      UFOs seem to favour a 3-km-wide strip running along the high-voltage power

      UFO enthusiasts call it the Surrey corridor -- a three-kilometre-wide
      strip of land that runs from New Westminster to the U.S. border, along BC
      Hydro's high-voltage power lines.

      It is here, they say, where you will find the greatest concentration of
      UFO sightings and alien encounters in the province.

      "I have received numerous reports from inside this area, not only of
      sightings, but abduction events," said Graham Conway, vice-president of
      UFO*BC, who said anywhere from one-quarter to one-third of all
      Unidentified Flying Object sightings in the Lower Mainland take place in
      the corridor.

      Last year alone, there were 304 UFO sightings in B.C., according to Chris
      Rutkowski, a UFO researcher in Manitoba who collects numbers from
      provincial groups like UFO*BC.

      That made B.C. the number one province for UFO sightings in the country,
      with more than twice the sightings of second-place Ontario, which had 150.
      It was B.C.'s fifth year in top spot.

      And UFO*BC is doing its best to keep track of it all.

      The nine-year-old organization posts detailed reports on sightings and
      abductions on its website, sends out a quarterly newsletter to its 60
      members and even maintains a toll-free hotline where B.C. residents can
      report UFO sightings and alien encounters.

      It's been more than five years since The X-Files left Vancouver.

      But when it comes to the things that go bump in the night -- be they
      aliens, ghosts or Ogopogo -- B.C. seems to have no shortage of people
      willing to investigate the unexplained.

      In addition to UFO*BC, the province boasts organizations devoted to the
      investigation of haunted houses and "cryptozoologists" who specialize in
      gathering evidence about beings not yet accepted by science, like the
