April 2014 began with a variety of sightings in the sky over Ontario including a bright light over Kingston, a round red object over Brampton and a possible cigar-shaped craft over Port Hope.
A light described as “brighter than Venus” was seen over Kingston, Ontario in the early morning of April 3, 2014. According to a Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) report, the circular light was seen hovering and then moving on a straight path at approximately 5:40 a.m.
The witness stated that that the object was seen toward the west and was totally silent. After watching for about two minutes, “it began to move” southeasterly.
“I worked in aviation for 6 years and am familiar with flight patterns of both rotary and fixed wing aircraft,” he noted. “At first I thought an aircraft with landing lights, but as the object started to move (southeast), the lights did not change as they would have if forward facing landing lights were the source. It was NOT a rotary wing craft as that would have been easily heard in the still morning air.”
The witness added that the object continued along the southeast course and then “faded from view.”
On April 6 at approximately 9:25 p.m., four people spotted a “round red object” in clear night sky over Brampton. According to a UFO Info report, the object was round with what looked like four pods on it. The witnesses noticed that it was “motionless at first but then started moving east in slow fashion.” It then accelerated “at a very high speed then come to a dead stop and reverse travel instantly.” The witnesses also saw lights on the craft that “appeared to brighten the faster it went.”

A “brightly lit” cigar-shaped object was seen for about three minutes on April 9, 2014 at approximately 8:35 p.m. over Port Hope. According to a National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) report, Cathy Carlyle and her husband, Patrick Gray, were driving along Lakeshore Road when she saw the object “hovering near Lake.”
At first she thought it might be a star or a planet but “quickly realized that it was far too large and long, and bright for it to be that kind of object.” She then thought it might be a plane but realized that it was not moving.
“We couldn’t tell if the thing was out over Lake Ontario or just over the land,” she said adding, “We both commented on how big the item was – far larger than any plane we’d ever seen near Port Hope.”
Along the way, the couple stopped driving twice to get a better look and Carlyle thought “the lights looked yellow,” while Gray believed they were “yellowy-white.” After only a few minutes she wrote, “Suddenly it vanished – in a split second.”
Although she and her husband were not sure of its shape, the woman noted that if seen from a side view, “we would say it was cigar shaped.”
