There was a law passed that the air force and cost gard are allowed to do drills over lake Ontario. What you saw were drills that lead heat seeking missles away from an aircraft by dropping flaming flares.

On Tuesday October 28th, 2008 around 9:00 I saw the "ball of fire" over the lake. It is in the Northwest sky and is suspended over the water. It pops up and appears to have smoke coming out of the top of it. I have seen it numerous times in the past two years. But I NEVER see any aircraft in the area. One time a second one appeared below the first one. They are alway in the same place on the horizon. It appears, hovers without moving and gradually disappears. It continues to show up and go away for a few hours. It is bright fiery red in color and I am amazed that more people do not notice it when it reveals itself. I called a local meterologist the first time I saw it and he speculated it was a "superior
mirage." I think it is pretty wild..........

hey,

my friend has reported seeing this fireball on lake ontario. we are on the north end of the lake, but she claims (as well as others whom were there) saw the fireball rise up out of the water, grow in size and then break up into three other fireballs which disappeared into the sky.

I live in middleport and can see them on the horizon quite frequently. Honestly they freak me out a little bit as i have seen as many as 6 in a horizontal line. They come and go almost as if they were lights turning on and off. I would love a legitimate explaination to this!

19 October 2010, 11:00 - 11:30 PM. I'm looking southwaet across the Lake from Wellington Ontario. Two fireballs visible, bright orange, flickering light (yep like a fire), stationary. One fases while th other grows in intensity. I'm guessing 1,000 ft above Lake level. Very weird.

12:45 am 10/21/10- Yup! See them too, but from Southern Jefferson County New York. Maybe flares from Ft Drum or searching for that Canadian man that went overboard? Totally Creepy!'n

They are military (Canadian) flares. They are used to brighten the sky over the lake to practice night manuvers. They burn hot and bright because they are loaded with phosphorus. Many canisters of these flares have been spotted on the shore of Lake Ontario but it is says to never touch them and to call the bomb squad to take them and detonate them safely.

I feel much better knowing the are harmless so far away!!!
