We want to believe: Americans reported a UFO sighting every few hours in 2018


LOS ANGELES (CIRCA) — There’s something out there. At least that’s what more than half of America believes when it comes to the existence of UFOs.

According to the National UFO Reporting Center in Davenport, Washington, Americans reported 3,664 sightings of unidentified flying objects in 2018—about one report every 2 1/2 hours. The center makes no claims as to the validity of the information in any of these reports.

Do aliens exist?

According to the site’s database, California reported the most sightings, followed by Florida and Washington state.

Recent polling by Scott Rasmussen found that 37 percent of Americans say it’s very likely there’s life somewhere else in the galaxy. And another 30 percent say it’s somewhat likely.

Video from 2015 released earlier this year appears to show a Navy pilot locking in on a high-speed, unidentified object flying over water at a low altitude. Over the radio, he says it “looked like a UFO.”

Dec. 12, Pleasant Hill, Missouri: “I observed a round circular silver metalic object traveling E overhead in the clouds, then race extremely fast.”

July 26, S. George Island, Florida: “Large craft with amber lights fades into and out of view, as if it had a cloaking device. And another chevron shape with red lights.”

Feb. 23, Wenatchee, Washington: "I noticed ... 3 lights forming a massive triangle these were moving fairly slow but perfectly in unison with each other, then right next to it there was another one and behind it another one, there were about 5 to 6 giant triangles that I saw all moving together. ... I ran inside and grabbed my camera and tried to get a picture of the formation but could only get 2 lights in the pictures I took."

Jan. 23, Eugene, Oregon: "It looked like combat at near satellite altitude. There were several white flashes of different intensity. First traveling west to east, then turning north"
