LONDONER'S UFO A GLOW LOW DOWN
It could be passed off as a bad luck, Friday the 13th omen, but many Londoner's reported the same "phobia" late Friday.
For a 20 minute period around 10:30 p.m. police were flooded with calls about a bright red glow in the southern sky.
"It looked like a ball of fire and then I got my field glasses and it looked like a bright red glow," said Charles McCormick of 91 Woodward Avenue.
He said a neighbor tipped him off about the object, which looked the size of a small airplane. "You could see it easy with the naked eye. It was 'down low' and moving slowly back and forth."
An air traffic controller at Lodon Airport said he saw nothing in the sky.
"I called Toronto and they said there was nothing in the area," he said.
