A Canadian witness at Hamilton, Ontario, reported watching a cylinder-shaped object moving across the sky at 500 feet, according to testimony in Case 85204 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The event occurred at 9:43 p.m. on July 16, 2017.
“The object went from southwest to southeast and made no noise,” the witness stated. “My daughter said it was probably a Chinese lantern floating but it was going from east to west and the wind always comes up from the States from the southeast. It would have turned the object in the direction of the wind if it were a Chinese lantern. One blow up picture I included shows a donut shape and you could see the sky through it at times.”
The object was moving close to ground level.
“It travelled about maybe 500 feet above ground and had no flashing lights like a plane. It had a metallic, cone-shaped top and what looked like a glass cylinder center and what looked like two metallic tubes under the object as TV cable and then a telephone cable.”
Canadian MUFON Field Investigator Angelina Palmisano closed this case as an Unknown – Other.
Hamilton is a port city in the Canadian province of Ontario, population 536,917.
