UFO sightings by state

One would expect sightings to closely track population, assuming that UFO sightings can be attributed to random drunkenness or something like that.

But we see that there are surprisingly few sightings in Texas compared to states with much smaller populations such as Arizona

One possibility is that UFOs are less likely to be spotted in cities because there is too much light pollution in cities to notice strange lights in the sky. But I don’t know that Texas is any more urban than Arizona (where most of the population lives in the Phoenix metropolitan area).

  1. The whole UFO thing in the media is a psy-op that was supposed to be rolled out because Hillary was supposed to win. A lot of stuff this year is supposed to coincide with Hillary winning. Podesta was involved with all this UFO non-sense. They are trying to project bluebeam us and it will fail. Land a craft on the White House lawn and do a demonstration and I will believe it, otherwise more fake non-sense. Lion, read Passport to Magonia and you will no longer be be that interested in UFOs except to see how they are used against the people of planet Earth by actual aliens or the CIANiggers.

    • In case anyone’s wondering what “project bluebeam” is (I was), this is from the Wiki-page “Serge Monast”:

      “In 1994, he published Project Blue Beam (NASA), in which he detailed his claim that NASA, with the help of the United Nations, was attempting to implement a New Age religion with the Antichrist at its head and start a New World Order, via a technologically simulated Second Coming of Christ. He also gave talks on this topic.[3] Other conspiracy theorists have noted[4] the similarity of Project Blue Beam to the plots of Gene Roddenberry’s unreleased 1975 Star Trek movie treatment The God Thing and the 1991 Star Trek: The Next Generation episode Devil’s Due.

      “In 1995, he published his most detailed work, Les Protocoles de Toronto (6.6.6), modelled upon The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, wherein he said a Masonic group called “6.6.6” had, for twenty years, been gathering the world’s powerful to establish the New World Order and control the minds of individuals.”

      • Ah, now that we have that clear…

      • The idea of project bluebeam has sort of taken on a life of its own to mean “any faked supernatural event to create a one world government”. This can mean faking God or faking an alien invasion. A fake alien invasion or contact and the so called media and leaders would immediately call for a one world government.

  2. I guess the extraterrestrials love hovering over California so much, because Hollywood likes to portray them as space invaders. Then there’s the tech savvy geeks who work and reside in Silicon Valley and they share the same passion for technology/communication. The other 49 states with their proles who work mostly in primitive trades and agriculture, and the value transference parasites that hug the Northeast corridor just aren’t remarkable to them in the grand scheme of things.

    • And Florida has 308 sightings ranked 2nd below California. Well, they’re getting ready to zap that cesspool off the map and this will do America a big favor. No more dingleberries will be migrating from the Caribbean.

      • I had multiple abduction experiences as a young child (actually since they weren’t scary I guess they are classified as contactee experiences), this would have been 1976 florida. I would recite in detail the events to my family, they teased me mercilessly about it. When we moved from FL the ‘abductions’ stopped.

        I’m personally on the fence about it, as real as the experiences seemed. The interesting thing is my exposure to pop culture was nil- we weren’t allowed to watch tv and went to the movies exactly once, to see the disney snow white, so I couldn’t have gotten the idea from a movie/ tv show.

        The current president of FIDE claims to have been abducted in 1997… lol:

      • So what happened, toomanyspiders? What did they look like? They weren’t Seminole Guardian Swamp-Spirits or Hippies or old retired Jewish Bohemian Communists? I hope they didn’t take you anywhere, even if they were nice and gave you snacks — that would have been Wrong (unless they had your parents’ permission). It’s probably okay for Grownup Aliens to chat with someone else’s child for a short period of time, but there are Limits.

  3. So three of the highest per capita states are three of the northernmost states, WA, MT and VT. And the sightings go up when people are driving home from work which for those states will be dark 5 mos of the year. I guess headlights or other lights reflecting off something, maybe clouds. Either that or airplane lights (which are bright at low altitudes arriving or landing).

    I’d be curious to see a graph of sightings by proximity to airports and radio towers (that now carry more lights b/c of recent FAA rules).

  4. Top secret projects, both foreign and domestic, are often mistaken for UFOs. People with loose lips would lose their job and/or face jail time.

  5. Lion: Protests in Iran. Real or hype? Good for Israel or bad?

    Otis: what are they saying on the leftist sites?

  6. Arizona is one of the leaders in “dark sky compliance” whereby there are municipal mandates for no uplight in outdoor lighting, I.e. light pollution. There’s an NGO pretending to referee lighting products that is based there for example:

    I was told AZ takes this seriously because of the observatories in the state.

    • So the point is that modern people don’t know what a real night sky looks like?

      BTW the observatories in AZ are awesome. Go visit Mt. Lemmon & Kitt Peak.


      December 31, 2017 at 1:14 PM

    • NYS would be the opposite of AZ, where outdoor lighting is ubiquitous, yet only 10 fewer ppl reported seeing an UFO in this state. What gives!

  7. The best explanation of UFOs is the electric universe one: UFOs are natural plasma events caused by charged particles by the sun. Sure a lot of the EU stuff is batty, but this one is pretty straightforward.

    If you’ve ever seen the northern lights in full force then a few balls of light are easy to accept.

    Northern lights:

    Plasma UFO theory:

    1561 event in the sky (again probably atmospheric plasma):

    Battle of LA:

    Scientists don’t like using electric plasma to explain things because it’s too difficult to model mathematically.

    They get theories which explain past events but can’t predict future events beyond “might happen again some time”.

  8. Very interesting. Is there a map for countries around the world? UFOlogy is big in Latin countries.


    December 31, 2017 at 2:05 PM

    • If the strange lights are caused by craft flying at super sonic speeds, physics says there should be a sonic boom. Due to lawsuits, it is illegal for aircraft to fly supersonic over the US. I am attaching a link to a web site that tracks strange noises … theoretically they should correlate with “supersonic UFOs.

  9. What about proximity to military installations where secret weapons/aircraft testing is being conducted? The western United States has far more of these installations, and it would seem that could help explain why Arizona and Nevada are so high on the list.
