Research Claims UFOs Are Getting More Difficult To Spot


It might be one of the blurred kind close encounters.

Researchers are puzzled with the new research that suggests UFO sightings in the US tend to move in fluctuating cycles for six to seven years and a permanent downtrend.

The International UFO Congress researcher of the year Cheryl Costa found out that there are 7, 837 average sightings in the country, a massive 41 per cent drop from the three-year peak average years.

Costa explained her findings in the Syracuse New Times that the UFO sightings rise to a peak during the cycles, went back to the baseline, and initiate a new cycle with a rise.

Based on her findings from National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) and Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), Costa wrote that the US had a peak average of 13,500 annual UFO sightings between 2012 and 2014.

In 2015, however, sightings fell 11,975 to 11 per cent and an even more dramatic drop in 2016, falling to 10,602 to 21 per cent.

Costa did not discover a concrete reason for the significant decline in sightings. However, she speculated that broadband Internet access had something to do with it.

Costa wrote that from 2001 to 2006, they see relatively flat sighting report numbers. The flatness is deemed to be an artefact of reporting because of the broadband Internet access was still growing in almost all areas. Broadband access is a significant driver in people having routine use of web reporting services such as MUFON and NUFORC.

The New York state rose to the fourth-most likely place to see a UFO during 2016 and 2017, Costa noted, but the number of sightings sharply declined from its peak average in 20017 at 325 sightings down form an average of 577 between 2012 and 2014.

Costa wrote that both New York state and the national charts reveal the classic rise-and-fall scenario from 2006 to 2010 and the spike started again in 2011.

She also explained that the Mayan Calendar media ballyhoo could be attributed to the spike in 2012, causing more people to become more curious about what’s going on in our skies. With that into consideration, from 2011 to 2017 the classic UFO sighting cycle is clearly seen.

  1. What is wrong is the traditional reporting organizations are first bias, corrupted in my opinion, and a lot of people no longer report there, and second, geoengineering, solar radiation reduction or whatever euphamism you wish to use to cover up the term “ChemTrails” (the intentional poisoning of our air) is causing it to be more and more difficult to even see the sky. Clear “blue sky” and stars at night, are more a thing of lore niw and becoming legend of the elderly. In northern US I recall as a child of the 1960’s the daytime having literally, fluorescent, blue skies, and black bag full of millions of sparkling diamonds at night. Now if you are lucky enough to catch a day of blue skies (more often hazy grey) even these “clear” skies, have a milky white high altitude haze, and at night, that haze remains making a lot of the stars invisible. Between chemtrails, pollution and light pollution, are by my estimates even in very rural areas, reduced by at least half what was visible to me as a child or even young adult, the last ten years, I might even go so far as to say 60-80% of the dimmer stars are now, no longer even visible. If one cannot see the stars, how can one see that that alleged ‘sattelite’ in orbit hung a left turn or circled back the way it came? If reports are indeed lower which I actually doubt, the reason is, peoples mistrust of the very organizations that are supposed to be reporting on this and of course, the sky being made more invisible every day by chemtrailing.

    • You’d be welcome to come to rural Saskatchewan Canada, we have the clearest blue skies and a dizzying arrsy of star at night. 🙂

  2. It’s nothing to do with UFO’s lessening their appearance. It is all to do with the Press and Media and those who control them being instructed and in some cases forced to refrain from publishing the events and details of their presence and manifestations.

  3. How you can promote such stupid film? UFO’s are much more frequent seen over the sky than the last 5 years and even at lower altitudes than before. The number of unexplained objects, goes way upper than the “known 5%”, mentioned even this stupid thing, on all televised UFO shows. 🙂 Common guys watch the sky more often than your iphones 😀
