UFO map reveals extraterrestrial hotspots across the US: Is your state on the list?

It seems aliens like to party in Las Vegas too!

Data shared by the National UFO Reporting Center shows The US hotspot for UFOs is Lincoln County, Nevada.

Lincoln County saw the most UFO sightings across all US counties between 2000 and 2023, at 820.9 per 100,000 residents, the non-profit reported, according to Axios.

The county is notably home to the top-secret military base known as Area 51 — which has long been associated with unknown phenomena.

East Coast hotspots included upstate New York’s Hamilton County (451.9) and Dare County, North Carolina (371.4).

The Center, which operates off user-submitted reports of unidentified aerial phenomena, says nearly 113,000 alien sightings have been submitted between 2000 and 2023.

The states with the most sightings in 2023 were California (440), Florida (293), Texas (230), Washington (212) and New York (156), the Center reported.

Overall, the sightings reported in 2023 (4,186) were down 19% from 2022 (5,174), the Center said.

The center’s webmaster Christian Stepien spoke with The Post last month about the two most intriguing videos it received in 2023: A spooky sighting in Texas and a daring duel in Utah.

 The Texas incident occurred on Jan. 4 over the small town of Forney at about 9:20 p.m., and featured a glowing object resembling a computer cursor in the sky.

“That is not a motherf–ing airplane!” the witness, an unnamed Texan is heard exclaiming on the 13-second video. The Center purposefully withholds names of witnesses to protect their identities.

The states with the most sightings in 2023 were California (440), Florida (293), Texas (230), Washington (212) and New York (156).

Meanwhile, the Utah sighting took place in May 2021 near Arches National Park, and resembled a scene out of “Top Gun” with two spherical metal objects soaring by on the same flight path.

“There’s certainly a sign that there’s something anomalous going on and it would be nice if the government paid more attention and did some serious research,” Stepien said of the two peculiar clips, adding, “You can tell by the way that one guy [the Texan] is talking that he’s pretty blown away by what he’s looking at. A V-shaped craft.”

Last fall, the Pentagon launched a new portal where current and former service members, government employees and contractors can report UFO sightings

The online form will help the Department of Defense’s All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office compile accounts of unidentified aerial phenomena sightings to include in its congressionally mandated Historical Record Report, which is due to Congress by June 2024. 

The Pentagon investigated nearly 300 UFO — or, as they have since tried to rebrand them, Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena [UAP] — sightings between April 31, 2022, and April 30, 2023, according to a report submitted to Congress last year.

Some of these flying objects exhibited “concerning performance characteristics” including high-speed travel and “unusual maneuverability,” according to the report, which noted, “none of these UAP reports have been positively attributed to foreign activities.”
