UFO Sightings in Canada Increase More Than 100%

UFO sightings in Canada are at an all-time high, according to Canadian sky-gazers.

The annual report from Ufology Research documented 1,981 UFO sightings in Canada in 2012, more than double 2011's record 986.

UFO sightings are on the rise in Canada, according to the Ufology Research Institute.
While 822 (40%) of Canada's UFOs were spotted in Ontario, every province save Saskatchewan and P.E.I. reported mysterious lights or objects in the sky.

“More than half of all UFO sightings were of simple lights in the sky,” the survey states. “Witnesses also reported point sources of light, spheres and boomerangs. Although the largest percentage of reported UFOs is simply lights in the night sky, a small number are objects with definite shapes observed within the witnesses’ frame of reference.”

Officials with Ufology Research say the survey was compiled using many sources, including UFO reporting websites, UFO organizations, civilian investigators, official sources such as Transport Canada and police, and witnesses’ own reports to the research group.

Here are two of the survey's many interesting UFO sightings that were reported.
On Feb. 10, 2012, around 7:15 p.m., the survey notes a couple driving on a road in an isolated part of the city were shocked to encounter a black, flat, octagonal object with flashing lights. After they drove directly underneath it, it moved across a field and away from them.

Fifteen days later, at about the same time, the report states two witnesses observed a flat, disc-shaped object with red lights around its perimeter.

“As it flew in horizontal flight, it turned on its side and then darted towards the witnesses’ vehicle, then vanished before their eyes when it was within five metres of them,” the report states.
Among its theories: "More secret or classified military exercises and overflights are occurring over populated areas; more people are unaware of the nature of conventional or natural objects in the sky; more people are taking the time to observe their surroundings; more people are able to report their sightings with easier access to the Internet and portable technology; or even that the downturn in the economy is leading to an increased desire by some people to look skyward for assistance."
