Northeast Ohio is a UFO Sighting Hot Zone
Dale Harder with the Cleveland Ufology Project, one of the worlds oldest UFO organizations established in 1952, said the numbers back-up a large number of sightings in the greater Cleveland area. He said sighting statistics from the Mutual UFO Network, or MUFON, place Ohio in the top five for UFO reports.
Harder, who said he's witnessed numerous UFO sightings, also admits with growing technology there are also a growing number of fake sightings or hoax videos out there. "I believe that this area, in Cleveland here, is a hot spot," Harder said. "Everybody's carrying a cell phone these days and everybody's picking things up, aside from those who like to perpetrate hoaxes, there is a lot of garbage out there so you have to be careful."
Highly viewed northeast Ohio UFO sightings recorded by Sam Phillips and Michael Lee Hill have generated plenty of commentary from those calling the videos fake, skeptics and believers for more than ten years. Hill agrees this region of the county has a high amount of sightings compared to the rest of the U.S.
No one yet knows what these objects are, even though they affect aviation safety and possibly national security. The phenomenon has been officially acknowledged by numerous foreign governments. For these reasons and many others, Leslie Kean concludes that the UFO problem must be more widely recognized and ultimately solved through an unbiased scientific investigation.
