Last November, travel-guide company Frommer's named Kansas City one of 10 cities to visit around the globe in 2012. The Paris of the Plains was the only American city on the list. And, yeah, this past year, our schedule has been filled with tourism-friendly events. But humans weren't the only ones answering the call to visit KC. Apparently, extraterrestrials had been hanging over Kansas City's skyline. The local chapter of the Mutual UFO Network counted 87 sightings in the metro — more than anywhere else in the world last October. Metro spotters have recorded footage and photos and claim to have seen crafts with lights, giant triangle-shaped ships and your standard gray flying saucers fluttering around. Sure, one sighting ended up being an army skydiving team, and others are thought to be planes from Whitman Air Force Base. But most remain a mystery, and we welcome our little green tourists. Now if they'd just spend some green.
