Subject: [canufo] Pilots See UFO Over Ontario
I received info on a UFO seen over Ontario yesterday afternoon
(a daylight sighting) by several pilots.
Date: 28 April 2003
A pilot flying between Buffalo and London reported seeing a
"very large stationary metallic object beside the Moon, at a
high altitude." The pilot was flying at 43,000 feet and said the
object was "much higher." He watched it for at least 30 minutes.
ATC at Pearson [International in Toronto] noted that several
other pilots reported the same object.
Doing a check on star charts for that time and date, it turns
out that good old Venus was within a few degrees of the Moon
right at that time, high in the sky. Normally inconspicuous,
it's likely that Venus was noticed because of its brightness and
position so close to the Moon at the time, even in the middle of
Cosmic salutations to you all,
Nobody in particular
