Police called out over Toronto UFO sightings

Several people witnessed a series of strange lights in the skies over the Canadian city this week.
36-year-old Sarah Chun had been sitting at her dining room table on Saturday when she noticed a series of strange blinking lights aligned diagonally in the sky above the city.

Grabbing her iPad to film them she headed outside only to observe another bright white light in the sky overhead.

"It was really high up, and was round, bright, and shining," she said.

"At first I thought it was stars or something, but it was too bright to be. I didnít know what it was." The object seemed to hover in place for around 25 minutes before flying off and disappearing.

Chun's sighting was followed by numerous other reports from people across Toronto who had also witnessed something unusual in the sky on the same night. The sightings were so widespread in fact that police officers were called in to investigate.

"Somebody did see something in the sky, but what it was we donít know," said Sgt. Barry White. "[Officers] were stopping to talk to people, and we did hear from others on the street that apparently there was something up there."

Agreed. It is very unusual, the thing is kind of pulsating at some point and it does not look like your typical plane. Look at the lights when it pans away from the UFO and towards the city. Plenty of the other non-UFO lights are flickering in the same way which makes me think the flickering is some sort of artefact and not an inherent property of whatever the light is.

The one overhead doesn't move. Probably a planet or star.

It was the diagonal line of lights that led her outside, and those look, to me, like balloons. Probably advertising balloons. Like this one... The one high up in the sky I don't have a good guess. But it did not move in the video like was said. It could be that a cloud moved across it. My guess would be Venus....

What's the point of calling the police over a UFO sighting? You think the police have the ability to fly all the way up there to investigate it? Actually a police officer tweeted that was seeing a ufo , "his first." Initially he thought to be a drone but then changes his view tweeting about a ufo Here's more to the story

Based on what appears on the video, we see a straight line of lights pointing up at the left and following the direction of that line we are lead to the point of flashing light at the top left. This suggests an LED kite with LEDs also mounted to the lower section of the line. The advertising balloon showed by DieChecker is a good guess, but to the best of my knowledge these are not outfitted with LEDs and are taken down at night. In fact, I am pretty sure the car dealerships are not allowed to leave them up unattended during the night.

This was reported by Charles Lamoureux, a Canadian amateur astronomer and videographer. You can see a bright spot moving at high speed across the sky. Lamoureux is a hoaxer. Just look at the other clips (e.g.orbs, chemtrails) on his YT channel and you know where he is coming from. He also created the so called "Orb Tracker 1" (hahaha!), thatís a semi-professional hexacopter with on-board cam. For this "project" he opened a PayPal donation account on his YT channel and it seems that there were enough morons who funded him this equipment as there are some clips of the hexacopter on the channel, ...

There are other videos taken that same night and I found this one particularly revealing because it shows the LED kite go into its programmed multi-lights pattern at the beginning of the clip: Now compare the above to this display of LED kites at a kite festival:

You can follow the lights right down to the ground in front of the buildings.

You can follow the lights right down to the ground in front of the buildings. Yeah, I count at least 5 lights. 4 in the sky and another two in front of the building. Most assuredly not a ufo.
