The weather office here has been flooded with calls from persons who say they
have seen fast-moving lights high in the heavens.
The sightings of what officials call
UFOs (unidentified flying objects) have been reported during the last three
days from as far away as Leamington, 40 miles southeast of here, to
Amherstburg, 15 miles south, as well as in neighboring Michigan state. Most
persons say their sightings have been around 9:15 p.m. A weather office
spokesman said today that weather balloons are sometimes released at about 6
p.m. but they do not carry lights and could not be seen after dusk.
