The theme of the 2016 MUFON Symposium is “From Our Oceans to Outer Space.” This theme embodies the idea that UFO and UAPs, or unidentified aerial phenomena, aren’t just something we see in the sky, but something we see or experience in our oceans, lakes and waterways.
It’s always interesting to me when people tell me they imagine all the high-volume UFO/UAP sightings occur in the desert regions. While researching my paper for the symposium, “The National UFO/UAP Sighting Magnitude Study” I quickly became aware that UFO/UAP sightings seem to cluster near major bodies of water. Huge numbers of sightings have been reported on both of New York’s coasts and throughout the Great Lakes region.
Here in New York state, UFO/UAP sightings seem to cluster around Lake Erie, Lake Ontario and along the St. Lawrence Seaway. In addition, UFO/UAP sightings tend to group down the length of the Hudson Valley and are reported all over Long Island. The illustration below shows just how much UFO/UAP activity is going on around the borders of New York state along the lines of our major bodies of water and waterways.
Human thinking and logic might make a snap judgement and give a straight-forward reason for this activity: they want our water or something in it. But until we finally meet our alien visitors, we really won’t know their logic for hanging out near our waterways.
Lastly, for the gal who wrote and asked me about UFO/UAP sightings around New York state’s Finger Lakes region, I’m sorry to report that the honest truth is the Finger Lakes region is relatively scant for UFO/UAP sighting reports. Nobody knows why!
Perhaps after disclosure, we’ll be able to find out why the visitors seemed to congregate around major bodies of water.
Let’s look at some recent UFO/UAP sightings in New York skies:
June 25, 2016: At 9 a.m. a resident of Commack observed a bright orange flying object over his town.
June 30, 2016: At 7 p.m. a student pilot from Belleville reported an unexplained flying disk.
July 1, 2016: At 9:30 p.m. a resident of Kerhonkson in Ulster County reported a bright, flashing light in the northern skies of the Catskills.
July 3, 2016: At 9:30 p.m. a resident of Wingdale reported several dim lights moving back and forth, countering each other in the eastern sky.
