2011 was a good year for aliens…or at least for UFO sightings. According to the Mutual UFO Network, or MUFON, there was an increase of 67 percent of reported sightings of unidentified flying objects in 2011, as compared to 2008. That’s quite an increase. Are more unusual occurrences, are people are paying more attention, or are they just not afraid to tell others what they’ve seen?
The Huffington Post has issued a list of the Top 11 UFO stories for 2011. The top 11 includes stories about previously confidential government papers, a petition sent to President Obama asking for all UFO information held by the White House to be released, and a road marker erected on the site of the most widely publicized alien abduction story in history which occurred 50 years ago.
