My friends and i, as we were skating the streets of quã©bec city during the night of august 1st to august 2nd saw a ufo hovering over the middle of the saint-laurence river at approximately 4 am. the object was small and appear to be shaped like a star although it was way too low above the water to be a star. white light was coming out of the object and we all stared at it for 20 minutes when it disappeared to leave only a small dot of smoke. it reappeared 5 minutes later. arthur and i as we were staring at it, saw squared like shapes of blue and purple emanate from the object for brief seconds. we were the only one of our group to experience this. arthur mentioned seeing 3 smaller objects flying out of the first one, and going in 3 different directions. we all tried to take a picture and record this sighting, but as it was dark outside, the light of the object if not appearing on the camera. we all left as the ufo was still hovering over the river as the sun started to rise.
