More than 1,000 UFO sightings in Canada in 2016: Report

A light-fingered alien stole one man’s hat and sunglasses.
Another man reported he found himself in bathtub in a field “surrounded by three green, big-eyed humanoid creatures who communicated with him telepathically.”
Break out the tinfoil hats, the annual UFO report has landed.
The 2016 Canadian UFO Survey — produced by Winnipeg-based Ufology Research — was released this week. In total, there were 1,131 sightings of unidentified flying objects reported across Canada last year.
Study author Chris Rutkowski said for the first time in the 28 years the study has been conducted, just 4% of the sightings could not be explained.
He said the record-low is likely the result of more careful scrutiny of raw report information available.
In addition to the usual claims by astro-nuts, there was at least one legitimate unexplained encounter with the unknown.
There was also the commercial airplane over Toronto that had a near miss with an object while on a routine flight Nov. 14.
“The flight crew noticed an object directly ahead on their flight path. The object appeared to be solid, approximately five to eight feet in diameter and shaped like an upright doughnut or inner tube,” the study reported.
“Cabin crew members received minor injuries when evasive action was taken. While the object was not likely a balloon and was suggested to be a drone, it was noted that drones could not fly at that altitude and distance.”
The Transportation Safety Board ruled the incident as “a near collision with an unidentified airborne object.”
Among the study’s other findings:
- Summer is when most UFO sightings occur
- Quebec and Ontario had the most sightings, with 38.5% and 26% respectively
- the most popular shape for UFOs were a simple point source of light (57%)
But it’s the personal, er, encounters that top the weird scale, the study found.
A man in Cornwall, PEI, reported that a thin, six-foot-tall, long-fingered white alien in a black suit spoke to him in his bedroom before leaving by walking through a wall.
Someone from Rimouski, Que., filed a report which read simply: “They contacted me!”

I'm told by those who know that some of the modern weed is powerful enough to do something like that. Anyway, it doesn't have to be an out-and-out halucination.

Marijuana doesn't exactly sharpen your judgement.
