    Enjoy your Montreal blog..as per the explanation to the light in the sky..it is the reflection of the city lights on the clouds…this occurs especially when we have a low cloud ceiling..so no to aliens

    The UFO that flew over Cavendish mall a few months ago changed location? :)

    Could be overnight construction lights. Or lighting from a movie shoot. Those would be my first two guesses.

    SUBJ: IPS DAILY SOLAR AND GEOPHYSICAL REPORT
    ISSUED AT 04/2330Z AUGUST 2011 BY IPS RADIO AND SPACE SERVICES
    FROM THE AUSTRALIAN SPACE FORECAST CENTRE
    SUMMARY FOR 04 AUGUST AND FORECAST FOR 05 AUGUST – 07 AUGUST
    STATUS INDICATORS SOL:** RED ** MAG:** RED ** ION: ** YELLOW **

    Flares Max Fadeout Freq. Sectors
    M9.3 0357UT probable lower E. Asia/Aust.

    Observed 10.7 cm flux/Equivalent Sunspot Number for 04 Aug: 116/68

    Activity Moderate to high Moderate to high Very low
    Fadeouts Probable Probable None expected

    COMMENT: Subsequent to activity over recent days, active region
    1261 produced an M9 level flare peaking at 04/0358UT from N19W36.
    The Culgoora Radiospectrograph observed a strong Type III event
    and Type IV event in association with this flare. LASCO C3 imagery
    showed a front-side asymmetric full-halo CME with estimated
    propagation
    velocity of 1450 km/s. This event is likely to be geoeffective
    and solar wind shocks from the flare sequence over the previous
    three days may be cumulative. The ACE satellite platform observed
    a weak solar wind shock at 04/2130UT. Solar wind velocities increased
    from 350 to 425 km/s. The IMF Bz trended southward to -10nT.
    This is possibly a CME passage from the M6 level flare observed
    at 03/1340UT. AR1261 declined slightly over the previous 12 hours.
    AR1263 showed some magnetic reconfiguration. Both regions maintain
    potential for further major flare activity. Significant disturbance
    in solar wind parameters is anticipated 05-06 Aug.

    ACE EPAM data indicates an energetic ion enhancement event beginning
    04/1150UT, which can be a precursor to increased geomagnetic
    activity over next 24-36 hours.

    etc. etc.

    Hey Steve,

    I live on the corner of Fort and Tupper in a highrise. On the 17 floor. When the clouds dip down over the mountain the street lights from below reflect up. it is especially cool when light from the opposite side of the mountain reflect on clouds above it.

    It happens quite often lately. Living up so high we see this phenomena quite often between 4 and 6 am. Sunrise usually happens close to 5 am.

    Hmmm. 1/3 second @ ƒ4.0 (looks like a kit lens) at ISO 1600 (yup, definitely a kit lens).

    Did it appear suddenly? It could just be light pollution from downtown.

    Yup, definitely HAM yagi antennæ. And an orthodox cross… :)

    Without knowing where the picture was taken from it’s hard to say for sure, but… I suspect what you’re looking at is the sky directly above the IBM Building on Rene-Levesque. That sucker’s got some big lamps on it, all of them pointing skyward.
