Another witness recounted the UFO sighting that happened last Saturday. According to resident Sebastian Setien, he was entertaining guests on Saturday afternoon when he noticed the strange object.

Setien further revealed that he and his friends saw the bright lights when they stepped out on the balcony to have beer at night time. "I have no idea what it is. It could be a very unique weather satellite, weather drone, weather detecting instrument, or - who knows," the witness stated.

In the Toronto Sun report, witness Roxanna Maleki posted a video on Facebook describing the bright objects to be really strange and they do not appear to be an airplane.
