UFO sightings are nothing new. The Puritans reported strange sightings and lights in the sky as early as the 1600s. With the advent of movies about outer space and unidentified flying objects came even more sightings. The National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) has an entire website dedicated to the "collection and dissemination of objective UFO data." The organization curates reports of UFO sightings in the U.S. and Canada via a web form and a phone hotline, which has operated almost continuously since 1974. NUFORC logged a total of 4,655 sightings in 2017, down from the 2016 total of 5,619.

When you need a distraction, you turn to aliens.
It’s because CA is full of aliens of all types - legal, illegal, Democrats, liberals, socialists. So seeing a UFO is not that big of a deal to them. It’s kind of like normal people seeing houses, people, cars, trees. But to them, it’s UFOs.
How many from the recent Space-X launch?
Crazy Video of Object in Sky over Los Angeles (SpaceX Falcon 9)
“My wife, Erica, just got a crazy video of what turned out to be the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base.
Everyone in parking lots and in the cars around her were stopped and taking videos. People were talking to those in other cars around them trying to figure out if it was a missile or a meteor. Awesome video to watch.”
Arizona.... most UFO sightings per capita!! Hoooray!!
You dont get:
out of a sane population group!
More sightings than Wyoming? Astounding!
My God this is incredible. Someone should PING Quix’s boyfriend.
I can see how that would confound people, it’s an eerie looking launch.
With the legalization of marijuana taking effect on January 1, that number will go up in smoke.
“When you need a distraction, you turn to aliens.”
That the connection-assumption most people make, UFO = aliens. But a UFO is simply just something flying that a person can’t identify off the bat.
I see UFOs every time I throw leftovers in the pan and start heating ‘em up. Unidentified Frying Objects.
Thanks for sharing the Buchanan Brothers! :)
They still haven’t figured out “Independence Day” was a movie? Those movies look so real!
A hint. Never turn your back on an alien. Anal probage is very very likely to happen. Face them and back away. Protect the poop shoot at all costs. They live on fresh human poop. ;-)
The reason California reports more sightings is because Area 51 pilots like to test the experimental craft over us.
My state also leads the nation in homeless drug addicts and millinneal meth heads...that explains the UFO “sightings”
It’s the most populous state
It’s also has a very large area
Large expanses with little or no light pollution
Moderate climate (for the most part) makes stargazing a decent hobby
Based solely on population the #1 outlier is Montana (47 sightings, #34 of 50 states)
To me a bigger outlier is Connecticut (146 sightings - #9 out of 50 states, also has a very small area, cold climate, lots of light pollution).
At the other extreme is Texas (116 sightings - #12 out of 50 states). Based on population you would expect more.
That's sure plausible.
There are threads on Q-anon, 4chan, 8chan on FR and other places with plenty of youtubes about it all. But it's a challenge to find the better youtubes on the Q-anon stuff. Some of the better ones are listed on the threads here and at
Time will tell. Interesting times, as the Chinese might say.
I'm a 65 y.o. widowed grandmother.
California has a lot of defense industries. AZ has more than a few. It's hard to guess much about the geographical clustering. But defense industries, bodies of water, sites with "devil" in the place names, and nuclear weapons seem to correlate a bit more with increased UFO sightings according to some.
