KANSAS CITY, Mo. - If you want a close encounter of the third kind, then Kansas City is where you'll be able to find it.
Last October, 87 UFO sightings were reported.
This is the most in the world for the month of October.
The increase was the main topic at the Missouri Mutual UFO Network Conference at the Westport Flea Market.
Experts say some are military planes from Whiteman Air Force Base, while others could be visitors from another world.
"We know Whiteman Air Force Base was under a yellow alert, for what my sources are, they said it was just training they are doing. We had a lot of activity going on at that time and there's something in this area. There's reports of light, some as large as a house", said MOUFON director Debbie Ziegelmeyer.
The UFO Networks say most sightings in October happen around Halloween.
However, a majority of those reported were earlier in the month.
