Posted: 2/5/2003
Location: Ottawa (Canada), ON
Shape: Light
Duration:about 2 hours
2 Bright lights over Ottawa,Ont.

It was around 2am (est) and we were out offroading when we stoped to look at the stars, since it was a clear night, and we seen this bright orange light hovering over us. at first we thought it was a planet or something but then it started to move up and down and side to side(it didnt move like a airplane at all). after watching it for awhile we seen light (greenish colour light) come from the woods in front of us. it was still over us hovering. after awhile watching this thing we seen another bigger and brighter white light to the left of us this one moved in the same way as the first one but it moved alot faster but it also hovered over us for awhile we watched the big white light get smaller and smaller as it got father away from us we are guessing that we spent around 2 hours watching these things in the sky

((NUFORC Note: Our first suspicion is that the witnesses may have been looking at celestial bodies, but that is only a guess. We suspect that a UFO would probably not hover over Ottawa for two hours, and we receive only one report about the incident. That is only a supposition, however. PD))
