• On February 28, 2018, a former U.S. military man reported to the National UFO Reporting Center an encounter and possible abduction by a UFO in Ontonagon, Michigan. The unnamed man was riding a snowmobile through the woods when “A light overpowered my headlight, which made me stop and look behind me… I witnessed a solid white light with pinkish strobe lights on either side of the main white light in the middle. Together they formed an oval saucer shape.” “It was close enough to me that it lit up the entire ground and trees around me.”
• “I killed the snowmobile and the object made absolutely no noise whatsoever, claimed the man. “It hovered silently, slowly moving up and down, and drifted far to the right and slowly went away from me.” “I tried chasing it through the woods, until it flew in a different direction that the trail went, so I lost sight of it.”
• When the man called his wife to tell her what happened in the “10 minutes” since he’d left her, she yelled at him that he had been gone for more than two hours.
• Each year, thousands of people claim to be abducted by aliens. Sceptics say that because the stories are now repeated online, people read them and recount similar tales. While there is no hard scientific evidence to support the alien abductions taking place, many people who report their experience relate remarkably similar stories.

 

Paranormal investigators are looking into mysterious claims from a former US military man he may have been abducted by aliens after being “stalked by a UFO.” The man, who has not been publicly named, filed a report with UFO investigators in which he claimed he experienced lost time during a nocturnal snowmobile ride through woods in Ontonagon, Michigan, USA.

In a witness report to the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) he said: “A light overpowered my headlight, which made me stop and look behind me.

“I witnessed a solid white light with pinkish strobe lights on either side of the main white light in the middle.

“Together they formed an oval saucer shape.”

He said the blinking lights had no rhythm.

The man added: “It was close enough to me that it lit up the entire ground and trees around me.
“I killed the snowmobile and the object made absolutely no noise whatsoever.

“It hovered silently slowly moving up and down and they drifted far to the right and slowly went away from me.

“I tried chasing it through the woods, until it flew in a different direction that the trail went, so I lost sight of it.”

He called his wife to explain what happened in the “10 minutes” after he left her and he said she yelled at him that he had been gone for more than two hours.

• In 2017, data analyst Adam Crahen plotted all 58,828 reports submitted between 1995 and 2014 to the National UFO Reporting Center on a map of the United States, resulting in a green swath across nearly the entirety of the nation. When this UFO map is overlaid with a map of all US military installations (see above), they generally coincide.
• This might mean that aliens take a particular interest in what our military is doing. Or it may mean that many UFO sightings are nothing more than misidentified military aircraft. Military aircraft are often mistaken for Unidentified Flying Objects because their shape and unconventional behavior.
• Or could it be both of these explanations? After all, the National UFO Reporting Center has documented nearly 60,000 sightings over a 19-year span.
[Editor’s Note] Or could it be that the extraterrestrials and the US military are working together?

 

In the past few months, the idea of Unidentified Flying Objects as spacecraft from another world has enjoyed a resurgence in the minds of the public, thanks in no small part to the revelation that the Pentagon has been secretly devoting millions of dollars to the investigation of just such anomalous sightings for years now. Of course, public interest in the idea that we’re being visited by advanced air platforms hailing from across the sea or across the galaxy, tends to be cyclical, and one could be forgiven for assuming that reports of strange objects in the sky had died down in the years since the last time the X-Files was on the air. Surprisingly, or perhaps, unsurprisingly (depending on your beliefs) that doesn’t seem to be the case.

The internet has allowed independent organizations devoted to the serious (and sometimes not-so-serious) study of UFOs the reach they need to compile massive amounts of data regarding sightings and even supposed interactions with everything from flying saucers to time machines. These largely self-reported sighting databases maintained by groups like The National UFO Reporting Center offer thousands of sightings to click through and read about – providing either a glimpse into the honest reporting of thousands of Americans… or the ravings of mad men and internet trolls. It’s honestly almost impossible to differentiate between the two.

None the less, there are some interesting things to glean from these data aggregators, whether you believe each data point represents a legitimate sighting of something unusual, the delusion of a wishful thinker, or the geographic location of an internet troll. Acknowledging that, deep within the Pentagon, there are senior defense officials tasked with investigating sightings of this sort suggests that there’s some value to be had in taking a look at some of these cases, or from a macro-perspective, to looking for trends in sightings that may offer reasonable explanations for regions with abnormal high rates of sightings.

Last year, data analyst Adam Crahen took of one of the largest databases of alleged UFO encounters online, maintained by the the aforementioned National UFO Reporting Center, and plotted all 58,828 reports submitted between 1995 and 2014 on a map of the United States. The final product is an impressive, or perhaps frightening, green swath across nearly the entirety of the United States, seemingly suggesting that UFOs are not only here, but American airspace is just lousy with them.
Or maybe not. It comes as no surprise that more sightings are reported in areas of the country that are heavily populated (more people means more sightings) but the greener patches of the map also seem to coincide with something else.

When laying that same map of reported UFO sightings over a U.S. map showing the locations of all military installations, an interesting trend starts to emerge: many of the regions that seem to show a high frequency of UFO reports coincide with the locations of military installations. For the conspiracy minded, this might mean our alien visitors have taken a particular interest in what our military is up to… but others might be inclined to conclude that many of these supposed UFO sightings may be nothing more than misidentified military aircraft.

• Peter Davenport, the director of the Washington state-based National UFO Reporting Center (NURC), says, “I know that this is the greatest scientific question that has ever confronted man… whether we are alone or not.” “And I submit to you that we are visited on a frequent basis. This is the biggest story in the world.”
• UFO sightings are most frequent in California and Florida where 13,033 and 6,190 UFOs have been reported, respectively, since the database’s inception in the 1990s.
• In 2017, residents of New York City reported 39 UFO sightings. This number is down compared to 2016, when the city reported 47 sightings to the NURC’s online database. New York City’s sightings accounted for about 23 percent of the 169 reported across the state of New York in 2017.
• New Yorkers reported seeing flashing lights or objects of varying shapes in the sky for as little as 30 seconds to as long as 30 minutes. Lots of the events came late at night or early in the morning, though some were reported during daylight hours.

 

NEW YORK, NY — The truth is out there – and it might have visited the Big Apple in 2017. New Yorkers reported 39 sightings of unidentified flying objects across the five boroughs during the year, according to the National UFO Reporting Center.

Most reports came out of Brooklyn, where 15 people spotted unusual lights or shapes floating through the skies. Ten sightings came from Queens, nine from Manhattan, three from Staten Island and two from the Bronx.

UFO sightings are down this year compared to 2016, when the city reported 47 sightings to the NURC’s online database. Manhattan saw 18 UFOs that year, Brooklyn saw 14, Queens saw 11, the Bronx saw six and Staten Island three.

New York City’s sightings accounted for about 23 percent of the 169 reported across the state this year, NURC’s database shows.

New Yorkers reported seeing flashing lights or objects of varying shapes in the sky for as little as 30 seconds to as long as 30 minutes. Lots of the events came late at night or early in the morning, though some were reported during daylight hours.

“All of the sudden, I see 2 triangles made up of lights floating by in the sky,” wrote one Astoria, Queens, resident who was looking out of a fifth-floor apartment window over the East River at 9:29 p.m. on Oct. 20. “There 1 second gone the next. One triangle was made of red lights and the other craft made of blue.”

New York City is far from alone in seeing UFOs. The NURC has reports from every U.S. state and other nations. Sightings are most frequent in California and Florida — sky-watchers there have reported 13,033 and 6,190 UFOs respectively since the database’s inception in the 1990s.

The U.S. government became interested enough in flying saucers that in 2007 it launched a Department of Defense program to study sightings of them, according to a bombshell report in The New York Times this month. Former government officials, including the program’s former director, say the effort is still active, though federal funding for it ran out in 2012.
