A Rare UFO Spectacular of the Past (and near future?)
Back in the mid to late '60s, the United States was having a wave of UFO sightings. It was so intense that I managed to experience three UFO sightings from August 1965 to August 1967, the first two on Long Island, in Patchogue and in Medford (a month or two later) and one on Fire Island in July or August 1967 (both in New York state). UFO sightings slowed down though in 1969, the year the Air Force closed down their Blue Book office. As you can see in the first chart below, things inched up in 1972 before exploding with a UFO wave in the Fall of '73 over the eastern portion of the U.S. Again, it was so intense that one of my brothers saw a UFO fly over our house that was in Upstate New York at the time.
But again, shortly after that, things were slow on the UFO circuit in the United States. According to Larry Hatch's “*U* UFO Database” 1974 turned out to be as slow in activity as 1972. But that was not the case in Western Europe. As can be seen in both the graphs by year and the one with the monthly breakdown, there was a wave of activity in Europe in 1974. Actually the first sign was in December 1973 when, just after the wave numbers dropped off in the United States, western Europe's tally was twice as strong (or two months after the October peak in the U.S.). By March, when the wave peaked in western Europe, the UFO report numbers there left north America's numbers in the dust.
Interestingly, Belgium had two intense flaps on single days during this time. The first one occurred on March 2nd and the other one on April 14th. Midway between those two dates was a longer flap of about five days, from March 22 through March 26, that was primarily in France but most of the strangest cases came out of Sweden and Spain. For all three of these events, a UFO cycle that I discovered measured in days that I call my UFO Day Cycle 'A' (of 7.1436 days in length) was peaking. This cycle also peaked on October 17, 1973, or during the most intense phase of the American wave of 1973.
But the correlation to UFO wave cycles doesn't end there. The two Belgium flaps also matched peaks in my UFO Day Cycle 'B' (of 7.0076 days in length) plus during the French flap between those two dates. And to top it off, the French Flap also correlated with peaks in my two remaining Cycles; UFO Day Cycles 'C' (of 6.76 days in length) and 'D' (of 26 days in length). In other words, the two outer flaps (or about 21.5 days from the center of the inner flap) related to two UFO Day Cycles and the central one to all four of the UFO Day Cycles that I have discovered and am following in my research.
If you think that four of these cycles peaking together is a rare occurrence, you would be correct. As a matter of fact this happens only every 39.3 years. But the upcoming one is due very soon. I expect the next quadruple day cycle peak to occur on July 7 and 8 of 2013 (and that may extend a day or two before and after those dates as well). So, if you are planning to take the week off that contains Independence day, you may want to reschedule to the next week instead or include both in your vacation plans if UFO hunting is a possible activity you would like to try your luck at.
Where to camp out though is not easy to figure out. My best guess would normally be the west coast of the United States based on a theory of mine but, at the same time, the United States is currently experiencing a slump in activity while Australia seems to be picking up speed. So that may turn out to be the place to be. I will try to stay on top of activity for the next few months to get a better read on things and will let you all know as soon as I have a better grasp on the location situation.
