The whole article:
“A mysterious object was sighted last night over the Royal Canadian Air Force base at nearby St. Hubert. Reports today said it also hovered for several minutes over a playing field in Montreal’s North End.

Claude Mercier said he and about 10 of his neighbors saw the object hovering over a park area at the intersection of De Fleurinont and Garnier streets.

‘It looked like a big round balloon, about 10 feet in diameter, with a yellow light inside,’ said Mercier in an interview. ‘Fiery sparks came from the underside of the object as it hovered over the field.

‘It was very low and it appeared as though it was going to land. But after hanging in the air a few minutes it took off, rising not vertically but at a slant and at a terrific speed. Within two or three minutes we had lost sight of it on the horizon.’

As it rose, he said, the yellow light inside the balloon seemed to go off.

He said the sighting was made about 8 p.m., approximately at the same time as people in the suburbs of the South Shore opposite Montreal were reporting a mysterious red light over the RCAF base.”
