Encounters with strange phenomena and reports of UFOs seem to occur in a cyclic fashion, with the incidence of such events varying over the decades. 1973 was one of the more active years, and as it happens, 2023 now seemed to be as well. Are we heading into another increase in reports? Only time will tell, and will the landscape change now that we have the modern conveniences of carrying cameras everywhere? So far, it seems that if the intelligence behind the phenomena has anything to do with it, it won't allow itself to be recorded.
