Submission + - 2006 Annual Canadian UFO Report now out

trelayne writes: The 2006 Annual Report, which is compiled from various sources (including the Department Of National Defense and Transport Canada) attempts to scientifically categorize and analyze (for trends, etc.) Canadian UFO sightings and encounters. Among the most notable cases: An Air Canada Pilot encountering a fast moving light in front of his/her Boeing 767, automatically triggering its Tactical Collision Avoidance System; A man driving along a highway saw three orbs perform various maneuvers, including flying right by car.

According to the study, 2006 saw the third highest number of sightings since 1989 when the reports began. The provinces with the highest number of sightings included Ontario and British Columbia.
