      Looks like a UFO to me.  I have always been a believer that we are not alone in the universe.  I also saw that a space station captured some unusual footage this month.  Great to see the truth in the headlines for a change.

        The media does often seem super eager to dismiss sightings as anything BUT extraterrestrial.

      I'm unable to click the link, Beth. Maybe you could repost it as a comment to my answer? Thank you.

      Intriguing. I accept the explanation offered with the Mexico incident and meteor activity, however I love my reservations. I guess it is the will to believe of UFO's, however I have even more reservations as to their cause or place of origin. I have not 'always' accepted the outer space or planetary alien concepts. I prefer to think of them as outer space or planetary 'relatives' said with a giggle + giggle. Other questions come to mind such as why do they have to be aliens? What if we are the aliens?

        There's truth in that, tsmog - though I do believe we are not the only planet with intelligent life. Yet we shouldn't forget that UFO merely stands for unidentified object.

        I agree with both observations. I still have suspicions with thoughts we may be transplanted in a sense. Still infants maybe as an encompassing civilization. Thus the concept of Star Treks transporter. Who says that is  not a natural state unexplored

      Interesting. It looks like a genuine object (as opposed to a hoax or a reflection). I can think of two possibilities. Firstly at the speed it appears to be travelling could it be sunlight shining off an airforce jet? Not sure. Planes such as that are obviously quite common in our skies, though it doesn't seem quite right. Secondly it could be a fireball - a large meteor burning up. Those events are rarer, but can look very much like the object in this video.

      But either of these two possibilities are far more likely than the idea of an alien space ship!!! No one has ever provided any authentic provable evidence of alien visitations, and there's no reason to go for such fanciful explanations when there are far more rational explanations which fit the bill.

      My guess is that since it is Canada and probably cold up in the sky, it is something like part of the clouds or ice/snow from the clouds leaving a trail of flakes, or hail, behind.
