Canadians reported nearly 2,000 sightings of unidentified flying objects last year, setting a new record a national survey found. The annual Canadian UFO Survey found that Canadians reported seeing 1,981 UFOs in 2012, nearly doubling the previous record of 1,004 that was set in 2008.
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. Chris Rutkowski, a civilian science writer who has produced the Canadian UFO survey since 1989, has just finished compiling all of 2012 reports. “It’s something across the board,” said Rutkowski. “People in Canada were actually looking up into the sky more than in previous years.”
“Only about 7.5 per cent of the cases last year ended up being unexplained. Oddly enough, only about 15 per cent were completely explained, so it's really a matter of intense investigation. There's a lot of work that needs to be done before we can put reports like this into bed,” said Rutkowski.
Elmira, Ont. — Two witnesses saw two dark objects “shaped like guitar picks” moving silently overhead at an estimated 61 metres high, heading east.
Shoal Harbour, N.L. — Four people saw a disc-shaped, glowing orange object flying west to east across the sky, then stop suddenly in mid-flight. After about 10 seconds, it resumed its flight and went out of sight.
