Report compiles 25 years of Canadian UFOs

A UFO research group has documented every reported sighting over the last quarter of a century.
Canada is well known for being a UFO hotspot and this week a group called Ufology Research has completed work on an extensive new study compiling together all the reports of undentified objects over the country in the last 25 years.

In total more than 15,000 objects have been reported since the group first started to collect data back in 1989 and most of them have had no definitive explanation.

"Coincidentally, this almost exactly matches the total number of UFO reports collected and analysed by the United States Air Force Project Blue Book during its official run of less than 20 years from 1952 to 1970," the group wrote on its blog.

According to the study, sightings were more common in the evening after 10pm and occured most frequently over cities such as Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver. There were even 467 cases that allegedly involved sightings of extraterrestrial entities.

"Regardless of one’s belief in the 'reality' of UFOs (however that may be construed), studies such as ours affirm that there is a persistent phenomenon that deserves further scientific study," said group research co-ordinator Chris Rutkowski.

Canadian witness says ‘massive UFO’ near Fort Erie cloaked itself Posted by: Roger Marsh August 14, 2014 6 Comments 12,112 Views An Ontario, Canada, witness at Fort Erie reported watching a “massive-sized triangle UFO” that appeared to cloak itself before moving away beginning about 10:10 p.m. on August 13, 2014, according to testimony in Case 58918 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

Researchers of the Canadian Ufology Research Of Manitoba such as Chris Rutkowski are doing a heck of a job compiling the data, whether or not we 'consider' them to be any kind natural or in some cases extraterrestrial phenomenon. And the man simply can't be dismissed on his credential, with his background in astronomy, former president of the Winnipeg Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, science writing and as a Public Information Officer for the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg. I've said it before, I'll say it again. If there was ever a real UFO over a city like Toronto there ... [More]

Definitely a labour of love compiling that research! I think some sightings are attributable to top secret aircraft testing. Canada, with vast expanses of wilderness and areas of sparse population make it perfect for it. As an impartial observer I have to say, there are just as many that are truly unexplained....

If one were to count the amount of ufo sightings since it was first reported im sure the number would be in millions. You can laugh when someone tells you they've seen a ufo, but when there are millions of people who have reported seeing ufos you simply cannot ignore it. Sure some of the cases have been misidentfied, but have they ALL been misdentified? Well it's highly improbable. In probability, out of millions of the cases, atleast ONE of them have to be a legitimate case, and really all it takes is one real ufo sighting to prove that we're not alone. Why is it so faking hard to understand?... [More]
