As you may or may not know, for the last several months I’ve been checking out and referencing the website for the National UFO Reporting Center. I guess you could say I’m a little nosey when it comes to space, UFO’s, and extraterrestrials. Now, I’m not going to mislead you. NUFORC has nothing to do with extraterrestrials, I like to visit the site see what strange things people report seeing in our skies.
If you haven’t visited the site yet, NUFORC is the place where people go to report sightings, and believe me, some of those reports are fascinating.
The site itself had gone through several upgrades and changes recently, which made my job researching a lot easier. It looks like they have a new home page and added some tabs, but the best part really has to do with the organization of the report files. They are now broken down into categories so you search according to event date, by state, by UFO shape, and by date posted.
NUFORC has been in operation for 47 years and has logged 150,000 UFO sightings. In case you’re wondering, California is the state with most reported sightings; over 15,000!
