Despite the well-liked belief, the term UFO signifies an Unidentified Flying Object, not a flying saucer or a spaceship. It applies to any object spotted in the sky that is not readily recognized by the observer. It can even apply to unusual weather conditions phenomena and the military plane not commonly seen by the public. However, when the phrase UFO is being used, the talk turns to aliens and spacecraft. But is the Manitoba strange sighting an exception to this case?
One researcher from Winnipeg has gathered data throughout the years and was able to determine strange flying objects. According to the investigator, he spotted more than 2,000 sightings hovering in the sky over Manitoba in the last two hundred years. Since 1980, Chris Rutkowski has been researching reports across Canada and handles preparing the yearly Canadian extraterrestrial Survey for the 25 years. While many reports are explainable as planes, satellites, and stars, it does not mean that Manitoba is being invaded, but it says that such place share in the global phenomenon. The sightings range from bizarre lights hovering through the skies and abduction reports. According to him, approximately 17.5% of the spotted objects are classified as “unexplained”. To be specific, 2,023 is the total number of reports, and the 767 figure comes from Winnipeg.
Rutkowski said he hoped his Manitoba-specific details will urge researchers to do the same in other vicinities in Canada. Whatever the case, it is apparent that every year more and more sightings are being reported and not just by regular Joes like you and me. They are being reported by pilots, a policeman, and government workers.
