Florida, California and New York remain some of the top places in the United States to see a UFO.
Maryland has certainly seen an above average share of UFO sightings in recent years - that is, at least, according to the latest figures released by the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

The Mid-Atlantic state has seen recorded sightings dating back as far as 1946 and as recently as last month, with witnesses describing all manner of shapes and characteristics ranging from fireballs shooting across the sky to flashing diamond-shaped and oval-shaped objects that change shape.

Some of the witnesses waited years before finally deciding to report what they'd seen.
"It's heartening to me that so many people are coming forward now," director Peter Davenport told WJZ. "We are getting significantly more reports than just six months or a year ago."

"I don't know what the future has in store for us, but I am encouraged that more people are coming forward and the government recognizes the UFO phenomenon that's something worthy of their attention."

NUFORC's UFO sightings database can be viewed - here.

Those aren't UFO's, they're the ghosts of all the people who've been murdered in Baltimore playing ring-a-rosy in the sky.

California, Florida, New York, ya the most populous states. makes sense. And Maryland makes sense too! Because that's where the President of the US of A lives and the Aliens want to keep a close eye on him.

Maryland, home of Joint Base Andrews and the Naval Surface Warfare Center just to name a few military bases in the region. Bases and activities that house various aerial platforms, manned and unmanned. But yes, yes of course it's ET. It's always ET. Has to be.

I heard news (yahoo) one week prior. I've got relatives there and didn't hear anything. So assume this was slight exaggeration. That UFO's haven't gone wild in MD or idk attacked Annapolis.
