UFO Sightings Skyrocket in US

Apparently, a lot of Americans have killed time during the pandemic by watching the skies.

UFO sightings have skyrocketed in the United States over the past year, according to officials with the Mutual UFO Network. And investigator Rob Swiatek says many of the people who saw them described what appeared to be the same spacecraft. “Whatever that object is, it’s made many appearances over the U.S. lately,” Swiatek says.

California leads the country in sightings with 584 reported over the past year, according to the UFO Network. Florida is second with 323, followed by Texas and New York, with 288 and 270 sightings, respectively. And rounding out the top five is Pennsylvania, where 193 sightings have been reported.
