Paranormal phenomena and forteana occurs on a 9.6 year cycle, according to damon knight

In the late 60s, Damon Knight indexed all of Charles Fort’s reported phenomena and claimed that the data happened on a 9.6-year cycle. For example, from 1877-1892, there were peaks in 1877, 1883, 1889, and 1892. This is detailed in his book Charles Fort: Prophet of the Unexplained.

There also seems to be a correlation between Mars’ movements and paranormal phenomena.

I read this in an excerpt from [[ John Keel ]]’s Anomaly newsletter 4 from July 1970, pages-59-64 (file: John-A-Keel-Anomaly-4-July-1970-pages-59-64)

[[ in 1966, UFO sightings happened more often on the 10th of the month and the 21st-24th ]]

tangentiallyrelated to the Wednesday phenomenon and my efforts to trace the different time theories people have behind [[ high strangeness ]]
