California Led U.S. with 490 UFO Sightings in 2017
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.
A recent report came from New Mexico on December 14. A woman reported that she and her husband saw a triangular object with bright green lights near Santa Fe. She claims they "saw an object flying across the Interstate in a southeasterly direction. It appeared triangular with bright green lights around its entire periphery."
"From my husband's perspective, it appeared larger than a full moon," she reported. "By the time it crossed my field of vision (I was in the passenger seat), it appeared slightly smaller than a full moon. It was perhaps several hundred feet in front and above us and appeared to be moving at about 100 mph or less. It seemed to be heading down and then it vanished."
NUFORC spoke with the witness via telephone and "found her to be very eloquent, and very sober-minded. We suspect that she is an excellent witness."
NEXT: The Number of UFO Sightings by StateCalifornia far and away submitted the most reports of UFO sightings, topping the list with 490 in 2017. Florida was next with 308, followed by Washington (192), Arizona(180), and New York (170). New Mexico, home to the famous 1947 UFO sighting in Roswell, came in at number 25 with 73 reported sightings. Perhaps surprisingly, Nevada, where the legendary Area 51 is located, reported only 55 sightings, coming in at number 29 overall. N. Dakota, Hawaii, and S. Dakota had the fewest reports, with 6, 13, and 16 respectively.

Some recent reports out of California include: an "orange light flying in the sky that was changing direction very rapidly" in Sacramento; "a small, quiet, blinking object; it's movements were very smooth, unlike a plane or a helicopter" in Carmichael; a "group of about 25 chevron shaped crafts all glowing a soft orange color" in Daly City; a "large, dull red-colored, round object with a darker brownish glow around the outside going very fast" in Watsonville; and a "RED light seen at night gliding together and lights disappearing one by one along with sound" in Hawthorn.
Mufon Flooded with UFO Reports Tonight
UPDATED: 12/10/17 3:44pm
The strange lights in the sky were caused by C-17s performing a multi-state military exercise, not UFOs. Below is a reference of a what a C-17 formation looks like. This video is from another date. Read the full story here
Multiple reports are flooding Mufon tonight from Colorado, Kansas, Texas and more. Witnesses are reporting multiple flashing red lights flying in a straight line across the sky.
This is what 9 news in Denver had to say:
The 9NEWS newsroom has received well over a dozen phone calls, emails and messages about a series of single-file lights that flew over the Cherry Creek/Washington Park area of the metro.
At this time, 9NEWS has put in calls to the FAA and the Air Force to try and figure out what these may have been.
The Federal Aviation Authority says surely they were aircraft of some kind - they would need more information to be able to pin down exactly what type of aircraft they were and what they were doing.
The Centennial Airport has said they don't know what it was. They did track a single plane over the area - but nothing like the pictures and videos out there.
We'll update you when we hear back from the Air Force.

(0:30 on is slowed down and closer up) Taken on December 9th, at just after 9:00pm. 13+ lights, mostly red but a few white flew in a long line across the sky, and got closer together the further west they traveled before disappearing over the horizon.
Published on Dec 9, 2017
Saw a huge meteor or "shooting star" over Denver, then a few minutes after this happened. Looked like planes of helicopters. But why so close to each other. At least a dozen craft counted.
UFO Spotted In Kasganj, Uttar Pradesh
A UFO was spotted by in India. I can't confirm the validity of this UFO sighting, but by the looks of this photo it's fake. I'm not one to call out hoaxes, but I'll let you guys decide. Below is a link to the alleged sighting.

Screaming Family Flees Hovering UFO
A vacationing family in La Rinconada, Argentina reported a UFO sighting that they say left them terrified and running for dear life. They also claim they have photographic proof of the encounter because one member of the fambam snapped a pic of the object. The only problem with their report is, researchers aren't believing it.
The South American "Griswold's", as I like to call them, since they want to remain anonymous, say they noticed a "flying saucer" as they watched a group of bikers cross a bridge.
But many UFO researchers are declaring shenanigans after hearing the "South American Griswold's" report. They say something doesn't add up. Some are saying it was a case of mistaken identity and what they witnessed was a lenticular cloud. Some are saying it was a fabrication.
A researcher believing the report was a fabrication was quoted saying:
"I have witnessed UFOs before, several times, once with dozens of soldiers in the parking lot. None of us panicked...none of us said...run!
"Usually people stare as long as possible, trying to understand what they are seeing." "I have witnessed UFOs before, several times, once with dozens of soldiers in the parking lot. None of us panicked...none of us said...run!
I have to agree with this man. When I had my massive craft encounter, I just stood there with no emotion. I was just trying to figure out what the heck I was looking at.
UFO encounters like the one the "Griswold's" are claiming to have doesn't happen like it does in the movies. Nine times out of 10 the witnesses never run because by the time they figure out what they're looking at, the craft is already on its way out.

Mass UFO Sighting
Witnesses in California and Nevada reported seeing a UFO that was seen from Las Vegas, Nevada to California. Officials eventually confirmed it was space junk.
NASA and US Officials made a statement about the alleged mass UFO sighting. They claim it was not a UFO, but a Russian SL4 rocket that re-entered the atmosphere above Arizona.
I'm not convinced the response given by US Officials is totally legit. I don't think it was a UFO, but I think something seems a little fishy, and I'm not the only one.
Many who witnessed the event were not convinced it was rocket. Witnesses were reporting that what they say was a crashing UFO or missiles being fired.

Nick Jonas Discusses His UFO Sightings
Disney star Nick Jonas recently discussed his UFO Sighings on two talk shows, Late Night with Seth Meyers and The Morning on UK's ITV.
In his interview on The Morning , Jonas explained that his sighting took place eight years ago. "I was in my backyard in L.A., and I looked up at the sky and [saw] three flying saucers," He thought he was losing his mind. "I looked at my friend and said, 'Are you seeing this or am I losing my mind?'"
Jonas added, "He was seeing the same thing. Then I went online and looked and there were three identical sightings, two weeks before." He claims that he is officially on alien alert. "I'm really excited to get back to LA; I leave in a couple of hours, and I'm going to go try find a UFO," he joked. "I'm very excited."

Multiple UFO Sightings Were Reported All Over The World During Last Night's Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse
Multiple UFO'S Were Seen All Over The World
During Last Night's Rare Lunar Eclipse
Millions of people gathered yesterday to catch a glimpse of the rare lunar eclipse. The Blood Moon was the most anticipate event this September. People worldwide anxiously waited, cameras in hand, ready, for the arrival of the eclipse.
The lunar eclipse was nothing short than spectacular, but some claimed they witnessed something even more spectacular. Many reported seeing unexplained aerial phenomenon during the eclipse. As the blood moon began to make its grand debut, unidentified flying objects in different parts of the world ended up stealing the show.
In different parts of the world people reported seeing unidentified flying objects fly by the moon as if extraterrestrials were auditioning for new sequel to Spielberg's E.T., the long awaited sequel. Mufon's website received quite a few reports. I posted just a few of the reports as a bit of a teaser. I urge you to go to Mufon and look at all the different cases. Maybe more were reported.
Mutual UFO Network Reports Sept 27-28, 2015
9/28/15 Carson, MI:
We were driving home talking. There were 3 of us and we spotted 3 glowing lights in the sky in a triangle formation at first stayed still then slowly moved together uniformly into on light formation like a star. Then a 4 th glowing light started to head towards the other light and came together and then it disappeared. The lights in the sky was the first thing I saw. I thought at first it was a light tower. My feeling was excitement but also a sense of calm feeling. It was a amazing event to witness and thought that we were suppose to see those lights. We sat and waited to see if they would come back and nothing. It was quiet and silent. No sounds of airplanes. The objects disappeared after that all came together like a flame that was put out. There were 4 lighted objects total.
9/27/15 Lawrence, MA:
I was on the back yard of the house, lay down on a hammock, see some planes passing, then start light object was coming in straight line from west to east staring at 35 degrees or 40 for about 2 minutes then went it was at 75 degree start slow down and make a 90 degrees turn to north 3second after 90 degrees east then make like a circle and stop then I see a disc shape object hovering in the same place, then an airplane came front south to north and the UFO start going straight up till disappear. no plane do 90 degrees turn at that speed.
9/28/15 Franklin, OH:
My boyfriend was looking outside and called for me to come look, I ran outside and there were two large circular fire ball looking lights in the sky, they darted around erratically and would glow very brightly then get dimmer. The second ball merged into the first one and it glowed very brightly and then dimmed and then looked as if it evaporated completely. I waited for a few minutes but it never came back and I saw nothing else in the sky. I saw a regular plane fly overhead maybe 5 minutes later and recognized that immediately. While watching the light I felt mezmerised and curious.
9/27/15: Salem, MA:
I was at the university watching the blood moon. My attention got diverted as I was alone cold and bored so I looked the polite side of the moon. When I noticed a very large about 100ft size triangular plane flying southbound from where I was standing. When I first saw the object I thought it was and airplane but when I focused my eyes on the object I realized it was triangular and the lights were not set up as a regular plane. There was no blinking red light the passenger planes have and it was a matte black. So it easy blended with the night but the lights were bright . It moved in a linear direction and it was very large no where near the size of a drone. It didn't move erratically or any fdiffrently except that it was quicker than an airplane. My initial feeling when I realized it was nothing like a plane was to point it out to someone near me. I asked a girl sitting next to me and had to point it out to her since everyone was looking at the direction of the moon. She was shocked and confirmed my suspicioun that it was like nothing we have seen before. Since I was taking photographs of the moon I had my iPad ready to photograph the ufo. I knew that without evidence I wouldn't be in denial of what I had seen. So I tried to snap pictures but it was too fast for the camera to focus and I couldn't see the details I saw with my naked eye to to the objects color blending in with the night. I got one picture that was decent-ish. I only got to take two pictures and it was gone. Quickly I sent a Skype message to my brother telling him that I saw what appeared to be a UFO. I lost sight of the object when a building got in the way as it traveled southward. I believe there were only 1 other witness other than myself because I didn't see anyone in the crowd of students looking bewildered or saying anything even though there were about 50 students there. They were all facing the moon which was east of me and the object was west of me on the opposite direction. The only other person who noticed was the girl whom I pointed it out to.
9/27/15 Dana Point, CA:
I was at the beach in Dana Point viewing the lunar eclipse with my husband and many other Dana Point residents were there, too. Because we were all looking up to see the moon, we all saw this low hovering formation of nine bright lights. The lights were in a formation then they moved slowly into a couple different formations--someone said it looked like they were trying to make constellations. After doing this for a few minutes, they moved off into the distance, into a small cluster. Then they got into a line and eventually were so small they couldn't be seen anymore. Strangest thing I've ever seen.
9/27/15 Corona, CA:
At 8:40 pm, I was watching the blood moon, and when I looked up at the stars I was startled to see 3 lights in a triangle formation, going north. It appeared that they were in orbit above the earth. If satellite travels at 15,000 mph, then these were travelling at twice that speed.
There was no jet noise, no sonic booms. Obviously travelling in orbit above earth. There was a great distance between the 3 objects lights that were travelling.
I don't believe in UFOs. But I do report what I saw.
9/27/15 Lincoln, AR:
My wife and I were sitting on the back deck with our children watching the Supermoon/Lunar Eclipse. At 9:43, the kids had just gone inside when my wife and I saw a triangular craft directly in the sight of the moon. The craft had blue and red lights blinking rapidly, and there were stationary lights shining on the bottom. While in sight of the moon, the craft maneuvered with 90 degree angles and what seemed like sharp figure 8 motions. A few seconds after moving sporadically, the craft stabilized and flew in a straight line out of sight. Besides the impressive maneuvering, the triangular craft moved at a rate of speed seeming faster than what a jet would. The craft looked solid with its triangular shape.
Ministry Of Defense Covering Up UFO Sighting
Involving 14 Child Witnesses
Nick Pope!! Niiiick Pooooope!! This looks like a job for Nick Pope! Where is Nick Pope when we need him? I love watching interviews with Mr. Pope. He begins every interview the same way. "Hi, I'm Nick Pope. I worked for the ministry of defense." Ahh.. . I love him too pieces.
I can't get enough of his delightful prim and proper accent. He's so damn fancy and sophisticated. If I ever get a chance to meet speak with him one on one, I'll make sure to serve tea with crumpets and a side of Grey Poupon.
