Whether or not you're personally a believer in extraterrestrial life, plenty of reports of UFOs around the Twin Ports region have come in over the years. The National UFO Reporting Center offers a detailed repository of sightings from around the country, broken down by state. Each report is user-submitted with details of date and time, location, and description of what was seen.

For those of you that are skeptical, it is worth remembering that "UFO" doesn't mean "aliens", it means "unidentified flying object" - something flying in the sky that can't be clearly identified. People tend to correlate UFOs directly with aliens, but they aren't necessarily the same thing. It's also worth noting that these are user-submitted sightings. Take that as you will. You'll see in some of the posts that there are possible explanations offered for what the objects may be.
