Default Went on Vacation, Came Back to Clearcoat Issues

As the title says, I went on a vacation for just under two weeks and left the car in my parents' driveway. When I returned, I noticed that there were these hazy splotches on the hood, right by the hood scoop. After further inspection, I realized that some of them were quite large, the clear coat was severly peeling, revealing the bare paint. The only thing I could think of is sun damage... but I leave the car in the sun every day for work. There weren't anywhere for birds to sit above the car... My parents said that they didn't do anything differently, and I've had the car sit in that spot in the driveway for extended periods of time before and saw nothing like this. There were 3 other cars in the driveway, nothing like this appears on them. And as far as I can tell, it's isolated to just the hood.

It's an '06 OBP STI.

Does anyone know how this happened? Secondly, does anyone know where I should begin by fixing it? Just remove the clearcoat on the affected areas and follow the other threads on peeling clearcoat?
