An anual report from Canada's Ufology Research Institute has revealed that sightings are on the increase.

Toronto Sun said:

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.

Hmmmm..  I note the following..

1. It's quite difficult to track back to where this information originated - why do these articles not quote their sources??  I ended up here:
http://www.canadianu.../2012essay.html
and I would have to observe that site is most notable for broken/missing links and rather naff looking webpages (ASCII 'renderings' of UFOs? - how droll..), than anything looking like genuine research or decent statistical analysis.

And hasn't anyone told these guys that IF THE PAGES AREN'T READY, don't put links to them!!!


2. That page starts off with the rather damning words:

Quote

Since 1989, Ufology Research (formerly Ufology Research of Manitoba) has solicited UFO case data from known and active investigators and researchers in Canada.
In other words, they are going out and getting this data from whatever old and NEW sources they can,. with no attempt whatsoever to normalise the data, and discuss issues like how the data collection actually works, how many staff have been involved, how many UFO 'contractors/agencies/etc' were approached, how those agencies had been promoting themselves, how many reports may have been copycats, how many ufo programs had been on tv in the region, etc...

About the only interesting 'fact' they reported was that unexplained ufos had dropped from 11% to 7.5%.
Hang on..  why are the explained ones still being counted as Unidentified Flying Objects, then?  Another Unexplained Mystery. :D

Anyway, that is very good news!  If that trend continues, there will be no unexplained cases at all by 2014..  Well done, Canada!

So the Canadians have just found out about you tube?

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Those are just the documented sightings.

I wonder if aliens are gearing up for an attack on America's Hat in retaliation for unleashing Justin Bieber on the planet.

I've always wondered what the aliens are thinking when they decide to show up, they're problably like" look! They're waving small devises in the air" maybe they do want attention

I still can't believe that an extraterestrial UFO would have the technogy to make sure we couldn't see it.  Obviously they aren't showing on radar.  Oh, yeah - all of theose reports have been buried.

Maybe,... I was waiting for them to help us with the Hannah Montana problem back in 2006.

I still await the compelling Exhibit A.
