The mystery intensifies for the existence or non-existence of UFOs (UFOs – unidentified flying objects) or UAPs (unexplained aerial phenomena), with the state of Maryland in the USA has reported 1,923 cases to the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) since 1995.

Testimonies vary: Others speak of a “black triangle with green lights,” others of a “classic flying saucer,” others of an oval-shaped craft that “stood still for about a minute and a half,” and many more.

Reports of the phenomenon have been compiled into a database that shows the first recorded sighting in Maryland dates back to since May 15, 1946 — but had not been reported until June 2017.

For decades, the official policy of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was that commercial airline pilots and other civilians should not they must bother to report UAPs or UFOs to the appropriate federal agency.

Now NUFORC director Peter Davenport has said that his team flooded with new reports, as the UFO debate is… “feverish” in the halls of Congress, inside the Pentagon, and in the media.

“It’s encouraging to me that so many people are now breaking their silence,” Davenport told CBS News. “We’re getting a lot more reports than just six months or a year ago,” he said characteristically. “There are reports of UFOs probably from most cities in the country.”

However, California is reported to have the most UFO sightings of any US state, with more than 15,000 testimonialswhile there are reports of more than 200 unidentified flying objects this year alone.
