And how in the world, or out of it, has Manhattan racked up New York State's second-highest tally of U.F.O. sightings in this century?
These questions and many others emerge from the first comprehensive statistical summary of so-called close encounters: 121,036 eyewitness accounts, organized county by county in each state and the District of Columbia, from 2001 to 2015.
The unlikely compendium, "U.F.O. Sightings Desk Reference," is the work of a couple in Syracuse, who crunched unruly data on U.F.O. reports collected by two volunteer organizations: the Mutual U.F.O. Network, or Mufon, and the National U.F.O. Reporting Center, or Nuforc.

"Through all stages of human history, intellectual authorities have pronounced their supremacy by ridiculing or suppressing elements of reality that imply didn't fit within the framework of accepted knowledge. Are we really any different today? Have we really changed our acceptance towards things that won't fit the frame? Maybe there are concepts of our reality that we have yet to understand, and if we open our eyes maybe we will see that something significant has been overlooked."- Terje Toftene (taken from his film, "The Day Before Disclosure")
Well, judging by the fact that TED continues to censor information, perhaps not. TED even banned a talk by the co-founder of a 23-year government research program investigating parapsychology at Stanford Research Institute for the CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency, Air Force and Army Intelligence, NASA, and others.

The woman had exhibited "inexplicable behaviour" since 2007, including fits, stiffening, and other "unusual phenomena", a Milan court heard. Her husband attributed the episodes to "demonic possession".
Her sister, as well as a priest and a Capuchin monk confirmed the strange behaviour, testifying that the woman - a devout Catholic - had at one point knocked over a church pew, hurling it towards the altar using just one hand.

Three of those sightings were on Walpole Island — located over 250 kilometres southwest of Toronto — according to the 2016 Canadian UFO Survey, which lists 1,131 reports from across the country.
The incidents in Walpole Island include someone reporting a "bright light remaining in one area but moving up and down slightly" on the evening of Jan. 3, 2016.
On Jan. 4, 2016 someone in Kahnawake reported seeing a "large yellow pyramid hovering in the sky" over the Mohawk community, located near Montreal.
Bright lights, flying objects
Most of the 2016 sightings reported by First Nations were in Ontario and Quebec, including one on the Sagamok First Nation on May 27, when someone there spotted a "bright light moving very fast before disappearing."

For a long time, Tom DeLonge's interest in aliens came out in small ways. In the early years of Blink-182, he would read about abductions and quantum physics for hours as the band drove from gig to gig through the desert. For 1999's Enema of the State, the multi-platinum album that launched the group to TRL megastardom, the singer/guitarist wrote the song "Aliens Exist." And in the years that followed, as DeLonge founded a tech company, continued to play with Blink and started the band Angels and Airwaves, he kept researching what he calls "the phenomenon," the collection of eyewitness accounts that has led generations to believe we're not alone.
But since DeLonge parted ways with Blink-182 in 2015, his interest in extraterrestrials has become more than a hobby. "The more I got into it, the more I realized it was all real," he tells Rolling Stone. "Then I was like, 'OK, what am I going to do about it?'" So he started spreading the word. He began creating a multi-part, multi-platform rollout of an entirely new philosophy, one based on the theory that aliens have been visiting Earth for most of our species' existence - and the only way for us to have a prosperous future on the planet is if we take that into account, and soon.

"Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered. . . . We are not alone in the universe, they have been coming here for a long time. . . . I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet, and the UFO phenomenon is real." - Doctor Edgar Mitchell, 6th man to walk on the moon (source)(source)(source)As recent as a decade ago, avid UFO and extraterrestrial researchers were unable to speak openly about their research without being ridiculed. Today, the topic has gained considerable credibility and popularity, so much so that not only are high ranking figures from military, political, and academic spheres speaking out, but also popular global figures as well, and particularly at prestigious conferences around the world. Previously classified documents that have been released from dozens of governments around the world have also allowed this topic to enter the respected public domain.
The 2011 Global Competitiveness Forum, at which a number of prominent scientists attended, featured a lecture by Jacques Vallee, notable for co-developing the first computerized mapping of Mars for NASA, and for his work at SRI International on the network information centre for ARPANET, on the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon.

Those stories are being collected in a project documenting indigenous knowledge, beliefs and experience with the supernatural among members of 17 tribes in the region. It's the first large-scale effort of its kind, says Kawerak Inc., a Native nonprofit corporation in Northwest Alaska that is running the project.
The project aims to connect past traditions with contemporary life, according to Julie Raymond-Yakoubian, social science program director with Kawerak. It will unveil unique cultural understandings of the environment - understandings that have historically been documented through a Western lens, Raymond-Yakoubian wrote in an email.
"A big motivation for this project was to be able to state Bering Strait understandings of the environment, on the terms of our tribes," she wrote.
Alaska has a long history of described supernatural occurrences.

According to a new UFO reference book, self-published by two UFO experts, California is the top state with the most UFO sightings in the country. California is followed by Florida, Texas, Washington and Pennsylvania respectively. New York came in at 6th followed by Arizona, Illinois, Michigan and Ohio.
The "UFO Sightings Desk Reference: United States of America 2001-2015" is a deep data dive into UFO sightings reported to The National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) and the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) from 2001 to 2015, explains author and UFO columnist Cheryl Costa.
She used both databases every week looking for New York sightings for her column in the weekly Syracuse New Times, she said, and started publishing tables for number of sightings in each New York county, shape of UFOs, when they were reported, etc.
