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."

Eventually Hynek's last judgement was interdimensional hypothesis 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. THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF PHILIP J. KLASS To ufologists who publicly criticize me, ... or who even think unkind thoughts about me in private, I do hereby leave and bequeath: THE UFO CURSE: No matter how long you live, you will never know any more about UFOs than you know today. You will never know any more about what UFOs ... [More]

Yup 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?

The sooner you start, the better *grabs popcorn* I can't. Ask the ones that say they can. By UFO I assume you mean alien space craft. That is not really what the term means. It quite literally means unidentified flying object. Something in the sky that was not immediately identified. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. Some of you seem to really struggle with the concept.
