Some interesting Niagara Falls hotel lobby video footage has recently surfaced that has an interesting UFO sighting back story.

Skip to description of possible alien encounter
Skip to Men in Black / possible alien video

First there were the UFO sightings

The story starts with two UFO sightings reports that were made by two employees at a Niagara Falls hotel. They claim to have seen a large, silent triangle UFO that hovered over the Niagara Falls, and then slowly moved away. The UFO sightings occurred on two occasions, 14 Oct 2008 and the second about two weeks later.

continued below map...

In fact, a UFO report was picked up in the local newspaper,
Niagara This Week, on Nov 07, 2008:

    (Witness) said it was about 10:30 p.m. on Oct. 14 when he was working at one of the hotels overlooking the falls.

    "My security officer came out at some point," said (witness). "He was looking out over the river and said either someone went into the river and they were looking for them or that's a UFO.

    "I've never seen a bright light like that," said (witness). "It wasn't pointing down, it was pointing right at us."

    (Witness) said just before the object got to the falls area it dimmed out a little, and that if it had continued on the same path it would have gone directly over top of him.

    "When it was over the river it seemed closer and lower," said (witness). "It seemed to be 50 to 75 feet over the hotel."

    (Witness) said as the object approached the hotel it seemed to slow down and it was directly over top of him. He said it was big, black and triangular with a big light on the front and a pulsating red light, akin to a heartbeat, underneath.

    (Witness) said that during that time of night there wasn't a lot of traffic or street noise and that you could have heard a pin drop. He said the object didn't make one sound.

A great, detailed UFO report. Was it the media report that caught the interest of aliens?

Or was the second sighting, a week later, a factor?

In the second sighting, the same witness happened to be outside at 1 am, and saw another triangle UFO. This one was higher and travelled over the Niagara River, west to east, until it was out of sight.

It is possible (but not confirmed) that the media report f34d205cc07ad5e25ee4d4fe3ed295b8above is the same sighting that was investigated in detail by the API team - a group that investigates unexplained aerial phenomena.

Men in Black come looking for
UFO witness

The API team did an excellent job in detailing the two sightings. They also obtained the original hotel surveillance tape that shows the two men in black later visiting the hotel. Very strangely however, they did not make note of the date of the visit itself.

Hotel staff say that these two very strange looking men in black came looking for the hotel manager and asking about the UFO sightings. We don't have details on exactly what was asked. However, as it happened the hotel manager was out at the time, so there were two staff members that talked to the men in black.

In asking for the manager, there were several things that disturbed the staff greatly. The hotel manager describes the details in his recollection of the events. Those recollections are dubbed over a loop of the original hotel lobby video footage.

Below the video I've summarized what made staff think they were dealing with a real alien or at least something, very, very strange.

Is this a possible grey alien video?

Was this an alien encounter?

The manager reports that two staff members came to him about these strange men in black asking for him.

The bellman described them as:

  • odd looking

  • really, really tall

  • identical height

  • wearing exact same clothes

  • exact same faces, like they were twins

  • wearing same outfit: black suits, black trench coats and old-fashioned fedora hats

  • had extremely pale skin

  • "they freaked my out"

The next day, the tour guide reported that they:

  • said strange things she didn't understand

  • talked about government and conspiracies - none of it made any sense

  • were very, very scary, because they

    • had no facial hair - no eyebrows, no eyelashes

    • their hair looked like a wig that was attached to the hat

    • eyes were very big, very blue, almost hypnotizing

    • did not blink, even once

    • seemed to know what she was thinking

  • Although she couldn't describe how she sensed that they knew what she was thinking, she was frightened enough to feel that she needed to think about something else.

Take another look at the video:

What do you think of this strange tale?

Could the men in black have been the tall grey aliens that are reported from time to time?

Gee thanks
by: Anonymous

After seeing a few UFOs over the last 8 years, all different but all in the same place over Quebec, Canada, and after reading this site now I am checking my lobby cam in my apartment building more than usual. lol. Just kidding.

Wow, I can't imagine turning it on one day and seeing what the cam in Niagara Falls caught of two men all in black walking into my building. lol. It's a nervous 'lol'. Gulp.

I also think, as some posters do it seems, like many sightings are actually our government test runs of new technology in aircraft.

In fact my first sighting, and the most dramatic, I do think was an experimental military craft.

There were 2 huge orange orbs - one appeared out of nowhere under the other one I first saw, quite low on the horizon but well above the treeline, and while they were both sitting there one on top of the other, without any kind of sound or warning they shot an orange beam each down to the ground across the river in Quebec and both my friend and I saw that and heard the 'booms' when the beams hit the ground.

I reported this to a local TV station. The sighting was at 7:30 pm pm on a nice summer evening on a scenic tourist drive, still light out and NO REPORT THE NEXT DAY IN THE MEDIA.

Now THAT'S a cover-up. No way could I have been the only one seeing it. NO WAY. Anywho after the beams happened the lower orb descended behind the trees and I don't remember what happened to the other one but they appeared in a flash - they didn't travel to that spot so they were obviously stealth. No sounds came from them at all.

I reported it to MUFON and got the usual 'thanks for reporting'. Dats it. Frustrating to say the least. I think though they were new stealth helicopters, silent. Haven't seen them since.

I live here
by: Junior

Thats one thing i did not see was the "triangle". The things I saw in 2008\2009 were:

A. What seemed like a copy gone bad. Call me pathetic for comparing a movie, but my mother gf and i were on our porch. My mother pointed out an odd jet in the sky maybe 150 ft above our heads off in the distance. As it slowly got closer, it appeared to be an absolute silent jet passing us very low, slow and quite. The oddest part was it was nose directly up, ass end down, silent, slow.. Seemed like a drunk transformer. LOL.

B. Was very strange. But if you've ever been to Niagara Falls, you would understand the sheer size of this "craft". Now the first night, I'll admit me and my friends were partying. We were standing in front of my apt building, and my buddy said bro look up. When I looked up a saw a white gas/metallic thing quite a ways up, or close but small it was hard to see.. I'd say the size of an average city neighborhood block. It almost seemed like a cloud until our Clifton Hill spot lights would hit it. That's when it would seem metallic cause the light bounced back off at us.

A few nights later, after there was talk of it being a hoax, my god, I almost shit my pants. I walked from Buckley Ave up Morrison, and over to Tim Hortons on Victoria (in case people want to have good ol details on google lol).

As I came out with a coffee, on my quick walk back me and a friend noticed everyone saying omg look up etc etc. When we looked up we noticed a rainbow of colors, again gas'ish but metalic. It was similar to the white one I saw, but easily stretched from me to Marineland Pkwy, following the river. My uncle was near Clifton at the time, and he swore he saw this thing "sucking water" from around the falls.

I remember it seemed to bring me a calm feeling, absolutely beautiful. Each color was in different size and shape,and it was what seem to fill our sky, and you think you'd remember fear, but I don't think anyone was scared.

The black triangles are probably human tech. They have been seen Worldwide for many years. I saw one on 2 consecutive nights by pure chance. I was outside at exactly the right time. A triangle flew over my house at just above tree level, very slowly, absolutely no sound, no correct Navigation lights (red and green) but one front tip yellow light and two side tip white lights, flashing in sequence....No Sound what so ever. I have a Time Life book from the 1990s on UFOs, it mentions MIBs back then, exactly as these people. It is a shame there is not a video of them at the desk or walking out. But going by the way they walk, to me, they are human, and of our Earth gravity. They walk perfectly correct for a human. I o believe they are a Govt agency, they are trained to be intimidating, to be menacing, possibly wear a mask or makeup to hide identity, without being ridiculously obvious. Probably a wig and contact lenses. Yes they know the MIB legend, and are just perpetuating it, Because of the very fact that it intimidates and scares people...Believe in "Aliens" because the true is EVEN scarier. I have always advocated that there may be other inhabitants on Earth, either subterranean or deep in the seas. But I would think logical and believe they are human agents, flying/investigating human sighting of human tech. Imagine the shock to the Petrochemical industry Worldwide, if the Govts released info to a power source that is clean silent, low poluting and cheap.......... Still, further investigation is prudent.

Eat us? Yikes
by: Anonymous

One of the posters here commented that aliens are here to eat us and that so many people go missing every year never to be seen again and it reminded me of something I saw on TV way back in the 60ties I think it was. Ya ya I'm old, so? lol.

Anywho, there was a show some of you might know called The Twilight Zone - it was one of the first real forays into Sci Fi, to me anyways. So one of the episodes had to do with just that subject that one of the posters here talks about. Aliens come to earth and they present themselves as a real helpful, friendly race and welcome people on board, can't remember all the scenarios in the episode but that's the main idea.

So, about 2 minutes before the end of the show they have a scene with people going up into the alien craft and it flashes to a sign in the ship that says 'Human Menu', or something to that effect. They were in fact sucking in humans and then eating them. I wonder if we taste like chicken? lol. Let me tell you - that image lingered. I saw it way back then and I still remember it - quite the concept and quite the fright.

Just had to share that and besides you know what they say, if you make a joke of it it isn't half as scary. Ya right. lol. Nanoo nanoo. (Mork and Mindy show - yougins, look it up, lol)

probably true
by: Anonymous

I, like one of the posters here, have given up trying to get people to realize that these things are in fact true, UFOs, aliens, MIB the whole bunch of it.

I myself have had at least 8 sightings of various UFOs (one I had a friend who witnessed it too) but honestly I am not reporting anymore because no one investigates this area where I saw them all (UFOs I mean), reported it all to MUFON and other than the obligatory 'Thanks for reporting' that was it.

I spoke with a couple of people in the UFO field (Mufon people mostly) but I think they must have not taken me seriously because never heard from them again.

I reported one huge sighting to media here too and surprise surprise not one news story about it locally and it was a stunning event that happened on a beautiful summer night at only 7:30pm in prime tourist season here nad no one else saw it but me and a friend? no way.

There is a blackout on these reportings duh. You can't fight it.

The MIB did look like Nordics to me too but doesn't matter we have no power over them so what will be will be.

Our government knows - come on think about it. I would love to know the truth but not sure the full truth ever be known.

Lately I had a few odd computer issues with some personal documents stolen right after a run in with UFO enthusiasts in a UFO chatroom - hmmm.

Had a few other 'coincidences' occur not long after as well. The other night I had a bug on my balcony - looked like a massive bumblebee that was flying erratically, Sure wish I had a picture of that thing but googled insects and UFOs and up comes a site on insect drones and man one sure looked like what was flying around my balcony.

I'm not saying it was a drone, just probably a big honkin' bumblebee even though I have not a single flower on the balcony but hey just sayin'. Then I thought about it 'yikes, now there is an invasion of personal space - they have mosquito drones (look it up).

Sure that fly on your wall is a real fly? lol. Not paranoid, at least not yet. lol. Nanoo nanoo. Frustrating once you see a UFO or 10 and no one believes you. Their secrets are safe, they know we humans don't believe each other. Frustrating.

I live here
by: Junior Maraldo

I can still recall those few encounters between 2008-2009-2010. As if it were yesterday. There was a LOT of reported and un-reported activity. I witnessed quite a bit. As for this being a "publicity stunt"... I live here.

Only found out about the MIB contact recently while watching Unveiled (almost 8 years after). If i can say one thing about what happened in those years, it was slightly frightening. It was extremely overwhelming.

And what happened in the skies was and is still completely unexplainable. I honestly don't think we have the technology to create what I've seen.

Anyone looking for information on those sighting feel free to look me up. It seems everyone but me has forgotten about these sightings.

From their physical characteristics, these MIBs seem to match that of the Nordic type alien. Bright large blue eyes, very tall, slender, and fair skinned. Of course that describes a few of my friends as well, but just saying.

they are
by: Michael Lourens Ludick

These MIB are extra-terrestrial beings working with secret part of the Goverment. They ARE real, they ARE secret and they ARE rare. When these so called MIB approaches infront of your door step make sure you do not tell them the truth, record them and keep an eye out...

Publicity stunt. Taking advantage of a nearby news blip to grab the attention of the media and hopefully increase hotel guests.

Cruithneach is right
by: Anonymous

I gave up trying to convince others..It becomes obvious that we (the ones who "KNOW") are no match for the "ONES" (we know about)and they will go to extreme measures to keep us from revealing our awareness to others...In fact "THEY" are actually responsible for why "WE" know. And if "WE" have proof, they are punished for allowing it by other more menacing entities.

Lizard aliens
by: Cruithneach

The Hmmm anonymous comment is by far the most intelligent. We are being played for suckers.
These MIBs trying to "suppress" talk about these events just amplify the situation.
there is a deception going on. Jacques Vallee caught on, and so did anyone else with half a brain.
Trying to protect us? Get real, they are eating us and hundreds if not thousands go missing every year.
Tall whites,Greys and all that childish baloney as if your taking a walk in a Zoo when your the ones in the cages, its all one ancient source trust me, and only a few get it.
Everyone has been told but most people are too preoccupied with their own ideas to hear the truth. Until you can hush the monkey the truth is drowned out.

Skeleton-like? Too pixellated to tell
by: Anonymous

Have gone through the video in the episode. Someone else said the first figure looks skeletal, maybe even with horns. Any close images have pixel block-colours too strong to identify much. I am sorry, but I cannot personally agree that we can use the video material for their faces very well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2odb2676XY0 I do find the story very interesting, though: the sightings, the strange questions and outfits. If these are related things, then it could also be "government" men in black, i.e., not non-human, or not full alien types (if such things are real at all), but human agents, even though it is not our "governments" in the ordinary democratic sense, which are doing such things. They are rogue projects, outside of ordinary political oversight, if they're going on. I'm not saying these "people" are people, or that aliens do or don't exist. Just that the images here are not enough to tell much from, except to confirm the basic dress and fact of such visitors to the hotel.

Shadows / MiB figures
by: OASIS Founder

This is something that I have extensively studied, and looked into on various parallels across the world. The black fedora shadow figure is not something that is specific to one country nor is it based on any specific folklore or urban legend. In fact, many people (especially children) have seen these beings while they were young - and even continue to see them later in life. Most people that experience this "phenomenon" and I use that term very loosely, do not come forward with their experiences in fear of personal safety and social standing. Every 1 person that comes forward, accounts for about 1 in 1000 or so unspoken experiences.

There is a very dark and sinister story behind these beings, and the only reason they appear with human characteristics is so we can associate them to a being that belongs amongst the populous. They have been seen in every culture, at every stage of human advancement. They have been recorded ever since writings and records have been kept - therefore it is also safe to say that they predate those records. Their forms have changed, but not their actions or intentions.

The same fedora hat being, and the "men in black (MiB)" are one in the same. There is no difference between the two other than how and when they present themselves. Both seeking suppression of the truth , through fear and oppression to those that they visit. They are searching, for evidence that the time is at hand, and they are searching for a higher knowledge than they themselves possess. This is also why there is no records which can be found of these individuals. The real "boogyman" was first conceived from this same experience - which later was adopted into many various forms and creatures in hollywood.

They have no good intent, and are self seeking.

No doubt about it, these were "Tall Whites". Dressed in clothes the TW can very easily pass as humans. Tall whites only do things if they have a benificial interest. Its how they work. One must wounder why they would travel so far. There is a whole race living at area 51. Youtube Tall Whites.

i have seen the UFO
by: Anonymous

While working on In the Clifton Hill Area I was outside when a coworker told me to look up there was a dim light behind some clouds but when the PizzaPizza spot light met there was a bright refection. I saw this happen around the Men In Black sighting. I saw it at least twice. I have not seen the light in a long time but the spotlights were moved.

We saw it too
by: Anonymous

We see this craft on a continuos basis. We text our family and friends when it's out so they can look at it too. It was just out this past summer...June 2014. We have pics but it is so far up its hard to see much of anything but the same configuration of lights. Sometimes it hides behind the guise of the clouds. There are videos on YouTube that people have posted of the same thing we see. People have called 911 reporting it because they are scared and don't know who else to call. So you would think those calls would have been documented.

Aug 18, 2014
by: Anonymous

These were the "Tall Whites". They wore wigs to cover their blond hair. They look very similar to our own race which is why they've taking such an interest towards us. Some think that they help create humans. However they really had no part. They like us are looking for answers in there role of existence. They're extremely fascinated that we've both evolved so identically! I've might have said too much.

So these guys in black turn up looking sub par human asking about gov conspiracies etc after ufo sightings. Which just confirms the sightings more so.
A new alien species is not stupid enough to draw attention to themselves, unless they wanted that attention period
Either it's the government or the aliens, but Laurel and Hardy turning up to ask questions is not the act of a super intelligent species, unless that's what they wanted.

The Greys
by: Anonymous

I agree with Mr. Batch. The greys are far more prevalent in our world than most people realise. The question is...are they trying to protect us?, or is there a deeper quest that is attempting to destroy us and implement their own species.

Possible Hybrids
by: Murray Batch

It is possible that these men in black are hybrid creations made by and working for the greys. The current knowledge now is that the " Dark Silent Triangle " is piloted by the "Greys". Information gathered from witness sightings and in some cases abductions point to an active program of making human/alien hybrids. We can speculate that this program is meant to create hybrids that look human enough to interact in our society here on the surface but retain a certain amount of alien DNA. Information gained from sightings and abductions suggest there are multiple variants of the Greys that specialize in different tasks. It's not a stretch to suggest they create different hybrids for different tasks also.
