Monday, July 28, 2014, 8:40 PM - Social media lit up Saturday evening when a series of colourful lights were spotted over Toronto in the Yonge Street and Sheppard Avenue area.

Toronto police were inundated with calls about the mysterious UFO and confirmed receiving calls about the blinking pink, green and white lights, which were spotted hovering in a diagonal line formation.

There are a few theories circulating about what the UFO could be.

Some argue it could be a drone, while others suspect the lights could be flying lanterns that mark the end of Ramadan.

But the origin could be more low-tech than all of that.

Alejandro, who did not give his last name, told CTV he saw a few kids setting up a kite with lights attached to it earlier in the evening.

"After it got dark, a couple of hours later, I notice a line of lights," he said in an email. "[It] looked like a very potent laser pointing vertical to the sky, but it was the kite these people were preparing."
