There have been several reports of UFO Sightings in Eastern Iowa in just the past few months. Some cases date back a few years, but they all have one thing in common: they mostly remain unsolved mysteries.

Some of these sightings have logical explanations (northern lights, meteor showers, aircraft, low-flying drones, etc.) But some cases remain unresolved, leading us to ask more questions. Do you believe we are not alone? Do you believe in UFO's?

These sightings come from the National UFO Reporting Center  which holds a detailed repository of UFO sightings from around the country, as reported state-by-state. Each report is user-submitted with details of date and time, location, and description of what was seen. It is a fascinating study to review on a regular basis.
