Top Ten (or Five, or Fifteen) Lists About UFOs

In retrospect for 2015, here's a collection of lists about UFOs.

Top Ten World UFO “Hotspots”

Niagara-on-the-lake, Ontario: On the south shore of Lake Ontario, a group called Orbwatch has been logging sightings of lights moving over the water. 
Stephenville, Texas: In 2008, UFOs began appearing in great numbers in and around this town, resulting in international attention. Sightings continue today. 
Rachel, Nevada: This tiny hamlet is near the famed Area 51, along the “UFO Highway,” where many UFO enthusiasts have said they have seen odd lights flying over Groom Lake and the surrounding mountains. 
Hessdalen, Norway: An ongoing scientific project to observe nocturnal lights has been in operation here for decades. 
Mount Shasta, California: Several New Age movements believe that this area is a spiritual centre where aliens and underground Lemurians live, and UFOs are often reported over the mountain. 
Santa Rosa, Florida: The magazine Popular Mechanics did an analysis of UFO report trends in March 2009 and listed this region, near an airbase, as having more UFO sightings than other areas. 
Surrey, British Columbia: The “Surrey Corridor” has had an abundance of UFO sightings since at least 1989. 
Warminster, England: Although the wave of UFO sightings here exploded in the 1960s, reports have continued intermittently since then. 
Saugauche County, Colorado: According to the Computer UFO Network, this American county has the highest rate of UFO sightings in the USA – almost 3,000 per 100,000 people. 
Phoenix, Arizona: When the Phoenix Lights appeared in 1997, they were considered an interesting flap. But then, there was a repeat of the event ten years later, and sightings still continue today.

I'll make a gratuitous comment before I head off to the laundromat (understanding you do not necessarily find these reasons compelling, Chris).

Top Five Reasons Why UFOs May be Alien Spacecraft

> The reported speed and maneuverability of UFOs is beyond any craft made on Earth.

These are actually good reasons to doubt many ufology claims.
1) how do vehicles travelling through our atmosphere at speeds up to 5000 MPH not create sonic books?
2) how do vehicles making 90 degree turns and stops and starts at thousands of miles per hour not kill their crews?

[#2 would make a good comedy sketch. We see a witness describing the movements of a UFO. Cut to the "bridge" of an alien ship as the captain barks out orders to perform said impossible manoeuvres. We then see the alien crew thrown all over the bridge, yelling "Oh, Jeez" and such, some begging the captain to fly in a safer manner. Several other UFO clichés can be added in.)

> Intelligent extraterrestrial life likely exists in the universe.

Negated by #2 in the preceding list.

> Government documents show that some high-ranking military officers considered UFOs as alien craft.

Opinions without corroborating evidence.

> Many UFO sightings cannot be explained.

An argument from ignorance.

> Reports of UFOs going back into ancient history show that aliens have been monitoring us for many years.

Opinions without corroborating evidence.
