As aliens and UFOs grabbed headlines in the U.S. last week, it’s worth noting Mississauga residents have spotted their fair share of unidentified objects.

Last week, at a U.S. Congressional House committee, former military intelligence officer David Grusch alleged that government officials have retrieved non-human “biologics” from alien crafts, according to several news reports on the hearing.

While there have been reports in the past, this was the first time the House Oversight Committee has held a hearing on the subject.

There is still much unknown about these claims and no physical evidence has been presented, but UFO or Unidentified Flying Object (also known as UAPs — unidentified anomalous phenomena) sightings have long been reported across Canada.

The last Canadian UFO Survey, from the Manitoba-based Ufology Research, posted online was for 2020 and published in 2021. That document lists 10 UFO sighting over Mississauga.

The 2020 Mississauga reports include two lights moving quickly; a “personal photographer to extraterrestrials” who has many photos of aliens; “multiple bright lights flying around”; and “11 lights following each other in [the] sky”.

Some of the phenomena were attributed to satellites and possibly mentally unwell folks. Other reports such as a “circular light with red lights inside” that stayed in the sky for three hours on April 2, 2020, may not be as easily dismissed.

In addition to several reports over the years from Ufology Research, there has been video and photographic evidence appearing on social media.

In August 2021, a video was posted on YouTube featuring a strange-looking object hovering in the sky in what was claimed to be Mississauga. But a short time later, that object was identified as a “Mr. Peanut” balloon.

Last June, a fast, spinning glowing light was captured over Lake Ontario. But many people thought it might have been a Chinese lantern.

Recording UFO sightings began in the post-Second World War era in the United States and Canada, according to the Canadian Encyclopedia.

The main concern at that time was advanced Soviet technology but reports soon moved into extraterrestrial sightings.

The Canadian government investigated unidentified flying objects with several departments and agencies collecting sighting reports from 1950 to 1995.
