The influx of strange lights in the skies of Bucks County has drawn the attention of UFO enthusiasts from around the country. Believers are gathering at Bucks County Community College on Saturday, January 24 for the annual UFO convention.

That seems to be the case...Is there usually this much action in the skies, the amount reported in the past few months? I'm not an avid UFOlogist nor do I follow the subject but lately the news is daily on the sightings.

Enormous Rise in Local UFO Sightings
"Through the summer it went up 700-percent," said Bob Gardner the State Section Director of MUFON.
According to the Mutual UFO Network, or MUFON, Pennsylvania usually gets eight to 10 sightings per month throughout the state. Last July, there were 63 across the state, and 114 total for the whole year. Of the total, more than 40 were in Bucks County alone.
"We're trying to figure out what's going on in Bucks County especially the Oxford Valley Mall area, that's where a lot of these sightings originated and they've just grown from there," Bob said. What people are seeing differs from witness to witness. The objects vary from star-like shapes, to triangles, to boomerangs and delta-like formations. Those had three white lights and one red light in the center.
Mysterious creatures and UFO sightings baffle Pennsylvanians
Pennsylvania Ufologist Stan Gordon is reporting that UFO and other unusual strange incidents came in during 2008 from 50 counties - up from 37 counties the previous year. Giant birds - also known as Thunderbirds - Bigfoot and UFOs continue to be reported in the Keystone state.
Motorists in Wasgington County traveling along a major route in May pulled over to watch as a ''huge dark colored flying creature that looked more like a giant bat than a bird'' was low flying as it passed over the cars.
A Warren County woman reported in May that a Bigfoot-like creature climbed onto her home deck as she watched from inside.
