UFO sightings on the increase

The Mutual UFO Network has reported a significant increase in UFO sightings over the past six weeks.

It isn't clear what, if anything, this might mean - some US states have reported almost double the usual average sightings for the same period. Could people be simply more inclined to report sightings these days or could something big be on the horizon ?

"According to an organization that tracks UFO reports, this summer has been an especially busy period for UFO sightings."

He can't be in Slovenia. We all know that he lost his head on the moon. So, you spotted it, eh?

Did all of you read the article that septic peg posted? Besides its reporting of an observed increase in the reporting of UFO"s, it also pretty much covered every possible caveat of why it may not be an actual increase of UFO's. Yes, it has covered most of the comments that have been posted here, in this post, as individual personal opinion. So this article already says what most everyone here is posting. The article closes with an all inclusive statement that should leave most anyone wondering what to believe about the headline of "So whats up with the big increase in UFO reports, by saying--...

I'm not sure there has been an increase this year, really. I think the increase has more to do with the media. There aren't more UFO reports being made,it's just that news is reporting it more often. I'd guess the numbers are about the same, however, with the increase in technology, and the need to have a camera attached to each handy little gadget we own, more people are getting more evidence, there for more news out lets are using it to draw ratings.

some of the ufos are man-made. In area 51 they reverse engineered ufos that they had found in the past. ufos are real, aliens do exist. our ancestor knew this. the government of USA had made contact with them. the reason the government doesn't want us to know this is because they dont think the public is ready to handle the truth. but i believe we'll find out soon in the near future. check out the 'disclosure project'.

Yeah, it is, and in my honest opinion this "increase" in UFO sightings is more is more an indication of the proliferation of broadband internet connections and the increased ease of reporting such sightings rather than an actual increase in sightings. Naturally, I could be wrong and I shall be the first to admit that I have not done any research into the statistics of this, but it just sounds like the plausible explanation to me. Cheers, Badeskov Yah must be the broadband....hahaha, dial up can't catch ufos

With the rate at which technology is advancing, there is no reason why UFO sightings wouldn't be increasing.

I have been studying the subject for many years and here is what I think is going on with these UFos. 1. 99% of them are made in the USA. Before the first massive sightings in 1947 they were seen very rarely. After 1947 they have been seen by the hundreds, some of them flying in squadron formations. The excuse used by UFO people to explain this problem is that the aliens saw the first flashes of the atomic bombs in 1945 and came running to investigate. 60 years later they are still investigating. IT does not make sense. 2. Power sources. I believe they are using advanced nuclear power engines ... [More]
