Lecture: UFO National Statistics and Trends
On 24 April 2017 a New York Times – Science Magazine headline read “People Are Seeing U.F.O.s Everywhere, and This Book Proves It” Cheryl and Linda Costa compiled and wrote that book and are here to share the results of their Big Data UFO statistical study about UFO sighting reports spanning 2001 through 2015. They will cover National, State and County level statistics. They will answer questions about what month and day of the week UFOs are most and least reported. Lots of people think they know where all the UFOs are reported but 9 times out of ten they’re wrong. The TRUTH is in the numbers!
