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!!!
I see these light often. If they are flares there are no ships on the water around them OR planes in the sky. Typically in the northwest sky. The strangest thing last week----they popped up in the northwest sky and were still there at 7:00 in the morning. They were out all night. Prior to this I ALWAYS saw them in the same location. The local weathermen have no clue..........

July 3 2011- 4 of us something in the sky over Sodus Pt, on the central north coast of Lake Ontario. Approached from the northwest looking like the lit end of a cigarette orange and glowing. It grew larger and came closer. It continued in a southwestern route traveling slower than a plane or anything any of us had seen before (we're in our 60s). It.suddenly changed route heading south
picked up speed & disappeared into the sky heading out directly - til it was a pinpoint and gone.

I've been living on the south shore of Lake Ontario in Somerset for ten years now. My husband and I see this flame, and have, periodically, for all of the time living here. Usually on Thursday nights, but right now it's Tuesday, March 26 at 8:55 PM and we've been watching it go on and off for the past 45 minutes. It "hangs" over the lake and goes out. It never varies in location. It's always in the exact same spot, since we have our telescope focused on it. This summer we listened to the CG scanner and some campers at Golden Hill SP evidently became alarmed enough to call the authorities. We saw the CG boat headed east toward the spot, and then we heard the CG call it off, something about Canadians and maneuvers. So we watch in wonder, as we do tonight.
