In case you missed it, the US government recently announced that they've received over 350 new reports of "unidentified aerial phenomenon," also known as UFOs, 247 of which have occurred since March 5, 2021. While tracking down exactly where those UFO incidents took place has proven difficult, the search for more information led to the National UFO Reporting Center database. This database revealed that 113 UFO sightings were reported in Colorado in 2022, alone.
Here's a look at a few of the most notable sightings reported on this specific database. Whether or not any of these ended up in the official government log is unknown:
