|This isnt a UFO Report, this is more just of a question and I couldnt find an email address on your website to ask it ..im a vivid skywatcher and im quite interested in this stuff ..I was watching a show the other day on A&E and it showed quite a few hot spots in the World and one spot was in Yakima Park in Washington State ..On their it said that some nights up to 25 unusual lights can be seen in the sky. What im wondering is if its so active there why dont people investigate into it more? Or set up cameras there to see whats going on or something this makes no sense to me as to why people dont do this if this is an active spot ....if you could answer some of these question that would be great ..im really curious why no scientific studies are being done there and camera set-ups ..

Dear Mr. ((name deleted)),
Thank you very much for the note.
Our contact information, for both me and for the webmaster, is on our home page. Just scroll down, until you see "Contacts," and you will see our respective e-addresses there.
I know the author of the book you allude to, and I consider him to be a cautious writer. However, I disagree that the town of Yakima is a "hotspot," of some kind. In point of fact, UFO's are reported from all areas of the country and world, and I don't think a person is more apt to see a UFO in Yakima, than he/she is in any other town of the U. S..
Please go to the "Report Database" of our website, accessed here...
and you will quickly see that there are many towns from which we have received multiple sightings, over the years.
Thank you for your interest!
