Circling Blue/Green Light Above South Ottawa Ontario (Searchlight)

Date:  October 17, 2012
Time:  Approx: 2:00 a.m.

I am watching a circling blue light right now above my house in south Ottawa. It is bluish green in colour and takes about 12 seconds to do a circle (almost perfect) going very fast.

No appearance of a beam going up, looks like a light shining down through the clouds. I am sure there is an explanation, but it does look odd.

Maybe a light beam from the airport which is not far to my south. It looks similar to what you describe.

Additional Information:
A person wrote into the Vike Factor with the explanation as to what the lights were. Below is their report.

I also saw these lights in the south end, they were see-able in the south on Highway 31/bank near the Hindu temple. Also when I went to the Wal-Mart
they were clear in the dark night sky.

It was a spot-light that was geographically near the South Keys Wal-Mart, because the light beams were clear and bright. I still couldn't pin-point the origin of these lights, but it seemed to be closer to this location than any other.

There was 1 or 2 spot lights that were swirling in the sky in circular patterns.

If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential.

Also, please feel free to send in your sightings that have happened years ago. So many of these older sightings are nothing short of amazing.

  1. I believe these are the spot lights the airport occasionally uses to help planes find the airport. I've lived in the south end my whole life and every so often they use them.

    Unrelated, lately someone has been sending one Chinese lantern into the sky almost nightly which usually tracks north to south. You can tell it is a lantern even from far away. However last night I spotted a distant light which wasn't a lantern or plane. It lit up quickly and continued moving out of sight.
