UFO Conjecture(s)

Why are Canadian media reporting so many UFO sightings there?



Are UFOs, as ET believers see them, invading the upper north in scads?

Is the phenomenon showing up in droves because there is a climate change or a meteorological change spurring sightings of it, the “phenomenon”?

Are the sightings a new manifestation of mass hysteria, by Canada’s normally sane populace?

Are Canada media suffering slow news days?

What accounts for the current upsurge in UFO sightings/reports in the Canadian provinces, especially Quebec?

We assume that extraterrestrials aren’t finding this planet anew and checking it out again and again. Such visitations are imaginary and idiotic.

And Canada’s news media is not prone to be sensational as news media is here in the U.S. or in Britain.

Has something happened in the atmosphere that is causing a spurt of a environmental anomaly? (That may be a possibility, one easily checked one would think, if UFOs were taken seriously.)

Or have Canadians suddenly gone mad? (Paul Kimball might address that for us.)

UFOs, showing up in such numbers as those being reported, are called by ufological mavens “flaps.”

I’d call it a matter of anxiety crisis, sort of in the Jungian mode of UFO interpretation, but that would only be a haggard guess. (My mother was from Canada and a little nuts, but that before UFOs came on the scene.)

So what have we here with this reportage? Tell me…

  • The reason the Canadians are seeing UFOs so much is that they are getting over-excited at the possibility that we in the UK might vote to quit the EU.

    Simple, isn't it?

  • @ Julien,

    I remember you asked us (Chris & myself in particular) about how to records your sighting(s) or the cameras apparatus devoted for, (Well, 2 or 3 years ago, now?) and you, to be (claiming) situated to an hot-spot!

    Again, you offer (as usual) to the readers a simple testimony... Despite you asked us how to "record" your awesome sightings by "hardward".
    So, what are you waiting for to record it (by cameras) if you have so numerous sightings over your house and the design to capture it we proposed to you?

    Well, that's ufology, after all...

    Gilles.

A small part of the sky (located exactly over our house) began to show very weird and intense flashes, with color shifting between red and green. I can say that this was not an aurora borealis because I am used to them."

    If this is associated with geological phenomenon your conclusion would best be supported with data of anomalous geological activity in that area concurrent with the incident. I'm sure it's available.

    That being said, similar lights have been caught on video and appear to be atmospheric weather phenomenon induced by light refraction coupled with electrically charged particles.

    As you know though, many people claim these lights are a result of HAARP or CHEM-TRAIL research which has yet to be proven.

  • Good afternoon,

    The reason for the increase in reports is, IMHO, the easy accessibility of online UFO reporting sites.

    I am a member of the Association Québécoise d’Ufologie and we set up an online
    reporting site a few years ago. Even if the members of the organization have very differing
    opinions on the subject, we share a common interest on UFOs.

    Please note that these reports are just raw observations. Most of them are just misidentifications of mundane phenomena such as aircraft or bright planets or stars. These are « pre-UFOs », according to Claude Maugé classification.

    For my own field of research, only two out of over 400 sightings reported in 2015 are possible earth lights (I investigated both cases on the field), giving a percentage of just 0,5%.

    Best regards,

    Jean

    100% agree (as a possibility).

    In general, it is not the total of sightings which is "increasing", but the way to report unusual things in the sky (as variable) becoming more accessible (and then comptabilized by ufologists) / mediatization of the thematic or for one case, etc. I defended it here or there as a PSH defender (UFO skeptic)...

    Such studies must take into the equation, the medias in those locations speaking about UFO (TV, etc), calls to witnesses (inconsciously or not due to a TV show), activities/initiatives by local ufological associations to encourage/facilitating reports, etc.

    In essence, I'm not convinced that the number of sightings is increasing in its Canadian survey, but maybe the number of reports collected/encouraged by "ufological processes" increasing/encouraging. Like for the Belgian UFO wave in short.

    Regards,

    Gilles
