New York based journalist Cheryl Costa revealed the latest figures after reports flooded into the Mutual UFO Network — the world’s biggest civilian UFO group — and the National UFO Reporting Centre.
Many could be explained as aircraft misidentifications or natural phenomena but around five per cent remain unsolved and defy explanation.
She said: «Top investigators with MUFON tell me about 5 per cent of annual reported UFO sightings fall in this mysterious unknown category.
«Percentage wise that means nationally we have about 500 of these mysterious unknown events yearly, with an average of about 40 per month.
«That’s a big deal.”
