Residents in the area of Roseland Avenue near Gage Park in east Hamilton, Ontario were stunned to see a number of UFOs on July 16, 2011 at around 9 p.m.
Three girls who were riding outside were the first to spot three strange lights in the evening sky. Molly Mitchison, a Grade 5 student at Adelaide Hoodless Elementary School pointed to the objects above Simon Reynolds’ house.
The 11-year-old attends the same school where my grandchildren used to go. It is approximately 12 blocks away from my home. Gage Park is about 20 blocks away.
Molly did not think the UFOs were anything important but noted that they looked like spaceships adding that when one of them “came really close… it was like red but it had yellow lights all over it.”
She said it appeared to hover and made no sound. To see a picture Molly drew, go HERE.
The girls alerted Reynolds, who was stunned by what he witnessed.
“It’s the most extraordinary thing I’ve experienced,” he told the Hamilton Spectator.
Reynolds, 42, who is a television and movie actor, as well as a car salesman added, “This was a total shock… I don’t know what they were. I know there is nothing I’ve seen on Earth that can explain what they were.”
He added that what he saw were not planes because they made no noise.
“The whole casing of the ship was the light. This wasn’t a projection in the sky. This was an actual solid thing. They were like suns.”
He filmed the objects, which he described as “red fireballs” using his iPhone for several minutes. He said they appeared to be a few hundred feet high above his home and moving northward.
Reynolds, who has played roles in Saw IV, Street Legal and more, was so fascinated with the bright lights that he and his wife, along with the three young girls jumped in his car and attempted to follow them as they moved toward Lake Ontario. However, they lost them when they arrived at the Queen Elizabeth Way highway.
And since that night, Reynolds said he could not help looking skyward just in case he sees them again.
