The truth is out there and apparently Vancouverites can see it more than anyone else in the country. According to the latest numbers from the Canadian UFO Survey, Vancouver is home to the most UFO sightings in Canada.

In 2013 there were 116 sightings of unidentified flying objects in Vancouver. The province of British Columbia reported 298 sightings, coming second behind Ontario which reported 480 sightings.

Throughout last year, there were 1,180 reports across the country – a second best record that comes after 2012’s swarm of 2,000 sightings due to the excitement surrounding the Mayan Calendar. Most sightings occur during the evening hours and peak at approximately 10 p.m. local time.

British Columbia and Ontario represent 65 per cent of the nation’s total UFO sightings. On average, there are three reported sightings per day with the typical sighting lasting for 13-minutes.
