MUFON sighting numbers have been suffering as well. In 2016 their average monthly sightings were between 350 and 400 per month. In 2017 sighting numbers fell between 275 and 300 reports per month. In 2018 the sighting numbers started at about 375 and bounced between 250 and 300 per month, as shown on the chart.
As shown in the chart, in 2016 the combined UFO sighting numbers hovered between 700 and nearly 900 per month. In 2017 the sighting numbers were down from 2016, and hovered between 260 to its lowest at 240, with a brief upsurge in June to a little over 325. In 2018, the combined sighting numbers started out at about 340 and bounced back and forth between 250 and 300, but are still heading downward.
Since the June article, I have had a great deal of social media commentary regarding this downward trend. The comments range from The aliens dont like us, People are apathetic about reporting, and Perhaps theres something astronomically going on with where the aliens are from. One comment suggested that the aliens are afraid of President Trumps proposed Space Force.
Square/rectangle silhouettes have been on a steady increase since 2010, while all the other common UFO silhouettes have been declining. Even the square/rectangles have shown a slight decrease in the past two years.
But one UFO that still continues to increase in sightings is the Saturn silhouette. The Saturn shape has been around for some time: One was reported in village of Norwood in St. Lawrence County, New York, in July 1833.

You could literally put that on Twitter, and you would have liberals RT that seriously with concern.
People are now looking DOWN at their smartphones instead of looking up.
The U means unidentified. So, logically, each “UFO” sighting has nothing in common with any other.
“I saw something but I don’t know what.” “So did I.” “I saw something too, but I don’t know what.” equals three “I don’t know whats.”
Interceptors, immediate launch.
The teasers found another primitive planet to have fun with.
Yeah . . . that’s the ticket . . . It wasn’t the Russians that meddled in our elections in favor of Trump . . . it was the ALIENS!!!!!!!
They’re cloaking now. :-)
Deep State resources directed elsewhere?
Amazing, what happens to the UFO sightings, when everyone has a Smart Phone with great photo taking abilities.
“We’ve saved the Earth by electing Donald Trump”
“Our work is finished” “We move on”
"Greengos?...we don't need no stinking Greengos!"
Well, Duh! The aliens have obviously improved their cloaking devices!
The extraterrestrials tuned into the MSM and decided that we’re regressing. No need to waste valuable dilithium crystals visiting a planet filled with progressives.
I was a child in the 1950s - I remember the UFO FAD. At the time they were as real as anything, especially after being at a Saturday afternoon matinee at the local theater. Two movies, cartoon, serials, newsreels - all for a quarter! Another quarter for a soft drink and popcorn, life was good in the 1950s.
“Beam me up Zorg. There’s nothing of interest on this planet the inhabitants call Earth.”
“-—————life was good in the 1950s.
I was a young adult in the 50s and freedom reigned.
The amount of nanny state laws and rampant litigation since that period boggles the mind.
Impossible no ships that small have cloaking devices!
WHERE ARE ALL THE PICTURES?
Have you ever seen a UFO? I have. My experiences were so fleeting, that by the time I processed what I was seeing, the object was gone. I could have had a camera in my hand at the time, and still couldn't have reacted quickly enough to get a photograph.
As far as dash cams, security cams, and the like, there's imagery you can find online. Most isn't that good, because those kinds of cameras aren't normally trained skyward.
As you would expect, the military and civilian aviation authorities get the best images of these things, because it's their job to watch the sky. Unfortunately, they tend to be a bit reluctant to share what they capture with the public.
