Throughout history, humans have stared into the skies above and wondered if we are really alone in the universe. While the scientific community pretty much agrees that microbial life does exist elsewhere, there is still a lot of debate about the possibility of intelligent life. And if there is intelligent life, have we ever been visited? UFO sightings date back to ancient times. Archaeologists have discovered UFO's painted inside cave dwellings dating back thousands of years. Wherever there is civilizations, there are sightings of objects in the sky. East Liverpool, Ohio and the surrounding area are no exception. Contrary to popular belief, many area residents have reported seeing strange things in the sky.
