Greg raises an interesting question. That is, why is it that
certain people see a UFO and others never do? Some people are
even UFO sighting magnets. Is it a function of the sighter or
the sightee or both? Judging from his experience, it seems that
the ufos were localized to the Hudson Valley. When he moved
away, the sightings stopped. This does suggest that the
appearance of a UFO is independent of the observer.  A witness
may have multiple sightings just because s/he stayed in the same
geographic location.

However, some witnesses say they feel a psychic connection with
the ufo. Greg's experience is also consistent with a scenario
where the witness has this relationship with the object. Suppose
in the case of the Hudson Valley, the ufos were attracted by
some special individual who lived in the valley. The UFO would
be like an apport in a seance, and the special 'attractor'
individual would play the role of the medium. People like Greg
who also saw the object would be like passive seance attendees
seeing the materialized object just because they happened to be
in the right place at the right time. When Greg moved away, he
not only moved away from the geographic location, but also from
the attractor individual. We can say with certainty that Greg
was not that person since his sightings stopped when he moved

If we can accept that telepathic communication takes place when
some people meet non-human entities, then it is not such a
stretch that some people more attuned to this medium of
communication might also be UFO attractors. Perhaps the role of
an attractor individual in materializations can also account for
the evolution of the UFO phenomenon, for example, from air ships
to saucers to triangles to orbs, and the appearance of other
culturally consistent phenomena such as fairies, etc.

This is not to say that the nuts-and-bolts, from another planet,
class of ufos does not exist. But perhaps we should be open to
the possibility that some ufos might be materializations
facilitated by special 'attractor' individuals.
