A Winnipeg based UFO research group has collated statistics for sightings over Canada in 2013.
The country's status as a UFO hotspot doesn't seem set to change any time soon with an average of three reported sightings per day and a total of almost 1,200 reports last year.

The figures are the second highest ever recorded, beaten only by 2012's record-breaking total of nearly 2,000 reports. Ontario came out on top as home to 40% of sightings while British Colombia came in second with 25%. The average duration of a sighting across the country averaged out at around 13 minutes.

"Results of this study show that many people continue to report unusual objects in the sky, and some of these objects do not have obvious explanations," the group stated. "Many witnesses are pilots, police and other individuals with reasonably good observing capabilities and good judgment."

No it was not, he remained as confused as anyone and added IDH as another avenue of investigation after working with Jacques Vallee, who came up with and supports the IDH. It's Phil Klass's curse at work.

How do you figure one option he entertained out of many was his "final conclusion"? What do you figure he contributed to the IDH other than some ambiguous statements of support for Vallee?
