UFO Maps

I'm surprised that I haven't come across this before: a Google-maps rendering of UFO sightings in the US, dynamically updated as-it-happens. Preliminary perusal seems to indicate that UFOs tend to stay away from the landlocked mountains, preferring to pop by the Pacific Northwest, the California coastline, and, in droves, the East Coast and the area immediately around the Great Lakes. For those of us who "believe" that even a fraction of these sightings may be the real deal, this map is an interesting asset and may tell us some valuable things about our visitors; for those of us who don't, this is a powerful illustration of human folly, and that's pretty compelling, too.

I have to wonder what a global map would look like. Do the aliens think our "Great Lakes" are the communications hub of Life On Earth (L.O.E.)?

We are after all the Water Planet (W.P.)?

Is L.O.E. on the W.P. worth writing (alien) home about??

Such a map begs the question.

global map... mexico city = grand central station

Ooh, awesome.

It would be cool to see an archive. Or a map of Project Blue Book's findings.

I have a poster of that banner ufo on my wall.

have u ever noticed they only go by water strange huh

steve reich had interesting theories on why UFOs might be associated with water bodies. the literature on catalina island with USO's is captivating enough, but not nearly as strange as Kenneth arnolds visit to puget sound after the sightings and happenings there. but of course theres plenty of history in places like the southwest too.

if anyone is ever in upstate new york, on your way from the city to come visit me in albany, stop in the pine bush area and check out the stone chambers,mega old structures and monoliths constructed in a medium the indigenous cultures here have no history of working with..that area has a rich history of sightings for this region, also located near an airforce base, hmm..http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread497643/pg1
