From: UFO UpDates - Toronto <post.nul> Date: Sat, 15 Oct 2011 09:49:31 -0400 Archived: Sat, 15 Oct 2011 09:49:31 -0400 Subject: Where The UFOs Source: OpenMinds.tv http://www.openminds.tv/ufo-hotspots-805/ Oct 12, 2011 Where The UFOs Are: UFO Hotspots Alejandro Rojas Live Science recently published an infographic showing the 10 states that have reported the most UFO sightings using data from the National UFO reporting Center (NUFORC) in Seattle. I updated my MUFON spreadsheets for a recent article in order to analyze a spike in UFO sighting reports from this past August received by the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). With the data already at my fingertips, I decided to also take a look at how MUFON’s data stacked up to NUFORC’s. I took it a step further to refine the data and deduce where the true hotspots can be found. Although MUFON has been around since 1969, the data I have is from their online reporting website, which was only started in mid-2006. Some of the old paper files have been imported into the online database. Even though NUFORC, which began in 1994, is a one man show ran by Peter Davenport and headquartered in an abandoned missile silo, up until recent years he used to receive more reports than MUFON. Now MUFON, with thousands of members and hundreds of certified investigators all over the country, receives around 500 sightings per month, although there has been a recent increase.
