A Quebec family has been seeing strange lights in the sky for three years, and QMI Agency also observed the phenomenon this month.
At 6 p.m. on Jan. 9, a QMI reporter saw six moving lights over a wooded area in the Laurentians region an hour northeast of Montreal.
The objects appeared at the horizon and tracked across the sky, one after another, less than a minute apart.
They came from the west and moved eastward in total silence.
QMI observed 10 mysterious objects in less than 45 minutes.
The light show happened not far from the home of local businessman Benoit Meilleur, who recalls spotting the light display for the first time in 2011.
He says he doesn't believe in aliens and insisted QMI record the phenomenon before he agreed to have his interview published.
The businessman says he was returning home one night when he saw a triangular object moving very slowly near his house.
"At first I thought it was a plane," he said. "It was so low and so slow that I could have hit it with a golf ball."
He called the Canadian Armed Forces.
"They told me they didn't detect anything," said Meilleur.
He also contacted NORAD and Quebec provincial police, but made little headway.
"They even asked me if I was feeling alright," said the businessman.
Meilleur's 18-year-old son Samuel says the lights tend to appear between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. every night.
Contacted by QMI, National Defence said it's not aware of the phenomenon.
