Reuters news service reposted on June 23, 1996 that sightings are on the increase worldwide.
UFO sightings around the world have risen by more than 200 percent during the past year, a Brazilian expert said at a conference in Chile. Ademar Gevaerd, editor of UFO Magazine, was quoted in the Chilean daily La Tercera as saying Friday "there are places where there has been a 400 percent rise. This means a true wave of UFO's (Unidentified Flying Objects) visiting Earth, and I have more then 100 slides to prove it." The conference, organized by La Tercera and the Group of UFO Researchers, opened Friday and is expected to close on Sunday.
