Many of the sightings reported are sensationalized, with usually a lot of information missing.
I’m afraid many also fail to follow-up on their initial leads, and many reports just remain forgotten.
Some incidents could be UFO balloons (please see: http://dandare.wordpress.com/2007/05/19/ufo-balloons-what-are-they/ for more details, from a previous article).

However, as i have said before, i am not sure what value they are to any UFO research.
Please be patient whilst i catch up on information/links/articles…. thank you.
