A military and passenger flights spotted a UFO that "flew into a cloud, then disappeared" in Canada, a new report says.
The "bright green flying object" was seen by a Canadian military jet and a KLM Royal Dutch Airlines flight.
An aviation incident report released on Wednesday said the sighting happened on a stretch of open water between Quebec and Newfoundland on July 30.
It said both flights “reported seeing a bright green flying object” that “flew into a cloud, then disappeared”.
The KLM passenger flight (KLM618) was travelling from Boston to Amsterdam while the Canadian military transport aircraft (CFC4003) was flying between CFB Trenton, a base in Ontario, and Cologne, Germany.
The Canadian military plane may have been travelling to Europe as part of a mission to bring Afghan personnel to Canada.
Data posted to Twitter by aviation and shipping researcher Steffan Watkins suggests the Canadian flight even changed course and altitude at the time of the sighting, which might actually have occurred on July 31.
The aviation report appeared in CADORS, the Canadian government’s flight incident archive, and made few other details available, VICE reports.

The CADORS digital database was recently found to contain dozens of UFO reports from airlines such as Air Canada, Porter, and WestJet.
Reports in June revealed how Canadian military personnel have been reporting UFOs for decades.
In contrast with the US government's interest in UFOs, a spokesperson from Canada's Department of National Defence said: “We do not track reports or collect information about sightings” of UFOs.

The Canadian military and KLM airlines did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the July 30 UFO report.
Meanwhile, British military bosses have refused to rule out the existence of extraterrestrials.
The Ministry of Defence admitted it had been receiving reports of UFO sightings for more than 50 years.

But the Government said that because none of them posed a threat to UK security it had “no opinion on the existence of extraterrestrials”.
One senior defence source said last night he believed the Government was worried about commenting on alien life.
He said: “The MoD can’t deny the existence of UFOs because there are reports coming in every week, so it tries to fudge the issue by saying that no UFOs have posed a military threat.

“It’s interesting that it doesn’t mention anything about UFOs which don’t represent a threat.”
Details of the Government position was revealed in a Freedom of Information request.
An MoD spokesman said: “While I note your interest in Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, you may wish to be aware that the MoD has no opinion on the existence of extraterrestrials.
“This is because, in over 50 years, no UFO sighting reported to the department has indicated the existence of any military threat to the UK.”
