Whether you have a tin foil hat or not, You will not believe the amount of UFO sightings in Illinois this year.

I guess it's our turn to become a hot spot. Earlier this year the folks in the Pentagon released information about their UFO military program that handles investigations and the 22 million dollars spent on hunting them. They even released a video of the Military tracking a few of these unidentified flying objects. But it really seemed to fall on deaf ears because a few weeks afterward no one was talking about it. Does anyone remember the Battle of Los Angeles in 1942?

Your either a believer or not but with this many reports of UFO's this year across Illinois, it really makes you think... Are we really alone?
