1990, Montreal aerial phenomenon

On November 9th, 1990, in Montreal, Quebec, witnesses reported a round, metallic object of about 540 metres wide over the rooftop pool of the Bonaventure Hotel. Eyewitnesses saw eight to 10 lights forming into a circle above them, giving off bright white rays. The phenomenon lasted three hours, from 7 to 10 p.m., and moved slowly northwards. While no one could identify the lights, few, according to the next day’s report in La Presse, were ready to express their belief that they were visited by aliens.cite web| title =Montreal Mirror: "Montreal X-Files." | url=http://www.ufon.org/uforom/| accessdate = 2008-02-06]

2007, Chilliwack, British Columbia

Dave Francis and Kelly McDonald witnessed a UFO over UCFV campus in Chilliwack, British Columbia. Francis said, "I really think it was a UFO. I don’t really care if anybody else believes me ... it was the craziest thing I ever saw. Whatever it was, they were moving from place to place as a unit [and then] just faded away." McDonald said, "I know that I saw something that wasn’t from here. I’ve never seen anything move that way. It wasn’t birds. [As the UFO approached] it broke apart into 20 or more of these little spheres ... birds don’t dive-bomb in at each other."
