Bright Orange Lights Over Lake Ontario Seen From Pulaski New York

Date:  First week of November 2011
Time:  Evening.
Hello. I saw your post on Google, after searching for "bright orange lights lake Ontario". My boyfriend lives along the shore of lake Ontario on the very eastern edge, near Pulaski, New York and the mouth of the Salmon River. The first week of November 2011 ( we are not sure if it was the 3rd, 4th, or 5th) we saw a very bright orange light directly west.
At first we thought it might b the moon, but I disregarded that immediately as it was not as big and in the wrong direction. Maybe a planet? But again in the wrong direction. I used the star walk application on my phone to see if it was a star, yet there were few and none very bright in that location.
The light stayed hovering above the water for 30 minutes, then descended. After returning from our walk, the light was back, we viewed it through binoculars. We saw that it was 2 orange lights. Too far above the water to b a boat, too low to be an aircraft, too steady too be a flare.
The second sighting of orange lights went into the water after about 20-30 minutes. My boyfriend thought that he saw smoke or steam when they hit the water. He has seen these same lights too a lesser extent 3 or 4 times, but this time they were alot more prominent.
According to his neighbor, he has been seeing them since the 1970's, though he isn't very reliable. 
We are both very skeptical in regards to UFO's, but this was an unknown flying object. Known to someone maybe, but not to us. My boyfriend tells me that he believes there is a military zone in the middle of lake Ontario, so it could have been a drone, or perhaps a bomb of some sort yet it was absolutely silent as you said in your post.

I am writing so that you know you were not the only one to see them. We saw them way down on the eastern end as well. If you get any information about what they were please let me know and I will do the same! I'm glad to have found someone to share this very odd/unique experience with. Thank you.
If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential. website:


  1. I live in North Greece, NY about 2 miles from the Lake ONtario shoreline. I have regularly seen this lights North of me over the lake- no explanation! I just saw them again this past week (I believe it was Nov 7th or so, 2012).
    Would LOVE an explanation.

  2. I live in Hilton, NY right on lake Ontario. I have also seen the light over the 14 years that I have lived here and then again on March 6, 2012 at 7:10PM
    We live directly south of the South shore shipping channel marker which is 1.15 miles off shore This gives us a good reference location to spot from. The light always appears to behind the marker by some distance. I have looked at the light with my spotting scope and can never see anything around it, just the orange glow. I also have never heard a plane or helicopter while the light is in the air. Which you would think that would hear if it was a military drill. Nor does it drift with the prevailing wind at the time?

  3. I live in Lagoon City, ON on Lake Simcoe. I saw a bright orange-yellow light on Friday, October 11, 2013 around 9:30 p.m. It was moving steadily in a south-west direction, heading towards Lake Simcoe. I did not watch to see where it went. There was absolutely no sound. To the naked eye it had a diameter of 5 inches.
