• Cylinder UFO - No Lights, No Wings
  • Huge Spaceship - No Sound
  • Glowing Orbs - Pilot Report

Is this the year? Will 2024 finally be the year that all, or at least most, is revealed by the Federal Government? UFO sightings seem to be increasing at an almost alarming rate across the country and all over our little blue planet. Even the Feds have admitted there's something up there, they say they don't know what it is, or do they? Arkansas saw a slight decrease in reported UFO sightings so far in 2023, let's take a look at a few. 

The following information is compiled from reports to the National UFO Reporting Center at NUFORC.org. We have no idea how accurate any of the reports are, only that the reports do exist.

From Texarkana to Jonesboro, Fayetteville to Pine Bluff, and everywhere in between, the map shows Arkansas is pretty well covered with sightings over the years. Overall UFO reports (I know, everyone is calling them UAPs these days, I'm old school) for Arkansas are down slightly at 40 for 2023, 51 were reported in 2022, and 47 in 2021. That's 138 logged reports to the Center in the last 3 years.

Cylinder UFO - AIrbus 320 Sighting

A fascinating observation was made by a paramedic during a flight from Austin, Texas to Knoxville, Tennessee on October 16 around 9 AM local time. The witness said he saw a cylinder-shaped UFO flying below his plane in the opposite direction.

I witnessed an oblong, cylindrical wingless object at an estimated 15-20 thousand foot altitude.

The witness discussed the sighting with the pilot after they landed and discovered they did not see it on radar but the Airbus would have been cruising at 34,000 feet, and flying at 450 knots, the object was only visible, according to the witness, for about 10 seconds.

The object was completely white, cylindrical without lights and without wings.
