(Newser) – Pilots in eastern Canada have been warned to look out for one of the strangest hazards they're ever likely to encounter—a 70-foot brewery blimp shaped like a hockey goal light. The Budweiser balloon broke from its tether at a ball hockey tournament in New Brunswick over the weekend and has been spotted floating at up to 5,000 feet, reports the CBC. Transport Canada says pilots in the area have been notified and the blimp is expected to come down in the southern part of the province, but it's not clear when, the Globe and Mail reports.
