Rather than large numbers, sightings in ME, NH and VT often have high strangeness .. abductions and missing time especially.
On 29 March 1966 in Henniker, NH an L-shaped box was seen on the ground supported by 4 legs. Lifting off, it maneuvered through some trees then shot upward. Traces were found in the dirt.
In October 1978 at Ludlow, VT, a domed deltoid was seen following power lines. It shot beams of light and broke up into square pieces.
On 22 August 1988 near Athens, ME, people in a tent saw a saucer land. A red ball came out and scouted around the area. The campers cannot account for some missing time.
