why the UFO is in the exact same spot time after time too.

Also, no weather measurements that were conducted at any other place than the exact spot of the UFO would be relevant. Weather equipment only measures humidity and such, and isn't designed for huge water particles such as the ones that might come from a waterfall.

Oh, I see what it is. It's some kind of balloon held by several tethers and when the spotlights swing by they reflect off both the balloon and the tethers, which give is a triangular shape.

It can't be a balloon.... Someone would know about it and would be visible during the day and the hot air balloon ride they had a few years back was on the American side of the border and does not drift that far. heard another report of someone seeing it a few nights ago. Still no word on what it is. But is not a massive balloon that they only fly at night, a few times a month with a mirror the size of a house on it just to reflect the spotlight. Since me and my roomies seen it a lot of people have been asking what it was. Like i tell everyone I have no idea what it is but I do know what it isn't. I hope i comes around soon i would like to see it one more on a clearer night.

Hello,

I found this forum when I was searching the internet for information on the NF UFO. I think I saw it tonight, around 8:45 PM, on my way home from Fonthill on the QEW.

For those of you that know the area, I was passing the drive-in on the 406 and spotted a large shape in the direction of Niagara Falls, with two lights on the sides of it. I first wrote it off as Brock tower, then realized Brock was the other way.

For those not familiar with the location, I've included a link from google maps from my destination to where other people had reported it in the past (over Valley Way and Victoria).

Sighting location

As I travelled northwards, down the 406, I noticed it again to my right as the trees cleared my view. It appeared to be moving. More trees obstructed my view, and when I reached Lake Gibson (the body of water past Beaverdams), it was no longer visible.

I realize that my distance of roughly 14 KM is quite a bit farther than most accounts, but I'm certain I saw something. From my angle, it resembled the photo seen here :

www.onlineniagara.com...

I hope to see more sightings emerge tomorrow from different perspectives, and I also plan to go down the same route tomorrow night at the same time and see if this object is there again to confirm if it's a building or not.
