NBC News reported this week that Mary and Tony Quigley, the witnesses, spotted something in the sky soon after Christmas Day 2012. Other people also reportedly saw a purported UFO over the eastern Canada province.
Local meteorologists stressed that what the Quigleys saw was not a weather balloon. They said that when the video was taken, it was too late in the day for it to be a weather balloon.
The object also appeared to have produced a contrail and was likely a jet, the meteorologists said.
Late last month, a UFO was spotted over the mountains near Vancouver, British Columbia.
CTV reported on a survey noting that UFO sightings have surged across Canada in 2012. The broadcaster noted that there were 2,000 sightings, setting a new record.
