Look to the skies in Mississauga and Brampton and who knows what you will see — it might even be a UFO.
According to the recently released 2016 Canadian UFO Survey, which is an annual report compiled by the Canadian organization Ufology Research, there were 13 unidentified flying object (UFO) sightings in Mississauga last year and three in Brampton.
There are reports that in Brampton on April 23 around 9 p.m. there was a “V-shaped light moving around slightly in the same area changing colours” while in Mississauga near Pearson International Airport on Nov. 4 around 5:22 a.m. there was a report of “two bright lights, one red, one white, seeming to approach (and) slow almost to a stop (before) then suddenly departing.”
Across the country, there were 1,131 UFO sightings in 2016. That’s a drop from the 1,267 reported the previous year.
Nine of the Mississauga sightings were said to have had insufficient information to make a determination on what they were, according to the survey, while three were listed as having possible or probable explanations while one was categorized as unexplained.
The unexplained incident happened Nov. 16 around 6:10 p.m. and involved a “flat object with lights at each end pulsating and reversing direction, flying at high speed.”
In Brampton, two were said to have possible or probable explanations and the other was deemed insufficient.
Across the country, 21 per cent of last year’s reports were considered to have probable explanations while 74 per cent were insufficient, which was a big reversal from the previous year’s report where 66 per cent were probable and 20 per cent considered insufficient. The report notes that’s because of a “more rigorous evaluation process” this year.
About four per cent were considered unexplained, which the report says is the lowest in its 28 years, but does note that classification doesn’t imply alien visitation.
“Each case may still have an explanation following further investigation. And, of those that remain unexplained, they may (stay) unexplained but still are not incontrovertible proof of extraterrestrial intervention or some mysterious natural phenomenon,” reads the report.
Only 1.5 per cent were categorized as explained, the lowest amount since 1992.
In 2015, there were nine UFO sightings in Mississauga and 11 in Brampton.
The report found the majority of sightings came in June, July and August (about 37.7 per cent) and most were reported as lights in the sky (54.9 per cent). In terms of cities, Montreal reported the most (73) while Vancouver (70) and Toronto (65) were a close second and third.
Some of the shapes seen in the reports were triangle, ball, cigar, fireball and the classic flying saucer (which was reported 48 times or about five per cent of the total sightings).
The annual survey compiles UFO sightings across Canada that are reported to a number of sources, including the Mutual UFO Network.
Some of the more unusual highlights of the report include a sighting from Cornwall, Prince Edward Island on Jan. 10 where a “thin, six-foot-tall long-fingered white alien in a black suit appeared in (a) bedroom. The witness spoke to the alien, which then left by walking through a wall.”
Another from Tecumseh, Ontario on Jan. 12 stated that the witness “reported that an alien entity was responsible for stealing his sunglasses, belt and silver possessions. Later, the witness produced a photograph in which he thought a ‘rip in space and time’ could be seen.”
