The UFO Phenomenon

New documentary explores 'town with the most UFO sightings in the world'

The small town of Bonnybridge in Scotland has become synonymous with sightings of unidentified flying objects.
Since the 1990s, the town, which is situated around 4 miles west of Falkirk, has seen a disproportionately large number of UFO sightings and nobody can explain why.

The earliest sighting was reported in 1992 by local businessman James Walker who had been driving between Falkirk and Bonnybridge when he was stopped by a mysterious, luminous star-shaped object that was hovering in the middle of the road.

The encounter ended when the object flew off at "incredible speed".

In the months and years that followed, hundreds of UFO sightings were reported in the region, including accounts of alien abductions and people being 'buzzed' by strange objects in their cars.

Even now, decades later, people are still seeing things in the skies over the area.
Back in January, a short documentary - The Bonnybridge Files: The Town With The Most UFO Sightings In The World - was released which explores the phenomenon in some detail.

It features an interview with local councillor Billy Buchanan who has spent years petitioning the government to conduct a proper investigation into the mystery.

"Since this first happened in 1992, I have went down to London to every Prime Minister that's been in since that period of time, asking them to do an investigation into the Bonnybridge phenomena," he said.

"When the Scottish Parliament was set up, I went to the Scottish Parliament the same and asked them to investigate what was happening in the Bonnybridge area."

The full documentary is available to watch below.

Naaaaaaaah, that's amply wrong. Every nerdy amateur in UFOlogy and UFO sightings knows that Toronto, Canada owns the world record of the highest number of unexplained UFO sightings in the entire globe. UFO sightings has been reported in the region by the local Iroquoian natives for over a millennia! They even have an old tale or two about them. Local Ontarian newspaper media covered these same sightings in matter since when the city used to be named York, back to the early 1900s. This is so frequent that is is said that the sightings may happens in full daylight and almost on a daily basis!!

THIS!!! Is a cloud. Bonnybridge isn't far from me so I imagine he said it exactly like it sounds in my head (like Tim the Enchanter).
