Calgary isn’t just a hot spot for tourists pretending to be cowboys, extraterrestrial life forms appear to enjoy a bit of western culture as well.
In the latest Canadian UFO survey, Calgary ranked 2nd in all of Canada for UFO sightings last year with 26.
Across the country, 986 sightings were filed in 2011, falling just short of the record 1,004 back in 2008.
It seems Toronto was the centre of the universe for aliens with 34 sightings there.
Each sighting was witnessed by an average of two people and lasted about 11 minutes.
The study found that more than half of the reports were of simple lights in the sky. Witnesses also reported point sources of light, spheres and boomerangs.
Many of witnesses are pilots, police and other individuals with reasonably good capabilities and good judgment.
