Thanks for posting that list.

Seems to be quite a few in the UK, but I hadn't heard of any of them via the news channels.

Hal, you can use MUFON's sighting map to review UK reports. Go to the url below, click full screen and scroll over to England. If you play around with it a bit, you'll get the hang of it. You can click on each map icon to read that report. You can see summaries listed on the lower part of the page.

I wonder what the stats would look like in June and July - the hot months for historical UFO activities.

The question for the May sightings was: Which states represent the USA with respect to the listed UFO sightings?

I don't know.

You don't know? Well, we must take a look why is it so that you don't know...

http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/04/28/article-2614899-1D6C31A800000578-240_634x403.jpg

Oh, I know now!!! Just get that stupid probing needle out of my face! (Everyone come to their senses pretty quickly. LOL.)

This is how it goes: There are 50 states and so we solve this equation.

50 = U + F + O

It actually amounts to solving the UFO acronym.

U____?
F____?
O____?


There are three options:

U(tah)
F(lorida)
O(hio)


or

U(tah)
F(lorida)
O(klahoma)


or

U(tah)
F(lorida)
O(regon)


The May UFO sightings in those states is as follows:

Utah = 4
Florida = 32
Ohio = 13
Oklahoma = 5
Oregon = 14


Since Utah + Florida = 36 sightings, it follows that we need 14 sightings to solve the 50 = U + F + O equation. That number of sightings was reported from Oregon and so,

Q: 50 = U + F + O

A: 50 = 4 + 32 + 14 = Utah + Florida + Oregon


Why did it work that way in May?

That's because the 2x3 matrix:

UFO
MAY


There is no other name of a month with only three letters.

This 2x3 matrix

UFO
RAF


was used to mess with the Royal Air Force, but I don't remember how it goes.

If you stop playing stupid numbers adding games long enough to read the whole posting of the May sightings you will find, at the bottom of the countries listing...

How does the "State Number of Reports" invalidate the number of sightings reported?
huh

There is something you should have pointed out instead; it concerns the title "UFO Sightings Reports..." The title should have read "Alleged UFO Sightings Reports..." Or do you really believe that the figure was higher for each listed location, because MUFON specialists sifted through and included in the Report only those sightings which could be according to the MUFON metodology classified without any doubt as UFOs?

What is the purpose of such data accumulation, when no further analysis follows? It resembles records of folks attending church services in different places. Maybe MUFON just plays some stupid number game...

Travex,

The purpose of any data collection is to look for trends and try to establish emerging patterns.
The ufo phenomena is particularly difficult in this respect as the sightings are few and far between. also one can't predict where they will be.
Studying the data will indicate where the most likely places to be are to be found. Then maybe anyone wanting to improve their chances of seeing something could move to that area and set up monitoring equipment.


...It resembles records of folks attending church services...

Which would be of value to any priest or vicar etc who wanted to see how the strength of the congregations was progressing.

Would you not agree ?
