D00D, I totally agree with you! I grew up in a very rural area of Texas. I've been "into" UFOs and looking at the sky since I was just a young
lad. Living in the country I've always had access to a great view of the sky as there are no major cities around to obscure the view with light. My
whole child hood and teenage years I searched for a sighting of something, anything that I could chalk up to being unidentifiable. While I did see a
few things flying around that were weird, a realistic explanation would always arise to calm my excitement. I never gave up looking however. I
started looking into this site as a guest about a year and a half ago. The more threads I saw the more I was convinced that, on this site I might
find some answers to the questions I had my whole life. (I joined a couple of days ago, finally.) ATSers, in my opinion, must be among the most
intelligent people on the net.
Anyways, to answer your inquiry.....concerning more frequency in sightings.................
I live near the Stephenville, Texas area, where in 2008 mass sightings were reported. A few days before Christmas 2011. I had my first sighting. It
was the strangest thing I've ever seen. I searched for logic but the most logical thing I could think of was that the objects in question where
unidentifiable. A few weeks later, on mufon, I found a similar report that described objects of the same appearance and behavior. This report was
from a few miles north of my location and several days after my sighting.
Then in mid January I had another sighting of two objects that were almost identical in appearance to what I saw December. This sighting didn't last
nearly as long as my first but was unexplainable just the same.
And finally, Around the middle of February, my wife and I had another sighting similar to the first encounter I had in December. This sighting lasted
a considerable amount of time and again, displayed similarities in appearance to the first sighting. I
In all three of my sightings, multiple objects could be observed, and in all three cases the multiple objects seemed to be working together in some
Now what gets me is, not the fact that I finally saw something I couldn't explain. It is the fact that in almost thirty years I had no "legit"
sighting , despite constant searching; and in a period of about two and a half months I have three of the strangest experiences in my life.
Its no answer to whats going on by any means but I agree with you. Something seems to be on the rise.
I'm sure skeptics will have all kinds of answers to your question..............
Sightings arent on the rise.....People are just more connected now than ever before. Sudden Global communication just gives the illusion of an
increase in reports.
Tech is allowing more people than ever before to own cameras and computers and this is the reason cases seem to be on the rise.
I wouldn't buy any of that kinda junk.
S&F for ya. Keep on denying that ignorance. Some day we may get some answers.
