UFOs over Montreal?

Witnesses agree sighting was “out of this world” but police point to helicopters

Mysterious objects in the sky in Montreal have led people to believe there was a visit to the city by UFOs. Among the witnesses was a Montreal doctor, Cleve Ziegler, who believes he saw something “out of this world” in the strange blinking lights hovering high in the sky. He said, “There were many little sparkly red and blue lights. It had a changing shape, morphing from something that looked triangular to something that looked like a trapezoid. It was not a stable shape.” Others said they saw the same thing, and several even called the police to report the mysterious sight. But Const. Daniel Lacoursière said Trudeau Airport reported nothing on the radar in that area and suggested that around that time, helicopters were buzzing around the site of a fuel spill at the Port of Montreal.
