"Just googled weird orange light over Toronto to try to figure out what the hell I just saw tonight (3:30am). Came across your post from 2 years ago and thought I'd write. It was crazy, I followed them home along the QEW Niagara (they were above the lake) then when I exited in Grimsby I went to the lake and watched as it went across the lake w/ a weird smoke trail, disappeared, reappeared, disappeared, then it or another one reappeared way down the lake. Too strange and I would love to know wtf they were!"
Our thanks to the witness for this report and photo.

ufo details report: Re: Orange Ball of Light over Lake OntarioI was driving along QEW Niagara bound just before 50 Rd around 2:55am and noticed a ball of light. I made my way to the lake to take a closer look but by the time i got there the light had disappeared. 2 minutes later a helicopter with a search light came swooping down very low across the lake obviously looking for something. It sounded like there were more helicopters in the distance. Now that i see this was going on for at least another hour past the time i saw, my thought is that this is a way to light up the lake in an area to allow the searchers to see better? I haven't been able to see any report anywhere that mentions the need for a search though.It was very interesting to see though!
Another witness writes:
"I saw the same orange light over Grimsby at 3.55am looking directly across the lake from Bronte Harbour. It was an extraordinarily bright light which lit up the entire sky, created a "yellow brick road" across the lake and seemed to be made up of three/four different light sources clustered together. I too saw it grow large, almost disappear and then reappear and then at 4am it suddenly instantly disappeared! I thought I might hear something on the news this morning as it was so bright it must have seemed light daylight in Grimsby but I didn't hear anything although this morning around 9.30am there was a plane just over the lake by Grimsby flying in a search pattern looking for something!! I too would love to know what I saw as it was like nothing I've seen before,,,,,, and what was that plane looking for?"
Another witness has come forward:
"My wife and I witnessed a large orange ball flying over Lake Ontario when I was driving on the QEW Niagara bound around 2:30 am on Saturday September the 6th 2014. We were almost approaching the town of St Catherine's when my wife noticed the object flying with a lot of smoke trailing behind it. It was a very bright orange light which we got on film and some pictures we'd like to share with you."
