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.

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.
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.
