What Is Behind the Decline in UFO Sightings? - The Guardian

According to the two major online sites for reporting UFOs, there has been a 55% drop in sighting reports since 2014. Are UFOs a dead subject, reporter Philip Jaekl asks? Well, first of all, he makes the same error that just about everyone makes. The number of sighting reports is not equal to the number of true unidentifieds. Most reports of UFO are misidentifications. So maybe what this reveals is that people are more aware of what they are seeing and are not so quick to label what they are seeing as a truly unidentified flying object. Secondly, we have not seen any polls showing a decline in the belief in UFOs. But we'll grant one thing: the sociopolitical scene is weirder than anything UFOlogical these days. The weird has turned pro, and left UFOs in the dust. For a discussion of where UFO studies might be going today, check out the interview with Ryan Sprague on the Paranormal Podcast: Moving UFOlogy Forward. (PH)
