Nearly 100 reports this year alone!
Montreal Ranked #1 For Most UFO Sightings In Canada

Here's some news you don't hear every day. According to the Canadian UFO Survey, 2015 was a big year for UFO sightings. In fact, there over 1,200 of them, and Quebec accounts for a whole 35% of those reports.

The top 4 cities with UFO reports were:

  • Montreal - 97 reports
  • Toronto - 78 reports
  • Vancouver - 69 reports
  • Edmonton - 36 reports

Those are some pretty scary numbers. I'm not saying I believe in aliens, I'm just saying that it seems a little weird to have that many sightings in a single year. Which begs the question, what the hell is going on?

According to the study, most of the sightings only last a few minutes and most of the reports are about simple lights floating in the sky.

There are a few possible explanations given for the high number of reports.

First of all, there have been more military flights in the past year.

Second, filing a report is easier than ever. After all, it was a lot more difficult to report a sighting back in the 80's and 90's, but nowadays, you can just google it.

And third, which is probably the most depressing explanation of all, due to economic hardship people are reported to be "looking skyward for assistance". Everyone knows, that's where money comes from, duh.

The Saint-Hubert resident, 39, snapped a photo of the hazy spectres and took to the social media platform to crowdsource an explanation, wondering if they were catching a glimpse of the northern lights.
