Reports of UFOs continue at lower levels this year with March 2017 totals reported today by the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).
“U.S. totals reached 223 March cases which is .71 reports per million population,” according to Robert Powell, MUFON’s Director of Research. “These are cases that occurred during the month of March. We have not had a March that low since 2008.”
Powell reviewed March cases going back to 2008, when 671 reports were filed. The chart shows total first quarter cases from 2008 through 2017.
Another statistical stand-out was New Mexico, Powell stated, where its six March cases position them at twice the national average for three months in a row.
Populations aside, California remains the top reporting state with 34 March cases (.89). Florida had 16 cases (.83); and Texas was a close third with 15 cases (.58).
MUFON accumulates cases during any given month that also occurred that month, and then waits 30 days to allow cases for that month to also be reported the following month. Additional cases are added in the future as they are reported.
