2016 Canadian UFO Survey shows sightings still at record levels
April 16th, 2017 by James Wray
The 2016 Canadian UFO Survey was released at the end of last month and reports that there were 1,131 UFO sighting reports in Canada last year.
Astronomer Chris Rutkowski of Ufology Research based in Manitoba compiled the reports and said around a fifth of the reports had likely explanations and most of the rest did not have enough information to be classified either way. Only four percent were classified as unexplained and only 1.5% as explained.
Rutkowski is very keen to point out that the group are just looking into the reports, not making any judgements on aliens or otherwise.
He said “Some people claim that they’ve seen some aliens associated with them but we don’t have any proof of that.”
The reports were collected from a variety of sources including government agencies, UFO groups and direct to Ufology itself.
They ranged from “10 orange lights grouped together, disappeared and reappeared before disappearing completely” through to “zigzagging white dot, making a sharp turn” and had varying degrees of evidence supplied.
