Did your county make the top list ? Image Credit: PD Max Pixel
Data collected by two UFO researchers has revealed the US counties with the largest number of UFO sightings.
The UFO phenomenon has certainly been gaining attention in recent months, mainly thanks to the interest surrounding the US government's recently released report into the UAPs (unidentified arial phenomena) encountered by Navy pilots during training exercises off the coast of the United States.

A recent Gallup poll also indicated that 41% of Americans believe that some UFOs are alien in nature.
Now new data collected by UFO researchers Cheryl Costa and Linda Miller has revealed just how widespread UFO sightings actually are across the country as well as which counties have seen the largest number of UFO reports over the last two decades.

Interestingly, Horry County, South Carolina tops the list, with 844 sightings between 2001 and 2020.

The top ten list is as follows:
  1. 844 - Horry County, South Carolina (254.1 sightings per 100k)
  2. 515 - Yavapai County, Arizona (225.8 sightings per 100k
  3. 403 - Mohave County, Arizona (194 sightings per 100k)
  4. 339 - Whatcom County, Washington (153.5 sightings per 100k)
  5. 448 - Lane County, Oregon (120 sightings per 100k)
  6. 511 - Ada County, Idaho (111.9 sightings per 100k)
  7. 476 - Pinal County, Arizona (110 sightings per 100k)
  8. 379 - Larimer County, Colorado (109.9 sightings per 100k)
  9. 348 - Boulder County, Colorado (107.9 sightings per 100k)
  10. 328 - St Louis City County, Missouri (106.4 sightings per 100k)

Can't I'm afraid. No such thing as a 'practical' example of a 'theoretical' model. 'practical' :- "of or concerned with the actual doing or use of something rather than with theory and ideas" 'theoretical' :- "concerned with or involving the theory of a subject or area of study rather than its practical application." We can theorize the ***t out of it, but we can't show how it works in practicality.

I was aware what you answer would be before you made it. My point in my previous post was to give people a basic graphic representation of an Einstein-Rosen bridge. ( Wormhole ) Since there is no functioning model the model that was posted could theoretically be correct however, that doesnt even matter in the scheme of things. In reality there are many members who my read this thread and who may not have enough any idea concerning this subject.  Oh and by the way,  it certainly isn't necessary to provide definitions of such commonly used words! Have a great day man and thanks for your pos... [More]

I agree with you, it's a lovely illustration of the wormhole theory. Explained in a similar fashion in the movie Event Horizon I seem to remember.

But wait.  Aren't we forgetting Evolution mixed together with a good old fashioned pint of Reality? 1,000,000 years after a major evolutionary upgrade, mankind becomes technological genius in 200 years.  Cool!  Now we are threatening the entire Planet with our do you think Earth will look in another Billion years?  Will it even be here?  I think your example is just Star Trek Thinking.  In other words, it doesn't come with a shred of Reality to illustrate is just fantasy.  Reality dictates a much more drastic equation.   It is far more likely that evol...

Actually the Swiss Cheese is our current knowledge of Physics with the holes representing our gaps in that knowledge. The evolutionary upgrade your talking about above occurred in the last 100,000, with the jump forward in technology occurring in the last 200 years. No they would not be God at all, but one thing is for certain we would not want to meet them!! Yes you did mention a crumpled piece of paper in another thread, but the design wasn't symmetrical and our Universe from its beginning has been very symmetrical down to the distribution of matter and anti-matter!!  My example of a wormho...

I don't really know what they are talking about...and I think it is just so much Star Wars bs.  Quantum this and quantum that.  How about Reality.  But, since we are fantasizing;   How about IF the Big Bang was the cause...why couldn't the universe  be like a crumpled piece of paper?  A sheet of paper comes out as ...a sheet of paper...but if an outside your hands...crumples up the paper...guess what...your sheet of paper is now all wadded up!  So...what caused the Big Bang?  Oh, well, you know...we really don't know..... Well...something caused it...Cause and Effect righ... [More]

No need to apologize, its obvious you did not read the paper  and it very obvious that you dont understand the reason I choose it. Well since we are being honest here, I stopped sometime ago taking our conversations seriously. Because of that, I also stopped posting relevant information when having a discussion with you.  For the following reasons: 1. The reason I used that inked source I chose is because you dont read sources supplied, so why bother to give you a more scientific source. Another reason is because you dont reciprocate by adding sources to back up your preconceived notio... [More]

Too bad it did not include sparse counties with lower populations. Like Adams county in Washington where they are seen on nearly a daily basis.
