The National UFO Alert Rating System has been updated with California, Florida, and Texas taking a UFO Alert 3 with 30 or more UFO reports during the month of November 2010 filed with the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). Michigan, Arizona, Indiana, Illinois, Georgia, and Tennessee were placed in a UFO Alert 4 with 15 or more cases reported in November. New Jersey, Missouri, Ohio, and Pennsylvania have been designated "Watch States."

MUFON released November statistics December 1, where the total number of reported UFO sightings are listed by state. The UFO Examiner uses these statistics to rate states. The entire country was moved back to the lowest alert level - UFO Alert 5.

California was the leading UFO report state - with 65 cases - and remain in the UFO Alert 3 status with Florida, 38 reports, and Texas, 33 reports.

Those states with 15 or more reports, which fall into a UFO Alert 4 status are: Michigan, 23; Arizona, 22; Indiana, 22; Illinois, 16; Georgia, 16; and Tennessee, 15.

While all other states move to a UFO Alert 5 status, we are also designating the following states in our Watch Group: New Jersey, 14; Missouri, 14; Ohio, 14; Pennsylvania, 13.

The most interesting UFO reports do not necessarily come from high reporting states - but those states with higher numbers do account for some of the most interesting evidence to study. While UFO sightings seem to pop up randomly around the country, this list is meant to offer a small insight into where Americans are filing reports.
