Hunt The Wumpus
If you can predict when and where some phenomenon will occur
or be observed
then perhaps you understand something about the world.
These pages will attempt to bring my experience in hard-headed
data science to the analysis of (primarily) sighting data
combined with any other data series I find online
to answer questions
and/or provide evidence of aerial and underwater phenomena.

Still Under Construction
Teaser: sea-ice density across the Arctic Ocean
highly correlates with UFO sightings
Correlating daily sea-ice from sat radar returns against
daily UFO sightings shows interesting geographic patterns
suggesting folklore about "Siberian UFO bases" may hold some water.
Teaser: Voyager probes seemed to change UFO activity
The smoothed UFO sightings curve seems to support the
stats model that finds alternating alarm and habituation as
the 2 Voyager probes first approached and then receded from
the outer planets.
The visit by V2 to Neptune seems to have created a permanent
state of "alert".
NUFORC monthly sightings 1950-2000
Teaser: things that predict UFO sightings:
Ocean temperatures at interesting locations e.g.
Sea of Japan, NE Siberia, location of Atlantis.
Polar sea ice
Seasonal blooms of polar plankton
Cosmic ray neutron counts
Some very preliminary plots.
Expected initial pages due 01 Dec 2020 (but be prepared for slippage).
