Something Out There?


Throughout the ages there have been tales of life from beyond, from the next frontier. Some of these stories include personal anecdotes and maybe even footage, typically filmed with potato level quality. Even in New Jersey there have been many claims of paranormal extraterrestrial activity. In this brief article, we will be reviewing the credibility of some recent claims.

Here is a map (for students), created to help visually express the information presented:

In New Jersey alone there were over a hundred NUFORC (National UFO Reporting Center) sightings from January 2022 through March 2023. Based on the NATIONAL UFO Reporting Center Online Database, many of the reports are near the populated cities of New York and Philadelphia and near the coastlines. Logic would support this pattern, since the more people in an area, the more people that might turn in a report. Although the true identity of the reported UFO (Unidentified Flying Object)/UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) may be uncertain, many of these reports are believable to a certain degree. Several sightings have been reported at around the same time, which may also support the idea that something was seen. Over a hundred sightings have been reported since the start of 2022 within NJ.

All of these sightings are shrouded in mystery. It is up to you to decide what you do and don’t believe. Although the truth about the sightings may never be known, recording and analyzing sightings and other reports are one step closer to solving the mysteries that each new U.F.O. contributes to.
