According to this article, I just found out that North Carolina has had 7,570 reported UFO sightings since 1940. I am not sure who these sightings are reported to but someone keeps track of them, evidently. Based on number of reports, NC is in the top 10 states; however it ranks 21st in chances to see a ufo.

The 10 states where you're most likely to see a UFO are (in descending order): Wyoming, Vermont, Montana, North Dakota, Alaska, Hawaii, New Mexico, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine. The 10 states where you're most likely to see a UFO are (in descending order): Wyoming, Vermont, Montana, North Dakota, Alaska, Hawaii, New Mexico, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine.

The 10 states where you're least likely to see one: Florida, Texas, New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Arizona, New Jersey, Michigan and Maryland.

In total, there have been 259,691 UFO sightings in the U.S. over the years, says Casino.org, prompting more than 40,000 Americans to take out insurance against being abducted by aliens.
40,000 people have alien abduction insurance... I am surprised that this is a thing and at the same time I am surprised that the number is that low.

I have seen UFOs in both Maine and New Jersey, so both one of the most likely and least likely places. Both were super spooky experiences and all these years later remain quite vivid memories.8-!

I too have seen one, in NC no less. I took an astronomy class in high school, senior year I think. We were out on the baseball field with the class telescope for a night viewing. All of a sudden we were lit up by an enormous spotlight from the sky. It lasted like 5 seconds, then turned off. We could all see a large dark triangle shape flying away. It was fairly tall too from what I remember, and it moved very slowly.

Where can I sign up to be a UFO Pilot? USAJobs.gov is a no go, maybe I should try through the Space Force?

Concerning UFO abduction insurance - I want to take out a large policy. And I would like to know what one would hypothetically have to do to successfully file a claim after experiencing a Close Encounter of the Third Kind?

According to what I read at lunch, there are several companies that sale alien abduction insurance and a few have paid some claims. While some policies may promise $10,000,000 worth of coverage payouts are some times limited to $1 per year per incident. So if you are shopping for alien abduction insurance, you must read the small print.

(cough) Er, UFO literally stands for Unidentified Flying Object. (cough) Not, like, Alien Flying Saucer, only in Russian or whatever, thereby explaining the weird lettering (a la CCCP being the Russian abbreviation for USSR -- the C being an S in fact and the P being an R in fact).

Also, they sold tons of life insurance policies to Jews just before and during WW2, IIRC. They were willing to sell them knowing you needed a death certificate to collect and a government disappearing people wasn't likely to issue a death certificate for said disappeared people. So I'm guessing this is a scam. Just a WAG (and I'm not spelling it out because I'm sure y'all know what that stands for and I'm trying to cuss less).

But we can talk about the family theory that (relative) must have been abducted by aliens, given a memory block so they don't remember it and, boy, would that explain a lot about (relative)! ;)
