UFO Sightings In Canada Break Record
UFO sightings in Canada almost doubled in 2012, breaking a record that had been set four years prior.
This is good news for E.T. enthusiasts who read the Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena (Assap) report, which claimed that Ufology would be dead in ten years for lack of sightings. But it’s bad news for those who thought the likelihood of getting abducted and probed was increasingly unlikely.
People wonder if the increase of sightings in Canada is at all correlated to the decrease seen in the U.S. Perhaps the intergalactic travelers have collected everything they need from the American people?
In 2008, for example, Canadians reported 1,004 sightings which established a record for that time. Four years later, that total jumped to 1,981, the increase stretching across every province in the country. So, it wasn’t like one alien-obsessed town got together to talk up the phenomenon to raise public awareness or drive local tourism.
A variety of spaceships have been spotted in the last year, from “triangles and balls of fire, to the more traditionally ovoid-shaped flying saucers, hovering in the sky.” There have even been others that are shaped like guitar picks. So, maybe aliens received our transmissions of Jimi Hendrix, after all.
The sightings have been made by people of all walks of life and ages. Adam Canning, a ten-year old from Lake Charlotte, Nova Scotia, reported seeing a giant orb strapped with a gun and that had a giant light sticking out from the top of its dome. He said:
“I heard this, beep, beep, beep. I knew something was in the sky. I looked up and there was a big thing…
There’s normally helicopters flying over our house but that was way bigger than a helicopter, so I knew it wasn’t a helicopter…
There was this one little thing sticking out from the front, it looked like a little gun or something, and there were these two things sticking out of the bottom, it looked like legs or something. There were these little round lights around the whole thing and at the top, there was one big light.”
So despite Assap’s claim that UFO cases were down 96% since 1988, it seems the Canada is a new hub for extraterrestrial activity.
