What Are The Odds Of Seeing A UFO In The US? It Depends On Where You Live

by Mark Lugris                     September 24. 2018                        (thethings.com)

• The National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) has cataloged almost 90,000 reported UFO sightings since it was founded in 1974. However, some are actual UFOs of extraterrestrial origin, and some are not. Casino.org has launched a webpage where visitors can find the probability of seeing a UFO in their state, as well as learn about notable UFO sightings throughout history.

• In the United States, the highest probability of seeing a UFO is in Wyoming, where your odds are one in 20,500. In Florida the odds drop to one in 348,500. Meanwhile, in Missouri, which only has a population of 6,113,532, there have been 7,467 UFO sightings, yet in New York, with a population of 19,849,399, there have been a scant 7,641 sightings.

• On January 13, 2018, a witness in Pasadena, California saw five “circular UFOs” at 12:45 pm. A second witness 90 miles away in Carlsbad, California saw the five circular objects at 2:30 pm. Two and a half hours later in Hollywood, Florida, a police officer reported seeing “numerous orange lights above the coastline”.

• In addition to UFO sightings, a sociological research poll revealed that nearly four million Americans have been abducted by aliens. Consequently, 40,000 Americans have purchased alien abduction insurance.

 

Despite that the fact that aliens are usually seen as a futuristic lifeform, UFO sightings date back thousands of years. In 1440 BC, the scribes of Pharaoh Thutmose III reportedly saw “fiery disks” floating over the skies. And in 74 BC, a Roman army under the command of Lucullus was engaged in battle with Mithridates VI of Pontus when “all on a sudden, the sky burst asunder, and a huge, flame-like body was seen to fall between the two armies. In shape, it was almost like a wine-jar, and in color, like molten silver,” according to Plutarch, a Greek biographer. The UFO was reportedly seen by both armies.

Nowadays, the odds of seeing a UFO depend mostly on where you live. In the US, you are most likely to see a UFO in Wyoming, where your odds are one in 20,500. However, if you live in Florida, your odds drop to one in 348,500. Meanwhile, in Missouri, which only has a population of 6,113,532, there have been 7,467 UFO sightings, yet in New York, which has a population of 19,849,399, there have been a scant 7,641 sightings.

Casino.org has launched a site that explores UFO sighting odds where users can check the probability of seeing a UFO in their state, as well as learn about notable UFO sightings throughout history.

This year in California and Florida, three different residents in three different cities reported seeing UFOs on the same day. On January 13, a witness in Pasadena, California said they had seen at least five “circular UFOs” at 12:45 pm. The second sighting took place at 2:30 pm about 90 miles away in Carlsbad, California when five circular objects were seen. Two and a half hours later in Hollywood, Florida, there was another sighting of “numerous orange lights above the coastline,” by a police officer.

Sightings can be reported to the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC), an organization that investigates UFO sightings and/or alien contacts. NUFORC, which has operated continuously since it was founded in 1974 by Robert J. Gribble, has cataloged almost 90,000 reported UFO sightings. However, it is estimated that 90-95% of sightings are not UFOs. They can be weather events, military tests or other incidents. Still, there are many sightings that cannot be explained.

US Military Man Fears He Was ‘Abducted by Aliens’ After UFO Trailed Him Through Snow

by Jon Austin               March 26, 2018                   (express.co.uk)

• 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.

Nearly 60,000 UFO Sightings Show Correlation Between Sightings and Military Bases

by Alex Hollings               February 6, 2018               (sofrep.com)

• 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.
