Location: Quebec (Canada), QC
Shape: Sphere
Duration:2 hours
Big orange spheres over Quebec City.

Friday 17th - 21h45 I'm at home. Looking through the patio door of my appartment. I notice a big orange sphere above Quebec City. At first, I thought that it might be a plane but I notice that the light doesn't move. It began to move slowly to the east and finally disappeared.

I did not bother at first, thinking that it was a plane. But two minutes later, the same object showed up at a different place in the sky. The light emitted from the sphere was very, very bright.

It looked like a very bright fire orb. It was also acting like fire (light intensity going high and low).

From this point, this had taken my curiosity. Being a UFO enthousiast myself, I needed to record evidence. I've seen exactly the same objects 2 times in my life, years ago.

2 minutes later, my DSLR camera was set on the tripod in front of the patio door, ready to take long exposure pictures of the object. The lens used was a Canon 75-300mm at full zoom.

From 21h45 to 23h45/midnight, sightings occured every 4 or 5 minutes. I've managed to take many pictures and even recorded a simple video of one of the objects with a point and shoot camera.

At one point, 4 objects showed up at the same time, all were going in the same direction (east). They disappeared with no particular order.

Saturday July 18th - 21h50 to midnight Exactly the same thing as Friday 17th. Repeated sightings of the same objects.

On Monday, I bought a VHS camera in order to record footage of the UFOs if they reappear one day. Unfortunately, nothing showed up since.

Not planes - Objects were stationary and they could move back and forth Not helicopters - I saw an helicopter passing by and it did not left the same trail as the UFOs. Plus, the helicopters had blinking lights and the helicopter didn't. The light was so bright, could not be an helicopter.

Not fireflies : the objects could hide behind the Frontenac Castle.

I'd also like to add that I posted this report on a car enthousiast message board and a guy saw the same thing from the north shore of the city at the same time.
