There is intelligent life out there!

The proof lies the fact UFOs are alleged to have visited Orangeville, Schomberg and Aurora last year.

The 2017 Canadian UFO Survey, released by Ufology Research, collects data from investigators and researchers in Canada, trying to understand the UFO phenomenon.

The 2017 report marks the 29th year of collecting and analyzing Canadian UFO report data by Ufology Research.

There were 1,101 UFO sightings reported in Canada in 2017, more than three per day. This is the fifth year in a row that UFO reports in Canada are at or above this level.

Quebec had an all-time record high number of UFOs reported in 2017, with 518 reports, up from 430 cases in 2016.

In comparison, Ontario had 241 reports, BC had 128, and both New Brunswick and Nova Scotia had 27 cases each. There were even two reports from Northwest Territories and three from Yukon.

In 2017, about eight per cent of all UFO reports were judged unexplained. This percentage of “unknowns” falls to less than one per cent when only higher-quality cases are considered.

There is an overall average of two witnesses per UFO sighting.

The typical UFO sighting lasted approximately 15 minutes in 2017. The study found that 43 per cent of all UFO sightings were of simple lights in the sky.

Witnesses also reported point sources of light, spheres and boomerangs.

In Schomberg on Sept. 16, 2017 at 7:30 p.m., two people noticed three columns of two lights, each dancing around. They flew overhead. A photo and video were taken of the event. The person who reviewed the case deemed there to be a possible natural explanation for the case.  The case comes from the MUFON organization.

On March 25 at 3:15 a.m. one person in Aurora reported waking up in the sitting position, and saw a stationary object and then it vanished.

In Orangeville on March 28 at 9:20 p.m. someone reported seeing a “shadowy number 8” moving slowly northwest to east, “like a wormhole.”

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. Many witnesses are pilots, police and other individuals with reasonably good observing capabilities and good judgment.

Numbers of reported UFO sightings remain high. Several theories for this can be suggested:

More UFOs are present and physically observable by witnesses; more secret or classified military exercises and overflights are occurring over populated areas; more people are unaware of the nature of conventional or natural objects in the sky; more people are taking the time to observe their surroundings; more people are able to report their sightings with easier access to the Internet and portable technology; or even that the downturn in the economy is leading to an increased desire by some people to look skyward for assistance.

Although the largest percentage of reported UFOs is simply lights in the night sky, a small number are objects with definite shapes observed within the witnesses’ frame of reference.

Popular opinion to the contrary, there is no incontrovertible evidence that some UFO cases involve extraterrestrial contact. The continued reporting of UFOs by the public and the yearly increase in numbers of UFO reports suggests a need for further examination of the phenomenon by social, medical and/or physical scientists.
