The United States Has A New UFO Capital

UFO sightings have ramped up in recent years, including high-level military personnel catching some on video. Now the United States has created a UFO capital.

The United States is starting to take extraterrestrial sightings more seriously. There was an actual meeting at the Pentagon, where top officials discussed all the footage from high-ranking military personnel finding UFOs. Well, now they are called UAP (unidentified aerial phenomena). Still, things seem to be leaning towards the states mostly believing that alien life is somewhere in the cosmos. Now, there is an official UFO capital in the states. Based on the aggregate date of sightings per capita, meaning how many sightings per a large amount of population in certain areas, Washington has been chosen to represent the alien capital.

This data gathered that Washington took some time. The National UFO Reporting Center data was used in the analysis of the sightings, and this data obtained was taken from January 2000 to January 2021. Picking a UFO capital to represent the country was something thought through a great deal. Washington beat out every other state with a reported 88.03 sightings per 100,000 residents. There were other states in the country that came close to those numbers. For instance, Vermont came in second place with 87.98 sightings per 100,000 residents. This data was studied and provided by plenty of states, though no other state was able to beat out Washington.

Surprisingly, the most sightings recorded were from California. The state amassed a staggering 15,280 times people saw a UFO. However, when the data was matched up to sightings per capita like the rest of the states, California only managed 38.95 sightings per 100,000 residents. The U.S. representative from Washington, Mike Gallagher made a statement about the funding needed to study UFOs. According to Gallagher, “We must ensure the military and intelligence community are armed with the best possible information, capital, and scientific resources to defeat our enemies and maintain military and technology superiority.” What is crazy is that presenting this kind of data 10 years ago might have been cause for concern, but now it seems that politicians and scientists are looking at the data a lot closer.

With all the information gathered, UFO sightings might increase. Or rather, there could be more of an emphasis on trying to capture these aerial phenomena in space. The James Webb Telescope just recently released the first images taken of deep space, and they look hauntingly beautiful. Maybe this telescope could be used to see if any sort of flying craft can be captured in real time somewhere deep in space that we can’t quite make it to, just yet. Either way, the world of aliens is starting to become more of a real possibility.

UFO sightings have been spoken about in media for decades on end, but a lot of them have never been taken as seriously as they are now. Even abduction stories have been ignored for decades. We are not saying those stories are true, but what if they are? At least now we can take the unexplained aircraft videos are now being seen as factual. It’s one thing to hear some random person speaking about seeing something in the sky, but when a high-ranking jet fighter captures a craft in real-time, believability rises quickly. If you want to see a UFO, you might want to head to Washington.
