• UFO sightings over Belgium surged in 2018 with Belgians making 255 UFO reports, compared to 171 eyewitness reports made in 2017. Even the mayor of a suburban town near Wezembeek-Oppem reported spotting a UFO in the summer. Belgium had nearly the same amount of sightings last year as its much larger neighbor, France.
• Belgium experienced a UFO Wave from November 1989 to April 1990, with the triangle craft (TR3B) being the most reported. One of these delta craft was even chased by Belgian F-16 fighter jets.
• Patrick Ferryn, president of Cobeps, the Belgian committee for the study of space phenomena, said, “We don’t know why the numbers have increased this year. It was a hot summer and it may be simply that when the weather is good and the skies are clear, people look at the skies more often.” In 2018 the majority of sighting were explained away as being planes, balloons, meteors, Chinese lanterns and satellites – usually the International Space Station.
• “Surprisingly drones have still not had an impact,” said Mr Ferryn, “Ever since the first drones went on the shelves we have been waiting to be submerged with reports of a galactic invasion of drones – but it still has not happened.”
UFO sightings over the supposedly boring country of Belgium surged last year with astonished Belgians reporting higher numbers of possible alien spaceships than in 2017.
Belgium recorded 255 reports of UFOs in 2018, an increase on the 171 witnessed in 2017. Sightings were up across the whole country, peaking in October, with increases in the French-speaking region of Wallonia, Dutch-speaking Flanders and Brussels.
179 sightings were reported in more prosperous Flanders, compared to 76 in more rural Wallonia. Brussels is the country’s third federal region and the mayor of the leafy suburb of Wezembeek-Oppem made news last summer when he claimed to have spotted a UFO.
Belgian UFO investigators told the Telegraph that the 2018 figures were a return to the form shown over the last five years.
Despite being smaller than Switzerland, Belgium has regularly punched above its weight when it comes to UFO sightings. Even in 2017, a relatively fallow year, it outscored Norway, Finland and Denmark and recorded only a handful fewer sightings than its much larger neighbour France.
From November 1989 to April 1990, Belgian UFO spotters enjoyed their golden age. The Belgian UFO Wave involved multiple reports of triangular shaped craft in Belgian skies over an extended period, including one which was chased by F-16 fighter jets.
Patrick Ferryn, president of Cobeps, the francophone Belgian committee for the study of space phenomena, said, “You must know that most of these sightings will have the most banal explanation but there is a residue, which we simply can’t explain. And of those, there may be two or three where we may have questions over where they came from.”
“We don’t know why the numbers have increased this year. It was a hot summer and it may be simply that when the weather is good and the skies are clear, people look at the skies more often,” he added.
