Is that a UFO?
Last year, data analyst Adam Crahen took of one of the largest databases of alleged UFO encounters online, maintained by the the aforementioned National UFO Reporting Center, and plotted all 58,828 reports submitted between 1995 and 2014 on a map of the United States. The final product is an impressive, or perhaps frightening, green swath across nearly the entirety of the United States, seemingly suggesting that UFOs are not only here, but American airspace is just lousy with them.

When laying that same map of reported UFO sightings over a U.S. map showing the locations of all military installations, an interesting trend starts to emerge: many of the regions that seem to show a high frequency of UFO reports coincide with the locations of military installations. For the conspiracy minded, this might mean our alien visitors have taken a particular interest in what our military is up to… but others might be inclined to conclude that many of these supposed UFO sightings may be nothing more than misidentified military aircraft.
This isn't a new idea. It was noticed far back at the beginning of UFO-logy that the majority of sightings occur around military installations and airports. UFO enthusiasts were quick to decide that it meant that aliens were interested in military operations (including space exploration), rather than coming to the conclusion that the majority of UFO's were actually misidentified airplanes or helicopters that are concentrated in these same areas.

Lately UFO enthusiasts like claiming that aliens are watching space exploration and following manned space flights. This makes as much sense to me as alleging that someone from China has journeyed to my neighborhood to watch me walk to the house next door.

Subject: I have a black cat.
Believer: Black cats are bad luck.
Non-believer: It's just a cat.
Crackpot: Black cats are part of the New World Order government conspiracy.
Skeptic: I can test if black cats are more or less lucky than another cat.
Cynic: You only have a black cat to gain power and prestige.
