To whom it may concern, The following events occured on Sunday the 15th of September, 2002.

We (my husband, myself and our two children) were on our way home from our country place near Huntington, QC to our home in Montreal. As we were driving down the road just outside of Mercier I saw what appeared to be really bright stars in the distance. After a few minutes I asked my husband " Are those airplanes up ahead, or really bright stars?" Considering that tonight was overcast and no other stars were visible in the sky he resopnded that they were probably helicopters looking for pot fields.

After about 5 minutes the two lights ahead in the sky changed posistion. The one that was higher up, and to the right remained in the same place, but the lower one to the left began to move westward at a fast pace. Now we were very curious as it was moving far too quickly to be a helicopter. Our 8 year old son who was in the back seat pointed out another one to the right of our vehicle visible from the passenger side. ( the other one was still immobile in front of us) While we were stopped at a light ( around 8 pm) the one on the passenger side slowly flew over head. I unrolled my window and stuck my head out for a better view...what I saw gave me shivers...this was no plane or helicopter. The object was triangular with lights at all three corners.

I have seen thousand of airplane and helicopters at night, and never have I ever seen light formations such as these on an aircraft, nor have I ever seen an aircraft first be stationary in the sky then move quickly such as these. We saw them for about 10 - 15 minutes, and there were about 5 different craft in the sky at the time...all of this same type though we only saw two of them fly directly overhead. My husband, son and myself all saw the distinct triangle...and my husband swears he could see the sky through the center of the triangle. This object appeared to be larger than a 747, and flying quite low for us to see it's shape so clearly. There was not a star in the sky as it was over cast.

After we crossed the Mercier bridge and passed the Dorval airport we saw many other airplanes ...some flying directly overhead...and I did not see anything that looked like this triangular object. ( Not to our surprize as I had previously mentioned it moved like no other aircraft we had ever seen.) Our son said it might be a stealth bomber..which I refute due to the fact that it was much larger than the stealth...much more triangular, had lights and as far as I know Stealths do not remain stationary in the air.

Surely someone else has seen these lights...when we were stopped at the lights there were many other cars around, but noone seemed to be gazing at the sky.....

Once we got home my husband and myself decided to do a little investigation on the internet, apparently there have been a few sightings in Quebec along the St. Laurence river ( one even in the exact area we were in ) most involving triangular, or chevron shaped anomalies in the sky.

Is the Canadian government testing any aircraft ( at night ) that would fit this description? Or are they as I fear ( I'm a big chicken) U.F.O's? In the hopes from getting feed back from people who have seen these aircraft, or at the very least know more about U.F.O's than we do, we are posting this account on pertinent web sites, and sending it out to some local enthusiasts.
