BC a UFO hot spot

Hovering lights in the sky. Pulsing lights. Objects shaped like spheres, discs, triangles and boomerangs.

A survey released by Manitoba-based Ufology Researchon says there were 1,101 UFO sightings – an average of three a day – reported in Canada in 2017.

About eight per cent of those were deemed unexplainable.

“Many people continue to report unusual objects in the sky, and some of these objects do not have obvious explanations,” says the survey. “Many witnesses are pilots, police and other individuals with reasonably good observing capabilities and good judgment.”

On March 15, at 7:20 p.m., crews on two separate airliners 65 kilometres northeast of Enderby, B.C., reported a bright, white strobing light above them. Radar indicated no other known aircraft were in the vicinity.
