OK here is a look at the increase in UFO sightings by state!

The rise in MUFON reports – for some states – appears to have begun sometime in July 2011 and continued throughout August 2011 – and many states saw their average monthly report numbers double or triple (or more) in August.


The following are example state monthly statistics. The first number shows the average number of UFO reports in that state for January 1, 2011, through July 31, 2011. The second number is the actual number of UFO reports from that state for August 2011. The percentage is the increase between the state’s average seven-month number, and the August number. This data is followed by the total number of reports for the first 12 days in September; and finally, if that state remains: at the same rate, a predictor number for total September reports


California, 50.85 (7-month average), 127 August reports, (249.75 percent increase). Cases through September 12 is 40. Predicting: 100 September cases.


Colorado, 9.85 (7-month average), 29 August reports, (194.41 percent increase). Cases through September 12 is 9. Predicting: 22 September cases.


Connecticut, 3.28 (7-month average), 38 August reports, (1058.53 percent increase). Cases through September 12 is 2. Predicting: 5 September cases.


Florida, 20.71 (7-month average), 69 August reports, (233.17 percent increase). Cases through September 12 is 11. Predicting 27 September cases.


Kentucky, 8.71 (7-month average), 22 August reports, (152.58 percent increase). Cases through September 12 is 4. Predicting 10 September cases.


Michigan, 16 (7-month average), 44 August reports, (175 percent increase). Cases through September 12 is 20. Predicting 50 September cases.


Missouri, 10 (7-month average), 39 August reports, (290 percent increase). Cases through September 12 is 11. Predicting 27 September cases.


New York, 11.71 (7-month average), 46 August reports, (292.82 percent increase). Cases through September 12 is 20. Predicting 50 September cases.


North Carolina, 7.57 (7-month average), 19 August reports, (150.99 percent increase). Cases through September 12 is 7. Predicting 17 September cases.


Ohio, 11.28 (7-month average), 38 August reports, (236.87 percent increase). Cases through September 12 is 10. Predicting 25 September cases.


Pennsylvania, 19 (7-month average), 62 August reports (226.31 percent increase). Cases through September 12 is 17. Predicting 42 September reports.


Texas, 28.57 (7-month average), 59 August reports (106.51 percent). Cases through September 12 is 26. Predicting 65 September cases.


Almost all states were affected in the recent report increase – evenWyoming with a mere four UFO reports between January 1, and July 31, 2011, had five reports in August. It could be that MUFON experienced a brief – possibly six-week reports increase – and things are settling down – well, for most states at least.

So if you are trying to get your significant other to take a vacation, maybe a ranch in Wyoming or the beaches of California and you want to tie it into a little UFO watching you now know where to go!
