You are here: And So It Begins.... Ontario UFOs 2002 Ontario UFO Sighting Reports Ottawa ON UFO Report

" Right now I'm still, quite excited, as today I saw a HUGE flying saucer(this is exactly what it looked like) right over downtown Ottawa today at approximately 2:00pm. I assure you I'm not even joking(and would never fabricate a sighting). I was visiting a friend at a hospital in Hull (Gatineau now), Quebec for the afternoon today. He went back to his room, to get changed because we were going to go outside for awhile. So I stayed in the smoking room, with a man that I had talked to a few times before. This smoking room has a panoramic window view of downtown Ottawa, and the hospital is located close to the Ottawa River(cross the street, enter a park and you're there). Anyway, I was sitting there, watching tv, when all of a sudden the man said something to the effect of "what the hell is that flying over there?" I look expecting a kite or something, but it was this massive saucer! It seemed like at first it was hiding in a lower cloud (the sky was cloudy), the it moved towards completely revealing it's self. My view was very clear and amazing. Right there, over downtown Ottawa, was this huge craft! It's colour was dark grey metallic, it's shape was round. It's just, you know, the sort of thing I always read about in UFO sightings. You could call it a classic flying saucer. The sighting lasted for about 30 seconds, when the object disappeared out of view due to part of the hospital blocking the way. It's size was a little bigger than an airliner, there weren't any lights that I saw. I noticed when I last seen it, it was going either north or northwest. It couldn't have been much over 400 ft. above the skyscrapers of downtown Ottawa! This thing had to have been seen by at least .......a lot of people. I'd be VERY surprised if you don't here more about this sighting form other people."
Thank you to the witness for this report - currently under investigation.
