IN THIS EPISODE: In October, 2023 Paranormality Magazine came out with a short article listing what they believed to be the top ten UFO sightings of all time. It was a short article, just a page or so, mostly just a list… and not listed in any particular order – just the top ten in their opinion. But I thought it’d be fun to expand on each one of those entries and bring a fuller picture… and I’ve arranged them in order of year… from oldest to newest.
