There were four reports of UFO sightings in Barrie last year, according to the 2015 Canadian UFO Survey released by Ufology Research in Manitoba.

In March, there was a report of someone who said "star like light appeared to change shape."

Then in May, there was a report of "bright orange lights moving across the sky."

In August someone said they saw a "squarish object rotating just over power lines" and in September came a report of an "orange glowing object in sky."

There were a total of 12 reports of UFO sightings in Simcoe County with the most detailed in Bradford.

That sighting at 3 p.m. on March 15 featured "3 multi-coloured objects in sky, 2 triangles, one flat. Middle object stationary while other two moved around it, disappeared, then reappeared for 10 minutes."

Wasaga Beach tied Barrie with four sightings: "3 objects in sky turned red to grey," "red light in sky moving erratically," "2 fireballs seen in sky" and "triangular object outlined with red light."

In Orillia someone reported a small object that appeared to be following jet.

A witness from Lake Simcoe "states orange ball in sky" and in Port Severn "orange lights in sky that eventually disappeared."

There were 314 sightings reported across Ontario. 

Across the country there were 1,267 UFO sightings reported -  or about three or four each day - making 2015 the second-highest year for UFO reports in the past 30 years, according to the survey. 

Since 1989, Ufology Research of Manitoba has solicited sightings data from active Canadian researchers.

The 2015 survey says numbers of reported UFO sightings remain high. 

Researchers suggest several theories for this including possibly more UFOs out there to be spotted, more secret or classified military exercises and technology that allows more people to report sightings.

Or the survey says it could just be tough times.

"The downturn in the economy is leading to an increased desire by some people to look skyward for assistance," according to the survey.
