New map reveals where you’re most likely to see UFOs in the USA

With so many sightings of UFOs in the United States, what are your odds of seeing one?

There have been over 250,000 recorded UFO sightings in the United States — so are definitely not a rare occurrence.

However, in the past if you wanted to know which state to move to in order to avoid UFOs and abductions — or to increase your chances — you had to look up the statistics yourself to see which state had the least or most sightings.

Now that’s a thing of the past. Researchers at, who are always calculating odds and utilizing statistics in the gambling world, combed through UFO sighting statistics from the United States starting from the 1940s and going up to 2017.

There have been 250,000 UFO sightings in the United States alone.

The result of all this data is a nifty new map of the United States, with each state being clickable and displaying information, such as how likely you are to see a UFO in each state and how many sightings have been reported there total.

There’s also further information stating which years UFOs were sighted the most/least in the United States, and there is a box displaying the state with the highest odds of seeing a UFO and the state with the lowest odds.

This could seem like slightly useless technology and information, but there are thousands of Americans who either want to investigate UFOs or want to avoid abduction.

For instance, over 40,000 Americans have bought Alien Abduction Insurance. In case you’re wondering, AAI can cover everything from psychiatric care to alien pregnancy as a result of abduction, to cash payouts for being abducted and even payouts if you die from an abduction, depending on the policy.

There are just as many Americans who are enthralled with the thought of seeing a UFO as there are who are terrified of them. So, regardless of where you fall on that spectrum, the new interactive map is pretty interesting.
