Large UFO seen by children in Nova Scotia
I received a report that two children saw a large UFO on January 8, 2013, at about 5:30 pm. The location was Musquodoboit, Nova Scotia, about 40 minutes east of Dartmouth.
The two, a boy, 10 years old and a girl, 7, had been sledding (or "coasting," as they call it there) on some small hills near their homes when they suddenly saw a very large object coming towards them, flying low over trees south of their position.
They said they heard a beeping noise which caused them to look up, and that's when they saw the object that was "shaped like a massive hotel," and "like a big ball." Although it was already dusk, there was enough light that they could see the black colour of the object. It had several yellow lights on its body, "two in front, a couple on the sides and some in the back," as well as two "brown legs sticking out from the bottom." In addition, there was a "gun" sticking out of the left side of the object's midsection.
The boy drew the following sketch of the object:
Apparently, there was some kind of windows on the surface of the object.
Both children were scared, and said they "started shaking" when the strange craft approached. The older of the two children said they watched it for about two minutes, "then it was gone... zoom!" It apparently flew over a nearby house, then out of sight behind some trees and was lost to sight.
The young girl drew the following:
I managed to speak with the boy's mother, who explained that she believes her son saw something, but told him "You better be telling the truth!" She said he is not prone to making up stories or telling lies, and that he seemed to be serious.
She took his story so seriously, in fact, that she contacted the RCMP, which dispatched an officer to their house. The boy's mother said she was impressed that her son's story "didn't change at all," implying that he had really seen something odd and that he was not simply making up a story in coercion with his friend.
Investigation is pending. [above slightly edited following further information from the boy's mother, Jan. 14, 2013]

What is it about New Year's Day UFOs?
Last year, on New Year's Day 2012, there was a rash (or flap) of UFO sights across the country. Since there is an average of three UFO reports per days in Canada, having more than a dozen is rather curious. That's all: curious.
But this year, it happened again.
January 1, 2013, saw many UFO sightings reported to various websites and organizations across Canada, including Vike, Davenport, Ufology Research, PSICAN and others. There are a few possible reasons, as I see it. First, there are more people outside on New Year's Eve than most nights during the Canadian winter. hence, more potential witnesses. Second, the oft-invoked Chinese lanterns are definitely launched on New Year's Eve by revelers.
Sightings from New Year's Day are split between early-morning sightings and early evening reports. The former are likely caused by a combination of the two effects noted above. Why there would be a cluster of evening cases is not clear.
Here is a preliminary list of the cases from January 1, 2013:
Fort Saskatchewan, AB
4 bright yellow lights in perfect square, with 5th following behind, heading E. Disappeared after 3 mins.
Red light moving across sky, not blinking, no sound.
Fort Saskatchewan, AB
Saw 2 lights “wiz around the lake for a couple of minutes, then disappear.”
Just after midnight
Three reddish-orange lights slowly going E-W, faded 1 by 1 after about a minute
5 bright orange lights grouped in sky, turned red one by one and flashed and vanished. All headed north.
4 “craft” in sky: red-orange objects, as if on fire, heading north. Vanished by 12:08 am.
2 amber-coloured lights traveling south for 10 to15 seconds.
Two orange/yellow lights noiselessly flew low in sky, vanished after 2 mins.
5 yellow/orange objs. With incandescent glow. Going SE, flickered as they flew noiselessly.
Prince Albert, SK
Four orange lights “floating around the sky.” Moved fast, then slowly, crossed paths.
Ball or orange/yellow light steadily going SE, went behind cloud.
Light over city. Was originally white, turned orange, then red. Climbed heading SE, then dimmed until lost to sight.
Wasaga Beach, ON
Orange light going W-E over Georgian Bay. Duaration about 1 minute.
Four bright orange lights hovering over west Montreal.
6 lights over Montreal Island.
Hornby Island, BC
Large red object in orange mist rose from horizon for about 10 mins. And 10 blue “orbs” extended in arch across sky, for eight hours.
Red-orange light going ESE, stopped for 2 mins, then gained altitude and dimmed.
3 orange lights in sky, 2 moving east and rising, 3rd dropping lower
Just an added note, however: In addition to the nineteen reports from January 19, there were seven from December 31, 2012, supporting the "New Year's Eve Effect."

Another year of UFOs
First of all, welcome to 2013. You've managed to successfully complete another revolution around our star, Sol. Wonderful.
What does 2013 bode for UFOs and ufology?
Errol Bruce-Knapp, venerable list owner of UFO Updates, has offered the following words of ufological wisdom.
Yet another year slides on by and are we any the wiser about UFOs? Rhetorical.
The field has scattered, sources 'grown', facts diluted and ignored. Not quite what we'd anticipated and hoped for.
I must agree with his observations. Ufology is very disjointed and rudderless at this point. Perhaps the plans of the evil skeptitude are working. The dilution and ignoring of facts in favour of rapid arm-waving is certainly waxing significantly.
Yet, those "in the know" carry on, undaunted. (And in many cases, sadly uninformed).
As I've said many times before: "The truth is out there... but unfortunately, we're stuck in here."
Oh, and I've starting to compile the 2012 Canadian UFO Survey. Looks like another banner year, simply going by the six-inch stack of case files on my desk.
And yes, we've already received dozens of reports from 2013 already.
Happy New Year!
