Duration:6 minutes

On June 20, 2013 I was sitting on my couch watching television in my apartment.

I face the Ottawa River not too far from Mud Island on the Ontario side. My eye was caught by something in the dark night's sky across the river over Quebec. I looked towards the object and it seemed to be a large orange object just hovering over the edge of the land just past Mud Island but across the river in Quebec.

I watched the object (not sure if it was a circle or what but appeared so) and to my total shock all of a sudden an identical orange object, same size and shape, appeared very close to the first object. It didn't fly there, it just appeared, as if it had turned on a light or just appeared out of nowhere. I couldn't believe my eyes. The 2 objects stayed in the same place. About 10 seconds later I was stunned to witness a 3rd object, same size as the other 2, same color and shape appear next to the other 2 - same distance apart.

At that point I ran across the hall to get my neihgbour. I was gone only maybe 1 minute but when I got back with her to show her the 3 objects 2 of them were gone and the 3rd one (the first I saw in the sky) was descending straight down towards the ground.

Unfortunately there were clouds down low so the object went behind the cloud so I couldn't see how far down it went or if the other 2 were there as well - behind the clouds.

My neighbour did witness the last half of the last object descend so she did see one as well.

As we stood there, not more than 15 seconds after the last object descended, we were stunned to witness something hitting the ground just off to the left of where the 3 objects once sat in the sky. It appeared that perhaps these shots being fired might well have been coming out of the 3 objects in the sky. The shots were fired downwards towards the earth on the Quebec side, not up at the sky and when each shot hit the ground (you could see light trails coming down from where the craft were) there was a loud explosion and corresponding flare-up of light. We must have witnessed at least a dozen of these shots hitting the ground.

There was no sound from any of the craft while they were forming in the sky and no sound except for when the shots hit the ground -no sound of them being fired that I remember hearing.

My neighbour and I waited to see if the craft would fly away but there was no sighting after the shots were fired at all. They just disappeared or left undetected.

I haven't heard of anyone else who saw what we did. I called a local tv station and reported it and they said that they would look into it but I never heard back.

Someone must have seen it besides me. There are many dwellings on the Ottawa side of the Ottawa River near Mud Island. Would be interested in hearing about any other similar sighting. I noticed that in Quebec orange balls have been seen before Interesting.

The room we viewed the craft from and the explosions was a typical apartment living room with one light on in the background. It was getting dark at night when I saw all of this but there was still a bit of light out but not much. It was around 8 PM in the evening.

I couldn't tell clearly if the objects were round or what but the startling thing was that they were quite big even from the distance across the river and they were a bright orange color. Quite different from craft that we normally see.

I have not seen this again since that night.
