The sighting reportedly occurred at 8:44 p.m. over the area of Cypress Provincial Park in North Vancouver. And, as the website Unknown Country explains, Lamoureux was able to record the UFO with three different cameras.

The witness referenced the website Heavens Above to eliminate the possibility that that UFO was simply a satellite. Lamoureux uploaded his video to YouTube, and, in the video’s description, he explains, “I must have seen over a dozen in a hour descend exact same area, some flashing, faster, but this one was so bright for sure there were more witnesses.”

Although he is willing to entertain the idea that the UFO was a satellite, Lamoureux believes that it would have to be “a spy unknown or space junk but it was really moving way too slow at the onset.”

    Hi, I observed the same type of objects…. at least half a dozen in this case, over Orleans Ontario last night at 7:00 PM EST. (Mar 2, 2014). I managed to get a couple of pictures using a still with 16x zoom lense. I took about 20 pictures but most were blurs or streaks because of the slow shutter speed. I got 3 that actually show the globular shape. They were very bright and orange/red colour.

    These are either some very strange, totally silent, craft or possibly some kind of projection…. ie. very large laser beam. It’s a little curious because they seem to come from the direction of the Ottawa Airport which is probably 30km away.

    I can e-mail you the pics if you like……use my email to respond.

    I’ve seen videos like these debunked, and they have been airplanes. It makes me sceptical that he claims to have seen a dozen in the same spot. Airplanes look like very bright dots at night and it can be hard to tell what direction they are going in. Also he is saying some of them were blinking… Set up a camera and see if all the bright dots follow the same path.
