The only unfiltered UFO reports I look at regularly are those
reported to NUFORC that occur in my area. It's been my
impression (only anecdotally, I'm afraid) that there are a
sufficient number of still-unidentified aerial phenomena with
individual lights showing described here and elsewhere to give
me a sense of cognitive dissonance when I read about them.

I've seen descriptions which include individual lights on a
craft, yet it doesn't seem to come up as a red flag for many
people. That's why I asked if there had been any effort to keep
tabs on them.
