Aliens Anyone?


WASHINGTON State-Did you know that July 2 was UFO Awareness Day? Interestingly, a report by analysts at shows Washington State, home of the National UFO Reporting Center, has reported the highest number of UFO sightings per capita.

The analysis used data from the National UFO Reporting Center and the US Census to find out which states have the most reported UFO sightings per capita. Washington, Montana, and Vermont grabbed the top three spots and Alaska and Maine rounded out the top five. It may (or may not) be notable that the five states were all situated in the northern part of the country while the bottom five were in the south, which might just suggest a stronger belief in UFOs among residents in the northern part of the US.

States with the fewest sightings are Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, Mississippi and Alabama.

A UFO is anything in the sky that can't be identified. In the late 1940s, the US Air Force started using the phrase "unidentified flying object" to describe any type of mysterious aircraft. When we hear the word UFO, we might start thinking of flying saucers filled with green aliens. The truth is less exciting. Most UFOs are later identified as drones, satellites, or weather balloons. But even after decades of research, up to 5% of UFO reports remain unexplained. Is this proof of alien visitation? Or just an elaborate 60-year hoax?
