With World UFO day on July 2nd, mysterious objects flying through the night sky are on the top of Americans’ minds. Many Americans are going to grab their binoculars and go looking for (supposed) alien spacecraft. So, where are people seeing the most UFOs?
Thanks to the folks at SatelliteInternet, a list was recently created of an analysis of the states with the most UFO sightings per capita. From the report, if you live in Idaho look in the sky. Idaho has the highest number of sightings of unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, per capita.
As for us in North Carolina, we have one of the least numbers of sightings. I know, I’m bummed out too. You’d think with all our mountains they would hang out there. (I still think they do!) However, your neighbors in South Carolina rank right in the middle with more opportunities to see a UFO.
