The 36-page report, produced by Ufology Research and edited by Winnipegger Chris Rutkowski, said there were an average of about three sightings per day.

More than 40 per cent of the UFO sightings were in Ontario while the typical UFO sighting lasted about 13 minutes.

As well, while more than half of all sightings are "simple lights in the sky", some are definite shapes.

Ufology Research said many of the witnesses are "pilots, police and other individuals with reasonably good observing capabilities and good judgment".
