More Canadians say they are seeing unidentified flying objects than ever before, with 2012 numbers nearly doubling the record number of sightings
recorded in previous years.
In 2012, there were 1,981 sightings, nearly doubling the previous annual record of 1,004 sightings recorded in 2008. There were record numbers of UFOs
reported in every province last year except for Saskatchewan and P.E.I.
Keep on recording those UFOs my fellow Canadians!
I'm sure this increase in reports and sightings is largely due to more people having smartphones and small cameras on their person most of the day,
being able to record anything in an instant and more people being interested in the subject. UFOs have been a hot topic in the past years in movies
and reality television shows like UFO Hunters, getting people interested in the subject and probably encouraging them to try their luck at the night
sky with their cameras.
According to the article
nearly 2000 UFOs were
reported with 7.5% being unexplained and 15% completely explained... 7.5% unexplained is still a pretty big number of cases unsolved.
The Canadian government no longer investigates UFOs
and directs all UFO sightings to Chris Rutkowski of Ufology Research of Manitoba, who releases the Canadian UFO Surveys.
Here are the Canadian UFO Survey Data Tables
and other information if you're interested!
Say ATS, have you ever had a sighting?
